2004 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

Jancis Robinson: "Tobacco nose with richness. Clean and light and evolved. But not that much punch. Just mild and well behaved." (11/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sweet cherry, dusty, loamy soil, and forest floor-like characteristics make an appearance in this medium-bodied, elegant, pretty, but somewhat superficial 2004. Enjoy its charm and suppleness over the next 5-6 years. (RP)" (6/2007)

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. (RP)" (6/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Round and fruity, with crushed black fruit and a hint of oaky vanilla. Full-bodi ...Read More »

2012 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol (1.5L)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, it transcends the vintage boasting a black/purple color along with sweet black raspberry and blueberry fruit notes intermixed with spring flowers, incense, new oak and lavender. Rich and intensely concentrated, this beauty should drink well for a decade or more. (RP)" (4/2013) 91 points James Suckling: "A very polished red with plum, wet earth, blackberry and spice character. Full body, soft, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Drink in 2017."

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: "(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. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry, with a strong spine of acidity. This very solidly built merlot-dominated wine should ...Read More »

93 points James Suckling: "Currants and crushed blackberries, with hints of flowers on the nose. Full body, yet refined and beautiful with polished tannins and a long finish. So balanced. Excellent second wine from Pichon Baron. Try after 2018." (2/2012) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A polished, fleshy, forward style, with velvety-textured notes of crushed plum, fig sauce and mulled cherry fruit laced with sweet spice and cocoa hints. A licorice edge drives the finish along. Drink now through 2018."

1981 d'Issan, Margaux (1.5L)

Château d'Issan is a property in the Margaux appellation, rated as a third growth in the official Bordeaux Classification of 1855. It is known for its richly aromatic, silky wine of the same name. The estate is located just to the south of Château Margaux, and next door to Palmer. Around 53 of the property's 120 hectares property are under vine (131 of 297 acres).

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 »

1995 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (1.5L)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What sumptuous pleasures await those who purchase either the 1996 or 1995 Pichon Lalande. It is hard to choose a favorite, although the 1995 is a smoother, more immediately sexy and accessible wine. It is an exquisite example of Pichon-Lalande with the Merlot component giving the wine a coffee/chocolatey/cherry component to go along with the Cabernet Sauvignon's and Cabernet Franc's complex blackberry/cassis fruit. The wine possesses an opaque black/ruby/purple color, and sexy, flamboyant aromatics of pain grille, black fruits, and cedar. Exquisite o ...Read More »

Muscular but toned and beautiful." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Pure Cabernet flavors are right at the front of this wine. It has fragrant fruitiness, with layers of black currant and fresh, juicy acidity on the palate. It's a bright wine, with just a touch of smoky wood flavors at the end."

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." (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 »

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."

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.

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.

2000 Fombrauge, St-Emilion (1.5L)

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)

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.

Duhart started making excellent wines in this vintage.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now." (1/1997) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon/20% Merlot, the 1995 is slightly sweeter, more supple and slender than the broader-shouldered 1996. The wine's bouquet offers aromas of ripe berry fruit intermixed with minerals, toasty oak, and spice.

Needs two or three years to open." (2/2016) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Powered by its structure and texture, this complex wine is dense, structured and firm. Plenty of dry and taut tannins dominate at this stage, but it is also full of fruit. The wine will age over many years while not being one of those vintages that will mature forever: the fruitiness will see to that.

(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.

This represents a relatively high percentage of Merlot simply because, as winemaker Philippe Dhalluin told me, that quality was so good. I afforded my sample four to five minutes to open as it was a little reduced at first, but eventually it reveals a gorgeous, extraordinarily intense bouquet of blackberry, cassis, incense and cold slate aromas.

Matured in 60% new oak, it has a more compelling and intense bouquet than the 2015 Langoa Barton at this early stage, whereas in other years I have found the siblings closer together.

Bid on this magnum lot of 1982 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (1.5L) (100RP, 95ST, 95WS, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the monumental wines of the last century is the 1982 Pichon Lalande. Since bottling, it has flirted with perfection, and was a sprinter out of the gate, which gave rise to questions about how quickly it would begin its decline. However, at age 27, it retains all its glossy, rich, flamboyant cassis fruit, chocolaty, berry jam-like notes, and plenty of earthy, foresty flavors. This is a full-bodied, extravagantly rich Pichon Lalande seemingly devoid of acidity and tannin, but the wine is incredibly well-balanced and pure. It is an amazing effort! " (06/2009)

It has a drop-dead gorgeous bouquet that continues the ever greater finesse that has been imparted into this P ...Read More »

2015 Figeac, St-Émilion (1.5L) (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 »

2002 d'Yquem, Sauternes (1.5L)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 2002 Chateau d’Yquem has a delightful bouquet with scents of dried honey, marzipan and melted candle wax. It is not the most complex, but it has very good definition. The palate has a controlled, linear opening with fine acidity and a tightly wound spicy core. This 2002 has a slight bitter edge which lends it race and tension. However, there is a touch of austerity here, as if it is holding something back. You might describe this as a serviceable Yquem: everything in its right place, but refusing to let go. This is a ...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. A ru ...Read More »

2015 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Haut Brion, a blend of 50% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, was picked between 8 September and 5 October, and is matured in the same level of new oak (78%) and IPT (75) as the La Mission. It has a heavenly bouquet that like the La Mission bestows instant gratification - a veritable kaleidoscope of aromas so crystalline that you can pick them out one by one: dark plum, blackcurrant, Kalamata olive and graphite. It is tempting to just nose this all day. The palate has an indescribably stunning balance and like the La Mission, ...Read More »

2014 Capbern, St-Estèphe (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Pure and direct, with a textbook beam of cassis and bitter cherry notes, laced with lilac and iron hints. The racy, unencumbered finish lets the mineral edge shine. Lots of improvement here recently. This may be the best value play in the vintage." (4/2015) 90-92 points Vinous: "A delicious, mouth filling St. Estèphe, the 2014 Capbern captures the personality of the year in the northern Médoc in spades. Hints of smoke, tobacco, licorice, mocha and earthiness wrap around a core of dark fruit in an exuberant wine loaded with pure textural richness. The 2014 finishes with notable ...Read More »

2014 Tour St-Christophe, St. Emilion (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is a stunning barrel sample with oyster shells, blackberries, chalk, blueberries. Full body, great density of fruit and power. Best yet?" (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) 91 points Vinous: "The 201 ...Read More »

2014 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "The wine is serious, darkly structured and firm in character, packed with tannins that lend a very dry feel. Fragrant fruitiness and intense acidity shine through for a very fine wine, likely to age over several decades. (RV)" (4/2015) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "Features a youthfully muscular edge, but remains elegant despite the heft, with a core of plum, red currant and raspberry fruit, guided by supple tannins and backed by subtle tobacco and spice hints. A light bay thread chimes in on the finish, while a juniper detail adds a pleasant underpinning. Displays admirable concentrat ...Read More »

2006 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (1.5L)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis, minerals, bitter chocolate and mocha. Suave, fine-grained and densely packed, with lovely violet lift to its concentrated dark fruit and mineral flavors. Juicy acidity and serious building tannins give this very young wine terrific backbone for aging. Really spreads out to saturate the palate. (ST)" (5/2009) K&L Notes: 93 points Wine Enthusiast! 92 points Robert Parker: "Closed but promising, this is a tannic, masculine style of wine in 2006, with an inky bluish/purple color as well as aromas of incen...

2014 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

89-91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Lanessan is wonderfully silky and nuanced in the glass. Bright red stone fruits, cranberry, blood orange, mint, spices and crushed flowers add nuance in a mid-weight, polished wine that should drink beautifully over the near and medium term. (AG)" (4/2015) Decanter: "Quite dense, firm fruit, classic claret in the old-fashioned style. (SS)" (4/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Dark crimson. Luscious palate entry and then some succulent fruit on the palate and the freshness is (just) not excessive. Just very slight greenness on the finish." (3/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Lanessan 2014 has an unusually ...Read More »
