2019 Chateau Peybonhomme-les-Tours Vin de France L'Atypic

Bordeaux, France

Fun Bordeaux blend of Malbec and Cab Franc, all organic. Bright and engaging this drinks brilliantly right now.



About The Wine

A blend of just Malbec and Cabernet Franc doesn't cut la moutarde for the Bordeaux authorities so this absurdly drinkable red is simply labelled Vin de France.

As we've seen over the last few years, lots of wines with this low-caste labelling are the best value and interesting of the French wines we try. Certainly the case here - this atypical (Atypic) wine is fleshy, ripe and fun, with great fruit concentration and liveliness.

All estate fruit from the Chateau Peybonhomme, farmed organically and biodynamically on the right bank of the Gironde estuary.

About Chateau Peybonhomme

Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours and Château de Grolet, both run by the Hubert Familly, sit on the opposite bank of the mighty Gironde estuary - with good binoculars you can make out some overpriced Margaux and Pauillac producers. But there is little Cabernet Sauvignon here as this is outstanding Merlot and Cabernet Franc country.

The wines and vineyards dismantle every Bordeaux stereotype imaginable. Certified organic and biodynamic, unfined and unfiltered, super low-yields, absolutely minimal sulphur and wines that are approachable on release and ridiculous value.

Additional Info

From The Producer

This wine is ‘atypical’ in terms of its blend: 50% Malbec (or Côt depending on the region) and 50% Cabernet Franc. Very concentrated yet possessing very soft tannins, this wine is rounded on the palate with red fruit aromas captured at the height of their freshness. All of this is elevated by Malbec’s peppery touch. Best drunk from now with dishes of all kinds apart from fish, serve slightly chilled at 17-18°C.

Organic and biodynamic since 2000. Demeter certification since the 2000 vintage. Double Guyot pruning, spontaneous winter grass cover. Soil tillage during the spring, every other row ploughed. Treatments combining small quantities of Bordeaux mixture with herbal teas such as horsetail or nettle.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
