2015 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "Shows amazing depth of fruit with fabulous polish and length. Electric acidity. Full body, very integrated and refined tannins. Phenolic finesse shows here. Great finish. It lasts for minutes. Best young Pape Clément I have tasted. Grows in the glass."

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

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Leoville Barton is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot picked between 19-22 September and 28 September until 5 October for the Merlot and Cabernet respectively. 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.

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.

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."

(RP)" (4/2003) Wine Spectator: "Beautiful aromas of spices, berries and plums. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a clean finish." (3/2003) K&L Notes: Very focused and quite mineral on the palate.

(Web Only—2007)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Readers should note that this property has significantly improved the quality of its wines, and now deserves a serious look in nearly every vintage. The 1996 Kirwan is a highly-extracted, rich, medium-bodied wine with a deep ruby/purple color, and ripe cassis fruit intermixed with a touch of new oak, prunes, and spice.

One of the best wines from here in years. Try after 2017."

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.

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 »

2012 Gazin, Pomerol

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This may be the first time in the history of this estate that Gazin has been made from 100% Merlot. That was the favored cepage (grape varietal) in 2012, and Gazin has produced a powerful, concentrated, dark plum/purple-hued wine displaying notes of balsam wood, forest floor, camphor, blackberries and cassis. As the wine sits in the glass, hints of white chocolate and espresso roast (no doubt from the barrels used) emerge. Full, rich and intense, this impressive 2012 reminds me of the 2001, only slightly more masculine. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and ...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.

2011 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* So smooth, this is a rich, grandiose wine. Although it is full of black currant fruits and spice flavors, the texture is most impressive. 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. Full and chewy with ripe, round, chewy tannins. It needs lots of bottle age. A wine of steel. From biodynamically grown grapes, ...Read More »

2012 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

Given its structure, the wine will obviously age well, even if it is drinkable in the medium term." (4/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "A pretty core of ripe-berry, currant and mineral character to this red with a full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish to add. Creamy texture. Better in 2017." (2/2015) 94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Pichon-Longueville Baron is wonderfully aromatic and textured in the glass. Scents of smoke, pipe tobacco and cedar meld into a core of intense dark fruit.

2012 Montrose, St-Estèphe

It has something of the classic severity of a wine from this estate, but that’s mitigated by the ripe, generous blackberry fruitiness and the final freshness of a 2012. A great success, to drink from 2022." (5/2015) 94 points James Suckling: "Fascinating aromas of blackberries with cacao and buttery notes.

(JS)" (1/1998) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This quintessentially elegant wine reveals a deep ruby/purple color, and an attractive smoky, black currant, mineral, and floral-scented nose. There are sweet, ripe, lush flavors, medium body, ripe tannin, and a velvety texture that borders on opulence. There is no heaviness to the wine.

The wine is structured while still remaining very approachable." (4/2012) 92 points James Suckling: "Big and massive wine for this appellation. Some may say too much but loads of fruit underneath. Full and chewy. Needs two to three years to soften."

There's a hint of tobacco and ripe plum on the palate, and the aftertaste promises juiciness." (4/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "A beautiful red with plums and chocolate and hints of licorice. Full body, with super polished tannins. Ripe fruit with forest undergrowth, dark fruits and sweet tobacco. Goes on for minutes." (4/2013) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While the 2012 Haut-Bailly is not as powerful or rich as the 2009 and 2010, it is classically elegant, racy and noble.

2005 d'Armailhac, Pauillac

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Located in the north of Pauillac, between Mouton and Pontet-Canet, this 123-acre estate is also part of G.F.A. Baronne Philippine de Rothschild. The aroma balances meaty fruit and mineral scents, and while the pungent red fruit is always there, the tannins seem to increase their intensity with air. They cover the pure black cherry flavor like a powerful skin, deep and plush with an iron-knuckle punch. The tannins don't go away, but their inner velvet eventually wins out. This has improved significantly since the en primeur tastings and will continue to e ...Read More »

There is no better evidence of this than in the splendidly rich, highly extracted, immensely impressive 1989 Domaine de l'Eglise. Black/ruby in color, with fabulous, highly extracted flavors suggestive of prunes and black plums, gobs of soft tannin as well as alcohol, yet decent acidity for the vintage, this rich, broad-shouldered Pomerol is the most massive wine I have yet tasted from the Domaine de l'Eglise.

Historically, this estate was part of the famed Leoville property before it was divided into three (Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Barton round out the trio). Classed as a Second Growth in 1855, their terroir is "legendary," according to Jancis Robinson, who also said, "The estate is a consistent, quality performer, creating wines that are profoundly seductive and have a defined fleshiness."

(JS)" (3/2008) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A surprisingly powerful wine for La Fleur, which is better known for its light, fruity, flowery style of wines, their 2005 is super-concentrated, with loads of minerality, moderately high tannins, and impressive extract and richness. Forget this wine for another 3-4 years, and drink it over the following 15. (RP)" (6/2015)

2012 Le Carillon de L'Angelus, St-Émilion

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. A dark wine with rich, fruity blackberry flavors. It's very juicy in character with an opulent, soft texture, reflecting the ripeness of the grapes this vintage. (RV)" (4/2013) 90-91 points James Suckling: "A solid wine with blueberries and minerals. It’s full and tannic yet polished and refined. Second wine of Angelus." (4/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "His second wine, the 2012 Carillon de L’Angélus, has turned out well for proprietor Hubert de Boüard. Dense ruby purple, it is soft and round, with deep fruit, light tannin and a nicely textured mouthfeel. This is a serious second wine to drink ov ...Read More »

2014 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Bright and juicy, with a core of plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit, backed by hints of anise and fruitcake. The apple wood edge on the finish gives this spine. Very solid. (Web only-2015)" 93-94 points James Suckling: "Very sexy and refined with blackberries and blueberries. Full-bodied with ultra-fine and integrated tannins." (3/2015) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is an attractive, already fruity wine. It has layers of fresh acidity that shoot through the firm, dry, tannic structure. The finish offers abundant fruit flavors and woody smokiness." (3/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Malescot St. Exupery 2014 ...Read More »

2004 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Foursquare, powerful wine that shows great ripeness, solid, firm red berry fruits, a touch of mint, and black, almost impenetrable tannins. Expect this impressive wine to age for 10-15 years. (RV)" (6/2007) 93 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2007* Shows beautiful aromas of crushed berries and currants, with hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with lovely currant, licorice and mint. Long and caressing. Very refined and balanced red. Another winner from Pontet-Canet. Best after 2011. (JS)" (3/2007) 91 points James Suckling: "Firm and fresh with currant bush and sweet tobacco character that turns to cigar box ...Read More »

1989 Rieussec, Sauternes Back In Stock!
1989 Rieussec, Sauternes

97 points James Suckling: "Dense and amazing with a thick mouthfeel and so much dried apple, apricot, and lemon character. It's long, sweet and intense. So much going on here. Love it." (12/2012) 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 shoul ...Read More »

2003 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac

93 points James Suckling: "Slightly cooked fruit on the nose, with a toasted oak and meaty character. Full bodied, with round and chewy tannins and loads of fruit. Big and burly, I like it." (3/2011) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Loads of licorice and currants follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of refined tannins and a long, long finish. This is very structured and layered. Beauty. Better than the 2000." (3/2006) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dense ruby/purple-colored 2003 is surprisingly fresh and crisp, displaying no signs of the vintage’s extreme heat. This full-bodied, powerful, rich, backward, dense, tannic effort revea ...Read More »

2002 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* A little more volume and a bit more layering make this one our pick of the present bunch. It is sturdy without being heavy or coarse, and it is enlivened by acid without being too firm. Its wonderfully proportioned mix of deep and expansive curranty fruit, dark chocolate, cola and seamlessly fit oak are the stuff of classic Pauillac, and there are no caveats or apologies as to vintage needed here. If so rich and carefully balanced as to offer plenty to like even now, the wine has the stamina and structure grow only better and better with time ...Read More »

1983 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

1996 Haut Bages Liberal, Pauillac

Wine Spectator: "A rather discreet style, with understated currant and berry aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a silky, fruity aftertaste. Needs time to open a bit." (1/1999)
