Deep and intense colour. Generous and fresh nose of ripe fruits. Red and
black berries mixed with lightly peppery spices. Menthol and liquorice.
Immediate fruit and freshness on the palate. Full-bodied wine with structuring ripe and supple tannins without hiding finesse and complexity. Nice acidity gives tension and freshness. Very long class finish.
Intense and velvety with a colourful complexion, get darkening towards magenta; its nose reminds ripe black fruits (blackcurrant, cherry), evolving to animal notes after few years. Its structure, its concentration and its fruit reveal a character which is decided to convince.
Château Les Ormes de Pez is a harmonious, spicy and distinctive wine that reveals the authenticity of its terroir in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. It will charm you with its opulence, elegance and well-rounded structure. The palate offers robust tannins whilst retaining a smooth, fleshy side.
“A delicious concoction of red and black fruits, spice box, and earth as well as a silky textured, medium-bodied style emerge (…) round tannins, delicious fruit and forward character (…)” (The Wine Advocate | 212)
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot
Dark robe; its nose evokes at first fresh fruits aromas then develops towards a touch of spice. It is charming in their straight forward spontaneity. Its flavour is both firm and well-rounded, brought out by a good acidity and fine tannins.
This quintessential Pauillac offers an intense and profound sensory experience of great complexity. Château Pichon Baron exhibits elegance, intensity and exceptional length on the palate. It is a wine that improves year after year and can age for over 40 years in the cellar.
This vintage, still in its youth, evoques a warm, sented atmosphere reminiscent of linden blossom and hyacinths. It’s just like biting into a fresh grape. This is a robust wine with deep, long flavours. There is nothing aggressive here, the silky, elegant, ever accessible tannins roll like marbles around the palate.
