    Roundness, suppleness and depth of flesh are the hallmarks of the consensual red wines produced in Larrivet Haut-Brion, advised by Mr. Rolland until 2014 and then by Mr. Derenoncourt. No link between Larrivet (in Léognan) and Haut-Brion (in Pessac).

    Bettane & Desseauve : 
    Revue du Vin de France : 90-91/100 « Très aromatique, avec un caractère floral original, aux accents presque rhodaniens, porté par un fruit souple, particulièrement aimable. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Quarin : 92/100 « Nuances complexes de cuir mouillé, vanille et mûre. Finement velouté dès l’attaque, avec de la présence en milieu de bouche, une note truffée et fruitée, le vin évolue juteux sur un toucher de bouche raffiné, vers  une  finale  sèveuse  et  sans  cesse  aromatique.  C’est  délicieux.  »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « Deep and persistent, with fabulous balance, the 2019 has so much to recommend it. One of the signatures of Larrivet Haut-Brion is a relatively high percentage of Cabernet Franc, and the Franc character really comes through. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate is finely proportioned with saturated tannins, well judged acidity, fleshy black plum and boysenberry fruit with a pinch of sea salt towards the finish. What a lovely, seductive Larrivet has created in 2019. »

    The second wine of Haut-Bailly, renamed in 2018 (ex La Parde de Haut-Bailly). In the same style as its big brother, all in restraint and finesse, and more and more charming by an increased proportion of Merlot since 2010.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 93-94/100
    Revue du Vin de France :
    Dupont (Le Point) :
    Quarin : 91/100 « Ma meilleure note donnée à ce cru en Primeur. [...] Minutieux dans sa texture dès son entrée en bouche, avec un bel éclat dans le goût et un corps caressant, le vin s’étire en finale, très savoureux, très bien construit, sur une bonne longueur à la tannicité impeccable. Il est incrachable. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Haut-Bailly II is a very serious second wine. Big, potent tannis give the 2019 much of its somber, brooding personality. Black cherry, graphite, licorice, cloves and new leather infuse the 2019 with tremendous complexity. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2019 for at least a few years. »

    Since 1985, Pape Clément has magnificently combined the bouquet and natural finesse of the Graves with the power of its terroir (comparable to that of the greatest Pauillac wines). It is undoubtedly one of the super seconds on the left bank.

    Martin (Vinous) : 96-98/100 « The palate is full-bodied and quite muscular, exerting a firm grip and displaying plenty of tobacco-tinged black fruit that dovetails into a more saline, marine influenced finish. This is a very serious Pape-Clément that will require longer ageing than its peers, but will surely be rewarding for those with patience. »

    Although very famous in the nineteenth century (vineyards adjoin those of Ch. Cantemerle), Belle-Vue no longer existed since 1936. Restored in 1996, Belle-Vue is a rising star of southern Medoc. Happy marriage between a high proportion (20%), Petit Verdot, for an explosive fruity, and careful breeding. Mrs. Mulliez implementation continues with the work of her late husband (too young) in 2010.

This "gap" was filled in 2011 with the acquisition of a beautiful historical cru bourgeois de Moulis, Mauvesin, immediately renamed Mauvesin-Barton to show the Barton family's involvement in this new challenge.

    The arrival of Mr. Derenoncourt as a consultant in 2002 relaunched Prieuré-Lichine, giving it first of all a better aromatic dimension thanks to a more mature grape. The limitation of yields since 2009 has resulted in additional density and volume, which he lacked to compete with his peers.

    Revue du Vin de France : 92-94/100 « C’est encore une belle réussite pour la propriété avec un vin de très belle finesse, porté par des tanins soyeux et une finale très éclatante. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Quarin : 88/100 « Joli nez intense, au fruité mûr, suave et légèrement toasté. La bouche est bâtie sur la tendreté. Elle évolue fruitée, agréable, savoureuse »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The 2019 Prieuré-Lichine soars from the glass, showing tremendous aromatic depth and tons of pure drive. Silky and plush on the palate, the 2019 has so much going on. Super-ripe red cherry, red plum, blood orange, mint, wild flowers and sweet spice give this racy Margaux tons of class. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate is sweet and candied on the entry, a pinch of sea salt sprinkled over the black fruit that grips the palate. I wonder if this underwent a bit more extraction this year? Grippy and solid on the finish, this is a broad-shouldered Margaux that will need 4-5 years in the cellar. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 16-16.5/20 « Raisins bien mûrs, onctueux, finale vive et prolongée par l'acidité. »

    Since 2006, Cantenac-Brown has returned to the forefront of the Margaux's scene with wines that are more fleshy, full-bodied and deep than most of its neighbours. A direct competitor of Giscours.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 92/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 94-95/100 « Le cru impressionne par son fruité explosif et sa très belle ampleur en bouche. L’archétype d’un margaux classique, charmeur et équilibré. »
    Quarin : 92/100 « Ample à l’attaque, juteux en milieu de bouche, plutôt plein et gourmand, le vin évolue puissant, enveloppé et long, sur une finale un tantinet austère. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Cantenac Brown is dark, rich and super-expressive. Even with all of that intensity, Cantenac Brown retains a good bit of nuance and detail. I very much like the balance here, as well as what seems like a move towards more finesse. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The palate is very cohesive with sappy red fruit, beautifully judged acidity and a harmonious, fulfilling dark chocolate-tinged finish that lingers wonderfully. What an exquisite, well-crafted Margaux with oodles and oodles of charm. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 17/20 « Belle matière dense, des arômes un peu poivrés, finale tendue. »

    In organic conversion from 2013, Durfort-Vivens was one of the very first classified growths in the Médoc to claim and display organic certification from 2016. M. Bettane is one of its most fervent defenders: "the quality/price ratio remains absolutely unique at this level of quality of terroir and work.

    See the presentation film of the Ch. DURFORT-VIVENS

    Bettane & Desseauve : 95-96/100 « Noble arôme de rose et violette, excellent corps, texture naturelle, long et complexe, au sommet de son appellation et toujours d'un excellent rapport qualité prix. »
    Revue du Vin de France :
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Durfort-Vivens is a polished, sophisticated wine. Inky dark fruit, grilled herbs, lavender, pine and spice notes and a range of strong savory Cabernet inflections are some of the signatures. Overall, the 2019 is a wine built more on energy and persistence rather than on overt textural depth, as was the case in the 2018. Today, the 2019 feels a bit light. It will be interesting to see if it fills out more during élevage. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 17/20 « Violette, dense, sérieux, tanins fins, très cabernet. »

    By the quality of the selections, and the creation of a 3rd wine from 2009, Pavillon Rouge would have easily been considered as the Great Wine of Château Margaux only 20 years ago.

    Dupont (Le Point) : 15.5/20 « Un peu "brassé" par un soutirage récent. Bouche élégante, tendue, petits tanins vifs, beaucoup de fruit. »
    Quarin : 95/100 « Grand nez complexe, extrêmement fruité. Un des plus éclatants vus dans cette campagne Primeur 2019. [...] Comme d'habitude, la bouche est tout en grâce tactile, avec une sève étonnante et un gras fin qui permet à la stimulation de ce vin de rebondir en finale, long, délicat et incrachable. Une merveille ! »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « A gorgeous wine, the 2019 Pavillon Rouge represents 27% of the crop. All of the radiance of the year is on display. Super-ripe red cherry, red plum, spice, cedar and new leather are all kicked up a few notches, with silky tannins that wrap it all together. Even with all of its obvious richness, the 2019 possesses notable energy as well as freshness. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Pavillon Rouge is definitely one sample that repays aeration, initially very tight and unresponsive. [...] The palate is very well balanced with very fine tannins. This is clearly more "open for business" and what I really admire is that tang of salinity towards the finish, almost as if compensating for the bashful aromatics. Very fine, though it will require four or five years in bottle. »

    Second wine of Lagrange, of an incredible regularity in its quality as in its prices. This classic is an ideal "core of the cellar"!

    Bettane & Desseauve : 
    Revue du Vin de France : 
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Martin (Vinous) : 88-90/100 « The 2019 Les Fiefs de Lagrange is a tremendously popular second label and this latest release shows why. Plenty of crunchy blackberry and raspberry fruit adorns the nose. Unfussy, but it does the job. The palate is very well balanced with pliant tannins, crisp blackberry laced with cedar and cloves with a touch of black pepper on the finish. »

    Second wine of Gruaud-Larose. In a rather powerful and tight register, Sarget is a serious and convincing Saint-Julien, with substance, at its best after 5 to 7 years of ageing.

    Named Château Lalande-Borie until 2017, Le Petit Ducru is made from plots of great classified growths. A fine and distinguished Saint-Julien, in the spirit of Ducru-Beaucaillou.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 
    Revue du Vin de France : 
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Galloni (Vinous) : 88-90/100 « It is a Merlot-based blend made mostly as a third selection of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Plump, juicy and inviting, the 2019 offers tons of appeal. Ripe dark cherry, plum, spice, cedar and tobacco meld into the supple finish. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate is suave and velvety in texture. A very polished wine, moderate in terms of depth with a marine-like piquancy towards the classically-trained, tobacco-infused finish. Very fine. »

    The best cru bourgeois of Saint-Julien (it could easily have been classified in 1855), kept by the Saint-Pierre team, even owner, and in very good shape in the last vintages. The sure thing par excellence.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 
    Revue du Vin de France : 93-94/100 « Le cru est raffiné, construit autour d’un fruité juteux, avec une matière charnue et une petite salinité agréable en finale. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 16/20 « Réglisse, tanins soyeux, riche, élégant, serré en finale. »
    Quarin : 92/100 « Caressant dès l’attaque et franchement soyeux après, avec beaucoup de goût en milieu de bouche, le vin évolue dense et profond en finale, sur des tannins précis et fins. Très belle tenue. Bravo ! Superbe Outsider à Saint Julien. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Gloria is fabulous. A wine of pure and total seduction, Gloria is so wonderfully inviting. Pliant and racy on the palate, with striking red berry character, Gloria is incredibly alluring. [...] It is one of the best values in Bordeaux. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « This is a nimble Saint-Julien, athletic in build with a sapid finish that urges you back for another sip. Excellent. »
