2004 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This 'super second' lives up to its billing. It is rich and concentrated with dark tannins that lie over the ripe, jammy fruit and black, rich chocolate flavors. Acidity and wood are there, but only just hints after the richness of the fruit. A real, magnificent aging wine. (RV)" (6/2007) 95 points Wine Spectator: "*#6 on Top 100 Wines of 2007, Collectibles* Intense aromas of currant, blackberry and light vanilla. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Layered, with everything in the right proportion for the vintage. Excellent. Reminds me of the 1996. (JS) ...Read More »

2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "Stunning aromas of licorice, blackcurrants, minerals, dried rose petals and wet earth. Full body, incredibly intense fruit yet this remains compacted and toned with tannins. Long, long finish. What a wine." (3/2015) 94-97 points Vinous: "The 2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the richest, most explosive wines of the year. Scents of blackberry jam, crème de cassis, graphite, pencil shavings, exotic spices and lavender meld into a plush core of super-ripe fruit in a decidedly opulent, full-throttle Ducru that is strikingly beautiful today. The 2014 is likely to require many years t ...Read More »

2012 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

95 points James Suckling: "Mesmerizing aromas of blackberries, licorice and mint. Wet stones too. Full-bodied and tight with super-refined and polished tannins that are pinpointed and elegant. It caresses your palate. Savory and salty on finish. Electric for the vintage. Better in 2018." (2/2015) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a wine with big tannins and big fruit. You can feel the wood rather than taste it, certainly smell it initially before the black currant aromas kick in. Impressive and sumptuous, it has a solid density that layers with the smoky character of the fruit and wood. Ri ...Read More »

2003 Saint-Pierre, St-Julien

94 points James Suckling: "Mint, blackberry, and currant on the nose follow through to a full body, with soft velvety tannins and a new wood and ripe fruit aftertaste. Tight and firm, but wait until after 2012 to pull the cork." (3/2011) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beefy, masculine, vigorous, full-bodied wine, the 2003 Saint-Pierre is just beginning to hit full maturity. A lovely bouquet of cedarwood, forest floor, roasted herbs, black currants, new saddle leather and spice is followed by a long, well-made, beefy, rich, voluptuously textured wine with low acidity and ripe tannin. Drink it over the next 7-8 yea ...Read More »

2015 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Leoville Barton is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot picked between 19-22 September and 28 September until 5 October for the Merlot and Cabernet respectively. Matured in 60% new oak, it has a more compelling and intense bouquet than the 2015 Langoa Barton at this early stage, whereas in other years I have found the siblings closer together. It delivers some lovely blackberry, sage and cigar box scents. The palate is very refined with edgy tannin, beautifully balanced with seamlessly integrated oak. It is the classic Léoville-Barto ...Read More »

2013 Lagrange, St-Julien

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. The wine opens with concentrated, plush fruit. Dense tannins give power to the wine, but are softened on the finish by a bright acidity. (RV)" (6/2014) 91 points James Suckling: "Aromas and flavors of cranberry, plum and flowers. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink or hold." (2/2016) 87-90 points Vinous: "Dark red-ruby. Highly perfumed, refined aromas of red cherry, raspberry eau de vie, minerals and rose petal, complicated by sweet spices. Bright and clean in the mouth, with lively acidity lifting the red fruit and spicy floral flavors at the back. Finishes with repeating no ...Read More »

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (92W&S, 91RP, 90ST, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This opaque purple-colored, muscular, full-bodied, classically made St.-Julien displays impressive concentration, chewy, highly-extracted flavors of black fruits, iron, earth, and spicy wood, and a powerful mouth-feel. A pure, uncompromising, traditionally-styled wine, it is to be admired for its authenticity, class, and quality. (RP)" (04/2011)

1990 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Believe it or not, the 1990 Leoville Barton can actually be drunk - something that cannot be said about the broodingly backward, still excruciatingly tannic 1982. The exceptionally concentrated 1990 reveals more polished, sweeter tannins along with a big, sweet kiss of black currant, forest floor, cedar, and spice box notes. While it still has some tannins to shed, this full-bodied, powerful, long wine is approachable. It should continue to evolve for another two decades. 93+ (RP)" (6/2009) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby color with a red edge. Subtle aromas of black cherry an ...Read More »

2000 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

95 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended, Top 100 Wines of 2003* Absolutely wonderful aromas of flowers, currants and citrus. Full-bodied, yet very, very refined, with a center core of fruit that tastes like crushed raspberries and goes on and on. Greatest wine from this estate since 1945." (3/2003) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very strong effort for Gruaud Larose, possibly eclipsed by what they have done in 2009, this is a pure, full-bodied Gruaud Larose with plenty of new saddle leather, cedar wood, black currants, cherries, licorice, and Provencal herbs. Spicy, earthy, full-bodied, and rich, it has h ...Read More »
