Pessac-Léognan Wine

Seeking increased recognition for its high-quality white wines, Pessac-Leognan broke away from the rest of Graves, in Bordeaux, in 1987. Haut-Brion, one of the five First Growths, is located here. The red wines are made mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon. The white wines are made primarily from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Sometimes barrel-aged and often capable of improving for years, they are absolutely worth a look for anyone who is interested in characterful white wine.

  • Chateau Carbonnieux Pessac Leognan Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The 2014 edition of the well-respected Chateau Carbonnieux has grassy, gooseberry elements on the nose with a refreshingly tart, spicy white fruit and garden flower finish (ever eaten a white flower?). Perfect white Graves, in other words. This wine will age further, but is fine now. 91. Read More

  • Château Olivier Rouge 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Punching above the weight of the vintage is the Chateau Olivier 2012...with a wonderfully miscible blend of cedar bark, blackberry jam and white pepper on the nose and a good blackberry and soft oak on the palate. Finish is quite long for the vintage and the wine will mate well with steak. 90. Read More

  • Domaine de Chevalier Rouge 91 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Domaine de Chevalier was reputed to be among the best picks of 2013 - a sub-par vintage - and it does reach to the skies; the scent is of rich, ripe cherries cut on a metal board, and the entry is similarly metallic and rich in red and black fruit with some cedar shank and oak tannin. Finish is long and indicates some aging potential - although ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/110879. It is from the Pessac-Leognan appellation which was created in 1987 out of what had been the nothern part of the Graves appellation and is very close to the southern part of the City of Bordeaux.L'Angelot de Seguin is a second wine at Chateau Seguin ...

  • Malartic Lagraviere Blanc 92 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The 2013 Malartic blanc opens furtively with a scent of musk, lemon grass and crushed gooseberry. From here, it just gets better:on the palate are notions of white pepper, more green fruit (gooseberry again) and a hint of almond bitters on the finish. Deep, dense and viscous without a heavy hand, this wine is superb. 93. Read More

  • Château Olivier Blanc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The Chateau Olivier 2012 has attained a nice pinnacle of maturity with good, deep inviting dandelion wine colour,a musky, spicy Sauvignon Blanc nose and high-end viscous allspice, lemon, grass and musk on the palate... finishing long, thirst-quenching and in a satisfying manner. Excellent value. 91. Read More

  • Chateau Brown Pessac Leognan Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This Pessac-Leognan blanc was well received by critics upon release, and, indeed, the wine is exceptional for the price: the scent is mysteriously Sauvignon Blanc with fresh musk and lemon grass one moment and Semillon the next with fig and spiced apple; colour is quite deep yellow and entry is infused with cake spice, granny smith apple pie an...
