Tight pencil lead, this is sleek and punchy, with cassis and bilberry fruit, all grilled up with dried herbs and cedar. Needs to soften over ageing but there is a lot to enjoy here.
The 2020 Lespault-Martillac, which is matured in 35% new oak, has an attractive nose with raspberry, cranberry and wild hedgerow scents. The oak here is neatly assimilated, straightforward and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, lightly spiced on the entry with gentle grip, harmonious and quite persistent towards the finish. This is a delightful Pessac-Léognan with joie-de-vivre.
