Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

80% Merlot; 20% Cabernet Franc.

Château Puyblanquet has been the historic property of the Malet de Roquefort family (Ch. La Gaffelière) since 1819, and was unfortunately sold in 1959 as part of an inheritance. In 2021, it was finally returned to its original owner. This 19-hectare single vineyard, located on a clay-limestone hillside in Saint-Étienne de Lisse, now benefits from the same care as its big brother. It's no surprise, then, to find in its wines the charm and finesse of texture for which Ch. La Gaffelière is renowned.

Neal Martin: 87-89/100
The 2023 Puyblanquet is powerful, deep and resonant. A burly Saint-Émilion, the 2023 packs a pretty serious punch. Red/purplish fruit, rose petal, spice and menthol are all dialed up in this pretty wine. I would like to see more focus in the aromatics. This is a work in progress, slightly hampered by some Brett and angularity. Tasted two times.

Jane Anson: 92/100
Gorgeous inky colour. Bright, zesty, full of bright fruit and fresh acidities, great floral aromatics, heavy spice on the finish. 50% new oak, 42hl/h yields, harvest September 20 to October 5.
