2012 Trébiac, Graves

You need look no further than Graves for a screamingly good example of ready-to-drink, Merlot-based red. Tobacco, oak and black currant aromas exude from this value-driven Bordeaux, which drinks like a bottle three times the price.

2015 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This shows fabulous depth of fruit and ripe tannins that last for minutes. Full body. Insane finish. Powerful. Greatest ever from here." (3/2016) 95-97 points Vinous: "The 2015 Malartic Lagravière is a total rock star. Deep, powerful and exotic, the 2015 sweeps across the palate with stunning richness and intensity. The creamy voluptuousness of the vintage is on full display. The blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc works beautifully here.

2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This large estate of 131 acres has been run brilliantly by a Belgian family, the Bonnies since their acquisition a number of years ago. The quality of the white and red have soared to exceptional heights, and this is certainly still one of the more realistically priced wines of Pessac-Lèognan and classified crus. The 2012 is a beauty, with a dense ruby/purple color, a fabulously plush, opulent texture and medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, spicy earth and blueberry. Quite rich, yet light on its feet, this is an absolutely textbook Pessac-Lèognan, w ...Read More »

(6/2007) Decanter: "Very ripe, modern style. Pronounced colour. Creamy, cassis cordiale and spice fragrance. Rich, chunky fruit with a firm tannic structure." (4/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Sexy, rather wild aromas of roasted raspberry and game. Supple but firm-edged, with good grip to the raspberry and mineral flavors.

2014 Pessac-Léognan de Haut Bailly, Pessac-Leognan Top Pick!
2014 Pessac-Léognan de Haut Bailly, Pessac-Leognan

Château Haut-Bailly can trace its origins back to the 16th century, but it’s been managed by a member of the Sanders family since the Belgian merchant Daniel Sanders bought the property in 1955 and began to restore the quality and reputation of the wine. Today it’s managed by his granddaughter Veronique Sanders who has put together an outstanding cuvee under the property's third label: the Pessac-Léognan de Haut Bailly. While 2014 was a difficult vintage, this wine is a shining star; especially considering the price and the quality of the vineyards invol... Read More »

(4/2013) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby/plum/purple 2012 exhibits notes of graphite, cedar wood, roasted herbs and sweet red and black currants. This medium-bodied, elegant yet rich wine should drink well for a decade or more. This 22-acre property was recently acquired by the owners of Smith Haut Lafitte, Daniel and Florence Cathiard.

2014 Guirauton, Graves Blanc

2014 Dry white Bordeaux wines are fantastic and with the strong dollar this wine is a no-brainer. We tasted it on our last night in Bordeaux in April 2015. From Bill Blatch's old company Vintex, this wine has good richness and flavor with that great 2014 acidity.

2012 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classic 2012 Haut-Bailly is staggeringly great wine, with a stunning bouquet of lead pencil shavings, blueberries, black raspberries and blackcurrants and perhaps a touch of spring flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with an almost seamless integration of wood, alcohol and tannin. It is rich, concentrated, stunningly supple, pure and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. This wine defines what is meant by intensity of flavor, but it is light on its feet, à la great cuisine. It should be drinkable reasonably young, but age effortl ...Read More »

Ch. L’Avocat is from the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation.

1998 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

94 points Wine Spectator: "I love the nose on this wine; multidimensional, with flowers, sweet blackberry and citrus fruit. Full-bodied, with superclassy tannins that are polished and very refined. Goes for minutes on the palate. Still very reserved and not giving all it has. Give it much more bottle time to realize its wonderful style. One of the sleepers of the vintage. (JS, Web-2009)" 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1998 Haut-Bailly is a wine that exploits what was a fine vintage in Pessac-Léognan, and appears to slowly improve with age. Having not reached adulthood yet, it has a simm ...Read More »

2005 La Garde, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark in color, this wine has sold tannins over rich mint and black plum fruits. The structure is firm, but the whole wine has enough richness to sustain the dry core... (RV)" (6/2010) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the famous negoçiant firm of Dourthe, this is an over-achieving, rich and concentrated version of La Garde. Dense ruby/purple, with loads of spice, earth, smoke, and red and black fruits, it is medium-bodied, concentrated, and long. (RP)" (6/2015) Wine Spectator: "Has a very attractive nose of blackberry, fresh tobacco, cedar and hints of meat. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and plenty ...Read More »

2015 La Mission Haut-Brion Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "The purity in this wine is really mindblowing. So perfect. Licorice. Stone. Blackberry, blueberry. Full body. The power is amazing. But then it finishes etheral and so agile and beautiful. I am lost for words. This will rank with the best ever from here including 1975 and 1929."

2015 Carbonnieux Blanc, Graves (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a beautiful straight line of crispness in this wine. It cuts right through the wood and ripe yellow fruits to leave a wine with great clarity. (RV)" (4/2016) 92-93 points James Suckling: "A fruity and attractive white with pear and green mango aromas and flavors. Full body. Flavorful." (3/2016) 92 points Decanter: "Great definition, this has soft white flowers with a graphite kick on the finish. Floral aromatics add a lift – this is one of the fresher whites of the vintage. (JA)" (4/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Carbonnieux Blanc is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon. It has a tightly wound grapefruit, ...Read More »

2012 Le Pape, Pessac-Léognan

90 points James Suckling: "A refined and polished red with oyster shells, light berries and stones. Full-bodied, tight and reserved. A beauty." (2/2015) Vinous: "The 2012 Chateau Le Pape is the first wine made from start to finish by the team of Haut-Bailly, and it shows in the wine's textural richness and depth. Dark red cherries, smoke, cloves and mint flesh out in a racy, voluptuous wine to drink now and over the next decade-plus. (AG)" (1/2016) Wine Enthusiast: "0 Firmly smoky, strong wood-aged texture gives a solid structure. However, the wine has some juicy acidity that allows a fresher side to show throu ...Read More »

2015 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "Shows amazing depth of fruit with fabulous polish and length. Electric acidity. Full body, very integrated and refined tannins. Phenolic finesse shows here.

2003 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

93 points James Suckling: "The warm vintage of 2003 gives this loads of fruit, like raspberries and strawberry jam. Full-bodied and very fresh with soft, round tannins. A long and yummy wine. Delicious now but please wait to pull the cork until at least 2013." (7/2012) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I remember being worried about how well the 2003 Haut-Bailly would turn out, but it has aged beautifully. Made from a final blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, it currently offers fresh tobacco leaf, red and black currant notes, and hints of burning embers and charcoal. Having put on wei ...Read More »

2015 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Haut Brion, a blend of 50% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, was picked between 8 September and 5 October, and is matured in the same level of new oak (78%) and IPT (75) as the La Mission. It has a heavenly bouquet that like the La Mission bestows instant gratification - a veritable kaleidoscope of aromas so crystalline that you can pick them out one by one: dark plum, blackcurrant, Kalamata olive and graphite. It is tempting to just nose this all day. The palate has an indescribably stunning balance and like the La Mission, ...Read More »
