    Second wine of Rieussec, created in 2002. Expressive and seductive - flowers, white peach, honey - on a body that is half sweet but very elegant (terroir obliges). The Sauternes affair, its market price being even lower than its production cost!

    Property Rothschild (de Lafite). Contiguous to Yquem, Rieussec is one of the sweetest wines of the Sauternes region, revealing itself only after at least 10 years in the cellar. Evolving from 2013 onwards towards a more elegant, even delicate style, Rieussec magnificently combines richness and finesse. Proof of this is its 2016, described by M. Quarin as "the great return of Rieussec among the great sweet wines of the Gironde", rated 93/100.

    Rated 94+/100 by the Revue du Vin de France « Il s'exprime sur une note d'ananas frais. L'attaque est vive, avec une liqueur mieux équilibrée. La finale laisse ressurgir de petits amers façon agrumes confits, comme si ce cru s'était affiné. » (Nov. 2020)

    Known for producing one of the firmest and tightest (even robust) Pauillacs available, Duhart-Milon has since 2010 refined its style to gradually approach that of Lafite (same owner and same team). New direction and progress amply confirmed in 2015 and 2016, with an unprecedented charm and fatness. Given the quality of its terroir (the only 4th Grand Cru Classé in Pauillac), Duhart-Milon has certainly not finished its progression.

    Le Pomerol au superlatif: located between Pétrus and Cheval Blanc, on a terroir combining gravel and clay, 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, managed by the Lafite-Rothschild team.

    2017 vintage rated 97/100 by Antonio Galloni "The 2017 L'Évangile, 100% Merlot for this first time, is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. [...] Time in the glass brings out lovely aromatic top notes that add freshness. A rapturously beautiful wine, L'Évangile is stellar". (March 2020)

    2017 vintage rated 96/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin "Minutieux dans son toucher dès l’attaque, puis finement gras en milieu de bouche, fondant et parfumé, le vin prend une dimension supplémentaire entre le milieu et la finale, pour s’achever long, noble et surtout incrachable". (Oct. 2020)
