94-95 Points - James Suckling
This is very tight and focused with a precise, almost percing depth. Full body, ultra-refined and a long finish. Fantastic length. Great elegance here with power.

The 2016 Château Pédesclaux is the darkest colored in the lineup and is made from 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and the rest Cabernet Franc. Blueberries, raspberries, spring flowers, menthol, and spice notes all flow to a beautifully pure, seamless, elegant and refined Pauillac that has good acidity, building, fine tannin, and a great finish. It’s a beautiful barrel sample and my money is on it being the finest wine from the estate to date.
