2009 Tronquoy-Lalande, St-Estèphe (1.5L)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "The tannins are very fine, with rich fruitcake and smoky flavors. Red berry and black plums give a fruity character, along with delicious acidity. The wine is structured while still remaining very approachable." (4/2012) 92 points James Suckling: "Big and massive wine for this appellation. Some may say too much but loads of fruit underneath. Full and chewy. Needs two to three years to soften." (7/2014) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Tronquoy Lalande, a blend of 51% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Petit Verdot, is the finest wine they have yet produced.

2009 Grand Corbin Manuel, St-Emilion (1.5L)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of several châteaux in Saint-Émilion with the name Corbin attached, this is a finely made, ripe, dusty wine. It conveys a southern French feel with its rich fruitiness and powerful dry tannins. It has concentration and power, and will develop well over the medium-term. Drink from 2016." (6/2014) 90 points Wine Spectator: "This is on the tangy side, featuring a nice sanguine streak that runs through the blackberry and black cherry fruit. The fine-grained finish shows a roasted apple wood edge. Not big, but offers nice range and focus." (6/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Grand-Corbin-Manuel’s offering exhibi ...Read More »

One of the best wines from here in years. Try after 2017." (2/2012) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The final blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was cropped very low at 35 hectoliters per hectare.

2015 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Wow. Real Cantemerle with stupendous power and depth. Mineral, stone and violet character. Full and structure. It starts slowly and then goes on for minutes. Perhaps best ever?" (4/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "With structured tannins and red berry notes, this is already showing an elegant structure. It is the fruit that sings here, gently supported by the fine, dusty tannins.

It is raised in 25% new oak plus one-year barrels. It is a little richer and more opulent than its neighbor, the 2015 Dauzac, due to the higher proportion of Merlot.

2005 Fontenil, Fronsac (1.5L)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the home estate of Dany and Michel Rolland, the 2005 Fontenil has an opaque, thick ruby/purple color. Dense plum, black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit jump from the glass of this full-bodied, terrific Fronsac, which is one of the appellation’s stars of the vintage. Long, rich, young, and capable of lasting another 15-20 years, this is one of the candidates for Wine of the Vintage in Fronsac. This wine actually needs another several years of bottle age.

2000 Labegorce, Margaux (1.5L)

The fruit is elegant and fresh with a fine streak of acidity."

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."

It’s bright, fruity and layered with acidity, and the firm tannins show through slowly, offering power and density for the medium-term." (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." (3/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Dark crimson. Rather gloss ...Read More »

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

It starts slowly and seems almost endless on the palate. Seamless. I want to sing! This is the wine that Margaux never made in some of the classic vintages like 1961, 1959 and 1945.

(2/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(an 80/20 blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon): 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.

2012 Grand Corbin Manuel, St-Emilion (1.5L)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A tiny estate of just over 20 acres on the St.-Emilion-Pomerol border, this 2012 is one of the strongest wines I have yet tasted from this producer. The color is opaque bluish/purple, and the wine offers up notes of blueberry, black raspberry, crushed rock and earth. Chewy, thick, juicy fruit and beautiful, with impressive length, this top-flight St.-Emilion is well under the radar and a major sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 15+ years. It is 80% Merlot and the balance mostly Cabernet Franc. (RP)" (4/2015) Wine Spectator: "This offers a good, direct core of r ...Read More »

Emmanuel Cruse told me how they suffered less rain on the weekend of 12 and 13 September, 32 millimeters being less than in the northern Médoc.

2005 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A classic Médoc, Lanessan’s 2005 exhibits beautiful, almost Pauillac-like, cedary blackcurrant fruit. Always a blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Cabernet Franc and some Merlot and Petit Verdot, the wine is medium to full-bodied and meaty, with forest floor, blackcurrants, and some cedar wood. It is delicious, soft, and surprisingly approachable for a 2005 Médoc. The color is a healthy dark plum/ruby/purple. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

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.

2015 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

The wine is dense purple, rich, medium to full-bodied and powerful, with loads of minerality and depth.

(3/2016) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is adorned with a special label to celebrate the 650th anniversary of the château and the 25th vintage made under the ownership of Daniel and Florence Cathiard. It is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, picked between 23 September until 12 Oc ...Read More »

1988 Fieuzal, Pessac-Leognan (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe, concentrated and youthful, offering generous plum, currant and anise aromas and flavors framed by cedar and toughened a bit by tannins that will need until 1997 to 2000 to settle down. The fruit concentration is impressive." (4/1991) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1988 Fieuzal is an extracted, darkly-colored wine with an excellent nose of sweet curranty fruit, medium body, and a compact, very tannic (nearly astringent) finish. The wine has closed up since its bottling and appears to need considerable time in the bottle. This wine appears to be made in a style that will never s ...Read More »

1982 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (1.5L) (torn labels, nicked capsules)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Highly aromatic nose of raspberry, redcurrant, graphite, licorice and cedar. Leanish, dry and classic, with firm acidity but less flesh than the '96. Lovely traditionally made claret, with terrific finesse and grip. Still evolving. 91+? (ST)" (7/2002) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With massive, huge concentration, excruciating tannin, this earthy, meaty St.-Julien has everything, but it needs to be forgotten for at least 10-15 years. At this tasting, it did not appear to have budged since the last time I had it, and it did not taste terribly different than it did at age five. ...Read More »

2015 d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* Features lush fruit, with creamy-edged plum, raspberry and blackberry flavors that glide along. There's depth here, but this is rounded and fresh in feel, with lovely purity. (Web Only—2016)" 92-93 points James Suckling: "This is so excellent with so much salty, blueberry and stone character. Full and hyper fresh." (4/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateau d'Aiguilhe is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, picked between September 23 and October 8 at 30 hectoliters per hectare, and matured in 30% new oak barrels. It has a very ripe and opulent, quite showing bouquet with fig an ...Read More »

2005 Feytit Clinet, Pomerol (1.5L)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This estate is coming to life again after a long period of mediocrity. The deep ruby/purple-hued 2005 Feytit Clinet is performing brilliantly, offering up notes of chocolate-covered blackberries, licorice, incense, and notions of earth as well as oak. A 1,600-case blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, from a 15-acre vineyard situated near Trotanoy, the 2005 is full-bodied and powerful with sweet but substantial tannin, good acidity, and a long finish. It will benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age, and should improve over the following two decades. An ...Read More »

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. Winemaker Alexandre Van Beek told me that the 2015 "...reflects the true terroir at Giscours that created ...Read More »

2005 Lagrange, St-Julien (1.5L)

96 points James Suckling: "Stunning now. A fabulous nose of currants, crushed raspberry and blackberry. Full- bodied, with perfectly integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish." (7/2014) 94 points Wine & Spirits: "Lagrange produced a joyous Cabernet in 2005, with the lovely textural fatness and kindness of tannin that places it clearly in St-Julien. The dark fruit has youthful energy, the tannins a woodsy undertone, like biting into a fresh grilled porcini. The purity of the flavor makes it delicious; that fruit purity is the factor distinguishing the best wines of the vintage. In the case of Lagrange, i ...Read More »

2006 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Pichon Lalande, which blows away the 2005, represents a return to the velvety-textured, rich, sexy style most readers would associate with Pichon Lalande. This blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot no Petit Verdot was included in the final blend exhibits a dense purple color as well as abundant aromas of chocolate, coffee, cedar, black currants, and a subtle touch of smoke, a rich, savory, full-bodied mouthfeel, plump, fleshy fruit, and a superb finish. This is a 21st century version of the brilliant 1996. Anticipated maturity: 2013-203 ...Read More »

2015 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion (1.5L) (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 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Very classic styled Lynch with pretty ripe fruit and tannin balanced. Full body, firm and chewy tannins yet polished and refined. Alcohol and fruit balance are lower than other top years and give this wine freshness and energy." (4/2016) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine is sumptuous, ripe and generously fruity. It has a black core of dry plum skin and spice. The richness is topped by acidity, forming a contrast with the tannic core." (4/2016) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "They 2015 Lynch Bages is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot that was picked ...Read More »
