Released this morning £545 and one of the most interesting talking points of the vintage. The wine is by all accounts (including the C&B buying team) very good. The score Mr Parker gives it is 96-98+ which is very good for a 5th growth (it “outscores” Mouton). If you look at it from another angle it is the most expensive Pontet ever and the price (in Euro) is the same as for 2007.
Value?? I believe it is and given that the 2005 is in the region of £800 I don’t think the price is a) unfair or b) as high as I thought it might be.
