Ormes Pez 2012

Ormes de Pez

Case Format: 12x75cl

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.

CRITIC REVIEWS

Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This is a soft, consumer-friendly style of wine from Les Ormes de Pez from the Cazes family, who have done so much for the village of Pauillac and their own wines, such as Lynch-Bages. They have turned out a luscious, dark ruby/purple wine with sweet cassis fruit, an uncomplicated, medium-bodied mouthfeel and very velvety tannin. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2012 Ormes de Pez bursts with open-knit black cherry compote and eucalyptus scents, followed by wafts of blackcurrant cordial, unsmoked cigar, and dusty soil. Medium-bodied, the palate is chock full of minty black fruits with savory accents and a chewy texture, finishing spicy. Mature now, it is time to drink up.
