(RP)" (6/2007) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Sexy, rather wild aromas of roasted raspberry and game.

Supple and sweet, with red berry fruit complicated by herbs and black olive. Finishes with suave, smooth, nicely ripe tannins.

1996 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Clos du Marquis is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon (lower than recent vintages), 33% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot (that usually goes into Leoville-Las Cases). Much like the 1996 Potensac that I tasted alongside at the château, the nose is youthful and backward with blackberry, freshly tilled soil, cedar and tobacco scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth entry, plenty of crisp and pure black fruit laced with cedar, harmonious and long.

2000 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 2000 tasting in London. This is reticent on the nose at first, but opens up nicely with time, blackberry, plum, black coffee, cedar and a slight estuarine note. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tannins on the entry, firm backbone and good depth. Stern and masculine, a saline note towards the cedar and tobacco scented, sappy finish. This is a great showing for Chasse Spleen and comes recommended for the vintage. Drink 2012-2030. Tasted March 2010.

2007 Raymond-Lafon, Sauternes (375ml)

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer: "Pungent botrytized aromas of apricot, pineapple, orange zest and licorice, lifted by floral high tones. Dense, spicy and thick on the palate, offering superb purity of fruit framed and lifted by ineffable spicy and minty high tones. Not a particularly fat or powerful style; in fact, the perfectly integrated acidity gives shape to the middle palate and extends the finish, which displays late botrytis notes of barley sugar and honey. A beauty in the making: I tasted the final blend, but the wine will not be bottled until Septe... Read More »

It needs another year or two to soften but it’s already gorgeous to drink. Decant an hour or two before."

There is, though, a black currant fruit flavor that shows through after the wine has been in the mouth for a while, and the aftertaste has fine acidity. This should develop well.

The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is beautifully balanced in the mouth, perhaps just a little conservative but with great precision and length.

Nicely oaked, ripe but not over-ripe, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as sweet scents of pain grille, kirsch liqueur, and black currants. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, and rich, with good glycerin as well as freshness, and a long, heady finish, this succulent offering should be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years." (4/2006)

2000 Clos de l'Oratoire, St-Emilion

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ripe, well-made, and slightly over-rated in my report written seven years ago, this 2000 exhibits lots of black currants, cherries, smoked herbs, and spice in a full-bodied, round, generous, fully mature style." (6/2010) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Subtle, yet rich. Refined, yet powerful. Full-bodied, with super silky tannins, yet it's elegant and caressing. Joy to taste. Fantastic l'Oratoire. From the same people who bring you La Mondotte and Canon-La Gaffelière. Best after 2010." (3/2003) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby. Roasted red and black fruits and a meaty nuance on the nose. Sweet, fat and very ri ...Read More »

1970 Gazin, Pomerol

Robert Parker writes: "Readers may have forgotten (or never knew) that a chunk of this vineyard was sold to Petrus in the early 1970s, but what remains is still a superb terroir and incredibly well-placed on the plateau of Pomerol, adjacent to Petrus and across the road from Lafleur."

1977 Climens, Barsac (375ml)

Jancis Robinson: "TA 4.1 g/l (sulphuric), RS 103g/l. A frosty year and thus very low yields (4 hl/ha). Deep orangey gold. 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. Great vigour and purity and persistence. 18/20 Points (JH)" (5/2009)

2004 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2004 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

91 points Wine Spectator: "A gorgeous nose of ripe raspberry, with hints of vanilla and blackberry. Intense yet subtle. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit, yet refined and layered with silky tannins. Long and caressing. Gets better and better. I like it more than the 2003 or the 2000. (JS)" (3/2007) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A dark ruby/purple hue is accompanied by sweet aromas of black cherries, crushed rocks, flowers, and subtle oak, moderate tannin, excellent ripeness, and a long finish. This charming, medium to full-bodied St.-Emilion offers plenty of punch and depth. If additional complexity emerges, it wi ...Read More »

2007 Kirwan, Margaux

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This is a solid, finely perfumed wine, the tannins giving concentration and structure. There is some severity as well, a sign that it is still settling into the bottle. But with its bitter chocolate character and tight texture, it should age well." (4/2010) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, menthol, licorice and violet, plus a whiff of eucalyptus. Juicy, tight and on the lean side, with vibrant black fruit and licorice flavors accompanied by a slightly weedy green element. A bit extractive in style but not particularly f ...Read More »
