A magnificent Magnum of this excellent Bordeaux red. Terrific texture and opulence, forward fruit, sweet tannin, and a lush personality are dense along with copious quantities of sweet berries, roasted coffee, underbrush, black currant, and black cherry fruit. Sensationally pure, textured, and full-bodied, this will be a flamboyant, showy offering in its youth, but it is capable of lasting 20-30 years.
Country Of Origin: France
Created in the 15th century, Ch�teau de Pez is the oldest domain in Saint-Est�phe. The Pontac family, who also created Haut-Brion, gave Pez its vineyards. The domain was sold as a property of the state after the French Revolution and was owned by a succession of families before Champagne Louis Roederer purchased it in 1995.

The Ch�teau de Pez estate covers more than 26 hectares. The wines are left to ferment in traditional oak vats before being blended, and left to develop for a period of 16 to 18 months in oak barrels, 40 percent of them new.

The Ch�teau 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 �deuxi�me vin� casks) and racked every three months. It is to be noted that the wine undergoes absolutely no filtration. The wines of Ch�teau de Pez have an attractive tannic structure worthy of further ageing. They are sometimes referred to as the �Pomerols� of St-Est�phe, in part due to the smooth roundness brought to the wine by the Merlot vines grown on the exceptional soils. They tend to be dark in colour and have great length, body and distinction and are best appreciated after 5+ years.
