A classic and classy young wine. 74% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 1% petit verdot. Drink after 2025.
 
93 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Château Batailley 2019 Pauillac Grand Cru ClasseAntonio Galloni (Vinous) bewertet den Château Batailley 2019 Pauillac Grand Cru Classe:
The 2019 Batailley has come together beautifully with élevage. There is plenty of power and intensity, but also a greater degree of finesse than in the past. Black cherry, licorice, leather, smoke and spice lend a good deal of gravitas. I would give the 2019 a few years to come together.
 
95 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Château Batailley 2019 Pauillac Grand Cru ClasseUnd Neal Martin (Vinous) zum Château Batailley 2019 Pauillac Grand Cru Classe:
The 2019 Batailley has an intense bouquet of blackberry, graphite and light tobacco scents, the latter less pronounced than out of barrel. This feels supremely well-defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins and pure black fruit laced with cracked black pepper and graphite, leading to a complex and quite prolonged finish. One of the best Batailleys, maybe the best, in recent years, and a strong follow-up to their splendid 2018. Highly recommended and still one of the best values in Pauillac.

Delivers a nice gush of warmed plum and blackberry preserve flavors, enlivened with hints of anise, apple wood and dark tobacco. Features a hint of sweet bay leaf through the finish, which has a lush feel despite a buried cast iron note. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2038. 25,000 cases made.

Pedesclaux was purchased in late 2009 by real estate mogul. Jacky Lorenzetti. In addition to the purchase of Pedesclaux and its 26 hectares of vineyards. Lorenzetti was also able to acquire an additional 12 hectares of vineyards planted at 10.000 vines per hectare that sit atop the Milon plateau (their rows are interspersed with those of Mouton and Lafite). The total vineyard acreage in 2018 was 49.7 hectares with an average vine age of 35 years. The soils are typically gravelly atop a clay subsoil. It will spend an estimated 16 months on the lees in barrels. 60% new and 40% second year. The blend is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon. 27% Merlot. 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. and it has 13.96% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple colored. the 2018 Pedesclaux comes charging out of the gate with rambunctious baked plums. warm cassis and Morello cherries scents plus hints of spice cake. menthol and fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied. the palate delivers mouth-coating black fruits and spicy accents. with a soft. fine-grained frame. finishing long.

The 2018 Pedesclaux is a fruity. supple Pauillac. that will drink well upon release. Although not especially complex. the 2018 offers lovely immediacy and plenty of near to medium-term appeal. Succulent dark cherry. plum. chocolate and spice are nicely pushed forward in this decidedly overt Pauillac. The 2018 is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon. 27% Merlot. 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot.

100 Punkte Vinous für den Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 PauillacAntonio Galloni Januar 2019:

A towering. thrilling wine. the 2016 Mouton Rothschild is unbelievably beautiful today. Aromatics. fruit density and vertical structure all come together. In the glass. the 2016 is remarkably vivid and powerful. and yet a gentler. more feminine side emerges with time in the glass. The intense. mineral. savory profile recalls the 1986. but the 2016 has more grace. inner sweetness and sophistication than that wine. Even so. the 2016 is going to need at least a number of years in bottle before it starts drinking well. although it won't be the bruiser the 1986 remains to this day. This is breathtaking wine from Mouton. Tecnical Director Philippe Dhalluin and his team.

100 Parker Punkte für Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 PauillacLisa Perrotti Brown am 30.11.2018

The 2016 Mouton Rothschild is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon. 15% Merlot. 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. with the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot vinified together. It has a very deep purple-black color and slowly slides out of the glass with spicy notes of Sichuan pepper. cloves and cinnamon stick giving way to a core of perfumed black fruits and florals—blackcurrant cordial. candied violets. blackberry compote. rose hips and black plums—plus suggestions of espresso. damp soil. tar and beef drippings. Medium-bodied. the palate is very firmly structured and jam-packed with latent energy about to burst. offering superbly ripe. grainy tannins and bold freshness to support the intense floral and black fruit layers and finishing very long and very minerally. Powerful. profound wine.

Mouton’s congenial managing director. Philippe Dhalluin. was unfortunately in Napa while I was in Bordeaux in October. so I was hosted by Eric Tourbier—Mouton’s technical director—and Clerc-Milon’s winemaker. Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy. While discussing the particularly abundant range of aroma/flavor compounds I was perceiving in the 2016 reds. Danjoy commented. “When you have a wet spring. you tend to have more aromatic precursors. Also. it was a long maturation period. The vine made a lot of aromatic components. The gap between the Merlot and the Cabernet Sauvignon for ripening was very long. In fact. Cabernet was very late this year. We didn’t know if the Cabernet Sauvignon was going to make it! The big surprise for us was the Cabernet Franc—all of it was delicious. We used it all in the grand vin at Clerc Milon.” When we came to taste Le Petit Mouton and Mouton Rothschild. Eric Tourbier. smiling like the cat that got the cream. said simply. “It was a dry summer. We had very small berries and a good level of ripeness.” He then added. matter-of-factly. “I’ve been at Mouton for 30 years. I think this is my best vintage. The 2016 may be compared to the 1986?” Maybe. but while I’m a huge lover of the incredibly provocative and sometimes formidable 1986 (I had it again just a few weeks ago). I’m thinking this 2016 is going to give a lot more hedonic pleasure in its first 25 years in bottle than the 1986—just coming around now—certainly did.

100 Punkte Vinous | Neal Martin für den Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 PauillacNeal Martin im Januar 2019:

The 2016 Mouton Rothschild bowled me over when I tasted it from barrel. Philippe Dhalluin compares it to the 1986 in terms of intensity of fruit. although there is more maturity and refinement in the tannins apropos of the 2016. Bottled in July 2018. this has an intense bouquet with pixelated black fruit. crushed stone. hints of blue fruit and a touch of India ink. But it is the delineation and focus that take your breath away. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannin framing the pure black currant and cassis fruit. The acidity is pitch-perfect. and there is a gentle but insistent grip toward the extraordinarily long finish. Racking my brains to think of another Mouton Rothschild that I have tasted over the last 20 years that was as good as this. I simply cannot come up with one.

100 Punkte James Suckling für den Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 PauillacJames Suckling im Februar 2019:

Dark ruby. purple color. Aromas of blackcurrants. black truffle. crushed stone. licorice and hints of tar. Full-bodied. deep and vertical on the palate. drawing you in and down. The structure is very tannic and powerful. yet the tannins are folded into the wine. One of the most powerful Moutons ever for me. Try after 2027.

James Suckling am 04.04.2017

This is a phenomenal. muscular red that shows incredible power and depth. Full-bodied and with great concentration of tannins but this remains agile and polished. The form to this is stupendous. Such precision and clarity. The new 1986 but better.

A gorgeous wine, the 2019 Château Pédesclaux shines for its pure, elegant, yet concentrated style, and it's certainly one of the finest vintages from this address. Cassis, black cherries, lead pencil, and violet notes all emerge on the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, elegant mouthfeel, ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish. The purity and finesse are truly something here, and while it already offers pleasure, it deserves 4-5 years of bottle age and will evolve for 20+ years.

 
93 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Pedesclaux 2019 PauillacAntonio Galloni (Vinous) bewertet den Chateau Pedesclaux 2019 Pauillac:

The 2019 Pédesclaux is quirky and full of character. It offers a beguiling mix of super-ripe dark fruit and savory Cabernet coupled with accents that offer a striking counterpoint. Black cherry, chocolate, new leather, spice, tobacco, incense and scorched earth lead into the substantial finish. There's more raciness than finesse in this Pauillac, but it all works well.

 
93 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Pedesclaux 2019 PauillacUnd Neal Martin (Vinous) zum Chateau Pedesclaux 2019 Pauillac:

The 2019 Pédesclaux, which is matured in 60% new oak, has a lively, classically styled bouquet of blackberry, briary, cedar and pressed violet scents, a touch of orange pith emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe black fruit, very polished and seductive. The expressive floral component lends the Margaux-like personality I remarked upon from barrel. Quite persistent in the mouth, yet accessible, this will be difficult to resist (but try). [One sample had a more briny finish than others.

The 2016 d’Armailhac. which was bottled in May 2018. has an elegant bouquet that unfolds in the glass. offering blackberries. briar and a touch of cedar and mint. The palate is medium-bodied with dense tannin. grippy in the mouth. and quite voluminous. with perhaps more density on the solid. almost broad-shouldered finish compared to the Clerc-Milon. This fulfills all my expectations from my barrel tasting and is quite simply one of the best d’Armailhac wines ever made.

92 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau d Armailhac 2016Antonio Galloni im Januar 2019:
The 2016 d'Armailhac is powerful and dense. just as it was from barrel. Readers will have to give the 2016 at least a few years in bottle. as the tannins are imposing. Dark red plum. licorice. spice. iron. game and scorched earth all give d'Armailhac its distinctive savory flavor profile that is quite appealing. Time in the glass brings out additional layers of nuance that complete the wine nicely.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 D’Armailhac (a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot) hits the ground running with wonderfully open-knit, flamboyant scents of Morello cherries, black raspberries, blackcurrant jelly and rose oil, leading to an undercurrent of cinnamon toast, aniseed and mossy tree bark. The medium to full-bodied palate is charged with energy and expressiveness, delivering red and black berry layers with loads of spicy sparks, framed by plush tannins, finishing long and fragrant.

92 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für denAntonio Galloni bewertet den Chateau d Armailhac 2018 Paulliac wie folgt:
The 2018 d'Armailhac is bright, fresh and so inviting, just as it was en primeur. Sweet red cherry fruit, cedar, spice, tobacco and anise add lovely aromatic complexity. All of the intensity of the year comes through nicely and yet the personality of Armailhac is evident also. I would cellar the 2018 for at least a few years, to allow some of the baby fat to melt away. There is a bit more breadth and richness that is the result of yields that were just 32 hectoliters per hectare as opposed to the more typical 42 or so. It was a vintage marked by heat stress, small berries and lower juice to skin ratio, as well as some parcels affected by mildew.

(als Fassmuster noch 88-90 massiv aufgewertet)


Just as it was from barrel, the 2018 Duhart-Milon is a real powerhouse. Black cherry, gravel, spice, espresso and savory herbs infuse the 2018 with notable depth and power. A brooding, virile wine, the Duhart-Milon packs a serious punch. I would give it a few years to soften. The 2018 has really come together since en primeur. In fact, the bottled wine bears little semblance to the en primeur sample, which is a very good thing. There is real density and weight here, with all of the natural richness of the year.

Over a few minutes. it blossoms in the glass. gaining more and more depth. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly tarry black fruit. cedar and truffle. dovetailing into a saline. peppery finish that leaves the tongue tingling. Christian Seely and his team have imbued recent vintages of this Pauillac with unerring symmetry. and the 2016 can be added to the canon of triumphs.

Den verkostet Christian Balog von CB Weinhandel in Essen für Sie wie folgt: Christian Balog beschreibt den Wein wie folgt:

Erntezeitpunkt: zwischen 24. September und 5. October Dramatische Ernteeinbuße. nur ein Drittel der normalen Menge konnte produziert werden. Sehr kompakter und dichter Kern. Die Nase ist unglaublich süsslich viele dunkle Früchte. eine derart fruchtige und komplexe Nase habe ich auf diesem Weingut noch nicht gerochen. Ganz klar ein Wein wie aus einer anderen Welt. Im Mund unglaublich vibrierend, satt, druckvoll, frisch, verspielt, komplex und unendlich lang. Einfach eine neue Dimension. Leider erwartet uns nur ein drittel der üblichen Produktion. wie viele Flaschen davon für den Primeur Verkauf freigegeben werden, dass ist die grosse Frage und zu welchem Preis, fest steht, der Wein ist einmalig und darf in keiner Pontet Canet Vertikale fehlen.

 
98 Sucklingpunkte für denJames Suckling bewertet den Chateau Pontet Canet 2018 Pauillac wie folgt:

A complex nose of blueberries, elderberries, dried fruit, spice and dark chocolate. It’s full-bodied with a harmonious, balanced texture. The tannins are still firm and powerful, but there’s balance and finesse to the whole thing. Tight and reserved, yet long and energetic. The tannins open slowly. Dusty texture. From biodynamically grown grapes. Try after 2024.

 
98 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für denLisa Perrotti Brown bewertet den Chateau Pontet Canet 2018 Pauillac wie folgt:

The 2018 Pontet-Canet is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. It was aged in 55% oak barriques and 45% amphorae. Deep garnet-purple colored, it explodes from the glass with an atomic perfume of raspberry pie, blackcurrant pastilles, rose oil and Chinese five spice, giving way to suggestions of cinnamon stick, dusty soil, pencil lead and underbrush. The rich, seductive, full-bodied palate is a hedonist's dream, delivering layer-upon-layer of black and red berry preserves with loads of fragrant accents, a beautifully firm yet plush texture and tons of freshness, finishing long with a whole firework display of exotic spices. This is pretty much out-of-the-gate delicious, but it has the backbone to evolve over three decades or more.

 
98 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Pontet Canet 2018 PauillacAntonio Galloni bewertet den Chateau Pontet Canet 2018 Pauillac wie folgt:

When I tasted the 2018 Pontet-Canet in barrel I described it as a "freak of nature." The 2018 is more than that, it is a freak of nature. Made from yields of just ten hectoliters per hectare, the 2018 possesses off the charts richness, phenomenal balance and head-spinning intensity. Crushed red berries, flowers, mint, cedar and rose petal saturate the palate in a Pauillac of breath-taking richness. The silkiest of tannins frame the phenomenally pure, long finish. This is a towering achievement from the Tesseron family and former Technical Director Jean-Michel Comme, who together spearheaded biodynamic farming in Bordeaux and built the present-day estate around a philosophy of non-interventionalist winemaking. In 2018, grapes were crushed solely by hand. Because of the tiny yields, the entire production was vinified in Pontet-Canet's new smaller concrete vats. All winemaking was done manually, without the aid of external temperature control or electricity. Put in another way, if Lalou Bize-Leroy made Bordeaux, it would taste like this.

 
99 Punkte vom Falstaff fürPeter Moser im Januar 2022:

Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Einladendes Bukett mit einem Hauch reife Feigen und Erdbeerkonfit, dunkle Beerenfrucht unterlegt, ein Hauch von Lakritze, rauchige Gewürznuancen im Hintergrund. Komplex und stoffig, sehr kraftvoll und zugleich mineralisch, präsente, reife Tannine, feiner Nougat, der Gerbstoff verleiht dem Wein eine unglaubliche Länge, macht ihn im Moment zugleich weniger zugänglich, gute Frische unterlegt, große Länge, ein Wein mit sicherer Zukunft, der allerdings auch noch viel Zeit benötigt. (2030 - 2070)

 
97+ Punkte von Jeb Dunnuck für den Jeb Dunnuck im November 2021:

An unevolved, almost primordial 2018, the 2018 Château Pontet Canet sports a dense purple hue as well as loads of blue and black fruits, damp earth, tobacco, candied violets, and graphite-laced aromas and flavors. With full-bodied richness, serious mid-palate depth, and building tannins, it's mostly potential at this point, but it's a beautiful wine in the making. A decade of bottle age is going to be required, though, so it's not for those seeking instant gratification.

 BIO 
 
Chateau Pontet Canet 2016 mit 98 Parker Punkten bewertetLisa Perrotti Brown 30. November 2018

The blend of the 2016 Pontet-Canet is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon. 30% Merlot. 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Around 55% of the wine was aged in new French oak barrels. 15% in two-year-old barrels and 35% in cement amphorae for 16 months. Deep garnet-purple colored. it opens with opulent scents of plum preserves. spice cake. hoisin and crème de cassis with fragrant wafts of potpourri. wood smoke and rose hip tea. Medium to full-bodied. rich and decadent. with loads of spicy layers. it has a firm. velvety texture with great freshness and incredible depth. finishing very long and on a compelling mineral note.

2016 marks the 40th vintage at Pontet-Canet for Alfred Tesseron. Winemaker Jean-Michel Comme mentioned it was wet at the beginning of the year. but thankfully the weather changed in late June. Thus. 2016 was a more normal/typical mildew year. so the disease pressure wasn’t too much of an issue. Then it was very dry until fall. He believes the vintage could be compared to 1961 or 2010. The result is an uninhibited. truly singular showing of Pontet-Canet this year—perhaps the richest. most sumptuous and hedonic expression of the vintage of all the great Left Bank wines.

 
99 Punkte Vinous / Galloni für den Chateau Pontet Canet 2016 PauillacAntonio Galloni bewertet den Chateau Pontet Canet 2016 im Januar 2019 wie folgt:

The 2016 Pontet-Canet is absolutely breathtaking. Powerful. ample and racy in the glass. the 2016 is one of the most exquisitely well-balanced young Pontet-Canets I can remember tasting. Savory. high-toned aromatics and brisk mineral notes lend energy and delineation as this vivid wonderfully alive wine opens up in the glass. The flavors are dark and incisive. but it is the wine's total sense of harmony that is most compelling. All of the elements are simply in the right place. The 2016 is tremendous. It's as simple as that. As is often the case. Pontet-Canet is one of the most singular wines in Bordeaux. Alfred Tesseron could have chosen to play things safe when he took over the management of the estate in the mid-1990s. Instead. he chose a very different path. No proprietor in Bordeaux has taken more risks over the last two decades than Alfred Tesseron. A commitment to biodynamic farming. sustainability across the entire estate more broadly. and the adoption of new concepts for Bordeaux. such as aging a portion of the wine in terra cotta. set Pontet-Canet apart from other properties in Pauillac and the Left Bank. Not surprisingly. the wine is also starkly different from the wines of neighboring estates.
 

97 Sucklingpunkte für den Chateau Pontet Canet 2016 PauillacVerkostungsbericht vom 03. Februar 2019:

The aromas of ripe blackcurrants. iodine. sweet tobacco and fresh flowers are spellbinding. Full-bodied with mouth-expanding. massive and natural tannins. Impressive fruit with hints of prunes. The finish is long and powerful. Needs six to seven years to soften and come together. Try from 2025.

The 2016 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is quite powerful and dense. Aging. and specifically. the barrel regime of 18 months in oak (60% new) has left the 2016 with a heavy toast/torrefaction quality that at present overpowers the dark fruit and Cabernet aromatics the wine showed from barrel. Frankly. I liked the 2016 more en primeur.

The 2020 Bellegrave (Pauillac) displays a deep purple-black color and pronounced notes of warm cassis, stewed black plums and redcurrant jelly, plus hints of cedar chest, bouquet garni and unsmoked cigars.

The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit, a fine bead of acidity, cedar and graphite pinning it down as Pauillac and nowhere else on the finish. Good show!

The 2020 Haut-Bages-Libéral is supple and seamless, bursting with aromas of sweet dark berries, petals and licorice, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate. Succulent and polished, it will offer a broad drinking window.

The 2019 Croizet-Bages is a dark, fleshy Pauillac. Black cherry, plum, new leather, licorice, tobacco and smoke give this hearty, medium to full-bodied wine a good deal of complexity. There are some rough edges, but also plenty to like. Croizet-Bages is a wine of substance that will blossom at the dinner table.

6 Dec, 2021 – This is a solid Pauillac with a medium to full body and chewy tannins that are polished and energetic . Plenty of blackcurrant, lemon and wet-earth character. A little tight at the end. Needs at least three or four years of bottle age to open. Will age very nicely.
 
94 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Lynch Moussas 2019 PauillacAntonio Galloni (Vinous) bewertet den Chateau Lynch Moussas 2019 Pauillac:
The 2019 Lynch-Moussas is a wild, potent wine. Dark red cherry, iron, smoke, espresso, licorice, leather and mint convey intensity and virile power. The 2019 is deep and fleshy, at times a bit rustic too, but long on character. I would give it a few years in bottle first.
 
92 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Lynch Moussas 2019 Pauillac Und Neal Martin (Vinous) zum Chateau Lynch Moussas 2019 Pauillac:
The 2019 Lynch-Moussas, in an embossed bottle to celebrate a century of ownership by the Castèja family, has an understated bouquet of blackberry, briar, tobacco and touches of pencil shaving, and still that touch of mint. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, good backbone, firm grip and much more substance on the finish compared to previous vintages, that tincture of Earl Grey coming through with time. This is an excellent, classically styled Pauillac.
 
91+ Punkte vom Wine Advocate für denWillim Kelley im April 2022:
BEST EVER für den Wineadvocate
A rather rich, dramatic rendition of this estate, the 2019 Lynch-Moussas bursts with aromas of dark berry fruit, pencil shavings and toasty new oak. Full-bodied, ample and muscular, with a fleshy core of fruit, succulent acids and ripe, powdery tannins that assert themselves on the finish, it will reward a bit of bottle age with flamboyant drinking.
 
91 Punkte vom Wine Spectator für den Chateau Lynch Moussas 2019 PauillacFür den Wine Spectator verköstigte James Molesworth den Chateau Lynch Moussas 2019 Pauillac:
Offers mulled plum, fig and blackberry fruit flavors that unfurl slowly over a velvety structure, while dark tobacco, cast iron and bay leaf details emerge through the slightly dusty finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2023 through 2034. 15,000 cases made.

With ripe tannins, a seamless, layered mouthfeel, and one heck of a finish, it comes closest in my mind to the estate 2010, and I think is clearly in the same realm as the 1989, 1990, 2000, 2009, 2010, 2015, and 2019. It offers pleasure today, but it certainly warrants 7-8 years, a decade if possible, of bottle age and will have 40-50 years of overall longevity.

The Grand Vin 2020 Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse De Lalande checks in as 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc that was raised in 60% new French oak. It has classic Pauillac character in its red, blue, and black fruits as well as graphite, cedar pencil, violet, and flower nuances. Seemingly from a cooler vintage with its purity, vibrancy, and focus, it nevertheless is concentrated and has ripe, gorgeous tannins, a great mid-palate, and a finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. A deep, concentrated, flawlessly balanced 2020 that's built for the long haul, it needs a solid decade of cellaring and will be a 50+-year wine. Of the recent trilogy of 2018, 2019, and 2020, director Nicolas Glumineau has been consist in preferring the 2020, although I think at this point the nudge goes to the 2019. Regardless, these are all truly singular, magical wines that every reader will be thrilled to have in the cellar. It's a good time to be a Bordeaux lover!

Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Zart tabakig, etwas scheue Frucht, ein Hauch von Pflaumen, florale Nuancen, verhaltenes Bukett. Mittlere Komplexität, rote Kirschen, frisch strukturiert, dezente Tannine, mineralisch, zart blättrig im Abgang, bleibt noch etwas kurz, ist nur eine Frage der Zeit, dass dieser Wein an Volumen zulegt.

While Justine Tesseron declined my request to taste at the property, I was able to acquire a bottle of the 2020 Pontet-Canet for review. The wine starts strong, wafting from the glass with attractive aromas of cherries, sweet berries and plum preserve mingled with lilac and licorice, but that's followed by a medium to full-bodied, firm and extracted palate that lacks the amplitude and flesh to conceal the rather drying tannins which dominate the earthy finish. It's an open secret among Bordeaux insiders that this estate—which has benefited from such significant and laudable investments and which was on such an upward trajectory through 2011—has been a perplexingly erratic performer since 2012, intermingling successful vintages with relative failures, and the 2020 only confirms that. While the 2020 isn't by any means a flawed wine, and time may well be kind to it, it doesn't transcend this estate's fifth growth status, even if this château's terroir clearly has the potential to.
 
98 Sucklingpunkte für den Chateau Pontet Canet 2020 Pauillac James Suckling beschreibt ihn im Januar 2023 wie folgt:
Aromas of blackcurrants and black cherries with hints of crushed walnuts, grilled thyme, cocoa powder and graphite. It’s full-bodied with layers of ultra-fine, silky tannins that elegantly coat your palate, allowing the juicy and vibrant fruit to shine. Delicate and pristine, yet compact with lots of energy and power to uncover in the coming years. It lasts for minutes and is delicious now. The purity of fruit is really impressive. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 32% merlot, 4% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot. 50% new oak 15% old oak and 35% concrete amphorae. Try after 2027.

The flagship from this estate, the 2020 Château Pontet-Canet is a beauty based on 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, and 4% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, brought up in 50% new oak, with 35% in amphora. Deep purple-hued with a great nose of dark currants, plums, tobacco leaf, and truffly earth, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a layered, seamless mouthfeel and a great finish. The higher Merlot content here really shows in its overall sexy, supple, seamless style, and while this already offers pleasure, it's going to be one for the ages as well.

Highly successful Pontet, one of the few Pauillacs that, for me, overperforms on its 2019. Inky purple with ruby reflections in colour. Lots of firm but upright tannins, a good dollop of graphite, pencil lead and cassis bud, there is depth through the mid palate shot through with wild blackberry, hawthorn, sage, rosemary and wild mint. It has personality, and is a little old school in the best possible way. Recommended. They have avoided the over-concentrated feel of some Pauillacs in the vintage, while remaining true to the appellation. 4% Petit Verdot completes the blend, 50% new oak 35% amphoras, 15% one-year barrels. First full vintage for Mathieu Bessonnet who replaced the previous long-term director Jean-Michel Comme in 2020. 100% first wine, as it has been for the past four years. 45% will be aged in new oak barrels, 15% one year, 40% in amphoras. The mildew pressure was stressful in the early part of the year, but they had learnt from 2018, and brought in the manpower to get around the whole vineyard in a (very long) day, so their yields ended up being close to normal.
