2014 Chateau Guiraud "G" Bordeaux White Top Pick!
2014 Chateau Guiraud "G" Bordeaux White

90-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The G de Guiraud 2014 has quite a complex bouquet with lively citrus fruit intermixed with sea cave scents. There is something almost marine-like here. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, appreciable weight in the mouth with light green apple and spice notes emerging toward the finish. This is how to do dry white Sauternes. (NM)" (4/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This is a live-wire version, with thyme and verbena notes leading off, followed by pure lemon zest and white peach accents. An herbal edge adds cut through the finish even as the fruit fans out a bit. (JM) ...Read More »

2013 Gazin-Rocquencourt Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of stones, dried lime, and lilly follow through to a full body, dense and tight white. Gorgeous intensity and flavor. Persistent finish. Structured and powerful. Drink or hold." (2/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A super dry white made by the great red winemaking guru, Michel Rolland, yields were 22 hectoliters per hectare and the wine comes from an estate owned by the proprietors of Malartic Lagraviere, the Bonnie family from Belgium. Lots of honeysuckle, tangerine oil, pineapple and honeyed grapefruit notes are found in this shockingly fairly priced beauty. It should drink ...Read More »

2015 La Graside Blanc, Bordeaux

Another of the fine wines of Dominique Robin, Le Blanc de la Graside is sourced from a vineyard three miles south of Libourne that is planted with 60-year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines. Grapes are harvested at full maturity and aged in casks to round out the wine's generous profile, while it retains a mineral-driven finish. Superb buy.

2016 Carbonnieux Blanc, Graves (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Tightly crisp, this coiled, nervy wine is likely to age well. It has a refreshing, crisp undertone that gives it freshness while just hinting at the warmth of the vintage. (RV)" (4/2017) 90-91 points James Suckling: "Linear and solid white with sliced-apple, pear and lemon character. Full body. Little old style but I like it — as always." (4/2017)

2015 Clarendelle Blanc, Grand Vin de Bordeaux

Wine Enthusiast: "The 49% of Sémillon in this rich wine gives it a full, ripe character. It is backed up by the more herbal Sauvignon Blanc to add the freshness. The wine is fruity with citrus and white stone fruits, ready to drink from 2017." (2/2017)

2016 Pavillon Blanc, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is really exciting with a vivid and energetic acidity and brightness. Lemon rind, pear and mineral character. Full-bodied, tight and long. A winner. Great finish." (4/2017) 94-97 points Vinous: "The 2016 Pavillon Blanc is one of the most refined whites of the vintage. Orchard fruit, white flowers, mint and slate notes are beautifully vivid and delineated throughout. Creamy, pliant and polished to the core, the 2016 is simply exceptional. For readers who can find it and afford the price tag, the 2016 Pavillon Blanc is a total knockout and a wine of true aristocratic breedin ...Read More »

2014 Carbonnieux Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cooked apples, lemons and stones. Full body, tangy acidity and a grapefruit aftertaste. Lively and fresh." (2/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Carbonnieux Blanc has a detailed and vivacious bouquet offering attractive blackcurrant leaf and citrus aromas, hints of almond and white chocolate just tucked in nicely below the surface. The palate is well balanced with a slice of bitter lemon on the entry. This is a little more piercing in the mouth compared to its peers, as such, it would shine when partnered with shellfish or even hard cheese, rather than a white Pessa ...Read More »

2014 Clos Marsalette Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of yogurt and cooked apples follow through to a full body, bright acidity and a flavorful finish. Drink now." (2/2017) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Very fresh, with just-cut peach, yellow apple and green plum fruit that is expressive, picking up a strong verbena note along the way. Shows energetic honeysuckle and heather accents through the finish, marrying richness and zip. Distinct from most Pessac whites. Drink now through 2020. (JM)" (3/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Clos Marsalette Blanc is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon picked September 11-12.

2014 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a finely fruity wine—all tangy acidity, crisp lemon and stone fruit. The wood aging shows in the notes of toast and burnt spice. It should all integrate well as it develops into a seriously ageworthy wine. (RV)" (4/2015) 96 points James Suckling: "Clear and vivid with sliced lemons and green apples on the nose. Flows through to a medium to full body, tangy acidity and a long and delicious finish. Give this super white at least two or three years to come together in the bottle."

2014 Clarte de Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

95-96 points James Suckling: "Shows excellent depth and richness with sliced apple, apricot and pineapple character. Big and rich. Excellent. This is pretty amazing. 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Sémillon." (3/2015) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "The quinine, lemon chiffon and white asparagus notes are gliding together already, with a warm macadamia nut accent adding texture and weight to the finish. Still a little youthfully raw at the very end, but shows lovely concentration and length. Tasted non-blind. (JM)" (3/2015) 90-92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Le Clarte de Haut-Brion is unusually dense in this vintage, the result of a brief heat wave ...Read More »

1989 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Previously $600)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the “First Growth” lunch in London. One the outstanding Yquem’s of the modern age, this ’89 rarely disappoints. It has a limpid amber/golden colour. The nose is exuberant, just soaring from the glass with acacia honey, orange-blossom, apricots, quince and a touch of wild heather. Brilliant definition. The palate is perhaps more introspective than I anticipated but beautifully balanced with viscous honeyed fruit, tangerine, peach and just a hint of Seville orange marmalade. Lacquers the mouth in heavenly Sauternes with an extraordinarily long fi ...Read More »

(RV)" (3/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc fulfils its potential that it showed in barrel. It has a well-defined and mineral-driven bouquet with light granitic aromas, a touch of sunflower seed and citrus peel.

Citrus, white flowers, white pepper, mint and green pear abound. Weightless, translucent and also wonderfully taut, the Pavillon Blanc is one of the great white wines of the year.

2014 Tour de Mirambeau "Cuvee Passion" Bordeaux Blanc

A clean yet deceptively rich white Bordeaux from one of Bordeaux's smaller Naujan-et-Postiac properties called Tour de Mirambeau. Run by Thibault Despagne and created in the style of a classic Graves Blanc, the wine is imported by our friend Charles Neal and sees very little distribution outside of France. A true under-the-radar secret for those who enjoy the sauvignon blanc wines of Bordeaux.

2013 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

93-96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, pale yellow-gold. Subtly complex aromas of white stone fruits, lime, nut oil, nutmeg, menthol and bitter grapefruit. A huge, deep wine with laser-like acidity lifting the highly concentrated tropical fruit, white peach, spice and herb flavors. As youthfully chewy, thick and palate-staining as this is, it's also wonderfully light on its feet, showing uncommon class. One of the ten best Bordeaux wines of the year. (ID)" (5/2014) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Still tightly coiled, but the core should unfurl beautifully, revealing a panoply of intense and vivid white ginger, ma ...Read More »

1985 Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (soiled label, 3cm fill)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Château Haut Brion Blanc is candidate for the best dry white Bordeaux produced that decade - period. Having tasted this nectar two or three times in recent months, I can vouch for its extraordinary intensity on the nose: candied orange peel, citrus lemon, cold wet limestone and honeysuckle notes that shimmer in the glass. It almost has a Chablis-like penetration—imagine if Raveneau made white Bordeaux. The palate is perfectly balanced and after 30 years, it as fresh as a daisy, citrus fresh, with a killer line of mineralité, squeezed lime and an ...Read More »
