Bordeaux

We're extremely focused on Bordeaux - several staff members fly over to the region on multiple trips each year to taste new vintages from barrel and older vintages from bottle. K&L also enjoys excellent relationships with negociants and châteaux, and over the years we've established outstanding allocations on the top wines. It hasn't hurt that one of K&L's owners is a complete Bordeaux fanatic and our main buyer. The top red wines are typically blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and the white are primarily Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, though the blends vary substantially depending on which part of the region you're talking about. Within Bordeaux you'll also find the sweet wines of Sauternes. Interested in great Bordeaux? Look no further...

Like his other 2015s, there is a nascent Burgundy-like allure on the nose that is beguiling in purity and beautifully defined, with scents of small dark cherries, Indian ink and a touch of cassis, an undertow of minerals that will surely become more perceptible as the wine ages in bottle.

Ch. L’Avocat is from the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation.

2014 Grand Bateau Blanc, Bordeaux

This blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon is a stellar value from Bordeaux. Grapes are hand-harvested and the juice undergoes a cold soak before 75% of it is barrel fermented and the other 25% is fermented in stainless steel. Crisp and mineral with vanilla tones on the nose, the palate is nicely rounded and full with citrus and tropical fruit. It is delicious with lighter foods and also quite refreshing on its own.

2000 Bordeaux Tasting Lot
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2000 Bordeaux Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2000 Lascombes, Margaux (90RP), 1-bottle of 2000 Pavillon Rouge, Margaux (94WS, (89-92ST)), 1-bottle of 2000 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (96RP, 96WE, 95WS, 94ST, 93JS, 92W&S), and 1-bottle of 2000 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (95DC, 94RP, 93ST, 93WS, 90WE). Of the 2000 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: " I find this to be a spectacular Pichon Lalande. Dense purple in color, with loads of coffee, mocha, creme de cassis, and chocolate notes, this is a somewhat unusual blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, and a whooping 10% Petit Verdot, with a little bit of Cabernet Franc. The Petit Verdot certainly gives the wine more of a tapenade, floral note, which I think can be interpreted by some as herbal. (RP)" (06/2010)

2000 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
2000 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

95 points Decanter: "Intense, focused, cedary nose. Super-ripe and sumptuous, highly concentrated, but has spice and vigour to counter the fruit. Massive, pungent; full of life and nuance. Long, vibrant finish. Drink from 2012. (19 points)" (11/2010) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Upgraded in score over my original rating, which was several points lower, Alfred Tesseron has done a remarkable job since 1994 with Pontet-Canet, which has been hitting first-growth levels since 2003. But the 2000 also shows exceptionally well. In need of another decade of cellaring, this dense purple wine has a classic nose of i ...Read More »

2012 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "This is amazing for the second wine with incredible white truffle, stone and currant character. Purity of fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, silky and refined. Fantastic length. Better in 2018 but almost impossible to resist now. Incredible." (2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another brilliant example from administrator Thomas Duroux and his team, the intense second wine, Palmer’s 2012 Alter Ego (51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot), offers up plenty of blackberry and crème de cassis notes along with some spring flowers, licorice and subtle background oak. Opulentl ...Read More »

2015 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This is tight and very focused with gorgeous blackberry, blueberry and stone aromas and flavors. Such purity of fruit here. Full and very, very polished. Compacted and compressed." (4/2016) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Shows very pretty fruit, with boysenberry and raspberry confiture notes rolling along, picking up hints of anise and fruitcake. There's lush toast and velvety structure, but the energy is good enough to let it all play out harmoniously. (JM)" (4/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château Fleur Cardinale is a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 100% ne ...Read More »

2004 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
2004 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A top-notch effort from proprietress Helene Garcin, Haut-Bergey’s 2004 exhibits an evolved, cedary, smoky, tobacco, and sweet cherry-scented bouquet offered in a medium-bodied, supple-textured style." (6/2007) Decanter: "Very ripe, modern style. Pronounced colour. Creamy, cassis cordiale and spice fragrance. Rich, chunky fruit with a firm tannic structure." (4/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Sexy, rather wild aromas of roasted raspberry and game. Supple but firm-edged, with good grip to the raspberry and mineral flavors. There's good fruit here but limited fat and a restrained sweetne ...Read More »

2014 Roquefort Blanc, Bordeaux Top Pick!
2014 Roquefort Blanc, Bordeaux

Wine Enthusiast: "Still young, this wine is showing intense herbaceous characteristics that need to soften. Plenty of fruit between the texture needs to fill out. Hints of apples, pears and quince are all there. Drink from 2016. (RV)" (9/2015) K&L Notes: 85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Semillon

2009 Tronquoy-Lalande, St-Estèphe Top Pick!
2009 Tronquoy-Lalande, St-Estèphe

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 100 Wines of 2012* The tannins are very fine, with rich fruitcake and smoky flavors. Red berry and black plums give a fruity character, along with delicious acidity. The wine is structured while still remaining very approachable. (RV)" (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." (7/2014) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Tronquoy Lalande, a blend of 51% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot, is the finest wine they have yet produced. It reveals an opul ...Read More »

2015 Capbern, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Despite the obvious fruitiness, this wine has an impressive amount of structure, which gives a dry core to the juicy black currant fruits and tight acidity. There is a touch of extraction in the black coffee flavors, although the main character is fruit." (4/2016) 90-91 points James Suckling: "Very fine and polished with lovely integration and finesse. Medium to full body, fresh finish. Harmony here." (4/2016) 90 points Decanter: "Great freshness of bountiful, ripe fruit and fine ripeness from 68% Cabernet. A lovely wine from perfectly managed vineyards." (4/2016) 88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Capbern (formerly Capb ...Read More »

2014 Reynon Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux Top Pick!
2014 Reynon Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux

88-90 points Vinous: "The 2014 Reynon Blanc, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, shows lovely varietal character with more of an emphasis on texture rather than grassy/green flavors. Citrus and floral notes come forward in an attractive, aromatic white to drink young. There is a lot to like in this expressive Sauvignon Blanc from proprietors Denis et Florence Dubourdieu. Best of all, the Blanc should be a fabulous value. (AG)" (4/2015)

2015 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "Very solid and powerful with dried mushroom and wet earth aromas and flavors. Complex. Full and chewy yet so polished and long. Spicy, meat and gorgeous. Most serious Alter Ego ever. More inner Ego now!" (4/2016) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a beautifully perfumed wine. It has ripe black fruits that shoot through the richness. It has a velvet texture, rounded and already smooth. There is just a shot of tannin and the hint of wood at the end. (RV)" (4/2016) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Alter Ego is round, succulent and also a terrific introduction to the vintage. Raspberry jam, cinnamon, flowers and ...Read More »
