    The richesse and structure of a red grand vin from Saint-Estephe

    In a vintage marked by strong climatic contrasts, Chateau Ormes de Pez – owned by the J.M Cazes family – has produced a beautiful 2018 Saint-Estephe with dazzling wealth and structure.

    The winter began with rain and the spring continued with heavy storms bringing a significant mildew pressure. The summer that came after, from the month of July onwards, favored a beautiful ripening of the fruit. At Chateau Ormes de Pez, the grape harvest began on September 20th and ended on October 9th, yielding perfectly healthy fruit of exceptional quality, with a great richness of polyphenols and sugars.

    A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (41%), Merlot (50%), Cabernet Franc (7%) and Petit Verdot (2%), the Chateau Ormes de Pez 2018 is matured in French oak barrels (45% new wood).

    The grand vin of the property, the Chateau Ormes de Pez 2018 presents the typicity of a great Saint-Estephe. The intense and expressive nose offers notes of black and red fruits. On the palate, the wine seduces with its richness and generosity, revealing a beautiful tannic structure. The persistent finish ends with beautiful licorice notes. A beautiful Saint-Estephe in a great Bordeaux vintage.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Composed of 50% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot and aging in 45% new barriques, the deep purple-black colored 2018 Ormes de Pez leaps from the glass with vibrant blackberries, black cherries and mulberries scents plus touches of garrigue, tree bark and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied with bags of muscular fruit, it has a firm, grainy texture and great freshness, finishing on an herbal lift.
