2010 Ormes de Pez, St-Estèphe

SKU #1136609 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wonderful aromas of currants and blackberries with hints of spices. Full body, with fabulous tannins and a long and creamy texture to the finish. I love the depth of fruit to this. Best ever from here. Great value for the vintage. Try in 2017. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Although this wine has tannins, it's the fruit that shines, with its delicious black-currant flavor and acidity. It is more fine and elegant than it is powerful, a pleasant surprise from Saint-Estèphe in this vintage For medium-term aging. (RV) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark and winey, with good damson plum, black currant and mulled spice notes pushed by a tangy iron note and flecks of savory and chalk on the finish. The judicious toast lets the pure fruit drive along. Best from 2015 through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Intense red cherry, raspberry and floral aromas are complicated by hints of cassis and dried herbs. Then quite fruity on the palate, with a luscious quality to the ripe red and black fruit flavors that suggests late-harvested grapes. Finishes clean and long, with a trace of heat and polished tannins. Quite successful. (ID) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Reserved, tarry nose. Fine expression of ripe Cabernet fruit on the palate, with lots of grip and vigour, and no loss of elegance. Solid and elegant. Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Hint of sweet, very slightly oily, oak on the nose. Slithery texture and masses of acidity on the finish, as well as a medium charge of tannins. A tad austere. Acidity rather than genuine freshness of fruit. 17-/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A fleshy, attractive, up-front style of wine with plenty of sweet cherry and black currant fruit along with a hint of licorice, this wine is pure, medium-bodied and very fresh, with surprisingly low acidity for a 2010. Drink it over the next decade. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2013)
