Chateau Pontet-Fumet 2004

86+ points

Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France. 13.5%

A certain degree of richness on the nose, but the palate is very fresh with considerable acidity.  Quite elegant, this may turn into something quite fine, however it doesn’t exactly grab me at present.  The fruit doesn’t sing, the acid covers things up too much.  Still it was cheap.
