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."

2009 Cos Labory, St Estephe (Previously $50)

93 points Decanter: "Sumptuous cassis and blackberry nose, with some stylish new oak.

2009 Ormes De Pez, St-Estèphe

92 points James Suckling: "A big and chewy wine with plum and currant character. Full body, lots of tannins and a big backbone. Needs at least three to four years of age." (7/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A delicious wine, so fruity. It does have the proper tannins but it is a wine that is already approachable with its sweet fruits-a pleasure to taste. However, for the future, watch those tannins. (RV)" (2/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This is tight and precise, with lots of cut from start to finish, as chiseled graphite and iron notes support the dark currant, mulled fig and crushed blackberry fruit.

2009 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 2009 Château Doisy-Védrines already exudes impressive breeding on the nose with complex, beguiling scents of dried honey, quince, walnut and just a touch of barley sugar. The palate is medium-bodied with layers of viscous, honeyed fruit, superb acidity and wonderful precision on the finish. There is a sense of completeness and harmony to this Doisy-Védrines. The 2009 represents the apogee for the estate and a Barsac destined to generously repay long-term cellaring.

2009 Les Grands Chenes, Médoc

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the cru bourgeois estates in the empire of Bernard Magrez, this may possibly be the best wine Les Grands Chenes has yet made. From old vines (average age 45) in the very northern part of the Medoc, the final blend of 51% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc hit 14% natural alcohol. The wine displays loads of espresso roast, black chocolate, creme de cassis, forest floor and tobacco leaf in a full-bodied, opulent, and flamboyant style.

The superb quality of the Cabernet Franc comes through here. Better in 2015." (2/2012) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Concentrated, dark wine that edges towards austere.

This is structured and powerful. Needs at least five to six years to come around. Best Monbousquet ever?" (4/2012) 94 points Wine Spectator: "This very structured, but polished, style shows a solid coat of coffee for the large core of crushed fig, plum sauce and steeped black currant fruit.

Jancis Robinson: "Finely textured and attractively savoury. Dry, quite delicate and restrained, especially for 2009. (16.5/20 points)" (4/2013) K&L Notes: The second wine of Branaire-Ducru, this red is ready to drink three to five years after the harvest. And, according to the producer, this wine will evolve even further for the next two decades. Made from vines under 15 years old. Gravity fed, maceration for approximately three weeks and stored in 60-65% new French oak for 16-20 months post-fermentation.

The team from Pontet Canet, who have done such a phenomenal job at that estate, were in charge of making this Senejac, and the result, not surprisingly, is a sensational wine that consumers need to buy by the case. Dense purple, with notes of creme de cassis, incense, licorice and forest floor, this wine is delicious and full-bodied, with sweet tannins, low acidity, copious fruit and exceptional concentration.

2009 Fugue de Nenin, Pomerol

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Fugue de Nenin is a delicious, soft, finesse-styled Pomerol with elegant mulberry, plum, cherry fruit.

This Sauternes is wonderfully long and dense with superb purity and precision. Extravagant sweet wine. Drinks amazingly well already now, so why wait?"

An equal blend of Semillon and Sauvignon, it delivers a record 220gms residual sugar and yet still exudes astounding minerality and precision, with touches of clear honey, frangipane and cold wet stones.
