Château Ormes de Pez Saint-Estèphe Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel

Located in the village of Pez, whose name comes from the ancient French word meaning “peace”, the Château Ormes de Pez covers 40 hectares of vineyards. The château has been linked to the Cazes family for more than a century. Although Lynch-Bages is without a doubt the flagship of the Domaines Jean-Michel Cazes, Ormes de Pez belongs to the Medoc landscape since the 18th century. Purchased by Jean-Charles Cazes in the wake of the Second World War, the history of these two estates is closely linked.
The wines from Ormes de Pez are powerful yet characterized by their harmonious structure. They are indulgent, pleasurable and combine a smooth, fleshy texture with the distinctive elegance of a Saint-Estèphe.

This 2016 vintage is characterized by richness, finesse and elegance: it has everything it takes to become a great vintage.
