Pessac Léognan, Graves

Château Larrivet Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend

65%CS, 20%M & 15%CF. A lot of oak, smoke, incense, very floral and earthy. Red and blackfruit (blackberries, blackcurrant), some green notes also. Very dark red with firm structure, needs time. Second day better integrated. 91+ — 3 days ago

One of the most disappointing first growths I’ve had. Not sure if the 11s need more time, or if they’ll just never come around. Atypically lean vintage of this with a fairly predictable and uninspired aromatic profile. — 10 days ago

Château Haut-Bergey

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Perfectly mature. Soft pruney fruit, gingerbread spice, mellow chocolatey tannines. Dashes of oak, mocha and smoke, as well. Not overly complex, nor complicated. A fun wine.
Very good QPR.

Domaine de Chevalier

Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend 2012

Mid yellow in colour. An interesting marine type note which became oxidative with time. Notes of citrus and white peach, a little broad. A creamy texture from part oak maturation. 76% Sauvignon Blanc 24% Semillon. Fermented in barrel on lees for 18 months. 35% new barrels. — 13 days ago

Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan 2016

I guess it doesn’t matter what champagne I am drinking, a good red always wins. This was an elegant, well balanced left bank Bordeaux with very fine grained, polished tannins fully integrated with the dark earthy fruit. My kinda wine. — 17 days ago

Château de Fieuzal

Grand Cru Classé de Graves Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

2019 vintage. A blend of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot according to the official website (whereas most journalists state 60% Cabernet Sauvignon). A mix of red and black fruit, typical Pessac-Léognan spiciness, with the Petit Verdot delivering violet notes. It has a very fresh mouthfeel with juicy fruit and refined tannins, combined with an attractive salinity and a long spicy finish. Very good indeed. — 17 days ago
