Château La Peyre, Saint-Estèphe 1996

La Peyre 1996 #2

Fullish ruby.  Old-school Bordeaux with a metallic sheen: succulent black cherries, tincture, wild-mint and a deliberate gravel-salt minerality.  Classic lines, no rusticity and complex enough to ponder: an honorable Saint-Estèphe.  Now – 2016.
