In the second part of the article about the Primeurs 2021 week in Bordeaux I publish my tasting notes and my impression on the young wines 2021 of Pessac-Léognan.
This little-known region of southwestern France, at the foothills of the Pyrenees, coincides geographically with Madiran, famous for its powerful wines. Pacherenc du Vic Bilh produces harmonious sweet wines and full-bodied and ripe dry wines with crispy acidity.
In this qrticle I will speak about a small family estate Château Fombrauge, which produces red wines under the appellation Saint Emilion Grand Cru and very original white wines from Chardonnay, Colombard and Roussanne instead of traditional for Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillion and Muscadelle.
Many wine connoisseurs, having acquired basic tasting skills and knowledge, wish to try something unusual, whether it be a rare variety or a unknown region. And some are looking for special drinks with history. One example of such wines are the wines of the French Foreign Legion.
