2017 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is an impressive wine, full of both plush fruit and firm tannins. It is rich, generously structured supporting layers of ripe black fruits. It is concentrated, yet elegant with a full mouthfeel. This is a wine to age. Drink this major wine from 2024. (RV)" (4/2018) 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The deep, inky-colored 2017 Léoville-Barton is a classic, powerhouse wine from this estate that’s going to need bottle age. Loads of black and blue fruits, violets, classy oak, and ample minerality all soar from the glass. It’s medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and backward on the palate ...Read More »

2009 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The greatest wine I’ve ever tasted from this address is the 2009 Léoville Poyferré, which is a step up over both the 2000 and the 2010. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and the balance Cabernet Franc that hit 13.9% alcohol, it offers everything you could ask of a wine and reveals a saturated purple color as well as incredible notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, lead pencil, exotic Spices, and dried flowers. Incredibly full-bodied, super concentrated, deep, and opulent, yet still pure, fresh, and lively, it has sweet tanni ...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 »

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.

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."

Creme de cassis, blackberry jam, graphite, smoke, leather and incense, along with the wine's muscular tannins, convey an impression of brooding intensity.

1998 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gruaud-Larose has fashioned an elegant, less rustic wine than previous vintages. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple. The bouquet offers aromas of plums, black raspberries, and cassis. Stylish, with medium to full body, sweet tannin, and excellent purity as well as overall symmetry, it will drink well between 2004-2016. (RP)" (4/2001) Vinous: "Moderately saturated ruby-red.

The tannins need some time to soften, but the elegant finish says that from 2020 this should really impress." (2/2018) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine seems to be all about structure and tannins. The fruit comes through slowly and has a way to go in its development. But black currants are there, ripe and promising well for the future. Just don’t drink before 2025.

It’s has a long finish but then kicks off at the end. Remains classic in style." (4/2018) 94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Unquestionably one of the successes in the vintage is the 2017 Château Ducru Beaucaillou, which reminds me of the 2014, with perhaps a touch more oomph.

Tannins are well wrapped in the generous structure and fruits.

After its purchase in 1988 by the late Patrick Maroteaux, Chateau Branaire Ducru saw its consistency and quality improve ten fold.

1999 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

92 points Wine & Spirits: "(No tasting note given.)" (4/2002) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Leoville-Barton ’99 has a well-defined nose, more restrained and extrovert than the Langoa, with notes of blackberry, wild hedgerow/woodland, Chinese tea and a dash of white pepper. Very good definition. The palate is medium-bodied, sturdy tannins, a little pepper again on the entry with very good structure on the mid-palate. Quite foursquare and 'correct' with an edgy, off-dry, very Saint Julien' finish. Very fine – very...English! Drink now-2020. (NM)" (7/2009) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A powerful nose, with sweet tobacco and sultana, follows ...Read More »

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

95 points Vinous: "The 2015 Branaire Ducru is a gorgeous, totally sexy wine. Rose petal, lavender, mint, sweet red berry and gently spiced notes give the wine much of its gracious, lilting personality. Precise and nuanced to the core, the 2015 Branaire is all class. It's easy to overlook Brainaire in the context of Saint-Julien, where most of the other important wines are much more powerful. Branaire always speaks with a hushed, discreet voice. Readers who appreciate finesse will find much to admire here. The 2015 is a wine of pure and total sensual pleasure. In 2015, the ...Read More »

1989 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

90 points Wine Spectator: "...Outstanding. Dark ruby-colored center, verging on purple. Superripe aromas of cassis, berry and mint. Full-bodied, very sleek, with fine tannins and a long, long, caressing finish." (5/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Even more exotic than the 1990 – almost decadent in its sweet rich spice and depth, even some toasted notes. Then perhaps less weight and concentration on the palate than the 1990 so seems to dry a little at the end." (5/2009) K&L Notes: 95 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "A deeper colour compared to the ’88 Poyferre with more maturity on the rim. But it has a glorious nose t... Read More »

2017 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made from 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and a splash of Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Clos du Marquis is another beauty from the team at Leoville Las Cases. Offering a deep, concentrated, yet rounded style, as well as terrific ripe fruits, forest floor, and tobacco aromatics, it has a great mid-palate and building tannin, all while staying in the more forward, charming style of the vintage. Give it a few years and enjoy over the following two decades." (4/2018) 93-94 points James Suckling: "Firm and silky wine with very pretty dark-berry and cherry character with currant undertones.

2003 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

98 points Wine Spectator: "Intense blackberry and cherry, with hints of currant. Toasted oak and sweet tobacco too. Roses and other flowers, such as lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of tannins yet incredibly long and seductive. Best after 2012. *#3 on the Top 100 Wines of 2006* (JS)" (3/2006) 96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2003 Léoville-Barton was sensational on release, closed down slightly for 4-5 yeas, and is just now starting to emerge from its adolescence and is on the early side of its drink window. Possessing a saturated purple/ruby color as well as a sensational bouquet of crème de cassis, charcoal, l ...Read More »

2016 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Superbly ripe and juicy, this is a solid, powerful wine that also is packed with black currant fruits. It is richly structured, concentrated and ready for long-term aging. (RV)" (4/2017) 94-97 points Wine Spectator: "A fresh bay leaf note leads off, followed quickly by pure, enticing layers of cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruit that emerge steadily through the long finish. Offers lovely mouthfeel and purity. A very pretty expression of St.-Julien. (JM)" (4/2017) 95-96 points James Suckling: "This is clearly the best wine I have tasted from Branaire-Ducru. Exquisite depth and richness are on offer, yet this is ...Read More »

2016 Beychevelle, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Beychevelle is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc cropped at 45 hectoliters per hectare between 3 October and 18 October. It is matured in 50% new oak. Furthermore, it is the first vintage to be matured in the new chichi winery whose glass exterior overlooks the passing traffic on the D2. It has a very pure, fragrant bouquet with black cherries, cassis, cedar and wet limestone, extremely precise to the point where you might think it was from the Right Bank (logical given the proportion of Merlot ...Read More »

2006 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

95 points James Suckling: "Subtle aromas of currants, blueberries and minerals. Full body with super-integrated tannins and a fine, fine finish. I love the texture to this wine, and it’s just starting to show you the true quality it has. Start drinking. One of the top wines of this vintage. Better in 2016." (7/2013) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Very perfumed and beautiful, showing blackberry and raspberry aromas, with hints of vanilla. Deep and complex. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, powerful finish. Excellent for the vintage. *Top 100 Wines of 2009 & Collectible* (JS)" (3/2009) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château ...Read More »

2016 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. From one of the three chateaus owned by the Barton family, this wine is showing its pedigree. It has elegance as well as structured tannins, ripe blackberry fruits and ample acidity. It is likely to age well over the medium term. (RV)" (4/2017) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "The fresh blueberry, cherry and black currant flavors give this a wide range, while racy graphite and a mouthwatering anise streak drive the finish. The fruit is so enticing that you lose track of how solidly built this is through the finish. (JM)" (4/2017) 94-95 points James Suckling: "This is really structured with great depth and ...Read More »
