Les Ormes, Saint-Julien 2009

1* Guide Hachette 2013

Owners Fabienne & Philippe Pairault make their wine in total respect to the environment and wouldn’t have it any other way. For them it is not an obligation but a life choice that will affect generations to come.

In 2008 they employed the young beautiful, brilliant and dynamic Diana Garcia-Gonza­lez, winemaker at Château les Ormes, who with some gentle love and attention made this wine into possibly the finest value for money in the appellation. The 2009 Château Les Ormes is evolving gracefully since last tasted just about a year ago. Today, the wine shows absolutely gorgeous aromas of dark cherries, dark plum, spices, floral, licorice along with some hints of tobacco. It’s beautifully balanced and supported by velvety tannins which are well integrated. The finish is long and caressing with dark fruits and a spicy edge. Although this is excellent today, it will still benefit from some bottle age. (Best 2014-2025) – October, 2013 (JD) International Report
