2020 Pédesclaux, Pauillac 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1545154 95-96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very chewy with dusty tannins and blackberry and blueberry character. Some chocolate, too. Full and layered. First year with organic farming. A nice step-up in quality. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark I loved the 2020 Château Pédesclaux, which shows the fresher, more focused, vibrant style of the vintage while still bringing good depth of fruit and texture. Cassis, blueberries, violets, tobacco, and chocolate notes all emerge from the glass, and this beauty is medium to full-bodied, with a pure, focused mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's not massive, and I'd like more breadth, yet its purity and precision are terrific. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Pedesclaux charges out of the gate with energetic notes of crushed blackberries, black raspberries and ripe blackcurrants, followed by suggestions of menthol, aniseed, violets and cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate quivers with vibrant, crunchy black and red berries layers, framed by firm, ripe tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long and deliciously savory.

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Appealing graphite and black cherry notes on the aromatics, a little subdued once you hit the palate, elegant, juicy, really needs time in the glass, fennel, those lovely wild herbs that add an extra dimension and kick, has persistency but is a little short. Juicy on the finish. Could move upwards in score after ageing. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Pédesclaux clearly possesses more complexity and terroir expression than the Deuxième Vin, featuring pressed iris and violet intermixed with blackberry and blueberry scents. There is an underlying mineralité/crushed rock note in the background that lends tension. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. Saline and marine influenced, this is more sapid than maybe the previous two vintages, though it would benefit from a little more elegance and precision on the finish. But overall, this is a fine Pauillac. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2021)
