Of all the appellations of the Médoc and Haut-Médoc, Pessac suffered the most in the heat. Alcohol and IPT (a measure of tannin) levels were very high and, while there were some notable exceptions like Carmes Haut Brion and the Dillon stable, far too many wines we encountered lacked fruit or freshness, or both. It's a shame but you will probably find better options for the money elsewhere in the Médoc.

Please note that we can source wines in any format if offered by the Château. Just indicate which size you would like in your wishlist order form or email us with a specific request. Bottling charges do apply so please see our Terms for more details.
