Puyguéraud is the reference in the Côtes de Francs, producing very high quality wines with great regularity. The owners, Nicolas and Cyrille Thienpont, also takes care of Pavie-Macquin and Larcis-Ducasse in St-Émilion. Always impeccable price/quality ratio.
Bettane & Desseauve : 90-91/100
Galloni (Vinous) : 89-91/100 « The 2020 Puygueraud is a huge, inky wine. Blackberry jam, graphite, dark chocolate, licorice and espresso infuse it with tons of depth, and yet there is good freshness and plenty of savory intensity that builds into the finish. In a word: terrific. »
Martin (Vinous) : 89-91/100 « The 2020 Puygueraud presents a nose of earthy, broody black fruit infused with tobacco and cigar humidor; a faint touch of bell pepper surfaces with further aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grainy tannins and plenty of black fruit laced with tobacco and black pepper that lends it a Left Bank personality. Classic in style, this is a promising Francs Côtes de Bordeaux. »
