Located in the Haut-Médoc appellation, at the gates of the Pauillac region, Château Peyrabon is nestled in a green haven. Owned by Patrick Bernard since 1998, Château Peyrabon has undergone major work, both in the vineyard and the cellar, in order to restructure and modernise the estate. Château Peyrabon is a very fine Haut-Médoc reference, producing elegant and powerful wines which offer a promising and superb ageing potential.
In the village of Saint-Sauveur Médoc, the vineyard from which this Haut-Médoc wine is produced stretches across approximately 37 hectares of vines, around twenty years old on average, rooted in sandy gravel soil and resting on a clay subsoil. Clay-limestone soils can be found on 5 hectares of the vineyard.
Winemaking and ageing
The grapes are transferred on a vibrating sorting table, are destemmed and undergo optical sorting. The plot by plot vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled concrete and stainless steel tanks, with approrpiate pumping over and racking, in order to ensure a gentle extraction. Maceration for 19 to 24 days. The presses are separated and selected after tasting. The wine is aged for 14 months in barrels (25% new wood) and are then fined in tanks.
Cabernet Sauvignon (60%)
Cabernet Franc (6.5%)
Petit Verdot (3.5%).
Expressive, the nose gives off red (redcurrant) and black (cherry) fruit fragrances. When aired, this wine unveils subtle hints of balsamic vinegar and cedar wood, providing it with a nice freshness.
Persistent and fruity, this wine entices the palate with its subtle acidity, elegant tannins and alluring structure.
The 2015 Peyrabon has a perfumed bouquet driven by the 51% Merlot, crushed strawberry and redcurrant aromas neatly entwined with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, a fine line of acidity, good density towards the finish that delivers an attractive spiced aftertaste. This is very fine and should drink well for a decade.
