Château de Pressac 2017 : 92 -95
The 2017 de Pressac is terrific. Mocha, raspberry jam, mint and dried flowers give the 2017 its distinctive aromatic signatures. In 2017, Pressac is a bit more slender than it typically is. Nevertheless, Pressac remains one of the most under the radar wines in all of Bordeaux. Savvy consumers won’t want to miss it. The blend is 74.5% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Merlot and 1.5% Carmenere, with the aromatic brightness of the Cabernets very much in evidence. Tasted three times.
