Offers a long singed juniper note through the finish. A bit atypical in profile for Pessac, but the focus and energy is enjoyable. – JM

(JS92-93 points) A wine with lots of deep fruit, round and juicy tannins and a savory finish. Very driven by the fruit for the appellation this year.

(WA90-92 points) The 2016 Clos Marsalette, the Pessac-Léognan property of Comte Stephan von Neipperg, is a blend of 45% Merlot, 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc that was picked between 4-18 October and matured in 35% new oak. It has a clean and precise bouquet with blackberry and bilberry scents, a fine undercurrent of minerals. I like the elegance on display here. The palate is medium-bodied with mulberry and blackberry on the entry, a touch of black olive and quite a saline second half that is both fresh and detailed. This should drink well over the next decade. It's just a delicious wine--no more, no less. - Neal Martin
