A solid red with blueberries, blackberries, sweet tobacco and tea. Medium to full body. Love the salty undertones and fresh finish. Wait and see.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Grand-Pontet is a little reticent on the nose, offering subtle black forest cake and baked blackberries notes with hints of tar, charcuterie and Marmite toast. Medium-bodied and slightly angular at this youthful stage, it has a crisp line and chewy tannins featuring on the finish. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
