Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux

Top Pessac Leognan Wineries


Although vineyards have been planted in Bordeaux’s sub-region of Pessac-Léognan since the days of ancient Rome, it wasn’t until 1987 that these adjacent villages were tapped from the Graves appellation and given their own. Pessac-Léognan can now proudly claim some of the most highly regarded properties as its own, most notably the respected Premier Cru Château Haut-Brion, the only red wine producer outside the Haut-Médoc that was included in the Classification of 1855, and Château Pape Clément, believed to be the oldest named Bordeaux property.

Pessac-Léognan has enjoyed a history as rich and celebrated as its wines. Claret from the Graves region was a favorite of the British during their three-century rule of Aquitaine that began in the mid-1100s. Two hundred years later, Château Pape Clément, which was founded by Pope Clement V in 1306, became the first international superstar among the Bordeaux châteaux, and developed a following that lasted for centuries to come. Even the noted 17th century politician Samuel Pepys made mention of Château Haut-Brion in his famous diaries.  

Pessac-Léognan rests on the Left Bank of the Garonne River, just south of the actual city of Bordeaux. It includes eight communes – Mérignac, Talence, Pessac, Gradignan, Villenave-d’Ornon, Cadaujac, Léognan and Martillac – and is one of the few Bordeaux sub-regions known to produce both red and white wines. While the north is somewhat crowded due to the development and expansion of Bordeaux proper, much of the south is covered with forests.  Overall, the terroir is composed of sand and high amounts of gravel (hence the name Graves), making it ideal for the cultivation of the hearty Cabernet Sauvignon grape. This is particularly true for the tracts located in the southern section of the city of Bordeaux, where gravel is found in the largest proportions, yielding the finest quality of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes. It is no coincidence that the four key Pessac-Léognan producers – Haut-Brion, La Mission Haut-Brion, Laville Haut-Brion and Pape Clément – are located there. But the magic doesn’t stop there; farther south, several other well-known producers, including Domaine de Chevalier, Haut-Bailly, Malartic-Lagraviere, Larrivet Haut-Brion and de Fieuzal, produce outstanding wines that also rank among Bordeaux’s finest.
