111The kernel for Pezat is a vineyard planted literally a pace outside of the Saint Emilion Appellation - towards the river from Château Teyssier near to Branne. Previously this large vineyard consisted of high trellised vines planted 3 metres apart - the norm in Entre-des-Mers where grapes are machine picked. Planting down the middle of the rows gave the same density as a vineyard in Saint Emilion. Additionally, on the original vines, a sucker-per-vine was allowed to grow. At which stage the original vine was cut off, almost halving the height of the vines down to what one would expect from a hand-picked vineyard in Saint Emilion. The vines are now pruned on the ‘double guyot’ system. The secondary shoots are removed and the vines deleafed and bunch-thined. The grapes are handpicked and vinified as the other wines of the Chateau - to the standard of a Saint Emilion Grand Cru.
Critic Reviews:
"Quite deep crimson. Sweet, almost sweaty nose. Inky oaky tannins on the finish." (Jancis Robinson MW)

"From Jonathan Maltus, this large production, generic Bordeaux, made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, is a noteworthy choice for readers looking for outstanding value. Generously endowed with a dark ruby/plum/purple color and straightforward, ripe fruit as well as an endearing personality" (The Wine Advocate)
