2015 Labégorce, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

2014 Deyrem Valentin, Margaux

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Here is a fresh wine that brings out the elegant side of Margaux. It is fruity, with attractive notes of black currant and lively, crisp acidity. (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. (NM)" (10/2016)

(3/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong effort from proprietor Emmanuel Cruse, d’Issan’s 2009 was fashioned from minuscule yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, and its 13.7% natural alcohol set a record at this estate.

2014 Siran, Margaux

92 points James Suckling: "The red and black fruits and delicately herbal character make this quite a complex wine. For this appellation and given the wine’s youthfulness, the balance of fruit, tannins and alcohol is almost seamless."

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

(2/2017) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Still dry and concentrated and with swathes of rich tannins, the wine is dark and dense. The undertow of ripe black fruit is impressive.

It has impressive lift on the nose: blackberry, raspberry and minerals, a bouquet that is captivating. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a core of black fruit, spice and licorice with a lovely peacock's tail on the finish.

Blueberry and black-currant fruitiness gives the wine richness and potential. Drink from 2023. (RV)" (2/2017) 93 points James Suckling: "A little bit shy on the nose, but the balance of good concentration and powdery tannins creates a creamy impression that extends through the long finish — one that’s already smooth enough to give a lot of pleasure.

1996 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux

Thick and lush, with terrific volume in the mouth; harmonious acidity gives the flavors clarity and brightness. Very long, sweet finish. (ST)" (6/1999) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Rauzan-Segla now at 20 years of age has an "airy," perfumed bouquet with wilted rose petals, undergrowth and dried orange peel scents. What it lacks is a sense of presence. Perhaps it is enduring a dumb phase? The palate is much better than the aromatics, showing fine balance and crisp tannins.

2005 Lascombes, Margaux

It's a meaty wine draped in fragrant tannin, built for long aging. It's also an exuberant wine, in both the bright, red currant-scented fruit and the bristle of the tannin. A playfully complex flavor lasts for minutes, the wine still youthful and fresh four days after it was opened. Margaux chic."

The wine has solid but lively black fruits, the tannins dark, firm and full of blackberry juice flavors with a touch of cranberry dryness. It is definitely for aging.

1994 Margaux, Margaux

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This largely forgotten vintage seems to have turned the corner in the last year or two. Because of strict selections made at the top chateaux, the wines always had density, but the level of tannin was frequently too high, and the type of tannin was more green and astringent. Chateau Margaux's 1994 has always been one of the candidates for the 'wine of the vintage.' The wine still has a dense plum/purple color and a big, sweet nose of black fruits intermixed with licorice, camphor, vanilla, and a hint of flowers.

2006 Palmer, Margaux (375ml)

The 2006 Château Palmer was wonderful out of barrel ten years ago and now in bottle, it fulfills its promise with a stunning, precise bouquet of maraschino, iodine, cassis and tobacco scents that seem a few years younger than its Margaux peers. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin that cloak its sweet core of cassis and blackcurrant fruit.

Sweet plum, tobacco, cedar, licorice and new leather are some of the many nuances that take shape in the glass, but it is the wine's purity that is most impressive.

(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 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (1.5L)

96 points James Suckling: "Dark currants and berries with walnuts on the nose. Follows through to a full body, integrated tannins and a gorgeous finish. Exciting. Wow." (2/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Malescot Saint Exupéry is powerful, rich and explosive. One of the more exuberant, flamboyant Margaux that readers will come across, the Malescot exudes serious depth and intensity. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and dark spice meld into the deep, succulent finish. The 2014 needs time in bottle, but it is impressive and also highly promising (AG)" (2/2017) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is an attractive, al ...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 »

2007 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

90 points Wine Spectator: "This exhibits plum, milk chocolate and light toasty oak aromas. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins, delicious fruit and a medium finish. Very balanced and nicely textured. Enjoy the softness. Best after 2013. (JS)" (3/2010) Jancis Robinson: "Healthy ruby. Round and easy and fully evolved. Quite a charmer in Margaux mould even if it is not that ambitious. Relatively light but with classic claret attributes of refreshment. Drink 2014-2024. (JR)" (3/2015)

The yields came in at 51 hectoliters per hectare and it is matured in 75% new oak and 25% one-year-old barrels, the final alcohol level 13.3%. It has a beautifully defined, very detailed bouquet with mineral-rich black fruit laced with cedar and graphite notes, living up to its nom de plume as the "Pauillac of Margaux." The palate is simply the best t ...Read More »

1995 Malescot-St-Exupery, Margaux

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine may merit an outstanding rating. It offers a classic Margaux combination of elegance and richness. Medium-bodied, with delicate, beautifully ripe, black currant and floral aromas that compete with subtle new oak, the 1995 Malescot hits the palate with a lovely concoction of fruit, nicely integrated tannin and acidity, and a stylish, graceful feel. This quintessentially elegant Bordeaux should continue to improve in the bottle. A beauty! (RP)" (2/1998) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Plenty of plum and floral aromas, with hints of red licorice. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine ...Read More »

1982 Prieure-Lichine, Margaux

Decanter: "Fairly deep red, some maturity; delicate and pretty nose, quite cedary; soft, rounded, attractive texture, plush, fully mature, light oaky bite, still fresh, light chocolatey finish; quite good length." (10/2003) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium red. Aromatic nose of plum, redcurrant, spice cake and coffee. Smooth and silky, with good texture and concentration. (ST)" (7/2002) Wine Spectator: "Rich and delicious. Dark ruby-garnet color, with an amber rim. Loads of crushed berry character, with hints of new wood. Full-bodied and very chewy, with masses of fruit and a long, long finish. (JS) ...Read More »

2015 Giscours, Margaux (1.5L) (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. Winemaker Alexandre Van Beek told me that the 2015 "...reflects the true terroir at Giscours that created ...Read More »

2014 d'Issan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "Complex aromas of sweet tobacco, chocolate, cedar and plums. Undertones of blackcurrants and dark chocolate. Dense and tight with a beautifully and tightly knit palate, yet this shows so much intensity and length. Love the wet-earth and berry character on the finish. Give this three to four years to soften even if it’s fantastic already to taste." (2/2017) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château d'Issan 2014 is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot picked between 25 September and 15 October and matured in 50% new oak. It has a very precise, quite minerally bouquet that has ...Read More »

2015 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "Very solid and powerful with dried mushroom and wet earth aromas and flavors. Complex. Full and chewy yet so polished and long. Spicy, meat and gorgeous. Most serious Alter Ego ever. More inner Ego now!" (4/2016) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a beautifully perfumed wine. It has ripe black fruits that shoot through the richness. It has a velvet texture, rounded and already smooth. There is just a shot of tannin and the hint of wood at the end. (RV)" (4/2016) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Alter Ego is round, succulent and also a terrific introduction to the vintage. Raspberry jam, cinnamon, flowers and ...Read More »
