2012 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves Top Pick!
2012 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves

Ch. L’Avocat is from the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation. I met Nicola Allison at a small conference of Women from Bordeaux and Napa Valley in Napa earlier. She followed my advice by sending her wines to our hotel in April to be tasted and Clyde and I liked them. I followed up by visiting the estate almost 8 weeks later and was shown the gravely, plateau vineyards by her husband Sean who manages the vines. The vineyards were purchased by the Allisons in 2002; the fruit was pr... Read More »

2012 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque bluish-purple 2012 Smith Haut Lafite offers up notes of licorice, graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, stunningly ripe, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is another sensational effort from the Cathiards that is perfectly balanced, complex, super-rich and pure. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. This is another great turn-around effort that dated from the acquisition of this once moribund estate in 1990, by Daniel and Florence Cathiard. They continue to do an exemplary job with both white a ...Read More »

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, that drinks like a bottle three times the price.

2013 Brown Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

92-93 points James Suckling: "A well-crafted white with a beautiful, clear, linear character and structure. Full body, fresh acidity and a mineral and sliced-apple character. Very fine." (4/2014) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This sophisticated wood-aged wine comes from a fine year for whites in Pessac-Léognan. Subtle wood supports the rich tropical and yellow fruits as well as the crisper acidity. The texture, with its minerality, is still developing, with good potential. Drink from 2017."

(4/2014) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample.* A rich and rounded wine, this shines with pineapple and citrus flavors. It is full-bodied and likely to age well, with a mineral texture." (4/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This has lots of energy, with enticing thyme and tarragon notes flecking the core of lemon zest, white peach, tangerine and straw flavors.

2012 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The iconic 2012 Pape Clement is a candidate for near-perfection as well as one of the wines of the vintage. From proprietor Bernard Magrez, this is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. This extraordinary vineyard (a few miles to the west of Haut Brion and La Mission Haut Brion) has hit all the highlights of this vintage. Interestingly, the quality of the Pomerols and Graves wines in 2012 is closer to what one would consider a great vintage than the general image of 2012. This is truly great wine and not fa ...Read More »

2010 Léognan, Pessac-Léognan

This historic estate dates back to the 17th century, when the property belonged to the monks of St. John. It wasn't until the early 20th century that the owners discovered a promising stretch of gravely-sandy soil and decided to plant 6 hectares of grapes, with advice from their neighboring estate, Domaine de Chevalier. Today their vineyards are planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. With meticulous winemaking, they craft fine wines that stand the test of time. This vintage was the winner of the Gold Medal at the Concours Mondial Bruxelles.

2012 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

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 »

2009 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deeply rich-colored and flavored wine, smooth and showing the great ripeness of the vintage. Acidity and firm tannins offer structure to what is a spicy, fruity wine, dominated by fresh black plum and prune flavors." (2/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very tight, delivering espresso, iron and kirsch notes wound up at the core, covered for now with bay leaf, tar and roasted mesquite flavors. The long finish has nicely buried racy acidity. This is more lean muscle than overt power, and should age nicely. Best from 2013 through 2021." (4/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Oddly aromatic!

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 »

Then bright, tight and concentrated in the mouth, with lovely purity to its kiwi, passion fruit and gooseberry flavors. Offers very good intensity on the musky, bright, long finish. (ID)" (5/2014) 89-91 points Vinous: "Mango, lychee, honey and wild flowers meld together in the 2013 Clos Marsalette Blanc. Stirring of the lees during elevage gives the 2013 much of its body, texture and volume. Hints of pineapple, mint and jasmine inform the graceful finish.

Full-bodied, dry and mineral and lemon zest with fabulous length and beauty. This is definitely one to buy in 2013." (4/2014) 96 points Wine Spectator: "This has a gorgeous feel, with opulent fruit offset by racy herb notes and acidity as lemon sherbet, shortbread and white peach flavors are backed by a salted butter– and tarragon-laced finish. Hints of talc and fennel skitter in the background. Seriously long and still a touch youthful on the finish, this is one for the cellar. S ...Read More »

(6/2006) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A gorgeous effort from this tiny gem, the 2005 Les Carmes is their best wine since 1998 and 2000. Situated in a beautiful park behind Haut-Brion, this estate fashioned a deep ruby-colored 2005 boasting a brilliantly projected set of aromatics (kirsch, smoke, scorched earth, chocolate, leafy tobacco, and creosote).

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "A solid and muscular Domaine de Chevalier with layers of fruit. Very dense, loads of flavor. Full body, bright acidity and a long, long finish. Tangy acidity. It lasts for minutes." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a deliciously fruity wine that has fine poise between richness and ripe peach and red apple flavors. The tangy texture gives the wine extra complexity. It should age well, although it will also be attractive soon." (4/2015) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon matured in around 40% new oak, with a low pH ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

94 points James Suckling: "Extremely complex with cinnamon, dried fruits and dried flowers. Full body, super-integrated tannins and a silky, polished finish. Very impressive. Better in 2018 but very beautiful already." (2/2015) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This structured wine with big, bold red fruits offers ripe acidity, a dense texture and considerable concentration. It also has the hallmark freshness of the vintage that balances the strong aging potential. Drink from 2022." (5/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very floral and elegant with raspberry and blackcurrant fruit mixed with toasty oak/vanillin, followed by a m ...Read More »

2011 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Pape Clement, a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, was aged 18 months in new French oak before being bottled unfiltered. Absolutely profound, with a complex bouquet of mulberries, black cherries, black currants, graphite and subtle smoke and burning ember-like aromas, this is a true super-star of the vintage. It represents a remarkable achievement by the winemaking team of Bernard Magrez. Full-bodied, rich and multidimensional, this wine clearly transcends the entire vintage. It should age e ...Read More »

2014 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. The wine is serious, darkly structured and firm in character, packed with tannins that lend a very dry feel. Fragrant fruitiness and intense acidity shine through for a very fine wine, likely to age over several decades." (4/2015) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "Features a youthfully muscular edge, but remains elegant despite the heft, with a core of plum, red currant and raspberry fruit, guided by supple tannins and backed by subtle tobacco and spice hints. A light bay thread chimes in on the finish, while a juniper detail adds a pleasant underpinning. Displays admirable ...Read More »

1983 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (scuffed labels)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at lunch at La Trompette. I have always had a soft spot for the Haut-Brion 1983 as one of the “friendliest” of the First Growths. Though not a top-tier Haut-Brion, the 1983 has developed a fine earthy, leathery bouquet that is similar to the ’86 but without the same vigour or complexity. The palate is very harmonious with a citrus-tinged entry, its lack of depth and length compensated by poise and tension. Sandalwood, cedar and a touch of truffle and smoke towards the finish. Lovely. A point. (NM)" (11/2010)
