Winter time


Maison Dubecq remains open without interruption during the holidays.

However, on Friday 24 December and Friday 31 December, our offices will exceptionally close at 4pm.

We wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year, filled with beautiful discoveries and great moments of tasting!


Château Mouton-Rothschild has just unveiled the label for its 2019 vintage, designed by Danish and Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.

Inspired by a solar diagram, the work evokes the nycthemeral rhythms and the path of the sun in relation to the Earth. It is based on the exact cartography of sunrises and sunsets, recorded during a whole year at Ch. Mouton-Rothschild.

Literary season


Every year, September is the month of the grape harvest but also the month of the annual wine guides.
If we have to wait until October 13th for the Bettane and Desseauve Guide (delayed by the sanitary crisis), those of Hachette and the Revue du Vin de France have just been published this week, honouring the best producers of the moment, many of whom have been in our selections for a long time. A big congratulations to all, justly rewarded for their work!

Guide Hachette

With 35,000 wines tasted and 8,000 wines selected, this guide stands out for its comments on "small" wines that cannot be found in any other book. Taking all French regions together, Hachette has awarded more than 500 favourites this year, including :

Bordeaux (without mentioning the countless classified growths honoured):
- PETIT VERDOT by Belle-Vue 2018, a single-varietal wine from Ch. Belle-Vue in Haut-Médoc,
- HAUT-CARLES 2018, a top-of-the-range wine from Ch. de Carles in Fronsac,
- Ch. DALEM 2018, in Fronsac, a regular favourite with a 4th in 5 years!
- Ch. SOCIANDO-MALLET 2018, stainless standard-bearer of the northern Médoc for 40 years,
- Ch. POUJEAUX 2018, the most distinguished and the most Saint-Julien of the Moulis.
Burgundy :
- Domaine Françoise ANDRÉ, two simultaneous favourites for its Beaune Bélissand 1er cru white 2018 and its Corton-Charlemagne grand cru white 2018.
- Domaine de l'ARLOT, for its Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos de l'Arlot 1er cru white 2019.
Champagne :
- Charles HEIDSIECK, two simultaneous favourites for the Rosé Millésimé 2008 and the Blanc de Blancs non millésimé.
Languedoc :
- Domaine de l'OSTAL, or the exuberance of the Minervois tamed by Bordeaux (Lynch-Bages property), a favourite for its Grand Vin 2018.

Guide de La Revue du Vin de France

The RVF green guide is to French winegrowers what the Michelin red guide is to restaurateurs: the reference work that ranks estates from 1 to 3 stars, not according to their latest vintage, but according to their production over the last few years, with all the inertia and consensus that this implies. Here too, we were pleased to see a number of progressions this year:

Among those who went from 2 to 3 stars (maximum score):
- Ch. HAUT-BAILLY in Pessac-Léognan
Among those who went from 1 to 2 stars :
- Ch. BEYCHEVELLE in Saint-Julien
Among those who win their 1st star :
- Ch. DALEM in Fronsac
Among those entering the Guide :
- Clos LOUIE in Côtes de Castillon
