Created in the 15th century, Château de Pez is the oldest domain in Saint-Estèphe. The Pontac family, who also created Haut-Brion, gave Pez its vineyards. The domaine was sold as a property of the state after the French Revolution and owned by a succession of families before it was purchased by Champagne Louis Roederer in 1995.
Located west of the town of Saint-Estèphe, Château de Pez consists of 74 continuous acres, with 59 acres planted to prime grape varieties, mainly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery remains resolutely faithful to wood and it is to be noted that the wine undergoes absolutely no filtration. Château de Pez exhibits deep color and harmonious composition, with a blend of good fruit and tannins. This complete, rich, dense wine can be enjoyed now or put aged in a good cellar.
