2005 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien Top Pick!
2005 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Langoa Barton 2005 offers plenty of concentration on the nose: blackberries, blueberry, a touch of cedar and tobacco emerging from the glass, opening and gaining intensity all the time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is beautifully balanced in the mouth, perhaps just a little conservative but with great precision and length. It has the freshness and vitality to be approachable now, though I would prefer to leave this for another 4 or 5 years.

2016 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a powerful wine, with superb tannins and blackberry fruits. It has a dense texture allied to stylish fruitiness and acidity. The result is a wine with the potential to age over a long period of time, while probably showing well starting in 2028. (RV)" (4/2017) 96-99 points Wine Spectator: "This packs some serious punch and drive, with a terrific core of blueberry, açai and plum reduction notes, backed by waves of graphite and roasted apple wood. Has the pleasantly chewy feel typical of St.-Julien, along with an extra-racy graphite edge. (JM)" (4/2017) 96 points Decanter: "Restrained bu ...Read More »

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

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I absolutely loved the 2015 Léoville-Barton and this has everything you could want from a Left Bank Bordeaux. Cassis, smoked earth, graphite, tobacco leaf, and thrilling amounts of minerality all emerge from this inky colored, full-bodied, power-packed, brut of a Saint-Julien that holds everything together and stays pure, balanced and elegant on the palate. It has a lot of tannins, yet more than enough fruit. The 2015 is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot, brought up in 60% new French oak, and it needs 7-8 years of bottle age and will shine ...Read More »

2009 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

Jancis Robinson: "The second wine of Gruaud-Larose, farmed organically. Not overblown. Well mannered with an undertow of the drama of the vintage. Drink 2013-2020." (4/2013) Wine Spectator: "This has a nice beefy edge, offering roasted fig, plum and warm tobacco leaf notes, with bittersweet cocoa inlaid on the slightly gutsy finish. On the rustic side, but solid and winey. This second wine is also released under the Larose de Gruaud label. Best from 2013 through 2020. (JM)" (3/2012) K&L Notes: This second wine of Gruaud Larose performed very well in 2009, with intense concentration and complexity. Plus,... Read More »

2015 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Vinous: "The 2015 Ducru-Beaucaillou is phenomenally great. Inky, powerful and explosive, the 2015 pulses with energy in all of its dimensions. Creme de cassis, blackberry jam, graphite, smoke, leather and incense, along with the wine's muscular tannins, convey an impression of brooding intensity. The 2015 has been nothing short of sensational on the two occasions I have tasted it so far. Readers should be prepared to be patient. Don't miss it!

2014 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "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. Drink from 2025. *Cellar Selection - Top 100 Wines of 2017* (RV)" (2/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "Very aromatic with cherries and blackberries. Hints of flowers.

Notes of cassis, licorice, crushed rocks, lead pencil shavings and graphite all emerge from this unctuous, ripe, pedal-to-the-metal beauty that's absolutely loaded with fruit and texture. Reminding me of the 2003, yet only fresher, don't miss this beauty. It should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 3-4 decades."

2006 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2009* Right at the top of its form, this 2006 is one of the finest wines to come out of the vintage. The wine is structured and dense, but with such heartwarming ripe fruit that the tannins are almost submerged. There is just a hint of wood, but juicy black currant continues right through to the end. In a year, the fruit will lessen, and long aging begin.

Incredible length. A wine that you want to drink now." (2/2017) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a great wine. It has all the elements in place to produce a wine that will last for years: powerful fruit, rich tannins and a structure that is built to last. This is elegant, impressive and concentrated. Almost entirely Cabernet Sauvignon, the grape gives the wine its fruit and its tannins. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (4/2017) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The ...Read More »

A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Merlot, this full-bodied, tight, super-concentrated, focused 2015 boasts an awesome bouquet of crème de cassis, graphite, charcoal, lead pencil, and minerality.

You could drink this now with red meat, but it’s got decades ahead of it." (2/2018) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The ripe fruit that is a hallmark of this vintage at this estate has been maintained along with solid tannins and richness.

Exciting second wine from Ducru."

I tasted the deep, inky-colored 2015 Château Saint-Pierre twice and it’s reminiscent of the 2010, only with more elegance.

1989 Talbot, St-Julien

Jancis Robinson: "Bright bricky garnet. More evidently leafy than the Langoa, and that makes it smell younger, still of blackcurrant leaves and capsicum, even lavender, though there is a light meatiness. Not as long as the Langoa but richer than I expected from the nose. There's still a slight grip in the tannins and I wonder if there always will be. The tannnis may well outlast the fruit. After an hour, more liquorice on the nose and perhaps just a little dry on the palate but not dried out. 17/20 Points (JH)" (7/2010) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark ruby with moderately endowed notes of sweet black ...Read More »

Here, the 2009 has a lifted, perfumed, Burgundy-inspired bouquet that is nicely defined but showing a little more unresolved oak than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit on the entry: strawberry, cedar and blackcurrant. This is strict and very linear, conservative but compelling. The class is here from start to finish and presently stands shoulder to shoulder with its “big bro’”. (NM)" (7/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deceptively approachable wine.

It needs to age and should be ready to drink from 2025.(RV)" (4/2018) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Clos Du Marqu ...Read More »

2004 Duluc de Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (1.5L)

After its purchase in 1988 by the late Patrick Maroteaux, Chateau Branaire Ducru saw its consistency and quality improve ten fold. Serving up classic clarets with excellent aging potential, the value this chateau delivers is incontestable. Patrick's son, Francois Xavier, has done an excellent job following in his father's footsteps as is evidenced in this delightful 2004 bottling. It is a traditional claret that's remarkably lively given its age. Red fruit driven, it offers fresh flavors of bing cherry, raspberry, along with accents of saddle leather an... Read More »

1986 Gloria, St-Julien

2016 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a scintillating display of roasted apple wood, incense and warm ganache before the core of cassis, plum preserves and raspberry reduction starts to step forward. The finish, loaded with grip but remarkably polished, pulls everything together. A huge, undeniable wine, overt in style. (JM)" (4/2017) 96-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Showing how strong the Médoc is in 2016, the 2016 Ducru-Beaucaillou is going to rival the 2009 and 2010 (although it’s more in the style of 2010). Inky colored and loaded with classy notes of crème de cassis, liquid violets, blueberries, graphite and build ...Read More »

2003 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

92 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry, toasted oak, sweet tobacco and espresso. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. I like the texture. Best after 2010. (JS)" (3/2006) 91 points James Suckling: "Spicy and earthy, with lots of ripe fruit. Full bodied, with soft round tannins and a juicy finish. Yummy and decadent. No need to wait, but it will be much better if you pull the cork after 2014." (3/2011) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under the management of Jean Merlaut, this estate has lost some of the super-opulence of the wines of the 90s, and gained finesse and elegance. That has stood the 2003 in good stead ...Read More »

2015 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Velvet tannins are allied with powerful fruit to create a rich wine with signs of the wood aging that smooth it further. It will be a generous wine that will keep its fine fruitiness for many years. (RV)" (4/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "Dark berries, iron and hints of rust with some iodine. Full-bodied, round and juicy with a solid backbone of tannins and focus. This second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Polished. Drink in 2021." (2/2018) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 La Croix de Beaucaillou is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. It has a floral note on the nose: small black ...Read More »

2008 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Good density here, structured, with some jammy sweet fruits as well as a dark layer of dense tannins. The potential is well for a well balanced wine." (12/2009) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While the 2008 is not a blockbuster, it is a strong effort for the vintage. This dark plum/purple-hued wine reveals some background oak, licorice, earth, plum, black currant and cherry notes intertwined with a foresty/mossy component. Deep, polished and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, it builds incrementally on the palate. This impressive 2008 will benefit from 2-3 years of ...Read More »

2014 Talbot, St-Julien

94 points James Suckling: "The smoky oak, full body and chunky tannins make a bold statement; indeed, the wine has plenty of flesh and packs a big tannic punch on the finish. Best Talbot in years." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Talbot is soft, silky and wonderfully nuanced on the palate. Much more refined from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2014 has moved toward greater finesse over the last two years. This is a lovely effort. Lifted rose petal and lavender notes add closing nuance. The blend is 62 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 35 % Merlot and 6 % Petit Verdot.

2008 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the stars of the vintage, and a remarkable achievement in 2008, with impressive richness, this dense purple colored wine is almost as opaque as the 2010. Spring flowers, crushed rocks, creme de cassis and some subtle oak are followed by a full-bodied, concentrated wine that transcends the vintage character in its power, richness, and aging potential. It also exhibits tremendous precision, purity, and depth of character. It is more forward than the 2010 is likely to be, but probably not as sumptuous as the 2009 will turn out to be. This is a wine t ...Read More »
