eRobertParker – June 2015

erobertparkerChâteau de Pressac 2005 : 92/100 : A blend of 72% Merlot, 14 % Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Carmenère and Malbec, this wine comes from the most beautiful fortified château in all of Bordeaux. The 2005 De Pressac was strutting its stuff in my horizontal tasting. Loads of cassis, cherry liqueur, plum, licorice and forest floor are present in this inky purple wine. Youthful, with some background minerality and moderately high tannin, it is stunningly rich, full, and again, a candidate for another two decades of cellaring.  See the PDF file
