The Wine Advocate

"A candidate for the “wine of the vintage,” Pontet Canet’s 2008 boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious aromas of sweet blueberries, blackberries and black currant fruit intertwined with lead pencil shavings, subtle barbecue smoke and a hint of forest floor. Full-bodied, with fabulous richness, texture and tremendous freshness, this first-growth-like effort is more developed than the uber-powerful 2010. Give it 5-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. Bravo! "

Decanter Magazine

"Oh, I love this! This is Pauillac distilled, flirting on the edge of ripeness with brambly cassis and dark chocolate. This is just the right mix of open and closed for me, layered and confident but not overdone. It has feathery, well brushed tannins, and firm, generous black fruits. A great Pauillac which is just starting to rev its engine. Again, it's not as concentrated and long-living as in the ripest vintages, but it's a real success with decades ahead of it.

"Lovely beetroot aromas with chalky tannins and vivid but integrated acidity. Superb fruit power which is satisfying and complete but retains a sense of classic restraint and savouryness. Such a lovely wine, this. Every element is spot on."

Jeff Leve

„Rich, full-bodied, deep, intense and loaded to the brim with crème de cassis, tobacco, smoke, wet forest floor and cherry pipe tobacco elements, the wine is mouth-filling, tannic, long, deep and complex. Everything about this is just great. But patience is going to be needed, as this will probably not hit its peak for at least another 5-8 years.2

„Still holding much of what this has to offer in reserve, the wine is tight at the moment. With air and effort, the concentrated waves of ripe, fresh, juicy, blackberry, tobacco and earth make their way to the surface. This is quite nice, with ripe, soft tannins, but it is still primary. Another 7-10 years will add a lot to the wine, and it could deserve a higher score. The wine was made from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.“

„This is not the best time to be popping a cork on this future beauty. It's tight and hard to a lot of pleasure from at the moment. Yet, with that in mind, it's easy to see the high quality of ripe fruit, soft tannins, concentration and intensity. I'd give this at least 6 to 10 years from today before popping a cork.“

„Young, still primary, but delicious, the tannins are polished, the fruit is concentrated, the wine is complex, deep and fresh. This is probably still quite well priced and is worth taking a look at.“

„If this is a precursor to how the 2012 Pontet Canet is going to develop, perhaps 2012 is a vintage worth looking at, as this big, concentrated, full bodied, cassis, blackberry, earth, truffle, smoke and tobacco filled wine is fresh, polished, balanced, rich, long and still quite young.“

96 Punkte (Mai 2013)


„Still deep in color, with an explosion of black and blue fruit, cassis, cedar, coffee, stone, earth, smoke and cigar box aromatics. Powerful, rich, tannic and structured to age, from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and a drop of Petit Verdot, this luscious and lusty Pauillac demands at least another decade in the cellar.“

96 Punkte (Mai 2012)


„2008 Pontet Canet is another winner from Alfred Tesseron, who has been making better wine every year since the 1994 vintage. Black fruit paired with spice, licorice, earth and toasty oak introduce your senses to the wine. This powerful, full bodied, cassis and blackberry jam filled wine is fresh, fat and concentrated, ending in a wave in chocolate covered, dark berries.“

95 Punkte (Juli 2010)


„08 Château Pontet Canet is deep, dark ruby. The nose expresses sweet black fruit, cassis, and fresh earthy notes. “Wow” is the first descriptor I used to describe what the wine feels like on your palate. This wine is incredibly concentrated with dense, ripe, rich, almost flamboyant fruit. The texture is fresh, fat, rich, juicy and opulent. Everything is in balance in this packed and stacked wine which finishes with intense purity.“

Jean-Marc Quarin

„Goûté deux fois en un an, ce vin est une des stars du millésime dans le médoc. Couleur sombre, d’intensité moyenne. Nez de fruits mûrs, vanillé et frais. Entrée en bouche juteuse, puis le vin se développe très fruité, sur un beau toucher, des notes de framboises et de vanille. Il s’achève savoureux et sèveux sur des tannins fins. C’est long et très bon.“

17.5/20 oder 95 Punkte (Sep. 2013)


„Couleur sombre et intense. Le nez se détache pour l'éclat de son fruit, sa profondeur, sa précision et ses nuances. Bouche dense et pulpeuse dès l'entrée et le vin se développe très aromatique avec de la puissance et une sensation inédite de vie au palais : un mélange de fraîcheur d'arômes et de pulpe fondante. Sans faiblesse au milieu de la bouche, il s'achève profond et long avec du goût. Non seulement c'est incrachable, mais en plus, ce vin dessine une expression nouvelle vis-à-vis de ses pairs. Assemblage : 65 % cabernet sauvignon, 30 % merlot, 4 % cabernet franc, 1% petit verdot.“

René Gabriel's BDX Total

"Dunkles, dichtes Granat mit violettem Schimmer. Pfeffriges Bouquet, feine Zedernnote, schwarze Beeren, heller Tabak, zeigt somit in der Nase eine gewisse St. Julien-Affinität. Eleganter, langer Gaumen. Fein gewobene Tannine die eine delikate Süsse ausstrahlen, erst im Nachklang kommen die stützenden und auch verlangenden Tannine zum Tragen, geht in Richtung Klassik und bietet Garantie für ein erstaunlich langes Leben. Es sind Parallelen zum eigenen 88er vorhanden, der fast 20 Jahre bis zu seiner ersten Genussreife brauchte."

Jeb Dunnuck

"Unquestionably one of the gems in the vintage is the 2008 Pontet-Canet, which reminds me of the 2005 with its concentrated, deep, powerful style. Beautiful dark fruits, graphite, obvious minerality, and classic Pauillac lead pencil notes all emerge from this still youthful, full-bodied, and pure 2008 that’s 4-5 years away from maturity and will keep for 30+ years. Hats off to Alfred Tesseron for another awesome wine that ranks up with the crème de la crème of the vintage."

"Saturated inky-ruby. Classy aromas of blackcurrant and graphite are lifted by Oriental spices and plum liqueur. Sweet, dense and consistent from start to finish, with enticing, creamy flavors of dark berries and chocolate. Finishes long and pure, with a solid tannic bite but with so much sweet, ripe fruit that you hardly notice. Pontet-Canet has been consistently excellent in recent years, and this vintage appears to be among the most successful."
