"A candidate for "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! Drink 2016-2046".

Robert Parker. (The Wine Advocate. #194. May 2011).

"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".
