2014 Montrose, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Montrose 2014 is a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot that represents 47% of the total production. It was picked from mid-September via five or six tries through the vineyard. The aromatics represent a clear step in quality from the second wine, attired with far more precision and focus, much more purity with scents of blackberry, boysenberry and blue fruit, now with touches of violet and vanilla. It is beautifully defined and actually, at least at this juncture, closely aligned with Cos d’Estou ...Read More »

2014 Phélan-Ségur, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "The initial wood flavors in this wine rapidly give way to rich fruit. Spice and black-plum flavors are built by a firmly tannic superstructure.

Tobacco, new leather, menthol, cloves, earthiness are all laced together, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that stands out most. The 2014 finishes with notable energy and an invigorating sense of freshness. I won't be surprised if the 2014 comes towards the higher end of this range once bottled.

Stretches out, with a juicy feel, while orange blossom and white peach accents fill in, imparting lift and cut. This packs a bit of power, but there’s lots of buried freshness as well.

96-98 points Vinous: "A dazzling, towering wine, the 2015 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has put on considerable weight in just the last few months. Today, the 2015 is vivid and intense, with a huge backbone of tannin and marvelous complexity. In 2015, the Cabernet Sauvignon is pushed higher as the Merlot was less consistent in its ripening. Graphite, charcoal, tobacco, crème de cassis and new leather are some of the signatures in what is shaping up to be a super-classic Pichon-Lalande. Simply put, the 2015 is one of the wines of the vintage. Tasted four times. (AG) ...Read More »

Perhaps best ever?" (5/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "With structured tannins and red berry notes, this is already showing an elegant structure.

2015 Beaumont, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

The palate is fresh and crisp with fine tannin, plus there is satisfying depth of fruit. It is your classic Bordeaux here, the kind of bottle you happily find on your dinner table and is finished down to the last drop. This is a well-made, straight down the line Claret that is probably overlooked these days. I would buy a couple of cases and just enjoy them with Claret-lovers over t ...Read More »

(RV)" (6/2016) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Paloumey is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. It has a perfumed, quite floral nose with rose petals infusing the red berry fruit, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe red berry fruit, a gentle grip in the mouth, fresh and vibrant with a dash of spice on the muscular finish. It ...Read More »

2015 Kirwan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fresh, ripe and fruity, this wine exhibits the fine character of a Margaux in 2015. Dense fruits and well-formed tannins give richness and a fresh character that is generously sustained by the tannins. (RV)" (4/2016) 93-94 points James Suckling: "So much character here of wet earth, mushroom and black currants. Full and powerful. Chewy tannins yet polished and very fine. Focused intense." (4/2016) 92 points Decanter: "A floral nose then showing all the class and natural old- vine concentration expected from Kirwan. A firmly classic wine. (SS)" (4/2016) 89-92 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh, with a light iron frame around the red currant and ...Read More »

2015 La Dauphine, Fronsac (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 La Dauphine is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Having vexed about the 2014 last year, the 2015 is a much "happier" sample, pure and quite elegant with black cherries, blueberry and cassis fruit, the new oak nicely integrated. 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. This is an excellent Fronsac, although it deserves 4-6 years in bottle. (NM)" (4/2016) 90-91 points James Suckling: "A Fronsac with lots of dried dark fruits and dark chocolate. Full body, velvet ...Read More »

2015 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is so sexy with superbly polished tannins that gives the wine super length and definition. Compacted and tight. Full body, tight yet flamboyant at the same time. Loving it." (3/2016) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Rauzan-Segla is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc cropped at 40 hl/ha between 10 September with the young Merlot vines and finishing with the Cabernet Sauvignon, which was picked between 22 September and 9 October. It is matured in 65% new oak for around 18 months. It has a very intense, almost crystalline bouque ...Read More »

2015 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Leoville Barton is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot picked between 19-22 September and 28 September until 5 October for the Merlot and Cabernet respectively. Matured in 60% new oak, it has a more compelling and intense bouquet than the 2015 Langoa Barton at this early stage, whereas in other years I have found the siblings closer together. It delivers some lovely blackberry, sage and cigar box scents. The palate is very refined with edgy tannin, beautifully balanced with seamlessly integrated oak. It is the classic Léoville-Barto ...Read More »

2014 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. 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." (4/2015) 96-99 points Wine Spectator: "This is beguiling, with acacia, jasmine and honeysuckle notes leading the way, followed by refined peach, tangerine and yellow apple fruit flavors. Very long, with a lemon chiffon note lingering delicately." (5/2015) 97-98 points James Suckling: "A crazy combination of botrytis, dried fruits and freshness. It's not the sweetne ...Read More »

2015 Puygueraud, Côtes de Francs (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "So pretty and refined already with dark fruit and floral character. Full body, very polished tannins and a precise and clean finish." (4/2016) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "This has a strong tobacco leaf edge, along with a dark tea note and a twinge of alder, all mixing with the medium-weight core of black cherry fruit. Shows good range and length. (JM)" (4/2016) 90 points Decanter: "The leading player in the appellation. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc with 5% Malbec.

2015 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-98 points Vinous: "A vivid, mesmerizing wine, the 2015 Léoville Las Cases is stunning in its beauty. Unusually rich and sumptuous for Las Cases, the 2015 possesses magnificent intensity and power from start to finish. Blackberry jam, charcoal, smoke, licorice and asphalt are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass, but the 2015 truly stands out for its vertical structure and overall intensity. At the same time, the 2015 is an unusually ripe, exotic Las Cases with much more flesh and voluptuousness in its curves than is the norm. In that sense, the 2015, is not ...Read More »

2015 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine is powerful with a smooth texture that masks dark tannins underneath. The fruit is sensual and generous with a fine, precise texture. This has so much fruit that it could be drunk young, but it certainly will age. (RV)" (4/2016) 94-96 points James Suckling: "A dense and compressed red with loads of blackberry and blueberry character. Fresh wet vineyard soil. Some mushroom too. Full and very tannic yet polished and very refined. Super balance and depth."

2014 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Vinous: "Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, new leather and licorice flesh out in the 2014 Clerc Milon. Deep and pliant to the core, the 2014 boasts notable resonance from start to finish. Although not a huge wine, the 2014 is long on finesse and class, with silky tannins that balance some of the more overt elements. Hints of cedar, tobacco, earthiness and herbs add the final shades of dimension. Today, the 2014 is quite inward and not fully expressive, but it is nevertheless absolutely impeccable. The blend is 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 11% Cabernet ...Read More »

2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Grand Puy Lacoste 2014 is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot between 25 September and 9 October at 33 hectoliter per hectare. The aromatics are not as immediate as the Haut-Batailley and demand more coaxing from the glass, but that comes with the territory. It unfurls with each swirl, black fruits at first, then GPL’s trademark, graphite and gravel scents storm into the room. Leaving the glass aside for 10 minutes there is a distant tang of shucked oyster shells. The palate is understated on the entry. This is not a powerhouse G ...Read More »

2015 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "Here is a Lafite with lots of muscle and tone. Very tannic and velvety textured. Full body, fresh acidity and a bright finish. Shows a tenderness at the end. Gorgeous." (4/2016) 94-97 points Vinous: "A dramatic, ample Lafite, the 2015 is also arrestingly beautiful and vivid. Expressive floral notes give the dark red and black flavors gorgeous aromatic lift. Today, the new oak is a bit pronounced, but otherwise, this is an exceptional wine. Rose petal, lavender, mint and purplish stone fruits add the last shades of detail.

2015 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This has phenolic tension and power with so much dried fruit character from pineapple to mango. Full, medium sweet and lively. Really excellent." (4/2016) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "A plumper, richer style than most Barsacs, with almond cream, ginger and hazelnut accents starting to develop alongside the orange, apricot and peach flavors. Offers a lovely feel. (JM)" (4/2016) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Doisy-Vedrines has quite an intense nose, perhaps less fat and honeyed than recent vintages, more finesse if not quite capturing the same level of details as the Doisy-Daëne this year. The palate is very ...Read More »

2014 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Vinous: "Exuberant and explosive, the 2014 Canon La Gaffelière is quite forward in style, yet all the elements seem to come together. An open, exotic bouquet melds into sweet red cherries, plums, spices and dried rose petals. The high percentage of Cabernet Franc gives the wine considerable aromatic lift and tons of personality. Floral and savory Franc notes abound on the super, long finish. The 2014 is 55% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)" (4/2015) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "A strong ganache element flows along with the dark currant and blackberry flavors. A charco ...Read More »
