2016 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is another chateau that's on the rise. This vintage has produced a powerful wine, solid with tannins and concentration.

2009 La Fleur, St-Emilion

94 points James Suckling: "Wow. So much intensity of fruit here, with crushed blackberries, blueberries and sandalwood. Like looking down a black hole. Full-bodied, with ultra-velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Chewy, but caressing and gorgeous. Best ever from here. Great value! Try in 2018."

Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015."

2009 Branas Grand Poujeaux, Moulis

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage from the backwater appellation of Moulis, the 2009 Branas Grand Poujeaux is a blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. A big-time wine, opaque purple in color, with loads of cassis, smoke, incense and licorice as well as an earthiness reminiscent of a St.-Estephe, this wine is full-bodied and long, with sweet tannin and an overall classic constitution. It can be approached now but should age nicely for 15-20 years. (RP)" (12/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Clearly ripe, with a juicy core of dark fig, cassis and blackberry flavo ...Read More »

It is so finely structured that you notice the blackberry fruit more than the tannins, with a seam of crisp acidity throughout. (RV)" (4/2017) 94-95 points James Suckling: "Dense and chewy already with plenty of ripe tannins and bright fruit. Vivid acidity. Full body, a firm and silky texture and a flavorful finish.

2014 Poesia, St-Emilion (Previously $50)

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Poesia is a powerful wine with serious density and richness. Black cherry, plum, spice and leather emerge with great reluctance. This packed, structured Saint-Émilion is going to need at least a few years to fully unwind. Even so, it is both impressive and promising. Helene Garcin and winemaker Alain Raynaud have done a terrific job here. The blend is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc.

(4/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Lagrange is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot that is matured in 50% new oak. The yield came in at 46.5 hectoliters per hectare, lower than in 2015.

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 »

Supple and sweet, with red berry fruit complicated by herbs and black olive. Finishes with suave, smooth, nicely ripe tannins. Tronquoy-Lalande was purchased in late 2006 by the Bouygues group, the new owners of Chateau Montrose, who installed Jean-Bernard Delmas as director here as well. (ST)" (5/2008)

(2/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gloria has long been one of the most popular wines in America, but I do not believe they have ever made better wines than they have over the last decade, and the 2009 is one of their finest. While this estate is not a classified growth, it certainly perf ...Read More »

2005 La Couspaude, St-Emilion (Elsewhere $80)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An outstanding sleeper of the vintage, the 2005 may turn out to be one of the finest examples yet of this modern-styled St.-Emilion. Nicely oaked, ripe but not over-ripe, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as sweet scents of pain grille, kirsch liqueur, and black currants. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, and rich, with good glycerin as well as freshness, and a long, heady finish, this succulent offering should be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years." (4/2006)

2010 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2010 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion

94 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of crushed blueberries and minerals with flowers follow through to a full body, with solid fruit and tannin structure and a long, long finish. Very intense. Better than 2009. Try in 2017." (2/2013) 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)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More closed than I remember from b ...Read More »

2009 Marquis de Terme, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Bright, full ruby-red. Sexy, syrah-like aromas of blackberry, violet, smoke, game and underbrush. Densely packed and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth floral lift to its crushed berry flavors. A very rich and sweet style of Margaux, but the broad, dusty, building tannins call for some cellaring. Boasts excellent length for a wine from this chateau." (7/2012) 93 points Decanter: "Sumptuous cassis and blackberry nose, with a good deal of new oak. Sleek, elegant, poised, with great intensity and purity of fruit. There's spice and vigour on the mid-palate, but it's taut, tight ...Read More »

2010 Berliquet, St-Emilion

92 points James Suckling: "Attractive nose with fresh leather, blueberries and vanilla. Nutmeg, chocolate and cedar. Full and super round with smooth polished tannins and excellent fruit. Long finish with licorice and soft mineral notes. Wonderful wine that will drink well from 2016." (2/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This is nicely cloaked with charcoal and roasted apple wood, while the core of steeped fig, blackberry and black cherry paste notes sits in reserve. The well-defined finish is mostly grip for now, but should meld in the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2026. (JM)" (3/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Glossy dark purplish cri ...Read More »

2016 Gloria, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Shows a flash of mint before giving way to a torrent of blueberry, blackberry and cassis flavors, pushed by energetic acidity and juicy, brambly grip. Plum cake and anise line the finish, along with a flash of tobacco. Lots going on here. (JM)" (4/2017) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Gloria is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc that was picked from 29 September until 17 October. It is matured in slightly less oak than the Saint-Pierre, at 40%. This is a little more backward and broody compared to the Saint-Pierre and indeed its ...Read More »

2015 Clos de L'Oratoire, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "A depth and texture that is very unique for this estate with blackberry, stone and mineral undertones. Full and tight. Wonderful length and style. Precise." (4/2016) 92-94 points Vinous: "A real stand out, the2015 Clos de l'Oratoire is powerful yet also wonderfully focused. Beams of acidity and tannin give the 2015 its sense of direction, while expressive floral notes add considerable brightness. The 2015 is intense yet also impeccable in its balance. The purity and breadth of the Merlot is striking. Readers will have to be patient with the 2015, as it is one of the most intens ...Read More »

2013 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (Previously $35)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is rich and full while still having a tight structure. It shows a fine streak of acidity that shoots through the honey and gingered marmalade flavors. A fine wine with potential. (RV)" (3/2014) 91-94 points Vinous: "An exotic, beguiling wine, the 2013 Doisy-Védrines lifts from the glass with expressive floral notes, white stone fruits, peach and apricots. The 2013 is soft, gentle and very nicely layered, conveying an impression of total elegance and finesse. (AG)" (4/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Still youthfully rambunctious, this is packed with pineapple, ginger, bitter almond and apricot fl ...Read More »

2014 Climens, Barsac (375ml)

97 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers wave after wave of piecrust, dried pineapple, warm marmalade, singed almond, glazed peach and apricot flavors, with a hint of brioche. Despite the heft, this has a breezy feel within, thanks to riveting acidity buried deep on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2040. (JM)" (3/2017) 96 points Decanter: "One extremely fine lot after another, all marked by an extremely pure lemony botrytis. Bright and crisp, with lovely sweetness and mindboggling precision. Choosing between the various barrels to make the final blend will be even tougher than usual this year. ...Read More »

2009 Grand Pontet, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2009 Grand Pontet, St-Emilion

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 70% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine has an opaque purple color and a sweet nose of vanillin, roasted coffee beans, chocolate and kirsch liqueur intermixed with blacker fruits such as cassis. It is rich, full-bodied, moderately tannic, but low in acidity and quite heady and powerful (15% natural alcohol). This impressive wine is a big, back-strapping effort to drink over the next 15+ years. Produced by Sylvie Pourquet, the sister of Gerard and Dominique Becot, this St.-Emilion grand cru classe com ...Read More »

2016 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "This is very tight and focused with blackberries, blackcurrants and licorice. Lots of crushed stones, too. Full-bodied, tightly wound and pretty. Exciting second wine from Ducru." (4/2017) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 La Croix de Beaucaillou is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot that is matured in 60% new oak for 12 months and the remainder in one-year-old barrels. It has quite a rich and opulent bouquet, quite glossy with scents of kirsch, crushed strawberry, crème de cassis and a touch of vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with quite sumptuo ...Read More »
