Pontet Canet 1986
Tasting Notes Pontet Canet 1986
This wine still remains relatively young, with a dark plum/garnet color, an intriguing nose of black currants intermixed with compost, earth, and a hint of mushroom. The wine is dense, muscular, tannic, and very masculine. The tannins seemed slightly elevated for the concentration, but there is a lot going on here. This wine certainly saturates the palate, but will it ever come into complete harmony? Anticipated maturity: 2004-2015. Last tasted, 9/02.
