Purple color, aromatic bouquet of black and red fruit (blackcurrant, cherry, blackberry and mulberry as well as bilberry and blueberry) with tones of spice and undergrowth. A subtle nose. On the palate fine tannins appear, which are both elegant and silky. Could be kept for between 15 and 30 years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Pressac offers opulent red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit on the nose, not quite as well defined as its peers, yet clean and pure. The palate is smooth and rounded, plump in the mouth with plenty of red berry fruit, although the finish needs more precision and tension. Let's see how this turns out in bottle.

Wine SpectatorA juicy and forward style, with a lush core of warmed cassis and cherry reduction notes backed by singed cedar, vanilla and sandalwood flavors. The fruit detail wins out easily on the accessible finish. Drink now through 2030. 9,525 cases made.
