2001 Guiraud, Sauternes Top Pick!
2001 Guiraud, Sauternes

96 points Wine Spectator: "*#23 on the Top 100 Wines of 2004* Golden yellow. Butterscotch and vanilla with hints of ripe apples; full-bodied, with lots of sweetness and a spicy apricot and honey aftertaste. Excellent concentration and balance. Loads of botrytis character on the finish. Intense. Hard to refrain from drinking it now, it's so luscious and rich. Best after 2008. (JS)" (9/2004) 95 points James Suckling: "Intensely fruity and rich with wonderful sweetness and loads of spicy and honey character with a dried apricot undertone. It hasn’t changed much since I last tasted it, just bottled. Great 2001. D ...Read More »

2009 Echo de Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

91 points James Suckling: "So much crushed raspberry and hints of currants on the nose. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Second wine of Lynch Bages. Try after 2018." (2/2012) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers a lesson in Pauillac, with sleek black currant and fig fruit melded together, laced with graphite, tobacco and roasted cedar notes and backed by a long, iron-driven finish. This has grip, but the wine is made in a more accessible style for mid-term cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2019."

2005 Fontenil, Fronsac (1.5L)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the home estate of Dany and Michel Rolland, the 2005 Fontenil has an opaque, thick ruby/purple color. Dense plum, black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit jump from the glass of this full-bodied, terrific Fronsac, which is one of the appellation’s stars of the vintage. Long, rich, young, and capable of lasting another 15-20 years, this is one of the candidates for Wine of the Vintage in Fronsac. This wine actually needs another several years of bottle age. (RP)" (6/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Round and fruity, with crushed black fruit and a hint of oaky vanilla. Full-bodi ...Read More »

2005 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien

90-91 points James Suckling: "Aromas of plums and berries with hints of chocolate and spice. Medium to full body, with firm tannins and a chocolate and berry undertone. Well done. Second wine of Ducru." (4/2012) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The second wine, the sensational 2005 Croix de Beaucaillou, is the finest example of this cuvee I have ever tasted. Sweet black raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas soar from the glass of this open-knit seductress. A dense ruby/purple color, beautiful full-bodied, lush, expansive flavors, low acidity, and sweet tannin suggest this lovely cuvee should be drunk over the next 1 ...Read More »

2015 Giscours, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Giscours, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This sets a new level for Giscours with blackberry, black truffle and blueberry. So much walnut and cedar. Full body, dense and incredibly long and powerful. Clearly the best Giscours since 1970 and 1975." (4/2016) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Giscours is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. That is in stark comparison to older vintages, for example the 2000 Giscours that was 50/50 Cabernet and Merlot. This vintage is matured in 50% new oak.

1994 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

Decanter: "Light, jammy fruit nose. Attractive fruit on the palate, with good, round tannins - an elegant wine." (12/1998) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It has been a few years since I last tasted this vintage of Gruaud.... The nose is light but nicely defined with faded dark plum, undergrowth and cigar box scents. The palate is well balanced with a leafy green edge one might expect for the vintage....and yet you cannot help feeling that a bottle served on the dining table would be polished off without complaint. Approach it for what it is and you will not be disappointed. Drink now. Tasted Febru ...Read More »

This always impresses me, with its rich and decadent character. Best after 2009. (JS)" (1/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The resurgence of l’Arrosee that we’ve seen over the last four or five years is not apparent in the 2000. It has matured quickly, revealing an orange/rust color at its rim.

2015 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Gazin has a perfumed bouquet with layers of black cherry, raspberry coulis and truffle scents, more welcoming and sensual than the wines a decade ago from barrel when they intermittently felt under-ripe. There is none of that here for sure. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit on the entry. There is excellent structure here, a masculine Gazin with plenty of grip, counterbalanced by abundant tertiary, tobacco-tinged black fruit. There is real salinity towards the finish, completing a superb wine by Nicolas de Bailliencourt and his t ...Read More »

(3/2016) 93-96 points Vinous: "The 2015 Petit-Village is the first vintage made under the stewardship of new technical director Diana Berrouet-Garcia. An explosive Pomerol, the 2015 possesses remarkable intensity, texture and overall depth. Dark cherry jam, smoke, licorice, crushed rocks and espresso are some of the many notes that grace this exceptional Pomerol. I can't remember tasting a Petit-Village this good.

The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, sage and melted tar. There is wonderful structure here, superb salinity, completely fulfilling the promise it demonstrated out of bottle.

Exotic, expressive aromas of apricot, honey, white raisin and caramel. Superripe and moderately thick but with sound acids giving it excellent balance.

(3/2015) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Canon 2014 is a blend of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, the estate moving towards the latter in terms of its new plantings, which will possibly see 40% in 15 or 20 years time. 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.

1989 de Fieuzal, Pessac-Léognan

This lavishly-oaked wine displays copious quantities of toasty new oak as well as earth/herb-tinged red and black currant fruit in its moderately intense bouquet. On the palate, the wine reveals medium body, low acidity, and elevated tannin in the finish. It is a more compact, leaner style of wine than its slightly sweeter, fleshier sibling, the 1990.

1996 La Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien

The second wine of Château Ducru-Beaucailllou, the grapes come from the château's vineyard. Like its first growth counterpart, undergoes careful selection in the vineyard. Designed to drink younger than Ducru-Beaucaillou, it is still a St-Julien, with the region's characteristic finesse and ability to age.

Some oak is present, but this is a mid-weight, savory, broad and disarming wine to drink over the next 10-15 years." (2/2013) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated red.

Rich and intensely concentrated, this beauty should drink well for a decade or more.

1995 du Tertre, Margaux

Jancis Robinson: "Mid ruby. Very fragrant and high toned. Lightweight and much gentler tannins than most 1995 Margaux. But actually this makes for an attractive drink. Not an attention grabber but very well balanced – although some may find the acidity just a tad pronounced." (2/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A chocolatey, berry-scented nose with weedy cassis, licorice, and earth aromas is followed by a medium-bodied wine with fine concentration. Although monolithic, the 1995 is well-made, mouthfilling, and moderately tannic. (RP)" (2/1998) Wine Spectator: "A rustic wine with decent fruit. Slightly weedy, with berry, ...Read More »

It exhibits ripe blue and black fruits, a dense plum/purple color, good acidity buttressing a remarkably rich, fleshy, sumptuous texture, and oodles of smoky black currant and blueberry fruit. Ripe, heady and rich, this wine will probably benefit from 2-5 years of cellaring despite its precociousness and keep for two decades.

It's very opulent, a great full-fruited wine. (RV)" (6/2006) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "A gravel wash of tannin creates the structural base for this wine, spreading red currant and licorice root flavors through a long finish. The fruit is bold and supple, the mineral flavor providing tension that will sustain the wine as it ages over the next decade. For braised lamb."

It offers up complex aromatics consisting of herbs, red and black fruits, minerals, acacia flowers, and licorice. The dark plum color does not possess the saturation of a vintage such as 2000, but this is pure seduction in a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, nicely-textured effort. It is virtually impossible to duplicate such a wine anywhere else in the world. (RP)" (4/2002) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red.

Dense and brisk on entry, then a bit diffuse in the middle, but with vibrant flavors of passion fruit, grapefruit and herbs. Firm and bright but quite ripe too, showing nothing green or hard on the long, bracing finish.

Now, Grand-Puy-Lacoste is often quite "aloof" at this early juncture, but that is not the case with the 2015.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the chateau with Henri Lurton. This has a very intense nose: much more opulent and ravishing than you would expect from a ’99. There is a strange aroma, sort of, sage and onion inflecting the ripe red-berried fruits but it clears up to offer more orthodox scents of saddle-leather and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied, quite a gutsy Margaux, sinewy although perhaps lacking a bit of finesse towards the linear finish.

(RP)" (6/2007) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(55% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 15% petit verdot; all of the fruit was in by S ...Read More »

2015 Rieussec, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "The is a phenomenal wine with dried pineapple and pear aromas and flavors. Full, very sweet. Incredible depth and power. Super complex." (4/2016) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Rieussec, a blend of 86% Semillon and 14% Sauvignon Blanc, was picked over five tries through the vineyard between 9 September and 27 October. "We had a bit of frost towards the end and 10% was harvested afterwards. The quality was affected and this was put into the second wine," winemaker Eric Kohler informed me. This year the grand vin constitutes between one-third and one-fourth of the total crop. It ...Read More »

1988 de Fieuzal, Pessac-Leognan

91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe, concentrated and youthful, offering generous plum, currant and anise aromas and flavors framed by cedar and toughened a bit by tannins that will need until 1997 to 2000 to settle down. The fruit concentration is impressive." (4/1991) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1988 Fieuzal is an extracted, darkly-colored wine with an excellent nose of sweet curranty fruit, medium body, and a compact, very tannic (nearly astringent) finish. The wine has closed up since its bottling and appears to need considerable time in the bottle. Will the fruit hold up? (RP)" (2/1993)

2000 La Fleur de Jaugue St. Emilion

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Unquestionably a sleeper of the vintage, this dense ruby/purple-colored effort reveals medium body, moderate tannin, good structure, and outstanding purity as well as concentration. Redolent with flavors of plum, cherry, and raspberry, with the telltale licorice note, this wine is not as fruit-forward as many of the estate's efforts, yet readers will not have to wait long for the pleasure to begin. (RP)" (4/2003)

2003 Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc

92 points Wine Spectator: "Beautiful and intense aromas of blackberry, lightly grilled meat and currant. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and big, velvety tannins. Blockbuster. (JS)" (3/2006) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby-red color. More grilled on the nose than the 2004 or 2005: superripe black fruits and bitter chocolate. Then liqueur-like verging on confectionery in the mouth, but with surprisingly healthy acids giving shape to the dominant black fruit flavors. At once velvety and quite powerful, with the fine-grained tannins currently conveying a rather soft impression. (ST)" (5/2006) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This fre ...Read More »

2000 Lafon-Rochet, St-Estèphe

91 points Wine Spectator: "Concentrated wine. Intense aromas of grilled meat, spice and plum skin. Full-bodied, with big silky tannins and lots of fruit. Long and chewy." (3/2003) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the better wines (and also reasonably priced) to emerge from this property over recent years, this dense ruby/purple-colored wine shows a complex nose of earth, underbrush, creosote, creme de cassis, and dried herbs. Sporting a new yellow/orange label that matches the dramatic paint job on the chateau itself, the wine has a deep ruby/purple color, medium to full body, fine ripeness as well as purity ...Read More »

2015 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (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?" (4/2016) 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. It offers plenty of blackberry and raspberry fruit on the nose, not the best defined ...Read More »

2015 Suduiraut, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "A phenomenal white with dried fruits such as apricots and mangos. Masses of bortrytis spice. Full body yet agile and bright with incredible lightness and delicacy. So much cherry blossom too. Small white flowers. Medium sweet. Ginger. Great finish." (4/2016) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Suduiraut comes with 123 grams per liter of residual sugar, more modest than some of its Sauternes peers and 4.56 grams per liter of acidity. It has a sense of completeness on the nose already: immense clarity with wild honey and quince aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is me ...Read More »

2003 Saint-Pierre, St-Julien

94 points James Suckling: "Mint, blackberry, and currant on the nose follow through to a full body, with soft velvety tannins and a new wood and ripe fruit aftertaste. Tight and firm, but wait until after 2012 to pull the cork." (3/2011) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beefy, masculine, vigorous, full-bodied wine, the 2003 Saint-Pierre is just beginning to hit full maturity. A lovely bouquet of cedarwood, forest floor, roasted herbs, black currants, new saddle leather and spice is followed by a long, well-made, beefy, rich, voluptuously textured wine with low acidity and ripe tannin. Drink it over the next 7-8 yea ...Read More »

2012 Le Carillon de L'Angélus, St-Émilion (Previously $100)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. A dark wine with rich, fruity blackberry flavors. It's very juicy in character with an opulent, soft texture, reflecting the ripeness of the grapes this vintage. (RV)" (4/2013) 90-91 points James Suckling: "A solid wine with blueberries and minerals. It’s full and tannic yet polished and refined. Second wine of Angelus." (4/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "His second wine, the 2012 Carillon de L’Angélus, has turned out well for proprietor Hubert de Boüard. Dense ruby purple, it is soft and round, with deep fruit, light tannin and a nicely textured mouthfeel. This is a serious second wine to drink ov ...Read More »

2001 de Malle, Sauternes

95 points Wine Spectator: "Golden-colored, with extreme aromas of honey, candied lemons and mandarin oranges. Full-bodied, very sweet and concentrated. It goes on and on. Thick and rich. Loads of spicy, almost hot botrytis character. Best after 2010. (JS)" (9/2004) Jancis Robinson: "Rich, broad and very, very full. Relatively low in acidity and faintly raisiny, but no shortage of botrytis. Big build. Very rich and creamy. (JR)" (4/2002)
