Product Details

Wine Advocate (Lisa Perrotti-Brown ): “Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Grand-Pontet features bright, vibrant kirsch, warm redcurrants, blackberries and wild blueberries notions with hints of tobacco, tilled soil and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, with irm, grainy tannins and a lively line lifting the fruit to a long minerally finish.” 94+/100

Jean-Marc Quarin: “Couleur sombre, intense et pourpre. Nez fin, fruité et moyennement aromatique. Ample à l’attaque, fondant au développement,juteux au milieu, accompagné d’un superbe toucher de bouche, le vin s’étire long, savoureux et charnu sur des nuances rares de fleurs et de fruits. Tannicité noble. Bonne longueur. ” 94/100

Vinous (Antonio Galloni): “The 2016 Grand-Pontet has come together impressively during its élevage. Espresso, chocolate, licorice, leather, new oak and smoke are generous in this deep, layered Saint-Émilion. Powerful, creamy and quite giving, the 2016 has a lot to offer. This is a decidedly extracted style, and yet all of the elements are very nicely balanced throughout.” 91/100

Vinous (Neal Martin): “The 2016 Grand-Pontet has an intense, opulent bouquet of black cherries, boysenberry and plenty of blue fruit, although it is missing some delineation and freshness. The palate is ripe on the entry and feels less weighty than the aromatics augur, but it is well balanced with fine acidity, tightening up toward quite a tannic finish. This is like two different wines in one bottle. It will be intriguing to see how this Saint-Émilion matures.” 91/100
