Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, with firm, grainy tannins and a lively line lifting the fruit to a long minerally finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The deep purple-colored 2016 Château Grand-Pontet is a blend of 70% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers a pretty, lifted bouquet of black cherries, plums, violets, damp earth, and bay leaf. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, nicely concentrated wine that has beautiful purity of fruit, rock solid mid-palate depth, moderate tannins, and a great finish. Drink this ripe, powerful 2016 over the coming 15+ years.

Espresso, chocolate, licorice, leather, new oak and smoke are generous in this deep, layered Saint-Émilion. Powerful, creamy and quite giving, the 2016 has a lot to offer. This is a decidedly extracted style, and yet all of the elements are very nicely balanced throughout. -- Antonio Galloni

The palate is ripe on the entry and feels less weighty than the aromatics augur, but it is well balanced with fine acidity, tightening up toward quite a tannic finish. This is like two different wines in one bottle. It will be intriguing to see how this Saint-Émilion matures. -- Neal Martin
