2006 Auguste Clape Cornas Back In Stock!
2006 Auguste Clape Cornas

94 points Wine Spectator: "Rock-solid, with a terrifically built core of black Mission fig, macerated currant and warm fig paste supported by iron-clad tannins. The background is filled with iron, tar and espresso, but this stays racy and pure, despite the dark profile. Just a step behind the 2005, with superb grip and density. Best from 2011 through 2021. (JM, Web-2010)" 93 points James Suckling: "Delicious. Shows aromas of spices, meat and lead pencil. Black fruits too. Refined and fruity, almost shy. Flavors of earth, spice, fruit, and light barnyard. Yet it remains focused and defined." (8/2013) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Clape’s 200 ...Read More »

1999 Barde Haut, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The outstanding 1999 Barde Haut is elegant, complex, savory, and hedonistic. A dark ruby/purple color is followed by copious quantities of black fruits intermixed with toasty oak and licorice. It is sweet and expansive, with low acidity, medium body, and a lush finish. Drink it over the next 10 years. Seductive stuff!" (4/2002) Wine Spectator: "Earthy and decadent on the nose, even Porty, with violet and berries. Full-bodied, featuring lots of juicy fruit, medium tannins and a fruity finish. (Web Only-2010)"

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A great sleeper of the vintage, this fully mature wine, made by Helene Garcin, has loads of deep raspberry and black cherry fruit with hints of licorice, toasty oak, and spice box. It is plush, succulent, and hedonistic, yet at the same time complex. I loved their 1998, and this wine seems to have turned out just as well. It has reached full maturity, where it should stay for at least a 10 to 15-year period. (RP)" (6/2010) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby-red.

93 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (4/2002) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 exhibits flamboyant, obvious new oak, but unlike other years, there is more concentration, power, and depth behind the vanillin/pain grille notes. Full-bodied, dense, and chewy, with copious peppery, herb-tinged, red currant, black currant, and blackberry fruit, this is a lush, generously-endowed offering with a lightly tannic finish.

Fleshy, savory, and full-bodied, it has shed much of its tannin, but still possesses abundant structure. It is an intense, modern-styled, mouthfilling, sumptuous, attention-getting wine to drink over the next decade.

2000 Beaulieu Comtes de Tastes, Bordeaux Supérieur

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful example of what Bordeaux can do at the lower end, but so rarely does, this blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Made from low yields, it reveals a dark ruby/purple color, excellent fruit, sweet cassis, and a classy, nearly classified growth character. (RP)" (2/2002)

1990 Beausejour (Duffau-Lagarrosse), St-Emilion (bin soiled label)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most singular Bordeaux I have ever tasted, it verges on being port-like, but it pulls back because of the extraordinary minerality and laser-like focus. The wine is massively concentrated, still black/purple-hued to the rim, and offers a nose of incense, blackberries, blueberry liqueur, acacia flowers, and forest floor. It reveals low acidity and high tannins, which are largely concealed by the sheer concentration and lavish glycerin the wine possesses. Aging at a glacial pace, it is approachable, but it will not hit its peak until 2020; it sh ...Read More »

2001 Beausejour-Duffau, St-Emilion

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine of considerable nobility and breed, the 2001 Beausejour Duffau possesses a classic perfume of crushed stones and blueberries. This delicate, elegant offering is clearly a wine of terroir. Its subtle nature, pure, stylish flavors, and striking aromatics make it easy to dismiss in a blind peer group tasting, but do not make that mistake. There is a lot going on here, and the wine’s personality as well as complexity are stunning. It should hit its prime in 1-3 years, and drink well for 12-15." (6/2204)

This isn't a wine of finesse but as Chablis goes, this is a bruiser of superb intensity that embodies the phrase "jus de pierre" (rock juice)."

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made by Jean-Paul Versino and the top wine of the estate, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Felix is a fantastic effort in the vintage. Smelling like a street market in the south of France with its cured meats, herbes de Provence, saddle leather, earth and sweet core of fruit, it is medium to full-bodied, balanced, textured and has notable structure that emerges with time in the glass. In short, it’s a beautifully made, traditional Chateauneuf du Pape to enjoy over the coming decade. (JD)" (2/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Very solid.

Feminine with low acidity. Nice cassis-infused finish. On the palate this does not have the under-ripeness that mars many Left Bank wines. This is a commendable 1997.

1999 Brane Cantenac, Margaux (Previously $100)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the chateau with Henri Lurton. This has a very intense nose: much more opulent and ravishing than you would expect from a ’99. There is a strange aroma, sort of, sage and onion inflecting the ripe red-berried fruits but it clears up to offer more orthodox scents of saddle-leather and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied, quite a gutsy Margaux, sinewy although perhaps lacking a bit of finesse towards the linear finish.

Soft tannin, full-bodied opulence and beautifully textured, lush richness, make for a brilliant wine from this large, 180-acre vineyard.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chauvin's 1995 is not dissimilar from the 1994. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a sweet...jammy nose of black fruits, oak, and spice, this (is a) lush, attractively-textured, plump St.-Emilion. (RP)" (10/1997) K&L Notes: Robert Parker… 'Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a sweet, nearly over-ripe, jammy nose of black fruits, oak, and spice, this lush, attractively-textured, plump St.-Emilion will need to be drunk over the next 6-10 years because of its extremely low acidity.'

2000 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2000 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming out of a relatively dormant state, this 2000 is a spectacular Cheval Blanc. Of recent vintages, I think only the 2009 can give it a run for its money. A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc, the wine has a sweet nose of menthol, melted licorice, boysenberry, blueberry, and cassis. A broad wine with compelling purity, a layered texture, and sweet tannin, with hints of coffee and earth in the background, this is by far the best Cheval Blanc since 1990 and before 2009. It is a legend in the making and can actually be drunk now, as the tannins h ...Read More »

1999 Cheval Blanc, St-Émilion Top Pick!
1999 Cheval Blanc, St-Émilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The complex, explosively fragrant 1999 Cheval Blanc is a blend of 59% Merlot and 41% Cabernet Franc. It is already showing well, which is a good sign for a wine that traditionally is reserved early in life, but puts on weight and richness in the bottle. Stylistically, this wine is probably cut from the same mold as vintages such as 1985, 1966, and 1962. The color is a dense ruby with purple nuances. Once past the blockbuster bouquet of menthol, leather, black fruits, licorice, and mocha, the wine reveals medium body, extraordinary elegance, purity, and s ...Read More »

2009 Château Beaucastel Roussanne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes Blanc

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes (Roussanne) is a staggering wine of extraordinary complexity and richness. Aromas of rose petals, exotic fruits such as mango and nectarine intermixed with peach marmalade, honeysuckle and crushed pineapple emerge from this full-bodied white along with good acidity and lavish amounts of fruit and glycerin. It offers a nearly out of body wine tasting experience. (RP)" (10/2011) 95 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* Dense and rich, with creamed yellow apple, sweetened butter, glazed pear and Cavaillon melon notes all woven seamles ...Read More »

2006 Château d'Arsac "The Winemakers' Collection: Denis Dubourdieu Cuvée No. 2" Haut-Medoc

Jancis Robinson: "Denis Dubourdieu is another of Bordeaux's high-profile wine consultants, even if he has spread his wings geographically more markedly after this wine was made rather than before. His own base is in Graves and Sauternes. Less intense crimson than the No 1 from Michel Rolland. Just mid crimson with some evolution at the rim. Very attractively aromatic, in rather the same way that fine red Graves is - oddly enough! (Perhaps I ought to have been made to taste these wines blind...) Racy and lifted. Rather flattering - not in a sweet, sweet way but in a vivaci ...Read More »
