    Bettane & Desseauve : 96-97/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 96-98/100 « La densité d’une chair mûre et riche expose sa profondeur sur un profil très net. La richesse du palais passe par une texture veloutée, une sucrosité savoureuse de fruit noir mûr (cassis). Un tanin crayeux rehausse l’ensemble sur une finale plus minérale. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 17.5-18/20 « Nez riche, fruits noirs, bouche crémeuse, tendue, tanins fins et bien tramés, vifs, poudrés, bonne astringence, salivant, amer délicat en finale. »
    Quarin : 96/100 « Nez intense, fruité, mûr et fumé toasté comme certains Mouton Rothschild. Délicat en entrée de bouche, subtilement aromatique au milieu, avec un corps suave et velouté, non surdimensionné, le vin s'étire en finale, savoureux, subtil, avec un goût de fruits noirs et une douceur de construction jamais atteinte à ce jour. Vin vivant. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « The 2020 Valandraud is impressive. Inky, deep and exquisitely layered, it possesses tremendous richness in every dimension. crème de cassis, chocolate, licorice, new leather, spice and lavender build as the 2020 gains volume in the glass. Silky and plush, with magnificent balance, this is shaping up to be one of the wines of the year. A magnificent effort from Muriel Andraud and Jean-Luc Thunevin. Superb. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « The palate is very well balanced with a sensual opening. This’ll have you smitten from the first sip: silky-smooth with immense depth and harmony. There is tension and precision from start to finish. This 2020 continues a startling run of form by Jean-Luc Thunevin, this representing one of his crowning achievements to date. Chapeau! »

    The wines of Figeac display unparalleled naturalness, freshness and distinction. Without losing any of its finesse and balance, Figeac is currently working hard to reach the highest level of Angelus and Pavie in the future classification (in 2022?).

    Bettane & Desseauve : 97-98/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 97-98/100 « Encore vinifié dans un chai provisoire mais dans le respect du parcellaire, ce millésime de Figeac respecte le fruit classique du cru mis en valeur par un ensemble chaleureux pointé d’une salinité délicate et de précision. Encore sur la réserve comme dans tous ses débuts, ce 2020 n’en préserve pas moins une profondeur solaire dans un tanin qui s’allonge. »
    Dupont (Le Point) :
    Quarin : 96/100 « Nez très aromatique, fin, fruité, subtil, parfumé et délicat. Bouche tout en grâce tactile, avec une folle élégance dans le toucher et une texture noble qui m'a donné envie d'un peu plus de puissance entre le milieu et la finale, d'un peu moins de prudence. Belle persistance incrachable. »
    Galloni (Vinous) :
    Martin (Vinous) : 96-98/100 « Given that the Cabernets comprise 63% of the blend, this has a typical Left Bank personality but with Right Bank precocity. This is a magnificent Figeac from head winemaker Frédéric Faye and his team. »

    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.

    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.

    Revue du Vin de France :
    Galloni (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « The 2020 Le Dôme is incredibly elegant and polished; I can't remember a vintage of Le Dôme with this much finesse and nuance. Bright floral aromatics lead into a core of sculpted red cherry fruit. Dried rose petal, mint, blood orange and cinnamon open with a bit of time in the glass. A promising wine. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 93-95/100 « The 2020 Le Dôme has a backward nose that demands coaxing, eventually revealing very attractive blackberry, wild strawberry, blood orange and crushed stone aromas. The way this builds with aeration is very promising. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins, quite structured and maybe a little more austere than recent vintages. That comes through on the finish, which seems to be clamped down at the moment. It will require several years of bottle age, but it will be worth the wait. »

    Brilliant even in the smallest vintages (1992 was a masterpiece), Angelus has become in 20 years a world-renowned star producing dense, intense wines with surfine tannins. Promoted in 2012 to 1st Grand Cru Classé A, like Ausone or Cheval Blanc, the prices are skyrocketing.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 97-98/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 97-98/100 « La profondeur du fruit noir, épicé et poivré, se nuance des parfums floraux du cabernet franc (rose). En bouche, la chair de cerise proche du noyau rend l’ensemble juteux. La complexité passe ensuite par la violette avant que le tanin peu démonstratif mais tendu de salinité pointe la fraîcheur du vin. »
    Quarin : 97/100 « Nez très aromatique, fin, fruité, pur, subtil, floral, avec une nuance d'épices et de fruits noirs. Moelleux en entrée de bouche, ultra caressant tout le long de la dégustation, avec de la classe dans le toucher, le vin fond, s'étire, à la fois longiforme et résistant. Il s'achève savoureux et noble, sur une belle longueur au grain fin, avec un retour de fleurs et d'épices dans la bouche. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 96-98/100 « The 2020 Angélus is shaping up to be tremendous. Bright and punchy, with terrific energy, the 2020 is more linear and focused than any recent vintages I can remember tasting. Crushed red berry fruit, iron, smoke, mint, chalk and dried herbs all build in the glass. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « It is quintessential Angélus in many ways, sleek and smooth, harmonious and seductive. Those qualities also come through on the palate. This is framed by fine tannins, the Cabernet components coming through strongly on the midpalate. [...] it comes across a little more chiseled and intellectual. »

    Neither quite Saint-Émilion nor really Pomerol, the inimitable Cheval Blanc occupies a special place on the right bank, on the famous gravelly soil of the Figeac plateau.

    Bettane & Desseauve :98/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 98-99/100 « L’assemblage de 31 parcelles, les vieux cabernets francs, la veine d’argiles bleues, les graves construisent la grandeur de ce vin. Le nez où pointe une floralité très particulière au millésime est d’une précision millimétrée, sur un fruit séveux et frais qui fuse dans une finale où la fraîcheur réglissée du millésime passe au-dessus d’une profondeur exceptionnelle. »
    Dupont (Le Point) : 18,5/20 « Fruits noirs, gelée de mûre, cerise, bouche fraîche, élégante, savoureuse, longue [...] Très persistant. »
    Quarin : 99/100 « Nez intense, fin, subtil, complexe, pur, avec des nuances de fruits noirs mêlés aux fruits rouges. Notes de framboise et de fleurs. Inimaginable ! Il est plus frais à l'agitation du verre, avec toujours cette touche aromatique en relief qui orne le fruit noir, fraîche et presque feuillue comme la menthe pourrait l'être. Moelleux en entrée de bouche, ultra fondant au milieu, absolument délicieux et d'une richesse de saveurs incroyable entre le goût, le toucher et toute la noblesse du lieu, le vin s'envole en finale sèveux, parfumé et pourtant vif. Un rendu insaisissable, contrasté et d'une folle personnalité.  »
    Martin (Vinous) : 96-98/100 « The bouquet demands several minutes to really open, delivering a payload of intense black cherry and blueberry fruit, pressed violet, a hint of licorice and crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with finely chiseled tannins, and quite dense and weighty in the mouth, though not sinewy. Everything is finely proportioned and multilayered, leading to a mineral-driven finish. This is a very serious, long-term Cheval Blanc with a glorious future ahead, though it would be wise to cellar this for a decade if you can resist temptation. »

    The glory of Cabernet Franc on a limestone hillside.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 98/100
    Revue du Vin de France : 97-98/100 « Peu loquace dans ses débuts, comme à son habitude, Ausone 2020 ne lâche pas grand-chose. La profondeur des massales de cabernet franc est cependant au rendez-vous et la verticalité classique du cru se conclut dans un ensemble plus velouté que le nez encore austère. »
    Quarin : 99/100 « Nez très aromatique, fin, fruité pur, complexe, noble et profond. Touche légèrement vanillée sur un fond de framboise très mûr. Velouté en entrée de bouche, complexe au milieu, extrêmement fondant, avec une grâce aromatique et tactile folle, le vin avance lentement, juteux et profond. Dans les tout derniers instants de la bouche, il marque une touche d'austérité rappelant le calcaire comme si le millésime l'avait invité à surligner son origine. C'est là une merveilleuse identité. »

    In 2004, Jean-Michel Chartron gave a new impetus to the family estate, with the chance to have an extraordinary land heritage (the Clos des Chevaliers is the best part of the Chevalier-Montrachet, itself considered the best grand cru in Puligny after Montrachet). Mineral, nervous, powerful and long, its wines are among the greatest in Puligny. Rated one star in the 2021 Revue du Vin de France guide.

    Appointment : Jean-Michel Chartron was doubly elected "Winegrower of the Year": in the magazine "Bourgogne Aujourd'hui" in March 2018 and in the Hachette guide in September 2018.

    In the north of the Côte de Beaune behind Pernand-Vergelesses, Domaine Chartron has a tiny vineyard of 0.6 ha, planted in 1970 with pinot noirs. The result is a confidential production of a fresh, fairly light, very drinkable, fruity and unpretentious red Burgundy, "for every day".

    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.

    Terroirs : La Madonne and Chanson in Chavanay, Sainte-Épine in Saint-Jean de Muzols, Les Oliviers, Le Paradis and Saint-Joseph in Mauves

    Varieties (age of vines) : 100% syrah (60 to 100 years)
    Alcohol content : 13.5°
