2005 Fourcas Hosten, Listrac

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Still young, with its dry tannins, this is a wine that has developed depth and concentration over the last 3-4 years. It has power, the berry fruits driving through the structure to give a layered, attractive, serious finish. (RV)" (6/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep ruby/plum/purple, with more sweetness to its fruit than normal, the 2005 Fourcas Hosten displays minerality, earth, spice, blackcurrants, and touches of oak and forest notes. (RP)" (6/2015) Wine Spectator: "Blackberry and mineral aromas and flavors follow through to a medium-to-full body, with chewy tannins and a m ...Read More »

1995 Calon-Ségur, St Estèphe Top Pick!
1995 Calon-Ségur, St Estèphe

97 points James Suckling: "I always loved this wine from the first time I tasted it in 1998. It has such purity and power yet it's reserved and beautiful. It's one of the best Calons ever. I drank a bottle with some friends in Manhattan last week and it was the wine of the evening. It was full-bodied with silky tannins and a focused and intense finish. Lots of currant and berry character and hints of dried spices. It's finally opening up and giving real pleasure now like so many 1995 Bordeaux at the moment."

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 »

2004 Moulin-Haut-Laroque, Fronsac

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big time sleeper of the vintage from Fronsac, this beauty from proprietor Jean-Noel Herve has hit the bull’s eye. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of black currants, sweet cherries, crushed rocks, and a distinctive minerality. It is a medium to full-bodied, structured effort with sweet tannin, decent acidity, and oodles of fruit as well as richness. (RP)" (6/2007) Wine Spectator: "Aromas of black cherries, flowers and fresh herbs follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with firm tannins and a solid fruit and mineral finish.

Balanced and generous, with lots of fruit underneath. Best after 2011. (JS)" (3/2008) Decanter: "Lifted cassis and hedgerow fruits. Harmonious balance between ripe, dark fruit, integrated oak, and chewy tannins. Attractive. Drink 2013-18."

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "No tasting note given." (4/2008) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This is pure and precise, showing rich apricot, peach and clementine flavors, but great cut too, with a mouthwatering edge that lets chamomile, green plum and honeysuckle notes dance through the finish. Gorgeous. (JM, Web-2011)" 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow-gold. Superripe but precise aromas of mirabelle, white nectarine and honey. Supersweet, deep and powerful, with a fat, honeyed character and terrific spicy persistence. A big boy but with lovely balance. (ST)" (7/2008)

Lots of fruit with a tropical fruit undertone of mango and papaya on the palate. Intense finish. Too excellent not to drink."

2003 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The spectacular 2003 Leoville Poyferre exhibits a dense purple color with a touch of lightening at the edge as well as notes of creosote, barbecue smoke, jammy black currants, licorice and spice box. This intense, voluptuously textured, full-bodied St.-Julien possesses low acidity and ripe tannin. Still fresh and exuberant, it is just entering its plateau of full maturity where it should remain for 10-15+ years.

2005 Fontenil, Fronsac

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the home estate of Dany and Michel Rolland, the 2005 Fontenil has an opaque, thick ruby/purple color. Dense plum, black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit jump from the glass of this full-bodied, terrific Fronsac, which is one of the appellation’s stars of the vintage. Long, rich, young, and capable of lasting another 15-20 years, this is one of the candidates for Wine of the Vintage in Fronsac. This wine actually needs another several years of bottle age.

(3/2004) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Clos du Marquis tastes like a classified growth Bordeaux. Deep ruby/purple-colored, it is more open-knit and forward than its bigger sibling, exhibiting lovely cassis fruit intermixed with underbrush, earth, and subtle background oak. Enjoy this approachable 2001 over the next 10-14 years. (RP)" (6/2004) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good ruby-red color. Currant, tobacco, minerals, graphite and sexy oak on the nose.

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.

Roses and other flowers, such as lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of tannins yet incredibly long and seductive. Best after 2012. (JS)" (3/2006) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular success, the opaque plum-colored 2003 Leoville Barton is still on the young side of its plateau of maturity.

1998 Pavie, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine still possesses a dense, youthful, plum/garnet color to the rim, with very little lightening. The first vintage for Pavie under Chantal and Gérard Perse, the 1998 is full-bodied, showing lots of cedar wood, forest floor, roasted herbs, black cherry and blackcurrant and new saddle leather. It is quite full-bodied, opulent and seems to be just entering its plateau of full maturity, where it should last another 15-20 years.

2000 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac Top Pick!
2000 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Grand Puy Lacoste is even better than such recent vintages as 2005 and 2009. A broad, classic, large-scaled effort, it boasts a deep blue/purple color as well as tell-tale notes of creme de cassis, subtle smoke, flowers, and unsmoked tobacco. Powerful, full-bodied flavors have shed a lot of tannin, but they remain relatively youthful. This is a young adolescent, broadly flavored Pauillac with an enticing texture as well as abundant richness and fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but promises to hit its peak in five years, and last for two decades. ...Read More »

2000 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2000 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming out of a relatively dormant state, this 2000 is a spectacular Cheval Blanc. Of recent vintages, I think only the 2009 can give it a run for its money. A blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc, the wine has a sweet nose of menthol, melted licorice, boysenberry, blueberry, and cassis. A broad wine with compelling purity, a layered texture, and sweet tannin, with hints of coffee and earth in the background, this is by far the best Cheval Blanc since 1990 and before 2009. It is a legend in the making and can actually be drunk now, as the tannins h ...Read More »

Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully over the last eleven years, this wine is still an adolescent, but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance. One of the all-time great examples of Lynch Bages, the 2000 is just beginning to drink well yet promises to last for another 20-25+ years.

This is as good as, if not better than, the outstanding 2000. Le Gay is back. (JS)" (3/2004) 88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark ruby/purple, with notes of black raspberries, damp earth, minerals, plums, and a hint of mushrooms, this is a strong effort from Le Gay. It displays medium body, moderate tannin, and none of the rusticity that recent vintages have often possessed. Nevertheless, patience will be required.

Goes for minutes on the palate. Still very reserved and not giving all it has. Give it much more bottle time to realize its wonderful style. One of the sleepers of the vintage.

(4/2011) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is dominated by new wood, which goes right through the big, dark fruit flavors and tannins.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 is a wine to stockpile, especially for those in their thirties and forties as it needs another decade to reach maturity, after which it should keep for 30+ years. This vineyard, just south of Mouton Rothschild, has produced an opaque bluish/purple-colored 2006 with an extraordinarily pure nose of graphite, charcoal, sweet creme de cassis, and a hint of scorched earth. Incredible concentration, stunning richness, and a 60-second finish result in a wine that transcends the vintage as well as this estate’s 1855 classification. This enormously endow ...Read More »

The palate is medium-bodied with fresh, vibrant honeyed fruit that builds and builds in the mouth in tandem with a killer line of acidity.

The deep, layered bouquet alone is deeply transfixing. Smoke, mocha, dark spices, lavender, crème de cassis, a host of dark-fleshed fruits and a touch of warm, resonant sweetness from the French oak draw me in. All of those sensations follow through to the palate, where the wine is massive, intense and totally enveloping.

98 points James Suckling: "A dense and powerful wine as always with very ripe fruit yet an underlying freshness and complexity with tobacco, dried fruit and fresh spices such as lemon grass and Thai basil. Layered and long." (10/2015) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Two terrific efforts from this vintage, the 2003 Cos d’Estournel (70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) remains one of the superstars of the vintage. It offers an opaque ruby/purple hue as well as notes of incense, camphor, licorice, creme de cassis and graphite. Full-bodied, opulent, incredibly fresh and well ...Read More »

2003 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow-gold. Spicy, ripe, complex aromas of peach, apricot, orange and nutmeg. Juicy, shapely and sweet, with lovely inner-mouth lift and aromatic character. High-toned and expressive but also quite fresh and precise for the year. Finishes impressively long and firm. A very strong performance for this chateau, and a good value. (ST)" (8/2006) Wine Spectator: "Wow. This shows superintense aromas of dried pineapple, apple tart and pecan pie with honey. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with lovely honey character and a medium finish... Best after 2009." (3/2006) K&L Notes: K&L' Clyde ... Read More »

2003 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

97 points Wine Spectator: "(#28 on the Top 100 Wines of 2006) Intense aromas of blackberry, currant and cherry. Full-bodied, with masses of big, velvety tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. A blockbuster. A classic big, juicy claret. Best after 2012." (3/2006) 94 points James Suckling: "Ripe currants, spices, and blueberries on the nose. Full bodied, with big chewy tannins and a juicy finish. This still needs time. Pull the cork after 2014. Find the wine." (3/2011) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet colour with a hint of purple. Opulently spiced, dark fruit nose of black cherries, plum pudding, cinnamon, cloves and a little t ...Read More »

1995 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 1995 Chateau d’Yquem is moving into its secondary aroma phase. A deep golden color, it has a dense and almost Barsac-like bouquet with tangerine, apricot, acacia and melted candle wax. It displays good intensity, unfolding beautifully in the glass. The palate has a strident opening, with a slight bitter edge that lends this Yquem great tension. One can discern layers of marmalade infused with honey fruit, with a powerful, spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is drinking perfectly now, but will surely age ...Read More »

2005 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It appears consumers can’t go wrong with any 2005 with the word "Pavie" in its name. This outstanding terroir, elevated to Premier Grand Cru Classe status in St.-Emilion’s reclassification, is run with impeccable attention to detail by Nicolas Thienpont, who is assisted by winemaking guru, Stephane Derenoncourt. The 2005 Pavie Macquin may turn out to be this duo’s finest wine to date. This is a moderately large vineyard (37 acres) for the area, and the blend tends to be 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. A black/purple color is ac ...Read More »

2000 Latour à Pomerol, Pomerol

95 points Wine Spectator: "A wine with a reserved, yet complex nose of blackberries, raspberries and flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a soft, sweet fruit finish. A beautiful wine to taste. Hard not to drink this. Best I have had in years. The real thing. Better than the 1998." (3/2003) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An outstanding, medium to full-bodied effort, the 2000 Latour a Pomerol exhibits a plum/purple color, admirable texture, medium to full body, and notes of caramels, truffles, sweet earth, and cola interwoven with black cherry liqueur and plums. Pure, deep, and classic, with moderately high ...Read More »

1995 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Leognan

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Berry Brother & Rudd’s vertical. The 1995 is probably reaching its peak. It retains that lovely Graves bouquet with tertiary notes subtly interwoven into the red berry fruit, that meaty element only becoming evident with continued aeration. The palate is sensual on the entry with a rounded texture, plenty of sous-bois notes defining the finish that is long in the mouth. The savoury side of this wine is less obvious here that on previous bottles. Drinking beautifully now. (NM)" (1/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "A chewy, burly wine for aging. Big Haut-Bailly. Vivid berry a ...Read More »

2005 Rol Valentin, St-Emilion

95 points Wine Spectator: "Black licorice, tar and fresh mushroom aromas lead to a full-bodied palate, with soft, velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Balanced and juicy. Velvety and attractive, yet powerful and structured. (JS)" (3/2008) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red-ruby. Wild aromas of blackberry, dark raspberry, mocha and meat. Sappy, penetrating and deep, with highly concentrated flavors of dark raspberry, truffle, game, minerals and flowers. Offers a superb blend of richness, creamy sweetness and acidity. Finishes very broad and very long, with considerable power. This is downright s ...Read More »

2005 d'Armailhac, Pauillac

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Located in the north of Pauillac, between Mouton and Pontet-Canet, this 123-acre estate is also part of G.F.A. Baronne Philippine de Rothschild. The aroma balances meaty fruit and mineral scents, and while the pungent red fruit is always there, the tannins seem to increase their intensity with air. They cover the pure black cherry flavor like a powerful skin, deep and plush with an iron-knuckle punch. The tannins don't go away, but their inner velvet eventually wins out. This has improved significantly since the en primeur tastings and will continue to e ...Read More »

2000 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien Top Pick!
2000 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The plushest, most ostentatious and dramatic of all the Leovilles in 2000, this wine is already sumptuous, displaying some nuances in its huge nose of vanilla bean, black chocolate, jammy black cherries, cassis, and graphite in a flamboyant style. Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine and a complete contrast to the extracted behemoth of Leoville Barton and the backward, classic Leoville Las Cases. The Poyferre’s low acidity, sweet tannin and an already gorgeous mouthfeel make it a wine to drink now as well as over ...Read More »

1996 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby-red. Pure, highly perfumed aromas of black cherry, currant, plum, minerals, tobacco, leather and fresh herbs. Very ripe, suave and spicy; at once subtle and gripping. Lovely Cabernet character dominating today. Very firm, long finish is youthful but not hard-edged. Showing extremely well." (8/2002) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark ruby-colored, with a complex nose of dried herbs, Asian spices, and black cherry jam intermixed with cassis, it possesses outstanding purity, and considerable tannin in the finish. This classic, medium to full-bodied, traditionally made wine ...Read More »

2003 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe

95 points Wine Spectator: "Loads of crushed berries, with mineral, lightly toasted oak and licorice. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is the sleeper of the vintage. Best after 2010. (JS)" (3/2006) 94 points James Suckling: "This shows so wonderfully now with a dense palate yet a delicate chocolate, mineral and walnut skin. Full and velvety. Wonderful with juicy length and a long finish. Almost Burgundian in texture." (4/2013) 92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red color. Very fresh aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice and dark chocolate; not at all surmuri Then ripe but aromatic and juicy in t ...Read More »
