Saint Émilion & Satellites

'2020 is the third in a superb trilogy of vintages, which puts me in mind of the no-less superb trilogy of 1988, 1989 and 1990. It combines the freshness and tension of the 2018 with the depth and vibrancy of the 2019. 2020 is the accomplished synthesis of its two predecessors, and will perhaps prove to be the most amazing of this outstanding trilogy' (Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal of Angélus)

That said, it has such strong contendors, it's tough to see quite what space it occupies within the market when compared to the likes of Pavie Macquin and La Gaffeliere. Back vintages reflect this, with little price growth.L&S (May 2021)

The nose is graceful and violet-scented and the palate is sleek and cool so, all in all, this is a successful Dragon with a serious attitude and a power-packed core, and it will age well for a second wine, giving us at least a decade and more of pleasure.

Deep-fruited, inky black in colour, and yet crisp and lifted on the finish, this is a mighty VCM with a bounce in its step and this levity suits it extremely well.
