    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.

    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.

    Revue du Vin de France :
    Bettane & Desseauve :
    Quarin : 95/100 « Délicat en entrée de bouche, très raffiné au milieu, avec un corps fondant et de l'énergie entre le milieu et la finale, ce vin fin avance lentement, précisément, sans montrer le tannin. Il s'achève long et surtout plus délicieux que jamais à cet âge. »
    Galloni (Vinous) : 94-96/100 « For the first time ever, Angélus is 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot in 2021. There's terrific density and power, especially within the context of the year. »

    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.

    Revue du Vin de France :

    Galloni (Vinous) : 96-98/100 « The 2021 Cheval Blanc is one of the wines of the vintage. Vertical and aristocratic in bearing, Cheval is just stunning. »
    Martin (Vinous) : 95-97/100 « A bit like Ausone, this is an uncompromising Cheval Blanc, very saline and marine-influenced. While not as flattering as the 2020, it will appeal more to those who prefer a cerebral Cheval Blanc. One of the stars of the Right Bank. »

    Impossible to resist the unspeakable complexity of its bouquet, floral and fruity, spicy and liquorice, as well as the incredible depth of its fresh and sumptuous finish.
