2009 Maison Blanche, Médoc (1.5L) Top Pick!
2009 Maison Blanche, Médoc (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant, with nicely packed raspberry, fig and blackberry fruit carried by mouthwatering acidity and well-embedded structure. Lots of anise, spice and tar frames the finish. Stéphane Derenoncourt consulting here. Best from 2012 through 2019." (3/2012) K&L Notes: The blend for the 2009 Château Maison Blanche is 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc is usually not included in this wine, but was in 2009 because it came in so perfectly. This is stunningly delicious...blackberries and toasty oak abound. Will cellar well for five-pl... Read More »

2009 Lestruelle, Médoc (1.5L) Top Pick!
2009 Lestruelle, Médoc (1.5L)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Nicely toasty, with vanilla and espresso notes up front, but the core of raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit rushes in behind it, with a long, licorice-filled finish. Should settle in nicely. Stéphane Derenoncourt consulting here. Best from 2012 through 2017." (3/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Light crimson. Smells sweet and light. Very forward and rather soft but lots of fun. Fine tannins perceptible only on the very end of the palate." (4/2010) K&L Notes: You heard it from K&L's Clyde Beffa, Jr. (see below): "Buy cases of this." Here's an ultra-value, everyday Bordeaux that's got rea... Read More »

1996 Cantemerle, Haut-Medoc (1.5L)

One of our top-picks for value-of-the-vintage. Fabulous nose, rich deep flavors, and a great value for the high quality. We weren't the only ones who liked it, either. It got 91 points and a "highly recommended" designation from the Wine Spectator: "The best Cantemerle in years, beautiful and rich, with a wonderful core of fruit. Pretty plum and berry aromas, with hints of tobacco and chocolate, lead to a full-bodied wine with loads of chocolate and berry character. Long, long aftertaste."

2000 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis (1.5L)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under any new classification, this should certainly be a classed growth. Today it is among the leaders of the crus bourgeois. The 2000 is opulent, generous, stylish. The tannins are ripe and sweet, the fruit is finely balanced. It will develop well over the next 10-15 years." (6/2003)91 points Wine Spectator: "Very muscular with currants, mineral and nutmeg character. Full-bodied and chewy, with a long and lively finish. Best after 2008. 29,165 cases made."

2011 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (1.5L) (Previously $330)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is characterized by both structure and rich fruitiness. A dark, smoky character brings out the solid tannins that underlie the black currant fruitiness and the balance. Although it doesn’t have power, an intensity gives a flavor that lasts in the mouth. Drink this wine from 2018." (5/2014) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest second wines now being made, Les Forts de Latour comes from the same parcel every year. The 2011 is composed of 61.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38.5% Merlot. Forty-three percent of the Latour production was relegated to this cuvee. Its opaque pur ...Read More »

1997 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (1.5L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a delicious, attractive, dark ruby/plum-colored offering with complex notes of lead pencil, minerals, black raspberries, currants, and new oak. Medium-bodied, with light tannin, this elegant wine is on a fast evolutionary track. Drink this delicious claret over the next 5-6 years."

Ripe and full in the mouth, it’s a firm and complex wine with a delicious juicy aftertaste." (4/2013)93 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* This red offers beguiling aromas of bergamot, roasted sandalwood and black tea, before giving way to a well-endowed core of plum, blackberry and raspberry reduction notes. The structure is remarkably fine-grained, showing seamless integration through the long finish. A really great showing. Best from 2017 through 2025."

1999 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

Jancis Robinson: "Interestingly evolved nose. Very supple and attractive. Great for now! Good balance and refreshment value." (8/2007) K&L Notes: If vou've followed our vintage reports and Bordeaux offerings, this is a familiar name. Price-to-quality relationship at Cantemerle has been wonderful. The ’99 is no exception. Perfumy nose, slightly oaky aromas. Broad flavors with sweet and silky fruit. Good balance, with strong tannins on the end. A little lighter than the wonderful ’96. Super value! Retasted later in April (2000) - More integrated tannins. Superb structure and balance.

Drink now or hold." (2/2015) 87-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red ruby with purple tinges. Sexy, floral aromas of raspberry, pepper, licorice and spices are vibrant and precise. Juicy, intense and very smooth, with wonderful energy and precision to the flavors of blackberry, licorice and spices.

1990 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc(1.5L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 is opaque in color, with a huge, peppery, spicy, black cherry nose intermingled with aromas of Provencal herbs. In the mouth, there is excellent richness, a density and thickness to the texture, fine spice, tannin and glycerin in the long finish. (RP)" (2/1993) K&L Notes: Over the years Ch. Lanessan has gained quite a following here at K&L for offering exceptional Bordeaux values. While this is more expensive than many of our previous offerings, it is still quite the bargain from the outstanding 1990 vintage. K&L's co-owner and Bordeaux buyer, Clyde Beffa J... Read More »

(4/2011)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is an austere, structured wine. Its tannic framework currently dominates, giving the impression of a firm wine. It feels like classic Bordeaux, upright and dense. This makes for a wine that will need several years' aging."

Rich, powerful and dense, yet remarkably precise, the 2014 boasts extraordinary density and fabulous balance. Scents of black fruits, graphite, smoke, tobacco, grilled herbs and incense meld into a huge core of fruit. Hints of black cherry jam, wild flowers and mint add an attractive aromatic top register on the close.

Very powered, it thrusts black currants and acidity right up front." (6/2008)92 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderful aromas of licorice, crushed blackberry and mineral.

Delicious." (3/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The beautiful 1999 Mouton Rothschild may be a modern day clone of their 1962 or 1985. Its saturated ruby/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of cedar wood, creme de cassis, wood smoke, coffee, and dried herbs. The wine is forward, lush, and full-bodied.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of the most controversial vintages of Rieussec. Very dark gold in color, some observers have said it is oxidized and is falling apart. Despite the dark color, the remarkable taste seems to suggest that this wine has a way to go. The huge nose of toasted almonds, caramel, chocolate, and brown sugar does exhibit a trace of volatile acidity, so technocrats are likely to be turned off. Incredibly rich and full bodied, with a honeyed, luscious texture and extremely intense flavors, this exotic, hugely proportioned wine (15% alcohol) can only be se ...Read More »

2000 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (1.5L)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This full-bodied, modern-styled St.-Emilion offers a sensational perfume of smoky barbecue, jammy black currants, kirsch, licorice, and a touch of pain grille. Fleshy, savory, and full-bodied, it has shed much of its tannin, but still possesses abundant structure. It is an intense, modern-styled, mouthfilling, sumptuous, attention-getting wine to drink over the next decade. (RP)" (6/2010)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Becots, Gérard and Dominique, have produced a stylish, modern wine that powers black, sweet fruits through the deceptively soft tannins. Tarry flavors and layers of n ...Read More »

2001 Pavillon Rouge, Margaux (1.5L)

89 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh and floral, with hints of berries and vanilla. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. Refined. Second wine of Margaux. Best after 2007." (3/2004) K&L Notes: Almost as good as the 2000 for about 1/2 the price. 60% Cabernet, 35% Merlot, 2.5 PV and CF. Sweet oak and refined red fruit aromas. Elegant wine that is very well balanced and sweet on the mid-palate. Ripe, round tannins. Clyde loves it for its delicacy. A winner and we recommend buying this.

2001 Margaux, Margaux (1.5L)

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "'For me, this vintage is what makes Margaux special,' says Margaux winemaker Paul Pontallier. He is right: With its denseness, spice, flavors of black currants layered with dryness and fresh acidity, this is a huge and impressive wine that never forgets that it is Margaux. It is still young, and the dry tannic aftertaste, which lasts for many minutes, shows this." (6/2005)94 points Wine Spectator: "A pure, lovely beam of cassis and steeped plum notes is now in perfect harmony with the fine-grained, lightly cedary and sandalwood-tinged structure. This has grace yet stays persistent, ...Read More »

2014 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Labégorce is round, supple and nicely layered. Smoke, plums, black cherries and French oak meld together in a ripe, racy Margaux built on textured fruit. Sweet floral notes add lift on the layered, sensual finish. This voluptuous Margaux should drink well pretty much upon release. There is a lot to like, that much is clear. The blend is 58% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. Michel Rolland is the Consultant for Labégorce, which is owned by the Perrodo family. Here, the winemaking style appears to be better suited to the intrinsi ...Read More »

1999 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (1.5L)

92 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given."89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A perfumed bouquet of flowers, jammy cassis, sweet oak, and truffles jumps from the glass of this ripe, classic, mid-weight claret. The wine is elegant rather than powerful. It possesses intense fruit, admirable ripeness as well as balance, and a long finish. Enjoy this beautiful, sexy Poyferre over the next 12-14 years." (4/2002) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium-deep red. Redcurrant, cedar and minerals on the nose, along with a cool minty aspect. Then sweet and supple in the mouth, with good flavor intensity and thrust but moderate nuance. Can't match the 200 ...Read More »

1999 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien (1.5L)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers lots of blackberry, mineral and mint on the nose. Full-bodied, with plenty of fruit and racy, polished tannins on the finish. This can go on for many years. But why wait? (Web-2010)" Decanter: "Very fine colour, masses of ripe Cabernet fruit, lovely extraction, impressive. 19.5/20 points" (5/2001) Jancis Robinson: "Rather luscious nose and thick and dense. Lots of fruit. Still quite dry finish. Muscular. Trying to punch at top vintage weight. Medium body - a real success and very good value." (9/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An exotic perfume of tapenade, new saddle leather, damp earth, black currants, ...Read More »
