(4/2018) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2017 Tour Saint Christophe is another in a series of brilliant wines from proprietor Peter Kwok and consultant Michel Rolland. The 20% Cabernet Franc adds striking brightness to play off the dense, dark Merlot in this plush, beautifully nuanced Saint-Émilion. Already impeccably balanced, the 2017 appears to have a very promising future. Mocha, espresso, wild flowers and mint add the closing shades of nuance. Tasted three times. (AG) ...Read More »

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a powerful wine, with superb tannins and blackberry fruits. It has a dense texture allied to stylish fruitiness and acidity. The result is a wine with the potential to age over a long period of time, while probably showing well starting in 2028.

What I like about the bouquet is that it is quintessential Margaux--it could not come from anywhere else. Crushed violets infuse black cherries, blueberry and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well-judged acidity, an elegant and very charming Margaux with pencil lead and a touch of spice on the long finish.

Cassis, smoked earth, graphite, tobacco leaf, and thrilling amounts of minerality all emerge from this inky colored, full-bodied, power-packed, brut of a Saint-Julien that holds everything together and stays pure, balanced and elegant on the palate. It has a lot of tannins, yet more than enough fruit.

It has a tightly wound bouquet with blackberry, undergrowth and pencil-lead aromas—more Left Bank than Right Bank in style. The palate is well balanced with firm tannin, good depth and tension with a spicy, almost Graves-like finish that lingers in the mouth. It is a little austere at the moment, but I appreciate the focus and poise.

96 points James Suckling: "This is sensational, characterized by such purity and beauty and with aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate, walnuts, cedar and lavender. Full-bodied, tight and focused — in part thanks to sensational tannin tension that is intense yet polished. Needs five to six years of bottle age to come together. Great second wine of Palmer." (2/2018) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Powerful tannins initially show in this perfumed wine. Behind them lie velvety-smooth blackcurrant fruit. The wine is pure, open and will age well over a medium term. It will be ready to drink from 2025. (RV)" (4/2018) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The ...Read More »

Great structure, too. Needs four or five years to soften. Better in 2022." (2/2018) 97 points Vinous: "One of the highlights of the vintage, the 2015 Pavie Macquin is positively stellar. A veritable explosion of super-ripe red cherry, rose petal and mocha makes a strong opening statement.

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."

The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp blackberry and bilberry fruit with a healthy sprinkle of white pepper to spice up the finish.

94 points James Suckling: "This perhaps the best wine ever from here with a very powerful and rich body, yet it shows such polished and lively tannins. Chocolate, meat and spice undertones. Full and flavorful. Long finish. Drink in 2023." (2/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Intense black cherry, blackberry, new leather, espresso and torrefaction flavors give the 2015 Marquis d'Alesme much of its sumptuous, flamboyant personality. Plush, modern and exotic in both its concentration and flavor profile, Marquis d'Alesme presents the more extroverted side of Margaux. All the elements are wonderfully fused together ...Read More »

2015 Figeac, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A hold onto your hat wine, the 2015 Château Figeac is pure perfection and one of the wines of this terrific vintage. A blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, its deep purple color is followed by a huge nose of crème de cassis, black raspberries, smoked earth, and graphite. This is followed by a full-bodied, opulent and incredibly concentrated Saint-Emilion that has everything in the right places, no hard edges, thrilling purity of fruit, and a great, great finish.

2016 Haut-Brisson, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Haut-Brisson, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "Soft and velvety wine with blackberry, blueberry and raspberry character. Full body, a dense center palate and a long and pure finish. Another winner." (3/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Haut Brisson is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc was cropped at 42 hectoliters per hectare picked from 5-15 October, matured in 35% new oak. It has a rich and slightly heady bouquet with intense black cherry and crème de cassis notes, although I find that the Tour St Christophe, which is also owned by Peter Kwok, has far more detail. The palate is full-bodied with dense ripe ta ...Read More »

2015 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Decanter: "One of the best vintages I have tried from Prieure Lichine - this was excellent during en primeur and even more so now it's in bottle. Restrained elegance and precision are on display, balancing out the oozing, rich damson fruit and the well placed liquorice edging. Well balanced, the fruit is cleanly cut and held, the ripe black fruits spliced in two. Poised, with good ripeness, a standout for me. 50% new oak barrels, Stéphane Derenoncourt consults. (JA)" (11/2017) 96 points James Suckling: "Some very ripe dark-plum aromas with a wealth of sweet spices and earthy notes. The palate ...Read More »

2016 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-98 points Wine Spectator: "The deep well of gorgeous cassis, blueberry paste and blackberry puree flavors will carry this for the long haul. Shows a terrific graphite underpinning and a flash of cold charcoal. This is a big one. (JM)" (4/2017) 95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Looking at the 2016 Leoville Poyferre from barrel, this deep, inky-colored Saint-Julien doesn’t pull any punches and boasts serious amounts of ripe currant, blueberry, and cassis-like fruits, liquid violets, crushed rocks and graphite on the nose. A rich, full-bodied, prodigious barrel sample that has a stacked mid-palate, ripe, sweet tannin a ...Read More »

2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This is all about the finish with a sweet-tobacco, berry and light milk-chocolate character. Full body, very fine tannins and a juicy finish. Love the intensity and finesse at the end. Lots of energy. Could better the exquisite 2014." (4/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot that matured in 75% new oak. It has 13.3% alcohol this year. It has an extraordinarily pure bouquet with blackberry, briary, touches of pencil shaving and cedar aromas--quintessential Grand-Puy-Lacoste, basically. The palate is medium-bodi ...Read More »

2015 Valandraud, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Valandraud, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine that will be a candidate for perfection at maturity, the 2015 Valandraud is a heavenly wine that exhibits a deep, saturated ruby/purple color as well as a sensational bouquet of blackcurrants, cassis, crème caramel, graphite, and chocolate. This full-bodied, expansive, super concentrated 2015 is a hedonistic dream and has exceptional purity, balance, and equilibrium. While it offers pleasure today, it needs short-term cellaring and will keep for 20+ years." (11/2017) 98 points James Suckling: "Plenty of toasty oak and extract here. This has immensely concentrated fruits with ...Read More »

2015 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This dense, rich wine is firm with solid tannins. Its texture and structure give it an opulent character that brings out tannins as much as the ripe black fruits. Powerful and concentrated it needs time to get its potential elegance in order. Then it will be a major wine, so it’s worth waiting until 2027. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (4/2018) 95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, currants, cedar and tobacco. Full-bodied, layered and dense. Great fruit yet tight and structured. A classically proportioned red with so much intensity. A wine for the future. Try it in 2022. ...Read More »

2015 Kirwan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This rich wine is full of fruit and structured with layers of tannin. It’s also stylish and elegant, with a suave texture that is already attractive. Black fruits mix with the structure to give a wine that will age well. Drink from 2026. *Editors’ Choice* (RV)" (12/2017) 93 points Decanter: "This is an effortlessly elegant and classy Margaux. Real structure where the tannins hold without being intrusive, close to the 2015 in quality.

2015 Reserve de la Comtesse de Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "This is an impressive second wine. It shows a lot of vibrant red berries, blackberries and darker plum fruits. The palate is impressive for the vibrant and lively acidity cast amid sturdy but supple tannins. Second wine from Pichon-Lalande. Try from 2021." (2/2018) 92 points Vinous: "The 2015 Réserve de la Comtesse is a superb second wine. Time in barrel and egg white fining have softened some of the tannins the 2015 showed as a barrel sample, but the fruit intensity, pedigree and class of the estate are all in the glass. Black cherry graphite, smoke and licorice are some of ...Read More »

2015 Petit Figeac, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "This is very powerful with lots of dark chocolate and blueberry character. Full body, concentrated and chewy. 48% cabernet sauvignon, 32% merlot and 20% merlot." (4/2016) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is aromatic, with fine acidity and dusty tannins that are ripe and almost approachable. It is a generous, open wine with plenty of bright fruits and blackberry flavors. The acidity is what lifts the wine at the end." 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 32% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Petit Figeac reveals notes of warm cherries, red ...Read More »

2015 Latour à Pomerol, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "This steps into an elite league of Pomerol class and concentration, whilst still exuding freshness and transparency. It is a great vintage for Latour à Pomerol. Smells of pristine lightly spiced blueberries and plums and leads to intense flavors of red plums and red cherries cloaked in perfectly integrated spicy oak. Long, regal tannins that are seamless. This is clearly the best Latour à Pomerol for over 30 years. Try from 2023." (2/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the blockbusters in the Moueix portfolio is the 2015 Latour A Pomerol. A blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Fr ...Read More »

2016 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Decanter: "This beautiful Margaux might not exceed the 2015 but it is undeniably doing a good job of keeping up. It combines elegance and richness, with extremely well extracted deep fruits and plenty of layers of finesse in the form of charcoal, slate, grilled almonds and cloves. An excellent Prieuré with good ageing potential. (JA)" (4/2017) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine's fruit is already delicious, full of black-currant and plum flavors. It's a structured, dense wine, yet full of fruit. (RV)" (4/2017) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "This captures the essence of the vintage, with a mix of dark plum and currant flavor ...Read More »

2016 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a dense wine, full of rich fruit, bitter orange and apricot. Its ripe fruit is balanced by the intense botrytis while it is also freshened by the wine's acidity. This is a great wine with a long-term future. (RV)" (4/2017) 95-96 points James Suckling: "This has so much botrytis/spice character. Dried-mushroom powder as well. Full yet round and gorgeous. Exuberant softness. Very sweet and complex. Complete Sauternes." (4/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 De Suduiraut has a complex bouquet with rich and honeyed fruit, superb mineral tension and wonderful detail.
