2016 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

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.

2016 Labégorce, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

What I like about the bouquet is that it is quintessential Margaux--it could not come from anywhere else. Crushed violets infuse black cherries, blueberry and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well-judged acidity, an elegant and very charming Margaux with pencil lead and a touch of spice on the long finish.

It’s so framed." (4/2017) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This perfumed wine has a high percentage of ripe Petit Verdot that gives extra structure to the generous fruit core.

97-100 points Vinous: "The 2016 Margaux is magnificent in the best tradition of the Château Margaux style, which always speaks more to finesse than power. Above all else, the 2016 is a wine of superb persistence, understated power and total refinement. There is wonderful depth and intensity to the ripe red and purplish-hued fruits, accompanied by mint, rose petal and sweet spice overtones that develop in the glass.

It’s equally structured and powerful as the 2015, yet there’s an underlying intellectual serenity to this wine. You taste it, and you want to know and experience it even more.

(RV)" (4/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Deyrem Valentin has a lifted raspberry coulis, strawberry and violet-scented bouquet that feels just a little pinched at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly drier tannin than I expected, a Margaux that is molded in a "Classic" style, austere compared to its peers but with the body and density to suggest that it will age nicely over the next decade.

2014 Labégorce, Margaux

91-94 points Vinous: "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.

2009 Marquis de Terme, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Bright, full ruby-red. Sexy, syrah-like aromas of blackberry, violet, smoke, game and underbrush. Densely packed and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth floral lift to its crushed berry flavors. A very rich and sweet style of Margaux, but the broad, dusty, building tannins call for some cellaring. Boasts excellent length for a wine from this chateau." (7/2012) 93 points Decanter: "Sumptuous cassis and blackberry nose, with a good deal of new oak. Sleek, elegant, poised, with great intensity and purity of fruit.

(2/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The soft, sexy 2009 exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of raspberries, black cherries, black currants, smoke and forest floor. Opulent and round with an attractive viscosity as well as outstanding purity, depth and length, it should drink well for two decades.

2009 Siran, Margaux

(2/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the vertical held at the property, the 2009 Château Siran no longer displays the sur-maturité that was evident just after bottling and seems to have settled down with scents of black plum, spice, blackcurrants and graphite, the latter lending it an almost Brane-Cantenac like veneer.

One of the greatest ever. Superb depth and intensity to this real Bordeaux. Wow." (4/2017) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine has an austere structure, with firm tannins.

(11/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses.

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. A solid effort, this is a wine with great fruit and firm structure to support it. Ripe and full in the mouth, it’s a firm and complex wine with a delicious juicy aftertaste. (RV)" (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.

2015 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

Greatest wine in the history of the estate." (3/2016) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine is all class. Nuanced, delicate and silky in the glass, the 2015 speaks to the finesse that is such a signature of Margaux. All the elements are in the right place.

2006 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

93 points James Suckling: "Wonderful complexity of fruit on the nose, with sweet tobacco, cherries, dried strawberries and flowers. Full body with well-integrated tannins and a complex finish. Ultra-fine tannins. Drink or hold." (6/2013) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Finely structured, this has become an impressive wine, gaining in intensity as it develops. The tannins are powerful but come from concentrated fruit as much as from wood. It is becoming a powerhouse of ripe flavors. This is a wine that shows how Malescot St-Exupéry is joining the top ranks in Margaux." (3/2009) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Complex aromas of truffle, blackberry a ...Read More »

2014 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a complete wine, full of both tannins and great swathes of ripe fruit. It has a serious side as well in its solid structure and concentration. The juicy blackberry fruits are beginning to calm down and meld into a fine dense wine that will age very well. Drink from 2025. (RV)" (2/2017) 92 points James Suckling: "A little bit lighter than some of the 2014 Margauxs, but this is quite an elegant wine with a long, dry finish of some sophistication. Drink now or hold." (2/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Brane-Cantenac has a very classy bouquet, very well defined with blackberry, ...Read More »

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 »

2009 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

98 points James Suckling: "A wine, with intense spice and berry character, with hints of sweet tobacco. It changes all the time from flowers to fruit and wet earth. Full-bodied, with super fine tannins and ripe fruit. It's long and juicy with lovely fruit. Super long and beautiful, with fine tannins that last for minutes. Tight now, but juicy and gorgeous. Best ever from here. Try in 2020." (2/2012) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An inky/purple color is followed by notes of Asian plum sauce, forest floor, creme de cassis, black raspberries and a floral component that is unusual for a Margaux. A wine of exceptiona ...Read More »

2016 Marquis d'Alesme, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc cropped between 4-24 October and matured in 65% new oak. It has a tight and focused bouquet, well defined but less generous than its peers: blackberry, briary, a touch of limestone and cedar aromas gently unfolding in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy texture, very harmonious with superb depth, perhaps demonstrating more roundness and opulence than its peers with a very concentrated finish where I would just like to ...Read More »

(3/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Attractive floral notes intermixed with some blueberry, raspberry and loamy soil notes are followed by an elegant medium-bodied wine with sweet fruit, attractive texture and up-front drinkability. This wine should be consumed over the next decade. La Tour de Mons has turned out an attractive blend of 56% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot in 2010.

2005 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux

97 points James Suckling: "This is a fabulous wine. A very giving wine with an amazing nose of currants, strawberries and flowers. This is a gorgeous wine. Full and powerful, with chewy and ripe tannins and a long, long finish. A serious, structured wine that still needs some time in the bottle. Don’t touch this for another five or six years. Pull the cork after 2016." (5/2012) 97 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #2, Top 100 Wines of 2008* Very beautiful aromas of crushed berry, flowers, currant and Indian spices follow through to a full body, with ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish.

The walnut and spice on the end is gorgeous." (4/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. While the tannins are firm and dry, the fruit is just as important.
