WINE - Bordeaux

Chateau Pey La Tour 2005
This Bordeaux Superieur property is a blend of 89% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Petit Verdot. Production is around one million bottles from a 170 ha site. The property has been owned by Dourthe since 1990.

My tasting notes: January 25th 5:30pm

Ruby red aromas of tobacco leaf and herb. Medium to full-bodied with a lush Merlot dominated texture, some tannic grip, and flavours of plum, tobacco, vanilla, and blackberry leaf. Nice finish of subtle lead pencil and leafy cassis. Drink now with 1 hour decanting or cellar up to 3 years.
BCLDB stores $26.49 CDN$
