A smooth red wine from Saint-Estèphe
Produced on a total surface area of 35 hectares, the Chateau Ormes de Pez is a classified red wine from Saint-Estephe appellation, which benefits from a terroir composed of Garonne gravel. The 2006 vintage has a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc.
At tasting, the Chateau Ormes de Pez 2006 presents a splendid deep, dense color before giving off red fruit aromas with blackcurrant and strawberry notes. It offers a frank attack on the palate where one can feel ample fruitiness and beautifully ripe, melted tannins. A wine from Saint-Estèphe with excellent aging potential.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Les Ormes de Pez has a slightly dusty, earthy bouquet that is typical Saint Estèphe. The palate is medium-bodied with bold tannin, mulberry and red plum notes, with hints of sage and cooked meat towards the finish; though a subsequent bottle demonstrated less of that distracting dustiness on the nose and also better weight on the palate. Tasted April 2016.
