2010 Siaurac, Lalande de Pomerol New!
2010 Siaurac, Lalande de Pomerol

91 points James Suckling: "Dark polished fruit with coffee and sweet licorice. Nice sweetness on the palate with full body and an enjoyable licorice note that carries on all the way through the long finish. Soft tannins and good volume. Drinks well already now." (3/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Deliciously ripe dark plum and boysenberry fruit is carried by fine-grained, sandy tannins and backed by licorice snap and black tea. Direct, pure and tasty.

Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long finish of licorice, berry and currants. Giscours is doing something special. Best ever from here. (JS)" (3/2003) 92 points James Suckling: "This is very perfumed, with mushrooms, berries, and even strawberries. Full and round on the palate with soft tannins and lovely sweet finish. This is very long and balanced, but still needs time. Just starting to open up now, but give it a couple of years."

2014 Capbern, St-Estèphe New!
2014 Capbern, St-Estèphe

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Packed with the dark tannins and structure of Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine, produced by the team of Calon Ségur is intense, concentrated and dark. It has a firm structure, solid and with a luscious aftertaste. The acidity of the year just shows at the end. Drink from 2026. (RV)" (4/2017) 92 points James Suckling: "A self-confident, modern St.-Estèphe with a lot of ripe black fruits and not too much new oak. It’s quite bold and generous, but cool and fresh on the finish. Love the spice! Drink in a year or two, but this will age."

The tannins have a perfect polish to their density, and the finish is very intense, with wonderful fruit and truffle character.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Potensac surpassed my expectations from barrel, because as I stated back then, it has developed more flesh to counterbalance those prenatal hard tannins. It has an attractive if unspectacular raspberry, strawberry and tobacco-scented bouquet, quite closed at first, opaque, but opening with several minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe blackberry fruit laced with tobacco and sea salt. I appreciate the finish here. There is satisfying substance, a gentle grip and a classi ...Read More »

It is spice, packed with black plum and berry flavors. It is a powerful dense wine to age for several years. Drink from 2023.

On the nose, there were intense aromas of iron, pot iron and dried fruits, as well as hints of nuts and wet earth. On the palate, it showed a gorgeous texture of ripe tannins and lots of spicy and currant fruit character. A full-bodied, very soft and silky Bordeaux with lots of flavors and a superb finish.

The palate is seamless with a great line of crisp acid cutting through the densely packed dried tropical fruit and honeyed flavour layers. The finish just goes on and on.

(RV)" (4/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Deyrem Valentin has a lifted raspberry coulis, strawberry and violet-scented bouquet that feels just a little pinched at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly drier tannin than I expected, a Margaux that is molded in a "Classic" style, austere compared to its peers but with the body and density to suggest that it will age nicely over the next decade.

(2/2017) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Piercing and racy in feel for now, with Key lime and Meyer lemon notes turning fuller through the finish, accented by honeysuckle and peach hints. Should put on a little weight in the cellar.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The final blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot has resulted in a wine of great power, stature, gravitas and density. The wine has a black purple color and a brilliant nose of scorched earth, creme de cassis, espresso roast, blackberries, truffles and licorice. Full-bodied, extremely powerful, yet with abundant sweet tannin, this stunning effort should prove sensational if given 7-10 years of cellaring. It should also last for 30-40 years."

1990 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As one might expect, this is a brilliant wine, but it remains shockingly young, even for the fast evolving 1990s. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a classic, nearly restrained set of aromatics that includes notions of sweet black cherries, black currants, lead pencil, and wet stones. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, and while technically low in acidity, there is a freshness, delineation, and classicism in this full-throttle, rich, concentrated, impeccable 1990.

It is a powerful and full-bodied wine with well-integrated tannin. Given Montrose's tendency to shut down, it is performing better out of bottle than I expected. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.

It remains tannic, but its extraordinary perfume of smoked meats, dried herbs, cedar, black fruits, underbrush, and leather is seductive. It is full-bodied, with a sweet, intense mid-palate, plenty of power, and decades of life remaining. This is an under-rated, stunning Latour that may even improve. Anticipated maturity: now-2020."

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1988 Chateau d'Yquem has long been an insider's favorite over the 1989 and 1990, although at the end of the day, all three form a brilliant triumvirate at the end of the decade. Tasted from a half bottle, it shone with a slightly burnished amber hue. The bouquet is just as I have encountered with previous bottles with scents of marmalade, mandarin, burnt honey and citrus fruit, perhaps a little waxier and resinous than I recall. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive weight, viscous as you would expect, though not as flamboyant as the 1989 or as ...Read More »

1992 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (Previously 600) New!
1992 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (Previously 600)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In 1992 only 36% of the harvest was utilized, resulting in a deeply-colored wine with a nearly exceptional cedary, chocolatey, cassis-character, medium body, surprisingly concentrated flavors, as well as the classic Lafite aromatic profile. If discounted, readers should take the opportunity to experience Lafite's finesse in a softer, more precocious vintage. The 1992 Lafite should drink well in 2-3 years and last for 12-20." (12/1994) Wine Spectator: "A real achievement for the vintage, boasting plenty of fruit, tobacco and dark chocolate character. Full-bodied and velvety ...Read More »

2002 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe

92-94 points Wine Spectator: "Fabulous aromas of crushed berries, with cassis and blueberries and hints of spice. Full-bodied and very rich, with a wonderful tannin structure. Long and exotic. (Barrel Tasting)." (6/2003) 90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(the blend is based on 60% cabernet sauvignon) Good saturated medium ruby. Very pure, ripe, floral aromas of black cherry, raspberry, cassis and spices. Juicy, spicy and layered, with strong but well-integrated acidity giving the wine lovely early balance and intensifying its flavors. Broadens out impressively on the back half without losing its shape. Highly promising ...Read More »

2014 Meyney, St-Estèphe (1.5L)

92 points James Suckling: "This is one of the most immediately appealing 2014s from the appellation thanks to its very ripe black fruits, and there’s still a lot of structure behind it. Reminds me of some of Meyney’s top vintages of the 1960s." (2/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, smoke, chocolate, licorice and tobacco are some of the signatures in the 2014 Meyney. This is one of the more overt, flamboyant 2014s readers will come across. Although certainly not a shy wine, it is loaded with personality. The late harvest and the generally intense style favored by consulting winemake ...Read More »

2014 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (375ml)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*** Cellar Selection *** This wine, with its massive tannins and rich fruit, is obviously set for a long life. It does have the contrast of fresh black-currant acidity to give it a lift. But with the power behind it, the wine will develop slowly. (RV)" (2/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "Very aromatic with cherries and blackberries. Hints of flowers. Full body, lightly chewy yet ultra-fine tannins and a fresh finish. Tangy and delicious. Racy." (2/2017) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Léoville-Barton 2014 is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc picked between 25 September ...Read More »

1945 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (pristine fills- bin soiled labels)

Jancis Robinson: "Lots of bark-like sediment but SO sweet, deep and gorgeous!!!! What a treat. Who needs first growths...? A complete fully ripe wine in all sense and no sense of decay. Wonderfully deep flavoured and intense in the throat on the finish. Tasted blind, it seemed much younger though was obviously from a great vintage. We thought possibly 1959. 19.5/20 points." (5/2009) Wine Spectator: "A winner. Rich, ripe and generous, still packing plenty of focused currant and black cherry flavor and layers of smoke, spice and cigar box. Somewhat sharp on aftertaste, but a fine dinner c ...Read More »

1994 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Leognan

Jancis Robinson: "Magnum. Dark blackish ruby with a rusty edge. Much more direction and focus than the 1990. Seems more than four years younger. Vigorous palate attack. Very sweet start with dry end and masses of lively fruit in the middle. A little bit of dried-blood impression (old Merlot) on the end. Good freshness. Not intense but very nice balance. 17.5/20 points." (5/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This property is worthy of readers' interest as the wines continue to go from strength to strength (this is also true of the gorgeous dry white wines being made at Smith-Haut-Lafitte).

2014 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrants and sweet tobacco. Wet earth to boot. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften. Try drinking in 2021." (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a structured wine that still has serious layers of ripe fruit and rich tannins. The black currant from the Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced by the jammy richness of the delicious Merlot. It’s an impressive wine that continues the progress of this estate, owned by Lafite-Rothschild. Drink from 2024.

2012 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan 12-pack in OWC

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque bluish-purple 2012 Smith Haut Lafite offers up notes of licorice, graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, stunningly ripe, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is another sensational effort from the Cathiards that is perfectly balanced, complex, super-rich and pure. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. This is another great turn-around effort that dated from the acquisition of this once moribund estate in 1990, by Daniel and Florence Cathiard. They continue to do an exemplary job with both white a ...Read More »
