Chateau Les Ormes de Pez 2016

Out of stock
France / 750ML / 2016

The 2016 Les Ormes de Pez is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 52% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot picked from 28 September until 12 October. It has an impressive bouquet: blackcurrants, boysenberry and cr?Ÿ??me de cassis, all with very well integrated new oak. There is a lot of panache here, a word perhaps I have not associated with this Saint Est?Ÿ??phe in recent years. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a lovely grainy texture, quite pure with lovely blackberry, melted tar and slightly savory, almost meaty notes. Harmonious right to the end, this is an excellent Les Ormes de Pez that seems to revel in the 2016 vintage. This might be one of the best wines from the estate.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points - Wine Advocate

Ratings
This dense wine is full of generous fruits and a fine structure. Already balanced, notes of blackberry are hit with touches of spice and dark chocolate. Made by the team at Lynch-Bages, this has similar elegance. Barrel Sample: 93?›ƒ?ªƒ??95 Points Wine Enthusiast
Awards
This sports a juicy core of damson plum and red currant fruit, backed by a strong mineral edge that lends ample cut and drive to the finish. Shows pleasant austerity, with the structure to age. Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points Wine Spectator

Other Notes
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. Ch?Ÿ?›teau Les Ormes des Pez has very homogeneous 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.
