Tasting Notes Pontet Canet 1990

88

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's Pontet-Canet dinner at The Ledbury. The 1990 is an old school, pre-Jean-Michel Comme wine. This bottle of 1990 displays a touch of brettanomyces on the nose, but it is not off-putting and actually complements the scents of truffle, moss and cooked meats. Medium-bodied on the palate with good acidity for the vintage, but at 21-years of age beginning to lack a little vigour. This is a pleasurable Pontet-Canet, one that deserves drinking now without too many expectations. Tasted February 2011.

Diffuse, weedy, red and black currant notes along with hints of earth and licorice emerge from this mid-weight Pauillac. The 1990 was conceived before proprietor Alfred Tesseron began to pull out all the stops in his quest for first-growth quality starting in 1994. Over the last 5-6 vintages, he has been hitting on all cylinders. Release price: ($290.00/case)
