Description

Château Veyry 2012 is perfectly poised, combining power and depth of fruit with minerality and freshness – this is a great vintage from the talented winemaker, Christian Veyry. It was purchased in its original cases.

Veyry is a garage wine – a term used to describe production that could fit into a garage. It is also literally a garage wine, comprising a battered old garage housing two battered old Citroens and disguising a small high-tech winery!

Its secret combines the genius of Christian Veyry with 4 hectares of south-facing vines that are a direct continuation of the limestone ridge upon which the great Saint-Émilions are based. And Château Veyry is certainly in the same rich vein as this classic Bordeaux style, without the price premium of its more famous neighbours. Remarkable wines from an unremarkable shed.

This excellent wine from one of the oenologists who works for Michel Rolland is quite concentrated, dense in color, and powerful in 2012. There is certainly a big percentage of Merlot in the final blend, but the wine is beefy, rich, medium to full-bodied, and rises well above the average level of quality achieved in 2012. This pure, rich, textured sleeper of the vintage is capable of lasting another 7-8 years.
