2015 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I absolutely loved the 2015 Léoville-Barton and this has everything you could want from a Left Bank Bordeaux. Cassis, smoked earth, graphite, tobacco leaf, and thrilling amounts of minerality all emerge from this inky colored, full-bodied, power-packed, brut of a Saint-Julien that holds everything together and stays pure, balanced and elegant on the palate. It has a lot of tannins, yet more than enough fruit. The 2015 is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot, brought up in 60% new French oak, and it needs 7-8 years of bottle age and will shine ...Read More »

2000 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien Top Pick!
2000 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

94 points Wine Spectator: "The nose shows loads of plum, spice and meat aromas, as well as hints of licorice. It's full-bodied, with firm, yet velvety textured tannins. It's big and rounded. If you can't afford Las Cases, try some of this. Some might call this a second wine, but it comes from a plot of vineyards not deemed worthy of Léoville Las Cases. So it's like its own estate. Best after 2009. *Ranked #14, Top 100 Wines of 2003* (JS)" (3/2003) 91 points James Suckling: "This is very open with plum and sweet tobacco notes, and a round and juicy body. Really just starting to open up. (JS)" (5/2012) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of th ...Read More »

2007 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
2007 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

95 points James Suckling: "Wow. Minerals, cedar, almost like warm stones in the heat. And then some spice. A wine that’s gorgeous, beautiful to taste now, but you know there’s so much more coming to it. Will be better in three to five years. But it’s already gorgeous—decant a couple hours in advance." (7/2012) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Slowly the potential of this impressive wine is coming out. It is rich, the new wood flavors blending with the ripe blackberry sweetness and tight tannins. Chocolate flavor power through this concentrated wine. *Top 100 Wines of 2010. Editor's Choice* (RV)" (4/2010) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Bo ...Read More »

2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

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 Jeb Dunnuck: "A final blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2014 Pontet-Canet is brilliant stuff, and I was able to taste this wine from barrel as well as multiple times from bottle, both at the estate and from a bottle purchased in the United States.

2016 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is phenomenal with a density and finesse that are hard to remember for this wine. Full-bodied, tight and polished. Seamless texture and salty undertones. Goes on for minutes. Truly great. What a barrel sample." (4/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Pape Clement is a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon this year, picked from 30 September until 19 October at 48 hectoliters per hectare. The first bottle that I tasted with Bernard Magrez and his team felt a little overdone, but I had a strong suspicion that it was not a representative bottle. A second bottle was m ...Read More »

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 »

2009 d'Issan, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Wonderfully perfumed with dark berry, mineral and chocolate character. Full body, great tannins and a long and racy finish. Very refined. Tight and racy." (3/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong effort from proprietor Emmanuel Cruse, d’Issan’s 2009 was fashioned from minuscule yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, and its 13.7% natural alcohol set a record at this estate. Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, it exhibits a classic Margaux fragrance of acacia flowers/violets, blueberries, cassis, licorice and camphor.

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 »

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 »

1998 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien Top Pick!
1998 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gruaud-Larose has fashioned an elegant, less rustic wine than previous vintages. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple. The bouquet offers aromas of plums, black raspberries, and cassis. Stylish, with medium to full body, sweet tannin, and excellent purity as well as overall symmetry, it will drink well between 2004-2016. (RP)" (4/2001) Vinous: "Moderately saturated ruby-red. Explosive aromas of plum, blackberry, tar, cocoa and grilled bread. Sweet and generous but a bit disjointed at the moment. Possesses strong, nicely delineated fruit...

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 »

2000 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac

Attractive chocolate, berry and currant aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with medium-fine tannins and a pretty berry, chocolate aftertaste. Seriously good value. Best after 2009. (JS)" (1/2003) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest Haut-Batailleys ever made (it certainly rivals the 1996), this deep ruby/purple-colored wine is a beauty. Notes of raspberries, liquified minerals, cassis, and tobacco jump from the glass of this attractive, velvety-textured wine. Some tannin is there, but it is abundantly fruity, low ...Read More »

2004 Lascombes, Margaux

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another brilliant effort from this estate, the 2004 Lascombes (a blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petit Verdot) exhibits a deep blue/purple hue along with a sweet perfume of blueberries, black raspberries, cherries, incense, smoke, and spring flowers. While opulent, underneath the full-bodied richness of fruit and depth is a structured wine. As it sits in the glass, an espresso roast character (no doubt from new oak) also emerges. Enjoy this pure, structured, fleshy beauty between 2010-2025. (RP)" (6/2007) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright ruby. Wild aromas a ...Read More »

Notes of cassis, licorice, crushed rocks, lead pencil shavings and graphite all emerge from this unctuous, ripe, pedal-to-the-metal beauty that's absolutely loaded with fruit and texture. Reminding me of the 2003, yet only fresher, don't miss this beauty. It should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 3-4 decades."

(JM)" (4/2017) 95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Looking at the 2016 Leoville Poyferre from barrel, this deep, inky-colored Saint-Julien doesn’t pull any punches and boasts serious amounts of ripe currant, blueberry, and cassis-like fruits, liquid violets, crushed rocks and graphite on the nose.

Firmly tannic and oaky, too, but comes across as soft and fleshy. *Highly Recommended*" (4/1992) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 exhibits a dark ruby color, with slight lightening at the edge, as well as plenty of earthy, black-cherry fruit nicely touched by sweet, toasty oak.

(4/2016) 95-97 points Vinous: "The 2015 Canon La Gaffelière is seriously impressive. Like all of Stephan von Neipperg's wines in this vintage, the Canon La Gaffelière is endowed with considerable richness and a sense of vertical structure. The significant presence of Cabernet Franc gives the wine striking aromatic lift, which it very much needs. Mocha, red cherry jam and sweet floral notes give the 2015 its soaring perfume.

Restrained aromas and flavors of red cherry, mint, licorice and violet. Offers good but not outstanding intensity of flavor but finishes sweet and suave. Not the last word in complexity or length but nicely made and likely to provide delicious early drinking. Stephane Derenoncourt consults here. (ID)" (5/2011)

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 »

2013 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is rich, with generous black plum and berry fruits. It has a structure that is full, ripe and that will sustain the fruitiness of the wine over many years. The sensation is of velvet, with some force behind it. This remarkable wine will develop well over the medium term and then age for many years. Drink from 2022. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (3/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "You really want to drink this the minute you taste it with chocolate, walnut and cedar aromas and flavors. Full to medium body, very refined and flavorful. Seamless structure. Stone, currant leaf and t ...Read More »

2009 Certan de May, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Wonderful concentration here, the wine has the most powerful wood spice, ripe and mineral tannins. It is impressive in every way, showing the total richness of the vintage." (8/2010) 95 points Vinous: "Deep purple-ruby. Knockout nose of black cherry, minerals, coffee liqueur and violet offers uncommon depth and complexity. The flavors of blackberry, black plum and minerals are complicated by a note of iron and given wonderful clarity and cut by harmonious, vibrant acidity. Finishes very long and pure, with distinctive balsamic nuances. There's lots of sweet fl ...Read More »

2014 Beychevelle, St-Julien

95 points James Suckling: "A very classical St. Julien that’s got good concentration and real elegance, too. Great black fruits on the nose with subtle oak, and the richness and dry tannins are balanced out beautifully. You could drink it now, but this will age beautifully." (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Beychevelle is dark, ample and yet also quite nuanced. Blue and purplish stone fruits, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice notes abound in this super-expressive Saint-Julien. There is lovely freshness and vivacity to the flavors, but this is a pretty intense, succulent style. (AG)" (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Thi ...Read More »

2001 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "What a perfumed, elegant, structured wine, with all the elements of fruit, wood, tannins just in the right place. It shows great tannins, powerful black and red berry fruits, denseness, and a classic, fresh aftertaste. (RV)" (12/2007) 93 points James Suckling: "A dense and decadent wine with chocolate, currant and licorice aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. A beautiful wine now. It shows the finesse and class of an aged Bordeaux." (10/2016) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This shows a rich and dense nose of blackberry, coffee and smoke. Full-bodied, with soft and round tannins ...Read More »
