This shows much more clarity than the 2011. Aromas of currants, lead pencil and flowers. Blueberries, too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and beautiful fruit. This is a wine that shows finesse and structure for the vintage. Very polished and well made. Try in 2018.

The 2012 Pédesclaux has been superb on both occasions I have tasted it recently. One of the real sleepers of the vintage, the 2012 is endowed with terrific depth and tons of personality. Dark cherry, raspberry, tobacco and wild flowers add multiple shades of dimension. This is a superb showing from Pedesclaux and proprietor Jacky Lorenzetti. The 2012 is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. There can be little doubt Pedesclaux is a property to watch.

The 2012 Pedesclaux has more complexity on the nose compared to the 2011 with blackberry, briary, sous-bois and pencil-box aromas, more Pauillac than the last three vintages. The palate is well balanced with a pointed entry, a little angular in style and perhaps needing more flesh and substance to develop on the finish. I like the tension here, though it needs more personality and more nuance to develop in bottle. Tasted March 2016.
