Renowned equally for its customer loyalty as for the positive comments garnered in the press, Château Pey la Tour wines are today acknowledged as a benchmark of affordable, premium Bordeaux wines. Château Pey la Tour Réserve du Château, Bordeaux Supérieur, is the "Grand Vin" from the estate. Matured like a Grand Cru wine, it is elegant, concentrated and delicious.Edited from the Chateau notes[80% merlot with cabernets sauvignon and franc]
Some sweet cherry and grape stem on the nose while the palate receives blueberry, bilberry and plum in abundance. There is some tickling of the tongue by slightly acerbic tannin suggests a little structure – and indeed, there is some sediment upon decanting. Quite firm, well-made, and right-bank in style, this wine is good value for money. Not a lot of complexity, but good Bordeaux (Merlot) flavors in abundance. With the high production of this estate, you may even find a bottle or two. 86 points.
