2005 Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru "Toussaints"

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Deep ruby. A nicely fresh and expressive nose of just crushed red pinot fruit and warm earth aromas trimmed in just a bit of wood dissolves into the supple, sweet and mouth coating flavors supported by firm but fine tannins and outstanding finishing complexity. An impressive effort and definitely worth a look." (4/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Boxed in on the hillside by much larger and better-known Greves, Bressandes and Cent Vignes, the 2005 Beaune Toussaints smells of blackberry, cassis and smoked meat. Substantial and with fine-grained tannins, it really stains the palate wit ...Read More »

1985 Angélus, St-Emilion

89 points Wine Spectator: "Very concentrated, with plum and cassis character and a hint of nuts. It's full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and loads of coffee and fruit on the finish. Better after 1996." (10/1994) Jancis Robinson: "De Boüard’s first vintage, and already aged on the lees. Sweet and rather gorgeous and with some freshness. Kerpow! There is a bit of decay but also liquorice." (11/2011)

2003 Angélus, St-Emilion

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I had this wine from my cellar, as well as at a tasting in Zurich in February of 2015. It is one of the handful of 2003s I bought from the Right Bank of Bordeaux in this vintage. Angelus really nailed the vintage, and has produced a fully mature wine that’s truly strutting its stuff. Dense, bluish/purple, it offers gorgeous notes of espresso roast, blackberry and blueberry liqueur, acacia flowers and a touch of chocolate. It is full-bodied, opulent and seems close to full maturity, as it is evolving quickly. The wine is full-bodied, rich and should be dr ...Read More »

1990 Angélus, St-Emilion (soiled label)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, this is clearly the greatest Angelus until the 2000, 2003 and then the perfect 2005. Beautiful, sweet plum, blackberry and blueberry fruit soar from the glass of this opaque, purple wine that still hasn’t lost much in color. Deep, opulent, voluptuously textured, full-bodied and multidimensional, this is a stunner and just now approaching its plateau of full maturity, where it should stay for at least another 20 years. (RP)" (8/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic beauty. Dark ruby-red color. Enticing aromas of cinnamon, raspberry, p ...Read More »

2000 Beaulieu Comtes de Tastes, Bordeaux Supérieur (Previously $45)

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)

Shows tar and vanilla on the finish. Best after 2013." (3/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An impressive effort from this Haut-Medoc property, the 2005 Belgrave possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of damp earth, cedar, herbs, black cherries, and currants, good acidity, moderately high tannin, an admirable, layered texture, and fine purity and overall balance."

2005 Bellevue, St-Emilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The first bottle of 2005 Bellevue that I tasted had a maderized, oxidized nose that was off-putting. This note is from a second bottle. This second bottle showed absolutely no trace of oxidation, but did offer plenty of crushed, chalky minerality, notes of plum, blueberry, black raspberry and cherry fruit, a dense purple color, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and fabulous structure, purity and length. It should drink well for at least another 20+ years. (RP)" (6/2015) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Sweet cherry dominates the nose.

(3/2003) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The impressive 2000 is undoubtedly a sleeper of the vintage.

2012 Bouchard Père & Fils Beaune Blanc 1er Cru "Clos St. Landry"

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Beaune Clos Saint Landry sees 10 to 12 months in barrel of which 10% are new. It has more vigor and complexity than the Beaune du Chateau Blanc, with smoke and walnut lining the aromatics. The palate has a touch of peach and apricot on the entry.

2005 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As usual, the 2005 Branaire-Ducru is one of the more distinctive wines of St.-Julien. Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux has turned out another classic. While not as opulent or fleshy as the 2003, and it remains to be seen if it will eclipse the 2000, the 2005 is a big, structured, intensely rich effort with raspberry, blueberry, and spring flower garden characteristics, stunning purity, full-bodied power, and good underlying acidity as well as harmony. The hard tannins suggest 8-9 years of cellaring will be beneficial; it should last for three decades. Antici ...Read More »

Big and yummy now, but give this three or four years." (3/2011) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of currant, smoke and coffee.

It has impressive lift on the nose: blackberry, raspberry and minerals, a bouquet that is captivating. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a core of black fruit, spice and licorice with a lovely peacock's tail on the finish.

1989 Cadet-Piola, St-Emilion (6L)

According to Robert Parker: "The 1989 is an impressive wine with a thick black/ruby color. The nose is closed, but on the palate, the wine is an overwhelmingly muscular, hard, tough-textured, tannic behemoth that needs at least 7- 10 years of cellaring. The muscular, backward style is typical of Cadet-Piola. Anticipated maturity: 1996-2010." (02/93)

1982 Camensac, Haut-Médoc

Over 50 years ago, Camensac was purchased by the Forner brothers, who also happened to own Marques de Caceres in Rioja. They set about to replant the majority of the existing vineyards, with a greater share being Cabernet Sauvignon over Merlot. They also renovated the winemaking and storage facilities and called upon famed professor, Emile Peynaud, to consult and lift the chateau to a new level.
