Critic reviews
"Now certified organic, the 2022 Pedésclaux exhibits aromas of dark berries, plums and pencil shavings, followed by a medium to full-bodied, suave and refined palate that's a touch lean on the finish. As it fleshes out with élevage, it should come into better balance."
William Kelley, April 2023, RobertParker.com

"The 2022 Pédesclaux was picked 12 to 27 September and aged in 65% new oak. This has far more fruité than the Deuxième Vin, plush black cherries and boysenberry fruit, more floral in style with neatly integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chalky tannins, good tension, gentle grip with a graphite infused, powdery-textured finish. A hint of brine on the aftertaste. Very fine, though I would like to see it develop a little more sustain."
Neal Martin, April 2023, Vinous.com

"The 2022 Pédesclaux is terrific. It shows a level of finesse that has not always been present here. There's plenty of richness and power, but also better balance than in some years. Spice, leather, menthol, rose petal, licorice and a discreet touch of oak are beautifully woven together. This is a fine vintage for Pédesclaux."
Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Vinous.com

"Rich plum colour, vibrant edging, sleek and balanced, this is full of pleasure and precision. Generous in that you can feel the exoticism of the vintage in its ripe berry fruits but it has balance and the slate and liquorice character of Pauillac. 3.86ph, 37hl/h yield. 56% 1st wine in this vintage, first year organic certified (and the first classified estate to write this on the front label). Vincent Bache-Gabrielsen director. 65% new oak."
Jane Anson, April 2023, JaneAnson.com

"Lighter than the top growths but pure and precise. Deep colour, dark-fruit fragrance and well-worked tannins. Freshness as well and some length on the finish."
James Lawther, May 2023, JancisRobinson.com
