2017 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon with 3.5% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Lafite Rothschild is a little shy on the nose to begin, opening out to scents of crushed blackcurrants, black cherries and warm black plums with touches of yeast extract, charcuterie, cigar box and fertile loam plus a hint of iron ore. POW—the paradoxically ethereal, medium-bodied palate hits you with vibrant, exhilarating black fruit and previously latent floral layers, supported with fantastic freshness and super fine-grained, pixelated tannin ...Read More »

1996 Poujeaux, Moulis

Decanter: "Dense, tarry black fruit. Robust, mineral, still impressive vigour." (1/2006) Wine Spectator: "Aromas of tobacco, berries and cherry, with coffee bean undertones that follow through to a medium-bodied palate. Good tannins and a medium finish. (Web-2007)" K&L Notes: Poujeaux can definitely be considered one of the best and most consistent price-performers in Bordeaux. The legend of Poujeaux dates back to the 16th century, when it was started as an offshoot of Chateau Latour. Bordeaux historians retell the story of how Baron Elie de Rothschild mistook the 1953 Poujeaux for his own Lafite... Read More »

2009 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Talk about value, the 2009 Duhart-Milon is straight up sensational stuff. Made from 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, it gives up classic notes of blackcurrants, pencil shavings, saddle leather and smoked herbs, it’s full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with fine tannin, impeccable balance and a great, great finish. It’s a heavenly bottle of wine that will compete with the best out there. Buy this wine!" (7/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, it displays an inky/blue/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, fore ...Read More »

2004 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino

95 points Vinous: "Although still an infant, the 2004 Brunello di Montalcino has aged beautifully. Rose petal, bright red stone fruits and mint are some of the nuances that give the 2004 its lively, expressive personality. Silky tannins add considerable appeal today, but the 2004 also has more than enough depth to drink well for many years to come. (AG)" (10/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This remains one of my favorite vintages in Montalcino, and it was indeed an important breakout year for the appellation in general. By the time this wine was released, one-fourth of all Brunello di Montalcino was ...Read More »

2014 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrants and sweet tobacco. Wet earth to boot. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften. Try drinking in 2021." (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a structured wine that still has serious layers of ripe fruit and rich tannins. The black currant from the Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced by the jammy richness of the delicious Merlot. It’s an impressive wine that continues the progress of this estate, owned by Lafite-Rothschild. Drink from 2024. (RV)" (4/2017) 90 points Vinous: "The 2014 Duhart-Milon ...Read More »

2017 Carruades de Lafite, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The second wine of the estate is certainly no slouch in the vintage either. The 2017 Carruades de Lafite offers a similar perfume of cassis, scorched earth and lead pencil shavings, and is medium-bodied, seamless, and silky on the palate. As with the Grand Vin, the tannin quality is terrific, it’s perfectly balanced, and shines for its purity of fruit." (4/2018) 92-93 points James Suckling: "A bright Carruades with cedar and tobacco character. Medium to full body and medium chewy tannins. Very pretty center palate" (4/2018) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Carruades de Lafite is quite deep and fleshy at the out ...Read More »

2009 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

97 points Vinous: "The 2009 Pichon Lalande is ripe and decidedly flamboyant from the very first taste. Dense and voluptuous in the glass, with serious richness, the 2009 is also almost shockingly tannic. It won’t be ready to drink anytime soon, and yet, there is so much to look forward to. The warm, dry conditions yielded a dense, exotic Pichon Lalande, but there is serious structure beneath all of the fruit. (AG)" (10/2017) 96 points James Suckling: "What a great nose of blackberries, currants and spices. Hints of fresh herbs. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and lovely fruit. Such finesse and beau ...Read More »

2004 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe

95 points James Suckling: "This is another example of the wonderful 2004 vintage for Bordeaux. They are so delicious to drink now. The Cos is one of the best out there. And very reasonably priced at less than $150 a bottle. The charcuterie that hits you as soon as you open this Bordeaux is overwhelming: It's smoky, spicy and sexy. Minutes later you realize the complexity on offer, catching just a scent of the dark fruits hidden beneath, and before those, long and wonderful hints of balsamic vinegar. On the palate this shows elegance and finesse thanks to fabulous balance, extremel ...Read More »

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a great vintage from Lafite. The profile is rich in feel, with a seriously firm tannic structure. Solid, complex and with great authority, this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wine, is impressively dense in dark-fruit tones. It will age for many years. Drink from 2027, although that would almost be too soon. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (4/2018) 99 points James Suckling: "Lead and graphite are complemented by notes of blueberries and blackberries.

1970 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (High shoulder)

92 points Wine Spectator: "I drank a lot of this in Paris when I lived there in the mid-1980s. And I had a bottle this summer as well. Always outstanding. Shows intense aromas of prune and licorice. Full, velvety and long. This is a beautiful Bordeaux. At its peak. (2007) (Web only)" (1/2007) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is interesting that this was the next vintage tasted in the vertical tasting, and I am not surprised given the mediocre decade of performances by Lynch Bages. Only the 1975 stands out, and that wine seems only good when compared to modern day successes. The 1970 is an old style Lynch Bages w ...Read More »

1976 Grand-Puy-Ducasse, Pauillac

This chateau is often overlooked, as it has long been overshadowed by its sibling Grand-Puy-Lacoste. However, this Fifth Growth estate is very well-situated, with parcels adjacent to Lafite- and Mouton-Rothschild. With a typical blend of around 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, Grand-Puy-Ducasse produces a medium-bodied wine with excellent depth of fruit.

1999 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac
Bid on this bottle of 1999 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (95RP, 94WS, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Lafite Rothschild sports an engraved '1999' on the bottle along with an eclipse to mark that significant historical event of August, 1999. It is a quintessential offering from Lafite Rothschild. This prodigious wine is both elegant and intensely flavored, and almost diaphanous in its layers that unfold with no heaviness. An opaque ruby/purple color is accompanied by a complex bouquet of lead pencil, graphite, cedar, creme de cassis, toast, and vanilla. It is medium-bodied, with extravagant layers of richness yet little weight, and a finish that is all sweetness, ripeness, and harmony. This extraordinary Lafite increasingly appears to be a modern day clone of the majestic 1953. A mere one-third of the crop made it into the grand vin! Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030.

2003 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac
Bid on this bottle of 2003 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (95VN, 94WS, 93ST, 91RP). Vinous: "A heady, exotic wine, the 2003 Mouton Rothschild takes hold of all the senses. The ripeness and exuberance of the year comes through in spades as this dramatic, opulent wine shows off its radiant personality. The 2003 can be enjoyed now, but it could also use another few years for the tannins to soften. Still, the 2003 is pretty hard to resist today. This is an exceptional, deeply satisfying Mouton endowed with notable richness but also exceptional balance. Hints of toffee, torrefaction and dark spices are laced into the finish. In 2003 the blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, all brought in between a fairly narrow window of ten days between September 15 and 25.

1985 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind at the 1985 Bordeaux horizontal, the 1985 Château Lynch Bages was pitted against two other wines, both First Growths, and it more than held its own. In many ways it is a forerunner for the brilliant 1989 and 1990 that Jean-Michel crafted, though the 1985 has always been more elegant and comely in style. The nose is impressive after three decades with melted tar, a touch of peppermint and delineated black fruit that seem to gain intensity with each passing moment in the glass. Strangely those secondary notes of bay leaf and dried herbs ...Read More »

2006 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The character of this wine, a straight line of tannins and black currant fruit flavors, is the model of a classic Pauillac. It has all the structure as well as some austerity and severity at this stage in its development. But the fruit texture is rich enough, dried fruits and spice followed by licorice and bitter chocolate. Age for five years at least. *Cellar Selection*" (3/2009) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is no longer an insider’s secret that the investments made by the Rothschild family (of Lafite) in Duhart Milon are paying big dividends.

2007 Latour, Pauillac

The dryness of the tannins go right to the core, surrounded by chocolate, sweet fruit and dark berry flavors. The wine is well structured, big and bold, with plenty of firmness promising aging. (RV)" (4/2010) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Latour was late-released last year, and I reviewed it at that time. This bottle reaffirmed my remarks from a few months ago albeit here within the context of all the other First Growth. I noticed that it has slightly more intens ...Read More »

2016 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

It has the classicism of the very best vintages, and the pulse of electricity that runs through it is clear from the first moment you taste it. You are absolutely in Pauillac here, the epitome of what the left bank can deliver in terms of elegance and density: menthol edged tobacco, charcoal and cassis with both a subtlety and an intensity at once. It totally expands through the palate and pulls itself out, stretching out in front of you. It's a serious wine, but seamless. Concentrated, pure and fresh, every ...Read More »

(4/2017) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made by the Lafite-Rothschild team, this is a powerfully dense wine. It has intense botrytis and fine acidity, as well as sumptuous ripe marmalade and apricot flavors. This is certainly for long-term aging. (RV)" (4/2017) 93-96 points Vinous: "The 2016 Rieussec is gorgeous.

It has a slightly lower pH than the 2009 (3.7 versus the 2009's 3.8), and even higher alcohol than the 2009 (14.6%). The wine is ethereal. From its dense purple color to its incredibly subtle but striking aromatics that build incrementally, offering up a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas ranging from charcoal and camphor to black currant and blueberry liqueur and s ...Read More »

It has always been an outstanding wine for the vintage - complex, rich, savory, and the quintessentially elegant Bordeaux. This beauty continues to reveal the fragrance and finesse that one expects from Lafite-Rothschild but so rarely finds.
