Natalie's Score: 90/100

From Vignobles Dourthe, an elegant mostly Merlot Bordeaux Superieur with ripe red cherry, plum, dark berry, meaty, dark chocolate and toasty oak flavours on the palate. Quite tannic right now, so hold in cellar for three years to mellow and to show its best.

Food pairings: prime rib roast rare, New York strip loin steak, Porterhouse veal chops.

Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Chateau Pey La Tour 2016 is a classic Bordeaux style wine that exposes charming aromas of red plum, raspberry, violet, black pepper, leather, vanilla and oak. Full-bodied with a spicy finish, Chateau Pey La Tour shows great balance and quality. Made from 88% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdo, this wine provides flavors of plum, fruitcake, bay leaf, truffle, baking spice, dark chocolate and cedar. Enjoy!
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Bold and powerful. Aromas of currant, plum, violet, cocoa and leather, with hints of spice. Full bodied, with vibrant acidity, and firm, grippy tannins, rich fruit hints, and some herbaceous and spicy hints and a hint of leather and oak on the finish. This wine would cellar quite well, but you can enjoy it now with an hour of decanting and a grilled steak.
From the Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux wine region, Château Pey La Tour Réserve Du Château 2016 is intense with dark cherry, blackberry and spicy aromas on the nose. So dark red it looks black in the wine glass, dry, juicy with very firm chewy tannins are the palate, but dark plum, dark berry, savoury herb and cedar spice flavours are peeking through the tannins. Hold in cellar for about three years to see how this wine evolves. - Community Wine Reviews
