1999 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

Jancis Robinson: "57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec. Lots of classic claret aroma: baked earth, black cherry, menthol, forest floor. Still quite a lot of tannin on the palate, but it has a fine grained drinkability... (RH)" (5/2015)

2011 Rieussec, Sauternes (Previously $75+)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This shows incredible freshness and power, with dried pineapples, mangoes and papayas. Full body, medium-sweet with electrifying acidity. Vibrates your palate. Barrel sample still." (2/2014) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Intense, with ginger, yellow apple chutney, dried pineapple and papaya flavors coursing through a finish that brims with singed almond and lemon chiffon flavors. This retains a touch of youthful rawness, featuring a bitter orange note that's yet to be absorbed. No need to rush or worry here. Best from 2018 through 2040.

2015 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "This really is fantastic with so much ripe fruit and ripe tannins. Exquisite purity and beauty. 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Petit Verdot." (4/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Siran is a blend of 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot picked between 17 September to 12 October. It is raised in 25% new oak plus one-year barrels. It is a little richer and more opulent than its neighbor, the 2015 Dauzac, due to the higher proportion of Merlot. It veers to more red fruit here, wild strawberry and later cassis. The palate is smooth and sensual on the ...Read More »

2012 L'Arrosée, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2012 L'Arrosée, St-Emilion

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing far better than it did from barrel two years ago, L’Arrosée’s 2012 offers very fragrant, dark raspberry, black cherry and currant notes that jump from the glass of this wine. It’s an intriguing blend of 60% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins, an almost Burgundian complexity, forest-floor notes and medium to full-bodied richness and depth. This is a stunner, complex, precocious, and hard to resist, even in its youthfulness. Drink over the next 15 years. (R ...Read More »

92 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers the profile of the vintage, with spice-infused raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit coursing along nicely, followed by delineated anise and spice notes, all carried by a racy graphite spine. Rock-solid and nicely balanced, this should age elegantly. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM, Web-2013)" 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "A balanced and structured wine that shows fine acidity, berry fruits and dashing acidity. With the balance already there, it is developing well in barrel, promising a stylish wine down the road.

92 points James Suckling: "Very opulent and rich with loads of fruit and spice. Walnut and chocolate. Full and chewy. Exciting." (3/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A major sleeper of the vintage, this over-achieving St.-Emilion seems to come up big in many of the top vintages and needs more recognition from consumers. Loads of black currants, toasty oak and forest floor notes comprise this large-scaled, substantial wine. With its intense fruit, copius glycerin, and long, complete finish, this wine is successful now but should be better in 3-4 years and last for 15 or more.

2007 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong effort from this well-run estate, the 2007 Fleur Cardinale may turn out to be as good as the 2009, which is a slightly more ruggedly constructed and bigger wine, but not necessarily better. The 2007 is a mid-weight blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields were only 35 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine hit 13.5% natural alcohol. Sweet black currant and blueberry fruit intermixed with spring flower, graphite, and subtle wood aromas are followed by an intense, richly fruity St.-Emilion with low acids, sweet, r ...Read More »

1995 Chauvin, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chauvin's 1995 is not dissimilar from the 1994. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a sweet...jammy nose of black fruits, oak, and spice, this (is a) lush, attractively-textured, plump St.-Emilion. (RP)" (10/1997) K&L Notes: Robert Parker… 'Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a sweet, nearly over-ripe, jammy nose of black fruits, oak, and spice, this lush, attractively-textured, plump St.-Emilion will need to be drunk over the next 6-10 years because of its extremely low acidity.'

This is consistently one of the best St.-Emilions and over-achieving for its classification. The 2012 has pure, striking aromatics of blueberry, black raspberry, minerals and flowers.

The wine has solid but lively black fruits, the tannins dark, firm and full of blackberry juice flavors with a touch of cranberry dryness. It is definitely for aging.

The black plum-skin flavors are rich and dense, while the wine ends on a lifted note of black currant. (RV)" (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 du Tertre is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% each of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, picked 9 September until 9 October, matured in around 47% new oak.

2009 Beauregard, Pomerol Top Pick!
2009 Beauregard, Pomerol

93 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromas of blueberries, blackberries and dark chocolate, follow through to a full body, with super well-integrated tannins and bright gorgeous dark fruits. Wonderful length too. One of the best wines from here in a number of years. Best in 2016. (JS)" (2/2012) 90 points Vinous: "Good full ruby. Inviting nose shows pinot-like aromas of fresh raspberry, strawberry, violet and underbrush, plus a whiff of leather. Easygoing and sweet, with pliant flavors of black cherry, dark berries and smoky underbrush given adequate lift and precision by sound acids. Finishes with ro ...Read More »

2012 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac

92 points James Suckling: "A 2012 with currant, wet earth and walnut aromas and flavors. Full body, firm tannins and a savory finish. Give it three to four years to open. Well done. Better in 2018." (2/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Long owned by Xavier Borie, this Pauillac estate sits next to Batailley and is just south of Borie’s other famous château, Grand-Puy-Lacoste. The 2012, dramatically better from bottle than barrel, is bigger boned, richer and more flamboyant than this wine normally tends to be. The color is a healthy purple, and the wine offers plenty of cassis and licorice as well as a touch of ...Read More »

2015 Carbonnieux Rouge, Graves (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "A very tannic young wine with lots of extract. Full body, chewy and rich. Needs careful barrel maturation. Could be the best red ever from here. Traditional style." (3/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a dark side to this wine. It shows in the brooding black fruits that are surrounded by dense wood flavors. It has power and good concentration for the future. (RV)" (4/2016) 93 points Decanter: "Attractive dark red fruits, subtle liquorice and gently insisting tannins. One that will deliver pleasure earlier than some. There’s a silky approachability, but it should also develop well. (JA)" (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The ...Read More »

2015 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Wow. Real Cantemerle with stupendous power and depth. Mineral, stone and violet character. Full and structure. It starts slowly and then goes on for minutes. Perhaps best ever?" (5/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "With structured tannins and red berry notes, this is already showing an elegant structure. It is the fruit that sings here, gently supported by the fine, dusty tannins. (RV)" (4/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cantemerle is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. It offers plenty of blackberry and raspberry fruit on the nose, not the best defined ...Read More »

2015 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Extremely firm and silky. Dark berry, violet, salt and mineral. Full body. Energy, vibrant and verve. Layered and compressed. Best ever here. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc." (4/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Tour Saint-Christophe, owned by Peter Kwok since 2012, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 33 hl/ha between 3-16 October and matured in 40% new oak. It has an intense nose, perhaps slightly on the alcoholic side due to the Merlot (14.8%). The palate is more controlled and refined. There is still some new oak to be absorbed, but the tannins s ...Read More »

2015 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "The finesse and beauty in this wine is really something with blueberry, blackberry and licorice character. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long and gorgeous finish. Tactile and fine." (4/2016) 91 points Vinous: "The 2015 La Lagune is an absolutely delightful Haut-Médoc with forward fruit, lovely juiciness and tons of personality. Sweet tobacco, cedar, menthol, red cherry and earthy notes abound in this expressive, highly nuanced wine. (AG)" (4/2016) Jancis Robinson: "Unusually deep crimson. Really very luscious on the nose - a full, broad exposition of the vintage on the nose. Heady without ...Read More »

2015 Carbonnieux Blanc, Graves (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a beautiful straight line of crispness in this wine. It cuts right through the wood and ripe yellow fruits to leave a wine with great clarity. (RV)" (4/2016) 92-93 points James Suckling: "A fruity and attractive white with pear and green mango aromas and flavors. Full body. Flavorful." (3/2016) 92 points Decanter: "Great definition, this has soft white flowers with a graphite kick on the finish. Floral aromatics add a lift – this is one of the fresher whites of the vintage. (JA)" (4/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Carbonnieux Blanc is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon. It has a tightly wound grapefruit, ...Read More »

2010 Malmaison, Moulis (1.5L)

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: "(an 80/20 blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon): 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 ...Read More »

2009 Ormes De Pez, St-Estèphe

92 points James Suckling: "A big and chewy wine with plum and currant character. Full body, lots of tannins and a big backbone. Needs at least three to four years of age." (7/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A delicious wine, so fruity. It does have the proper tannins but it is a wine that is already approachable with its sweet fruits-a pleasure to taste. However, for the future, watch those tannins. (RV)" (2/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This is tight and precise, with lots of cut from start to finish, as chiseled graphite and iron notes support the dark currant, mulled fig and crushed blackberry fruit. Long and toasty, but well-inte ...Read More »

2014 Carbonnieux Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

91-92 points James Suckling: "Lots of sliced apple and pear character with a full body, fresh fruits and a tangy finish. Shows such balance and beauty already." (4/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Carbonnieux Blanc 2014 has a pretty nose in the making: precise apple blossom and blackcurrant leaf aromas that gently waft from the glass. The palate is crisp on the entry, the acidity not as shrill as some of its peers, thus rendering it a more 'languid' Pessac-Léognan. There is already a very elegant, gravelly finish that lingers in the mouth–a very promising Carbonnieux Blanc that may merit a higher sco ...Read More »

2014 La Gravette de Certan, Pomerol

Second wine of Vieux Chateau Certan. From Alexander Thienpont, of whom Robert Parker has said, in reviewing a previous vintage, "Alexander Thienpont continues to turn out brilliant wines from this property situated on the high Plateau of Pomerol." Fresh raspberries on the nose and on the palate with some toasty oak undertones. We drank it as we could not spit it out. This is a must buy. We have never carried this label and very little is made in each vintage. Clyde beffa
