Fruity and spicy, this is a fine, attractively fruity wine. While it doesn't have great weight, it has a core of dry tannins and a dark structure that suggests good aging for the future.

Château de Pez, west of the commune of Saint-Estèphe, rivals Calon Ségur as the most ancient of all the Bordeaux vineyards. Its 39 adjoining hectares enjoy ideal exposures on the hilltops around the Château itself. Thanks to continuous investment, Château de Pez has been carefully renovated since it was acquired by the House of Louis Roederer in 1995. Today this great Cru Bourgeois is restored to its former glory and retakes its rightful place in the limelight as one of the shining stars of Saint-Estèphe.

The vineyard dominates a high plateau with well-exposed slopes. From a summit of 18 metres (59'), the land descends northward to 12 metres (39'). The soil is composed of one metre of Günzian gravel (deposited during the first period of glaciation during the Pleistocene epoch) overlying the calcareo- argillaceous bedrock of Saint-Estèphe. Ancient drainage ditches conduct runoff towards the roads surrounding the unit formed by the property.

The Château de Pez winery remains resolutely faithful to wood. The blend is composed in December, then the wine is stored in barrels (40% new wood, 40% in "Premier vin" casks and 20% in "Deuxième vin" casks) and racked every three months. It is to be noted that the wine undergoes absolutely no filtration.
