    October 12, 2019 - Pours a transparent ruby with an open bouquet. This house is showing a different style than virtually any other 2015 Left bank I’ve tried. Closest to Dom de Chevalier, but it’s even a touch more elegant. Christmas spice and tart cranberry but still showing red currant and cherry Cabernet character. Finish is clipped a little by the firm acidity. I’m glad to hold a couple for the sake of diversity as it is not at all what I was expecting.

    Burgundy lovers will be absolutely floored when they try this wine in 15 years.

    August 31, 2019 - Superb, as good as it gets. It goes fast, sip by sip. Elegant, round, long, full of fruit. If you want to try it before it closes it is the time. Delicious!

    August 14, 2019 - Decant for at least 4 hours and be rewarded with early access to delicious and elegant black currants, tobacco, fine tannins, and a lifted, lengthy finish. Power, fruit, structure, and velvety mouth-feel all come together after 6 hours, though your early access pass doesn't get you the complexity that'll be coming in the years ahead. If you have several bottles, it's no crime to pop one open now and check it out.

    July 7, 2019 - Upon opening one is greeted with a very fresh nose that gushes from the glass. Black and red fruits interplay with hints of chocolate and violets. After eight hours of breathing in the decanter a touch of raspberry is also present.

    Red and black berries slide across the palate with acidity holding everything in check. Medium to full bodied the flavors hold together in a dance with tannins that allows the wine to carry through to a long finish.

    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.
