2012 de Pitray, Castillon

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* A selection from the best grapes and parcels, this is a dense, firm wine with both great tannins and dark fruits. Acidity gives a lift to the dry core of the wine and brings out the black currant fruits. Wood aging is still showing, so the wine needs time. (RV)" (11/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the old-time favorites and value picks in The Wine Advocate, this wine, from a gorgeous château in the Castillon, sports a completely new label. Black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, and some underbrush and earth are present in this supple-textured, medium-bodied, ...Read More »

2010 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2010 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion

92 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers the profile of the vintage, with spice-infused raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit coursing along nicely, followed by delineated anise and spice notes, all carried by a racy graphite spine. Rock-solid and nicely balanced, this should age elegantly. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM, Web-2013)" 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "A balanced and structured wine that shows fine acidity, berry fruits and dashing acidity. With the balance already there, it is developing well in barrel, promising a stylish wine down the road.

2014 Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château d'Aiguilhe 2014 is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc picked between 3 and 13 October, vatted for 30 days and aged in 30% new oak barrels. It has an immediately pleasurable nose that should remain intact by the time of bottling: bundles of juicy mulberry and strawberry fruit with a smear of vanilla filling in any gaps. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a touch of citric fruit lending tension, impressive depth with a nicely poised, yet elegant finish. There will be better 2014s in Bordeaux but few with the QPR of this lit ...Read More »

It has ripe black fruits and rich, dense structure. Spice and toast balance the fruit, giving an impressive sense of generosity. Drink from 2017.

92 points James Suckling: "Very opulent and rich with loads of fruit and spice. Walnut and chocolate. Full and chewy. Exciting." (3/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A major sleeper of the vintage, this over-achieving St.-Emilion seems to come up big in many of the top vintages and needs more recognition from consumers. Loads of black currants, toasty oak and forest floor notes comprise this large-scaled, substantial wine. With its intense fruit, copius glycerin, and long, complete finish, this wine is successful now but should be better in 3-4 years and last for 15 or more.

Very well done. Drink this." (2/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For more than 30 years, this has been one of my favorite Lalande de Pomerols, and the 2012 leaves no reason to lose confidence in this beautifully made wine.

First red vintage from here for new owners who also own Smith-Haut-Lafitte. 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon." (4/2013) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby/plum/purple 2012 exhibits notes of graphite, cedar wood, roasted herbs and sweet red and black currants.

2012 Fleur Cardinale, St-Émilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship wine from the Decoster family, this blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon has been a hugely successful wine since they acquired this 58-acre estate and revolutionized the level of quality. This is consistently one of the best St.-Emilions and over-achieving for its classification. The 2012 has pure, striking aromatics of blueberry, black raspberry, minerals and flowers.

(2/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Fleur de Boüard (in bottle) offers up copious quantities of dark raspberry, blueberries and spring flowers. It has soft velvety tannins, medium to full body, and a very sexy, lush mouthfeel. This is a gorgeous opaque, ruby/purple Lalande de Pomerol that no one will be able to resist.

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.

A gorgeous blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon made by the Decoster family, the 2005 provides more evidence that this property is fully exploiting its tremendous potential.

2015 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

Yet rich and flamboyant. Fruity yet salty and minerally. Electric finish. Stone and chalk undertones. A wonder of a young wine." (3/2016) 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Canon is going to be a benchmark for this historic estate. A blend of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, it was cropped at 42 hl/ha between 14-25 September and 30 September until 2 October respectively.

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.

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.

There is none of that here for sure. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit on the entry. There is excellent structure here, a masculine Gazin with plenty of grip, counterbalanced by abundant tertiary, tobacco-tinged black fruit. There is real salinity towards the finish, completing a superb wine by Nicolas de Bailliencourt and his t ...Read More »

Second wine of Vieux Chateau Certan. From Alexander Thienpont, of whom Robert Parker has said, in reviewing a previous vintage, "Alexander Thienpont continues to turn out brilliant wines from this property situated on the high Plateau of Pomerol." Fresh raspberries on the nose and on the palate with some toasty oak undertones. We drank it as we could not spit it out. This is a must buy. We have never carried this label and very little is made in each vintage. Clyde beffa

95-98 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a gorgeous caressing feel at first, with velvety raspberry and plum fruit, then picks up a light briar echo and a fine pebbly feel through the finish, adding range and length. The latent grip is supple and fully embedded, while an alluring incense note weaves throughout. A thoroughly beguiling wine. (JM)" (3/2015) 95-96 points James Suckling: "There’s a density and refinement to the 2014 Petrus with a dark chocolate, walnut and blueberry character. Violet. The length is beautiful with such density and intensity. The tannins arrive at the end. The wine is 14.3% alcohol. They cut ...Read More »

2015 Trianon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A full-bodied and powerful red with walnut, tile, blackberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Round and ripe tannins. Best ever from here. 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carmenere." (4/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château Trianon has a high-toned bouquet that calms down with aeration to offer black plum, mulberry and spicy aromas that are neatly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with layers of grippy tannin, assertive in the mouth, but requiring more tension and finesse to come through on the slightly bitter finish. (NM) ...Read More »

2015 La Dauphine, Fronsac (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 La Dauphine is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Having vexed about the 2014 last year, the 2015 is a much "happier" sample, pure and quite elegant with black cherries, blueberry and cassis fruit, the new oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp blackberry and bilberry fruit with a healthy sprinkle of white pepper to spice up the finish. This is an excellent Fronsac, although it deserves 4-6 years in bottle. (NM)" (4/2016) 90-91 points James Suckling: "A Fronsac with lots of dried dark fruits and dark chocolate. Full body, velvet ...Read More »

1990 Beausejour (Duffau-Lagarrosse), St-Emilion (bin soiled label)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most singular Bordeaux I have ever tasted, it verges on being port-like, but it pulls back because of the extraordinary minerality and laser-like focus. The wine is massively concentrated, still black/purple-hued to the rim, and offers a nose of incense, blackberries, blueberry liqueur, acacia flowers, and forest floor. It reveals low acidity and high tannins, which are largely concealed by the sheer concentration and lavish glycerin the wine possesses. Aging at a glacial pace, it is approachable, but it will not hit its peak until 2020; it sh ...Read More »

1996 Vieux Château Certan, Pomerol

93 points Wine Spectator: "Decadent and rich, with wild mushrooms, plum and hints of citrus fruit. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Complex, with toasted oak, coffee and ripe fruit. It goes on and on. Wonderful. Big surprise. Get it. One of the best Right Bank wines in 1996. (Web-2007)" 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium-dark red. Vinous aromas of redcurrant, tobacco and smoky, nutty oak. Silky but penetrating in the mouth; an elegantly styled wine with good extract and a light gamey nuance. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and very good persistence. This and the '95 will make ...Read More »

2012 Angelus, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Angélus (55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc) is inky bluish purple in color and exhibits blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with some licorice, charcoal and graphite. It is full-bodied, ripe, and a great, great success for this estate. The tannins are silky and soft, and the wine can be drunk now or over the next 15 or more years. Very tiny yields of 34 hectoliters per hectare rendered a wine with 14.5% alcohol. (RP)" (4/2015) 91-94 points Vinous: "(55% merlot and 45% cabernet franc): Deep, glass-staining purple-ruby. Knockout nose is redolent of fresh cassis, plum, ...Read More »

2000 Fombrauge, St-Emilion (1.5L)

91 points Robert Parker: "A revelation, this stunning wine (also reasonably priced) has turned out to be even better than I thought. 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. It will benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age, and should improve over the following two decades. An ...Read More »

2013 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

88-91 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* Fleshy and inviting, with plum paste, blackberry coulis and black tea notes woven together and backed by a twinge of iron on the finish. Features some showy toast." (4/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my go-to, consistently excellent St.-Emilions that tends to over-perform its pedigree (although it was elevated in the 2012 St.-Emilion classification), Barde-Haut’s 2013 reveals lots of spice, red and black currant and plum notes along with good minerality in a medium-bodied, modern style. There is some depth and ripeness, although it is more superficial than i ...Read More »

2000 La Grave à Pomerol, Pomerol(1.5L)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderful aromas of freshly cut flowers, raspberries and blackberries. Full-bodied, with super refined tannins and a long, caressing finish. All in finesse. This is one I always like. Best after 2010." (04/03) According to Robert Parker: "Atypically powerful, the concentrated, medium to full-bodied 2000 displays more tannin and structure than usual as well as abundant concentration and sweet black cherry fruit. It is more structured and backward than the gorgeous 1998 (still the finest La Grave a Pomerol I have ever tasted, an... Read More »
