Tasting Notes

Chateau de Pez is owned by the Champagne house Louis Roederer. Its Clarets are always rich, rounded and approachable in style. The wines from the estate tend to be dark in colour and have great length, body and distinction. Rich, full bodied, classic Claret with notes of blackcurrant and cedar.

Wine Making Notes

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. Vatting: 22-30 days. The wine undergoes absolutely no filtration. The wines of Château de Pez have an attractive tannic structure worthy of further ageing. They are sometimes referred to as the ‘Pomerols’ of St-Estèphe, in part due to the smooth roundness brought to the wine by the Merlot vines grown on the exceptional soils. They tend to be dark in colour and have great length, body and distinction and are best appreciated after 5+ years
