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." (4/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Siran is a blend of 55% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot picked between 17 September to 12 October. 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. It veers to more red fruit here, wild strawberry and later cassis. The palate is smooth and sensual on the ...Read More »

2012 Peyrabon, Haut-Médoc

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is made from property owned by the Bernard family of Domaine de Chevalier in Pessac-Léognan. It's a finely-made wine with great acidity and swathes of blackberry fruits. Well balanced and likely to age. (RV)" (4/2013) Wine Spectator: "Light loam and charcoal shadings line a core of plum skin and macerated blackberry fruit. A loamy edge lends a slightly chewy twinge to the finish. This has put on a bit of weight since the barrel tasting. (JM, Web-2015)"

2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This large estate of 131 acres has been run brilliantly by a Belgian family, the Bonnies since their acquisition a number of years ago. The quality of the white and red have soared to exceptional heights, and this is certainly still one of the more realistically priced wines of Pessac-Lèognan and classified crus. The 2012 is a beauty, with a dense ruby/purple color, a fabulously plush, opulent texture and medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, spicy earth and blueberry. Quite rich, yet light on its feet, this is an absolutely textbook Pessac-Lèognan, w ...Read More »

2014 d'Yquem, Sauternes(375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Apricot tones with lively acidity give this rich wine a vein of freshness. Pear and white peach notes offer weight, while a lime backbone brings levity. There is a richness from the botrytis that is lifted by this wines delicious freshness." (4/2015) 96-99 points Wine Spectator: "This is beguiling, with acacia, jasmine and honeysuckle notes leading the way, followed by refined peach, tangerine and yellow apple fruit flavors.

The Capbern-Gasqueton 2009 has a very precise bouquet with ample red fruits: wild strawberry and raspberry with subtle earth and liquorice notes underneath and beginning to rise to the surface with each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with good fruit concentration, slightly chalky tannins at this stage, good tension and mineralite coming through towards the finish with blacker fruits, one again with a hint of liquorice.

The wine is full and hugely fruity, but it still manages a good Bordeaux sense of proportion." (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.

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.

2014 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Apricot tones with lively acidity give this rich wine a vein of freshness. Pear and white peach notes offer weight, while a lime backbone brings levity. There is a richness from the botrytis that is lifted by this wines delicious freshness." (4/2015) 96-99 points Wine Spectator: "This is beguiling, with acacia, jasmine and honeysuckle notes leading the way, followed by refined peach, tangerine and yellow apple fruit flavors. Very long, with a lemon chiffon note lingering delicately." (5/2015) 97-98 points James Suckling: "A crazy combination of botrytis, dried fruits and freshness. It's not the sweetne ...Read More »

2013 Carbonnieux Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

93-94 points James Suckling: "A very tangy and bright white with intense white peach, grapefruit and mineral character. Full body, crisp acidity. Gorgeous. One of the best Carbonnieux ever." (4/2014) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample.* A rich and rounded wine, this shines with pineapple and citrus flavors. It is full-bodied and likely to age well, with a mineral texture." (4/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This has lots of energy, with enticing thyme and tarragon notes flecking the core of lemon zest, white peach, tangerine and straw flavors.

2015 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "This is the greatest red ever produced here, even better than the great wines of the 1950s and 1960s. Full body yet tight and reserved. Superbly refined tannins. Yet rich and flamboyant. Fruity yet salty and minerally. Electric finish. Stone and chalk undertones. A wonder of a young wine." (3/2016) 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Canon is going to be a benchmark for this historic estate. A blend of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, it was cropped at 42 hl/ha between 14-25 September and 30 September until 2 October respectively. The alcohol level is an average 14.5% with a pH 3. ...Read More »

2012 Pédesclaux, Pauillac

91 points James Suckling: "This shows much more clarity than the 2011. Aromas of currants, lead pencil and flowers. Blueberries, too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and beautiful fruit. This is a wine that shows finesse and structure for the vintage. Very polished and well made. Try in 2018." (3/2015) 91 points Vinous: "The 2012 Pédesclaux has been superb on both occasions I have tasted it recently. One of the real sleepers of the vintage, the 2012 is endowed with terrific depth and tons of personality. Dark cherry, raspberry, tobacco and wild flowers add multiple shades of dimension. This is a superb ...Read More »

2012 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "This is amazing for the second wine with incredible white truffle, stone and currant character. Purity of fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, silky and refined. Fantastic length. Better in 2018 but almost impossible to resist now. Incredible." (2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another brilliant example from administrator Thomas Duroux and his team, the intense second wine, Palmer’s 2012 Alter Ego (51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot), offers up plenty of blackberry and crème de cassis notes along with some spring flowers, licorice and subtle background oak.

2010 Clarendelle Rouge, Grand Vin de Bordeaux

90 points James Suckling: "Cranberries, graphite and strawberries. Sweet and charming on the palate with medium-full body and pure red fruit. Fine silky tannins and vibrant acidity with good length. Yummy Bordeaux for drinking or holding." (3/2013) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine, which is a blend of the three basic varietals planted in Bordeaux – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc – is a major sleeper of the vintage and far exceeded my expectations, and that, of course, is all good news. Lots of red and black currant fruit, licorice, spice and soft tannins have resulted in a silky, opulently ...Read More »

2010 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

92 points James Suckling: "Fruit-forward aromas turn to spices and warm stones. Full body, with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Really delicious young wine. Hard not to drink now, but better in 2016." (2/2013) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Château Brown continues its impressive push to quality with this fine 2010. It brings demonstrates the structure of the year with its firm, youthful tannins. But it also shows plentiful black-currant flavor, layered with acidity. Classic and serious, this is a wine for aging." (2/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Shows good range, with red and black currant fruit playing off each other ...Read More »

2015 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Vinous: "A dazzling, towering wine, the 2015 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has put on considerable weight in just the last few months. Today, the 2015 is vivid and intense, with a huge backbone of tannin and marvelous complexity. In 2015, the Cabernet Sauvignon is pushed higher as the Merlot was less consistent in its ripening. Graphite, charcoal, tobacco, crème de cassis and new leather are some of the signatures in what is shaping up to be a super-classic Pichon-Lalande. Simply put, the 2015 is one of the wines of the vintage. Tasted four times. (AG) ...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 »

2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (OWC)
Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (OWC - 94JS, 94RP, 92WE, 91WS, 90ST) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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 sleeper of the vintage and even better than I thought from barrel. With its 2010, this classified growth located in the southern end of the Medoc may well have m

2014 Les Charmes Godard Blanc, Côtes de Francs

90 points Vinous: "The just-bottled 2014 Les Charmes-Godard is vibrant and beautifully layered in the glass. Pear, brioche, peach and smoke meld together in a highly expressive, textured Sauvignon/Sémillon blend that captures the combination of richness and lively acidity that make this vintage so attractive for whites. Winemaker David Suire favors larger 500-liter barrels, which help to keep the flavors bright as there is less exchange with oxygen than there is with standard size barriques. Once again, Les Charmes-Godard is one of the vintage's under the radar jewels. The ...Read More »

2012 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. With so much spicy fruit, intensely ripe blackberry flavors and solid tannins, all the elements of excellence are here, and powered by a firm structure. This wine has weight and a fine Cabernet concentration. (RV)" (4/2013) 93 points James Suckling: "This is very muscular with blackcurrant, blueberry and mineral character. Full and tight now but this shows a serious backbone of tannins and length. Try in 2018." (2/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Well-built, with a charcoal frame that melds nicely with steeped currant, blackberry paste and dark plum fruit flavors.

2012 du Glana, St-Julien

90 points James Suckling: "Fine and silky with pretty aromas and flavors of currants and stones. Medium body, dense fruit and fine tannins. Racy finish. Better in 2016." (2/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Features a smoldering charcoal edge, with focused plum, cassis and bitter cherry fruit forming the core. Sleek, with iron and loam notes underscoring the finish. Shows solid length and drive, and should age nicely. Best from 2017 through 2025. 8,333 cases made. (JM)" (3/2015)
