2013 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) Back In Stock!
2013 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "Dense yet agile Smith with dried apple, lemon, aniseed, and gunpowder aromas and flavors. Some stones too. Full body, very racy and fine." (2/2016) 96 points Wine Spectator: "This has a gorgeous feel, with opulent fruit offset by racy herb notes and acidity as lemon sherbet, shortbread and white peach flavors are backed by a salted butter– and tarragon-laced finish. Hints of talc and fennel skitter in the background. Seriously long and still a touch youthful on the finish, this is one for the cellar. Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Sémillon.

2010 Ormes de Pez, St-Estèphe

95 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromas of currants and blackberries with hints of spices. Full body, with fabulous tannins and a long and creamy texture to the finish. I love the depth of fruit to this. Best ever from here. Great value for the vintage. Try in 2017." (2/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Although this wine has tannins, it's the fruit that shines, with its delicious black-currant flavor and acidity. It is more fine and elegant than it is powerful, a pleasant surprise from Saint-Estèphe in this vintage For medium-term aging." (2/2013) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Intense red cherry, raspberry and floral ar ...Read More »

2010 Gloria, St-Julien Back In Stock!
2010 Gloria, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Gloria is an ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate, which would probably be classified if the 1855 hierarchy of the wines of the Medoc were ever done again. Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. It is slightly more restrained than the flamboyant 2009, but equal in quality. This is a juicy, well-proportioned, sensationally concentrated, super-ripe Gloria to drink over the next decades. Of course, it is a sleeper of ...Read More »

(4/2014) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 54% Sauvignon Blanc, 28% Semillon and 18% Muscadelle raised 50% in new oak, this has a fragrant bouquet with scents of apple peel, dried apricot and a hints of white peach that is well defined. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, nicely integrated oak, which then eases off the accelerator towards the finish.

91 points Robert Parker: "A revelation, this stunning wine (also reasonably priced) has turned out to be even better than I thought. Opaque purple-colored, with gorgeous ripeness and richness, a big, sweet mid-palate, and a seamless finish revealing loads of fruit, chocolate, glycerin, and ripe tannin, this opulently-styled 2000 will have few detractors. It is hard not to be totally seduced by this effort. Kudos to proprietor Bernard Magrez and his omnipresent oenologist, Michel Rolland. Bravo! Anticipated maturity: Now-2015." (04/03)

This is one I always like. Best after 2010." (04/03) According to Robert Parker: "Atypically powerful, the concentrated, medium to full-bodied 2000 displays more tannin and structure than usual as well as abundant concentration and sweet black cherry fruit.

2013 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac New!
2013 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This has a palpable dry element, with the black currant flavor cut by dark chocolate. It has strong tannins and power. It will need to age." (4/2014) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Lynch-Bages is unusual but also quite pretty. In this vintage the flavors are quite dark, with distinct dark red/purplish overtones. Dried flowers, cloves and sage are some of the notes that develop with time in the glass. The 2013 finishes with lovely length and precision. The blend is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. (AG)" (4/2014) 91-92 points James Suckling: "A pretty and ...Read More »

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.

2007 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml) Back In Stock!
2007 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. The Doisy-Vedrines 2007 has a typically ostentatious bouquet with ebullient tropical fruit, quince and orange essence with fine definition. The palate is medium-bodied with a very rounded texture, lovely pure honeyed fruit with orange rind and tang of marmalade. It is very generous towards the finish, which lacquers the palate in its decadent richness. Not quite in the same league as previous encounters but then, this Barsac always needs time to blossom. Tasted January 2011." (2/2012) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, pale gold. Reticent but p ...Read More »

2005 Coutet, Sauternes

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 »

1982 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (high shoulder)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is no question that Leoville Poyferre was not making wines at the level of quality they have since 1990. That said, the 1982 is a great wine, no doubt because of the vintage rather than the winemaking at that time. A brilliant effort, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a sweet, flowery bouquet revealing plenty of creme de cassis, plum, and cherry notes, stunning concentration, a boatload of power, sweet tannins (the sweetest and easiest to taste among the St.-Juliens), and a long finish.

I drank a bottle last week in Shanghai at Fook Lam Moon restaurant with some friends and my girlfriend and it was wonderful, with dark chocolate, mushrooms and black truffle character that turned to dried fruits such as light prunes. It's full-bodied with amazing decadent fruit and a dense palate. Soft textured, long and delicious. So rich and gorgeous. Drink or hold. It was excellent with the roasted ...Read More »

Chewy and fleshy, with sweet fruit, ripe tannin, medium to full body, and a sexy mouthfeel, it should be enjoyed between 2005-2016.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My early notes on this wine were inconsistent, but two tastings of the 1981 in the late eighties revealed a flattering, gentle, medium-bodied wine with a smoky, vanillin oakiness, round, ripe flavors, and a soft, luscious finish. It lacks some guts and richness by the standards of most Haut-Brion vintages since 1978, but, nevertheless, it is a charming, lighter-weight, forward wine that has reached its plateau of maturity."

The wine has power and a future that will be medium-term." (4/2014) 88-90 points Vinous: "Dark cherries, tobacco, scorched earth, smoke and game inform the 2013 Clerc-Milon.

It is full-bodied and multi-dimensional, with a big, juicy texture and loads of plum, blackcurrant, spicy oak and minerality.

This is such a pretty Saint Emilion that you almost overlook its length and persistence. It is one of the best wines that I have tasted from the estate. (NM)" (4/2016) 90-93 points Vinous: "The Cuvelier family's 2015 Côte du Baleau is a very pretty wine. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, herbs, smoke and earthy not ...Read More »

1989 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion New!
1989 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very youthful wine that probably will never hit the heights of the 1990 (but how many wines do?), this dense ruby/purple-colored wine has a very pure nose of roasted espresso, black cherry jam, blackberry, mineral, and even a hint of blueberry. Some smoke and high-quality toasty new oak are there, but now that seems to be fading into the background. Quite full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated, yet at the same time elegant, this wine still seems very young and unevolved. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025. Last tasted, 11/02. (Bordeaux Book)" (1/2003) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Sedu ...Read More »

2001 Monbousquet, St-Emilion

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The home estate of Chantal and Gerard Perse, the 2001 Monbousquet (a 7,500-case blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon bottled unfined and unfiltered) is a big, flamboyant, sexy offering with a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of licorice, dried herbs, smoke, black currants, and blackberries. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, opulent, and forward, this is a juicy, succulent, seductive claret to drink over the next 10-12 years." (6/2004) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red-ruby. Expressive, in-your-face aromas of black raspb ...Read More »

2007 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes Back In Stock!
2007 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Packed with botrytis, this is a wine whose sweetness is suppressed by richness. Flavors of bitter oranges and white figs go with the intense core of botrytis, followed by a touch of bright acidity. This is a wine whose journey is just beginning. (RV)" (6/2010) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cropped over 7 tries with 130 grams per liter of residual sugar, the 2007 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey has a generous bouquet with almond, dried honey, minerals and yellow flowers – a little resinous and almost Barsac-like at first, though developing more botrytized aromas with time. ...Read More »

2001 Léoville-Poyferré, St. Julien (1.5L)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The completeness of 2001, with its miraculous balance, is present in this wine. The acidity, ripe blackcurrants sit comfortably on top of dry tannins, the fleshiness of the fruit taking the edge off the tannins. It seems to bring out the structure, the fruit and the refreshing acidity of great Cabernet." (12/2007) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sweet notions of plums, black currants, caramel, and spicy oak are provocative and alluring. Subtle but substantial, layered, and textured, with medium body as well as sexy, up-front flavors, low acidity, and ripe tannin, this beauty is among the ...Read More »

2013 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

95 points James Suckling: "Fresh and aromatic with green papaya and lime character. Mango too. Full body, lazer guided palate with beautifully integrated fruit and wood. A great dry white Bordeaux. Drink now." (2/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A fabulous white wine from Malartic’s 17.5 acres of white grapes, this blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon hit 13.5% natural alcohol. It offers plenty of fresh fig, honeysuckle and orange blossom notes in a dense, concentrated, rich style. The wine’s beautiful acidity and fragrance confirm that this was one of the finest white wines produced in Bordeaux in 2 ...Read More »

1999 Pavie Decesse, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a strikingly delineated St.-Emilion with an opaque ruby/purple color, and aromas of black currants, blackberries, and wet steel/liquified minerals. The layered, rich, intense 1999 possesses superb fruit purity and medium to full body. This is one of the most concentrated and potentially longest-lived wines of the vintage. (RP)" (4/2002) Decanter: "Very fresh pure fruit nose. Gorgeous fruit quality and fine fruit. Pretty, well balanced, elegant wine which has well-matched, good fruit. Good polish, origin and class."

(JS, Web-2008)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. The Rieussec 2007 has a subtle nose of dried honey, pear, a touch of quince and crushed stone on the nose, the oak better integrated than last year. The palate is well-balanced with stem ginger and honeycomb on the entry. It is linear compared to its peers, there is no flourish on the finish as yet, but it has fine definition and hints of tangy marmalade and lemongr ...Read More »

2012 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion

94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Canon La Gaffelière possesses striking aromatic presence, beautifully layered fruit and exceptional balance. This is arguably the most refined, precise wine in Stephan von Neipperg's stable, which is not surprising given the blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Rose petal, mint and generous red stone fruits meld into the creamy yet understated finish. This is a striking 2012 that speaks to finesse. (AG)" (1/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "Beautiful nose of strawberries, cherries and cedar notes. Shaved chocolate, too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a juicy an ...Read More »

1999 Clos de l'Oratoire, St-Emilion

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This opaque purple-colored St.-Emilion is one of the starts of the vintage. The wine exhibits aromas of new saddle leather, damp earth, blackberries, incense, cassis, and toast. An intriguing tapenade note emerges with airing. It is full-bodied, with sweet tannin, low acidity, and impressive concentration. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 12-13 years." (2/2002) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers sweet blackberry and floral aromas, with cappuccino undertones. Full-bodied, offering a lovely core of ripe fruit and silky tannins. Long and caressing finish. A beautiful wine here. ...Read More »

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A brilliant effort, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a sweet, flowery bouquet revealing plenty of creme de cassis, plum, and cherry notes, stunning concentration, a boatload of power, sweet tannins (the sweetest and easiest to taste among the St.-Juliens), and a long finish. Although close to full maturity, it has at least 20-25 years of life remaining." (6/2009) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium ruby. Refined, floral aromas of black- and redcurrant, minerals and graphite; at once very ripe and subdued. Juicy, precise and penetrating; not hugely fleshy but stylish an ...Read More »

(3/2003) Jancis Robinson: "Deep, glossy crimson. Toasty nose. Solid, cheerful, plump, very representative Pomerol. Hides nothing. Perhaps no great hidden depth. What you see is what you get." (1/2005) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A seductive, classic Pomerol in its open-knit, forward display of roasted coffee scents intermixed with caramel, black cherry jam, and some sweet, toasty oak, this is a lush, medium to full-bodied, dark ruby-colored ...Read More »
