Château Pey La Tour, Bordeaux, Bordeaux Supérieur – BKWine Pick

A biggish and well-maintained property with 170 ha of vines in the heart of Entre-deux-Mers. Since 1990 it belongs to the négociant CVBG-Dourthe-Kressman and they have put a substantial 4€M of investments into it. They have increased the planting density, lowered the yields, are monitoring water stress with GPS etc and all has contributed to improving the quality. According to Dourthe, the size of the property means that there are several different soil types and micro climate variations that contribute to the complexity of the wines. The wine is primarily made from Merlot – 82% of the vineyards are planted with that variety. In spite of the large volume, more than 1 million bottles, they maintain a very good quality, starting with the Bordeaux “tout court” for some 4€ to their Bordeaux Supérieur for around 10€.
