2004 La Tempérance Prestige, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2004 La Tempérance Prestige, Haut-Médoc

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This Haut-Medoc sleeper of the vintage from Bordeaux visionary Bernard Magrez possesses copious quantities of black currant and cherry fruit as well as supple tannins presented in a medium-bodied, opulent style... (RP)" (6/2007) Wine Enthusiast: "Now mature, this is a powerful wine for the vintage. It has a spice note, plus tannins that are still present and likely to develop further. The flavors of truffle, gamy beef and beet are are testaments to the age of this wine. (RV)" (2/2013)

2004 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A top-notch effort from proprietress Helene Garcin, Haut-Bergey’s 2004 exhibits an evolved, cedary, smoky, tobacco, and sweet cherry-scented bouquet offered in a medium-bodied, supple-textured style. (RP)" (6/2007) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Sexy, rather wild aromas of roasted raspberry and game. Supple but firm-edged, with good grip to the raspberry and mineral flavors. There's good fruit here but limited fat and a restrained sweetness. (ST)" (6/2007) Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry and light tobacco. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. (JS, Web-2007)"

2005 Coufran, Haut-Médoc

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* If you're looking for great, ripe black currant fruits, this is where to come. The wine is full and hugely fruity, but it still manages a good Bordeaux sense of proportion. (RV)" (6/2006) Jancis Robinson: "Smokiness dominates the nose at the moment but there’s still evidence of fresh and aromatic cassis underneath. Rich and yet juicy. A slightly leafy aftertaste may not to be everyone’s taste but it does finish fresh.

1995 Potensac, Médoc Top Pick!
1995 Potensac, Médoc

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Elegant, complex, and evolved, the saturated dark ruby-colored 1995 exhibits herb-tinged, black currant/weedy cassis-like flavors that are supple, round, generous, and appealing. (RP)" (2/1998) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red. Cooler aromas of dark berries and menthol. Sweet and textured in the mouth; already displaying plenty of personality. Flavors are more evolved than those of the '96, and also more accessible today. Finishes with substantial chewy tannins.

Medium-bodied and elegant...(RP)" (6/2004) Wine Enthusiast: "Huge investment is paying off at Labegorce. And it has not resulted in a wine that is simply modern in style. For here the new wood is well integrated, the fruit is structured, and never too extracted, and the ripeness also has layers of Bordeaux dryness.

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."

Long, vibrant finish. Drink from 2012. (19 points)" (11/2010) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Upgraded in score over my original rating, which was several points lower, Alfred Tesseron has done a remarkable job since 1994 with Pontet-Canet, which has been hitting first-growth levels since 2003.

Long and powerful, showing amazing botrytis character, with so much spice and richness, yet also freshness. Even better than the superb 2006.

2006 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Cantemerle was the "surprise package" of the blind tasting at Farr Vintners' horizontal. It has a conservative nose with rosemary and undergrowth scents that open nicely in the glass, but retain a sense of classicism. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, lightly spiced red berry fruit, sage and white pepper, quite persistent on the finish, which feels very pure. What an outstanding 2006 Claret - a Cantemerle that punches well above its weight. Tasted April 2016.

2007 Raymond-Lafon, Sauternes (375ml)

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer: "Pungent botrytized aromas of apricot, pineapple, orange zest and licorice, lifted by floral high tones. Dense, spicy and thick on the palate, offering superb purity of fruit framed and lifted by ineffable spicy and minty high tones. Not a particularly fat or powerful style; in fact, the perfectly integrated acidity gives shape to the middle palate and extends the finish, which displays late botrytis notes of barley sugar and honey. A beauty in the making: I tasted the final blend, but the wine will not be bottled until Septe... Read More »

It needs another year or two to soften but it’s already gorgeous to drink. Decant an hour or two before." (10/2012) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* With its dryness, this seems at first to be all tannin. There is, though, a black currant fruit flavor that shows through after the wine has been in the mouth for a while, and the aftertaste has fine acidity. This should develop well.

2001 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Brane-Cantenac vertical at the château, the 2001 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It has impressive lift on the nose: blackberry, raspberry and minerals, a bouquet that is captivating. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a core of black fruit, spice and licorice with a lovely peacock's tail on the finish. This is a Margaux with a skip in its step, more light-hearted and carefree than the 2000. I have always adored this wine and it is showing extremely well with 14 years on the ...Read More »

1996 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien Top Pick!
1996 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Clos du Marquis is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon (lower than recent vintages), 33% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot (that usually goes into Leoville-Las Cases). Much like the 1996 Potensac that I tasted alongside at the château, the nose is youthful and backward with blackberry, freshly tilled soil, cedar and tobacco scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth entry, plenty of crisp and pure black fruit laced with cedar, harmonious and long. This is a great Saint Julien at 20 years of age, firing on all cyli ...Read More »

More recently: waxy yellow; rich bouquet; very sweet, full-bodied. Showing well." This wine is actually better than the heralded 1983. (Nov 1992)

1981 La Dauphine, Fronsac (1.5L)

Marie Josephe de Saxe (1731-1767), was the wife of Dauphin Louis Ferdinand de France (son of Louis XV). She lived in the chateau a little after it was built, around 1750 and gave the name of her husband's title to the estate. At the time of this particular release, this 25-acre vineyard was under the ownership of the esteemed Moueix family. Wines from this period are now fully mature, and represent an extraordinary buy for a birthday or anniversary. All bottles reconditioned at the property.

A pure, uncompromising, traditionally-styled wine, it is to be admired for its authenticity, class, and quality. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2035.

1991 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L)

Purchased direct from the property and a personal favorite of K&L founder Clyde Beffa, Labegorce appeals to those with a preference for "old school" Bordeaux: structured, earthy, meaty and rustic, with dark fruits and classic Margaux minerality. Time in bottle brings out additional complexity, as the tannins soften as secondary and tertiary aromas and flavors of dried fruits, tobacco, wood and leather emerge. With 25+ years of age, this wine is mature and ready to drink tonight. Open and enjoy with food...steak, preferably!

1996 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1996 Domaine de Chevalier certainly surpassed my expectations even though I would caution that I think Olivier Bernard has made better vintages since then. Deep in color, the nose is quite captivating with black fruit, brine and crushed stone. I like the strictness here -- very 1996 in style. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a svelte texture. The bead of acidity lends this tension although I found that finish surprisingly backward and just lacked that peacock's tail that would have warranted a higher score. Of course, the ...Read More »

It has a really wonderful bouquet that is coming into its own: potent with black truffle and gravel infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline tang on the entry. It is not a powerful or huge wine, but there is impressive length here and genuine complexity on the finish, with black truffle, cedar and tobacco notes vying for attention.

It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused. Lovely now to drink but better in 2017." (10/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous.

Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, balanced by unrelenting purity of fruit that somehow manages to anesthetize the monstrous tannin, to soften the extremely dry, mineral-bound finish into a caress.

Lots of clove and orange peel. Same quality as the 2001." (3/2008) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Doisy-Védrines has a rich and decadent bouquet, very honeyed and forward, perhaps missing the precision of the Doisy-Daëne. The palate is rich and powerful with notes of honey, tangerine and marmalade. The finish feels unctuous in the layered in the mouth – a typica ...Read More »

2003 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe

95 points Wine Spectator: "Loads of crushed berries, with mineral, lightly toasted oak and licorice. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is the sleeper of the vintage. Best after 2010. (JS)" (3/2006) 94 points James Suckling: "This shows so wonderfully now with a dense palate yet a delicate chocolate, mineral and walnut skin. Full and velvety. Wonderful with juicy length and a long finish. Almost Burgundian in texture." (4/2013) 92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red color. Very fresh aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and dark chocolate; not at all surmuri Then ripe but aromatic and juicy in t ...Read More »

2006 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

94 points James Suckling: "Just coming around now, the 2006 shows beautiful meat, forest floor, tobacco and berry character. It's medium to full-bodied. Savory finish. Drink now or hold." (11/2015) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "While it doesn’t have huge power, this wine does have many great attributes. It is smoothly ripe, its open structure a fine reflection of the elegant style, edged with minerality. The acidity is pure, not too dominant, but lifting the generous fruit and final dry character. (RV)" (11/2011) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Black fruits, licorice, tobacco and cedary oak on the nose. Dense and fine-grained, w ...Read More »

1990 Margaux, Margaux Top Pick!
1990 Margaux, Margaux

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 Chateau Margaux has turned into a sensational wine that eclipses both the 1988 and 1989...and then some. It has a gorgeous, ethereal bouquet with sumptuous red berry fruit, leather, camphor and licorice—it is the kind of nose in which you just immerse yourself. Is there a hint of brettanomyces here? If there is, I don't really care. The palate is soft and sensual with incredible depth. Fleshy and corpulent for Chateau Margaux, and yet surfeit with breeding and finesse, there are layers or red fruit, kirsch, sage and fig, later tobacco and cloves ...Read More »

2007 Haut Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

89 points Robert Parker: "A sleeper of the vintage, this constant over-achiever’s 2007 exhibits notes of plum sauce, soy, spice box, and unsmoked, high class cigar tobacco. This round, generous sleeper of the vintage shows good density, medium to full body, and a silky, smooth style. Drink it over the next 7-8 years." (04/10) According to the Wine Spectator: "Fresh herb and berry aromas lead to a medium body, with fine tannins and a medium fruity finish. Chewy now. A little bottle age will take away some of the rusticity. Drink now." (03/10) 89 points ... Read More »

1999 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the 1999 horizontal at Bordeaux Index. The Haut-Bailly has a very ripe, generous nose with rounded raspberry, wild strawberry, a hint of acacia and white flowers. Great lift and expression. With aeration it develops a lovely candied quality that is irresistible. The palate is medium-bodied, supple with rounded, fleshy tannins, layers of ripe red-berried fruit with excellent acidity and definition. Satiates the palate, superb length. A top quality Haut-Bailly in a difficult vintage. Excellent. (Neil Martin's Wine Journal on eRobertParker.com) ...Read More »

1986 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac Top Pick!
1986 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

95 points Wine Spectator: "Juicy, fleshy and showy, with warm plum sauce, melted black licorice, espresso, cocoa powder and black currant confiture notes all melded together, yet clearly defined. The smoldering, tobacco-fueled finish expands steadily with air. A wine of power and range that is just hitting its stride. (JM, Web-2014)" 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Just now emerging from a very clumsy dormant period, Pichon-Lalande’s dense ruby/purple-colored 1986 still has the color of a 4 or 5 year old wine. This is the most tannic and backward Pichon-Lalande after 1975 and before 1996. The wine was completely c ...Read More »
