2007 Labegorce Zede, Margaux $29.99
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cigar and tobacco smoke on the nose. Violet and floral on palate with good balance. Firm rugged tannins and a moderate length. (RP)" (4/2000)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A tasty effort from the Reiffers family, this 2007 (70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits dusty, earthy notes, a lush, medium-bodied style, and abundant black cherry fruit, herb, and spice characteristics. It is deep and medium-bodied...(RP)" (4/2010) Wine Spectator: "Berry and black olive on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a medium-to-light finish. (JS, Web-2008)"
90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This has really come on since the futures tastings in 2008. Today, the wine shows pedigree, the dusty tannins ripe, fitting well with the spice, acidity and soft, generous fruit. Concentration comes through from the solid final fruit flavors. (RV)" (4/2010) Wine Spectator: "Blackberry and hints of spices on the nose lead to a full body...(JS, Web-2010)" K&L Notes: This property does not exist anymore as its vineyards go into the Labegorce label.
95 points Wine Enthusiast: "A big and powerful wine, with tannins that are compact and dense. The dryness of the tannins go right to the core, surrounded by chocolate, sweet fruit and dark berry flavors. The wine is well structured, big and bold, with plenty of firmness promising aging." (4/2010) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Latour is the most recent late-release from the First Growth estate that abandoned en primeur after the 2011 vintage. Incidentally, this was the first vintage that Frédéric Engerer made with cellar technical director, Hélène Génin. "It was not an easy wine when it was young," he rem ...Read More »

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong effort from this well-run estate, the 2007 Fleur Cardinale may turn out to be as good as the 2009, which is a slightly more ruggedly constructed and bigger wine, but not necessarily better. The 2007 is a mid-weight blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields were only 35 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine hit 13.5% natural alcohol. Sweet black currant and blueberry fruit intermixed with spring flower, graphite, and subtle wood aromas are followed by an intense, richly fruity St.-Emilion with low acids, sweet, r ...Read More »
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has a much more precocious nose than other 2007s: honey, apricot, peach, a touch of spice, mandarin and a soupcon of warm alcohol, in other words, quintessential Doisy-Vedrines. The palate is full-bodied, viscous on the entry and maintaining good balance, fine acidity cutting through the rich honey, quince and apricot fruit, with great definition and vitality towards the botrytis-rich finish. There is real pedigree here, and the 2007 surely represents their best wines since the triumvirate of 88, 89, and 90. This is a benchmark Doisy-Vedrines. Drink ...Read More »
91 points Wine Spectator: "Shows blackberry, fresh mushroom and Indian spices on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, glorious finish for the vintage. Well-crafted as usual. Best after 2013. (JS)" (3/2010) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Vieux Château Certan has a nonchalant, earthy, well-defined bouquet that you might be tempted to locate on the Left Bank rather than the Right. Hints of wild mint, clove and bay leaf become more pronounced as it unfolds, though this is a Pomerol that is not inclined to click into fifth gear. The palate is medium-bodied, the Cabernet component quite noti ...Read More »

2007 Angélus, St-Emilion
Bid on this bottle of 2007 Angélus, St-Emilion (92RP, 92WE, 91ST). Robert Parker: "A super effort from proprietor Hubert de Bouard, this blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc exhibits sweet notes of chocolate, charcoal, blackberries, and jammy cherries in its round, opulent, fleshy personality. Yields were 35 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine achieved 13.5% natural alcohol. Low acidity and ripe tannin make for a voluptuous style of Angelus to drink now and over the next 10-15 years.

89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Ripe but subdued aromas of black raspberry, licorice, mocha and espresso. Dense, sappy and quite sweet for 2007, with a firm licorice edge and a saline nuance to the dark berry and spice flavors, giving the wine an uncompromising dryness. But this has the silky, velvety, Burgundian texture that long-time fans of this domain love. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lingering notes of mocha, coffee and licorice. (ST)" (6/2008) Jancis Robinson: "Evolved ruby. Sweet dark chocolate plus greenness on the nose. Very mellifluous at first but it’s just not quite p ...Read More »
