Chateau Saint-Marc – Barsac
RELEASED 29th April 2011 – £125/case bottles or £141/case half bottles
Jancis Robinson: 15/20 – Drink 2017-2023. Pale. Lots of acidity. Bit jagged. Residual Sugar 132 g/l, Total Acidity 3.83, Alcohol 13.2%.
Neal Martin: 84-86/100 – This has an almost Riesling-like bouquet with light honey, almond and a touch of hazelnut on the nose.
The palate is fresh on the entry with good acidity, and is quite malic at the moment with notes of pear, almond and a hint of lemon curd. The finish is clean and pure, but a little smudged compared to its peers.
