1996 Grand Pontet, St-Emilion

SKU #1053702

According to Robert Parker: "This up and coming St.-Emilion is somewhat under-rated given the consistently high quality of recent vintages. The 1996 is a flamboyant, dark ruby/purple-colored wine with a soaring bouquet of plum liqueur, toasty new oak, black cherries, smoke, and dried herbs. In the mouth, evidence of sur-maturite jamminess and richness emerge from this medium-bodied, rich, spicy, impressively-endowed wine. There is tannin in the medium to full-bodied finish. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2014." (04/99) According to the Wine Spectator: "Can't complain about this St.-Emilion. Very dark color, with mineral, berry and spice aromas. Medium-bodied, with a good core of berry and toasted oak character on the palate. Slightly dry on the finish, but still impressive. Best after 2000." (01/99)
