From the same Bordeaux house that brought us Châteaux Peybonhomme and La Grolet, they bring us this fun bottling. Even though Château Peybonhomme Les Tours began six generations ago in 1895, this generation begins with the union of two humans of different wine-related backgrounds. Jean-Luc Hubert descended from a long line of sailors who navigated the Gironde river utilizing “scow” boats to transport wine. Alternatively, Catherine came from a long line of winemakers, her great grandfather having acquired Peybonhomme in 1890. Both of their ancestors worked extensively with one another making and transporting wine, unbeknownst to them the union that would one day happen. The kids have grown and now assist in making beautiful, natural wines and following in their parents’ footsteps.
“Energies” is a surprising wine as it comes from 40 year old vines and matures for twelve months in amphorae. Its makeup is that of a classic Right Bank style with Merlot making up most of the wine. Production is just 4000 bottles. “Energies” can reside in the cellar for years or be drunk now.
