Château Pey-Bonhomme Le Blanc Bonhomme 2016
Biodynamic. Le Blanc Bonhomme, the Domaine’s luminous, nonconformist white, has been superb in recent years. We missed out on the 2015, yet the new 2016 release is every bit as delicious. It’s an equal blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc drawn from a 3-hectare, biodynamic vineyard in Cars, close to the banks of the Gironde River. Guillaume Hubert's grounded, vineyard-focused approach results in a vibrant, unworked and racy white whose crunchy freshness and juicy texture reflects the limestone soils on which the wine is grown. The yields were very low in 2016, (24 hl/ha) and the grapes were handpicked, manually sorted and underwent a 24-hour carbonic period before being pressed into concrete vats and 40% old barrels. Here it completed its fermentation, carried out by indigenous yeasts only.
It all adds up to a simply delicious, mould-breaking white Bordeaux – and just to be sure no one misses the point, the family bottle it in a Burgundy-shaped vessel! The 2016 is a beauty; pretty floral, stone fruit and citrus aromatics lead to a pulpy, layered yet racy palate with ripe citrus, white nectarine and pear notes.
