2eme Cru Classé Barsac

The de Pontacs' have produced another stunning wine in 2010. Myrat has been punching above its weight since their spectacular 2003 vintage and this is their finest wine ever produced. It is extraordinarily concentrated with an almost exotic tropical fruit explosion on the palate but with a scintillating freshness derived from its high acidity - a particular characteristic of the best Barsacs this year, due to the high content of chalk in the appellation's soils. Finishes on a full-blown apricot and honey creaminess with a hint of nutmeg. 14% alc. and 150g/l residual sugar . [Drink: 2016-2025] CCNP

Wonderful wine in 2011 showing tremendous balance between honeyed, peachy intensity and fresh vibrant acidity. In spite of the wine's power it shows considerable elegance. Will drink well early but also reward keeping for 5 to 10 years. Drink 2013 to 2022. JRE
