    Without artifice, Figeac wines display an unparalleled naturalness, freshness and distinction. For example, with the finesse and superlative silkiness of the 2008 sound tannins, already appreciable.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 98/100 « Le vin absolu par son raffinement dans tous les secteurs, avec plus de fraîcheur aromatique que sur le légendaire 2016 et une pureté dans la persistance apportée par de sublimes cabernets. »
    Revue du Vin de France : 17-18/20 « Expression charmeuse de cabernets à la maturité très aboutie. Les contours tanniques de la chair sont d'une grande finesse. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 17/20 « Tanins veloutés, crayeux, frais, très enrobés, juteux, boisé fin, graphite, amer fin, finale effilée. »
    Quarin : 97/100 « Moelleux à l'attaque, ultra fondant au développement, très, très aromatique et accompagné d'un gras fin que je ne lui ai jamais connu à cet âge, ce vin très hédoniste (c'est nouveau) caresse le palais. C'est très bon. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 96-99/100 « The 2018 Figeac is simply magnificent. A regal, soaring wine with tremendous vertical lift and nuance, the 2018 is marvelously complete from the very first taste. Medium in body and refined, the 2018 is vibrant, with fine tannins and, frankly, quite a bit more freshness than I expected to see given the very dry, sunny summer. The 2018 Figeac is brilliant. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 96-98/100 « This is a dense Figeac with impressive body. Cool, calm and collected on the finish, this is one of the wines of the vintage. »

    Neither quite Saint-Émilion nor really Pomerol, the inimitable Cheval Blanc occupies a special place on the right bank, on the famous gravelly soil of the Figeac plateau.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 99/100 « La profondeur est liée à l’acidité et au tannin qui se répondent l’un et l’autre. On a la texture de cachemire des plus grands millésimes avec une aromatique florale et fruité qui surpassera 1998. Une grande émotion. »
    Revue du Vin de France : 18-18,5/20 « Monumental, tourné à la fois vers le soleil et vers une évolution sur le très long terme. La maitrise de la masse tannique suscite l'admiration. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 18-18,5/20 « Beaucoup d'éclat, amer fin, tanins denses, racés, rose, violette, juteux, trame douce, élégante. »
    Quarin : 100/100 « Jamais je n'ai goûté Cheval Blanc à ce niveau en primeur. En bouche, ce millésime présente le moelleux le plus exquis que je connaisse dans cette propriété. Le vin se déroule pulpeux, fondant et aérien de part en part, avec une minutie de réalisation exceptionnelle. Il persiste très longtemps et surtout, il est impossible à cracher. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 97-100/100 « The 2018 Cheval Blanc is dazzling. Creamy, supple and inviting,the 2018 is endowed with phenomenal balance. The tannins and overall structure are imposing, and yet the richness of the fruit and perfect ripeness of the tannin really stand out. I am struck by how much freshness and energy the 2018 has. A precise counterpoint of fruit richness and finesse makes for a truly unforgettable Cheval Blanc. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « It is not a flamboyant Cheval Blanc, stricter than expected and in some ways overriding the excessive tendencies of the growing season. »

    In 2004, Jean-Michel Chartron gave a new impetus to his estate, with the chance to have an extraordinary land heritage (the Clos des Chevaliers is the best part of the Chevalier-Montrachet, itself considered the best grand cru in Puligny after Montrachet). Mineral, nervous, powerful and long, its wines are among the greatest in Puligny. Rated two stars in the Revue du Vin de France guide.

    Appointment

    Jean-Michel Chartron was doubly elected "Winegrower of the Year": in the magazine "Bourgogne Aujourd'hui" in March 2018 and in the Hachette guide in September 2018.

    Jean-Michel Chartron "The fruit was in extraordinarily good health, and the weather was perfect, allowing each winemaker to harvest at the optimum moment. The mood was serene across the whole wine region, producers enjoying this magnificent vintage that combined quality and quantity. Many think this will be one of the best vintages in many years. In 2018, the aromatic complexity of the white wines is incredible. They are explosive on the nose, with an amazing diversity that reflects each terroir. The wines have a certain crispness and good minerality. In the mouth, they are rounded and generous, balanced with a nice tension."
