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 »

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)

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)

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.

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* This is a solid effort that showcases both great blackberry fruit and sweet tannins right at the forefront. There is also fine acidity and a layer of wood that gives a dry, firm, age-worthy aftertaste. (RV)" (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. This is more along the lines of the juicy, succulent Talbot, but certainly has aging ...Read More »

2003 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

92 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry, toasted oak, sweet tobacco and espresso. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. I like the texture. Best after 2010. (JS)" (3/2006) 91 points James Suckling: "Spicy and earthy, with lots of ripe fruit. Full bodied, with soft round tannins and a juicy finish. Yummy and decadent. No need to wait, but it will be much better if you pull the cork after 2014." (3/2011) 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 ...Read More »

2000 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

95 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended, Top 100 Wines of 2003* Absolutely wonderful aromas of flowers, currants and citrus. Full-bodied, yet very, very refined, with a center core of fruit that tastes like crushed raspberries and goes on and on. Greatest wine from this estate since 1945." (3/2003) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very strong effort for Gruaud Larose, possibly eclipsed by what they have done in 2009, this is a pure, full-bodied Gruaud Larose with plenty of new saddle leather, cedar wood, black currants, cherries, licorice, and Provencal herbs. Spicy, earthy, full-bodied, and rich, it has h ...Read More »

2014 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a sophisticated wine, already one of the stars of the vintage. It has a concentrated color and serious tannins that are presented in a stylish package of smooth, polished fruitiness and ample acidity. It is certainly for long-term aging. (RV)" (4/2015) 96-97 points James Suckling: "The aromas to this wine are enchanting with blackberries, dried flowers, blueberries, citrus and stones. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and bright acidity. Citrus skin undertones. Very, very long. Structured. This is 13.8 alcohol meaning the Cabernet was incredibly ripe for the vintage. Yet it remains ...Read More »

2014 Gloria, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine promises a great future ahead. It has all the elements in balance—rich tannins, intense black fruits and fragrant acidity—to suggest successful long-term aging." (4/2015) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Gloria is ample, rich and beautifully resonant, with more than enough fruit to fill out its broad-shouldered frame. Red currant, blood orange, smoke, white pepper and iron build to the deeply satisfying finish. The combination of extroverted fruit, tannin and saline-inflected minerality dazzles from the very first taste. What a gorgeous wine this is. (AG) ...Read More »

2015 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Velvet tannins are allied with powerful fruit to create a rich wine with signs of the wood aging that smooth it further. It will be a generous wine that will keep its fine fruitiness for many years. (RV)" (4/2016) 93-94 points James Suckling: "A juicy and savory second wine from Ducru with lots of ripe fruit and spice character. Chocolate and walnut undertones. Full body, velvety tannins and a fresh finish." (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 La Croix de Beaucaillou is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. It has a floral note on the nose: small black cherries, blueberry and ...Read More »

1982 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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 years of life remaining." (6/2009) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium ruby. Refined, floral aromas of black- and redcurrant, minerals and graphite; at once very ripe and subdued. Juicy, precise and penetrating; not hugely fleshy but stylish an ...Read More »

1962 Léoville-Poyferré, St. Julien

This wine likely represented the last remnants of the older vines, as the vineyard was largely replanted in 1962. In Grands Vins: The Finest Châteaux of Bordeaux and Their Wines, Clive Coates writes of the 1962 vintage: "Medium-full colour. Mature. More interest than the 1964 here. Round, ripe, stylish. Fresh. Medium-full. This is mellow, rich and even fat and concentrated. Still has vigour and life. Better than 1964 and 1966. Good grip. Long. Stylish. Mellow. Very good indeed." (1995) Second Growth. Deuxieme Grand Cru Classe in 1855. Indicative blend: ... Read More »

2015 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Leoville Barton is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot picked between 19-22 September and 28 September until 5 October for the Merlot and Cabernet respectively. 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. It is the classic Léoville-Barto ...Read More »
