About This Wine
The blend is, give or take, an atypical 50% Malbec and 50% Cabernet Franc - hence the Vin de France designation and the name of the wine. Drawn from Peybonhomme's biodynamically-certified, limestone and clay soils in the Premières Côtes de Blaye (on the right bank overlooking the Gironde estuary), the vines that produce this cuvée are now 40 years old. As above, the wines are wild yeast fermented, but L'Atypic is raised entirely in concrete (and bottled unfiltered). Flowing with the ripeness of the vintage, there are oodles of blackberry and macerated cherry fruit interwoven with dark, inky crushed spiced notes and a welcome, mouth-watering freshness to close. Fabulous purity of fruit and super easy to drink, this is a supple, energetic, left field Bordeaux at a bargain price.
