2005 Grand Pontet, St-Emilion

SKU #1043976 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intense aromas of crushed berry, toasty oak, coconut and milk chocolate lead to a full-bodied palate, with soft, velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Stylish and voluptuous. Best after 2013. Inner quote mark (3/2008)


Outer quote mark Beautiful freshness of black fruit with some purity and style, elegant fruit concentration and well-integrated oak aromas. Very high and precise acidity with lots of ripe but fresh red and black fruit characters, spicy, and fine oak with some minerality, very elegant but has layers and shows complexity. Great potential and needs few more years beyond 2010 to develop and open up. Inner quote mark (3/2010)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Sweet vanilla-edged black cherry. Richly fragrant and inviting. Then fine savoury, mineral depth. Fine tense structure. Dense, aromatic mid palate and long fresh finish. Very young but very well defined. (JH) Inner quote mark (2/2008)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Grand Pontet’s 2005 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, plenty of cassis and black cherry fruit, some licorice and sweet ripe tannin. Drink this medium to full-bodied wine over the next 10-12 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

Lovely, sweet, forward wine. Ripe tannins - round and soft. So delicious.
