...huge, port-like bouquet of chocolatey, cedary, earthy, plummy fruit demonstrates the extraordinary ripeness... Very alcoholic, powerful and rich, but at the same time velvety and sweet...

95Wine Spectator

Extremely tarry and smoky, with anise-scented raisin and other ripe flavors pumping through the chunky texture, big and masculine. Long and compact for such a powerful wine.


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.
