Deliciously and distinctively rich and full in the mouth but still shapely and refined. Plenty of tannin but all hidden in the fruit.

Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine and a complete contrast to the extracted behemoth of Leoville Barton and the backward, classic Leoville Las Cases.

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

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is concentration in both tannins and fruit and has the potential to be generous in character. Red fruits and blackberry flavors mingle with the dry, firm tannins." (4/2016) 92-93 points James Suckling: "Very ripe and fruit with lots of mature berry and plum character. Full body, round tannins and a savory finish. Juicy." (4/2016) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Langoa Barton is fleshy, open-knit and absolutely delicious. Sweet red cherry and pomegranate are pushed forward, while hints of violet, lavender and spice add freshness and lift to the succulent finish. The gracious, feminine side of Saint-Ju ...Read More »

2001 Saint-Pierre, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ruggedly constructed, with a deep ruby/purple color, this big, rich St.-Julien offers notes of animal fur, black currants, spice box, licorice, and a notion of new oak in the background. Chewy, heady, and muscular, it is a well-made, substantial 2001 to consume between 2007-2015. If more finesse develops, it may merit an outstanding rating. (RP)" (6/2004)

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 »

1985 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine of extraordinary charm and elegance, the dark garnet-colored 1985 Ducru-Beaucaillou has a floral, cedary nose intermixed with red and black currants as well as flowers. The wine is fully mature and soft, with beautiful concentration and purity. It is not a blockbuster, and certainly not nearly as powerful and massive as the 1986, but it is certainly much more seductive. (RP)" (1/2003) Wine Spectator: "Seductive and beautiful. Minty, rich and fruity aromas and flavors caress the palate and tickle the throat. Medium- to full-bodied, with super firm tannins and a long, ...Read More »

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." (6/2007) 95 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles and #6 of Top 100 Wines of 2007* 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. Best aft ...Read More »

2014 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a sophisticated wine, already one of the stars of the vintage. It has a concentrated color and serious tannins that are presented in a stylish package of smooth, polished fruitiness and ample acidity. It is certainly for long-term aging. (RV)" (4/2015) 96-97 points James Suckling: "The aromas to this wine are enchanting with blackberries, dried flowers, blueberries, citrus and stones. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and bright acidity. Citrus skin undertones. Very, very long. Structured. This is 13.8 alcohol meaning the Cabernet was incredibly ripe for the vintage. Yet it remains ...Read More »

2010 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien Top Pick!
2010 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine out distances both Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Barton, but all three of them are compelling efforts. 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. This spectacular effort from Poyferre that should drink well for 30+ years. (98+) (RP)" (2/2013) 98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A wine of architectural strength and cl ...Read More »

2010 Beychevelle, St-Julien

95 points James Suckling: "Beautiful aromas of blackberries, currants and flowers. Very aromatic. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and gorgeous fruit. It's polished and very refined. One of the best Beychevelles in years. Try in 2018." (2/2013) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing better from bottle than it did from barrel, where it was also impressive, but not quite at this level, the 2010 Beychevelle displays sweet black currant, black cherry, foresty notes, medium to full-bodied texture with impressive purity and moderately high tannins (although they’ve softened considerably during the wine’s upbringing i ...Read More »

2012 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. There's great concentration here, on this powerful wine with very dry structure and dark character. The palate hints of a more perfumed character with fine fruitiness and lingering freshness on the finish. (RV)" (4/2013) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Plenty of juicy blackcurrant fruit and background oak are present in this plump, medium to full-bodied, ripe, well-made wine. Not nearly as tannic as I feared, this wine shows a forward plumpness, excellent purity, texture and length. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.

1990 Léoville Poyferré, St-Julien

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Absolutely spectacular, the1990 Leoville Poyferre is much more evolved than either of its two Leoville neighbors. Its opaque plum/garnet color is accompanied by a gorgeous bouquet of smoke, charcoal, creme de cassis, and flowers. Fleshy and opulent, it comes across like a St.-Julien with a Pomerol texture and allure. This beauty has reached full maturity where it should remain for another two decades. (RP)" (6/2009) 92 points Wine Spectator: "A chewy wine, with impressively rich aromas and flavors of ripe plum, tobacco, cedar and earth aromas and flavors and attractive, velvety tann ...Read More »
