Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

9.5

Pontet Canet tasting and dinner with Alfred Tesseron.

2016 is such a beautifully, ripe and elegant vintage. The 16 stands tall from the other vintages we tasted.

The body is rich, bold and thick. Beautiful dark fruits of ripe, ruby; blackberries, plum, dark cherries, strawberries and amazing blue fruits shine as it sit on the palate. There is more balance in the 16...fruits and earth. Saddle-wood, tobacco, leather, dry soil, dry & moist clay, dry stone, rich dark earth, lead pencil, bright, fresh, red, blue, dark flowers with violets. Very nice acidity with a beautiful finish.

Don’t even touch a bottle for 15 plus years. This nice now but, you will only be cheating yourself out of a very special wine 15 plus years from now.

Photos of; Clyde and Alfred at the bar, their Amphora style cement tanks they ferment part of each vintage now, road signs of the good neighbors they keep and Chateau Pontet Canet.

Trivium

"Les Ivrettes Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Rich and tasty, big, bold and extracted and full of fruits.

Showing black fruits with tobacco, chocolates, mocha, leather, earth, peppercorn, cola, cedar, vanilla and licorice.

Full bodied and dry with great complexity and a great mouthfeel.

This is very tasty, especially after 3 hours in the decanter.

Still young, and would benefit from aging it for another 5 for 10 years.

14 8% alcohol by volume.

93 points.
