Chateau de Peybonhomme ‘L’Atypic’ Blaye-Côtes de Bordeaux 2012

Estate” The Hubert family have owned Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours in the village of Cars near Blaye since 1895. Catherine Hubert is the 6th generation winemaker of the family to produce at the estate, along with her husband Jean-Luc, and now their children, Guillaume and Rachel. Catherine and Jean-Luc Hubert also own Chateau La Grolet in the Cotes de Bourg. The estate practices organic and biodynamic farming and has been Demeter certified since 2000. The family is passionate about managing every aspect of winemaking, from “vines to bottling line”.

Winemaking: From vineyards with clay/limestone soils. Fermented with native yeasts, unfiltered. ‘L’Atypic’ is only made in the best vintages. The cuvée is named “atypical” because of its unique 50/50 blend of Malbec and Cabernet Franc.

Tasting Notes: Dark garnet in colour with intense aromas of black cherry, baked plum, ripe grape, black olive, spice and a trace of balsamic. Blackberry, plum, black cherry and crushed white pepper corn with a drizzle of balsamic fuse with earthy forest floor. Silky tannins and good acidity compliment dark fruit on the plush, spicy finish. Luscious and silky, lovely on its own or at the table. A fantastic value.
