2012 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac Top Pick!
2012 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

90 points James Suckling: "This is so delicious and wonderful now with fresh strawberries, peppermint and flowers. Medium body, fine tannins and a crisp finish. Elegant." (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. The palate is medium-bodied with a juicy core of fruit, an almost pastille-like purit ...Read More »

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

98 points Vinous: "The 2015 Pichon Comtesse is a towering wine, as it has always been. Rich, sumptuous and totally hedonistic, the 2015 melds together intense fruit with structure. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2015 is going to need a number of years and will then drink well for several decades. Grilled herbs, smoke, new leather and licorice are some of the many notes that are layered into the dark-fleshed fruit for complexity. As good as the 2015 is today, it also has room to grow. Technical Director Nicolas Glumineau has done a tremendous job with the 2015s at Pichon C ...Read More »

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. Silky, polished tannins nicely balance the wine's overt personal ...Read More »

2014 Les Tourelles de Longueville, Pauillac Top Pick!
2014 Les Tourelles de Longueville, Pauillac

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Named after the turrets that surmount the château of Pichon Longueville, this wine has its own dedicated portion of the vineyard. It is open, generous and full bodied. Ripe berry fruits dominate while still leaving room for the fresh acidity typical of the 2014 vintage. (RV)" (4/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "The currant and berry character with hints of chocolate is impressive on the nose. Full body, tangy acidity and soft and velvety tannins. It’s rich and satisfying. Second wine of Pichon Baron. Better in 2021." (2/2017) Vinous: "The 2014 Les Tourelles de Longueville is sof ...Read More »

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. (NM)" (3/2017)

2014 Fleur de Pedesclaux, Pauillac (Previously $30)

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.

Goes on for minutes. A superb wine with great fruit. Real Bordeaux. Try in 2025." (2/2018) 97 points Vinous: "Proprietor Alfred Tesseron and winemaker Jean-Michel Comme produced an absolutely stellar Pontet-Canet in 2015. Sumptuous, racy and totally inviting, the 2015 is all class. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, spice and exotic floral notes build as the 2015 shows off its alluring personality.

2000 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Château Pichon Baron is just getting better and better and better. Perhaps the magnum format played its part, but nevertheless...just...wow. This is a millennial Left Bank with the keys to the top drawer. It has an incredibly precise, mineral-driven bouquet with intense black fruit infused with cedar and graphite scents. It just reeks of Pauillac in an almost uncompromising, yet compelling manner. The palate is structured, stylish and effortless, extraordinarily pure and unerringly youthful. This is a Pichon Baron saying, 'You ain't seen nothing ...Read More »

2012 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

94 points James Suckling: "A pretty core of ripe-berry, currant and mineral character to this red with a full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish to add. Creamy texture. Better in 2017." (2/2015) 94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Pichon-Longueville Baron is wonderfully aromatic and textured in the glass. Scents of smoke, pipe tobacco and cedar meld into a core of intense dark fruit. Pliant and supple, but with considerable underlying structure, the 2012 is likely to drink well for the next two to three decades, perhaps longer, but it is also going to need at least a few years in bottle for the tannins to ...Read More »

2015 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Reminding me of the 1990, the 2015 Château Pichon Baron is a sensational bottle of wine made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot that spent 18 months in 80% new French oak. Boasting a deep purple color as well as awesome notes of black raspberries, toasted spices, cassis, lead pencil shavings, tobacco leaf and building minerality, this full-bodied, concentrated 2015 has sweet tannin, a great texture, and a big, big finish. Pauillac all the way, with both opulence and finesse, forget bottles of 4-5 years and enjoy anytime over the following two to ...Read More »

2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "This is all about the finish with a sweet-tobacco, berry and light milk-chocolate character. Full body, very fine tannins and a juicy finish. Love the intensity and finesse at the end. Lots of energy. Could better the exquisite 2014." (4/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot that matured in 75% new oak. It has 13.3% alcohol this year. It has an extraordinarily pure bouquet with blackberry, briary, touches of pencil shaving and cedar aromas--quintessential Grand-Puy-Lacoste, basically. The palate is medium-bodi ...Read More »

Juicy and muscular wine. Needs three or four years to open. Beautiful." (2/2017) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrant and perfumed, this wine is the epitome of great Cabernet Sauvignon. It is fruity, juicy yet with serious concentrated tannins. There is spice from the wood aging along with a dash of pepper, all the while just bringing out the beautiful black-currant flavors. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (2/2017) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Lynch-Bages is j ...Read More »

2000 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac

92 points Wine Spectator: "Best wine from this estate in decades. Attractive chocolate, berry and currant aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with medium-fine tannins and a pretty berry, chocolate aftertaste. Seriously good value. Best after 2009. (JS)" (1/2003) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest Haut-Batailleys ever made (it certainly rivals the 1996), this deep ruby/purple-colored wine is a beauty. Notes of raspberries, liquified minerals, cassis, and tobacco jump from the glass of this attractive, velvety-textured wine. Some tannin is there, but it is abundantly fruity, low ...Read More »

2016 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

98-99 points James Suckling: "Vivid and full of energy with blackberry, currant and salt. Full body, intense and long. Harmony. Purpose. Classicism. The mineral and currant character is all year. 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. There aren't too many other 2016s where that is the case, but it is undoubtedly true here. The 2016 is a ...Read More »

2010 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac Top Pick!
2010 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

98 points Vinous: "An eternal wine, the 2010 Pichon Lalande is a total showstopper. The first impression is one of explosive power, but time in the glass brings out the wine’s more delicate, floral side. Violet, graphite, crème de cassis, licorice and menthol overtones recall the 1996, but the tannins here are much softer, sweeter and more polished. In two recent tastings, the 2010 has been positively stellar. The alternation of hot days and cool nights led to a late harvest. The Cabernet Sauvignon harvest did not start until October 7; by that date in 2009 all the fruit w ...Read More »

The form to this is stupendous. Such precision and clarity. The new 1986 but better." (4/2017) 98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Mouton-Rothschild is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the latter two co-fermented, picked from 26 September and finished on 14 October.

I love the spice and blueberry character on the finish. Vibrant. A sexy style of Mouton. *Top 100 of 2017*" (2/2017) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Unquestionably one of the great wines in the vintage, the 2014 Mouton-Rothschild offers more flamboyance, depth, and texture than just about every other release out there. Crème de cassis, violets, lead pencil, and ample creamy oak notes all emerge from this incredibly sexy, concentrated 2014 th ...Read More »

2015 Reserve de la Comtesse de Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "This is an impressive second wine. It shows a lot of vibrant red berries, blackberries and darker plum fruits. The palate is impressive for the vibrant and lively acidity cast amid sturdy but supple tannins. Second wine from Pichon-Lalande. Try from 2021." (2/2018) 92 points Vinous: "The 2015 Réserve de la Comtesse is a superb second wine. Time in barrel and egg white fining have softened some of the tannins the 2015 showed as a barrel sample, but the fruit intensity, pedigree and class of the estate are all in the glass.

Plenty of coffee and cedar flavors at the end. A pretty Duhart. Needs four or five years bottle age."

2000 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2000 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (95RP, 92ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Château Grand Puy Lacoste is an exceptional wine from Xavier Borie. It has a brilliant nose of blackberry, crushed stone, graphite and cedar. Putting it to one side for ten to 15 minutes reveals subtle mint-like aromas that whisk you straight to Pauillac. The palate is smooth and silky, cloaking the tannic frame of this GPL so that you barely notice it. But that will stand it in good stead for the long-term, the cornerstone of all great wines from this estate. Then there is that hint of spice on the aftertaste—the show ain't over yet. Served alongside a magnum of Pichon Baron 2000, I would say that at the moment, it does not quite possess the same level of precision. However, it remains a magnificent Pauillac to cherish long-term.

Cassis, black cherries, tobacco leaf, cedar and classic Pauillac lead-pencil characteristics all emerge from this ripe, sexy, surprisingly rounded effort that has a stacked mid-palate and sweet, polished tannin. It’s impressive today but is going to cruise for another two to three decades." (12/2017) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft.

From one of the greatest vintages for the region ever, this deep, saturated purple-colored effort offers an incredible bouquet of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, damp earth, and graphite.

The nose is fragrant and generous with more red fruit than black, cedar and tobacco, fine definition, perhaps a little rustic in keeping with the winemaking at the time, but certainly giving lots of pleasure. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin -- a cohesive Pauillac with plenty of depth and fine balance. The acidity lends this plenty of freshness and it does not shortchange you with plenty of tarry, cedary fruit. You come away with the impression that this Pichon Baron is going to continue to improve although I would not burn anyone at the stake for opening it now. If you cannot afford the First Growth then this (and Pichon Lalande) would be where I would come. (NM)" (10/2016)

According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense of heaviness or fatigue. This exquisite Lynch Bages should drink well for 30+ years. (RP)" (02/2012)

2013 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is rich, with generous black plum and berry fruits. It has a structure that is full, ripe and that will sustain the fruitiness of the wine over many years. The sensation is of velvet, with some force behind it. This remarkable wine will develop well over the medium term and then age for many years. Drink from 2022. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (3/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "You really want to drink this the minute you taste it with chocolate, walnut and cedar aromas and flavors. Full to medium body, very refined and flavorful. Seamless structure. Stone, currant leaf and t ...Read More »

2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (1.5L)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times since release, the 2009 Pontet Canet is one of those magical efforts that wine lovers encounter far too infrequently. From one of the greatest vintages for the region ever, this deep, saturated purple-colored effort offers an incredible bouquet of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, damp earth, and graphite. This gives way to a full-bodied, powerful Pauillac that carries a massive amount of sweet fruit yet stays light and beautifully balanced on the palate. With ripe, sweet tannin, an ...Read More »

1988 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

94 points Wine Spectator: "Dark brick-red color, with a garnet edge. Aromas of dark chocolate, meat and currant. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit and round tannins. Goes on and on. Very balanced, with a beautiful mouthfeel. Long life ahead. This has always been a serious wine. (JS, Web-2009)" 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at The Ledbury Bordeaux-themed lunch. Consistent notes as previous occasions: as straight down the line classic Pauillac with an unashamed graphite-scented nose, a rather tannic but very well balanced palate with a surfeit of freshness, crisp and “energetic” on the finish, ev ...Read More »

2005 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac
Bid on this bottle of 2005 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (97JD, 97RP, 96WS, 95DC, 95VN, 94WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London, the 2005 Château Pontet-Canet has long been one of the stars of the vintage and this might well be the best of over a dozen showings of this wine. However, do not expect ostentation on the nose. This is 2005 and like many wines of this vintage, even with considerable decanting, it remained broody and introspective on the nose, as if it is checking you out and seeing if you are worthy. Once you have been accepted, then it swings the doors open to reveal gorgeous scents of blackberry, briary and cassis fruit, perhaps a little more sous-bois than I have noticed compared to previous bottles. The palate is medium-bodied, but dense and structured—certainly a more masculine Pontet-Canet built for long-term ageing. Yet it retains marvelous freshness and vitality all the way through to the pencil-lead, quite saline finish. I suspe

2015 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "One of the finest Pauillacs of 2015, Lynch-Bages is rich, racy and voluptuous. A rush of dark red and purplish stone fruit, mint, new leather, spice and blood orange give the 2015 a very decidedly exotic character that is impossible to miss. Raspberry jam, mocha, new leather and expressive floral notes appear with time in the glass, rounding things out nicely. Even though the 2015 is quite forward and open at this stage, the wine has plenty of stuffing as well as the underlying structure to support many years of exceptional drinking. This is a stellar sh ...Read More »

2015 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "Swathed in spicy and toasty oak aromas, this has a wealth of superbly expressed red and dark berries, flowers and mint. The palate delivers a very assertive and energetic array of dark berries and spiced plums with a fresh, focused, vibrant finish. Superb wine. Try from 2023." (2/2018) 95 points Vinous: "The 2015 Grand Puy Lacoste is just as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel. Sensual, polished and refined, the 2015 is all class. Silky tannins, perfumed aromatics and beautifully delineated fruit are some of the signatures. The natural richness of the year comes thr ...Read More »

1997 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Garnet-tinged dark red. Aromatic nose displays a floral, delicately spicy quality to its red fruit, shoe polish, cedar and tobacco aromas. More red fruits in the mouth, with mineral and loamy nuances on the linear, moderately persistent finish. Better than a number of more evolved bottles of this vintage that I've had over the years." (1/2012) Wine Spectator: "Pretty plum and raspberry aromas in this young Lynch. Medium- to light-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish." (1/2000)

2006 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
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 »

2000 Latour, Pauillac

100 points James Suckling: "Latour has made truly great wines in the past two decades—and this is one of the best. It has fabulous aromas of black truffles, currants, raspberry and dried flowers. Mind-blowing on the palate, it’s an emotional and soulful red." (4/2014) 99 points Wine Spectator: "The fruit here is still very much in the primary phase, with a decidedly racy feel to the raspberry coulis, cassis and blackberry reduction notes that are streaked with violet, iron and graphite flavors. The superlong finish alternates between a tug of sweet earth and a velvety feel, as the fruit and grip are still meld ...Read More »

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 Vinous: "Open-knit yet deep and powerful, the 2005 Les Forts de Latour is striking today. The pedigree of the vintage comes through in spades. Expressive, perfumed aromatics meld into a core of supple, open-knit fruit in a mid-weight, impeccably balanced Forts de Latour. Hints of red fruit, iron, smoke and tobacco add lovely shades of nuance. Latour's President Frédéric Engerer adds that that ...Read More »

2010 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac

100 points James Suckling: "This is pure Cabernet Sauvignon magic with incredible aromas of currants, blackberries and light spices. Tiny hints of hazelnut. Wet earth. Full body, with super velvety tannins. The purity of fruit is breathtaking. It goes on for minutes. This is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot." (2/2013) 100 points Vinous: "A wine of noble bearing and exceptional beauty, the 2010 Mouton Rothschild is a flat-out stunner. The aromatics alone are beguiling. On the palate, the wine is every bit as thrilling, with myriad layers of flavor that continue to open up in the glass. Graphite, gravel, ...Read More »
