Chateau Picoron is a 5 hectare vineyard located on the clay & limestone ridge, adjacent to Saint-Émilion. Founded in 1570 by the Picoron family, Château Picoron has a long history of wine. They produce limited production wines which celebrate the past, and inspire the next generation of wine drinkers. Chateau Picoron produce only 2,000 cases of wine per year for their friends & family. The winemaker, Stephane Apelbaum, believes nature to be our greatest collaborator, preferring a minimal intervention to vineyard management and winemaking. Chateau Picoron wine is produced sustainably and is on a journey toward organic farming conversion.

Chateau Picoron Saint Colombe 15′ has a purple colour with a hint of ruby. It is full bodied with lots of bold red and black fruit along with hints of vanilla, truffle and spice on the nose. Expect a perfect balance of blackberry, plum and strawberry. It is accompanied by well structured, rich tannins which have been further softened by the 16 months the wine has spent in French oak and a further 3 in the bottle. In the mouth you will experience lovely peppery undertones which keep it lingering on and on. This is a 100% Merlot and considered a very high quality red wine with ageing potential to 2030. This is one of my favourite red wines for 2022.

Pair with:  mild and soft cheese (Brie or Camembert and Charcuterie (sliced cured meat). Some Rod Stewart in the background will also work a treat.

Merlot is what the Right Bank of Merlot is synonymous with, yet Château Picoron are doing something truly unique. While they offer the classic Bordeaux style aged Merlot, they also produce 100% Merlot’s of both the white and rosé style, certainly not something you see everyday.
