A fruit-forward and structured Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion

A Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion, the Chateau Grand-Pontet 2018 offers the experience of a great red wine from the right bank of Bordeaux in an exceptional vintage.

Located on a plateau to the west coast of Saint-Emilion, the Grand Cru Classe Chateau Grand-Pontet watches over a 14-hectare vineyard, spread over great limestone, clay-limestone and sandy-clay soils. The estate is dominated by Merlot (70%), supplemented by Cabernet Franc (17.5%), Cabernet Sauvignon (7.5%) and Malbec (5%). The wine is aged in oak barrels (90% new wood).

At the tasting, the Chateau Grand-Pontet 2018 offers a complex aromatic bouquet, with notes of ripe black fruits, cherry, fresh cedar and dried herbs. The gourmet palate reveals tasty notes of black fruits and nicely textured tannins.

Parker : 89-91 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Grand-Pontet has a deep purple-black color and begins a bit cedary with underlying mulberries, warm plums and cherry preserves plus wafts of dusty soil, garrigue and dried herbs. Full-bodied and laden with earth-sparked black fruit, it has a chewy frame and finishes a little firm.
