Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
Really vibrant with lovely notes of plum violet and cherry preserves laced with chalky cut that stretches out the finish. Very very solid. -J.M.

Tasted at Lynch-Bages and the UGC the vineyard suffered some hail damage and some parcels lost as much as 30-40% of the crop and the yield which is 44hl/ha. The Les Ormes de Pez is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon 45% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot raised in 45% new oak. It has a very sensual very pure bouquet with dark cherries boysenberry wild hedgerow mint and a touch of vanilla much more feminine than the wines of the past. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins on the entry very good ripeness here and the Cabernet Sauvignon is really in harmony with the ripe Merlot. Voluminous and silky smooth towards the finish this is an outstanding Les Ormes de Pez. Drink 2015-

From the seam technical team as Chateau Lynch Bages in Pauillac blending 57% Cabernet Sauvignon 34% Merlot 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot produced a deeply colored wine with scents of stone cassis and coffee bean. With round tannins and a soft entry the wine finishes with sweet cassis and black cherry flavors supple textures and freshness.

From 36 year-old vines yielding 44hl/ha. 45% new oak. A perfumed nose exhibits brambly blackberry crushed rock graphite and spice. At this point plus concentration of black raspberry and boysenberry dominate the palate with power and density and the texture of a briary tobacco spice - not just primary but evolved. This wine shows the power of St. Estephe in the 2010 vintage where the concentration of fruit is intense and offers a wonderfully complex terroir expression of the cabernet sauvignon making this a candidate for sleeper of the vintage.
