Peybonhomme-Les Tours, L'Amour du Risque 2021Regular price $30.00 Save $-30.00
Variety: Cabernet Franc
From the same Bordeaux house that brought us Château La Grolet. 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.
This wine means “the love of risk.” If you take one of Peybonhomme’s signature grape varieties, the Cabernet Franc, and make it into a natural sparkling wine using only the residual sugar from the grape, you will have something delicious that took a little risk to get there. A wave of risk if you will.
