Chateau Pedesclaux

Classified Growth (Grand Cru Classé)

The vineyard of Chateau Pedesclaux is located on the gravel plateau overlooking the town of Pauillac, and is adjacent to Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild and Pontet Canet.
The chateau was created at the beginning of the 19th century, in 1810, by Mr. Urbain Pierre Pedesclaux, a well-known wine broker in Bordeaux. The chateau is classified since 1855 as a Fifth Grand Cru Classé.
In 1950 Lucien Jugla, a tenant farmer, purchased the Chateau Pedesclaux. The second label of this wine castle (Lucien de Pedesclaux) is named after him.

Since 1996, the estate has been administered by his relatives and together they pursue a major goal, the quality. Renovation of the grape reception process, restoration of the vat-room and the wine-making facilities as well as completion of the barrel cellars, the tasting room and the offices has been achieved.

Nowadays, the wine castle makes a total transformation to have 5 rooms. Its visitors will have possibility to have a rest in April 2006.
