Pezat Bordeaux Superieur 2011
Made with 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc. Packed with rich, joyous, vibrant rich fruit, caressed and carefully handled - a total class act. Deep ruby. Bright red cherry and raspberry on the perfumed nose and palate. Soft and supple in the mouth and smooth and persistent on the finish.
Produced by Chateau Teyssier (CT) Domaines. The La Plagnolle vineyard has had the ultimate makeover over a duration of 10 years. Vines spaced 9.8 feet apart—in keeping with those that make up Boardeaux's Entre-deux-Mers—have been refashioned to 4.9 feet that is standard in Saint-Emilion. Increased concentration therefore gives lavish richness. With the vineyard being literally a pace away from the vineyards of Saint-Emilion and with vinification conducted in a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, the wine punches well above its appellation.
