All Pessac-Léognan reds 2016

The best reds have the essence of Bordeaux quality that the appellation of Pessac-Léognan delivers so brilliantly as a result of its balance between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, coupled with its structure and powerful ageing ability.

At its best, this appellation has perhaps taken the place of St-Emilion in terms of delivering a sexier take on Bordeaux than the Médoc without overdoing it, and in 2016 the wines fully capture this vibrancy of the vintage.

The below wines are some of the top scoring Pessac-Léognan 2016 reds – find all Pessac-Léognan reds 2016 here.
