    June 16, 2019 - Pontet-Canet '14 - '16 vertical.

    Pontet-Canet consistently expresses vintage as well or better than other Chateaux. Want to understand how the ripeness of 2003 affected the Left Bank? Look no further! Curious about the marked rusticity of 2006? Here you go! Questioning the notably understated quality of 2008? This (along with Leoville-Barton) is the grail!

    The same holds true for 2015, which ranks among the most misunderstood Bordeaux vintages of my (wine) lifetime, a Burgundy aficionado's year. There are exceptions of course, notably Giscours and Rauzan-Segla, yet Pontet-Canet, along with Domaine de Chevalier, captured the elegance that this vintage offered.

    An ethereal elixir, deceptively powerful, featuring high acid and powdery tannins. It will age forever...and then some. Worth tasting now, and better in time. 97-98.

    May 30, 2019 - There was only this vintage at the Lord's 2018 en primeur tasting. One of the best wines of the evening. Big blackcurrant nose. Huge amount of fruit and the tannins are restrained at first, asserting themselves later. Superb. Needs a good steak. Tempting to try a bottle now but I'll wait 4 or 5 years.

    May 28, 2019 - Bordeaux 2018 - En Primeur in Australia (pyrmont wharf, sydney): <shrugs> smells roided. Monolithic. Ripe blackcurrant. Oak. Tight tannins. Juicy big black fruits. Long. Very long in fact. Obviously very good quality but not for quite a while.

    April 15, 2019 - Great wine. Amazing texture and balance. This wine is so smooth with two hours in the decanter. Delicious too. Buy now as this will go up in price.

    April 4, 2019 - A very good bottle of wine. Yes it is young but these Pontet Canet is very good young. Thick chewy tannin with earth and currant. People rave about 2015, this was good but got the doors smacked off of it compared to the 09 at around the same age after release. A good wine that may be great but nothing like the 09.
