2003 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien Top Pick!
2003 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

This, the second wine of Gruaud Larose, provides value and drinkability for those looking for a classic though ripe St-Julien. Named after Baron Jean Auguste Sarget, one of the men who purchased the Gruaud-Larose property in 1812 and whose family managed the estate for the following fifty years. Over the next century, the estate would be divided, with a portion being controlled by the Sarget family. The estate has since been reunited and the château that Sarget built stands as the centerpiece of the property. The estate introduced the second wine in 1979... Read More »

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

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has spice and fresh fruit aromas, which translate on the palate into intense blackberry and wood tastes. 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.

2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Antonio Galloni: "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. The 2014 is likely to require many years to drop some of its baby fat, but it is unquestionably stunning. Veins of saline-inflected minerality add a measure of freshness to the unctuous yet brooding finish. Readers who can find the 2014 should not hesitate ...Read More »

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." (10/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 is a successful effort once again from Château Gloria, a property that ...Read More »

2005 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

92 points Wine & Spirits: "This vintage emphasizes dark chocolate and French roast coffee scents. 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."

2004 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Along with Leoville Las Cases and a few others, this is among the stars of the appellation. Made in a more floral, supple, Margaux-like style, the deep ruby/purple-hued 2004 Leoville Poyferre exhibits sweet, broad flavors, and plenty of tannin lurking beneath the surface. However, the abundant cherry, black currant, licorice, and smoke notes obscure the tannic clout. This rich, powerful, broad beauty should be drinkable in 2-3 years, and last for two decades.

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."

Tasted twice, with consistent notes." (3/2006)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, emphasizing solidity and dry tannins to balance the wood and cranberry flavors of 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.

Bring in the acidity at the end, and this is both impressive and ready for long-term aging." (2/2012)96 points James Suckling: "Very floral, with fresh mushrooms and currants on the nose. Full body, with powerful tannins, yet polished and refined. Lovely length. Vibrant acidity. Well structured. Try after 2018."

2004 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

91 points Wine Spectator: "Very pretty and perfumed, with plum, vanilla and chocolate aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2011." (3/2007)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another sleeper of the vintage from this somewhat under the radar step-child of Anthony Barton’s more famous Leoville Barton, the 2004 Langoa Barton exhibits deep, concentrated, chunky, black currant and cherry fruit intermixed with notions of forest floor and aged beef blood. This impressive, full-bodied, powerful, ageworthy St.-Julien is atypically backward and brooding. Anticipated maturity: 2013-202 ...Read More »

1970 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has been fully mature and delicious for many years, so I was not surprised by how stunning this bottle was. It has always been an outstanding wine for the vintage - complex, rich, savory, and the quintessentially elegant Bordeaux. This beauty continues to reveal the fragrance and finesse that one expects from Lafite-Rothschild but so rarely finds. A fragrant, complex bouquet of cedar, herbs, vanillin, fruitcake, and coffee is followed by a soft, gentle, graciously-constructed wine with sweet layers of fruit. I am not sure how much longer the 19 ...Read More »

1981 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1981 Leoville-Las Cases appears close to full maturity, with an excellent deep ruby color, a spicy, cedary, tobacco and currant-scented nose, and good depth and ripeness. A classic, elegantly wrought wine..." (10/1995) Wine Spectator: "Lovely, round and soft with a good backbone of ripe tannins. Very aromatic, featuring plum, spice and cherry character. Full body and a lovely cedar, fruit finish." (10/1994)

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: "*#6 on the Top 100 Wines of 2007* Intense aromas of black licorice, berries and currants follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Builds on the palate. Reminds me of the 1996 Las Cases. May be better." (3/2005)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It exhibit ...Read More »

1989 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

92 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers lots of tanned leather and spices, with very ripe fruit, from dried strawberry to raisin, turning to jam. Full-bodied, offering a very fresh palate of exotic fruit, currant and raisin as well as silky and polished tannins. So long and beautiful. Why wait? But it has a long life ahead. (Web-2010)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ducru's 1989 was one of the more tannic, backward wines in the blind tasting. It is cleanly made, and well-crafted, with plenty of black-raspberry and cassis fruit nicely touched by minerals and a fragrant, floral component. Medium-bodied, elegant, and we ...Read More »

2003 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

97 points Wine Spectator: "(#28 on the Top 100 Wines of 2006) Intense aromas of blackberry, currant and cherry. Full-bodied, with masses of big, velvety tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. A blockbuster. A classic big, juicy claret. Best after 2012." (3/2006)94 points James Suckling: "Ripe currants, spices, and blueberries on the nose. Full bodied, with big chewy tannins and a juicy finish. This still needs time. Pull the cork after 2014. Find the wine."

1999 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien

94 points Wine Spectator: "This is so fresh still, just a baby. Blackberry, mineral, floral and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, with focused, subtle fruit and a racy, refined and reserved tannin structure. This really needs time. Cuddled up in a ball of tannins.—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Best after 2013. (Web-2010)"92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Captivating nose of roasted currant, cedar and minerals, with a floral lift; quite fresh for the year. Sweet, supple, dense and full, with no dip in the middle. This is impressively chewy and concentrated for a '99. Finis ...Read More »

2010 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien

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." (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."

1985 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fully mature, the dark garnet-colored 1985 exhibits notes of tapenade, earth, sweet berry and black currant fruit, and possibly a hint of black truffles. The wine is lush, medium to full-bodied, and fleshy, with no hard edges. Sweet fruit, plenty of glycerin, and a very seductive style make for a very sumptuous, complex, fully mature Gruaud-Larose. (RP, Bordeaux Book)" (1/2003)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium-deep ruby-red, with only a hint of amber at the rim. Straightforward nose offers hints of redcurrant, orange zest, clove and faded flowers, but this is less complex and deep ...Read More »
