2017 Pedesclaux, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1357414 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This generous wine revels in its ripe Cabernet Sauvignon. It has firm tannins already fully integrated into the ripe blackberry fruit notes. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Lots of plum and cherry aromas with terracotta and crushed-stone undertones. Full to medium body. Tight and juicy on the palate. Round, firm tannins, yet really spicy and flavorful. Cloves and nutmeg. Hints of new oak. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is packed with rich ripe fruit, a supple texture and a burnished oak feel that adds character to the vintage without being overdone. What this estate has done successfully is work with the issues of 2017 and presented a wine that is slick and has polish. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark This estate has been on a roll of late, fashioning outstanding wine after outstanding wine, and the 2017 Chateau Pedesclaux is terrific. It reveals a vivid purple hue as well as perfumed notes of cassis, violets, and graphite. Incredibly elegant, balanced, and with silky tannins, it’s a classic Pauillac that’s already approachable yet will evolve for 20 years or more. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A fresh, unadorned style, with red currant, pomegranate and bitter cherry fruit flavors giving this a racy, slightly high-pitched feel up front. Shows a solid graphite edge through the fruit, revealing a good tug of earth at the very end, with lingering tobacco and chestnut echoes. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Pedesclaux is medium to deep garnet-purple in color. The nose reveals a stunning perfume of wilted roses, lilacs and Ceylon tea, over a core of kirsch, raspberry pie and warm blackberries plus touches of garrigue and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied, fresh and fragrant in the mouth, it has soft, easy-going tannins and a compelling iron ore note on the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Pédesclaux comes across just a little smudged on the nose, though it appears to gain clarity with aeration, light touches of mint infusing the blackberry and boysenberry fruit, quite refined in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, well judged acidity, smooth in texture with a little more depth on the finish than I discerned out of barrel. This is turning into a very fine Pauillac. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
