    A Ready-to-Drink Bordeaux Superieur

    Bordeaux Superieur estate Chateau Peyfaures was established in 1830 in the hamlet of Genissac to the east of Entre-deux-Mers, just across the Dordogne River from the Right Bank appellations of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. The vines of the estate thrive in soils of clay-limestone and are cultivated by means of organic and biodynamic viticultural practices. Chateau Peyfaures focuses primarily on Merlot, its flagship variety, blended with small quantities of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Peyfaures signature style reflects a return to the traditional Bordeaux winemaking that existed before the arrival of modern practices. Following a manual harvest, the fruit is crushed in a traditional basket press. Then, spontaneous fermentation is carried out with exclusively autochthonous yeasts. The Peyfaures team has chosen a minimal intervention, parcel-by-parcel winemaking style, which allows the vineyard terroir to be the star of the show. The oaking (proportion of new oak used in the aging process and length of aging) is adjusted to each new vintage.

    The Chateau Peyfaures 2007 is the product of a vintage characterized by cooler temperatures, which contributed to its finely grained and very delicate aromas. On the nose, this Bordeaux Superieur expresses more red fruit than purple or black fruit, along with dried rose petals and damp forest floor. This wine was aged exlusively in French oak barrels (1/3 new) for 15 months. The blend of the 2007 vintage contains 95% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a wine that is already accessible in its youth, ready to be enjoyed now.
