2009 Lalande-Borie, St-Julien Top Pick!
2009 Lalande-Borie, St-Julien

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich and smooth, with tannins that are ripe, some spice and also intense acidity. The blackcurrant character is dominant. (RV)" (8/2010) 91 points James Suckling: "Round and silky, with a lovely richness of chocolate, currant and plum character. Full and flavorful. Delicious now, but much better in 2015."

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 »

2014 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

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. Racy." (2/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Leoville Barton is one of the must-buys of the vintage.

If you can't afford Las Cases, try some of this. Some might call this a second wine, but it comes from a plot of vineyards not deemed worthy of Léoville Las Cases. So it's like its own estate. Best after 2009. *Ranked #14, Top 100 Wines of 2003* (JS)" (3/2003) 91 points James Suckling: "This is very open with plum and sweet tobacco notes, and a round and juicy body.

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.

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.

2005 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Langoa Barton 2005 offers plenty of concentration on the nose: blackberries, blueberry, a touch of cedar and tobacco emerging from the glass, opening and gaining intensity all the time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is beautifully balanced in the mouth, perhaps just a little conservative but with great precision and length. It has the freshness and vitality to be approachable now, though I would prefer to leave this for another 4 or 5 years.

2016 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

98-100 points Decanter: "Cabernet Sauvignon makes up 75% of the main blend, with 14% of 80 year old Merlot and 11% of Cabernet Franc, and aged in 90% new oak. It is hard to think of a vintage when this is not a great wine, but in 2016 it is exceptional, comparable to the majestic 1996. It has all the intensity, richness and depth, but it lets the light in. The yield is fairly high at 40hl/ha, with 3.66pH balancing a tannin index of 82IPT. This is the highest ever at this property and yet the wine is elegant, gorgeous and juicy, with an endless array of black fruits and graphite. ...Read More »

2005 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

95 points Wine & Spirits: "This wine's heady rush of flavor gave one taster goosebumps. She called it sexy. 'Formidable.' Other technical descriptions included 'the shazam,' 'has zazz,' and 'unprintable. That's some serious s#¡†.' At the en primeur tastings, this ap­peared to be chunky and superripe. Now it's massive, with dark extract and exotic spice, a sophisticated wine that ends on sweetness, bitter chocolate and dark berry fruit. With all the flash, it will give a lot of pleasure as a young wine, but it has the plump Poyferré terroir drive to sustain that pleasure for years ...Read More »

Matured in 60% new oak, it has a more compelling and intense bouquet than the 2015 Langoa Barton at this early stage, whereas in other years I have found the siblings closer together. It delivers some lovely blackberry, sage and cigar box scents. The palate is very refined with edgy tannin, beautifully balanced with seamlessly integrated oak.

2012 Les Fiefs de Lagrange, St. Julien (Previously $30)

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)

(2/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Réserve de Léoville-Barton has a fruit-driven, open, pure raspberry and crushed strawberry scented bouquet that is simple but designed to seduce. "Punter friendly," as they say.

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.

2009 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

Here, the 2009 has a lifted, perfumed, Burgundy-inspired bouquet that is nicely defined but showing a little more unresolved oak than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit on the entry: strawberry, cedar and blackcurrant. This is strict and very linear, conservative but compelling. The class is here from start to finish and presently stands shoulder to shoulder with its “big bro’”. (NM)" (7/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deceptively approachable wine.

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.

(2/2017) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Produced by the winemaking team of Léoville las Cases, this wine comes from a separate part of the estate. The wine, with its dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon, is dense with tannins as well as dark fruit. It is firm, powerful and a very fine wine for long-term aging. Drink from 2024. ( ...Read More »

2009 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Ranked #3 on Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2012* A major success of the vintage. The wine exhibits extreme richness of the fruit, with all its sweet blackberry flavors. It also has underlying firm structure, density and solid tannins. Bring in the acidity at the end, and this is both impressive and ready for long-term aging. (RV)" (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." (2/2012) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This is p ...Read More »

2007 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a delicious wine already, not powerful, but charming and elegant. The acidity and fruit are easy and bright, the tannins light but properly in balance. That suggests this is not for aging. it's already a pleasure to drink now." (4/2010) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An outstanding effort, Branaire's 2007 exhibits floral-infused black raspberry, boysenberry, and mulberry notes as well as a decidedly blue fruit character. Attractive, elegant, and medium to full-bodied with beautiful fruit, density, and texture, it should drink well for 10-12 years."

2009 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou will eclipse the brilliant wines produced in 2005, 2003 and 2000. It will be interesting to see how the 2009 fares against the 2010 after twenty years of aging, but my money is on the 2009. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, this inky purple, unctuous wine possesses classic aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, blueberries, violets, licorice and Christmas fruitcake. Full-bodied and intense with Ducru’s inimitable elegance and purity, it should firm up in the bottle after 7-10 ye ...Read More »

2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

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) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Ducru Beaucaillou showed extremely well when I tasted it with Bruno Borie during en primeur. Now in bottle, it delivers on that promise with beautifully defined blackberry and raspberry fruit infused with cedar and pencil box aromas. Quintessential ...Read More »

2009 Lagrange, St-Julien

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. (RV)" (2/2012) 93 points James Suckling: "I drank this sexy Pomerol a couple of nights ago in Seoul at the wine bar/restaurant Casa del Vino, which is one of the best in the city, with some friends following a few days in the capital at a cultural exchange conference called Cultural Communication Forum. It was a wonderful wine to celebrate the end of the event with my fiancée and friends and it showed how ...Read More »

2014 Lagrange, St-Julien

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm and still dry with the solid tannins, the wine's ripe fruitiness is developing well. The combination gives great potential. Black currant and berry fruits are both there with crisp juicy acidity. The aftertaste is a reminder that this wine has a long way to go. (RV)" (2/2017) 93 points James Suckling: "I like the spice, chili and stone character with the ripe yet cool fruit. Medium to full body, chewy and polished tannins and a long and flavorful finish."

2006 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. 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 »

2004 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Editors' Choice*** As so often, Léoville-Barton stands out for its style and elegance. With fresh fruit and acidity allied to generous tannins, it sums up the character of the 2004 vintage. Very classic in Bordeaux terms: not hugely powerful, but delicious. (RV)" (6/2007) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the French Embassy in London. At six years of age, the Leoville Barton is developing quite a refined bouquet with brambly red-berried fruits laced with cedar and a touch of sage. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, ripe red fruits, a generous dose of cedar and firm, dry ...Read More »

2000 Les Fiefs de Lagrange, St-Julien

90 points John Gilman: "The 2000 vintage of Les Fiefs de Lagrange is noteworthy for having had all of the château’s Petit Verdot included in the second label, and the wine should prove to be quite ageworthy as a result. The bouquet is initially a bit marked by its toasty oak, which may mean that this vintage of Les Fiefs saw a bit more than the standard ten percent, but there is no issue with the integration of the wood on the palate. The bouquet is deep and powerful, as it offers up notes of black cherries, cassis, tobacco leaf, dark chocolate, soil tones and the toasty oak. O ...Read More »

2010 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

It lasts for minutes. Best in 2018 or later." (2/2013) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A great wine, packed with black currant fruits, sweet tannins and beautiful acidity. Made by the team at Léoville las Cases, this wine reveals an elegant, restrained structure, ripe and delicious fruit and a darker, tighter texture for aging.
