2017 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This is an excellent Lynch that starts off slowly and then drives at the end with dark fruit and hints of hazelnuts. Strong and focused tannins. A beautiful young wine." (4/2018) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This dense wine is setting out to be fine and rich. It has power and density along with ripe blackberry flavors. Its concentration and dark tannins suggest a long life ahead. (RV)" (4/2018) 95 points Decanter: "They've had their foot on the extraction pedal here, but the extremely dark fruit has great finesse. It is broad-shouldered and savoury-edged, and each time I tasted this wine it seemed a little ...Read More »

2017 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Certainly a fine wine, this has ripe tannins that are balanced by the fine, black fruits. With its smoky and black currant character, it has the structure for aging, as well as the attractive fruitiness of the vintage. (RV)" (4/2018) 95-96 points James Suckling: "This is a really fascinating young Pichon Lalande with a dense center palate of currants, crushed stones, salt and seashells. Really long and intense. Wonderful energy. Showing character of some of the top years of the 1980s." (4/2018) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This barrel sample is 100% new oak, whereas the final blend will be only 60% new oak. A blend ...Read More »

(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.

2017 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The saturated purple-colored 2017 Pichon-Longueville Baron will compete with the best of the best in 2017. Possessing full-bodied notes of ripe blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with background graphite and oak, it hits the palate with beautiful purity of fruit, building tannin, and a great, great finish. Its oak is brilliantly integrated, it has a stacked mid-palate, and again, just incredible purity of fruit. It has the fruit/texture to drink nicely in its youth yet deserves 4-6 years and will keep for two decades or more. The 2017 is 79% Cabernet ...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 »

2009 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
Bid on this bottle of 2009 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (98RP, 97JS, 96WE, 96WS, 93ST, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel, this appears to be the finest Lynch Bages since the 2000, 1990 and 1989. 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)

1996 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very good example of this...estate, the 1996's saturated dark ruby/plum color is accompanied by textbook aromas of black currants, smoky new oak, minerals, and tobacco. Well-made, with moderate tannin, excellent purity, and a medium-bodied, ripe, melted asphalt-flavored finish, this [is a] seductive Lynch-Moussas...(RP)" (4/1999) K&L Notes: In February 1998, Robert Parker wrote: "Lynch-Moussas is clearly on the comeback trail, as evidenced by the 1995 and 1996 efforts, which are two of the finest wines I have tasted from this Pauillac estate."

Long and persistent." (4/2018) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm structure supports the luscious fruit flavors—this is a richly generous wine. Finely integrated tannins are layered with ripe black currant notes. As often with this biodynamic estate, the purity of the fruit is outstanding and concentrated. It will age well over many years, but is enjoyable young. (RV)" (4/2018) 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Described as a mix of his 2015 and 2016 by ...Read More »

2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

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 »

2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

98 points James Suckling: "A stunning wine for this vintage although it’s still a bit shy on the nose (more spice than fruit showing than now). There’s wet earth, too, but on the palate it’s bursting with ripe yet subtle flavors. Very long and complex finish that goes on and on." (2/2017) 96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A final blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2014 Pontet-Canet is brilliant stuff, and I was able to taste this wine from barrel as well as multiple times from bottle, both at the estate and from a bottle purchased in the United States.

2000 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

97 points 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.

I can't remember tasting a better Lynch-Moussas. Best after 2009. (JS)" (3/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Probably the best effort I have tasted from Lynch-Moussas ... in my career!

2015 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Lynch Moussas is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot cropped at 44 hl/ha between 17 September and 1 October. It has a very controlled bouquet at first with tightly wound raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, the oak nicely integrated and some lovely undergrowth aromas surfacing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, the acidity well judged, leading to a spice-tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. It is a very fine follow-up to the 2014 last year, with a freshness and class that I did not find conveyed ...Read More »

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.

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.

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.

It’s an impressive wine that continues the progress of this estate, owned by Lafite-Rothschild. Drink from 2024. (RV)" (4/2017) 90 points Vinous: "The 2014 Duhart-Milon ...Read More »

2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac 6-pack in OWC

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 »

2017 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) New!
2017 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon with 3.5% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Lafite Rothschild is a little shy on the nose to begin, opening out to scents of crushed blackcurrants, black cherries and warm black plums with touches of yeast extract, charcuterie, cigar box and fertile loam plus a hint of iron ore. POW—the paradoxically ethereal, medium-bodied palate hits you with vibrant, exhilarating black fruit and previously latent floral layers, supported with fantastic freshness and super fine-grained, pixelated tannin ...Read More »

1996 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac Top Pick!
1996 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

92 points Wine Spectator: "This is much more open than the 1995. Offers aromas and flavors of currant, mint and spices. Full-bodied, soft and velvety, with a fruit finish. Starting to drink well now. (JS, Web Only-2007)" 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Lynch Bages has a delightful fresh, minty bouquet that does not quite deliver the complexity of recent vintages, nicely perfumed with hints of wilted rose petal developing with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, fresh from the start with blackcurrant pastilles, a touch of tobacco with a tightly coiled, minerally, slightly sharp f ...Read More »

2004 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is only one question about what is otherwise a magnificent wine—whether the current dominant wood flavors will soften and blend enough. If they do, then the powerful fruit, spice and freshness will all come together in a stellar wine." (6/2007) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Pichon Lalande is a strong effort for the vintage...it exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as scents of cocoa, espresso roast, black cherries, and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, opulent, and fleshy, this classic wine cuts a stylistic persona somewhere between the 1995 and 1996. It can be drunk n ...Read More »

2010-2012 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac Vertical
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010-2012 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac Vertical, including 1-bottle of 2010 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (98VN, 96WE, 95RP, 95WS, 94CG, 94JS), 1-bottle of 2011 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (95WE, 93JS, 91WS), and 1-bottle of 2012 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac ((94-96WE), 92JS, 92VN, 92WS, 90RP). Of the 2010 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac,Vinous writes: "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 was in. Readers who can still find the 2010 should not hesitate, as it is a mode 

This lot contains the following items:
2010 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (qty: 1)
2011 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (qty: 1)

2015 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "So much floral and dark-fruit character with almonds and walnut shell. Full body and ultra-fine tannins. Powerful. Classic style with a harmony and energy. 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. Even with all of its racines ...Read More »

1995 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

93 points James Suckling: "This is surprisingly delicate and fine now with currant and spice character and hints nuts. It is full body with refined texture and a beautiful finish. No reason to wait on this red. It's ready to drink." (6/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stylish, elegant, more restrained style of Pichon Baron, with less obvious new oak than usual, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine offers a pure black currant-scented nose with subtle aromas of coffee and smoky toasty oak. In the mouth, the wine displays less weight and muscle than the 1996, but it offers suave, elegant, rich fruit presented in ...Read More »

2005 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Pichon-Longueville Baron is another concentrated, full-bodied 2005 that’s starting to drink well. 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. Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, ...Read More »
