Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Proprietor Christian Dauriac has hit a home run with his 2005 Destieux. The tremendous effort he has been putting into this property over the last decade has been rewarded with a well-deserved upgrade in the recent Classification of St.-Emilion. A blend of 66% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon (from 45-year old vines), the nearly black-colored 2005 reveals aromas of roasted meats, sweet blackberry and cassis fruit, licorice, tar, smoke, and incense. A modern day blockbuster with superb purity, density, concentration, and length, it should round into drinkable form with another 5-8 years of bottle age, and last for 2-3 decades. It is good to see the only flaw in older vintages, the rusticity of the tannins, completely tamed.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Very pretty mineral, blackberry and light vanilla aromas follow through to a full body, with supervelvety tannins and a long aftertaste of ripe fruit and cream. Best after 2013.

Chateau Destieux, France
The property is located on one of the highest points in Saint-Emilion. The 8.12 hectare estate, dominates a beautiful landscape with a 360 ° view of the Dordogne River valley up to the hilltops of Montagne Saint-Emilion.

The name Destieux comes from an old translation of "des yeux" or "eyes" suggesting the ability to see over the region, with its prestigious neighbouring vineyards and distant Dordogne river. The vines take root in a chalky-clay soil which is slightly covered by a narrow siliceous vein on the top of the plateau.

From more than 30 years, the Dauriac family has owned Chateau Destieux and made a commitment to improving its wine quality and production with one sole ambition: to create, from the vineyard to cellar a concentrate wine that is at the same time elegant and well-structured, an aristocratic expression of a "privileged terroir"
