2010 Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux

Considered as one of the oldest Martillac crus, the Chateau Lespault-Martillac was already used to produce wine during the Roman Empire. The Chateau's vineyard is situated on a beautiful gravelly hilltop overlooking Pessac, and stretches over 8 hectares among which 7 hectares are used to produce red wine. This 2010 Pessac-Leognan is composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. 

The wine exhibits an almost black, very deep colour. The strong nose gives off blackberry, plum and blueberry notes. It is delicately peppery and enhanced by cocoa and almond notes. The wine coats the palate with immediate amplitude and richness. Generosity, sucrosity and smoothness combine. The 2010 Chateau Lespault-Martillac offers firm yet silky and noble tannins. The finish develops with a certain elegance and persistence that represent the terroir by the graphite and gravelly earth notes.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is the first vintage I have tasted from this estate run by Olivier Bernard, also the proprietor of Domaine de Chevalier, and it appears to be a sleeper of the vintage. An opaque ruby/purple color and aromas of graphite, barbecue smoke and black currants are followed by a medium to full-bodied, concentrated wine displaying impressive purity, texture and length. It should drink nicely for 15 or more years.
