Ormes Pez 2011

Ormes de Pez

Case Format: 1x75cl

This stylish St-Estèphe has been run by the Cazes for generations, the same family behind Lynch Bages, and as such the winemaking ethos is handled very similarly to its illustrious Pauillac stable-mate. With an impressive track record and fair price, it punches well above its Cru Bourgeois status. The vineyard area, divided into two blocks north and south of the village of Saint-Estèphe, extends across 33 hectares and comprise Cabernet Sauvignon (c.70%), Merlot (c.20%) and Cabernet Franc (c.10%). In recent years the wines have become richer and softer with more concentrated flavours of fruit which has been the result of using more new oak barrels during the ageing process, as well as an increase in Cabernet Sauvignon in the final blend.

Blackish crimson. Rich, dark fruited and a little floral on the nose. Vanilla and spice too. Much more savoury on the palate. Chalky, dry tannins. A bit flat-footed and abrupt on the finish.(JH)

The 2011 Les Ormes de Pez is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aged in 45% new oak. It has an intense, almost brutish bouquet that leaps out of the glass and grabs you by the lapels. It is sweet with cassis and blueberry jam aromas, a touch of graphite and scorched earth underneath. The palate has a tannic entry with a saline seam, edgy tannins that make this quite masculine with a sinewy finish. There is good substance here if not finesse, although there is fine persistency towards the finish. Tasted April 2012.
