Sommelier Selection - Château Pontet Labrie 2016-2020
Jonathan Maltus started in Saint Emilion in 1994 with a small vineyard - Château Teyssier, which he has added to over the years, so that he now has 50 hectares under vines. He was early and significant in the garagiste movement with the introduction of Le Dôme in 1996, a remarkable expression of Cabernet Franc that Robert Parker frequently rates in the top 90’s, including scores of 99 and 100 points for 2009 and 2010. Meanwhile, his last single vineyard release - Vieux Château Mazerat (VCM) in 2008 was, alongside Cheval Blanc and Ausone, the only Saint Emilion to be awarded five stars from Decanter. As Will Lyons of The Wall Street Journal and the Sunday Times commented ‘What Jonathan has achieved in Bordeaux is nothing short of remarkable’. Jonathan has one last boutique vineyard (just over a hectare) on the plateau in Saint Emilion up his sleeve, planted on some of the best soils in the region, with old vines (some pre-'56), surrounded by Grand Cru Classé châteaux. He approached Tom in Summer 2014 as wanted to offer the wine on a strict allocation-only basis directly to an exclusive clientele - our own Grand Crew and affiliates. And so an exciting new collaboration was born with a project title "Le Chapeau" which has come to fruition with the 'Pontet Labrie'.
