Les-Ormes-de-Pez-St-Estephe-2015

Les Ormes de Pez, (St. Estephe), 2015

ʺThe 2015 Les Ormes de Pez is a blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot that is being matured in 45% new oak. It has a well-defined bouquet with blackberry and bilberry fruit, although compared to recent vintages, it does not quite possess the same fruit intensity, feels just a little muted at this stage. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, nicely balanced though a little angular at the moment. It needs just a bit more fruit to fill out the final third. Give this 4-5 years of bottle age and you will have a decent, if not top-tier Les Ormes de Pez." – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
