Chateau Pedesclaux 2019
In the unfolding story of Chateau Pedesclaux, 2019 is a vintage that will stand out for its combination of superb fruit and multiple layers of flavor – all thanks to the Cabernets that thrive so beautifully on the legendary gravel terroir of Pauillac. Ten years after the Lorenzetti family bought the property, 2019 will also mark the beginning of Chateau Pedesclaux’s conversion to organic farming.

|Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Pedesclaux has a beguiling perfume of violets, warm cassis, preserved plums and licorice with suggestions of rose hip tea, dark chocolate, kirsch and cinnamon toast. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with vibrant black and red fruits, supported by ripe, finely grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and fragrant. Gorgeous wine—bravo!|
|James Suckling: 91|
|A medium-bodied red with an attractive core of ripe fruit. Medium body and firm tannins with currants, walnuts and hints of tobacco. Medium finish.|

|A gorgeous wine, the 2019 Château Pédesclaux shines for its pure, elegant, yet concentrated style, and it's certainly one of the finest vintages from this address. Cassis, black cherries, lead pencil, and violet notes all emerge on the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, elegant mouthfeel, ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish. The purity and finesse are truly something here, and while it already offers pleasure, it deserves 4-5 years of bottle age and will evolve for 20+ years.|
