Chateau de Pitray PREMIER VIN 2016
|France, Bordeaux, Cotes de Castillon
|Chateau de Pitray
From a respected, family-owned property making good value wines, including this medium-bodied Merlot and Cab Franc blend. Fragrant and full in the mouth, showing dabs of pepper spice, dried herbs, with dark plum and cherry, finishing firm and long. Pair with black bean burgers for a vegetarian option, or with juicy dark meat turkey with gravy.
A concentrated wine from the Pitray family, who fought in the American Revolution, this has bold tannins and the potential for rich fruit. A powerful wine, it shows plenty of spice as well as ripe black-currant flavors and acidity. Drink from 2022.
