Pezat Bordeaux Supérieur 2011


Pezat is a blend of 85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc and is produced by Chateau Teyssier, which is a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru.  The Pezat from the 2011 vintage has a certain elegance and class to it.  It has aromatics of bright blackcurrant, cedar and juicy blackberry.  The palate has some deli meat and leather characters and, with air, redcurrant, plum and blackberry flavours emerge.  This is an elegant, balanced and enjoyable wine that can be approached now or over the next few years and is recommended.  It will benefit from at least 20 minutes in a decanter.

Rating: Good, Abv: 13%, Price: $46, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.cesoirwine.com/, Website: http://www.teyssier.fr, Tasted: 2014
