when did Château Peybonhomme Les Tours start? when might you open a bottle?
Each new vintage in Bordeaux seems to raise to a fever pitch the endless speculation on futures and just how expensive the wines will be this year. While there sems to be a strong market for bottles that cost hundreds of dollars, the real and sustainable pleasure in Bordeaux, in our experience, comes from lower priced bottles that will age for a decade or more. We love to open these bottles with friends without concern for the investment they represent. It took us five years to find such a house in Bordeaux and we are thrilled to offer La Grolet as one of the best values we’ve ever tasted.
where is Château Peybonhomme Les Tours?
The soil in Bourg is varied and the region is known for it’s rolling hills. La Grolet’s vines are south facing and sit on a largely gravel base. The exposure means that frost is rarely a consern, but the potential for hail makes the family nervous every year.
why might you want a taste? why is Château Peybonhomme Les Tours a Candid Wine?
La Grolet is a Candid Wine because we could not believe how clean and balanced the wines are for the price when we first tasted at the Renaissance des Appelations tasting in France. Most people will become fans of La Grolet without even knowing that the wines are grown without pesticides and made without modern techniques. This is what traditional, affordable, right bank Bordeaux tastes like to us, and we are proud to work with the Hubert Family.
