Jonathan Maltus OBE is one of Bordeaux’ most pioneering and successful 100-point winemakers, famous for his single vineyard cru wines which are consistently highly-rated on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2015 Jonathan approached us as he wanted to present a very special new wine: his last boutique vineyard, Pontet Labrie, on the plateau in Saint-Émilion on some of the best soils in the region, with old vines (some pre-’56), surrounded by Grand Cru Classé châteaux.

The entire production of this boutique wine (300 cases maximum per year) is available exclusively from Honest Grapes.

Deep nose with impressive purity and focus but plenty of complexity. Initial aromas of raspberry jam, sandalwood and vanilla pod, give way to a fresher note of violets, and nice to see fresh red fruits – ripe strawberries nestled amongst the darker black cherries and berries. Whiffs of star anise, sourdough crust, cacao nibs, cumin and tapenade complete the intoxicating bouquet.
Palate has good tension and intensity, broad and long penetrating salty tannins wrapping protectively around the dark, spiced red plum and blackberry core. Dryly rich, some graphite, cocoa powder and toast and nicely svelte, elegant fruit that persists well. This is a very different beast from 2018. I imagine this has a long life ahead but is pleasingly nimble and deft for another solar vintage.
