La Sérénité 2009 - Pessac-Léognan

Out of stock

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

The terroir

Pessac-Léognan is the renowned designation of the region of Graves, to the south of Bordeaux. Its soil made of clays, limestone and gravels gives its distinctive taste to the Pessac-Léognam. The soil stores sunlights during the day and free them 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.

lecepage The grape variety

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.

lemillesime The vintage

“The best vintage that I have ever tasted after 1982” – Robert Parker. The 2009 was an exceptional year in Bordeaux. The nice density of the Sérénité 2009 was voted 91-93 out of 100 by the Robert Parker wine guide and 18/20 by the Swiss critic René Gabriel.
