Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan (Grand Cru Classé de Graves)
Taste and food pairing idea
Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
Some of the best wines are described as smoky and have hints of truffle.
Located within the wider Graves appellation in Bordeaux's Left Bank, Pessac-Léognan boasts the region's best soils; the resulting wines have excellent aging potential.
Pessac-Léognan also makes whites from Sauvignon Blanc and Sèmillon.
