2008 Pavie-Decesse, St-Emilion (Previously $149)

94 points James Suckling: "Lovely fruit with chocolate and berries and raspberries. Full and round fine silky and elegant. Very fresh and long. Beautiful. I like the freshness. Try it in four to five years." (12/2010) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another top-notch effort, the 2008 is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc produced from yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare. It reached 14% natural alcohol, no doubt because of the extremely late harvest. A deep purple color is accompanied by massive notes of blackberries, incense, fruitcake, camphor and toasty oak intermixed with a crushed chalk-like mineral ...Read More »

2008 Gloria, St-Julien

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stunning sleeper of the vintage, this beautiful, already irresistible, plum/garnet-colored 2008 is a wine to purchase by the case. It possesses a dense plum/purple color, a glorious perfume of Christmas fruitcake, cedarwood, black currants, jammy cherries and licorice, medium to full body and a silky personality. It will provide both a hedonistic and intellectual turn-on over the next 10-15 years. (RP)" (4/2011) Wine Spectator: "This polished red shows good grip from the ripe, well-integrated tannins, which support plum, currant, loam and tobacco flavors. Not heavy, but ...Read More »

2008 l'Arrosée, St-Emilion

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A racy, noble offering from this terrific vineyard, the 2008 l’Arrosee exhibits admirable purity and elegance as well as sweet raspberry and kirsch-like fruit, and underlying floral and crushed rock notes. Medium to full-bodied with ripe tannin, this is a long, intense, rich, but delicate, light on its feet St.-Emilion to consume over the next 15-20 years." (4/2009) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Exotic aromas and flavors of raspberry, sandalwood, incense, smoky oak and white pepper. Smooth, sweet and nicely delineated, with insidious acidity giving shape and lift to the ...Read More »

2008 Goulée, Médoc

90 points James Suckling: "This is the best ever from here. It’s from the owners of fabulous second growth Cos d’Estournel. Aromas of blueberries and sandalwood follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Clean and pretty. Best after 2011." (12/2010) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Goulee 2008 has a very tertiary bouquet with good intensity: autumnal and leafy, lots of sous-bois and green leaves. The palate is very sweet on the entry; fleshy and broad in the mouth with black cherries and boysenberry, leading to a fine pencil lead and tobacco-tinged finish. Very fine. Tasted January 20 ...Read More »

2008 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Pichon Longueville Baron is one of the densest, most concentrated wines of Pauillac in 2008. An inky/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, blackberries, charcoal, coffee and licorice. Exceptionally full-bodied with velvety tannins and undeniable appeal, this gorgeous, well-proportioned, larger than life 2008 should age effortlessly for two decades or more. (RP)" (5/2011) 94 points James Suckling: "Wow. So much bright fruit in this with orange peel and black currant character. Floral and lively. Full body, silky tannins ...Read More »

2008 Latour, Pauillac

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Expressive fruit aromas and wood perfumes announce this wine. With 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a complex wine marked by purity of black fruits, berries, toast and tannins. It has power, richness and a lovely edge of spice to go with the acidity. The wine is firmly structured, while bursting with fruit and freshness. (RV)" (4/2011) 95 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous aromas. Sandalwood and flowers, so perfumed and beautiful. Spices and currants with cassis too. Amazing nose. Such beauty and density with an iron and pure fruit character. Solid and racy. Best aft ...Read More »

2008 de Fieuzal, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big time sleeper of the vintage and a terrific success for Fieuzal, the 2008 is a wine to buy given its realistic price. Dense plum/purple-colored with a soaring bouquet of blue and black fruits, unsmoked cigar tobacco, lead pencil shavings and spring flowers, it is a suave, savory, medium to full-bodied, remarkably silky, appealing wine to enjoy over the next 12-15 years. Bravo! (RP)" (5/2011) 90 points James Suckling: "A chewy young red, with plum and vanilla aromas and flavors. Full and juicy yet tight and rich. Give it a few years to soften. Best after 2012." (12/2010) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright re ...Read More »

2008 d'Armailhac, Pauillac

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is very black currant in character, with crisp fresh fruits to go with the bright acidity. There are tannins certainly, lightened by the fruity character of the wine." (04/11) 89 points Robert Parker: " A dense plum/purple color is followed by a supple, evolved, medium-bodied wine revealing an elegant bouquet of red and black currants, charcoal, toast and earth. Enjoy this impressive 2008 over the next 12-15 years." (05/11) 89 points Wine Spectator: "BWarm tobacco, mulled plum and dark fig notes move through this medium... Read More »

2008 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A magnificent sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Duhart Milon is the shrewd consumer’s wine to purchase by the case as prices do not yet reflect its qualitative resurgence. Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that came in at 13.09% alcohol, it is a surprisingly intense effort displaying a marvelous texture, plenty of black currant, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning purity as well as density. Enjoy this top-notch 2008 over the next 20-25 years. (RP)" (5/2011) 92 points James Suckling: "Lead pencil and tobacco ...Read More »

2008 La Mission-Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan
Bid on this bottle of 2008 La Mission-Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (95RP, 95WE, 93JS, 92ST, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like a lot of wines in this underrated vintage, the 2008 La Mission was one of the great bargains of recent vintages. Its healthy blue/purple color is followed by aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, licorice, truffles, underbrush and forest floor. The scorched earthy/smoky character of this estate’s terroir has not yet emerged. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated with good acidity, freshness and delineation, this is a big wine for the vintage, but also very classic in its balance of tannin, acidity and extract. It will benefit from another 5-7 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades. (RP)" (08/2012)

2008 La Mission-Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (qty: 1)

2008 L'Eglise-Clinet, Pomerol

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A remarkable wine in this vintage, L’Eglise Clinet’s 2008 has a color almost as dark as the barrel sample of 2010. Classic mocha and caramel-infused creme de cassis and black cherry notes, with hints of licorice and loamy soil soar from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple, aromatically compelling wine. Opulent, expansive, and savory, with a broad texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, terrific purity and a layered finish, this is another big, massive wine that transcends the vintage character, and will probably need 7-10 years of bottle age. It should keep f ...Read More »

2008 La Violette, Pomerol

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fashioned from yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare with 13.5% natural alcohol, the opaque ruby-hued 2008 exhibits tell-tale floral notes intertwined with raspberries, sweet black cherries, licorice and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and strikingly pure as well as multilayered, the 2008, despite its precociousness, will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for 20-25 years. It is one of the top successes of the vintage. (RP)" (5/2011) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Superripe aromas of blackberry and licorice. Fat, lush and sweet, with excell ...Read More »
