Wine Enthusiast 92 - Peyrabon is owned by a branch of the Bernard family that also owns Domaine de Chevalier. This powerful, complex wine shows its pedigree. Dark tannins and ripe black fruits are all evidence of its aging potential. Drink from 2018.
Gilbert & Gaillard 88 - Garnet with youthful tints. Fresh, fruity, menthol-infused nose combining vegetal and mineral notes. Supple attack, soft, velvety palate. Aromatic power gradually increases in intensity. Polished tannins, smooth mouthfeel. Powerful. Keep for 3-4 years.
Wine Spectator - Light loam and charcoal shadings line a core of plum skin and macerated blackberry fruit. A loamy edge lends a slightly chewy twinge to the finish. This has put on a bit of weight since the barrel tasting.
Wine Advocate - Dark ruby/purple with a decent attack of red and black fruits and earth, this wine quickly narrows out on the palate. It has medium body, light tannins and modest levels of extract. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
This ruby-tinted bright red coloured 2012 Haut-Medoc Cru Bourgeois is quite open on ripped fruits and cinnamon notes. On swirling, it reveals floral and menthol aromas. On the palate, the 2012 Chateau Peyrabon offers a frank attack that foreshadows a good potential. The attack leads to fleshy and delicious tannins. On finish, a quite marked freshness tightens the tannins.
