2012 Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon Top Pick!
2012 Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon

This is the second wine from Château d'Aiguilhe, in the far east of Bordeaux. Proprietor and winemaker Stephan von Neipperg is also responsible for the greatness that lies in each bottle of Château Canon-La-Gaffelière, Clos l'Oratoire, Château Peyreau and La Mondotte. The cepage is overwhelmingly Merlot, with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc. The property dates back to the 12th century and is linked to the Knights Templar. The current château, a "fortified farmhouse," was built in the 13th century. The Right Bank terroir, with its clay-limestone soil... Read More »

2012 Trébiac, Graves

You need look no further than Graves for a screamingly good example of ready-to-drink, Merlot-based red. Tobacco, oak and black currant aromas exude from this value-driven Bordeaux, that drinks like a bottle three times the price.

2012 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion

93 points James Suckling: "Incredible chalk and salt character with minerala and cocoa as well as berries. Full-bodied, tightly wound and long. So much going on. From Hong Kong’s Kwok family who also own Haut-Brisson in St. Emilion. This is the first year they made. Located next door to Barde-Haut. Better in 2017. Exciting new wine." (2/2015)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An attractive wine from another member of the Chinese Kwok family, the 2012 Tour Saint Christophe has a dense ruby/purple color, appealing cassis and blackcurrant fruit, medium body, foresty floral notes, wood and spice.

2012 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. The wine is very dry, layered tannins giving a major sense of structure. It will always have this dry, dense character, very firm, solid and powerful." (4/2013)92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrants, blueberries and lemons follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a fresh, clean finish. A little tight now but excellent.

2012 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 offers up a beautifully fragrant nose of mocha, coffee beans, black cherries, black currants, spring flowers and forest floor. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium to full-bodied St.-Emilion with beautiful density and purity as well as a touch of toasty oak. Barde-Haut has been an over-achiever since the Garcin-Leveque family acquired it. Bravo! Drink the 2012 over the next 12-15 years."

2012 Gloria, St-Julien

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Solid and concentrated, this wine certainly shows great dryness as well as fruit. It has power and density, and a texture that balances new wood as well as the fruitiness." (4/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Deep crimson. Leafy and dark-fruited at the same time. Inviting. Deliciously and distinctively rich and full in the mouth but still shapely and refined. Plenty of tannin but all hidden in the fruit. Lovely harmony and so much more generous than most 2012s tasted at the UGC's London showing."

95 points James Suckling: "This shows so much class and balance with blackberry and mushroom character. Some wet earth. It makes you want to drink it! Fine and ripe tannins. Gorgeous. Drink in 2018." (2/2015)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This great terroir, long owned by the Gratiot family, has come to life under the inspired winemaking of Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt. Some recent vintages have been legendary efforts, especially 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

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 »

2012 Joanin Bécot, Côtes de Castillon

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* The wine has serious tannins and firm fruit that give an austere character at this stage. But it will develop and round out into a rich wine with ripe black fruits, always with a solid tannic structure. Owner Juliette Bécot manages the technical side here with consultant Jean-Philippe Fort from the Michel Rolland lab, and manages marketing at classed-growth Château Beauséjour-Bécot in nearby Saint-Émilion."

2012 l'Avocat, Cérons (Graves/Sweet) (500ml)

Ch. L’Avocat’s vineyard location, just a few hundred yards from the Garonne River are in a perfect spot for their grapes to catch the morning mist that will infect the grapes and allow “boytrytis” to flourish, creating a lush wine of great sweetness. The bouquet is of citrus, apricot and pineapple fruit; on the palate it has the hallmark quality of lively acidity with fruit flavors of marmalade, pineapple and lemons. Good complexity and concentration with a fresh finish. An impressive value in sweet wine! (Ralph Sands, K&L Bordeaux Expert)

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.

Better in 2017." (2/2015)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The acquisition of this well-known, beautiful estate in Fronsac by proprietor Jean Halley has raised the level of performance dramatically. The 2012, which tips the scales at a whopping 15% alcohol, is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. This is a major sleeper of the vintage.

It achieved 14% natural alcohol and yields were 31 hectoliters per hectare.

It is medium-bodied with earth, herbs and spice. Drink it over the next decade. (RP)" (4/2015) K&L Notes: * A very fruity and tasty style.

The finish is long, opulent and beautifully textured. This is stunning Pomerol in this vintage. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. There is also room for further improvement.

It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars.
