Description

With a violet, almost Pomerol character, the 2009 Ormes de Pez is a seductive, concentrated wine with ripe, juicy mulberry fruit and ultra-ripe tannins providing structure. A smooth, velvety mouthfeel and wonderful harmony on the palate make this a truly gorgeous wine. This would be a brilliant value buy.

Ch. Ormes de Pez was the first wine on my value list and really is one of the best 2009s under £300. Made by the same team and in the same meticulous style as Ch. Lynch Bages, it is a seductive, concentrated wine with ripe, juicy mulberry fruit and ultra-ripe tannins providing structure. A smooth, velvety mouth feel and wonderful harmony on the palate make this a truly gorgeous wine.
