RATINGS

92Robert M. Parker Jr.

...notes of smoked herbs, blue and black fruits, creosote and camphor, the wine is better than most Pape Clements in the 1970s and 1980s...

87-90Vinous / IWC

... Very pure aromas of cassis, violet and smoke. Vibrant and fresh, with sweet flavors of black cherry, minerals and herbs... Very well done...long, smooth, smoky tobacco leaf finish...

REGION

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.
