Competition “Expression Wine growers Bio
of New Aquitaine 2017“

« Hot flint notes and spices recall the youth of the vintage. The charm of the wine opens in the mouth with the generosity of an opulent and full-bodied tannin that frames sensations of ripe fruit, prune and fresh leather. Its finish is graceful and balanced. »

BETTANE and DESSEAUVE

Score 90/100 « Deep nose of black berries with a touch of mint and licorice, the dense and powerful mouth ends on the eucalyptus. »

James SUCKLING

Score 88-89/100 « A juicy wine with a pretty core of fruit and firm tannins. Medium body, fresh acidity and a juicy finish. Delicate for a barrel sample. »

My wines and More – Christer BYKLUM

Score 86-88/100 « Ruby dark fruits, some spices, anise nose, blueberries. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, blueberries, spices, anise, bit woody finish. »

Drink 2021-2026 – Jancis ROBINSON

Score 16+/20 « Very dry end but very sappy and exciting start even if it falls off a little on the end. You have to admire the ambition! And it’s very obviously not a St-Émilion. Actually tastes more like a leftbank wine. »

GAULT & MILLAU

Score 16-17/20 « A slightly herbaceous nose, elegant, iris, a little reduced too. Juicy, flavourful, tasty for a mouth full of density in elegance and sweetness. Massive and perfectly executed. »

The Wine Cellar Insider

Score 88-89/100 « Floral, with red and dark cherry, plum and licorice on the nose. The wine is medium/full bodied, fresh, earthy and bright ».

Weinverstand – Ulrich SAUTTER

Punkte 89-92/100 « Eine recht intensive Kirschfrucht und leicht aldehydige Noten. Weich am Gaumen, sandiges Tannin, ausgewogen und adrett – ohne besonderen Tiefgang, aber solide und in seinem mittelgewichtigen Stil recht klassisch. Erscheint durchaus bewertbar, die leichten Oxidations zeichen verschwinden im Glas. Dennoch mit leichtem Vorbehalt. »

Falstaff (Futures Tasting April 2017) – Peter MOSER

Score 90/100 « A slightly herbaceous nose, elegant, iris, a little reduced too. Juicy, flavourful, tasty for a mouth full of density in elegance and sweetness. A massive and perfectly executed coast. Real guard potential »

L’EXPRESS Supplement – 7 June 2017

Score 17/20

Primeurs Primeurs Vintage 2016 – Bernard BURTSCHY

Score 16.5/20 « Garnet dress with a nice nose of a great frankness. The wine is very elegant kept by a fine merlot of great finesse, the wine has charm, the tannins are light and fine. A beautiful success in a delicate and refined style. This wine of great regularity was elaborated with 95% of merlot and 5% of cabernet –sauvignon. »

International Sommeliers – Summer 2017

« Château Fougas Maldoror in biodynamics reveals aromas of peony and a mouth summoning blueberries and exquisite cocoa notes. One of the great successes of the appellation Côtes de Bourg. »
