U'wine's opinion

"Since Olivier Decelle took over the estate, and under the impetus of Marie-Laure Latorre's excellent work, Château Jean Faure has asserted its distinct identity in the Saint-Emilion landscape, based largely on its blend dominated by Cabernet Franc. The wines are structured, deep and underlined by the freshness of this magnificent grape variety."

Domaine Albert Grivault Meursault 1er Cru Perrières - White 2017 

Start your special day with a glass of this delicious Meursault. With its subtle stone fruit aromas and elegant minerality, this Burgundy white wine is the perfect accompaniment to a brunch or family lunch.

U'wine's opinion

"On Meursault's most powerful and demonstrative terroir, the 2017 vintage counterbalanced the balance with a lovely freshness. Roasted, toasted and buttery notes mingle with more vegetal notes and citrus aromas."

Ettore Germano Barolo Prapo 2016 

If your mum is a lover of Italian red wine, she'll be delighted with this elegant, well-structured Barolo. Its aromas of black cherry, truffle and liquorice make it a perfect choice to accompany a dish of pasta with truffles.

U'wine's opinion

"Ettore Germano has set up its cellar in Prapo, at the top of the magnificent sandstone cirque that is so characteristic of this wine. The sandstone gives the nebbiolo great power, spice, volume and structured tannins. This is one of Barolo's most coveted crus. A virile wine that will nevertheless mellow with age. I've had some wonderful experiences with this wine."

U'wine's opinion

"This second wine from Pauillac is very similar to Château Pichon Baron. Very fine complexity, good ageing potential for the most patient, and at the same time very pleasant to drink today. We highly recommend it."

Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Maltroie - White 2018 

Give her an incomparable taste experience with this Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru. This refined white Burgundy wine seduces with its notes of white fruit, flowers and fresh butter, and is the ideal companion for a seafood platter.

U'wine's opinion

"Made from old vines dating back to 1952, Maltroie is an imposing, powerful wine. The wine is full-bodied and dense with notes of candied fruit, while retaining the minerality of the Chassagne terroirs. Powerful and precise, a superb piece of work".

Château Fleur Cardinale 2014 

Treat your mum to a grand cru classé with this Saint-Émilion. This Bordeaux red wine seduces with its notes of red fruit, spices and vanilla, and is perfect with roast veal.

U'wine's opinion

"The Decoster family have applied their principles and values to wine: precision, respect for the environment, balance, with an ounce of modernity. Whether it's the winery, the wines or the people, everything is worth the trip and I invite you to go and see for yourself. This 2014 gives you a first glimpse, between modernity with its freshness, and tradition with a very well-integrated ageing process."

Domaine de Chevalier 2014 

Red wine lovers will be delighted by this Pessac-Léognan. With its aromas of black fruit, blackcurrant and undergrowth, this Bordeaux wine is the perfect accompaniment to a game dish or mushroom risotto.

U'wine's opinion

"The ability of this estate to consistently produce a red wine and a white wine of the highest calibre must be emphasised. The recipes and ingredients are not the same, and the Bernard family has the expertise to succeed in both."

Domaine de Chevalier 2014, Mother's Day

Château Olivier - Blanc 2020 

For a lighter option, opt for this fresh, fruity Bordeaux wine. With its aromas of citrus fruit and white flowers, it's perfect as an aperitif, with fish dishes or to enhance a fresh salad.

U'wine's opinion

"In my opinion, this is one of the best value for money among the Graves crus classés. I have in mind Château Olivier 1990, tasted recently at the estate, which was splendid. The wines have reached a remarkable level thanks to the meticulous work of technical director Philippe Stoeckle. Special mention must go to the whites. The estate's Semillon grapes come from a massal selection at Château d'Yquem."

Château Olivier - Blanc 2020, Mother's Day

Château Bellevue 2018 

This elegant and refined Pomerol seduces with its aromas of red fruit, sweet spices and vanilla. Serve it with a fillet of beef with morel mushrooms and your taste buds will be delighted.

U'wine's opinion

"2018 is one of those landmark vintages in Bordeaux. For us, 2018 is the 1st very hot vintage in which Bordeaux has produced a very high quality wine. It combines a lot of fruit, elegance, power and great ageing potential. 6 hectares in a single block surrounded by 1er Crus Classés, we're clearly looking at a real nugget."

Château Bellevue 2018, Mother's Day

Château Gruaud Larose 2016 

This structured Saint-Julien seduces with its aromas of black fruit, blackcurrant and liquorice. Serve it with a dish rich in sauce, such as beef bourguignon, to bring out its structure and rich aromas. 

Discover the wine

U'wine's opinion

"Of course, the quality of the gravelly terroir of this second Grand Cru Classé in 1855 no longer needs proving. On the other hand, its irreproachable consistency and the growing quality of its wines are making their mark. A recent vertical tasting among professionals convinced me once and for all that the next vintages of Gruaud Larose will be ones to watch very closely. The 2016, a great vintage, is a good example: very elegant, fine, silky tannins, and lovely minerality. Very good ageing potential."
