The first bottle of my 2009 en primeur orders that I’m busting open. And I think the second wine of Pontet Canet can’t be a bad place to start. Given the lack of age and probable inaccessible tannins, I popped the cork and stood this for 10 hours before pouring. Intense inky ruby color. A dense youthful aromatic coil of sweet blackcurrant, slightly smoky mulberry, pencil lead and freshly chopped green herbs. This dry, full-bodied wine has a smooth velvet texture, high acidity and young fine powdery tannins. The fruit is evenly loaded, blackcurrant and anise prevail on the long finish, with a hint of saltish birch at the end. 14% alc. A good representative wine for the Pauillac, can’t wait to drink Pontet-Canet itself! Drink now – 2030.

The 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou will eclipse the brilliant wines produced in 2005, 2003 and 2000. It will be interesting to see how the 2009 fares against the 2010 after twenty years of aging, but my money is on the 2009. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, this inky purple, unctuous wine possesses classic aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, blueberries, violets, licorice and Christmas fruitcake. Full-bodied and intense with Ducruandrsquo;s inimitable elegance and purity, it should firm up in the bottle after 7andndash;10 years of cellaring and last for 40andndash;50 years. Magnificent!

[Barrel tasting] This has an impressive powerful and hearty structure, with seductive floral, currant and licorice aromas and flavors, showing powerful tannins at the end. This sneaks up on you at the end. Structured and very, very powerful. The blockbuster tannins are sweet and fruit-coated. This is a classic, powerful style of Ducru. May be best yet. Wow.

Inky ruby. Intense mineral high notes complement aromas of cassis, smoke and quinine on the deep, very pure nose. Then seamless and graceful in the mouth, with very smooth, glossy, ripe black fruit and mineral flavors lifted by bright harmonious acidity, which confers a sense of refinement to all the plush fruit. The very long finish shows a persistent note of violet. Though this is an atypically big and creamy Ducru, it manages a precise delivery of archetypical Saint-Julien flavors and refinement.
