  • Goedhuis, April 2016, Score: 88-90

    Striking smoky aromas, with hints of vanilla pod and spice. A full and rich wine, with lots of open juicy black fruit flavours, with a strong entwined tannic core. Typically St Estèphe.

  • Neal Martin, April 2016, Score: 87-89

    The 2015 Les Ormes de Pez is a blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot that is being matured in 45% new oak. It has a well-defined bouquet with blackberry and bilberry fruit, although compared to recent vintages, it does not quite possess the same fruit intensity, feels just a little muted at this stage. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, nicely balanced though a little angular at the moment. It needs just a bit more fruit to fill out the final third. Give this 4-5 years of bottle age and you will have a decent, if not top-tier Les Ormes de Pez.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2016, Score: 87-89

    The 2015 Les Ormes de Pez is an attractive Saint-Estèphe. Black cherry, plum, graphite, herbs, licorice and menthol add nuance throughout, but the 2015 shows the mid-weight personality that is typical of the vintage in Saint-Estèphe. I would prefer to drink the 2015 young, while the fruit retains its freshness.

  • James Suckling, April 2016, Score: 91-92

    A solid and chewy red with blackberry and black currant character. Full body, chewy tannins. Fresh finsih.

  • Decanter, April 2016, Score: 90

    Good crunchy fruit that is more polished than in the past. A classic, harmonious and modern wine.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2016, Score: 17+

    (44 Cabernet Sauvignon, 49 Merlot, 6 Cabernet Franc, 1 Petit Verdot) | 45% new oak. Scented, pure, bright and rather inviting, this is a very pretty wine with some obvious red fruit softening the palate and lightening the mood. It is nice to see the tension on the finish doesn’t detract from the whole allowing the wine to work its magic relatively unencumbered. Good, stylish and fresh, this is a lip-smacking wine.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2016, Score: 16

    Very deep crimson. Mild but well-balanced aroma. Just a little lean on the palate. Not quite the drive of the best wines of the appellation. Steady Eddy of a wine. Marked acid on the end. Drink 2023-2030

  • Tim Atkin, May 2016, Score: 91

    This doesn’t have the structure of some vintages - no bad thing for people who find St.Estèphe a little chewy - but it’s soft, spicy and plummy with attractive oak and good texture on the palate. Drink: 2020-26

  • Wine Spectator, April 2016, Score: 86-89

    Tangy, with pomegranate and red currant notes laced with a wet pebble spine. Direct.


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.


St Estèphe

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.
