Château Pey La Tour
This is my first taste of Pey la Tour in many years, and the 2012 vintage (considered "classic") is the perfect point of return. It greets the nose with cherries and earth - not a great deal more - but typical red from the region (Bordeaux A. C.). En...

The 2010 Reserve du Chateau is a very good bottle of juice; the nose conjures up dried cherries and wet (black) earth, and the entry is very smooth with ample vanilla and tannin mid-palate. The flavour profile is dominated by cherry and perhaps some p...

The 2010 Reserve du Chateau is a very good bottle of juice; the nose conjures up dried cherries and wet (black) earth, and the entry is very smooth with ample vanilla and tannin mid-palate. The flavour profile is dominated by cherry and perhaps some plum; finish is also quite long - although some stem intrudes - though not to great detriment of... Read More

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.

Some sweet cherry and grape stem on the nose; while the color is inviting and dark. Blueberry, bilberry and plum hold sway on the palate which is tickled by somewhat acerbic tannin. Some structure evident... could age 2-3 more years; well-made and very rive gauche in style. Excellent value. 86 points. Read More
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. Read More
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. Read More
Not that keen on this one though... too much fruits to the point that it is far acidic. Read More
On a warm June day I was lost on the winding roads of Canon-Fronsac, an appellation on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. When I finally turn up more than an hour late at Château Moulin-Pey-Labrie, owner Grégoire Hubau makes a few witty digs about wine critics rarely finding their way to this little-known region. We head for his cellar, hung with amusing po... Read More
