The 2015 Pédesclaux comes across as quite understated and delicate. Although the aromatics are appealing, the 2015 lacks depth and personality. The limits of the vintage are evident here. The blend is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Château Pédesclaux is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, incidentally the first time that the latter has been used in the blend. It was picked form 18 September with the young Merlot and finished 26 October with the Cabernet Sauvignon at 50 hl/ha. It has a very pure bouquet with iodine-tinged blueberry and blackberry fruit, graceful and harmonious. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, precise in the mouth with perhaps the best tension that I have discerned in this rejuvenated Pauillac - one where a pretty penny has been spent, I might add. Granted, it is not a Pédesclaux with profound depth and I was anticipating greater "volume." That said, it is nicely proportioned and sure to age well, continuing the vigorous upward curve of this estate. One to watch. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2035

This is very balanced and fine with blueberry, black currants, and licorice. Medium to full body, integrated tannins and a clean finish. Sexy. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

On the red fruit side of the spectrum, with currant and cherry flavors lined with light floral and iron hints. Pretty, if a bit shy on stuffing. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Bright crimson. A little raw on the nose. Quite notable acid and tannin without being fully integrated. Bit tough. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2029

A good, broad Cabernet cassis nose and palate that is nicely lifted. A modern wine that is on the way up, showing fine fruit, character and charm. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2035
