Pessac-Léognan: “Bordeaux’s Bastion of Value”

Arrives August 2012

With Bordeaux prices climbing seemingly into the stratosphere for en primeur items that aren’t even here or ready to drink yet, why not take advantage of this terrific line-up of ready-to-go, value-priced gems from Pessac-Léognan? Formerly known as Graves, this appellation was decreed in 1987 to more clearly define the quality of the region’s terroir. The 1986 vintage was the first to be released in conjunction with the new AOC name.
The quality/price quotient represented by the wine in this missive is superb! If you want names and star-power, the blast encompasses some of the best and the brightest currently in the game: Anne and Olivier Bernard, Daniel and Florence Cathiard along with Veronique Sanders and Phillipe Gervoson. Pessac has always delivered “bang-for-the-buck” and this brilliant selection proves the point.
These are all coming direct from Bordeaux so the provenance is great! Bordeaux-lovers take notice: these offerings are specifically geared for those who actually drink and enjoy traditionally produced, superbly aged claret. Because at the end of the day, you drink what’s in the bottle, not what’s on the bottle. Don’t miss out on any of these one-time-only selections.

Spectrum Wine's Pick
Château Larrivet Haut-Brion 2000

Score: 90RP

“The deep ruby/purple-colored 2000's rich, complex perfume displays aromas of cedar, black cherry liqueur, melted licorice, scorched earth, tobacco, and new oak. The wine is rich, firm, tannic, concentrated, and medium to full-bodied with admirable sweetness of fruit. It is a beautiful effort that should be drinkable between 2007-2020.”
