2016 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This is superb: a triumph for the vintage considering how complicated it was in St.-Emilion. Elegance with power. Full-bodied, intense and forthright. Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015." (4/2016) 91-94 points Vinous: "*Top 30 Bordeaux Values of 2016 Vintage* The 2016 Tour Saint Christophe is gorgeous. Exotic, ripe and voluptuous, the 2016 possesses striking aromatics and plenty of presence. Smoke, grilled herbs, inky dark fruit, crème de cassis and leather are beautifully delineated in the glass. This is the first recent vintage I can remember tasting that is not ...Read More »

Full-bodied, beautifully crafted and precise. This is a wine that really grabs your attention. The agility and power are more than impressive. Wow is the word."

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.

Emmanuel Cruse told me how they suffered less rain on the weekend of 12 and 13 September, 32 millimeters being less than in the northern Médoc. Cropped between 21 September and 6 October, it has a very pure and sensual bouquet that takes time to open up, eventually offering black cherries and blueberry, a marin ...Read More »

2016 Les Pagodes de Cos, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. The tannins are really deceptive in this wine. It is sumptuous and elegant at the same time. The black currant fruit and acidity are a foil for the powerful tannic structure. Balanced and rich in fruit, it is ready for some serious, but not too long, aging. (RV)" (4/2017) 93-94 points James Suckling: "The brightness and focus to this second wine of Cos are certainly impressive. You can see the quality.

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.

Most serious Alter Ego ever. More inner Ego now!" (4/2016) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a beautifully perfumed wine. It has ripe black fruits that shoot through the richness.

2014 d'Armailhac, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "Very minerally, silky and refined with a full body, firm tannins and currants, stones and citrus. Racy and fine. This has a little more Merlot in the blend but is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon as always. One of the best Armailhacs in a long time." (3/2015) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2014 d'Armailhac is absolutely delicious. Dark red cherry, plum, pomegranate, spice and floral notes are bold and exuberant in the glass.

2015 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

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 »

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

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 »

(3/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Lanessan has quite a punchy, fruit-driven bouquet with well-integrated oak, a Lanessan with more sense of purpose than I have found in recent vintages.

2014 Figeac, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* The classic blend for Figeac with its 32% of Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Cabernet Franc gives a beautifully dense wine with great tannins. The wine is perfumed while the complex tannins are finely cushioned by the generous black fruits and acidity. It is a wine for long-term aging. Drink from 2026. (RV)" (4/2017) 96 points James Suckling: "The aromas of blackcurrants and fresh forest floor are evocative. Oyster shells and stones. Turns to blackcurrants.

2014 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "The purity and clarity to the nose of this wine are really exceptional with crushed berries, cherries and currants. Fruit and density are so impressive, yet this is so linear on the center palate, which gives it direction and focus. Fabulous." (2/2017) 96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pavie Macquin is just as sensual from bottle as it was from barrel. Silky, gracious and expressive, the 2014 has it all. Black cherry, plum, smoke, mocha and a host of dark-toned flavors all blossom in the glass. The 2014 offers a striking combination of power and finesse, with plenty of power to bu ...Read More »

(2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Barde-Haut has turned out beautifully. Dark cherry, mocha, spice, leather and tobacco flesh out in the glass.

2014 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

But not for long: the bold black fruits are insistent and are going to be delicious. (RV)" (4/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "So perfumed with a freshness and beauty that is amazing.

(3/2016) 95-97 points Vinous: "The 2015 Malartic Lagravière is a total rock star. Deep, powerful and exotic, the 2015 sweeps across the palate with stunning richness and intensity. The creamy voluptuousness of the vintage is on full display. The blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc works beautifully here.

2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, matured in 75% new oak and was picked between September 18 until October 4 (although the 'real' picking commenced from September 21). Now, Grand-Puy-Lacoste is often quite 'aloof' at this early juncture, but that is not the case with the 2015. This is more approachable aromatically, beautifully defined, thanks to that expressive Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin and finely tuned acidity (pH 3.68).

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.

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Rieussec 2014 is a blend of 93% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle, picked from 15 to 29 October through seven tries, the yield half the normal crop at 13 hectoliters per hectare. Charles Chevalier, how lest we forget started here and not chez Lafite, told me that the beginning of September had overripe grapes with passerillage – the second part had very good levels of botrytis. The blend is from these two parts. The bouquet is very well defined with crystal clear honeysuckle and white peach scents. The palate is beautifully balan ...Read More »

2014 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "A big black-cherry and bitter-chocolate nose leads into a rich, concentrated palate, where the fruit easily holds sway over the powerful, dry tannins. It’s these that drive everything along right through to the assertive, slightly earthy finish; impressive long-term stuff!" (2/2017) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a powerful wine, made to age for a long time, from this estate which is performing in top gear. Complex tannins and dark fruits both make their presence felt. It has weight, ripeness and a dense structure. A great success, it is unlikely to be ready t ...Read More »

2014 Echo de Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of currants and fresh herbs. Medium to full body, a soft and juicy texture and a long finish. Juicy yet tight. Excellent second wine. Better in 2020." (2/2017) 91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Echo de Lynch-Bages is dense, pliant and quite deep for a second wine. Élevage has softened some of the rough edges that the wine showed in its youth. Today, I am surprised by how primary and dense it is. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2014 for at least a few years. There is little in the way of aromatic or flavor development at this stage, and the wine feels very closed. T ...Read More »

2015 Bel-Air, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Bel-Air, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "Lots of black olive, blackberry and stone aromas and flavors. Full and savory. Big wine. This is a crazy small producer you should find out about. Excellent terrior in Pomerol." (3/2016) 88-90 points Vinous: "The 2015 Bel-Air (Pomerol) offers notable breadth and power, but also has enough freshness to balance things out. The flavors are dark, bold and incisive throughout. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, mocha, torrefaction, spice, new leather and menthol all meld together in a sumptuous, racy Pomerol that will drink well early. Frédéric Massie and Romain Bocchio are the consulti ...Read More »

2016 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This is superb: a triumph for the vintage considering how complicated it was in St.-Emilion. Elegance with power. Full-bodied, intense and forthright. Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015." (4/2017) 91-94 points Vinous: "*Top 30 Bordeaux Values in 2016* The 2016 Tour Saint Christophe is gorgeous. Exotic, ripe and voluptuous, the 2016 possesses striking aromatics and plenty of presence. Smoke, grilled herbs, inky dark fruit, crème de cassis and leather are beautifully delineated in the glass. This is the first recent vintage I can remember tasting that is not overext ...Read More »

2014 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*** Cellar Selection *** This wine, with its massive tannins and rich fruit, is obviously set for a long life. It does have the contrast of fresh black-currant acidity to give it a lift. But with the power behind it, the wine will develop slowly. (RV)" (2/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "Very aromatic with cherries and blackberries. Hints of flowers. Full body, lightly chewy yet ultra-fine tannins and a fresh finish. Tangy and delicious. Racy." (2/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Leoville Barton is one of the must-buys of the vintage. Now in bottle, it has a very pure bouquet that gains intensity in t ...Read More »

2015 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Back In Stock!
2015 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This is really exceptional this year. Full body, very velvety tannins, wet earth, mushroom and currant character. Very stoney. Very long and flavorful. Greatest wine in the history of the estate." (3/2016) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine is all class. Nuanced, delicate and silky in the glass, the 2015 speaks to the finesse that is such a signature of Margaux. All the elements are in the right place. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and floral notes mesh together in an effortless, gracious wine with a bright future. This is the first vintage Stephane Derenoncourt and ...Read More »

2015 Enclos Tourmaline, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Enclos Tourmaline, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

98-99 points James Suckling: "This is fabulous with superb concentration of ultra-fine and ripe and bright fruit. Walnuts, blackberry, black truffles and wet earth. Full body. Powerful finish. Amazing tiny production wine in the heart of Pomerol. 1 hectare. 3,000 bottles. 100% merlot. A wine to compete with Le Pin. Watch this estate!" (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 L'Enclos Tourmaline comes from a one-hectare parcel directly opposite Clinet and owned by Peter Kwok, part of what appears to be his expanding "empire" on the Right Bank. Readers should be aware that this particular vintage includes a ne ...Read More »

2015 La Cabanne, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A rich and round red with lots of dried fruits, spice and dark chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body, flavorful and rich. Classic styled red. Best ever from here?" (3/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 La Cabanne is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Proprietor François Estager told me that this was the first vintage were he has not used any sulfur (one of a few that are moving in that direction). Tasted on three occasions, the nose is offers brambly black fruit mixed with wild hedgerow and cold stone, certainly more sophisticated than recent vintages, with impres ...Read More »

2005 Latour, Pauillac (2017 Ex-Chateau Release) (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2005 Latour, Pauillac (2017 Ex-Chateau Release) (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "A very complex nose of lavender, currants, spices, and hot stones. Full and dense on the palate, with a very tight structure. The tannins have a perfect polish to their density, and the finish is very intense, with wonderful fruit and truffle character. This turns almost decadent, with tremendous energy and a constantly changing profile. This is a very challenging wine to get to know, please leave this for at least ten years." (2/2011) 100 points Wine & Spirits: "How rare to confront a wine of this inner strength and perfect form. Grown at a 116-acre vineyard at the southern border ...Read More »

2016 Beaumont, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival) New!
2016 Beaumont, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine comes from an estate that is showing great improvement, the wine showing power and concentration. Brimming with delicious black fruits, it will age well and is likely to be ready after 2025. (RV)" (4/2017) 91-92 points James Suckling: "A juicy and pretty wine with berry and chocolate character, a medium body and a clean finish. Clearly better than the 2015." (4/2017)

2014 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "If you want to know what St.-Estèphe smells like, this is it. Aromas of spices, black truffles, forest floor, dried strawberries and tar. It’s full-bodied yet pinpointed on the palate with fabulous density and richness. It’s opulent but in a reserved and checked way. This needs at least five or six years to come around, but it’s already fantastic. What harmony and structure. Try in 2022 if you can keep your hands off it!" (2/2017) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is an immensely dense wine that is going to be a classic. The dark tannins are still lined with wood ag ...Read More »
