Owned and made by the Cazes family of Lynch Bages, this is a consistently good wine and deserving of Cru Classé status.
This Saint Estèphe was highly praised by wine critics around the world and is made from 52% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot.
Robert Parker 92 Points – The 2016 Les Ormes de Pez has a tightly wound, graphite-scented
bouquet that needs a little coaxing from the glass but eventually reveals discreet minerally scents
mixed with sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied with quite succulent tannin, and certainly more approachable than the Les Ormes de Pez of the past, delivering gentle grip toward the tarry finish. This is a finely crafted Saint-Estèphe from team Cazes.
James Suckling 94 Points – The dark berries, sandalwood and cedar aromas are certainly
memorable. Full-bodied, dense and rich in the centre palate with ripe, polished tannins and a long,
flavourful finish. Dense and powerful.
Antonio Galloni 92 Points – This is a very expressive wine. Iron, smoke, savoury herbs, liquorice,
pomegranate and blood orange all give the 2016 a distinctly feral, savoury quality to play off the bright red toned fruit. Supple and pliant in the glass, with lovely complexity, the 2016 is wonderfully complex and nuanced. This pleasantly rustic, hearty Saint-Estèphe will drink well upon release.
