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).

    The white wine of Smith Haut Lafitte has built up a solid reputation over the last 10 years, even if it is not a grand cru classé (but Haut-Brion blanc and Pape-Clément blanc are not either). A happy marriage of wood and fruit, it always delivers a beautiful aromatic complexity, from lime blossom to citrus, and a lively, rich and fine structure.

    Quarin : 97/100 «  Minutieux en entrée de bouche, très parfumé, avec un corps aérien et de la grâce dans le toucher, le vin ne cesse de fondre, sur une texture noble qui s'étire longtemps, séveuse, solide, délicate, profonde et complexe. Une superbe réussite. »

    Haut-Brion is the most famous of all the Bordeaux growths, having twice been classified as 1er grand cru, in 1855 and again in 1959 (Graves classification). Haut-Brion is both the oldest of the Grands Crus, with more than five centuries (since 1509) behind it, and the most innovative, introducing stainless steel vats as early as 1960 and green harvesting as early as 1980.
    Its particular situation within the Bordeaux agglomeration makes it the earliest Premier Cru on the left bank, a clear advantage in less mature vintages. For this reason, Haut-Brion's consistency is a benchmark for the whole of Bordeaux, with the intense bouquet of fresh earth, smoke and pine resin so characteristic of the appellation.
    Fortunately, the unique silhouette of its bottle has disrupted the Asian market and has not triggered the same speculative interest there as it has for the other 1er grands crus classés. Haut-Brion is today without question the most qualitative and the least expensive of the premiers.

    See the technical sheet

    Revue du Vin de France : 96-98/100 « C'est un vin très sombre, qui exalte dès ce stade précoce les qualités emblématiques du cru, un vin réservé, d'une captivante profondeur aromatique cependant. La bouche frappe par sa tenue, son allonge presque austère et pourtant très élégante, au grain à la fois soyeux et frais, vibrant. La longueur étirée des tanins domine la spécificité du millésime pour conférer au vin la cohérence et la sérénité d'un futur grand classique. »

    Martin : 91-93/100 « This is a Potensac with purpose. The palate is a little creamier than previous vintages on the entry, but then the tannic framework makes its presence felt. Firm grip, quite fresh and sappy with a fine thread of acidity maintaining poise. This is a superb Potensac. »

There is a peacock's tail of mineral-rich, quite peppery black fruit on the finish, completing a Pauillac endowed with huge potential. »

    As in music, variation consists in making changes to a "theme". Grand-Puy-Lacoste has thus chosen, for his Grand Vin like for his second wine Lacoste Borie, to gather in the same case the variation of the sizes of bottles, allowing to discover the evolution of the wine in time through these three formats (bottle, magnum and double-magnum).

    Apart from the first great classified growths, no other Bordeaux wine is as world famous as Lynch-Bages. Its worldwide success comes as much from its opulent, full-bodied and robust style, from its unfailing regularity since 1975, and from its media promotion orchestrated by Jean-Michel Cazes. Lynch-Bages was the first wine sent into space (Discovery shuttle in 1985). It is even said that it is him who gave the taste of Bordeaux to the Americans!

    Always of a high standard for a reasonable price (in Pomerol), the wines of Gazin, medium-bodied and marked by truffles, are the archetype of the appellation and of exemplary consistency vintage after vintage.

    Revue du Vin de France : 90-93/100 « Gazin n’est jamais le plus sexy des pomerols en primeur et le 2022 ne déroge pas à cette tendance. On saisit tout de même la franchise, la netteté, la dynamique, le sens de la direction du vin derrière un abord un peu abrupt. »
    Bettane & Desseauve : 95/100 « Le finale aux accents de pivoine, d'iris et de violette dynamise un corps à l'intensité soyeuse qui affiche son identité. Beau potentiel. »
    Le Point : 18,5/20 « Bouche fraîche, fruits noirs, bois de réglisse, tanins fins, serrés, salivants ; long, poivré, bonne harmonie, bien persistant. »
    Quarin : 95/100
     « Superbe nez, très aromatique, fin, fruité, avec une note rare de violette à cet âge. Délicatement parfumé dès l'entrée en bouche, minutieux au milieu, avec un toucher raffiné, le vin se développe charnu et très aromatique. Les fleurs l'emportent sur toute chose, avant que la finale ne s'achève sur les fruits noirs. Très belle construction. Belle finale profonde. Une grande réussite. »

    A talented and perfectionist winemaker, Denis Durantou, at the service of a great terroir on the edge of the church of Pomerol between Lafleur and Clinet. L'Église-Clinet is one of the most subtle Pomerols in terms of its aromatic precision, fine grain and satiny texture. Mr. Durantou passed away far too soon in 2020, but fortunately he has three daughters who are united and determined to continue their father's work.

    Revue du Vin de France : 96-98/100 « L’Église-Clinet 2022 prouve qu’une grande sensualité peut s’accompagner d’une certaine réserve [...]. Sans rien perdre de son raffinement aromatique (cette floralité…) ni du satiné extrême de son toucher de bouche, il présente un équilibre à ce stade un peu différent des millésimes précédents, moins basé sur le tranchant, la “verticalité”, avec une sensation acide moins présente, ce qui accentue l’hédonisme de la chair. »
    Bettane & Desseauve : 97/100

    « Nez très aromatique, fin, fruité, pur, délicat et complexe. Délicat en entrée de bouche, avec une texture minutieuse au milieu, de la classe dans le toucher et un fond juteux de fruits noirs, ce vin raffiné fond au palais, noble, complexe et long. Il est rare de trouver à Pomerol une présence fruitée, mûre, fraîche et florale en même temps, plus encore avec 90 % de merlot. »
    Galloni : 96-98/100 « The 2022 L'Église-Clinet is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage on the Right Bank. »
    Martin : 98-100/100 « There's not a hair out of place, exuding the essence of this Pomerol estate with an exceptionally long, intense and paradoxically tender finish. It's a wine that may leave you spellbound... just like this barrel sample. »

    Vieux Château Certan is certainly, with a high proportion of Cabernet Franc (30% on average), the most classic, firm and distinguished Pomerol wine. It does not have the softness and immediate charm of other great Pomerol, but still keeps all these promises as it ages. Very classy!

    See the technical sheet

    Revue du Vin de France : 97-100/100 « Le vin est très aromatique, épicé, floral, exotique, avec un caractère enjôleur, cajoleur, extrêmement séduisant. La texture elle-même affiche un moelleux, une douceur presque décadente, que l’élan de la structure porte avec panache. Encore un grand millésime pour la propriété de la famille Thienpont, complet, dynamique, mais avant toute chose flamboyant ! »
    Bettane & Desseauve : 97-98/100
    « Les cabernets (20% de franc et 5% de sauvignon) trament la bouche et apportent le panache de la finale. Les 75% de merlot confèrent tout le soyeux voulu. »

    « The 2022 Vieux Château Certan is a wine of tremendous sophistication and polish. I expected to see a more opulent VCC, but the 2022 is surprisingly delicate and nuanced. There's really not much more to say except that the 2022 is magical. »
    Martin : 97-99/100 « The Cabernet is very expressive this year and so while it is a real Left Bank/Right Bank hybrid, it is, at the same time, quintessentially Pomerol. Chapeau Alexandre and Guillaume Thienpont. »

    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 : 92-93/100 « Rebond final harmonieux pour ce vin plus en structure qu'en arômes dont on mesure le potentiel. »

    Martin : 90-92/100 « The 2022 Petit Gravet Aîné feels a bit "hemmed in" on the nose at the moment, but it opens with aeration with blackberry, iodine and light briny scents. The palate is medium-bodied, with succulent red fruit, blood orange and orange rind. Fresh with a lively, what feels like a slightly carbonic finish. »

    Revue du Vin de France : 95-96/100 « Derrière une couleur sombre, se dévoile une matière puissante, d'une intensité confondante, qui se voit canalisée par une force calcaire revigorante. Une persistance crayeuse longue, particulièrement stimulante. »

Mineral, nervous, powerful and long, its wines are among the greatest in Puligny. Rated one star in the 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.

    Amazing story as that of Dominio de Pingus. Created in 1995 by Peter Sisseck, a Danish (!), this estate a few kilometres from Vega Sicilia has become a cult in less than 15 years.

    Pingus is the great wine, made from the 4 ha of the estate, 100% tempranillo aged 70 years, biodynamic since 2000. 450 cases per year (an average yield of 10hl/ha, not counting small vintages, such as the 2002, totally downgraded in Flor de Pingus).

    Wine Advocate : 98-100/100 « Tasting a new vintage of Pingus for the rst time is a special moment, and the 2022 Pingus shows the gentler prole of the vintage —it's perfumed, fruit-driven and peachy, with perfume and elegance. Peter Sisseck told me that it's his favorite vintage, because it's more the idea he has for this wine. He compared it to 2000 and 1996. This aged exclusively in barrel; some vintages age for a while in 2,000- and 1,500-liter oak foudres, which was the case for the 2021, 2020 and 2018 but not in 2022. "I liked the evolution of the wine in barrel so much that I left it there the whole time," Sisseck explained. It's young and tender, ripe and juicy, with some spicy notes but with very good freshness and balance. »
