Chateau Les Tours De Peyrat "Villes Vignes" 2005 review by (PB)
Black cherry hue with creamy milk chocolate base with bold plum and a hint of pine pitch.
Palate--A bit of a thin mouth feel with a cedary foundation and a firm tannic structure. Austere blackberry fruit finishes with smoke and is a touch rustic.
This Grand Vin De Bordeaux--a Premieres Cotes De Blaye--is 80%Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Malbec. $13 is a good price on this wine and drinks better than my review but needs a couple more years. Never-the-less, raise a glass.
