Winemaker Notes

The wine is elegant with a fine balance and soft tannins, not typically rustic and masculine like other St. Estèphe wines. It is aged in wood (40% new oak) for 16 to 18 months.

Critical Acclaim

RP 89
The Wine Advocate

Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. The Château de Pez 2007 is a little simple on the nose with notes of tar, dark berries and cold tea. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy red-berried fruit, a dash of white pepper, cedar and tobacco, quite harmonious thought missing some depth towards the finish.

Chateau de Pez, , France - Bordeaux
Chateau de Pez
Created in the 15th century, Château de Pez is the oldest domaine in Saint Estèphe. The Pontac family, who also created Haut-Brion, gave Pez its vineyards. The domaine was sold as a property of the state after the French Revolution and owned by a succession of families before it was purchased by Champagne Louis Roederer in 1995.

Château de Pez is located west of the town of Saint-Estèphe. The estate consists of 74 contiguous acres,... View More

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
