Château Les Ormes de Pez Saint-Estèphe
Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel
The wines from Ormes de Pez are powerful yet characterised by their harmonious structure. They are indulgent, 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. (Jmcazes.com)
AOC (controlled designation of origin)
This 2016 vintage is characterised by a richness, finesse and elegance. Its fruity nose mixes very classic notes of morello cherry, blackberry, cassis and a touch of liquorice. Its mouth, both full-bodied and fresh, reveals silky tannins enveloping a very long finish. (Jmcazes.com)
