After its lovely crimson-ruby colour with raspberry tints, Chateau Haut Peyruguet red reveals a nice powerful bouquet of red fruit scents with hints of flower, spice and mildish mint. On the palate, it is fleshly, rounded and fruity with fine, mature tannins and a lovely fresh finish. Has been selected by the Head Sommelier of La Trompette, The Goring and Swan Hotel.
Very juicy and inviting, with deliciously ripe notes of linzer torte, blackberry and crushed plum, laced with anise and toasted spice. The lively finish stretches out nicely.
Wine Spectator: James Molesworth 90/100
This wine is made up of the 13 different grapes varieties of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The (on average) 100 year old vines and the very low yield (between 10 and 15 hectolitres per hectare) means that only 2000 bottles of this wine are produced for each vintage. It has a red ruby colour, scents of aromatic red fruit and black cherries and a ripe palate with a long after taste. Limited number of bottles available. This 1990 is in my top free best wine list, very delicate and velvety. Has been selected by the Head Sommelier of Helene d'Arroze
Ripe red fruits, easy drinking. The best value for money natural wine. The "must have" in all natural wine bar. As all wines from the Cave d'Estezargues it is even better slightly child (14°C). Has been selected by the Head Sommelier of Hakkasan Mayfair.
