Chateau de Pressac 2008, St Emilion Grand Cru
Deep ruby. This ripe and juicy wine is packed with a black currant, plum, cherries, with a mineral finish. Quite some tannins and taut acids. Wood ageing shows in the form of a bitter chocolate. The oldest Pressac we tasting is a 1964 vintage and is still doing fine. More complexity than most Saint Emilions with a solid body with a dryness. This wine is almost nostalgic for us, in the autumn days many years ago, when we first learned how to taste with a will.
