2015 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) New!
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? A blend of 70% Cabernet Savignon, 30% Merlot." (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. (Web Only--2016) (JM)" 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.

2015 Giscours, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) New!
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. Winemaker Alexandre Van Beek told me that the 2015 "...reflects the true terroir at Giscours that created ...Read More »

1995 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

93 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderfully perfumed, with violets, flowers, fruit and cedar. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and a powerful structure. Powerful and reserved. (Web Only—2007)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I have indicated numerous times in this journal, the second wine of Las Cases, Clos du Marquis, is one of the finest second wines being made in Bordeaux. Over recent years, it has become a wine of classified growth quality. The 1996 may turn out to be even better than the outstanding 1995. Both are exceptional wines, with the 1996 slightly thicker and more viscous, with more noticeable new oak, ...Read More »

2012 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "This is amazing for the second wine with incredible white truffle, stone and currant character. Purity of fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, silky and refined. Fantastic length. Better in 2018 but almost impossible to resist now. Incredible."

Most serious Alter Ego ever. More inner Ego now!" (4/2016) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a beautifully perfumed wine. It has ripe black fruits that shoot through the richness. It has a velvet texture, rounded and already smooth. There is just a shot of tannin and the hint of wood at the end.

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 »

Precise and beautifully sculpted throughout, the 2015 bristles with energy. The flavors show good brightness, while the tannins are exceptionally polished. Freshly cut flowers, mint, espresso, sweet red plums and anise grace the palate in an utterly exquisite wine built on finesse, precision and nuance.

Perhaps best ever?" (4/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. 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.

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 »

(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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

Its acidity shows through in its bright character that is both approachable and structured.

There is a classic black-currant note that's balanced by the firm tannins of the vintage. (RV)" (2/2013) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Tightly focused, with a beam of cassis and blackberry fruit framed by integrated espresso and charcoal notes. The ample structure drives the polished finish, allowing extra notes of plum sauce, pastis and blueberry coulis to stride through. Shows serious grip at the very end.

2005 Coutet, Sauternes

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*#10 in Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Wines of 2008* Surprisingly dry, this has richness rather than sweetness, and intense, powerful botrytis. The honey is intensely perfumed, along with baked apples and spice. Certainly a long-aging wine. (RV)" (6/2008) 92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "It is not unusual for late harvest wines to have a bit of a sharp, kerosene edge to their lush personalities, although that characteristic is more often associated with the sweet wines of Germany than it is with those of Sauternes. Yet there, in the midst of the orange rind, dried peach, juicy pineapple, stra ...Read More »

Solid as a rock. Best ever from here. Try in 2019." (2/2012) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "While it has weight and richness, this is also seriously structured, a wine packed with dry tannins. The potential is all there—the sweet fruit of the vintage along with a solid texture and final acidity."

(2/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "No longer a second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou, but a wine from its own separate vineyard, Croix de Beaucaillou is impressive.

Drink from 2018." (2/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This property has been making excellent wines under the administration of Caroline Frey, and 2012 continues their recent success. With a deep ruby/purple color, notes of new saddle leather, graphite, blackcurrants and black cherries, a supple texture, medium to full body and beautiful purity, this is an outstanding 2012 to drink over the next 20 years. In general, the blend ...Read More »

2014 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Gazin 2014 is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc picked between 19 September and 8 October. I like the freshness on the nose here: more black than red fruit, a little broody and introspective at the moment but well defined with mineral tones coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin and nicely judged acidity. There is a sense of nonchalance about this Gazin, nothing over-ambitious, something perhaps in keeping with the vintage, uninteresting in replicating the 2009 or 2010, happy in its own skin.

2013 Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Richly textured and full of ripe, juicy black fruits, this is an opulent wine. It has some firm tannins, surrounded by generous berry fruits and dark plum flavors. It’s good for medium-term aging. (RV)" (4/2014) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dense purple-colored 2013 Gazin offers a sweet kiss of licorice, mocha and black cherries along with a surprisingly ripe, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and nicely integrated oak, acidity and tannin. A touch of acidity in the finish provides vibrancy to this big 2013. It should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)" (8/2014) Wine Spectator: "Offers pr ...Read More »

2015 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a beautiful wine, full of great fruit and balanced dusty tannins. It is ripe and stylish, with all the elements in place. It should mature well. (RV)" (4/2016) 93-94 points James Suckling: "Wonderful purity of fruit here with blackberry, black currant and floral aromas and flavors. Full body. Fine tannins." (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Labegorce is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot that was picked between 15 September and 20 October.

2003 Lagrange, St-Julien

92 points James Suckling: "I really love the character of dark berries such as blueberries and currants here. Some rose leaf too. Full body with fine tannins and a savory, fruity, silky-textured finish. Very fine indeed. Drink or hold." (7/2013) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A dark, dry, brooding wine, which has flavors of blackberries and red plum skins, which is not at all dominated by wood. This is a classic wine, with Saint-Julien’s elegance and 2003’s power." (5/2006) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry and currant with just a hint of black licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and subtle ripe f ...Read More »

2001 du Tertre, Margaux

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under the same ownership as Giscours, and benefiting from big investment in recent years, this is an estate at the top of its form. The wine has aromas of sweet, new wood, while the palate is packed with tarry fruits and spicy wood and herbs. Flavors of ripe black currants give a rich, satisfying feel. This is a wine that is well structured, dense and, given another five years, will be delicious." (6/2005) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Broad and sexy, with supple tannin, the 2001 offers beguiling notes of toast, black currant liqueur, violets, and licorice in a seductive, opulent, medi ...Read More »

2004 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "New wood and high extraction are the dominant characteristics of this wine. That makes it in a modern, polished style, which will certainly evolve well, eventually arriving at something that is big and bold. Give it 4–5 years for that." (6/2007) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Possessing the finest aromatics of all the 2004 St.-Juliens, Branaire Ducru offers complex licorice, cranberry, boysenberry, and floral notes interwoven with notions of plums and figs. This dark ruby/purple-tinged, medium-bodied, elegant effort offers sweet fruit as well as ripe tannins. Give it 1-3 years of bottle ...Read More »

2009 Cantenac Brown, Margaux

93 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromas of crushed raspberries, flowers, and hints of vanilla bean. Full body, with silky tannins and a juicy finish. Fresh and minerally." (2/2012) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firmly structured, dark-fruited wine, very solid and dense. It has weight along with black currant fruits and acidity. It’s a wine that is rich but seriously structured for aging. (RV)" (2/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This is perfumy and very pure, with lovely lilac and blackberry aromas followed by plum, cassis and black cherry fruit. The supple finish is caressed with toast that leaves a lingering, perfumy feel. (JM) ...Read More »

2013 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a bold, ripe, fruity wine, perfumed with fruit that’s already attractive. The tannins are dry, but balanced with the fruit. A good choice for medium-term aging." (4/2014) 92-93 points James Suckling: "This is incredibly long and intense for the vintage with raspberry and citrus character. Fine tannins. It goes on for minutes. An electrifying wine for the vintage from organically grown grapes." (4/2014) 91-93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pavie Macquin boasts striking depth, power and volume for the year. Resonant and layered on the palate, the 2013 possesses gorgeous depth and tons of intens ...Read More »

1997 Monbousquet, St-Emilion Back In Stock!
1997 Monbousquet, St-Emilion

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the vintage's superstars, this dark plum/purple-colored 1997 offers flamboyant, explosive aromas of vanillin, cherry jam, licorice, and new oak. Deep, concentrated, rich, and surprisingly chewy, this full-bodied, gorgeously concentrated and proportioned St.-Emilion will be hard to resist young. There is some tannin to be shed, but the wine is so ostentatious, it is impossible to ignore. (RP)" (4/2000) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium-dark red. Currant, raspberry, smoke and truffle, plus a note of roasted coffee. Supple and sweet but fresh in the mouth; will rely more on its ...Read More »

2014 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pavie Macquin is superb. Black cherries, smoke, new leather, cloves and cedar blossom in the glass as this textured, voluptuous St.-Emilion shows its dark, enticing personality. The flavors are distinctly sepia-toned in a muscular, powerful Pavie Macquin that will drink well for several decades. Savory herbs, crushed flowers, mint and smoke blossom on the dense, explosive finish. The blend is 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)" (4/2015) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Well-packed, with ample boysenberry, blackberry and raspberry flavors that course al ...Read More »
