2016 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a powerful wine, with superb tannins and blackberry fruits. It has a dense texture allied to stylish fruitiness and acidity. The result is a wine with the potential to age over a long period of time, while probably showing well starting in 2028. (RV)" (4/2017) 96-99 points Wine Spectator: "This packs some serious punch and drive, with a terrific core of blueberry, açai and plum reduction notes, backed by waves of graphite and roasted apple wood. Has the pleasantly chewy feel typical of St.-Julien, along with an extra-racy graphite edge. (JM)" (4/2017) 96 points Decanter: "Restrained bu ...Read More »

2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This is all about the finish with a sweet-tobacco, berry and light milk-chocolate character. Full body, very fine tannins and a juicy finish. Love the intensity and finesse at the end. Lots of energy. Could better the exquisite 2014." (4/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot that matured in 75% new oak. It has 13.3% alcohol this year. It has an extraordinarily pure bouquet with blackberry, briary, touches of pencil shaving and cedar aromas--quintessential Grand-Puy-Lacoste, basically. The palate is medium-bodi ...Read More »

2016 Beychevelle, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Beychevelle is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc cropped at 45 hectoliters per hectare between 3 October and 18 October. It is matured in 50% new oak. Furthermore, it is the first vintage to be matured in the new chichi winery whose glass exterior overlooks the passing traffic on the D2. It has a very pure, fragrant bouquet with black cherries, cassis, cedar and wet limestone, extremely precise to the point where you might think it was from the Right Bank (logical given the proportion of Merlot ...Read More »

2016 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* This wine is ripe, perfumed and firmly textured. It has balance, concentrated tannins and already just the right sense of wood and structure. It will obviously last; try it in 12–15 years. (RV)" (4/2017) 96-97 points James Suckling: "A solid red with currant and blackberry character. Full body, soft tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows richness and excitement. Juicy and sexy undertone to this."

2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "A stunning wine for this vintage although it’s still a bit shy on the nose (more spice than fruit showing than now). There’s wet earth, too, but on the palate it’s bursting with ripe yet subtle flavors. Very long and complex finish that goes on and on." (2/2017) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*** Cellar Selection *** This is a finely structured wine with dark tannins and intense black fruits. The estate, with its biodynamically grown fruit, has given an impressively pure wine, packed with tight serious tannins and a fine structure of black-plum skins and intense acidity. It is direct, ...Read More »

2005 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien Top Pick!
2005 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This tastes of great Cabernet Sauvignon, with its black currant, cedar and herbs and fresh, juicy acidity. It is as fresh as it is rich, but it has a structure of dense tannins that balances the wine. This is one of the best wines from Gruaud-Larose for several years. (RV)" (6/2008) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "Licorice spice and tough black tannins form tight boundaries around this wine. Within them, sweet red fruit lends a gracious impression, gentle and refined. Age will allow the wine to expand as the tannins relent, but this offers impressive drinking now, particularly if decante ...Read More »

2013 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2013 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

96 points James Suckling: "Dense yet agile Smith with dried apple, lemon, aniseed, and gunpowder aromas and flavors. Some stones too. Full body, very racy and fine. 90% savuignon blanc, 5% sauvignon gris and 5% semillon. Drink or hold." (2/2016) 96 points Wine Spectator: "This has a gorgeous feel, with opulent fruit offset by racy herb notes and acidity as lemon sherbet, shortbread and white peach flavors are backed by a salted butter– and tarragon-laced finish. Hints of talc and fennel skitter in the background. Seriously long and still a touch youthful on the finish, this is one for the cellar. Sauvignon Bl ...Read More »

2016 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-98 points Wine Spectator: "The deep well of gorgeous cassis, blueberry paste and blackberry puree flavors will carry this for the long haul. Shows a terrific graphite underpinning and a flash of cold charcoal. This is a big one. (JM)" (4/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Leoville-Poyferre is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Didier Cuvelier told me that color leeched out naturally and he conducted an 8 day pre-fermentation maceration.

2014 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "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. (RV)" (4/2015) 96 points James Suckling: "Clear and vivid with sliced lemons and green apples on the nose. Flows through to a medium to full body, tangy acidity and a long and delicious finish. Give this super white at least two or three years to come together in the bottle." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc is nearly seamless, with striking textural depth and terr ...Read More »

2007 Climens, Barsac (Previously $150)

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. This is a slice of heaven in a glass, but it definitely needs time to r ...Read More »

2016 Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "Extremely long and erudite with crushed stones, blackberries and blueberries. Hints of fresh herbs. Full-bodied, tight and polished. The balance and beauty are amazing. Salty and minerally. More polished than the 2015. Wait and see. From biodynamic grapes." (4/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Les Carmes Haut Brion is a blend of 41% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Merlot, with 13.8% alcohol and a pH of 3.55, the lowest acidity for many years. It was vinified in their Philippe Starck-designed "submarine" (this is what their aesthetically arresting winery looks ...Read More »

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.

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 »

2001 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux Top Pick!
2001 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Brane-Cantenac vertical at the château, the 2001 Brane-Cantenac is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It has impressive lift on the nose: blackberry, raspberry and minerals, a bouquet that is captivating. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a core of black fruit, spice and licorice with a lovely peacock's tail on the finish. This is a Margaux with a skip in its step, more light-hearted and carefree than the 2000. I have always adored this wine and it is showing extremely well with 14 years on the ...Read More »

2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

94 points James Suckling: "A wine with blueberry and mineral aromas follows through to a full body, with fine tannins and a juicy finish. Best for years from here. Needs at least three years of bottle age to soften. Could be better than 2009 in the long run." (2/2013) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry an ...Read More »

Juicy and muscular wine. Needs three or four years to open. Beautiful." (2/2017) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Fragrant and perfumed, this wine is the epitome of great Cabernet Sauvignon. It is fruity, juicy yet with serious concentrated tannins. There is spice from the wood aging along with a dash of pepper, all the while just bringing out the beautiful black-currant flavors.

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. It is the classic Léoville-Barto ...Read More »

2014 Figeac, St-Emilion

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* The classic blend for Figeac with its 32% of Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Cabernet Franc gives a beautifully dense wine with great tannins. The wine is perfumed while the complex tannins are finely cushioned by the generous black fruits and acidity. It is a wine for long-term aging. Drink from 2026. (RV)" (4/2017) 96 points James Suckling: "The aromas of blackcurrants and fresh forest floor are evocative. Oyster shells and stones. Turns to blackcurrants. Medium to full body and firm and silky tannins that are polished and coat your mouth. The palate is ever dense a ...Read More »

2014 La Conseillante, Pomerol

96 points James Suckling: "Classical elegance in an uncompromising form, whereby the richness is beautifully interwoven with the dry tannins. The finish very long, savory and complex. A lot of delicate spicy and olive notes make this really complex." (2/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 La Conseillante has a well-defined bouquet with brambly red berry fruit, minerals, touches of seaweed and light incense aromas that develop fine intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. This Pomerol is very well poised with perfectly judged acidity. Whilst not a match for Titans lik ...Read More »

2016 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

98-99 points James Suckling: "I have been waiting for this for a long time. It’s a remake of the legendary 1990 Pichon Baron. Full body, ultra-polished yet powerful tannins and a glorious finish. The will evolve beautifully. The core of fruit and tannins are great. A truly great Pichon Baron." (4/2017) 96-99 points Wine Spectator: "Has the pure, fresh, racy feel of the vintage, which is even more admirable considering the depth of the red currant, plum and cherry preserve flavors at the core and the power of the structure on the back end, pulling in accents of graphite and loam. A thumper of a Pauillac. (JM) ...Read More »

Needs at least four to five years to really come together but so wonderful. Not the amazing 2009 but clearly outstanding." (11/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses.

2012 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Firmly tannic in character, this wine is dry and extracted. There's potential for this powerful, impressive wine to bear the wine's very dry character with the weight of its fruit." (4/2013) 92 points Decanter: "Dense black-red, firm, quite spicy Cabernet Sauvignon, both ripeness and firmness is there, elegance over power and a good future." (10/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics, Léoville-Barton’s 2012 is a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine.

(AG)" (2/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "A very well-made, modern wine with ripe cherry and cassis notes but rather discrete oak.

Incredible length. A wine that you want to drink now." (2/2017) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a great wine. It has all the elements in place to produce a wine that will last for years: powerful fruit, rich tannins and a structure that is built to last. This is elegant, impressive and concentrated.

With sweet flavors, medium body, outstanding concentration, and impressive purity, this finely-etched Pessac-Leognan should hit its peak in 4-5 years, and drink well over the following 12-14+. (RP)" (6/2004) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated medium ruby. Highly aromatic nose of dark berries, leather, tar, tobacco and violet.

Relatively reserved on the nose then a burst of intense flavour on the palate. Bittersweet Seville oranges and vigorous zesty spice on the long finish.

Large-scale, ample and totally flamboyant in style, the 2014 is going to need time to fully come together, but it is striking even today. (AG)" (2/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "The dark, savory, earthy and plum aromas plus the serious tannins here give this wine a lot of character, but it really needs a couple of years to open up.

2008 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that came in at 13.09% alcohol, it is a surprisingly intense effort displaying a marvelous texture, plenty of black currant, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning purity as well as density.

Now this has quite a powerful bouquet for Gazin, more heightened fruit compared to recent vintages with blackberry, briary and pressed flower aromas that are well defined (although my sample demanded two or three minutes to really find its voice).

Firm on the palate, but seems only moderately ripe and lacking in nuance. This has an austerity without offering the promise of richness and personality to come. Where's the sweetness of ripe fruit?

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest as well as longest-lived wines of the vintage, this opaque purple-colored 1994 needs 7-10 years of cellaring. This rich, impressive, full-bodied wine represents the finest Pontet-Canet produced since the 1961. This full-bodied, purely made wine is crammed with black currant fruit, as well as forbiddingly tannic and backward. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. (RP)" (1/1998) 89-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very good full color. Black cherry and shoe polish on the nose, with notes of menthol and nutty, pungent oak. Minerally, rich and sweet, but with a firm, fresh cabernet ...Read More »

2001 Suduiraut, Sauternes

98 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #9 on the Top 100 Wines of 2004* Gorgeous aromas of honey, passion fruit, mango and candied lemon rind. Full-bodied and ultraconcentrated, yet balanced and refined. It lasts for minutes on the palate. This has just about everything in the right place. Stunning. (JS)" (9/2004) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium yellow-gold. Flamboyantly ripe, complex nose combines pineapple, apricot, toffee, clove and vanilla. Hugely sweet and rich, with deep, powerful flavors of honey, marzipan and toffee. A major mouthful of wine, with great lingering sweetness. Today, this makes the Rieusse ...Read More »

2009 Siran, Margaux (1.5L)

93 points James Suckling: "Blueberries and minerals, with floral undertones follow through to a full body and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Subtle and structured. Try after 2018." (2/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the vertical held at the property, the 2009 Château Siran no longer displays the sur-maturité that was evident just after bottling and seems to have settled down with scents of black plum, spice, blackcurrants and graphite, the latter lending it an almost Brane-Cantenac like veneer. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, nicely focused with that graphite theme continuing. Fr ...Read More »

2014 Clarte de Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

95-96 points James Suckling: "Shows excellent depth and richness with sliced apple, apricot and pineapple character. Big and rich. Excellent. This is pretty amazing. 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Sémillon." (3/2015) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "The quinine, lemon chiffon and white asparagus notes are gliding together already, with a warm macadamia nut accent adding texture and weight to the finish. Still a little youthfully raw at the very end, but shows lovely concentration and length. Tasted non-blind. (JM)" (3/2015) 90-92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Le Clarte de Haut-Brion is unusually dense in this vintage, the result of a brief heat wave ...Read More »

2015 du Tertre, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A wine with definition and refinement. Hints of tobacco and chocolate. Full body, super fine and flavorful. Juicy and savory. The walnut and spice on the end is gorgeous." (4/2016) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. While the tannins are firm and dry, the fruit is just as important. The black plum-skin flavors are rich and dense, while the wine ends on a lifted note of black currant. (RV)" (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 du Tertre is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% each of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, picked 9 September until 9 October, matured in around 47% new oak.

2016 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "A dense and powerful white with wonderful depth and phenolic tension. Shows very pretty sliced-apple, lemon and pear character. Excellent finish. 90% Sauvignon Blanc with the rest Semillon and Sauvignon Gris. Excellent follow-up to the 2015." (4/2017) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is already beautiful. With spice, great swathes of lemon and crisp apple fruit, it is structured while also immediately appealing in its elegant purity. It will develop over many years; try to wait until 2025. (RV)" (4/2017) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Smith-Haut-Lafitte 2016 Blanc is the classic blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc ...Read More »

1990 Suduiraut, Sauternes

95 points Wine Spectator: "Botrytis bomb. Gold color. Loads of spicy, almond and toffee character with pineapple fruit. Full-bodied, very sweet and very, very ripe. Blistering long finish. A bit rustic, but amazing. Can age as long as you like. 90% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. (JS)" (8/2000) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light copper color. Extravagant, expressive aromas of tropical fruits, honey, smoked meat and grilled nuts. Thick, sweet and glyceral in the mouth (15.3% alcohol), at once honeyed and tangy. Very long and very youthful on the aftertaste. Offers considerable potential. 92+ Points (ST) ...Read More »

2014 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Vinous: "The wonderfully nuanced, finessed 2014 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande exudes pedigree. Crème de cassis, licorice, lavender, licorice and sweet spices are front and center, while beams of supporting tannins and acidity give the wine its energy and overall tension. All of the elements are simply in the right place. Powerful and also remarkably delicate, the 2014 Pichon Comtesse might very well be the wine of the vintage on the Left Bank. Don't miss it! (AG)" (2/2017) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Warm and ripe, this is a beautifully balanced wine. It is packed ...Read More »

2004 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Editors' Choice*** As so often, Léoville-Barton stands out for its style and elegance. With fresh fruit and acidity allied to generous tannins, it sums up the character of the 2004 vintage. Very classic in Bordeaux terms: not hugely powerful, but delicious. (RV)" (6/2007) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the French Embassy in London. At six years of age, the Leoville Barton is developing quite a refined bouquet with brambly red-berried fruits laced with cedar and a touch of sage. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, ripe red fruits, a generous dose of cedar and firm, dry ...Read More »
