|EAN:||Château Peyrou Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux Colombe de Peyrou|
French red wine with the smell of fine ripe red fruit and a nuance of oak. The taste is full and accessible. Nice wine with many stews and lamb or beef.
Of only 45 hectares of vineyards, the oenologous Cathérine Papon, based at the University of Bordeaux, makes a particularly good quality Castillon. The vineyards are separated from the appellation Saint Emilion by a small country road. The vines are on average 80 years old and are fully biologically processed. Once in the cellar, the hand-picked merlot (80%) cabernet franc (10%) and cabernet sauvignon (10%) grapes are fermented into wine. The best assembly is used for the main wine Château Peyrou which needs a longer ripening. The more accessible second wine, Colombe de Peyrou, ripens for about a year in oak casks and is more like a drink. Beautiful classic red burgundy in Saint Emilion style.
