Tasting Note: “Quite a bit of menthol cabernet sauvignon character on the nose, then a rather sleek, fresh palate with moderate tannins make this a rather easy St.-Estephe to enjoy. Some nice savory character on the clean finish. Drink now or in 2019 or 2020.” 90 points James Suckling
Producer: Created in the 15th century, Château de Pez is the oldest domain in Saint-Estèphe. The Pontac family, who also created Haut-Brion, gave Pez its vineyards. The domain was sold as a property of the state after the French Revolution and was owned by a succession of families before Champagne Louis Roederer purchased it in 1995.
