We tasted their 2019 Petit Manou the other week amongst two dozen other Bordeaux and it was ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL - much better than some of the $60-90 bottles that it shared the table with. For an ‘every day’ drinking Bordeaux, this one hits so much harder than that.

It’s BURSTING WITH ENERGY, yet silky smooth with good weight and tension and a finish that lingers for a mile. The couple are so meticulous about their organic farming practices that they don’t even apply for certification because they don’t feel like, “it goes far enough” the sign of someone who’s doing it religiously, and not for show. 

"From an 18-hectare estate planted at a density of around 10,000 vines per hectare, the 2019 Clos Manou is a serious wine. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of dark berry fruit, cigar wrapper, licorice and espresso roast, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with terrific concentration, lively acids and plenty of ripe, powdery tannin that will reward a bit of bottle age. It's closed with an Ardeaseal technical cork as used by Burgundy's Domaine Ponsot among others. This estate merits a mention in any list of Bordeaux's finest under-the-radar producers." -92+ Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 

"The 2019 Clos Manou has a ripe, extroverted bouquet of black cherries, mulberry, rose petal and slight confit aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe tannins, fleshy and generous. The smooth, spicy, voluminous finish is irresistible. Can I say "yummy" in a professional tasting note? Yummy." -92 Points, Neil Martin

"The 2019 Clos Manou is superb. Dense, plush and explosive, the 2019 is packed with inky dark fruit, chocolate, spices, new leather and licorice. This extroverted Medoc is super plush." -92 Points, Antonio Galloni

"Aromas of dark plums, blueberries, earth, bark and gravy. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Dark and earthy character. Firm finish." -92 Points, James Suckling
