• ChÂteau Magrez Fombrauge


Château Magrez Fombrauge

Bernard Magrez takes no half measures. The Magrez Fombrauge white is rare and unique in this viticultural sector. A wine worth discovering!

Since 2011, this micro-cru is a distinct identity from Château Fombrauge, another property in the portfolio of Bernard Magrez (Pape Clément, La Tour Carnet).

• ChÂteau Valandraud


Château Valandraud

The mastery of Jean-Luc Thunevin has produced a wine made from equal parts Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris. Rich, frank and well-balanced.

The decision to produce whites at Valandraud was made around the turn of the millennium. Jean-Luc Thunevin and his wife, Murielle Andraud, current owners, were inspired by the discovery of 100-year-old white varietal stock in the Saint-Genès-de-Castillon commune, where the estate is located.

99-100

Rated 99-100 by James Suckling

The perfect balance between the ripe fruit of Merlot (62%) and the wonderful Cabernet Franc (38%) expresses the essence of Angélus. The expressive mouthfeel emphasizes its body with refined and sculpted tannins. A wine with promise!

Hubert de Boüard spent his childhood at Angélus. He took over the lead from his father and uncle and was joined in 1987 by his cousin Jean-Bernard Grenié, and then by his daughter Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal in 2012.

This mythical wine produced by the Vauthier family is undoubtedly one of the appellation’s great wines. A gentle and complex wine that extends into a satiny finish.

Situated on limestone hillsides at the extreme southern edge of Saint-Émilion village, Château Ausone’s 6.8 hectares benefit from near-perfect exposure, sheltered from northern winds.

premier grand cru classÉ


Château Beauséjour Duffau-Lagarrosse

Revealing of its terroir, Nicolas Thienpont has produced a sublime wine where power meets refined tannins and the chalky finish of its limestone terroir. A great success!

The Duffau-Lagarrosse family's ownership of Beauséjour extends all the way back to 1847, and today, it is the ninth generation who are in place. Cousins Christophe Redaud and Vincent Duffau-Lagarrosse, currently overseeing the estate and its modest 7-hectare vineyard, enlisted the dynamic duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt in 2009 to help out with vinification.

One of the very best buys every single year. A powerful wine that puts fruit on a pedestal. A tight structure marked by the Cabernet Franc.

Located in the heart of the Saint-Émilion appellation, Beau-Séjour Bécot was acquired by Michel Bécot in 1969. He gradually expanded the estate, careful to only select parcels that would round out the original vineyard.

The perfect vintage for the Bélair-Monange terroir. Aromas of ripe, almost candied fruit wrap beautifully around the excellent tannic backbone. The Moueix family is right to be proud of its 2015.

When Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix took possession of Château Bélair-Monange in 2008, it renamed it in honour of Adèle-Anne Monange, grandmother of current manager Christian Moueix (son of Jean-Pierre Moueix).

An excellent year for Berliquet. The wine is neat, noble and sophisticated with a freshness buoyed by a mineral finish.

This estate which neighbours Château Angélus has a superb vineyard with full southern exposure over the Magdeleine Plateau. Though this estate is more discreet than the other Saint-Émilions, it was nevertheless ranked as a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru in 1986 and it has continued to hold its position alongside some of the appellation’s very best.

Premier grand cru classÉ


Château Canon La Gaffelière

Magnificent Merlots (55%) dominate, offering a refined body and a blend complemented by the use of Cabernets (45%) which provide frankness and structure.

Château Canon La Gaffelière’s vineyard sits on the southern slopes of the Saint-Émilion hillsides, where the clay soils contain limestone and sand. The natural setting offers ideal conditions to capture and store heat, which in part accounts for the nearly equal presence of Merlot and Cabernets.

Château Canon
100

Rated 100 by James Suckling

A serious and complex wine worthy of its rank as one of the greats from Saint-Émilion. Nicolas Audebert skilfully produced this Grand Cru Classé. Congratulations on a magnificent 2015!

French lieutenant Jacques Kanon, privateer during the reign of French king Louis XV, gave his name to the Saint-Martin Estate in 1760. After a succession of owners, Château Canon was almost completely forsaken before the Wertheimer family, who also owns Château Rauzan-Ségla in Margaux, purchased it in 1996.

Grand cru mythique • ChÂteau Cheval Blanc

Château Cheval Blanc

Nearing perfection, Cheval Blanc is certainly one of 2015’s great wines. A wine with unbelievable finesse and body that expresses itself exponentially. The terroir has spoken.

Located in the northwest of the appellation, on the border of the Pomerol commune, Cheval Blanc is a stone's throw away from Châteaux La Conseillante and L'Évangile. Pierre Lurton, the estate's manager since 1991, assisted by highly talented technical director Pierre-Olivier Clouet and, since 2004, consulting oenologist Denis Dubourdieu, tends lovingly to Cheval Blanc as if it were a thoroughbred.

Coming from a renowned Girondin family, Anabelle Cruse-Bardinet has led this Saint-Émilion property since 1999. According to recent historical research, this estate is one of the oldest in the area.

Château Figeac

The 2015 Figeac had us unanimously declaring it one of the appellation’s great wines. The perfect example of a wine to be cellared for several years despite it being sophisticated, elegant and velvety in its youth.

Like its neighbour Cheval Blanc, Figeac's vineyard is spread over gravelly soil that is more Médoc than Libourne. Cabernet holds sway here while Merlot plays second fiddle. Jean-Valmy Nicolas, then co-manager at La Conseillante in Pomerol, jump on board to head its sales and financial business in 2013.

In 2012, the Despagne family celebrated 200 years at their northern Saint-Émilion property which borders Pomerol. Seventh-generation winemaker François Despagne has headed the estate since 1996 following a series of studies in molecular biology, specializing in microbiology, oenology and ampelology.

A combination of strength and elegance, this wine is truly “an iron fist in a velvet glove” with complex black fruit notes and white spice. Its density is unbelievable and it lingers beautifully on the palate seemingly forever. Yet another success. Bravo, Mitjavile!

Known as Château de Tertre before François Mitjavile's arrival in 1978, the property, then covering only 3.5 hectares, is managed by his wife's cousins at Bellefont-Belcier, the neighbouring estate. Production for the two properties is now integrated. Ripe fruit, indigenous yeast and new wood characterize this wine born from these two lieux-dits with ideal exposure: Tertre and Roteboeuf.

Legend has it that this estate takes its name from a former owner who would “trottiner” (scamper about) wherever he went. In any event, its origins are remote in time: the name already appeared on a 15th-century Gascon parchment.

In 1999, Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix breathed new life into this property, formerly known as Château Certan-Giraud. Of the 10.5 hectares that made up the original vineyard, only 4.5 hectares are under cultivation, having been deemed by Christian Moueix to be the most promising.

Coup de Coeur • ChÂteau La Conseillante


Château La Conseillante

An excellent wine! This Pomerol is one of the great successes of 2015. A first vintage for Marielle Cazaux and one which marks the history of Château La Conseillante.

Since 1871, the 12 hectares that make up the Château La Conseillante vineyard have been the source of a wine style that is distinctly reminiscent of a Médoc.

Among the appellation’s stars, aside from its prestigious name, the terroir is beautifully expressed in the 2015 which emphasizes the use of Merlot (92%). A wine with substance and sophistication.

Jean-Pierre Moueix took the reins of Château La Fleur-Pétrus in 1950. A few years later, the vineyard was decimated by the disastrous 1956 winter freeze, requiring the vines to be completely replanted.

In 2007, the d'Arfeuille family gave up one of the most important Pomerol estates in terms of area. Its new owner, insurance company Generali France, wasted no time: it completely renovated the fermentation room, which was put into operation with the 2009 vintage, optimized the drainage system and uprooted the poorly adapted Cabernet Sauvignon.

A Château Latour à Pomerol that is as true as ever. Practically a single variety (90% Merlot), it expresses notes of fruit, gentle spice and graphite. This is a noble Pomerol with keeping potential.

Completely destroyed in the 1956 freeze, the vineyard of Château Latour à Pomerol had to be completely replanted. Émile Peynaud, one of Bordeaux's greatest oenologists, was most likely behind the magnificent 1961 vintage, as it was only in 1964 that Jean-Claude Berrouet entered the scene.

• ChÂteau Olivier
cru classÉ de Graves

Château Olivier

A wine that clearly reflects the Cabernet Sauvignon (56%) used in its creation, offering tight silky tannins and beautiful fruity notes. A wine with excellent potential.

Château Olivier is a remnant of the Middle Ages, having been built in the 12th century. Home to the Black Prince when England’s flag flew over Aquitaine, the estate has belonged to the Bethmann family since 1886. Jean-Jacques de Bethmann, a descendant of Alexandre de Bethmann, who was Bordeaux’s mayor in 1867, currently oversees the property and its 54-hectare vineyard.

A wonderful year for their Cabernet (60%), which has given this Château Pape Clément a powerful character with a fresh and balanced finish.

Château Pape Clément belonged to Bertrand de Goth, archbishop of Bordeaux, until he donned the papal robes in 1305 and took the name Clément. The château, which takes its name from its blessed former owner, remained an archdiocese holding until the French Revolution. A succession of owners followed, and the estate’s fortunes similarly varied.

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

This vintage is a double anniversary—their 25th harvest and the 650th anniversary of the château. Another rousing success for the wines of Smith Haut Lafitte. The proportion of Merlot (33%) in this blend is higher than they have ever used before.

As the name suggests, Château Smith Haut Lafitte formerly belonged to a British man named George Smith, who held the property in the 18th century. The estate, located in Martillac, passed to merchant Louis Eschenauer in 1958, and was subsequently sold in 1990 to the husband and wife team of Florence and Daniel Cathiard, who fell under the estate’s spell.

Rated 100 by James Suckling

A wine of great class that rubs shoulders with perfection. One of 2015’s very best. What more can we say!

In 1977, the purchase of Château Margaux by Greek businessman André Mentzelopoulos caused quite a stir in the world of Bordeaux Grands Crus. It was a gloomy time for Bordeaux, and the arrival of a “Hellenic” at the head of the famous estate was met with suspicion by members of the conservative community. Following the advice of distinguished oenologist Émile Peynaud, André outfitted the property with new barrels and began construction of a huge underground cellar. The praise began with the first vintage and any prejudice was immediately dispelled.

Even if this château owes its name to one of its early owners, British General Charles Palmer, it is only when it was acquired by the Pereire brothers that it really took off.

Sole master since 2011, Jean-Hubert Delon admirably manages the estate, without compromising quality, just as his father had done for 25 years before him.

• ChÂteau LÉoville PoyferrÉ
grand cru classÉ
Château Léoville Poyferré

Among the appellation’s best successes, the beauty of this Léoville Poyferré comes from its balance between tannins, acidity and aromatic richness. Can easily be cellared for several years.

At the beginning of the 19th century, the Léoville estate was divided into three properties: Las Cases, Barton and Poyferré, the smallest of the three. The latter experienced a dizzying ascent, despite the long shadow cast by its two illustrious neighbours, with the arrival of Didier Cuvelier at the helm in 1979.

Classified Quatrième Cru Classé in 1855, Château Saint-Pierre might have languished in obscurity had it not been for the efforts of Henri Martin. When he acquired the estate in 1982, the vineyard was splintered into several properties (as a result of a series of owners).

Clos du marquis

A Cru unto itself, the 2015 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), Merlot (31%) and Cabernet Franc (3%). This blend has produced an elegant wine where the fruit character lingers beautifully into a lovely finish with tight tannins.

Renowned for his frankness of character, Jean-Hubert Delon is an indisputable font of knowledge when it comes to great wine. His passion and perfectionism allowed him to produce Château Léoville Las Cases’ second wine, Le Petit Lion, which was first released in 2007. That same year, Clos du Marquis, which until then had been considered their second wine, became an entirely separate cru, ranking in file with the Médoc Grands Crus Classés, if not surpassing them.

The passionate Bérénice Lurton presented us her 2015 with great satisfaction. The 2015 is undeniably ranked among the best vintages of Climens. This vintage has all the earmarks of the great wines: volume, purity, length and sophistication.

At the head of this outstanding cru, Bérénice Lurton brings all her passion and talent to bear on crafting this wine. At the beginning of the decade, she opted quite naturally for a biodynamic approach. The property's 30 hectares enjoy a remarkable setting, where red earth peppered with pebbles rests on a bedrock of limestone.

PREMIER CRU CLASSÉ
Château Coutet

Château Coutet offers gentle and airy notes of white flowers, pineapple, citrus, honey and vanilla. True to form, a 2015 that is sure to please lovers of Sauternes with its finesse.

Coutet, one of the oldest estates in Barsac, was celebrated in 1787 by Thomas Jefferson as the best sweet wine produced in the area. A Gascon derivative of the word “couteau” meaning knife, Coutet is known for the cutting style of its wines, offering freshness and liveliness.

• ChÂteau Guiraud
PREMIER CRU CLASSÉ
Château Guiraud

“It is the best I have produced at Guiraud in 30 years” is how Xavier Planty describes the 2015 vintage. A Guiraud-style wine with a honeyed softness that balances a beautiful freshness.

Since 2006, Château Giraud has been the collective property of four individuals, Olivier Bernard from Domaine de Chevalier (Pessac-Léognan); Count Stephan Von Neipperg, owner of several Bordeaux estates including Mondotte and Château Canon La Gaffelière in Saint-Émilion and Robert Peugeot and Xavier Platy who direct the estate with brilliance.

• ChÂteau Lafaurie-Peyraguey
PREMIER CRU CLASSÉ
Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey

A wonderful success for Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey. A wine with floral notes paired with candied and tropical fruit. A 2015 with balance that promises a lovely future.

Après avoir appartenu à la famille Cordier dès 1917 et au groupe Suez de 1984 à 2014, ce domaine d’une architecture hispano-byzantine est désormais sous la gouverne de l’homme d’affaires suisse Silvio Denz. Le propriétaire de la cristallerie Lalique continue son implication dans le vignoble, cette fois-ci sur les hauteurs de la commune de Bommes.

• ChÂteau Rieussec
PREMIER CRU CLASSÉ
Château Rieussec

One of the keys to this vintage was the quality of the botrytis in the Sauternes. Château Rieussec has expressed the perfect harvest with a wine that features candied fruit and a restrained richness and a delicate finish.

Since 1984, this jewel of a Sauternes has been produced by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) from a property with exceptional terroir. Their 93 hectares of vines are located in the Fargues commune, neighbouring châteaux Yquem and Fargues in the southern part of the appellation.
