The 2015 Pedesclaux is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in barrel, 60% new and 40% one year old. Medium garnet-purple in color, it has an earthy nose with dried herbs and garrigue notes over a core of red currants and black berries plus a touch of cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate is fine and fresh with juicy red and black fruits and a chewy finish.
Tasted blind. Rich and spicy. Much more flesh than most of its peers. Proper wine.
The 2015 Pedesclaux is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. It has a pure and fragrant bouquet with incense, violet and iris all permeating the dark cherry and boysenberry fruit. As I noted from my review in barrel, it is not a huge nor powerful Pauillac, but it offers a disarming silky smooth texture, crisp acidity and a rounded, caressing finish that implies it will be more approachable than other Pauillac wines. This is a finely made Pédesclaux to enjoy over the next 15 to 20 years.
