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.

2015 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Extremely firm and silky. Dark berry, violet, salt and mineral. Full body. Energy, vibrant and verve. Layered and compressed. Best ever here. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc." (4/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Tour Saint-Christophe, owned by Peter Kwok since 2012, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 33 hl/ha between 3-16 October and matured in 40% new oak. It has an intense nose, perhaps slightly on the alcoholic side due to the Merlot (14.8%). The palate is more controlled and refined.

2015 Figeac, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Figeac is a blend of 29% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc and 43% Cabernet Sauvignon that was picked from 21 September with the Merlot until 15 October with the Cabernet Sauvignon at 41 hectoliters per hectare. The Cabernet comes through strongly on the nose - classic Figeac in many ways - black fruit, a touch of cassis, pencil and a touch of rose petal. The palate is drop-dead gorgeous, its foundation a lattice of filigree tannin and perfectly judged acidity. It is very fresh from its vivacious start to its pencil-lead finish imbued with effortless g ...Read More »

2015 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "This is the greatest red ever produced here, even better than the great wines of the 1950s and 1960s. Full body yet tight and reserved. Superbly refined tannins. Yet rich and flamboyant. Fruity yet salty and minerally. Electric finish. Stone and chalk undertones. A wonder of a young wine." (3/2016) 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Canon is going to be a benchmark for this historic estate. A blend of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, it was cropped at 42 hl/ha between 14-25 September and 30 September until 2 October respectively.

2015 Haut-Brisson, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A wonderful red with beautiful precision and depth. Full body, texture of fine silk. Blackberry and violet character. Hints of walnuts. So persistent. 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.

From Hong Kong’s Kwok family who also own Haut-Brisson in St. Emilion. This is the first year they made. Located next door to Barde-Haut. Better in 2017. Exciting new wine."

2015 Côte de Baleau, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Côte de Baleau has a refined and intense bouquet with precise black and red fruit, seamlessly integrated oak and a sense of terroir coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity and plenty of finesse and poise towards the finish. This is such a pretty Saint Emilion that you almost overlook its length and persistence. It is one of the best wines that I have tasted from the estate.

(4/2016) 95-97 points Vinous: "The 2015 Canon La Gaffelière is seriously impressive. Like all of Stephan von Neipperg's wines in this vintage, the Canon La Gaffelière is endowed with considerable richness and a sense of vertical structure. The significant presence of Cabernet Franc gives the wine striking aromatic lift, which it very much needs. Mocha, red cherry jam and sweet floral notes give the 2015 its soaring perfume.

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.

(2/2012) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A major sleeper of the vintage, this over-achieving St.-Emilion seems to come up big in many of the top vintages and needs more recognition from consumers. Loads of black currants, toasty oak and forest floor notes comprise this large-scaled, substantial wine. With its intense fruit, copius glycerin, and long, complete finish, this wine is successful now but should be better in 3-4 years and last for 15 or mor ...Read More »

(4/2016) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Delightfully pure, with great drive, offering a gorgeous beam of cassis, damson plum and raspberry coulis flavors. Though not shy on depth, this has a pretty iron note throughout and a long, floral-edged finish.

1998 Pavie, St-Emilion

Extremely full-bodied, yet brilliantly delineated, powerful, and awesomely concentrated, it boasts a fabulous mid-palate as well as a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. This vin de garde requires 5-6 years of cellaring. A tour de force in winemaking, it has the potential to be the most profound Pavie ever produced, except for its two successors. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2045. (RP)" (4/2001) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Sappy, liqueu ...Read More »

Full body, extremely long and bright. Super fine tannins. Pure fruit."

2012 L'Arrosée, St-Emilion

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing far better than it did from barrel two years ago, L’Arrosée’s 2012 offers very fragrant, dark raspberry, black cherry and currant notes that jump from the glass of this wine. It’s an intriguing blend of 60% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins, an almost Burgundian complexity, forest-floor notes and medium to full-bodied richness and depth. This is a stunner, complex, precocious, and hard to resist, even in its youthfulness. Drink over the next 15 years. (R ...Read More »

2000 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc, the wine has a sweet nose of menthol, melted licorice, boysenberry, blueberry, and cassis. A broad wine with compelling purity, a layered texture, and sweet tannin, with hints of coffee and earth in the background, this is by far the best Cheval Blanc since 1990 and before 2009.

(2/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An attractive wine from another member of the Chinese Kwok family, the 2012 Tour Saint Christophe has a dense ruby/purple color, appealing cassis and blackcurrant fruit, medium body, foresty floral notes, wood and spice. The color is deep and t ...Read More »

1995 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion (Previously $170)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very fine effort from Clos Fourtet, the 1995 exhibits a medium dark plum color, followed by sweet black cherry and kirsch fruit intertwined with minerals and toasty oak. Tightly wound on the palate, with medium body, excellent delineation and purity, and a spicy finish with plenty of grip, this example has closed down considerably since bottling, but it does possess excellent sweetness and depth. However, the tannin is more elevated, so this 1995 will require patience. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018." (2/1998) Wine Spectator: "Aromas of chocolate, tobacco and berries. M ...Read More »

2005 Rochebelle, St-Émilion

89 points Wine Spectator: "Displays aromas of vanilla, blackberry and hints of coffee. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Soft and tasty already. (Web Only—2008)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Represents undeniable quality/value rapport in 2005. This vintage is so deep in quality among the better run, less heralded estates, that these wines should appeal to readers looking for terrific values from Bordeaux. Most of these wines are Merlot-based and will be drinkable young. Sleeper of the vintage. (RP)" (4/2006) K&L Notes: ** Clyde's pick of the region value. Barrel Tasting notes: Black color. Bl...

2005 Larcis-Ducasse, St-Emilion

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With an unbelievable nose of licorice, tapenade, black cherry and blackcurrant liqueur, as well as full body, super-sweet tannin, and astonishing richness and length, this prodigious effort in 2005 announced the resurrection of this great terroir on the slopes near Château Pavie. Dark garnet/plum/purple, this is compelling stuff and drinkable already, but capable of lasting another 25-30 years. This beauty is not to be missed! (RP)" (6/2015) 94 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* While its Grand Cru classification places it in only the third tier of the St. Emilion hierarchy of qual ...Read More »

2015 Pavie, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Pavie, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "For me, this redefines Pavie. The depth and intensity and more important, the clarity, is really something. Full and ultra-fine tannins. It shows such great tannins and finesse. It is the essences of Pavie." (4/2016) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Pavie is a blend of 60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon that is matured in 80% new oak and 20% one-year-old barrels. It has a really quite glorious bouquet that is sensual and very well defined and pure. In my opinion, just dialing down the new oak even by 15% is allowing more personality and more terroir-express ...Read More »

1983 l'Arrosee, St-Emilion

According to Robert Parker: "...Dark garnet-colored with amber at the edge, the wine offers forceful aromatics consisting of damp earth (or is it a hint of black truffles?). It is medium-bodied, with excellent fruit ... It should continue to drink well for another 7-8 years."

2015 Haut-Brisson, St-Émilion (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A wonderful red with beautiful precision and depth. Full body, texture of fine silk. Blackberry and violet character. Hints of walnuts. So persistent. 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.

2000 l'Arrosee, St. Emilion

92 points Wine Spectator: "Powerful and decadent young red. Lots of smoky, berry and cherry character. Full-bodied and very chewy, with loads of fruit. This always impresses me, with its rich and decadent character. Best after 2009. (JS)" (1/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The resurgence of l’Arrosee that we’ve seen over the last four or five years is not apparent in the 2000. It has matured quickly, revealing an orange/rust color at its rim. Notes of earth, herbes de Provence, black cherries, red currants, and dusty, loamy soil undertones are present in this elegant, fully mature, medium-bodied 2000. (RP) ...Read More »

1993 Figeac, St-Emilion

2015 Figeac, St-Émilion (3L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Figeac is a blend of 29% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc and 43% Cabernet Sauvignon that was picked from 21 September with the Merlot until 15 October with the Cabernet Sauvignon at 41 hectoliters per hectare. The Cabernet comes through strongly on the nose - classic Figeac in many ways - black fruit, a touch of cassis, pencil and a touch of rose petal. The palate is drop-dead gorgeous, its foundation a lattice of filigree tannin and perfectly judged acidity. It is very fresh from its vivacious start to its pencil-lead finish imbued with effortless g ...Read More »

2015 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (3L) (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Extremely firm and silky. Dark berry, violet, salt and mineral. Full body. Energy, vibrant and verve. Layered and compressed. Best ever here. 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc." (4/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Tour Saint-Christophe, owned by Peter Kwok since 2012, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 33 hl/ha between 3-16 October and matured in 40% new oak. It has an intense nose, perhaps slightly on the alcoholic side due to the Merlot (14.8%). The palate is more controlled and refined. There is still some new oak to be absorbed, but the tannins s ...Read More »

(3/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Tour Saint Christophe 2014 has a very pure bouquet. There is some new oak to be subsumed, but there is plenty of fruit to support it. The palate is ripe and sensual on the entry with supple tannin, plush black cherry and blackberry fruit with a generous, modern-style opening with commendable length. This could turn out to be one of Saint Emilion's classier offerings in 2014. (NM)" (4/2015) 88-91 points Vinous: "The 201 ...Read More »
