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.
Offered En Primeur, landing Spring 2022.
