Château-Les-Ormes-de-Pez Saint Estephe 2005

SKU 02850


Ormes de Pez 2005 displays a magnificent dense, deep colour, and a delightful, highly-spiced nose of ripe fruits with hints of liquorice and pepper. Velvety sweet but very dense tannins on the palate. Lovely liquorice finish.

Wine Enthusiast91-93 Barrel sample. Rich, packed with superripe fruit and huge tannins, this wine still manages to keep elegance, power tempered with velvet: an impressive combination.

Wine SpectatorA perfumed young red, with plum and spices. Medium-bodied, with round tannins and a delicious, fruity, light spice aftertaste. There's a pretty balance to this. Best after 2011.

Wine AdvocateA somewhat monolithic, one-dimensional effort from one of my favorite St.-Estephe estates, the medium-bodied, fruity 2005 Les Ormes de Pez exhibits sweet black currant, damp earth, and fresh mushroom-like characteristics. It should be consumed over the next 7-8 years.
