2009 La Tour de Mons, Margaux

91 points Wine Spectator: "This assertive red delivers bold flavors, with crisp texture, offering bright black cherry and pomegranate notes over firm tannins. Orange zest acidity carries this through the juicy finish. Drink now through 2020." (3/2012) Jancis Robinson: "40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. A bit of Marmite yeast extract and a hint of moss on the nose. Very solid and firm with marked dry tannins after impressively ripe but not sweet fruit. More solid than a stereotypical Margaux but a very creditable wine." (10/2011) James Suckling: "Aromas and flavors of currants, coffee and chocolate fo ...Read More »

2009 Brio de Cantenac Brown, Margaux

91 points James Suckling: "Wonderful perfumes of flowers and ripe strawberries, follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a delicious succulent finish. Bright acidity too. Second wine of Cantenac-Brown. Best in 2016." (2/2012) K&L Notes: Cantenac Brown created the BriO label in 2001 to express the more modern aspects of the winery. The wine is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc, aged 12 months in 25% new oak barrels.

2012 Cantenac Brown, Margaux

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." (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. Best from 2017 through 2025."

2014 Labégorce, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "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.

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."

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.

Lovely chocolate, toasted oak and coffee too. Gorgeous balance. Best in 2016." (4/2012)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A wine that continues the impressive rise of du Tertre. It is becoming one of the sure values of Margaux, and this 2009 is both ripe and finely balanced. The acidity boosts the rich fruits, sweet tannins and the warm finish."

Medium to full-bodied, very approachable and silky, this suave, very sexy wine can be drunk early on as well as aged for 20+ years.

Red cherry, red currant and mint open up in a translucent, beautifully delineated wine. Ferrous and savory notes follow as the wine blossoms in the glass, revealing its depth and resonance. All the elements fall into place in a gracious wine that is at once classically austere, yet also supple and highly expressive, with virtually no sensation of tannin and terrific overall balance.

This wine should age nicely, yet have a degree of accessibility young. (RP)" (2/1998) Jancis Robinson: "Owned by the Gasquetons until 1997. Looks quite evolved. Mid ruby with strong rusty notes at the rim. Very light nose. Lots of gentle evolution. Not in the first flush of youth but this has charm. Needs drinking before the fruit fades though."

The flavors are bright and floral throughout, with plenty of red currant, cherry and raspberry. There is virtually no sensation of tannin.

The gorgeously long finish is driven by old-school tannins, with the smoldering edge going on and on. A brick house of a Margaux, with more charcoal than graphite, more austerity than elegance and more power than refinement.—Non-blind Château Margaux vertical (December 2013). Drink now through 2034.

But there is also some density."

Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars.

This surprisingly charming and round offering is reminiscent of a vintage such as 1985. Although neither a blockbuster nor a heavyweight, it grows in the mouth revealing tremendous length as well as purity. Administrator Paul Pontallier prefers it to the more austere 1998, as do I.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I had this wine both in Seoul, Korea in February, and from my cellar in December, 2008, and it was remarkable how identical the wines smelled and tasted. It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers, camphor, sweet red and black fruits, a hint of licorice, and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging.

1990 Margaux, Margaux

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I had this wine both in Seoul, Korea in February, and from my cellar in December, 2008, and it was remarkable how identical the wines smelled and tasted. It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers, camphor, sweet red and black fruits, a hint of licorice, and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging. Round and generous with low acidity, but an opulent, full-bodied richness that is fresh with laser-like precision, this stunning wine is just beginning to reach its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another three decade ...Read More »

2002 Margaux, Margaux

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing better from bottle than at any time in cask (which of course is the objective of great winemaking, isn’t it?), this wine reveals a dense ruby/purple color in a style somewhat reminiscent of the 1988 but with more power, concentration, and volume. It has a beautifully elegant nose of black fruits intermixed with truffle, flower, and oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied, dense, with wonderful precision, freshness, and a long, full-bodied finish with impressive levels of concentration. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030. (RP)" (4/2005)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, deep ...Read More »

1995 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 is a silky, supple, charming, forthcoming wine that is well above its cru bourgeois classification. The color is a healthy saturated deep ruby/purple, and the wine offers up gobs of jammy black fruits intermixed with subtle herbs, spice, and toast. In the mouth, the wine displays excellent richness, a layered, medium-bodied personality, well-disguised tannin and acidity, and a hedonistic mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. A sleeper of the vintage." (2/1998) Wine Spectator: "Refined, pretty '95. Currants, blackberries and green tobacco aromas. Medium-bodied ...Read More »

2010 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "Wow. This shows a wonderful core of intense, ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Loads of berry, chocolate and toasted oak. A joy to taste young. Hard to decide if it's better than 2009 at this stage." (4/2011)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The former home of Alexis Lichine is now owned by a Pacific-based French mining company. The low yields of the 2010 (the vineyard was hit by hail) have produced a smooth and rich style of wine, which is weighty while also showing fine acidity on the finish. This has definite aging potential." (2/2013)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dense purple, with loads of blueberry and blackberry f ...Read More »

2000 d'Issan, Margaux (1.5L)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fully mature, the 2000 D’Issan is a quintessentially elegant, yet concentrated, aristocratic Margaux that defines the appellation. The wine has a dark ruby/purple color just beginning to lighten at the edge. Notes of charcoal, acacia flowers, black raspberries, and blue fruits are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine that builds incrementally on the palate. With its outstanding purity, richness, elegance and length, this is a beauty that has reached its window of maturity, where it should stay for another 15 or more years. (RP)" (6/2010) Jancis Robinson: "Attractive evo ...Read More »

2014 d'Issan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a serious wine, with dense tannins and concentrated structure. It has strong wood and smoky bacon notes that need to harmonize with the dark plum flavor and ample acidity." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "A dense and tight wine with cedar, berry, light chocolate and nut character. Full body, compacted center palate with muscular tannins." (3/2015) 89-91 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 d'Issan is an open, forward wine that should drink well pretty much upon release as it already shows quite a bit of immediacy. Black cherry, plum, spice, new leather and licorice are some of the notes that ...Read More »

1998 d'Issan, Margaux

Decanter: "Subtle black fruits intermixed with spice and liquorice. Full Bodied, rich on the attack with soft tannin, fine concentration. An elegant and stylish Margaux. (CG)" (6/2002) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Readers need to pay increasing attention to the efforts of the young Emmanuel Cruse, who has racheted up the level of d'Issan's quality.The dark ruby-colored, elegant, finesse-filled 1998 d'Issan reveals a floral, licorice, herb, and blackberry/currant-scented bouquet. Medium-bodied, with sweet tannin, a soft entry on the palate, fine concentration, a pure finish, and moderate tannin . ...Read More »

2014 Kirwan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Firm and concentrated, this is a dark wine that also has ample fruitiness. The freshness and the structure combine harmoniously, resulting in a dry core of black currant flavor that's framed by layers of bright acidity." (3/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Château Kirwan, which was blended in mid-January and is being raised in around 40% new wood, has an intense bouquet. Tasting it alongside the '14 Gruaud Larose, it does not quite have the same detail, but what I appreciate here is that it is quintessentially "Margaux" those violets bursting from the glass f ...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." (3/2015) 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 and ...Read More »

2011 Margaux, Margaux (1.5L) (Previously $1200)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "** Cellar Selection ** A solidly structured wine, it is both elegant and intensely powerful. It is disclosing its fruitiness slowly, at the moment dense and concentrated. A restrained edge provides complexity and balance. It will need aging, so don’t drink before 2022." (5/2014)94 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of flowers with hints of strawberries and currants. Extremely aromatic. This is full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a racy finish. It is very finely structured but chewy and austere. I like the tension to this. Try in 2018." (2/2014)94 points Wine Spectator: "This has a restrained core of stee ...Read More »

Clyde loves this property, and you should try this 50-year-old wine. According to Robert Parker: "Siran remains an underrated ... wine that frequently out-performs many of the Margaux appellation's more prestigious wines..." (04/92) Reconditioned at the property in last ten years-direct from property. Great party size.

2005 Lascombes, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A gorgeous example of Lascombes, the 2005, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, continues the remarkable turn-around in quality that began five years ago. A stunningly opulent wine with a dense purple color, the 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, full body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish. This is a brilliant, modern-styled Margaux that should age for 30-35 years." (4/2008)94 points Wine & Spirits: "A joyous Lascombes, this ...Read More »
