Château Les Ormes-de-Pez 2002

I love Bordeaux bottles! They tell you absolutely nothing about the wine, google helped me out on that one, which happens to be a 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot blend.  Even though the wine ranks on the 9th level of the cru Bourgeois classification I’d be happy to serve this anytime.

What I first notice is the wine has very good length and bright fruit, well you can’t really call tobacco, green capsicum and gravel fruit but you get what I mean.  There is a sense of crushed violets, chalk and coffee beans coming into play, mixed with tart plums, which is only let down by a watery finish on the back palate.

Alcohol: 13%
Price: 18 euro per half bottle
Rated: 89
Drink: 2011-2016
