En Primeur In Bond ex vat
Neal Martin 90-92/100
The 2018 Peyrabon has a very agreeable bouquet of blackberry, raspberry and briary aromas, the oak nicely integrated and feeling natural. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and crunchy red fruit tinged with cedar and pine. It is a bit "chunky" on the finish, but I admire the freshness and substance, and the oak is judiciously used. Good winemaking, good wine. Vinous.com Nov 2019
Situated in the appellation of Haut-Medoc, Chateau Peyrabon is a cru bourgeois with a strong personality. Its current owner Patrick Bernard fell under the spell of the charming 50 hectare estate of promising gravel terroir in 1998. Since then, M. Bernard and his team, led by Xavier Michelet, have been passionately dedicated to creating authentic wines that are elegant, silky, and marked by their freshness and fruity character - typical of an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon.
Situated near Saint Sauveur the estate is unusual in that its vineyards are in both Haut Medoc and Pauillac appellations, sharing the same excellent gravelly terroir that really elevates the quality of its Haut Medoc.
