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.

2012 La Tour de Mons, Margaux

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a dense wine, solid with black plum and berry flavors that show great warmth and richness. At this stage the wood aging does give some bitter dark chocolate, although this will integrate. It needs aging; drink from 2019.

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.

2005 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sexy, style of wine from the Lurtons at Brane-Cantenac, this wine (a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc) has a stunning nose of forest floor, licorice, blackcurrants, plums and spring flowers. Soft tannin, full-bodied opulence and beautifully textured, lush richness, make for a brilliant wine from this large, 180-acre vineyard. In spite of the wine’s stunning forward fragrance and lushness, the color still looks as if it is 3-4 years old, rather than a decade.

97 points from the Wine Spectator and the #2 wine of the year! "Estate manager John Kolasa claims that nature did the lion's share of the work in 2005, leaving him and his team with a relatively simple job. Yet vast investment at the estate since the mid-1990s by the owners, who also control Chanel, enabled Rauzan to reap the benefits of a great growing season.

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.

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Editors' Choice*** It may have had a few winemaking controversies in recent years, but Giscours is now on a roll, under the ownership of Dutch businessman Eric Albada Jelgersma. How good it is, is shown in the 2001 wine, which is generous, almost opulent, rich and dense. Despite the richness, though, this is still Bordeaux: Dry tannins, tarry black-fruit flavors and firmness place the wine definitely at the table.

I did not expect the 2003 Chateau Margaux to show this well in a vintage where the southern part of the Medoc was clearly less impressive than the north. However, it is a beautiful, dark plum/purple-tinged effort with sensational aromatics, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a youthfulness, precision and freshness that belie what one generally associates with this vintage.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000 Margaux, Margaux (100JS, 100RP, 98ST, 98W&S, 98WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Absolutely compelling in two tastings of this vintage, the 2000 Margaux is composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. The extraordinary seductiveness, complex aromatics, and purity it exhibits lead me to believe it has reached its window of full maturity. Medium-bodied, with layers of concentration, stunning blue, red, and black fruits intermixed with spring flowers, a subtle dosage of new oak, and a distinctive personality that is elegant while at the same time powerful and substantial, this is a multi-dimensional wine that was extremely approachable and drinkable in both tastings I had of it. The color remains a healthy, even opaque bluish/purple, but there is no reason to hesitate to drink it. It should evolve for another 30-40 years, so there is no hurry either. (RP)" (06/2010)

2015 du Tertre, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
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.

2015 d'Issan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 d'Issan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "This is solid and muscular Issan with round and powerful tannins. Full and long. Impressively structured." (3/2016) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château d'Issan is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot cropped at 40 hl/ha, representing 55% of the production. Emmanuel Cruse told me how they suffered less rain on the weekend of 12 and 13 September, 32 millimeters being less than in the northern Médoc. Cropped between 21 September and 6 October, it has a very pure and sensual bouquet that takes time to open up, eventually offering black cherries and blueberry, a marin ...Read More »

2015 Palmer, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Palmer, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

99-100 points James Suckling: "A wine with incredible character and style with black ink and blueberry aromas and flavors. Full body, extremely fresh and structured with riffing tannins. It is muscular and powerful. White pepper, sea salt, mineral, stone character. A wine built for the long term. The making of the new 1961." (4/2016) 97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* This wine is structured and extraordinarily dense. Powerful tannins and a hint of chocolate from extraction give the wine concentration. The richness of the wine is right there, just suggesting alcohol. There is freshness at the end that bri ...Read More »

2015 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This is really exceptional this year. Full body, very velvety tannins, wet earth, mushroom and currant character. Very stoney. Very long and flavorful. Greatest wine in the history of the estate." (3/2016) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Prieuré-Lichine is all class. Nuanced, delicate and silky in the glass, the 2015 speaks to the finesse that is such a signature of Margaux. All the elements are in the right place. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and floral notes mesh together in an effortless, gracious wine with a bright future. This is the first vintage Stephane Derenoncourt and ...Read More »

1999 Brane Cantenac, Margaux (Previously $100)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the chateau with Henri Lurton. This has a very intense nose: much more opulent and ravishing than you would expect from a ’99. There is a strange aroma, sort of, sage and onion inflecting the ripe red-berried fruits but it clears up to offer more orthodox scents of saddle-leather and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied, quite a gutsy Margaux, sinewy although perhaps lacking a bit of finesse towards the linear finish. (NM)" (3/2010) K&L Notes: Easily the best Brane Cantenac we’ve tasted in years. Wonderful wine! The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot... Read More »

2015 Cantenac Brown, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Cantenac Brown, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Vinous: "The 2015 Cantenac Brown is superb. Translucent, weightless and totally finessed, the 2015 offers outstanding purity and exceptional overall balance. 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. Hints of lavender, iron and smoke add shades of nuance on the tightly wound finish. Over the two weeks I followed it, the Grand Vin put on considerable depth and power. It will be interesting to see where things end up here, but the 2015 was supe ...Read More »

2004 Siran, Margaux

90 points Wine Spectator: "Very pretty blackberry, raspberry and light licorice aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. (JS)" (3/2007) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This deep ruby/purple-hued sleeper of the vintage reveals aromas of camphor, black currants, licorice, and dried herbs. Concentrated, with moderate tannin as well as sweet, pure fruit, it should age nicely for 10-15+ years. (RP)" (6/2007) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby-red. Kirsch and dark berries on the fruit-driven nose, along with a suggestion of superripeness. Lush in texture but quite dry, with lively flavors of blackberry, ...Read More »

2009 d'Issan, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Wonderfully perfumed with dark berry, mineral and chocolate character. Full body, great tannins and a long and racy finish. Very refined. Tight and racy. Better in 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. Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, it exhibits a classic Margaux fragrance of acacia flowers/violets, blueberries, cassis, licorice and camphor. Opulent and full-bodied with sil ...Read More »
