About Château Peyrat

Many of our customers will know and love Grande Maye, which has for many years been like a house claret to us. Paul Valade’s Cote de Castillon estate is testament to what can be done in this often overlooked appellation. This is a high quality, serious estate and as further proof, Paul has started producing a second label called Chateau Peyrat. Although this is Paul’s entry level wine, it shares many of the same characteristics of both the Grand Vin and his new St Emilion estate. Rich, lush and exceptional value for money.

Appellation: Côtes de Castillon

These are Merlot based wines, sometimes with Cabernet Franc, that betray a fleshiness and sturdiness that can be drunk 1-5 years after the vintage. The region is named after the town of Castillon-la-Bataille, the battle that brought an end to the hundred years war.

Grape Blend: Merlot | Cab. Franc

Cabernet Franc with its unique herb infused red berry fragrance, adds backbone and acidity to the sensual, round favours of Merlot. This is as tried and tested combination used in the vast majority of serious St Emilion and Pomerol blends.
