2010 Tronquoy de St-Anne, St-Estèphe

Jancis Robinson: "Two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon, one-third Merlot. 40% of production. Very sweet and round and low key – rather forward but with lovely satiny texture. A bit austere: tannins on the finish and it does fall away a little bit, but it’s awfully well done really – even if hardly recognisable as a St-Estèphe! (JR)" (4/2011) K&L Notes: This wine is stunning. The little brother of Tronquoy Lalande and owned by the Montrose people, this wine is packed with fruit--lots of cassis on the palate. Smooth and sweet and delicious.More structure than the 2009-great for the cellar.

2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc

94 points James Suckling: "A wine with blueberry and mineral aromas follows through to a full body, with fine tannins and a juicy finish. Best for years from here. Needs at least three years of bottle age to soften. Could be better than 2009 in the long run." (2/2013) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now).

Full and super silky with lovely fruit. Gourmand. Tasty. I want to drink it. Always great value!" (4/2011) 92 points Vinous: "Fully saturated inky-ruby.

Rock-solid and nicely balanced, this should age elegantly. Best from 2014 through 2024.

Full-bodied, dense purple in color, with floral notes intermixed with blackberries, cassis, graphite and spring flowers, this full-bodied, legendary effort is long and opulent, with wonderfully abundant yet sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate and a thrilling, nearly one-minute finish.

2010 Léognan, Pessac-Léognan

This historic estate dates back to the 17th century, when the property belonged to the monks of St. John. It wasn't until the early 20th century that the owners discovered a promising stretch of gravely-sandy soil and decided to plant 6 hectares of grapes, with advice from their neighboring estate, Domaine de Chevalier. Today their vineyards are planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. With meticulous winemaking, they craft fine wines that stand the test of time. This vintage was the winner of the Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial Bruxelles.

2010 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (100RP, 99WS, 98ST, 98WE, 97JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 2010 Haut-Brion, it does not have the power of Latour’s 2010 or the intense lead pencil shavings and chocolaty component of Lafite-Rothschild, but it is extraordinary, perfect wine. It has a slightly lower pH than the 2009 (3.7 versus the 2009's 3.8), and even higher alcohol than the 2009 (14.6%). The wine is ethereal. From its dense purple color to its incredibly subtle but striking aromatics that build incrementally, offering up a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas ranging from charcoal and camphor to black currant and blueberry liqueur and spring flowers, this wine’s finesse, elegant yet noble power and authority come through in a compelling fashion. It is full-bodied, but that’s only apparent in the aftertaste, as the wine seems to float across the palate with remarkable sweetness, harmony, and the integration of all its component parts – alcohol, t

2010 Trotanoy, Pomerol

98 points James Suckling: "Stunning nose with wild strawberries, vanilla and raspberries. Opens up with a little time in the glass to sweet licorice, blueberries and some graphite. Round and full on the palate with an amazing fruit and refined tannins. Truly superb. Hard not to drink now. Try from 2016." (2/2013) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Think of this wine as the 1998 on steroids! Showing better out of bottle than it did from barrel, this wine has put on considerable weight. It is full-bodied, masculine (as most vintages of Trotanoy tend to be), with loads of earthy, foresty notes intermixed with black and ...Read More »

2010 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien (1.5L)

94 points James Suckling: "I love the aromas of minerals, flowers, blackberries and blueberries. Full body with a fabulous texture of polished and integrated tannins. It goes on for minutes. Spicy, subtle fruit and a long and marvelous finish. Currant bush undertones. A whole and beautiful wine. The second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Drink or hold." (2/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "No longer a second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou, but a wine from its own separate vineyard, Croix de Beaucaillou is impressive. Firm while also rich, it is firmly tannic, superripe and packed with great dark plum and berry fruits. F ...Read More »

2010 Bellevue, St-Emilion

93 points James Suckling: "A beautiful purity of dark fruits to this with currants and blackberries on the nose. Flowers too. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a tangy finish. Attractive citrus character on the finish. Very fine indeed. Better in 2017." (2/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very alluring, with dense but silky-textured layers of boysenberry, fig and blackberry fruit. As this moves toward the finish, extra briar, toasted wood spice and black licorice notes emerge, lending drive and greater definition, without overshadowing the pure fruit. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM)" (3/2013) K&L Notes: 98% Merlot,... Read More »

2010 Barreyres, Haut-Médoc

Jancis Robinson: "50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. Good price! I think this one often ends up on Sainsbury’s shelves...? Dark crimson. Very solid and quite determinedly extracted. Briary and with appealing cassis fruit and a little lift on the palate. If determined and if accompanied by chewy meat, you could enjoy this now even though better to wait. (GV) 16 Points" (10/2012) Wine Spectator: "Features good crushed berry fruit, with a savory lacing and a flash of dark licorice on the finish. Fresh and direct. Drink now through 2015. 50,000 cases made. (JM) Web 2013"

2010 Figeac, St-Émilion (1.5L)

98 points James Suckling: "This is phenomenal on the nose with blackberries, fresh cep mushrooms, forest fruit, and earth. Turns to hazelnuts and dark berries. Subtle. Breathtaking. It's full-bodied on the palate, with superb tannins that last for minutes. The flavor is subtle yet incredible. Love the texture. It is the same wonderful quality level as 2009. This is so fabulous to taste now, but so much better in 2018." (2/2013) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine always stands out as a powerhouse of impressive tannins. In 2010, it is complex with a dense struct ...Read More »
