Château de Pressac 2016 :

A vibrant purple colour with finessed oak on the nose and exotic black pepper and cinnamon spicing at the end of the palate. This is a wine with great impact even though the tannins are elegant and well drawn out. This year it is going up to 18 months ageing from 12 months, a reflection of the quality of the vintage. 66% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the remainder made up of Malbec and Carmenère. Drinking Window 2027-2045.
