2012 d'Issan, Margaux Top Pick!
2012 d'Issan, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Château d’Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206).

Fantastic length. Better in 2018 but almost impossible to resist now. Incredible."

2015 Margaux, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "The greatest Margaux ever made. More than perfection. Full body, firm and ultra-silky tannins. Black currant, mineral and floral character. It starts slowly and seems almost endless on the palate. Seamless. I want to sing! This is the wine that Margaux never made in some of the classic vintages like 1961, 1959 and 1945.

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Its bigger sister, the 2005 Château Palmer (53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot), is one of the great efforts of this superlative vintage. Floral notes mixed with blackberry, cassis, plum, licorice and spring flowers soar from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine. It is medium to full-bodied, surprisingly opulent (it has a big percentage of Merlot), long, multi-dimensional and textured. This wonderfully pure, stunning wine once again performs as a first-growth. It should drink well for the next 20-25 years. (RP)" (6/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting ...Read More »

2013 Dauzac, Margaux

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Laden with toasty wood flavors and potential fruit richness, this will likely be a fine wine. The blackberry fruit tones taste juicy and fresh on the finish. (RV)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new, bright label and slightly heavier bottle are now in use at this property located at the southern end of the Medoc. The dense ruby/plum/purple-tinged, chunky, fleshy 2013 Dauzac is particularly well-endowed for the vintage. It offers blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with hints of licorice and camphor in its well-made, medium-bodied, pure, nicely textured personality. D ...Read More »

2013 Labégorce, Margaux

90 points James Suckling: "Aromas of tobacco, berry, chocolate and herb. Medium to full body, fresh acidity and fine tannins. Very well made." (2/2016) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full ruby. Spicy and aromatic notes of blackcurrant, potpourri and graphite on the nose. Then suaver and sweeter on the palate, with black cherry and tobacco flavors complicated by aromatic herbs. Improves with aeration to reveal deeper fruit sweetness, finishing long and dry. (ID)" (5/2014) 90 points Vinous: "The 2013 Labegorce is pretty, supple and silky to the core. Freshly cut rose petals, orange peel, bright red berries, flowers and mint grace ...Read More »

2014 Labégorce, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Labégorce, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

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. Here, the winemaking style appears to be better suited to the intrinsi ...Read More »

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: "*#2 on 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. Extremely polished and b ...Read More »

2004 Palmer, Margaux (Previously 250)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This stunning wine is one of the vintage’s great successes. Administrator Thomas Duroux has fashioned a modern day version of Palmer’s brilliant 1966. Displaying a rare combination of power and elegance, this dense purple-colored offering exhibits notes of blackberries, truffles, flowers, incense, and camphor. Long, classic, and medium to full-bodied with stunning texture and richness, this superb effort is a candidate for the finest Margaux of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025+. (RP)" (6/2007) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This wine hits the opulent end ...Read More »

2015 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is so sexy with superbly polished tannins that gives the wine super length and definition. Compacted and tight. Full body, tight yet flamboyant at the same time. Loving it." (3/2016) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Rauzan-Segla is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc cropped at 40 hl/ha between 10 September with the young Merlot vines and finishing with the Cabernet Sauvignon, which was picked between 22 September and 9 October.

2013 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

91-92 points James Suckling: "A pretty wine with a solid core of fruit with blueberry and mineral character. Floral. Full body, seamless and long. Racy for the vintage. Half the production. Extremely well done." (4/2014) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A healthy dense ruby/purple color is followed by sweet cassis fruit and floral notes, excellent texture, and a medium-bodied mouthfeel in this fresh, lively, concentrated 2013. Drink this impressive, well-made Margaux over the next decade. (RP)" (8/2014) 88-91 points Vinous: "The 2013 Malescot Saint Exupéry is a bit tight and rough around the edges, but it also offers good persistence and dep ...Read More »

2005 Monbrison, Margaux

91 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers aromas of raspberry, blackberry and coffee. Full-bodied, soft and caressing, with pretty ripe fruit and a lovely balance of ripe tannins, toasty oak and ripe fruit. Friendlier than the 2000. Best after 2011. (JS)" (3/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. High-toned aromas of boysenberry and violet. Solid, meaty and a bit chunky, with very good sweetness of fruit. More pliant than many recent vintages of this Margaux. Finishes with firm tannins and notes of black fruits and licorice." (5/2006)

1999 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This 1999 is one of the finest efforts of the vintage. It offers up complex aromatics consisting of herbs, red and black fruits, minerals, acacia flowers, and licorice. The dark plum color does not possess the saturation of a vintage such as 2000, but this is pure seduction in a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, nicely-textured effort. It is virtually impossible to duplicate such a wine anywhere else in the world. (RP)" (4/2002) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Reticent aromas of raspberry, roasted coffee, underbrush, animal fur and charred oak. Silky but firm, with lovely ri ...Read More »

2004 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

92 points James Suckling: "This is rich and decadent with truffles and blackberries on the nose that follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a polished, pretty finish. Delicious now but will but better in a year or two." (7/2013) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A fine, perfumed wine which has ripe fruits, flavored with herbs and with fresh acidity. The tannins are dense but not overwhelming, giving a well-balanced wine, already integrated. (RV)" (6/2005) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Although one of the appellation’s more tannic 2004s, the tannin is beautifully balanced by sweet black currant fruit, spring flower, camphor, and ...Read More »
