Tasting Notes

Château Ormes de Pez is owned by the Cazes family who also owns Château Lynch-Bages, the grand cru classé of Pauillac.  According to the family, the wines from Ormes de Pez are made with the same care and attention as those from Château Lynch-Bages:

"Our technical teams, overseen by Tonio Sanfins, prioritise integrated methods of agriculture which include the use of neutral products for the environment, optimised plant-health control and fallow periods for soil rest. Grapes are harvested by hand."

"The 2013 Les Ormes de Pez has a respectable bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry scents, a touch of cedar coming through and developing an almost Pauillac-like persona. The palate is a little tinny on the entry, but the mid-palate has respectable weight with more red than black fruit, gently building to a single, peppery finish that cuts away quickly. Still, this represents decent luncheon Claret if nothing more." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate (10/28/2016, Issue 227), Ratings: 86, Drink: 2016-2024

"Made by the team from Château Lynch-Bages, this estate crafts wines in the same generous style. A firm, tannic edge gives structure to the juicy acidity and black currant flavors. Drink from 2018." - Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast (3/2016), Ratings: 91

"Sweet black cherry, very high, super-fine tannins. Liquorice and leather to finish. Slightly lacking in concentration, as is 2013’s wont. Still, well-formed flavours with good length." Richard Hemming MW, , Rating: 17, Drink from: 2018-2028
