The fruit is very pure with a great depth of flavor. This wine has weight and intense flavors of dark plum and sweet fruit. Impressive. - R.V.

A wine with lots of ripe berries, verging on dried fruits. Full and chewy with ripe, round, chewy tannins. It needs lots of bottle age. A wine of steel. From biodynamically grown grapes, as always.

From biodynamically grown grapes, as always. Better than from barrel. Try in 2018.

A big broad-shouldered style with lots of bittersweet cocoa and coffee up front followed by thick-textured blackberry and black currant fruit. Shows a bit more brute force than purity right now though hard to deny the concentration and depth. Could move up if it stretches out and gains some finesse.-J.M.

Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London, the 2011 Château Pontet Canet must constitute one of the best wines on the Left Bank, even if it does not quite live up to its stellar performance from barrel. Lucid purple in color, the bouquet leaps from the glass and yells "Pauillac" - thanks to its graphite seam interwoven through the black fruit. Over ten minutes, tobacco scents join the fray and it develops what you might call "mint fresh" aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied and remains understated on the entry, perhaps exaggerated by the exuberance of the nose. However, there is no question that this is a refined, pure and seamless Pontet-Canet with crème de cassis and cedar inter-layered on the sustained finish. Bon vin. Tasted February 2016. - Neal Martin

Aged in 50% new French oak. Deep ruby core with a bright ruby rim. The nose offers notes of blackberry red cherry cassis licorice and cedar. Very refined on the palate with super fine-grained tannins and a bright vibrant acidity. This beauty is totally complete; a polished and persistent with loads of character. Another hugely successful wine from Pontet Canet. Michel Rolland consults. Enjoy 2016-2030.
