Robert Parker 97+ Points: “Possibly the youngest wine of all the 2005 Médocs in terms of its evolution, at age 10 the inky purple 2005 Pontet-Canet tastes more like a two-year-old wine. Loads of pure blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit are present along with a hint of licorice and background oak. It is full-bodied, ripe, and excruciatingly fresh, vigorous and exuberant. This is a tour de force, and a sensational effort that rivals the first growths. Give it another 5-10 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 30-40 years. ”

Neal Martin 97 Points:“Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London, the 2005 Château Pontet-Canet has long been one of the stars of the vintage and this might well be the best of over a dozen showings of this wine. However, do not expect ostentation on the nose. This is 2005 and like many wines of this vintage, even with considerable decanting, it remained broody and introspective on the nose, as if it is checking you out and seeing if you are worthy. Once you have been accepted, then it swings the doors open to reveal gorgeous scents of blackberry, briary and cassis fruit, perhaps a little more sous-bois than I have noticed compared to previous bottles. The palate is medium-bodied, but dense and structured—certainly a more masculine Pontet-Canet built for long-term ageing. Yet it retains marvelous freshness and vitality all the way through to the pencil-lead, quite saline finish. I suspect that the 2009 Pontet-Canet is more approachable than the 2005, so heeding Robert Parker's sage advice, afford this up to ten years in your cellar and then reap the rewards of patience. Tasted February 2016.”

Jeb Dunnuck 97+ Points: “The 2005 Pontet Canet is a bruiser that’s still not anywhere near primetime. Blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, and saddle leather all emerge from this concentrated, powerful, structured 2005 that has an incredible amount of fruit, yet no shortage of ripe tannin, extract, and length. It needs another 4-5 years (or more) to hit maturity, but it’s an incredible wine that’s going to reward patience.”

Rene Gabriel 19 Points:“Dunkles Violett-Schwarz. Geniales Bouquet, schwarze Johannisbeeren, Korinthen, Teer extrem tiefgründig, beeindruckend mit seinem Cabernet-Essenzparfüm. Grosser Gaumenauftritt, dicht, fleischig, eng, wiederum alles im schwarzbeerigen Bereich, Cassis, schwarze Johannisbeeren, dramatische Länge. Nicht nur der Beste, je produzierte Pontet-Canet, sondern zu den besten Pauillacs gehörend. Auch wenn dies der teuerste Wein des aufstrebenden Weingutes sein wird, so lohnt es sich doch, diese enorme Qualitätsleistung zu honorieren. 07: Die Genialität voll in die Flasche gebracht. Machte einen absolut gewaltigen Eindruck, viel Vlumen, Cassis, Black Currant, getrocknete Pflaumen, dunkle Schokoade, fette Tannine. Gehört zu den grössten 2005ern - ein Buy-Must. 11: Ein Glas von einer Flasche die am Mittag geöffnet worden war. Ich degustierte den Wein kurz vor Mitternacht an einem Gala-Diner in der Source de Caudalie. Es hat mich fast umgehauen. Trotz dem Power ist so viel Finesse da, wie ich es noch nie bei einem Pontet-Canet erlebte. Und einen so grossen Pontet-Canet hatte ich noch gar nie im Glas. beginnen (2020 - 2024) ”
