Pessac Léognan, Graves

Château La Tour Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

A very enjoyable 21 year old, Left Bank Bordeaux, from Pessac Léognan.

Showing black fruits with earth, wet leaves, herbs, oak, spices, chocolates, pencil lead, black pepper, forest floor and tobacco leaf.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice legs.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

A great quality wine with good complexity and mouthfeel. I had it blind, and called it right. Missed the vintage by 2 years 😊

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins and structure (90 minutes).

Very enjoyable now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 15 years.

13% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

PnP. Average at best. Tight nose. More bite than expected. More fruit than typical in a Bordeaux. Not bad, but better wines at this price point. — 6 days ago

9.4

This is an exceptional wine - Bordeaux of the highest order - magnificent deep purple color with truly extraordinary nose - it took a while to open but when it did - the taste was thrilling with all the fruit forward caveats and yet the tannins were just right - this is a pony that is still maturing to become a full grown stallion someday - maybe ten years at least — 4 days ago

Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend 2016

So... I've rated this before. Consistent with previous, maybe some tangerine with the peach. Pairing nicely with swordfish.

Château de Fieuzal

Grand Vin De Graves Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Very nice but not quite resolved. Lots of classic dark fruit, leather, etc. But, it doesn’t quite come together on the finish - it’s a bit disjointed. This was after a 3 hr decant. Will wait a couple years before another. — 12 days ago

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Wow Bordeaux at it finest the nose is popping with red fruit florals. The body and mouth feel is a typical of Bordeaux. It tingles every taste bud in your mouth. It keeps giving even when you think it should be over. As it’s young, we decanted for an hour. Rose blossoms and cherries led to smooth tannins. God i loved this — 2 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1966

Tawny and dark. Almost opaque. Notes of cola, smoked meat, earth and with air some sweet fruit emerges. Briary. Short finish. This showed well and held steady over 5 hours. Nice showing. — 7 days ago

La Reserve de Malartic

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 This wine is very accessible and a great joy to drink. Cedar in smell, also laurel and pencil shaving. Very civilized. No tannins whatsoever, but red fruit. Velvety structure. Well made. With this kind of wines it is easy to let others ripen in the cellar. — 19 days ago
