    The 2020 Château de Pez is one of the more aromatically fruit-driven Saint-Estèphes, presenting a nose of black cherries, raspberry and light blueberry scents, and hints of cedar and mint. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and real salinity and precision. A slightly powdery-textured, quite mineral-driven finish completes this superb de Pez. Tasted twice with consistent notes. Drink 2027 - 2045

    Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2020 de Pez skips out of the glass with lively notes of Bing cherries, fresh blackberries and blackcurrant pastilles, with suggestions of pencil shavings, wild thyme and damp soil. The medium-bodied palate is elegantly styled and refreshing, delivering intense red and black berry layers with loads of herbal sparks and a grainy texture, finishing long and savory. Drink Date 2024 - 2039

    The 2020 de Pez is a wine of somber intensity. Black cherry, scorched earth, gravel, incense, chocolate and dried herbs infuse the 2020 with striking layers of dimension. Powerful. Plush and wonderfully inviting, Pez has so much to offer. Quality continues to improve under the direction of Technical Director Nicolas Glumineau. The 2020 is gorgeous and promising. Drink 2028 - 2040

    51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot From the Pichon Comtesse stable and under the same management team headed by wine director Nicolas Glumineau, this excellent property is entering a new era. This has the perfect balance between St Estéphe profoundness and the feminine touch and caress of the house style. Sensual on the nose, violets, peony, and cabernet cassis. The initial impression is all elegance and grace, and then a punch of power evolves giving dimension and depth. A class act.

    A rather velvety Pez with plenty of tannins and aromas and flavors of ripe berries, walnuts and dried flowers. Some thyme, too. It’s medium-bodied with a bright, fresh finish.

    The spicy character is just great here. Instantly it adds character and complexity to the perfectly ripe, juicy, fresh, red fruits. Soft, round and inviting, the ripeness and energy in the red berries keeps on going from the mid-palate straight through to the finish.

    Impressive jammy red and blue fruits, candied violets, and tobacco notes all emerge from the 2020 Château De Pez, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a beautifully textured, silky mouthfeel, the ripe yet firm, polished tannins of the vintage, and a great finish. I love its purity as well as its length, and it will certainly be an outstanding, age-worthy Saint-Estèphe. Tasted twice.

    This is suave and showy de Pez and it is certainly performing at the top of its game in 2020. Spicy, dark, plummy and with decent tannic traction on the finish, there is lovely freshness throughout this wine which offsets the density of the flavour on the mid-palate. I have not seen a de Pez as spicy as this before.

Producer

Château de Pez

The two St Estèphe properties of Château de Pez and Château Haut-Beauséjour were purchased by Champagne Louis Roederer in 1995 and 1992 respectively. While the Champagne house has always been owned by the same family since its creation, the acquisition of the Bordeaux properties was above all due to Jean-Claude Rouzaud, oenologist and Chairman of Roederer. He has a true love for Bordeaux coupled with a strong desire to make top class wines using his expertise to develop the full potential of the vineyards.

Region

St Estèphe

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
