Vineyards in the Press family's 450-acre estate surround one of the Médoc's grand chateaus owned by Bordeaux elite over centuries. The wine from 155 planted acres has been spiced with 12 months in wood, giving a toasty character to the juicy black-currant fruit. It is a structured wine, ripe and with good potential. Drink from 2022.
