AOP Médoc


Château Peyre-Lebade2010, 750 ml

Château Peyre-Lebade veils a rich historical heritage. The first traces of viticulture dates back to the Cistercien monks of the Vertheuil Abbey in the 12th century. Several centuries later, in 1835, Bertrand Redon, who was Odilon Redon’s father, purchased the Peyre-Lebade estate. As of that date, Château Peyre-Lebade would undergo great changes in cultivation and quality under the direction of Baron Edmond. Château Peyre-Lebade is now an integral part of Baron Benjamin (son of Edmond) de Rothschild’s properties. Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) handles the marketing of its wines. Château Peyre-Lebade wines feature the fruity and fleshy characteristics specific to the Haut-Médoc appellation. They are nonetheless distinguished by the high Merlot content, which makes them particularly supple.
Grape varieties: Merlot 65–75%, Cabernet Sauvignon 15–25%, Cabernet Franc 10%.                                                      
Nose: Fresh red fruit, cherry, raspberry with hints of liquorice and spice. 
Palate: Round attack, rather supple tannins, relatively fresh and flavoursome. 
Ageing potential: Although pleasant to drink from 2010–2011, it will benefit from being laid down for a few years in the cellar and this vintage can be kept for about 8 to 10 years.
Recommendations: Decanting about 1 hour. Serving temperature 16–18°C.
