|Pontet Canet||1989||Bordeaux (Red)||6 x 75cl||£450||1||88 WA|
A somewhat disjointed wine with impressive component parts but still somewhat ruggedly thrown together, with the tannins dry and all too noticeable. Nevertheless, the color remains a healthy ruby/garnet, and the smoky nose of melted licorice intermixed with creme de cassis, earth, and dried herbs is alluring. In the mouth it is medium-bodied, moderately tannic, but somewhat dry in the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2015. Last tasted, 9/02.
