2010 St Paul, Haut-Medoc

90-91 points James Suckling: "I really like the polished tannins with mineral, berry and violet character. Full and round. Beautiful. This is next to Sociando Mallet."

Lovely texture. 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 percent Merlot and 15 percent Petit Verdot. This property is really on a roll now, delivering racy and structured reds; it gives much more freshness and character to the wine.

2009 Grand Corbin Manuel, St-Emilion (1.5L)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of several châteaux in Saint-Émilion with the name Corbin attached, this is a finely made, ripe, dusty wine. It conveys a southern French feel with its rich fruitiness and powerful dry tannins. It has concentration and power, and will develop well over the medium-term. Drink from 2016."

This is another sensational effort from the Cathiards that is perfectly balanced, complex, super-rich and pure. Drink it over the next 20-25 years.

Better in a year or two." (7/2014) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Redcurrant, mocha and cedary, smoky oak on the ripe nose, with a hint of peppery lift. Lush, ripe and concentrated, offering a dense, thick texture for this wine and a hint of salty herbs. Nicely subtle and perfumed in the mouth. Finishes with suave tannins and sneaky length.

2012 d'Issan, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Château d’Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206). ...Read More »

Citrus and floral notes come forward in an attractive, aromatic white to drink young. There is a lot to like in this expressive Sauvignon Blanc from proprietors Denis et Florence Dubourdieu.

2013 Guiraud, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

Gorgeous, and built for the long haul. Best from 2018 through 2038." (1/2016) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This rich wine is still developing its spice, ginger and complex fruits.

Freshly cut white flowers, mint, sweet spices, pears and lychee all meld together in the glass in an effortless, gracious wine. The soft, intensely floral, crystalline finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. The 2013 Doisy-Daëne impresses for its superb drinkability.

(2/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A bit backward still, with more alder and mesquite leading the way, while the lightly mulled plum, blackberry and black currant fruit sits in the wings. Dark ganache and a chewy, tarry finish keep this shrouded for now, but there's good stuffing for the cellar. Yet likely to stay on the slightly rustic side of th ...Read More »

2009 Caronne Ste-Gemme, Haut-Médoc

90 points Wine Spectator: "***Smart Buys*** Offers a dark, plush feel, with roasted fig and warm currant preserves notes flowing over dark tobacco and bittersweet cocoa flavors, followed by a solid, tarry-edged finish. Drink now through 2019." (3/2012) Jancis Robinson: "60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot. Intense and savoury-edged cassis with a very light leafiness adding freshness. Tight, tense and grippy at the moment but with the fruit to fill the core." (9/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 is made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. Attractive loamy soil not ...Read More »

2005 Haut-Brisson La Reserve, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2005 Haut-Brisson La Reserve, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This well-run property of the Kwok family has produced some great wines in their short tenure as owners. The 2005 La Réserve is an open-knit, sexy, opulent style of wine. Very forward, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color and plenty of crème de cassis, kirsch, licorice and new saddle leather. Spicy and full-bodied, it is best drunk over the next 7-10 years. (RP)" (6/2015) K&L Notes: This wine has everything in perfect proportion. Tobacco, coffee, and toasty aromas. Extremely sweet on the palate. Ripe, soft tannins and plenty of acidity for cellaring. Lots of blackb... Read More »

Of the 2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry and blueberry notes, it exhibits a sort of cool-climate character. Broad, rich and intense on the palate, the wine has plenty of tannins, but they are sweet and well-integrated. Everything is delicately entwined into this beautiful, medium to full-bodied, dense purple wine, which shows stunning character and a prodigious potential for development. This is definitely a major sl

2001 du Tertre, Margaux Top Pick!
2001 du Tertre, Margaux

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under the same ownership as Giscours, and benefiting from big investment in recent years, this is an estate at the top of its form. The wine has aromas of sweet, new wood, while the palate is packed with tarry fruits and spicy wood and herbs. Flavors of ripe black currants give a rich, satisfying feel. This is a wine that is well structured, dense and, given another five years, will be delicious." (6/2005) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Broad and sexy, with supple tannin, the 2001 offers beguiling notes of toast, black currant liqueur, violets, and licorice in a seductive, opulent, medi ...Read More »

2012 Grand Corbin Manuel, St-Emilion

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A tiny estate of just over 20 acres on the St.-Emilion-Pomerol border, this 2012 is one of the strongest wines I have yet tasted from this producer. The color is opaque bluish/purple, and the wine offers up notes of blueberry, black raspberry, crushed rock and earth. Chewy, thick, juicy fruit and beautiful, with impressive length, this top-flight St.-Emilion is well under the radar and a major sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 15+ years. It is 80% Merlot and the balance mostly Cabernet Franc. (RP)" (4/2015) Wine Spectator: "This offers a good, direct core of r ...Read More »

2014 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a bold, spicy profile, with nectarine, ginger, hazelnut and pineapple notes. Shows lots of energy, brimming with spice and focused acidity through the finish. A great showing." (4/2015) 95-96 points James Suckling: "A solid wine with dried fruits, spices, dried mushrooms and medium sweetness. Full-bodied, sweet and intense." (4/2015) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Doisy-Védrines 2014 is a blend of 85% Sémillon and 15% Sauvignon Blanc, a modest 134 grams per liter residual sugar and a pH of 3.55 (a figure that might be a little lower than recent vintages.) It has a fragrant bouquet that is actually q ...Read More »

2009 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deeply rich-colored and flavored wine, smooth and showing the great ripeness of the vintage. Acidity and firm tannins offer structure to what is a spicy, fruity wine, dominated by fresh black plum and prune flavors." (2/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very tight, delivering espresso, iron and kirsch notes wound up at the core, covered for now with bay leaf, tar and roasted mesquite flavors. The long finish has nicely buried racy acidity. This is more lean muscle than overt power, and should age nicely. Best from 2013 through 2021." (4/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Oddly aromatic! Perhaps just a tiny tad o ...Read More »

2012 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classic 2012 Haut-Bailly is staggeringly great wine, with a stunning bouquet of lead pencil shavings, blueberries, black raspberries and blackcurrants and perhaps a touch of spring flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with an almost seamless integration of wood, alcohol and tannin. It is rich, concentrated, stunningly supple, pure and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. This wine defines what is meant by intensity of flavor, but it is light on its feet, à la great cuisine. It should be drinkable reasonably young, but age effortl ...Read More »

2014 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is a knockout. Excellent concentration of fruit and firm tannins. Very, very long. Fruity and intense. Same quality or better than 2010. Impressive." (3/2015) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cantemerle is complete, beautiful and highly expressive. Tobacco, new leather, menthol, cloves, earthiness are all laced together, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that stands out most. The 2014 finishes with notable energy and an invigorating sense of freshness. I won't be surprised if the 2014 comes towards the higher end of this range once bottled.

2009 Phélan-Ségur, St-Estèphe

93 points James Suckling: "Solid wine. Bright blueberry and floral aromas follow through to a full body, with soft, velvety tannins and a long finish. Best since 1989. Try after 2017." (2/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This is fleshy and polished, with layers of crushed plum, fig sauce and blackberry paste that unfurl slowly, backed by maduro tobacco, charcoal and iron. There's lots of minerality on the finish, but it's nicely enveloped in the fruit. Best from 2013 through 2022." (3/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best Phelan-Segur since the 1990, this is a rather dense, full-bodied, massive wine for a cru bourgeois. Sweet blackbe ...Read More »

2014 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This has a phenomenal finish. It’s dense yet agile with dried tropical fruits and spices. Honey, too. Yet so intense and powerful. It really lasts for minutes. Medium sweet yet so fruity and energetic. This shows how you can have ripeness with fruit and then lots of botrytis. Exciting wine." (3/2015) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Rieussec 2014 is a blend of 93% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle, picked from 15 to 29 October through seven tries, the yield half the normal crop at 13 hectoliters per hectare.

2014 Capbern St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Pure and direct, with a textbook beam of cassis and bitter cherry notes, laced with lilac and iron hints. The racy, unencumbered finish lets the mineral edge shine. Lots of improvement here recently. This may be the best value play in the vintage." (4/2015) 90-92 points Vinous: "A delicious, mouth filling St. Estèphe, the 2014 Capbern captures the personality of the year in the northern Médoc in spades. Hints of smoke, tobacco, licorice, mocha and earthiness wrap around a core of dark fruit in an exuberant wine loaded with pure textural richness. The 2014 finishes with notable ...Read More »
