JAMES SUCKLING: "You really want to drink this the minute you taste it with chocolate, walnut and cedar aromas and flavors. Full to medium body, very refined and flavorful. Seamless structure. Stone, currant leaf and tobacco. Why wait?"
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Already showing its tobacco, forest floor and cassis filled charms, this elegantly styled, forward, already drinkable wine offers sweet, fresh, plums, cocoa and smooth textures in the finish. Give it 2-4 years and this should be even more charming."
THE WINEADVOCATE: "Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2013 Pontet-Canet is evolving into tobacco, new leather and dried mulberries scents with a core of kirsch, baked plums and cigar box plus a waft of Indian spices. Medium-bodied, elegantly styled and wonderfully refreshing in the mouth, it has a solid line of grainy tannins and loads of mineral sparks on the finish."
WINE ENTHUSIAST: "This wine is rich, with generous black plum and berry fruits. It has a structure that is full, ripe and that will sustain the fruitiness of the wine over many years. The sensation is of velvet, with some force behind it. This remarkable wine will develop well over the medium term and then age for many years. Drink from 2022."
