A red wine from Pessac-Leognan with an elegant finish

Produced in the Pessac-Leognan appellation, Chateau Lespault-Martillac is grown on an 8 hectare vineyard. The vines are on average 40 years old planted on soil that is clay and gravel based. The wine is aged in barrels (1/3 in new barrels) for an average of 14 months. For the first four months, the wine ages on lees. 2016 is a blend of Merlot (65%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (35%).

From January 1st to the 20th, water reserves were high thanks to high precipitation levels. June 4th - June 11th brought beautiful weather and flowering. Summer was well underway from July 1st and was defined by its heat and drought. The drought blocked maturation of the grapes. On September 13th, maturation was accelerated with rain. Harvest was serene and the grapes, all varieties, reached perfect maturity.

Chateau Lespault-Martillac 2016 is a darkred color that is bright and intense. Crisp aromas of ripe fresh red fruits are present. A full-bodied red wine that is fruity and smooth, with a delicious sweetness. A balanced and refined red with a long, elegant, mineral finish.
