K&L Notes

This is a property very close to Pauillac, and it's one to watch out for now, and in the future. These wines are well-made, value-driven, with good depth and length. Proprietor Patrick Bernard owns 50 hectares of gravel soils and with the aid of winemaker Xavier Michelet, produce elegant, silky, and vibrant wines that won't break the bank.

    This wine has quietly become a customer (and staff) favorite in recent years. Lovely aromatics of red and black fruits with notes of flowers and exotic spice. This graceful nose leads to as a dense palate of sweet and savory currant fruit with perfectly placed tannin. Excellent value!

    Following the success of the wildly popular 2009, 2010, and 2012 vintages, this petit chateau is now firmly established as a staff and customer favorite. The vineyards are happily situated on a mix of clay limestone and gravel soils in Saint-Sauveur, just west of Pauillac near Chateau Bernadotte. The 2016 Peyrabon is a blend of about two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon to one-third Merlot, with the addition of a small percentage of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Cabernet is king on the Left Bank in 2016, and you can sense the quality of the vintage in the lively acidity and fine tannins found here. There is plenty of sweet fruit, too, but without excessive ripeness. The wine exhibits only moderate alcohol and retains great freshness. Superb!

    And the value wines from the left bank keep appearing at very reasonable prices---so far. This wine is about 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and is located very near Pauillac in the North Medoc. We have never offered this wine on futures, but the 2016 is so good and we are selling many vintages of this wine over the last five years, I decided to offer it out. Spicy, very red berry dominated aromas that follow to the palate. So sweet and lovely and so reasonable in price at under $15.

    Tasted the first week of April. This has lively and lifted aromas of ripe red fruits that are an interesting counterpoint to the deep and rich middle. The aromas are inviting and the middle fruit ripe and fresh but the tight finish of powerful tannins show this to be a serious wine and a great value.
