In the category « Long keeping », we gather all the wines of the vintage 2017 that will have, according to us, an ageing potential of at least 20 years (even if they will reach their peak before). This category is thus intended for the (very) patient ones with a great cellar, or for those who will have something to celebrate in 20 years (or more).

The ability to age well is the preserve of the finest wines, but more affordable wines can also have a great ageing potential due to their excellent vineyards, the grapes varieties used or to the winemaker’s will. The ageing varies as well depending on the temperature of the cellar (the colder the cellar is, the slower the wine will age) and the bottle’s size (wines in large containers like magnums will age slower and longer than wines in bottles).

    Doisy-Daëne is never the sweetest wine in its sector, but it always has an expression and an aromatic refinement without equal. A pure Barsac, brilliantly orchestrated by Denis Dubourdieu until 2016.

    The 2014 vintage is rated 17-18/20 by the Revue du Vin de France "with pure fruit, generous liquor, it is balanced by the finesse, the minerality of the soil", 18/20 for the 2015 vintage "wine all in suavity and roundness" and 2016 "sparkling and crystalline fruit, pure character that signs the terroir of Barsac".

    Bettane & Desseauve : 96/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 94-96/100 « Doux et onctueux en bouche, il possède une liqueur pure qui le porte avec ampleur. Et malgré une richesse évidente, il reste assez longiligne grâce à cette vitalité du sol de Barsac, avec une agréable finale sur d’élégants amers. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 18/20 « Agrumes, fruits jaunes, safran; bouche juteuse, complexe, finale poivre blanc.»
    Quarin : 92/100 « Nez intense, fin, fruité, très pur, complexe et légèrement citronné. Délicat à l'attaque et de suite suave, presque solaire, le vin évolue particulièrement savoureux et fondant, avec un très bel éclat général. C'est incrachable, avec de la classe dans le toucher et les arômes. Grande longueur. Du beau travail. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « Rich and yet also wonderfully light on its feet, the 2019 is hauntingly beautiful and impeccable in its balance. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The palate is beautifully balanced with a fine line of acidity, taut and fresh with a weightlessness on the finish that contradicts its intensity.  »

    Administered by the Rothschilds (Mouton) since 1996, Coutet has joined the leading pack of the biggest Sauternes after Yquem. Like Climens, it is a true Barsac, pure and remarkably subtle, but with a more marked liquor. Since 2005, Coutet has been in great shape! Rated 19/20 by the Revue du Vin de France in 2017 and 19.5/20 in 2016.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 93-94/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 95-96/100 « Très joli parfum mêlant une touche de fer et de fruit confit avec un élevage qui lui apporte une note de toffee. Une belle liqueur lui confère une grande douceur, mais avec une agréable vivacité signant la minéralité du terroir de Barsac. »
    Dupont (Le Point) :
    Quarin : 90/100 « Délicat en entrée de bouche, subtil dans ses arômes et son toucher au milieu, fondant, le vin s'achève sur des belles notes de fruits blancs et une persistance finement épicée. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 87-90/100 « The 2019 is very pretty but a bit eccentric, especially in its aromatics »
    Martin (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The 2019 Coutet has a luscious bouquet with scents of dried honey, honeysuckle and orange pith, intense and well defined. The palate is built around Coutet's trademark line of acidity, an underlying zestiness cutting through the unctuous honeyed fruit with a welcome orange rind and marmalade note on the persistent finish. Excellent. »

    In the commune of Preignac, Suduiraut offers a wine that reflects its geographical position: halfway between Sauternes and Barsac. The latest vintages are dazzling in terms of contained power and aromatic distinction. Double coup for the 2016 and 2017 vintages in the Revue du Vin de France, respectively rated 19/20 "masterful" and 19.5/20 "remarkable".

    Bettane & Desseauve : 93-94/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 95-96/100 « Si le premier nez embaume l’abricot confit, il est rapidement suivi d’une touche variétale, voire végétale, sans que cela nuise à son équilibre. Une liqueur douce, très agréable, vient conforter un fruit d’une grande pureté. Un sauternes très soyeux qui, comme toujours, se construira en cours d’élevage »
    Dupont (Le Point) :
    Quarin : 94/100 « Ample à l’attaque, fondant au développement, tout à la fois aromatique et gras, mais sans lourdeur, avec de la noblesse dans le toucher, le vin s’étire longtemps en finale, complexe, long, tandis que des nuances rappellent la mandarine et l’orange. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « What I like most about Suduiraut is how it delivers superb flavor intensity and yet remains light on its feet. The 2019 is a gorgeous and totally compelling wine. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « A powerful and intense Sauternes in the making with layers of honey, ginger and quince. You could almost describe the texture as "gloopy"! This is a superb Suduiraut with long-term potential. »

    Selection of the best parcels of Château de Carles (10 ha out of the 20 ha of the estate), certainly the finest and most ambitious wine of Fronsac, making since 2000 equal game with the best classified growths of the slopes of Saint-Émilion.

    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate is well balanced with fine grain tannins, well judged acidity. A harmonious Fronsac with a smooth texture that glides across the finish. This is a very well crafted Fronsac, though it needs 5-6 years in bottle. »

    Since 1985, Pape Clément has magnificently combined the bouquet and natural finesse of the Graves with the power of its terroir (comparable to that of the greatest Pauillac wines). It is undoubtedly one of the super seconds on the left bank.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 96/100 « Un pape sérieux, long et dense, de grande allure. »
    Revue du Vin de France : 
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Quarin : 94/100 « Nez très aromatique et complexe, au fruité mûr. [...] Extrêmement parfumé, le vin évolue savoureux, sur un ensemble plutôt tendre, vers une bonne longueur sans angle. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « The 2019 Pape Clément is a fabulous wine. Rich, exotic and sweet in its grandeur, the 2019 captivates all the senses with its dazzling beauty. The 2019 is a wine of statuesque proportions that impresses with its intensity. [...] What a wine. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 96-98/100 « The palate is full-bodied and quite muscular, exerting a firm grip and displaying plenty of tobacco-tinged black fruit that dovetails into a more saline, marine influenced finish. This is a very serious Pape-Clément that will require longer ageing than its peers, but will surely be rewarding for those with patience. »

    Second red wine of Haut-Brion, named as such since 2008 (previously Ch.Bahans Haut-Brion). To underline the stylistic kinship with Haut-Brion, Le Clarence is put in the same very special bottle.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 94-95/100

    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Quarin : 91/100 « Nez très aromatique, fruité, subtil, avec une touche rarement vue de cuir mouillé. Bouche juteuse, savoureuse, un peu plus détendue que parfois, qui prend de l'allure entre le milieu et la finale. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is fabulous. Backward and yet full of intrigue, the 2019 will be easy to enjoy young, but it also clearly has the stuffing to age for years. Readers will find a wine endowed with tremendous character. Wow! »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion offers more red fruit on the nose than the La Chapelle de La Mission, perhaps more vibrant and expressive at this early stage. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshy and forward. »

    Bought in 2008 by Mr. Cuvelier (Clos Fourtet), a new era began in Poujeaux under the leadership of Mr. Thienpont and Mr. Derenoncourt. By its elegance and velvety texture, Poujeaux can be confused when tasting with Saint-Julien.

    Bettane & Desseauve :
    Revue du Vin de France : 92-93/100 « Le vin affiche du charme, en demi-puissance, avec une texture crémeuse, une jolie finesse et des tanins soyeux. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 15.5/20 « Tanins fins, belle matière, riche équilibré par une acidité agréable. »
    Quarin : 91/100 « Nez très aromatique, fin, au fruité pur, mûr et noble. Très jolie bouche charnue dès l’attaque, se développant savoureuse, pleine, sur un corps velouté, avec beaucoup de saveurs dans la persistance. Jamais je ne l’ai trouvé autant médocain. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « The 2019 Poujeaux is gorgeous. Pliant and radiant in the glass, with terrific palate presence, the 2019 captures all the richness of the year and yet also stays light on its feet. Sage, rose petal, spice and sweet macerated cherry all grace this ethereal, vivid and very pretty Poujeaux. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « This Poujeaux has good backbone, almost Pauillac-like in style with a dense and persistent finish that augers for a long-term wine that will repay those with the nous to cellar it a few years. Superb. »

    We no longer present Sociando-Mallet, which should be in a good place in the cellar of any wine lover, as the quality and above all the regularity of its last thirty vintages are so impressive. Without wishing to underestimate the hard work of the late Mr Gautreau since 1969, it must be said that the terroir, against the Gironde on a gravelly ridge comparable to that of Montrose, is indeed that of a Grand Cru Classé. Unavoidable 2016, the greatest wine of Sociando-Mallet since 1996.

    Bettane & Desseauve :
    Revue du Vin de France : 91-93/100 « Le vin offre un bon volume de bouche, avec de la rondeur, un côté charnu et un fruité mûr. Un Sociando suave qui termine sur des tanins un peu durs. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 17/20 « Pivoine, bouche ample, ronde, dense, tanins fins, délicats, long, soyeux. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit, crushed stone and a discrete pinch of white pepper, focused and full of energy on the finish. What a superb Sociando-Mallet. »

    In organic conversion from 2013, Durfort-Vivens was one of the very first classified growths in the Médoc to claim and display organic certification from 2016. M. Bettane is one of its most fervent defenders: "the quality/price ratio remains absolutely unique at this level of quality of terroir and work.

    See the presentation film of the Ch. DURFORT-VIVENS

    Bettane & Desseauve : 95-96/100 « Noble arôme de rose et violette, excellent corps, texture naturelle, long et complexe, au sommet de son appellation et toujours d'un excellent rapport qualité prix. »
    Revue du Vin de France :
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Durfort-Vivens is a polished, sophisticated wine. Inky dark fruit, grilled herbs, lavender, pine and spice notes and a range of strong savory Cabernet inflections are some of the signatures. Overall, the 2019 is a wine built more on energy and persistence rather than on overt textural depth, as was the case in the 2018. Today, the 2019 feels a bit light. It will be interesting to see if it fills out more during élevage. »

    By the quality of the selections, and the creation of a 3rd wine from 2009, Pavillon Rouge would have easily been considered as the Great Wine of Château Margaux only 20 years ago.

    Dupont (Le Point) : 15.5/20 « Un peu "brassé" par un soutirage récent. Bouche élégante, tendue, petits tanins vifs, beaucoup de fruit. »
    Quarin : 95/100 « Grand nez complexe, extrêmement fruité. Un des plus éclatants vus dans cette campagne Primeur 2019. [...] Comme d'habitude, la bouche est tout en grâce tactile, avec une sève étonnante et un gras fin qui permet à la stimulation de ce vin de rebondir en finale, long, délicat et incrachable. Une merveille ! »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « A gorgeous wine, the 2019 Pavillon Rouge represents 27% of the crop. All of the radiance of the year is on display. Super-ripe red cherry, red plum, spice, cedar and new leather are all kicked up a few notches, with silky tannins that wrap it all together. Even with all of its obvious richness, the 2019 possesses notable energy as well as freshness. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Pavillon Rouge is definitely one sample that repays aeration, initially very tight and unresponsive. [...] The palate is very well balanced with very fine tannins. This is clearly more "open for business" and what I really admire is that tang of salinity towards the finish, almost as if compensating for the bashful aromatics. Very fine, though it will require four or five years in bottle. »

    Saint-Pierre's obvious progress since 2003 now makes it a great rival of its peers in Saint-Julien, even ahead of them in depth of flesh.

    Brillant 2014, a favourite in the green guide of the Revue du Vin de France, rated 17.5/20 by M. Bettane "harmoniously constructed palate, superb grain of tannin, delicate but deep length. A great success".

    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Saint-Pierre (Saint-Julien) is fabulous. Graphite, gravel, lavender and inky dark fruit are some of the many notes that emerge from this potent, tightly wound Saint-Julien that is going to require at least a measure of patience. A virile, tannic Saint-Julien loaded with potential, but also a wine that demands cellaring. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The palate is fresh and detailed with grippy tannins. Very good structure here, a sturdy yet paradoxically elegant wine with a lip-smacking salinity on the long finish. Superb, absolutely superb. »

    Of all the second classified growths in St-Julien, Gruaud-Larose is the most vigorous and massive in young wine. But, the magic of the terroir, it acquires softness and finesse if it is given time to age. Its quality/price ratio puts it ahead of the other second classified growths of St-Julien!

    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.
