Château d'Eyran 2011 - Pessac-Léognan, Bordeaux

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

I am in love with this Pessac- Léognan, typical of the appellation, and I think it will charm you. The aging in oak barrels gave the wine sophisticated smells of cocoa, coffee and vanilla. In the mouth, I really enjoyed its silky tannins and the fruity aromas that recall the presence of merlot and petit verdot in the blend. You’ll enjoy this wine on beef pieces cooked rare. 

 

Terroir

Pessac-Léognan is known to be the best part of a bigger appellation in Bordeaux called “Graves”. It comes from ancient French and means pebbles. Indeed, for millenniums, the Garonne River has been bringing all those pebbles therefore creating one of the best terroir in the world. Indeed, the “graves” challenge the vine to find its nutrients, which makes it stronger, and reflects the heat from the sun to the grapes.

lecepage Grape variety

The combination of cabernet sauvignon and merlot is very usual in Bordeaux. The strong structure and the tannins of the cabernet sauvignon make a wonderful couple with the fruits and the softness of the merlot. The blend also includes a little of petit verdot, an historical variety in Bordeaux, that gives a deep colour and even more tannins.

lemillesime Vintage

The 2011 vintage was not spared by the weather. Blame it on several heat waves that struck during the spring and summer temperatures below seasonal averages along with too much rain. Nonetheless, the winemakers at Château d’Eyran worked day and night to protect the vines and they really did a great job: their wine is a great success! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Château d’Eyran became the property of the de Seze family in 1796. And more than two centuries later, they still run the vineyard! And apparently, there centuries old skills are really appreciated considering the success of the Château d’Eyran in Pessac-Leognan. The wines are aged in oak barrels, providing harmonious woody flavours and aromas.
