Tasting notes

The most confidential production since 2009 and with an assemblage similar to 2018, Château
Pédesclaux 2021 is considered very close to classic vintages and has great potential for storing. It is characterized by a deep and dynamic nose, with notes of small black fruits and spices. The mouth, deliciously juicy, is led by an incredible tension on the palate. Its supple, textured tannins and its sapid finish allow Château Pédesclaux to assert its unique identity.
