Fantastic aromas of papaya, lemons, and pears with hints of cream. Full body, very layered and intense. Superb flavors and intensity.

...with toasted macadamia nut, butter and creamed white peach aromas and flavors leading the way, followed by warm shortbread, mirabelle plum and lemon curd notes that stretch through the lengthy finish.

The palate is well balanced with lime and citrus peel on the entry, hints of toffee apple emerging towards the finish...

France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan

Pessac-Léognan was created in 1987 from the northern part of the left bank Graves appellation. Before then it was simply part of Graves, or sometimes it was called Haut-Graves. Unlike many other Bordeaux appellations, Pessac-Léognan is known for both red and dry white wines, although its reds are more famous. The appellation includes ten communes and the area’s most important châteaux, including Château Haut-Brion, the only non-Médoc estate included in the 1855 Bordeaux classification. There are 2,964 acres of vineyards in Pessac-Léognan and 16 classified growth estates. The main red grapes grown are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, along with a small amount of Cabernet Franc. White grapes grown are Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with a little Muscadelle. Pessac-Léognan is considered to have the best terroir of the greater Graves region.
