Futures 2015: Appellation Pessac-Léognan

Pessac-Léognan is a sub-AOC of the Graves region. It includes all of the chateaux in the Grand Cru Classé de Graves classification, including Chateau Haut-Brion. Haut-Brion was the only estate outside of the Médoc to be classified as a Premier Grand Cru in the 1855 classification. 1,300 hectares are devoted to red wines, and 265 hectares to white wine production. A range of varietals grow in the gravel soils of Graves, including cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot, malbec, sauvignon blanc, and sémillon.

The red wines of Graves are known for being round and well-balanced with ripe red fruit notes, offset by strong 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.

2015 in Pessac-Léognan:

Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: 2015 in Bordeaux started with an unusually mild spring. May, June and July subsequently were warm and dry, allowing the vines to grow rapidly. An even and consistent véraison occurred in early August. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, helping build aromatic complexity and power in the grapes before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be one for the ages.
