Château Ormes De Pez

Chateau Les Ormes de Pez takes its name from the village of Pez near St Estèphe, as do the other nearby cru bourgeois properties of de Pez and La Tour de Pez. Les Ormes translates as elms, and betrays the presence of a copse of these trees, long since disappeared, near the chateau.

4 /5

Château Ormes de Pez is the property of Jean-Michel Cazes, like Château Lynch-Bages, Grand Cru Classé of Pauillac.

The 32 hectares of this Saint-Estèphe are divided into two parts in the hamlet of Pez. The grape varieties is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, and a minority of Petit Verdot.
All the work of winemaking is done by the Lynch-Bages team. The wine is then aged for 12 to 15 months in oak barrels (45% new).
Final assembly is composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
This 2012 vintage is very nice, letting speak Merlot in all its fullness. In a significant tenderness, it offers a fresh and tense final.

Everything is done to the equipment the cellars as winemaking techniques of Château Les Ormes-de-Pez combine tradition and modernism. For two weeks, the fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks enjoying a temperature regulation system.
The 2011 vintage has a dark ruby ​​color, with plum shades.
Its sweet and fruity nose (blackcurrant, plum, red and black fruit) seduced us and invades.
The palate is opulent, silky with a final oriented fruit. This wine is silky and generous.
