($60-$70) Ruby-red. Roasted blackberry, coffee and mocha on the nose, along with a grapey quality. Fat, superripe and sweet; wonderfully full, sexy and broad. Just this side of exotic, but sound natural acidity gives shape to the thick, mellow dark berry and chocolate flavors. Finishes with substantial tannins and resounding length. This will be drinkable several years earlier than the 2005.

Very deep crimson. Foxgloves and sweetness and wildness – overripeness. Very firm chewy tannins. Bilberries. Hot end. (Average group score: 16.6)

One cannot say enough about the labors of proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who has personally overseen the dramatic increase in quality of the wines at Pontet-Canet which started in a significant manner with 1994. This is a classic Pauillac-styled wine (meaning oodles of cassis flavors), as one might expect from a vineyard on the plateau of Pauillac, across the street from Mouton-Rothschild. One of the great successes of the vintage and certainly one of the most profound Pontet-Canets made over the last decade is the 2003. Deep purple to the rim with a glorious nose of scorched earth, black currant jam, smoke, licorice, and roasted meats, it is full-bodied, incredibly powerful, dense, with low acidity but high tannin, broad-shouldered, and savory. This is a stunning, pure, classic Pontet-Canet that should be at its best between 2010 and 2035.

This excellent pontet canet is entering to prime drinking. Medium to full body on palate. Great aromas of red fruits as cherry currant and then a sniff of a classic pauillac. This is wine with extraordinary balance, great depth an unremarkable finesse. Getting airing for more than 30 min and will gain complexities, new aromas and more depth even feels heavier....this wine stills years ahead of great drinking. Opens now for freshness and glamour of this all around Pauillac.

Black tea wrapped around a core of deep currant fruit, with a hint of plum on the mid-palate. It would appear as though an extra portion of merlot went into the final blend. Beginning to show that trademark Pauillac "cigar-box" essence on the finish, which was quite long. A well-balanced, deep wine with plenty of stature - one that should age for at least 20 years. Drink now through 2030.

Fresh, fragrant, wonderful. Modern... atypical for the 2003 vintage but excellent and quite well-grounded in P-C. Full bodied, room to grow. I rate it behind the 1996 and the 2005, but that is no shame!

My favorite of the young PCs, this wine paid some homage to the older style with its softer tannins and calm structure. The big black currant and coffee were still there, but should mellow with time and integrate well with the tannin and acid.

Full bodied deep purple in color. A powerful dense wine with strong tannins and low acidity. The bouquet mixes earthiness with black currant, licorice and meats. On the palate it opens up and is a dense powerful wine with a lingering finish. Will probably even better in 5-10 years

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
