Brother and sister winemaking duo Rachel and Guillaume Hubert inherited Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours in 1997 and immediately introduced biodynamic practices.
Their bright, accessible Bordeaux has been a long running favourite for customers of my wine tasting business, not just for the high quality, but also the affordable price. It’s the only wine from my range that I do not have exclusivity over, but I have managed to keep the price competitive.
When I met with Rachel and Guillaume I was struck by the calibre of their wines across the full range. I'm proud to announce, for the first time in the UK, their "Vacances de Mr Merlot", a light and juicy take on this often dull variety.
Also, the Cuvée 2C: an atypical blend of Syrah (Rhone red grape) and Touriga Nacional (Portuguese red grape). Despite the tradition, Peybonhomme represents the changes that are afoot in Bordeaux and a large number of their wines are seeing a reduction in oak as they work more and more with amphora.
