Château Pédesclaux 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac

The 40 hectares of Château Pédesclaux’s vineyards are located on the same gravel plateau overlooking the town of Pauillac as Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild and Pontet Canet. The château was created in 1810, by Mr. Urbain Pierre Pedesclaux, a well-known wine broker in Bordeaux. The blend is mainly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, evenly distributed, there is a small quantity of Cabernet Franc. ‘A solid core of cassis and blackberry fruit is liberally framed by dark cocoa and espresso notes and carried through the caressing, blueberry-, spice- and licorice-filled finish.’ 91, Wine Spectator’s note on the 2010 vintage.
