AOC Bordeaux

Château Pey La Tour - Bordeaux Rouge-SM

Dourthe acquired the vineyard in 1990, committed to exploiting this high quality vineyard and producing a fruity, well-balanced and elegant, terroir-driven wine. For more than 25 years, a completely “reassessed” viticultural regime has been applied to the entire vineyard, in the utmost respect for the terroir and vines in a bid to obtain optimum fruit quality. Planted essentially with Merlot (90%), and complemented with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the wine displays a lovely garnet colour, with predominant red fruit aromas on the bouquet. Chateau Pey La Tour unquestionably reveals all the qualities of a fine Bordeaux wine with abundant harmony even in youth.

Au nez se dévoilent des arômes gourmands de fraise, de framboise et de cerise, agrémentés d'un trait épicé. On retrouve ces belles sensations fruitées dans un palais ample, suave et rond, étayé par des tanins tendres et élégants. De l'harmonie de bout en bout.   

Tasting notes

Lovely bright ruby red in appearance tinged with garnet. Intense on the nose, aromas of red fruits (raspberries and fresh blackberries) define the bouquet and leads into a crunchy, aromatic and rounded palate. A lovely, well-balanced wine that culminates in a refreshing and full-flavoured finish with notes of liquorice and spices.

Lovely deep, dark, crimson-tinged appearance. Mature and expressive on the nose, unleashing aromas of black cherries and blackberries. Initially smooth on the palate, the wine develops full-bodied, velvety character, full of black berry fruit flavours and underpinned by delicate tannins. Full-flavoured and fruity on the finish.

Bright ruby-red in colour. The rich bouquet develops notes of fresh, ripe fruit.

...une bouche légèrement ferme et riche...un millésime 2010 en équilibre sur ses sucres et sa structure tannique. Un palais de velours pour ce vin composé d'une grande majorité de merlot, avec une pointe de cabernet-sauvignon et une lichette de franc. Avec une volaille. 

Vino Magazine
Robe profonde. Nez joliment ouvert sur une perception fruitée dominante secondée par une présence épicée appréciée. Touche identique, plaisante en diable et d'une rondeur remarquée. Finale longue au fruité très présent.

Always a name to look out for in the search for «reliable inexpensive « Bordeaux. The blend here is 84% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc. Subdued nose, definitely needs some time, but carafing/giving it breathing space in glass should be all you need.
