Tasting Notes

James Suckling 95-96/100 : This is really fantastic in 2016 with beautiful balance and depth of fruit. Focused and tight palate. Full-bodied and super long. Wonderful.”

VINOUS – Antonio Galloni : 91-94 / 100 : “The 2016 de Pressac is a big, enticing wine. Ample and dramatic in feel, the 2016 possesses notable richness and sumptuousness in all of its dimensions. An exotic mélange of black berry jam, chocolate, menthol, licorice and dark spices build into the fleshy, voluptuous finish. All the elements are wonderfully fused together. Distinctive and bold, the 2016 has a lot to recommend. Tasted three times.”
