2014 Pedesclaux 75CL
The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, plenty of black fruit laced with cedar and black pepper, though it does not quite deliver the complexity that I think the 2015 will on the finish. Still, it is a very capable vintage from the rejuvenated Château that is certainly going places in the same way that Pontet-Canet did in the 1990s. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
Just 45 years after the estate was founded, Pédesclaux saw its name carved in the stone of the 1855 classification. The status of fifth growth (‘Cinquième Cru’) it was awarded represented much more than a mere heritage – it also imposed stringent requirements for the future.
Two centuries after its birth, Pédesclaux is experiencing an unprecedented revival. Jacky and Françoise Lorenzetti set out on this adventure with the same passion that drives everything they undertake. Overhaul and expansion of the vineyard, construction of cellars designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte.
