[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Angelus St Emilion Unreleased - 96-97 - - - -
Hide the tasting notes

This is a centered and deep red with blueberry, raspberry, mineral, stone and lemon aromas. Full-bodied, focused and polished. Lovely length. Gentle yet structured. Supple.

Score: 96 - 97 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

One of the darkest colored wines in the vintage is the 2017 Angélus. Its final blend is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, which includes more Cabernet Franc than usual. It's a polished, elegant, layered wine that has beautiful notes of crème de cassis, spice, graphite, and minerality. It has medium to full-bodied richness, fine, silky tannin, beautiful purity and more elegance and charm than normal. I suspect it will put on weight with time in barrel and have two decades or more of longevity.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Barde Haut St Emilion Unreleased - 93-94 - - 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

Very tight and direct with lots of limestone and salt aromas and flavors. Full body and firm and silky tannins. Tightly wound. Impressive.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Lovely plum, cassis and boysenberry fruit flavors glide through here, with polished toast and a bright red licorice accent on the finish. Nice energy.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The deep, inky-colored 2017 Barde-Haut is a seriously good 2017 from Hélène Garcin-Lévêque that offers tons of kirsch, ripe black cherries, and spice aromas and flavors in a rounded, silky, sexy style. It has wonderful purity of fruit, no hard edges, and a great finish. I suspect it will be reasonably approachable on release yet capable of lasting for 10-15 years. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc which will spend 18 months in 80% new French oak.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Beausejour Duffau St Emilion Unreleased - 95-96 - - 93-96 -
Hide the tasting notes

This is very driven and intense with so much limestone and salt character on the palate. Dark fruits, too. Linear and chewy, especially on the long finish. Beautiful center palate of fruit.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Intense, with juicy layers of fig, boysenberry and blackberry compote coursing through. Bramble and spice notes fire up on the finish, which kicks in with an extra bolt of energy at the end. A showy wine that pulls it off.

Score: 93 - 96 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Of the three properties under the helm of Nicolas Thienpont, the 2017 Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse offers the most richness and depth. Blueberries, crème de cassis, graphite, violets, crushed rocks, and spring flowers notes all give way to a structured, vibrant, fresh, yet tannic red that's going to need 3-4 years of bottle age but might end up being one of the top wines of the vintage. Tasted twice. This beauty is made from 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc that was brought in between the 22nd of September and 2nd of October, with yields of 38 hectoliters per hectare (this is 64% of the production). There’s roughly 1,500 cases produced.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Belair Monange St Emilion Unreleased - 94-95 - - 92-95 -
Hide the tasting notes

A compacted and seamless young wine with ripe and fine tannins, focused dark fruit and a flavorful finish. A beauty.

Score: 94 - 95 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Ripe and fresh, featuring delightful plum and raspberry fruit pushing outward, while light savory, mineral and red licorice notes add range through the finish. Sneakily long, with the minerality showing some stamina.

Score: 92 - 95 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Coming from separate vineyards located both on the limestone-driven upper plateau and the slightly more clay and limestone hillsides, the 2017 Château Belair-Monange checks in as 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in roughly 50% new oak. It's a gorgeous wine on all accounts and has more depth and richness than most. Cassis, crushed flowers, cherries, spice, and earthy notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, layered, complex 2017 that has juicy acidity and sensational purity of fruit. Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following 10-15.
