From: St. Estephe, Boreaux, France
Some very old ormes (elm trees), which no longer exist, account for the name of this property, whose history can be traced back to the 18th century. The 35-hectare vineyard is located around the hamlet of Pez and is divided into two main plots, in the center and north of the commune of Saint-Estephe.
Chateau Les Ormes des Pez has very homogenous soil (a clay gravel mixture typical of Saint-Estephe) and many of the vines are quite old. The grapes are hand-picked. After selecting the vats and blending, the wine is aged in oak barrels for 15 months in a magnificent cellar overlooking the courtyard.
Tasting Notes: A powerful and distinctive Saint-Estèphe Château Les Ormes de Pez is a harmonious, spicy and distinctive wine that reveals the authenticity of its terroir in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. It will charm you with its opulence, elegance and well-rounded structure. The palate offers robust tannins whilst retaining a smooth, fleshy side.
Nearly opaque in the glass with intense, dark-cherry fruit on the nose. There is vibrance and ripeness in spades on the palate. Fairly full but nowhere near heady or cumbersome, just layer upon layer of ripe, black fruit with a warm toasty note from new oak. Freshness runs throughout. A driven and focused st-estèphe at a very affordable level. Interestingly just 30% new oak is used at Les Ormes resulting in an appealing fruit-driven style that we expect to develop as a bordeaux to drink in the mid-term.
