In the vineyard

All work favorizing a good distribution and aeration of the grapes (disbudding, clipping, thinning out of leaves). Hand-picked sorting harvest according to the terroir, the vigorous zones and separation between stocks from the heart and the borders of our plots. Harvest in crates, followed by a manual sorting on clusters and then on berries.

Despite the extreme and warm weather conditions, 2022 surprises us with its balance and freshness. A unique blend of the best qualities from the last three great vintages of Pédesclaux, 2022 combines the energy of 2018, the concentration and freshness of 2019, and the linearity of 2020. An exceptional vintage, 2022 illustrates a rare depth of color, while the concentration and fleshiness of Merlot creates sapidity on the palate. The Petit Verdot imparts a floral touch and a notable tannic finesse, while the Cabernet Franc lends spicy notes and further enhances the depth of the wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully integrated, providing a certain dynamism and a strong Pauillac identity to the 2022.
