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. (RV)" (4/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 is a successful effort once again from Château Gloria, a property that has been on a major qualitative roll for decades. Dense ruby/purple in color, it has sweet, juicy, blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, no real evidence of any oak, but a fleshy, open-knit, meaty mouthfeel. Excellent purity, low acidity and ripe tannin all characterize this beautiful wine... (R ...Read More »

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

99 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of crushed berries such as blackberries and blackcurrants, not to mention spices. Wet earth and cedar, too. Complex. Full-bodied, yet agile and complete. A dense center palate. Ultra-round tannins. Everything in the right balance. Wonderful to taste but better to drink in 2022." (2/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2014 is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot that was picked between 25 September and 15 October and matured in 100% new oak as usual.

Incredible length. A wine that you want to drink now." (2/2017) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* 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.

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

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* 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. (RV)" (2/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "Very aromatic with cherries and blackberries. Hints of flowers. Full body, lightly chewy yet ultra-fine tannins and a fresh finish. Tangy and delicious.

(7/2014) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "With vineyards in the west of Saint-Julien, Lagrange produces wines that are polished and elegant. In 2010, that style has been suffused with tannins while also delivering a black currant flavor. The wine is rich and ripe, with just the right amount of tannic structure for the fruit.

Jancis Robinson: "Very dark purple. Quite intense, putty-like aroma. Soft and sweet, for early drinking. Very gently handled. Friendly even without real punch. (JR)" (4/2013) Wine & Spirits: "A bright cabernet, this wine is made from the younger vines at Lagrange. It has some green edges to its tannins, as well as some milk chocolate notes, mellowing the spicy finish of eucalyptus, anise and clove." (10/2016)

2009 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Haut couture becomes a wine! This dense purple wine has the tell-tale notes of flowers and pencil shavings, and its broad aromatics are intense and totally captivating. Powerful, rich, and full, but less tannic than the 2005 and more opulent, this is a dazzling Branaire to drink between 2017-2035.

The 2006 Château Langoa Barton has a lifted nose of small dark cherries, blackberry, incense and marmalade - quite showy for Langoa Barton - but there is joie-de-vivre here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, ripe and demonstrating impressive density plus a firm grip. This really coats the mouth in tannin, although it is still balanced. It just needs another 4-5 years in bottle, the stubborn little lady. Tasted January 2016. (NM)" (5/2016) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Soft and ripe, here is a wine that just e ...Read More »

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.

It is as fresh as it is rich, but it has a structure of dense tannins that balances the wine. This is one of the best wines from Gruaud-Larose for several years.

The full-bodied, textured 2008 Saint-Pierre reveals a skyscraper-like mouthfeel along with tremendous viscosity and unctuosity.

(2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Talbot is soft, silky and wonderfully nuanced on the palate.

Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. It is slightly more restrained than the flamboyant 2009, but equal in quality. This is a juicy, well-proportioned, sensationally concentrated, super-ripe Gloria to drink over the next decades.

Full-bodied, adding velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. (JS)" (5/1999) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It has been a little while since I tasted the Château Léoville-Barton 1989. Now at 25 years of age, it has an open bouquet with vestiges of brambly red fruit, scorched earth and chestnut, touches of fireside hearth developing with time. There is something almost comforting about Anthony Barton's wine, its familiarity putting you at ease. The palate is medium-b ...Read More »

2015 Gloria, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "Pretty Gloria with plenty of tension and energy. Full body yet silky textured and extremely long. Exciting." (3/2016) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* Rock-solid, with loads of bramble and bay leaf underscoring the ripe blackberry and black currant fruit. There's lots of grip, but this is plush, staying focused through the toasty finish. Shows nice refinement. (Web Only—2016)" 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Gloria is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot cropped at 51 hl/ha, matured in 40% new wood. It was picked between 21 September and finishing o ...Read More »

2012 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Full of ripe Cabernet tannins, this is a structured wine that's chunky in character. It elegantly balances fruit and structure, resulting in a wine that's sure to be impressive." (4/2013) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Light, racy and pure, with red currant and cherry pit notes driving a solid hint of rooibos tea on the finish. The finely beaded acidity keeps this going. Not big, but persistent and showing considerable finesse." (4/2013) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(68% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot, 5% petit verdot and 3% cabernet franc): Dark ruby. Very rich aromas of red cherry, cassis, cocoa, violet and miner ...Read More »

1997 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has improved since en primeur. Some green stalkiness on nose but good balance on the palate with firm tannins. Yet very elegant with fine complexity. Feminine with low acidity. Nice cassis-infused finish. On the palate this does not have the under-ripeness that mars many Left Bank wines. This is a commendable 1997. (NM - Wine Journal)" (10/2001) Wine Spectator: "I like the berry and violet character in this wine. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a fresh finish. (JS)" (1/2000)

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!

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 »

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 »

1982 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (high shoulder)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is no question that Leoville Poyferre was not making wines at the level of quality they have since 1990. That said, the 1982 is a great wine, no doubt because of the vintage rather than the winemaking at that time. A brilliant effort, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a sweet, flowery bouquet revealing plenty of creme de cassis, plum, and cherry notes, stunning concentration, a boatload of power, sweet tannins (the sweetest and easiest to taste among the St.-Juliens), and a long finish. Although close to full maturity, it has at least 20-25 ...Read More »

2001 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Editors' Choice** This is a marvelously complete wine, with its impressive ripe fruit, shining through the open structure. It is firm, but not too much. Stone black fruits are just perfectly ripe. There is just a core of dryness to compliment the rest of the wine." (12/2007) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a deep ruby/purple-colored, stylish, sexy concoction of raspberries, graphite, smoke, minerals, and flowers. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium to full-bodied, seamless St.-Julian displaying velvety tannin, medium body, and sweet concetrated fruit in a stylish, w ...Read More »

2013 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This estate has produced an impressive wine for the vintage. It balances acidity, tarry wood flavors and ripe black-berry fruits. Initially it is still showing its structure more than fruit, although this will even out as it matures. (RV)" (3/2016) 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. The tannins are sweet; the wine is medium-bodied; and the texture is impressive in this pure, long effort. (RP)" (8/2014) 91 points James Suckling: "Some curr ...Read More »

2003 Lagrange, St-Julien

92 points James Suckling: "I really love the character of dark berries such as blueberries and currants here. Some rose leaf too. Full body with fine tannins and a savory, fruity, silky-textured finish. Very fine indeed. Drink or hold." (7/2013) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A dark, dry, brooding wine, which has flavors of blackberries and red plum skins, which is not at all dominated by wood. This is a classic wine, with Saint-Julien’s elegance and 2003’s power. (RV)" (5/2006) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry and currant with just a hint of black licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and subtle r ...Read More »
