1997 Potensac, Médoc Top Pick!
1997 Potensac, Médoc

Jancis Robinson: "Dark glowing crimson. Grunty, very concentrated. Arguably the miracle here is to find a wine from Jean-Hubert Delon under £20. And one you could actually think of drinking too. This should certainly appeal to classicists—especially those knowledgeable enough to know it’s related to the most expensive super second of all, Léoville Las Cases." (9/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A soft, cedary, herbaceous, but pleasant, round, elegant style of wine, with berry and red currant fruit, and a smooth finish... (R)=P)" (4/2000) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good ruby-red. Smoky aromas of plum and leather. Lush, smooth and ...Read More »

Citrus and floral notes come forward in an attractive, aromatic white to drink young. There is a lot to like in this expressive Sauvignon Blanc from proprietors Denis et Florence Dubourdieu.

2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "Stunning aromas of licorice, blackcurrants, minerals, dried rose petals and wet earth. Full body, incredibly intense fruit yet this remains compacted and toned with tannins. Long, long finish. What a wine." (3/2015) 94-97 points Vinous: "The 2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the richest, most explosive wines of the year. Scents of blackberry jam, crème de cassis, graphite, pencil shavings, exotic spices and lavender meld into a plush core of super-ripe fruit in a decidedly opulent, full-throttle Ducru that is strikingly beautiful today. The 2014 is likely to require many years t ...Read More »

2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "The strength of this Pontet Canet is very impressive, making it structured and tannic with a long and intense finish. Yet it turns to bright and vivid fruits. Full body. A modern classic. It builds on the palate." (4/2015) 93-96 points Vinous: "Deep and translucent to the core, the 2014 Pontet-Canet is one of the sexiest wines of the vintage. A host of violets, lavender, mint, spices, new leather and plums grace the palate in an utterly exquisite wine endowed with magnificent yet understated depth and crystalline purity. This is without question one of the highlights of the vin ...Read More »

2000 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien Top Pick!
2000 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The plushest, most ostentatious and dramatic of all the Leovilles in 2000, this wine is already sumptuous, displaying some nuances in its huge nose of vanilla bean, black chocolate, jammy black cherries, cassis, and graphite in a flamboyant style. Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine and a complete contrast to the extracted behemoth of Leoville Barton and the backward, classic Leoville Las Cases. The Poyferre’s low acidity, sweet tannin and an already gorgeous mouthfeel make it a wine to drink now as well as over ...Read More »

1986 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien Top Pick!
1986 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

95 points Wine Spectator: "A monster in its infancy. Almost black in color, with intense cassis, herb and mint aromas and superrich, dense cassis and licorice flavors. May last forever. --Ducru-Beaucaillou vertical." (10/1992) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "At 16 years of age, this wine continues to taste more like a 5 to 7-year-old Bordeaux. The color is a handsome dark ruby with just a bit of pink at the edge. The wine exhibits sweet red and black currant fruit intermixed with wet stones, spice, and flowers. Medium-bodied and still moderately tannic, but very concentrated, this firmly structured, slightly auste ...Read More »

2014 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. The wine is serious, darkly structured and firm in character, packed with tannins that lend a very dry feel. Fragrant fruitiness and intense acidity shine through for a very fine wine, likely to age over several decades." (4/2015) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "Features a youthfully muscular edge, but remains elegant despite the heft, with a core of plum, red currant and raspberry fruit, guided by supple tannins and backed by subtle tobacco and spice hints. A light bay thread chimes in on the finish, while a juniper detail adds a pleasant underpinning. Displays admirable ...Read More »

2003 Latour, Pauillac Top Pick!
2003 Latour, Pauillac

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Administrator Frederic Engerer says the 2003 is 'the sexiest Latour ever made.' He also described it as 'the 1990 without any brettanomyces.' I loved this wine from the barrel and was fortunate enough to be able to purchase a small quantity, enjoying every bottle I have had. A profound example of Chateau Latour, the full-bodied, opulent 2003 is already performing well at age eleven, which is somewhat atypical. The pH is a relatively high 3.8, which also indicates low acidity. The wine is very ripe, but not over-ripe, offers great freshness, and lots of c ...Read More »

2013 Margaux, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Margaux, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. For the first time, there is no Merlot in this wine. Cabernet Sauvignon is complemented by small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It’s a lovely, aromatic wine, on the delicate side, with sustained black currant fruits and gentle tannins. The aftertaste is deliciously fruity and fine." (4/2014) 94-95 points James Suckling: "Spectacular for the vintage. This is a wine that I want to buy. The aromas are like rose petals and perfume. Speechless. Palate is full body, yet refined and beautiful with perfectly polished tannins. It’s wonderfully balanced." (4/2014) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2 ...Read More »

2012 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac Top Pick!
2012 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Intense black currant fruitiness makes this wine unabashedly forward. The palate bears weighty tannins behind that fruit, resulting in a wine that is already quite balanced and structured." (4/2013) 92 points James Suckling: "Wonderful nose of wet earth, mushrooms and berries. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Sleek and polished. Needs two to three years of bottle age to soften." (2/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a wine built on finesse. Intensely aromatic and nuanced, the 2012 is decidedly medium in body and structure, yet ...Read More »

2014 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a huge wine. Rich, powerful and dense, yet remarkably precise, the 2014 boasts extraordinary density and fabulous balance. Scents of black fruits, graphite, smoke, tobacco, grilled herbs and incense meld into a huge core of fruit. Hints of black cherry jam, wild flowers and mint add an attractive aromatic top register on the close. Explosive and virile in style, the 2014 appears to have the pedigree to age well for several decades. It is without question one of the wines of the year. The blend is 65% Cab ...Read More »

2014 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a highly aromatic wine, with a superbly dense structure and firm, brooding tanning. On top of the drying tannins are finely polished fruit, followed by a fresh, vibrant finish. Overall, it boasts a great combination of structure and fruit." (4/2015) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "This captures the pure, distilled essence of Cabernet Sauvignon, with a racy core of red and black currant fruit that almost struts alone, but there's ample roasted apple wood and iron deeply buried in the background, which should emerge with time. The finish has terrific delineation, wit ...Read More »

It has a concentrated color and serious tannins that are presented in a stylish package of smooth, polished fruitiness and ample acidity. It is certainly for long-term aging." (4/2015) 96-97 points James Suckling: "The aromas to this wine are enchanting with blackberries, dried flowers, blueberries, citrus and stones. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and bright acidity. Citrus skin undertones. Very, very long. Structured. This is 13.8 alcohol meaning the Cabernet was incredibly ripe for the vintage. Yet ...Read More »

2014 La Mission Haut-Brion Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 La Mission Haut-Brion Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2014 is a blend of 54% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, picked between 15 September and 8 October raised in 55% new oak. It has a very fresh and precise bouquet, not one that marches out the barrack in confidence fashion, but rather unfolds piece-by-piece in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a structured and neatly placed opening: a little masculine for La Mission Haut-Brion at this stage, linear and focused, maintaining precision rather than aiming from power and roundness. This is a sophi ...Read More »

It is a fine wine, while showing the lightness of the year." (4/2014) 92-93 points James Suckling: "An aromatic wine with a delicacy and suppleness that is exceptional for the vintage with blackberry, mineral, spice and flower character. Very fine tannins. Seamless structure. It’s a wine that makes you want to drink it with its pleasant savory, fruity character. Harmonious."
