The pure cabernet character comes through clearly here with blackcurrants and blueberries, and flowers such as lavender and sandalwood. Medium- to full-bodied. Racy and polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. 68% cabernet sauvignon, 22% merlot, 7% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot. From organically grown grapes. - James Suckling

A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, aging in 65% new oak, the 2022 Pedesclaux has a pH of 3.86 and a TPI of 70. The yield was 37 hl/ha and this is the first year that it has been certified organic. The color is deep garnet-purple and the nose needs a fair bit of swirling to coax out evocative notes of blackcurrant cordial, juicy black plums, and black raspberries, with touches of violets, licorice, and wood smoke. The full-bodied palate is concentrated, yet possesses impressive tension and a firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins, finishing long and layered. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent

Floral and fragrant, really perfumed and scented, inviting, deep and cool. Sleek and silky, the fruit has gorgeous purity and cleanliness, with tannins that are filling and ripe but also have bite and grip. The wine has power but delivered so delicately with tannins that give a sculpted element to the profile with precision and definition. Feels extremely polished, on the tense and straight side, the Cabernet is not so expansive or plush but this feels like it has that Pauillac swagger with lots of life and energy. Very drinkable and impressive from director Vincent Bache-Gabrielsen. 16% press wine, usually 12-13%. New label as of 2022 celebrating organic certification. 3% completes the blend. Total acidity: 3.7. 65% new oak barrels. 3.86pH. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

Rich plum colour, vibrant edging, sleek and balanced, this is full of pleasure and precision. Generous in that you can feel the exoticism of the vintage in its ripe berry fruits but it has balance and the slate and liquorice character of Pauillac. 3.86ph, 37hl/h yield. 56% 1st wine in this vintage, first year organic certified (and the first classified estate to write this on the front label). Vincent Bache-Gabrielsen director. 65% new oak. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

The 2022 Pédesclaux is terrific. It shows a level of finesse that has not always been present here. There's plenty of richness and power, but also better balance than in some years. Spice, leather, menthol, rose petal, licorice and a discreet touch of oak are beautifully woven together. This is a fine vintage for Pédesclaux. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The 2022 Château Pédesclaux is a beautiful wine, with an almost bloody, iron-like character in its cassis and blue fruits as well as notes of leafy herbs. It's medium to full-bodied, has a layered, silky texture, and terrific purity. - Jeb Dunnuck

Now certified organic, the 2022 Pedésclaux exhibits aromas of dark berries, plums and pencil shavings, followed by a medium to full-bodied, suave and refined palate that's a touch lean on the finish. As it fleshes out with élevage, it should come into better balance. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
