2017 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The final blend of the 2017 Cos d'Estournel is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Very deep purple-black in color, it offers up intense scents of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and black cherries with touches of incense, spice cake, star anise and plum preserves plus a perfumed hint of potpourri. The palate is medium-bodied with very firm yet wonderfully ripe, "sweet", fine-grained tannins at just 13% alcohol—something of a miracle in our modern times. The palate sports fantastic freshness and tons of energy e ...Read More »

2017 Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Vinous: "The 2017 Smith Haut Lafitte is easily one of the highlights of the vintage. Dense, unctuous and impeccably balanced, the 2017 exudes depth from start to finish. Charcoal embers, graphite, menthol, licorice and sage add myriad shades of nuance to the plush, unctuous dark raspberry jam fruit. This is a super impressive showing from Smith Haut Lafitte.

2017 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The saturated purple-colored 2017 Pichon-Longueville Baron will compete with the best of the best in 2017. Possessing full-bodied notes of ripe blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with background graphite and oak, it hits the palate with beautiful purity of fruit, building tannin, and a great, great finish. Its oak is brilliantly integrated, it has a stacked mid-palate, and again, just incredible purity of fruit. It has the fruit/texture to drink nicely in its youth yet deserves 4-6 years and will keep for two decades or more. The 2017 is 79% Cabernet ...Read More »

(JM)" (4/2018) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine revels in its soft black fruit flavors. Supported by structured tannins that are already well integrated, it shows touches of wood and spice at the end. This is going to be a generous, fruity wine from 2023.

Long and persistent." (4/2018) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm structure supports the luscious fruit flavors—this is a richly generous wine. Finely integrated tannins are layered with ripe black currant notes. As often with this biodynamic estate, the purity of the fruit is outstanding and concentrated.

Long finish." (4/2018) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dry tannins and juicy fruit give this wine its structure while also bringing out the freshness of the vintage.

Deep purple-black in color, the nose is a little closed at first, but with coaxing, it opens to reveal remarkable earth and exotic spice notes of crushed rocks, black truffles, star anise, cassia and fenugreek over a core of crème de cassis, blackberry preserves, violets and blueberry pie with touches of cigar box, charcuterie and black soil.

2017 Siran, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This producer needs to be careful with the wood aging lest it smother the fruit. However, the good news is that the fruit is there, as well as fine, firm tannins. Together, they give this juicy wine great aging potential. (RV)" (4/2018) 90-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Château Siran should certainly be an outstanding wine. Giving up lots of black fruits, charcoal, and graphite notes, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, and with solid ripeness and depth. It’s an impressive effort from Margaux."

Very pure and well structured, this will be a great wine for aging. (RV)" (4/2018) 94-95 points James Suckling: "This is very delicate on the attack but it grows on the palate with firm and silky tannins that turn lightly chewy. Builds consistently. Compacted and tight." (4/2018) 94 points Decanter: "This is rich, with fresh blueberry and cassis notes.

2015 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "One of the finest Pauillacs of 2015, Lynch-Bages is rich, racy and voluptuous. A rush of dark red and purplish stone fruit, mint, new leather, spice and blood orange give the 2015 a very decidedly exotic character that is impossible to miss. Raspberry jam, mocha, new leather and expressive floral notes appear with time in the glass, rounding things out nicely.

2017 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I was able to taste the 2017 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc on three separate occasions and it never failed to impress. It should match, if not exceed, the 2015. Gorgeous notes of lemon curd, mint, citrus, white peach, and salty minerality all emerge from this medium to full-bodied white. It doesn’t have the sheer scale or sexiness of a sunnier year, yet its purity is off the charts, it has riveting acidity, and a great, great finish. The blend is currently 70% Sauvignon and 30% Sémillon, and it will spend 16 months on lees in 35% new French oak. Don’t miss ...Read More »

Creme de cassis, blackberry jam, graphite, smoke, leather and incense, along with the wine's muscular tannins, convey an impression of brooding intensity. The 2015 has been nothing short of sensational on the two occasions I have tasted it so far. Readers should be prepared to be patient. Don't miss it!

2015 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "The 2015 Brane-Cantenac is powerful, structured and explosive in feel. A deep, resonant wine, the 2015 boasts off the charts ripeness allied to formidable structure and tannic heft. I imagine the 2015 is going to need a number of years to become approachable and more than that to be at its best. The dark stone fruit, smoke, tobacco, spice and leather flavors pack a huge punch, but it is the wine's balance that places it among the elite on the Left Bank in 2015. Brane-Cantenac is a total pleasure bomb. I can't wait to taste it with a little bottle age. (A ...Read More »

Its structure and smoky character meld with rich black fruits and spice flavors; this is a wine for aging. Drink from 2024. (RV)" (4/2018) 93 points Decanter: "A carefully extracted, well constructed palate delivers a sense of finesse and freshness.

2017 Blanc de Lynch Bages, Bordeaux (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Decanter: "Utterly gorgeous freshness and zip, with intensity of flavour. It has a little more Sémillon than usual, due to frost affect the Sauvignon Blanc, which seems to mean the aromatics of the Muscadelle are a little more prominent than a classic Lynch Bages Blanc, adding a white flower honeysuckle lift. It is beautiful and works within the cascade of flavours, although I miss their more classic blend - they probably do too, to be fair. Already bottled. 45% new oak.

92-95 points Vinous: "A rich, unctuous wine, the 2017 Barde-Haut is endowed with magnificent concentration and richness. Inky black fruit, chocolate, menthol, licorice and spice infuse this spectacularly rich, voluptuous Saint-Émilion. The 2017 saw 4-5 days on cold soak about four weeks on the skins, with no SO2 during fermentation. Most of the wine is aging in 300L barrels, which is a bit larger than the norm in Bordeaux. (AG)" (5/2018) 92-94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The deep, inky-colored 2017 Barde-Haut is a seriously good 2017 from Hélène Garcin-Lévêque that offers tons of kirsch, ripe black cherries, an ...Read More »

2017 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "Dense and layered red with dark berry, volcanic ash and white pepper. Full-bodied, layered and chewy. Muscular." (4/2018) 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I tasted the 2017 Château Tour Saint Christophe on two sperate occasions and it never failed to impress. A rough blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 14.3% natural alcohol, it has a rocking sense of minerality to go with big, broad, expansive aromas and flavors. Blueberries, black raspberries, flowers, and violets characteristics, medium to full-bodied richness, fine tannin, and excellent purity all make this a terrific 2 ...Read More »

2017 Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Reminding me of the 2014, the 2017 Château Clinet is a beautiful, dense, concentrated wine that has terrific notes of blueberries, spring flowers, and chocolaty oak. It’s very much in the style of the vintage with its cool, perfumed aromatics and sensational purity of fruit, yet it also has richness and weight. It’s a brilliant Pomerol." (4/2018) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Alluring, offering fleshy layers of fig, boysenberry and plum compote notes lined with anise and roasted apple wood accents, this is nicely integrated already, with fresh acidity embedded throughout. (JM)" (4/2018) ...Read More »

2017 Beauséjour (Duffau), St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Of the three properties under the helm of Nicolas Thienpont, the 2017 Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse offers the most richness and depth. Blueberries, crème de cassis, graphite, violets, crushed rocks, and spring flowers notes all give way to a structured, vibrant, fresh, yet tannic red that's going to need 3-4 years of bottle age but might end up being one of the top wines of the vintage. Tasted twice. This beauty is made from 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc that was brought in between the 22nd of September and 2nd of October, with yields of 38 hectolite ...Read More »

2015 Kirwan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This rich wine is full of fruit and structured with layers of tannin. It’s also stylish and elegant, with a suave texture that is already attractive. Black fruits mix with the structure to give a wine that will age well. Drink from 2026. *Editors’ Choice* (RV)" (12/2017) 93 points Decanter: "This is an effortlessly elegant and classy Margaux. Real structure where the tannins hold without being intrusive, close to the 2015 in quality. They have new cellars here, so lots to look forward to over the next decade as they really begin to benefit from the extra precision. Extremely c ...Read More »

2015 Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "Some graphite and toasted spicy fruits, which create an impressive opening. Iodine and dark berries follow. The palate has a similarly spicy start, which builds waves of fine, ripe tannins that hold impressively fresh and deep. Try from 2022." (2/2018) 90 points Vinous: "One of the standouts of the vintage, the 2015 Sociando Mallet is all finesse. Light on its feet, gracious and super-expressive, the 2015 speaks to class above all else. The flavors are bright and beautifully lifted in this polished, sophisticated Haut-Médoc. Although a touch light, the 2015 is very pretty. T ...Read More »

2017 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Rieussec is a killer Sauternes that shows the fresh, chiseled style of the vintage while still packing awesome fruit. Huge notes of orange blossom, honeyed citrus, mints and exotic flowers flow to a full-bodied, viscous 2017 that has beautiful purity, a clean, perfectly balanced texture, integrated acidity and a great finish. It’s a rockstar effort." (4/2018) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Hugely rich, this wine has great intensity. Ripe mango and peach flavors boast a strong botrytis flavor, giving it full-bodied concentration. With its larger-than-life richness, it needs many ...Read More »

2017 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Vinous: "The 2017 Pape Clément is fabulous. One of the rare 2017s with a real sense of structure, Pape Clément possesses dazzling intensity from start to finish. A rush of dark cherry, plum, chocolate and grilled herb notes hits the palate as this majestic, towering wine shows off its personality. Time in the glass brings out a brighter and more floral set of flavors. The 2017 is the first vintage made with a portion of whole clusters, an inspiration Bernard Magrez takes from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, where he recently bought a small property. Quite simply, the 2017 P ...Read More »

2017 Lespault-Martillac Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is a beautiful white with grapefruit and green apples. Full and flavorful yet balanced and fresh. Should be a beauty." (4/2018) 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon that will spend nine months on lees in 35% new oak, the 2017 Château Lespault-Martillac Blanc offers a clean, pure bouquet of pineapple, white grapefruit, and subtle minerality. Medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, and impeccably balanced, it’s another terrific white from this vintage. Tasted twice." (4/2018) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the Lespault-Martillac 2017 Blanc simply sings of honeyed whi ...Read More »

2017 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) New!
2017 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon with 3.5% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Lafite Rothschild is a little shy on the nose to begin, opening out to scents of crushed blackcurrants, black cherries and warm black plums with touches of yeast extract, charcuterie, cigar box and fertile loam plus a hint of iron ore. POW—the paradoxically ethereal, medium-bodied palate hits you with vibrant, exhilarating black fruit and previously latent floral layers, supported with fantastic freshness and super fine-grained, pixelated tannin ...Read More »
