2020 Château de Pez  (St. Estèphe) 92

The spicy character is just great here. Instantly it adds character and complexity to the perfectly ripe, juicy, fresh, red fruits. Soft, round and inviting, the ripeness and energy in the red berries keeps on going from the mid-palate straight through to the finish. 91-93 Pts

2019 Château de Pez  (St. Estèphe) 93

Flowers, spice, wet earth, cigar box and black currants on the nose work perfectly with the round, medium/full-bodied, rich wine on your palate. The blast of spicy currants and espresso on the mid-palate and finish makes this a stellar vintage for de Pez. The wine blends 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot reaching 14.3% alcohol. 92-94 Pts

2018 Château de Pez  (St. Estèphe) 93

Wet earth, spice box, tobacco, cedar and currants create the nose. On the palate, the wine is round, lush and fresh. Soft, with ample sweet, dark red fruits and a peppery kick in the back end, give this 4-6 years in the cellar before it is fully ready to go. The wine blends 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. 93 Points

The darkest color ever seen at de Pez! From there it takes just a single sip to know this is a special wine. The fruits are just as dark as the hue which produces a generous, fleshy, ripe, full-bodied wine. The black cherries come in sprays before the spice, cocoa, espresso, licorice and vibrancy kicks in. Energy and elegance is here in spades. The wine blends 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. 92-94 Pts

2010 Château de Pez  (St. Estèphe) 89

Coming along, the wine needs more time for its crisp, fresh, cassis and red plum profile, spice, earth and tobacco can develop. At the moment, the tannins remain a bit firm. Give it time or air. 89 Points

Chocolate covered blackberries, cassis, earth, and truffle make up the aromas. This sweet, rich, round wine ends with a mouthful of chocolate covered cassis. This is the finest wine I've ever tasted from de Pez. 91 Points
