Château-la-Fleur-Peyrabon Cru Bourgeois Pauillac 2010


SKU 06574


Situated in the appellation of Haut-Medoc, Chateau Peyrabon is a cru bourgeois with a strong personality. Its current owner Patrick Bernard, of the wine merchant Millésima, fell under the spell of the charming 50 hectare estate of promising gravel terroir in 1998. Since then, M. Bernard and his team, led by Xavier Michelet, have been passionately dedicated to creating authentic wines that are elegant, silky, and marked by their freshness and fruity character - typical of an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine EnthusiastA structured wine from this small 17-acre Pauillac cru bourgeois, this shows weight, intense black-currant fruitiness and density from the high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Dark and brooding, it's likely to age for many years.

Wine AdvocateOpaque ruby/purple with notes of lead pencil shavings, cedar wood, black currants, forest floor and some oak, the wine performs like a classified growth. Full-bodied and rich, with striking purity, texture and a long 30-second finish, this wine should drink nicely for up to 15 or more years.
