2015 Pedesclaux Fleur de Pedesclaux Pauillac

2015 Pedesclaux Fleur de Pedesclaux Pauillac

€52.95
The wine itself has spent 16 months in French oak with 10% being in new oak after an extended period of cold pre-fermentation maceration, providing rounded velvety tannins. This is a good solid claret. Lots of structure, power and weight alongside lifted floral finesse, dark berries and some chocolate notes.

Description

Ethereal, fresh, appealing to both the nose and the palate, Pédesclaux’s second wine is a flower that unfurls as you approach. Thanks to its reliance on a high proportion of Merlot, the wine is soft and gentle, with a delicious, silky texture. It has intense, compelling and savoury fruit aromas and, year after year, beautifully calibrated scents of white flowers, violets and small red berries. Exhibiting a more high-spirited elegance yet nonetheless showing remarkable length, Fleur de Pédesclaux is a delight. In the mouth, it is fresh, subtle, packed with fruit and beautifully smooth tannins, with a long finish. In this more floral expression, the marvellous complexity of our terroir is once again evident, but in a mouth-watering style that is instantly festive.
