Chateau Peyre Lebade 2010, A.C. Haut Medoc

£24.95 £22.95

Chateau Peyre Lebade was acquired by Baron Edmond de Rothschild in 1973. The property is situated in the appellation of Haut-Medoc, on the left bank of Bordeaux. Since 2005 the estate has been under the guidance of Domaine Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) who help to ensure the vineyard maximises its true potential. Merlot dominates the planting with Cabernet Sauvignon also having a presence in the vineyard. As with many clarets of this style a few years in the bottle has helped to soften the tannin and reveal supple developed fruit.

Tasting notes

After an hour in the decanter this wine reveals a nose of cassis, cigar box, tobacco and graphite. It’s developed yet structured and will stand up nicely to some roast beef. The 2010 vintage was considered one of the greatest thanks to warm days and cool nights, and whilst Ch. Peyre Lebade 2010 shows very well now it does possess the ability to cellar for a few years.
