2013 d'Armailhac, Pauillac Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 4-28-2014
This wine surprised us all. Spicy, ripe black cherry fruit, with hints of wet stone, minerals and licorice. It is balanced, long and well-structured. A solid effort! 90-92 points.

2013 Cantenac Brown, Margaux Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 4-28-2014
Ripe fruit in the nose, crushed raspberry and blackberries, very soft and juicy, bright crisp acidity, fresh, maybe a tad light in middle but really nice fruit! 88-90 points.

2013 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 4-28-2014
Excellent sweet core of fruit, surrounded by hints of minerals and earth, with a firm tannic finish. Enough sweet middle fruit to carry the tannins. Good wine! 90-92 points.

2011 Poujeaux, Moulis (1.5L)
Review Date: 4-23-2014
Dark and chewy, with plenty of sweet fruit, cocoa and graphite in this mineral-driven wine. Good balance and fresh, ripe tannins.

2011 Fonplégade, St-Emilion
Review Date: 4-23-2014
Dark and inky in the mouth, graphite and slate, minerals sweet minerals. Still very tannic on the finish and big. Should age well--there is enough fruit to cellar. Great freshness.

2011 Pape Clément Blanc, Pessac-Léognan
Review Date: 4-22-2014
Stony, mineral-driven aromas, intense and concentrated. Powerful for a white, with great acid and focus. Not overdone. Fine, indeed.

2011 Clos l'Eglise, Pomerol
Review Date: 4-22-2014
Big, rich, thick texture, dense and full, quite open in the mouth. Still some aggressive tannins and hints of herbal components.

2011 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)
Review Date: 4-15-2014
Great balance, sweet fruit, almost jammy plum and red fruits; minerals, lots of spice. Polished.

2011 Margaux, Margaux
Review Date: 2-25-2014
Sweet mocha upfront and fleshy fruit, seamless in the middle with a long finish. Lush, sweet and rich. From a very small crop. This is very approachable young. The tannins are silky, but the wine is quite serious. May be my favorite of the vintage.

2011 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)
Review Date: 2-17-2014
Inky color, dark and toasty nose. This is very concentrated and layered, with tons of vanilla and spice. Definitely in a flashy style, but I like it. 90-92 points.

2011 Potensac, Médoc
Review Date: 1-20-2014
A bit firm and tannic. A rustic style.

2011 Poujeaux, Moulis
Review Date: 1-7-2014
Dark and chewy, with plenty of sweet fruit, cocoa and graphite in this mineral-driven wine. Good balance and fresh, ripe tannins.

2011 Beychevelle, St-Julien
Review Date: 1-7-2014
Perfumy nose, good spice, surprisingly sweet, with a soft, smooth finish. Fleshy mid-palate. A bit light but good.

2010 Fonplégade, St-Emilion (1.5L)
Review Date: 12-12-2013
Plummy aromas and dense fruit. One for the cellar.

2010 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux
Review Date: 12-12-2013
Another seamless wine that shows lush black cherries, mocha and spice. The wine is velvety on the mid-palate with silky tannins.
