St Emilion Grand Cru Classe
92 Points - Wine Spectator
Good medium ruby. Lively aromas of wild blackberry, minerals and violet (this has 40% cabernet franc); smells austere. Then sweet, bright and penetrating, with lovely energy and minerality to the dark berry flavours. A very ripe wine that finishes with palate-coating tannins and very good thrust. Consulting enologist Stephane Derenoncourt predicts that this will go truffley with a decade of cellaring.
Château Tertre Daugay is distinguished by its elevated situation, on a promontory, or ‘tertre’, with far-reaching views over the Dordogne valley. In the Middle Ages, the hill site served as a ‘tertre du guet’, or lookout mound, and it is to this that the Château owes its name.

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe (in Yquem Case)
Chateau d`Yquem is often described as the greatest sweet wine in the world. After centuries of family ownership, Yquem was finally sold in acrimonious circumstances to Louis Vuitton-Moët-Hennessy in 1999. However, its former owner and director Alexandre de Lur-Saluce remains in charge. Yquem is located on the highest hill in Sauternes and enjoys the best growing conditions in the whole appellation. The 110-hectare vineyard is planted with 80% Sémillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc. Only fully botrytized fruit is picked by the 150 highly skilled pickers and yields are so low that each vine produces only one glass of wine.
