2015 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich, fruity and with great potential, this ripe wine is also dense with firm tannins. Its juicy fruits are a part of a package with the concentrated tannins and smoky wood flavors that allow for long aging. This is an impressive wine from one of the Margaux properties owned by the Lurton family. Drink from 2025. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2017) 95 points Decanter: "Lots to enjoy here - there is an immediate impact where the weight of the fruit drags you down before building you up slowly, giving layer upon layer of fresh, brambly fruits, mouthwatering minerality and charcoa ...Read More »

2015 Pavie, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

98-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Château Pavie is going to be a candidate for the wine of the vintage, both from the right and left banks, it’s that good. Made from 60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, this truly great wine sports an inky purple color and to-die-for notes of crème de cassis, toasted bread, liquid flowers, and a building, gravely, liquid rock-like minerality.

2016 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Vinous: "A deeply emotional, moving wine, the 2016 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is simply extraordinary. The tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit, while the 100% new oak is remarkably well integrated at this stage. Dark, powerful and brooding, the 2016 possesses remarkable polish for such a big wine. The purity of the flavors is simply captivating. Scents of graphite, smoke, leather, tobacco and menthol soar from the glass, enhancing a core of deep, plush, dark fruit. All the elements fuse together in a wine of nearly unparallel ...Read More »

2016 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "A structured young red with currant and berry character. Medium body, velvety tannins and a savory finish." (4/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Lanessan has a perfumed, quite floral bouquet with graphite tinged black fruit—fine delineation with impressive focus, even if it is not the most complex Haut-Medoc that I encountered in this vintage out of barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, well-judged acidity, plenty of black fruit with a harmonous, engaging and slightly tarry finish. This is a great Lanessan that should give 20 years of pleasure. This comes h ...Read More »

2016 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

98-100 points Decanter: "Cabernet Sauvignon makes up 75% of the main blend, with 14% of 80 year old Merlot and 11% of Cabernet Franc, and aged in 90% new oak. It is hard to think of a vintage when this is not a great wine, but in 2016 it is exceptional, comparable to the majestic 1996. It has all the intensity, richness and depth, but it lets the light in. The yield is fairly high at 40hl/ha, with 3.66pH balancing a tannin index of 82IPT. This is the highest ever at this property and yet the wine is elegant, gorgeous and juicy, with an endless array of black fruits and graphite. ...Read More »

2015 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This vintage was ideal for the rich style that this estate has made its own. This wine is full bodied and ripe with black-currant and dark berry fruits. The tannins fall into the cushioned wine with ease and richness. Of course, the wine should be aged, so wait until 2026. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "Brambly and attractive ripe blackberries and red-plum aromas with some floral accents, too. The palate has a very plush, polished and regal shape as tannins frame up a core of ripe black fruit. Succulent, impressive finish. Best from 2022."

2015 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Decanter: "Here, black fruits, bitter dark chocolate and inky liquorice abound. The texture is extremely impressive, really punching above the average St-Julien in this vintage. It is gorgeously withheld at the moment, but with so much promise of what lies ahead. It is subtle but hugely persistent on the palate. 100% new oak for 18 months.

This offers plenty. Drink or hold." (2/2018) 90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I tasted the 2015 Cap De Faugeres on three different occasions and it rated outstanding on two of the three showings. Offering lots of darker fruits, truffle, and leafy herbs aromas and flavors in a medium-bodied, rounded, forward and sexy style, it should impress for upwards of a decade.

Black currants, blueberries. It has hot and ripe tannins yet cool fruit." (4/2016) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "While this wine is rich, it has a classical demeanor, with fine tannins that support but never dominate the ripe black fruits. Full of juicy acidity, it offers black currants and some fine, firm tannins at the end.

The palate is extremely well balanced and very pure: citrus fruit infusing the honeyed botrytis, veins of white peach and quince, leading to a very precise and sustained finish that leaves you with a smile on your face...and the wine ain't even finished yet!

Co-proprietor Hélène Garçin-Léveque told me that for the first time, Clos l'Eglise was one of the first Pomerols to be picked since they felt that the grapes were fully ripe. So why wait? That clearly is vindicated by the bouquet with ebullient, ripe blackberry and wild strawberry fruit, almost Burgundy-like in terms of its purity.

Plush. A very serious wine from this estate. Best ever? We will see. Try in 2022." (2/2018) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a juicy, fruity wine that's supported by dark fruit tannins.
