2015 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "This really is fantastic with so much ripe fruit and ripe tannins. Exquisite purity and beauty. 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Petit Verdot."

It is raised in 25% new oak plus one-year barrels. It is a little richer and more opulent than its neighbor, the 2015 Dauzac, due to the higher proportion of Merlot. It veers to more red fruit here, wild strawberry and later cassis. The palate is smooth and sensual on the ...Read More »

2015 Giscours, Margaux (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) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Giscours is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. That is in stark comparison to older vintages, for example the 2000 Giscours that was 50/50 Cabernet and Merlot. This vintage is matured in 50% new oak.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A straightforward, dark plum/garnet-colored effort, the 2001 Labegorce reveals smoky, earthy elements intertwined with cherries, plums, and cedar. Medium-bodied and elegant...(RP)" (6/2004) Wine Enthusiast: "Huge investment is paying off at Labegorce. And it has not resulted in a wine that is simply modern in style. For here the new wood is well integrated, the fruit is structured, and never too extracted, and the ripeness also has layers of Bordeaux dryness.

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).

It has a bright, quite vivid bouquet with perfumed dark cherry and blueberry scents, a hint of pencil lead in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a mineral-driven opening.

It veers to more red fruit here, wild strawberry and later cassis. The palate is smooth and sensual on the ...Read More »

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 »

2013 Dauzac, Margaux New!
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 »

2005 Palmer, Margaux Top Pick!
2005 Palmer, Margaux

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 »

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 »

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+.

2000 Giscours, Margaux

93 points Wine Spectator: "Very dark and concentrated, with intense aromas of tobacco, coffee and blackberries. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long finish of licorice, berry and currants. Giscours is doing something special. Best ever from here. (JS)" (3/2003) 92 points James Suckling: "This is very perfumed, with mushrooms, berries, and even strawberries. Full and round on the palate with soft tannins and lovely sweet finish. This is very long and balanced, but still needs time. Just starting to open up now, but give it a couple of years." (2/2011) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Probably the finest Giscours made since the 1975 ...Read More »

2012 Giscours, Margaux

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This firm, dry wine is solidly rich and full in the mouth. With fine acidity and black currant fruit that show through the tannins, it is a wine with considerable potential. (RV)" (4/2013) 92 points James Suckling: "Some red cherries and plums with cedar and clove notes on the nose. This is a full-bodied red with soft tannins, lovely acidity and a long, floral finish. Structured Giscours. Drink from 2018." (2/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Giscours offers up a profile of savory herbs, smoke, tobacco, licorice, dried rose petal, all backed up by beams of tannin that will ensure the 2012 will drink wel ...Read More »

2014 Margaux, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Each year, the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend creeps up—this year it's 90%. Despite the increase, the very fine, elegant tannins seem suspended in the wine. Ample acidity supports the black currant fruitiness, with a firm, impressive structure that promises good aging potential. (RV)" (4/2015) 94-97 points Wine Spectator: "A light savory cassis bush hint marks the Petit Verdot in this blend, but this is quickly consumed by the Cabernet Sauvignon, with a core of well-endowed cassis and plum fruit harnessed by very long, supple tannins. Gorgeous alder, lilac ...Read More »

2015 Boyd Cantenac, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* Dense tannins mark this wine, partnered with black fruit flavors and woody tones. The palate exhibits a good balance between the excellent acidity and a ripe, full structure, finishing fresh." (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Boyd-Cantenac has plenty of ripe blackcurrant, bilberry and wild strawberry fruit on what feels quite a lavish and voluminous nose that is determined to make an impression. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy ripe tannin. This is a Margaux with the dials turned up to ten - a huge overarching structure lacquered with black fruit, s ...Read More »
