Bordeaux

Bordeaux

We're extremely focused on Bordeaux - several staff members fly over to the region on multiple trips each year to taste new vintages from barrel and older vintages from bottle. K&L also enjoys excellent relationships with negociants and châteaux, and over the years we've established outstanding allocations on the top wines. It hasn't hurt that one of K&L's owners is a complete Bordeaux fanatic and our main buyer. The top red wines are typically blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and the white are primarily Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, though the blends vary substantially depending on which part of the region you're talking about. Within Bordeaux you'll also find the sweet wines of Sauternes. Interested in great Bordeaux? Look no further...

2009 Saint Martial, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2009 Saint Martial, St-Emilion

High quality, value Bordeaux is one of the great pleasures in wine. Saint Martial is a fine St-Emilion estate located along the Dorgodne River. Originally founded by the Dupeyrat family, it is now run by Micheau Maillou and family, and comprised of just 3.7 hectares. Great care is taken in the vineyard, and many of the vines have some real age with an overall average of 45 years. Predominately Merlot with 20% Cabernet Franc, this is classic St-Emilion split between 1/3 new oak, 1/3 used, 1/3 third neutral vats. With just the right amount of age in the bo... Read More »

2015 Tour Leognan, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2015 Tour Leognan, Pessac-Léognan

Coming from the same vineyards and the same careful cellar-work as Château Carbonnieux, the younger sibling Château Tour Leognan provides the young-vine version for earlier drinking pleasure, and is a joyful way to enjoy fresh Bordeaux while you wait for the big dogs to mature. The heralded 2015 vintage provides a little extra power here, and gives this bottling a bit more depth of seriousness.

1998 Haut Franquet, Moulis

We discovered this wine on our 2017 Bordeaux trip and it has finally arrived. A neighbor of Poujeaux, I must admit i have never seen the property, but what they did in 1998 is commendable. Some 1998 left bank wines are a bit coarse and tough-this, like the Poujeaux, is elegant and fruit driven. Perfect hamburger wine.

2017 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The final blend of the 2017 Cos d'Estournel is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Very deep purple-black in color, it offers up intense scents of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and black cherries with touches of incense, spice cake, star anise and plum preserves plus a perfumed hint of potpourri. The palate is medium-bodied with very firm yet wonderfully ripe, "sweet", fine-grained tannins at just 13% alcohol—something of a miracle in our modern times.

2015 Jouanin, Cotes de Castillon

Thank the emerging region of Cotes de Castillon for this spectacular deal in red Bordeaux from the well-balanced 2015 vintage. This cuvee shares many qualities of top-flight St-Emilion, with a great sweetness of fruit along with vanilla and spicy notes from new oak. Everyone who loves wine knows, it is hard to find a steal in Bordeaux these days, but this wine offers a lot of wine for the money, with layers of lush up-front black and red fruit characteristics, cellar-able, too, over the short term.

2014 Tronquoy-Lalande, St-Estèphe Top Pick!
2014 Tronquoy-Lalande, St-Estèphe

93 points James Suckling: "Another big, dark St.-Estèphe, but in spite of the rich body and some perceptible alcohol, there is also a cool, minty note. Slightly sweet finish in spite of all the tannins. Spice comes through at the end. Drink in 2020." (2/2017) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Fruit forward, this wine shows ripe blackberries and dark plums on the palate. It exudes a richness that is contrasted by intense acidity and lifted fruit flavors. (RV)" (4/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Just as expressive from bottle as it was from barrel, the 2014 Tronquoy-Lalande is superb. Black cherry, plum, gravel, smoke, savory herb ...Read More »

2015 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Impressive richness and clarity of red and dark berries. Lightly spiced-pastry aromas, too. The palate has a very crisp, polished and groomed tannin texture, as well as super fresh flavors that carry long. Great wine. Try from 2022." (2/2018) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "With structured tannins and red berry notes, this is already showing an elegant structure. It is the fruit that sings here, gently supported by the fine, dusty tannins. (RV)" (4/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cantemerle is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. It offers plenty of blackber ...Read More »

2015 Guiraud "Le  G" Blanc Bordeaux Top Pick!
2015 Guiraud "Le G" Blanc Bordeaux

91 points Decanter: "Pungent Sauvignon characters evident on the nose with notes of white flowers and nettles, interspersed with burly hints of grapefruit, lanolin and oil. Brisk acidity on the palate, fresh with good purity, but lacking a little harmony at the moment. Will improve. (OC, CG, AH; panel tasting)" (10/2017) 91 points James Suckling: "Attractive citrus, grassy elements and lighter stone fruits lead to pawpaw and ripe melon on the palate in a fresh, approachable style. Drink or hold." (3/2018) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely yellow apple, mirabelle plum and apricot notes burst forth, quickly harnessed by acacia and ve ...Read More »

2014 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2014 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

94 points James Suckling: "Very aromatic and chalky on the nose with blackberries and blackcurrants. Licorice, too. Full to medium body, savory and chewy tannins, yet this always remains polished with a long and pretty finish. Drink in 2020, but hard not to drink now." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Barde-Haut has turned out beautifully. Dark cherry, mocha, spice, leather and tobacco flesh out in the glass. Effortless, supple and nicely layered, the 2014 hits all the right notes. The midweight style of the year comes through very nicely in this classy, polished Saint-Émilion.

1996 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very good example of this...estate, the 1996's saturated dark ruby/plum color is accompanied by textbook aromas of black currants, smoky new oak, minerals, and tobacco. Well-made, with moderate tannin, excellent purity, and a medium-bodied, ripe, melted asphalt-flavored finish, this [is a] seductive Lynch-Moussas...(RP)" (4/1999) K&L Notes: In February 1998, Robert Parker wrote: "Lynch-Moussas is clearly on the comeback trail, as evidenced by the 1995 and 1996 efforts, which are two of the finest wines I have tasted from this Pauillac estate." Just tasted in 2015... Read More »

2009 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac Top Pick!
2009 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel, this appears to be the finest Lynch Bages since the 2000, 1990 and 1989. According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense o ...Read More »

2014 Les Tourelles de Longueville, Pauillac Top Pick!
2014 Les Tourelles de Longueville, Pauillac

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Named after the turrets that surmount the château of Pichon Longueville, this wine has its own dedicated portion of the vineyard. It is open, generous and full bodied. Ripe berry fruits dominate while still leaving room for the fresh acidity typical of the 2014 vintage. (RV)" (4/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "The currant and berry character with hints of chocolate is impressive on the nose. Full body, tangy acidity and soft and velvety tannins. It’s rich and satisfying. Second wine of Pichon Baron. Better in 2021." (2/2017) Vinous: "The 2014 Les Tourelles de Longueville is sof ...Read More »

2017 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Shows a lovely, engaging feel, offering succulent blackberry and cherry compote notes. Delightfully pure, with light echoes of bramble, chalk and anise flittering through the finish. Silky and refined, this has length to burn. (JM)" (4/2018) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine revels in its soft black fruit flavors. Supported by structured tannins that are already well integrated, it shows touches of wood and spice at the end. This is going to be a generous, fruity wine from 2023. (RV)" (4/2018) 91-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from an incredible terroir located on the limestone plateau just outside the villa ...Read More »
