External Reviews for Château les Ormes de Pez Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe
Brilliant crimson garnet this is a little closed at first expressing subtle wet rock and black cherry aromas. With a little aeration this opens up to reveal black plum cedar graphite and lovely sweet inner perfume. This is a wonderful example of well aged Bordeaux. Medium weighted and perfectly integrated tannins create a soft round seamless mouthfeel. This is an absolute pleasure at age 18. At peak drinking now this should hold nicely for another 3-5. Geoffrey Binder.
Some very old ormes (elm trees) which no longer exist account for the name of this property, whose history can be traced back to the 18th century. The 35-hectare vineyard is located around the hamlet of Pez and is divided into two main plots, in the centre and north of the commune of Saint- Estèphe. Ormes de Pez has very homogeneous soil (a clay gravel mixture typical of Saint-Estèphe) and many of the vines are quite old. The grapes are hand-picked. After selecting the vats and blending the wine is aged in oak barrels for 15 months. Designated a crus bourgeois exceptionnel in the 2003 classification, Château Ormes de Pez has a new label illustrating both the estate's renaissance and the elegance of its wine.
