Pessac-Leognan & Graves

Pessac-Leognan & Graves

South of the city of Bordeaux, the region of Graves runs along the western bank of the Garonne River, through some of Bordeaux's most famous vineyards. The wines of Graves range from the esteemed red blends and powerful crisp whites of Pessac-Leognan to the unctuous celebrated sweet wines of Sauternes. The birthplace of Bordeaux's fine red wines, Graves comes with a reputation stretching back as far as the 13th century. The Graves AOC title can be used for both red and white wines while Graves Superieurs, Cerons, Barsac and Sauternes are all appellations that specialise in sweet wines. Defying its long history, Pessac-Leognan was only split out and given its individual appellation title in 1987, due to the consistently high quality of its wines. Its red wines, including those of first growth Chateau Haut-Brion, are some of the most highly prized in Bordeaux, while the white wines, made from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon can be aged for many years and are complex, flavoursome and delicious.

    Chateau Clos Marsalette Pessac Leognan

    Chateau Clos Marsalette

    Chateau Clos Marsalette Pessac Leognan

    It has a clean and precise bouquet with blackberry and bilberry scents, a fine undercurrent of minerals. I like the elegance on display here. The palate is medium-bodied with mulberry and blackberry on the entry, a touch of black olive and quite a saline second half that is both fresh and detailed. This should drink well over the next decade. It's just a delicious wine--no more, no less. Drink 2020-2030. 90-92 points. Neal Martin, erobertparker.com, April 2017

    Chateau Lespault-Martillac

    Chateau Lespault-Martillac, Pessac-Leognan

    Fleshy and polished, with a rounded edge to the plum, boysenberry and blackberry compote flavors, carrying through the anise-framed finish. A background hint of roasted apple wood lends just enough contrast. Drink now through 2018. Wine Spectator

    Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Leognan

    Domaine de Chevalier

    Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Leognan

    This has a dark, almost brooding persona, with plum, black currant and black cherry fruit, inlaid with an ample warm road tar note. Shows lots of smoldering tobacco on the finish. Slightly rustic tannins pinch just a bit at the end, but otherwise this is a gutsy and solid effort. Best from 2017 through 2022. 90 points. James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, March 2016

    Chateau Malartic Lagraviere, Pessac-Leognan

    Chateau Malartic Lagraviere

    Chateau Malartic Lagraviere, Pessac-Leognan

    It has a very composed and pure bouquet with blackberry, mint and just a touch of blueberry, the new oak neatly integrated and menthol developing with time. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, fine structure and a keen line of acidity; this is a pixelated Pessac-Léognan that exudes style and panache. There is an effortless nature to this wine and it feels so persistent in the mouth that you cannot wait to take another sip. This is (another) impressive release from the bonny Bonnie family and do not be surprised if it eventually surpasses the outstanding 2015. Drink 2023-2045. 94-96 points.

    Chateau Malartic Lagraviere

    Chateau Malartic Lagraviere, Pessac-Leognan

    Gorgeously pure blueberry and blackberry fruit along with some notes of cassis, charcoal and licorice jump from the glass of this inky purple wine. An absolutely fabulous success for Malartic Lagravière, this full-bodied wine has sweet tannin, and is complex and long. Drink it over the next 25 years. Bravo! 95 points.

    Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Leognan

    Domaine de Chevalier

    Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Leognan

    This is a perfumed bouquet that unfolds beautifully in the glass with blackberry, cedar, smoke and a light marine influence, not unlike Japanese nori. The palate is medium-bodied with such fine tannins that it bought to mind Burgundy rather than Bordeaux. There is a grainy texture here, quite saline in the mouth with an entrancing sense of symmetry, very classic but not austere on the finish, with a long and saline aftertaste. Drink 2025-2060. 94-96 points. Neal Martin, erobertparker.com, April 2017.

    Chateau Picque Caillou

    Chateau Picque Caillou, Pessac-Leognan

    From a tasting by Picque Caillou's Jean-Claude Berrouet in 2011. Lively, bright colour with smoky toasted aromas. There is a silky smooth attack with lovely, very soft, well-coated, non-aggressive tannins and a lingering light finish. Good extraction of fruit.

    Ch. Pape Clement Rouge Pessac Leognan

    This is phenomenal with a density and finesse that are hard to remember for this wine. Full-bodied, tight and polished. Seamless texture and salty undertones. Goes on for minutes. Truly great. 97-98 points. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, April 2017.

  • Chateau La Mission Haut Brion, Pessac-Leognan

    It has a clean and precise, quite understated bouquet with fine mineralité, cold stone aromas infusing the black fruit. This has incredible precision... The palate is medium-bodied with supple and lithe tannin. I appreciate the line of acidity here, the smoothness and harmony that takes your breath away. Drink 2026-2070. 98-100 points. Neal Martin, erobertparker.com, April 2017. Glowing deep crimson. Very intense and ripe. Snazzy and spicy. Polished and racy. Very firm and lots of ripe tannins – very much à La Mission. Super-sophisticated. Inky and fresh and so ripe and confident. A dry style but great. Drink 2027-2050. 18.5++/20 points. Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com, April 2017. The texture to this is very beautiful with chewy yet very polished tannins. Full-bodied, tight and mouth-filling. Starts very slowly and then takes off. Love the energy in this. 96-97 points. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, April 2017.
