Winemaker's Notes

This cuvée is produced in small amounts and is sourced from old vines of Syrah near Côte-Rôtie. Its name recalls the variety of peach trees once planted on this plot Mayflower. Wine with deep flavors of green pepper, black cherry, game and spices that wrap around a soft texture, balanced, mature, persistent and always fresh.

Critical Acclaim

"Inky purple. Smoky dark berry and cherry aromas are complemented by vanilla, black pepper and floral oils. Smooth and expansive, offering sweet black and blue fruit flavors with a touch of black tea. Closes smoky and long, with building spiciness and smooth tannins."
