Situated in the heart of the Pauillac appellation, Chateau La Fleur Peyrabon is a Cru Bourgeois with a great personality. On the left bank of Bordeaux, this property has since 1998 been brilliantly managed by Patrick Bernard, who has made it a point of honor to produce elegant and refined wines that reflect the unique qualities of this great terroir.
This Cru Bourgeois is home to vines aged 22 years on average, planted on a little over 7 hectares of land, featuring sandy gravels topsoil upon clay subsoils, a fantastic Médoc terroir.
For this 2020 vintage, the harvests at Chateau La Fleur Peyrabon were carried out manually and mechanically. The harvests began on 18 September for the Merlot and ended on 3 October with the Cabernet Sauvignon.
The winemaking and aging
The grapes, transferred by vibrating trailer, are subject to a destemming and an optical sorting, followed by crushing and barrelling. Plot-by-plot vinification is carried out in concrete and thermoregulated stainless steel vats, accompanied by pour-overs, punch-downs and rack and return to encourage a smooth extraction. The pressed juices are systematically separated in barrels. The funnelling is partly carried out in drained barrels. Aging lasts for 14 months in barrels (60% in new oak), with fining in vats afterwards.
The Chateau La Fleur Peyrabon 2020 is a beautifully round wine which reveals a floral and indulgent character. Its perfect structure, beautiful balance and impressive length characterize this blend focused on red and black fruits.
