Located on the town of Saint-Etienne de Lisse, this pretty vineyard planted on a clay-limestone ridge dominates the Dordogne valley. Plots located north and east enjoy a very good sun, especially in the morning. The family Jacquet, owner, maintains the reputation of this vintage considered one of the best Saint-Émilion Grand Crus since the 19th century. Indeed, in 1889 he obtained a share of the collective gold medal at the Paris Exhibition awarded to various wines of Saint-Émilionais.
"A Jean-Pierre Moueix wine. Fresh and vibrant on the nose. With an extremely dark colour. Very fresh - even skittish! A real emissary of the vintage at this address. Light tannins. 16.5 Points."

"The 2016 Puy-Blanquet is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It has plenty of lush red cherry and cranberry fruit on the nose, a smear of vanilla from the new oak that will be subsumed by the time of bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannin. Yes, there is a bit of hardness here, but that will soften, and there is plenty of freshness on the grainy finish.
