About the producer: Château Pédesclaux
Château Pédesclaux is one of Bordeaux’s most exciting stories. Located between Ch. Mouton Rothschild and Ch. Lafite Rothschild in Pauillac, the estate was founded after the French revolution by Urbain Pierre Pédesclaux who built the estate’s reputation before it was granted the classification of Fifth Growth in 1855. Since 2009, it has been in the hands of Jacky Lorenzetti, part owner of the well-respected Ch. D’Issan, who acquired some top rated Pauillac’s parcels, built a state-of-the-art winery and hired the services of eonologist Eric Boissenot. His goal is to make Pédesclaux a top fifth growth competing directly with Pontet-Canet and Lynch-Bages. Enormous investment and dedication have significantly boosted the quality of their wines, while prices have stayed within reach so far. View our selection.
