About

Blended from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Pessac-Léognan wines are beautifully balanced with fine-grained structured tannins, and exhibit classic notes of tobacco, cassis, dark cherry, leather and tar, as well as a distinctive minerality.

After blending, the wines are aged for 18 months in oak barrels, 50 to 65% of which are renewed each year. A predominance of Cabernet Sauvignon produces distinguished wines with a substantial capacity to age, that are always much in demand thanks to their suppleness and balance.

I love the fabulous, smoky, earthy, tar, cassis, cigar box and blackberry nose. Medium/full bodied, with a strict, firm personality to the tannins, which is you prefer very old school Bordeaux, you will probably enjoy that part of the wine more than I did. There is ample, earthy, spice filled, dark red fruits in the finish.
