2016 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

98-99 points James Suckling: "This is a superb wine. I didn’t think it could be better than the 2015 but indeed it is. Full, layered and sexy. It goes on for minutes with dense fruit, yet it’s also vivid and showcases sublime tannins and acidity balance. Great finish." (4/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Malescot-St-Exupery has an opulent, lavish and pure bouquet with billowing black cherry and blueberry fruit, a touch of mint and graphite emerging with time. I love the delineation to this Margaux. The palate is very well balanced, sensual and voluptuous in style, but that does not detract from the fine ...Read More »

2012 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac Top Pick!
2012 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Le Pauillac de Château Latour has a pleasant strictness on the well-defined bouquet with black fruit laced with fine mineralité for a third wine. The palate is medium-bodied with a juicy core of fruit, an almost pastille-like purity, smooth in the mouth with a caressing, quite rounded finish. It might have just put on a little weight since I last tasted it. Drink this now and over the next 7-10 years. Tasted March 2017. (NM)" (5/2017) K&L Notes: A previous Wine Advocate review from Robert Parker: "The generic 2012 Pauillac de Latour (54.5% Merlot and the bal... Read More »

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.

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.

Nothing is out place; instead, in 2016 Larcis impresses with its poise, depth and centeredness. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, chocolate, spice and lavender infuse the creamy, resonant finish, and all the richness of this south-facing site comes through loud and clear.

(JM)" (4/2017) 92-95 points Vinous: "The 2016 Talbot is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Black cherry, plum, gravel, smoke, lavender and mint all flesh out in this decidedly imposing, vertical Saint-Julien. Concentrated and forbiddingly tannic at this stage, the 2016 is going to need at least a few years to start coming into its own.

(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.

Opulent and round with an attractive viscosity as well as outstanding purity, depth and length, it should drink well for two decades.

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.

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 »

2016 Lalande-Borie, St-Julien (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. The wine has a fine, elegant character while at the same time density and power. It is ripe, full of acidity and pure black-currant fruitiness. The wine has dusty tannins, never tough, with fine fruit. For long-term aging. (RV)" (4/2017) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Rock-solid, with a core of blueberry, blackberry and cassis flavors, lined with slightly tarry grip. Keeps a fresh, driven feel through the incense-fueled finish. (JM)" (4/2017) 92-93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This is very linear and refined with tight-grained tannins and blackberry and blackcurrant character. Shows such finesse and beauty. ...Read More »

2016 Cantenac Brown, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Yes, this is firmly tannic and densely structured, but it's also a ripe wine, packed with fruit. The acidity is classic for this vintage, giving the wine excellent aging potential. (RV)" (4/2017) 94 points Decanter: "This is an elegant and beautifully balanced wine with plush damson aromatics and a punch of fruit that is totally captivating. The soft but extensive tannins of 2016 are fully on display, lush and well-worked. There is some charcoal and liquorice sitting underneath, with the wet stone minerality that always elevates a wine up to the next level. Very good. (JA) ...Read More »

2015 Petit-Village, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Shows wonderful balance and finesse with salt, mineral and dark fruit. Hints of walnut too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a bright finish. Wow. Best ever." (4/2016) 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.

2014 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (375ml)

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 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 »

2014 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "I like the floral character, which highlights the aromas of currants and berries. Full body and a firm and tight center palate. Silky tannins and a savory and creamy-textured finish. A beautifully balanced red. Try in 2021, but it’s already gorgeous to taste." (2/2017) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. While the wine does have a strongly dry element, it also has a creamy, black currant background that shows promise for the future. With great acidity offering freshness, this wine will balance well. (RV)" (4/2015) 92 points Vinous: "A wine of notable precision, persistence and class, the 2014 Cant ...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)

2010 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion New!
2010 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dense ruby/purple, it tips the scales at 15% natural alcohol and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full-bodied in texture, it offers up loads of blueberry, blackberry and raspberry fruit intermixed with some cedar, vanilla and a touch of spring flowers. Impressively built, with good acidity and light tannin, this is a superb example of wine that reaches its prime in 3 or 4 years and lasts two decades. It's right up there with their brilliant 2005." (2/2013) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Black ruby. Superripe, sexy aromas of blackberry pastille and blueberry. Creamy-sweet-verging-on ...Read More »

2011 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

90 points James Suckling: "This shows a frankness and beauty for a 2011 from the third wine of Latour. Bright and fresh with firm tannins and a currant and berry character." (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. It has a pleasant sous-bois and cedar-scented bouquet with a mote of chalk dust. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet and surprisi ...Read More »

2015 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "Very fine Clos du Marquis and very pure. The Cabernet Sauvignon really comes through here with extremely pretty tannins and a mineral, dark fruit aftertaste. Clear and precise. Refined." (4/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This serious wine has dark tannins and powerful concentration. It comes from a parcel of the Léoville-Las Cases vineyard that is nurtured separately. Blackberry and juicy fruits are right at the fore, giving great freshness along with a firm, dense structure. (RV)" (4/2016) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous, with anise, plum, blackberry and sweet tobacco notes already melded together seamle ...Read More »
