2014 Tour St-Christophe, St-Émilion Top Pick!
2014 Tour St-Christophe, St-Émilion

94 points James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas of blackberries, flowers, chalk and blueberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Intense and structured." (2/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Tour Saint-Christophe comes from Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, the lieu-dit Cassevert, where proprietor Peter Kwok has built some quite startling terraces on the slope to improve the terroir (apparently recruited from Spain as only they possess the technical know-how). My, what a Saint Emilion this is. It has a very well-defined bouquet with crisp, pure mineral-rich red and black fru ...Read More »

2016 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This is superb: a triumph for the vintage considering how complicated it was in St.-Emilion. Elegance with power. Full-bodied, intense and forthright. Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015."

2016 Haut-Brisson, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "Soft and velvety wine with blackberry, blueberry and raspberry character. Full body, a dense center palate and a long and pure finish. Another winner." (3/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Haut Brisson is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc was cropped at 42 hectoliters per hectare picked from 5-15 October, matured in 35% new oak.

Long finish with licorice and soft mineral notes. Wonderful wine that will drink well from 2016." (2/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This is nicely cloaked with charcoal and roasted apple wood, while the core of steeped fig, blackberry and black cherry paste notes sits in reserve.

(4/2017) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a perfumed wine, likely thanks to a dollop (7%) of Cabernet Franc. It has ripe fruit characters, pleasant richness and a firm structure.

2010 Laroque, St-Emilion

Chewy with slightly firm tannins and lots of new wood that needs time to integrate. Try in 2017." (2/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A bit backward still, with more alder and mesquite leading the way, while the lightly mulled plum, blackberry and black currant fruit sits in the wings. Dark ganache and a chewy, tarry finish keep this shrouded for now, but there's good stuffing for the cellar. Yet likely to stay on the slightly rustic side of th ...Read More »

2014 Petit Figeac, St-Emilion

92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Petit-Figeac is laced with the essence of sweet dark cherry, plum, tobacco, mint, licorice and leather. Pliant, supple and expressive, it is a highly appealing second wine. This is just as impressive in bottle as it was from barrel. (AG)" (2/2017) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The third vintage of this second wine from Château Figeac is gently integrated with fresh fruit and acidity.

Needs two or three years to soften slightly but already impressive." (1/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barde-Haut is dark, fleshy and voluptuous, with notable depth and resonance from the Merlot. Mocha, bittersweet chocolate, plums and spices all add nuance, but above all else, the 2012 is a wine of spherical texture and intensity. Give it a few years to fully unwind.

2012 Villemaurine, St-Emilion

93 points Vinous: "One of the under the radar gems of the vintage, the 2012 Villemaurine is striking from the outset. A dark, sumptuous Saint-Emilion, the 2012 possesses gorgeous richness to match its sensual personality. Black cherry, smoke, plum and spices are some of the many notes that emerge from this beautifully layered, inviting wine. The 2012 is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Hubert de Bouard is the consulting winemaker.

2009 Larmande, St-Emilion

The superb quality of the Cabernet Franc comes through here. Better in 2015." (2/2012) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Concentrated, dark wine that edges towards austere. Beneath this surface, the wine shows some generous fruit. Give it a few years and the more approachable nature will begin to show through.

Full to medium body, savory and chewy tannins, yet this always remains polished with a long and pretty finish. Drink in 2020, but hard not to drink now." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Barde-Haut has turned out beautifully. Dark cherry, mocha, spice, leather and tobacco flesh out in the glass.

A much more refined style for Haut-Brission. First year without Reserve bottling. Best ever. From organically grown grapes." (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Until the 2015 vintage, all the fruit from Château Haut Brisson came from down towards Château Teyssier; however, in 2013 Peter Kwok bought a parcel located on the limestone plateau in Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse, which obviously will impact and hopefully improve the quality.

Drink in 2019."

The palate is medium-bodied with good backbone, a little edginess coming through with aeration, although it remains stubborn and linear on the finish.

This year I was hosted by François' daughter Nina Mitjavile, who has been working alongside her father for several years. It has a wonderful bouquet, very pure and fresh.

Give it two or three years to open." (2/2017) 92 points Vinous: "The 2014 La Dominique is a big, powerful wine that needs time for the tannins to soften. Blue and purplish-hued stone fruits, licorice, menthol, spice and a good bit of French oak shape a powerful, deeply expressive Saint-Émilion that hits all the right notes.

(3/2003) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The impressive 2000 is undoubtedly a sleeper of the vintage. It offers an opaque purple color along with copious quantities of sweet creme de cassis notes intermixed with coffee, smoke, earth, and mocha. Full-bodied and intense, with low acidity, a layered texture, sweet tannin, and a 35-second finish, it will ...Read More »

2013 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Full-bodied and atypically rich and concentrated for a 2013, it boasts beautiful blueberry and creme de cassis fruit as well as underlying chalky minerality, and good richness and concentration. It is a noteworthy homage to Christine Vallete’s brilliant efforts at Troplong Mondot, which resulted in the elevation of this estate in the 2012 St.-Emilion classification. It can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. It has been less than six months since the irrepressible and brilliant Christine Vallette passed away after a long and courageous battle with ca ...Read More »

2015 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Vinous: "A spectacularly rich, hedonistic wine, the 2015 Beau-Séjour-Bécot exudes richness and intensity, with silky, polished tannins that wrap around a huge core of fruit. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and violet notes flesh out as this voluptuous, modern St.-Émilion shows off its distinctive personality. The 2015 is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon partially fermented in barrel. All the elements are simply in the right place. Tasted two times. (AG)" (4/2016) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Beau-Sejour-Becot is a blend of 80% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and ...Read More »

2000 La Clusière, St-Emilion

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Now extinct, as this tiny 2.6-acre micro-vineyard was absorbed into Chateau Pavie, the 2000 La Clusiere (100% Merlot) was bestowed a perfect score seven years ago, and I see no reason to change that as it remains a monumental effort. Aromas of creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur, charcoal, licorice, and graphite are followed by a stunningly rich, full-bodied, elegant, pure, gentle giant of a wine. Approaching full maturity, it should age effortlessly for another 30+ years. Kudos to proprietor Gerard Perse. (RP)" (6/2010) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. Superripe but live ...Read More »

1990 Magdelaine, St-Emilion

95 points John Gilman: "The 1990 Magdelaine is a flat out brilliant bottle of wine that delivers much the same aromatic and flavor fireworks of the 1990 Figeac, albeit in a potentially more transparent and ethereal package than the Figeac. The celestial bouquet soars from the glass in a mélange of cherries, toasted nuts, menthol, tobacco leaf, beautiful herb tones, chalky soil nuances and just a whisper of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, elegant and refined, with great intensity of flavor, laser-like focus, ripe and supple tannins, and endless length on the ...Read More »

1989 Soutard, St-Emilion (1.5L)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my all-time favorite vintages from Soutard, this wine, which is quite dense, concentrated, muscular, and full-bodied, still has a dark garnet/plum/purple color and a nose of damp earth, liquid minerals, plum, and cassis intermixed with some licorice and cedar. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, and aging at a glacial pace. Quite pure, intense, but still not ready to drink, this is a wine for serious connoisseurs. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020. (RP)" (12/2002)

2015 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

98-99 points James Suckling: "Hard to believe this. It has a minerality and intensity like a great white wine with so much chalky character that it gives an oyster shell flavor. Full and racy. Shaking my head in intrigue. Wonderfully silky tannins." (4/2016) 94-97 points Vinous: "One of the stars of the vintage, the 2015 Larcis Ducasse is intensely aromatic, silky and totally sensual from the very first taste. The purity of the fruit here is striking. Even so, it will be many years before the 2015 is ready to show all it's got. Today, it is the wine's total sense of harmony that is absolutely alluring. A ru ...Read More »
