    The great white wine of Ch. Valandraud, with a sparkling sap and balance. With only 4000 bottles produced, it is a nugget that will do wonders on the table in 5 years (to take advantage of its youthful brilliance) or in 15 years.

    Quarin : 94/100 « Ma meilleure note donnée à ce cru en Primeur. [...] Délicat dès l’entrée en bouche et immédiatement fondant, avec un très beau toucher et du corps , le vin s’étire épicé, avant de rebondir en finale, très savoureux, beau et incrachable. Bravo ! »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Valandraud Blanc is a bright, crisp and finely cut wine of energy and tension. Time in the glass brings out the wine's textural depth and creaminess. Green apple, mint, white flowers and sage add freshness and brilliance. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine bead of acidity. This is where there is a major, tangible difference with the Virginie as there is more depth and complexity here, offering a lovely, caressing, creamy finish with a hint of ginger on the aftertaste. Excellent. »

    Martin (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 de la Dauphine has a superb nose with pure blackberry, boysenberry and crushed stone aromas, hints of iris and violet emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, grainy tannins, fine depth and an unerring sense of symmetry on the finish. »

    In the same family since 1609 (!), Moulin Haut-Laroque offers a disciplined Fronsac: ripe and rich without excess, softened by the sweetness of its Merlot (65%) and by a judicious breeding. A sure value of the appellation.

    Remarkable success in 2015 and 2016.

    Galloni (Vinous) : 89-91/100 « The 2019 Moulin Haut-Laroque is a dark, sumptuous beauty. Blackberry jam, chocolate, licorice, spice and new leather all build effortlessly in the glass. The 2019 is unctuous and dense, not to mention incredibly appealing. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 89-91/100 « The palate is well balanced with supple tannins, not amazingly complex but fresh with a lovely liquorice-tinged finish that lingers nicely. Promising. »

    Begun in 2003, the Clos Louie adventure is a textbook case: doll vineyard (2.3 ha) on a beautiful clayey-limestone soil of Castillon, careful cultivation in biodynamics, double manual sorting during the harvest, vinification with little intervention, gentle maturing in half-masses of 500 litres. Louison et Léopoldine is the other wine from Clos Louie, made from the youngest vines (50 years old all the same), giving pride of place to Cabernet-Franc for a brilliant fruity taste and the promise of a quick-lasting gourmet pleasure.

    With 12 hectares cultivated in biodynamic farming, certified since the 2007 vintage, Clos Puy-Arnaud is one of the great Côtes de Castillon wines that have nothing to envy to neighbouring Saint-Émilion.

    "Grand Vin", the uncompromising cuvée that has made the estate's reputation, authentic, straight and deep, classic, spicy and cut out for keeping.

    Bettane & Desseauve :
    Revue du Vin de France :
    Dupont (Le Point) :
    Quarin : 90/100 « Bouche charnue, veloutée, se développant suave, dense et savoureuse en milieu de bouche et jusqu’en finale. Persistance sur un grain de tannin fin. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Clos Puy Arnaud is dazzling. Rich, inky and wonderfully deep, the 2019 has so much to offer. I can't remember a recent Clos Puy Arnaud with this much density and sheer textural intensity. Inky dark fruit, crème de cassis, violets and licorice all build as this sumptuous, exotically rich Castillon Côtes De Bordeaux shows off its personality. What a wine! »
    Martin (Vinous) : 85-87/100 « The 2019 Puy Arnaud has a lovely ripe nose with mulberry and raspberry preserve, generous and well defined. [...] Whilst the aromatics are promising, the palate lacks structure and grip and drifts towards the finish. »

    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.

[...] 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. »

    Very rare are the crus of the north of the Médoc to have launched out for the moment in the organic conversion because of a stronger hygrometry than everywhere else in the Gironde. De Côme, a Petit Cru Bourgeois (superior) of 7 ha, has become after 7 years of efforts (and the loss of 2/3 of the 2018 harvest) the first growth of Saint-Estèphe certified organic, in a supple, fine and silky version of the appellation.

    Dupont (Le Point) : 15/20 « Nez épicé, poivré, caramel brun, bouche juteuse, serrée, tanins croquants, bonne longueur, pur. »
    Quarin : 88/100 « Bouche juteuse et surtout très savoureuse qui fond au palais, gracieuse et très plaisante, sans être très longue. Du plaisir de suite. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 86-88/100 « The 2019 de Côme has quite a tight blackberry and soy tinged nose that doesn't quite match my expectations. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, quite saline in the mouth but it needs more depth and complexity on the finish. »

    Previously settled on firm tannins that made them stark in their youth, Cos Labory's wines have since 2015 changed in style, becoming more pleasant and gaining in depth and refinement (its vineyard is adjacent to those of Lafite-Rothschild and Cos d'Estournel).

    Revue du Vin de France : 94-95/100 « Le nez est fin et frais, sur des notes de fruits rouges. En bouche, on retrouve cette dynamique, avec un côté acidulé très agréable et gourmand. Bel éclat en finale. »
    Quarin
     : 90/100 « Nez intense, au fruité mûr, vanillé et agréablement marqué par le fruit noir. Caressant à l’attaque, particulièrement fruité en milieu de bouche, avec un corps plutôt tendre, le vin évolue savoureux en gagnant de la densité. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Cos Labory is a brooding, powerful wine. Today, the elements aren't fully put together, but the 2019 certainly has a lot going on. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Cos Labory has one of the best noses that I have encountered on this estate's Grand Vin [...] The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, much more purity than the Cos Laborys of yore, cohesive and quite persistent on the finish.

    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.

    Le Carré, the second single-vineyard cuvée of Mr Maltus, comes from a 1.05 hectare (square) plot, bought in 2001 from Ch. Canon and located next to Clos Fourtet. The predominantly clay soil on a layer of limestone allows the Merlot (85%) to express all its richness and exuberance.

    Galloni (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The 2019 Le Carré is a powerful, virile wine. Swaths of tannin enshroud a core of dark ruit, while smoke, tobacco, game, iron and black fruits give the 2019 a distinctly wild, feral quality that is impossible to miss. The 2019 finishes with real drive and tons of pure intensity. The Cabernet Franc is decidedly vivid. The 2019 will likely need a few years in bottle to be at its best, but it sure is impressive today. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate kicks up a gear with fine tannins and attractive cracked black pepper notes literally sprinkled over the black fruit and a long, satisfying aftertaste. Good potential here. »

Remarkable vintages, little known in France but much sought after by English and American wine lovers.

    Produced from 2003, Les Astéries comes from a plot of 1.2 ha on the plateau, from century-old vines (planted in 1920) bought from Ch. Fonroque, and takes its name from the astery-limestone that makes up its soil. Even if it is 80% Merlot, Les Astéries is a great fresh and long wine, with a marked acid support, almost sharp, expressing all the minerality of the famous "iron dross" present at less than 40 cm deep.

    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Les Astéries is another fabulous wine in this range from Jonathan Maltus. A rush of blackberry jam, spice, mocha, white chocolate and licorice builds in a Saint-Émilion endowed with tremendous textural resonance and intensity. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The 2019 Les Astéries has a charming bouquet with small dark cherries, crushed violet and inky aromas, all neatly integrated with the new oak - lush but controlled and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, cohesive and poised with fine tension and complexity towards the finish. This might well turn out to be Jonathan Malthus' best release this vintage. »

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. »
