2013 Chateau Pedesclaux Grand Cru Classe, Pauillac
Regular rainfalls and fresh temperature caused a delay of the vegetative cycle. After a homogeneous disbudding, unfortunately, the flowering happened during the last two weeks of June... Under the rain! Those meteorological conditions provide flower abortion and shot berries, resulting in a significant low yield. Fortunately, thanks to the beautiful weather of July and August (hot and dry), they could catch up with the delay and have quite ideal maturity for the berries.
47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc
