90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is made from property owned by the Bernard family of Domaine de Chevalier in Pessac-Léognan.

Ch. L’Avocat is from the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation. I met Nicola Allison at a small conference of Women from Bordeaux and Napa Valley in Napa earlier.

I followed up by visiting the estate almost 8 weeks later and was shown the gravely, plateau vineyards by her husband Sean who manages the vines. The vineyards were purchased by the Allisons in 2002; the fruit was pr... Read More »

2015 Potensac, Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "An austere style, offering a frame of warm stone around the core of currant and bitter cherry flavors, with tangy minerality through the finish. Perhaps not as broad as some of its peers, but with good cut, drive and focus. (JM, Web-2016)" 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is some sense of structure here, although the dominant character is a vivid fruitiness. This wine has crisp, black currant acidity and a fascinating burst of orange brightness. Consider short-term aging. (RV)" (4/2016) 90-91 points James Suckling: "Lots of mineral and stone aromas and flavors with blackberry and blueberry aromas. Full and very fi ...Read More »

2014 Capbern, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Capbern, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* Pure and direct, with a textbook beam of cassis and bitter cherry notes, laced with lilac and iron hints. The racy, unencumbered finish lets the mineral edge shine. Lots of improvement here recently. This may be the best value play in the vintage." (4/2015) 90-92 points Vinous: "A delicious, mouth filling St. Estèphe, the 2014 Capbern captures the personality of the year in the northern Médoc in spades. Hints of smoke, tobacco, licorice, mocha, and earthiness wrap around a core of dark fruit in an exuberant wine loaded with pure textural richness. The 2014 fini ...Read More »

2015 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "Blackberry and black licorice aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy tannins and bright acidity. Impressive concentration for the vintage. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 4% petit verdot and 1% cabernet franc." (3/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Lanessan has quite a punchy, fruit-driven bouquet with well-integrated oak, a Lanessan with more sense of purpose than I have found in recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine blackberry and raspberry fruit, fine tannin, leading to a smooth and harmonious finish, which lingers nicely in the mouth. You know, this is ...Read More »

2014 Belle Coline, Côtes de Blaye (Pre-Arrival)

88-91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Belle Coline is rich, boisterous and super-expressive. Inky black fruit, smoke, tobacco, licorice and incense are laced together in the glass. The style is racy, supple and fruit-forward, all of which add to the wine's early appeal. Even with all of its obvious richness, the 2014 finishes with terrific energy and minerality. The blend is 91% Merlot and 9% Malbec. (AG)" (4/2015) 89-90 points James Suckling: "Another red with pretty concentration and depth of fruit. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Best ever from here?" (3/2015) Wine Spectator: "Fresh, with damson plum and sanguine note ...Read More »

2014 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

89-91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Lanessan is wonderfully silky and nuanced in the glass. Bright red stone fruits, cranberry, blood orange, mint, spices and crushed flowers add nuance in a mid-weight, polished wine that should drink beautifully over the near and medium term. (AG)" (4/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Dark crimson. Luscious palate entry and then some succulent fruit on the palate and the freshness is (just) not excessive. Just very slight greenness on the finish." (3/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Lanessan 2014 has an unusually high-toned bouquet with blackberry and iodine aromas, Margaux-like in style, wit ...Read More »

2012 Bellegrave, Pauillac

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Bellegrave has an intriguing, rather saline/brine scented bouquet with expressive Cabernet Franc. It takes a little time to find its delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grippy tannins. The Cabernet Franc component forms its conspicuous back bone - a Pomerol that is classic and “cool” in style. Nicely focused and delineated on the finish with well-integrated oak, don’t be surprised to find this blooming in several years. (NM)" (3/2013) James Suckling: "Some raspberry and currant character with citrus undertones. Medium to full body, firm tannin ...Read More »
