Average critic rating : 89.25 points



A big time sleeper of the vintage, this may be the finest De Pez produced in over 40 years. Now in the sure hands of the Roederer-Deutz champagne firm (also the proprietors of Pichon-Lalande and the neighboring St.-Estephe estate of Beausejour), the 2008 is a blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot cropped at 38 hectoliters per hectare. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by dense creme de cassis, cedarwood, and earth characteristics, a plush, full-bodied texture, superb concentration and purity, and sweet tannins. This is another impressive example from a vintage that the mainstream media began maligning before any grapes were ever harvested. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 182



Tar and spice with currants on the nose. Full and silky, with good fruit and firm tannins. Citrus fruit on the finish. Tight. Score range: 86-89. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2009.
