Château Peyrat

Château Peyrat is a small property in the south of the Graves area, owned and run by Madame Cambillou.

About

Offering great value, Château Peyrat wears its heart on its sleeve. The sandy-gravel Graves soil, and the 25-year’s average age of Madame Cambillou’s vines make for a very respectable petit vin with plenty of vibrant, sweet red and black fruit, pepper and good stone minerality. Simple and fresh, this is traditional "lunchtime claret" in style, Merlot dominated and unadorned with oak. The blend is 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, matured in cement for 18 months.

The Graves is essentially where red Bordeaux originated so there is a long history of winemaking here. The Graves produced wine when the greatest properties in the Médoc today were as yet undrained marshland whilst here, as the name suggests, there is a preponderance of gravel so it is free draining. Although historically favoured by the British market, the area is today sometimes forgotten with the over simplification of Bordeaux as Right and Left Bank. Out of sight can mean out of mind for the market but this, in turn, can make for excellent value for these superb wines.
