2020 Pedesclaux (Pauillac)

Media Reviews

Jane Anson

Appealing graphite and black cherry notes on the aromatics, a little subdued once you hit the palate, elegant, juicy, really needs time in the glass, fennel, those lovely wild herbs that add an extra dimension and kick, has persistency but is a little short. Juicy on the finish. Could move upwards in score after ageing. 93 points

Neal Martin

The 2020 Pédesclaux clearly possesses more complexity and terroir expression than the Deuxième Vin, featuring pressed iris and violet intermixed with blackberry and blueberry scents. There is an underlying mineralité/crushed rock note in the background that lends tension. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. Saline and marine influenced, this is more sapid than maybe the previous two vintages, though it would benefit from a little more elegance and precision on the finish. But overall, this is a fine Pauillac. 90-92 points

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW

Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Pedesclaux charges out of the gate with energetic notes of crushed blackberries, black raspberries and ripe blackcurrants, followed by suggestions of menthol, aniseed, violets and cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate quivers with vibrant, crunchy black and red berries layers, framed by firm, ripe tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long and deliciously savoury. 92-94+ points

James Lawther MW

Finely scented nose with dark fruit and subtle vanilla oak to the fore. Pure and precise on the palate, the fruit at perfect pitch, the tannins finely honed. Cool and fresh with a saline edge on the finish. Lacks the power of top Pauillac but sleek and well defined. 16.5 points
