2019 Chateau Ormes de Pez Saint Estephe

Regular price $34.98

Chateau Ormes de Pez resides north of the Saint-Estephe in Bordeaux. The name ‘Ormes’  comes from magnificent elm trees that once grew on the property, you can still see the elm trees represented on the label. The Chateau was purchased by Jean-Charles Cazes just after the Second World War. You may be more familiar with a few other labels from the Cazes family, who also own Château Lynch-Bages and other estates within the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation. 

Chateau Ormes de Pez is less than 40 miles from the Medoc peninsula and benefits greatly from a cool ocean climate. There are two distinct soil types on the property that help their two main varieties planted. Their Cabernet Sauvignon accounts for 54% of their vineyards with pebble and quarts, whereas 34% of Merlot grows in sandy clay soils. The rest of the vineyards grow Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. All traditional varieties found in Bordeaux.

This 2019 Ormes de Pez has hints of pencil box shavings and tobacco with intense flavors of blackberry and fig. A medium body red with smooth tannins and a detailed finish. Always good value, it can often be attractive in its youth but great vintages can mature for decades. 

(92-94) Wine Advocate - Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Ormes de Pez comes bounding out of the glass with energetic scents of black raspberries, fresh blackberries and crushed blackcurrants plus suggestions of menthol, dark chocolate, cedar chest and pencil lead with a hint of rose oil. Medium-bodied, the palate has electrically charged black fruit flavors with compelling tension and beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins, finishing long and perfumed. Delicious!

Shipping Policy

Open tab
  • Unless your delivery address is on the West Coast, we strongly discourage you from selecting “Ground Service” as your shipping method. During the winter and summer months, weather conditions (temperature) and longer delivery times can often result in the spoilage of your order. It doesn’t make sense to invest in fine wines and then take the chance of ruining them due environmental factors during transit (faster and safer delivery generally isn’t much more expensive). We don’t make an additional profit on accelerated delivery, but we frequently recommend faster shipping options to our customers outside the West Coast.
  • You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages.  Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an “Adult Signature Required” sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that an adult will have to be present at the time of delivery.  Please consider shipping to an office address.
  • During periods of extreme weather, we attempt to ship wines at the beginning of each week in order to get shipments to you before the weekend. This is because we have no control over the temperature conditions at our freight carriers’ warehouses. The result may be that your shipment doesn’t go out the day that you place an order.
  • We ship by Fedex or Fedex Ground. Our prices include packaging materials. Insurance may be available for an additional charge.
  • Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. in its sole judgment believes that such shipment will not subject Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. violates the law, we suggest that the buyer provide an alternative address in another state or have their wine shipped to a third-party storage facility in a direct shipping-friendly state.
  • Various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages that may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction by a purchaser from another state without requiring the purchaser, a seller or shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. does not, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying or obtaining any permits or licenses. Therefore, we recommend that you investigate the possibility of such limitations, and determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages shall be brought into your state from California, so as to comply with all of your state’s requirements.
  • Wine shipping rules in the United States are controlled by the state you live in. We do not ship wine to the following states at this time:
