The Graves face of the famous Comtes de Neipperg, the beautiful, deep plum/ruby-colored 2011 Clos Marsalette boasts exotic, rich, black cherry, incense, Asian spice, licorice, Christmas fruitcake and baking spice-like notes. There is not a hard edge to be found in this opulent, fleshy, complex, rich Pessac-Leognan. A big-time sleeper of the vintage, this medium-bodied, exuberant wine can be drunk over the next 10-15 years. Neipperg and his team hit a home run with Clos Marsalette in 2011.
Offers a bold, sappy core of kirsch, crushed plum and violet, along with lively anise and blackberry coulis hints. A tarry flash highlights the finish, with fresh acidity rippling underneath. Best from 2016 through 2026.
