    2018 Pontet Canet is composed of 70% CS 22% Merlot 5% CF and 3% PV. The big buzz in this vintage is the low yields from the organic vineyards here at Pontet and at Ch. Palmer; and that both estates made wonderful wines with great sweetness of fruit that is not in the style of most 2018's. Pontet lost 2/3 of the crop to mildew. 2018 has huge sweet,dark purple fruit with flavors of blueberry and blackberry. Silky and delicious, almost liquor-ish. Reminds me of the fantastic 2009. 2 Stars Ralph Sands

    Their steadfast dedication to Biodynamic practices left Pontet-Canet's with a 2018 that was down over 70%, an incredible number for a property this size. The wine they did craft was very exotic and will thrill many wine drinkers from the new and old world alike. Juicy blue and black fruit frame a palate that has good acidity and a long finish tinged with vanilla and spice. It feels modern, but the alcohol is nearly a point lower than some of their neighbors to the north (if that's your measure). It is hedonistic, and undeniably delicious in 2018.
