Tasting notes Les Chemins de Peyrou Bordeaux
Bright full red wine with the powerful scent of new oak and roasted spicy nuances. Serve with spicy and powerful (meat) dishes or cheeses.
Les Chemins de Peyrou comes from a two-hectare small vineyard, just outside the wine borders of Saint-Emilion. Owner and winemaker Cathérine Papon turns it into a beautiful, exemplary 'right bank' burgundy. How could it be different. Papon was born and raised in Saint-Emilion and owns the Grand Cru Château Gaillard and the fantastic Castillon, Château Peyrou. She makes the wine exclusively from hand-picked merlot grapes, followed by a traditional vinification and a short maturation on oak casks.
Cathérine is convinced of a biodynamic working method and her vineyards are therefore bio-certified. The result is a concentrated red wine that wants to be decanted - aeration in a carafe - wants to be. Continued aging in the bottle for at least a year gives the wine even more complexity in smell and taste.
Most red wine is made to be drunk relatively quickly and is not suitable for use. The cause usually lies in a somewhat higher return, whether or not in combination with an adapted wine preparation. As a result, the wine gets less concentration and is faster to drink.
But there are also wines that are suitable for imposition and can 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. However, you can also drink her wines young, but preferably after decanting or in combination with a sturdy (meat) dish.
Only a few places left in your wine rack? Let her wines then certainly ripen for a while!
