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 »

1959 Angélus, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Angelus has always been a St. Emilion with great popular appeal. With a large production, much of it exported, a lovely label, and a charming, supple style of wine, Angelus has been able to build a strong following among enthusiast of the wine of St. Emilion." K&L Notes: With an untraditional cépage, and a reputation that - in recent years - has placed it at a quality level above its already enviable Premier Grand Cru Classé status, L'Angelus is now on fire.

95 points Wine Spectator: "Wow. What a reserved, yet seductive nose of milk chocolate, raspberry and mineral aromas that go on and on Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a mineral, berry, blackberry and violet flavor. This is polished and racy on the palate. So young still. Why wait? But serious and classic.

1996 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (1.5L) Back In Stock!
1996 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (1.5L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The lavishly-oaked, hedonistically-styled 1996 exhibits a dark plum/purple color. The nose offers up sweet jammy fruit (primarily black currants and cherries) intermixed with toasty new oak. Medium-bodied, with excellent, nearly outstanding richness, a nicely-layered mid-palate, and sweet tannin in the long finish, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age, and should last for 15+ years." (4/1999) Wine Spectator: "An extremely well-done '96. Lovely combination of crushed berries and exotic spices. Medium-bodied, with a pretty balance of fruit and tannins." (1/1999)

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 »

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)."

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.

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.

A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc, the wine has a sweet nose of menthol, melted licorice, boysenberry, blueberry, and cassis.

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 »

2005 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A classic example of the vintage, the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage À Jacques Perrin is made from 60% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache, and the rest Counoise and Syrah. Inky colored, it offers an iron, beef-blood and gamey aromatic profile to go with gorgeous purity and focus on the palate. Reminding me of the 2010, yet even more firm and focused, this full-bodied effort will need another 7-8 years to start to show maturity, and will have upward of 40-50 years of overall longevity. 97+ (JD)" (2/2015) 97 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque purple. An explosive, room-filling bouquet of ripe rasp ...Read More »

2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beaucastel has been on a terrific qualitative roll over the last four vintages, and the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape (which Francois Perrin feels is similar to the 1990, although I don’t see that as of yet) is a 15,000-case blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the balance split among the other permitted varietals of the appellation. This inky/ruby/purple-colored cuvee offers a classic Beaucastel bouquet of new saddle leather, cigar smoke, roasted herbs, black truffles, underbrush, and blackberry as well as cherry fruit. It is a ...Read More »

1998 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
1998 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A big, rich wine with huge amounts of fruit oozing out of the glass. Great concentration and intensity, with licorice flavors from the Mourvèdre, finishing with chewy tannins." (12/2001) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Very youthful, with a juicy blast of red plum and fig fruit flavors on a racy frame, this also has plenty of spice, tar, plum cake and mineral in reserve, as the finish shows more structure and slowly darkens with time in the glass. Only just starting to hit its stride. (JM)" (9/2007) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The atypically Grenache-dominated 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape is fully mature and gives up ton ...Read More »

2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beaucastel’s 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape has turned out even better out of bottle than I predicted. An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious nose of blue and black fruits, truffles, pen ink, licorice, and meat juices as well as glorious levels of acidity and sweet tannin, buttressing the fruit’s fabulous freshness and vibrancy. This full-bodied effort still displays considerable tannin, no doubt because of the relatively high Mourvedre content. It should resolve its tannins in 2-4 years, and last for 25 or more. (RP)" (10/2009) 96 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* This ...Read More »

1989 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 is inkier/purple in color than the 1990, with an extraordinarily sweet, rich personality offering up notes of smoke, melted licorice, black cherries, Asian spices, and cassis. Full-bodied and concentrated, it is one of the most powerful as well as highly extracted Beaucastels I have ever tasted. It requires another 3-4 years to reach its plateau of maturity, where it should remain for at least two decades. (RP)" (1/2003) 97 points Wine Spectator: "*1991 Wine of the Year, Cellar Selection* Perhaps the greatest Beaucastel ever produced. Has the class and structure of a great ...Read More »

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A big, rich wine with huge amounts of fruit oozing out of the glass. Great concentration and intensity, with licorice flavors from the Mourvèdre, finishing with chewy tannins. A great year for this wine, which should age well for 15 to 20 years." (12/2001) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Very youthful, with a juicy blast of red plum and fig fruit flavors on a racy frame, this also has plenty of spice, tar, plum cake and mineral in reserve, as the finish shows more structure and slowly darkens with time in the glass.
