Description

The depth and complexity of a Pauillac Grand Cru Classé

The 10th vintage by the Lorenzetti family, 2018 also marks the birth of an exceptional vintage for Château Pédesclaux, the magnificent Grand Cru Classé of Pauillac.

2018 was characterised by intense episodes of rain, which resulted in strong mildew pressure. The excellent location of Château Pédesclaux near the Gironde estuary, nevertheless, helped the estate fight off the attacks of mildew, by helping circulate masses of air. With a conversion begun in 2012, 50% of the Château Pédesclaux vineyard is now cultivated by means of organic and biodynamic agriculture.

The beautiful summer with plenty of sunshine lasted until harvest, allowing for fantastic fruit: small grapes with a high concentration of aromas and beautiful tannins. The harvest began on September 25 and ended on October 12, fully revealing the personality of each variety.

The Grand Vin of the estate, the Château Pédesclaux 2018 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (64%), complemented by Merlot (27%), Petit Verdot (4%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).

At the tasting, the Château Pédesclaux 2018 presents a beautifully intense garnet red colour. The aromatic bouquet is quite powerful, revealing gorgeous black fruit notes, elegant citrus and spices, punctuated with delicate floral fragrances, especially violet. On the palate, the wines seduces with its richness and smooth texture, structured by round and silky tannins. The wine retains a great freshness and a beautiful vivaciousness on the palate, stretching forth into a mouthwatering finish of great elegance. A perfectly executed vintage for Château Pédesclaux, announcing the birth of another great year.
