  • ”The 2014 Les Ormes de Pez was backward and surly on the nose, touches of gravel and graphite, but the fruit felt a little suppressed at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin. It felt a little pinched, but the finish shows vivacity and focus with graphite-infused black fruit. It just cuts away swiftly on the finish. This is one of the few 2014s that I felt did not match up to its showing in barrel, then again, it often does repay several years down in the cellar."Neal Martin

  • ”This is a soft, consumer-friendly style of wine from Les Ormes de Pez from the Cazes family, who have done so much for the village of Pauillac and their own wines, such as Lynch-Bages. They have turned out a luscious, dark ruby/purple wine with sweet cassis fruit, an uncomplicated, medium-bodied mouthfeel and very velvety tannin." Robert Parker

  • ”A big, fruity, hedonistic style of wine, the 2009 Les Ormes de Pez has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of incense and barbecue smoke and oodles of black berry and cassis fruit. It is medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins and low acidity. This attractive, very hedonistic style of wine should drink well for at least a decade.“ Robert Parker

  • "Fully mature, this nice chunky, fleshy wine displays notes of jus de viande, roasted herbs, plum sauce, black currants, and sweet cherries in a medium-bodied, savory, fruit-forward style. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.” Robert Parker

  • "A successful effort, as well as a reasonably good value, this dark ruby/purple-colored 1998 exhibits copious quantities of cassis fruit along with earthy, underbrush notes. Medium to full-bodied, with fine concentration, excellent texture, and a soft, spicy, peppery finish, it will drink well for 10-12 years.” Robert Parker

  • "The 1996 Les Ormes de Pez seems to have mellowed since the last time that I tasted it: mulberry and a touch of dried fig, a touch of allspice coming through with time. The palate is fully mature with fine tannin, quite saline and almost brine-like, tapering in slightly towards the finish. It is a little "serious" like some 1996s tend to be, a touch of Sichuan pepper on the finish. I would drink this sooner rather than later.” Robert Parker

One of St-Estèphe's leading Cru Bourgeois properties, the estate is located just outside of the village of Pez in the northern part of St-Estèphe. The 32 hectares of vineyards are planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The wines have become much richer and more fruit driven in the last decade and require at least 5 years bottle ageing to show at their best.
