Château Peyreau, which borders on Clos de l’Oratoire, is located on the northeast slope of Saint-Emilion. Merlot is king on this late-ripening teroir.
Château Peyreau benefits from the same expertise and tailor-made attention as the other von Neipperg estates. The grapes are hand-picked and treated with utmost care. To enhance ripening, the harvest takes place plot by plot.
Fermentation occurs slowly and the wine stays a long time on the skins to reflect the best of vintage character and the terroir.
In keeping with this philosophy, Château Peyreau is aged in barrel for 12-18 months in barrels used for one or two previous vintages.
