    As well maintained as Canon-La Gaffelière (same owner), under the direction of Mr. Derenoncourt, Clos de l'Oratoire offers practically the same fullness and intensity for half the price.

    Revue du Vin de France : 89-90/100 « Un peu taiseux au nez, le vin affiche une matière légère dans le style du millésime : fruit rouge intense et vivacité en finale. »
    Bettane & Desseauve : 90-91/100

    Martin (Vinous) : 89-90/100 « The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, nice balance and neatly integrated oak, though it lacks a bit of flair on the finish. Still, it should give 10–12 years of pleasure. »

    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.

    Both the 2019 and 2020 vintages were rated 94/100 by the Revue du Vin de France.

    Revue du Vin de France : 91-92/100 « Le cassis domine une bouche charnue, ce qui est une gageure dans ce millésime. Le vin est doté en milieu de bouche de beaux amers et se livre sur l’énergie d’un tanin mûr. La finale revient sur la violette et une douce minéralité. »
    Bettane & Desseauve : 94/100
    Quarin : 91/100 « Délicat en entrée de bouche, puis très savoureux au milieu, avec un joli toucher et un corps juteux, le vin parfume le palais. Il s'achève sèveux, sur une bonne longueur à la tannicité minutieuse. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « The 2021 Fonroque is deep, fleshy and super-expressive. [...] All the elements are very nicely balanced throughout. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 86-88/100 « The 2021 Fonroque offers ripe wild cherries, cassis and violets on the nose, which is quite opulent considering the vintage, though it needs a little more delineation. »

    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.

    Bettane & Desseauve : 90-91/100
    Quarin : 88/100 « Nez intense, fruité et légèrement boisé. Caressant en entrée de bouche, très fruité au milieu, le vin évolue un brin âpre en finale, tout en restant savoureux. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2021 Petit Gravet Aîné is elegant and nuanced, but it is also going to need time to fully come together. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « Fresh and saline on the finish, this comes recommended (especially if you have a penchant for Cabernet Franc). »

    A tiny cru of one and a half hectares adjacent to Clos Fourtet, which came into the Cuvelier family in 2013 and has been vinified by the technical team of Clos Fourtet since 2018. Without losing any of their silky roundness and flattering fruitiness (100% Merlot), the wines have gained in purity and length in recent vintages. They now faithfully reflect their terroir, with the underlying limestone giving the wines minerality and distinction.

    Revue du Vin de France : 90-92/100 « Le nez dévoile la touche florale du millésime. Le fruit se réveille en milieu de bouche. Les tanins assument leur rôle et “verticalisent” un vin poivré en finale. »

    Mrs Papon-Nouvel's other grand cru (with Petit Gravet Aîné). Same organic culture, same sensitivity, same style, with extra flesh and depth. Great wine! Great wine, logically promoted to grand cru classé in 2022.

    From 2005, La Dominique, prestigious terroir adjacent to Cheval Blanc, L'Évangile and La Conseillante, returns in great shape. His velvety and sensual style places him halfway between Saint-Émilion and Pomerol.

    Revue du Vin de France : 91-92/100 « Fraîcheur et franchise caractérisent ce vin. L’extraction des tanins s’est faite en douceur. Il possède du volume et de l’envergure malgré une baisse d’énergie en bouche. »

    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.

    Martin (Vinous) : 90-92/100 «The palate is silky-smooth, pure and charming, with lightly spiced red fruit and a slightly ferrous finish»

    Immediate neighbour of Pavia, Larcis-Ducasse was logically promoted to 1st Grand Cru Classé in 2012 due to its full south-facing hillside exposure and the brilliant work of the Thienpont-Derenoncourt tandem.

    Revue du Vin de France : 94-96/100 « La robe est plus sombre que la moyenne des vins du millésime. Le nez floral est teinté de notes de fruits rouges (fraise, cerise). L’exposition sud a permis de conserver de la chair autour de la colonne vertébrale du vin. Les tanins sont crémeux, élégants. Beaucoup de distinction dans une finale aux notes de chlorophylle. »

    Galloni (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The 2021 is more power than finesse. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « Quite saline in the mouth, this is distinguished by a liberal sprinkling of cracked black and Spanish Padron pepper towards the finely persistent finish. Classy and full of character. »

    An ultra-refined great wine, with a mineral tension that is out of the ordinary in Bordeaux, the fruit of the great terroir of the Côte Pavie, but also of the complicity of Mr Nicolas Thienpont and Mr Stéphane Derenoncourt since 1994.

    Revue du Vin de France : 94-96/100 « Robe profonde et brillante ; touche de menthe fraîche sur un fruit gras (myrtille), acidulé au nez. En bouche, la structure est fluide, souple, légère, à la pointe délicatement poivrée, les tanins raffinés.  »

    In 2012, Haut-Brion bought and combined two grands crus classés (Tertre-Dauguay and L'Arrosée) on the slopes of Saint-Émilion (Côte Ausone), and put a foot in the right bank, called Quintus because it is their fifth property (after Haut-Brion, La Mission HB, Laville HB and Latour HB).

    Their first objective is to make fine, long wines, focusing on freshness and delicacy rather than power or density, more typical of the left bank than the right bank.

    Second objective: to shine in the next Saint-Emilion classifications (its immediate neighbours are Ausone, Belair-Monange, Angélus and Canon, all 1st classified grands crus).

    Bettane & Desseauve :
    Quarin : 95/100 « Minutieux en entrée de bouche, particulièrement aromatique au milieu, complexe et profond, avec de la classe dans le toucher, le vin prend de la puissance entre le milieu et la finale. Il s'achève long, suave, sèveux et délicieux. Il s'agit là de l'expression la plus aboutie que je connaisse dans Quintus à cet âge. »

    Advised by Mr. Derenoncourt, Clos Fourtet regularly and unobtrusively demonstrates that the upper part of the Saint-Émilion plateau can produce wines as great as the Ausone or Pavie hillsides. Sobriety, depth, finesse and intensity are exemplary.

    Revue du Vin de France : 96-97/100 « La pureté de Clos Fourtet 2021 se caractérise par une belle harmonie de fruits rouges. Tout est en équilibre : l’envergure, la tension et la texture soyeuse. L’aristocratie habituelle du vin s’adosse à l’énergie du millésime. »
