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

Oak toast is evident but well balanced by some attractive black cherry, raspberry coulis and charcoal... As ever with Neippereg this is perfectly dressed, with great fruit selection and presentation, ready for a close up. Oak toast is evident but well balanced by some attractive black cherry, raspberry coulis and charcoal mid-palate. A very good wine.
