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."

Tasting Notes

"The 2016 Les Ormes de Pez is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 52% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot picked from 28 September until 12 October. It has an impressive bouquet: blackcurrants, boysenberry and crème de cassis, all with very well integrated new oak. There is a lot of panache here, a word perhaps I have not associated with this Saint Estèphe in recent years. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a lovely grainy texture, quite pure with lovely blackberry, melted tar and slightly savory, almost meaty notes. Harmonious right to the end, this is an excellent Les Ormes de Pez that seems to revel in the 2016 vintage. This might be one of the best wines from the estate." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate (4/28/2017, Issue 230), Ratings: 92-94, Drink: 2022-2045
