Tasting Notes

This Fifth Growth estate is on its way up! Long considered an under-achiever, the estate has really started to turn around since Brigitte and Denis Jugla took command in 1996--focusing their energy on quality. The 2005 vintage is a beacon of the estate's potential. It may be THE great value of the vintage. It was rated 18/20 points by Decanter Magazine and given five stars, the highest rating of all the vintage's Pauillacs (and scored on par with Mouton-Rothschild): "Very pure cassis. Hidden depths - unevolved but self-assured. Terrific intensity of flavour, power and length. Ripe fruit, supremely well-integrated tannin and acidity. A baby. Drink from 2015." A blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 45% merlot and 5% cabernet franc. K&L's Bordeaux Buyer, Clyde Beffa Jr says: "The best I have ever had from Pedesclaux. Perfect balance and sweet palate impression. Slightly New World but together and delicious. Great cellar candidate. Finally a great Pedesclaux!"

    Here is one for the cellar. Try this against Mouton 2005 in 10 years. This perennial underachiever has finally achieved!. Rich and round. My barrel notes-.

    Drink from 2011 to 2020
