Chateau Haut-Peyrous Graves Rouge Retour De Palombieres is immediately complex on the nose with red fruits, chocolate, violets and pencil shavings.

At 80m above sea level, the Haut-Peyrous estate is on the second terrace of the Garonne River, in the village of Mazère south of Langon, and 7km from the Garonne itself. Marc Darroze turned this estate over to organic farming in 2008 and the results are amazing in this second vintage. A blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc which saw a long maceration period without massive extraction. This brought finesse to the wine, while maturation in oak barrels for one year helped to refine the tannins and to make the wine more complex.
