e Robert Parker – April 2013

Château de Pressac 2012 : 89/100 : Jean-François Quenin is working feverishly to bring spectacularly beautiful chateau high on a hill overloonking Saint-Emilion back to life. the final blend of 69% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec and Carmenere has resulted in a deep ruby/purple colored 2012 with notes of damp earth and blue fruits as well as a certain asuterity found in many 2012s. The lack of a convincing follow through in the finish seems to confirm that. Nevertheless, this is a very good, possibly excellent wine.
