AOC Côtes de Bourg Red
Château Puybarbe, a family estate owned by the Orlandi family since 1952, is perched on one of the highest hills of the village of Mombrier at the heart of the Côtes de Bourg appellation. Initially covering seven hectares, the vineyard has gradually grown in parallel with the family's efforts to plant the right grape varieties for the soil. A new chapter in the Château Puybarbe story began in 2000 when a new vatting room was built to enable the wines to be vinified and matured at the Château itself. The wines they yield are warm, complex and well structured, with tannins of great finesse.
A brilliant, sombre wine that holds the promise of great generosity. The bouquet is redolent of black-berried fruit and spices and incredibly fresh, with just a touch of earthiness. The rounded palate with silky tannins reveals expressive extract and great character. Lingering finish, offering fine aromatic intensity. A beautiful wine made by careful vinification, in an exceptional vintage.
A decidedly great wine, to be enjoyed with friends from 2017.
