A stellar property in the northernmost appellation of Saint-Estèphe, Ormes de Pez has delivered reliable, terroir-driven claret to its thousands of followers in the UK for years and years. Characteristically smooth tannins sit alongside that Saint-Estèphe spiciness on the finish. This year’s wine sits along the same lines as the 2010 and the 2016 vintages - superb bellwethers indeed - delivering real structure and a superb, long finish. This was a joy to taste and will be a jewel in many Members’ cellars. In a year where Saint-Estèphe estates scored incredibly highly, this is a must buy based on the price alone!
