2015 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

99-100 points James Suckling: "This is an incredible young Yquem that is so vinous like a great vintage of Montrachet but then on the palate it turns to Yquem with spice, dried fruit and mushroom as well as sweet fruit. Last for minutes. Acidity is all there giving it a dynamic vibrance that jolts your senses. Special wine. It has a little more than than 140 grams of residual sugar, less than the legendary of 2001. But is very close in greatness. Let’s wait and see."

2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

96 points James Suckling: "A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused. Lovely now to drink but better in 2017." (10/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous. There's something ethereal about its tannins, like a chocolate truffle melting in the mouth. (Daniel Ll ...Read More »

Fabulous harmony to this young wine. Very classic Bordeaux. Superb depth and length. Real Bordeaux." (4/2016) 95-98 points Vinous: "One of the wines of the vintage, the 2015 Pontet-Canet oozes class, finesse and pure pedigree. A hypothetical combination of the 2010 (for its dark fruit and tannic structure) and the 2009 (for its voluptuous fruit), the 2015 offers remarkable intensity, power and grace.

2016 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Canon makes it a double slam-dunk for head winemaker Nicolas Audebert and his team, as it is the second of two ethereal wines that will put the estate right at the top of the Saint Emilion tree. This year is a blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc picked from 22 September until 10 October at 45 hectoliters per hectare. It delivers 14.02% alcohol and an IPT of 65. Matured in 65% new oak, it has a compelling bouquet with intense black cherry and blueberry fruit, a tincture of oyster shell, all with exquisite definition. The palate is medium-b ...Read More »

But then the subtle, perfumed aromas and structured fruit show through, along with the clean acidity and black tannic fruits. Give this wine at least 12 years before opening. (RV)" (6/2003) 93 points James Suckling: "This is just starting to open up on the nose with tobacco, plums and currants throughout.

1994 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is no secret that Anthony Barton's efforts over the last decade at his St.-Julien estate, Leoville-Barton, is resulting in terrific wines at still reasonable prices. This estate has been extremely successful in recent vintages. An impressive, serious, classic Bordeaux for collectors who are willing to forget about it for at least a decade, this well-endowed offering is a 30-year wine. The dense, murky, purple color, closed aromatics, massive flavor richness, and high tannin recall the old, non-compromised, beefy, blockbuster Medocs produced thirty yea ...Read More »

It is a great wine. (RP)" (4/1995) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Youthful yellow color, with aromas of sliced lemons, lemon tart, and tropical fruit.

Full-bodied and extremely finely textured on the palate, lasting for minutes. A joy to drink now. Get some." (11/2015) 93 points Vinous: "Medium red. Very ripe aromas of plum and musky brown spices; redder in character and less precise than the 2006.

A seamless tannin texture. Great wine. You want to drink it now!" (4/2017) 96-99 points Vinous: "The 2016 Pontet-Canet has been absolutely brilliant on the three occasions I’ve tasted it so far.

1994 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark ruby/purple-colored, with a crushed, pure cassis aroma, this excellent, medium to full-bodied wine reveals sweet fruit on the attack, plenty of tannin, but not the inner-core of richness and density exhibited by such other 1994 Pauillacs as Pichon-Lalande, Grand-Puy-Lacoste, and Pontet-Canet. To its credit, the 1994 Pichon-Baron does not reveal any vegetal notes. It should evolve nicely for 10-15 years, representing an attractive, well-made, medium-bodied, classically rendered Bordeaux.

Shows such amazing balance and intensity. Crazy finish. Hints of vanilla and apple purée. One of the greatest Yquems ever. All about purity here." (9/2013) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 10,000 cases of this perfect sweet white Bordeaux. The 2001 Yquem reveals a hint of green in its light gold color.

Truly superb." (2/2017) 97 points Vinous: "The 2014 Montrose is without question one of the standout wines of the vintage. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and lavender are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up in the glass. But the 2014 is a much deeper wine than just a bunch of descriptors can conjure.

2010 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac 2017 Ex-Chateau Release 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bizarre as it may sound, the 2010 Les Forts de Latour is also the finest I have ever tasted from this selection, which comes from specific vineyards, not really so much a second wine as just another wine from estate holdings. A blend of 72.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27.5% Merlot that represents 40% of the production, this astonishing wine hit 14.3% natural alcohol. Extremely ripe and rich, it reminds me of the 1982 on steroids (and that wine is still drinking great 30 years after the vintage).

The tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit, while the 100% new oak is remarkably well integrated at this stage. Dark, powerful and brooding, the 2016 possesses remarkable polish for such a big wine. The purity of the flavors is simply captivating.

(2/2015) 94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Pichon-Longueville Baron is wonderfully aromatic and textured in the glass. Scents of smoke, pipe tobacco and cedar meld into a core of intense dark fruit. Pliant and supple, but with considerable underlying structure, the 2012 is likely to drink well for the next two to three decades, perhaps longer, but it is also going to need at least a few years in bottle for the tannins to ...Read More »

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.

1969 Pibran, Pauillac (1.5L)

Perched upon a 17-acre in a hilltop in the famed Pauillac region, Château Pibran boasts such prestigious neighbors as Mouton-Rothschild and Pontet-Canet.

Its well-drained gravel site is planted mostly to Merlot, plus Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Petit Verdot, making it the vineyard with perhaps the largest percentage of Merlot in Pauillac.

1982 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, Pauillac (bin soiled label)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blockbuster was a sleeper of the vintage long before the Rothschilds invested so heavily in modernizing this estate as well as began making a stricter selection. Close to full maturity, the 1982 Duhart Milon exhibits classic notes of creme de cassis, cedar, and flowers, medium to full body, a high level of glycerin, and a lusciousness and fleshiness that are very much in keeping with the vintage. There is a slight amount of pink at the rim, but this beauty should keep for another ten years. (RP)" (6/2009) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full, saturated red. Aromatic nose of plum, sm ...Read More »

2009 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Ranked #3 on Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2012* A major success of the vintage. The wine exhibits extreme richness of the fruit, with all its sweet blackberry flavors. It also has underlying firm structure, density and solid tannins. Bring in the acidity at the end, and this is both impressive and ready for long-term aging. (RV)" (2/2012) 96 points James Suckling: "Very floral, with fresh mushrooms and currants on the nose. Full body, with powerful tannins, yet polished and refined. Lovely length. Vibrant acidity. Well structured. Try after 2018." (2/2012) 95 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked # ...Read More »

1989 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac Top Pick!
1989 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

96 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers so much blackberry, leather and dried fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with ultrapolished tannins and a silky mouthfeel. The palate turns to leaves, cedar and dried berries on the finish, which goes on and on. This is still reserved for the vintage, suggesting a long life ahead. Just coming around now, but will improve many years ahead. I have always loved this Lynch. (JS, Web-2010)" 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I have tasted the Château Lynch Bages 1989 several times since my last penned note in 2010. It is such a consistent wine, a Pauillac that never lets you down. Here it ...Read More »

1996 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full red-ruby. Explosive aromas of boysenberry juice, espresso and smoky oak. Thick and lush, with terrific volume in the mouth; harmonious acidity gives the flavors clarity and brightness. Very long, sweet finish. (ST)" (6/1999) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Rauzan-Segla now at 20 years of age has an "airy," perfumed bouquet with wilted rose petals, undergrowth and dried orange peel scents. What it lacks is a sense of presence. Perhaps it is enduring a dumb phase? The palate is much better than the aromatics, showing fine balance and crisp tannins. The acidity is well judged ...Read More »

2009 Figeac, St-Emilion

98 points James Suckling: "The aromas in this are amazing, with blueberries, blackberries and fresh mushrooms. Black olives. So aromatic. Full-bodied, with super velvety tannins and lovely depth of ripe fruit. Balanced. Wild flavors on the finish of, meat, berries and forest fruits. Hints of decadence. 33% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon. Best Figeac ever. Try after 2020." (2/2012) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A ripe year like 2009 is kind to the Cabernet Sauvignon of Château Figeac. The wine is perfumed with new wood and sweet fruits, delicious black currant flavors giving both ripeness a ...Read More »

2014 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Apricot tones with lively acidity give this rich wine a vein of freshness. Pear and white peach notes offer weight, while a lime backbone brings levity. There is a richness from the botrytis that is lifted by this wines delicious freshness. (RV)" (4/2015) 98 points James Suckling: "Very subtle Yquem on the nose with dried pineapple, lemons, green apples and hints of botrytis. The palate grabs you by the arms and shows you superb concentration of spices, dried fruit, phenolics and incredible energy. Nothing is like this from Sauternes this vintage! Drink whenever you like.

2009 Branon, Pessac-Léognan

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This magnificent, dense plum/purple-colored Pessac-Leognan reveals notes of scorched earth, burning embers, blackberries and truffles. Composed of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a vineyard gorgeously situated between Malartic Lagraviere and Haut-Bailly, it possesses full-bodied power, a stunningly intense, voluptuous, layered mouthfeel and abundant levels of fruit, glycerin and tannin. The 2009 ranks alongside the magnificent 2000, which is aging at a glacial pace. Unfortunately, proprietress Helene Garcin only produces around 500 cases of this somewhat ...Read More »

2010 Montrose, St-Estèphe (375ml) Back In Stock!
2010 Montrose, St-Estèphe (375ml)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Montrose vertical in London, the 2010 Montrose was the youngest vintage by some 115 years, but it is undeniably one of the best. It is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot picked from 27 September until 15 October. Deep, almost opaque in color, it has a tightly wound, arresting nose of blackberry, bilberry, crushed violets and graphite all with quite brilliant delineation. The palate is medium rather than full-bodied, laden with plenty of fruit, grippy like many 2010s with a structured, mascul ...Read More »

1994 Latour, Pauillac

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is an interesting as well as great vintage for Latour. As indicated in my barrel tasting report, Latour's 1994 possesses an atypically high percentage of Merlot (27%) in the final blend. Because of this, the wine appears to have a sweeter, more fleshy texture than is typical for a young Latour, but do not make the mistake of thinking this will be a commercially-styled, easy to drink wine. It exhibits an opaque dark ruby/purple color, and a backward, intense textbook nose of walnut and cassis scents complemented by smoky pain grille notes that build ...Read More »

92 points Wine & Spirits: "(No tasting note given.)" (4/2002) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the 1999 horizontal at Bordeaux Index. The Leoville-Barton ’99 has a well-defined nose, more restrained and extrovert than the Langoa, with notes of blackberry, wild hedgerow/woodland, Chinese tea and a dash of white pepper. Very good definition. The palate is medium-bodied, sturdy tannins, a little pepper again on the entry with very good structure on the mid-palate. Quite foursquare and 'correct' with an edgy, off-dry, very Saint Julien' finish. Very fine – very...English! Drink now-2020. (NM)" (7/2009) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A power ...Read More »

2005 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft. Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, balanced by unrelenting purity of fruit that somehow manages to anesthetize the monstrous tannin, to soften the extremely dry, mineral-bound finish into a caress. The wine may be bombastic, but it's also succulent and as sweet as a ripe black raspberry. It's easy to imagine this wine 50 years from now, in impeccable condition." (10/2008) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A great, classic Pauillac, with its dark, dense, almost black currant ...Read More »
