2012 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves (Previously $16)

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 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 »

2014 La Fleur Peyrabon, Pauillac (Previously $25) Top Pick!
2014 La Fleur Peyrabon, Pauillac (Previously $25)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A small part of Château Peyrabon (Haut-Médoc) is in the Pauillac appellation and is vinified and bottled separately. The wine delivers great fruit and equal richness. It is spice, packed with black plum and berry flavors. It is a powerful dense wine to age for several years. Drink from 2023. (RV)" (4/2017) 90 points Vinous: "The 2014 La Fleur Peyrabon is soft, supple and absolutely delicious. Although not especially complex, it offers striking purity of fruit and also drinks quite well today. Expressive floral and spice notes and a burst of red-toned fruit round things out n ...Read More »

2012 Gazin Rocquencourt, Pessac-Léognan (Previously $25)

92 points Vinous: "Black cherry, plum, chalk, smoke, leather and gravel all flesh out in the 2012 Gazin Rocquencourt. Dark and baritonal in its expression, the 2012 is deep, plush and quite expressive. Substantial tannins appear on the finish, suggesting the 2012 needs at least a few years in bottle. Best of all, the 2012 delivers superb quality and personality. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. (AG)" (1/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep, rich, red and black currant fruit, plum, soy and Asian spice are present in this inky/purple wine, which is medium to full-bodied with supple t ...Read More »

2014 Fonplégade, St-Emilion (Previously $33)

92 points James Suckling: "Dark-berry and oyster-shell aromas follow through to a medium body, integrated tannins and a tangy finish. An almost burnt lemon undertone. Linear and polished. Very solid. Drink in 2019." (2/2017) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Fonplegade has an almost opaque bouquet that demanded continuous swirling of the glass before it reluctantly offered blackberry, raspberry and cedar wood aromas, just a touch of fireside hearth in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, the acidity finely tuned with a voluminous and vigorous finish of redcurrant jam, raspberry an ...Read More »

2010 Malmaison, Moulis (1.5L) (Previously $40)

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries and minerals follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a caressing finish. Very finely crafted. Gorgeous wine from here. Better in 2015." (2/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, dark red. Cassis and mint on the classy, youthfully medicinal nose. Juicy and on the lean side but intensely flavored and sharply focused, with bright acidity framing the red berry and licorice flavors. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry, with a strong spine of acidity. This very solidly built Merlot-dominated wine should put on weight with a few years in the bottle. (The ...Read More »

2014 Fourcas Hosten, Listrac (Previously $22)

91 points James Suckling: "Chocolate and berry aromas with perfumed undertones. Full body, soft and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Excellent." (2/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Glossy, fragrant and open-knit. Full of flavour and with well-manicured tannin that is very moreish to drink now. Maybe a bit simple, but well formed otherwise. (RH)" (10/2016) Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* Mild fruit flavors are out shined by bright acidity, leaving a wine that is all about crispness and dry tannins. (RV)" (2/2016)

2013 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "The production is tiny, yet the potential of this wine is enormous, with its tight, textured structure that is still so young. It is opulent and generous while still keeping a tight rein on its emotions. A steely core is surrounded by fruit that has hints of apricots as well as citrus. This will be a very fine wine but it needs many years, so wait until 2022. (RV)" (3/2016) 95 points James Suckling: "This is very, very long and intense with velvety tannins and plenty of sweet tobacco, cedar and dark berry aromas and flavors. Already open and delicious to drink. This is difficult to ...Read More »

1981 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Previously $280)

92 points John Gilman: "For drinking at the present time, it is hard not to love the more middleweight vintage of 1981 at Pichon-Lalande. The wine is at its absolute apogee of peak drinkability at the present time, wafting from the glass in a beautiful and quite classic aromatic blend of sweet cassis, cigar wrapper, gravelly soil tones, a touch of chipotle pepper, cigar ash and a whisper of merlot-derived sweet herb in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and utterly suave on the attack, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip, melting tannins and impecca ...Read More »

2013 Climens, Barsac (Previously $100)

97 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* There's loads here, with apricot, nectarine and clementine flavors stitched with a racy orange zest note to give energy, along with tropical papaya and mango flavors that add a sublimely creamy edge. The finish sails on and on, coating the palate with a porcelain feel, while an echo of bitter almond hangs effortlessly, like a lace curtain hanging on an endless breeze. Stunning. Best from 2018 through 2043. (JM)" (1/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Climens has a very fragrant bouquet with bunches of white flowers, buttercup, citrus fruits, honey and just ...Read More »

2003 de Fargues, Sauternes (Previously $90)

2007 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 2007 Château Doisy-Védrines does not achieve the same level of precision as the 2006 on the nose, although there is plenty of botrytis here with scents of melted candle wax and white peach. The palate is vibrant on the entry with impressive weight: hints of orange peel and apricot with a tender, almost understated finish. This improves in the glass, gaining more complexity and nuance and yet never quite demonstrating the sheer ambition as the 2009. Yet I notice even within the limited amount of time at my disposal some meliorat ...Read More »

1976 Climens, Barsac (Previously $270)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Bordeaux Index’s Chateau Climens dinner, this is the best bottle of ’76 I have encountered. A very clear, lucid amber hue. The nose is just beautiful, perhaps more perfumed and floral than previous bottles with almond, apricot, white peach, passion fruit, a hint of lime leaf and quince. The palate is also more delicate than previous bottles, vibrant acidity on the entry, quite edgy, a viscous heart with a dainty, dried peach finish. Beautiful. Tasted November 2009. (NM)" (3/2010) Jancis Robinson: "A glorious bottle bought ex château in1998. Brilliant orange. S ...Read More »

2010 Vieux Taillefer, St-Emilion (1.5L) (Previously $190)

James Suckling: "A bit lean, but some attractive blackberry and sweet tobacco character. Medium body. Fresh finish." (4/2011) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium bright red. Restrained aromas and flavors of red cherry, mint, licorice and violet. Offers good but not outstanding intensity of flavor but finishes sweet and suave. Not the last word in complexity or length but nicely made and likely to provide delicious early drinking. Stephane Derenoncourt consults here. (ID)" (5/2011)

2014 Doisy-Daëne "L'Extravagant" Sauternes (375ml) (Previously $170)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daëne 2014 has a very intense bouquet of wild honey, acacia and orange blossom that soars from the glass. The palate is unctuous, decadent and powerful – completely living up to its name – with layers of honeyed fruit on the long finish. It is like a super-charged Beerenauslese, somehow retaining immense tension and precision on the finish. For hedonists only. Queue up. (NM)" (4/2015) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Richly rendered, with pineapple, tangerine and nectarine gélee notes carried by a racy streak of orange zest. The long, honeyed finish glistens bea ...Read More »

1975 Climens, Barsac (Previously $260)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1975 Climens has a glorious bouquet with beautifully defined citrus fruit, wild honey, orange blossom and just a touch of old antique furniture. It blossoms in the glass. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a killer line of acidity. This is still fresh and tense with marmalade, grapefruit, mandarin, bitter orange and brown spices. It feels long and tender in the mouth: quite a powerful Climens at its peak. (NM)" (6/2015) Jancis Robinson: "High-botrytis vintage, low yields (7.2 hl/ha). TA 4.5 g/l (sulphuric), RS 98 g/l. Deep gold with the first signs of amber. More oily ...Read More »

1990 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien (Previously $230)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium red with a reddish-amber rim. Pungent notes of cinnamon, quinine and rosemary complicate red cherry on the enticing, aromatic nose. Juicy and fresh on the palate, showing good density to the red fruit, peppery plum and herb flavors. Offers very good texture and chewy but noble tannins, with precise mineral-tinged fruit flavors lingering nicely on the peppery, flinty finish. A real step up in concentration from the 1989, and unlike that vintage this will still improve with further bottle age, though it's drinking well now. Very well done. (I ...Read More »

1962 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Previously $550)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a typical St.-Estephe in the sense that wines from this commune are generally described as being hard and unyielding. Nevertheless, all the components are there, the dark ruby color, the very good concentration and weight, and the moderate tannin. (RP)" (12/1997)
