K&L Notes

92 points, Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This has a very well defined, very fresh bouquet with blackberry, black plum, cedar, graphite and a touch of undergrowth. There is a certain “honesty” to this nose. The palate is medium-bodied with good grip, a little dry on the entry, quite foursquare but so well balanced and displaying such clarity on the finish, with hints of cedar and truffle lingering on the aftertaste. Superb." (03/2011)

    For those of you wishing for the days when Pontet-Canet was selling for less than $100, this is your wine. I decanted it for two hours, and the wine was still tight but starting to express itself. By the end of the tasting the wine was showing fantastically. The nose is beautiful, with licorice, cassis, mineral and some lingering oak spice. The ripe cassis and blackberry dominate the palate along with graphite and resin. This ripe black fruit and spice continue through onto the long finish. The fleshy mouthfeel is fairly integrated with some tannins evident on the finish.
