Château de Pressac 2015 : 94/100 One of the highlights of the year, the 2015 de Pressac is outrageously beautiful, just as it was from barrel. The inclusion of the Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Carménère gives the wine striking aromatic nuance and myriad shades of dimension. Super ripe, inky red plum, spice, leather and espresso nuances build into the huge, voluptuous finish. There is more than enough structure to allow the 2015 to age well for many years. This one of the most distinctive and yet also under-the-radar wines being made in Saint-Émilion today. The blend is 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Malbec and 5% Carménère. Don’t miss it. Alain Raynaud and Hubert de Boüard consult. Tasted three times. Drinking window: 2023-2035
