Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Château de Pez exhibits deep colour and harmonious composition. This complete, rich, dense wine merits prolonged aging.

Thanks to the quality of its production, Château de Pez is counted among the most highly reputed crus of the Médoc.

Critical Acclaim

"2008: Another sleeper of the vintage from this large estate (95 acres purchased by the owners of the Louis Roederer Champagne firm), the deep plum/ruby-hued 2008 De Pez possesses soft acids, low acidity, medium to full body and attractive plum, red and black currant, licorice and spice box characteristics. A blend of 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot, it should be consumed over the next 10 years."
89 Points

"Powerfully ripe wine, solidly based on a structure of dark tannins and dense black currant fruit. The wine has imprisoned power and density, needing several years for it to be set free."
89 Points
