This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

MNSC Bordeaux Trip Day 2: Pontet-Canet

Visit and lunch at Pontet-Canet, where we were warmly received by Alfred Tesseron.

2008 Pontet-Canet - nose of ripe fruits and mint, with very smooth tannins to make an enjoyable wine.

2000 Dom Perignon en magnum - this was beautiful.

2003 Pontet-Canet – nose still a bit closed, very concentrated fruit with a bit of metallic and iron rust, turning a bit alcoholic later.

2000 Pontet-Canet – nose also concentrated but more accessible than the 2003. Ripe fruit with a bit of coffee, and smoke emerging later. Nice and long finish.

1995 Pontet-Canet – very apparent sous bois, very smooth and lovely on the palate.

Full post on lunch is here.
