2010 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best Pauillac I ever tasted (and this wine has been a revelation ever since they first introduced it), the 2010 from Latour represents 24% of their production. It is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44.5% Merlot and .5% Cabernet Franc. An amazingly opulent, round, delicious wine, and a great buy when they finally release it – assuming it comes in under a three-digit price – it possesses wonderfully silky tannins, classic black currant, cedar wood and forest floor notes, and rich, full-bodied opulence as well as a terrific purity and palate presence ...Read More »

2015 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is so sexy with superbly polished tannins that gives the wine super length and definition. Compacted and tight. Full body, tight yet flamboyant at the same time. Loving it."

2009 Giscours, Margaux

95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries, blackberries and flowers. Very beautiful. Full body, with a solid core of fruit and firm tannins. Balanced and refined. This is ultra-refined. Best wine from here since 1970. One of the great values of the vintage." (2/2012) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Ranked #32, Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2012* Dark and structured, this is a firm wine. It has a smoky wood character, powerful tannins over intensely ripe fruit. Acidity and sweetness balance to give a dense wine, powered with richness and destined to age for many years.

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 »

2005 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sexy, style of wine from the Lurtons at Brane-Cantenac, this wine (a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc) has a stunning nose of forest floor, licorice, blackcurrants, plums and spring flowers. Soft tannin, full-bodied opulence and beautifully textured, lush richness, make for a brilliant wine from this large, 180-acre vineyard. In spite of the wine’s stunning forward fragrance and lushness, the color still looks as if it is 3-4 years old, rather than a decade. This is a big-time winner in 2005 and should drink well ...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.

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.

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. (RV)" (6/2005) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Château Giscours vertical, the 2001 Château Giscours is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot picked ...Read More »

2014 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a huge wine. Rich, powerful and dense, yet remarkably precise, the 2014 boasts extraordinary density and fabulous balance. 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. Explosive and virile in style, the 2014 appears to have the pedigree to age well for several decades. It is without question one of the wines of the year. The blend is 65% Cab ...Read More »

2005 Kirwan, Margaux

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dense and dark, this is an extracted wine with polished fruit. What stops it going over the edge is the delicious sweet fruits, the dense structure and the elegance that gives it shape and aging potential." (6/2008) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Has loads of coffee, blackberry and cigar box aromas, turning to crushed blackberry. Full-bodied, with big, chewy tannins and an aftertaste of vanilla, blackberry and espresso. Mouthpuckering. Very concentrated and structured for this wine. Best after 2015."

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 »

2001 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

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.

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.

Muscular but toned and beautiful." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Pure Cabernet flavors are right at the front of this wine.

2013 Montrose, St-Estèphe

2011 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

Dusty tannins are integrated with juicy fruits seamlessly. The purest fruit flavors are allied to linear tannins in a precise yet generous way. The wine is evolving beautifully, but do not drink before 2020." (5/2014) 95 points James Suckling: "A wine with lots of ripe berries, verging on dried fruits.

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.

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* This is a finely fruity wine—all tangy acidity, crisp lemon and stone fruit. The wood aging shows in the notes of toast and burnt spice. It should all integrate well as it develops into a seriously ageworthy wine." (4/2015) 94-97 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* This crackles with energy, while a mix of white peach, yellow apple, Chartreuse, chamomile and green plum notes all mix together.

1998 Monbousquet, St-Émilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yields of 28-30 hectoliters per hectare are among the lowest in St.-Emilion, which no doubt accounts for the wine's explosive richness. The final blend, 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc, was bottled unfined and unfiltered after 18 months in 100% new oak, with aging on the lees.

2007 Climens, Barsac (375ml)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. Chateau Climens always tends to go into its shell after bottling, which is probably why I was not dishing out an even higher score to this still, spellbinding Barsac. The 2007 is endowed with a lovely bouquet: very pure with honey, a touch of orange-blossom and a touch of quince. The palate is very well-balanced with great purity and a dash of spice as well as a lovely viscous, botrytis-laden finish that possesses awesome weight and persistency.

Delicious now but will but better in a year or two." (7/2013) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A fine, perfumed wine which has ripe fruits, flavored with herbs and with fresh acidity. The tannins are dense but not overwhelming, giving a well-balanced wine, already integrated.

2014 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. A dark and smoky wine of an impressively powerful structure, this is packed with tannins and rich fruits that burst out of the glass. With this combination, the wine is likely to age well. (RV)" (4/2015) 93-94 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous second wine for Haut-Brion with firm and savory tannins. Full, refined and layered with meat, tobacco, dark fruit and earth. Serious." (3/2015) 91-94 points Vinous: "A huge, voluptuous wine, the 2014 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion wraps around the palate with serious depth and power. The Merlot is especially opulent and concentrated. Super-ripe dark red cherry, ...Read More »

1989 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

92 points Wine Spectator: "Intense and exotic; ripe and rich botrytis flavors explode on the palate to a long finish. Very sweet and full in body, it packs in the spice, white pepper, cream, coffee, quince and dried apricot notes." (4/1995) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Although loosely structured, the 1989 reveals plenty of intense, honeyed fruit in a rich, authoritative, full-bodied format. A big, powerhouse, sweet, heavy wine with a penetrating fragrance of honey and flowers, this generously endowed wine already drinks well, but can easily last for 15-20 years. (RP)" (1/1998) Jancis Robinson: "Deepish gold. Complex honeyed richn ...Read More »

1989 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "After a period of prolonged disjointedness, this wine has pulled itself together. The color is deep straw, and the wine displays an intense perfume of creme brulee custard, baked apple pie, and sweet, ripe pineapples and pears. Full-bodied, rich, alcoholic, and fat, with low acidity and considerable sweetness, this is a luxuriously rich, unctuously-textured, heavyweight Sauternes that should become more civilized with age. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2025. (RP)" (1/1998) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Lively, complex, fresh aromas of tropical fruit, honey and spicy oak. Sweet and viscous ...Read More »

2006 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc

91 points James Suckling: "This is racy for a 2006 with plenty of tobacco, berries and hints of mushroom. Light, stylish earthy character. 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. Sweet plum and red and black currant fruit, intermixed with notes of resiny pine forest and for ...Read More »

2013 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

90-93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pichon-Lalande is quite unusual in that for the first time, it is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Direct, expressive and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2013 is alive from the very first taste. Black cherry, dark raspberry, mint, violets and cloves all meld together in an absolutely exquisite wine. The 2013 finishes with outstanding depth, vibrancy and pure nuance. This is one of the standouts of the vintage. Tasted twice. (AG)" (4/2014) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Unusual for a Bordeaux, this is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has plenty of tannins, although they are embedded in ...Read More »

Bid on this bottle of 1997 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe ((89-90ST)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very good ruby-red. Complex, expressive aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and animal fur. Supple but with good vinosity; ripe acids are in harmony with the wine fruit. Finishes with mouthcoating tannins and a peppery note. The top wine of St. Estephe in '97 based on my tastings this spring. (ST)" (06/1999)

2003 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

93 points James Suckling: "The warm vintage of 2003 gives this loads of fruit, like raspberries and strawberry jam. Full-bodied and very fresh with soft, round tannins. A long and yummy wine. Delicious now but please wait to pull the cork until at least 2013." (7/2012) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I remember being worried about how well the 2003 Haut-Bailly would turn out, but it has aged beautifully. Made from a final blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, it currently offers fresh tobacco leaf, red and black currant notes, and hints of burning embers and charcoal. Having put on wei ...Read More »

1994 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion

92 points Wine Spectator: "Best Troplong ever. Impressive dark color and loads of mineral, berry and spice aromas lead to a full-bodied and very tannic (though the tannins are fine) mouthful. Very closed and tight now, this needs time to come around." (1/1997) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful wine, with notes of tapenade, licorice, spice box, black currants, and toasty oak, this medium-bodied wine has shed a lot of its tannin and exhibits excellent purity, a real sweetness on the attack, a bit of firmness on the back end, but impressive concentration and length. Anticipated maturity: Now-2016. (RP-Borde ...Read More »

1994 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

90 points Wine Spectator: "Chewy and big, this delivers bright plum, berry and cherry, with a hints of vanillla, on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with tannins that build on the palate. (JS)" (1/1997) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest 1994s from the Pessac-Leognan appellation, Haut Bailly's 1994 possesses a dark ruby color with purple hues. The sweet, blackcurrant, earthy, and mineral-scented nose, and ripe, medium-bodied, fleshy flavors represent the quintessentially elegant style of red Graves. The wine is rich yet ethereal in the mouth. This charming wine exhibits no hard edges (no small achi ...Read More »
