A fantastic garnet red color. An explosive nose exhibits some notes of fresh red fruits (red currant, Burlat cherry, and white fruits like pear). These flavors are accompanied by cocoa, liquorice and hearth. The attack is fresh, explosive and later, it reveals smooth and fine tannins. A beautiful freshness, a good length with notes of Morello cherry and caramel with milk.
Blend: 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

This shows much more clarity than the 2011. Aromas of currants, lead pencil and flowers. Blueberries, too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and beautiful fruit. This is a wine that shows finesse and structure for the vintage. Very polished and well made. Try in 2018.

The 2012 Château Pédesclaux is close to the 2011 qualitatively and is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, brought up in 75% new French oak (most vintages see 65% new oak). Cassis, toasted spice, graphite, and some pretty flower notes all emerge from this rich, nicely textured, balanced red that has fine tannin and outstanding length. It’s charming and has plenty of upfront appeal yet should cruise in the cellar for 15-20 years.

This has a brambly feel, with a cassis bush note running throughout. The core of succulent plum, blackberry and raspberry fruit is bright and defined. Shows lots of racy grip through the finish, complemented by buried minerality. An excellent effort and a real surprise; this has blossomed following the élevage. Best from 2018 through 2025.
