Futures 2015: Appellation Pessac Leognan

The sub region of Graves, Pessac Leognan, includes all of the chateau in the Grand Cru Classe de Graves classification, including the First Growth Chateau Haut Brion. The traditional varietals grown in the gravel soils of Graves are cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot, malbec, sauvignon blanc, and semillon. 1,300 hectares are devoted to red wines, and 265 hectares to white wine production.
Graves produces reds that are round and well-balanced with notes of ripe red fruit, offset by firm tannins. They often develop a slight smoky note with age. A white wine from Graves is clean and refreshing, with nuanced richness on the palate.

Pessac Leognan in 2015:

Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: Spring in Bordeaux was unusually mild in 2015. The months of May, June and July were subsequently warm and dry, allowing the vines to develop rapidly. Early August the grapes achieved veraison evenly and consistently. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, allowing the grapes to build aromatic complexity and power before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be a long-lived one.
