PESSAC LEOGNAN & GRAVES CHÂTEAUX TOURS

A tour of the Graves wine-making estates and the most beautiful wine trails of Bordeaux wine.

Description of the visit

The discovery of the vineyards and châteaux of Pessac Léognan and the Graves is an immersion in the discovery of the first wine-producing terroirs of Gironde but also in their struggle to exist and survive. A fight against the nibbling of urbanisation. An affirmation of terroir that perfectly defines the notion of château. A place that resists the ephemeral and the superficial. It is also a plunge into the history that still defines our present. We will approach the terroir of Pessac Léognan after a 15-minute journey through the countryside of southern Bordeaux. The terroir is made up of historic whites and reds described as the quintessential Bordeaux by their sweetness. A terroir steeped in history and mystery. From the Romans to the Templars, from Pape Clement 5 to Eleanor of Aquitaine, you can feel the history of the vines and the wine with all your senses. The vibrations are felt in each glass of wine. We will be welcomed at Château Léognan, Carmes Haut Brion, …for a tasting rich in discoveries, then we will eat along the way and finally we will be able to complete this gallery of unforgettable memories by shopping in the wine shops of Pape Clément and Léognan. We will be back in the centre of Bordeaux by 3pm.

Château 1

Château Pape Clément

Pape Clément

A must-see out of all the Bordeaux châteaux, Pape Clément symbolizes audacity and opening up new exquisite palates.  The place where everything began.

Château 2

Domaine La Louvière

La Louvière

Overlooking centuries of wisdom, the Château la Louvière has a wild aroma originating from the mist of time. Its wine is just like the château – untamable, long, and fine.

Château 3

The vines of La Solitude

La Solitude

Contemplation and modernity. Incompatible? Apparently not. Here, the religious community invested in the destiny of its land to create this sublime château and wine.

Château 4

Domaine Olivier

Olivier

A château which unifies indulgence and a refined touch of “old France,” where you don’t find just the sum of an instant product, but mores the fruit of effort and consideration.  This could define the château Olivier and its wine.
