Chateau Peyrat - Graves Rouge 2020
Château Peyrat brings minerality, freshness and elegance.
Château Peyrat is located in the town of Conais, on the famous historic Route des Graves (N113), a stone's throw from the Sauternes vineyards. Run by Damien and Ludovic Martial, alongside Aurélien Dulor they work to promote mechanical soil work, restore natural balances to promote biodiversity and give wines a unique and optimal expression. Choosing to let the plant live, express itself, create a symbiosis between the elements is what forms a unique taste within Peyrat wines.
A brilliant ruby colour. Spicy, fresh, toasted, blackcurrant nose. Straight on the palate, fresh, spicy, notes of nutmeg, hazelnut, fresh red fruits. The terroir is still marked by the ample, clean and spicy mouthfeel. Cellar 2028+.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2020 Peyrat offers notes of Bing cherries, redcurrants and mulberries, plus hints of raspberry leaves, wild sage and crushed rocks. The medium-bodied palate delivers just enough red berry flavors with a lively line and chewy texture, finishing with an herbal lift. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate.
A juicy and medium fruity red with some earth and spice with hints of barnyard. Medium body. Light chewy tannins. 70% merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 15% cabernet franc. Drink now. James Suckling.
