About
The property was founded in 1810 by winebroker Pierre Urbain Pédesclaux, who operated it with his wife. Originally created by joining various plots from several different Crus Classés vineyards, it remained in the Pédesclaux family until the beginning of the 20th century. In 1891, the property was purchased by the Count of Gâtebois. It was subject to a full reconstruction which enabled an improved quality of its wines.

After farming the estate as a tenant, Mr. Lucien Jugla bought it in 1932. He died in 1965 and his children continued the work he had begun. The estate was purchased in 2009 by Jacky Lorenzetti, who also owns Château Lilian Ladouys, with the intention of restoring it to its former glory and making it once again a symbol of finesse and quality. Given 5th Growth status in the 1855 Classification, Pédesclaux is situated on the gravel plateau that overlooks the town of Pauillac. The vineyard is planted with the three classic Bordeaux grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The result is a wine that has carved a reputation for itself all around the world.
