Winemaker 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.

Chateau de Pez, France

Created in the 15th century, Chateau de Pez is the oldest domaine in Saint Estèphe. The Pontac family, who also created Haut-Brion, gave Pez its vineyards. The domaine was sold as a property of the state after the French Revolution and owned by a succession of families before it was purchased by Champagne Louis Roederer in 1995.

Chateau de Pez is located west of the town of Saint-Estèphe. The estate consists of 74 contiguous acres, with 54 acres under vine. The vineyard is situated on a high plateau with well-exposed slopes. From a summit of 59 ft. the land descends northward to 39 ft.

Chateau de Pez remains resolutely faithful to wood. The blend is composed in December and the wine is stored in barrels where it is racked every three months. After approximately one year, roughly midway through the maturation process, the wine is fined using fresh egg whites. The wine is matured in small oak casks with 40% new oak, 30% "Premier vin", 30% "Deuxième vin". It should be noted that the wine undergoes absolutely no filtration.
