75cl * Bordeaux, France
Under the auspices of Lynch-Bages, the de Pez estate benefits from the same technical team. Generous and glossy Cabernet-dominated fruit is balanced alongside a classic Saint-Estephe character and structure. A full-throttle, concentrated wine that will need time to show proper development - if you can keep your hands off its appeal now (if not, decant!)
Drinking window: to 2040

This bottle is part of a wine cellar purchased from a highly respected Master of Wine (MW) with whom I have worked for many years and who is recognised as one of the world’s Italian wine experts. It has been stored in the MW’s own cellar or climate-controlled storage and I have every belief that it is in tip-top condition. However, as with all purchases of this nature there has to be an element of caveat emptor to proceedings – as such, we will not be able to offer refunds or returns on this item.
