2004 Malescasse, Haut-Médoc

Decanter: "Lean but pure blackcurrant nose with attractive touch of mint. Ripe tannins, discreet, fine acidity, balanced and graceful." (10/2007) Jancis Robinson: "*Good Value* 53% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot. Still-lively ruby. Lightly sweet, digestive biscuit nose. Fully resolved tannins with a bit of life – fruit and freshness. Mellow pleasure at a decent price. Long and extremely well behaved. Well bought. Drink to 2022.

2004 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Reserva Rioja

94 points James Suckling: "Very perfumed with dried flowers plus hints of leather and smoke. Lots of depth and elegance to this wine with polished velvety tannins and a long finish. Wonderful texture. Drink or hold." (12/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a completely different story. It is a worthy follower of the 2001, the greatest of the Viña Tondonia Reservas of recent times. It has the usual blend and usual levels of alcohol and acidity, bottled after six years in oak barrels.

1999 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc

When young the wines of Château Lanessan are typically a deep, intense ruby color with an elegant nose and fruity, floral aromas. On the palate the structure is complex and dense, melting away harmoniously to a good, long finish. When they are older the wines take on a terracotta tint, and the nose becomes increasingly complex with the appearance of plum and undergrowth aromas. The flavors are smooth, warm, and perfectly harmonious, ending with silky tannins. This 18-year-old bottle is drinking perfectly now! According to Robert Parker, "This underrated ... Read More »

1988 Haut-Bages-Averous, Pauillac

93 points Wine Spectator: "The second wine of Château Lynch-Bages is very tightly wound, with an elegant core of black cherry, herb and cedar flavors cloaked in tough but fine tannins. This is a wine with obvious style and class. Not for early drinking. *#81 of Top 100 Wines of 1991*" (4/1991) K&L Notes: Haut-Bages-Averous was the second wine label for Chateau Lynch Bages until the 2000s when the property changed the name to Echo de Lynch Bages.

2009 Pierre Mineral Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2009 Pierre Mineral Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne

All-Mesnil grand cru bargain!!!! This wine comes from all estate-grown fruit in the grand cru of Mesnil. It is a very clean wine with pure flavors and a complex, subtle nose. The texture is silky and delicate, but the finish is quite powerful. This is a very stylish wine, and a very good deal thanks to a direct buy from the producer. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

2005 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Bosconia" Reserva Rioja

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A worthy follow up to the 2004 is the 2005 Viña Bosconia Reserva, a wine that they consider the most rustic and powerful in the winery, but that I find as elegant and subtle as it gets. This feels very much in line with the 2004, maybe a notch above even, a lower yielding year. The nose is somehow closed and feels young with the elegant rusticity lurking from the bottom of the glass, clean and precise. The tannins are velvety and there is great acidity--a constant here. The wine is terribly elegant. I simply loved this wine. 99,000 bottles were filled in ...Read More »

(5/2013) K&L Notes: Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release.

2008 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (750ml - ships as 1.5L)

Without a doubt, this is one of the best Champagnes we carry at any price. Made from two plots of 65-year-old vines, one in the grand cru of Oger called the Chenys and one in Mesnil called the Derriere Maison, this is among the ultimate expressions of Chardonnay that we have to offer. The wine shows the paradox of 2008 perfectly with great ripeness and scintillating acidity. Add in the richness and complexity of old massal-selected from grand cru, mid-slope sites and you have a must buy for any Champagne lover! Because of the shape of this 750ml bottle, ...

2008 Baron-Fuenté "Grand Millesime" Brut Champagne

Baron-Fuenté is a négociant that owns almost 90 acres of vines and purchases another 90 acres "sur pied," meaning that they pick the grapes. This is an important distinction since many négociants buy "sur lattes," meaning in bottle! The Grand Millésimé is a blend of 45% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier and 15% Pinot Noir that spent more than seven years on the lees.

Established in the early 1800s, when the Marquis of Barolo married the French noblewoman Juliette Colbert, Marchesi di Barolo is a historic estate in Piedmont particularly known for its single-vineyard and riserva wines from the Nebbiolo grape.

1998 Fontesteau, Haut-Medoc

This historic château was constructed in 1277 and renovated in 1997. Its wines are deep and elegant, hand crafted with care. Grapes are sustainably grown on gravelly soil and a deep limestone base, then picked at optimum maturity and carefully sorted. Each plot is vinified separately then blended into the final wine. Fontesteau wines are capable of lasting 20+ years, so this bottling is one to dig into now while it's hitting peak maturity.

After that it has some notes of hung game, spices, beef blood, iron, tea leaves and peat showing mostly as tertiary aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, with a fine thread of acidity going through its spine that is laced with fine tannins. It is quite easy to drink and quite a good price for a Gran Reserva."
