99 Suckling Punkte für den Chateau Pontet Canet 2019 PauillacJames Suckling über den Chateau Pontet Canet 2019 Pauillac:

The aromas to this are really amazing, with a potpourri of spices and dried flowers, as well as redcurrants, sweet plums and even some peaches. Full-bodied with layers of ripe fruit and ultra-fine tannins that spread across the palate in an encompassing yet always elegant and pure way. It’s succulent and unadulterated. Like crushed, perfectly ripened grapes. The length is rather endless. The tannins build. Fabulous young red. 35% in amphora and the rest in 50% new oak and 15% one-year oak. 65% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot, the rest cabernet franc and petit verdot. From biodynamically grown grapes. Try after 2028, but an absolute joy to taste now.

 
96 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Chateau Pontet Canet 2019 PauillacAntonio Galloni (Vinous) bewertet den Chateau Pontet Canet 2019 Pauillac:

The 2019 Pontet-Canet was so effusive and generous en primeur. Today, though, it is quite reticent. That won't be an issue for those who can be patient, but patience indeed will be the key here. Dark red fleshed fruit, tobacco, cedar, spice, kirsch, mint and blood orange gradually open with a bit of coaxing. Imposing tannins wrap it all together. The 2019 is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty, but it needs time.

The 2019 Pontet Canet was picked from September 23 until October 10, finishing with the Petit Verdot, and bottled in mid-June/July. My sample, tasted at the property, was decanted. Matured in 50% new oak and 35% concrete amphora, this is endowed with an intense, enveloping bouquet of opulent blackberry and boysenberry fruit laced with crushed violet and light fig aromas, becoming more floral with aeration and revealing crushed violet petals. The palate is medium-bodied with layered black fruit, cracked black pepper, hints of pencil lead and a splash of soy. This is one of the most powerful Pauillac wines that I encountered this vintage, very juicy and with plenty of rondeur on the very spicy finish. This should give three decades of drinking pleasure.

 
94 Punkte vom Wine Spectator für den Chateau Pontet Canet 2019 PauillacFür den Wine Spectator verköstigte James Molesworth den Chateau Pontet Canet 2019 Pauillac:

Very lush out of the gate, with waves of gently mulled plum, blackberry and black currant fruit that roll through slowly, lined with alder, sweet tobacco, worn cedar and singed savory notes. Delivers a late tug of iron that's well-buried on a finish marked by lingering perfume, resulting in an end impression of a rich wine that's very light on its feet. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2036.

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.

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.

Pontet Canet 2021 Klare dunkle Nase, mit saftiger schwarzer Kirsche. Die Tannine sind recht präsent und zu Beginn noch fordernd. Mit mehr Zeit im Glas, wird der Wein offener und zeigt auch ein paar minzige frische Nuancen, seine Frucht schwenkt etwas in das heller rotbeerige mit einem Hauch an Bleistift erinnernd. Er geiwinnt an Esprit und Leichtigkeit mit der Zeit, ein feiner und verspielter Jahrgang für Pontet Canet. 93-94
 
 
W91-93 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Chateau Pontet Canet 2021 Pauillacilliam Kelley im April 2022:

Offering up wild, exotic aromas of blackberries, cloves and Indian spices mingled with notions of rose petal, bruised orchard fruit and cherry pit that evolve rapidly in the glass, the 2021 Pontet-Canet is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a layered mid-palate and refined tannins that assert themselves on the firm, saline finish. Always one of the Médoc's most singular, idiosyncratic wines, it will be interesting to see how it performs in bottle.
 
 
95-96 Sucklingpunkte für den James Suckling im Mai 2022:

Plenty of blackberry and blueberry with wet earth and crushed stone. Some spice,tobacco and lead pencil, too. It’s full-bodied with layered tannins and brightness. Fine and chewy at the end.

96-98+ Punkte vom Wine Advocate für denChateau Pontet Canet 2020
Die Degustationsnotiz des Wine Advocate zum Chateau Pontet Canet 2020 Pauillac :

The 2020 Pontet-Canet is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, aging in 50% new French oak barriques, 35% concrete amphorae and 15% in one-year-old barrels. Harvest began on the 14th September for the Merlot, and the final lot of Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested on 30th September.Opaque purple-black in color, it needs significant aeration and swirling to coax out evocative notes of black cherry preserves, raspberry pie, blackcurrant pastilles and damp soil, before launching into gorgeous floral and spice notions of red roses, cinnamon stick, star anise and cardamom, with a waft of crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate reveals a lot of depth and polish, delivering mouth-coating red and black fruits with loads of fragrant earth and floral sparks, framed by velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral tinged. This is a singular, fascinating expression of the vintage and highly recommended!

 
98-99 Suckling-Punkte für denChateau Pontet Canet 2020
James Suckling schreibt zum Chateau Pontet Canet 2020 Pauillac Folgendes:

This is integrated, with superb density and beauty, offering blackcurrant, mineral and some bark. Full-bodied, yet so polished and refined. Crushed stone. Lots of expression and texture to this wine. Creamy. Pure and precise. Elegant, yet layered. Slightly plusher than the 2019. Dense, yet agile. Fresh as always. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 32% merlot, 4% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot. 50% new oak 15% old oak and 35% concrete amphorae.

 

Decanter.com (Jane Anson) : 97 / 100

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.
