2007 Château DE PEZ. Saint-Estèphe

Bin:  800

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

De Pez is located just west of the village of Saint-Estèphe, on a high plateau with deep gravel soils above a clay and limestone bedrock, typical of the area of Saint-Estèphe, known for powerful wines with a hint of stony earthiness on the palate

Grape variety:

45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot; matured for 18 months in oak (40% new oak)

Producer:

The domain of Pez, created in the 15th century, is, with Calon Ségur, one of the oldest in Saint-Estèphe. Bought by Louis Roederer in 1995 and now 30 hectares, 26 under vine. In June 2003 Château de Pez was re-classified as a ‘Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel’

Vintage:

A year for early-drinking

Maturity potential:

2011-2019

Old Bridge rating:

Typical of the area – solid and robust. The 2007 vintage gives it unusual approachability and drinkability

Food match:

Needs robust dishes to do it justice (unlike many clarets that work best with simple fare)
