Chateau Peybonhomme-les-tours
Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours is home to fifth generation growers Catherine and Jean-Luc Hubert. And while the family has been long associated with Bordeaux, their approach to winemaking is nowhere near as traditional as their contemporaries, instead focusing on crafting brilliant value money wines that are best enjoyed young and fresh.



The estate is very much a family affair for the Hubert’s – along with their son Guillaume, they farm the estate and make the wines themselves, and represent the largest certified bio-dynamic estate in the Côtes de Blaye.
Bordeaux
Bordeaux produces some of the most highly sought after and revered wines in the world. Located close to the coast, in the south-west of France the town and is divided by the Gironde River. Wines to the west of the river are referred to as left bank, and are Cabernet dominant. To the East of the river, on the right bank Merlot is the dominant grape variety. Throughout the 57 appellations, over 10,000 wine-making châteaux grow the red grapes; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. These are commonly blended and collectively referred to as clarets. Smaller amounts of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc is also grown in Bordeaux.



In 1855, due to the high export demands of Bordeaux wines, Emporer Napoleon III requested an official Bordeaux classification system, based on market costs of the wines at the time. The Chateaux were classified in to five ‘growths’ from first growth to fifth growth and cru Bourgois. Also in 1855 The Sauternes and Barsac classification covered the sweeter wines, with Chateau d’Yquem the only Superior First Growth, followed by Premiers Crus and Deux Deuxièmes Crus.
