(JS94-95 points) This is very tight and focused with a precise, almost percing depth. Full body, ultra-refined and a long finish. Fantastic length. Great elegance here with power.

(WA93-95 points) The 2016 Pedesclaux is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, picked between 29 September and 18 October, matured in 60% new oak. It has a tightly-wound bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit, a touch of iodine and graphite. I like the subtle nature of this Pedesclaux, the brooding intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, crisp and fresh, a gorgeous salinity and a long and persistent, lightly spiced finish. This leaves the 2015 Pedesclaux far behind. - Neal Martin

(JL92-94 points) Still considered the new kid on the block in Pauillac, this wine was made from blending 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 0.4% Petit Verdot and 0.3% Cabernet Franc, reaching 13.3% alcohol. Richly colored, the wine shows off its ready, saucy, crunchy cassis, tobacco, cigar box and lead pencil aromas with ease, together with a duvet of tannins, serious concentration, lift and length. As more of the vineyard becomes planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, this will keep getting better and better.

Although not especially complex, Pédesclaux has an immediacy that is hugely appealing. Black cherry, chocolate, smoke, mocha and licorice add to its sumptuous, racy personality. This is a wine of pure, unadulterated pleasure. The 2016 spent a whopping two months on the skins (including a 10-15 day cold soak) and will see about 50% new oak during its planned 18 months in barrel. Eric Boissenot is the consulting winemaker. Tasted two times.

(WS90-93 points) Ironclad grip frames a core of dark currant fruit, with flecks of tobacco and pepper chiming in on the finish. Textbook Pauillac. — J.M.
