Château Pédesclaux - Pauillac

Château Pédesclaux is a wine estate located in Pauillac in Gironde. Part of AOC Pauillac, it is classified cinquième grand cru in the official 1855 Bordeaux wine classification.

What is the specificity of Château Pédesclaux?

The history of the Château began in the 19th century when Urbain Pierre Pédesclaux bought plots of land put up for sale during the Revolution. The Château then passed from hand to hand until Julien Jugla became the owner in 1950. At that time, the estate was no longer able to produce wine. As a result, Julien Jugla undertook renovation work in order to put the vineyard back on its feet.

The estate became the property of the founder of Foncia, Jacky Lorenzetti, in 2009. Vincent Bache Gabrielsen was appointed as technical director with the aim of restoring the flavour and quality of the wine produced in 1855.

Located at the northern exit of Pauillac, the 42 hectares of vines are planted on gravelly soils with clay subsoil.

The vineyard offers tasting of a blend of different grape varieties:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon 50%
  • Merlot 45%
  • Cabernet Franc 5%

The estate makes it a point of honour to cultivate the grapes under sustainable practices in order to respect and take care of its vines. The cultivation practices are currently being rethought, thus favouring the spreading of the grapes.

After hand-picking, careful sorting and vinification in stainless steel vats, Château Pédesclaux is aged in 60% new oak barrels.

Following the multiple renovations of the estate, the wine continues to improve and its future remains very promising. A renowned and traditional savoir-faire that gives birth to a precise, powerful and elegant wine.

In order to make the most of its terroir, the estate also produces a Second wine, "Fleur de Pédesclaux" made with 90% Merlot.
