Château Ormes de Pez is owned by the Cazes family who also owns Château Lynch-Bages, the grand cru classé of Pauillac. According to the family, the wines from Ormes de Pez are made with the same care and attention as those from Château Lynch-Bages:
"Our technical teams, overseen by Tonio Sanfins, prioritise integrated methods of agriculture which include the use of neutral products for the environment, optimised plant-health control and fallow periods for soil rest. Grapes are harvested by hand."
"The wine shows very pretty fruit with spices and milk chocolate. Full body, with velvety tannins and an attractive finish." - James Suckling, Rating: 91"
