Drinking Tonight - 2003 Chateau Peyreau

Never heard of or tasted anything from this estate, and this being a bottle from 03......ok, lets roll the dices!

2003 Chateau Peyreau
And I got lucky! This is a really nice, modern St Emilion with a upfront, juicy nose with notes of ripe plums, cedar, bonfire smoke, herbs and undergrowth. A nice warmth to it without being heavy or cooked. A fine backbone. Opens up nicely in the glass. Very good.
The taste is young and gulpable with lots of sweet plums and black currant with additional notes of new leather, scorched earth and herbs. The finish is long and nicely focused. This is giving lots of pleasure tonight, with a seared steak, oven potatoes and a Madeira sauce. Glad I have a couple of bottles, bought for 15 Euro per bottle...:)
