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.

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."

(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.

Goes on for minutes. Truly great. What a barrel sample."

(2/2016) 96 points Wine Spectator: "This has a gorgeous feel, with opulent fruit offset by racy herb notes and acidity, showing lemon sherbet, shortbread and white peach flavors backed by a salted butter and tarragon-laced finish, with hints of talc and fennel skitter in the background.

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.

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

A racy second wine of Haut-Brion with lots of tone and tension." (2/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is a wine of real substance and intensity, especially for a second wine. Powerful, deep and beautifully resonant, the 2014 offers notable pedigree. The tannins are imposing, so readers should plan on cellaring this for at least a few years.

This dense purple wine has the tell-tale notes of flowers and pencil shavings, and its broad aromatics are intense and totally captivating. Powerful, rich, and full, but less tannic than the 2005 and more opulent, this is a dazzling Branaire to drink between 2017-2035. (RP)" (2/2012) 95 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous aromas of dark berries and wet earth, with hints of graphite. Full body, with juicy, chewy tannins and a long rich, fruity, and succulent finish.

(RV)" (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. (SS)" (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.

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).

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

96 points Vinous: "I was deeply impressed with these wines from Domaine de Chevalier. The red has a slight upper hand in 2014, but both wines are distinctive and full of character. Olivier Bernard owns one of the crown jewels of Bordeaux, as these wines clearly make evident. The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier is a total knockout. Precise, brilliant and finely sculpted, the 2014 possesses superb intensity. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red berries, along with finessed but persistent tannins, give the wine its regal personality. The 2014 needs a number of years to shed some ...Read More »

2005 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

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.

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.

Wonderfully honeyed, fat fruit flavors are complemented by cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. The sexy oak treatment gives lift to the wine. A bit youthfully aggressive but very long on the back end, showing vanillin oak and a bit of warmth. But this one offers superb potential.

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.

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 »

2014 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe

96 points James Suckling: "This is real powerful and sexy with a voluptuous style of ripe fruit, mushrooms and wet earth. Leafy. Full and seductive. Better after 2021 but already fantastic." (2/2017) 96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Calon Ségur is a real show-stopper. Unusually ripe, powerful and seductive, the wine exudes class. Myriad shades of plum, sweet red cherry, pomegranate, spice and blood orange are all on display. Wild flowers, tobacco and host of more aromatic notes develop in the glass. Above all else, though, the 2014 is a wine of pure power and breadth. This is yet another fabulous showing f ...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 »

2003 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan Back In Stock!
2003 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

93 points James Suckling: "A wonderful nose of spices, dark fruits, and hot stones in the vineyard. On the palate it has a full body, displaying power and solidity. Beautiful polished tannins, but this is still a bit young. You can drink this now, but it will be better if you pull the cork in 2013." (3/2011) 93 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2006* Loads of blackberry and licorice with hints of meat and smoked oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of very ripe and exotic fruit. Very exotic and wild. Rich finish. Best after 2009. (JS)" (3/2006) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beauty of cassis, plum, tobacco leaf and spice ...Read More »

1995 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac

94 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous aromas of black licorice, currant and blackberry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very tight, yet with air it comes around wonderfully. Give it time. This was always one of the buys of the vintage. (JS, Web—2007)"

2002 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

92 points Wine Spectator: "A solid wine with berry, currant and mineral character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Racy. Alfred Tesseron is making excellent wine nearly every year now. One of the few 2002s better than 2001." (3/2005) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Cool aromas of blackcurrant, espresso and menthol. Then sweet and pliant in the mouth, with concentrated, very pure currant, chocolate and mint flavors. Wonderfully smooth for the vintage. Broadens out impressively on the back end, finishing with firm, ripe tannins. (ST)" (6/2005) Jancis Robinson: "Mid crimson. Very light nose. Solid and very e ...Read More »

2015 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) 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. It is the classic Léoville-Barto ...Read More »

2015 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

98-99 points James Suckling: "Hard to believe this. It has a minerality and intensity like a great white wine with so much chalky character that it gives an oyster shell flavor. Full and racy. Shaking my head in intrigue. Wonderfully silky tannins." (4/2016) 94-97 points Vinous: "One of the stars of the vintage, the 2015 Larcis Ducasse is intensely aromatic, silky and totally sensual from the very first taste. The purity of the fruit here is striking. Even so, it will be many years before the 2015 is ready to show all it's got. Today, it is the wine's total sense of harmony that is absolutely alluring.
