CHÂTEAU PONTET-CANET 2005 (2) 96 WS 97 WA


CHÂTEAU PONTET-CANET 2005 PAUILLAC. 5IÈME CRU CLASSÉ THE PALATE IS MEDIUM-BODIED, BUT DENSE AND STRUCTURED—CERTAINLY A MORE MASCULINE PONTET-CANET BUILT FOR LONG-TERM AGEING. YET IT RETAINS MARVELOUS FRESHNESS AND VITALITY ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE PENCIL-LEAD, QUITE SALINE FINISH. I SUSPECT THAT THE 2009 PONTET-CANET IS MORE APPROACHABLE THAN THE 2005, SO HEEDING ROBERT PARKER'S SAGE ADVICE, AFFORD THIS UP TO TEN YEARS IN YOUR CELLAR AND THEN REAP THE REWARDS OF PATIENCE. TASTED FEBRUARY 2016. DRINK DATE 2025-2050 96 WS 97 WA 2 BTS. PER LOT $300 - $500




Price Realised: $720
