2012 Clarendelle Rouge, Grand Vin de Bordeaux (Previously $18)

James Suckling: "A balanced glass of red with blueberry, blackberry and shaved chocolate character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Blend of 82% merlot, 16% cabernet sauvignon and 2% cabernet franc. From the family that own Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion. Drink or hold." (2/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is the generic Bordeaux from the Domaine Clarence Dillon. When they first told me about this, I thought it was probably not the best idea in the world, but the quality of the wine speaks for itself. I think they have been right on the money with what they have achieved wit ...Read More »

2012 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

90 points James Suckling: "This is so delicious and wonderful now with fresh strawberries, peppermint and flowers. Medium body, fine tannins and a crisp finish. Elegant." (2/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Fresh and dancing. Some great vivacity. Spice and complete and fresh. Dry end. Edge of a sweet spice reminiscent of gingerbread men. Lovely and polished. Juicy." (4/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Le Pauillac de Château Latour has a pleasant strictness on the well-defined bouquet with black fruit laced with fine mineralité for a third wine. The palate is medium-bodied with a juicy core of fruit, an almost pastille-like purit ...Read More »

2012 Les Grands Chênes, Médoc (Previously $17)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This reliable and over-achieving cru bourgeois from visionary Bernard Magrez is an excellent blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine, aged 16 months in Bordeaux barrels, has a dense ruby/purple color and a classic Médoc profile of cedar wood, blackcurrants, underbrush and forest floor. It is medium-bodied and concentrated, with soft tannins. Drink it over the next 5-8 years. (RP)" (4/2015) Vinous: "Smoke, game, tobacco, incense, plum and blood orange are some of the notes that emerge from the 2012 Les Grands Chênes. Drink this hearty, flavorful re ...Read More »

2012 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Wine Spectator: "Nicely packed, with energetic flavors of blackberry cobbler, blueberry paste and boysenberry coulis, carried by a brambly structure and pushed by anise and ganache accents on the finish. Shows solid grip and should do well with cellaring. This has added some weight since the barrel tasting. Best from 2017 through 2022. (JM)" (3/2015) 90 points Vinous: "A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2012 Brown hits the palate with serious intensity and slightly rough contours that are going to need time to settle down. The high presence of Merlot (70%) and pushed, ripe style add to the wi ...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).

2012 du Glana, St-Julien

90 points James Suckling: "Fine and silky with pretty aromas and flavors of currants and stones. Medium body, dense fruit and fine tannins. Racy finish." (2/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Features a smoldering charcoal edge, with focused plum, cassis and bitter cherry fruit forming the core. Sleek, with iron and loam notes underscoring the finish. Shows solid length and drive, and should age nicely. (JM)" (3/2015)

2012 La Dauphine, Fronsac

90 points James Suckling: "Fresh and elegant fruits such as blackberries and plums. This is a medium-to-full-bodied red with fine tannins and fresh fruity finish. Needs a couple of years to soften. Better in 2017." (2/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The acquisition of this well-known, beautiful estate in Fronsac by proprietor Jean Halley has raised the level of performance dramatically. The 2012, which tips the scales at a whopping 15% alcohol, is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. This is a major sleeper of the vintage.

2012 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc

92 points James Suckling: "This red shows some cassis, blueberries and floral notes on the nose. Some tar, too. Medium to full body, juicy tannins and a fruity finish. Enticing wine. Drink now or hold." (2/2015) 87-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red ruby with purple tinges. Sexy, floral aromas of raspberry, pepper, licorice and spices are vibrant and precise. Juicy, intense and very smooth, with wonderful energy and precision to the flavors of blackberry, licorice and spices. Very nicely balanced, persistent wine with fine tannins and very good grip--and no green or harsh edges. This excellent wine gets m ...Read More »

2012 Reserve de Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

(2/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Réserve de Léoville-Barton has a fruit-driven, open, pure raspberry and crushed strawberry scented bouquet that is simple but designed to seduce. "Punter friendly," as they say. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, fleshy in the mouth, soft tannin with a smudged, easy-drinking finish. (NM)" (10/2016) Wine Spectator: "A bright, fl ...Read More »

2010-2012 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac Vertical
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010-2012 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac Vertical, including 1-bottle of 2010 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (98VN, 96WE, 95RP, 95WS, 94CG, 94JS), 1-bottle of 2011 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (95WE, 93JS, 91WS), and 1-bottle of 2012 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac ((94-96WE), 92JS, 92VN, 92WS, 90RP). Of the 2010 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac,Vinous writes: "An eternal wine, the 2010 Pichon Lalande is a total showstopper. The first impression is one of explosive power, but time in the glass brings out the wine’s more delicate, floral side. Violet, graphite, crème de cassis, licorice and menthol overtones recall the 1996, but the tannins here are much softer, sweeter and more polished. In two recent tastings, the 2010 has been positively stellar. The alternation of hot days and cool nights led to a late harvest. The Cabernet Sauvignon harvest did not start until October 7; by that date in 2009 all the fruit was in. Readers who can still find the 2010 should not hesitate, as it is a mode

2012 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firmly tannic in character, this wine is dry and extracted. There's potential for this powerful, impressive wine to bear the wine's very dry character with the weight of its fruit. (RV)" (4/2013) 92 points Decanter: "Dense black-red, firm, quite spicy Cabernet Sauvignon, both ripeness and firmness is there, elegance over power and a good future. (SS)" (10/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics, Léoville-Barton’s 2012 is a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine.

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. (RP)" (4/2015) 95 points Vinous: "A dark, sensual wine, the 2012 Smith Haut Lafitte boasts marvelous depth and textural richness.

2012 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

(2/2015) 94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Pichon-Longueville Baron is wonderfully aromatic and textured in the glass. Scents of smoke, pipe tobacco and cedar meld into a core of intense dark fruit. Pliant and supple, but with considerable underlying structure, the 2012 is likely to drink well for the next two to three decades, perhaps longer, but it is also going to need at least a few years in bottle for the tannins to ...Read More »

2012 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

Full body, very polished silky tannins and a chewy finish. Lots of richness for the vintage. Persistent palate. This was aged 35% in cement eggs for 12 months. Better in 2018."

(RV)" (4/2013) 92 points James Suckling: "Wonderful nose of wet earth, mushrooms and berries. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Sleek and polished. Needs two to three years of bottle age to soften." (2/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a wine built on finesse.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Close to perfection, this extraordinary blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc seems to have hit all the high notes in 2012. Inky ruby/purple with stunning concentration, a multidimensional mouthfeel, skyscraper-like texture and fabulous purity of blue, red and black fruits, this is a tour de force from this estate owned by Christian Moueix. The potential complexity and sheer compelling quality of Hosanna is amazing. Aromatically, this may be the most profound wine of the vintage. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. (RP)" (04/2015)

Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, this deep ruby/purple colored beauty boasts knockout notes of blackcurrants, dried tobacco, spice box, forest floor and graphite. While it’s a big, rich, full-bodied effort, it just glides across the palate with a weightless, elegant texture. With sweet tannin, a layered, seamless personality and a big finish, this is an incredible wine that’s already offering pleasure, yet will keep for another 15-20 years. ...Read More »

It is medium-bodied, with light tannin in a very approachable style. It is certainly not the most concentrated Monbousquet ever made under the Perse regime, but it is very well-balanced and capable of hitting its prime in about 3-4 years and lasting 12-15."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This great terroir, long owned by the Gratiot family, has come to life under the inspired winemaking of Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt. Some recent vintages have been legendary efforts, especially 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010. The 2012 (83% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc) is right in the competition, with an inky, opaque, bluish/purple color, gorgeously sweet, rich nose of black raspberries, black cherries and currants, and licorice. The wine hits the palate with a full-bodied, thunderous effect. This blend tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol, which is indicative of its fabulously exposed vineyard on a full, steep limestone slope with a primarily southern exposure. This is full-bodied, ripe and one of the great stars of the vintage – again. The wine has full-bodied texture, gorgeous purity, richness and length. Drink it over the ne
