Chateau Peyrabon Cru Bourgeois Haut-Medoc 2004, France
Buy this wine and tell your grandchildren you had some 2004. The ‘last affordable vintage’ for some collectors, it went mad in 2005. It was also in the fresher, cooler style of claret that I was introduced to in the 70’s and 80’s. Ready to drink but still with the fruit at its heart to cope with duck or beef. It’s now developing a lovely scent of cedar and leather that will continue to evolve for a few years.
