Chateau Lespault-Martillac 2010 (4.2/5)
Notes: Just border line between a very modern wine and an authentic Pessac-Leognan. It appears deep ruby with good slow tears. On the nose it's clean offering with med+ intensity all the sensuality of Merlot, yet in an elegant way: plums, black and blue fruits, chocolate, and subtle well hidden oak notes. Some shy developing hint pencil lead and grafite. On the palate is dry, with med+ acidity, medium to medium+ soft and plush tannins, medium alcohol, medium+ body and very good flavour intensity, velvety on the mid-palate. Medium+ finish. Great balance.
