The Estate

Château de Pressac, a “Grand Cru Classé” of the world renowned and exceptional appellation of Saint Emilion, rises above the hillock, called a “tertre” locally, situated at Saint Etienne de Lisse, to the east of Saint Emilion, facing south.
The property covers 40 hectares in a single, continuous block, of which 36 hectares are planted in vines.
Dominique and Jean-François Quenin have been the fortunate proprietors since 1997 and produce wines of elegance, which fully express the excellence of the terroir of Château de Pressac.

Blend

74.5% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec, 1.5% Carmenere

Tasting Notes

Tasted by Antonio GALLONI – VINOUS : 92-95 / 100

“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.”
