The Chateau de Pez winery remains resolutely faithful to wood. The blend is composed in December, then the wine is stored in barrels (40% new wood, 40% in "Premier vin" casks and 20% in "Deuxieme vin" casks) and racked every three months. It is to be noted that the wine undergoes absolutely no filtration. Chateau de Pez exhibits deep color and harmonious composition. This complete, rich, dense wine merits prolonged ageing. Thanks to the quality of its production, Chateau de Pez is counted among the most highly reputed crus of the Medoc. Despite all of the surprises, fears and doubts, 2015 turned out to be a remarkable vintage. The growing cycle took place in perfect conditions up until some extremely dry weather in July, leading to worries over low yields. The rain and associated fungal diseases that we usually fear turned out to work for us from mid-July to mid-September, enabling the vine to reach optimum ripeness levels. The wines are distinctive and exceptionally precise yet also dense and restrained. They remind us of the extremely dense yet ethereal Bordeauxs of the 1980s, with an excellent ageing potential yet able to be enjoyed in their youth.

Under the same Rouzaud family ownership as Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande in Pauillac, this estate has produced a structured wine. It offers dense and solid tannins, rich with a firm texture and black currant fruits. The wine has weight and density that need aging. Drink from 2026.
