Winemaker's Notes

Tasting: Deep crimson red in appearance, virtually opaque at the center of the glass. On the nose, the first impression is of wooded notes, followed by the rich aroma of ripe summer fruits (black currant and cherry.) On the palate, the wine is a harmony of strength and finesse, already striking in its great suppleness. Dense, substantial, with well-rounded, almost velvety tannins. The fragrance of summer fruits conferred by the exceptional ripeness of the year dominates the tasting and lingers once the wine is swallowed.

The 1997 vintage is a fine example of the delicate, silky properties traditionally attributed to Château de Pez soil. Somewhat surprisingly perhaps, this young wine is ready for tasting now.
