Château Pontet Labrie
Introducing "Pontet Labrie"
- Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France
“The 2016 Pontet Labrie is a dark, sumptuous Saint-Émilion. Dark cherry, plum, chocolate and smoke all flesh out as this powerful, explosive wine shows off its personality. Full-throttle to the core, Pontet Labrie will thrill readers who enjoy luscious, bold wines. There is plenty to admire here.”
94/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Jan-2019)
“The blend here is 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, and the élevage was in 80% new oak. It begins with a rather shy character on the nose, all vanilla flower and cocoa bean, with a sprinkling of limestone dust. The palate shows a rich and broad texture, polished with a substantial grip underneath it, but with a very svelte and elegant bed of tannins. It feels cool and composed, the rich seam of tannins showing some impact in the middle of the wine, which remains silky and substantial at the same time. It carries the flavours of leather, coffee bean and degraded black cherry fruit. Overall, a delight, with a long and grippy finish."
95/100 Wine Doctor (Chris Kissack) (Jan-2019)
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.
