Bordeaux Futures

... a blend of 41% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Merlot ... matured in 65% new oak, 30% one year old and 5% in amphora. It has a very pure, very attractive bouquet with ample blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry and fresh fig aromas, a little more extravagant than some other Pessac-Léognan 2016s, yet it maintains impressive control and focus. It develops more pressed flower aromas with time. The palate is medium-bodied with tannins that gently grip the mouth, tertiary notes on the entry, fine acidity vis-à-vis the fruit, then a slight tarriness towards the broody black fruit on the saline, marine-influenced finish. It is an intriguing take on the vintage, classic in style like many others, detailed with impressive complexity ... it will require a decade in bottle to show what it can do. It is a new benchmark for this estate with big ambitions ... Drink Date: 2026-2050 Score - 95-97. (Neal Martin, robertparker.com)
