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.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 95/100
    Revue du Vin de France :
    Dupont (Le Point) :
    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. »

    Bettane & Desseauve : 93/100
    Revue du Vin de France :
    Dupont (Le Point) :
    Quarin : 94/100 « Caressant en entrée de bouche, gras au milieu, particulièrement fruité et savoureux, le vin conserve ce toucher raffiné jusqu'en finale où il se double de saveurs complexes. C'est vraiment très bon. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Aile d'Argent, Mouton Rothschild's white is laced with hints of pineapple, mint, white flowers, apple and lemon confit. 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. »

    Property of 6 ha in Côtes de Castillon acquired in 2011 by M. Thienpont (Puyguéraud, Pavie-Macquin, Larcis-Ducasse, etc.). After 5 years of restructuring, Mr. Thienpont is finally proud of his wine and offers it for the first time in 2016. Even if Merlot is dominant (92%), Alcée stands out from its neighbours by its emphasis on finesse, minerality and distinction. A wine in length and not in width!

Rose petal, raspberry jam, spice and mint are all laced together in this silky, mid-weight Côtes de Castillon. Gracious and refined, Alcée is shaping up quite nicely. »

    Galloni (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « The 2019 Le Petit Verdot by Belle-Vue is once again one of the sleepers of the vintage. Rich in both fruit and tannin, the Petit Verdot is a wine for readers who enjoy bold, structured reds. Sweet tobacco, iron, dried flowers, red cherry preserves and scorched earth add lovely touches of savoriness. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 86-88/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with slightly coarse tannins on the entry, nice 'n saline towards the finish with just the right amount of piquancy. Finishes better than it begins. »

    Martin (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « There is something just a little Oriental about the aromatics. The palate is well balanced with saturated tannin. The acidity is certainly well judged and there is real body and depth towards the fresh and quite persistent finish. Excellent. »

    Historical bourgeois cru of Saint-Estephe since in the same family since 1678! With a grape variety dominated by Merlot (60%) and the arrival of Hubert de Boüard (Angelus) as a consultant from 2016, Tour des Termes has a velvety and supple texture that gives it its charm.

    Dupont (Le Point) : 16/20 « Boisé discret, réglisse, bouche onctueuse en attaque, bien fruitée, long, fin, relevé en finale.»
    Quarin : 87/100 « Juteux dès l’entrée en bouche, savoureux au milieu, le vin s’étire en finale, sur des tannins enrobés et plutôt aromatiques. C’est bon. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Tour de Termes is succulent, racy and so expressive. Blueberry jam, graphite, chocolate, licorice, spice and lavender infuse the 2019 with captivating depth. Tour des Termes shows off the more flamboyant side of Saint-Estèphe to great effect. All the elements are impeccably balanced here. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 88-90/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins, fleshy for a Saint-Estèphe but just missing some personality and charm towards its earthy finish. »

    An oenologist by training, Ms. Papon-Nouvel owns two tiny properties at the bottom of Saint-Émilion near Canon-La Gaffelière: Petit Gravet Aîné (2.4 ha) and Clos Saint-Julien (1.3 ha), where the vines are mainly old cabernets francs. From the vine to the cellar, she manages all the stages in the production of her wines on her own and, whatever the vintage, her talent as an instinctive winemaker gives wines of natural elegance and exemplary sweetness.

    Quarin : 90/100 « Sa texture est délicate dès l’entrée en bouche. Le vin se développe minutieux, très savoureux, avec de la présence, avant de s’achever long et parfumé. Beaucoup de cabernet franc infère ce comportement tout en délicatesse. Un superbe Outsider en agriculture biologique ! »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « Even with all of its intensity and pure power, the 2019 retains terrific aromatic brilliance. Then again, that is the magic of Cabernet Franc in this 2.4-hectare vineyard. Petit Gravet Aîné shows the ripeness of the year a bit more than its sibling Clos Saint-Julien, but it has an allure all of its own. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 85-87/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins. A bit disjointed compared to its peers with a dry and atypically austere finish that feels green around the edges. Perplexing. »

    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.

    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. »

    Since 1994, Michel Tardieu has been selecting and growing wines from very old vines and from the best terroirs of each appellation. Associated until 2007 with Dominique Laurent, known for the concentration of his Burgundy wines, Michel Tardieu has, because of the innate richness of the Rhone Valley wines, always sought to favour elegance and aromatic complexity in his selections.

    Promoted two stars in the 2021 Revue du Vin de France guide.

    Saint-Péray Vieilles Vignes: 50% marsanne (with 100 years old vines!) and 50% roussanne. On a background of honeyed and toasted notes, intense aromas of white flowers and quince, the freshness is well present and, in the mouth, the vivacity balances the roundness.

    Terroirs : La Côte, La Beylesse
    Varieties (age of vines) : 50% marsanne (50 to 100 years), 50% roussanne (more than 40 years)
