Tasting Note:

Jean-Charles Cazes coined the 2018 vintage 'Purple Rain', a literal rather than metaphorical title we think. There's nothing melancholic about these wines, they are brimming with life and joy. As we have said in the past, Ormes de Pez offers a lot of wine for the money. It certainly shares the same DNA as big brother Lynch Bages with a subdued and refined palate of dark fruit. Taut and muscular with a nice floral aromatic quality and a serious core of cassis, creme de mûre and minerals, framed by saline grippy tannins. Another excellent effort, but more Raspberry Beret than Purple Rain. 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
