2014 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "Very aromatic and chalky on the nose with blackberries and blackcurrants. Licorice, too. Full to medium body, savory and chewy tannins, yet this always remains polished with a long and pretty finish. Drink in 2020, but hard not to drink now." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Barde-Haut has turned out beautifully. Dark cherry, mocha, spice, leather and tobacco flesh out in the glass. Effortless, supple and nicely layered, the 2014 hits all the right notes. The midweight style of the year comes through very nicely in this classy, polished Saint-Émilion. Proprietor Hélène G ...Read More »

2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of crushed berries such as blackberries and blackcurrants, not to mention spices. Wet earth and cedar, too. Complex. Full-bodied, yet agile and complete. A dense center palate. Ultra-round tannins. Everything in the right balance. Wonderful to taste but better to drink in 2022." (2/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2014 is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot that was picked between 25 September and 15 October and matured in 100% new oak as usual.

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "I was deeply impressed with these wines from Domaine de Chevalier. The red has a slight upper hand in 2014, but both wines are distinctive and full of character. Olivier Bernard owns one of the crown jewels of Bordeaux, as these wines clearly make evident. The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier is a total knockout. Precise, brilliant and finely sculpted, the 2014 possesses superb intensity. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red berries, along with finessed but persistent tannins, give the wine its regal personality. The 2014 needs a number of years to shed some ...Read More »

2014 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Tight tannins mask the ripe fruit in a wine that is set for long-term aging, so there is a dry core that dominates at the moment. But not for long: the bold black fruits are insistent and are going to be delicious. (RV)" (4/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "So perfumed with a freshness and beauty that is amazing. Blackberries, black cherries and violets. Full-bodied yet so polished and velvety. Gorgeous finish. A beauty. Best ever in bottle from here?" (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Malartic-Lagravière is a gorgeous wine, but it is also flamboyant and exotic, especially in its fl ...Read More »

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 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!" (2/2017) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is an immensely dense wine that is going to be a classic. The dark tannins are still lined with wood ag ...Read More »

2014 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "I love the nose of blackberries, blueberries, flowers and citrus. Hints of stones and wet earth. Full body and ultra-fine tannins that are so long and seamless. Incredible length. A wine that you want to drink now." (2/2017) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a great wine. It has all the elements in place to produce a wine that will last for years: powerful fruit, rich tannins and a structure that is built to last. This is elegant, impressive and concentrated. Almost entirely Cabernet Sauvignon, the grape gives the wine its fruit and its tannins. (RV)" (4/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The ...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.

2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "A stunning wine for this vintage although it’s still a bit shy on the nose (more spice than fruit showing than now). 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. The estate, with its biodynamically grown fruit, has given an impressively pure wine, packed with tight serious tannins and a fine structure of black-plum skins and intense acidity.

(4/2015) 94 points James Suckling: "Super aromas of blackberries, minerals, roses and spices. Full body, firm tannins and a long and beautiful finish. Fantastic center palate. Like a tight ball of silky thread. Seamless. Try drinking in 2020." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Gloria is a bold, powerful wine.

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) 98 points James Suckling: "Very subtle Yquem on the nose with dried pineapple, lemons, green apples and hints of botrytis. The palate grabs you by the arms and shows you superb concentration of spices, dried fruit, phenolics and incredible energy. Nothing is like this from Sauternes this vintage!

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

95 points Vinous: "One of the wines of the vintage, the 2014 Canon La Gaffelière is explosive, lifted and aristocratic in its breeding. Bright Cabernet Franc aromatics give the wine its signature lift and precision. Raspberry jam, rose petal, mint, blood orange, tobacco and pomegranate build slowly on the palate, leading to a super-expressive, finely knit finish. Powerful yet also impeccably refined, the 2014 has it all. The 2014 is 55 % Merlot, 37 % Cabernet Franc and 8 % Cabernet Sauvignon. Don't miss it. 95+ (AG)" (2/2017) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Superripe fruits dominate this win ...Read More »

2014 Figeac, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

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.

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 »

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

93 points James Suckling: "Fascinating aromas of dark fruit, smoke and dried flowers. The palate is full and juicy yet still delivers a solid and polished tannin structure as well as a good backbone of acidity, which adds depth and definition. Solid wine. Great value for the quality. Better in 2020." (2/2017) 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 a ...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) 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 ...Read More »

2014 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "A big black-cherry and bitter-chocolate nose leads into a rich, concentrated palate, where the fruit easily holds sway over the powerful, dry tannins. It’s these that drive everything along right through to the assertive, slightly earthy finish; impressive long-term stuff!" (2/2017) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a powerful wine, made to age for a long time, from this estate which is performing in top gear. Complex tannins and dark fruits both make their presence felt. It has weight, ripeness and a dense structure. A great success, it is unlikely to be ready t ...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 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Prieuré-Lichine is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Silky, perfumed and gracious on the palate, the wine exudes class. Sweet floral and spice notes meld into a core of red stone fruit, and silky tannins and vivid flavors lead into a creamy and inviting finish. I would prefer to cellar the 2014 for at least a few years, but it is quite beautiful and polished even at this early stage. The blend is 65 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 30 % Merlot and 5 % Petit Verdot. This is a very strong showing from Prieuré-Lichine and consulting winema ...Read More »

2014 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Vinous: "A stunning, breathtaking wine, the 2014 Clos Fourtet is without question one of the stars of the vintage. Deep yet also wonderfully nuanced, it exudes energy and transparency. 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. Today, it is exceptionally beautiful in every way. The blend is 89 % Merlot, 7 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 4 % Cabernet ...Read More »

2014 Beauséjour (Duffau), St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Vinous: "An utterly spellbinding wine, the 2014 Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau-Lagarrosse is also one of the unqualified successes of the vintage. Beams of tannin give the 2014 its ample, broad feel. Inky red cherry, blueberry, smoke, leather and tobacco fill out the wine's big frame effortlessly. Layers of intense fruit meld into a huge spine of tannin in a vertical, massively structured Saint-Émilion. So many 2014s are charming and accessible, but this is not one of them. Readers will have to be patient. (AG)" (2/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "So layered with a lovely richness of chocolate, ...Read More »

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 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 Lagrange, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm and still dry with the solid tannins, the wine's ripe fruitiness is developing well. The combination gives great potential. Black currant and berry fruits are both there with crisp juicy acidity. The aftertaste is a reminder that this wine has a long way to go. (RV)" (2/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Lagrange is terrific. Bold, juicy and exuberant, the 2014 possesses striking balance and textural richness. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, iron, smoke and tobacco underpin a core of intense red-toned fruit in a super-expressive, layered wine endowed with real pedigree. T ...Read More »

2014 Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "A tight and subtle wine with very pretty ripe-fruit character and chocolate. Medium to full body. Needs time to open. Better in 2020." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Clinet is powerful, deep and enveloping. Black cherry, smoke, graphite, chocolate and French oak give the wine its intensity and gravitas. Hints of lavender and violet develop in the glass, adding lovely aromatic nuance, but the 2014 remains a big, imposing wine in need of cellaring. This is impressive juice. Tasted two times. 94+ (AG)" (2/2017) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Dark in profile, featuring a steeped core of fig and blackberry ...Read More »

2014 Maucaillou, Moulis-en-Medoc (Pre-Arrival)

90 points Vinous: "The 2014 Maucaillou has turned out nicely. There is good purity and freshness to the fruit. Sadly, the new oak has not integrated, so readers will have to accept that small flaw. Regardless, this is a very pretty wine with plenty of bright red stone fruit, floral overtones and silky tannins. (AG)" (2/2017) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A ripe, juicy and smoky wine that is already attractive to drink. It has soft tannins, ripe red berries with acidity and black currants at the end.

Dark cherry, plum, smoke, scorched earth, licorice and menthol all flesh out as this radiant, deeply expressive wine shows off its considerable pedigree. The 2014 is going to need time to fully come together, but it is super-impressive.

From biodynamically grown grapes. First year. Drink or hold." (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This second wine of Château Palmer is dense and structured. With ripe swathes of black fruits and juicy Merlot showing strongly, it already displays the potential of the vintage. Generous and ripe, the wine has a fine level of perfumed tannin.

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.

(4/2015) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Pédesclaux 2014, what will surely be known in future as the 'fishtank' château given that it is now encased in glass, is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Merlot aged in 60% new oak.

The wine, with its dominance of Cabernet Sauvignon, is dense with tannins as well as dark fruit. It is firm, powerful and a very fine wine for long-term aging. Drink from 2024. ( ...Read More »

2014 Kirwan, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* While the wine from this major estate is dry at this stage, it is just covering for the juicy black-currant fruit. It is a finely crafted wine, firm and structured while preserving the great fruit of the vintage. With this balance, the wine will develop well. Drink from 2024. (RV)" (2/2017) 93 points James Suckling: "Fresh herb and berry character with hints of lavender. Full to medium body, firm tannins and a long finish. This is on it for the vintage. Drink in 2020." (2/2017) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Château Kirwan, which was blended in mid-January and is being raised in around 4 ...Read More »

2014 Talbot, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "The smoky oak, full body and chunky tannins make a bold statement; indeed, the wine has plenty of flesh and packs a big tannic punch on the finish. Best Talbot in years." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Talbot is soft, silky and wonderfully nuanced on the palate. Much more refined from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2014 has moved toward greater finesse over the last two years. This is a lovely effort. Lifted rose petal and lavender notes add closing nuance. The blend is 62 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 35 % Merlot and 6 % Petit Verdot.

2013 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** Part of the select group of impressive wines from this year, this wine is ripe, rich and firmly structured. Black-currant fruitiness forms the base for solid tannins and a concentrated texture. The hints of wood-aging need to soften. Drink from 2022. (RV)" (3/2016) 91-92 points James Suckling: "This shows a solid core of fruit here with a wonderful asphalt, berry and mineral character. Full body, with excellent tannins, fruit and acid balance. Impressive. The extra dose of Cabernet Sauvignon at 85% and no Cabernet Franc makes this wine exceptional for the vintage. ...Read More » 



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) 98 points James Suckling: "Very subtle Yquem on the nose with dried pineapple, lemons, green apples and hints of botrytis. The palate grabs you by the arms and shows you superb concentration of spices, dried fruit, phenolics and incredible energy. Nothing is like this from Sauternes this vintage! Drink whenever you like. ...Read More »

2005 Lafaurie Peyraguey, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "There's beautiful ripe fruit in this, with pineapple, mango and papaya and hints of vanilla and honey. Full-bodied and medium sweet. Rich and round, with loads of cooked apple, citrus peel and spices. Long and flavorful. Dense and rich. Best after 2012. " (06/08) 92 points Robert Parker and 92 points Wine Spectator: "There's beautiful ripe fruit in this, with pineapple, mango and papaya and hints of vanilla and honey. Full-bodied and medium sweet.

2014 de Lamarque Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

92 points James Suckling: "Decadent aromas of ripe fruit, spices and meat follow through to a full body, soft tannins and a savory finish. Better in 2019 but already beautiful. Best Lamarque for some time. Don’t miss it." (2/2017)

2014 de Chantegrive Rouge, Graves (Pre-Arrival)

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has intense acidity, given some richness by a tannic core as well as ripe black plum flavors. It's aromatic and fruity, although the acid is almost shocking at the end. (RV)" (4/2015) Vinous: "The 2014 de Chantegrive is a midweight wine with good aromatic lift and plenty of floral/savory overtones. Sweet red cherry, tobacco and spice add further character. The 2014 is perhaps a touch light, but it is also quite attractive. This savory, feminine Graves appears to be best suited for near-term drinking. (AG)" (2/2017)

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "I was deeply impressed with these wines from Domaine de Chevalier. The red has a slight upper hand in 2014, but both wines are distinctive and full of character. Olivier Bernard owns one of the crown jewels of Bordeaux, as these wines clearly make evident. The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier is a total knockout. Precise, brilliant and finely sculpted, the 2014 possesses superb intensity. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red berries, along with finessed but persistent tannins, give the wine its regal personality. The 2014 needs a number of years to shed some ...Read More »

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 »

2014 La Dame de Montrose, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "What a nose for a second wine! Lovely cassis and delicately leafy/earthy aromas. It’s a rare beast: a really mineral red Bordeaux. This has excellent balance of ripeness and fresh dry tannins and acidity. Long, clean finish." (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The wine is powerful with fine tannins and concentrated black fruits. The dense texture is lifted by the acidity and beautiful fruit of the vintage. The tannins are dusty, tight and surrounded by beautiful fruit and acidity. This, the second wine of Montrose, will develop surely over the next several years. Drink from 2024. ( ...Read More »
