The wines from Ormes de Pez are powerful yet characterised by their harmonious structure. They are indulgent, pleasurable and combine a smooth, fleshy texture with the distinctive elegance of a Saint-Estèphe.
Made using the traditional grape varieties, these wines are rich, full-bodied and generous. They are made of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and complemented by a significant amount of Merlot for a combination of longevity and smoothness. The resulting wines are rich and fruity with a rather imposing tannic backbone. They are seductive in their youth and develop their finesse after a few years of bottle age.
This Ormes de Pez vintage, with its intense colour and aromas of dark fruit, is powerful yet balanced, characterised by a generous palate and beautifully ripe tannins.
"The dark berries, sandalwood and cedar aromas are certainly memorable. Full-bodied, dense and rich in the center palate with ripe, polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Dense and powerful. Try after 2025." - 94 points, James Suckling
"The 2016 Ormes de Pez is a very expressive wine. Iron, smoke, savory herbs, licorice, pomegranate and blood orange all give the 2016 a distinctly feral, savory quality to play off the bright red toned fruit. Supple and pliant in the glass, with lovely complexity, the 2016 is wonderfully complex and nuanced. This pleasantly rustic, hearty Saint-Estèphe will drink well upon release." - 92 points, Antonio Galloni Vinous
