- Concours Gilbert & Gaillard 2020 : Gold Medal
With historic spring frosts, this vintage did not really begin as we
wanted. 2017 will not be the most abundant vintage of the decade
! On the other hand, beautiful summer and autumn gave us fruity
and elegant wines...
Château La Peyruche is located on beautiful hills overlooking the
Garonne. This wine comes from an « assemblage » of plots with
gravelly red and clay-limestone soils.
This red wine is made from Merlot.
The grapes are harvested at optimum maturity. After vatting, the
fermentations are started. The maceration phase lasts about three
weeks. The wine is then put in barrels. This aging phase in barrels
(new, one wine and two wines) lasts from 12 to 14 months.
On the nose, fruity aromas are coming first (currant and blackcurrant). Aromatic palette is completed by spicy and toasted aromas.
The palate is fresh and round finally.
FOOD AND WINE PAIRING
Serve at room temperature, 16-18°C. Do not hesitate to put this
wine into a carafe a couple of hours before tasting.
This wine will idealy fit with your red meats or cheese plates.
