Pessac Léognan, Graves

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Cru Classe des Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Very dark Ruby - amazingly dark for the age - maybe because of the hot 2003 vintage. Gorgeous nose, red and black currant, dusty, cedar - like an antique shop Barb said. Medium tannins. Medium plus length and persistence. Really enjoyed this, particularly considering the vintage. You could leave this for a few more years if you wish but I was more than happy to drink this now. — 8 days ago

Chateau Bahans Haut-Brion

Pessac-Leognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

This vintage has aged better than the critics expected. An old world earthy nose. A relatively straight forward wine with a long yet non complex finish. Low alcohol level (I am guessing low half of 11%) makes for an approachable and enjoyable wine. Wine kept calling me back to pour another glass. — 11 days ago

Château Haut-Bailly

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

This wine completes my ‘01 - ‘04 vertical and was the best of the four! Not sure what wine others were drinking but this rocked!

45+ minute decant. Dark red color with a brownish rim. Nose had massive cedar and dark cherries. Medium plus depth filled with wood, graphite, licorice, and cherries. Refined and very elegant texture. Close to prime drinking age, but has some years left. Medium finish.

Miss London and these great Bordeaux. I need to reduce the Napa Cab in my cellar more in favor of these.

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

15’ Château Pepe Clement. Should’ve decanted this for sometime. 15 needs a few more years in bottle. That being said… Petro soon opens up to this magnificent bottling. Orange blossom, pineapple, Honeysuckle. Zesty acidity. All spring out of the glass. — 23 days ago
