Biodynamic. Half bottle. This classic estate wine is a blend of 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec. The fruit was grown on Peybonhomme’s limestone and clay soils of the Premières Côtes de Blaye (on the right bank, overlooking the picturesque Gironde estuary). The wine fermented with indigenous yeasts and then matured mostly in concrete, with 10% fermented and aged in two- to three-year-old oak. The wine was bottled unfiltered.
From a year of great balance—and one that had Bordeaux's upper classes rubbing their hands in glee—2019 is a delicious, vivid release of this wine. Look out for deep, opulent blackcurrant fruit and charred meat, all draped over a backdrop of leather, five spice, cigar box and a lovely mineral complexity. There are good ripe tannins too, but it is already immensely drinkable. This will match beautifully with anything you could think of pairing with traditional Bordeaux. We prefer lamb chops.
