Pessac-Léognan & Graves 2020 in bottle: overview plus top-scoring wines

A vintage that favoured red wines more than white in 2020 delivering pure, rich, elegant and concentrated reds with plenty of character and the best whites with structure and intensity. Also home to a 100-point wine in 2020.

Complicated weather conditions tested winemakers in the vineyards and cellars in Pessac and Graves in 2020 with a mainly dry and warm growing season saved by crucial rains in August.

The vintage produced structured, supple and generous red wines by producers who picked at the right time and exhibited a light touch in the winery. The best white wines have ripe, exotic fruit touches balanced by freshness and crisp acidity.
