Tasting Notes

This Bordeaux is a blend of the Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. A fuller-bodied dry white wine that stands out thanks to the depth of it's aromas, texture and body. The richness is no doubt from the ripe Sémillon fruit, the freshness and aromas due to the Sauvignon Blanc. Lively on the palate and remarkably pure. The Hubert family settled at the Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours in the village of Cars in 1895, and six generations have followed since.

Staff Pick Notes

Chateau Peybonhomme has to be amongst the top of the world list of quality to price ratio. The estate is currently run by the 5th generation of the Hubert family. All of their vines are farmed organically and biodynamically. The soils are clay on top of limestone. Here’s a wine made from a 50-50 blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Out of the glass, it has a nice golden color and an olive oil viscosity. It smells of roasted pineapple, apples, and a tinge of pine. The mouthfeel has weight and slickness and a brisk acidity appears mid palate. 40% of the wine is fermented in new oak and the rest in concrete. Lovely with a wedge of Aged Comté cheese.

(It’s a somewhat odd way of pointing out herbaceousness in the wine.) Cat pee aside, Sauvignon Blanc (sometimes called "Fumé Blanc" in California) is a bit of a chameleon in terms of style, and quite...

For white Bordeaux, only three varieties are permitted:...
