Saint-Estèphe is one of the many famous Left Bank red wine appellations of Bordeaux, known for reds based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Situated at the northern end of the Haut-Médoc region on the gravelly western shores of the Gironde estuary, Saint-Estèphe is separated from its famous neighbor, Pauillac, only by a stream, yet there are significant differences between them. With 1,229 hectares (3036 acres) it accounts for 8 percent of the vineyard area of the Médoc.

Because Saint-Estèphe is marginally further from the gravel-bearing waters of the Garonne river, the soil here is far less stony than that found in the southern part of Haut-Médoc. Instead, a heavy clay and limestone base dominates this area, resulting in poorer-draining soils, delayed ripening and higher acidity levels in the wines.
Saint-Estèphe is one of the largest communal appellations of the Médoc, spread across more than 2500 acres. The vineyard is planted on well-drained gravel outcrops that protect the vines from excessive humidity. The subsoil, made up of clay and limestone, gives the wines their unique personality.

The word pez means "peace" in Old French and is still commonly used in Saint-Estèphe.

35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 60% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Crushed-fruit, mocha and earthy undertones on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, creamy tannins. Structured and savory on the palate with fresh acidity. Clean finish.
