Very dark red.

The nose is very pleasant dominated by mature fruits.

Fat attack with melted tannins and long aftertaste.

The beautiful old 18th-century building (formally the stables and cowshed) was renovated in 1993 and is now used to age the wine in barrel.

The technical installations were entirely renovated starting in 1990. Since then, fermentation has been carried out in 18 temperature-controlled, stainless-steel vats all equipped with a temperature control system. The final blending is made about two months after the harvest.

The whole winemaking process is very traditional. After fermentation, once vats have been selected for blending, the wine is aged in oak barrels for 15 months. During that period, the wine is racked 3-4 times. The aim of this process is to separate the wine from its lees. This is carried out from barrel to barrel, and the clarity is checked by stopping the flow, filling a glass of wine and holding it up to a candle. Once it starts to look cloudy, the racking stops.

The wines of Chateau Les Ormes de Pez are powerful and well-balanced. They are typical of the appellation: rich, round and quite tannic.
