1996 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

SKU #110486 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep ruby-red. Blackcurrant, plum, tobacco and black olive nose is more complex and serious than that of either of the foregoing vintages. Thick, grapey and concentrated; still quite primary. This shows the fat and depth of the '96 vintage in the northern Medoc. Finishes long, with substantial tannins. Impressive. (ST)  (5/1999)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Aromas of black licorice, currant and toasted oak. Full-bodied, with silky, refined tannins and a medium finish. Holding back still. (JS, Web Only-2007)
