2009 Albert Mann Gewürztraminer Alsace

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Overtly sweet even at 14% alcohol, the Mann 2009 Gewurztraminer incorporates much of this year’s crop from the Altenbourg. Celery seed, litchi, rose petal, and saline, marine breeze in the nose lead to a full, subtly creamy, palpably low-acid, but fortunately persistently juicy palate, finishing somewhat simple and obviously sweet. Jacky Barthelme insists "this is too good for a generic," and I sympathize in terms of his willingness to declassify cru material, but in terms of the wine’s performance, it seems to me to have been classed correctly. Drink it ...Read More »

2001 Angélus, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A brilliant performance by Hubert de Bouard, the 2001 Angelus is a more restrained and deliniated version of the 2000...Its deep purple color is followed by a rich nose of creosote, charcoal, blackberries, plums, cassis and espresso roast. Elegant, medium bodied and rich, with a measured ripeness and moderate structure in the pure, nicely proportioned finish...beautifully put together. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017." (6/2004)92 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of earth, spice and new wood with fruit. Full-bodied and chewy with plenty of fruit and vanilla. Rich and exciting. ...Read More »

2002 Angélus, St-Emilion

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A successful offering for the vintage, the 2002 exhibits a deep ruby/purple/plum color as well as a sweet, forward style with black fruits intermixed with espresso roast, lavender, and Provencal herbs. Medium to full-bodied, lush, and round, with fine purity, ripeness, and surprising body and sweetness for a right bank 2002, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years." (4/2005)91 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive dark color for the vintage, with lots of grapey vanilla with black licorice aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins. Wild finish.

2000 Angélus, St-Emilion

97 points Wine Spectator: "**Collectibles** Out of this world. Incredible aromas of crushed blackberries and cherries, with wet earth, mineral and mint. Full-bodied, with fantastically refined, silky tannins and a long, long finish. Terrific. Greatest Angelus I have ever tasted. Best after 2010." (3/2003)96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What can you say about Hubert de Bouard and Angelus? Each year they seem to turn out one great wine after another, and the 2000 showed its merit in two different tastings. A wine of great intensity, bluish/black, with a big, sweet kiss of graphite, crushed rocks, blueberry, spring ...Read More »

2001 Ausone, St-Emilion

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Ausone has put on even more weight than I anticipated. The 'wine of the vintage,' this inky/purple-colored 2001 boasts a provocative, floral perfume of crushed stones, raspberries, blackberries, creme de cassis, licorice, and smoke. What makes it so sensational are the layers of flavor and nuances that unfold as the wine sits in the glass as well as on the palate. This is an extraordinarily intense effort, but remarkably elegant and well-balanced. It ideally needs another decade of cellaring; it should last for 4-5 decades! Alain Vauthier is a p ...Read More »

2002 Ausone, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In many respects, the 2002 may be even more impressive than the 2003. A far more challenging vintage to get everything right, and especially in St.-Emilion, where many disappointments have been produced, this is one of the wines of the vintage and (along with Pavie) among the finest wines from the Right Bank. It possesses a deep purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of creme de cassis, blackberries, wet stones, and wonderfully perfumed floral notes. When the wine hits the palate, it exhibits impressive purity, medium to full body, a multi-layered textu ...Read More »

1998 Ausone, St-Emilion (Previously $600)

97 points James Suckling: "I’m still looking forward to tasting the great Château Ausone of Saint-Émilion later this week, but in the meantime I’m thinking back to this great 1998 I had this summer. In fact, it looks like 2014 was the antithesis of 1998, a year that saw the Right Bank and the early-ripening-merlot-dominated blends triumph over the Left Bank; as I’ve just written, I believe 2014 is showing much better for cabernet sauvignon and the Right Bank. Even so, this was tight and powerful with hints of cream and blueberries. It was full and pretty with firm tannins. On the ...Read More »

2005 Balestard La Tonnelle, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2005 Balestard La Tonnelle, St-Emilion

Jancis Robinson: "Fine perfume, becoming more meaty. Really moreish, dry and quite firm. Perhaps a little more structure than fruit." (11/2009) Wine & Spirits: "The aroma is complex and layered with rich cherries and smoky oak tones. This is a smooth-textured, traditional St-Emilion. A bit of bottling sulfur will dissipate as the wine ages, and the tannins will soften up for a steak." (10/2008) Wine Spectator: "Vanilla, licorice and violet aromas follow through to a medium-to-full body, with silky tannins and a medium finish. (Web-2008)" K&L Notes: Wow!

2000 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

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." (6/2011)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby-red.

1986 Batailley, Pauillac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1986's rating may turn out to be conservative as this wine tends to show better after 10-12 years in the bottle than it does when young. Made from 70 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 20 percent Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the 1986 is full bodied, deep ruby/purple in color, but extremely hard and tannic. However, it appears to have the depth and concentration of fruit necessary to outlast the tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015."

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.

(4/2003) Wine Spectator: "Plenty of blackberry and licorice character. Medium- to full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Mouthpuckering. Big Beaumont. Best after 2007."

2003 Beausejour Becot, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker: "From a 41-acre vineyard situated on St.-Emilion’s limestone plateau, Beau-Sejour-Becot’s blend can vary, but it is approximately 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. Production can be as low as 4,000+ cases (in a tiny vintage such as 2003), or as high as 7,000+ cases (in an abundant year such as 2004). The 2003, which reminds me of a 1990 Right Bank Bordeaux, tips the scales at 13.5% alcohol. Its dark plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet nose of creosote, scorched earth, black cherries, currants, a... Read More »

2010 Beck-Hartweg "Cuvée de L 'Ours" Pinot Gris Alsace

Florian Beck-Hartweg, along with parents Michel and Yvette, aim to make their great wines starting in the vineyard. Fermentation and aging is completed only in old oak casks that don't interfere in any way with the taste of the wine--some casks are 100 years old or so!. Fermentation is with natural yeasts, and there's no other addition to the wine other than SO2, in small quantity, of course. This newly imported producer follows the organic chart: using no chemical products in the vineyards and absolutely no fertilization (chemical or organic) because Fl... Read More »

A collaboration between Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt, this medium to full-bodied, pure blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc reveals aromas reminiscent of a liqueur of crushed rocks, black currants, and raspberries.

2003 Bellevue-Mondotte, St-Emilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even in a vintage such as 2003 there are wines that are youthful, unevolved and still in need of bottle age. The 2003 Bellevue Mondotte is one of those wines. From a tiny (5 acres) estate owned by Gerard Perse, this blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits youthful aromas of blue and black fruits, chalk dust, lead pencil shavings and Christmas fruitcake. Full, ripe and moderately tannic, it requires another 3-5 years of bottle age and could turn out to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage, lasting another 25-3 ...Read More »

2005 Bernadotte, Haut-Médoc

Ultimately conveys a rather austere impression, with the finish showing a tart quality and firm tannic spine." (6/2006) Wine Spectator: "Tea leaf aromas, with raspberry and blackberry, lead to a medium-to-full body, with soft, silky tannins and a pretty aftertaste. Best after 2008.

A notably ripe, spicy and intensely earthy nose of mostly black pinot fruit and plum aromas leads to big-bodied and exceptionally rich, intense and muscular flavors that brim with an abundance of dry extract on the gorgeously long, complex and still very firm finish. It's clear that this is still very youthful and while it can be drunk with pleasure there is without question still plenty of upside development potential present.

Finishes very long and subtle, with the tannins coming late. Today, this blend is better than either component on its own.

Beautifully sweet, slightly herbaceous black currant, licorice, and earthy notes emerge from this nearly opaque, dark ruby/purple-tinged 1982. Compared to the more elegant, feminine-styled wine often produced here, it is a beast. Dense, thick, rich, concentrated, and impressive, it can be drunk now and over the next two decades.

Juicy, minerally and penetrating but tightly coiled and on the lean side, in need of long barrel aging. This seems a bit less ripe than Bouchard's best domain offerings (like the Charmes, this is purchased wine), as well as more heavily extracted, even brutal. Finishes with a note of licorice and some tough tannins." (3/2007) Jancis Robinson: "CS Smoky spice, dark fruit. Very tight and tannins very fine and dry.
