2015 Pédesclaux, Pauillac

SKU #1389941 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A rich and enticing nose, dark and brooding with sweet spices and bramble fruit touches. You can smell the ripe fruit and heat of the vintage. Plush tannins are offset by mouthwatering acidity on the palate - all in balance with a juicy core. Distinct power but there is also tons of freshness and an underlying minerality. Depth and layers of flavour with a slightly 'hot' finish, clearly a step up in terms of concentration and general structure after the 2014. Still, this would benefit from more time with lots more ageing potential. (GH) Inner quote mark (9/2022)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Currants and blueberries with hints of flowers and perfume. Stones, too. Full body, a dense center palate, layers of ripe tannins and citrus rind. Layered and structured. Plush. A very serious wine from this estate. Best ever? We will see. Try in 2022. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a juicy, fruity wine that's supported by dark fruit tannins. The black currant fruits are bright and crisp, while the structure is firm and the finish lignering. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

93 points Jane Anson

Outer quote mark A good quality wine that is well extracted and not overly pushed. It falls below the excellent 2016, but this is a lovely rich and alive Pauillac that has fresh, flexible tannins and lots to enjoy. It’s not overly exuberant at this stage but it’s clearly full of potential. 50% new oak. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Pédesclaux offers attractive red fruit laced with cedar, tobacco and autumn leaves on the nose, gently unfolding with aeration to reveal violet scents. The nicely balanced palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a fresh bead of acidity and a lilting tobacco and cedar infused finish. Very fine and one of the most approachable Pauillacs. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The first vintage made with Petit Verdot, the 2015 Château Pédesclaux (52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot) is deeply colored and has a rounded, sexy style to go with lots of cassis and black cherry fruit, notes of dried herbs, flowers, and tobacco, medium to full body, and sweet, silky tannin that emerges with more time in the glass. Drink this ripe, flamboyant Pauillac any time over the coming 15-20 years. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Pédesclaux is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in barrel, 60% new and 40% one year old. Medium garnet-purple in color, it has an earthy nose with dried herbs and garrigue notes over a core of red currants and black berries plus a touch of cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate is fine and fresh with juicy red and black fruits and a chewy finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)
