Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

So smooth, this is a rich, grandiose wine. Although it is full of black currant fruits and spice flavors, the texture is most impressive. Dusty tannins are integrated with juicy fruits seamlessly. The purest fruit flavors are allied to linear tannins in a precise yet generous way. The wine is evolving beautifully, but do not drink before 2020. - RV, Wine Enthusiast

This is a lovely Pontet, with liquorice root, chamomile, black pepper spice and an earthiness that gives it a more gentle, welcoming feel than many Pauillacs in the vintage. Red cherry and raspberry fruits, a mouthwatering finish and confident tannic grip. Plenty to enjoy here, a delicious wine. Harvest finished by September 29. Retasted after being open for one hour and showing even better, with nuanced floral aromatics. 1% Petit Verdot complets the blend. Certified fully organic at this point, the second vintage Ecocert and Biodyvin (and in 2014 also Demeter). Drinking Window 2021 - 2045 --Jane Anson, Decanter

A wine with lots of ripe berries, verging on dried fruits. Full and chewy with ripe, round, chewy tannins. It needs lots of bottle age. A wine of steel. From biodynamically grown grapes, as always. Better than from barrel. Try in 2018. - James Suckling

Proprietor Alfred Tesseron-s 2011 Pontet-Canet is packaged in an engraved, heavy bottle, which only adds to the attractiveness of this beauty. A dense purple color is accompanied by notes of forest floor, acacia flowers and creme de cassis in this full, rich, and unequivocally classic Pauillac. With soft but noticeable tannins as well as a complete, full-bodied mouthfeel, this 2011 will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring, and should age effortlessly for 15-20 years. Bravo!

Once again proprietor Alfred Tesseron has produced a wine of first-growth potential. One of the superstars of the vintage, Pontet-Canets 2011 exhibits an opaque purple color and a glorious bouquet of incense, subtle toast and copious quantities of creme de cassis. There is a floral underpinning, decent acidity and ripe tannin to this full-bodied effort. Big, rich, round and generously endowed, it should drink well for 20-25+ years. - Robert Parker

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2011 Pontet-Canet is deep garnet colored. It comes roaring out with bold notes of baked plums, boysenberry preserves, and dried mulberries, plus suggestions of Indian spices, menthol, and tobacco. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly styled, with bags of freshness and loads of mineral sparks, supported by fine-grained tannins, finishing long and earthy. 6/2022.- Lisa Perotti-Brown, Wine Independent
