A dark, inky purple, aromas of dark fruit, plum, cedar and spice give way to a wave of sweet, blue fruit on the palate. The texture is silky and soft. There is a little crunchy fruit on the mid-palate, but it has a way to go and is packed full of sensual dark fruit. Big and high-toned, the finish is long.

2016 is Alfred Tesseron’s 40th vintage with Pontet Canet, and since the early 1990s he has been making constant improvements. 10 years ago he began converting the vineyards to organic and biodynamic farming with horses. 95% of the total production went into the 2016 Grand Vin, and a part of the maturation was done in amphorae. These cement eggs were installed in 2012 by Tesseron who feels it allows a better fruit expression.
The 2016 Pontet Canet is very layered with lots of black fruit interplaying with sweet licorice and savory notes. It is already very rich with an uplifting freshness that continues from start to finish and has garnered widespread acclaim from the critics.
“It brings together the richness of the 2009 with the structure of the 2010” 96-99 points, Antonio Galloni
“This is an extravagant Pauillac for the vintage that will age over many years.” 95-97 points, Neal Martin
