"As always this is a blend predominantly Merlot, picked on October 1st, with the complementary Cabernet Franc picked on October 12th. The alcohol is 15%, the highest figure in the Maltus portfolio (only by 0.1% admittedly) with a pH of 3.65. The nose is filled with wonderfully perfumed and grilled blackcurrant and black bean fruits, with a touch of limestone dust, along with praline, tobacco and macerated cherry. A rich, bold, substantial and brad palate, with a very polished, creamed fruit substance running through the middle, and a peppery substance and energy. It is rich, with grilled blackcurrant, grilled damson and currant fruits through to the very end, all wrapped a svelte and tightly knit tannins. A high-alcohol model here, but one that is substantial and imposing in style. The élevage will be in 80% new oak." 94-96/100 Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor 

"....It has a mineral-laced style as well as awesome notes of chocolate black fruits, baking spice, chocolate, and liquid violets. Deep, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and impressively balanced, it shows the slightly more restrained style of all these 2018s from Maltus and is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age, and drink nicely for 15+ years or more."  94-96/100, Jeb Dunnuck

"...the deep purple-black colored 2018 Pontet Labrie gives up expressive savory scents of Marmite toast, charcuterie, tapenade and wild sage over a core of blackberry pie, baked plums and mincemeat with a waft of unsmoked cigars. Full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with black fruit preserves and loads of savory accents, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with a lingering peppery kick." 93-95/100, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
