The structure and refinement of a Haut-Médoc Second Wine

The estate

Château Pierbone is the Second Wine of Château Peyrabon. Located in the Haut-Médoc appellation, at the gates of the Pauillac region, Château Peyrabon is nestled in a haven of greenery. 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.

The vineyard

Near the village of Saint-Sauveur Médoc, the Château Peyrabon vineyard spreads over approximately 37 hectares of vines, aged around twenty years 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. The vineyard is certified ISO14001-2015 and HVE (High Environmental Value) with a phytosanitary protection carried out in a sustainable manner.

Vinification and ageing

Rigorously sorted, the grapes are vinified in batches in temperature-controlled concrete and stainless steel vats. Fermentation, carried out at around 25 to 26°C, is accompanied by a gentle extraction through appropriate pumping over and racking. Maceration for 19 to 24 days. Vertical pressing in order to obtain a progressive extraction. The systematic separation of the presses precedes a selection, based on the tasting, of the batches entering the blend. The wine is aged in concrete vats.

The blend

The 2015 Château Pierbone comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (6.5%) and Petit Verdot (3.5%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
