1855 Grand Cru Classe – 5th Growth
The two-hundred years Château Pédesclaux has undergone spectacular metamorphosis under the direction of its current owners, the Lorenzetti family.
Since 2009, the family undertook restructuring of their vineyards. The land of the estate is now worked using organic methods.
The winemaking methods are unique and designed to work on a gravity-only basis. There are no pumps in the state-of-the-art vat room.
The architecture by Jean-Michel Wilmotte is truly unique especially for traditional atmosphere of Bordeaux. A visit to the property is one of the most rewarding experiences if you like modern architecture and design.
The wines followed the innovations. The recent vintages are the great examples of modern Pauillac with remarkable aromatic profile.

Visiting European Wineries
Here are my top places to stay in the Medoc wine country. Choose among Labarde (Margaux), Pauillac, or Saint-Estephe.
Yes, it is possible to visit Bordeaux wineries from Paris in one day. You can take an early high-speed train or plane, then rent a car at the train station or at the airport or hop on a wine tour.
