Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2018, Score: 90-92

This is an excellent example of good value St Estèphe, in the infinitely capable hands of Jean-Charles Cazes of Lynch Bages. A firmly structured wine, full of wild hedgerow fruit flavours. Beautifully balanced with a subtle stony finish, this well-made wine bursts with energy and intensity.

Producer

Château les Ormes de Pez

This Cru Bourgeois was named after the elm trees (ormes) which were originally found around the village of Pez in St.-Estèphe. The property has been in the Cazes family (of Lynch Bages fame) for several generations and as such is handled similarly to its illustrious Pauillac sibling. Due to its impressive track record for consistency and its grounded pricing sense, it is remains one of the best values in Bordeaux.

Region

St Estèphe, Red Bordeaux

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
