2016 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) New!
2016 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This is superb: a triumph for the vintage considering how complicated it was in St.-Emilion. Elegance with power. Full-bodied, intense and forthright. Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015." (4/2016) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Tour Saint Christophe is gorgeous. Exotic, ripe and voluptuous, the 2016 possesses striking aromatics and plenty of presence. Smoke, grilled herbs, inky dark fruit, crème de cassis and leather are beautifully delineated in the glass. This is the first recent vintage I can remember tasting that is not overextracted. There is a real expressio ...Read More »

2014 de Landiras Rouge, Graves Top Pick!
2014 de Landiras Rouge, Graves

95 points Decanter: "65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. Great intensity of classic Bordeaux fruit on the nose, cassis, dark cherries and liquorice. The rich round palate is bursting with fresh blackberry and blackcurrant, lovely silky tannins great length all in perfect harmony." (6/2016) K&L Notes: This property is located at the southern end of the Graves region, very close to Barsac and Sauternes. This property is one of the oldest in Bordeaux dating from the 14th century. John Statton built the original chateau in 1360 on the site of a Roman villa, while the land was still in Englis... Read More »

2014 Lilian Ladouys, St-Estèphe

93 points James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas of blueberries, orange peel and flowers. Full-bodied, fruity — yet silky and focused with a beautiful center palate of fruit and ripe tannins. Remains fresh and gorgeous. Best ever." (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under the ownership of Jacky Lorenzetti, president of one of France’s top rugby clubs, this estate is now performing impressively. The wine is finely structured with dark tannins and tight acidity and a hint of minerality. It is Merlot-dominated, although it is the 40% Cabernet Sauvignon that brings out the black-currant fruitiness. (RV)" (4/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2 ...Read More »

2005 Coufran, Haut-Médoc

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* If you're looking for great, ripe black currant fruits, this is where to come. The wine is full and hugely fruity, but it still manages a good Bordeaux sense of proportion. (RV)" (6/2006) Jancis Robinson: "Smokiness dominates the nose at the moment but there’s still evidence of fresh and aromatic cassis underneath. Rich and yet juicy. A slightly leafy aftertaste may not to be everyone’s taste but it does finish fresh. (JH)" (12/2007) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Coufran is much more concentrated than normal, with a big, rich, black cherry, earthy, spicy mouthfeel. Medium-bodied, ...Read More »

2010 Lamothe-Bergeron, Haut-Médoc

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark in color, this is a concentrated wine that’s very firm in structure, with dense tannins. It’s powered by ripe, mature black fruits as well as acids that cut through the dry texture. This needs several years of aging. (RV)" (2/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Focused, with a singed apple wood frame propelling the core of plum, cassis and black cherry fruit. The solid finish lets hints of charcoal and anise flitter in, displaying fine cut. (JM)" (3/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Dense bright red. Round and fresh. More forward than most but vigorous. Eerily forward. But a nice package. Minerally." (2/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An ...Read More »

(RP)" (6/2007) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Sexy, rather wild aromas of roasted raspberry and game. Supple but firm-edged, with good grip to the raspberry and mineral flavors. There's good fruit here but limited fat and a restrained sweetness. (ST)" (6/2007) Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry and light tobacco. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. (JS, Web-2007)"

(3/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Deliciously ripe dark plum and boysenberry fruit is carried by fine-grained, sandy tannins and backed by licorice snap and black tea. Direct, pure and tasty.

2014 D'Arce, Côtes de Castillon

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château d’Arce 2014 is the first vintage (last year was hailed off) that comes from 4.41ha of Merlot in Saint Etienne de Lys on the limestone plateau and vinified at Château Poesia. Picked on 14 and 15 October, it was fermented in concrete tanks and matured in 30-50% new oak. It has a floral, feminine bouquet with pure cassis and blueberry scents that are nicely integrated with the wood. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, lithe tannin and well-judged acidity.

At once fresh and ripe in the mouth, with intense flavors of apricot nectar and orange. Finishes ripe and long, with a strong spice character to the fruit flavors, and firm spine. Very promising." (7/2006) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Chateau Nairac is closed and reticent on the nose with light pineapple and citrus peel scents.

Best ever here. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc." (4/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Tour Saint-Christophe, owned by Peter Kwok since 2012, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 33 hl/ha between 3-16 October and matured in 40% new oak.

2015 Reynon Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château Reynon Blanc has a crisp Granny Smith apple and limestone-scented bouquet that is linear and focused, yet bounding full of energy. The palate is medium-bodied with a lively, citrus-driven entry backed by hints of pineapple and guava. Harmonious from start to finish and with impressive substance, this is a great Reynon Blanc from Denis Dubourdieu. (NM)" (4/2016) 89-91 points Vinous: "Denis Dubourdieu's 2015 Reynon is absolutely delicious. Rich, creamy and inviting, the 2015 captures striking richness and plenty of nuance.

Very spicy and earthy. St. Estephe character. Enjoy or age." (2/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of currant and fresh flowers follow through to a medium-to-full body, with chewy tannins and a slightly woody finish, but the fruit comes through.

Full body, very racy and fine. 90% savuignon blanc, 5% sauvignon gris and 5% semillon. Drink or hold." (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.

It is spice, packed with black plum and berry flavors. It is a powerful dense wine to age for several years. Drink from 2023.

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.

1990 Montrose, St-Estèphe
Bid on this bottle of 1990 Montrose, St-Estèphe (100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Montrose vertical in London, the 1990 Montrose is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc (almost identical to the 1989 Montrose) and picked between 14 September and 3 October. It has a formidable reputation and for years it overshadowed the 1989...It shows approximately the same evolution as the 1989 in bottle, but unsurprisingly showed less bricking in magnum format. The bouquet is cut from a different cloth to the 1989 and attests to that warm vintage: hickory, clove, undergrowth and wild fennel, later garrigue-like scents and terracotta, the latter two more pronounced on the bottle format compared to the youthful magnum.

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 »

2010 Gloria, St-Julien Top Pick!
2010 Gloria, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Gloria is an ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate, which would probably be classified if the 1855 hierarchy of the wines of the Medoc were ever done again. Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. It is slightly more restrained than the flamboyant 2009, but equal in quality. This is a juicy, well-proportioned, sensationally concentrated, super-ripe Gloria to drink over the next decades. Of course, it is a sleeper of ...Read More »

2009 Ormes de Pez, St-Estèphe

92 points James Suckling: "A big and chewy wine with plum and currant character. Full body, lots of tannins and a big backbone. Needs at least three to four years of age." (7/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A delicious wine, so fruity. It does have the proper tannins but it is a wine that is already approachable with its sweet fruits-a pleasure to taste. However, for the future, watch those tannins. (RV)" (2/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This is tight and precise, with lots of cut from start to finish, as chiseled graphite and iron notes support the dark currant, mulled fig and crushed blackberry fruit. Long and toasty, but well-inte ...Read More »

2013 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (Previously $60)

95 points Decanter: "Bought by Lalique owner Silvio Denz, the estate was a fortress in the 13th century and takes its current name from Sieur Raymond Peyraguey, who purchased the property in 1618 and from M Lafaurie. He in turn had acquired it in 1796.The estate boasts 41ha under vine, of which some are exceptionally old, planted in the late 1920s.

2009 Marquis de Terme, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Bright, full ruby-red. Sexy, syrah-like aromas of blackberry, violet, smoke, game and underbrush. 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." (7/2012) 93 points Decanter: "Sumptuous cassis and blackberry nose, with a good deal of new oak. Sleek, elegant, poised, with great intensity and purity of fruit. There's spice and vigour on the mid-palate, but it's taut, tight ...Read More »

2013 Croix Mouton, Bordeaux Supérieur

90-91 points James Suckling: "One of the best Bordeaux Supériers I tasted. A 2013 with a solid center palate, a spicy palate and juicy fruit. Round and juicy." (4/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine, dominated by Merlot (about 95%) and the rest Cabernet Franc, shows lovely, round, elegant fruit flavors that resemble mulberry, black cherry and blackcurrant. It doesn-t have a lot of complexity, but the wine is supple, mouth-filling and quite a successful effort from its humble origins.(RP)" (8/2014) Vinous: "The 2013 Croix-Mouton is dark, juicy and absolutely impeccable. Dark red cherry, plum, spices and new leather f ...Read More »

2014 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "Very aromatic and chalky on the nose with blackberries and blackcurrants. Licorice, too. Full to medium body, savory and chewy tannins, yet this always remains polished with a long and pretty finish. Drink in 2020, but hard not to drink now." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Barde-Haut has turned out beautifully. Dark cherry, mocha, spice, leather and tobacco flesh out in the glass. Effortless, supple and nicely layered, the 2014 hits all the right notes. The midweight style of the year comes through very nicely in this classy, polished Saint-Émilion.

2014 Deyrem Valentin, Margaux

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Here is a fresh wine that brings out the elegant side of Margaux. It is fruity, with attractive notes of black currant and lively, crisp acidity. (RV)" (4/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Deyrem Valentin has a lifted raspberry coulis, strawberry and violet-scented bouquet that feels just a little pinched at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly drier tannin than I expected, a Margaux that is molded in a "Classic" style, austere compared to its peers but with the body and density to suggest that it will age nicely over the next decade.

2009 de Chantegrive Rouge, Graves

92 points James Suckling: "A solid red with ripe plum, cherry and vanilla character. Full and savory with round and ripe tannins and a long, intense finish. Approachable, but better in 2015." (7/2012) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Bright herbaceous fruit, lots of freshness, lively citrus character. The wine is light, vivid, finally deliciously crisp. (RV)" (8/2010) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is another 'best ever' performance.

2009 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Haut couture becomes a wine! This dense purple wine has the tell-tale notes of flowers and pencil shavings, and its broad aromatics are intense and totally captivating. Powerful, rich, and full, but less tannic than the 2005 and more opulent, this is a dazzling Branaire to drink between 2017-2035. (RP)" (2/2012) 95 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous aromas of dark berries and wet earth, with hints of graphite. Full body, with juicy, chewy tannins and a long rich, fruity, and succulent finish. Best ever from here. Try in 2019." (2/2012) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Very supple wine, with great ric ...Read More »

2012 Cambon la Pelouse, Haut-Médoc

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Big and powerful, this is a concentrated and complex wine. Blackberry fruit flavors are strongly based on a tannin structure that is lightly sustained by the wood aging. Merlot dominates the blend, giving a sheen to its richness. Drink from 2018." (5/2015) 90 points James Suckling: "Lots of blackcurrant, cherry and strawberry character to this red on the nose, before giving way to a full body, refined tannins, bright acidity and a long finish. Better in 2017." (2/2015) 90 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cambon La Pelouse is absolutely gorgeous. Far from an easygoing 2012, the Cambon La Pelous ...Read More »

Really beautiful. Best ever from here. Best after 2018." (2/2012) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Very structured wine, with black currant fruit and dense acidity.
