"Quintessence de Peybonhomme" Blaye-Côtes de Bordeaux '16

Hooray! Another favorite farm driven Bordeaux producer this month! The wine of Catherine and John-luc Hubert is produced in the ancient, land focused way (certified organic and biodynamic since 2000) and spoiler alert- the wines are incredible. Selection is made from the best tasting barrels each year.  This cuvée is made with a different blend every year but consistently features Malbec and Merlot.

Some of the cultivation in the clay-limestone vineyard includes double guyot pruning, spontaneous winter grass cover and - in lieu of pesticides-  treating the vines with small quantities of Bordeaux mixture with herbal teas such as horsetail or nettle. Only native yeasts in the cellar, no fining, and bottled on a Biodynamic calendar fruit day.

The result is luscious and hedonistic without being overwrought. Nose is dried plum and rich soil, with well integrated oak, this wine is structured but a plush fruit driven experience on the palate. A seriously inspiring wine to drink while you finally finish your novel. Pairings: braised lamb and cured olives or the classic… steak au poivre.
