2021 Chateau Ormes de Pez Pre-Arrival Offer
The 2021 Ormes de Pez exhibits aromas of cassis, licorice, warm spices and toasty new oak, followed by a medium-bodied, lively and nicely concentrated palate built around rich, powdery tannins that will round out with further maturation in barrel. Produced by the Cazes family of Château Lynch-Bages, it shows promise.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Apr 2022)
The 2021 Ormes de Pez is matured in 45% new oak. This has a fragrant nose, very well defined, in fact, perhaps more sophisticated than the Haut-Batailley at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, a little powdery in texture, touches of graphite towards the almost Pauillac-like finish. A stylish Saint-Estèphe, this is recommended. 13.13% alcohol. Drink 2027-2055.
Neal Martin - Vinous
The 2021 Ormes de Pez is deep, plush, layered and very expressive. Dark cherry, plum and spice open first, followed by bright floral and savory accents that lend vibrancy. There is a bit of graininess in the tannin, but hopefully élevage will polish some of those contours. Drink 2024-2036.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
Medium-bodied with a firm tannin frame and pretty notes of pencil lead, blackberries and some walnuts. Hints of chocolate orange, too. Structured and a little chewy, with perfumed character. Juicy. 49% merlot, 40% cabernet sauvignon, 6% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot.
Managed by the team at Lynch-Bages, the 2021 Château Ormes De Pez comes from a 40-hectare vineyard in Saint-Estèphe. Medium to full-bodied, it has ripe tannins, good depth of fruit, and classic notes of darker fruits, loamy earth, tobacco leaf, and chalky minerality.
Medium-bodied, the wine is fresh, juicy, sweet and vibrant with a complex finish loaded with round-textured, herbs, black raspberries, menthol and plums that last through to the endnote. Drink from 2024-2043.
Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
Sweet strawberry, orange, grapefruit, plums and blackcurrants, but the sweet jammy kind. This is fruit forward and expressive out the gate, round and so appealing. Spiced aspects from the Petit Verdot with a sturdy backbone in terms of structure and frame. Tannins are more on the austere side, fine and detailed, extremely mouthfilling but you can almost taste each one with the minerality coming through strongly leaving that clean wet stone taste in the mouth. Ripe and juicy dark fruit also. This is medium bodied with lots of precision in terms of detail. Lovely potential here. 5% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 3.68pH. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040.
