"Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. The Les Ormes de Pez is a little taciturn on the nose, perhaps due to its recent bottling, struggling to rustle up blackberry, tar and cedar aromas. They will evolve with time. The palate is medium-bodied and packed full of black, tarry fruit. Good acidity and composed towards the finish, although it needs to develop that elusive element...a personality. Wait and see. Tasted October 2011."

"Tasted at Chateau Lynch Bages, this Ormes de Pez is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, matured in 40% new oak, this 09 Les Ormes de Pez has a deep, garnet colour. The nose is very pure, very focused, tightly would at first, a certain strictness to this Saint Estephe. Not as earthy as other wines, subtle aromas of black cherries, a touch of cassis, cedar and sandalwood. Good definition, but despite coaxing it is relatively closed at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, quite peppery on the entry, nicely balanced, masculine as usual, a saline note towards the finish that is quite linear at the moment. This is like a tightly coiled spring but it should drink well after 6-8 years year of ageing, which this wine usually needs. Tasted March 2010."
