Fleur de Pedesclaux Pauillac 2014

Blossoming as soon as it is opened. With its richer concentration in merlot, this wine
offers a softer, lighter touch with a warm and silky texture. Its fruity aromas are
intense, crisp and pleasing on the palate.

THE VINTAGE
2014 was a succession of totally different seasons. Mild temperatures and plenty of rain (our
weather station registered a rainfall excess of 87%) caused an early beginning of the vegetative
cycle. Spring was mild, dry and sunny and therefore we were 15 days ahead of time. We kept
these days until the end of the flowering. Due to a pretty cold summer, the veraison was spread
until mid-August. An amount of sunshine higher than 20%, the average temperatures higher of
2°C than a normal vintage and less rain : that was September ! Since 1900, it was one of the
warmest month! This Indian Summer allowed the berries to get more maturity and
concentration, their volume declining up to 10% per week.
