2015 de Chantegrive Rouge, Graves

92 points James Suckling: "This shows plenty of brash woodwork on the nose with an undercurrent of cassis and blackcurrant. The palate has an assertive core of fresh, lithe and long tannins forming a focused, flavor-drenched finish. Try from 2022." (2/2018) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Château de Chantegrive is another killer value in 2015 and is based on equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Loaded with notions of caramelized cherries, tobacco, truffle, and a hint of earth, this beauty hits the palate with a ripe, sexy, opulent style carrying polished tannin and plenty of length.

2009 Malmaison, Moulis-en-Médoc

Wine Spectator: "This has a good sappy feel, with kirsch and cherry preserves flavors laced with a pepper note and a lively tobacco streak. Shows a stony edge on the finish. Drink now through 2015. (JM)" (5/2012) K&L Notes: Not to be confused with the Napoleonic museum (Château de Malmaison) located just west of Paris, the 24 hectare Château Malmaison in Moulis, Gironde, was purchased by the Rothschilds in 1973 and lies adjacent to Château Clarke. The abandoned vineyard was renovated between 1974 and 1978, its soils now yielding distinctive and harmonious wines that are mellow, fruit... Read More »

2009 Saint Martial, St-Emilion Top Pick!

High quality, value Bordeaux is one of the great pleasures in wine. Saint Martial is a fine St-Emilion estate located along the Dorgodne River.

Predominately Merlot with 20% Cabernet Franc, this is classic St-Emilion split between 1/3 new oak, 1/3 used, 1/3 third neutral vats. With just the right amount of age in the bo... Read More »

2015 Jouanin, Cotes de Castillon Top Pick!
2015 Jouanin, Cotes de Castillon

Thank the emerging region of Cotes de Castillon for this spectacular deal in red Bordeaux from the well-balanced 2015 vintage. This cuvee shares many qualities of top-flight St-Emilion, with a great sweetness of fruit along with vanilla and spicy notes from new oak. Everyone who loves wine knows, it is hard to find a steal in Bordeaux these days, but this wine offers a lot of wine for the money, with layers of lush up-front black and red fruit characteristics, cellar-able, too, over the short term.

2015 Tour Leognan, Pessac-Léognan

Coming from the same vineyards and the same careful cellar-work as Château Carbonnieux, the younger sibling Château Tour Leognan provides the young-vine version for earlier drinking pleasure, and is a joyful way to enjoy fresh Bordeaux while you wait for the big dogs to mature. The heralded 2015 vintage provides a little extra power here, and gives this bottling a bit more depth of seriousness.

2015 Moulin du Sud Bordeaux Superieur

What a great value here. We tasted it during April 2017 Bordeaux trip-Organic wine made by Ch La Croix Taillefer, Pomerol. A blend of merlot and Cabernet, it is so lush on the palate-a bit new wave and quite California style. Sweet and sexy with some savoury notes. A steal at $13. These 15s are super delicious at this early stage. This one is spicy and vibrant.

2015 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves

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. She followed my advice by sending her wines to our hotel in April to be tasted, and Clyde and I liked them. I followed up by visiting the estate almost eight 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 w... Read More »

2014 Segonzac Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux Vieilles Vignes

Big, bold fruitiness dominates this wine whose structure is firm while smooth. Drink starting from 2019. (RV)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: The folks at Chateau Segonzac are sticklers for quality.

2009 Puygueraud, Côtes de Francs

92 points James Suckling: "Violets and blackberries with hints of spices on the nose. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now or hold. Always excellent value." (3/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec is from the Thienpont family. (Puygueraud is the estate where this large clan was born.) The 2009 is impressive, but the estate somewhat under-the-radar, since it is hard to pronounce and not exactly a household name. This is a beautifully fleshy wine with loads of licorice, spring flowers, graphite and black fruits. Flesh ...Read More »

2015 Pierre 1er, St-Emilion

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of flowers, blackberries and hints of spices. Full-bodied, yet integrated and tight. Shows poise and precision. Beautiful. Class. Drink now or hold." (2/2018) 90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Château Pierre 1er is a juicy, forward, delicious effort that offers lots of red and black currants, leafy herbs, cedar wood and sous bois. This medium-bodied, charming, moderately concentrated 2015 has plenty of fruit, a rounded texture, moderate acidity and ripe tannin, all suggesting it will keep for a decade or more." (11/2017)

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. Tasted twice with consisten ...Read More »

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

96 points Vinous: "I was deeply impressed with these wines from Domaine de Chevalier. The red has a slight upper hand in 2014, but both wines are distinctive and full of character. Olivier Bernard owns one of the crown jewels of Bordeaux, as these wines clearly make evident. The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier is a total knockout. Precise, brilliant and finely sculpted, the 2014 possesses superb intensity. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red berries, along with finessed but persistent tannins, give the wine its regal personality. The 2014 needs a number of years to shed some ...Read More »

2014 Domaine de L'A, Côtes de Castillon (Previously $30)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "While this Stephané Derenoncourt wine has dry tannins, it also has ripe fruit and blackberry flavors. Concentrated and firm for now, from 18 months in barrel, it will develop well to give a rich wine in the future. Drink from 2019. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2016) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This offers a pure core of dark plum, cherry and currant fruit melded with roasted apple wood, black tea and tobacco notes. Has heft, but stays silky and refined through the finish. Drink now through 2024. (JM)" (3/2017) 90 points Vinous: "The 2014 Domaine de l'A is dark, racy and explosive. Beams of tannin suppor ...Read More »

2010 Josephine de Boyd, Margaux

This is the the second wine from Château Boyd-Cantenac, who Robert Parker calls an "under the radar" estate, a classified growth from the famed 1855 rankings. This is a soft, approachable Margaux with floral notes mixed in with red fruits on the nose and palate and an elegant texture.
