2007 Labegorce Zede, Margaux Top Pick!
2007 Labegorce Zede, Margaux

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "From 2009, Labégorce-Zédé will no longer exist, being amalgamated with Château Labégorce-Margaux. So this 2007 is one of the last vintages. 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. (RV)" (6/2010) Wine Spectator: "Delicate aromas of currant and flowers follow through to a medium body, with fine tannins and an aftertaste of licorice and delicate berry. Fresh and elegant. (JS, Web-2010)" K&L Notes: This property does not exist anymore as its vineyards go into the L... Read More »

2010 Marquis d'Alesme, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries and minerals with hints of dried flowers follows through to a full body, with silky tannins and a beautifully integrated fruit and tannin profile. Very sexy and refined. So hard to wait on this. But better in 2016." (2/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This is fresh and engaging, with firm but lively singed alder and apple wood notes framing a core of plum, red currant and steeped black cherry fruit. Offers pepper and tobacco hints on the grippy finish. This will need a touch of cellaring to round into form. Best from 2015 through 2028.

2001 Labegorce, Margaux

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. (RV)" (6/2005) Wine Spectator: "Soft and simple, with plum, coffee and light tobacco character. Medium body. Silky finish. (JS) ...Read More »

1991 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) Top Pick!
1991 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L)

Purchased direct from the property and a personal favorite of K&L founder Clyde Beffa, Labegorce appeals to those with a preference for "old school" Bordeaux: structured, earthy, meaty and rustic, with dark fruits and classic Margaux minerality. Time in bottle brings out additional complexity, as the tannins soften as secondary and tertiary aromas and flavors of dried fruits, tobacco, wood and leather emerge. With 25+ years of age, this wine is mature and ready to drink tonight. Open and enjoy with food...steak, preferably!

2015 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
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." (4/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Siran is a blend of 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot picked between 17 September to 12 October. 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 »

2009 Marsac Seguineau, Margaux

2014 Laroque, Margaux

92 points James Suckling: "Some obvious toasty oak aromas here, but this fairly sleek and tannic wine also has plenty of fruit up its sleeve and comes across fresh and lively, rather than heavy or ponderous." (2/2017) 90 points Wine Spectator: "This sports a brambly streak amid the bright raspberry and boysenberry compote flavors. Fresh star anise and black tea details enhance the finish. Approachable now, but there's no rush. (JM)" (3/2017) Vinous: "The 2014 Laroque is a plump, juicy wine to drink now and over the next few years. Sweet red cherry, plum, mocha and floral notes, along with soft contours, add to the wine' ...Read More »

(4/2016) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Very lush and warm, with delicious plum and boysenberry fruit flowing easily over the well-integrated structure. Generous in feel, offering a lingering black tea note. Very suave. (JM, Web-2016)" 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Malescot-St-Exupery has an intriguing and complex bouquet with oyster shells and seaweed infusing the intense black fruit.

2014 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

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." (2/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Siran 2014 has perhaps the most sophisticated bouquet that I have encountered at this stage from this upcoming estate. There is real definition and focus here, more precision than recent vintages have shown. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin. There is good acidity, energetic and animated in the mouth with a vivacious ...Read More »

(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.

2012 La Tour de Mons, Margaux

At this stage the wood aging does give some bitter dark chocolate, although this will integrate. It needs aging; drink from 2019. (RV)" (5/2015) 91 points James Suckling: "This is tight and integrated with firm and racy tannins, bright fruit and hints of wet earth. Full to medium body and complex flavors.

2009 Marquis de Terme, Margaux

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.

This is ripe and generous, full of freshly minted tannins and layers of wood over the ripe berry fruit. Drink this wine from 2024.

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a beautiful wine, full of great fruit and balanced dusty tannins. It is ripe and stylish, with all the elements in place. It should mature well. (RV)" (4/2016) 93-94 points James Suckling: "Wonderful purity of fruit here with blackberry, black currant and floral aromas and flavors. Full body. Fine tannins."

1995 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A more lucid hue than the 1996, this has more ripeness and sensuality on the nose. Redcurrants, cherry and bilberry with tangible new oak. With aeration, a hint of fig compote develops. There is certainly good fruit concentration on the full-bodied, vigorous palate, quite sinewy in style with great weight. Powerful and yet still very right. Layers of red-berried fruit, a hint of damson, cedar and pencil lead. Surprisingly masculine, this has great potential, more so than the ensuing vintage. Drink 2012-2035. (NM)" (8/2007) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very ripe, with an almost raisiny ...Read More »

2014 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants and strawberries follow through to a full body, super-integrated tannins and an extremely long finish. The bright acidity gives the wine a linear edge that focuses in all the fruit. Minerally." (2/2017) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a full-bodied wine, from one of the leading estates in Margaux. It is ripe with juicy blackberry and black-currant fruits. This fruit contrasts with the dark tannins and powerful structure. It is going to develop slowly and impressively to be ready to drink from 2025. (RV)" (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "Th ...Read More »

2014 Kirwan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* While the wine from this major estate is dry at this stage, it is just covering for the juicy black-currant fruit. It is a finely crafted wine, firm and structured while preserving the great fruit of the vintage. With this balance, the wine will develop well. Drink from 2024. (RV)" (2/2017) 93 points James Suckling: "Fresh herb and berry character with hints of lavender. Full to medium body, firm tannins and a long finish. This is on it for the vintage. Drink in 2020." (2/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Château Kirwan, which was blended in mid-January and is being raised in around 4 ...Read More »

2014 Pavillon Rouge, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Unusually, this is almost all Cabernet Sauvignon, yet it is a highly perfumed wine, with fine grain tannins. Acidity and freshness are all around, and there are touches of forward wood notes. (RV)" (4/2015) 93 points James Suckling: "Love the fruit and juicy character to this second wine of Margaux. Medium to full body, superfine tannins and a long finish. The freshness and savory finish are a big plus." (2/2017) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous, with a velvety, caressing feel, as warm plum sauce and blackberry confiture notes glide over a thoroughly embedded graphite edge. Rather lush, but li ...Read More »

98 points James Suckling: "This has such class and power. Aromas of blueberries and blackberries, with hints of violets. Full-bodied, with polished tannins and a juicy finish. Solid and extremely pretty. Fabulous finish. Try in 2020." (2/2012) 98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2012* A beautiful wine, with the firmest tannins surrounded by perfumed fruit. It is dense, of course, but this density is balanced with great elegance, blackberry fruits, sweetness and final juicy acidity. The wine is structured, a powerhouse of concentration while preserving this complete style." (2/2012) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of t ...Read More »

2015 du Tertre, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A wine with definition and refinement. Hints of tobacco and chocolate. Full body, super fine and flavorful. Juicy and savory. 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. The black plum-skin flavors are rich and dense, while the wine ends on a lifted note of black currant. (RV)" (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 du Tertre is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% each of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, picked 9 September until 9 October, matured in around 47% new oak.

2014 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Prieuré-Lichine is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Silky, perfumed and gracious on the palate, the wine exudes class. Sweet floral and spice notes meld into a core of red stone fruit, and silky tannins and vivid flavors lead into a creamy and inviting finish. I would prefer to cellar the 2014 for at least a few years, but it is quite beautiful and polished even at this early stage. The blend is 65 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 30 % Merlot and 5 % Petit Verdot. This is a very strong showing from Prieuré-Lichine and consulting winema ...Read More »

1996 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-brick in color, the 1996 Chateau Rauzan-Segla is scented of dried flowers and creme de cassis with hints of game, black olives and pencil lead. Medium bodied and still quite tight in the mouth, it has a great concentration of layered savory and warm cassis flavors with lively acid and a medium level of grainy tannins, finishing long. (LPB)" (7/2012) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full red-ruby. Explosive aromas of boysenberry juice, espresso and smoky oak. Thick and lush, with terrific volume in the mouth; harmonious acidity gives the flavors clarity and brightness. Very lon ...Read More »
