2001 Bel Orme Tronquoy de Lalande, Haut Medoc (1.5L)

Wine Spectator: "Slightly austere, but has interesting aromas of plum pit and flowers. Medium- to full-bodied, with firm tannins and a medium finish. Very tight still. Traditional in style, but interesting. (JS, Web-2004)"

2010 Malescasse, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Located in the heart of the Haut-Médoc, close to Lamarque, Malescasse is capable of producing sweet-tasting, friendly wines, such as this 2010. It’s bright, fruity and layered with acidity, and the firm tannins show through slowly, offering power and density for the medium-term. (RV)" (2/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Dense and chewy, with espresso and baker's chocolate notes shrouding the dark currant, fig and blackberry fruit at the core, followed by graphite and anise on the finish for now. Should unwind with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2020. (JM)" (3/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Dark crimson. Ra ...Read More »

2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

94 points James Suckling: "A wine with blueberry and mineral aromas follows through to a full body, with fine tannins and a juicy finish. Best for years from here. Needs at least three years of bottle age to soften. Could be better than 2009 in the long run." (2/2013) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry an ...Read More »

2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) Top Pick!
2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This large estate of 131 acres has been run brilliantly by a Belgian family, the Bonnies since their acquisition a number of years ago. 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. The 2012 is a beauty, with a dense ruby/purple color, a fabulously plush, opulent texture and medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, spicy earth and blueberry. Quite rich, yet light on its feet, this is an absolutely textbook Pessac-Lèognan, w ...Read More »

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

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 »

2015 d'Yquem, Sauternes (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

99-100 points James Suckling: "This is an incredible young Yquem that is so vinous like a great vintage of Montrachet but then on the palate it turns to Yquem with spice, dried fruit and mushroom as well as sweet fruit. Last for minutes. Acidity is all there giving it a dynamic vibrance that jolts your senses. Special wine. It has a little more than than 140 grams of residual sugar, less than the legendary of 2001. But is very close in greatness. Let’s wait and see." (4/2016) 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château d'Yquem is a blend of 75% Semillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc that was picked on the gravelly soil ...Read More »

2010 Fourcas Hosten, Listrac (1.5L)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Now at its peak, this is a rich, full-bodied wine. It has a fine blend of dark tannins and dense plum and berry fruits. Maturing well, the wine is well balanced, with a smoky edge and still with a touch of acidity. Drink now. *Editors' Choice* (RV)" (9/2016) 90 points James Suckling: "Lovely aromas of flowers and berries follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. So drinkable now but better in 2016."

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.

2014 Meyney, St-Estèphe (1.5L)

92 points James Suckling: "This is one of the most immediately appealing 2014s from the appellation thanks to its very ripe black fruits, and there’s still a lot of structure behind it. Reminds me of some of Meyney’s top vintages of the 1960s." (2/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, smoke, chocolate, licorice and tobacco are some of the signatures in the 2014 Meyney. This is one of the more overt, flamboyant 2014s readers will come across. Although certainly not a shy wine, it is loaded with personality. The late harvest and the generally intense style favored by consulting winemake ...Read More »

2014 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Lanessan is gorgeous. Wild cherry, herb and tobacco give the wine its distinctive savory aromatic profile, while firm tannins add energy. The result is a touch rustic, but it is also immensely pleasing. There is lovely depth in the glass, although the 2014 appears to have shut down a bit post-bottling. (AG)" (2/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Lanessan 2014 has an unusually high-toned bouquet with blackberry and iodine aromas, Margaux-like in style, with a pinch of cedar and black pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a little pinched at the mo ...Read More »

1969 Pibran, Pauillac (1.5L)

Perched upon a 17-acre in a hilltop in the famed Pauillac region, Château Pibran boasts such prestigious neighbors as Mouton-Rothschild and Pontet-Canet. The estate dates back to the start of the 20th century. Its well-drained gravel site is planted mostly to Merlot, plus Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Petit Verdot, making it the vineyard with perhaps the largest percentage of Merlot in Pauillac. In fact, the wine is often a near-even split of Merlot and Cabernet, giving it a unique lushness in Cab-dominated Pauillac. In 1969, the estate was still own... Read More »

2014 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (1.5L)

96 points James Suckling: "Dark currants and berries with walnuts on the nose. Follows through to a full body, integrated tannins and a gorgeous finish. Exciting. Wow." (2/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Malescot Saint Exupéry is powerful, rich and explosive. One of the more exuberant, flamboyant Margaux that readers will come across, the Malescot exudes serious depth and intensity. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and dark spice meld into the deep, succulent finish. The 2014 needs time in bottle, but it is impressive and also highly promising (AG)" (2/2017) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is an attractive, al ...Read More »

2012 Les Tourelles de Longueville, Pauillac (1.5L)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a fine depth of flavor here, with solid tannins as well as ripe fruit. This second wine of Château Pichon Longueville is packed with the vintage's hallmark of perfumed black-currant fruit. (RV)" (4/2013) 91 points James Suckling: "A beautiful red with chocolate, nuts and cappuccino aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, chewy and rich. Needs two or three years to soften. Triumph for the second wine of Pichon Baron for this vintage!" (2/2015) 91 points Vinous: "The 2012 Les Tourelles de Longueville is gorgeous.

2015 Giscours, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This sets a new level for Giscours with blackberry, black truffle and blueberry. So much walnut and cedar. Full body, dense and incredibly long and powerful. Clearly the best Giscours since 1970 and 1975." (4/2016) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Giscours is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. That is in stark comparison to older vintages, for example the 2000 Giscours that was 50/50 Cabernet and Merlot. This vintage is matured in 50% new oak.

(7/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best ever wine from this estate (even better than their sensational 2005), this full-bodied wine offers notes of blueberry, black currant, asphalt and burning charcoal embers in a deep, layered and multi-dimensional style. It is impressively pure and well-built, with far greater concentration and length than I ever remember this wine having in the past.

(JH)" (9/2011) James Suckling: "wine with a leafy and creamy character with hints of dried fruits. Full body, chewy tannins and a medium finish. Better in 2015." (7/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, this well-made Medoc reveals lots of cedar, tobacco leaf and black currant characteristics, silky tannin, medium to full body and attractive succulence and flesh.

(10/2015) K&L Notes: This second wine of Château Cantemerle is primarily sourced from younger vine parcels from the esteemed estate. The wine has a similar profile to the Grand Vin, but is ready to drink within several years of harvest. That's now! A quick decant reveals generous fruit and and good terroir that is always welcome for under $20. The blend is 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot,and 10% Cabernet Franc.

Rich and intensely concentrated, this beauty should drink well for a decade or more.

Still needs time to come together.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. (JS, Web-2007)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While not as backward as the 1996, the opaque purple-colored 1995 is a tannic, unevolved, dense, concentrated wine that will require 8-10 years of cellaring.

What I like about the bouquet is that it is quintessential Margaux--it could not come from anywhere else. Crushed violets infuse black cherries, blueberry and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well-judged acidity, an elegant and very charming Margaux with pencil lead and a touch of spice on the long finish.

There is concentration, but it is surrounded by so much richness. It can almost be drunk now, but should age well." (2/2012) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very dense and still rather reserved, with dark blueberry, blackberry and fig notes rolled together, framed by freshly brewed espresso and Black Forest cake notes. Long and tarry through the finish, with a melted licorice snap note hanging on at the very end. Best from 2014 through 2030." (3/2012) 92 points James Suckling: "Blueberry an ...Read More »

2010 Saint-Pierre, St-Julien (1.5L)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The final blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot has resulted in a wine of great power, stature, gravitas and density. The wine has a black purple color and a brilliant nose of scorched earth, creme de cassis, espresso roast, blackberries, truffles and licorice. Full-bodied, extremely powerful, yet with abundant sweet tannin, this stunning effort should prove sensational if given 7-10 years of cellaring. It should also last for 30-40 years."

(2/2017) K&L Notes: The origins of the Château Clarke estate date back to the 12th century when the Cistercian monks of the Vertheuil Abbey planted the first vines. Much more recently, the knight Tobie Clarke purchased the land that would permanently bear his name in 1818. Then, after being repeatedly handed down and finally sold, the property was bought in 1973 by the Baron Edmond de Rothschild. It was at this time that the neglected vineyard... Read More »

2000 La Conseillante, Pomerol (1.5L)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "La Conseillante made an excellent wine in 2001, another great one in 2005, and the estate hit home runs in both 2008 and, above all, in 2009. In fact, the latter vintage may well end up being the modern-day reference point for La Conseillante. Nevertheless, there’s a lot to be said for this 2000. An elegant, gentle style that is never a blockbuster, the 2000 La Conseillante has a deep ruby/plum/purple color and an unbelievably expressive nose of sweet kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, incense, toast, and licorice.

Exceptionally rich with an outstanding texture, this medium to full-bodied wine possesses a distinctive, individualistic style, largely because of its floral, blueberry fruit flavors. Although accessible, it will age for two decades. (RP)" (4/2001) 88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good ruby-red.

It should mature well." (4/2016) 93-94 points James Suckling: "Wonderful purity of fruit here with blackberry, black currant and floral aromas and flavors. Full body. Fine tannins." (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Labegorce is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot that was picked between 15 September and 20 October.

2016 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

98-99 points James Suckling: "I have been waiting for this for a long time. It’s a remake of the legendary 1990 Pichon Baron. Full body, ultra-polished yet powerful tannins and a glorious finish. The will evolve beautifully. The core of fruit and tannins are great. A truly great Pichon Baron." (4/2017) 96-99 points Wine Spectator: "Has the pure, fresh, racy feel of the vintage, which is even more admirable considering the depth of the red currant, plum and cherry preserve flavors at the core and the power of the structure on the back end, pulling in accents of graphite and loam. A thumper of a Pauillac. (JM) ...Read More »

2006 Gazin, Pomerol (1.5L)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Complex aromas of green coffee bean, tarragon and blackberry, turning to licorice and violet. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and beautiful fruit. Very balanced and refined for the vintage. Exceptional for this estate. A real beauty. (JS)" (3/2009) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Gazin has a delightful bouquet with small dark cherries, blueberry and iodine aromas, completely different to the 2006 Nénin, much more vigorous and cohesive. This is a bouquet with a sense of purpose. The palate is medium-bodie ...Read More »

1998 Léoville Poyferré, St-Julien (1.5L)

93 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (4/2002) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Well done. Aromas of black truffles and ripe fruit introducing a full-bodied wine with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. A mouthful. Amazing for the vintage in the Médoc. Best after 2006. *Top 100 of 2001, Spectator Selection* (JS)" (1/2001) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Slightly deeper in colour than the 1997. The nose has a real succulence to it: black cherries, blood orange, touch of tobacco and iodine. Very good lift. It reminds me of Ribena after ten minutes in the glass! The palate is surprisingly rich, very well structured with lovely, grainy tann ...Read More »

2001 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and racy, with a beautiful structure of very fine tannins and ripe fruit. There are minerals, currants and berries throughout, yet it's subtle and caressing. Lovely wine. I like this as much as the 2000. (JS)" (3/2004) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Philippe Dhalluin remembers tasting this vintage on his first day at Mouton. A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2001 Clerc Milon has a much fresher, more vital nose than the 2000 with dark berry fruit, clove and bay leaf notes. It has fine definition and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with cri ...Read More »

1998 Magdelaine, St-Emilion (1.5L)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very deep ruby-red with the barest hint of amber at the rim. Rich, deep, utterly captivating aromas of black cherry, red plum and cocoa, complicated by a hint of vanilla and a lovely spicy calcaire freshness. Very dense, rich and lush on the palate, with spicy raspberry, graphite, white pepper and mineral flavors displaying palate-staining intensity and amazing precision. A huge wine for Magdelaine, with a silky mouthfeel and mineral and pepper notes lingering on the finish for minutes. One sip and you understand what a wine of remarkable breed and elega ...Read More »

2015 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "The beauty in the fruit here is so impressive. Full body, super fine tannins. It’s very racy and incredibly long. Sexy and rich finish. Better than the legendary 2009?" (4/2016) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Very lush and warm, with delicious plum and boysenberry fruit flowing easily over the well-integrated structure. Generous in feel, offering a lingering black tea note. Very suave. (JM, Web-2016)" 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Malescot-St-Exupery has an intriguing and complex bouquet with oyster shells and seaweed infusing the intense black fruit.

2010 Malmaison, Moulis (1.5L)

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries and minerals follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a caressing finish. Very finely crafted. Gorgeous wine from here. Better in 2015." (2/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, dark red. Cassis and mint on the classy, youthfully medicinal nose. Juicy and on the lean side but intensely flavored and sharply focused, with bright acidity framing the red berry and licorice flavors. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry, with a strong spine of acidity. This very solidly built Merlot-dominated wine should put on weight with a few years in the bottle. (The ...Read More »

2015 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is very fine and silky with a beautiful vivid blackberry and blueberry character. Super polished tannins. Refined and very, very long. Fabulous harmony to this young wine. Very classic Bordeaux. Superb depth and length. Real Bordeaux." (4/2016) 95-98 points Vinous: "One of the wines of the vintage, the 2015 Pontet-Canet oozes class, finesse and pure pedigree. A hypothetical combination of the 2010 (for its dark fruit and tannic structure) and the 2009 (for its voluptuous fruit), the 2015 offers remarkable intensity, power and grace. A host of exotic floral and spice notes ...Read More »

2016 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

98-99 points James Suckling: "This is a superb wine. I didn’t think it could be better than the 2015 but indeed it is. Full, layered and sexy. It goes on for minutes with dense fruit, yet it’s also vivid and showcases sublime tannins and acidity balance. Great finish." (4/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Malescot-St-Exupery has an opulent, lavish and pure bouquet with billowing black cherry and blueberry fruit, a touch of mint and graphite emerging with time. I love the delineation to this Margaux. The palate is very well balanced, sensual and voluptuous in style, but that does not detract from the fine ...Read More »
