    Cuvée presentation

    100% destemmed, the harvest is vinified plot by plot. The wines are aged for 12 months in barriques, 65% of which are new. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pressac (= Malbec) and Carménère make up a complex register. We encounter notes of red and black fruit, spices and undergrowth. Its fine tannins and silky texture mean it has both good aging potential and can be enjoyed when young.

    Information about domain Château Pressac

    The treaty marking the end of the Battle of Castillon, effectively ending the 100 Years War, was signed at Château de Pressac on 20 July 1453. The vineyard, consisting of a single block of vines, is planted on a limestone plateau which extends from Saint Emilion to Belvès de Castillon, 80 metres above the Garonne. It also includes some plots on the clay-limestone slopes. The domaine was purchased in 1997 by Jean-François and Dominique Quenin, who have made substantial investments in both the vineyard and the winery. The property also produces a very consistent second wine, Tour de Pressac.
