Chateau Pedesclaux 2007, Pauillac
Pauillac is situated in the heart of the Haut-Medoc and is arguably the most famous of the left bank appellations, not least because 3 of the 5 first growths are in the Pauillac appellation.

Description Wine Advocate #205 (Feb 2013 ) Robert Parker 89 points - Drink: 2013 - 2028 - This final blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc hit 13.5% natural alcohol.

Description and Reviews: *** 90 Points (Outstanding) - Wine Journal. *** Reviews: "Tasted single blind at Southwold. The nose is very closed - surly and backward. The palate is ripe, earthy with touches of black pepper. Firm tannins. Nice cohesion, backward and still unresolved, but with a nice austere finish that leaves the mouth fresh. Certainly a very good Pauillac, but nowhere near the First Growths! Drink 2011-2020."
18.5 points out of 20, Decanter Magazine July 2008. Awarded maximum 5 stars. Very pure cassis. Hidden depths. Terrific intensity of flavour, power and length. Ripe fruit, supremely well-integrated tannin and acidity. No further discount wine.
