The opinion of the wine taster
This Pessac-Léognam does credit to its designation. It was vinified in the purest tradition of Bordeaux by the team of the winery Pape Clément, his famous neighbour (another propriety of Bernard Magrez). Why the Serenity? Because the winemakers have to be patient and temperate to best express these vineyards.…
A typical blending of this designation. The merlot gives the suppleness, whereas the cabernet sauvignon will bring structure and a tannic force that increase the keeping potential. The aromas of this grape variety get more intense when tasted after 18 month of aging in oak barrels.
A very nice colour with violet reflections.
The nose is sourranded by strong notes of red fruits, in particularly we find the raspberry and blackcurrant, but also we feel intense flavours of red pepper, typical of cabernet sauvignon.
This full bodied wine is rich and woody with a remarkable density.
To serve between 14°C and 16°C. To decant 30 minutes before servinf. Keeping time: until 2020.

Pessac-Léognan is the renowned designation of the region of Graves, to the south of Bordeaux. His soil made of clays, limestone and gravels give to the Pessac-Léognam his distinctive taste. The soil stores sunlights during the day and free it during the night and it does a remarkable natural draining. These vineyards are closed to the well-known Château Pape Clément, Grand Cru Classé de Graves.
