"...focussed and straight, with a classic, structured feel. Black cherries, cassis, crushed flowers, and building minerality all flow to a medium to full-bodied layered, pure and long red."
92-94/100 Jeb Dunnuck (May-2018)

"The 2017 Pontet Labrie is distinguished in this range by its bright, floral-infused aromatics and red-toned fruit. Gracious and silky, but with plenty of the richness that is characteristic of these wines, the 2017 is positively stellar. Big, ample and rich, this dark-fruited, floral wine finishes with tremendous depth and a good deal of grip, too."
94/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

With the frosts in April 2017 and difficult conditions through the Summer, we were trepidatious of the outcome of this vintage in our vineyard. If you care about points (we tend not to), they are down by about 2 across the whole of the right bank and Pontet Labrie is no exception. But the initial reviews by Bordeaux' most eminent critics, Antonio Galloni and Neal Martin, and another former Wine Advocate alumni, Jeb Dunnuck, echo our view that Jonathan Maltus has made a wine that truly expresses its vintage, with greater freshness and lower alcohol than the big 2015/16s. This is the sort of typicity we’d hope for in a single vineyard wine.
