Straight off the nose this hits you with rich, dark fruits, spice, and the promise of longevity. There is a real focus and purity to the fruit, but the depth of flavour and firm wall of tannins leave you in no doubt that its a Pauillac. This has so much depth, with an inky, pencil-lead aspect on the attack, but what becomes clearer through the palate is in fact the freshness and the opening up of the fruit. As ever at Pontet, winemaker Jean-Michel Comme is searching for less and less intervention in the winemaking process, with the cellar moving away from any electricity at all. The 2015 wine has been aged in amphoras as well as in oak barrels. Bottled in July.

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Harvest 18 September to 3 October. Deep colour to the rim. Rich and concentrated but the aromatics a little blurred. Dark fruit with initially a hint of black olive. Palate supple, opulent with powerful but polished tannins. Lacks a little precision but plenty of depth and flavour and just enough freshness. Worth waiting to see how it develops. (JL)
