2016 La Tour de Mons, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) New!
2016 La Tour de Mons, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "Dense and chewy with very firm and silky tannins. Full-bodied and powerful. Better than the 2015." (4/2017) 91 points Decanter: "Here we are stepping up a gear for this estate, with careful but not shy fruit extraction, some real intensity to the silky raspberry and bilberry flavours, and tannins that cradle without overpowering the fruit. Brilliant value for money in a wine where you get a hint of the floral silkiness of Margaux. Owned by CA Grands Crus, the same group that owns Grand Puy Ducasse, Tour de Mons is benefitting from recent investments together with the sure touc ...Read More »

2015 D'Archambeau, Graves New!
2015 D'Archambeau, Graves

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 d'Archambeau has a strong graphite, pencil box scent on the nose - very Graves in style, almost austere in the context of the vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin, gritty in the mouth with earthy, saline notes on the finish. It's a "grumpy" Graves...but I kind of like it. (NM)" (4/2016)

2016 Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival) New!
2016 Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "Tight and chewy yet polished and beautiful. Medium to full body, a pretty core of fruit within the center palate and a flavorful finish. Better than 2015 and on the same level as the excellent 2014." (4/2017) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Sociando-Mallet has a refulgent purple/black color. It has a very intense and rich, you might say "ambitious" bouquet with layers of small black cherries, blueberry and a touch of sloes, less tertiary than previous vintages and certainly more opulent. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe tannin that almost disguise the firm structure u ...Read More »

2016 Clos St-Julien, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) New!
2016 Clos St-Julien, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Vinous: "The 2016 Clos Saint Julien is magnificent. In many vintages, ripeness is pushed to the edge, or perhaps even beyond, but in 2016 all the elements come together to yield a Clos Saint Julien that is long on class and elegance. There is plenty of fruit intensity and richness, but the wine remains light on its feet, aromatically expressive and profoundly beautiful. Readers should expect a relatively understated Clos Saint Julien built on persistence more than heft. (AG)" (4/2017) 93-94 points James Suckling: "Very tight and intense with lots of dark fruit and minerals. Full body, polished ...Read More »

2016 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (3L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is phenomenal with a density and finesse that are hard to remember for this wine. Full-bodied, tight and polished. Seamless texture and salty undertones. Goes on for minutes. Truly great. What a barrel sample." (4/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Pape Clement is a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon this year, picked from 30 September until 19 October at 48 hectoliters per hectare. The first bottle that I tasted with Bernard Magrez and his team felt a little overdone, but I had a strong suspicion that it was not a representative bottle. A second bottle was m ...Read More »

2016 Talbot, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Pure, with a core of cassis and blueberry fruit streaming through, carried by ample yet embedded graphite-edged grip. Keeps a fresh feel through the finish. Lovely. (JM)" (4/2017) 92-95 points Vinous: "The 2016 Talbot is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Black cherry, plum, gravel, smoke, lavender and mint all flesh out in this decidedly imposing, vertical Saint-Julien. Concentrated and forbiddingly tannic at this stage, the 2016 is going to need at least a few years to start coming into its own. It should age gracefully for decades.The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Me ...Read More »

2016 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. From one of the three chateaus owned by the Barton family, this wine is showing its pedigree. It has elegance as well as structured tannins, ripe blackberry fruits and ample acidity. It is likely to age well over the medium term. (RV)" (4/2017) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "The fresh blueberry, cherry and black currant flavors give this a wide range, while racy graphite and a mouthwatering anise streak drive the finish. The fruit is so enticing that you lose track of how solidly built this is through the finish.

2016 Siran, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is another chateau that's on the rise. This vintage has produced a powerful wine, solid with tannins and concentration. It also has all the fruit that this year has produced. It will age well, being ready to drink in 10 years. (RV)" (4/2017) 94-95 points James Suckling: "This is a great follow-up to the 2015! Full-bodied, chewy and powerful. Solid core of ripe fruit and intense tannins. A triumph... again." (4/2017) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Siran is a blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc picked from 26 September until 20 October.

2010 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) New!
2010 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Administrator Christian Seeley thinks the 2010 is the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron he has ever made, equaling some of the estate’s colossal wines from vintages such as 1989 and 1990. It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January. Opaque purple, with loads of charcoal, licorice, incense and some exotic Asian spices along with abundant cassis liqueur, blackberry and hints of roasted coffee and spring flowers, it is full-bodied and opulent, with relatively high tannins, but they have sweetened up considerably and seem less aggr ...Read More »

2016 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "This is very tight and focused with blackberries, blackcurrants and licorice. Lots of crushed stones, too. Full-bodied, tightly wound and pretty. Exciting second wine from Ducru." (4/2017) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 La Croix de Beaucaillou is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot that is matured in 60% new oak for 12 months and the remainder in one-year-old barrels. It has quite a rich and opulent bouquet, quite glossy with scents of kirsch, crushed strawberry, crème de cassis and a touch of vanilla.

2016 Palmer, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

99-100 points James Suckling: "I wrote that the 2015 was incredible, and this 2016 is again. It’s equally structured and powerful as the 2015, yet there’s an underlying intellectual serenity to this wine. You taste it, and you want to know and experience it even more. Full and tannic yet ever so polished and beautiful. Mesmerizing. Made from biodynamically grown grapes." (4/2017) 98-100 points Wine Enthusiast: "Potentially an 100-point wine, this is beautifully ripe and rich, with sweet tannins as well as opulent black fruit tones. A higher than usual proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend gives the wine its de ...Read More »
