Tasting Notes and Scores

89-91

Bordeaux Index

Quite tight, clay nose, dense and mineral with some darker fruit. Firm, dense structure, good weight of fruit which centres on red cherry and leans into black cherry and blackcurrant. A powerful expression of the vintage.

Wine Advocate

The 2021 Ormes de Pez exhibits aromas of cassis, licorice, warm spices and toasty new oak, followed by a medium-bodied, lively and nicely concentrated palate built around rich, powdery tannins that will round out with further maturation in barrel. Produced by the Cazes family of Château Lynch-Bages, it shows promise.

Neal Martin

The 2021 Ormes de Pez is matured in 45% new oak. This has a fragrant nose, very well defined, in fact, perhaps more sophisticated than the Haut-Batailley at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, a little powdery in texture, touches of graphite towards the almost Pauillac-like finish. A stylish Saint-Estèphe, this is recommended. 13.13% alcohol.

Jane Anson

This has punch and mouth-watering juicy acidities. Cheerful, enticiting, blackberry and loganberry fruits, and all is in place to add on further depth over ageing. There is rusticity that speaks of the vintage, but it is charming and this is easy to recommend. Another great vintage at Ormes de Pez, one of the value wines of the year. 45% new oak.

Matthew Jukes

Ormes de Pez goes from strength to strength, and this 2021 is a juicy and harmonious wine with bright, focussed fruit and a Merlot-led flavour of plums and mulberries. The Cabernets and Petit Verdot back up the Merlot attack giving this wine more depth and length than expected. I also anticipate it drinking well in its youth, so this is a joyous success in 2021.
