Tasting note Colombe de Peyrou
Deep red wine from Bordeaux with a powerful aroma of fresh fruit, oak and roasted notes. The taste is spicy. Excellent with grilled meat when drunk young; delicious with game after several years of maturation.
The icon wine of Cathérine Papon is Château Peyrou located on the border with Saint-Emilion and falling under the appellation of origin Castillon - Côtes de Bordeaux. The vineyard of 45 hectares, now fully certified organic, is planted with merlot (80%) and both cabernet grapes.
The clayey soil type and the location on a slope ensure a modest yield and the traditional vinification then leads to a classic storage wine. Good to drink young if decanted.
But Château Peyrou shows its best after a few years of maturation.
With the true Bordeaux characteristics: refined and once drunk, 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 drunk relatively quickly and is not suitable for aging. The cause usually lies in a somewhat higher yield, whether or not in combination with an adapted winemaking process. This gives the wine less concentration and it is drunk faster.
But there are also wines that are suitable for aging and can still appeal in their youth. A good example is the production of Cathérine Papon from the region around Saint-Emilion. She makes concentrated red bordeaux with storage potential. However, you can also drink her wines young, but preferably after decanting or in combination with a hearty (meat) dish.
Have a few spots left in your wine rack? Then let her wines mature for a while!
