Château Queyron Pindefleurs is located in the Saint-Emilion appellation in Bordeaux. It has belonged to the Fillon family since its creation in 1937. Since 2010, Chantal Watts and her husband, Peter, manage the 14 hectares of vines. The vineyard is cultivated on a clay-limestone soil and deep gravelly soils.
Château Queyron Pindefleurs 2009 is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru and the first vintage to have been vinified at the Château. It is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a small proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon. After the manual harvest, each plot is vinified separately in cement vats. Aging lasts between 12 to 18 months in French oak barrels.
"A deep purple colour with notes of toast and nutmeg on the nose. This is round and generous on the palate with velvety tannins and a long rich spicy finish. "
