Peter, Danish by birth, has certainly taken the road less travelled. He built a considerable reputation in Spain, settling there after having studied originally in Bordeaux. In Château Rocheyron, Saint Emilion Grand Cru, in partnership with wine aficionado Silvio Dentz, Peter has returned to his spiritual home with a unique opportunity to develop his longstanding love for Bordeaux.
Château Rocheyron is situated in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, just 3.6km from the centre of Saint-Émilion, on the edge of the celebrated limestone plateau. Peter is set on creating (or re-creating) a new norm - a return, in a sense, to the past but with all of the advantages of contemporary winemaking knowledge. He wants the wine to be as natural as possible and relishes in the advanced age of the vines, despite their limited yields. Farmed organically, Peter intends to move towards biodynamic disciplines, which is how he works in Spain. A firm believer that wine is made in the vineyard, this property is being run, in Peter’s own words, “like a First Growth” with meticulous attention to detail, rigorous vineyard management and ruthless selection.
