Winemaker Notes

Red garnet color with purple tints, the 2014 Chateau de Landiras is engaging on the nose with aromas of kirsch, blackcurrant, currant and spices. On the palate, the fruit dominates, carried by a beautiful freshness. The wine is clean and balanced with tight tannins. A crisp, fresh style.

Pairs well with red or white meat dishes, charcuterie platter, hard cheeses

Blend: 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon

Great intensity of classic Bordeaux fruit on the nose, cassis, dark cherries and liquorice. The rich round palate is bursting with fresh blackberry and blackcurrant, lovely silky tannins great length all in perfect harmony.

An impressive Graves, the well-built wine with beautiful aromas and flavors, the sophisticated 2014 Château Landiras serves up red fruits, with a slight floral note. The wine satiny palate pairs well with lightly seasoned roast chicken. (Tasted: October 11, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Chateau de Landiras, Graves, Bordeaux, France
Image of winery

The Chateau de Landiras is at the heart of the legacy of Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac, foundress of "La Compagnie de Notre-Dame" in 1607. This religious congregation was the first in the history of France to provide free access to education for young ladies. It still holds this role today through hundreds of schools in 27 countries around the world.

Since 2007, a new dynamic is bringing the estate back to life. First, the restructuring of the vineyard has allowed the Chateau de Landiras to be part of some the finest wines in the Graves appellation. Then, a strong effort has been made to enhance the historical heritage of the property and make it accessible to visitors.

Today, the Chateau de Landiras is run by estate owner and architect Michel Pelissie, with the assistance of director Francois Puerta. Michel is passionate about leading the estate with the project of combining architecture and winemaking, while being surrounded by people who share his vision: to give a new life to the Chateau and produce quality wines.

Graves is a large region, extending 30 miles southeast of the city of Bordeaux, along the left bank of the Garonne River. It is the only Bordeaux appellation famous for both its red and white wines, though red producing vineyards cover well over three times as much area as the whites.

In the late 1980s, the French created the separate appellation of Pessac-Léognan within the northern confines of Graves. It includes all of its most famous properties, and the southern suburbs of the city Bordeaux itself.

In French "graves" is a term used to indicate gravelly soils.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde River, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux lean towards a highly structured and earthy style whereas New World areas (as in the ones named above) tend to produce bold and fruit-forward blends. Either way, Bordeaux red blends generally have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties in specified percentages, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include equal amounts of Cabernet Franc and Malbec, for example. Occassionally a winemaker might add a small percentage of a non-Bordeaux variety, such as Syrah or Petite Sirah for a desired result.
