2009 Branas Grand Poujeaux, Moulis Top Pick!
2009 Branas Grand Poujeaux, Moulis

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage from the backwater appellation of Moulis, the 2009 Branas Grand Poujeaux is a blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. A big-time wine, opaque purple in color, with loads of cassis, smoke, incense and licorice as well as an earthiness reminiscent of a St.-Estephe, this wine is full-bodied and long, with sweet tannin and an overall classic constitution. It can be approached now but should age nicely for 15-20 years. (RP)" (12/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Clearly ripe, with a juicy core of dark fig, cassis and blackberry flavo ...Read More »

1995 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

91 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of crushed blackberries, licorice and Spanish cedar. Full-bodied, concentrated and structured. Give it some time. (JL, Web Only-2007)" 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red with a pale rim. Initially closed nose opens slowly with aeration to offer delicate blackcurrant and mineral aromas complicated by a touch of field herbs. Then richer and deeper on the palate, with flinty blackcurrant, raspberry and herbal flavors carrying nicely through the aftertaste. The chewy, peppery tannins have smoothed out nicely with age. This wine has already developed much more depth and ...Read More »

1983 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis

90 points Wine Spectator: "Big and well integrated, with loads of fruit and tannins but a long velvety finish. (JS)" (10/1994) Decanter: "Fairly deep robust red; sweet ripe elegant Cabernet nose, oaky; quite rich, good concentration, well balanced, youthful and more vigorous than 1982, tight, drinking well now but will hold; quite good length." (6/1998)

1962 Chasse Spleen, Moulis (Previously $300)

On the "Route des Chateaux" in the Medoc, just after the village of Arcins, to the left after the famous inn the Lion d'Or, are the vineyards of Chasse-Spleen. South of the gravelly brow of Grand Poujeaux, this vineyard benefits from a remarkably well-drained subsoil and is superbly well exposed to the hot summer sun.

2003 Ferriere, Margaux

92 points James Suckling: "Loads of raspberry and blackberry jam on the nose. Full and pretty, with strawberry jam and vanilla character, yet still subtle and fresh. Give this time to mellow. Pull the cork after 2012." (3/2011) 89 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry and currant with lots of toasted oak. Beautiful nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a slightly austere finish. A little too much new wood at the end now, but should come together with bottle age. Best after 2008." (3/2006) K&L Notes: "Watch for this property now and in the future. Under the control of Claire Villars (Daughter of the late Bernado... Read More »

2003 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Always one of the star crus bourgeois, Chasse-Spleen has produced a 2003 that manages to combine the rich, ripe fruits of the year with the right tannins and sweetness, along with blackberry fruits. It has the elegance and delicacy of Moulis, as well as some good intensity of flavor." (5/2006) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Soft and voluptuous with plenty of red and black currant fruit notes intermixed with licorice, spice box and underbrush, this well-made, medium to full-bodied 2003 has good precision and freshness." (8/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Very dark. Some strange wood on the nose -- a bit like easter ...Read More »

2015 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "This is a very solid 2015 with lots of tannin and fruit at the finish. Full body. Long finish. Impressive. One of the best ever from here." (4/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. The pure red-fruit flavors of this wine shoot through the firm tannins to give freshness while allowing plenty of space for the development of the tannins. It is a wine that shows both the fruit and the structure of the vintage. (RV)" (4/2016) 89-92 points Wine Spectator: "Enticing, with a tangy iron note to the fresh red currant and bitter cherry fruit flavors, followed by a lingering sanguine edge on the pleasantly dusty fin ...Read More »

2016 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chasse-Spleen has a very elegant bouquet with neatly integrated oak, the terroir really showing through here, hints of cedar and smoke emerging with time. The palate is fresh as a button on the entry. It is cut through with a superb line of acidity that engenders superb tension, the tannins firm but fine with a subtle marine influence towards the persistent finish. This is a fabulous Chasse-Spleen, the best I have ever tasted from the estate. It could end up at the top of by banded score. (NM)" (4/2017) 92-93 points James Suckling: "A solid and linear young wine with blackcurr ...Read More »

1985 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Chasse-Spleen is fabulously deep in color, with a full-intensity, scented bouquet of spicy new oak, rich curranty fruit, and plums. In the mouth, the wine is very concentrated, long, big framed, but impeccably balanced, with quite a finish. (From Robert Parker's Buying Guide)" (1/1995) Wine Spectator: "Very ripe and generous with lots of plum, earth, chocolate and anise flavors that are packed in together with soft, mouth-drying tannins needing a few years to resolve themselves." (5/1988) K&L Notes: Robert Parker ranked this estate's 1985 vintage as one of the "past glories,"... Read More »
