CHATEAU PEYFAURES 2014 - GRAND VIN DE BORDEAUX - MILLÉSIME 2014
2014 Tasting Notes
2014 gave us an exceptionally long growing season, lending our wine a deep complexity and layers of fruit and savory earth. Vibrant acid adds a refreshing, food-friendly finish and ensures that it will stay bright for years to come.
It opens with a dark reddish-purple hue and aromas of ripe cherry and brown spice. Rich and medium-bodied, this blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc combines mouth-filling flavors of cherry and blackberry with notes of cinnamon, licorice and sweet herbs for a balanced and well-integrated taste. Linear acidity with succulent fruit flavors for a long, silky finish.
