Château Tour Peyronneau 2019
Appellation / Saint Émilion Grand Cru
Grape | 100% Merlot
Ageing | 24 months in casks, stainless steel vats and barrels.
Tasting Notes | With a deep ruby color, the nose develops a very intense fruitiness, on aromas of black fruits (morello cherries and blueberries) but also notes of slightly peppery and smoky raspberry coulis.
Its palate is savory and juicy, with a dense structure but melted tannins.
A pure expression of Merlot, tasty and complex.
Pairing | Lamb. Grilled or roasted.
Drinking | Best from 2024 - 2030. Fine to drink now, with an hour to two of time to air.
Critic Notes / Awards | - 92-92/100 James Suckling.
