Château Pierbone, Haut-Médoc 2014
Red Wine from France - Bordeaux
This is benchmark, old-school (in the best sense of the word) claret, displaying classic cabernet sauvignon bouquet. Modest in alcohol and delicious to drink, the palate reveals plenty of lifted, fresh bilberry and graphite fruit character and appealing, grainy tannin structure on the finish.

This 50-hectare cru bourgeois estate has been under the ownership of wine merchant Patrick Bernard since 1998. The odd thing here is that its vineyards are divided between the Haut-Médoc and Pauillac appellations. The 40 hectares of Haut-Médoc vineyards lie just a mile or so from the border with the Pauillac commune, and the 7 hectares of vines within the boundaries of Pauillac neighbour Châteaux Liversan and Ramage La Batisse.
The wines from the Haut-Médoc vineyards are mostly bottled as Château Payrabon while the wines from Pauillac are bottled as La Fleur de Payrabon. A second wine, Château Pierbone, is a cru bourgeois in its own right made from fruit grown in the Haut-Médoc appellation. Here the terroir is a mix of sand, gravel, clay and limestone planted with cabernet sauvignon (60%), merlot (35%), cabernet franc (3%) and petit verdot (2%).
Patrick Bernard put his money where his mouth is when buying this estate and has invested heavily to improve the vineyards and the winery. Picking is carried out both manually and by machine and vinification takes place in temperature controlled stainless-steel vats where malolactic fermentation occurs, before the wine is aged in French oak barrels.
