Owned by Jean-Michel Cazes, who also run prestigious Château Lynch-Bages, the estate is one of St-Estèphe’s leading Cru Bourgeois.
Les Ormes de Pez is full bodied and rich with black berry fruits, oaky flavours and smooth tannins.
The 2015 Ormes de Pez is impeccable. Dark, pliant and inviting, the 2015 has much to recommend it. Smoke, graphite, licorice, lavender, herb and licorice nuances add complexity to this dark, virile Saint-Estèphe. All the elements are very nicely balanced. I would prefer to drink the 2015 over the next decade or so. I suspect the tannins will always remain a bit chunky, but the 2015 has so much to recommend it. 2020 - 2030- 90 pts Antonio Galloni, vinous.com
