2000 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
2000 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

95 points Decanter: "Intense, focused, cedary nose. Super-ripe and sumptuous, highly concentrated, but has spice and vigour to counter the fruit. Massive, pungent; full of life and nuance. Long, vibrant finish. Drink from 2012. (19 points)" (11/2010) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Upgraded in score over my original rating, which was several points lower, Alfred Tesseron has done a remarkable job since 1994 with Pontet-Canet, which has been hitting first-growth levels since 2003. But the 2000 also shows exceptionally well. In need of another decade of cellaring, this dense purple wine has a classic nose of i ...Read More »

2010 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac Top Pick!
2010 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

98 points James Suckling: "A wine with great beauty and finesse. Such elegance and ethereal quality for this estate. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a juicy delicious finish. Long and beautiful. This is the best Lynch in a long, long time. I love the precision here. Try in 2018." (11/2013) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Lynch Bages is an absolutely brilliant wine, and somewhat reminiscent at this stage in its development of the profound 1989. Jean-Charles Cazes, who took over for his father a number of years ago, has produced a magnificent wine with the classic creme de cassis note intermixed with ...Read More »

2012 Pédesclaux, Pauillac

91 points James Suckling: "This shows much more clarity than the 2011. Aromas of currants, lead pencil and flowers. Blueberries, too. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and beautiful fruit. This is a wine that shows finesse and structure for the vintage. Very polished and well made. Try in 2018." (3/2015) 91 points Vinous: "The 2012 Pédesclaux has been superb on both occasions I have tasted it recently. One of the real sleepers of the vintage, the 2012 is endowed with terrific depth and tons of personality. Dark cherry, raspberry, tobacco and wild flowers add multiple shades of dimension.

2015 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Vinous: "A dazzling, towering wine, the 2015 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has put on considerable weight in just the last few months. Today, the 2015 is vivid and intense, with a huge backbone of tannin and marvelous complexity. In 2015, the Cabernet Sauvignon is pushed higher as the Merlot was less consistent in its ripening. Graphite, charcoal, tobacco, crème de cassis and new leather are some of the signatures in what is shaping up to be a super-classic Pichon-Lalande. Simply put, the 2015 is one of the wines of the vintage. Tasted four times. (AG) ...Read More »

2012 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. With so much spicy fruit, intensely ripe blackberry flavors and solid tannins, all the elements of excellence are here, and powered by a firm structure. This wine has weight and a fine Cabernet concentration. (RV)" (4/2013) 93 points James Suckling: "This is very muscular with blackcurrant, blueberry and mineral character. Full and tight now but this shows a serious backbone of tannins and length. Try in 2018."

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."

Muscular but toned and beautiful." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Pure Cabernet flavors are right at the front of this wine.

This second wine of Château Pichon Longueville is packed with the vintage's hallmark of perfumed black-currant fruit. (RV)" (4/2013) 91 points James Suckling: "A beautiful red with chocolate, nuts and cappuccino aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, chewy and rich. Needs two or three years to soften.

The dryness of the tannins go right to the core, surrounded by chocolate, sweet fruit and dark berry flavors. The wine is well structured, big and bold, with plenty of firmness promising aging." (4/2010) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Latour is the most recent late-release from the First Growth estate that abandoned en primeur after the 2011 vintage.

Alcohol and fruit balance are lower than other top years and give this wine freshness and energy." (4/2016) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. 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."

2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, matured in 75% new oak and was picked between September 18 until October 4 (although the "real" picking commenced from September 21). Now, Grand-Puy-Lacoste is often quite "aloof" at this early juncture, but that is not the case with the 2015. This is more approachable aromatically, beautifully defined, thanks to that expressive Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin and finely tuned acidity (pH 3.68).

Fabulous harmony to this young wine. Very classic Bordeaux. Superb depth and length. Real Bordeaux." (4/2016) 95-98 points Vinous: "One of the wines of the vintage, the 2015 Pontet-Canet oozes class, finesse and pure pedigree.

Apparently Christian Seely made use of four additional 80-hectolitre wooden vats that augmented his stainless steel vessels. It has a very pure bouquet with lifted blackcurrant, blueberry and graphite aromas, beautifully delineated, the oak seamlessly embroidered with the fruit.

2012 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac

(2/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Long owned by Xavier Borie, this Pauillac estate sits next to Batailley and is just south of Borie’s other famous château, Grand-Puy-Lacoste. The 2012, dramatically better from bottle than barrel, is bigger boned, richer and more flamboyant than this wine normally tends to be.

2000 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Grand Puy Lacoste is even better than such recent vintages as 2005 and 2009. A broad, classic, large-scaled effort, it boasts a deep blue/purple color as well as tell-tale notes of creme de cassis, subtle smoke, flowers, and unsmoked tobacco. Powerful, full-bodied flavors have shed a lot of tannin, but they remain relatively youthful. This is a young adolescent, broadly flavored Pauillac with an enticing texture as well as abundant richness and fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but promises to hit its peak in five years, and last for two decades. ...Read More »

Second wine of Pichon Lalande. Better in 2016." (3/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant and silky, this slides down almost too easily, with delicious red and black currant fruit laced with hints of anise, violet and black tea.

According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%).

This medium to full-bodied, elegant, savory, broad wine is still five years away from full maturity. It should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years.

The dense, full-bodied 1989 is brilliantly made with huge, smoky, chocolatey, cassis aromas intermingled with scents of toasty oak. Well-layered, with a sweet inner-core of fruit, this awesomely endowed, backward, tannic, prodigious 1989 needs another 5-6 years of cellaring; it should last for three decades or more.

This represents a relatively high percentage of Merlot simply because, as winemaker Philippe Dhalluin told me, that quality was so good. I afforded my sample four to five minutes to open as it was a little reduced at first, but eventually it reveals a gorgeous, extraordinarily intense bouquet of blackberry, cassis, incense and cold slate aromas.

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "An intensely powerful, smooth wine, in a style that has an instant, sexy appeal. But it's not just surface glamour, there is a solid texture, layering the dusty tannins with rich black plums, red berries and vanilla." (6/2007) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An undeniable star of the vintage, Pichon-Baron’s 2004 boasts an inky/ruby/purple color to the rim as well as a big, sweet nose of melted licorice, chocolate, black currant jam, truffles, and charcoal embers. Soft tannin, full body, and abundant opulence and flesh are atypical for the vintage character, but this wine is loaded. Pure, ...Read More »

2006 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
2006 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 is a wine to stockpile, especially for those in their thirties and forties as it needs another decade to reach maturity, after which it should keep for 30+ years. This vineyard, just south of Mouton Rothschild, has produced an opaque bluish/purple-colored 2006 with an extraordinarily pure nose of graphite, charcoal, sweet creme de cassis, and a hint of scorched earth. Incredible concentration, stunning richness, and a 60-second finish result in a wine that transcends the vintage as well as this estate’s 1855 classification. This enormously endow ...Read More »

2012 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
2012 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

93 points James Suckling: "This shows incredible decadence and opulence for the vintage with dried meat, black berry, blueberries and hints of mushroom. Full body, very polished silky tannins and a chewy finish. Lots of richness for the vintage. Persistent palate. This was aged 35% in cement eggs for 12 months. Better in 2018." (2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This impeccably run, biodynamically farmed estate of Alfred Tesseron goes from strength to strength. The 2012 triumphs once again with its notes of dark plum, blackcurrant, licorice and almost a hint of truffle, its full-bodied, supple tannins, and b ...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 »

2015 Les Tourelles de Longueville, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This Merlot-dominant wine comes from a vineyard not too far from the river. It has acidity, freshness and a soft rounded texture. The black fruit is generous, soft and opulent. There are just enough tannins to give it a great shape. (RV)" (1/2016) 91-92 points James Suckling: "A fresh and very clean red with blueberry, blackberry and dark chocolate undertones. Medium to full body, fine tannins that give a soft texture and roundness. Mostly merlot gives this a friendly style. Second wine Pichon Baron." (4/2016) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Les Tourelles de Longueville is a blend of 55% Merlot, ...Read More »

2012 Les Griffons de Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Les Griffons de Pichon Baron is dark, voluptuous and immediate. A burst of sweet red plums, smoke, graphite, licorice and tobacco hits the palate. The tannins are sweet but also energetic. Extroverted in style, the 2012 also has enough depth and overall density to drink well for another decade or so. Rose petal, iron and white pepper add the final shades of nuance. Here in its first vintage, Les Griffons is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. (AG)" (1/2016) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The equivalent of an alternative second wine from Château Pichon Baron (with Les Tourell ...Read More »

2000 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac

92 points James Suckling: "Just starting to open now, with currant, tea leaf and berry character, along with a mineral undertone. Full body with firm tannins and a long finish. Another couple of years more of bottle age would be good, but why wait?" (7/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful wine and one of my favorites from this estate, this blend of nearly two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Merlot is aging impressively. Dense ruby/purple in color, with creme de cassis, charcoal, and sweet leathery and chocolatey notes intermixed with the classic Pauillac cedar and spice box, the wine is medium ...Read More »

2003 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac

94 points James Suckling: "A beautiful intensity to this wine, flowers, plums, and freshness on the nose. Full and rich, with round ripe tannins and a medium finish. Flavors of fresh herbs, flowers, and tobacco on the palate. A lovely wine right now, but give this some more time. Pull the cork in 2014." (4/2011) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is dominated by new wood, which goes right through the big, dark fruit flavors and tannins. Very ripe cassis flavors are under this wood, waiting likely for many years before the wood flavors subside. This is very much in the modern, polished style of Mouton today, ...Read More »

2012 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. The wine is very dry, layered tannins giving a major sense of structure. It will always have this dry, dense character, very firm, solid and powerful. (RV)" (4/2013) 92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrants, blueberries and lemons follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a fresh, clean finish. A little tight now but excellent. Precision to this. Back ended. Better in 2018." (2/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This has a very solid core of dark plum, crushed black currant and blackberry fruit, with lightly firm flesh and good drive through the finish, where alder and iron notes fi ...Read More »

2009 Echo de Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

91 points James Suckling: "So much crushed raspberry and hints of currants on the nose. Full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Second wine of Lynch Bages. Try after 2018." (2/2012) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers a lesson in Pauillac, with sleek black currant and fig fruit melded together, laced with graphite, tobacco and roasted cedar notes and backed by a long, iron-driven finish. This has grip, but the wine is made in a more accessible style for mid-term cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2019." (3/2012) K&L Notes: This is the new name for Lynch-Bages's second wine, made by the young Jean-Charl... Read More »

2010 Fleur de Pedesclaux, Pauillac

This is the second wine of Château Pedescalux, a Pauillac property that offers a lot of bang for your buck. The Fleur de Pedesclaux is softer and more approachable, but in the same modern style, with plenty of fruit but softer tannins. A blend of 50% Cab, 45% Merlot, and 5% Cab Franc. This property is on a roll. (Clyde Beffa, K&L)

2005 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac

94 points James Suckling: "Very classy with plenty of raspberry, currant, and licorice character. This is dense and compacted on the palate. Leave it for at least two or three years from now." (4/2012) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Shows blackberry, coffee, cedar, and raisin on the nose, turning to licorice and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with refined, silky tannins and a long finish. Balanced and juicy. Builds on the palate, with currant, licorice and mineral character, followed by a powerful finish. An amazing second wine." (3/2008) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Forts de Latour (10,000 cases produced) possesses much of the same char ...Read More »

2011 d'Armailhac, Pauillac

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Packed with dark tannins and spicy wood, the wine is rich, dark and very structured. It is powered as much by its tannins as its wood. (RV)" (5/2014) 90 points James Suckling: "This is fresh and clean with citrus and currant character. Medium body, fine tannins and a delicate finish. A little lean but I like it. Clarity of fruit here. Give it three or four years to soften. Try in 2017." (2/2014) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium ruby. Subtle, vinous aromas of blackcurrant, sour red cherry, violet and minerals. Sweet and silky on entry, then tight in the middle, showing terrific purity and verve to the fl ...Read More »
