External Reviews for Chateau Ormes de Pez
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.
With a violet, almost Pomerol character, the 2009 Ormes de Pez is a seductive,<br/>concentrated wine with ripe, juicy mulberry fruit and ultra-ripe tannins<br/>providing structure. A smooth, velvety mouthfeel and wonderful harmony on the<br/>palate make this a truly gorgeous wine. This is would be a brilliant value<br/>buy. <br/> <br/>"Ch. Ormes de Pez was the first wine on my value list and really is one of the<br/>best 2009s under 300. Made by the same team and in the same meticulous<br/>style as Ch. Lynch Bages, it is a seductive, concentrated wine with ripe, juicy<br/>mulberry fruit and ultra-ripe tannins providing structure. A smooth, velvety<br/>mouth feel and wonderful harmony on the palate make this a truly gorgeous<br/>wine". <br/>(Simon Staples, Berrys' Fine Wine Director)
