NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS👁 of a beautiful deep ruby red;
👃🏻 the nose is dominated by hints of red, herbaceous and floral fruits, with a slightly woody finish;
👄 on the palate it is round and soft, with an excellent balance and a nice persistence. The tannin is not intrusive and makes it very pleasant to drink.
This is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Persistence, intensity, structure and tannins are the masters, which is why it needs equally robust food, with high succulence and aromaticity. It is therefore excellent with first courses with persistent flavors, stewed red meats and game.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
Born from a green philosophy, the old vines are cultivated according to biodynamic guidelines. Only indigenous yeasts during the vinification, then the wine is partially aged in barrels and in terracotta amphorae. Dominated by Merlot, this wine is all fruit without giving up a classic signature, with accents of cigar, undergrowth and a light floral touch.

its structure and elegance.
We are in the Bordeaux area, one of the most important wine territories in the world. Bordeaux not only reaches incredible qualitative peaks but from immemorial time it has held those results constant, year after year, with the stuff of champions.It benefits from the proximity of the Atlantic Ocean. The climate is maritime: mild winters, cool summers, abundant rainfall but very well absorbed by the soil rich in stones, breccias and sediments. The soils are very variable on the surface, not particularly fertile and covered with a thin layer with breccia, while the deep layers are very rich in minerals. Specifically: the Médoc area is gravelly in Haut-Médoc, in particular in the Margaux, Saint-Julien, Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe appellations. The crus classés are located on peaks, small hills separated by small streams perpendicular to the Gironde which over the millennia have been filled with sand and sediments less suitable for viticulture. The peaks consist of pebbles and gravel cemented by clay-rich sands, increasingly clay-rich from south to north.The Sauternes area, on the other hand, is located on a limestone rich in fossils, largely covered by Quaternary alluvial deposits that form slightly sloping terraces. Barsac, a flatter area, is an exception, as the soil is dotted with limestone due to erosion.While the Graves area takes its name from the dominant type of soil, gravel. These deposits of gravel and pebbles, often mixed with sand and clay, are deposited by the Garonne. They form a succession of gently sloping terraces, which increase in age as they move away from the river. As in the Médoc, valleys have formed which create different peaks. The north of this area is of superior quality to the south, with incredibly rich gravel.
In 1906 Jean-Baptiste Audy settled in Libourne and created his négoce along the Dordogne Riviera (already then famous for its négociants) dedicating himself to the distribution of the great Bordeaux wines.He immediately showed a clear preference for the rive droite and in particular for Pomerol, which in some respects constitutes the new frontier of the Bordeaux area. It will therefore be in this wonderful commune that Jean Baptiste Audy will also consolidate his activity as a winemaker.In a short time, this large independent family group with a solid financial base perpetuated a long entrepreneurial tradition with the triple function of winemaker, refiner and distributor.As proof of this, the group controls important Châteaux of the most prestigious appellations as well as owning numerous properties such as Clos du Clocher / Pomerol, Château Bonalgue / Pomerol, Château du Courlat / Lussac Saint Emilion and Château Peyruchet.From 1991 to 2002, Pierre Bourotte, grandson of Jean-Baptiste Audy, headed the company. Joined in 2003 by his son Jean-Baptiste, the two have been able to create solid collaborations with numerous châteaux of all Bordeaux appellations. Many of their prestigious wines are aged in the centenary cellars of about 15,000 square meters. Château Peyruchet is a small property of 30 hectares in the Loupiac appellation: a still familiar reality, in which manual work goes together with the most modern winemaking techniques to guarantee the highest quality.
