Château Pey La Tour - Réserve Du Château (2016)

New

2016 was a great year for Bordeaux wines and this Bordeaux Supérieur is no exception. Very concentrated, almost black in appearance. The intense bouquet delivers an explosion of black berry aromas together with a touch of spice. Full and generous on the palate, structured by delicate, silky tannins, coated in fresh, juicy fruit. The delicately integrated oak accompanies the full-flavoured, lingering finish of this superb, concentrated, fleshy and delicious wine.

    Château Pey La Tour is located between Bordeaux and Saint-Emilion. Château Pey La Tour has a diversity of terroirs rare for the appellation: the combination of soil types, grape varieties, rootstocks and the age of the vines has led to the identification of 90 distinct plots which are vinified and aged. separately and thus offer Château Pey La Tour the character and complexity of a very great Bordeaux wine.

    Completely overwhelmed by the quality of this vineyard that dates back to the middle ages, Dourthe acquired the estate in 1990.  For more than 25 years, a new viticultural approach was applied across the entire vineyard, respecting the terroir and vines in the quest for optimum fruit quality. As a result of rigorous vineyard management, the harvest is spread markedly over time, allowing all the grapes to be picked at optimum ripeness.  The Réserve du Château, which expresses the specific character of the finest terroirs, is aged for 12 - 14 months in the barrel hall next to the winery. The results of these efforts have been rewarded in the excellent press reviews, instating Château Pey La Tour well above its appellation.

    Vinification & Ageing

    Cold pre-fermentation maceration applied to certain batches. Traditional vinification in individual batches in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Decuvage by hand from tanks filled with marc. Pneumatic press.

    12 - 14 months in oak barrels, in individual batches. Partly aged on the lees.

    Decanter Note: A wonderfully affordable Bordeaux full of vibrancy and freshness. Intense aromas of blackberry alongside spiced, soft tannins. It’s full-bodied but refined, with juicy fruit given structure by oak ageing. Lovely now but will age.

    Decanter Score: 90
