Biodynamic. L’Atypic is drawn from Peybonhomme’s biodynamically certified, limestone and clay soils in the Premières Côtes de Blaye. The vines that produce this cuvée are now 40 years old. As the name suggests, it's an ‘atypical’ co-fermented blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Franc—meaning the wine has to carry the Vin de France designation. But who cares? It’s a stunning example of Blaye-Côtes de Bordeaux: blending regulations be damned!
Fermented with indigenous yeasts and raised entirely in concrete, it’s an intense, ripe, dark cherry and spice-noted wine with a twist of dried herb and elegant tannins. There is excellent depth and intensity and mouth-watering freshness to close. With fabulous purity of fruit and superb drinkability, it’s another killer-value red from the Hubert family.
