Château
de Pez

Saint-Estèphe
Champagne Louis Roederer
The Champagne house of Louis Roederer bought this beautiful, historic estate in June 1995. Château de Pez is one of the oldest winegrowing properties in Saint-Estèphe.

Created in the 15th century, it achieved fame in the 16th century when it was acquired by the Pontac family, who also founded Haut Brion. Initially a hunting lodge, the property was enlarged and transformed exclusively into a wine producing estate over time. Its architecture was also significantly modified in the 18th century. Two wings and two towers were added to the main building, which definitely took on the appearance of a château as a result. It was entirely renovated in 2000, as were the outbuildings and winemaking facilities.

Located west, on the heights of Saint-Estèphe, the vineyard consists of 38 hectares of gravelly soil on clay-limestone bedrock. The wines of château de Pez have wonderful tannic structure, power, a long aftertaste, a great deal of finesse, and excellent ageing potential.
