2016 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "The finish is something else here. This is a wine that’s so powerful and tannic yet at the same time so polished and superb on the finish. Full-bodied, beautifully crafted and precise. This is a wine that really grabs your attention. The agility and power are more than impressive. Wow is the word." (4/2017) 96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* This perfumed wine is stylish and elegant. It is all about the magnificent and sophisticated fruit.

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 »

2016 Les Pagodes de Cos, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival) New!
2016 Les Pagodes de Cos, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. The tannins are really deceptive in this wine. It is sumptuous and elegant at the same time. The black currant fruit and acidity are a foil for the powerful tannic structure. Balanced and rich in fruit, it is ready for some serious, but not too long, aging. (RV)" (4/2017) 93-94 points James Suckling: "The brightness and focus to this second wine of Cos are certainly impressive. You can see the quality. Full body, a tight and focused palate and beautiful fruit and density. Ultra-fine tannins. Gorgeous. Sophisticated." (4/2017)

2016 Beaumont, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine comes from an estate that is showing great improvement, the wine showing power and concentration. Brimming with delicious black fruits, it will age well and is likely to be ready after 2025. (RV)" (4/2017) 91-92 points James Suckling: "A juicy and pretty wine with berry and chocolate character, a medium body and a clean finish. Clearly better than the 2015." (4/2017)

2014 d'Armailhac, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "Very minerally, silky and refined with a full body, firm tannins and currants, stones and citrus. Racy and fine. This has a little more Merlot in the blend but is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon as always. One of the best Armailhacs in a long time." (3/2015) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2014 d'Armailhac is absolutely delicious. Dark red cherry, plum, pomegranate, spice and floral notes are bold and exuberant in the glass. This is an especially extroverted, silky d'Armailhac long on class, finesse and resonance. All the elements are in the right place. Ripe, silky tannins add to an overa ...Read More » 



2014 Figeac, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* The classic blend for Figeac with its 32% of Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Cabernet Franc gives a beautifully dense wine with great tannins. The wine is perfumed while the complex tannins are finely cushioned by the generous black fruits and acidity. It is a wine for long-term aging. Drink from 2026. (RV)" (4/2017) 96 points James Suckling: "The aromas of blackcurrants and fresh forest floor are evocative. Oyster shells and stones. Turns to blackcurrants. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins that are polished and coat your mouth. The palate is ever dense a ...Read More » 



2014 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "The purity and clarity to the nose of this wine are really exceptional with crushed berries, cherries and currants. Fruit and density are so impressive, yet this is so linear on the center palate, which gives it direction and focus. Fabulous." (2/2017) 96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pavie Macquin is just as sensual from bottle as it was from barrel. Silky, gracious and expressive, the 2014 has it all. Black cherry, plum, smoke, mocha and a host of dark-toned flavors all blossom in the glass. The 2014 offers a striking combination of power and finesse, with plenty of power to bu ...Read More »

(4/2017) 91 points Decanter: "From the Bignon-Cordier family, this is a sleek, sexy Médoc with good chewy tannins and a lovely rich texture to the blackberry fruit. It has a serious edge, showing some menthol notes on the finish and a feeling of freshness that accompanies the entire experience beginning to end. Good persistency.

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) 91 points Decanter: "This is an ambitious take on 2016, pushing the vintage but successfully so, going for a cerebral 2010 feel rather than the generosity of 2009. Classic liquorice and slate, tight cassis fruits and an extremely well paced delivery of fresh tight tannins lead into a gorgeous, lifted juicy fruit finish. From a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. I like this a lot. (JA)" (4/2017)

2014 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "If you want to know what St.-Estèphe smells like, this is it. Aromas of spices, black truffles, forest floor, dried strawberries and tar. It’s full-bodied yet pinpointed on the palate with fabulous density and richness. It’s opulent but in a reserved and checked way. This needs at least five or six years to come around, but it’s already fantastic. What harmony and structure. Try in 2022 if you can keep your hands off it!"

It goes on for minutes. Speechless. Better and cleaner than the great 1990. Try in 2022." (2/2012) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A colossal effort, the 2009 Montrose represents a hypothetical blend of the monumental duo of 1989 and 1990 combined with the phenomenal 2003...the overall impression is one of massive blackberry, black currant and mulberry fruit intermixed with forest floor, damp earth, crushed rocks and a hint of ...Read More »

Full-bodied, with a mind-blowing texture of seamless tannins that coat every millimeter of the palate. Goes on and on, with licorice, currant and flowers. Time will tell if it's better than the 2000. Best after 2017. (JS)" (3/2008) 98 points Vinous: "A wine for the ages, the 2005 Léoville Las Cases is slow to come out of the gate, but its beauty and pedigree are evident.

A dense center palate. Ultra-round tannins. Everything in the right balance. Wonderful to taste but better to drink in 2022." (2/2017) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Ducru Beaucaillou showed extremely well when I tasted it with Bruno Borie during en primeur.

2014 Meyney, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "Full body, dense and silky with a beautiful dark currant and berry character. Long and silky. Very fine. Best Meyney in years!" (3/2015) 90-93 points Vinous: "A deep, powerful wine, the 2014 Meyney shows the more virile, imposing side of the vintage. Black cherries, plums, game, smoke, tobacco and menthol are all supported by a spine of firm tannin that gives the wine its imposing structure. This fruit did not come in until October 30, very late, even by the standards of the year. The style is decidedly virile, with more than enough pure depth and underlying structure to develo ...Read More » 



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

There is a richness from the botrytis that is lifted by this wines delicious freshness." (4/2015) 98 points James Suckling: "Very subtle Yquem on the nose with dried pineapple, lemons, green apples and hints of botrytis.

2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

There’s wet earth, too, but on the palate it’s bursting with ripe yet subtle flavors. Very long and complex finish that goes on and on." (2/2017) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*** Cellar Selection *** This is a finely structured wine with dark tannins and intense black fruits.

Ample and resonant on the palate, with striking depth, the 2014 possesses exceptional balance and class. Hints of smoke, tobacco and licorice infuse the deep, creamy finish. (AG)" (2/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "A very well-made, modern wine with ripe cherry and cassis notes but rather discrete oak.

This was the best example of the 2005 that I have tasted, perhaps a wine that is going to prove that, the longer wine lovers can resist temptation. It is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 3.5% Cabernet Franc and .5% Petit Verdot picked between 23 September and 9 October. The bouquet is extremely detailed, displaying more red berry fruit compared to the 2010 Montrose that leans towards black.

Large-scale, ample and totally flamboyant in style, the 2014 is going to need time to fully come together, but it is striking even today. (AG)" (2/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "The dark, savory, earthy and plum aromas plus the serious tannins here give this wine a lot of character, but it really needs a couple of years to open up.

Better in 2020."

Enticing scents of violet, lavender, mint and chalk add to the wine's chiseled personality. The 2014 has gained considerable depth, volume and intensity since I tasted it from barrel as a young wine, but without losing its intensely mineral, understated personality.

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

Dark and pliant on the palate, with striking nuance, it presents a striking interplay of juicy Merlot fruit and lifted, Cabernet Franc-inflected aromatics. Silky tannins add to the wine's exceptional feel and precision. The blend is 80 % Merlot and 20 % Cabernet Franc. The 2014 spent 25-30 days on the skins, while malolactic fermentation took place partly in tank and partly in barrique.

The vines average 45+ years of age, and the blend contains no Cabernet Sauvignon and much less Cabernet Franc than Pavie. Yields are similar for the two estates, but Pavie Decesse exhibits more espresso, chocolate, and caramelized Merlot-like flavors, and reveals a certain freshness and precision because of its exquisite limestone-based terroir.

Its crushed, chalky rock minerality, massive body, and high tannin make for a wine to forget for another decade.

(4/2015) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. From an up and coming property in Pauillac, this wine shows firm tannins and lively acidity on the palate, with a fruit kick on the finish. (RV)" (4/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pédesclaux has a tightly wound bouquet with redcurrant and crushed strawberry fruit, cedar and cigar box aromas filtering through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, plenty of black fruit laced ...Read More »

2005 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (3L) 1-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "Very classy with plenty of raspberry, currant, and licorice character. This is dense and compacted on the palate. Leave it for at least two or three years from now." (4/2012) 94 points Vinous: "Open-knit yet deep and powerful, the 2005 Les Forts de Latour is striking today. The pedigree of the vintage comes through in spades. Expressive, perfumed aromatics meld into a core of supple, open-knit fruit in a mid-weight, impeccably balanced Forts de Latour. Hints of red fruit, iron, smoke and tobacco add lovely shades of nuance. Latour's President Frédéric Engerer adds that that ...Read More »

2009 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion 12-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A complex set of aromas ranging from coffee to forest floor, herbs, licorice, blackberries, cassis and cherries all seem to jump from the glass, and then are joined by a hint of charcoal as well camphor. This is an impressive, full-bodied, dense, concentrated wine that is more up-front and approachable than the 2005 was at a similar stage, but it is remarkably expressive, full-bodied, dense and capable of lasting 20-25 years. Showing better from bottle than it did from barrel, this wine comes very close to equaling the prodigious 2005 that was produced b ...Read More »

2014 Ormes de Pez, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "Earthy and savory, this starts rich and mellow then slowly turns in the stern direction. A lot of personality and character, and power for long ageing." (2/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Ormes des Pez 2014 is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot picked from 24 September with the young Merlot and finishing around 12 October. It was cropped at 32 hectoliter per hectare. Small red cherries and kirsch form the bouquet, quite forward and perfumed with touches of lavender emerging with continued aeration. The palate is medium-b ...Read More »

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

97 points James Suckling: "This red shows lots of redcurrants and fresh flowers on the nose. It’s full-bodied with juicy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to resolve some of the tannins. Beautiful Cabernet character, but already a joy to taste." (2/2017) 95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Grand Puy Lacoste is superb. Dark, dense and inviting, the 2014 possesses remarkable depth and richness. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco all develop in the glass, but it is the overall feel that is most impressive. Silky, polished tannins nicely balance the wine's overt personal ...Read More »

2010 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A magnificently solid wine, initially severe. At this young stage, the tannins dominate in a wine that also reveals a full fruit salad bowl of black fruits. Very dense, concentrated, this is a wine that’s even better than the legendary 2005. The structure tells of its extraordinary aging potential: don’t even attempt to drink this for 10 years. (RV)" (2/2013) 97 points James Suckling: "Aromas of pure blackberries and violets follow through to a full body, with super velvety tannins and a delicious balance of sweet fruit, light vanilla and nuts. Really savory and b ...Read More » 



2014 Reserve de la Comtesse de Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Réserve de la Comtesse 2014 is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Merlot that comes from a selection made in the winery through blind tastings, including 6% vin de presse. It has a tightly-wound, graphite-scented bouquet that would actually suggest a higher proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon then there actually is. The palate is medium-bodied with edgy, chalky tannin on the entry with plenty of dark berry fruit. There is an insistent grip on the finish that does not offer enormous persistence, but you have the sense of coiled-up energy and so it ...Read More »

2014 du Tertre, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made by the same team as Château Giscours, this estate continues to impress with its quality. The wine is certainly structured but it also has lush layers of ripe fruit. Blueberry and black-currant fruitiness gives the wine richness and potential. Drink from 2023. (RV)" (2/2017) 93 points James Suckling: "A little bit shy on the nose, but the balance of good concentration and powdery tannins creates a creamy impression that extends through the long finish — one that’s already smooth enough to give a lot of pleasure. Try drinking in 2020." (2/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château du Tertre 2014 is a blend ...Read More »

2014 Cantenac Brown, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "The impressive Victorian baronial chateau of Cantenac Brown is one of the landmarks of Margaux. The wine is getting better each vintage. This is ripe and generous, full of freshly minted tannins and layers of wood over the ripe berry fruit. Drink this wine from 2024. (RV)" (2/2017) 93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of chocolate, vanilla and currants follow through to a full body, tight tannins and a reserved finish. Needs time to open. Better in 2021." (2/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cantenac Brown has a backward nose at first, a mixture of red and black fruit, cedar and tobacco, an attractive past ...Read More »

2014 Beychevelle, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "A very classical St. Julien that’s got good concentration and real elegance, too. Great black fruits on the nose with subtle oak, and the richness and dry tannins are balanced out beautifully. You could drink it now, but this will age beautifully." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Beychevelle is dark, ample and yet also quite nuanced. Blue and purplish stone fruits, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice notes abound in this super-expressive Saint-Julien. There is lovely freshness and vivacity to the flavors, but this is a pretty intense, succulent style. (AG)" (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Thi ...Read More »
