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.
