Wine(s) tasted:
* Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours 2018 (tasted in January 2021): This vintage is purple wide-body wine. It offers strong perfumes of blackberries, blackcurrants, violets, cherries as well as alcoholic notes. The mouth is ample with a velvety power. There are aromas of cherries and blackberries with jammy sensations. I found also hints of tobacco, green pepper and spices.
* Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours 2005 (tasted in January 2010): Strong perfumes of black fruit jam (cherries, blackberries). In the mouth the fruits aromas are present with initially still a little woody and spicy flavors which gives it a little “rustic” side. It also has good texture and good length in the mouth. This is a wine which, despite the predominance of Merlot, is more powerful than elegant.
