2012 Les Grands Chênes, Médoc (Previously $17)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This reliable and over-achieving cru bourgeois from visionary Bernard Magrez is an excellent blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine, aged 16 months in Bordeaux barrels, has a dense ruby/purple color and a classic Médoc profile of cedar wood, blackcurrants, underbrush and forest floor. It is medium-bodied and concentrated, with soft tannins. Drink it over the next 5-8 years. (RP)" (4/2015) Vinous: "Smoke, game, tobacco, incense, plum and blood orange are some of the notes that emerge from the 2012 Les Grands Chênes. Drink this hearty, flavorful re ...Read More »

2012 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

92 points James Suckling: "A dense and polished red for the vintage with dried strawberry, raspberry and chocolate character. Full body, firm tannins and a pretty finish. Needs two or three years to soften slightly but already impressive." (1/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barde-Haut is dark, fleshy and voluptuous, with notable depth and resonance from the Merlot. Mocha, bittersweet chocolate, plums and spices all add nuance, but above all else, the 2012 is a wine of spherical texture and intensity. Give it a few years to fully unwind. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, aged in 300-lit ...Read More »

2012 de Chambrun, Lalande-de-Pomerol

90 points James Suckling: "Delicate aromas of fresh strawberries, plums and hints of chocolate. Full body, velvety tannins, good acidity and a long and concentrated finish. Drink in 2017." (2/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for their basic cuvée, the 2012 Chambrun exhibits nice earthy black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, spice box, smoke and lush medium-bodied flavors. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. (RP)" (4/2015) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Red cherry, smoke and flowers on the nose, along with an autumnal underbrushy nuance.

2012 Fleur Cardinale, St-Émilion (Previously $50)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship wine from the Decoster family, this blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon has been a hugely successful wine since they acquired this 58-acre estate and revolutionized the level of quality. This is consistently one of the best St.-Emilions and over-achieving for its classification. The 2012 has pure, striking aromatics of blueberry, black raspberry, minerals and flowers. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and multi-dimensional, with a beautiful texture, this is stunning wine that completely dominates its classification a ...Read More »

90 points James Suckling: "This is so delicious and wonderful now with fresh strawberries, peppermint and flowers. Medium body, fine tannins and a crisp finish. Elegant." (2/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Fresh and dancing. Some great vivacity. Spice and complete and fresh. Dry end. Edge of a sweet spice reminiscent of gingerbread men. Lovely and polished. Juicy." (4/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Le Pauillac de Château Latour has a pleasant strictness on the well-defined bouquet with black fruit laced with fine mineralité for a third wine.

(2/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Features a smoldering charcoal edge, with focused plum, cassis and bitter cherry fruit forming the core. Sleek, with iron and loam notes underscoring the finish.

2012 La Dauphine, Fronsac

90 points James Suckling: "Fresh and elegant fruits such as blackberries and plums. This is a medium-to-full-bodied red with fine tannins and fresh fruity finish. Needs a couple of years to soften. 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.

2012 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

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. Pliant and supple, but with considerable underlying structure, the 2012 is likely to drink well for the next two to three decades, perhaps longer, but it is also going to need at least a few years in bottle for the tannins to ...Read More »

2012 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc

Drink now or hold." (2/2015) 87-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red ruby with purple tinges. Sexy, floral aromas of raspberry, pepper, licorice and spices are vibrant and precise. Juicy, intense and very smooth, with wonderful energy and precision to the flavors of blackberry, licorice and spices. Very nicely balanced, persistent wine with fine tannins and very good grip--and no green or harsh edges. This excellent wine gets m ...Read More »

2012 d'Issan, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Château d’Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. 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. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206).

2012 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Wine Spectator: "Nicely packed, with energetic flavors of blackberry cobbler, blueberry paste and boysenberry coulis, carried by a brambly structure and pushed by anise and ganache accents on the finish. Shows solid grip and should do well with cellaring. This has added some weight since the barrel tasting. Best from 2017 through 2022. (JM)" (3/2015) 90 points Vinous: "A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2012 Brown hits the palate with serious intensity and slightly rough contours that are going to need time to settle down. The high presence of Merlot (70%) and pushed, ripe style add to the wi ...Read More »

2012 Reserve de Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

(2/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Réserve de Léoville-Barton has a fruit-driven, open, pure raspberry and crushed strawberry scented bouquet that is simple but designed to seduce. "Punter friendly," as they say. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, fleshy in the mouth, soft tannin with a smudged, easy-drinking finish. (NM)" (10/2016) Wine Spectator: "A bright, fl ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de L'A, Côtes de Castillon

Full body with silky tannins, lovely acidity and an intense, textured finish." (2/2015) 89-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium-deep ruby. Sexy aromas of black fruits, cocoa, cinnamon and violet. Broad and supple but with a light touch to its musky dark berry and plum flavors. Sappy and energetic but at the same time almost creamy on the long finish. A very strong showing for this wine in 2012; it's far above the quality level of many other wines fro ...Read More »

2012 Le Dôme, St Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This St.-Emilion (1,000 cases), which has a very high percentage of Cabernet Franc (80%, which is much higher than Cheval Blanc or Ausone) has always been the flagship wine of proprietor Jonathan Malthus. The 2012 has a dense ruby/purple color and plenty of raspberry and blueberry fruit intermixed with spring flower garden notes, which are followed by a medium-bodied wine with stunning elegance, purity and minerality. It is not the biggest wine, but the quality of the fruit, the complex nuances, and overall equilibrium make for a very special Bordeaux to ...Read More »

2012 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

Better in 2018 but very beautiful already." (2/2015) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This structured wine with big, bold red fruits offers ripe acidity, a dense texture and considerable concentration. It also has the hallmark freshness of the vintage that balances the strong aging potential. Drink from 2022. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (5/2015) 93 points Vinous: "In a vintage in which so many wines are open and forward, Domaine de Chevalier's 2012 Rouge is anything ...Read More »

This second wine of Château Pichon Longueville is packed with the vintage's hallmark of perfumed black-currant fruit. (RV)" (4/2013) 91 points James Suckling: "A beautiful red with chocolate, nuts and cappuccino aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, chewy and rich. Needs two or three years to soften. Triumph for the second wine of Pichon Baron for this vintage!" (2/2015) 91 points Vinous: "The 2012 Les Tourelles de Longueville is gorgeous.

2012 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

97 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cheval Blanc boasts stunning power and a vertical, imposing sense of structure that is quite rare in this vintage. Dark and almost brooding in style, the Cheval is a rare 2012 that absolutely demands cellaring. Smoke, tobacco, incense and dark spices open up with time, but the 2012 is a reticent, tannic wine that is only showing the barest hints of its ultimate potential. This is a magnificent showing and one of the clear highlights of the year.

(2/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is the first vintage to not be offered En Primeur, meaning this is the first commercial release for this wine. It is composed of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it opens with expressive notes of crème de cassis, unsmoked cigars, charcuterie and tapenade on the nose with hints of kirsch and fertile loam plus a waft of menthol.

2012 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

There's potential for this powerful, impressive wine to bear the wine's very dry character with the weight of its fruit. (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.

2012 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (stained labels)

It is rich, concentrated, stunningly supple, pure and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. This wine defines what is meant by intensity of flavor, but it is light on its feet, à la great cuisine. It should be drinkable reasonably young, but age effortl ...Read More »

It clearly serves up more than enough volume and fruit intensity on the nose compared to the impressive 2011 Canon: it is very pure with black cherries, wild strawberry, asphalt and blood orange. This is very well defined and beautifully focused. The palate is medium-bodied, silky smooth and with that thrilling sense of frisson.

2012 Vieux-Château-Certan, Pomerol (1.5L)
