2010 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2010 Franc Mayne, St-Emilion

94 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of crushed blueberries and minerals with flowers follow through to a full body, with solid fruit and tannin structure and a long, long finish. Very intense. Better than 2009. Try in 2017." (2/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers the profile of the vintage, with spice-infused raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit coursing along nicely, followed by delineated anise and spice notes, all carried by a racy graphite spine. Rock-solid and nicely balanced, this should age elegantly. Best from 2014 through 2024. (JM, Web-2013)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More closed than I remember from b ...Read More »

2010 Brillette, Moulis Top Pick!
2010 Brillette, Moulis

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another superb over-achiever from the appellation of Moulis in the Medoc, this wine, a blend of 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, shows lots of licorice, barbecue smoke, charcuterie, plum and black currants. It hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied opulence. The tannins are sweet and the acidity adequate to provide definition and vibrancy. This is a beauty. An outstanding effort from proprietors, the Flageul family. (RP)" (2/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Pure, lush and caressing, with lovely mouthfeel to the layers of dark plu ...Read More »

Full and juicy on palate with pure dark fruit and velvety tannins. So nicely layered texture and long in the finish with red fruit and crushed chalk. The texture is superb." (11/2013) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Powerful, complex and ripe, this is a magnificent and concentrated wine.

2010 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux Top Pick!
2010 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

95 points James Suckling: "A wine with beautiful strawberry and chocolate with hints of pie crust. It's full-bodied with super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Needs at least four to five years to really come together but so wonderful. Not the amazing 2009 but clearly outstanding." (11/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses.

Full and nice texture on the palate with charming fruit and fine tannins. Enjoyable finish with medium length and a tasty licorice note. Drink from 2016." (6/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Very refreshing nose. Lots of energy but only medium intensity on the palate. Minerals, refreshment and nice balance here even if it is not showy. Good stuff."

2010 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of sliced mushroom. Full and round with chewy tannins. Give this four or five years to soften. Tight and structured. Better in 2017." (2/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The former home of Alexis Lichine is now owned by a Pacific-based French mining company. The low yields of the 2010 (the vineyard was hit by hail) have produced a smooth and rich style of wine, which is weighty while also showing fine acidity on the finish. This has definite aging potential. (RV)" (2/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dense purple, with loads of blueberry and blackberry fruit as w ...Read More »

Charming and enjoyable but a bit tight and bitter in the finish." (3/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Features a toasty frame, lead by notes of mocha and ganache. Sleek steeped currant and blackberry fruit sit at the core, with a vibrant graphite edge driving the finish. Solid. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2022.

2010 Malescasse, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Located in the heart of the Haut-Médoc, close to Lamarque, Malescasse is capable of producing sweet-tasting, friendly wines, such as this 2010. It’s bright, fruity and layered with acidity, and the firm tannins show through slowly, offering power and density for the medium-term. (RV)" (2/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Dense and chewy, with espresso and baker's chocolate notes shrouding the dark currant, fig and blackberry fruit at the core, followed by graphite and anise on the finish for now.

Vibrant and juicy red fruit on the palate with ripe tannins and good length. Medium-full body." (3/2013) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Joanin Becot has a simple bouquet with raspberry and balsamic scents that open and muster more vigour with time, the oak nicely integrated and revealing floral tones. The palate is medium-bodied with a tannic, masculine entry. This is very structured with a dry finish, but ...Read More »

Long finish with licorice and soft mineral notes. Wonderful wine that will drink well from 2016." (2/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This is nicely cloaked with charcoal and roasted apple wood, while the core of steeped fig, blackberry and black cherry paste notes sits in reserve. The well-defined finish is mostly grip for now, but should meld in the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2026. (JM)" (3/2013)

There is a classic black-currant note that's balanced by the firm tannins of the vintage. (RV)" (2/2013) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Tightly focused, with a beam of cassis and blackberry fruit framed by integrated espresso and charcoal notes.

Yet the fruit and acidity balance this muscular wine. Try in 2018." (2/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "There's a nice charcoal note driving this from the start, while the dark plum, blackberry and black currant fruit waits in reserve. Ganache, licorice snap and tobacco fill in the finish and give this added range, while a singed alder wood note runs underneath for added texture and length. Impressive. Best from 2015 through 2030.

Needs at least three years of bottle age to soften. Could be better than 2009 in the long run." (2/2013) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now).

Some oak is present, but this is a mid-weight, savory, broad and disarming wine to drink over the next 10-15 years." (2/2013) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated red.

It comes from one of the few biodynamic vineyards in Bordeaux, but you are likely to see many more, given the success that Tesseron seems to be having at all levels, both in his vineyards and in his fermentation/winemaking. An astounding, compelling wine with the classic Pauillac nose more often associated with its cross-street neighbor, Mouton-Rothschild, creme de cassis, there are also some violets and other assorted floral notes.

The wine has a black purple color and a brilliant nose of scorched earth, creme de cassis, espresso roast, blackberries, truffles and licorice.

Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine.

Harvest was October 15 to 17. The wine has really come on since I last tasted it, and it needs at least another 10 years of cellaring. The blend was 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

The average alcohol for the bottled wine is 14%. It has a gorgeously sweet nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, subtle barbecue smoke and charcoal followed by full body, beautiful intensity, great purity, stature and length. The influence of any oak is minimal, despite the fact that 90% new French oak was used. Needless to say, this is an example of modern-styled winemaking at it’s finest, and arguments that such wines will not age well, do not represent their terroir , and are soul-less, are totally groundless. Give it 5 or so years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years. This is one of the great Margaux wines of the vintage. (RP)" (02/2013)

94 points James Suckling: "This is the best Meyney in years with blackberry, mint and minerals on the nose and palate. Full and super silky, with a long, long finish. Wonderful wine." (4/2011) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is good to see this well-situated estate in St.-Estephe get back on track. The 2010 has loads of beef blood, charcuterie and smoked game along with black currant fruit. Some underlying graphite notes are also present in this full-bodied, meaty, fleshy wine, which has outstanding concentration and the potential to last for 15 or more years. It is a major sleeper of the vintage." (2/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Solid ...Read More »

2010 l'Eglise Clinet, Pomerol

98 points James Suckling: "Sweet berries with hints of incense and spices on the nose with black truffles. Very ripe but not over-the-top. This is full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a smoky wood and mushroom undertone. It's dense and impressive yet very balanced. I like it, slightly better quality than the 2009. Give the wine five or six years of bottle age to soften before opening." (2/2013) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine will likely be a major superstar with about 10-15 years of cellaring. It was one of the more closed and difficult wines to penetrate and one of probably only a dozen or so 2010s that ...Read More »

2010 Marquis de Terme, Margaux

92 points James Suckling: "A wine with dried meats and berries on the nose and palate. Full body, beautiful fine tannins and a juicy finish finish. Chewy tannins. Still needs time to come together. Try in 2016." (2/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This is alluring, with the sappy feel of the kirsch, dark plum and loganberry fruit melded nicely to a charcoal spine. The long, smoldering finish reveals a singed iron note and features good grip. Should evolve nicely. Best from 2015 through 2030. (JM)" (3/2013) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Juicy, though a little on the lean side, this wine shows a strong flavor of black currant while its tannin ...Read More »

2010 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien (1.5L) Back In Stock!
2010 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien (1.5L)

93-94 points James Suckling: "What a depth of fruit here, with dark chocolate and currants and blackberries. Full and velvety. Wonderful texture. Like it. Better than 2009." (4/2011) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fruity and juicy, this showcases the accessibility of this estate, while also highlighting some of the tannic structure of its big brother, Léoville-Barton. There is a classic black-currant note that’s balanced by the firm tannins of the vintage." (2/2013) 94 points Wine Spectator: "**V Sweet and fresh with black cherry flavors. The usual elegance of this wine fits perfectly with the hardness of the vintage." (3/2013) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another wine showi ...Read More »

2010 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac 12-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "The aromas to this are incredible with blueberry, minerals, dried flowers, and stones. It goes to dried meat and spices. Full body and incredibly integrated with blackberry, licorice, and minerals. There's a wonderful purity to this. It goes on for minutes. The quality of tannins is amazing. Seamless...Try after 2018." (2/2013) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolutely amazing wine, from grapes harvested between the end of September and October 17, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot has close to 15% natural alcohol. It comes ...Read More »

2010 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien 12-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine out distances both Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Barton, but all three of them are compelling efforts. Full-bodied, dense purple in color, with floral notes intermixed with blackberries, cassis, graphite and spring flowers, this full-bodied, legendary effort is long and opulent, with wonderfully abundant yet sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate and a thrilling, nearly one-minute finish. This spectacular effort from Poyferre that should drink well for 30+ years. (RP)" (2/2013) 98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A wine of architectural strength and classica ...Read More »

2010 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion (3L)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine boasts 14.6% natural alcohol and is a final blend of roughly three-fourths Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, cropped at a ridiculously low 19 hectoliters per hectare. Notes of licorice, garrigue, incense, smoked meats, espresso, creme de cassis and blackberry liqueur jump from the glass of this unbelievably intense wine. Remarkably full, with compelling freshness and precision, this is a fabulous effort in 2010. It will probably close down over the next several years, and not re-emerge for at least a decade, something that often happens with t ...Read More »

2010 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan 12-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 2010 Haut-Brion, it does not have the power of Latour’s 2010 or the intense lead pencil shavings and chocolaty component of Lafite-Rothschild, but it is extraordinary, perfect wine. It has a slightly lower pH than the 2009 (3.7 versus the 2009's 3.8), and even higher alcohol than the 2009 (14.6%). The wine is ethereal. From its dense purple color to its incredibly subtle but striking aromatics that build incrementally, offering up a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas ranging from charcoal and camphor to black currant and blueberry liqueur and s ...Read More »

2010 Margaux, Margaux (6L) Top Pick!
2010 Margaux, Margaux (6L)

100 points James Suckling: "This was phenomenal from barrel and remains so. The aromas are spellbinding. It smells like a bouquet of pink roses and then goes to currants, berries and citrus. Full body, with wonderfully refined tannins. It starts discretely and then grows to different levels and dimensions like a slow but big high tide. The texture is so beautiful. Try it in 2020 or beyond." (2/2013) 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 is a brilliant Chateau Margaux, as one might expect in this vintage. The percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the final blend hit 90%, the balance Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and o ...Read More »

There is a classic black-currant note that's balanced by the firm tannins of the vintage. (RV)" (2/2013) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Tightly focused, with a beam of cassis and blackberry fruit framed by integrated espresso and charcoal notes. The ample structure drives the polished finish, allowing extra notes of plum sauce, pastis and blueberry coulis to stride through. Shows serious grip at the very end. Best from 2016 through ...Read More »

2010 Figeac, St-Emilion 6-pack in OWC

98 points James Suckling: "Intense aromas of wet earth, leaves, sweet berries and cinnamon follow through to a full body, velvety and dense tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Opulent style. Just opening now, but this shows lots of stuffing, even if it does tighten down on the palate. Integrated and fine. Drink or hold." (2/2017) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine always stands out as a powerhouse of impressive tannins. In 2010, it is complex with a dense structure, tight mineral texture and dense wood. Underneath, the ripe black fruits bring the promise for the long-term f ...Read More »
