Château Lespault-Martillac 2020 Pessac Léognan Blanc
Classic white Pessac with a leaning towards seductive and polished smoked apricot stone fruits. Good stuff.
The 2020 Lespault-Martillac Blanc, owned by Olivier Bernard, has a generous nose with tropical fruit mixed with marzipan and almond shavings, quite seductive even if it does lack some delineation. The palate is well balanced and slightly honeyed in texture, touches of pineapple, peach and apricot with a lightly spiced finish. It will drink early, so don’t feel obliged to cellar for an extended period.
