2012 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien Top Pick!
2012 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Firmly tannic in character, this wine is dry and extracted. There's potential for this powerful, impressive wine to bear the wine's very dry character with the weight of its fruit." (4/2013) 92 points Decanter: "Dense black-red, firm, quite spicy Cabernet Sauvignon, both ripeness and firmness is there, elegance over power and a good future." (10/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics, Léoville-Barton’s 2012 is a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine. This full-bodied wine needs 5-8 years of cellaring and shou ...Read More »

2001 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

92 points Wine Spectator: "Very perfumed with blackberries, currants and vanilla. Full bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. This is tight and racy. Very fine. Best after 2008." (3/2004) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Clos du Marquis tastes like a classified growth Bordeaux. Deep ruby/purple-colored, it is more open-knit and forward than its bigger sibling, exhibiting lovely cassis fruit intermixed with underbrush, earth, and subtle background oak. Enjoy this approachable 2001 over the next 10-14 years." (6/2004) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good ruby-red color. Currant, tobacco, minerals, graphite and sexy oak on the nose.

2010 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fruity and juicy, this showcases the accessibility of this estate, while also highlighting some of the tannic structure of its big brother, Léoville-Barton. There is a classic black-currant note that's balanced by the firm tannins of the vintage. (RV)" (2/2013) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Tightly focused, with a beam of cassis and blackberry fruit framed by integrated espresso and charcoal notes. The ample structure drives the polished finish, allowing extra notes of plum sauce, pastis and blueberry coulis to stride through. Shows serious grip at the very end. Best from 2016 through ...Read More »

2009 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deceptively approachable wine. Its gorgeous fruits are right up front, their ripeness powered by a generous, complex texture. There is concentration, but it is surrounded by so much richness. It can almost be drunk now, but should age well. (RV)" (3/2012) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very dense and still rather reserved, with dark blueberry, blackberry and fig notes rolled together, framed by freshly brewed espresso and Black Forest cake notes. Long and tarry through the finish, with a melted licorice snap note hanging on at the very end. (JM)" (3/2012) 92 points James Suckling: "Blueberry and currant aromas fo ...Read More »

1995 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

93 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderfully perfumed, with violets, flowers, fruit and cedar. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and a powerful structure. Powerful and reserved. (Web Only—2007)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I have indicated numerous times in this journal, the second wine of Las Cases, Clos du Marquis, is one of the finest second wines being made in Bordeaux. Over recent years, it has become a wine of classified growth quality. The 1996 may turn out to be even better than the outstanding 1995. Both are exceptional wines, with the 1996 slightly thicker and more viscous, with more noticeable new oak, ...Read More »

2012 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

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. Rich and complex, it needs to age. Drink from 2025." (5/2015) 94 points Vinous: "A big wine for the year, the 2012 Ducru-Beaucaillou possesses striking depth and intensity from start to finish.

It is firmly structured, with a dry core and medium-plus concentration. It promises a long life ahead." (3/2015) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Mouthfilling from the start, with lovely plum sauce, steeped fig and blackberry coulis flavors, lined with warm ganache notes and carried by ample but polished tannins. Features a tarry edge at the end, but maintains a rather polished feel overall. A lovely wine, once again.

1986 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

May last forever. --Ducru-Beaucaillou vertical." (10/1992) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "At 16 years of age, this wine continues to taste more like a 5 to 7-year-old Bordeaux. The color is a handsome dark ruby with just a bit of pink at the edge. The wine exhibits sweet red and black currant fruit intermixed with wet stones, spice, and flowers. Medium-bodied and still moderately tannic, but very concentrated, this firmly structured, slightly auste ...Read More »

1997 Gloria, St-Julien

According to Robert Parker: "Recent vintages of Gloria have pushed the level of quality even higher. There is no doubting this cunningly made wine that offers mouthfilling levels of black cherry, herb-tinged, cassis fruit. There is plenty of glycerin in this velvety-textured, medium-bodied Gloria. Pure, plump, and succulent, it is all a young, exuberant claret should be... A sleeper of the vintage." (04/98)

2010 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien

Spicy, subtle fruit and a long and marvelous finish. Currant bush undertones. A whole and beautiful wine." (2/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "No longer a second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou, but a wine from its own separate vineyard, Croix de Beaucaillou is impressive. Firm while also rich, it is firmly tannic, superripe and packed with great dark plum and berry fruits. Fruit and structure well balanced together."

2012 Gloria, St-Julien

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Solid and concentrated, this wine certainly shows great dryness as well as fruit. It has power and density, and a texture that balances new wood as well as the fruitiness." (4/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Deep crimson. Leafy and dark-fruited at the same time. Inviting. Deliciously and distinctively rich and full in the mouth but still shapely and refined. Plenty of tannin but all hidden in the fruit. Lovely harmony and so much more generous than most 2012s tasted at the UGC's London showing."

With its bold structure, this is a wine for aging." (4/2014) 91-92 points James Suckling: "A juicy young wine with berry, cherry and currant character. Medium to full body, with well-integrated tannins and a juicy finish. Pure and delicious. Very well done." (4/2014) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dense ruby/purple-colored 2013 Branaire Ducru reveals a floral, blueberry and raspberry-scented nose that leans toward the bluer/redder fruit spectrum indicative of a cooler year.

(7/2014) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe wine, with soft tannins allied to great density. Weight and lovely, juicy, final fruit flavors meld together easily. This is solid, dense, impressive and for long-term aging." (2/2012) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated medium ruby. Sexy aromas of cassis, licorice, menthol and cedar.

(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 »

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.

1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1982 is still 5-8 years away from full maturity, but it exhibits a dense ruby/plum/garnet color to the rim as well as a sweet perfume of forest floor, spice box, cedar, and copious quantities of black fruits. Medium to full-bodied and beautifully pure with sweet tannins, this wine has aged more slowly than I initially expected. It is the finest Ducru Beaucaillou produced after the 1961 and before the 2003. (RP)" (6/2009) 93 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that I had forgotten about.

It just avoids the bitterness of extraction because of the superrich berry and plum fruits. The tough background yields to vibrant acidity on the finish." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "The purity of fruit to this young wine is impressive with currants, raspberries and black cherries. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long, long finish.

(4/2013) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A soft, somewhat fleshy and opulent style of St.-Julien, this 2012 has a deep ruby/purple color, good minerality, moderate tannin, and a full but more precocious and accessible style than its neighbors such as Léoville Poyferré and Beychevelle.

Its luscious cherry flavors give a soft, round impression in the middle, then it lightens up a little, needing time for the flavors to extend. The fineness of Langoa is there, and should be more apparent in ten years' time."

Subtle but substantial, layered, and textured, with medium body as well as sexy, up-front flavors, low acidity, and ripe tannin, this beauty is among the ...Read More »

1996 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Previously $430.00)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A profound Leoville Las Cases, it is one of the great modern day wines of Bordeaux. This wine's hallmark remains a sur-maturite (over-ripeness) of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Yet the wine has retained its intrinsic classicism, symmetry, and profound potential for complexity and elegance. The black/purple color is followed by a spectacular nose of cassis, cherry liqueur, pain grille, and minerals. It is powerful and rich on the attack, with beautifully integrated tannin, massive concentration, yet no hint of heaviness or disjointedness. As this wine sit ...Read More »

2014 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Powerful tannins are the hallmark of this concentrated wine. With a big structure, it is pushing the envelope, yet the Saint-Julien elegance manifests itself in the balanced fruit and deliciously fresh acidity." (4/2015) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Sappy kirsch and blackberry coulis notes form the core, with ample tar, ganache and bramble flavors filling in the finish. Displays lots of chewy grip but has the flesh to match. Rock-solid." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "A beautiful young wine with raspberries and plums. Full, round and juicy. So much berry character. Round tannins and bright aci ...Read More »

1981 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Consistently one of the most successful wines of this vintage, this mid-weight Ducru-Beaucaillou is showing some pink and amber at the edge. The wine has an attractive nose of wet stones, sweet currant and mulberry fruit intermixed with a hint of spice and earth. The wine has medium body, light tannin, and an easygoing finish." (1/2003) Wine Spectator: "A wonderful balance of rich fruit and silky tannins, with plum, vanilla and light tar character. Full-bodied and tannic yet so well integrated; excellent harmony." (10/1994)

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 »

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." (4/2013) 90 points James Suckling: "A little fluid but some attractive blueberry and currant character. Medium body, fine tannins. Light finish." (4/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Dark crimson. Edgy, leafy nose with thick appeal though it lacks a bit of really spontaneous freshness. Solid." (4/2013) Wine Spectator: "Barrel Tasting: Soft at the core, featuring gentle plum and cherry pie notes, with dusty tannin ...Read More »

2010 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien (1.5L)

94 points James Suckling: "I love the aromas of minerals, flowers, blackberries and blueberries. Full body with a fabulous texture of polished and integrated tannins. It goes on for minutes. Spicy, subtle fruit and a long and marvelous finish. Currant bush undertones. A whole and beautiful wine. The second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou. Drink or hold." (2/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "No longer a second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou, but a wine from its own separate vineyard, Croix de Beaucaillou is impressive. Firm while also rich, it is firmly tannic, superripe and packed with great dark plum and berry fruits. F ...Read More »

2002 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better from bottle than from cask, and one of the finest wines of the vintage, this dense purple-colored 2002 reveals wonderfully sweet notes of charcoal, fresh mushrooms, smoke, earth, leather, cassis, and cedar. Full-bodied, highly extracted, broodingly backward, dense, and deep, this impressively endowed offering is built for the long term. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028. (RP)" (4/2005) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Complex nose melds black cherry, cedar, graphite, menthol and chocolate. Cool, penetrating flavors of blue and black fruits, minerals, licorice ...Read More »

1990 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Previously 250)

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." (6/2009) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby color with a red edge. Subtle aromas of black cherry and plum, w ...Read More »
