The history of Chateau Pédesclaux begins in the early nineteenth century when Peter Pédesclaux purchased several parcels of vines and created the estate. Its wine was classified as a Fifth Growth in 1855. Jacky Lorenzetti and his wife Frances, looking to expand their wine holdings after the purchase of Chateau Lilian Ladouys, purchased the Chateau in 2008. Their goal has been to raise the wine to a more consistent and better level than at the time of the 1855 Classification. Located in the north of Pauillac, the vineyard covers 42 hectares of gravel on clay subsoil.
