Château Pey La Tour - Réserve Vieilles Vignes

AOC Bordeaux Supérieur

Packshot Bouteille Pey La Tour Vieilles vignes - site

Completely overwhelmed by the quality of this vineyard that dates back to the middle ages, Dourthe acquired the estate in 1990.  For more than 25 years, a new viticultural approach was applied across the entire vineyard, respecting the terroir and vines in the quest for optimum fruit quality. As a result of rigorous vineyard management, the harvest is spread markedly over time, allowing all the grapes to be picked at optimum ripeness.  The Réserve Vieilles Vignes du Château, which expresses the specific character of the finest terroirs, is aged for 12 - 14 months in the barrel hall next to the winery.

Vinification & Ageing

Cold pre-fermentation maceration applied to certain batches. Traditional vinification in individual batches in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. 

12 - 14 months in oak barrels, in individual batches. Partly aged on the lees.

Tasting notes

“Concentrated and bright in appearance. Intensely fruity on the nose, offering delicately spiced notes, and leading up to the full-bodied, all-encompassing palate, where fresh dark fruits are lifted by appealing freshness and evident, yet silky, tannins. Lovely lingering finish characterised by fruit, spice and the odd lingering tannic note that will soon soften.” (June 2016)

Frédéric Bonnaffous, Vignobles Dourthe Director

Blend

88% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot

Tasting notes

Very ripe on the nose, fleshy and wonderfully intense, revealing roasted, mocha notes. The wine is generous on the palate, well-balanced, with fine and rounded tannins which are evident but not at all aggressive. The wine is concentrated with a hint of freshness on the finish.

Blend

90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc
