THE VINTAGE Product of a tense wine-growing season, with an uneven meteorology that tormented us at times, 2016 is a completely unexpected vintage. Heavy rain followed by a period of droughts had us fear the worst, but thanks to Ch�teau P�desclaux's soil, the specific care given to the vineyard, along with providential turnarounds. All contributed to making 2016 the most awaited vintage since the purchase of the property by Mr and Mrs Lorenzetti in 2009. The quality of the harvest was such that - for the first time - the 4 emblematic grape varieties, Cabernet- Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, are all present in Ch�teau P�desclaux's blend. SITUATION AOC Pauillac TERROIR Garonne gravel on limestone bedrock IN THE VINEYARD All work favorizing a good distribution and aeration of the grapes (disbudding, clipping, thinning out of leaves.
