Region Pessac-Leognan

Though wine has been made in Pessac-Léognan since ancient Roman times, it was only in 1987 that the neighboring villages of Pessac and Léognan were singled out from the surrounding Graves region and given their own appellation. The designation acknowledges that Pessac-Léognan is home to the most acclaimed properties of Bordeaux’s Graves region, such as the Premier Cru Château Haut-Brion. The vineyards of Pessac-Léognan, just south of the city of Bordeaux, are crowded by suburban sprawl. About 3,000 acres are dedicated mostly to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grown for red wines, with a small portion devoted to Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and other grapes for white wines. Pessac-Léognan red wines are elegant and concentrated, with medium to full body. They offer distinct aromas and flavors of mineral and earth, and can have lush fruit or smoky tobacco character.

Pessac-Léognan white wines are dry, unlike the famous sweet white wines from nearby Sauternes. They are generally crisp and minerally with citrus notes, often with rich character from oak aging and capable of improving with additional age.

Winery DOMAINE DE CHEVALIER

Domaine de Chevalier is a Grand Cru Classé de Graves producer of top tier red and white wines in Bordeaux. It is considered one of the most respected properties in Graves, after Chateau Haut-Brion and Chateau Mission Haut-Brion. Now owned by the Bernard family, the domaine is situated within the Pessac-Léognan appellation, and consists of 45 ha of vines of which 80% is planted to red varieties. Approximately three-quarters of the vineyard has been replanted or newly planted since the mid-eighties. While much attention has been given to the white wines, the reds have gained equal recognition since the mid-nineties. A second wine called L’Esprit de Chevalier is also produced.
