Château Les Ormes de Pez [2012/2013]
Château Les Ormes-de-Pez is owned by the Cazes family, also owners of Château Lynch-Bages. For many years the vinification took place at Lynch-Bages, but the cuvier and chai of Ormes-de-Pez were modernised before the 1981 vintage. After a long period of management by Jean-Michel Cazes, he has been succeeded by his son Jean-Charles Cazes. The wine produced here was classified as one of 9 Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnels in the 2003 listing. Though this classification is currently annulled, it is expected to be revived by the 2009 vintage, but without use of the quality divisions such as "exceptionnel".
Tannic, concentrated red with full body and classic St-Estephe profile and tannins. Nice flavours in the background with good intensity and finish.– Wine Searcher – Jeannie Cho Lee
