- When to drink this wine To be enjoyed from 2023 to 2053
- Tasted by Lisa Perrotti-Brown in 2021: "The 2018 Pontet-Canet is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. It was aged in 55% oak barrels and 45% amphorae. Deep garnet-purple in color, it explodes in the glass with an atomic perfume of raspberry tart, blackcurrant pastilles, rose oil and Chinese five-spice, giving way to suggestions of cinnamon stick, dusty soil, pencil lead and underbrush. The rich, seductive, full-bodied palate is a hedonist's dream, offering layer after layer of black and red berry jams with plenty of perfumed accents, a beautifully firm but chewy texture and tons of freshness, finishing long with a firework display of exotic spices. This wine is delicious straight from the cellar, but has the backbone to evolve for three decades or more!
