Proprietor Alfred Tesseron should be commended for taking what was a good robust fifth-growth Pauillac and in three years 1994 1995 and 1996 producing a wine that is one of the finest of the vintage. If there is such a thing as the frugal person s Chateau Latour it may be Pontet-Canet. Despite the fact that this estate s vineyards are adjacent to Mouton-Rothschild the 1994 1995 and 1996 wines have had more in common with Latour than any other Pauillac. The 1996 looks to be another cla

This extraordinary wine may be the greatest Ducru-Beaucaillou I have ever tasted. For now, let's call it the finest wine made at this estate since 1982. Moreover, it is developing in such a manner that it may even eclipse that renowned vintage. The 1... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

In der Nase merkt man die Aromen von Cassis und Pflaume. Der Wein überzeugt im Gaumen durch die besonders feinen Gewürznoten.

A classic Pauillac the 1996 continues to flesh out revealing an opaque purple color and a magnificent creme de cassis nose reminiscent of the superb vintages of Mouton-Rothschild (Pontet-Canet s neighbor). The wine is full-bodied as well as extraordinarily rich ripe and powerful with layers of sweet black fruits intertwined with earth minerals and spicy oak. Massive on the palate with lofty tannin but equally high extract this is a profound Pontet-Canet that may turn out to be even m

I was shocked by how backward the 1996 Pontet-Canet was on the three occasions I tasted it in January. This wine possesses superb potential but it appears a decade s worth of patience will be necessary. The color is a saturated dark purple. With coaxing the wine offers aromas of black currant jam intertwined with minerals sweet oak and spice. A full-bodied wine it possesses layered concentrated sweet fruit with an elevated level of ripe tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2035. Rober
