1998 Haut Franquet, Moulis

We discovered this wine on our 2017 Bordeaux trip and it has finally arrived. A neighbor of Poujeaux, I must admit i have never seen the property, but what they did in 1998 is commendable. Some 1998 left bank wines are a bit coarse and tough-this, like the Poujeaux, is elegant and fruit driven. Perfect hamburger wine.

2007 Malescasse, Haut-Medoc Top Pick!
2007 Malescasse, Haut-Medoc

Jancis Robinson: "Already a bit of evolution on the nose! Sweet, Earl Grey tea character. Mild and with sufficient gentle fruit on the mid palate though pretty chewy on the finish. Pretty low key. 16/20" (4/2008) K&L Notes: Château Malescasse is an historic property ideally situated on gravel soils close to the Gironde River just north of Margaux. While it is true that 2007 will never have the power or authority of the finest vintages of the decade, the best wines display a remarkable ripeness and an admirable richness of texture. These are medium to full-bodied reds with soft tannins... Read More »

2001 Coufran, Haut-Médoc

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a medium-bodied, elegant wine offering up scents of plums, cherries, and loamy soil. With good sweetness, an attractive flavor profile, low acidity, and ripe tannin, it should provide enjoyment over the next 5-6 years. (RP)" (4/2003) Wine Spectator: "A pleasant wine with plum and fresh mint character. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a light finish. (JS)" (3/2004)

1989 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Exotically perfumed violet and rose petals burst on your palate, accompanied by dried apricot, lemon and honey flavors. Gorgeous and subtle, glowing on the finish." (4/1995) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from the Château reserves at the estate. The ’89 is a little lighter in hue compared to the Suduiraut ’90. The nose offers caramelized pear, frangipane, yellow flowers and a touch of quince, moderate vigour at first, but opening nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of bitter orange rind on the entry, marmalade, quince and a mandarin and dried apricot o ...Read More »

2005 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of mineral, blackberry and licorice lead to a full body, with lots of racy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. There's plenty of character, with a polished, refined style, yet tannic. Best after 2011. (JS)" (3/2008) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Scattered notes of stony spice and tobacco join with fairly solid young curranty fruit in both the aromas and flavors of this full-scaled and well-extracted young Graves, and it delivers a little more volume and depth than we would expect at the price. It is long on tannic grip at the moment and is thus one meant for the cellar, and we ...Read More »

1996 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very good example of this...estate, the 1996's saturated dark ruby/plum color is accompanied by textbook aromas of black currants, smoky new oak, minerals, and tobacco. Well-made, with moderate tannin, excellent purity, and a medium-bodied, ripe, melted asphalt-flavored finish, this [is a] seductive Lynch-Moussas...(RP)" (4/1999) K&L Notes: In February 1998, Robert Parker wrote: "Lynch-Moussas is clearly on the comeback trail, as evidenced by the 1995 and 1996 efforts, which are two of the finest wines I have tasted from this Pauillac estate."

Lots of fruit with a tropical fruit undertone of mango and papaya on the palate. Intense finish."

1990 Bel Air Lagrave, Moulis (1.5L)

Family owned for over 150 years, Bel Air Lagrave is a highly respected Bordeaux estate in Moulis. Classic in style, and emphasizing elegance and purity of fruit, this predominately Cabernet wine (with a good portion of Merlot and a bit of Petit Verdot), generally spends nearly 20 months in oak, some neutral and anywhere from 35 - 50% new depending on the nature of the vintage. Though mature, the wine has preserved fruit, energy and balanced nuance of both freshness and elegance. Textural, medium-bodied, evolved and expressive Bordeaux that won't set your... Read More »

2006 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc

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.

Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully over the last eleven years, this wine is still an adolescent, but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance. One of the all-time great examples of Lynch Bages, the 2000 is just beginning to drink well yet promises to last for another 20-25+ years.

Silky, sumptuous, very beautifully made. Lots of acidity to keep it fresh on the palate and ripe tannins. Dense and youthful but not awkward. Attractive sweetness rather than overripe jamminess.

I drank a bottle with some friends in Manhattan last week and it was the wine of the evening. It was full-bodied with silky tannins and a focused and intense finish.

Stylish, with medium to full body, sweet tannin, and excellent purity as well as overall symmetry, it will drink well between 2004-2016. (RP)" (4/2001) Vinous: "Moderately saturated ruby-red.

Her finest effort since taking over this property in 1999, the 2005 boasts a saturated purple color followed by notes of ripe blackberries, black currants, licorice, incense, chocolate, and espresso.

2005 Baron de Brane, Margaux

Decanter: "A second wine of an excellent Margaux at 12 years old in a great vintage should be on its absolute plateau right now, and while this is fairly evolved, it offers plenty of gentle soft leather and brioche pleasure. There is some sweet brambly fruit with the faintest trace of brett, but overall it's a beautiful wine to enjoy over the next few years. It's crying out for slow-braised lamb. (JA)" (11/2017) Wine Spectator: "Shows currant bush and sweet tobacco, with berry underneath on the nose. Medium-bodied, with an earthy, funky finish. Good enough. The second wine of Brane-C ...Read More »

2003 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)

98 points James Suckling: "A massive Yquem, this has a dense palate that is almost chewy like a red. Full and very sweet, with notes of dried apricot, pineapple, and papaya on the palate. Long, with a vanilla-coconut tart finish. What a wine, voluptuous, sexy, and luscious. 147 grams of RS." (4/2012) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Squarely on the tropical side of the spectrum, with mango, papaya and pineapple fruit laced with a marmalade note. Long and very caressing through the finish, but never heady or overpowering, as orange pâte de fruit, ginger and singed almond accents lend cut and precision. Shows the hea ...Read More »

2013 Latour-Martillac Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Complex and rich, this wine is fully textured, with ripe fruit flavors and balanced acidity. There is a touch of ginger, giving the wine extra complexity." 89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright straw yellow. Sauvignon-dominated aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and sage. Then slightly austere in the mouth, with grapefruit and sage flavors lifted by lively acidity and complicated by a strong wet stone quality. Finishes saline and long, with bracing acidity. This should age extremely well, and I think it will need at least eight to ten from the vintage to show its bes ...Read More »

1990 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc

94 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderful mint and black currant aromas that follow through to the palate. Full-bodied and velvety-textured, with lots of fruit and a long, long finish. Exceptional. (JS)" (8/2000) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A fully mature, elegant 1990 with an exceptionally flowery, berry, white chocolate, and smoky oak-scented nose, this fleshy, mid-weight La Lagune exhibits a velvety texture and no hard edges. It is an endearing wine. (RP)" (6/2009)

2000 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion Back In Stock!
2000 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Extremely young with an unbelievable deep purple color, the 2000 Troplong Mondot has hardly budged since I tasted it in 2003. Two recent tastings confirmed that this is the greatest Troplong Mondot between their profound 1990 and more recent vintages such as 2005, 2008, and 2009. Copious chocolate, graphite, blackberry, blueberry, cassis, and ink characteristics are present in this full-bodied, powerful, massive St.-Emilion. While the tannins are noticeable, they are better integrated than they were seven years ago, and the fruit, extract, and richness c ...Read More »
