Best-value Bordeaux of 2012

Chateau Pedesclaux
3 of 25

Château Pédesclaux, Pauillac 5CC, 2009

Another top billing for this fifth growth with limited distribution and even more limited reputation. But the Pédesclaux of today is a very different property and wine to that run by the Jugla family. In 2009 it was bought by estate agent Jacky Lorenzetti, who entrusted the management to Vincent Mulliez of Ch Bellevue. After Mulliez’ death, Vincent Bache- Gabrielsen took over. In the past few years the Lorenzettis have added 15 hectares to the existing 26ha, enabling greater selection of grapes. 18.55pts/20
