Pessac Leognan is a wine appellation in the Bordeaux region of France on the left bank of the Gironde that was elevated to AOC status in September 1987. Both still white and red wines are permitted here.
White wines are made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle. Red wines are made from Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cot (Malbec), Petit Verdot and Carmenere with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon being the main grapes preferred by growers here.
The wines are quite elegant with very good structure.
