Chateau de Pressac Saint Emilion 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Chateau de Pressac|
A 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.
The 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.
