Château Pey la Tour Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée 2010

Member Review by jtryka:

Very nice wine, enjoying it at the Gaby restaurant at the Sofitel in New York. Nice dark fruit, a bit of oak and leather and a sublimely dry finish.

Not a bad nose. Smell of red fruits. The wine itself probably would have improved with decanting. It felt closed and one dimensional. Surprisingly heavy on tannins considering its 77 % Merlot. Oaky.

definitely agree with the initial plums and spice. These are merely just hints at first, as the wine when first opened is quite closed. As it opens up it presents what you would expect from a merlot dominated blend from Bordeaux, more intense plums, some red fruits and a hint of blackcurrant (possibly from the Cab Sauv) this is followed by herby notes with some toast from oak. The palate is much the same and it finishes on a savoury note. Good St. Emillion pretender for the money.

Big nose once you first cork the wine, however I found it to be a slim body for a Bordeaux. Can smell the earth, dirt, and must of a typical Bordeaux but lacks the great pallet taste. Not bad to have around the house for people who don't know good wine but like Bordeaux's

I have to agree with Bcoyle on this one

Leaning a little towards the New World style with this wine but not too much so. More acidity and not over-ripe like most CA reds. Well balanced with good dark fruit, nice acidity, a little earthiness and some smooth tannins. This is a great easy drinking everyday wine. I've had plenty of Bordeaux at twice the price of this that weren't nearly as good. Really nice QPR.

Mittleres Purpur-Rubin. Kräftiges Kirschenbouquet, feiner Kaffeehauch dahinter, helle Hölzer, reife Frucht. Im Gaumen süss, fülliger Körper, man spürt die Wärme und Reife des Jahrgangs, gebündeltes Finale. Zeigt Reserven und wird doch schon bald Freude machen.
