"A lovely deep red with some spice, currants and then cherry and blackberry. A palate of rich fruit, smoky hints and then a silky long finish."
Created in the 15th century, Château de Pez is the oldest domain in Saint-Estèphe. The Pontac family, who also created Haut-Brion, gave Pez its vineyards. The domain was sold as a property of the state after the French Revolution and was owned by a succession of families before Champagne Louis Roederer purchased it in 1995.
