2009 Clarke Rothschild, Listrac

Jancis Robinson: "Slightly peppery fruit and fragrant mid palate. Firm tannins but still pretty well balanced and showed well after a run of right-bank richness. Drink 2014-2023." (10/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the better Clarkes ever made, this wine from the cool, backwater appellation of Listrac displays serious density, an opaque ruby/purple color, and lots of earth, black currants and raspberries. Drink it over the next 10-12 years." (2/2012) Wine Spectator: "This delivers a direct beam of red and black currant fruit, liberally laced with tobacco and roasted cedar notes that hang through the lightly fi ...Read More »

2009 Grand Corbin Manuel, St-Emilion (1.5L) Top Pick!
2009 Grand Corbin Manuel, St-Emilion (1.5L)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of several châteaux in Saint-Émilion with the name Corbin attached, this is a finely made, ripe, dusty wine. It conveys a southern French feel with its rich fruitiness and powerful dry tannins. It has concentration and power, and will develop well over the medium-term. Drink from 2016." (6/2014) 90 points Wine Spectator: "This is on the tangy side, featuring a nice sanguine streak that runs through the blackberry and black cherry fruit. The fine-grained finish shows a roasted apple wood edge. Not big, but offers nice range and focus." (6/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Grand-Corbin-Manuel’s offering exhibi ...Read More »

2009 Tronquoy-Lalande, St-Estèphe

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 100 Wines of 2012* The tannins are very fine, with rich fruitcake and smoky flavors. Red berry and black plums give a fruity character, along with delicious acidity. The wine is structured while still remaining very approachable. (RV)" (4/2012) 92 points James Suckling: "Big and massive wine for this appellation. Some may say too much but loads of fruit underneath. Full and chewy. Needs two to three years to soften." (7/2014) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Tronquoy Lalande, a blend of 51% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot, is the finest wine they have yet produced.

2009 Malmaison, Moulis-en-Médoc Top Pick!
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 Paloumey, Haut-Médoc

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Top 100 Wines of 2012*** With a blend that is half Cabernet Sauvignon, half Merlot, this is as rich as the year. The weight of fruit is borne by sweet tannins and layers of wood toast. There is a very dense dusty texture along with fine acidity and final blackberry fruit. It is for aging over the next 4-5 years. (RV)" (2/2012) Jancis Robinson: "55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Dark crimson. Very seductive ripe purple fruit aromas. Very sweet start - all stops are pulled out here! Very modern and, for the Médoc, flashy. A dramatic wine that should ...Read More »

2009 La Tour Carnet, Haut-Médoc

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This dense purple wine displays notes of charcoal, subtle toast and white chocolate as well as blueberry and blackberry liqueur intermixed with hints of graphite and licorice. Dense, full-bodied, unctuously textured, and quite long and thick, this concentrated, impressively endowed wine is silky-textured and already accessible. However, I suspect its best days are at least 5-7 years ahead of it. It should keep for a minimum of two decades. One of the few classified growths in the southern end of the Medoc south of Margaux, La Tour Carnet has been owned f ...Read More »

2009 Nairac, Sauternes

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Nicolas Tari oversaw a sensational 2009 Chateau Nairac. It has a richer bouquet compared to the 2010 with exuberant, explosive scents of acacia honey, dried apricot and a hint of petrol that transposes the exoticism of the vintage. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous opening. There is plenty of vibrant spicy fruit, interwoven with orange rind and pineapple, leading to a beautifully focused an intense finish. Stack this high in your cellar. Drink 2016-2040+. Tasted March 2014. (NM)" (6/2014) 92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale, full yellow. Racy aromas of pear, apple, peach and ma ...Read More »

2009 Tour Saint-Fort, St-Estèphe

Richly dark in color, with the purple-blue highlights of youth. The nose is seductive and ample, with touches of toasty oak and baking spice. With robust tannins, this youngster is yummy now, but makes a good candidate for the cellar.

2009 Les Tourelles de Longueville, Pauillac

Excellent second wine from Pichon Baron. Try after 2018." (2/2012) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A polished, fleshy, forward style, with velvety-textured notes of crushed plum, fig sauce and mulled cherry fruit laced with sweet spice and cocoa hints. A licorice edge drives the finish along. Drink now through 2018."

(9/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Loads of berry fruit intermixed with some roasted herbs, spice box and licorice can be found in this excellent Haut-Medoc, which has medium body, lots of fragrance and very pure flavors. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. (RP)" (2/2012) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby-red. Enticing nose hints at sweet blackberry, cedar and flinty minerals.

Wonderful length too. One of the best wines from here in a number of years. Best in 2016. (JS)" (2/2012) 90 points Vinous: "Good full ruby.

2009 du Tertre, Margaux

93 points James Suckling: "Plenty of sweet tobacco with plum and berry character that follows through to a full body, with super polished tannins. Silky and stylish. Lovely chocolate, toasted oak and coffee too. Gorgeous balance." (4/2012) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A wine that continues the impressive rise of du Tertre. It is becoming one of the sure values of Margaux, and this 2009 is both ripe and finely balanced. The acidity boosts the rich fruits, sweet tannins and the warm finish.

2009 Haut-Carles, Fronsac

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Right up there with the best of the Fronsacs, the 2009 Haut-Carles is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest split between Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Boasting Dr. Alain Raynaud as the oenologist/consultant, an abundance of crushed rock, blueberry, graphite and chalky notes are present in this dense purple wine, which is full-bodied, rich and clearly an over-achiever in this vintage or any other. Drink it over the next 10-15+ years. (RP)" (2/2012) 91 points James Suckling: "Blueberry and flowers on nose, with dark chocolate. Full body, with firm tannins and a chewy finish.

Should settle in nicely. Stéphane Derenoncourt consulting here. Best from 2012 through 2017." (3/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Light crimson. Smells sweet and light. Very forward and rather soft but lots of fun. Fine tannins perceptible only on the very end of the palate."

Plenty dense on the finish, with nicely integrated cocoa and tar notes. A fine 2009 Pessac that should fill out nicely in the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2024. 2,080 cases made. (JM)" (3/2012)

Lots of anise, spice and tar frames the finish. Stéphane Derenoncourt consulting here. Best from 2012 through 2019." (3/2012) K&L Notes: The blend for the 2009 Château Maison Blanche is 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc is usually not included in this wine, but was in 2009 because it came in so perfectly. This is stunningly delicious...blackberries and toasty oak abound.

The palate is fleshy but not cloying with layers of ripe sweet red fruit, leading to a very lithe sensual finish where the oak is supremely well integrated. Bravo! (NM)" (1/2012) K&L Notes: Château Le Bourdieu is situated close to the mouth of the Gironde and is planted to half Cabernet Sauvignon and half Merlot. The river helps balance temperature and humidity and contributes to a gentle ripening process. The wine is fermented in steel and c... Read More »

2009 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou will eclipse the brilliant wines produced in 2005, 2003 and 2000. It will be interesting to see how the 2009 fares against the 2010 after twenty years of aging, but my money is on the 2009. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, this inky purple, unctuous wine possesses classic aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, blueberries, violets, licorice and Christmas fruitcake. Full-bodied and intense with Ducru’s inimitable elegance and purity, it should firm up in the bottle after 7-10 ye ...Read More »

Solid as a rock. Best ever from here. Try in 2019." (2/2012) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "While it has weight and richness, this is also seriously structured, a wine packed with dry tannins. The potential is all there—the sweet fruit of the vintage along with a solid texture and final acidity." (2/2012) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big, powerful Margaux that should age for 20+ years, this inky purple-colored wine exhibits notes of spring f ...Read More »

There is concentration, but it is surrounded by so much richness. It can almost be drunk now, but should age well. (RV)" (3/2012) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very dense and still rather reserved, with dark blueberry, blackberry and fig notes rolled together, framed by freshly brewed espresso and Black Forest cake notes. Long and tarry through the finish, with a melted licorice snap note hanging on at the very end. (JM)" (3/2012) 92 points James Suckling: "Blueberry and currant aromas fo ...Read More »

Aromas of cherry, blackberry, black currant, a rich and mellow mouth, almost chocolatey. The tannins are dense but silky, giving a beautiful amplitude and length.

Frederic Engerer, president of Latour, uses the word "succulent" to describe it. He’s right. I like the word gorgeous as well. Try in 2018, but hard not to drink."

This massive, extraordinarily rich, unctuously textured wine may be the most concentrated effort produced to date, although the 2000, 2005 and 2010 are nearly as prodigious.

93 points James Suckling: "Very classy nose here of minerals, currants and hints of freshly cut flowers. Full-bodied, with super silky tannins and a beautiful combination of ripe fruits and bright acidity. Tension to this. Juicy. Best ever from here." (4/2012) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In a somewhat tragic twist, this over-achieving cru bourgeois in Haut-Medoc has turned in its finest wine to date, an unfined cuvee made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 20% Petit Verdot, created by the late proprietor Vincent Mulliez, who died suddenly last year. Sadly, this was his best effort. Notes of blackberri ...Read More »

2009 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol (93JS, 93RP, 91WS, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Over-achievers in short, the 2009 La Fleur de Bouard is fabulous, with notes of blueberry, plum, licorice, white flowers and camphor followed by a full-bodied, well-endowed, textured, supple wine. Stunningly concentrated, yet silky and seductive, it should be drunk over the next 10+ years. Both of these wines, from the 50-acre estate owned by Hubert de Bouard, are the reference points for Lalande de Pomerol." (02/2012)

2009 Lagrange, St-Julien

94 points James Suckling: "This is very reserved right now but shows impressive blueberry and blackberry character. It’s full- bodied, with a super density of fruit and ripe tannins." (7/2014) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe wine, with soft tannins allied to great density. Weight and lovely, juicy, final fruit flavors meld together easily. This is solid, dense, impressive and for long-term aging." (2/2012) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated medium ruby. Sexy aromas of cassis, licorice, menthol and cedar. Tightly wound, classic and intense, with sharply delineated flavors of dark berries, violet and minerals complemented by well-integra ...Read More »

2009 Canon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "Aromas of nuts, spices, chocolate powder, then changes to fruits and flowers. Fascinating. Full body, with silky tannins and a wonderful intensity and super polished tannins with a long, long finish. Super refined. Best Canon in years. Try in 2016." (2/2012) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Hugely dense, foursquare wine with great fruit and the purest tannins. Chocolate and coffee predominate at the same time as sweet tannins and acidity. A wine that combines charm with great power." (3/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest Canon since the 1982, the 2009 (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) reveals a dense blue/ ...Read More » 



2009 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac Top Pick!
2009 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Mouton-Rothschild is as concentrated as the 2010, but it presents itself in a more consumer-friendly, seductive style. 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.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Providence, Pomerol (OWC - 95JS, 95WE, 94RP, 94WS, (89-92ST)) in original wood. Wine Enthusiast: "Densely fruity wine, all sweetness and richness without too much weight. It does have power, a dark core, but it is the sweet balance that is so attractive. There is a layer of acidity as well, giving freshness to the final character of the wine." (02/2012)

2009 Pétrus, Pomerol

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An opulent Petrus very much in the stylistic family of the 1990, this 100% Merlot has a dense plum/purple color and a sweet nose of mulberries, black cherries, some subtle toast and licorice as well as a floral element. A wine of great intensity, a multidimensional mouthfeel and full-bodied, stunning concentration, the 2009 Petrus 2009 is everything one would expect of it. Given the sweetness of its tannin, much like the 1990, I suspect this wine will always be “open for business,” appealing even in its youth. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2050+. (RP) ...Read More »

2009 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion (375ml)

100 points 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 ...Read More »

2009 Pape-Clément Blanc, Pessac-Léognan
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Pape-Clément Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (100JS, 100RP, 94WE, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pape Clement Blanc is an absolutely remarkable wine, which is not a surprise given what this historic estate has done in both white and red over the last 20 years. Their white wine, an intriguing blend of 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 35% Semillon, 16% Sauvignon Gris and the rest Muscadelle, comes from 7.5 acres of pure gravelly soil. An exquisite nose of honeysuckle, tropical fruit, pineapple, green apples, and orange and apricot marmalade soar from the glass. Great acidity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a texture more akin to great grand cru white Burgundy put this wine in a class by itself. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were others who also think this is pure perfection in white Bordeaux. I tasted this wine four separate times and gave it a perfect score three of the four times. It is one of most exquisite dry white I have ever tasted from anywhere -- peri
