Editorial Reviews for Les Ormes de Pez
Smoky and autumnal on the nose with rich brambly fruit, dried herbs, slightly gamy notes that frame the lovely perfumed core of wild berry fruit, - gently elegant entry, transparent fruit, mouthwatering acids, fresh and crisp feeling, to the red currant fruit with hints of juniper, not a powerhouse but elegant, balances fruit and mineral note through the moderately long finish (89-90)
2006, not 2007
Subtle, smooth, honey, juicy, finishes with more honeycomb...enjoyable.
very rich early aromas with intense notes of dark fruits and raisin. Tanic note is soft and I found almost no acidity. A very good surprise
Nose of currant and pie cherry that turns to coffee, chocolate and spice as the wine opens up. The palate is similar and really grows with time in the decanter. Pretty dry on the first day with a real tart lingering finish. On day two the finish has really mellowed out and matches the nose and palate.
Floral red fruit nose Spicy twang. Lots of tobacco flavors with a touch of fruit (black currants). Smoky finish.
Appearance: Clear, deep ruby with very little variation between core and rim, with legs. Nose: Clean, medium intensity developing aroma of blackberry, blackcurrant, plum, liquorice, sweet spice, black pepper, oak and a savory note suggesting good maturity. Overall nose is not particularly complex and quite typical of wines coming from the region. Palate: Dry, with medium acidity, exhibiting a ripe and powdery medium level of tannin. Medium alcohol level with a medium plus body. Medium intensity flavor of blackberry, black cherry, chocolate, smoke, charred wood, earthy and sweet spice notes. A good intense and ripe fruit flavor showing the wine coming from a good vintage. Supple mouth-feel and overall good balance. Length is a bit short at medium minus level though. Conclusion: Acceptable quality level mainly due to the short length, but the wine is showing a good balance and reasonable complexity of the characters on the blend of grapes. Ready to drink now, with the maturity characters already showing, thus will not improve too much and should drink within the next 1-2 years.
Rich in flavor, smell of fruit and flowers
External Reviews for Les Ormes de Pez
Ripe and sweet tannins combine easily with this wines juicy fruit and spice notes. All of the elements hang comfortably together. Wine Enthusiast.
Aromen von süsser schwarzer Frucht, vermischt mit Düften von Lehmerde und würzigem frischem Eichenholz. Im Mund erweist sich der Wein als mittelschwer und überraschend sanft. Tannin, Säure und Alkohol sind schön integriert.
Tasted at Lynch-Bages and the UGC the vineyard suffered some hail damage and some parcels lost as much as 30-40% of the crop and the yield which is 44hl/ha. The Les Ormes de Pez is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon 45% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot raised in 45% new oak. It has a very sensual very pure bouquet with dark cherries boysenberry wild hedgerow mint and a touch of vanilla much more feminine than the wines of the past. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ta
Really vibrant with lovely notes of plum violet and cherry preserves laced with chalky cut that stretches out the finish. Very very solid. -J.M. Wine Spectator.

From the seam technical team as Chateau Lynch Bages in Pauillac blending 57% Cabernet Sauvignon 34% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot produced a deeply colored wine with scents of stone cassis and coffee bean. With round tannins and a soft entry the wine finishes with sweet cassis and black cherry flavors supple textures and freshness. Jeff Leve.
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.
