2015 Clarendelle Blanc, Grand Vin de Bordeaux

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 Clos Floridène, Graves Blanc

91-94 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* Very tangy and fresh, with lots of thyme and gooseberry notes followed by lemon pith and quinine accents. A rapier finish glistens with fleur de sel details. Shows ample cut and purity. Pitch-perfect Sauvignon Blanc. (JM)" 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Clos Floridene Blanc from Denis and Florience Dubourdieu has a subtle but complex bouquet with scents of white peach, citrus fruit and a touch of patisserie. The palate is very well balanced and quite phenolic in the mouth, some lovely extract here imparting a slightly waxy texture. The acidity is keen and there ...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 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 Chateau Guiraud "G" Bordeaux White

(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.

(2/2016) 96 points Wine Spectator: "This has a gorgeous feel, with opulent fruit offset by racy herb notes and acidity as lemon sherbet, shortbread and white peach flavors are backed by a salted butter– and tarragon-laced finish.

(4/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fresh, fruity and fragrant, this wine has a pure line of acidity and crisp citrus alongside its tangy texture.

(3/2016) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 La Tour Martillac has a gorgeous, complex nose, subtle pear and green apple scents, a whiff of the old sea spray coming in from the Atlantic. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, very complex in the mouth with lip-smacking salinity towards the finish.

There is a touch of ginger, giving the wine extra complexity." 89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright straw yellow. Sauvignon-dominated aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and sage. Then slightly austere in the mouth, with grapefruit and sage flavors lifted by lively acidity and complicated by a strong wet stone quality. Finishes saline and long, with bracing acidity.

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.

1989 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "After a period of prolonged disjointedness, this wine has pulled itself together. The color is deep straw, and the wine displays an intense perfume of creme brulee custard, baked apple pie, and sweet, ripe pineapples and pears. Full-bodied, rich, alcoholic, and fat, with low acidity and considerable sweetness, this is a luxuriously rich, unctuously-textured, heavyweight Sauternes that should become more civilized with age. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2025. (RP)" (1/1998) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Lively, complex, fresh aromas of tropical fruit, honey and spicy oak.

Citrus and yellow fruits work in harmony. (RV)" (4/2016) 89-91 points Vinous: "The 2015 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is soft, open-knit and wonderfully expressive. Scents of peach, apricot and white pepper meld together in an effortless, totally gracious white that will drink well early. This is ...Read More »

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 »

2014 Haut-Bergey Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tight, nervy and textured, this wine is still masking its fruit with upfront toast flavors. It does, however, have great richness at the end that promises good things to come. (RV)" (3/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This has a vigorous feel, with gooseberry, lemon pith and honeysuckle notes that play off each other, picking up a lively quinine streak through the finish. Drink now through 2019. (JM, Web-2017)" Jancis Robinson: "Racy and with decent balance and density. Quite appetising and savoury. Wet stones. Decent persistence. (JR)" (3/2015)

1981 d'Yquem, Sauternes
Bid on this bottle of 1981 d'Yquem, Sauternes (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1981 is certainly an outstanding Yquem, but it will not be considered one of this property's greatest efforts. Light golden, with a moderately intense bouquet of spicy, vanillin oak, fresh melons, and tropical fruit, this full-bodied Yquem has average acidity and a plump, viscous, somewhat precocious feel on the palate. Remarkably long and clean in the finish, it will develop relatively rapidly. (RP)" (01/1998)

2013 Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

98 points James Suckling: "This is a very special Haut-Brion blanc with very exotic aromas and flavors of apricots, peaches, and mangos. Full bodied, dense and agile. Wonderful acidity. Loads of dried fruits on the finish. The high percentage of sauvignon blanc (70%) gives this wine a unique character. Electric fruit yet salty undertones. Drink or hold." (2/2016) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "The pear skin, honeysuckle, chamomile and verbena aromas are all defined already, with an almost creamy feel to the core of white peach, lemon chiffon and macadamia nut notes. Shows remarkable depth and richness, with straw ...Read More »

2015 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "Very balanced and fresh with stone and dried peach aromas and flavors. Very aromatic. Full body, fine phenolics and licorice. Show power and richness." (3/2016) 93-96 points Vinous: "The 2015 La Mission Haut-Bion Blanc is deep, powerful and intense, yet with no excess heaviness. A vertical, structured white, the 2015 possesses remarkable depth along with a spherical expression of fruit that is a joy to behold. The aromatics haven't begun to develop yet, but there is time for that. Plenty of time. This is an especially rich, concentrated white that is going to require a bit of b ...Read More »

2015 Mouton Rothschild "Aile d'Argent," Bordeaux Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This has crazy energy with dried pineapple, pear and sliced apple. Full body, exotic and lively long. So exciting. 55% Sauvignon 43% Semillon and Muscadelle." (4/2016) 89-91 points Vinous: "The 2015 Aile d'Argent, Mouton Rothschild's dry white, is 55% Sauvignon Blanc, 43% Sémillon, 2% Muscadelle, is laced with attractive scents of white flowers, lemon and grapefruit. The fruit was brought in between September 2 and 9 which helps keep the flavors fresh, while a dollop of Muscadelle and a small amount of malolactic fermentation gives the Aile d’Argent its characteristic sweetness ...Read More »
