2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
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 »

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.

2014 Trébiac, Graves

You need look no further than Graves for a screamingly good example of ready-to-drink Bordeaux. The Château Trébiac property sits on a gravel plateau at Portets. Over the past several years, the winery and vinification have been upgraded and the vines (averaging almost 30 years old) have seen some new care regimen and rehabilitation as well. Informed by 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, the tones of cassis and tobacco exude from this value-driven Bordeaux, which drinks like a bottle at twice the price.

2015 D'Alix, Pessac-Leognan

Winemaker Muriel Belloc and her husband Jean Noel vinified their first vintage in 2012 in their brand-new wine cellar. Her notes: "The wines of Pessac-Léognan and particularly those of Château D’Alix, located on the deep gravely soil of the Graves region of France, are adorned with a ruby red robe and expressive nose, whose slightly woody notes mingle with red fruit aromas. On the palate, the supple attack is prolonged by fruity notes: cherry, stone fruits, and finishes on a balancing sweetness." The blend is typically 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Mer...

2012 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Wine Spectator: "Nicely packed, with energetic flavors of blackberry cobbler, blueberry paste and boysenberry coulis, carried by a brambly structure and pushed by anise and ganache accents on the finish. Shows solid grip and should do well with cellaring. This has added some weight since the barrel tasting. Best from 2017 through 2022. (JM)" (3/2015) 90 points Vinous: "A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2012 Brown hits the palate with serious intensity and slightly rough contours that are going to need time to settle down.

Goes on for minutes. Truly great. What a barrel sample."

But not for long: the bold black fruits are insistent and are going to be delicious. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (4/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "So perfumed with a freshness and beauty that is amazing.

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot that was harvested between October 1st and October 15th, this deep ruby/purple-colored effort has soaring aromatics of caramelized black cherries, cassis, lead pencil shavings, and forest floor. Deep, full-bodied, intense and beautifully pure, with fine tannin and moderate acidity, it’s a gorgeous Pessac-Leognan that needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will evolve for three decades. ...Read More »

2002 Le Cleméntin du Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan

The second label of Graves Grand Cru Classé Château Pape Clément, one of the oldest estates in Bordeaux that dates back to the 1200s. This is a great buy from an outstanding vintage. Lots of earth and minerals. Remember that the wines from 2002 are much better on the right bank and in Pessac than in the northern Medoc. Sweet on the palate after one hour open.

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.

2014 Pape Clément Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

97 points James Suckling: "Complex aromas of sliced apples, honey, pineapple and honeysuckle with hints of stones. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a beautiful finish. Intense and powerful. A combination of density and power. What a great finish. Drink in 2022 but fantastic to taste now." (2/2017) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Pape-Clement Blanc 2014 is a blend of 50% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sauvignon Gris picked between 8 and 23 September.

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.

2014 de Chantegrive Rouge, Graves

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has intense acidity, given some richness by a tannic core as well as ripe black plum flavors. It's aromatic and fruity, although the acid is almost shocking at the end. (RV)" (4/2015) Vinous: "The 2014 de Chantegrive is a midweight wine with good aromatic lift and plenty of floral/savory overtones. Sweet red cherry, tobacco and spice add further character. The 2014 is perhaps a touch light, but it is also quite attractive. This savory, feminine Graves appears to be best suited for near-term drinking. (AG)" (2/2017)
