2015 Château Pontet-Canet Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

A fabulous wine that has really developed well since it was first placed in barrel. Rich, dense and intense, the wine is deeply colored powerful and refined. The wine will hit the middle and probably the top of my initial score range with ease.

2015 Château Coutet Barsac Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Concentrated, rich and deep, there is more than ample, perfectly ripe and over ripe, sweet, juicy, pineapples, apricot, vanilla, almond and honeysuckle all coated with flowery honey. But like all great sweet wines, it is the vibrant acidity that makes the wine interesting and keeps it fresh. 94-96 Pts

    Recently very much enjoyed drinking a case of the 2007, can recommend if you can find.

    1/6/17, 9:19 AM - Thanks for the link - will enjoy reading this, I have a case of the 2015 and based on the vintage reports ive read for 2016 i expect the quality to be similar and will be adding a case of 2016 in April / May, used to be a staunch "red bordeaux" sort, but on my second visit to the City of Bordeaux I was utterly converted on Barsac and Sauternes.
