    The Refined Elegance of a Juicy and Harmonious Saint-Estephe

    A superb property of the famous Saint-Estephe appellation, on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region, Chateau Ormes de Pez is distinguished by its charming wines, which achieve the perfect combination of power and harmony.

    The property takes its name from the beautiful elm trees found in its garden. The estate is today run by the Cazes family, who were responsible for elevating Chateau Ormes de Pez to its former glory and international reputation as one of the most beautiful properties of its appellation.

    Product of a challenging vintage with great variations in weather, the Chateau Ormes de Pez 2017 is nevertheless showing signs of a successful vintage. One of the vineyard plots of Chateau Ormes de Pez was affected by the disastrous frost at the end of April 2017. The vines, nevertheless, enjoyed a continuous vegetative cycle with a superb flowering season favoring optimal maturity in the fruit. The vinifications, carried out under the watchful eye of Jean-Michel Cazes, highlighted the great potential of grapes picked at full maturity.

    With its blend typical of the Medoc (42 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 51 % Merlot, 6 % Cabernet franc et 1 % Petit Verdot, the Chateau Ormes de Pez 2017 reveals the personality of a great Saint-Estephe, full of elegance and charm. The aromatic palette offers fresh notes of black fruits, blackcurrant and cherry. On the palate, the attack seduces with its dense and juicy texture. The wine also offers lasting tannins of great finesse, which combine with notes of the toasted oak barrel in which the wine aged, continuing to a persistent finish. A Saint-Estephe full of promise.

    Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Ormes de Pez features black cherries and cassis notions over a core of fragrant earth, stewed tea and tobacco plus a waft of forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy black fruit with a grainy texture and long, mineral-tinged finish.
