2019 Chateau de Pez '2nd de Pez' Rouge Saint-Estephe
Winemaker Notes: Nose of small red fruits (wild strawberry) and spice (clove). The palate is harmonious, fresh and sappy. A precise finish revealing grainy tanins. Notes of tobacco, strawberry and red currant.
Founded in the 15th century, Pez is the oldest domaine in Saint-Estèphe. The Pontac family, then-owners of Château Haut-Brion, gave Pez its vineyards. The property remained in the hands of descendants until the French Revolution. Sold as a property of the state, the domaine belonged to a succession of families until 1995, when it was purchased by Champagne Louis Roederer. Château de Pez is one of the oldest properties in Bordeaux’s Left Bank and consists of 118 continuous acres with 103 acres planted to prime grape varieties, mainly merlot and cabernet sauvignon. Thanks to the quality of its production, Château de Pez is counted among the most highly reputed crus of the Médoc and was reclassified as a Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in 2003. Elegant and modern, Pez 2nd is produced sustainably from the young vines of Château de Pez.
James Suckling - "This is nicely crafted with extra-fine tannins that are fresh and polished. Good fruit and length. It’s medium-bodied with finesse. Pretty second wine. Try after 2026.”"
