Critic reviews
"The 2014 Pédesclaux has a tightly wound bouquet with redcurrant and crushed strawberry fruit, cedar and cigar box aromas filtering through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, plenty of black fruit laced with cedar and black pepper, though it does not quite deliver the complexity that I think the 2015 will on the finish. Still, it is a very capable vintage from the rejuvenated château that is certainly going places in the same way that Pontet-Canet did in the 1990s. Tasted twice with consistent notes."
Neal Martin, March 2017

"The 2014 Pédesclaux has a pinched bouquet that even after aeration does not really shine, certainly not like it did just after bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit that sport quite a strong marine-like/brine influence, almost Saint Estèphe in style towards the tertiary, slightly brutish finish that needs a couple of years to calm down. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting."
Neal Martin, February 2018

"The 2014 Pédesclaux is a very pretty, open-knit wine. Succulent dark cherry, mint, plum, smoke and leather, along with silky tannins, give the wine its soft contours and pleasant, up-front personality. The 2014 is a bit one-dimensional but quite attractive. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later. The blend is 53 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 47 % Merlot. In 2014, the harvest took place between September 30 and October 17 at Pédesclaux's brand-new facility, which features state-of-the-art equipment. The 2014 saw 60 days of skin contact - very long by any measure - with malolactic fermentation in barrel."
Antonio Galloni, February 2017

"Tasted blind. Slightly greyish crimson. Slightly sweaty, sweet with the tannins a bit rasping on the finish. Not bad but with a little heat on the end."
