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.

    Small cru bourgeois ( supérieur ) acquired in 1997 by Baron Velge who considers it as his jewel (7 ha). Very few of the northern Medoc's crus have yet started to convert to organic farming due to the higher humidity than anywhere else in the Gironde. However, after 7 years of efforts (and the loss of 2/3 of the 2018 harvest), and under the leadership of its technical director José Bueno (23 years at Mouton-Rothschild), de Côme has become the first Saint-Estèphe cru to be certified organic, offering a supple, fine and silky version of the appellation.

    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. »

    Garcin property (Barde-Haut, Poesia), 5.9 ha ideally located on the Pomerol plateau (between Clinet and L'Église-Clinet). Clos L'Église has been returning since 2011 to a more harmonious, melting and tasty version, similar to the style of La Conseillante.

    Revue du Vin de France : 
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Quarin : 94/100 « Nez moyennement aromatique, au fruité crémeux et légèrement truffé. Moelleux à l'attaque, juteux en milieu de bouche, très savoureux, le vin caresse le palais avant de prendre de la profondeur dans sa saveur finale. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Clos de l’Église is a wine of power, but also reserve. It is the most reticent of Hélène Garcin's 2019. Beams of tannin give the 2019 a feeling of real gravitas and brooding intensity. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 94-96 « The 2019 Clos l'Eglise offers ripe black cherries, wild strawberry, hints of liquorice and marmalade on the nose, well-defined, quite extravagant but not excessive. [...] Good depth here, that liquorice note reappearing towards the finish that exerts a gentle grip, then delivers a long spicy aftertaste. Great potential. »

    Like Pétrus, Le Pin is 100% Merlot. But if Pétrus has adopted a more classic style in recent years, Le Pin remains a hedonistic wine, often exuberant, sometimes even exotic. And unlike Pétrus, Le Pin is much rarer (500 cases per year).

    Bettane & Desseauve : 96/100 « Les tannins fins et enrobés par une chair formée se trament dans un corps à la fois concentré, charmeur et maîtrisé. Le fruité légèrement poivré se montre éloquent. La finale fraîche offre un raffinement satiné nuancé de notes de violette. »

    Small vineyard of 8.8 ha north-east of Saint-Émilion, property Garcin (Clos l'Église, Barde-Haut) since 2013. Their aim is not to produce yet another "competition animal" but a generously fruity, delicious, creamy, easily and quickly accessible Saint-Émilion.

    Bettane & Desseauve :
    Revue du Vin de France :
    Dupont (Le Point) :
    Quarin : 89/100 « Caressant à l'attaque, avec un corps élancé, le vin prend de la saveur en seconde partie de bouche. Il s'achève agréable sur une bonne longueur sèveuse. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The 2019 Poesia is a real beauty. Pliant and seductive in the glass, with striking depth, Poesia is absolutely gorgeous in 2019. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and licorice all meld together in sumptuous Saint-Émilion that will drink well right out of the gate. Tasted next to Barde-Haut, Poesia offers a touch more freshness. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Poesia might well be in possession of the best aromatics that I have encountered on this Saint-Émilion. Vibrant and intense blackberry and boysenberry fruit burst from the glass whilst maintaining superb delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Extremely focused with impressive mineral tension on the effortless finish. Highly recommended. »

    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.

    Dupont (Le Point) :
    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. »

    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. »

    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. »

    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. »
