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)"

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 »

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." (3/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Slightly deeper than its sibling namesake, Fourcas Dupre, the 2010 Fourcas Hostens exhibits some notes of cigar smoke, red currants, roasted herbs in a ...Read More »

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) Back In Stock!
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 »

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.

2009 Latour-Martillac, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

94 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous nose of warm stones and dark fruits. Full body with a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins, and a long and intense finish. Best ever. Best after 2016." (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.

James Suckling: "A bit lean, but some attractive blackberry and sweet tobacco character. Medium body. Fresh finish." (4/2011) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium bright red. Restrained aromas and flavors of red cherry, mint, licorice and violet. Offers good but not outstanding intensity of flavor but finishes sweet and suave. Not the last word in complexity or length but nicely made and likely to provide delicious early drinking. Stephane Derenoncourt consults here. (ID)" (5/2011)

2015 l'Evangile, Pomerol (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

99-100 points James Suckling: "What a wine here. It is so traditional and powerful with super depth of fruit and chewy tannins. Full body, incredible concentration and length. It’s so muscular and powerful. So minerally and nutty (walnuts). Marvelous." (4/2016) 99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "In the running for the most opulent, sensationally textured, massive wine in the vintage is the 2015 L'Evangile and if tasting this beauty doesn’t make your heart rate increase, I don’t know what will. Made from 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc brought up in plenty of new oak, its ruby/plum color is followed by an awesome bouque ...Read More »

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.

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.

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.

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 »

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.

2014 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Labégorce is one those 'dark horses' of the vintage, a wine that has a prosperous future. It has a lovely, very pure and sensual bouquet with lifted redcurrant and wild strawberry scents that really evoke the essence of Margaux. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well -udged acidity, good concentration with a satisfying raspberry preserve-infused finish that demonstrates superb persistence. I adored this Labégorce from barrel and now in bottle it does nothing to disprove my initial enthusiasm. Top Margaux ahoy! (NM)" (3/2017) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "0 This ...Read More »

(4/2011) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fruity and juicy, this showcases the accessibility of this estate, while also highlighting some of the tannic structure of its big brother, Léoville-Barton. There is a classic black-currant note that’s balanced by the firm tannins of the vintage." (2/2013) 94 points Wine Spectator: "**V Sweet and fresh with black cherry flavors.

96-98 points Vinous: "A dazzling, towering wine, the 2015 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has put on considerable weight in just the last few months. Today, the 2015 is vivid and intense, with a huge backbone of tannin and marvelous complexity. In 2015, the Cabernet Sauvignon is pushed higher as the Merlot was less consistent in its ripening. Graphite, charcoal, tobacco, crème de cassis and new leather are some of the signatures in what is shaping up to be a super-classic Pichon-Lalande. Simply put, the 2015 is one of the wines of the vintage. Tasted four times. (AG) ...Read More »

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.

1994 Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Pessac-Leognan (1.5L) (Signs of seepage)

90 points Robert Parker: "A classic Graves, the 1994 is made in an elegant, finesse-filled style. This is not an easy style to achieve as the wine has to have good intensity, without tasting too light and insubstantial. The dark ruby-purple-colored 1994 offers a nose of smoke, pure, ripe black-cherries, raspberries, tobacco, and chocolate. Round and delicious, with a multi-layered feel in the mouth, but no sense of weight or heaviness, this is a beautifully pure, elegant expression of Graves that will drink well young yet keep for 12-15 years."

(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 »

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) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This firm wine shows the tannic side of the vintage. Those tannins are dusty, enriched with black-currant fruits and a dense backdrop. The wine is concentrated and elegant, very ageworthy and not likely to be ready before 2025. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Giscours is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot ...Read More »

2015 Haut-Brisson, St-Émilion (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A wonderful red with beautiful precision and depth. Full body, texture of fine silk. Blackberry and violet character. Hints of walnuts. So persistent. 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 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "Shows amazing depth of fruit with fabulous polish and length. Electric acidity. Full body, very integrated and refined tannins. Phenolic finesse shows here. Great finish. It lasts for minutes. Best young Pape Clément I have tasted. Grows in the glass." (3/2016) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Pape Clement is a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It was cropped at 40 hl/ha between 25 September and 15 October with berry by berry destemming. It has a drop-dead gorgeous bouquet that continues the ever greater finesse that has been imparted into this P ...Read More »

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A hold onto your hat wine, the 2015 Château Figeac is pure perfection and one of the wines of this terrific vintage. A blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, its deep purple color is followed by a huge nose of crème de cassis, black raspberries, smoked earth, and graphite. This is followed by a full-bodied, opulent and incredibly concentrated Saint-Emilion that has everything in the right places, no hard edges, thrilling purity of fruit, and a great, great finish. This is one of those rare gems that carries huge intensity and ...Read More »

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) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This vintage was ideal for the rich style that this estate has made its own. This wine is full bodied and ripe with black-currant and dark berry fruits. The tannins fall into the cushioned wine with ease and richness. Of course, the wine should be aged, so wait until 2026. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2017) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "They 2015 Lynch B ...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.
