"While this has some lean tannins, the wine offers ripe red fruit and berry character to balance.
It’s structured, still young and getting its tannins together.
Drink this fresh, structured and juicy wine from 2018."
"This wine has all the right elements with structure, tannins and ripe berry fruits.
It's full of blackberry and plum flavors that are underlined with a firm structure and layers of toast.
Drink from 2019."
"This wine is rich, showing toast as well as apricot and peach flowers.
It’s full-blown, right up front with fruitiness and rounded structure.
"This smooth Sauvignon Blanc-dominated wine is soft, lightly spicy and ready to drink.
It is ripe with only light acidity. Lemon and crisp apples show strongly at the end."
"A well positioned Pessac-Léognan Red 2007, meaty, powerful, delicate and rich, with very characteristic aromas of cherry and humus, a wine of distinction, of excellent development (14,50 €).
2006, complex nose dominated by cherry and leather, a structured wine, very good for keeping.
Beautiful 2005, both in color and structure with a subtle nose. It has characteristic notes and very persistent gooseberry, smoky and spicy flavors with dense and ripe tannins. A wine that gives full flavour in the mouth, excellent for keeping.
Very nice white Pessac-Leognan cuvée Alexandre 2008, with great finesse, a powerful nose, that combines richness with aromatic sweetness, that has a good smell of hazelnut and peach in the end (16.50 €). Do not hesitate."
"And to think that not long ago vegetables and flowers were cultivated here...
It's Jean-Pierre Leymarie, at the head of this family estate since 1983, who decided to commence wine-growing activities.
This 2008 shows itself by its power, finesse and the complexity of the nose which is marked by notes of minerals, floral, fruity (citrus), and toast. The charm of its bouquet is found in a structured palate, bold and lively at the same time, that blooms with exuberance and persistence of flavours of yellow fruit and lychee, enhanced by touches of antler.
One is tempted to open the bottle immediately. Yet it would be a shame not to wait another two or three years."
"A success with this red 2006 Pessac-Léognan, full bodied and tannic, complex nose dominated by cherry and leather, round-bodied wine that is well structured, still very young, but very good for keeping.
Beautiful 2005, both in color and structure with a subtle nose. It has characteristic notes and very persistent gooseberry, smoky and spicy flavors with dense and ripe tannins.
The 2004, with mainly fresh fruit and humus, with tight tannins and mellow at the same time, is a success, intense color, persistant nose, very well balanced on the palate, full bodied and dense.
Very nice white Pessac-Leognan cuvée Alexandre 2008, combining floral with fruity, with great relief at the nose and palate, a wine to open with a grilled salmon. Therefore no hesitation."
"The passage from vegetable growing took twenty years, but the conversion is successful, as evidenced by this 2006 that shows its youth by its deep garnet colour. Elegant in its aromas (red fruits, grilled, leather and spices), round and fat, ending on a peppery note, this Pessac could be appreciated in two or three years with a fine steak."
"A pale gold color advantageously dresses this wine that is both floral and smoky in the nose, a mouth that opens onto a beautiful flexibility and ends with a pleasant fruity sensation."
