Natalie's Score: 89/100

This is a value-priced wine from the remarkable 2006 vintage for Bordeaux. It's rustic and robust with aromas of wild tiny cherries and raspberries. There's some attractive smoke and dried herbs on the finish. I find this wine is more full-bodied than medium, but it's not heavy. Great for hearty meat dishes.

Food pairings: hardy meat stews, Salisbury steak, sausage cassoulet, tortiere.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A good value Bordeaux - medium bodied with an earthy nose, typical - and offering layered flavors of raspberry, plum, cherry, spice, earth, smoke and leather.
L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby with a pronounced nose and aroma of blackberry and dark cherry. Aromas of leather, tobacco and cedar were also noted as well as a faint rose. Full bodied with medium tannin and acidity; mature cheddar enhanced the berry/cedar taste. An excellent sipper or food wine.
Great price point on this Blaye Côtes De Bordeaux. Château Peymelon (2006) -- an matured, full-bodied red with some lift. Look for wild cherries, raspberries on the palate, wrapped up with pepper and smoke. - Community Wine Reviews
