Winemakers Note

An estate owned by the Cazes family since 1940 Located in the North of the Saint-Estèphe commune, bordering the Pez hameau, the Ormes de Pez estate owes its name to a magnificent grove of elm trees which no longer exists today. Although Lynch-Bages is without a doubt the flagship of the Domaines Jean-Michel Cazes, Ormes de Pez belongs to the Medoc landscape since the 18 th century. Purchased by Jean-Charles Cazes in the wake of the Second World War, the history of these two estates is closely linked. As with the renovation of Bages village in Pauillac, near to Cordeillan-Bages, the Cazes family have developed their sense of welcome by transforming this elegant residence into a charming guest house. Château Ormes de Pez lies 60 km from Bordeaux on the Médoc peninsula. It benefits from a mild ocean climate thanks to its proximity to the estuary and the Atlantic ocean. Its 35 hectares of vineyards consist of two very distinct terroirs: the Cabernets thrive on the gravelly parcels composed of quartz and rolled pebbles whereas Merlot is best-suited to the cooler, sandy-clay parcels. These parcels have good drainage properties and are representative of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Jean Charles Cazes tells you about the 2021 vintage
