Peybonhomme 2019 Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux Le Blanc Bonhomme

(Wine arrives Jan 25, please allow 3 to 5 days before pick-up or shipping) This is the tenth vintage of the Hubert family's "Blanc Bonhomme"which seems to get better every year. The vines are now 15 years old, 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon,  certified organic and Biodynamic. The grapes are hand-harvested in the early morning, pressed gently, fermented with native yeasts and the wine is aged partly in new oak, mostly in cement vats. Only about 650 cases are made. The 2019 shows elegant pear, lemon, herbal and dried flower aromas, with pear, citrus and chalky mineral flavors on the palate. This shows the ripeness of the 2019 vintage, but with good freshness, and it really shows the terroir with crisp acidity, lovely white fruit, a hint of pineapple and oak and stony flavors in the finish. Really a lovely, balanced and food-friendly wine - serve with anything from oysters to grilled fish to roast chicken.
