This might be something to behold in the future, but for early consumption it doesn't show too much. Sampled over a 7 hour period. It was closed though out. For the first few hours there was virtually no nose, tight, shut down big time. Full bodied with dark cherry fruit and and rich chocolates. High level tannins that dried out my finish. Something to pack away for a decade or two and keep your fingers crossed.

Warm and deep colors of browned plum greet your glass to open this fine, still young red. A plethora of aromas spring from the wine after 2 hours open. Smoke, tobacco, white oak, cassis, sage and coffee show distinctively on the nose. A touch of new leather, blue and blackberry frame the wine in your mouth. At mid palate, intense pepper and sage join black licorice as the wine powers it way to a long and full-bodied finish. A wine for the next 20 years. Just now beginning to find its grand potential.

A solid wine with berry, currant and mineral character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Racy. Alfred Tesseron is making excellent wine nearly every year now. One of the few 2002s better than 2001. Best after 2008.

Black in color, with aromas of blackberry, black licorice, tar, mineral and fresh flowers. Full-bodied and powerful, with ultrafine tannins that last for minutes on the palate. A polished, thought-provoking wine. Shows wonderful purity of Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2014.

RP: One can't say enough about the extraordinary quality proprietor Alfred Tesseron has achieved at Pontet-Canet over the last decade. The 2006 is another massive wine that may be as backward and concentrated as its nearby neighbor, Mouton Rothschild. Boasting a dense purple black color in addition to aromas of creme de cassis, incense, burning embers charcoal, and pain grille, it is monstrous in the mouth with huge flavor concentration, extremely high tannins, and significant extract. Tesseron�s goal appears to be a 50+ year wine.

Bright medium ruby. Perfumed, vibrant aromas of raspberry, currant, minerals, spices and cigar box. Sweet and densely packed; superripe yet fresh, with brisk acidity giving definition and lift to the lush but sappy flavors. Wonderfully seamless and fine. A big wine with noble building tannins and compelling lingering sweetness. This has the tannic spine and sheer concentration of material to age for three decades or more.

Quite dense, but pure and fresh, with the core of fig, damson plum and mulled cherry fruit already well-defined and the back end of rounded loam and roasted cedar grip fully integrated. The finish is long and powerful. Best from 2013 through 2020.
