1991 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) Top Pick!
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!

2015 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "The beauty in the fruit here is so impressive. Full body, super fine tannins. It’s very racy and incredibly long. Sexy and rich finish. Better than the legendary 2009?" (4/2016) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Very lush and warm, with delicious plum and boysenberry fruit flowing easily over the well-integrated structure. Generous in feel, offering a lingering black tea note. Very suave. (JM, Web-2016)" 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Malescot-St-Exupery has an intriguing and complex bouquet with oyster shells and seaweed infusing the intense black fruit. It is certainly well defined with nicely integrated new oa ...Read More »

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 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This wine, with its massive tannins and rich fruit, is obviously set for a long life. It does have the contrast of fresh black-currant acidity to give it a lift. But with the power behind it, the wine will develop slowly. (RV)" (2/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "Very aromatic with cherries and blackberries. Hints of flowers. Full body, lightly chewy yet ultra-fine tannins and a fresh finish. Tangy and delicious. Racy." (2/2017) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Léoville-Barton 2014 is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc picked between 25 September and 8 O ...Read More »

2010 Lagrange, St-Julien

96 points James Suckling: "Loads of tension and form. It can be cellared for decades, but it’s balanced and beautiful already. Lots of blueberry, licorice and blackberry character. Try in 2018." (7/2014) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "With vineyards in the west of Saint-Julien, Lagrange produces wines that are polished and elegant. In 2010, that style has been suffused with tannins while also delivering a black currant flavor. The wine is rich and ripe, with just the right amount of tannic structure for the fruit. (RV)" (2/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Notes of singed alder, graphite and charcoal wrap around the core of intense blackberr ...Read More »

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

96 points Vinous: "A wine of total finesse, the 2014 La Gaffelière is gorgeous. 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. Consulting oenologists Stéphane Derenoncourt and Simon Blanchard did a fabulous job with the 2014. In a word: ...Read More »

2000 l'Arrosee, St-Emilion

92 points Wine Spectator: "Powerful and decadent young red. Lots of smoky, berry and cherry character. Full-bodied and very chewy, with loads of fruit. 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. 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 »

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 »

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. (NM)" (7/2013) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Almost sweet in its richness, this is a deliciously fruity wine. The structure and tannins are almost buried among a ...Read More »

1995 Poujeaux Moulis-en-Médoc

91 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous aromas of crushed berries, cinnamon and plum. Full-bodied, very silky and very seductive. Wonderful wine. (JS, Web-2007)" Jancis Robinson: "Very dark blackish crimson. Very light nose. Well-mannered classic stuff...Fine tannins." (6/2007) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very good wine, with grip, tannin, medium to full body, and excellent ripeness, this unevolved, backward yet promising Poujeaux needs cellaring. There is some mineral-tinged, sweet black currant fruit in both the aromatics and flavors.

2014 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Léoville Poyferré is gorgeous. Dark, sumptuous and ample on the palate, it possesses remarkable depth. 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. (AG)" (2/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "A ripe, generous and substantial wine for this appellation with some real concentration, a solid core of ripe tannins and enough acidity to carry the long, savory finish. Needs four to five years to ...Read More »

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 »

2015 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

(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. It has a sophisticated bouquet that is more reserved than its peers.

2013 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

95 points James Suckling: "Fresh and aromatic with green papaya and lime character. Mango too. Full body, lazer guided palate with beautifully integrated fruit and wood. A great dry white Bordeaux. Drink now." (2/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A fabulous white wine from Malartic’s 17.5 acres of white grapes, this blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon hit 13.5% natural alcohol. It offers plenty of fresh fig, honeysuckle and orange blossom notes in a dense, concentrated, rich style.

2010 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of sliced mushroom. Full and round with chewy tannins. Give this four or five years to soften. Tight and structured. Better in 2017." (2/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The former home of Alexis Lichine is now owned by a Pacific-based French mining company. The low yields of the 2010 (the vineyard was hit by hail) have produced a smooth and rich style of wine, which is weighty while also showing fine acidity on the finish. This has definite aging potential. (RV)" (2/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dense purple, with loads of blueberry and blackberry fruit as w ...Read More »

Fruity and velvety. So much flavor. Why wait? But will improve for years." (3/2012) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Deliciously fruity, with chocolate notes and acidity. The wine has dense but soft tannins that merge seamlessly into the black fruits. It is ripe, sweet, densely juicy. (RV)" (2/2012) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest d'Armailhac I have tasted to date, the 2009 is largely Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) blended with a big wallop of Mer ...Read More »

2011 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

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.

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.

2000 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a spectacular terroir that has underachieved for years. However, hotshot guru Stephane Derenoncourt is behind the winemaking as of 2002, so everyone is expecting quality to soar. A pre-Derenoncourt wine, the 2000 is the finest Larcis Ducasse produced in many years. Full-bodied and ripe, with intense, herb-tinged black cherry fruit, admirable texture and mid-palate, this elegant, moderately tannic, dark ruby-colored wine is far superior to recent efforts. A certain dusty quality to the tannins may prove troublesome. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017 ...Read More »

Emmanuel Cruse told me how they suffered less rain on the weekend of 12 and 13 September, 32 millimeters being less than in the northern Médoc.

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.

It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206).

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.

It has quite a high IPT at 81, a pH of 3.72. It has a clean and crisp bouquet, tightly-wound at first, then unfurls with redcurrant, cranberry and raspberry scents, leaning towards the red spectrum rather than black. There is impressive delineation here, no frills, almost clinical in its "aromatic efficiency." The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is a su ...Read More »

2014 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "The nose is really glorious with strawberry, wet-earth, blackberry and dark-mushroom character. Full body, a solid core of fruit and beautiful tannins. It’s polished and velvety." (2/2017) 95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Larcis Ducasse is soft, silky and nuanced. Dark cherry, plum, tobacco, mint and spice flesh out effortlessly in a midweight Larcis that will drink well with minimal cellaring. There is gorgeous depth and density in the glass, but the 2014 also appears to be a bit closed following its bottling in May 2016. With time in the glass, the wine's raciness and voluptuou ...Read More »

2014 Meyney, St-Estèphe (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

92 points James Suckling: "This is one of the most immediately appealing 2014s from the appellation thanks to its very ripe black fruits, and there’s still a lot of structure behind it. Reminds me of some of Meyney’s top vintages of the 1960s." (2/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, smoke, chocolate, licorice and tobacco are some of the signatures in the 2014 Meyney. This is one of the more overt, flamboyant 2014s readers will come across. Although certainly not a shy wine, it is loaded with personality. The late harvest and the generally intense style favored by consulting winemake ...Read More »

2003 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

92 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry, toasted oak, sweet tobacco and espresso. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. I like the texture. Best after 2010. (JS)" (3/2006) 91 points James Suckling: "Spicy and earthy, with lots of ripe fruit. Full bodied, with soft round tannins and a juicy finish. Yummy and decadent. No need to wait, but it will be much better if you pull the cork after 2014." (3/2011) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under the management of Jean Merlaut, this estate has lost some of the super-opulence of the wines of the 90s, and gained finesse and elegance. That has stood the 2003 in good stead ...Read More »

2014 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrants and sweet tobacco. Wet earth to boot. Full-bodied, tight and chewy with firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften. Try drinking in 2021." (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a structured wine that still has serious layers of ripe fruit and rich tannins. The black currant from the Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced by the jammy richness of the delicious Merlot. It’s an impressive wine that continues the progress of this estate, owned by Lafite-Rothschild. Drink from 2024. (RV)" (4/2017) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Duhart-Mil ...Read More »

2014 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants and strawberries follow through to a full body, super-integrated tannins and an extremely long finish. The bright acidity gives the wine a linear edge that focuses in all the fruit. Minerally." (2/2017) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a full-bodied wine, from one of the leading estates in Margaux. It is ripe with juicy blackberry and black-currant fruits. This fruit contrasts with the dark tannins and powerful structure. It is going to develop slowly and impressively to be ready to drink from 2025. (RV)" (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "Th ...Read More »

2012 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol (1.5L)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, it transcends the vintage boasting a black/purple color along with sweet black raspberry and blueberry fruit notes intermixed with spring flowers, incense, new oak and lavender. Rich and intensely concentrated, this beauty should drink well for a decade or more. (RP)" (4/2013) 91 points James Suckling: "A very polished red with plum, wet earth, blackberry and spice character. Full body, soft, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Drink in 2017." (2/2015) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining inky purple. Strong, sexy oak notes complement cass ...Read More »

1997 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has improved since en primeur. Some green stalkiness on nose but good balance on the palate with firm tannins. Yet very elegant with fine complexity. Feminine with low acidity. Nice cassis-infused finish. On the palate this does not have the under-ripeness that mars many Left Bank wines. This is a commendable 1997. (NM - Wine Journal)" (10/2001) Wine Spectator: "I like the berry and violet character in this wine. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a fresh finish. (JS)" (1/2000)

2009 Petit Lion Marquis de las Cases, St-Julien

91 points James Suckling: "Blueberries and minerals on the nose, with hints of flowers. Full body, with firm and chewy tannins and a fresh finish. A little linear in structure, but very fine. Second wine of Leoville Las Cases. Try in 2018." (2/2012) 88-91 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* Currants on toasted bread character on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Balanced and attractive. This is the new name for the second wine. (JS, Web-2010)" Jancis Robinson: "Very concentrated and rich – very 2009 on the nose. Tannins already softening but they are there, well hidden. Round ...Read More »

2015 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. There are plenty of firm tannins here, although this wine succeeds because of the intense acidity and classic black currant flavors. It is already a delicious wine with its fine acidity and lively aftertaste. (RV)" (4/2016) 91-92 points James Suckling: "A firm and silky red with blackberry and chocolate character. Hints of walnut. Full and chewy. Fresh finish." (4/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Duhart Milon is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot picked between September 23 and October 6, the September 17-23 respectively. It will eventually see 40% new oak during its élevage. ...Read More »
