2012 de Pitray, Castillon Top Pick!
2012 de Pitray, Castillon

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* A selection from the best grapes and parcels, this is a dense, firm wine with both great tannins and dark fruits. Acidity gives a lift to the dry core of the wine and brings out the black currant fruits. Wood aging is still showing, so the wine needs time. (RV)" (11/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the old-time favorites and value picks in The Wine Advocate, this wine, from a gorgeous château in the Castillon, sports a completely new label. Black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, and some underbrush and earth are present in this supple-textured, medium-bodied, ...Read More »

2004 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

91 points Wine Spectator: "A gorgeous nose of ripe raspberry, with hints of vanilla and blackberry. Intense yet subtle. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit, yet refined and layered with silky tannins. Long and caressing. Gets better and better. I like it more than the 2003 or the 2000. (JS)" (3/2007) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A dark ruby/purple hue is accompanied by sweet aromas of black cherries, crushed rocks, flowers, and subtle oak, moderate tannin, excellent ripeness, and a long finish. This charming, medium to full-bodied St.-Emilion offers plenty of punch and depth. If additional complexity emerges, it wi ...Read More »

2012 Le Thil, Pessac-Léognan

90-91 points James Suckling: "This shows a lovely core of fruits with chocolate and berry. Full body, with a tender tannin structure. First red vintage from here for new owners who also own Smith-Haut-Lafitte. 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon." (4/2013) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby/plum/purple 2012 exhibits notes of graphite, cedar wood, roasted herbs and sweet red and black currants. This medium-bodied, elegant yet rich wine should drink well for a decade or more. This 22-acre property was recently acquired by the owners of Smith Haut Lafitte, Daniel and Florence Cathiard.

2013 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolute epic wine is the 2013 Merlot, a blend of 95% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. It is no wimpy wine either, with the natural alcohol slightly north of 15%. A gorgeous nose including roasted espresso, melted black chocolate, blackberry, plum and cassis offers an exceptional set of aromatics. The wine has beautiful ripeness, headiness and a long finish of close to 45+ seconds. This is a beauty of terrific purity, texture and personality. Few California Merlots will ever be capable of equaling this. Drink it over the next 2 ...Read More »

2012 Marsau, Côtes de Bordeaux

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This special selection, tight-cropped from 30 acres of 100% Merlot, is ripe and rich. This is a smoky and fruity wine, in barrel for 14 months. It has ripe black fruits and rich, dense structure. Spice and toast balance the fruit, giving an impressive sense of generosity. Drink from 2017. (RV)" (12/2014) 90 points James Suckling: "A wine displaying raspberries, violets, cacao and creamy notes. This is a full-bodied red with round tannins, crisp acidity and a long, fresh finish."

2015 D'Arce, Côtes de Castillon

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château d'Arce is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and it was picked earlier than usual, at the end of September, in order to preserve the Merlot aromas. No SO2 was used apart from two grams just after the malolactic, using CO2 to preserve the wine. It has a plush cranberry, black cherry and licorice scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, caressing in the mouth, hints of cedar and bay leaf, gentle and elegant with a sustained, light grip on the finish. This is very fine and elegant.

2012 Roc de Cambes, Côtes de Bourg (Previously $50)

93 points Vinous: "A dark, imposing wine, the 2012 Roc des Cambes is distinctly dark and brooding. Black cherries, smoke, licorice, tar and dark spices fleshed [?]. Vertical in style and quite structured, the 2012 could use another few years in bottle to fully come together, which will also help the chewy tannins to integrate a bit more fully.

A gorgeous blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon made by the Decoster family, the 2005 provides more evidence that this property is fully exploiting its tremendous potential. A few years away from reaching its plateau of maturity, its stunning nose of black cherry liqueur, cassis, licorice, earth and spice is followed by a full-bodied, concentrated and pure wine.

2015 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "This is the greatest red ever produced here, even better than the great wines of the 1950s and 1960s. Full body yet tight and reserved. Superbly refined tannins. Yet rich and flamboyant. Fruity yet salty and minerally. Electric finish. Stone and chalk undertones. A wonder of a young wine." (3/2016) 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Canon is going to be a benchmark for this historic estate. A blend of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, it was cropped at 42 hl/ha between 14-25 September and 30 September until 2 October respectively.

2012 Clinet, Pomerol

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With a dense purple color and gorgeous levels of fruit, especially black raspberry and blackcurrant, this full-bodied, opulent style of wine is another great success for Clinet, a château that has been on top of its game for the last decade. This is stunning stuff, and whatever new oak has been used -- and there is plenty -- it is totally disguised by the luxurious and extravagant fruit level. This full-bodied, opulent Pomerol should drink well for 15 or more years.

2012 L'Ecole No. 41 Columbia Valley Merlot

Aromas of dried herbs, pencil lead, toasty spice and blue and red fruit lead to sweet, rich and appealing flavors. There's intensity but also a good sense of acid and chalky tannic structure backing things up, along with undeniable deliciousness.

A dark, sumptuous Saint-Emilion, the 2012 possesses gorgeous richness to match its sensual personality. Black cherry, smoke, plum and spices are some of the many notes that emerge from this beautifully layered, inviting wine. The 2012 is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Hubert de Bouard is the consulting winemaker.

The dried citrus fruit really comes through here."

Dense plum, black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit jump from the glass of this full-bodied, terrific Fronsac, which is one of the appellation’s stars of the vintage. Long, rich, young, and capable of lasting another 15-20 years, this is one of the candidates for Wine of the Vintage in Fronsac. This wine actually needs another several years of bottle age.

2014 Tour St-Christophe, St. Emilion (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is a stunning barrel sample with oyster shells, blackberries, chalk, blueberries. Full body, great density of fruit and power. Best yet?" (3/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Tour Saint Christophe 2014 has a very pure bouquet. There is some new oak to be subsumed, but there is plenty of fruit to support it. The palate is ripe and sensual on the entry with supple tannin, plush black cherry and blackberry fruit with a generous, modern-style opening with commendable length. This could turn out to be one of Saint Emilion's classier offerings in 2014. (NM)" (4/2015) 91 points Vinous: "The 201 ...Read More »

2013 Lafleur-Gazin, Pomerol

88-90 points Vinous: "Crushed flowers, sweet red berries and spices are some of the notes that emerge from the 2013 Lafleur-Gazin. A soft, graceful wine, the 2013 possesses good overall balance, but only modest depth, something that is quite evident on the finish, where the drying tannins are pronounced. (AG)" (4/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Satisfyingly complete on the nose -- ripe black fruit, leather, cedar and bitter chocolate. A good brush of tannin on the finish, all in balance. Very nicely done. 17/20 points. Drink 2017 to 2027." (4/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby-red. Coffee, dark plum and strawberry on the s ...Read More »

2013 Clinet, Pomerol

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. A rich and structured wine, this combines both the ripeness of mature Merlot and a solid, dry texture. It’s full, with a good future. (RV)" (4/2014) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Clinet is terrific. Dark red and blue fruits, new leather, violets, menthol and sweet spices meld together in a wine of rare distinction for the year. This is one of the more pliant, expressive 2013s readers will come across. The finish is long, silky and polished. The oak needs time to fully integrated, but I don't think that is going to be a problem. This is a terrific showing. (AG) ...Read More »

2009 Canon, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2009 Canon, St-Emilion

96 points James Suckling: "Aromas of nuts, spices, chocolate powder, then changes to fruits and flowers. Fascinating. Full body, with silky tannins and a wonderful intensity and super polished tannins with a long, long finish. Super refined. Best Canon in years. Try in 2016." (2/2012) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Hugely dense, foursquare wine with great fruit and the purest tannins. Chocolate and coffee predominate at the same time as sweet tannins and acidity. A wine that combines charm with great power. (RV)" (2/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest Canon since the 1982, the 2009 (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) reveals a dense ...Read More »

2000 Petit Village, Pomerol

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Smoky, earthy notes intermixed with espresso roast, chocolate, plums, and black currants jump from the glass of this dark plum/ruby colored wine. Chewy and fleshy, with sweet fruit, ripe tannin, medium to full body, and a sexy mouthfeel, it should be enjoyed between 2005-2016. (RP)" (4/2003) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red-ruby. Aromas of blackberry, minerals, coffee and spices; at once cool and liqueur-like. Lush, chewy, sweet and deep, with vibrant flavors of black cherry and chocolate. Finishes with firm tannins and very good length and grip. Showing very well. (ST) ...Read More »

1996 Gazin, Pomerol

88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Enticing aromas of roasted plum, tobacco, toffee and smoky oak. Smooth entry, then intensely flavored and rather backward, with sound acidity and firm tannins. Plenty of lingering flavor on the finish. Much firmer than my sample a year ago: I like this. (ST)" (5/1998) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gazin has been one of the most impressive Pomerols over the last decade. That's good news for consumers since it is a large estate, with the potential to produce 10,000 cases. The 1996 is an atypically tannic, serious Gazin with a dense ruby/purple color, and lavish quantities of ...Read More »

2013 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot (1.5L)

90 points Wine & Spirits: "Duckhorn takes the soft lushness of merlot and brings along some crisp tailoring. It’s a clean wine with stamina, coasting on soft cherry flavor, darkening to blueberry length. A simple pleasure." (10/2016) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Solidly built, with a lively, focused core and aromas of dark berry and spice mixed with sleek flavors of cherry and licorice. Drink now through 2027."

2000 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A saturated purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of ink, plum, cassis, licorice, smoke, and espresso. Dense, full-bodied, and opulent, offering a hedonistic as well as intellectual turn-on, it should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)" (4/2003) 90 points James Suckling: "Nice aromas of chocolate, spices, cedar, and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied and juicy, with nice fruit and a soft finish. This is delicious now, no need to wait." (10/2012) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive aromas of raw meat and fresh fruit, with hints of smoke.

2015 l'Evangile, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

99-100 points James Suckling: "What a wine here. It is so traditional and powerful with super depth of fruit and chewy tannins. Full body, incredible concentration and length. It’s so muscular and powerful. So minerally and nutty (walnuts). Marvelous." (4/2016) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 L'Evangile is a blend of 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc picked between September 15 and October 5, and September 29 to October 5 respectively. Matured almost in 100% new oak, it has a very pure and charming bouquet, the Merlot dominant and slightly shrouding the Cabernet Franc at the moment. It is worth staying with t ...Read More »

It is matured in 45% new oak barrels, 45% one-year-old and 10% in cement tank. It has a rich and generous bouquet with layers of black cherry, iodine and a hint of licorice.
