1997 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Leognan Bordeaux Rouge

Here's a ridiculous value in ready-to-drink Bordeaux. Time in the bottle helps integrate flavor compounds and soften tanning to develop greater complexity. This was really delicious to begin with and has only gotten better. Load up.

Composed on average of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, the red wines of Pessac-Léognan make a good compromise between marked tannins and the greediness of the fruit. We thus find red and ripe fruits, and empyreumatic notes. The bouquet is often fruity, with currant and other red and black fruits to which are added smoked or roasted notes. The wines have a dense but lighter robe than the medoc. The hue is ruby ​​with a touch ranging from purple to brick depending on the evolution.
