2010 Lestruelle, Médoc (Previously $15) Top Pick!
2010 Lestruelle, Médoc (Previously $15)

Jancis Robinson: "Pleasant floral bouquet, mingled with red cherries, red currants, and sweet spices. Firm but ripe tannins giving illusion of sweetness. Beautifully balanced. Not short of finesse at all." (9/2012) Wine Enthusiast: "This is a mint- and licorice-flavored wine, with its wood aging prominent at this stage. Full bodied, rich and concentrated, it shows strong signs of extraction that give it a bitter finish. Age this tannic wine for 2-3 years or more." (3/2013) Wine Spectator: "Primal and direct, with blueberry and loganberry notes backed by a charcoal edge which lingers through the finish. Shows l ...Read More »

2012 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A decent effort in this tough vintage for some of the Médoc wines, Lanessan’s 2012 has some nice suppleness to the tannin, cranberry and black cherry fruit, plum and blackcurrants. It is medium-bodied with earth, herbs and spice. Drink it over the next decade. (RP)" (4/2015) K&L Notes: * A very fruity and tasty style. Another great value from what Robert Parker calls a "consistent property that turns out wines that are often very close to classified-growth quality."

2011 Capbern Gasqueton, St-Estèphe (Previously $25)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm and structured, this wine, produced by the same team as classed growth Calong-Ségur, has solid architecture. It does also have fine fruitiness and acidity but it is the shape that impresses. Given time, it will develop into an elegant wine. Drink from 2018." (5/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Vanilla-laced black fruit. Firm, chewy, very dark but needs time. Savoury, high acid, pretty hard work at the moment but should come round." (1/2015) Wine Spectator: "This has a brambly feel, with toasted spice, tobacco leaf, dark plum and crushed black currant notes rolled together at the core. A brambly, ...Read More »

2005 Valandraud, St-Emilion (Previously $200) Top Pick!
2005 Valandraud, St-Emilion (Previously $200)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This may be the most prodigious wine Jean-Luc Thunevin and his partner Murielle Andraud have made to date. Inky purple to the rim at age ten, this wine’s explosive aromatics include espresso, chocolate, plum, blackberry and cassis. The oak is well-hidden behind an extravagant, full-bodied, multi-layered palate. Stunningly pure, super-intense and just beginning to move into middle adolescence, the “Bad Boy” of Bordeaux has produced a legend in 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035.(RP)" (6/2015)95 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby in color, with intense aromas of blackberry, mineral ...Read More »

2011 Bourgneuf, Pomerol (Previously $40)

91 points James Suckling: "A wine with a pretty ripe-fruit character and ripe, chewy tannins. Some toasted oak as well. I think it needs another two or three years to soften the tannins and bring it all together. Serious 2011 Pomerol." (2/2014) 90-91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of new wood mark this wine. On the palate, the tannins are gentle, with flavors of ripe black plum, nutmeg and milk chocolate." (4/2012)90 points Wine Spectator: "On the chewy side, with ganache and Black Forest cake notes leading the way, followed by loam, plum sauce, roasted fig and singed alder flavors that form the core and finish. Should drop the chewy edge ...Read More »

2012 Louvie, St-Emilion (Previously $19)

There's a good chance that you will love the Louvie for its very fruity character. This soft and elegant blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc offers plenty of bright berry aromas with a dash of tobacco and coffee. Of course, you will also love the price!

2011 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Previously $90)

94 points James Suckling: "A wine that has a beautiful depth of fruit, with currants, minerals and dried flowers on the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied, with super-integrated tannins that last for minutes. This is muscular yet polished. Extremely well done for the vintage. Better in 2017." (2/2014)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The grand vin, the 2011 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is another great successes (and that’s saying something after the remarkable duo of 2009 and 2010 as well as the brilliant 2008). This wine exhibits a dense purple color along with a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, mulberries, licorice and ...Read More »

2011 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (1.5L) (Previously $330)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is characterized by both structure and rich fruitiness. A dark, smoky character brings out the solid tannins that underlie the black currant fruitiness and the balance. Although it doesn’t have power, an intensity gives a flavor that lasts in the mouth. Drink this wine from 2018." (5/2014) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest second wines now being made, Les Forts de Latour comes from the same parcel every year. The 2011 is composed of 61.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38.5% Merlot. Forty-three percent of the Latour production was relegated to this cuvee. Its opaque pur ...Read More »

1982 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion (Previously $210)

Jancis Robinson: "Very dark crimson. Bit fragile. Very, very dry and dusty." (7/2002) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full, dark red, with an amber rim. Rather syrupy aromas of coffee, mocha and alcohol. Dense and thick but somewhat weedy; fairly penetrating and concentrated, but beginning to lose its fruit...." (7/2002)

2009 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien Top Pick!
2009 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien

99 points James Suckling: "Amazing aromas of cep mushrooms, dark fruits and fresh flowers, follow through to a full body and super velvety tannins with a long long finish. Gorgeous structure to this. Sexy and almost decadent." (2/2012)98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Leoville Las Cases may be the most open-knit and forward Las Cases I have tasted to date. Analytically, it is high in tannin and the alcohol is 13.8%, nearly a record at this estate. This blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc was showing brilliantly at the 2009 tasting I did in Hong Kong and at a later tastin ...Read More »

1982 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Previously $220)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Backward and structured, though a bit coarse. Brilliant, deep ruby color, with a hint of garnet on the edge. Currant, floral and berry aromas. Big and chewy, with plenty of fruit and tannins." (11/1998) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A solidly made effort, the 1982 Pontet Canet reveals some pink at the edge, but it remains a medium-bodied wine offering hints of menthol and red as well as black currants. Although it lacks concentration, the sensuality and suppleness provided by the vintage character are still appealing. (RP)" (6/2009)

2010 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Administrator Christian Seeley thinks the 2010 is the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron he has ever made, equaling some of the estate’s colossal wines from vintages such as 1989 and 1990. It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January. Opaque purple, with loads of charcoal, licorice, incense and some exotic Asian spices along with abundant cassis liqueur, blackberry and hints of roasted coffee and spring flowers, it is full-bodied and opulent, with relatively high tannins, but they have sweetened up considerably and seem less aggr ...Read More »

1986 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1986 possesses outstanding richness, a deep color, medium body, a graceful, harmonious texture, and superb length. The penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit is a hallmark of this wine. Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic, as well as medium to full-bodied, with awesome extraction of fruit, this Lafite has immense potential. Patience is required. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2030. (RP)" (1/1998)94 points Wine Spectator: "A firm, young wine. Dark ruby color. Intense aromas of blackberry and mint. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Still ne ...Read More »

2000 Chapelle d'Ausone, St-Emilion (Previously $200)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Consumers should take a look at the 2000 Chapelle d'Ausone. This wine is priced at 10% of its bigger sibling. The tightly-structured, mineral-infused 2000 Chapelle d'Ausone exhibits outstanding concentration as well as depth in addition to floral, blackberry, and blueberry aromas and flavors. Deep and rich, it is better than many Ausones produced in the seventies, sixties, and fifties ... believe it or not! Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025." (4/2003)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines redcurrant, raspberry and minerals. Quite suave and supple on the front hal ...Read More »

2010 l'Eglise Clinet, Pomerol (Previously $500)

98 points James Suckling: "Sweet berries with hints of incense and spices on the nose with black truffles. Very ripe but not over-the-top. This is full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a smoky wood and mushroom undertone. It's dense and impressive yet very balanced. I like it, slightly better quality than the 2009. Give the wine five or six years of bottle age to soften before opening." (2/2013)96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine will likely be a major superstar with about 10-15 years of cellaring. It was one of the more closed and difficult wines to penetrate and one of probably only a dozen or so 2010s that ...Read More »

2011 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac Top Pick!
2011 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The wine shows the power typical of a Lafite but within the context of the fruity 2011 vintage. The immensely dense tannic structure gives the wine a solid feel that is lifted by so much ripe black currant and berry fruits. At the back, the wine has a more brooding, dark character that suggests great aging potential. Drink this wine from 2019." (5/2014)94 points James Suckling: "Love the nose on this, with sweet tobacco, delicate currant, cedar and blackberry. Full body with integrated tannins and a juicy, fruity, subtle finish. The texture to this wine is beautiful. Better than I ...Read More »

1994 Valandraud, St-Emilion (Previously $200)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Valandraud is one of the most interesting stories in Bordeaux. The wine is made from an unheralded terroir owned by the young, obsessive/compulsive, exuberantly passionate Monsieur Thunevin. He produces a Bordeaux from tiny yields and ripe fruit, ages it in 100% new oak, and refuses to fine or filter prior to bottling. Sadly, Valandraud has become the darling of speculators, largely because of (1) its fabulous quality, and (2) its limited production. There were only 4,200 bottles produced in 1993, 8,998 in 1994, and 11,400 in 1995. It is easy to criticiz ...Read More »

Subdued, pure aromas of red fruits and cedar, with a slightly candied nuance. Supple on entry, then subtle and fresh..." (7/2002) Wine Spectator: "Medium-ruby color, with a garnet edge. Fresh blackberry and mineral aromas. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a light finish." (11/1998) K&L Notes: Chateau Lafite's second wine, now called Carruades de Lafite.

1979 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (6L) (high shoulder, soiled label, capsule missing) (Previously $900)

92 points Wine Spectator: "(no tasting note given)" (5/1990) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at The Arches. The Cos d’Estournel ’79 has a very Pauillac-like bouquet with graphite and mint notes, the Cabernet Sauvignon firmly in control and offering a pleasing sense of symmetry. The palate is tannic and masculine, dry and a little austere and yet maintaining the harmony one would expect from a famous address as this. There is a touch of balsam towards the finish that is rustic and a little frayed around the seams, suggesting that this Saint Estephe ought to be consumed in the near future. Tasted Februa ...Read More »
