    Since 2009 and the acquisition by Mr. Lorenzetti, we can talk about a new vintage wine classified in Pauillac. Unworthy of his ranking, Pédesclaux had until then disappeared from the Bordeaux scene. The ambition and resources of the new owner are there: complete overhaul of the installations, acquisition of new plots of land ideally located. The first vintages offer the image of a supple and easily accessible Pauillac, at a price that defies all competition in the appellation.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 
    Revue du Vin de France : 94-96/100 « Au fil des ans, le cru gagne en raffinement, et ce 2019 aboutit à l’élaboration d’un vin au grain très fin. Très épuré, brillant dans l’expression du fruit, il tire sa force d’une finale très sapide et juteuse. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 16.5/20 « Joli nez, bouche dense, pimentée, relevée, droit, pur, tendu, persistant. »
    Quarin : 92/100 « Minutieux dès l’entrée en bouche et délicatement charnu, avec une évolution sur un toucher raffiné, le vin évolue savoureux, fruité et épicé dans la  persistance,  sans  perte  de  gras.  Belle  longueur  très  enveloppée.  Le  millésime  de Pédesclaux  le  plus  riche  en  cabernet  sauvignon  (72  %). »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « Pédesclaux is terrific in 2019. [...] The 2019 is a rich, heady wine that will drink well pretty much out of the gate, but it has plenty of underlying structure, too. Impressive. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate is crisp and slightly chalky-textured on the entry. This is a fine-boned Pédesclaux with gentle grip. Maybe a little sterner than its peers, but feels reassuringly persistent. 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. »

    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Le Marquis de Calon Ségur is a stunning wine. Dark cherry, blackberry jam, plum, gravel, menthol, licorice, inky spice and new leather meld together in a Saint-Estèphe that is rich, unctuous and potent to the core. In the glass, the 2019 is virile and expansive, with tremendous depth, persistence and aromatic breadth. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit laced with pencil lead, very harmonious with a precise and persistent finish. This is surely the best second label from Calon Ségur to date. »

    On a magnificent gravelly hillock that has nothing to envy that of its neighbour Montrose, Meyney (Crédit Agricole property) is a serious candidate for the title of best Médoc bourgeois cru in each vintage. Long, complex, refined, distinguished tannins: a great Médoc cut for long ageing. Recommended by Mr. De Boüard (Angelus) from the 2014 vintage.

    Bettane & Desseauve :  93/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 93-95/100 « Le cru possède un beau volume, mais avec une belle extraction de la matière qui demeure élégante. Le fruit est préservé, les tanins bien intégrés. Une belle réussite. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 17/20 « Nez épicé, réglisse, bouche élégante, violette en finale, long, équilibré.»
    Quarin : 91/100 « Délicat  à  l’attaque,  suave  et  juteux  au  milieu,  immédiatement  agréable,  avec  un  corps tendre cependant, le vin s’étire savoureux, sur une bonne longueur sans tannicité marquée. Un bel Outsider à Saint-Estèphe. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Meyney is a powerful, inky and extroverted wine. [...] Although not a shy wine by any means, Meyney has a good bit of energy to play off all that concentration. The style remains a bit pushed, but less overtly so than in the recent past. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Meyney is well defined on the bouquet, leaning a little more towards the red side of the fruit spectrum with raspberry, wild strawberry and floral scents. [...] It has a citric element from start to finish, a taut line of acidity with light spicy notes towards the finish that shares the brininess of stablemate Grand Puy Ducasse. Very fine. »

    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.

    Second wine of Nénin. A beautiful material, with a well mastered breeding: this is an excellent introduction, at a reasonable price, to the world of Pomerol.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 95-96/100 « Les 30% de cabernet franc contribuent à l'intensité séveuse de ce 2019 marqué par une profondeur et un raffinement aboutis. L'aromatique florale se met en place. »
    Revue du Vin de France : 91-93/100 « Long et serré, Nénin propose un 2019 dans la lignée du 2018. [...] Son allonge stricte et son grain d’une grande finesse préludent à une évolution sur le long terme. Comme son prédécesseur, il aura besoin de temps pour se dérider. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 
    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Nénin is plump, juicy and very easy to like. Sweet red cherry, red plum, spice and sweet cedar are all laced together in this very pretty, nuanced Pomerol. Silky tannins add to its considerable immediacy, with bright floral notes that punctuate the finish with an extra kick of freshness. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The palate is very well balanced with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and just the right amount of salinity. Aeration uncovers hidden spicy notes towards the sappy finish, leaving the mouth tingling after exit. This is an absolutely delightful, accomplished Nenin. »

    A small vineyard of 8 ha of old vines (70% Merlot), now owned by Clos Fourtet. Superb wine, balanced and fruity and tasty, for a very modest price, which rightly became a grand cru classé in 2012. For the Revue du Vin de France as for us : "The best quality/price ratio in Saint-Émilion".

    Revue du Vin de France : 91-92/100 « Le fruit du millésime transparaît dans un bouquet aux parfums de rose, la signature des graves du terroir. En bouche, sa matière souple et ses tanins alertes nous enchantent. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 15/20 « Cerise, cassis, floral, tanins fermes, enrobés, amer fin, finale opulente. »
    Quarin : 87/100 « La couleur est sombre, [...] la bouche agréable, fruitée »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2019 Côte de Baleau is a very petty, gracious wine. Lifted aromatics play nicely off of the wine's mid-weight structure. There is plenty to like in this distinctive, accessible Saint-Émilion. As always, Côte de Baleau is a wine of understatement; the 2019 is especially classy. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « This feels cohesive, almost clinical, especially towards the impressively precise and mineral-driven finish. I cannot recall a Côte de Baleau with this degree of terroir expression. Bon vin! »

    The amateur looking for fine and easily digestible classified great wines should be interested in Fonroque. In organic cultivation since 2006 and biodynamic cultivation since 2008, Fonroque offers an original vision of the terroir of the Saint-Émilion plateau, made of freshness, elegance, controlled and melting power. Alain Moueix, its owner, clearly shows the way forward for the future of the great wines of Bordeaux, all shores combined.

    Revue du Vin de France : 92-93/100 « Une dimension sapide et saline unique sur un fruit radieux. Le jus frais et croquant s’enrobe d’un moulé à la gloire d’une structure où la tension se double de profondeur intégrée dans une matière à la finale aérienne, signe d’une viticulture soignée. »

    Martin (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « The 2019 Fonroque has a ripe, almost exotic bouquet with decadent red fruit, a little excessive perhaps. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins, rounded and velvety in texture, one of the headiest Saint-Émilion crus that I have tasted - completely different to Alain Moueix's Pomerol cru Château Mazeyres. »

    With today 11 ha, the vineyard of Valandraud allows Mr. Thunevin to tighten his selections for the great wine and his second, Virginie de Valandraud (there is a 3rd, Clos Badon, and even a 4th wine!). Rich in colour, always delicious with an elegant tannic structure, Virginie de Valandraud makes those who think that second wines have no soul lie.

    Bettane & Desseauve :

    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 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.
