K&L Notes

94 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Pontet-Canet has an intense, crushed violet-scented bouquet that as I remarked upon out of barrel, imparts a Margaux-like personality. It is quite high-toned and exuberant at this early juncture and will clearly require several years to calm down. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent black fruit on the entry, quite spicy with notes of black pepper and sage, perhaps just a little fiery in personality. However, counterbalancing this is a sense of harmony and focus. It is just a bit boisterous at this early stage, then the finish is tightly wound albeit well defined, leaving that spiciness as its calling card on the aftertaste. Anticipated maturity: 2022 - 2045." (02/2018)

    As usual one of the top wines of the vintage. 65%CS with 30%M and rest PV and CF. Not a monster like 2010 nor as voluptuous as their 2009, but it is 1/3 the price!! Alfred Tesseron says this is his best year for the quality of the fruit at picking time. BIO wine-dark, spicy, lovely sweetness and peppery spice nuances. A must buy again.
    Drink from 2025 to 2055

    **Don’t Miss** Inky color. Deep, pure, and large scaled with black and blue fruits, exotic spice, and a firm but unctuous mid-palate with smoky oak. Moderate plus body with a long and intense finish. One for the cellar and will reward the patient.
