The Pessac-Léognan AOC has an ancient terroir dating back to the Middle Ages. Situated on the southern and south-western outskirts of Bordeaux, it includes all the Graves grands crus classés, including the legendary Château Haut-Brion, the oldest wine estate in the region.

Pairings : This wine goes well with red and white meats, such as lamb, guinea fowl or pheasant.

Tasting notes : AOC Pessac-Léognan has a lovely garnet-red colour. On the nose, red fruit with floral and smoky notes. The palate is supple, charming and light, with a touch of wood.

Vinification and vineyard : 
Location : the plots are located on the southern, south-western edge of the Bordeaux vineyards, more precisely in the Graves wine-growing region.
Climate : temperate, Aquitaine oceanic, warm enough to allow vines to be grown even on flat ground. Temperatures are mild in winter and relatively hot in summer. Plenty of sunshine ensures that the grapes reach optimum ripeness.
Soil : the soil is mainly gravel.
Vinification and ageing: the grapes are harvested by hand, using open crates to allow water and moisture to pass through. The grapes are then sorted on a sorting table.

Appellation : AOC Pessac-Léognan is a recent appellation, dating back to 1987. Its terroir is very old, dating back to the Middle Ages. Situated on the southern and south-western outskirts of Bordeaux, it includes all the Graves grands crus classés, including the legendary Château Haut-Brion, the oldest wine estate in the region. Domaine du Chêne-Vert owes its name to the De Calvimont family, Barons of Chêne-Vert and members of the Bordeaux Parliament. It produces very good Graves wines.
