Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

This is tight and precise, with lots of cut from start to finish, as chiseled graphite and iron notes support the dark currant, mulled fig and crushed blackberry fruit. Long and toasty, but well-integrated on the lilac-tinged finish.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

A big, fruity, hedonistic style of wine, the 2009 Les Ormes de Pez has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of incense and barbecue smoke and oodles of black berry and cassis fruit. It is medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins and low acidity. This attractive, very hedonistic style of wine should drink well for at least a decade.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

Bright ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and mint are lifted by a floral note. Supple, dry and vinous, showing a classic Saint-Estephe coolness and finesse. Not at all sweet but offers good penetration to its suave dark fruit flavors. The building tannins coat the front teeth. Nicely done.

On this nose, this dark purple Bordeaux smells strongly of blueberries. On the palate, it is tight, but with tongue coating tannins and lots of blueberry fruit. There's lots of potential here for a very nice wine with much rest in a good cellar.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
