Chateau Peyrabon Haut Medoc 2006
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Haut Medoc|
Nestled in its green setting, Château Peyrabon suddenly emerges from the bend of perfectly aligned rows of vines. For more than 20 years, the Bernard family has put all their passion and energy into the service of this pearl of the Haut-Médoc, magnificently located on a hillside of gravel a few kilometers from Pauillac. In the heart of the Médoc, Château Peyrabon is built in the middle of its vineyard where an alley lined with vines leads to this magnificent Renaissance-style building. This art was first born in Italy and then gradually introduced in Europe. Finally, it is discovered in France during the battles against Italy in the 16th century. "From Peyrabon website"
Château Peyrabon 2006 has bright dark fruit and wood spices on the nose. These notes continue throughout the wine, displaying a robust structure with well-defined tannins, perfectly balanced by a vibrant dark fruit core of energy with lovely violets and clove spice notes evolving longingly on the palette.
