Chateau Pey la Tour benefits from one of the finest terroirs in the Bordeaux appellation. The wines produced at Chateau Pey la Tour owe their character to the soil type specific to the region and remarkable diversity of terroirs. The combination of soil-type, grape varieties, rootstock, age of the vines and separate vinifications and aging as led to wines of great character and complexity. The estate has achieved a reputation beyond its appellation as the model of a great, yet affordable, Bordeaux wine.
The chateau covers an impressive 142 hectares (58% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc). Since coming under the ownership of top négociant Dourthe in 1990 the Château has undergone a huge investment programme in both vineyards and winery. Michel Rolland is consultant here, and the wine spends 15 to 16 months in new oak barriques before release.
