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.

"I loved the 2020 Château Pontet Labrie, and it’s a seriously good Saint-Emilion in the making. Offering full-bodied aromas and flavors of blue fruits (cassis, blueberries), violets, graphite, and ample rocky, mineral nuances, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a good spine of acidity, flawless balance, and a great finish. It has everything I look for in a great Bordeaux with intensity, richness, freshness, and length. Gorgeous stuff." 94-96+ pts, Jeb Dunnuck

"The 2020 Pontet Labrie is a gorgeous, lush Saint-Émilion. Inky red fruit, sweet vanillin, spice, rose petal and cedar race out of the glass. The 2020 marries Jonathan Maltus’s signature richness with notable brightness and energy, a combination that works well here. Mocha, cedar and incense linger. The 2020 is quite possibly the best version of Pontet Labrie since it was introduced a few years ago." 92-94 pts, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
