THOUGHTS ON 2007 PONTET CANET AND OTHER BORDEAUX WINES FROM THE STAFF AT THE WINE HOUSE

94+ Points

"Tasted at Berry Bros. vertical in London. Bottled in July, it is unfair to compare the 2007 to the 2008, although the difference in ripeness is clear. A slightly more herbaceous, earthier bouquet, sharp blackberry, a touch of soy, an attractive floral element...violets. As it did in barrel, this Pontet-Canet nods towards Margaux. Good definition though. The palate is well balanced, slightly grainy tannins on the entry, very good acidity and backbone. This is confirming the promise that it showed in barrel and the finish is developing a lovely blackcurrant and mulberry finish. Exceptional for the vintage. Drink 2011-2025."

Deep ruby-red. The nose shows an almost exotic ripeness but also a high-pitched quality to the aromas of fruitcake, graphite and spicy oak. Dense and intensely flavored but at the same time quite juicy and penetrating, with terrific lift to its dark fruit flavors. An outperformer for the vintage, this rather powerfully structured wine has a serious spine for aging.
