2017 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival) New!
2017 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "This shows a polished yet encompassing structure of solid tannins, which support flavors of mulberries and black cherries. Medium-bodied, velvety with rather chewy. Long finish." (4/2018) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dry tannins and juicy fruit give this wine its structure while also bringing out the freshness of the vintage. There is a fine, juicy character that is already attractive. (RV)" (4/2018) 92 points Decanter: "This is a very attractive wine that has been carefully extracted in this vintage. It has a damson fruit expression with real elegance and restrained power, followed by a dusting of cocoa po ...Read More »

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a medium-bodied, elegant wine offering up scents of plums, cherries, and loamy soil.

2017 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) New!
2017 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This producer needs to be careful with the wood aging lest it smother the fruit. However, the good news is that the fruit is there, as well as fine, firm tannins. Together, they give this juicy wine great aging potential. (RV)" (4/2018) 90-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Château Siran should certainly be an outstanding wine. Giving up lots of black fruits, charcoal, and graphite notes, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and with solid ripeness and depth. It’s an impressive effort from Margaux."

2017 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) New!
2017 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I was able to taste the 2017 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc on three separate occasions and it never failed to impress. It should match, if not exceed, the 2015. Gorgeous notes of lemon curd, mint, citrus, white peach, and salty minerality all emerge from this medium to full-bodied white. It doesn’t have the sheer scale or sexiness of a sunnier year, yet its purity is off the charts, it has riveting acidity, and a great, great finish. The blend is currently 70% Sauvignon and 30% Sémillon, and it will spend 16 months on lees in 35% new French oak. Don’t miss ...Read More »

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Kudos to proprietress Sophie Porquet, who also makes the sensational Cotes de Castillon, Joanin-Becot. From this 35-acre vineyard she has fashioned a sensational blend of 70% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. 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. Thick, highly-extracted flavors nearly obscure the elevated tannins. This big, serious, rich claret is meant to last for three ...Read More »

1998 Haut Franquet, Moulis Back In Stock!
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.

(4/2018) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Malescot St. Exupery is scented of crushed red and black cherries, warm plums and mulberries with touches of roses and wood smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of vibrant red and black fruits and soft, plush tannins, with a long, perfumed finish.

It’s very much in the style of the vintage with its cool, perfumed aromatics and sensational purity of fruit, yet it also has richness and weight. It’s a brilliant Pomerol."

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."

2001 Climens, Barsac (Previously $300)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Climens 2001 has always possessed a deliriously complex and intense bouquet that is beautifully defined: dried quince and marmalade, honeycomb and antique furniture. There is an inchoate, resinous element that will surely surface over the next decade or so. This is a bouquet that demands attention and in this blind tasting, sticks out from the crowd, a sui generis. Since I last tasted it, the palate has opened up and is beginning to pump on all cylinders. It is wonderfully balanced with fabulous intensity and a long, citrus-tinged finish that is utte ...Read More »

Features a very fine-grained finish, with lovely minerality that extends nicely. A beautiful wine. (JM, Web-2015)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A noble, complex nose of flowers, beef blood, black currants, licorice, and truffles reveals surprising evolution.

1996 Ferrière, Margaux

Robert Parker… 'Along with the 1995, this is the finest Ferriere I have ever tasted. The 1996 is an opaque purple-colored, sweet wine, with plenty of dense berry fruit, lavish quantities of new oak, and a mineral, oaky character that enhances the wine. It is medium-bodied, full, and deep, although somewhat monolithic. If more complexity emerges, this could turn out to be a sleeper of the vintage... Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020.'

Ripe, lush and large-scaled on the palate; sweet black fruit flavors really fill the mouth. The tannin level is rather high, but there also strong, bright finishing fruit and notes of smoke and earth." (6/1998) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Clinet has turned out better than expected from barrel. Its exotic nose of truffles, vanilla, plum liqueur, black fruits, and Asian spices leads to a plump, fat wine with notes of coffee, coconut cream, and blackberries.

(4/2018) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Clos de l'Oratoire is pliant and supple, with striking balance of fruit and tannin. In some recent vintages, Clos de l'Oratoire has been more massive, but I have to say, the balance of the 2017 is really quite compelling.

Based on 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot aging in 35% new French oak, its deep purple color is followed by an incredibly classic bouquet of crème de cassis, crushed rock, pipe tobacco, smoked earth, and leafy herbs.

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best of 2007, Cellar Selection* Is a classic. Vintage 2004 has given beautifully ripe Merlot, perfectly poised, but also showing the dryness and power. It is hugely intense, structured, bringing in blackberry flavors, fresh acidity and complex wood, perfumed and rich, concentrated. The aging potential? At least 20 years. (RV)" (6/2007) 95 points Wine & Spirits: "By far the most concentrated of the '04 Pomerols, Pétrus carries its extract with opulence and grace. It feels intense while tasting vibrant, the buoyancy of its floral red fruit a clear match for the resonant tannins. Ther ...Read More »

2006 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

90 points James Suckling: "This is light a tightly wound ball of wool. It’s velvety textured with ripe tannins, plum skin and berry character. Full, long and intense. Just starting to drink well." (10/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I indicated last year, quality has improved dramatically at this estate, and the 2006 is a quintessentially elegant Bordeaux displaying a dark ruby/purple color, a lovely bouquet of forest floor, sweet cherries, cranberries, and black currants, medium body, a textured, sweet, tannic mouthfeel, and a long finish. Everything is beautifully pure as well as perfectly balanced in t ...Read More »

2003 Pape-Clément, Pessac-Léognan Back In Stock!
2003 Pape-Clément, Pessac-Léognan

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This gorgeous, fully mature, complex Pape Clement exhibits notes of smoky tobacco, earth, loamy soil, forest floor, black cherries, plums and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, fresh and lively, the acids have fallen away and the tannins have melted into an opulent, fleshy, classic Bordeaux. Consume it over the next 10-15 years. Bravo! (RP)" (8/2014) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of crushed berry, mineral, tobacco and smoke. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and loads of ripe, rich fruit. Goes on for minutes. This is tight and well-structured. (JS)" (3/2006) 92 points James Suckling: "Loads of earthy and ...Read More »

2003 Beauséjour Duffau-Lagarosse, St-Emilion Back In Stock!
2003 Beauséjour Duffau-Lagarosse, St-Emilion

92 points Wine Spectator: "What a beautiful and opulent wine. Aromas of chocolate, berry and raspberry. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins. Long finish. Elegant. Best after 2008. (JS)" (7/2006) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The elegant, medium-bodied 2003 Beausejour-Duffau reveals notes of crushed rocks, raspberries, licorice, forest floor and underbrush. The tannins are fully resolved, and the wine remains well-delineated and fresh. It should drink well for another decade. (RP)" (8/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good healthy dark color. Sexy aromas of currant, blueberry jam, chocolate and smoky oak, with complicating hints of leather and ...Read More »

2005 Soutard, St-Emilion Back In Stock!
2005 Soutard, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium-bodied and superficial for the vintage, the deep ruby-colored 2005 Soutard offers a pleasant nose of loamy soil, spice, berry fruit, and earth. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied and shallow, with light to moderate tannin and a decent finish. New owners, the insurance group Groupe Le Mondiale, and a new manager, Claire Thomas-Chenard, should result in higher quality from this estate. (RP)" (4/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Black raspberry and nutty oak on the nose. Ripe but not fat, with sound acidity giving this a juicy, penetrating character. A firm, solid, miner ...Read More »

2005 La Vieille Cure, Fronsac Back In Stock!
2005 La Vieille Cure, Fronsac

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In this vintage, this estate (one of the leading properties in Fronsac) produced an opaque/purple blend of 75% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon from vines averaging 25 years of age. Offering beautiful black cherry and black raspberry fruit, abundant chalk, minerality, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish, this over-achieving, full-throttle Fronsac is a brilliant example of the vintage and of this terroir. Give it another several years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 10-15 years. This sleeper of the vinta ...Read More »

1996 Batailley, Pauillac Back In Stock!
1996 Batailley, Pauillac

Jancis Robinson: "Mid crimson. Lightweight, low-key nose. Sweet start and then a bit of acidity and some rather green tannins. Pretty astringent finish. Maybe with a bit more time this will blossom? Drink 2013-2025." (9/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Batailley's 1996 is a well-structured, old style Pauillac with a dense ruby/purple color, earthy, cedar-tinged, black currant fruit in the aromatics and flavors, medium body, an excellent mid-palate, good depth, and a moderately tannic, firm, but pure finish. This very good to excellent Batailley will keep for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2003-20 ...Read More »

1970 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion Back In Stock!
1970 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Cheval Blanc dinner at The Ledbury. This has always been a great 1970 Saint Emilion. It has a noticeable deep hue. The nose is unashamedly rustic with mulberry, crushed flowers, wild heather and a touch of chlorophyll. Great definition and vibrancy: a wine wallowing in its secondary aromas. The palate has fine definition and demonstrated much more backbone than the Cheval ’78 tasted alongside. Here, the Merlot is undaunted by the Cabernet Franc and lends it a beguiling fleshiness, especially towards the ferrous finish. This is wonderful, that i ...Read More »

1989 Soutard, St-Emilion (1.5L) Back In Stock!
1989 Soutard, St-Emilion (1.5L)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my all-time favorite vintages from Soutard, this wine, which is quite dense, concentrated, muscular, and full-bodied, still has a dark garnet/plum/purple color and a nose of damp earth, liquid minerals, plum, and cassis intermixed with some licorice and cedar. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, and aging at a glacial pace. Quite pure, intense, but still not ready to drink, this is a wine for serious connoisseurs. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020. (RP)" (12/2002)

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

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 2010 Haut-Brion, it does not have the power of Latour’s 2010 or the intense lead pencil shavings and chocolaty component of Lafite-Rothschild, but it is extraordinary, perfect wine. It has a slightly lower pH than the 2009 (3.7 versus the 2009's 3.8), and even higher alcohol than the 2009 (14.6%). The wine is ethereal. From its dense purple color to its incredibly subtle but striking aromatics that build incrementally, offering up a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas ranging from charcoal and camphor to black currant and blueberry liqueur and s ...Read More »
