2004 Malescasse, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2004 Malescasse, Haut-Médoc

Decanter: "Lean but pure blackcurrant nose with attractive touch of mint. Ripe tannins, discreet, fine acidity, balanced and graceful." (10/2007) Jancis Robinson: "*Good Value* 53% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot. Still-lively ruby. Lightly sweet, digestive biscuit nose. Fully resolved tannins with a bit of life – fruit and freshness. Mellow pleasure at a decent price. Long and extremely well behaved. Well bought. Drink to 2022. (JR)" (4/2017) Wine Spectator: "Shows currant and hints of dried flowers on the nose. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. ...Read More »

2004 Nairac, Barsac (Previously $30)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Clean, ripe and pure on the nose, with stone fruit and citrus aromas complicated by minerals, clove and vanillin oak. At once fresh and ripe in the mouth, with intense flavors of apricot nectar and orange. Finishes ripe and long, with a strong spice character to the fruit flavors, and firm spine. Very promising." (7/2006) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Chateau Nairac is closed and reticent on the nose with light pineapple and citrus peel scents. The palate is nicely rounded and viscous on the entry. There are light scents of orange peel and dried apricot and a touch ...Read More »

2012 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves (Previously $16) Top Pick!
2012 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves (Previously $16)

Ch. L’Avocat is from the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation. I met Nicola Allison at a small conference of Women from Bordeaux and Napa Valley in Napa earlier. She followed my advice by sending her wines to our hotel in April to be tasted and Clyde and I liked them. I followed up by visiting the estate almost 8 weeks later and was shown the gravely, plateau vineyards by her husband Sean who manages the vines. The vineyards were purchased by the Allisons in 2002; the fruit was pr... Read More »

Wine Spectator: "This has a nice mix of plump lemon curd and white peach flavors mixed with brisk thyme and chive notes. Fleur de sel edge on the finish. Drink now. (JM, Web-2016)"

2014 de France Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Previously $25)

91 points James Suckling: "Lots of hot-stone and currant aromas follow through to a medium to full body, firm and chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Minerally. Better in 2020." (2/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Impressive density of fruit here - bold and powerful and multi-layered. This deserves bottle age to develop - the structural balance will last a good few years, and the ripeness is spot on. (RH)" (10/2016) Vinous: "The 2014 de Franc is a supple, fruit-driven red to drink over the next few years. Super-ripe cherries, mocha, new oak and sweet spices meld together in a juicy, mouth-filling wine with plenty of near- ...Read More »

2012 Le Petit Cheval, St-Emilion (Previously $190) Top Pick!
2012 Le Petit Cheval, St-Emilion (Previously $190)

94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Petit Cheval is striking for many reasons, not the least of which is a very high percentage of Cabernet Franc that gives the wine much of its aromatic presence and overall depth. Deceptively medium-bodied in structure, the 2012 possesses remarkable balance and harmony. There is little question the 2012 Petit Cheval is better than the Grand Vin at many other properties. Rose petal, lavender, violet and mint notes leave a lasting impression on the finish. (AG)" (1/2016) 92 points James Suckling: "A refined and firm red with dried cherries, spices and coffee beans. Full to med ...Read More »

2007 Climens, Barsac (Previously $150)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. Chateau Climens always tends to go into its shell after bottling, which is probably why I was not dishing out an even higher score to this still, spellbinding Barsac. The 2007 is endowed with a lovely bouquet: very pure with honey, a touch of orange-blossom and a touch of quince. The palate is very well-balanced with great purity and a dash of spice as well as a lovely viscous, botrytis-laden finish that possesses awesome weight and persistency. This is a slice of heaven in a glass, but it definitely needs time to r ...Read More »

2014 Poesia, St-Emilion (Previously $50)

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Poesia is a powerful wine with serious density and richness. Black cherry, plum, spice and leather emerge with great reluctance. This packed, structured Saint-Émilion is going to need at least a few years to fully unwind. Even so, it is both impressive and promising. Helene Garcin and winemaker Alain Raynaud have done a terrific job here. The blend is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. (AG)" (2/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Poesia 2014 was picked from 8 October until the 14 October, finishing with the Cabernet Franc. It is a blend of 30% Cabernet Franc and 70 ...Read More »

1996 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full red-ruby. Explosive aromas of boysenberry juice, espresso and smoky oak. Thick and lush, with terrific volume in the mouth; harmonious acidity gives the flavors clarity and brightness. Very long, sweet finish. (ST)" (6/1999) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Rauzan-Segla now at 20 years of age has an "airy," perfumed bouquet with wilted rose petals, undergrowth and dried orange peel scents. What it lacks is a sense of presence. Perhaps it is enduring a dumb phase? The palate is much better than the aromatics, showing fine balance and crisp tannins. The acidity is well judged ...Read More »

2007 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 2007 Château Doisy-Védrines does not achieve the same level of precision as the 2006 on the nose, although there is plenty of botrytis here with scents of melted candle wax and white peach. The palate is vibrant on the entry with impressive weight: hints of orange peel and apricot with a tender, almost understated finish. This improves in the glass, gaining more complexity and nuance and yet never quite demonstrating the sheer ambition as the 2009. Yet I notice even within the limited amount of time at my disposal some meliorat ...Read More »

1990 Gilette "Crème de Tête" Sauternes (Previously $230)

98 points Wine Spectator: "A jaw-dropper, with quince, persimmon, mango, fig and blood orange marmalade notes providing a kaleidoscopic experience as this moves along, slowly pulling in more ginger, marzipan, green fig and date notes. The finish is so seamless it feels like glistening porcelain. Drink now through 2040." (12/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 Chateau Gilette Creme de Tete is the latest release from the Medeville family. It has a curious bouquet that is minty and full of dried white flowers, but it feels contained at the moment, the aromas demanding more time in bottle to coalesce. The p ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan(1.5L) (Previously $200)

94 points James Suckling: "Extremely complex with cinnamon, dried fruits and dried flowers. Full body, super-integrated tannins and a silky, polished finish. Very impressive. Better in 2018 but very beautiful already." (2/2015) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This structured wine with big, bold red fruits offers ripe acidity, a dense texture and considerable concentration. It also has the hallmark freshness of the vintage that balances the strong aging potential. Drink from 2022." (5/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very floral and elegant with raspberry and blackcurrant fruit mixed with toasty oak/vanillin, followed by a m ...Read More »

2013 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** Part of the select group of impressive wines from this year, this wine is ripe, rich and firmly structured. Black-currant fruitiness forms the base for solid tannins and a concentrated texture. The hints of wood-aging need to soften. Drink from 2022. (RV)" (3/2016) 91-92 points James Suckling: "This shows a solid core of fruit here with a wonderful asphalt, berry and mineral character. Full body, with excellent tannins, fruit and acid balance. Impressive. The extra dose of Cabernet Sauvignon at 85% and no Cabernet Franc makes this wine exceptional for the vintage. ...Read More » 

2013 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "The production is tiny, yet the potential of this wine is enormous, with its tight, textured structure that is still so young. It is opulent and generous while still keeping a tight rein on its emotions. A steely core is surrounded by fruit that has hints of apricots as well as citrus. This will be a very fine wine but it needs many years, so wait until 2022. (RV)" (3/2016) 95 points James Suckling: "This is very, very long and intense with velvety tannins and plenty of sweet tobacco, cedar and dark berry aromas and flavors. Already open and delicious to drink. This is difficult to ...Read More »

2010 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac(1.5L) (Previously $140)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the chateaus owned by négociant Borie-Manoux, Lynch-Moussas has produced a fine, stylish 2010, which is firmly based on Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit is rich and ripe, dominated by a blackberry note and underpinned by tannins. This is a chateau to watch. (RV)" (2/2013) 92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of fresh herbs and berry with chocolate powder undertones. Full and very velvety with a lovely finish. Needs at least five years to soften." (2/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 is a strong effort and one of their best wines in a generation or more. Some toasty oak seems relatively strong, but not ...Read More »

2014 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (1.5L) (Previously $125)

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrants and sweet tobacco. Wet earth to boot. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften. Try drinking in 2021." (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a structured wine that still has serious layers of ripe fruit and rich tannins. The black currant from the Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced by the jammy richness of the delicious Merlot. It’s an impressive wine that continues the progress of this estate, owned by Lafite-Rothschild. Drink from 2024.

2012 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac (1.5L) (Previously $120)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. There's a dry character to this wine. It's concentrated in tannins with a bitterness that leads to a new-wood and spice character. The fruit is still in the background here. (RV)" (4/2013) 90 points James Suckling: "A red with blueberry, spice and toasted-oak character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a fruity, decadent finish. 79% cabernet sauvignon and 21% merlot. Better in 2018." (2/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another relatively obscure Pauillac, although a classified growth in the 1855 classification, Lynch-Moussas has long been owned by the Castéja family. With soft, juicy tannins ...Read More »

1998 Clos de l'Oratoire, St-Emilion (6L)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An opaque blue/purple color is accompanied by a sensational bouquet of melted fudge, plums, Asian spices, blackberries, and prunes. Smoky, barbeque-like spices also emerge with airing. Full-bodied, super-extracted, rich, pure, and mouth-saturating, this large-scaled effort can be consumed with pleasure, but it will age for two decades. (RP)" (4/2001) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of black olive and blackberry, with a hint of grilled meat. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, rich finish. Very powerful and rich. Just starting to come around. (Web Only 2009)" Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby ...Read More »
