Château de Pez 2009

$72.10

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.

Château de Pez exhibits deep colour and harmonious composition. This complete, rich, dense wine merits prolonged ageing.

Grape varieties:- Merlot Noir: 48%- Cabernet Sauvignon: 45%- Cabernet Franc: 4%- Petit Verdot: 3%- Malbec: 1%

Description

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.
