Description

The regions wines tend to be based on the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grape varieties which are well-suited to the terroir of Pessac-Léognan. The dominant soil type is the same gravel (and sand) which gave Graves its name. The red grape varieties of the appellation covers approximately 1491 hectares (3684 acres).

 

Classic white Bordeaux blends are pale gold in color, perhaps with flashes golden-green, and are characterized by aromas of citrus, grass and hay. Sweet examples, such as those made in Bordeaux's Sauternes, Cerons, Cadillac and Loupiac districts, show a range of honeyed lemon, orange marmalade, dried apricot and even preserved tropical flavors with (depending on age) secondary notes of sweet nuts and treacle.

 

Tasting note: "Continuing to blossom, with no effort, the lemon chiffon, flowers, yellow citrus, flowers, rocks and orange grab your nose and palate. The Sauvignon Blanc dominates with its crisp, fresh, bright, crunchy stylings and waxy lemon accents.”
