2016 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) New! Top Pick!
2016 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Superbly ripe and juicy, this is a solid, powerful wine that also is packed with black currant fruits. It is richly structured, concentrated and ready for long-term aging. (RV)" (4/2017) 94-97 points Wine Spectator: "A fresh bay leaf note leads off, followed quickly by pure, enticing layers of cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruit that emerge steadily through the long finish. Offers lovely mouthfeel and purity. A very pretty expression of St.-Julien. (JM)" (4/2017) 95-96 points James Suckling: "This is clearly the best wine I have tasted from Branaire-Ducru. Exquisite depth and richness are on offer, yet this is ...Read More »

1996 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien Top Pick!
1996 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Clos du Marquis is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon (lower than recent vintages), 33% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot (that usually goes into Leoville-Las Cases). Much like the 1996 Potensac that I tasted alongside at the château, the nose is youthful and backward with blackberry, freshly tilled soil, cedar and tobacco scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth entry, plenty of crisp and pure black fruit laced with cedar, harmonious and long. This is a great Saint Julien at 20 years of age, firing on all cyli ...Read More »

2016 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) New!
2016 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This is very concentrated yet soft and fresh in texture. Full-bodied and round and mouth-filling. So impressive how it fills your mouth yet remains fresh. It’s so framed." (4/2017) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This perfumed wine has a high percentage of ripe Petit Verdot that gives extra structure to the generous fruit core. The acidity is intense, complementing the delicious black-cherry fruitiness. It's an exuberant, but balanced, wine. (RV)" (4/2017) 93 points Decanter: "Palmer lost 20% of its crop in the spring, and the Merlot was affected more than the Cabernet so there is only around ha ...Read More »

1991 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L)

Purchased direct from the property and a personal favorite of K&L founder Clyde Beffa, Labegorce appeals to those with a preference for "old school" Bordeaux: structured, earthy, meaty and rustic, with dark fruits and classic Margaux minerality. Time in bottle brings out additional complexity, as the tannins soften as secondary and tertiary aromas and flavors of dried fruits, tobacco, wood and leather emerge. With 25+ years of age, this wine is mature and ready to drink tonight. Open and enjoy with food...steak, preferably!

2014 Montrose, St-Estèphe (375ml)

97 points James Suckling: "Incredible aromas of currants, blackberries, slate and flowers. Full-bodied yet so tight and beautiful with superb polish and brightness. The length is fantastic. Truly superb." (2/2017) 97 points Vinous: "The 2014 Montrose is without question one of the standout wines of the vintage. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and lavender are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up in the glass. But the 2014 is a much deeper wine than just a bunch of descriptors can conjure. In 2014, Montrose is a wine of exceptional finesse and polish. The late-ripening vintage allowed f ...Read More »

Big and powerful. (RV)" (4/2012) 93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries, with hints of earth and grilled meat, follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a tangy, fresh finish. Lovely citrus rind undertones. From Leoville Las Cases. Try after 2016."

Fabulous harmony to this young wine. Very classic Bordeaux. Superb depth and length. Real Bordeaux." (4/2016) 95-98 points Vinous: "One of the wines of the vintage, the 2015 Pontet-Canet oozes class, finesse and pure pedigree. A hypothetical combination of the 2010 (for its dark fruit and tannic structure) and the 2009 (for its voluptuous fruit), the 2015 offers remarkable intensity, power and grace.

(3/2016) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Domaine de Chevalier is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot picked from 23 September until 15 October at just 35 hl/ha, matured in 35% new oak.

2016 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Wine Spectator: "This is stacked, with dark plum, cassis and blueberry reduction notes forming the core. The serious spine of graphite and tar is thoroughly embedded, so the finish is long and polished. A beauty. (JM)" (4/2017) 94-95 points James Suckling: "The clarity and beauty of this young red are brilliant with blackberry, blueberry and mineral undertones. Full and racy. Long and wonderfully polished.

96 points Decanter: "An estate that has been making great leaps forward over recent years, and once again we have a gorgeous Clerc on our hands. This is extremely succulent, with aromatic complexity and a freshness that just bursts out of the glass. Things start off closed for the first minute or so, then the juice comes rushing through. The mid-palate is smooth and polished but also bursting with energy. This is quite clearly one of their best ever wines, ripped through with sweet cherry and wild blackberry fruit, tightened up by slate and cedar. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% ...Read More »

2009 Malartic-Lagravière Pessac-Léognan

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Malartic-Lagraviere ‘09 is evolving into one of the finest wines that the estate has ever produced. It has a more introverted bouquet with dark berry fruit, undergrowth and iodine. With rigorous swirling it still refuses to unfurl. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. It builds nicely towards a lovely black olive and spice tinged finish that exudes finesse. Superb.

2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, matured in 75% new oak and was picked between September 18 until October 4 (although the 'real' picking commenced from September 21). Now, Grand-Puy-Lacoste is often quite 'aloof' at this early juncture, but that is not the case with the 2015. This is more approachable aromatically, beautifully defined, thanks to that expressive Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin and finely tuned acidity (pH 3.68). Beguilingly harmonious in the mou ...Read More »

2011 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

(2/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Made with the young vines of the estate with Merlot dominant. Very deep crimson still. Sweet and round. Super charming. Fragrant and floral. Released 2015 and delivering lots of fun." (7/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Pauillac de Latour 2011 preceded the release of the 2010 Pauillac de Latour.

2016 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

What I like about the bouquet is that it is quintessential Margaux--it could not come from anywhere else. Crushed violets infuse black cherries, blueberry and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well-judged acidity, an elegant and very charming Margaux with pencil lead and a touch of spice on the long finish. What a brilliant wine from a Margaux estate that has really u ...Read More »

2010 Gloria, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Gloria is an ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate, which would probably be classified if the 1855 hierarchy of the wines of the Medoc were ever done again. Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. It is slightly more restrained than the flamboyant 2009, but equal in quality. This is a juicy, well-proportioned, sensationally concentrated, super-ripe Gloria to drink over the next decades. Of course, it is a sleeper of ...Read More »

It has matured quickly, revealing an orange/rust color at its rim. Notes of earth, herbes de Provence, black cherries, red currants, and dusty, loamy soil undertones are present in this elegant, fully mature, medium-bodied 2000. (RP) ...Read More »

92 points James Suckling: "This is really jammy on the nose, with hints of new toasted oak. Full bodied and generous, with lots of fruit and a soft velvety palate. I like the style. Big and yummy now, but give this three or four years." (3/2011) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of currant, smoke and coffee. Complex and expressive in the mouth, with lush but lively fruit and a sappy quality. Very pure, shapely wine with an attractive restrained sweetness and no shortage of depth. This largely avoids the jammy side of the vintage. Finishes with broad tannins and very good length. ...Read More »

2006 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

93 points James Suckling: "Wonderful complexity of fruit on the nose, with sweet tobacco, cherries, dried strawberries and flowers. Full body with well-integrated tannins and a complex finish. Ultra-fine tannins. Drink or hold." (6/2013) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Finely structured, this has become an impressive wine, gaining in intensity as it develops. The tannins are powerful but come from concentrated fruit as much as from wood. It is becoming a powerhouse of ripe flavors. This is a wine that shows how Malescot St-Exupéry is joining the top ranks in Margaux." (3/2009) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Complex aromas of truffle, blackberry a ...Read More »

1981 Feytit-Clinet, Pomerol

From the importer: "Situated on the western part of the plateau in the Pomerol wine appellation in Bordeaux, Château Feytit-Clinet belonged to the stable of Moueix family wines until 1999. Jeremy Chasseuil arrived at Château Feytit-Clinet in time for the stunning 2000 vintage. Previously a wine-maker at Château La Dominique, his efforts since have resulted in some very impressive wines. Soils here are rich in clay which favours the Merlot grape rather than the Cabernets, and Jeremy has exploited them perfectly to produce succulent wines, never over-extr... Read More »

2016 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival) New!
2016 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is another successful vintage from this estate. It is so finely structured that you notice the blackberry fruit more than the tannins, with a seam of crisp acidity throughout. (RV)" (4/2017) 94-95 points James Suckling: "Dense and chewy already with plenty of ripe tannins and bright fruit. Vivid acidity. Full body, a firm and silky texture and a flavorful finish. Lots going on. Excellent follow-up to the great 2015!" (4/2017) 88-91 points Wine Spectator: "Lively cherry and bitter plum fruit streaks through, laced with fine chalky tannins. Picks up iron and savory hints on the finish. (JM)" (4/2017)

2006 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Langoa Barton has a lifted nose of small dark cherries, blackberry, incense and marmalade - quite showy for Langoa Barton - but there is joie-de-vivre here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, ripe and demonstrating impressive density plus a firm grip. This really coats the mouth in tannin, although it is still balanced. It just needs another 4-5 years in bottle, the stubborn little lady. Tasted January 2016. (NM)" (5/2016) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Soft and ripe, here is a wine that just e ...Read More »

1997 Gloria, St-Julien

According to Robert Parker: "Recent vintages of Gloria have pushed the level of quality even higher. There is no doubting this cunningly made wine that offers mouthfilling levels of black cherry, herb-tinged, cassis fruit. There is plenty of glycerin in this velvety-textured, medium-bodied Gloria. Pure, plump, and succulent, it is all a young, exuberant claret should be... A sleeper of the vintage." (04/98)

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 »

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

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Concentrated tannins meet seamless line of juicy black currant on the palate. The structure is firm and tight, finishing with a lift of acidity. (RV)" (4/2016) 92-94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Branaire-Ducru is deep, fleshy and delicious. Radiant, open-knit and endowed with a total sense of class, the Branaire hits all the right notes. A striking mélange of dark red and purplish fruit, wild flowers, hard candy, mint, spice and new leather makes a strong opening statement. Sweet floral notes add lift on the finish. Branaire is one of the freshest, most perfumed Saint-Juliens of th ...Read More »

2003 Suduiraut, Sauternes

93 points James Suckling: "A wonderful and fascinating wine with a tangy sweet and sour character. Full and very sweet, with a dried citrus character and an underlying orange marmalade note. Long and delicious already. Lovely balance for having such a ripe finish. This can age forever, but why deny yourself?" (3/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of pecan pie, dried apricot, apples and syrup. Full-bodied, medium-sweet, with a dense mouthfeel of very ripe fruit and a long, powerful and spicy aftertaste. Very, very impressive. Not quite the 2001, but who's arguing? Best after 2010."

2010 L'Arrosée, St-Emilion

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A supple, lighter style of wine in 2010, the 2010 L'Arrosee is stylish and medium to full-bodied, with seductive notes of black cherries, cranberries and mulberries. 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. Cherry-vanilla, cassis and violet on the nose. Juicy and sweet, offering creamy red cherry and blackcurrant flavors and a repeating note of vanilla. The finish lingers with a spicy floral note. This graceful, balanced wine will offer early accessibility b ...Read More »
