Made by the team from Château Lynch-Bages, this estate crafts wines in the same generous style. A firm, tannic edge gives structure to the juicy acidity and black currant flavors. Drink from 2018.
A pretty wine with spice, black pepper and berry character. Medium body with firm tannins and a fresh finish Bright and lively.
High-pitched, with brisk pomegranate, red currant and plum pit notes at the core, carried by tangy acidity and finishing with a slightly taut iron edge. A touch shy on depth but has good energy. Best from 2017 through 2020.
The 2013 Les Ormes de Pez has a respectable bouquet with raspberry and wild strawberry scents, a touch of cedar coming through and developing an almost Pauillac-like persona. The palate is a little tinny on the entry, but the mid-palate has respectable weight with more red than black fruit, gently building to a single, peppery finish that cuts away quickly. Still, this represents decent luncheon Claret if nothing more.
Gently aromatic - dark fruit, graphite, very slightly herbaceous but not green. Lovely and juicy on the palate. Texture is dry but balanced by adequate dark fruit. Juicy length. Julia Harding MW
