The wines from Ormes de Pez are powerful, yet characterised by their harmonious structure. They are indulgent and pleasurable, and combine a smooth, fleshy texture with the distinctive elegance of a Saint-Estèphe.

Made using the traditional grape varieties, these wines are rich, full bodied, and generous. They are made of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and complemented by a significant amount of Merlot for a combination of longevity and smoothness. The resulting wines are rich and fruity with a rather imposing tannic backbone. They are seductive in their youth and develop their finesse after a few years of bottle age.

A powerful and distinctive Saint-Estèphe

Château Les Ormes de Pez is a harmonious, spicy, and distinctive wine that reveals the authenticity of its terroir in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. It will charm you with its opulence, elegance, and well-rounded structure. The palate offers robust tannins whilst retaining a smooth, fleshy side.


Notes and Reviews

Robert Parker (89)

A big, fruity, hedonistic style of wine, the 2009 Les Ormes de Pez has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of incense and barbecue smoke and oodles of black berry and cassis fruit. It is medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins and low acidity. This attractive, very hedonistic style of wine should drink well for at least a decade.
