2018 Ormes de Pez, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1407999 93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very dense and lively with blueberry and blackberry character. Lots of purple fruit at the end. Full body and powerful tannins. Spicy undertones with hints of black tea. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This has the luxurious kick of the Lynch Bages stable and is brilliant value for this level of quality. It seems to manage this every vintage and is just such a brilliant drinking wine. 2018 is another excellent year here, with deep fruitfulness of brambled hedgerow alongside liquorice and woodsmoke. It has a polyphenol index of 84IPT, so this is full of tannins but they don't feel overpowering. Tasted several times and always striking. 45% new oak. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The inky colored 2018 Château Ormes De Pez checks in as 50% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, and the balanced Petit Verdot that’s still aging in 45% new French oak. It offers lots of ripe black cherry and blackberry fruits intermixed with subtle violets and background oak. With building richness, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and remarkable purity of fruit, it’s another incredibly impressive Saint-Estephe that’s going to need 4-6 years of bottle age and be long-lived. 91-93+ Inner quote mark (5/2019)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 50% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot and aging in 45% new barriques, the deep purple-black colored 2018 Ormes de Pez leaps from the glass with vibrant blackberries, black cherries and mulberries scents plus touches of garrigue, tree bark and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied with bags of muscular fruit, it has a firm, grainy texture and great freshness, finishing on an herbal lift. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

Spicy toasty nose, silky texture and intense cassis fruit. Mouthwatering tannins. One of the best Ormes de Pez wines we have tasted at this early stage!
