1988 Haut-Bages-Averous, Pauillac

93 points Wine Spectator: "The second wine of Château Lynch-Bages is very tightly wound, with an elegant core of black cherry, herb and cedar flavors cloaked in tough but fine tannins. This is a wine with obvious style and class. Not for early drinking. *#81 of Top 100 Wines of 1991*" (4/1991)

2000 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (97RP, 96WS, 95JS, 95WE, 94ST, 92W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beginning to open magnificently, the still dense purple-colored 2000 reveals a blossoming bouquet of blackberries, cassis, graphite and pen ink. 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. (RP)" (08/2011)

(2/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Fresh and dancing. Some great vivacity. Spice and complete and fresh. Dry end. Edge of a sweet spice reminiscent of gingerbread men. Lovely and polished. Juicy." (4/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Le Pauillac de Château Latour has a pleasant strictness on the well-defined bouquet with black fruit laced with fine mineralité for a third wine.

2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

97 points James Suckling: "This red shows lots of redcurrants and fresh flowers on the nose. It’s full-bodied with juicy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to resolve some of the tannins. Beautiful Cabernet character, but already a joy to taste." (2/2017) 95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Grand Puy Lacoste is superb. Dark, dense and inviting, the 2014 possesses remarkable depth and richness. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco all develop in the glass, but it is the overall feel that is most impressive.

2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

96 points James Suckling: "A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused. Lovely now to drink but better in 2017." (10/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous. There's something ethereal about its tannins, like a chocolate truffle melting in the mouth. (Daniel Ll ...Read More »

It is spice, packed with black plum and berry flavors. It is a powerful dense wine to age for several years. Drink from 2023.

The palate is medium-bodied with a surprisingly lithe and sensual opening, more red fruit than other vintages of Grand Puy Lacoste with satisfying precision and mineralité on the finish. This is excellent. (NM)" (6/2017) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Black cherry, licorice, leather and minerals on the nose.

Full-bodied and extremely finely textured on the palate, lasting for minutes. A joy to drink now. Get some." (11/2015) 93 points Vinous: "Medium red. Very ripe aromas of plum and musky brown spices; redder in character and less precise than the 2006.

Alcohol and fruit balance are lower than other top years and give this wine freshness and energy." (4/2016) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is sumptuous, ripe and generously fruity. It has a black core of dry plum skin and spice. The richness is topped by acidity, forming a contrast with the tannic core.

2014 Bellegrave, Pauillac

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Bellegrave has a conservative, you could almost say predictable bouquet, one that is well defined with stony, black fruit, hints of smoke and truffle. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, lovely delineation and focus, an extremely nuanced Pomerol that expresses that enclave of gravel soil in the western flank of the appellation. There is very astute winemaking here, a beautifully crafted Pomerol from the western flank of the appellation that will age with style.

An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate.

1994 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark ruby/purple-colored, with a crushed, pure cassis aroma, this excellent, medium to full-bodied wine reveals sweet fruit on the attack, plenty of tannin, but not the inner-core of richness and density exhibited by such other 1994 Pauillacs as Pichon-Lalande, Grand-Puy-Lacoste, and Pontet-Canet. To its credit, the 1994 Pichon-Baron does not reveal any vegetal notes. It should evolve nicely for 10-15 years, representing an attractive, well-made, medium-bodied, classically rendered Bordeaux.

A seamless tannin texture. Great wine. You want to drink it now!" (4/2017) 96-99 points Vinous: "The 2016 Pontet-Canet has been absolutely brilliant on the three occasions I’ve tasted it so far. Exotically ripe, powerful and voluptuous, it brings together the richness of the 2009 with the structure of the 2010.

2010 Les Tourelles de Longueville, Pauillac

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries and spices with lots of fresh flowers. Full body, with a beautiful core of ripe fruit that balances beautifully with the tannins and bright acidity. A wine for the future yet so enjoyable now. Second wine of Pichon Baron." (2/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Dark, sleek and inviting, with gorgeous plum cake, fig and blackberry coulis notes mixing with melted licorice snap and tar on the finish. Not small by any stretch, with mouthwatering acidity and vivacity pulling you in now. Should develop with cellaring. Drink now through 2025. (JM)" (3/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The second wine ...Read More »

1969 Pibran, Pauillac (1.5L)

Perched upon a 17-acre in a hilltop in the famed Pauillac region, Château Pibran boasts such prestigious neighbors as Mouton-Rothschild and Pontet-Canet. The estate dates back to the start of the 20th century. Its well-drained gravel site is planted mostly to Merlot, plus Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Petit Verdot, making it the vineyard with perhaps the largest percentage of Merlot in Pauillac. In fact, the wine is often a near-even split of Merlot and Cabernet, giving it a unique lushness in Cab-dominated Pauillac. In 1969, the estate was still own... Read More »

2014 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac (1.5L)

94 points James Suckling: "Extremely floral and fresh with currants, light chocolate and orange peel. Red clay, too. Full-bodied, firm, silky and long with a flavorful finish. Salty undertone. Stones. Really serious. Better in 2021." (2/2017) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This property continues its upward trend. It is a solid wine, packed with great ripe fruit. Old vines give extra concentration and depth of flavor. The wine has great potential, with both its tannins and rich fruit playing strongly. Drink from 2023. (RV)" (2/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Clerc Milon is another juicy, fruit-driven wine from the Mouton Rothschild ...Read More »

1989 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac Top Pick!
1989 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

96 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers so much blackberry, leather and dried fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with ultrapolished tannins and a silky mouthfeel. The palate turns to leaves, cedar and dried berries on the finish, which goes on and on. This is still reserved for the vintage, suggesting a long life ahead. Just coming around now, but will improve many years ahead. I have always loved this Lynch. (JS, Web-2010)" 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I have tasted the Château Lynch Bages 1989 several times since my last penned note in 2010. It is such a consistent wine, a Pauillac that never lets you down. Here it ...Read More »

2012 Bellegrave, Pauillac

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Bellegrave has an intriguing, rather saline/brine scented bouquet with expressive Cabernet Franc. It takes a little time to find its delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grippy tannins. The Cabernet Franc component forms its conspicuous back bone - a Pomerol that is classic and “cool” in style. Nicely focused and delineated on the finish with well-integrated oak, don’t be surprised to find this blooming in several years. (NM)" (3/2013) James Suckling: "Some raspberry and currant character with citrus undertones. Medium to full body, firm tannin ...Read More »

1982 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, Pauillac (bin soiled label)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blockbuster was a sleeper of the vintage long before the Rothschilds invested so heavily in modernizing this estate as well as began making a stricter selection. Close to full maturity, the 1982 Duhart Milon exhibits classic notes of creme de cassis, cedar, and flowers, medium to full body, a high level of glycerin, and a lusciousness and fleshiness that are very much in keeping with the vintage. There is a slight amount of pink at the rim, but this beauty should keep for another ten years. (RP)" (6/2009) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full, saturated red. Aromatic nose of plum, sm ...Read More »

2005 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft. Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, balanced by unrelenting purity of fruit that somehow manages to anesthetize the monstrous tannin, to soften the extremely dry, mineral-bound finish into a caress. The wine may be bombastic, but it's also succulent and as sweet as a ripe black raspberry. It's easy to imagine this wine 50 years from now, in impeccable condition." (10/2008) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A great, classic Pauillac, with its dark, dense, almost black currant ...Read More »

2006 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Pontet-Canet has an extremely pure, vivacious, perfumed bouquet with crushed violets infusing the blueberry and blackberry fruit. But it is all about the detail and precision in this wine. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip in the mouth: lightly toasted black fruit, dried orange peel, cedar and a pinch of white pepper. This feels very cohesive and poised with just a touch of mint entering right on the finish. What a great wine from Alfred Tesseron and Jean-Michel ...Read More »

2003 Latour, Pauillac

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Administrator Frederic Engerer says the 2003 is 'the sexiest Latour ever made.' He also described it as 'the 1990 without any brettanomyces.' I loved this wine from the barrel and was fortunate enough to be able to purchase a small quantity, enjoying every bottle I have had. A profound example of Chateau Latour, the full-bodied, opulent 2003 is already performing well at age eleven, which is somewhat atypical. The pH is a relatively high 3.8, which also indicates low acidity. The wine is very ripe, but not over-ripe, offers great freshness, and lots of c ...Read More »

2014 Fleur de Pedesclaux, Pauillac

90 points James Suckling: "Quite developed soy-sauce and earth nose. A solid wine with quite a firm core, but it’s not very charming at the moment. The harmony on the finish is good though." (2/2017) K&L Notes: The second wine of the hottest new Pauillac - Pedesclaux. A more flowery wine with good red fruit flavors and some tannin to shed.

2014 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac Top Pick!
2014 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has the finest, dusty tannins that float through the structure. Don't be deceived, though—this rich, sophisticated wine will age very well, thanks to its weight and power. It also has poised elegance that is so stylish and already attractive. (RV)" (4/2015) 95 points James Suckling: "Irony and smoky intensity on the very youthful nose. Really rich and tannic, but as it flows over your palate it becomes more and more suave and complex. This is a concentrated, long-term wine that demands some patience but should richly reward it." (2/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pichon-Longue ...Read More »
