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.

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.

The 2016 Pichon Baron is seamless and racy from start to finish. Sensual and super-expressive. with soft contours. silky tannins and exceptional finesse. Pichon Baron is one of the more accessible wines in its peer group today. Plum. mocha. leather. spice and chocolate all build effortlessly. As outstanding as Pichon Baron is. the 2016 gives the impression it is playing things safe. It would be nice to see a little more daring and risk.

 
97 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2016 PauillacLisa Perrotti Brown im November 2018:

Deep garnet-purple colored. the 2016 Pichon-Longueville Baron offers a suave and seductive nose of warm red and black currants. black plum preserves. truffles. tapenade and rose hip tea with touches of sandalwood and Chinese five spice plus a waft of iron ore. Medium to full-bodied. firmly structured and packed with mineral and exotic spice-laced black fruits. it finishes very long with compelling herbal sparks.

 
99 Sucklingpunkte für den Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2016 PauillacJames Suckling Januar 2019:

The concentration and largesse of the 2016 Pichon Baron is apparent from the get-go with incredibly alluring. ripe and expansive fruit aromas in the blackberry. dark-cherry. mulberry and plum zone. Espresso and cedar. as well as a slate-like. stony mineral edge add complexity. The palate has incredible depth. drive and detail. Fine and plush tannins stretch the palate in every direction. So fresh and vivacious. this is the greatest Pichon Baron since 1989 and has a long future. Try from 2024.

 
96 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Pichon Longueville Baron 2016 PauillacVinous / Neal Martin Januar 2019:

The 2016 Pichon-Longueville Baron electrifies the olfactory sense with a stunning bouquet of intense blackberry. cedar and graphite aromas that are quintessential Pauillac. 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.

The 2016 Clerc Milon is striking. Here. the interplay of dense fruit and supporting structure make for a wonderfully complete and expressive wine. Dark blue stone fruit. licorice. lavender. spice and menthol are all beautifully delineated in the glass. The aromatic and structure of both Cabernets come through with notable energy and precision. The 2016 has enough density and pedigree to drink well for many years to come.

 
Chateau Clerc Milon 2016 mit 94+ Parker Punkten bewertetLisa Perrotti Brown im November 2018:

The Cabernet Franc was fantastic this year. so it was all used in the grand vin. The final blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon. 29% Merlot. 13% Cabernet Franc. 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Carménère. Deep garnet-purple colored. the 2016 Clerc Milon leaps from the glass with beautiful scents of chocolate-covered cherries. plum preserves and crushed blackcurrants with suggestions of lilacs. cardamom. underbrush and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied. the palate has a firm frame of finely grained tannins and seamless freshness lifting the perfumed fruit to a nice long finish.

Hot crushed stones and dark berries jump out of the glass. Full body. very dense fruit and powerful tannins. yet it remains agile and bright with beauty and energy. So muscular and toned. Truly outstanding Clerc for the future. Unwavering nature to this. Try after 2024.

The 2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a powerful. exciting wine. That is the good news. But readers are going to have to be patient. as the 2016 shows very little of the upfront appeal that was so evident when it was in barrel. In the glass. the 2016 is sumptuous. vivid and incredibly detailed. with generous super-ripe red fruit and floral notes that develop with time. The wine's concentration and vibrancy lead me to think it will enjoy a very long life. Wow!

 
94+ Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2016 PauillacLisa Perrotti Brown im November 2018:

The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste gives up pure kirsch and red and black currants with violets and baking spices. Medium-bodied. firm and grainy. it's very expressive with good concentration and length.

 
97 Sucklingpunkte für den Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2016 PauillacJames Suckling im Februar 2019:

A neoclassical edition of Grand-Puy-Lacoste. this has cedar. graphite. deeply integrated cedar and spicy-oak influence and a very fresh array of ripe blackberries. dark cherries and cassis. The palate is so seamless. It builds beautifully and delivers a long. seamless array of perfectly ripe dark fruit. swathed in fine. firm. ascending layers of tannins. As good as we have seen in recent vintages. this is a star of the vintage. Try from 2024.

The 2016 Saint-Pierre (Saint-Julien) is a powerful. brooding Saint-Julien. Smoke. game. licorice. menthol and grilled herbs add to a feeling of gravitas and pure power. Huge on the palate. with tremendous depth and exceptional balance. Saint-Pierre is once again one of the Sleeper wines of the Left Bank. Don't miss it. Tasted two times.

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.

Glorious aromas of blackcurrants. blackberries and flowers. from violets to roses. Iron and rust undertones. Full-bodied. dense and very layered with loads of richness. It goes on for minutes. Reminds me of the 1986. Best in decades? Take a first look at it in 2025.
 

97 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für denNeal Martin im Januar 2019:

The 2016 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has an enthralling bouquet of tobacco-infused black fruit. shaved truffle and pencil shavings; crushed stone emerges with continued aeration. The Cabernet Sauvignon is clearly in the driving seat here. just like the 1996. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin. more saline and marine-influenced than Pichon Baron. and a tad spicier toward the finish. which is one of the most impressively persistent I have ever encountered in a Pichon-Lalande. fanning out with gusto and leaving the mouth still tingling 60 seconds after it has departed. This is a benchmark for the estate. the best Nicolas Glumineau has overseen in his tenure... thus far.
 

100 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für denAntonio Galloni im Januar 2019:

The 2016 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is every bit as regal as it has always been. Towering and spectacularly rich in the glass. the 2016 captures every ounce of potential is showed from barrel. The 2016 is a vivid. dramatically sweeping wine that will leave readers week at the knees. Beams of tannin give the 2016 soaring intensity that is matched by a host of aromas and flavors that open up in the glass. Blackberry jam. graphite. spice. menthol. licorice. pencil shavings and spice are all finely sketched in a bold. savory Pauillac that hits all the right notes. The 2016 Pichon Comtesse has been riveting on each of the four occasions I have tasted it from barrel thus far. making it easily one of the wines of the vintage. Nicolas Glumineu and his team turned out an epic Pichon Comtesse in 2016. Don't miss it!

The 2016 Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is blended of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon. 21% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc aged for 18 months in 60% new oak. Deep purple-black in color. it is a little mute. slowly unfurling to reveal a core of crushed blackcurrants. blueberry compote and black raspberries with nuances of cinnamon stick. violets. star anise. menthol and pencil shavings plus a waft of fallen leaves. Medium-bodied and super intense in the mouth. the palate bursts with black fruits and savory layers. complemented by red fruit sparks and framed by fantastically ripe. fine-grained tannins. finishing very long with a lingering suggestion of minerality.

The 2016 Brane-Cantenac has been on a roll of late. under the watchful eye of Henri Lurton. This latest bottled vintage is superb. The divine. pure blackberry and bilberry bouquet develops touches of graphite in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. silky-smooth texture and a superb bead of acidity. This is not a powerful Brane-Cantenac. and it is perhaps less austere than I suspected en primeur. but it should drink beautifully over the next three decades. If you have a penchant for traditional claret. it really doesn’t come better than this.

 
93 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Brane Cantenac 2016Antonio Galloni Januar 2019:

The 2016 Brane-Cantenac is very pretty and nuanced. The richness of the year comes through. and yet there is a good bit of freshness and energy as well to balance things out nicely. Brane-Cantenac offers a fine expression of the year in a wine that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Time in the glass brings out an attractive register of floral notes that add to the wine's undeniable appeal.
