Tasting Notes:

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.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Château de Pez is a vineyard located across the road from Château Calon-Ségur, in the northern parts of Saint Estèphe. Traditionally one of the leading Bourgeois Supérieur wines of the Médoc, it is believed by some to deserve higher classification. In a 2003 Cru Bourgeois classification revision, it was listed as one of 9 Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnels. It has a reputation of consistently producing wine that is both inexpensive and good. In the 17th century, the château was owned by the Pontac family who also owned Château Haut-Brion. The wine was sold under the Pontac label in London before any other Médoc wine. Today the château is owned by the champagne house Louis Roederer since 1995. Coordinates: 45°15′30″N 0°47′23″W / 45.2584°N 0.7896°W / 45.2584; -0.7896
