K&L Notes

92 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2016 Ormes de Pez is a very expressive wine. Iron, smoke, savory herbs, licorice, pomegranate and blood orange all give the 2016 a distinctly feral, savory 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." (Vinous, 1/2019)

    Les Ormes de Pez is a wine that is always one of Bordeaux greatest values from the Lynch-Bages team, especially in a great vintage like 2016: Nice fruity, forward and zesty black fruits, great freshness and bright acidity, really nice tasting Ormes! 1 Star.

    Consistently one of the top values in St-Estèphe, Château Ormes de Pez flourishes under the stewardship of the Cazes family, owners of Lynch-Bages in Pauillac. Jean-Charles Cazes purchased the property in 1940; his son Jean-Michel made major improvements in the early 1980s. The 2016 vintage may be one of the finest ever produced at this estate. Pitch perfect with generous sweet black fruits and a hint of oak spice. Tannins very fine. A complete wine.

    A perfect score for this merlot based (57%)wine. St-Estephe may be the best region for 2016 Bordeaux and this one is a fine value. Powerful blackberry fruit aromas and flavor. Sweet mid palate entry and lovely texture on the palate. Much better than their 2015 in my opinion.
    Drink from 2020 to 2040
