Gorgeous raspberry licorice and currant with hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied with silky tannins and lots of currant and berry character. Refined. Long long finish. Best after 2010. 6 580 cases made. (JS) Wine Spectator.

One cannot say enough about the labors of proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who has personally overseen the dramatic increase in quality of the wines at Pontet-Canet which started in a significant manner with 1994. This is a classic Pauillac-styled wine (meaning oodles of cassis flavors), as one might expect from a vineyard on the plateau of Pauillac, across the street from Mouton-Rothschild. One of the great successes of the vintage and certainly one of the most profound Pontet-Canets made over the last decade is the 2003. Deep purple to the rim with a glorious nose of scorched earth, black currant jam, smoke, licorice, and roasted meats, it is full-bodied, incredibly powerful, dense, with low acidity but high tannin, broad-shouldered, and savory. This is a stunning, pure, classic Pontet-Canet that should be at its best between 2010 and 2035.

Bold and robust on the nose, with notes of mocha, mushroom, earthy minerality, and subtle spice notes. A black fruit note lingers in the background. The palate is mouth filling, with the signature Pauillac minerality and grippy tannins. Very up front... Devon Magee. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Pontet-Canet, Hauts de 750ml

The 1988 Ducru is a medium-bodied wine, without the profound depth and intensity of fruit of the 1980. Possessing high tannins and good ripeness, with an overall sense of compactness and toughness, it recalls the style of the best 1966 Médocs. Anticipated maturity: 1996-2008.
