Château La Fleur Peyrabon is made from 7 hectares of vines on sandy-gravel top soil on clay-limestone sub soil that lie within the Pauillac Appellation. In autumn 2005, 2 hectares of vines were purchased, ideally situated between Château Lafite-Rothschild and Château Mouton-Rothschild in the commune of La Lande de Berret. Of this, the 1.10 hectares that were planted over 15 years ago will certainly go into the final blend of La Fleur Peyrabon 2006.

As with the majority of Left Bank Bordeaux wines, Cabernet Sauvignon is the dominant grape variety. At the end of the replanting programme, the vineyards of La Fleur Peyrabon will be made up of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot.

Vineyard density is between 6,500 and 8,500 vines per hectare and the average age of the vines is 20 years. Picking for La Fleur Peyrabon is entirely by hand and the wines are matured for an average of 14 months in oak barrels, 50% of which are new.

Château Peyrabon
The earliest mention of the property is in 1766, when Château Peyrabon appeared on the map of the Médoc, drawn up by the French king’s cartographer, Pierre de Belleyme. At the time, it was listed as a wine-growing estate in the village of Saint-Sauveur en Médoc.

Château Peyrabon has changed hands many times over the centuries but one owner who certainly left his mark on the property was Arnaud Armand ROUX, who took ownership in 1865 and succeeded in raising the profile of the property considerably, by the unorthodox marketing method of only making the wines available to family and friends. The labels proudly announced the wines were ‘never sold commerciallyE

Château PeyrabonAnother notable occasion during Monsieur Roux’s ownership was at the end of the 19th century, when one of his friends, the English Queen, Victoria, no less, attended a concert at the château given in her honour.

Among other notable proprietors were the Counts of Courcelles, who did much to put the property on a firm footing and consolidate its reputation in the early part of the 20th century and later by the Babeau family, who owned the château from 1958 to 1998. Over those 40 years, they :
replanted almost the entire vineyard, which had been devastated, like countless other Bordeaux properties, by the great frost of 1956 and had lost the majority of its vines.
expanded the estate by the judicious purchase of land from neighbouring Château Liversan. The additional 15 hectares of vineyard on clay-limestone soil provided perfect plots for growing Merlot grapes, complementing Peyrabon’s own terroir of gently-rolling, gravelly soil that is ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon.
In 1998 Peyrabon was purchased by Bordeaux-based wine merchant, Millésima, which is Europe’s leading direct-mail retailer of fine wine.
