ABOUT THE WINE
Known as Domaine de Pez in the 1500s, the current name was taken after the French Revolution, and refers to the elm trees that used to grow on the estate, around the town of Pez. The chateau has been in the Cazes family since 1940 when it was purchase by Jean-Charles Cazes. The winemaking facilities were renovated in 1993, and the winemaking team is shared with Chateau Lynch-Bages. New oak is used to add extra richness to the wine, and over time the percentage of Merlot has gradually increased. A well-earned reputation for consistency and quality has made Ormes de Pez one of the most sought after Cru Bourgeois wines.

TASTING NOTES
Fruity, with tobacco and herbal spice notes adding complexity. Finished on a dusty red cherry note. Medium-bodied; from an exceptional vintage.

FOOD PAIRING
The high proportion of Merlot in the blend lends this to lighter stews and meat dishes.
