Chateau Ormes de Pez, Saint Estephe, Bordeaux, France, 2016
A blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 52% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot from vines with an average age of 35 years.
The estate is owned by Jean-Michel Cazes, also owner of Chateau Lynch-Bages and, until 2011, was classified as a "Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel". Since the removal of the Cru Bourgeois grading system it's been part of a marketing group of six chateaux known as "Les Exceptionnels". This group has continued on its own even after the re-introduction of the new 3-tier Cru Bourgeois system in 2020.
Chateau Ormes de Pez is located opposite another similarly named property, "Chateau de Pez", on the north-west side of the appellation.
"The 2016 Ormes de Pez is deep garnet-purple in color with red and black currants, earth, sage and chargrill on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied, refreshing and chewy with an herbal lift. " Lisa Perrotti-Brown 91/100 ropertparker.com
