90 pts Revue du Vin de France

“The concentration of fruit and greediness very present in the 2018 is the signature of the estate. Still dominated by wood, the nose smells of lichen and undergrowth. The fiery woodiness on the palate indicates that the Grand Vin will need some time to mature; it could last 15 years.” Publication: October 2021

88 pts Wine Doctor by Chris Kissack

Château Fleur Haut Gaussens La Bergeronnette (Bordeaux Supérieur) 2018: This is pure Cabernet Franc, from selected parcels over 2 hectares, with limestone and clay soils. The fruit is picked by machine and sorted by densitometry, before a cold soak, vinification in steel, and 30% of the blend saw five months in new 500-litre oak barrels....

91+ pts Markus Del Monego 2019

“Intense purple colour with purple hues and an almost black core. Expressive nose with distinct aromas reminiscent of blackberries, blackcurrant jam, sweet spices, discreet toasting and floral notes in the background. On the palate, well structured and balanced with very good length, juicy ripe fruit and sweet spices.” 91+ pts.

VINOUS Antonio Galloni

88 pts “The 2019 Fleur Haut Gaussens is a soft, fruity Bordeaux Superieur to drink now and over the next handful of years. Succulent blue/purplish fruit, spice, lavender and licorice are nicely delineated. All this needs is a bit more on mid-palate.”

Hubert Guide 2017

Arômes intenses, expressifs et exubérants de fruits noirs, de pépins de cerises, de violettes, bouche également aromatique, douce et charnue, tanins fins et beaucoup de fraîcheur. Le tout avec élégance. Note :15,5/20 Publication : 2017

Jancis Robinson

A most unusual varietal red Bordeaux that could be almost mistaken for high-quality Argentine red. Rich and flattering with a velvety texture. Perfect for those who like to envelop by their wine. Publicaton: Décember 2017  

Wine Enthusiast release 2017

This 100% Malbec from Hervè Lhuillier’s young 2.5-acre parcel is a spicy ripe wine that reflects the warmth of the vintage. Great tannins and bold fruitiness are well blended for a wine that has good potential. Drink from 2019. Grade : 90 pts Publication ; September 2017

Harpers !

A certain disregard for the rules went into the making of this wine, which departs widely from conventional Bordeaux techniques. Made from a small single plot in Verac, the six-years-old vines have produced a Malbec rich in blackberry blond tobacco, peppery spices and sweet tannins. One to savor. Publication : March 2017

Wine Advocate !

« The 2015 La Viminière from Château Fleur Haut Gaussens is a pure Malbec selection that is matured 50% in French and American 500-liter barrels, and the remainder in tank has a lifted blackberry –scented bouquet that feels a little pinched at first, but it seems to son open in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied...

Decanter Bergeronnette

100 % Cabernet Franc isn’t usually associated with Bordeaux – or Burgundy-shaped bottle! This shows juicy, ripe, fruit but still with the grape’s classic bell pepper notes. The tannins aren’t that shy so don’t be afraid to pair it with a rib of beef. Grade : 90 pts  

Harpers bergeronnette

It’s unusual to find a single varietal Cabernet Franc from Bordeaux and this is reflected in La Bergeronnette, the French name for the white wagtail often spotted in the 2ha plat. Slow and gentle extraction in stainless steel tanks and very little pumping over allow for the cabernet Franc aromas, elegant palate and silky tannins...
