After a late frost at the beginning of April which spared the estate, followed by a mild spring and an exceptional flowering, drought set in. However, our vines resisted superbly thanks to a well thought-out and accomplished vineyard management. The harvest was early, but the quality of the juice is quite remarkable.
Château La Peyruche is located on the magnificent hillsides overlooking the Garonne River. This wine comes from a single plot of young Merlots (Les Pins Francs) on asteriated limestone. All our plots are cultivated according to the specifications of the Organic Agriculture.
The grapes are harvested when the aromatic maturity is reached. Vatting lasts from 10 to 15 days at moderate temperature, and fermentation is carried out with native yeasts. In order to reduce the inputs in our wines and to respect the aromatic profiles offered by these Merlots, we decided to elaborate this cuvée without any sulfites added.
1500 bottles produced.
The robe is deep with purple reflections. The nose is dominated by blackcurrant and blueberry notes. The mouth is fresh and fruity. The tannins "of youth" are present and bring relief to this vintage dedicated to the cleanliness of the fruit.
