2012 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) Back In Stock!
2012 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Clos Fourtet was cropped at 32 hectoliters per hectare and achieved 14% natural alcohol. The final blend was 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. It offers an opaque dense purple color along with attractive blackberry, licorice, truffle and cassis fruit notes. It is full-bodied and dense with an authoritative mid-palate, sweet tannin and a layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally into a stunningly long finish. Precocious and charming already, it will drink better at an earlier age than the massive, prodigious 2009. (RP) ...Read More »

2014 Margaux, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Back In Stock!
2014 Margaux, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Each year, the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend creeps up—this year it's 90%. Despite the increase, the very fine, elegant tannins seem suspended in the wine. Ample acidity supports the black currant fruitiness, with a firm, impressive structure that promises good aging potential." (3/2015) 94-97 points Wine Spectator: "A light savory cassis bush hint marks the Petit Verdot in this blend, but this is quickly consumed by the Cabernet Sauvignon, with a core of well-endowed cassis and plum fruit harnessed by very long, supple tannins. Gorgeous alder, lilac and ...Read More »

2010 Raymond Lafon, Sauternes (375ml) Back In Stock!
2010 Raymond Lafon, Sauternes (375ml)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Raymond-Lafon 2010 has a complex bouquet with lemon peel, almond and quince aromas, and is well-defined with an impressive sense of energy. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous opening, and well-judged acidity. It builds toward a rounded, pineapple and marmalade- tinged finish. This has good weight and presence with plenty of strikingly fresh acidity to keep everything balanced. This wine deserves a round of applause. (NM)" (4/2014)93 points Wine Spectator: "This is rather dense, with a core of almond cream, coconut, mango, creamed peach and dried apricot notes that shoul ...Read More »

2005 Rieussec, Sauternes Back In Stock!
2005 Rieussec, Sauternes

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind against the Rieussec 2001 as a comparison, the Château Rieussec 2005 has a more airy bouquet at first and here I find more mineralité on the nose, more precision and focus that the Rieussec 2001. 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 »

2005 de Malle, Sauternes (375ml)

Charming Sauternes with tropical fruit and a nutty characteristic. An elegant example of Sauternes. Delicious wine from de Malle, which is one of the most interesting stops in Sauternes. The chateau (formerly owned by the proprietors of Yquem) goes back to the 17th century (it was built by Jacques de Malle) and it is the only listed historic monument in Sauternes.

2010 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion

96 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #2 on Top 100 Wines of 2013* This takes the power of the vintage and puts it in its pocket for later, preferring instead to let mouthwatering briar, loganberry, mulberry and blackberry fruit strut its way forward, enlivened with roasted wood spice and supported by suavely but thoroughly embedded iron-tinged structure. Should cruise for two decades. Best from 2016 through 2035." (3/2013)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine shows wonderfully exotic tapenade, licorice, Christmas fruitcake, cedar wood, blackberry and sweet cherry notes in its strikingly provocative aromatics.

100 points James Suckling: "This is so layered and intense on the palate with lemons and dried pineapple, mango and honey. Full body, very sweet, but it remains tangy and vibrant. Shows such amazing balance and intensity. Crazy finish. Hints of vanilla and apple purée. One of the greatest Yquems ever. All about purity here." (9/2013)100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 10,000 cases of this perfect sweet white Bordeaux. The 2001 Yquem reveals a hint of green in its light gold color.

2005 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Extravagantly rich, this is dense and supersweet initially, just balanced with acidity. The botrytis dryness is really not here at this stage, but with its elegant creamy texture, wood flavors still very present. This is still at the very beginning of its development." (6/2004)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "*no tasting note given*" (4/2008)92 points Wine Spectator: "Subtle aromas of honey, lemon peel, cream, vanilla and apple pie follow through to a thick palate, with lots of sweetness. There's also loads of clove and other spices. Not as exciting as from barrel, but still outstanding. Best after 2011."

Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by lovely aromas of black currants, cherries, smoke, meats, and minerals. Superb purity, full body, good acidity, and moderate tannin suggest this fleshy, substantial St.-Emilion will be drinkable in 3-4 years, and last for 15 or more." (4/2006) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby. Blueberry and minerals on the nose. Sweet and rich, with slightly inky black fruit flavors and drying tannins suggesting rather energetic extraction. But, like so many 2005s from St. Emilion, this shows ...Read More »

Very powered, it thrusts black currants and acidity right up front." (6/2008)92 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderful aromas of licorice, crushed blackberry and mineral. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and vanilla, berry and aniseed flavors. Has a long, long finish. Best after 2015."

The palate is well-balanced, with a viscous texture and a good level of botrytis, demonstrating fine minerality and tautness. Dried mango, quince and spice all interlace the focused finish, which is long in the mouth. Tasted against its peers, this has a higher level of intensity and focus.

92 points Wine Spectator: "Lots of earthy, crushed berry and floral aromas. Full-bodied, with lots of good fruit and moist, velvety tannins. Long finish. Don't forget this. No one talks about this estate any more, and it makes very good wines in top vintages. Best after 2010." (3/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The only vintage after 1996 that merits attention from serious wine lovers, the 2000 Marquis de Terme has a dense, murky ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of berry fruit, earth, licorice, and new oak. Medium-weight with good concentration and purity, it is much more developed than most 2000s. Anticip ...Read More »

1996 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (soiled labels)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This fabulous 1996 was tasted three times from bottle, and it is unquestionably the finest wine produced by this estate since their blockbuster 1990. Medium to full-bodied, with a saturated black/purple color, the nose offers notes of cedar, jammy black fruits, smoke, truffles, and subtle new oak. In the mouth, there is impressive fruit extraction, a tannic, full-bodied structure, and a classic display of power and finesse. The longer it sat in the glass, the more impressive the wine became.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With delicious blackberry and cassis fruit, the lofty alcohol (14.5%) of this 2005 is not the least bit noticeable, but demonstrates the ripeness achieved at this property, now owned by the proprietor of the famous Lalique crystal. The wine is dense purple, rich, medium to full-bodied and powerful, with loads of minerality and depth. (RP)" (6/2015) Wine Spectator: "A juicy, full-bodied red, with clean blackberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Very fruity and well-balanced. Tempting now." (3/2008)

Full-bodied with firm tannins yet polished and velvety. It still has an incredible freshness. I love it. Try it after 2015, but enjoy this now if you cannot wait."

Long, with a vanilla-coconut tart finish. What a wine, voluptuous, sexy, and luscious. 147 grams of RS. Pull the cork after 2015." (5/2012)97 points Wine Spectator: "Squarely on the tropical side of the spectrum, with mango, papaya and pineapple fruit laced with a marmalade note.

Pull the cork in 2013." (5/2012)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has far more intrigue on the nose than the 2005 with the Cabernet Franc relishing this propitious growing season. Savoury fruits, a touch of fig and earth although perhaps it could just do with a little more harmony.

2001 Coutet, Sauternes

The palate is viscous and extremely well focused with fine mineralité and tension. It feels quite youthful and linear vis-à-vis its peers and concludes with a tangy, marmalade-lavished finish. (NM)" (10/2014)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Subdued but pure aromas of mirabelle, peach, pear and pineapple; hints at a roasted botrytis ripeness. Then fat and rich in the mouth, with a captivating flavor of roasted peach. Impressively b ...Read More »

(4/2010)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Doisy-Daene was spectacular out of barrel, however it has never quite reached those ethereal heights in bottle. Perhaps this rich, generous vintage did not quite suit the crisp, tense style of Denis Dubourdieu’s Barsac? Compared to others in this blind tasting, it comes across as more muted on the nose with scents of beeswax, marmalade and lanolin, though the Sauvignon Blanc is very expressive.

On the palate, once again there is a common theme of purity and crisp acidity, although they alternated between a lighter and a more mellifluous style. One or two significant lots demonstrated enticing spicy notes that define great Climens. There is certainly enormous potential here, one that beckons an intense, vivacious Barsac underpinned by freshness and focus. The 2011 was picke ...Read More »

Its dark plum/purple color is followed by notes of melted tar intermixed with sweet cassis and floral underpinnings. Very full-bodied and dense for a Chateau Margaux, with a slight rusticity to the tannins, it boasts blockbuster power, richness, and impressive aromatics. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life." (6/2009)97 points Antonio Galloni: "The 1982 Château Margaux is a real stunner. An exotic, almost candied ...Read More »

2003 Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes Back In Stock!
2003 Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes

91 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of apples and dried pineapples follow through to a full-bodied palate, yet it's spicy and lively with a long, long finish. Very exciting. Lots of lemon curd and richness on the finish. Much better than from barrel. And better than the 2001. Best after 2010." (03/06) Barrel sample accoding to Clyde Beffa, K&L's Bordeaux Buyer: "Tastes like licorice. Spicy and very well-made. This wine seems to have enough acidity to go with its sweet honeyed flavors. * " (04/04)

2008 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion Back In Stock!
2008 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Consultants Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt have produced a beautiful St.-Emilion that tastes like the quintessence of crushed rocks intermixed with blueberry, blackberry, black raspberry, licorice, camphor and truffle notes. This full-bodied effort should drink well in 4-5 years, and last for two decades or more. It achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. (RP)" (5/2011)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** An impressive wine, beautifully structured, never too powerful, very elegant. If it feels a little austere at this stage, that is because the structure is dominati ...Read More »

1995 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival) Back In Stock!
1995 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 1995 Chateau d’Yquem is moving into its secondary aroma phase. A deep golden color, it has a dense and almost Barsac-like bouquet with tangerine, apricot, acacia and melted candle wax. It displays good intensity, unfolding beautifully in the glass. The palate has a strident opening, with a slight bitter edge that lends this Yquem great tension. One can discern layers of marmalade infused with honey fruit, with a powerful, spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is drinking perfectly now, but will surely age ...Read More »

1996 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival) Back In Stock!
1996 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "This leans toward the tropical side, with mango and guava notes out front, while maple, date, blood orange and citrus oil flavors fill in behind. The finish kicks into another gear, taking off with honeysuckle, orange blossom and frangipane accents. Has almost unbridled power today, while maintaining serious cut. A very impressive showing in a rather overlooked vintage.—Non-blind Yquem vertical (July 2014). Drink now through 2035." (2/2014)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Compared with the flamboyant aromatics of the 1997, Yquem's 1996 plays it closer to the vest, although there is a lot ...Read More »

2005 Clos de Sarpe, St-Emilion Back In Stock!
2005 Clos de Sarpe, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Clearly a wine made for future generations, Clos de Sarpe, with its tendency for tiny yields of under 25 hectoliters per hectare, has fashioned a 1,000 case blend of 85% Merlot and the rest old vine Cabernet Franc. Over recent vintages, this wine has been among the most concentrated and formidably tannic and backward made in Bordeaux. A claret for those with 19th century tastes, it offers good purity, ripe tannin, and an extraordinary display of concentration, extract, power, and tannic clout. The 2005 is a mammoth yet incredibly well-balanced St.-Emilio ...Read More »

2003 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

96 points James Suckling: "This is very fresh and clean. Full bodied and juicy, with loads of fruit starting with strawberry jam and ending with baskets of fresh fruits. This is exotic and crisp, a truly fabulous 2003 with incredible finesse. Pull the cork on this one after 2014. Find the wine" (3/2011)96 points Wine Spectator: "Blackberry, mineral and lightly toasted oak. Subtle and complex. Full-bodied, with wonderfully sweet fruit character and ultrarefined tannins. Goes on and on. Gorgeous and seductive. Best after 2009." (3/2006) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "There have been more complete Cheval Blancs than this, but this 2003 does ha ...Read More »
