Classified Chateau of

Pessac Commune
{Graves}

(2)

Red Only

Haut Brion
(second wine Le Clarte de Haut Brion)

Pape Clement
(second wine Le Clementine)

Notes:
- Pessac-Leognan was introduced as an AOP in 1987
- it covers the 10 best communes in Graves.
- Producers can use Carmenere here.
- You will pay a premium for proucers of the Pessac commune of this appellation.
- Best of the Graves Cru Classes are here.

Makes sense:
1) because Pessac is the main name, so the most important chateaux are here
2) it is in the north - where the best dry wines are

==========

Note:
In thoery LMHB is classified for Rd Only, however they did absorb the holdings of Laville Haut Brion in 2008(?), which was a classified white wine.  Does this mean the new white from LMHB should be considered classified?  I have no idea...
