Ormes de Pez

the Cazes family
Dating back to the mid-18th century, Ormes de Pez was named after the tall, century-old elms growing there.

Acquired by Jean- Charles Cazes in 1940, this was his second property, after Lynch- Bages in 1939. Located on the outskirts of the hamlet of Pez, to the west of the commune of Saint-Estèphe, the estate is split into two quite distinct terroirs: plots of gravelly rises on quartz and river stones, which are perfect for the Cabernets, and cooler plots consisting of sand and clay, suitable for Merlot. The same high standards are applied here as at Château Lynch-Bages: from vineyard management to fermentation and ageing.

True expressions of their terroir, Les Ormes de Pez has a spicy, voluptuous character with great tannic structure.

The 18th century manor house and its adjoining outbuildings, cellars, and low stone walls blend in beautifully with the estate’s 40 hectares of vines. In addition, the château’s five guest rooms provide a calm and relaxing atmosphere in lovely setting.

This is the perfect place for creating a great wine as well as enjoying a delightful stay at the heart of the wine country.
