Description

Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours is managed by fifth generation growers: their vineyards are certified biodynamic, their wines are easy drinking young, and they offer outstanding value for money.

Lying on the right bank of the Gironde, directly opposite the renowned Medoc communes of Margaux, St-Julien and Pauillac, despite their proximity to such hallowed real estate, the viticultural picture could hardly be more different here; the flat, orderly communes of the left bank give way to an undulating, pastoral landscape and the rows of manicured Cabernet becomes a blend of Merlot, Malbec and Cab Franc. The legendary gravel of the Medoc also finds itself replaced by a complex mesh of limestone, sand, gravel and iron-rich clays.

Tasting Note

Biodynamic since 2000, double guyot pruning, spontaneous winter weed, spring tillage. Treatments combining Bordeaux mixture in small quantities with herbal teas such as horsetail and nettle.
