Neal Martin scored the wine 92-94, noting that “this is an excellent Les Ormes de Pez that seems to revel in the 2016 vintage. This might be one of the best wines from the estate.” James Suckling awarded a score of 93-94, commenting that the wine was “powerful and structured with lots of blueberry, blackberry and currant character. Fantastic. Juicy.”

Buyers looking for value should bear in mind that Ormes de Pez 2016 has the highest average critic score out of all back vintages, yet has been released at a discount to lower scoring wines from comparably good vintages, such as the 2005 and the 2009.
