I like this better than many past vintages." (4/2012) 88-91 points Wine Spectator: "Dark in profile, with a strong cocoa frame to the blackberry and fig notes. Polished in texture, but more heft than purity in the end.

This beauty is loaded with notions of ripe black raspberries, cassis, and toasty oak, and hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, sweet tannin, and a great finish.

It is rich, full-bodied, moderately tannic, but low in acidity and quite heady and powerful (15% natural alcohol).

2014 La Gaffelière, St-Emilion

96 points Vinous: "A wine of total finesse, the 2014 La Gaffelière is gorgeous. Dark and pliant on the palate, with striking nuance, it presents a striking interplay of juicy Merlot fruit and lifted, Cabernet Franc-inflected aromatics. Silky tannins add to the wine's exceptional feel and precision. The blend is 80 % Merlot and 20 % Cabernet Franc. The 2014 spent 25-30 days on the skins, while malolactic fermentation took place partly in tank and partly in barrique. Consulting oenologists Stéphane Derenoncourt and Simon Blanchard did a fabulous job with the 2014. In a word: ...Read More »

2015 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine I was able to taste on multiple occasions, the 2015 Troplong Mondot is a tour de force that readers need to snatch up. This cuvee comes from the cool, clay and limestone soils on the upper plateau (it’s the highest point in the appellation) and is a blend of 92% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, harvest between September 30th and October 21st, that was brought up in 85% new French oak. Sporting a deep, inky color as well as a sensational bouquet of creme de cassis, blackberry, toasted spice, licorice and spring flowers, it’s ano ...Read More »

2016 Canon, St-Emilion (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Canon makes it a double slam-dunk for head winemaker Nicolas Audebert and his team, as it is the second of two ethereal wines that will put the estate right at the top of the Saint Emilion tree. This year is a blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc picked from 22 September until 10 October at 45 hectoliters per hectare. It delivers 14.02% alcohol and an IPT of 65. Matured in 65% new oak, it has a compelling bouquet with intense black cherry and blueberry fruit, a tincture of oyster shell, all with exquisite definition. The palate is medium-b ...Read More »

2014 Cap St. George, St.-Georges-St.-Emilion

91 points James Suckling: "Very pretty aromas of chocolate, forest floor and berries follow through to a full body, tangy acidity and a long and flavorful finish. Tangy. Better in 2019 but excellent now." (2/2017) Vinous: "The 2014 Cap St. Georges is a soft, supple wine to drink now and over the next few years. Succulent dark cherry, spice, leather and tobacco add to the wine's considerable near- and medium-term appeal. Drink 2017-2024. (AG)" (2/2017)

2015 Dassault, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "Blackberry and fresh herb character such as basil or oregano. Full to medium body, chewy tannins and a long, intense finish. A young red with focus and energy. Drink in 2021." (2/2018) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This has some panache, featuring showy fig, boysenberry and blackberry confiture notes strutting through. Shows ample grip, with bramble and graphite accents running underneath, while flashes of singed apple wood and anise check in. Best from 2022 through 2035. (JM)" (3/2018)

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

96-97 points James Suckling: "Here is a wine with great pedigree near Ausone. Full body, yet fast and agile. The finish lasts for minutes. You see the chalky soil in the wine." (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Berliquet is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc picked between 22 September and 9 October, 8-9 October respectively at 35 hl/ha. It has a tight, linear nose at first, precise but tightly-coiled with black cherry and bilberry fruit, a touch of slate in the background. The palate is very well balanced with elegant tannin, nicely pitched acidity, nothing ambitious or outrageous, an almos ...Read More »

2015 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, blueberries, wet earth and black tea. Full-bodied, dense and layered with medium, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows focus and power. Needs three or four years to start coming together." (2/2018) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château Barde-Haut was harvested from September 17 until October 1, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (the latter figure will increase from 2017 with new plantings.) There is no SO2 used during fermentation, just a little after the malolactic, especially the lots in barrel, the part in tank with almost no SO2. T ...Read More »
