The 2008 Grand-Pontet is a solidly made effort for the vintage. It came in at 14% natural alcohol and yields were very small (20 hectoliters per hectare). The wine exhibits a deep ruby/plum/garnet color and notes of Christmas fruitcake, underbrush, pepper and spice. It is an intriguingly spicy wine on the palate as well, with medium-bodied flavors, sweet tannin, and then a slight narrowing in the finish which kept my score from going any higher. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. Wine Advocate.May, 2011
