Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Aromas of toasty oak and berries follow through to a medium body, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Polished and attractive. This has a solid core of fruit. Best after 2012. 2,830 cases made.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Proprietor Christian Dauriac's 12-acre vineyard in St.-Emilion’s commune of Ste.-Hippolyte can produce beefy, tannic, rustic-styled wines, but over recent vintages he has tamed the tannins, producing more charm and finesse in his cuvees. The deep, opaque purple-tinged 2006 reveals attractive creme de cassis and blackberry notes intermixed with hints of graphite and roasted herbs. Dense, medium to full-bodied, and powerful with high, but sweet, well-integrated tannins, this lovely wine should be at its finest between 2013-2026.

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"
