2014 Montrose, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Montrose 2014 is a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot that represents 47% of the total production. It was picked from mid-September via five or six tries through the vineyard. The aromatics represent a clear step in quality from the second wine, attired with far more precision and focus, much more purity with scents of blackberry, boysenberry and blue fruit, now with touches of violet and vanilla. It is beautifully defined and actually, at least at this juncture, closely aligned with Cos d’Estou ...Read More »

2015 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Wow. Real Cantemerle with stupendous power and depth. Mineral, stone and violet character. Full and structure. It starts slowly and then goes on for minutes. Perhaps best ever?" (5/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "With structured tannins and red berry notes, this is already showing an elegant structure. It is the fruit that sings here, gently supported by the fine, dusty tannins. (RV)" (4/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cantemerle is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot.

2015 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Extremely firm and silky. Dark berry, violet, salt and mineral. Full body. Energy, vibrant and verve. Layered and compressed. 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. It has an intense nose, perhaps slightly on the alcoholic side due to the Merlot (14.8%). The palate is more controlled and refined. There is still some new oak to be absorbed, but the tannins s ...Read More »

2014 Figeac, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Cabernet Sauvignon in this wine always gives it a distinctive, smoky profile. It also offers juicy acidity and black currant flavors that lie over a fine, dusty layer of tannins. The wine is so elegant and poised, with both structure and freshness." (4/2015) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and tight, with layers of well-focused boysenberry, cherry and cassis fruit, backed by a long, iron-edged finish. There's a whiff of tobacco in the background, too. Seriously grounded in terroir, this may take some time to unwind fully.

2014 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Léoville Poyferré is impressive. A big, broad-shouldered St. Julien, the 2014 blossoms in the glass with superb depth and richness. Dark red cherry, plum, spice, menthol, crushed flowers, herbs and leather are some of the notes that burst onto the palate in an energetic, tightly wound Poyferré. The 2014 finishes with notable depth and huge, explosive intensity, all of which suggest it will require considerable cellaring. This is without question one of the stars of the vintage.

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. 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 »

2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Grand Puy Lacoste 2014 is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot between 25 September and 9 October at 33 hectoliter per hectare. The aromatics are not as immediate as the Haut-Batailley and demand more coaxing from the glass, but that comes with the territory. It unfurls with each swirl, black fruits at first, then GPL’s trademark, graphite and gravel scents storm into the room. Leaving the glass aside for 10 minutes there is a distant tang of shucked oyster shells. The palate is understated on the entry. This is not a powerhouse G ...Read More »

2014 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Vinous: "Exuberant and explosive, the 2014 Canon La Gaffelière is quite forward in style, yet all the elements seem to come together. An open, exotic bouquet melds into sweet red cherries, plums, spices and dried rose petals. The high percentage of Cabernet Franc gives the wine considerable aromatic lift and tons of personality. Floral and savory Franc notes abound on the super, long finish. The 2014 is 55% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)" (4/2015) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "A strong ganache element flows along with the dark currant and blackberry flavors. A charco ...Read More »

2014 d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon (Pre-Arrival)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château d'Aiguilhe 2014 is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc picked between 3 and 13 October, vatted for 30 days and aged in 30% new oak barrels. It has an immediately pleasurable nose that should remain intact by the time of bottling: bundles of juicy mulberry and strawberry fruit with a smear of vanilla filling in any gaps. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a touch of citric fruit lending tension, impressive depth with a nicely poised, yet elegant finish. There will be better 2014s in Bordeaux but few with the QPR of this lit ...Read More »

It has all the elements in balance—rich tannins, intense black fruits and fragrant acidity—to suggest successful long-term aging." (4/2015) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Gloria is ample, rich and beautifully resonant, with more than enough fruit to fill out its broad-shouldered frame. Red currant, blood orange, smoke, white pepper and iron build to the deeply satisfying finish. The combination of extroverted fruit, tannin and saline-inflected minerality dazzles from the very first taste. What a gorgeous wine this is. (AG) ...Read More »

2015 Lynch-Bages Blanc, Bordeaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A bright and flavorful white with sliced apple, pear and mango follow through to a full body, crisp acidity and lively finish. Lots of white peaches too." (4/2016) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "There's terrific zing and precision here, with tangerine and white peach notes allied to a steely spine and leading to a long fleur de sel finish. Should unwind slowly and will likely do well in the cellar. (JM, Web-2016)" 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Blanc de Lynch Bages, 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 33% Semillon and 17% Muscadelle, matured in 45% new oak.

(RV)" (4/2015) 96-97 points James Suckling: "The aromas to this wine are enchanting with blackberries, dried flowers, blueberries, citrus and stones. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and bright acidity. Citrus skin undertones. Very, very long. Structured. This is 13.8 alcohol meaning the Cabernet was incredibly ripe for the vintage. Yet it remains ...Read More »

(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. Hints of talc and fennel skitter in the background. Seriously long and still a touch youthful on the finish, this is one for the cellar. Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Sémillon.

It was picked from 22 September until 6 October for the Merlot and three days later for the Cabernet Franc, matured in around 80% new oak.

1996 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 exhibits a dark plum/ruby/purple color that is just beginning to lighten at the edge, surprisingly velvety tannins and a classic Pauillac bouquet of lead pencil shavings, cedarwood, black currants, sweet cherries and spice box. This medium to full-bodied, elegant, savory, broad wine is still five years away from full maturity. It should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years. (RP)" (8/2011) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This is much more open than the 1995. Offers aromas and flavors of currant, mint and spices. Full-bodied, soft and velvety, with a fruit finish.

Very good definition. The palate is medium-bodied, sturdy tannins, a little pepper again on the entry with very good structure on the mid-palate.

(RV)" (3/2015) 91-94 points Vinous: "A wine of total finesse, the 2014 Prieuré-Lichine boasts striking purity in its fruit. The flavors are bright and floral throughout, with plenty of red currant, cherry and raspberry. There is virtually no sensation of tannin.

Black cherries, plums, smoke, tobacco and incense meld together in an ample, voluptuous wine built on pure texture.

The blend is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot. (AG)" (4/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample.

Aged in 30% new oak from several cooperages, it veers towards fleshy red berry fruit on the nose with hints of dried herbs and sous-bois lending personality, something to talk about.

The finish sails on and on, coating the palate with a porcelain feel, while an echo of bitter almond hangs effortlessly, like a lace curtain hanging on an endless breeze. Stunning.

The flavors are distinctly sepia-toned in a muscular, powerful Pavie Macquin that will drink well for several decades. Savory herbs, crushed flowers, mint and smoke blossom on the dense, explosive finish. The blend is 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.

1981 Magdelaine, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet core with dark brick rim. A stupendous nose: briary, earth with a hint of mint chocolates. Very fresh and defined. The palate does not quite match the nose but is remarkably fresh with a certain "cool" character deriving from the fresh, almost citrus acidity and great definition. Quite tannic, the texture is more akin to a Left Bank wine. Moderate concentration. Some dryness on the finish. Otherwise a superb claret that is perfect as an accompaniment to food. Then at Paul Rhodes tasting in Oct-04: a sweet, earthy nose this time with more plum ...Read More »

2006 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (1.5L)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Year after year, Lynch-Bages is able to produce sumptuous wines, typically rich, powerful and structured.

1998 Rauzan-Segla, Margaux

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Penetrating, minerally aromas of raspberry, redcurrant and cedary oak. Denser and more structured than the '99; with its firmer acidity, this is more classic claret. Very rich, sharply delineated wine that will require at least seven or eight years of bottle aging. (ST)" (5/2001) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Dark color, with a ripe blackberry character and hints of minerals. Medium- to full-bodied, with lovely, integrated tannins and velvety, round mouthfeel. Lovely now. (JS, Web-2009)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot, this classic, austerely-styled Medoc exhi ...Read More »

2014 d'Yquem, Sauternes(1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

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 »

100 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that makes you dream. The nose is packed with flowers, sweet tobacco, iodine, spices, raspberries, blackberries, and great freshness. The texture is perfection, pure silk and the fruit is wonderfully complex and subtle. Currants, fresh mushrooms, flowers, and stones fill the mouth and make way to a delightful finish. Please leave this alone until 2020." (4/2011) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The mineral-laced 2005 Haut Brion (56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc) is exquisite.
