Under the name « gems », we refer to unsung producers who make admirable wines due to their excellent vineyards and their own talent.

These wines are always produced in very small amounts, in vineyards maintained as gardens by gifted and meticulous wine-growers. Even if they do not make the headlines of magazines, they highly deserve to be discovered and tasted for their exemplary quality.

    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.

    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. »

In 2019, Aile d'Argent is distinguished by its energy, even with a touch of malolactic fermentation, and a bit more restraint than in the past, all huge positives. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « The palate is well balanced with a brisk, sharp opening, moderate weight, good tension with a touch of bitter lemon neatly counterbalancing the richness, whilst a potent spicy stem ginger note rounds things off nicely. »

After 5 years of restructuring, Mr. Thienpont is finally proud of his wine and offers it for the first time in 2016.

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.

    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. »

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. »

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.

    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.

    In addition to his classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Mr. Tardieu produces an original cuvée, the Cuvée Spéciale, 100% century-old Grenache, which is incredibly rich and voluptuous. A superlative wine aged in barrels in barrels of at least one wine (no new barrels to best express the sweetness of old grenaches).

    Varieties (age of vines) : 99% grenache (more than 100 years), 1% others
    Alcohol content : 14,5°

    Amazing story as that of Dominio de Pingus. Created in 1995 by Peter Sisseck, a Danish (!), this estate a few kilometres from Vega Sicilia has become a cult in less than 15 years.

    Flor de Pingus is the second wine, coming from the Dominio de Pingus and neighbouring parcels acquired by fermage, 100% tempranillo aged 50 years, biodynamic since 2005. 4000 cases produced per year.
