2010 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan Back In Stock!
2010 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

92-93 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that shows lots of chocolate, tobacco and currants. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. All there." (4/2011) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Haut-Bergey 2010 has a very concentrated bouquet with dense blackberry, briary, crushed stone and tobacco on the nose that unfolds in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins on the entry. There is a lot of extraction here, but it is in tune with the acidity and the structured finish has plenty of vibrant red fruit and energy to see it through to ...Read More »

2005 Boyd-Cantenac, Margaux

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This chateau, which is often under the radar (production is only 5,500-6,000 cases), has fashioned a terrific, inky/blue/purple-hued 2005 with a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers, creme de cassis, pain grille, and blueberries. Powerful and concentrated with full-bodied richness, stunning purity, and a tannic, 40+-second finish, this beauty requires patience. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030+." (4/2008) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Offers loads of toasty oak and very ripe fruit, with hints of coffee and tobacco.

2013 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (1.5L)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a bold, ripe, fruity wine, perfumed with fruit that’s already attractive. The tannins are dry, but balanced with the fruit. A good choice for medium-term aging." (4/2014) 92-93 points James Suckling: "This is incredibly long and intense for the vintage with raspberry and citrus character. Fine tannins. It goes on for minutes. An electrifying wine for the vintage from organically grown grapes." (4/2014) 91-93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pavie Macquin boasts striking depth, power and volume for the year.

2012 Figeac, St-Emilion

93-94 points James Suckling: "A wine with a mineral, blueberry and light clay character. Full body, with round and velvety tannins and a long finish. Shows plenty of mineral, iron and spice character. Can’t make up my mind if I like 2011 and 2012. I tasted both this time." (4/2013) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. This wine has weight and tannins that offer good structure, but it's the ripe, rich fruit that dominates. It's powerful and complex, and likely to age well."

2013 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

88-91 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a mix of steeped red currant, macerated cherry and raspberry coulis flavors that race along with a good graphite spine and chalky echo through the finish. Solid. (Web-2014)" 88-90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Strong caramel aromas lead to a wine that is firmly tannic and too heavily extracted. The wine does have weight, suggesting fruit here, but is hard to taste at the moment." (4/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A deep ruby/purple color emerges from this lighter-weight, medium-bodied 2013 Gruaud Larose along with good purity and sweet tannin.

2013 de Fieuzal Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

Surprisingly full, rich, exuberant and borderline flamboyant, this is a stunning white Graves to consume over the next 20+ years. (RP)" (8/2014) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample.

2005 La Bienfaisance, St-Emilion (Elsewhere $40-55)

88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Aromas of kirsch and damp earth show an almost porty ripeness. Rich, broad and full but classically dry; offers impressive volume but comes across as a bit massive and chunky. This cold, north-facing terroir can support a hot year like 2005, notes consulting winemaker Stephane Derenoncourt. Still, I would not describe this as an elegant style. Finishes with building tannins."

This has a new winery, but the clay soil of the vineyards really helped. Best after 2009." (3/2006) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This large (120+ acres) vineyard planted on limestone and clay soils is composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

The dense purple-tinged 2005 offers up notes of creme de cassis, charcoal, camphor, and espresso roast. A sleeper of the vintage, it is a full-bodied, layered, super-concentrated, smooth as silk blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

Lots of fruit with a tropical fruit undertone of mango and papaya on the palate. Intense finish." (7/2013) 97 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #4, Top 100 Wines of 2008, Highly Recommended* Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish. Hard not to drink it now."

Velvety and balanced. Best after 2013." (5/2008) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What a decadent, fruit-driven St.-Emilion! From a proprietor who delivers the goods in an upfront, gorgeously luscious, hedonistic manner, this lovely fruit-bomb reveals a dense purple color, a perfumed nose of sweet black cherries and black currants, incense, roasted herbs, and oak.

Drink or hold." (5/2013) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Guiraud is one of the outstanding successes of the 2009 vintage, perhaps the best vintage that I have encountered in recent years.

2005 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant acidity, real tension here with marmalade, lemon curd, apricot and cold stone. Wonderful acidity is interwoven throughout this Sauternes that demonstrates real race and sophistication. It is not as rich or as hedonistic as the Rieussec 2001, but I think the slightly better wine. More breeding and energy. Do ...Read More »

Deep, opulent, round, and full-bodied, it is a fully mature St.-Emilion that should drink well for another decade. (RP)" (6/2010) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive. Very dark and deep for a red.

It is usually seen as a less refined Barsac predisposed to richness and viscosity, but the 2009 exudes far more tension and elegance than I anticipated. It has a perfumed, floral bouquet with scents of dried honey, melted wax, lemon curd and a touch of lemon thyme. It is beautifully defined and focused.

At the same time, the fruits offer a smooth, juicy aftertaste. Keep for 6–7 years." (5/2013) 92 points James Suckling: "This is very extracted with chewy tannins and lots of new wood but there's ripe fruit underneath and a pretty finish. Give it three or four years to soften.

Pear, brioche, peach and smoke meld together in a highly expressive, textured Sauvignon/Sémillon blend that captures the combination of richness and lively acidity that make this vintage so attractive for whites.
