Chateau Peybonhomme Les Tours Cotes de Blay 2012

I was first served this wine by a well known booze pimp in Brisbane, sufficiently interested by it that I sourced a bottle for further analysis.

Quite rare in Bordeaux, the grapes for this wine are grown following biodynamic practices.

I'd best describe it's intro as 'soft', with quince meeting kumquat meeting oxidative notes of bruised golden delicious apple, you know, the one that's been rummaging around in a kiddies backpack for a few days. It's delicate, subtle and intriguing.

In the mouth, it's at odds to that aromatic entrance: firm, mineral - a big mouthfeel with a phenolic edge, full and textural. Citrus lingers - a little suggestion of "driving over lemons". Concludes on a good length, yet not necessarily derived from flavour. 92
