2021 Château de Pressac  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93
Smoky, with a leafy, tobacco edge to the elegant, refined, fresh, cherries and plums. Medium-bodied, soft and silky, there is a nice sweetness to the fruits on the palate and in the finish, with its touch of chocolate-mint in the endnote. Not much wine was made as the yields were under 15 hectoliters per hectare. Drink from 2023-2035. 92-94

Fresh, juicy, soft and polished, the wine is medium-bodied, supple and elegantly styled. The plums are fresh and the sweet cherries are even fresher. The licorice and espresso accents add to the fun. The finish, with its freshness and dark chocolate covered, lifted red fruits resonates. 92-94 Pts

2018 Château de Pressac  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 94
Floral and spicy, with a dash of spearmint, licorice, black cherries and smoke on the nose. The wine is elegant, fresh, medium/full-bodied, soft and silky, with an inviting finish of sweet, ripe, plums, cherry and black raspberry. One of the few Bordeaux wines using all five allowable grape varieties, blending 74% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Carmenere and 1% Malbec.

Deep in color, the wine has flesh with rich, dark fruits, silky textures and polished tannins. There is length and character in the finish. This is the best wine yet from de Pressac.

With a good depth of color, this wine shows more polish and depth than usual. Ripe, dark, juicy, sweet plums and licorice at its core, this ends with freshness and a silky mouth feel.

2009 Château de Pressac  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 89
Filled with earth, plums, cherries and fennel, this medium bodied, round textured, value wine from St. Emilion will deliver pleasure on release. Interestingly, this is one of the few Bordeaux wines to utilize the talents of two consultants, Hubert de Bouard and Alain Raynaud.

2008 Château de Pressac  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 87
Surprisingly light in color and fruit, this forward, medium bodied, refined, spicy, red berry dominated wine is already showing what it has to offer. This is not a wine for aging. Instead, it is an easy drinking, soft textured, pleasant wine for current consumption.

2005 Château de Pressac  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91
Starting to drink quite well at 10 years of age, the wine has developed nicely. The earthy, truffle laden nose is made even better with its ripe, sweet, black raspberries and dark cherry notes. The soft, smooth finish ends with fresh, juicy plums, cherries and licorice. This has room for further evolution.
