77% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot makes for a classic Bordeaux blend which makes for a wine whose complexity and intensity belie its pedigree. In 2009 ripening grapes was not an issue for any competent grower and wines tended toward a juiciness not often associated with Bordeaux; with its dark berry flavors this wine is no exception but it still retains a sense of its origins with subtle non-fruit aromas like cedar, leather and wood smoke. This wine is delicious now and will drink well for a few more years. Think about pairing it with beef, lamb, aged hard cheeses and salumi.
Wine maker notes
Dourthe acquired the vineyard in 1990, committed to exploiting this high quality vineyard and producing a fruity, well-balanced and elegant, terroir-driven wine. For more than 25 years, a completely “reassessed” viticultural regime has been applied to the entire vineyard, in the utmost respect for the terroir and vines in a bid to obtain optimum fruit quality. Planted essentially with Merlot (90%), and complemented with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the wine displays a lovely garnet colour, with predominant red fruit aromas on the bouquet. Chateau Pey La Tour unquestionably reveals all the qualities of a fine Bordeaux wine with abundant harmony even in youth.
