Biodynamic. The Hubert family own and farm two estates: Château Peybonhomme-les-Tours in the Côtes de Blaye; and Château La Grolet to the south in the Côtes de Bourg. Both these Right Bank Estates are farmed biodynamically. Quite unlike the monotonous flats of the Medoc, the Côtes de Bourg is a beautiful landscape of rolling hills that are sometimes referred to as the ‘little Switzerland of the Gironde’. This is a Bordeaux appellation with an open and proud, bucolic personality. The gravel-rich terroir makes for a more firmly structured, virile red than this wine’s sibling (Peybonhomme), although there is just as much class and value.
The blend is 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec, cropped at 25 hl/ha (similar to the low yields of some of Bordeaux’s most expensive vins de garage!), from vines now approaching their half century. This wine was crafted without added yeasts in a mixture of concrete and wooden vessels (20%). It was bottled without fining or filtration, and with only a little sulphur (otherwise the wine saw no additions at all).
