Food Pairings for Chateau les Hauts de Pontet-Canet Pauillac
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.
Robert Parker 94 Points This classic, backward, tannic St.-Julien is made in the style of the 1996 and 1986. The 2006 Ducru Beaucaillou possesses a dense purple color along with a sweet perfume of graphite, black raspberries, cassis, licorice, and subtle toasty oak. Despite their prominent place in the wine’s structure, the sweetness of the tannins and the full-bodied, muscular style suggest exceptional patience will be required. This is a big, substantial, meaty, masculine wine built for considerable longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035. Wine Spectator 95 Points Very perfumed and beautiful, showing blackberry and raspberry aromas, with hints of vanilla. Deep and complex. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, powerful finish. Excellent for the vintage. Best after 2015.–JS International Wine Cellar 93 Points Bright red-ruby. Deep, vibrant aromas of currant, sour cherry, graphite, cedar and licorice. Sappy, suave and energetic, with terrific verve and framing acidity to the tightly wound flavors of dark cherry, currant, spices and minerals. Wonderfully primary and penetrating Saint-Julien, almost painfully intense yet weightless. Finishes very long and fine, with terrific definition. An infant today, with a long life ahead of it.

Robert Parker: One can't say enough about the extraordinary quality proprietor Alfred Tesseron has achieved at Pontet-Canet over the last decade.Boasting a dense purple/black color in addition to aromas of creme de cassis, incense, burning
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.
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.
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.
Blackberry, currant and plum tart aromas lead to a full body, with a solid core of fruit, sweet fruit and silky tannins. Generous and round, with lovely richness for the vintage. Best after 2014. 23,330 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Pontet-Canet 3000ml
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.
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.
