Extrait d'Haut Peyrat 2010
"The wine ""extrait d'Haut-Peyrat"" 2010 is a magnificent Haut-Médoc, incredibly harmonious and generous with an elegant taste. Issued from a plot selection, composed of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 13% Petit Verdot, it is presented in very limited production and only in certain years... A great Bordeaux wine with a bright, young, alert appearance that spontaneously calls out to you with its crimson red, carmine color and dense, deep, almost opaque texture. A silky, rich robe that lets us guess noble tannins, with an eye-catching, persistent and very tight structure, which tenderly, gently and elegantly flows along the glass. The bouquet is vinous, generous, ample, rich, with a remarkable aromatic concentration, while still having a restraint and a youthfulness that lets us imagine a beautiful future. We find very ripe red fruits, blackcurrant berries with the subtle nuance of its young leaf, black cherry, blueberry, ripe pomegranate, fig, black pepper, cedar wood, black tobacco leaf. Finally, a nuance of smokiness well integrated by some notes of Baccarat rose, in harmony with the fresh black truffle. On the palate, we find a generous amplitude, rich, full-bodied and well-structured, tannins present thanks to the prolonged maturation in high quality oak barrels. It is a wine of temperament, generous, juicy, pulpy and racy."
Les conseils de la maison
"The ""Extrait d'Haut Peyrat"" is a wine that presents an exceptional density and concentration. It can be drunk now but it deserves to be kept for 10 to 20 years to express all its qualities. If you wish to serve it now, it should be decanted 1 or 2 hours before drinking and served at 18°. This will soften the tannins and allow the bouquet to fully develop. This wine goes well with red meats, beef ribs, pepper steak, leg of lamb in the oven, venison, wild boar. At the end of the meal, with a Havana cigar just to savor it and keep its unique character and personality, even when young."
