|EAN:||Château Peyrou Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux|
Scarlet Bordeaux wine with a powerful aroma of fresh fruit oak and burnt notes. The taste is spicy. Young drunk excellent with grilled meat; after a few years of ripening delicious with game.
The iconic wine of Cathérine Papon is Château Peyrou located on the border with Saint-Emilion and covered by the proven designation Castillon - Côtes de Bordeaux. The now fully certified 45-hectare vineyard is planted with merlot (80%) and both cabernet grapes.
The clay soil type and the location on a slope provide a modest yield and the traditional vinification then leads to a classic storage wine. If decanted to drink well young.
But Château Peyrou shows it the most beautiful after a few years of aging.
With the true burgundy characteristics: refined and velvety in taste and with a long aftertaste. Top class wine from an excellent harvest and consistent over the years. It is not for nothing that the two previous harvests were also rated excellent.
Most red wine is made to be relatively quick to drink and is not suitable for support. The cause is usually in a somewhat higher yield, whether or not in combination with an adjusted winemaking. This gives the wine less concentration and is faster to drink.
But there are also wines that are suitable for laying on and can already appeal to them in their youth. A good example is the production of Cathérine Papon from the region around Saint-Emilion. She makes concentrated red burgundy with storage potential. You can also drink her wines young but preferably after decanting or in combination with a firm (meat) dish.
