Chateau Pontet Canet 2002

90 points

Pauillac, Bordeaux, France. 13%

A dark and full wine, deep. It has a richness that makes it approachable now but this wine really needs some years to reveal its charm. It isn’t so fresh and light on its feet as some cabernet oriented 2002 clarets. It has brooding depth.

Here is a Château profile on the excellent WineDoctor site, with tasting notes for a number of vintages.
