Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru Classe
Alcohol 13,0 %
Chateau de Pressac is one of the most ‘post- medieval’ castles of Saint Emilion. It is situated on a slope top in the village Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse, not far from Ch. Faugères. The cru is owned by the Quenin family since 1997. They have saved cost, nor effort to raise to quality to the top. They invested in the vineyard and the chai, where small, new steel cuvees (40 to 60 hl) allow parcel vinification. It is remarkable that the vineyard, which is situated on slopes and a sort of ‘stairs’ against the slope, is treated by hand and is very qualitative. The award came with the new ranking in 2012 where Ch. Pressac was promoted to St. Emilion Grand Cru Classé (before Grand Cru). This is thanks to the beautiful quality of the wines from the last 10 years. The wines are powerfully framed (without being too rustic) and are full, round and provided with lots of fruit. The price remains reasonable. Hubert de Bouard is the advisor.
