Mr Derenoncourt, Bordeaux's most sought-after consultant, is also a producer. Obviously, he (with his wife) applies in his vineyards the methods that have made his success: respect for the terroir and biotope, subtle vinification and maturation, wines of great aromatic precision.
Bettane & Desseauve : 93-94/100 « Une matière enveloppante, soyeuse et profonde qui grâce à l’élevage et au temps va gagner en complexité et révéler toute sa dimension et sa finesse. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2020 Domaine de L'A is incredibly reticent today. Given how well it ages, that should not be a huge concern. Dark-fleshed fruit, graphite and spice gradually open with a bit of coaxing, all framed by bright saline notes that build into the persistent finish. I imagine the 2020 is going to need a number of years to shine. It is a hugely promising wine, even in the very early going. »
