Chateau La Grolet - 2010 Côtes de Bourg Bordeaux

Chateau Peybonhommes

Prominent aromas of red & dark berries, pepper spice, the wine is well–balanced with integrated tannins and a long finish. Pairs with all kinds of pasta and light dishes, as well as grilled rib steak, venison or game. A beautiful concentration and complex wine that is full of passion, very elegant with soft tannins. The influence of terroir is undeniable and gives the wine a great character. A great vintage with a bright future. The wine can easily age for another 5-10 years.  Serving Temperature: 16-18°C / 60-64°F 

Winemaking

Hand-picked early in season to ensure fresh taste and well-integrated acidity. First fermentation in temperature-controlled concrete tanks, then matured in wood barrels for approximately one year to concentrate flavors and aromas, completely following the organic and bio-dynamic principles of wine making.
