    Advised by Mr. Derenoncourt, Clos Fourtet regularly and unobtrusively demonstrates that the upper part of the Saint-Émilion plateau can produce wines as great as the Ausone or Pavie hillsides. Sobriety, depth, finesse and intensity are exemplary.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 94-95/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 96-97/100 « Une extraction très douce procure au vin beaucoup de finesse, la minéralité des calcaires du plateau lui confère son élégance. Ce saint-émilion profond dévoile ici un profil aérien avec un fruit gorgé de sève et un tanin crayeux. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Quarin : 95/100 « Nez très aromatique, fin, au fruité mûr et frais. Moelleux en entrée de bouche, ample au milieu, avec un corps juteux et fondant, le vin évolue avec beaucoup de goût en finale. Il s’étire longtemps sur un grain fin et des sensations fraîches. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « The 2019 Clos Fourtet is exotic and beguiling in the glass. Inky dark fruit, licorice, espresso, menthol and lavender all run through this sumptuous, beautifully resonant Saint-Émilion with bright mineral underpinnings that extend the finish effortlessly. A regal, exquisite wine »
    Martin (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « The palate is medium-bodied but (as expected) contains more weight and girth compared to its peers. Firm grip, solid and yet graceful, there is a crescendo of flavours towards its heady, focused and very persistent finish. Wonderful salinity in the mouth, the aftertaste is one of the longest you will find on the Right Bank. Fabulous. »

    Bettane & Desseauve : 95-96/100 « Le crémeux de texture est l'un des plus purs de Saint-Émilion. Le vin évolue ensuite par paliers savoureux et la finale s'impose avec charme et fraîcheur. »
    Revue du Vin de France : 96-97/100 « Le pur style Valandraud pour ce millésime au parfait équilibre, entre le velours chatoyant de la matière et la fraîcheur du fruit caractéristique de 2019. Le nez sur la cerise juteuse et la feuille de tabac évolue en permanence à l’aération. Le milieu de bouche pulpeux et lisse livre en finale le souffle de fraîcheur qui anoblit le vin. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Quarin : 95/100 « Nez très aromatique, avec un fond de fruits noirs et d'épices. Moelleux à l'attaque, dense au développement, plutôt parfumé, le vin se développe à la fois plein et juteux, sur des saveurs truffées et une tannicité parfaitement enrobée. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « A regal, statuesque wine, the 2019 Valandraud dazzles from the very first taste. Deep, beautifully textured and expansive, the 2019 races across the palate with stunning energy and pure vibrancy. A wine of notable power and explosive richness, Valandraud is truly magical in 2019. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 96-98/100 « The multi-layered dark cherry and plummy fruit is underpinned by a killer line of acidity. The finish feels pixelated to the n'th degree. This is a formidable wine from Jean-Luc Thunevin and ranks amongst the very best Right Bank wines of this vintage. »

    Jonathan Maltus, a British citizen, bought his first vines in the 1990s in Saint-Emilion, with the aim of creating a vineyard made up of plot selections in the image of the great Burgundian estates. His plots are worked and vinified separately, with a heritage of old vines managed at low yields (30 hl/ha) in order to draw the quintessence of each terroir. Remarkable vintages, little known in France but much sought after by English and American wine lovers.

    Born in 1996, Le Dôme is his first micro vintage (3.61 ha), coming from 3 contiguous plots near Ch. Angélus, halfway up the hillside. Predominantly Cabernet Franc (80%, vines planted in 1960-1970), Le Dôme is an intense, deep wine with an impressive tannic structure carefully coated, with a long finish.

    Galloni (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The 2019 Le Dôme is a wine of pure and total sensuality. Far more restrained than it can be, the 2019 possesses tremendous nuance and plenty of intensity, but it is also less of a bruiser than it can be. There is so much going on. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The 2019 Le Dôme has an expressive bouquet that really gets a handle on the Cabernet Franc: blackberry, loamy soil, delicate pressed flowers and a touch of cedar coming through. [...] The palate is medium-bodied with freshness to the fore and touches of tobacco and graphite infuse the black fruit. Tannic towards the finish with a vivid spicy/cracked black pepper aftertaste that lingers in the mouth. Superb. »

    Become a first grand cru classé in 2012, just reward for 20 years of effort by Mr. Neipperg (Canon-La Gaffelière, Clos de l'Oratoire) on this small vineyard of 4.5 ha adjoining Troplong-Mondot. A very large Saint-Émilion, fleshy, intense and penetrating, but with a confidential production.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 96/100 « Bouche veloutée et voluptueuse avec une réelle plénitude. La fraîcheur finale donne de l'équilibre au vin. Un millésime qui va bien à La Mondotte. »
    Revue du Vin de France : 97-98/100 « Dans un bouquet épatant de finesse, ce 2019 embaume le fruit rouge et la gelée de myrtille. La bouche aux tanins satinés offre la profondeur et l’équilibre idéaux pour la garde. On pourra déjà succomber à son charme d’ici quatre à cinq ans. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Quarin : 93/100 « Nez moyennement aromatique, au fruité mûr. Touche d’épices. Moelleux à l’attaque, suave en milieu de bouche et plutôt velouté dans son développement, le vin s’achève agréable, savoureux, sur une bonne longueur tramée. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « Liquified rocks, gravel, blackberry jam, smoke, licorice and dried flowers are some of the many aromas and flavors that infuse La Mondotte with tremendous character. Brooding and potent, the 2019 possesses dazzling richness married to structure. It is a wine of tremendous breeding. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with fine and very lithe tannins that imbue this La Mondotte with a creamy texture. This is another Saint-Émilion without a hair out of place, very sensual and for want of a better word, almost nubile. The 70% new oak is an assiduous decision and allows the terroir to come through on the finish. Excellent. »

    The wines of Figeac display unparalleled naturalness, freshness and distinction. Without losing any of its finesse and balance, Figeac is currently working hard to reach the highest level of Angelus and Pavia in the future classification (2022?).

    Its 2017 has been rated 20/20 by the Revue du Vin de France "The immense success of the en primeur interview is confirmed without a shadow of a doubt. The duel with Cheval-Blanc [also 20/20] continues...".

    Bettane & Desseauve : 99/100 « Un corps satiné, fuselé et une profondeur parmi les plus accomplies du millésime. La finale saline est grandissime. C'est pur, long, séveux, cristalin, d'une fraîcheur intense et d'une longueur ultra racée. »
    Revue du Vin de France : 98-99/100 « Excellent millésime pour ce terroir de graves profondes et d’argiles bleues influencé par le climat, sous influence de la Dordogne, à la limite de Pomerol. L’équilibre parfait du nez sur le fruit précis, frais du merlot est d’une grande finesse, ponctué des épices du cabernet-sauvignon sur une finale où les cabernets francs livrent leur fraîcheur. Toute l’harmonie de la trilogie de raisins saint-émilionnaise concourt à l’excellence de la construction aux tanins graphites, signature de Figeac. » 
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Galloni (Vinous) : 97-99/100 « A stunning vivid wine, the 2019 Figeac may very well turn out to be one of the wines of the vintage, when all is said and done. Cabernet Franc is 36%, a bit higher than the norm, which has been closer to 30%. The 100% new oak is barely perceptible. Rich and dramatic in the glass, the 2019 soars with magnificent intensity. Graphite, cured meats, smoke, licorice, menthol and spice develop with aeration, but the 2019 is dense and very primary today. It is a truly grand Grand Vin in the making. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 97-99/100 « It is quintessential Figeac on the nose, that is to say that the enticing mélange of Merlot and Cabernet together creates more than a sum of their parts. It is exquisitely defined. The palate is medium-bodied. First impressions are of a Figeac that leans more to the Cabernet/Left Bank side of its personality, quite structured with black fruit dominating, saline and marine-influenced. A deeply impressive, intellectual Figeac this years, amongst the canon of greats that stretch back to the 1940s. »

    In 1994, Michel Tardieu began selecting and maturing wines from very old vines and from the best terroirs, following the precepts of his friend Dominique Laurent. While Laurent is known for the concentration of his Burgundy wines, Tardieu has, due to the innate power of Rhone Valley wines, sought to favor elegance and aromatic complexity in his selections. In addition, the luxurious maturation in high quality barrels is a perfect match for the wines of this region.

    Promoted two stars in the 2020 guide Revue du Vin de France.

    100% marsanne (over 50 years old), dry white wine, aromatic (apricot, peach, frangipane...) and fat, with a judicious touch of bitterness on the finish.
