Château Ormes de Pez 2011, Saint-Estèphe
54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
Château Ormes de Pez (owned and managed by the Cazes family, from the pretigious Château Lynch-Bages in Pauillac) produces an opulent, full-bodied and powerful wine. The 2011 exhibits a proper balance between intense flavours of black fruit, spices, spicy tannins and long finish. If you like powerful, tannic and complex Bordeaux wines, this typical Saint-Estèphe is for you. Do not hesitate to keep a few aside, it is only starting to open up and will age very well.
