Description
Horeau-Beylot is one of the three oldest trading houses in Bordeaux. Run for 10 generations by the same family, the company has played in its history, a major role in the commercial and political life of Libourne and of the generic Bordeaux establishment. We have been working with them for three years and have been wowed by the outstanding quality and tyicity that their wines show. It's funny to talk about a "house style" as it can be impossible to pick one out, given that the wines are so terroir specific... however, we feel that there is a freshness and clarity in the handling of the fruit that allows that terroir to show through as well as for absolute enjoyment in the glass. Made to pair with food types of all kinds, these wines are a very happy addition to our collection.
