Spicy red and black plums with assorted red fruit aromas open to a medium/full bodied, tannic, bright wine that will drink well young. Give it 2-3 more years and drink it over the following decade. 89 Points

2000 Château Les Ormes de Pez  (St. Estèphe) 88

1961 Château Les Ormes de Pez  (St. Estèphe) 90

Red berries, forest floor and clay in the nose. The wine is light in color and density, but there is a charming personality and sweetness to the fruit and good length in the finish. This was surprisingly good. I’m sure that has a lot to do with the provenance, as this was just a beautiful bottle. For a Bordeaux of this quality from 1961, due to its low price, it’s worth seeking out a bottle or two. 90 Points
