2009 Coufran, Haut-Médoc

92 points James Suckling: "Soft and fruity with milk chocolate. Full and round textured. Goes on for a minute or two. Excellent for the vintage. Better than I remember.

Jancis Robinson: "50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. Cherries and a slight mocha note. Dense and savoury on the palate. Firm grip but fully ripe tannins. Needs a good bit of time. Drink 2015-2025. (JH)" (9/2011) James Suckling: "wine with a leafy and creamy character with hints of dried fruits. Full body, chewy tannins and a medium finish. Better in 2015." (7/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, this well-made Medoc reveals lots of cedar, tobacco leaf and black currant characteristics, silky tannin, medium to full body and attractive succulence and flesh. Year in and year out, d’Escurac is a majo ...Read More »

2009 Montrose, St-Estèphe 6-pack in OWC Back In Stock!
2009 Montrose, St-Estèphe 6-pack in OWC

100 points James Suckling: "Blueberries, currants and Indian spices on the nose follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a lovely finish. It's intense and refined. A beauty. It goes on for minutes. Speechless. Better and cleaner than the great 1990. Try in 2022." (2/2012) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A colossal effort, the 2009 Montrose represents a hypothetical blend of the monumental duo of 1989 and 1990 combined with the phenomenal 2003...the overall impression is one of massive blackberry, black currant and mulberry fruit intermixed with forest floor, damp earth, crushed rocks and a hint of ...Read More »

2009 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel, this appears to be the finest Lynch Bages since the 2000, 1990 and 1989. According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense o ...Read More »

2009 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (98RP, 97JS, 96ST, 96WE, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing incredible quality and performing better than it did from barrel, the 2009 appears to be the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron since the 1990 and 1989. An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate. Incredibly intense, pure and flawlessly constructed with extravagant layers of fruit and richness, this offering has developed beautifully under the management of Christian Seeley. It is a voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longueville Baron that may eclipse anything they have made in the past. This brilliant wine should be at its peak between 2018 and 2045. (RP)" (02/2012)

2009 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, it displays an inky/blue/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, forest floor, licorice, lead pencil, cedar and subtle barrique smells. Viscous and full-bodied, it is the most concentrated and broadest example of this cuvee I have tasted in over three decades. It will be ready to drink in 5-7 years and should last for three decades or more. Consumers looking to maximize value should be checking out Duhart Milon, as this may be the single smartest purchase in this great and historic v ...Read More »

2009 Les Allées de Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

90 points James Suckling: "Soft and pretty now with currants, mineral and stone character. Medium to full body, rough tannins." (10/2015) K&L Notes: This second wine of Château Cantemerle is primarily sourced from younger vine parcels from the esteemed estate. The wine has a similar profile to the Grand Vin, but is ready to drink within several years of harvest. That's now! A quick decant reveals generous fruit and and good terroir that is always welcome for under $20. The blend is 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot,and 10% Cabernet Franc. Even as a second wine, grapes were individually hand s... Read More »

2009 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien (1.5L)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deceptively approachable wine. Its gorgeous fruits are right up front, their ripeness powered by a generous, complex texture. There is concentration, but it is surrounded by so much richness. It can almost be drunk now, but should age well." (2/2012) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very dense and still rather reserved, with dark blueberry, blackberry and fig notes rolled together, framed by freshly brewed espresso and Black Forest cake notes. Long and tarry through the finish, with a melted licorice snap note hanging on at the very end. Best from 2014 through 2030." (3/2012) 92 points James Suckling: "Blueberry an ...Read More »

2009 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien 6-pack in OWC

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou will eclipse the brilliant wines produced in 2005, 2003 and 2000. It will be interesting to see how the 2009 fares against the 2010 after twenty years of aging, but my money is on the 2009. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, this inky purple, unctuous wine possesses classic aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, blueberries, violets, licorice and Christmas fruitcake. Full-bodied and intense with Ducru’s inimitable elegance and purity, it should firm up in the bottle after 7-10 ye ...Read More »

2009 Pouget, Margaux

93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Currant and blackberry galore on the nose, but the palate seems subtle and beautiful. Full-bodied, with wonderful silky tannins and a mineral, mint and berry aftertaste. Such delicious fruit here. (Web-2010)" 90-95 points Decanter: "Real Margaux nose with violets and cassis seamlessly interwoven. Lovely quality of fruit on the palate with layered. Textured complexity. Tannins beautifully managed, excellent length and persistence, very complete wine. (AG) Dense black red colour and fine fragrant black fruits on the nose, lots of concentration, but there is elegance and lift to co ...Read More »

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." (3/2012) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Château Canon vertical, the 2009 Canon is turning into the great wine it was predestined to become. A blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc (the same as 2010 incidentally), the nose is clearly more flattering, more opulent than the 2010 with an explosion of blackberry, melted tar, ki ...Read More »
