TASTING NOTES

"The dark berries, sandalwood and cedar aromas are certainly memorable. Full-bodied, dense and rich in the center palate with ripe, polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Dense and powerful. Try after 2025." JamesSuckling.com

"This is nicely coiled up, with damson plum, raspberry and bitter cherry coulis flavors held in check for now by vivid savory, lilac and iron notes. Features length, cut and drive, so cellar to let this round into form. Displays a textbook St.-Estèphe profile, with pleasant austerity on full display. Best from 2022 through 2032." Wine Spectator

"The 2016 Ormes de Pez is a very expressive wine. Iron, smoke, savory herbs, licorice, pomegranate and blood orange all give the 2016 a distinctly feral, savory quality to play off the bright red toned fruit. Supple and pliant in the glass, with lovely complexity, the 2016 is wonderfully complex and nuanced. This pleasantly rustic, hearty Saint-Estèphe will drink well upon release."

"The 2016 Ormes de Pez is deep garnet-purple in color with red and black currants, earth, sage and chargrill on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied, refreshing and chewy with an herbal lift." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Les Ormes de Pez has a tightly wound, graphite-scented bouquet that needs a little coaxing from the glass but eventually reveals discreet minerally scents mixed with sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied with quite succulent tannin, and certainly more approachable than the Les Ormes de Pez of the past, delivering gentle grip toward the tarry finish. This is a finely crafted Saint-Estèphe from team Cazes." Neal Martin, Vinous.com
