Ormes de Pez has in the past taken reflected glory from Lynch (Haut-Batailley is stealing some of that now). We mustn't forget what a great, all-round wine this is in its own right. A Cru Bourgeois but with real terroir and the benefit of Cazes investment and know-how, this is a great, affordable expression of classic St.-Estèphe structure, made in a traditional style. Sometimes rustic when compared with Lynch (an unfair comparison, but we often taste them side-by-side) the 2019 has the very refined tannins associated with the vintage.

Tasting Notes"Plenty of punch in this Ormes de Pez, full of rich ripe black fruits, traces of exotic spices of cinnamon and saffron from the heat of the summer, and brilliant value if looking for personality and appellation signature in St Estèphe. Blend completed with 3% Petit Verdot. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038. 92 points" Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine
