The Hubert family settled at Château Peybonhomme-Les-Tours in the village of Cars near Blaye in 1895, and six generations have followed since.

The estate is located on a hill overlooking the estuary, with the vineyards on the slopes. From its 17th-century castellated tower, we have a spectacular panoramic view of the entire estate and the Gironde estuary.

A nod to Merlot... on vacation! A fruity, gourmet wine labelled a ‘Vin de France’ simply to avoid getting ‘caught up’ in increasingly restrictive wine administration which also tends to forget that winemakers primarily exist to produce wines that offer pleasure. Monsieur Merlot is the embodiment of this rebel inviting you to share the fruit of his labours. A beautiful colour, offering body on the palate but no tenacious tannins. Puts us in mind of some rustic and earthy Tuscan reds so maybe this is where Monsieur Merlot went on his holidays.
