Tasting Notes

"Ripe pastille black character with sweet ripe fruit and some lighter fresh notes. Good complexity and bright ripe core overlaid with oak spice and sweet toast. Lively and fresh, fine soft tannins and lovely length." Xenia Irwin MW, Waitrose Partner & Wine Buyer

"With ripe black-plum fruit and finely integrated sophisticated tannins, this is a rich wine that wears its alcohol easily. The juicy acidity at the end keeps the wine crisp and fruity." Wine Enthusiast

Château de Pressac

Château de Pressac dates back to at least 1737 but was recently purchased by Jean Francois Quenin in 1997. Since then Quenin has replanted the entire vineyard. He has also invested a large sum of money in rebuilding and modernising the winemaking facilities.

This renovation allows Château de Pressac to vinify on a parcel by parcel basis, as the estate now has one vat per parcel. Interestingly, at Château de Pressac, they use a system of cube-shaped, cement vats for the vinification.

The 10, cube-shaped vats range in size from 45, 50 and 60 hectoliters. The St. Emilion vineyards of Château de Pressac consist of 42 hectares planted to 72% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and a smattering of Carmenère and Malbec.

The terroir is split into two separate soils - limestone based on the plateau and more clay on the slopes. The wine is aged in 65% new, French oak barrels for an average of 12 months.
