2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This large estate of 131 acres has been run brilliantly by a Belgian family, the Bonnies since their acquisition a number of years ago. The quality of the white and red have soared to exceptional heights, and this is certainly still one of the more realistically priced wines of Pessac-Lèognan and classified crus. The 2012 is a beauty, with a dense ruby/purple color, a fabulously plush, opulent texture and medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, spicy earth and blueberry. Quite rich, yet light on its feet, this is an absolutely textbook Pessac-Lèognan, w ...Read More »

2005 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2005 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This beautiful wine from Fleur Cardinale performed great in its youth, both from barrel as well as post-bottling. A gorgeous blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon made by the Decoster family, the 2005 provides more evidence that this property is fully exploiting its tremendous potential. A few years away from reaching its plateau of maturity, its stunning nose of black cherry liqueur, cassis, licorice, earth and spice is followed by a full-bodied, concentrated and pure wine. Drink it over the next 15 or more years. (RP) ...Read More »

2001 Suduiraut, Sauternes Top Pick!
2001 Suduiraut, Sauternes

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A prodigious effort, possibly the finest Suduiraut since 1959, the medium gold-colored 2001 offers notes of creme brulee, caramelized citrus, Grand Marnier, honeysuckle, and other exotic fruits as well as a pleasant touch of oak. With terrific acidity, a voluptuous/unctuous palate, and sweet, powerful flavors buttressed by crisp acidity, it is a phenomenal Sauternes. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040. (RP)" (6/2004) 98 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #9 on the Top 100 Wines of 2004* Gorgeous aromas of honey, passion fruit, mango and candied lemon rind.

2000 Labegorce, Margaux (1.5L)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "If Margaux is the most delicate of the Médoc wines, then this is the epitome of Margaux. It is light, poised and attractively perfumed. The fruit is elegant and fresh with a fine streak of acidity. (RV)" (6/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Soft, ripe, and fruity, with big, smoky, charred berry-like scents intermixed with tobacco and plum aromas... (RP)" (4/2003) Wine Spectator: "Beautiful aromas of spices, berries and plums. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a clean finish.

2001 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Editors' Choice** This is a marvelously complete wine, with its impressive ripe fruit, shining through the open structure. It is firm, but not too much. Stone black fruits are just perfectly ripe. There is just a core of dryness to compliment the rest of the wine." (12/2007) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a deep ruby/purple-colored, stylish, sexy concoction of raspberries, graphite, smoke, minerals, and flowers.

2012 Clinet, Pomerol Top Pick!
2012 Clinet, Pomerol

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With a dense purple color and gorgeous levels of fruit, especially black raspberry and blackcurrant, this full-bodied, opulent style of wine is another great success for Clinet, a château that has been on top of its game for the last decade. This is stunning stuff, and whatever new oak has been used -- and there is plenty -- it is totally disguised by the luxurious and extravagant fruit level. This full-bodied, opulent Pomerol should drink well for 15 or more years. (RP)" (4/2015) 95 points Vinous: "A wine of total precision, the 2012 Clinet possesses striking aromatic nuanc ...Read More »

2001 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This has a very Pauillac-style, mineral rich bouquet with touches of brine, cedar and pine. Great definition. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, gentle but insistent grip with a very cohesive finish with a pointed citric thread that lends it such tension and freshness. This is a superb wine. (NM)" (3/2011) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A great, rich wine from what owner Henri Lurton calls a classic year. There are huge, sweet tannins, solid black fruit flavors and ripeness, without losing sight of balance between r ...Read More »

2012 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classic 2012 Haut-Bailly is staggeringly great wine, with a stunning bouquet of lead pencil shavings, blueberries, black raspberries and blackcurrants and perhaps a touch of spring flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with an almost seamless integration of wood, alcohol and tannin. It is rich, concentrated, stunningly supple, pure and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. This wine defines what is meant by intensity of flavor, but it is light on its feet, à la great cuisine. It should be drinkable reasonably young, but age effortl ...Read More »

2015 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a generous, rounded, juicy wine, with already a fine balance between tannins and fruit. Black currant flavors are contrasted by a dry, solid core that shows the wine's impressive potential. (RV)" (4/2016) 95-96 points James Suckling: "A dense and savory red with plenty of phenolic texture and ripe fruit character. Hints of walnut and spice too. Chewy finish. Solid center palate."

2000 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac

92 points James Suckling: "Just starting to open now, with currant, tea leaf and berry character, along with a mineral undertone. Full body with firm tannins and a long finish. Another couple of years more of bottle age would be good, but why wait?" (7/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful wine and one of my favorites from this estate, this blend of nearly two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Merlot is aging impressively. Dense ruby/purple in color, with creme de cassis, charcoal, and sweet leathery and chocolatey notes intermixed with the classic Pauillac cedar and spice box, the wine is medium ...Read More »

1989 Branaire-Ducru, St Julien

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium-deep red with an amber edge. Earthy nuances complicate ripe red fruit aromas on the rather woodsy nose. Then fresh and clean on the palate, with a very juicy quality to the ripe red fruit, truffle and scorched earth flavors. Not the most complex or longest Branaire-Ducru ever made, but very nicely balanced and drinking splendidly right now. The grapes were harvested between August 31 and September 28. (ID)" (3/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Approaching full maturity, the sumptuous, fleshy, dark garnet-colored 1989 is a top success for Branaire.

Loving it." (3/2016) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Rauzan-Segla is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc cropped at 40 hl/ha between 10 September with the young Merlot vines and finishing with the Cabernet Sauvignon, which was picked between 22 September and 9 October.

2015 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

Matured in 60% new oak, it has a more compelling and intense bouquet than the 2015 Langoa Barton at this early stage, whereas in other years I have found the siblings closer together. It delivers some lovely blackberry, sage and cigar box scents. The palate is very refined with edgy tannin, beautifully balanced with seamlessly integrated oak.

2012 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque bluish-purple 2012 Smith Haut Lafite offers up notes of licorice, graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, stunningly ripe, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is another sensational effort from the Cathiards that is perfectly balanced, complex, super-rich and pure. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. This is another great turn-around effort that dated from the acquisition of this once moribund estate in 1990, by Daniel and Florence Cathiard.

2005 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc

Needs a year or two to open and soften." (3/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A final blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot from the Frey family, the 2005 is a gorgeous La Lagune, and one of the first great ones under the Frey administration. This wine has a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful nose of sandalwood, black raspberries, and cassis, silky sweet tannin, medium to full body, and a textur ...Read More »

2001 Giscours, Margaux

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Editors' Choice*** It may have had a few winemaking controversies in recent years, but Giscours is now on a roll, under the ownership of Dutch businessman Eric Albada Jelgersma. How good it is, is shown in the 2001 wine, which is generous, almost opulent, rich and dense. Despite the richness, though, this is still Bordeaux: Dry tannins, tarry black-fruit flavors and firmness place the wine definitely at the table.

Medium to full body, fine tannins and a pretty finish with lovely tension. Drink or hold." (3/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Having just had the 2005 La Lagune, which I think is the greatest La Lagune I have ever tasted, the 2006 certainly loses some prestige in comparison, but this is an outstanding wine and further evidence of just how strong this estate’s wines have become.

Scents of black fruits, graphite, smoke, tobacco, grilled herbs and incense meld into a huge core of fruit. Hints of black cherry jam, wild flowers and mint add an attractive aromatic top register on the close.

(5/2013) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The team at Chateau Rieussec have conjured a stellar wine in 2009.

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Full-bodied and atypically rich and concentrated for a 2013, it boasts beautiful blueberry and creme de cassis fruit as well as underlying chalky minerality, and good richness and concentration. It is a noteworthy homage to Christine Vallete’s brilliant efforts at Troplong Mondot, which resulted in the elevation of this estate in the 2012 St.-Emilion classification. It can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. It has been less than six months since the irrepressible and brilliant Christine Vallette passed away after a long and courageous battle with ca ...Read More »

2014 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "A fabulous young wine with superb depth of fruit and density that shows blueberries, blackberries, oyster shells and stones. Full-bodied, chewy yet with a laser-guided backbone of tannins. Goes on for minutes. Concentrated yet so fine and beautiful. The tannin content analysis is the same as 2009 and 2010 apparently from the winemakers, but the tannin quality is better. Amazing. This could be a remake of the 2010 but fresher." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has the finest, dusty tannins that float through the structure. Don't be deceived, though—this ri ...Read More »

2015 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-98 points Wine Spectator: "This is a breed apart, featuring a wide range of verbena, chamomile and honeysuckle notes on the floral side, flavors of lemon curd, white peach and star fruit at the core, and a long finish that ripples with salted butter, brioche and acacia details. Beautiful. (Web-2016) (JM)" 96-97 points James Suckling: "A beautiful white with pretty density and richness. Bright and clear with intense aromas and flavors of lilacs and stones. Some violet. Full and bright. Firm phenolic tension. Bright acidity." (3/2016) 96 points Decanter: "Incredible intensity thanks to almost no lees stirring and no cold soaking, instea ...Read More »

It has great presence with its dark fruits, solid texture and concentrated berry flavors. (RV)" (4/2016) 96-97 points James Suckling: "This is very velvety and flamboyant with a sexy mouthfeel and rich and delicious fruit. Exotic and more-ish. All there. So much fun to taste."

2001 Monbousquet, St-Emilion

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The home estate of Chantal and Gerard Perse, the 2001 Monbousquet (a 7,500-case blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon bottled unfined and unfiltered) is a big, flamboyant, sexy offering with a dense ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of licorice, dried herbs, smoke, black currants, and blackberries. Beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, opulent, and forward, this is a juicy, succulent, seductive claret to drink over the next 10-12 years.

1996 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1996 Domaine de Chevalier certainly surpassed my expectations even though I would caution that I think Olivier Bernard has made better vintages since then. Deep in color, the nose is quite captivating with black fruit, brine and crushed stone. I like the strictness here -- very 1996 in style. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a svelte texture. The bead of acidity lends this tension although I found that finish surprisingly backward and just lacked that peacock's tail that would have warranted a higher score. Of course, the ...Read More »

It is the first vintage to include a new parcel located in Saint Christophe-des-Bardes. It has a typically sweet and ripe blueberry and cassis-scented bouquet that is well defined and potent.
