Château Les Ormes de Pez, St Estèphe, 2016

Tasting Note:

Produced from 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 52% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, this Jean Michel Cazes owned St Estephe Chateau is made in a similar vein to its big brother, Lynch Bages. That is to say, this is dark and brooding and seriously well constructed. Liqueur chocolates, kirsch, black cherry; there's really good concentration, large-scale tannins as well as fine acidity and an overall impression of freshness. As ever, this St Estephe will be a good value buy.
