Chateau Peyrabon Haut Medoc 2018
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Haut Medoc|
This estate, touching Pauillac, belongs to the Bernard family, also owners of Domaine de Chevalier. Rich tannins and wood aging have given intense spice to this wine that is bold, rich and concentrated. The vivid, ripe black fruits will calm down as the wine ages further, giving a balanced, smooth blend. Drink from 2025.
The 2018 Peyrabon is fulfilling its promise from barrel. It has a well-defined and focused bouquet of lively blackberry and briary scents, touches of cedar and tobacco coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit and a fine lattice of tannins that impress, considering this is a Bordeaux Supérieur with excellent length. Bon vin!
Sweet black cherry and blackberry fruits, with good balance and freshness on the finish. Mouthwatering, with touches of grilled rosemary, pepper and woodsmoke. A consistent success rate at this property that is owned by Millésima négociants. Vineyards of gravel and sand soils over a clay subsoil. A yield of 22hl/ha, aged in 25% new oak. Drinking Window 2022 - 2038.
