Tasting Notes:

A chewy frame surrounds a core of bitter plum and black cherry fruit, while a prominent savory thread curls through the dusty, olive-accented finish. A bit rustic in the end. Drink now through 2016. 10,416 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Château de Pez has an attractive blackberry and cedar-scented bouquet, the oak nicely integrated here with hints of marmalade and orange peel in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin, a little forward and "flashy" in style, not complex but with decent depth on the slightly one-dimensional finish. I have a feeling this has more to offer down the line, hence the plus sign against my score. Tasted January 2016.

Tasting Notes:

Blackberry, blueberry and freshly sliced mushroom aromas follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Better in 2017.

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
