2015 Pessac-Léognan

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Village Pessac-Léognan
ABV 14.6%

45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc. Super nose - it actually has something to say: Purple spicy fruit, all quite taut, not perhaps very grand but as a second wine this is yummy. The fruit stays well on the finish. All quite a dry texure, but there's enough of everything else with it. Rating: 91-92 L&S (Apr 2016)

Lots of currants, spices and fresh herbs follow through to a full body that's tight and silky. Hints of cream and vanilla. Savory and salty. Shows structure and intensity as the second wine of La Mission. Drinking range: 2021 - Rating: 94 James Suckling, (Feb 2018)

This is certainly a ripe second wine - the Merlot proportion was harvested at over 15% - but the quality of the terroir shines through, giving the blend balance, freshness and harmony. Sweet, plush and textured, but with tangy underlying acidity. Drinking range: 2022 - 2030 Rating: 93 Tim Atkin MW, (May 2016)

30% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. Picked from 9 September to 1 October because of stress. Very rich, almost raisiny nose. Lots of (dried) fruity appeal. Pretty tough dried-grape impression on the finish. Not one of the most fluid wines from this stable! A bit of heat on the end. This wine may always be a bit of an anomaly. Drinking range: 2025 - 2033 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Apr 2016)
