Notes from Rosenthal Wine Merchants:

"Over the last few years, we have witnessed a small revolution among the vignerons in this historic region. Rising from the ashes of over-oaked, over-marketed, and often uninspiring wines, we find a group of thoughtful and talented individuals who are determined to bring terroir to a region that has almost entirely obliterated this ideal over the last few decades. 

Previous vintage notesHere the Pueyo family works 7 hectares of vineyards distributed among several parcels around Libourne. The average age of their vines is about 45 years. The 2014 is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet sourced from their best parcels.  Dense and savory, the fruit for the ’14 leans dark – hinting tightly wound blackberry and currant influences.  The wine is quite pure and fresh with little to no influence from the wood; there is an admirable purity to the ’14. It is young and structured with a brisk acidity and firm tannins, and is perhaps a bit wound-up. It could benefit from a quick decanting or, even better, a bit of time in bottle."
