2016 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
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 »

2016 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "A powerfully dense, impressive wine from a top-performing estate with a solid, foursquare structure. The crisp acidity so much in evidence in this vintage shines through all this richness. Keep the wine for at least 12 years. (RV)" (4/2017) 95-96 points James Suckling: "This is so linear and refined with compacted fruit and superb tannin texture. The length and beauty to this grab you immediately and make you pay attention. Wait and see." (4/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Malartic-Lagraviere is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot picked between 13-20 Octo ...Read More »

2015 Monbousquet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "A rich and round wine with beautiful fruit and chocolate, meat and berry character. Full body and a juicy finish. Hard not to drink now as it’s so delicious. But wait. Drink in 2020 onwards." (2/2018) 95 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, expressive, slightly showy style, with waves of cassis, creamed raspberry and boysenberry fruit racing forth, backed by a polished yet ample structure. The long, licorice- and ganache-framed finish packs on weight as it moves along, yet stays defined and pure. Impressive. Best from 2022 through 2040.

2014 Giscours, Margaux

(2/2017) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Still dry and concentrated and with swathes of rich tannins, the wine is dark and dense. The undertow of ripe black fruit is impressive. It obviously has considerable aging potential, Drink this serious wine from 2025. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (2/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Giscours has come on leaps and bounds since I tasted it twice in barrel.

1990 Bel Air Lagrave, Moulis (1.5L)

Family owned for over 150 years, Bel Air Lagrave is a highly respected Bordeaux estate in Moulis. Classic in style, and emphasizing elegance and purity of fruit, this predominately Cabernet wine (with a good portion of Merlot and a bit of Petit Verdot), generally spends nearly 20 months in oak, some neutral and anywhere from 35 - 50% new depending on the nature of the vintage. Though mature, the wine has preserved fruit, energy and balanced nuance of both freshness and elegance. Textural, medium-bodied, evolved and expressive Bordeaux that won't set your... Read More »

Powerful and rich with loads of fruit and ripe tannins. Very ripe. Try in 2016."

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

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 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

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) 95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Grand Puy Lacoste is superb. Dark, dense and inviting, the 2014 possesses remarkable depth and richness. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco all develop in the glass, but it is the overall feel that is most impressive. Silky, polished tannins nicely balance the wine's overt personal ...Read More »

2000 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

91 points Wine Spectator: "Very pretty aromas of crushed fruit, with raspberry and blackberry character. Full-bodied, yet fine and silky, with a long, delicious finish. Very balanced red. I can't remember tasting a better Lynch-Moussas. Best after 2009." (3/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Probably the best effort I have tasted from Lynch-Moussas ... in my career! Deep ruby/purple, with a sweet nose of creme de cassis intermixed with licorice, dried herbs, and vanilla, the wine is rich in fruit, has good glycerin, silky tannin, and a nice, spicy, layered finish.

2014 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Haut-Bailly has turned out beautifully. Dark, sumptuous and expressive, the 2014 exudes depth and finesse. Ample and resonant on the palate, with striking depth, the 2014 possesses exceptional balance and class. Hints of smoke, tobacco and licorice infuse the deep, creamy finish. (AG)" (2/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "A very well-made, modern wine with ripe cherry and cassis notes but rather discrete oak. The bright fruit and lively acidity balance the moderately dry tannins very well, and the finish is long and quite complex. Compacted. Needs time to open. Beautiful. ...Read More »

2015 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "This is sensational, characterized by such purity and beauty and with aromas of blackberries, dark chocolate, walnuts, cedar and lavender. Full-bodied, tight and focused — in part thanks to sensational tannin tension that is intense yet polished. Needs five to six years of bottle age to come together. Great second wine of Palmer." (2/2018) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Powerful tannins initially show in this perfumed wine. Behind them lie velvety-smooth blackcurrant fruit. The wine is pure, open and will age well over a medium term. It will be ready to drink from 2025. (RV)" (4/2018) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The ...Read More »

2009 La Couspaude, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2009 La Couspaude, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best La Couspaude I have ever tasted, the opaque purple 2009 exhibits nicely integrated toasty oak/pain grille in addition to cassis, kirsch, raspberries and earthy undertones. Full-bodied, with beautiful integration of acidity, alcohol and tannin, this is a robust, exuberant, somewhat flamboyant style of St.-Emilion that is clearly modern, but quite frankly, delicious. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. (RP)" (2/2012) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Pure blackberry and currant fruits, lots of ripe and juicy flavors. Intense, concentrated and smoky.

2014 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "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. Drink from 2025. *Cellar Selection - Top 100 Wines of 2017* (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. Better in 2021."

Very polished and seamless with flavors of fresh black cherries, blackcurrants and blue plums. Best from 2022." (2/2018) 96 points Vinous: "The 2015 Malartic Lagravière is just as fabulous from bottle as it was from barrel. Rich, voluptuous and dramatic, it captures all of the natural intensity of the year.

2012 d'Issan, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Château d’Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. 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).

Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015." (4/2017) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Tour Saint-Christophe, the Saint Emilion estate of Peter Kwok whose eye-catching terraced vineyard looks upon Barde-Haut from the other side of the valley, is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc picked between 5-23 October and matured in 40% new oak.

Fruits are deep in the dark-berry spectrum, encapsulating a terrific sense of freshness through the finish. Great wine. Try from 2024." (2/2018) 96 points Decanter: "I loved this at en primeur, and again it is fully delivering on its promise. It has a high proportion of Cabernet Franc for a Pessac Leognan wine, which can make it a bit austere early on, but it has now had two years to fatten up.

1996 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

2009 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. This is a superb performance from Langoa Barton. Here, the 2009 has a lifted, perfumed, Burgundy-inspired bouquet that is nicely defined but showing a little more unresolved oak than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit on the entry: strawberry, cedar and blackcurrant. This is strict and very linear, conservative but compelling. The class is here from start to finish and presently stands shoulder to shoulder with its “big bro’”. (NM)" (7/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deceptively approachable wine.

Nice showing. (JM)" (4/2017) 93 points Decanter: "Huge density and concentration with incredible elegance and life.

2015 Saint-Pierre, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

I tasted the deep, inky-colored 2015 Château Saint-Pierre twice and it’s reminiscent of the 2010, only with more elegance. In 2015 the wine is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc and it spent 14 months in 50% new and 50% once used barrels.

From this 35-acre vineyard she has fashioned a sensational blend of 70% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Her finest effort since taking over this property in 1999, the 2005 boasts a saturated purple color followed by notes of ripe blackberries, black currants, licorice, incense, chocolate, and espresso. Thick, highly-extracted flavors nearly obscure the elevated tannins. This big, serious, rich claret is meant to last for three ...Read More »

An exciting wine; a real classic. (JA)" (11/2017) 93 points James Suckling: "Just a hint currant bush on the nose. This is loaded with healthy tannins on the palate that drive the long finish. Quite an uncompromising young wine that will be better from 2020, but the fundamental harmony is very convincing. Full and flavorful."

Rose petal, lavender, mint, sweet red berry and gently spiced notes give the wine much of its gracious, lilting personality. Precise and nuanced to the core, the 2015 Branaire is all class.

Aromas that spring from samples included acacia honey, orange blossom, grap ...Read More »

2015 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Beau-Sejour-Becot is a blend of 80% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 5-17 October, matured in 70% new oak barrels. It has a seductive and sensual bouquet with dark berries, blackberry and a subtle marine influence - kelp, perhaps brine. The palate is very smooth, satin-like tannin accompanied by a fresh line of acidity. Harmonious, almost sultry in style and yet there is plenty of freshness on the caressing finish. What a gorgeous Beausejour Bécot. To quote 1980s chanteuse Sade - this is a 'smooth operator.' (N ...Read More »

2014 Rieussec, Sauternes

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Rieussec 2014 is a blend of 93% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle, picked from 15 to 29 October through seven tries, the yield half the normal crop at 13 hectoliters per hectare. Charles Chevalier, how lest we forget started here and not chez Lafite, told me that the beginning of September had overripe grapes with passerillage – the second part had very good levels of botrytis. The blend is from these two parts. The bouquet is very well defined with crystal clear honeysuckle and white peach scents. The palate is beautifully balan ...Read More »

2015 Bourgneuf, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Impressive fresh violets and earthy notes with ripe dark plums. Leads to a very rich palate with ripe dark cherries, mulberries and boysenberries. Smooth tannins exude suave polish, and there's terrific fleshy appeal into the finish. All class. Try from 2022." (2/2018) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Juicy and fruity, this is a bright, acid- and fruit-driven wine. It has attractive, perfumed red berry fruits that are followed by lively acidity. It is for medium-term aging. (RV)" (4/2016) 93 points Decanter: "Again maintaining the success that this estate showed en primeur, and reflecting the pos ...Read More »

2000 Ormes de Pez, St-Estèphe

91 points James Suckling: "So youthful now with lots of thick spicy fruit. Still tight but loads going on. Thick and powerful. A little four square. But there. Serious." (6/2016) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (12/2003) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red-ruby. Medicinal black cherry, shoe polish and mint on the nose. Fairly intense but cool flavors of cassis, mint and shoe polish are supported by a firm spine. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins. Showing well today. Very St. Estephe. (ST)" (5/2003) Wine Enthusiast: "With its fine, ripe tannins and immediately attractive acidity, this is a wine which looks set to develop relatively fast b ...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."

The wine is matured is 50% new oak. The Cabernet comes through strongly on the nose as you would expect: quite intense black fruit, graphite and just a touch of dried herbs.

Better in 2018 but very beautiful already." (2/2015) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This structured wine with big, bold red fruits offers ripe acidity, a dense texture and considerable concentration.

2010 Latour-Martillac, Pessac-Léognan

93 points James Suckling: "I love the mid-palate to this young and attractive red, with silky tannins and alluring mineral, berry and stone character. Enchanting." (4/2011) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is an austere, structured wine. Its tannic framework currently dominates, giving the impression of a firm wine. It feels like classic Bordeaux, upright and dense. This makes for a wine that will need several years' aging." (5/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, but supple along the edges, offering a packed core of cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruit. The lovely licorice, dark tobacco and violet notes glide to the finish, which ...Read More »

(2/2018) 97 points Vinous: "Proprietor Alfred Tesseron and winemaker Jean-Michel Comme produced an absolutely stellar Pontet-Canet in 2015.
