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.

2009 Poujeaux, Moulis (1.5L)

93 points James Suckling: "Intense aromas of orange peel, blackberries and hints of mushrooms. Full body, with a solid core of soft and velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Well structured. 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.

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.

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

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."

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.

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.

(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.

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 »

The palate starts off slowly and ends with a bang. Amazing endless finish. What an energy." (4/2016) 97-100 points Vinous: "The 2015 Ausone is the embodiment of class.

A blend of 45% Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon and 55% Merlot, matured in 100% new oak, it has a very complex bouquet, subtle and tightly wound, very precise with dark berry fruit, hints of graphite, minerals and a hint of black pepper, perhaps a little spicier than recent vintages.

2014 d'Yquem, Sauternes(1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Apricot tones with lively acidity give this rich wine a vein of freshness. Pear and white peach notes offer weight, while a lime backbone brings levity.

2010 Figeac, St-Émilion (1.5L)

98 points James Suckling: "This is phenomenal on the nose with blackberries, fresh cep mushrooms, forest fruit, and earth. Turns to hazelnuts and dark berries. Subtle. Breathtaking.
