  • Neal Martin, April 2022, Score: 89-91

    The 2021 Château de Pez, from an estate under the aegis of Nicolas Glumineau, has an attractive nose of blackberry, pencil lead and light tobacco scents. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grippy tannins. There’s a healthy pinch of black pepper here, along with good weight and a structured, saline finish. Fine. Drink 2025 - 2038

  • Wine Advocate, April 2022, Score: 90-92

    An elegant, seamless wine, the 2021 de Pez exhibits aromas of cassis, sweet berries and nicely integrated new oak, followed by a medium to full-bodied, lively palate that's supple and fleshy, with good depth at the core and a nicely defined finish. It's a blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot crafted by Nicolas Glumineau and his team from Pichon Lalande.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2022, Score: 89-91

    The 2021 de Pez is a potent, dense rich wine that continues a move towards a more serious style here. Whether that works over the long term is, in my view, an open question. There is plenty of intensity in the dark fruit, spice, leather and gravel flavors, but the style feels a bit forced to me. The 2021 is projected to spend 19 months in oak, 50% new. The en primeur samples were shown from new oak barrels only, so it will be interesting to see how things ultimately shape up. Time will tell.

  • Goedhuis, April 2022, Score: 91-93

    Made by the team from the great second growth Pichon Lalande headed up by Nicolas Glumineau who radiates excitement when he talks about this vineyard: “The potential is huge, the terroir is amazing, and it remains an unknown discovery”. 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, this wine bursts with flavours of Morello cherry and boysenberry. Very layered, with ripe fruit sitting alongside a pleasingly granular tannic core. A touch of mocha and dark chocolate gives a sweetness to the finish. Great length and lovely.

  • Wine Cellar Insider, April 2022, Score: 90-92

    Earthy clay and red fruits with touches of spice and leafy herbs on the nose lead you to a medium-bodied, earthy, chewy, savory, edged, dark red berry filled wine with an olive accent in the round, fruity finish. The wine blends 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. Drink from 2024-2035.

  • Jane Anson, April 2022, Score: 92

    Turmeric and sage spice, plenty of structure to cradle the bright, juice-filled raspberry, cassis, and blackberry fruits. This is a lovely wine. No chaptilisation.

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.
