Chateau Pey De Pont Medoc 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Medoc|
|Brand||Chateau Pey De Pont|
Evenly balanced between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this wine, with its eucalyptus perfumes, is structured and shows its wood aging as well as fruit. With firm tannins and still young, it needs to age. Drink this wine from 2022.
The 2015 Pey de Pont is far far better than the lackluster 2014 last year. It has a nicely detailed blackberry, bilberry and sage-scented bouquet, with cedar and graphite emerging with time. It is not an intense nose but fresh and lively. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, brisk and slightly chalky tannin. I adore the tension and vivacity of this Cru Bourgeois, and there is a saline finish. Excellent.
