2010 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2010 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion

92 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers the profile of the vintage, with spice-infused raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit coursing along nicely, followed by delineated anise and spice notes, all carried by a racy graphite spine. Rock-solid and nicely balanced, this should age elegantly. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM, Web-2013)" 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "A balanced and structured wine that shows fine acidity, berry fruits and dashing acidity. With the balance already there, it is developing well in barrel, promising a stylish wine down the road.

2009 Chauvin, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2009 Chauvin, St-Emilion

92 points James Suckling: "Very opulent and rich with loads of fruit and spice. Walnut and chocolate. Full and chewy. Exciting." (3/2016) 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 more.

2012 L'Arrosée, St-Emilion Top Pick!
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 »

2007 Côte de Baleau, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A tasty effort from the Reiffers family, this 2007 (70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits dusty, earthy notes, a lush, medium-bodied style, and abundant black cherry fruit, herb, and spice characteristics. It is deep, medium-bodied, and best drunk over the next 7-8 years. (RP)" (4/2010) Wine Spectator: "Berry and black olive on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a medium-to-light finish. (JS, Web-2008)"

2007 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2007 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong effort from this well-run estate, the 2007 Fleur Cardinale may turn out to be as good as the 2009, which is a slightly more ruggedly constructed and bigger wine, but not necessarily better. The 2007 is a mid-weight blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields were only 35 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine hit 13.5% natural alcohol. Sweet black currant and blueberry fruit intermixed with spring flower, graphite, and subtle wood aromas are followed by an intense, richly fruity St.-Emilion with low acids, sweet, r ...Read More »

1995 Chauvin, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chauvin's 1995 is not dissimilar from the 1994. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a sweet...jammy nose of black fruits, oak, and spice, this (is a) lush, attractively-textured, plump St.-Emilion. (RP)" (10/1997) K&L Notes: Robert Parker… 'Deep ruby/purple-colored, with a sweet, nearly over-ripe, jammy nose of black fruits, oak, and spice, this lush, attractively-textured, plump St.-Emilion will need to be drunk over the next 6-10 years because of its extremely low acidity.'

2012 Fleur Cardinale, St-Émilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship wine from the Decoster family, this blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon has been a hugely successful wine since they acquired this 58-acre estate and revolutionized the level of quality. This is consistently one of the best St.-Emilions and over-achieving for its classification. The 2012 has pure, striking aromatics of blueberry, black raspberry, minerals and flowers.

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.

A gorgeous blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon made by the Decoster family, the 2005 provides more evidence that this property is fully exploiting its tremendous potential. A few years away from reaching its plateau of maturity, its stunning nose of black cherry liqueur, cassis, licorice, earth and spice is followed by a full-bodied, concentrated and pure wine.

2015 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
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.

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.

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 wine has an inky, opaque, plum/purple color and a stunningly rich nose of mulberries, bramble berries, blackberries, licorice and incense as well as touches of toast and graphite. Fabulously concentrated and full-bodied, with a multidimensional mouthfeel, this profound Pavie is in mid-adolescence. It should evolve and continue to drink well for at least another 30-40 years.

Lots of cedar, fruitcake, spice box, black currant and cherry notes jump from the glass of this complex, medium-bodied, silky smooth, fully mature, delicious St.-Emilion.

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cheval Blanc represents the entire vineyard this year, since there is no Le Petit Cheval (two plots that did not meet requirements were not included in any blend). A blend of 45% Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon and 55% Merlot, matured in 100% new oak, it has a very complex bouquet, subtle and tightly wound, very precise with dark berry fruit, hints of graphite, minerals and a hint of black pepper, perhaps a little spicier than recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with extraordinarily fine tannin. Beautifully balanced, perfectly control ...Read More »

2015 Ausone, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Ausone, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "A mindbinder of a wine with pure fruit and so much fine tannins and mineral character. It’s hyper tight and super polished. The palate starts off slowly and ends with a bang. Amazing endless finish. What an energy." (4/2016) 97-100 points Vinous: "The 2015 Ausone is the embodiment of class. A seamless, mind-blowing wine, the Ausone boasts extraordinary purity and finesse. The flavors are deep and unctuous throughout, and yet the wine is remarkably vivid. A host of sweet floral notes and exotic spices are fused into the eternal finish. In 2015, Ausone is as good as it gets. Reade ...Read More »

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. (AG)" (1/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Twenty years ago, this used to be one of my candidates for the worst wine from a top terroir in St.-Emilion. Things have changed ...Read More »

2015 Trianon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A full-bodied and powerful red with walnut, tile, blackberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Round and ripe tannins. Best ever from here. 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carmenere." (4/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château Trianon has a high-toned bouquet that calms down with aeration to offer black plum, mulberry and spicy aromas that are neatly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with layers of grippy tannin, assertive in the mouth, but requiring more tension and finesse to come through on the slightly bitter finish. (NM) ...Read More »

1990 Beausejour (Duffau-Lagarrosse), St-Emilion (bin soiled label)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most singular Bordeaux I have ever tasted, it verges on being port-like, but it pulls back because of the extraordinary minerality and laser-like focus. The wine is massively concentrated, still black/purple-hued to the rim, and offers a nose of incense, blackberries, blueberry liqueur, acacia flowers, and forest floor. It reveals low acidity and high tannins, which are largely concealed by the sheer concentration and lavish glycerin the wine possesses. Aging at a glacial pace, it is approachable, but it will not hit its peak until 2020; it sh ...Read More »

2012 Le Carillon de L'Angélus, St-Émilion (Previously $100)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. A dark wine with rich, fruity blackberry flavors. It's very juicy in character with an opulent, soft texture, reflecting the ripeness of the grapes this vintage. (RV)" (4/2013) 90-91 points James Suckling: "A solid wine with blueberries and minerals. It’s full and tannic yet polished and refined. Second wine of Angelus." (4/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "His second wine, the 2012 Carillon de L’Angélus, has turned out well for proprietor Hubert de Boüard. Dense ruby purple, it is soft and round, with deep fruit, light tannin and a nicely textured mouthfeel. This is a serious second wine to drink ov ...Read More »

2012 Angelus, St-Emilion (Previously $460)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Angélus (55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc) is inky bluish purple in color and exhibits blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with some licorice, charcoal and graphite. It is full-bodied, ripe, and a great, great success for this estate. The tannins are silky and soft, and the wine can be drunk now or over the next 15 or more years. Very tiny yields of 34 hectoliters per hectare rendered a wine with 14.5% alcohol. (RP)" (4/2015) 91-94 points Vinous: "(55% merlot and 45% cabernet franc): Deep, glass-staining purple-ruby. Knockout nose is redolent of fresh cassis, plum, ...Read More »

2000 Fombrauge, St-Emilion (1.5L)

91 points Robert Parker: "A revelation, this stunning wine (also reasonably priced) has turned out to be even better than I thought. Opaque purple-colored, with gorgeous ripeness and richness, a big, sweet mid-palate, and a seamless finish revealing loads of fruit, chocolate, glycerin, and ripe tannin, this opulently-styled 2000 will have few detractors. It is hard not to be totally seduced by this effort. Kudos to proprietor Bernard Magrez and his omnipresent oenologist, Michel Rolland. Bravo! Anticipated maturity: Now-2015." (04/03)

2013 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

88-91 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* Fleshy and inviting, with plum paste, blackberry coulis and black tea notes woven together and backed by a twinge of iron on the finish. Features some showy toast." (4/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my go-to, consistently excellent St.-Emilions that tends to over-perform its pedigree (although it was elevated in the 2012 St.-Emilion classification), Barde-Haut’s 2013 reveals lots of spice, red and black currant and plum notes along with good minerality in a medium-bodied, modern style. There is some depth and ripeness, although it is more superficial than i ...Read More »

1989 Pavie, St-Emilion

90 points Wine Spectator: "All elegance and fine texture. Beautiful aromas of milk chocolate and ripe berries. Full- to medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a sweet fruit, chocolate aftertaste. (JS)" (5/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Lustrous fox red. Lot of gamey development and sweetness. On the way down but lots of pleasure. Except for technocrats. Very hedonist and so soft (though quite refreshing enough) that you could actually drink it without food. 17.5/20 points." (9/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark plum/garnet with an aroma comprised of underbrush, compost, mushroom, fruitcake, sweet, exotic cherries, and Asian spice ... ...Read More »

2005 Sanctus, St. Emilion (3L)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a special 7.5 acre parcel culled from the Bienfaisance vineyard, this 1,000-case cuvee is dominated by its Merlot component (the blend also includes some Cabernet Franc). As are most of St.-Emilion’s garigiste wines, it is given a Burgundian-like treatment of pre-fermentation cold maceration, malolactic in barrel, aging on its lees, and little clarification, all designed to accentuate the terroir, and enhance the wine’s texture and perfume. The stunningly perfumed 2005 offers up notions of toast, black cherry jam, blackberries, espresso roast, white ...Read More »

2006 Le Carillon de L'Angelus, St-Emilion (1.5L) (Previously $200)

The second wine from the great estate of Angelus. It is entering a good drinking window at this stage of development, but will certainly continue to hold in magnum format.
