Chateau La Peyre Saint Estephe 2012

Chateau La Peyre Saint Estephe 2012 France

$71.95

Château La Peyre Cru Artisan – Saint Estéphe
The wine is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot, the vines average age is 30 years old representing 6.80 ha producing a yield of 47 hl/ha on average. Once the grapes have been hand harvest and sorted at the cellar they are destemmed. The grains will undergo a pre-fermentation skin maceration at a cold temperature for a couple of days to extract colour, flavours and structure. The fermentations last 3 to 4 weeks in stainless steel vats at 23-28°C. The wine is aged in french oak barrels for 12 to 15 months of which 30% to 40% are new depending on the vintage.

PVins notes: Dark red in colour, expressive aromas with subtle hints of oak in its youth. On the palate the oak is well integrated, the firm tannins of a Saint Estéphe are tamed by the Merlot providing an elegant tannic structure and balance. The wine may be cellared for 15+ years depending on the vintage.
