    The 2008 Chateau Pontet-Canet expresses a fine and complex nose. After some time in the glass, a real outburst of fruit of a good purity can be detected. On the palate, the tannic structure is broad, fine and remarkably precise. This wine is a great Pauillac that proves itself to be worthy of its reputation. Moreover, it has a very good ageing potential. This 2008 Pontet-Canet is undeniably a fine wine. It is a wine with character worth the wait since it will favourably evolve in this charming vintage.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    A candidate for the "wine of the vintage," Pontet Canet's 2008 boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious aromas of sweet blueberries, blackberries and black currant fruit intertwined with lead pencil shavings, subtle barbecue smoke and a hint of forest floor. Full-bodied, with fabulous richness, texture and tremendous freshness, this first-growth-like effort is more developed than the uber-powerful 2010. Give it 5-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. Bravo!
