2014 de Landiras Rouge, Graves

2004 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2004 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A top-notch effort from proprietress Helene Garcin, Haut-Bergey’s 2004 exhibits an evolved, cedary, smoky, tobacco, and sweet cherry-scented bouquet offered in a medium-bodied, supple-textured style. (RP)" (6/2007) 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. There's good fruit here but limited fat and a restrained sweetness. (ST)" (6/2007) Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry and light tobacco. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. (JS, Web-2007)"

2014 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2014 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

91-93 points Vinous: "A dark, explosive wine, the 2014 Brown hits the palate with tons of intensity and breadth. Black fruit, smoke, mint, leather and tobacco wrap around the huge, structured finish in a wine that brings together intense fruit with an equally imposing sense of structure. Consulting winemaker Frédéric Massie continues to do impressive work at Brown, a historic estate in Pessac-Léognan that seems to be on the rise. There is a lot to like and look forward to. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. (AG)" (4/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very solid, with a cor ...Read More »

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

96 points Vinous: "I was deeply impressed with these wines from Domaine de Chevalier. The red has a slight upper hand in 2014, but both wines are distinctive and full of character. Olivier Bernard owns one of the crown jewels of Bordeaux, as these wines clearly make evident. The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier is a total knockout. Precise, brilliant and finely sculpted, the 2014 possesses superb intensity. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red berries, along with finessed but persistent tannins, give the wine its regal personality. The 2014 needs a number of years to shed some ...Read More »

2012 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves (Previously $16) Top Pick!
2012 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves (Previously $16)

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 »

2014 La Reserve de Malartic, Pessac-Léognan

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tight tannins mask the ripe fruit in a wine that is set for long-term aging, so there is a dry core that dominates at the moment. But not for long: the bold black fruits are insistent and are going to be delicious. This is a structured wine that will be ready in 2026.

The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin, gritty in the mouth with earthy, saline notes on the finish. It's a "grumpy" Graves...but I kind of like it. (NM)" (4/2016)

2012 Gazin Rocquencourt, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Vinous: "Black cherry, plum, chalk, smoke, leather and gravel all flesh out in the 2012 Gazin Rocquencourt. Dark and baritonal in its expression, the 2012 is deep, plush and quite expressive. Substantial tannins appear on the finish, suggesting the 2012 needs at least a few years in bottle. Best of all, the 2012 delivers superb quality and personality. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot.

2009 Malartic-Lagravière Pessac-Léognan

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Malartic-Lagraviere ‘09 is evolving into one of the finest wines that the estate has ever produced. It has a more introverted bouquet with dark berry fruit, undergrowth and iodine. With rigorous swirling it still refuses to unfurl. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. It builds nicely towards a lovely black olive and spice tinged finish that exudes finesse. Superb.

It needs another year or two to soften but it’s already gorgeous to drink. Decant an hour or two before." (10/2012) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* With its dryness, this seems at first to be all tannin. There is, though, a black currant fruit flavor that shows through after the wine has been in the mouth for a while, and the aftertaste has fine acidity. This should develop well.

It’s these that drive everything along right through to the assertive, slightly earthy finish; impressive long-term stuff!" (2/2017) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a powerful wine, made to age for a long time, from this estate which is performing in top gear. Complex tannins and dark fruits both make their presence felt. It has weight, ripeness and a dense structure. A great success, it is unlikely to be ready to drink before 2027 ...Read More »

2016 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "A powerfully dense, impressive wine from a top-performing estate with a solid, foursquare structure. The crisp acidity so much in evidence in this vintage shines through all this richness. Keep the wine for at least 12 years. (RV)" (4/2017) 95-96 points James Suckling: "This is so linear and refined with compacted fruit and superb tannin texture. The length and beauty to this grab you immediately and make you pay attention. Wait and see."

2014 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Vinous: "A big, powerful wine, the 2014 Haut-Bergey hits the palate with an exotic mélange of smoke, cured meats, tobacco, black fruit, incense and dark spices. Deep, rich and quite concentrated, the 2014 is bursting at the seams with personality. Don't expect the 2014 to drink well anytime soon. Still, for those who can wait, the 2014 has plenty to offer. The substantial yet silky finish alone is hugely appealing. The blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. (AG)" (4/2015) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Haut-Bergey 2014 is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot (tho ...Read More »

2014 Larrivet Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan Rouge

92 points James Suckling: "The cranberry and cherry notes on the nose are pretty, and this wine also has a firm core of ripe tannins and good concentration with some real sophistication on the finish." (2/2017) 91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Larrivet Haut-Brion is superb. Ripe red cherry, plum, spice, rose petal and savory herbs are neatly fused together. Succulent, fleshy and inviting, the 2014 is showing exceptionally well today. This supple, racy Pessac-Leognan should drink well right out of the gate. (AG)" (2/2017) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is the second wine of Larrivet Haut-Brion. It is rich with tannins and juicy with b ...Read More »

2016 de Chantegrive Rouge, Graves (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "A dense and rich white with stone and cement character. Full and flavorful. Long finish." (4/2017) Vinous: "Dark fruit, torrefaction, smoke and chocolate give the 2016 de Chantegrive its distinctive personality. This is an especially bold, sumptuous wine built on forward fruit and lushness. Tasted two times. (AG)" (4/2017)

2009 Branon, Pessac-Léognan

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This magnificent, dense plum/purple-colored Pessac-Leognan reveals notes of scorched earth, burning embers, blackberries and truffles. Composed of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a vineyard gorgeously situated between Malartic Lagraviere and Haut-Bailly, it possesses full-bodied power, a stunningly intense, voluptuous, layered mouthfeel and abundant levels of fruit, glycerin and tannin. The 2009 ranks alongside the magnificent 2000, which is aging at a glacial pace. Unfortunately, proprietress Helene Garcin only produces around 500 cases of this somewhat ...Read More »

2016 Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "Wow. This is incredibly rich and exotic. Full-bodied, so deep and long. It lasts for minutes. Perfectly polished tannins evidence how texturally focused and supple this is. Decadent and enticing. From organically grown grapes. Super quality of Cabernet is on show here. We will see if 2016 is better than 2015." (4/2017) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot that was picked between 29 September and 19 October at 35 hectoliters per hectare.
