Welcome to Pessac-Léognan
Created in 1987, the A.O.C. Pessac-Léognan is the youngest of
Bordeaux’s appellations. Yet it’s developed on an ancient terroir where
the first vines were cultivated more than 2000 years ago and where the
elements that contribute to making this wine world-renowned today,
are hundreds of years old.
The appellation’s rigorous specifications reflect the dynamism, progress
and reputation of our estates in every aspect, from the soils to the vines
to our winemaking techniques. We are proud to uphold the values of
the purest, Bordeaux style, harnessing its ideal of restraint, balance
and authenticity, while always striving to innovate: as one connoisseur
noted, "Pessac-Léognan wines are the true taste of Bordeaux.”
It’s because we are exacting winegrowers, deeply rooted in our terroirs,
passing down our expertise and knowledge from generation to
generation, that we manage to deliver wines of great finesse, delicacy
and seduction, with ever higher levels of quality and precision.
Today, our name, Pessac-Léognan, is synonymous with excellence,
offering elegant wines with every vintage. Wines that are appreciated
for their consistency, their longevity and recognised by connoisseurs,
sommeliers and restaurateurs around the world, for their harmony and
sincerest expression of the fruit: so, it should come as no surprise that
Pessac-Léognan wines are the people of Bordeaux’s favourite.
We hope to welcome you here soon, to our magnificent landscapes of
vineyards, water and forests at the gates of the city: discover and enjoy
this remarkable terroir that lives and breathes the “Bordeaux Spirit”.
It’s less than half an hour from the city center – by car, tram, bike or
boat. I invite you to Pessac-Léognan to experience emotions you’ll
