  • 2012 Chateau Lespault-Martillac
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href=''>2012 Chateau Lespault-Martillac </a></b></font><br>This property, which is owned by Domaine de Chevalier, has produced a wine that is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a very supple-textured, medium to full-bodied wine, with an impressively saturated ruby/purple color. The graphite, barbecue smoke, blackcurrants and black cherries make for an intriguing and fascinating medium to full-bodied wine with plenty of velvety texture. This is lush, plump, very complex and promising. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. <br> Rating: 90  <a href= >Estimated Cost: $18-$31</a>
