- Clos Marsalette Pessac - Leognan Rouge 2012 Product #31761 (In Stock)
A young estate (created 2002) by the owner of the great St. Emilion estates La Gaffeliere and La Mondotte, Clos Marsalette has quickly established itself as a leader on the gravely soils of Pessec-Leognan. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc aged 18 months in 50% new French oak.
“From the empire of the Neippergs, this brilliant 2012 Clos Marsalette has a gorgeous nose of Christmas fruitcake, cedar wood, smoked herbs, blackcurrants and jammy cherries. It is medium to full-bodied, silky smooth, very sexy, complex and a total hedonistic, intellectual turn-on. The complexity and nuances that the Neipperg winemaking team is able to get in all of its wines is amazing. This is a beauty and a major sleeper of the vintage.”Wine Advocate 92 points
