    Dupont (Le Point) :
    Quarin : 93/100 « Superbe nez éclatant de fruits noirs et frais, avec un fond crémeux et épicé. Bouche voluptueuse, où le corps ne cesse de fondre, gracieux, suave, velouté, sans une once de tannin dans la persistance. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 La Marzelle is such a gorgeous wine. Rich and unctuous in the glass, the 2019 is a heady, flamboyant wine, but it all works so well here. La Marzelle is not exactly complex, but it sure is delicious. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 La Marzelle is extremely pure on the nose with vivacious dark cherries, cassis, pressed iris flowers and incense, well defined with seamlessly integrated new oak. It is a well-crafted modern-style Saint-Émilion. »

    From 2005, La Dominique, prestigious terroir adjacent to Cheval-Blanc, L'Évangile and La Conseillante, returns in great shape. His velvety and sensual style places him halfway between Saint-Émilion and Pomerol.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 95-96/100 « Attaque veloutée plaisante avec une finale énergique. Le cru a gagné en ressor et en expression pour afficher un vrai caractère, énergique et sans aucune lourdeur. »
    Revue du Vin de France : 94-95/100 « Un fruit puissant et ardent, ainsi qu’une touche de pivoine pour le nez qui a déjà pris les notes de bois. Le bouquet reste sur un fruit noir et la structure serrée devient plus crémeuse au fil de la dégustation. Ce millésime affirme le style et libère le potentiel du vignoble de La Dominique. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Galloni (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The 2019 La Dominique just shimmers with beauty. Bright, floral and vibrant, the 2019 is a total stunner. Freshly cut flowers, mint, cedar and red cherry jam open up in the glass, but it is the wine's purity that impresses most today. This is a fabulous showing. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The palate is well defined with detailed black fruit laced with graphite, but the real difference vis-à-vis previous vintages is the weight on the mid-palate. There is no hole in the middle and the wine stretches out languorously on the finish. Is La Dominique beginning to realize its potential? This sample suggests that is the case. »

    Rocheyron is the result of a friendly and professional partnership between Sylvio Denz (Faugères and Lafaurie-Peyraguey) and Peter Sisseck (Pingus). Since 2010, they have been investing in this small 8-hectare vineyard, located entirely on the asteriated limestone plateau characteristic of Saint-Émilion: tilling the soil, conversion to organic farming (certified in 2020), gentle vinification at low temperatures... Rocheyron is constantly progressing, and each year offers wines with an unequalled tannic softness.

    Bettane & Desseauve :
    Revue du Vin de France :
    Dupont (Le Point) :
    Galloni (Vinous) : 86-88/100 « The 2019 Rocheyron is a soft, pleasant, easy-going wine. Inky dark cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice and spice all develop with a bit of air. It would be nice to see a bit more mid-palate and overall body. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, so much freshness and tension bursting towards the finish that you want to immediately return for another sip. The best Rocheyron thus far. »

    Bought out in 2017 by the reinsurer SCOR, a page is turned in Troplong-Mondot, a formidable terroir in Saint-Emilion. Up to and including 2016, these are the richest in extract and most generous wines of the appellation, made by Christine Valette and her husband, under the aegis of Michel Rolland.

    A radical break in style from the 2017 vintage: armed with the power of its terroir, the Château now aims, under the leadership of Aymeric de Gironde (former director of Cos d'Estournel), to produce more harmonious wines, combining elegant precision with their natural aromatic richness.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 96/100 « Mâche soyeuse subtile en attaque, avec un tannin qui prend de la densité et de la profondeur. La fraîcheur aromatique est intégrée et la finale crayeuse donne de la verticalité au vin. »
    Revue du Vin de France : 95-96/100 « Le profil est massif mais le fruit dynamique. La puissance rassemblée des calcaires sert l’équilibre de ce vin complexe et généreux, à l’extraction plus infusée. Une belle réussite. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Quarin : 95/100 « Immédiatement délicat dès l’entrée en bouche, plus floral que jamais, minutieux dans son toucher et sans cesse parfumé, le vin s’étire en finale, savoureux et délicatement complexe dans son déroulé. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 96-98/100 « The 2019 Troplong Mondot is sensational. Rich, vibrant and explosive, the 2019 pulses with energy. Black cherry, violet plum, licorice, lavender and dark spice build in a statuesque Saint-Émilion endowed with tremendous energy and pure power. Troplong Mondot is not as obvious a wine as it was a few years ago, but its grandeur - and more importantly, the grandeur of this site - are evident. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « Its gentle personality belies the backbone of this Troplong, with touches of white pepper and tobacco toward the cerebral finish. It is a wonderful Saint-Émilion from Aymeric de Gironde and his team, more approachable than the 2018, to be frank, just a wine you are going to want to drink. »

    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) : 16.5-17/20 « Eucalyptus, boisé frais, bouche tendue, tanins fermes, racé, très persistant. » 
    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. »

    Cornas from Syrah and small Syrah aged 60 years minimum. The austerity due to the schistose soil is perfectly balanced here by Michel Tardieu's talent as a breeder. A model for the northern Rhône.

    Varieties (age of vines) : 100% syrah (60 to 100 years)
    Alcohol content : 14°
    Vinification : 1/2 not destemmed grapes
    Ageing : 24 months in new and one old barrels
    Bottling : no fining and no filtration
