Chateau Les Ormes De Pez 2019
The estate is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (54%), Merlot (37%), Cabernet Franc (7%) Petit Verdot (2%) with an average vine age of 30 years/ vine density of 9,000 vines per ha. Generally, the wine is aged in 50% new, French oak barrels for close to 15 months before bottling.
91-93 points Antonio Galloni - Vinous “The 2019 Ormes de Pez is ample and creamy, with a real sense of resonance that emerges with a bit of time in the glass. Inky dark fruit, leather, licorice and scorched earth are nicely pushed forward here. A wine of depth and power, Ormes de Pez is very nicely done”.
92-94 points Neal Martin - Vinous “The 2019 Ormes de Pez has an intense bouquet of blackberry, bilberry, pencil box and light fumé aromas, nicely defined but demanding encouragement from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, pliant tannins almost unrecognizable from the somewhat sturdy offerings in the past. It feels seductively smooth in texture with a very satisfying, detailed finish. One of the best Ormes de Pez that I have tasted in recent years”.
92-93 points James Suckling”Plenty of spice and plums on the nose. Full body, round tannins and flavorful finish. Raspberries and hazelnuts at the end”.
