"Aromatic. Medium intensity. Gentle, mild, well balanced with acid more noticeable than the fine tannins. This should eventually become something pretty charming, I think." 17 pts, Jancis Robinson

Chateau Ormes de Pez is one of St-Estèphe`s leading Cru Bourgeois properties. It was bought by Jean-Charles Cazes in 1936 and is now owned and run by Jean-Michel Cazes.
The estate is located just outside the village of Pez in the northern part of the St-Estèphe commune.There are 32 hectares of vineyards, which lie on soils rich in gravel on a subsoil of sand and clay.
In the last decade, the wines have become richer and more fruit-driven - selection at harvest has become more rigorous and the proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the final blend has been increased. The wines normally require at least 5 years of bottle ageing to show at their best.

Ormes de Pez 2006 is showing a magnificent dense, deep colour and lovely red fruit on the nose, with notes of blackcurrant and strawberry. After a good, smooth attack, the fruit is very present on the palate and the tannins are ripe and mellow. A very masculine Saint-Estèphe with great potential for laying down!
