  • Winemaker Notes 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.
  • Tasting Notes Beautiful, brilliant deep red, with a nose of black berry fruits, fig and tobacco. The vanilla and toasty notes lend enormous complexity and character to this wine. The palate is generous and chewy and displays fine length with powerful, elegant tannins.
