Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot.

The sustained color of the wine is highlighted with shades of crimson and orange suggesting the beginning of the wine's evolution. The nose is initially fruity but opens to lush ripe fruits mingled with aromas of toast and tobacco. The elegant palate is impressive but tight with dense and rich tannins, which is to be expected from such a hot vintage. The alcohol in the wine creates an impressive meatiness and leaves the palate with a soft sweetness. The powerful finish has a hint of acidity and promises to have excellent ageing in wood. This complete, rich and dense Bordeaux merits prolonged aging. Pairs well with pate or a nice hearty stew.

"Intense aromas of currants, spice and berries follow through to a full-bodied palate, with loads of fruit and a velvety finish. Lovely. Score range: 89-91"
-Wine Spectator Barrel Sample

The wine exhibits deep color and harmonious composition. This complete, rich and dense Bordeaux merits prolonged aging. Thanks to the quality of its production, Château de Pez is counted among the most highly reputed crus of the Médoc.

"...this keeps an impressive sense of balance with dense rather than superripe fruit, herbs, black currant jelly and delicious touches of new wood. Structred to age, with dry tannins and acidity. A great success."
-Wine Enthusiast 92 Points

"Exceptionnel An impressive performance by de Pez, this is a potent, cabernet-based wine, more formidable in this vintage than its classification would suggest. Underneath the oak, there's a cool forest-floor scent and concentrated fruit. It's fragrant and sophisticated, if not particularly fresh, with an elasticity to the tannins that gives it a lovely rounded shape. Probably best five to eight years from the vintage."
