Drink of the Week: Peybonhomme Les-Tours Côtes de Blaye


Today’s Drink of the Week, a sultry Côtes de Blaye from Château Peybonhomme Les-Tours, proves you don’t always have to overspend to get a great bottle from Bordeaux. Run by fifth-generation winemakers, the organic/biodynamic vineyard was built on a bed of limestone and clay soil in the Bordeaux region, meaning the wines have a solid mineral foundation to the flavor. From there, a bracingly dry, tannic depth is marked by herbal flavors like thyme and peppercorn, and sweetened by a tart black current-like acidity. It’s a refined wine perfect for enjoying any night of the week. $16, lincolnfinewines.com
