"Produced only in top years, this Tannat-dominated wine is named after the Greenwich 0-degree longitude that passes through the vineyard. The wine itself is powerful and structured while keeping a great sense of style. Black fruits push through strongly. offering richness and balanced acidity. The wood aging combines easily with the fruit tannins to give a textured, dry background. Drink from late 2015." Reviewed March 2015

Product Description:

This estate dates back to the 17th century. It was acquired by the Lesgourgues family in 1999. With the help of Emile Penaud, Château Peyros was provided with a stainless steel tank. Also, a microoxygenation system was set up in order to soften the wines made from Tannat. “Peyros” in Gascony language means a stony place, a strong characteristic of the terroir.
