2014 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "A beautiful young wine with raspberries and plums. Full, round and juicy. So much berry character. Round tannins and bright acidity." (3/2015) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Langoa Barton 2014 is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc cropped between 25 September and 8 October and raised in 60% new barrels. It has a backward nose that is tightly buttoned down: hints of blackberry, briary and cedar developing with time. The palate is harmonious with fine tannins, good density here for a Langoa Barton with new oak beautifully interwoven and fillin ...Read More »

(3/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Lanessan has quite a punchy, fruit-driven bouquet with well-integrated oak, a Lanessan with more sense of purpose than I have found in recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine blackberry and raspberry fruit, fine tannin, leading to a smooth and harmonious finish, which lingers nicely in the mouth. You know, this is ...Read More »

2015 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a generous, rounded, juicy wine, with already a fine balance between tannins and fruit. Black currant flavors are contrasted by a dry, solid core that shows the wine's impressive potential. (RV)" (4/2016) 95-96 points James Suckling: "A dense and savory red with plenty of phenolic texture and ripe fruit character. Hints of walnut and spice too. Chewy finish. Solid center palate." (4/2016) 93-96 points Vinous: "The 2015 Léoville-Poyferré is simply magnificent. Rich, creamy and voluptuous in the glass, the 2015 captures all the best qualities of the vintage in spades.

This is structured and powerful. Needs at least five to six years to come around. Best Monbousquet ever?" (4/2012) 94 points Wine Spectator: "This very structured, but polished, style shows a solid coat of coffee for the large core of crushed fig, plum sauce and steeped black currant fruit. Stays dense, but has a strong graphite and iron edge buried deeply on the finish, which should let this assimilate in the cellar. Lovely mineral, s ...Read More »

This wine will age well. (RV)" 90-91 points James Suckling: "A solid wine with tar, dark chocolate and berry character. Full and chewy. Impressive." (3/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Beaumont has a straightforward blackberry and raspberry bouquet that feels a little subdued at the moment and needs a tad more harmony.

(7/2014) 94 points Wine & Spirits: "Lagrange produced a joyous cabernet in 2005, with the lovely textural fatness and kindness of tannin that places it clearly in St-Julien. The dark fruit has youthful energy, the tannins a woodsy undertone, like biting into a fresh grilled porcini. The purity of the flavor makes it delicious; that fruit purity is the factor distinguishing the best wines of the vintage. In the case ...Read More »

2005 La Couspaude, St-Emilion (Elsewhere $80)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An outstanding sleeper of the vintage, the 2005 may turn out to be one of the finest examples yet of this modern-styled St.-Emilion. Nicely oaked, ripe but not over-ripe, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as sweet scents of pain grille, kirsch liqueur, and black currants. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, and rich, with good glycerin as well as freshness, and a long, heady finish, this succulent offering should be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years." (4/2006)

The palate turns to leaves, cedar and dried berries on the finish, which goes on and on. This is still reserved for the vintage, suggesting a long life ahead. Just coming around now, but will improve many years ahead. I have always loved this Lynch. (JS, Web-2010)" 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I have tasted the Château Lynch Bages 1989 several times since my last penned note in 2010.

2009 Doisy-Daëne "L'Extravagant" Sauternes (375ml) (Previously 200)

98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are probably around seven casks of the 2009 L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daene, although that may decrease a little after racking. An equal blend of Semillon and Sauvignon, it delivers a record 220gms residual sugar and yet still exudes astounding minerality and precision, with touches of clear honey, frangipane and cold wet stones. The palate is full-bodied with a mellifluous texture, perfect acidity to slice through that rich botrytized fruit, stunning balance, citrus peel, apricot, Clementine, lemon curd and a hint of ginger.

The tight, mineral texture promises good aging. (RV)" (3/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "Wow. Lots of lilac and honeysuckle with sliced apples and lemon character. Some minerals.

Its pure black currant fruit is tightly coiled, supported by just the right amount of firm tannins. Great aging potential. A triumph." (6/2008) 96 points James Suckling: "This offers aromas of spices, dried dark fruits, meat and berries. Full and muscular on the palate, with strong tannins and a long, long finish. This is very powerful and chewy, but a little bit tight. This is a wine for the cellar. Don’t touch this until 2018."

(2/2013) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The second wine of Haut-Brion is now called Le Clarence de Haut-Brion, and the 2010 is among the finest I have tasted there. It is a broad, powerful and more muscular wine than its cross-street rival, La Chapelle de la Mission, but all the same, it is wonderfully fresh and precise, with notes of blueberry and boysenberry as well as hints of smoke and wet stones.

Anise, warm pain d'épices and a lingering alder note add length on the finish. Very solid. (JM, Web-2016)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sweet cedar, plum, currant, and fresh herbs cascade from this evolved, dense ruby/purple-colored 2000.

A fabulous wine. The best Clerc in a very long time." (3/2008) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fine and impressive even in this vintage, Clerc Milon’s 2005 has a dense purple color and a beautifully sweet, creamy blackcurrant nose of cedar wood and flowers. Spicy, earthy, rich, and medium to full-bodied, it will probably be at its best between 2020 and 2035.

Choosing between the various barrels to make the final blend will be even tougher than usual this year." (4/2015) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Climens was tasted from several lots that Bérénice Lurton and her team are preparing to blend together during its barrel maturation.

1975 Magdelaine, St-Emilion (1.5L)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby with a hint of garnet at the rim; the dark color has always been a characteristic of the wines of 1975. Very closed nose hints at ripe red cherry, fresh orange peel, flowers, leather and cinnamon. Cherry-vanilla, cassis and cedar flavors are somewhat chunky and sweet, and are lifted by an intense mineral note. The finish features a tangy cherry skin note and lingers with good saline and spicy length, but the tannins are distinctly chewy. I like this wine's big, rich mouthfeel, but I find it a little less refined than many other vintages of Magd ...Read More »

The acidity cuts through the intense richness, leaving a wine that needs time to fully integrate, and then many more years to mature." (06/10) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Guiraud 2007 has a typically unabashed, exuberant bouquet with tangerine, pear, white peach and honeysuckle.

(2/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best wine under this moniker that Jean-Luc Thunevin has yet produced, his homage to himself (or is it me?) is a delicious, fruit-forward sleeper of the vintage.

Rich toffee finish helped by 30% new oak." (4/2016) 92-93 points James Suckling: "A dense and racy red with dried berry and plum character, mineral and salt undertones. Full, fresh."

Dense purple in color, with loads of coffee, mocha, creme de cassis, and chocolate notes, this is a somewhat unusual blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, and a whooping 10% Petit Verdot, with a little bit of Cabernet Franc.

However, a bottle tasted, of all places, in Seoul, Korea in February, was only a few points short of perfection.

In fact, the latter vintage may well end up being the modern-day reference point for La Conseillante. Nevertheless, there’s a lot to be said for this 2000.

The 1986 is a highly extracted wine, with a black/ruby color and plenty of toasty, smoky notes in its bouquet that suggest ripe plums and licorice. Evolving at a glacial pace, it exhibits massive, huge, ripe, extremely concentrated flavors with impressive depth and richness. It possesses more power, weight, and tannin than the more opulent and currently more charming 1985." (10/1994) 92 points Wine Spectator: "(No tasting note given.

1990 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

94 points Wine Spectator: "Concentrated. Medium-ruby color, with ripe plum, cigar tobacco and smoke aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Still closed, almost clumsy. Give it time. (JS)" (8/2000) Jancis Robinson: "Very dark blackish crimson. Notably aromatic, even a hint of herbaceousness on this bottle. Lovely balance and spread of mellow aromas. Tannins fully molten. Quite delicate for a 1990. Quite fresh enough on the finish. Subtle with a hint of tarmacadam. Lots of pleasure. Neat. 18/20 points (JR)" (9/2010) K&L Notes: Elegant, feminine, quite delicate for the vintage, a lovely Bordeaux,... Read More »

1989 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full medium ruby. High-pitched, perfumed aromas of dark berries, minerals and violet; very cabernet. Rich, dense and youthful; broad and beefy, with cassis, black cherry and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes very sweet and long, with fine tannins spreading out impressively to coat the palate. A great showing." (8/2002) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Complex aromas of tobacco, earth and forest leaves follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and a fruity and soft finish. Very soft and long. (Web-2010)" Decanter: "Mocha and mineral aromas interwoven with berry fruits. Good weight on the pala ...Read More »

2012 d'Issan, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Château d’Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206).

2002 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better from bottle than from cask, and one of the finest wines of the vintage, this dense purple-colored 2002 reveals wonderfully sweet notes of charcoal, fresh mushrooms, smoke, earth, leather, cassis, and cedar. Full-bodied, highly extracted, broodingly backward, dense, and deep, this impressively endowed offering is built for the long term. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028. (RP)" (4/2005) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Complex nose melds black cherry, cedar, graphite, menthol and chocolate.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Not as concentrated as the 1982, or as most of the vintages made since 2001, the 1990 Cos has reached full maturity. It exhibits sweet berry fruit intermixed with spice box, herbs, and spring flowers. Expansive, round, and sensual, with wonderful purity as well as lushness, this irresistible wine can be enjoyed over the next 6-10 years. (RP)" (6/2009) 92 points James Suckling: "Refined with dark fruits with delicate spice and leather notes. It's full to medium-bodied, with fine tannins. It is a little funky. I would drink it."

93 points Wine & Spirits: "(no tasting note given)" (4/2002) Jancis Robinson: "55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, no Petit Verdot. First wine showing some age at the rim, just a little pinky brick around the garnet. Intensely cedary nose. Leafy verging on green and a note of spring blossom, herbal. Dry, tight and somewhere between taut and elegant. Chalky tannins, fresh and moreish, lacks the richness of earlier vintages tasted but quite refined. Cassis leaf on the palate, classic cigar box.

2005 Palmer, Margaux

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Its bigger sister, the 2005 Château Palmer (53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot), is one of the great efforts of this superlative vintage. Floral notes mixed with blackberry, cassis, plum, licorice and spring flowers soar from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine. It is medium to full-bodied, surprisingly opulent (it has a big percentage of Merlot), long, multi-dimensional and textured. This wonderfully pure, stunning wine once again performs as a first-growth. It should drink well for the next 20-25 years. (RP)" (6/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting ...Read More »

2005 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft. Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, balanced by unrelenting purity of fruit that somehow manages to anesthetize the monstrous tannin, to soften the extremely dry, mineral-bound finish into a caress. The wine may be bombastic, but it's also succulent and as sweet as a ripe black raspberry. It's easy to imagine this wine 50 years from now, in impeccable condition."

1982 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (soiled label, very high shoulder fill)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Whilst I enjoyed several bona fide perfect examples of the 1982 Château Pichon Lalande in the late nineties, my most recent encounters imply that these years were its peak. Nevertheless, it remains a brilliant, benchmark wine that continues to give a great deal of pleasure. This bottle, of perfect provenance, was captivating on the nose - still youthful and jam-packed with very pure and intense black and red fruit, mixed with cedar and graphite notes that ebb away as the Merlot component takes over and delivers strawberry and undergrowth scents.

Roses and other flowers, such as lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of tannins yet incredibly long and seductive. Best after 2012. (JS)" (3/2006) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular success, the opaque plum-colored 2003 Leoville Barton is still on the young side of its plateau of maturity.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is already showing exceptionally well, even though it is not close to its plateau of maturity. The deep ruby/purple color is followed by scents of roasted herbs intermixed with sweet black currant fruit, truffles, vanillin, and minerals. Lush, with ripe cassis fruit on the attack, outstanding balance, medium body, and layers of intensity, this is an elegant, graceful, smoothly textured, beautifully made Bordeaux. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2018. (RP)" (2/1998) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very good deep red. Warm, inviting aromas of plums, hot bricks, leather and spice.
