2009 Malmaison, Moulis-en-Médoc

Wine Spectator: "This has a good sappy feel, with kirsch and cherry preserves flavors laced with a pepper note and a lively tobacco streak. Shows a stony edge on the finish. Drink now through 2015. (JM)" (5/2012) K&L Notes: Not to be confused with the Napoleonic museum (Château de Malmaison) located just west of Paris, the 24 hectare Château Malmaison in Moulis, Gironde, was purchased by the Rothschilds in 1973 and lies adjacent to Château Clarke. The abandoned vineyard was renovated between 1974 and 1978, its soils now yielding distinctive and harmonious wines that are mellow, fruit... Read More »

2009 Saint Martial, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2009 Saint Martial, St-Emilion

High quality, value Bordeaux is one of the great pleasures in wine. Saint Martial is a fine St-Emilion estate located along the Dorgodne River. Originally founded by the Dupeyrat family, it is now run by Micheau Maillou and family, and comprised of just 3.7 hectares. Great care is taken in the vineyard, and many of the vines have some real age with an overall average of 45 years. Predominately Merlot with 20% Cabernet Franc, this is classic St-Emilion split between 1/3 new oak, 1/3 used, 1/3 third neutral vats. With just the right amount of age in the bo... Read More »

2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times since release, the 2009 Pontet Canet is one of those magical efforts that wine lovers encounter far too infrequently. From one of the greatest vintages for the region ever, this deep, saturated purple-colored effort offers an incredible bouquet of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, damp earth, and graphite. This gives way to a full-bodied, powerful Pauillac that carries a massive amount of sweet fruit yet stays light and beautifully balanced on the palate. With ripe, sweet tannin, an ...Read More »

2009 Moulin-à-Vent, Moulis

Another great value from the superb 2009 Bordeaux vintage. Actually this is the first vintage I have tasted from this property-I loved it and bought it on the spot. 65% Merlot, 30% CS, and 5% CF. Lots of chocolate on the nose that follows to the palate. Quite lush and sweet on the palate. So easy to drink and less than $20. A must buy.

2009 Puygueraud, Côtes de Francs

92 points James Suckling: "Violets and blackberries with hints of spices on the nose. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now or hold. Always excellent value." (3/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec is from the Thienpont family. (Puygueraud is the estate where this large clan was born.) The 2009 is impressive, but the estate somewhat under-the-radar, since it is hard to pronounce and not exactly a household name. This is a beautifully fleshy wine with loads of licorice, spring flowers, graphite and black fruits. Flesh ...Read More »

2009 Valentons Canteloup "Cuvée Excentrique" Bordeaux Supérieur

Chateau Valentons-Canteloup Bordeaux Superieur is a family-owned property that sits just along the Dordogne river in Bordeaux. It is owned by the Meynard family and Jacques Meynard makes all the wine on the property from white to rose to red. Jacques also makes a wine under the label of Chateau Valentons-Canteloup that he calls "Cuvee Excentrique", and it is truly eccentric for a Bordeaux Superieur, made from Petit Verdot (70%) and Merlot (30%).

2009 La Couspaude, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2009 La Couspaude, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best La Couspaude I have ever tasted, the opaque purple 2009 exhibits nicely integrated toasty oak/pain grille in addition to cassis, kirsch, raspberries and earthy undertones. Full-bodied, with beautiful integration of acidity, alcohol and tannin, this is a robust, exuberant, somewhat flamboyant style of St.-Emilion that is clearly modern, but quite frankly, delicious. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. (RP)" (2/2012) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Pure blackberry and currant fruits, lots of ripe and juicy flavors. Intense, concentrated and smoky.

2009 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

Jancis Robinson: "The second wine of Gruaud-Larose, farmed organically. Not overblown. Well mannered with an undertow of the drama of the vintage. Drink 2013-2020." (4/2013) Wine Spectator: "This has a nice beefy edge, offering roasted fig, plum and warm tobacco leaf notes, with bittersweet cocoa inlaid on the slightly gutsy finish. On the rustic side, but solid and winey. This second wine is also released under the Larose de Gruaud label. Best from 2013 through 2020.

It goes on for minutes. Speechless. Better and cleaner than the great 1990. Try in 2022." (3/2012) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A colossal effort, the 2009 Montrose represents a hypothetical blend of the monumental duo of 1989 and 1990 combined with the phenomenal 2003.

2009 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. This is a superb performance from Langoa Barton. Here, the 2009 has a lifted, perfumed, Burgundy-inspired bouquet that is nicely defined but showing a little more unresolved oak than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit on the entry: strawberry, cedar and blackcurrant. This is strict and very linear, conservative but compelling. The class is here from start to finish and presently stands shoulder to shoulder with its “big bro’”. (NM)" (7/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deceptively approachable wine.

(7/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best ever wine from this estate (even better than their sensational 2005), this full-bodied wine offers notes of blueberry, black currant, asphalt and burning charcoal embers in a deep, layered and multi-dimensional style. It is impressively pure and well-built, with far greater concentration and length than I ever remember this wine having in the past.

Opulently textured and full-bodied with gorgeous levels of crème de cassis, melted licorice, espresso roast and chocolate, it possesses high but sweet, velvety tannins, massive body, and fabulous purity as well as length. This could turn out to be a candidate for perfection in another 8-10 years. It will drink well for 30-50 years, but will always be much more approachable and charming than its 2010 counterpart.

According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense o ...Read More »

One would have to go back to the 2005, 1947 or 1961 to find this level of quality from this ancient, historic vineyard planted adjacent to the walls of St.-Emilion, on the Cote Pavie. Dating back to the 1400s, this estate has been owned for over three centuries by the Malet-Roquefort family. Composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon (in the past it was two-thirds Merlot and the rest split between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc), the 2009 reveal ...Read More »

Knockout nose of black cherry, minerals, coffee liqueur and violet offers uncommon depth and complexity. The flavors of blackberry, black plum and minerals are complicated by a note of iron and given wonderful clarity and cut by harmonious, vibrant acidity.

This spectacular wine is nearly overwhelming in its richness, thickness and intensity. Once all its baby fat falls away, the terroir characteristics and additional nuances will emerge.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion (100RP, 95WE, 94JS, 94ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "After tasting it three times from bottle, I am convinced this prodigious wine is one of the greatest young Bordeaux I have ever tasted. Inky blue/purple with notes of camphor, forest floor, blackberry, cassis, sweet cherries, licorice, the wine has stunning aromatics, unctuous texture and an almost inky concentration, but without any hard edges. With considerable tannin and just enough acidity to provide definition, this wine transcends even its premier grand cru classe terroir. It is certainly the finest Clos Fourtet ever produced. Give it 5-7 years of cellaring to allow some of its baby fat to fall away. There is certainly enough structure underneath to keep for 30-50 years. Bravo! From my barrel score of 95-98, I suppose I should have seen this perfect score coming, particularly considering what proprietor Philippe Cuvelier and estate manager Tony Ballu have acc

It displays good precision with admirable purity. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet sappy entry.

(2/2012) 96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Similar in style to the 2015, the 2009 La Conseillante is another sexy, seductive, opulent even, Pomerol that offers a huge array of spiced dark fruits, cured meats, crushed flowers, and truffle. Deep, full-bodied, layered and beautifully pure, with an extroverted personality that just begs to be drunk, it will keep for another three decades or more. ...Read More »

2009 Les Cruzelles, Lalande de Pomerol

92 points James Suckling: "Very chewy for this appellation, with lots of tannins. Character of ripe fruit and toasted oak. It all comes together. Full and juicy on the palate." (3/2012) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Thick and chewy, this muscular red delivers dark flavors of black currant, espresso and earth, with licorice and mineral accents that show good depth. Despite the tannic strength, lively acidity keeps it fresh. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2022. (TM)" (3/2012) 88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc) Bright light ruby.

Bid on this 3-half-bottle lot of 2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (375ml) (100JD, 99WE, 98JS, 98RP, 96VN, 96WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times since release, the 2009 Pontet Canet is one of those magical efforts that wine lovers encounter far too infrequently. From one of the greatest vintages for the region ever, this deep, saturated purple-colored effort offers an incredible bouquet of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, damp earth, and graphite. This gives way to a full-bodied, powerful Pauillac that carries a massive amount of sweet fruit yet stays light and beautifully balanced on the palate. With ripe, sweet tannin, an expansive texture, and awesome mid-palate depth, as well as incredible purity, freshness, and delineation, it’s as good as wine gets and can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 4-5 decades. Hats off to proprietor Alfred Tesseron and the team at Pontet Canet!" (02/2018)

2009 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac 12-pack in OWC

97 points Vinous: "The 2009 Pichon Lalande is ripe and decidedly flamboyant from the very first taste. Dense and voluptuous in the glass, with serious richness, the 2009 is also almost shockingly tannic. It won’t be ready to drink anytime soon, and yet, there is so much to look forward to. The warm, dry conditions yielded a dense, exotic Pichon Lalande, but there is serious structure beneath all of the fruit. (AG)" (10/2017) 96 points James Suckling: "What a great nose of blackberries, currants and spices. Hints of fresh herbs. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and lovely fruit. Such finesse and beau ...Read More »
