2009 Coufran, Haut-Médoc

92 points James Suckling: "The quality of the fruit and tannins are very pretty here. It’s full-bodied, with round velvety texture and a delicious finish. Very impressive. Drink or hold."

2015 La Cour d'Argent, Bordeaux (Previously $13)

90 points James Suckling: "Impressive depth and rather polished dry tannins for this humble appellation, then quite a bold, long finish. Already very attractive, but no hurry to drink this."

Sensational notes of black cherries, blueberries, liquid violets, awesome graphite, and scorched earth-like minerality all give way to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, incredibly pure, yet masculine beauty that has building tannin, beautiful purity of fruit, and a great finish. It's not going to match the 2015 on sheer size and scale, but it's a sensational wine. It’s going to need 3-4 years of bottle age to be drinkable and will keep for ...Read More »

2014 Keenan Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Vinous: "Keenan's 2014 Merlot is a very pretty wine that shows the more translucent side of Merlot. Lifted, bright and articulate, the 2014 offers lovely finesse in its red-toned fruit and floral aromatics. I would prefer to drink the 2014 sooner rather than later given its mid-weight structure. (AG)" (12/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Merlot from Napa is a delicious, solidly constructed 100% Merlot that sells for a reasonable price.

2015 Godeau, St-Emilion

Although the 2015 is decidedly sumptuous, it also has quite of tannic bite and overall verticality. Readers will want to cellar this explosive Saint-Émilion for at least a few years. (AG) 93+" (2/2018) 91 points James Suckling: "Because it’s packed with ripe black fruits and bitter chocolate, the first impression this gives is of softness and easy drinking.

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.

93-94 points James Suckling: "Dense and layered red with dark berry, volcanic ash and white pepper. Full-bodied, layered and chewy. Muscular." (4/2018) 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I tasted the 2017 Château Tour Saint Christophe on two sperate occasions and it never failed to impress. A rough blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 14.3% natural alcohol, it has a rocking sense of minerality to go with big, broad, expansive aromas and flavors. Blueberries, black raspberries, flowers, and violets characteristics, medium to full-bodied richness, fine tannin, and excellent purity all make this a terrific 2 ...Read More »

2017 Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Reminding me of the 2014, the 2017 Château Clinet is a beautiful, dense, concentrated wine that has terrific notes of blueberries, spring flowers, and chocolaty oak. It’s very much in the style of the vintage with its cool, perfumed aromatics and sensational purity of fruit, yet it also has richness and weight. It’s a brilliant Pomerol." (4/2018) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Alluring, offering fleshy layers of fig, boysenberry and plum compote notes lined with anise and roasted apple wood accents, this is nicely integrated already, with fresh acidity embedded throughout. (JM)" (4/2018) ...Read More »

2001 Avignonesi Desiderio

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Desiderio, Merlot with a bit of Cabernet in the blend, is simply the best in the history of the house, blackish in tone and with purple highlights, warm and intense in aroma with perfectly ripe black berry fruit, sandalwood, cinnamon, and vanilla, very broad and rich on the palate, sizeable, sweet, and gratifying. Drink: 2005-2020." (04/05)

2009 Figeac, St-Emilion

98 points James Suckling: "The aromas in this are amazing, with blueberries, blackberries and fresh mushrooms. Black olives. So aromatic. Full-bodied, with super velvety tannins and lovely depth of ripe fruit. Balanced. Wild flavors on the finish of, meat, berries and forest fruits. Hints of decadence. 33% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon. Best Figeac ever. Try after 2020." (2/2012) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A ripe year like 2009 is kind to the Cabernet Sauvignon of Château Figeac. The wine is perfumed with new wood and sweet fruits, delicious black currant flavors giving both ripeness a ...Read More »

2017 Beauséjour (Duffau), St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Of the three properties under the helm of Nicolas Thienpont, the 2017 Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse offers the most richness and depth. Blueberries, crème de cassis, graphite, violets, crushed rocks, and spring flowers notes all give way to a structured, vibrant, fresh, yet tannic red that's going to need 3-4 years of bottle age but might end up being one of the top wines of the vintage. Tasted twice. This beauty is made from 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc that was brought in between the 22nd of September and 2nd of October, with yields of 38 hectolite ...Read More »

2015 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "Lots of cedar, tea-leaf and hazelnut character and ripe fruit aromas. Citrus peel, too. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Smoky undertone. This is structured and so complex. Drink in 2023." (2/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A straight up smokin’ red from this vintage is the 2015 Château Gazin and it’s a big, powerful, stacked 2015 that’s for those with patience. Made from almost all Merlot (I think it’s 100%), my notes on this beauty start - and end - with “love it.” Cassis, lead pencil shavings, graphite, forest floor, and tons of minerality all soar from ...Read More »

2015 Villemaurine, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Crushed violet and blueberry aromas with a chalky edge. Smells restrained. The palate has a wealth of fresh flavors. So supple and even. Great depth and detail here. Try from 2022." (2/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Villemaurine is blended of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, aged in 70% new and 30% one-year-old oak barrels for 16 months. Medium garnet-purple in color, it is scented of crushed black cherries, mulberries and blackberry preserves with cedar chest and rose hip hints.

2015 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "The aromas to this are phenomenal with oyster shell, blackberries, iodine and black truffles. Full-bodied, layered and so refined and intense. Love the texture and intensity. Chalky. Amazing. Goes on for minutes. Try in 2023." (2/2018) 97 points Vinous: "The 2015 Larcis Ducasse is just as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel. Rose petal, lavender, spice and mint give it an attractive upper register that melds seamlessly into a core of inky red and purplish fruit. Dense, powerful and overt, the 2015 also has quite a bit of freshness to liven up the flavors. Silky tann ...Read More »

2017 Poesia, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Vinous: "The 2017 Poesia is gorgeous. Dark, ample and inviting, the 2017 Poesia exudes richness and concentration from the very first taste. Inky dark red/purplish fruit, spice, new leather, tobacco and menthol are beautifully delineated. Succulent and yet also pulsating with energy, the 2017 possesses terrific balance. This is a gorgeous wine in the making. (AG)" (4/2018) 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Poesia is more than a little impressive and comes from Hélène Garcin-Lévêque at Barde-Haute. Mostly Merlot with roughly 30% Cabernet Franc, aging in 80% new barrels, it boasts lovely aro ...Read More »

2017 Figeac, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Vinous: "The 2017 Figeac is magnificent. Beautifully layered and exquisite in the glass, the 2017 possesses remarkable balance and harmony from the very first taste. An utterly beguiling, captivating wine, the 2017 simply has it all. Bright, red-toned fruit, mint, spice, lavender and rose petal overtones flesh out in the glass, but above all else, Figeac is a wine of total harmony. The Grand Vin includes 10% second generation fruit. Even so, production is down around 50%. (AG)" (5/2018) 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Château Figeac is an undeniable success in the vintage and this estate ...Read More »

2014 Gigault "Cuvée Viva," Premières Côtes de Blaye

91 points James Suckling: "Fragrant red-cherry and berry notes make this very appealing, and the interplay of bright fruit and ripe tannins is very satisfying. The finish is long and moderately dry. This has the balance and structure for quite long aging. A solid wine. Give it two or three years." (2/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Gigault Cuvée Viva 2014 had a reduced nose when I tasted it, although there was clearly a lot of rich black fruit packed behind. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, well-judged acidity and a boisterous black cherry and iodine finish that should calm down by ...Read More »
