The Château de Pez estate covers more than 26 hectares. The wines are left to ferment in traditional oak vats before being blended, and left to develop for a period of 16 to 18 months in oak barrels, 40 percent of them new.
Pez’s philosophy is to use a natural approach to vineyard management, limiting the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides.
The wine is fermented 21 days on the skin in temperature-controlled large vats. After one year. in barrel, the wine is fined using fresh egg whites. Absolutely no filtration takes place. Then it is aged in wood (40% new oak) for 16-18 months.
Pez is an elegant wine with a fine balance and soft tannins, not rustic and masculine like traditional St. Estèphe wines.
