2007 d'Escurac, Medoc

This is a property to watch in the future. Very well-priced wines that have great balance and fruit. This one has toasty aromas and a very fruity palate impression. Super value. Very elegant wine from one of my favorite ready-to-drink vintages. Enjoy with a rack of lamb. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Wine Merchants)

2005 Coutet, Sauternes (Previously $55)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*#10 in Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Wines of 2008* Surprisingly dry, this has richness rather than sweetness, and intense, powerful botrytis. The honey is intensely perfumed, along with baked apples and spice. Certainly a long-aging wine. (RV)" (6/2008) 92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "It is not unusual for late harvest wines to have a bit of a sharp, kerosene edge to their lush personalities, although that characteristic is more often associated with the sweet wines of Germany than it is with those of Sauternes. Yet there, in the midst of the orange rind, dried peach, juicy pineapple, stra ...Read More »

2001 Labégorce, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A straightforward, dark plum/garnet-colored effort, the 2001 Labegorce reveals smoky, earthy elements intertwined with cherries, plums, and cedar. 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.

2007 Labegorce Zede, Margaux

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "From 2009, Labégorce-Zédé will no longer exist, being amalgamated with Château Labégorce-Margaux. So this 2007 is one of the last vintages. The wine has solid but lively black fruits, the tannins dark, firm and full of blackberry juice flavors with a touch of cranberry dryness. It is definitely for aging. (RV)" (6/2010) Wine Spectator: "Delicate aromas of currant and flowers follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and an aftertaste of licorice and delicate berry. Fresh and elegant.

2007 Côte de Baleau, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A tasty effort from the Reiffers family, this 2007 (70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits dusty, earthy notes, a lush, medium-bodied style, and abundant black cherry fruit, herb, and spice characteristics. It is deep, medium-bodied, and best drunk over the next 7-8 years. (RP)" (4/2010) Wine Spectator: "Berry and black olive on the nose and palate.

(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)

1991 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) Top Pick!
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!

There's wonderful balance to this wine. Best after 2012.

It needs another year or two to soften but it’s already gorgeous to drink. Decant an hour or two before."

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.

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.

1990 Montrose, St-Estèphe

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The final blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc was harvested between September 14 and October 3. The spring was cold, yet summer was extremely hot and dry – one of the hottest vintages since 1949. The fact that virtually no rain fell in September served as a catalyst to get all the grapes ripe and in cellars....This wine has an incredibly complex nose of spring flowers, blackberry and cassis liqueur, scorched earth and barbecue spice.

2000 Meyney, St-Estèphe

Wine Enthusiast: "Typical of Saint-Estèphe, this wine is totally closed up. It is more tannins than fruit at this stage of its development. But it is obvious that there is fruit there, and that it will develop. But for now, it's a case of watch this space." (6/2003) Wine Spectator: "Love the spicy, nutmeg and floral nose to this. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Tight now, but should come around. Should be a bit better." (3/2003)

This always impresses me, with its rich and decadent character. Best after 2009. (JS)" (1/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The resurgence of l’Arrosee that we’ve seen over the last four or five years is not apparent in the 2000.

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.

The 2006 Château Langoa Barton has a lifted nose of small dark cherries, blackberry, incense and marmalade - quite showy for Langoa Barton - but there is joie-de-vivre here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, ripe and demonstrating impressive density plus a firm grip. This really coats the mouth in tannin, although it is still balanced. It just needs another 4-5 years in bottle, the stubborn little lady. Tasted January 2016. (NM)" (5/2016) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Soft and ripe, here is a wine that just e ...Read More »

However, hotshot guru Stephane Derenoncourt is behind the winemaking as of 2002, so everyone is expecting quality to soar.

Very 2003 in its slightly roasted character but this boasts very good concentration and finishes with sweet, broad tannins and ...Read More »

1995 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

93 points James Suckling: "This is surprisingly delicate and fine now with currant and spice character and hints nuts. It is full body with refined texture and a beautiful finish." (1/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stylish, elegant, more restrained style of Pichon Baron, with less obvious new oak than usual, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine offers a pure black currant-scented nose with subtle aromas of coffee and smoky toasty oak. In the mouth, the wine displays less weight and muscle than the 1996, but it offers suave, elegant, rich fruit presented in a medium to full-bodied, surprisingly lush style. ...Read More »

2005 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of honey, dried pineapple and botrytis spice. Full-bodied, very sweet and very powerful, with loads of dried fruit and sweetness on the finish. 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 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

94 points James Suckling: "Extremely perfumed, with currants, blackberries, and flowers on the nose. Full bodied, with a solid core of beautiful fruit and super chewy, yet polished tannins. This is a brick house. Pull the cork after 2016." (3/2011) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This fully mature, gorgeous 2003 Branaire Ducru possesses silky tannins, lots of cedary, spice box, floral, black cherry, forest floor and velvety leather-like notes, full body, and an opulent, complex yet elegant style. A beauty of complexity, richness and finesse, it should continue to drink well for another 5-6 years. (RP)" (8/2014) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Opul ...Read More »

2003 Rieussec, Sauternes

98 points James Suckling: "This is big and powerful with a dense and very sweet palate. Full of botrytis and spices, from cinnamon to cloves to nutmeg. The finish is nutty with more spices and orange peel. Very stunning. Why wait? This has a slight dried grape character from the hot vintage. 151 grams of RS." (5/2012) 92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium yellow-gold. Reticent but pure aromas of fruit salad, spices and vanilla, lifted by floral and mineral nuances. Wonderfully honeyed, fat fruit flavors are complemented by cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. The sexy oak treatment gives lift to the wine. A bit youthfully ...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 »

2000 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac

92 points James Suckling: "Just starting to open now, with currant, tea leaf and berry character, along with a mineral undertone. Full body with firm tannins and a long finish. Another couple of years more of bottle age would be good, but why wait?" (7/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful wine and one of my favorites from this estate, this blend of nearly two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Merlot is aging impressively. Dense ruby/purple in color, with creme de cassis, charcoal, and sweet leathery and chocolatey notes intermixed with the classic Pauillac cedar and spice box, the wine is medium ...Read More »

2006 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Pontet-Canet has an extremely pure, vivacious, perfumed bouquet with crushed violets infusing the blueberry and blackberry fruit. But it is all about the detail and precision in this wine. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip in the mouth: lightly toasted black fruit, dried orange peel, cedar and a pinch of white pepper. This feels very cohesive and poised with just a touch of mint entering right on the finish. What a great wine from Alfred Tesseron and Jean-Michel ...Read More »

1999 Suduiraut, Sauternes Back In Stock!
1999 Suduiraut, Sauternes

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Fairly pale color. Intriguing, musky aromas of pineapple, white plum, mirabelle and minerals; nose shows terrific precision. Then thick, dense and sweet in the mouth, but surprisingly tightly wound and spicy thanks to very good acidity. Not at all unctuous; in fact, still quite firm-edged. Finishes spicy and very long, with surprising cut for this wine. (ST)" (7/2002) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Chateau Suduiraut vertical in London. Slightly deeper in colour than the 2001, the nose is very pure and delineated with touches of marmalade, quince, a hint of burnt honey and ...Read More »
