A bright ruby-red in colour. An expressive nose of blueberry, blackberry and sloe with earthy, mineral notes. On the palate, rich and generous with further ripe black fruit flavours and a juicy acidity. The tannins are evident but well integrated leading to a surprisingly soft and round finish.
The 17-hectare Domaine du Pech was founded 1978 by Daniel Tissot and is located on the slopes of Sainte-Colombe-en-Bruilhois of northern Gascony, on the south-eastern border of AOC Buzet. The estate is run strictly along biodynamic lines, only natural yeasts are used and yields are eye-wateringly low. 'Le Pech Abusé' is a blend of 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and spends three years in old oak casks before release.
