K&L Notes

96 points Neal Martin for Vinous: "The 2016 Pontet-Canet was bottled in July 2018. Jean-Michel Comme says it is the best vintage in recent years, a reference point for the estate, with more definition and precision than the 2010 Pontet-Canet. I do like the bouquet here: very pure and precise, the oak nicely integrated, subtle floral scents emerging with time. In the background there is a touch of fresh fig, conveying the warmth of that summer but not impeding upon the terroir expression. The palate is very well balanced and extremely pure, with fine tannin and an almost satin-like texture; the acidity here is well judged. A subtle spiciness becomes more pronounced toward the finish, which exerts gentle grip. This is a very sophisticated Pontet-Canet, easily the finest from Alfred Tesseron and winemaker Jean-Michel Comme in recent years." (1/2019)

    Is this in the league of their famed 2009 and 2010? Without a doubt. But even if it is easy to use those as a comparison for the pedigree, stylistically it shows a bit more precision and purity than that pair. The nose is deep and dark with black cherry, graphite, plum, and tar. The palate, however, is fresh, focused, and lively, with blackberry, cassis, hints of baking chocolate, a fine texture and impressive length that just carries on and on. This is a blockbuster, but there's great poise and balance. This is one of my favorite Pontet-Canet releases in a long time and still represents one of the most over-delivering collectibles you're bound to find on today's market.
