2001 Grand-Pontet, St-Emilion

SKU #1054829 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A renaissance is taking place at this estate, managed by the sister of Gerard and Dominique Becot, the proprietors of Beau-Sejour-Becot. The 2001 is dense, exuberant, fleshy, and flamboyant, exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color along with rich layers of blackberry and cherry fruit, plenty of toasty new oak, and an uncomplicated, in-your-face style that will receive a lot of attention. Cynics may think it is too internationally styled, but there is a lot going on. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full medium ruby. Black cherry, cassis, blackberry, violet and a slight inky quality on the nose. Lush and nicely concentrated, with moderate density and bright acidity. Violet and mint flavors show a restrained sweetness. Attractive fruit here. Finishes with slightly dusty but even tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2002)

This Château has become a constant standout among our customers, and the 2001 should be as well. On the nose, the oak is still prominent, but is complemented by heady blackberry fruit in the background. On the palate, the blackberry fruit, coffee and oak spice come through, and the mouthfeel is lush, with slight astringency. The heady dark fruit comes through on the long finish with more oak spice.
