94+ Points - Stuart McCloskey "This is quintessential Pauillac and the best Pedesclaux I have sampled from the estate in over 10 years. The palate is full-bodied with copious sweet ripe black fruit, marked by soft tannins and wonderful harmony and tension. This is undoubtedly an outstanding Pedesclaux which could get better?"

The 2006 Clos de Sarpe is medium to deep garnet in color and scented of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and mulberries with touches of underbrush, sandalwood, pencil shavings and tobacco. Medium-bodied with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, it has a great core of ripe, savory/sweet fruit and a very long ﬁnish.

An incredibly fresh, lively 2003, this wine offers a dense ruby/purple color along with full body and a remarkable nose of black currants, kirsch, lead pencil shavings and vanilla. Opulent, full-bodied and close to full maturity, it is a seamless classic that will age for 15-20 more years. Kudos to the Delon family for such a brilliant achievement in a tricky vintage.
90-92 Points - Neal Martin "From Alain Vauthier’s estate, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, this is showing very good fruit intensity on the nose, the oak very unresolved at the moment, nice purity though with blackberries, a touch of iodine and blueberry compote. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, supple and quite fleshy, lovely focus on the caressing finish. Nice tension with wild strawberry and raspberry liqueur. Excellent.

The Pavie-Macquin 2007 has a ripe fig-tinged bouquet with macerated dark cherries, sous-bois and a touch of honey. Fine definition. The palate is well defined with an edgy entry, crisp acidity with a peppery finish. Very elegant and refined, this is a lovely Saint Emilion 2007. Drink over 8-12 years.
