Wine merchant

Wine merchant in Bordeaux since 1988

The moon tore the dress of the night.
Drink some wine now; that alone rejoices.
Enjoy happiness; soon the moonlight
On our grave it will shine silently.
Omar Khayyam

“Yesterday is less interesting than tomorrow”, and yet.

Synonymous with finesse, passion and innovation, Alias Lawton : it is the expertise of the trade and the poetry of wine in Bordeaux. We are more than just wine merchants: we are storytellers, artists and dreamers.

Yes, we love Wine. For its complexities, its shared moments. For everything it highlights and for its rarity. For us, each bottle is a work of art that makes the moments it accompanies immortal. So it was unthinkable to only talk about its content and its container. This is why we imagined and created a unique studio to highlight the different references that we present.

Château Quintus

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

First vintage of the château

Château Quintus, located on a promontory in Saint-Émilion, was acquired by Domaine Clarence Dillon in 2011. The name “Quintus” refers to the Gallo-Roman tradition of naming the fifth child in the family as such. This estate is distinguished by its varied microclimates and its exceptional limestone terroir, favoring the cultivation of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The vision of Robert de Luxembourg, president of the estate, is to create one of the greatest wines of Saint-Émilion, by combining tradition and innovation.

The 2011 vintage, characterized by a varied climate, allowed for slow and even ripening of the grapes. When tasting, Château Quintus 2011 presents a beautiful aromatic complexity with notes of ripe red fruits, plums and a spicy touch. On the palate, the wine stands out for its elegant structure and silky tannins, offering remarkable length.

Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux


Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux 2008 is the second emblematic wine of Château Margaux. This vintage is distinguished by its elegant and homogeneous balance, despite slow ripening of the grapes due to varied climatic conditions. Composed of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, it offers a beautiful aromatic complexity with notes of raspberry, strawberry and light nuances of tobacco.

On the palate, Pavillon Rouge 2008 is characterized by fine tannins and a delicate structure, offering a soft and harmonious finish. This wine can be enjoyed now, but it will continue to improve in the cellar for 12 to 15 years.

Produced in the typical gravel terroirs of Margaux, this wine benefits from the heat released by the soil during the night, promoting optimal maturation of the grapes. The vinification and aging in French oak barrels provide a finesse and depth which make this vintage a real success.


La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-brion

Pessac Léognan

La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion is the second wine of the prestigious Château La Mission Haut-Brion, located in Pessac-Léognan. Produced in small quantities, this wine is a tribute to the estate's chapel, erected in 1698 by the Vincentian priests. La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion 2010 embodies the elegance and complexity of its terroir, offering an exceptional tasting experience.

The 2010 vintage was marked by a varied climate with periods of intense heat and cooler conditions, leading to slow but steady ripening of the grapes. The manual harvest made it possible to select small, tasty and fruity berries.

Mouton Rothschild


Philip by Robert Wilson

Château Mouton Rothschild is the perfect alliance between tradition and innovation. Acquired in 1853 by Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild, this Pauillac estate has become an emblematic symbol of the great wines of Bordeaux. Under the visionary leadership of Baron Philippe de Rothschild since 1922, the château initiated full bottling on site and transformed each label into a work of art. Since 1945, renowned artists such as Dalí, Chagall and Warhol have contributed to the famous “Art and Etiquette” collection.

This vintage is styled by the famous and fascinating image poet: Robert “Bob” Wilson. It features the owner at the time, Philippine de Rotschild, against a colorful background where the green of the vines and the gold of the sun match the ranges of this wine, from light red to deep purple.

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande


Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is the embodiment of feminine elegance in Pauillac. This second Grand Cru Classé from 1855 shines with its purity and refinement, a discreet and majestic force. Owned by the Rouzaud family since 2007, also owner of the prestigious Maison de Champagne Louis Roederer, this château illustrates the perfect symbiosis between tradition and modernity.

The 2009 vintage was marked by a dry winter followed by a mild and rainy spring, then a dry and sunny summer. This climate favored regular flowering and homogeneous ripening of the berries, giving a sunny, generous and legendary wine.

Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is truly a work of wine art, a jewel of the left bank of Bordeaux.
