2009 Larteau, Bordeaux Supérieur (Previously $15) Top Pick!
2009 Larteau, Bordeaux Supérieur (Previously $15)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fashioned from 100% Merlot, this mainstream, deliciously fruity, succulent, soft, dark ruby/purple-tinged, juicy 2009 is everything a bargain hunter is seeking." (4/2010) K&L Notes: Chateau Larteau is a carefully modernized 18th Century property with 12 hectares planted in the gravelly soils beside the Dordogne. Vinification of this 100% Merlot takes place in temperature-controlled concrete vats before the wine is aged for 18 months in 30% new Allier oak barrels. The wine is fruity and generous and enjoyable in its youth, but with an aging potential of 5-10 years in ... Read More »

2011 Malmaison, Moulis (Previously $20)

Wine Spectator: "A soft and charming style, with a perfumy edge around the lightly steeped plum and cherry fruit. Lingering sandalwood and tea notes line the finish, which shows good persistence. Drink now through 2015. (Web-2014)"

2005 Coutet, Sauternes (375ml) (Elsewhere $35) Top Pick!
2005 Coutet, Sauternes (375ml) (Elsewhere $35)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Surprisingly dry, this has richness rather than sweetness, and intense, powerful botrytis. The honey is intensely perfumed, along with baked apples and spice. Certainly a long-aging wine." (6/2008)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "92+ points. (no tasting note given)" (4/2008)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright golden yellow. Cool, pungent nose offers hints of orange, marzipan, sexy brown spices, parsley, grass and eucalpytus. Sweet, thick and powerful but with its fat fruit flavors cut by strong acidity. At once densely packed and vibrant, finishing with superb lingering sweetness and a mineral element. This needs pat ...Read More »

2012 Cartier, St-Emilion (Previously $20)

What a delicious wine. Soft and supple with tons of spicy fruit on the nose and palate. Semi-new wave, but fine structure and balance. Excellent value. Another find on our 2012 Bordeaux buy trip. Organically cultivated. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Co-Owner and Bordeaux Buyer)

2005 Valandraud, St-Emilion (Previously $400) Top Pick!
2005 Valandraud, St-Emilion (Previously $400)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of the most riveting examples of Valandraud Jean-Luc Thunevin has made over the last fifteen years. Thunevin and his partner, Murielle Andraud (who has much of the responsibility for their brilliant Margaux, Marojallia), exhibit impeccable attention to detail, resulting in an inky/blue/purple-colored 2005 Valandraud boasting a sweet nose of melted chocolate, licorice, graphite, espresso roast, and copious quantities of black cherries and blackberries. Pure, layered, and full-bodied, with gorgeous integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and w ...Read More »

2011 Magdelaine, St-Emilion (Previously $65)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A dark, dry wine that shows its strong, firm tannins. The wine is well structured, with flavors of mint, new wood and a layer of blackberry fruit." (4/2012)92 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromatic nose of flowers, blackberry and currants. Full body with fine tannins and a subtle finish. The ripe fruit and fine tannins are subdued right now but show potential for the vintage. This is the last vintage of this wine, as the vineyards have been amalgamated into Bélair-Monange. Better in 2017." (2/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "Shows a light menthol note before giving way to a smoky, tobacco-infused core of p ...Read More »

2007 Rouget, Pomerol Top Pick!
2007 Rouget, Pomerol

Decanter: "Proper Pomerol richness and attack with black fruit. Fresh and forceful ripe fruit and perfume. Acidity adds balance; very fresh as well." (11/2010) Jancis Robinson: "Sweet and mellifluous and lively with some freshness. Well done! Good balance. Long." (4/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This property appears to be making better and better wines with each vintage. The soft, silky, tasty 2007 boasts copious black cherry and ripe strawberry fruit interwoven with notions of sandy soil. Enjoy this medium-bodied, plush Pomerol over the next 7-10 years." (4/2010) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright ruby-red. Musky, rather wild aroma ...Read More »

2011 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (Previously $17)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium dark ruby. Aromatic nose offers fresh blackcurrant and lead pencil scents. Pure but austere on the palate, with black fruit and cedar flavors leading to a persistent finish featuring slightly gritty tannins." (5/2012) K&L Notes: From the winery: "Made up of 45 hectares (111 acres) of vines that form part of a larger 80 hectares (198 acres) estate on one single plot, the Lanessan vineyard is located in the commune of Cussac-Fort-Médoc, close to Saint-Julien, in the Haut-Médoc appellation area and runs east to west along a fine ridge of deep Garonne gravel.

2011 Domaine du Bouscat "La Gargone" Bordeaux Supérieur (Previously $22)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Cuvee La Gargone (14% alcohol) exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, abundant notes of sweet blueberries and black raspberries and significant density and richness. A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for 3-5 years." (4/2014) James Suckling: "This shows lots of excellent fruit, with spices, chikies and chocolate. Full and dense. Fruity finish. Drink in 2016." (2/2014)

1986 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac Top Pick!
1986 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1986 possesses outstanding richness, a deep color, medium body, a graceful, harmonious texture, and superb length. The penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit is a hallmark of this wine. Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic, as well as medium to full-bodied, with awesome extraction of fruit, this Lafite has immense potential. (Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition)" (1/1998)94 points Wine Spectator: "A firm, young wine. Dark ruby color. Intense aromas of blackberry and mint. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Still needs time. (06/01)" (6/2012)

2011 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Previously $150)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a solid, concentrated wine from a reliable chateau. It has weight and power, with rich black fruits balanced with fresh acidity. Touches of bitter extraction and wood aging are likely to integrate as the wine ages. It should develop into an impressive and powerful wine. Drink from 2018." (5/2014)93 points James Suckling: "A 2011 with blackberry, dark-chocolate and smoked-meat character. Full body, silky tannins and a long, intense finish. All about balance and polish. Very fine. Needs three to four years to soften. Try in 2017." (2/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "Warm savory and tob ...Read More »

1970 Rieussec, Sauternes (low neck) (Previously $160)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A little heavier to taste and a bit less elegant than the 1971, the 1970 is a corpulent, rich, sweet mouthful of viscous, chewy Sauternes. The moderately amber/gold color is a sign of approaching maturity, but this wine has the acidity and overall balance to drink nicely for at least another decade. (1998)" K&L Notes: *** From Michael Broadbent: "Surprisingly pale, sweet, spearmint nose, medium sweetness and body, nice rich flavour, good acidity." Neil Martin: "A medium-bodied palate, good acidity, a little ephemeral and very floral. Quite sharp but good delineation.... Read More »

2002 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (Previously $200)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A classic second wine that shows outstanding potential, the dark ruby/purple-colored 2002 has notes of cedar wood, black currants, earth, and truffles in a medium to full-bodied, supple-textured, beautifully concentrated style that can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years. (RP)" (4/2005)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red-ruby. Cool aromas of raspberry, currant, black olive and spicy oak. Sweet, sexy flavors of redcurrant, tobacco, nuts and dried herbs. A bit more compact today than the 2004, but finishes with suave tannins and very good grip. Showing a bit of an acid edge ...Read More »

1996 Suduiraut, Sauternes

89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Slight SO2 and a whiff of licorice on the nose. Fat, oaky and moderately thick; fairly sweet but doesn't offer the shape or depth of flavor of the '97. The finish, though, is ripe, honeyed and long." (8/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Bright gold. Pretty simple on the nose. Very big and barley sugar on the palate. You couldn’t fail to like this even if it not one of the subtlest. Chewy end. (17/20 points JR)" (6/2011) K&L Notes: Pineapple aromas and up-front fruit on the palate. Very honeyed and rich. A powerhouse.

1990 Lagrange, St-Julien

95 points Wine Spectator: "Blockbuster. Dark ruby color. Intense aromas of blackberries, currants, cherries and minerals. Full-bodied, very tannic yet velvety in texture. Black licorice and berry character lasts for minutes. Long, chewy finish. A monster. Best after 2010." (8/2000)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of this estate’s superstars (only rivaled by the 1986 and 1996), the 1990 Lagrange exhibits sweet toasty oak notes intermixed with jammy blackberries, cassis, licorice, smoke, and underbrush. Full-bodied with lovely melted tannins, an opulent, fleshy mouthfeel, and loads of purity as well as depth, it ...Read More »

1991 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Previously $220)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cos d'Estournel's 1991 (about 50% of the harvest was declassified) is one of the wines to buy given its relatively low price and fine quality. It displays a dark ruby color, and a big, rich nose of cassis fruit married intelligently with spicy new oak. Offering surprising fatness and fleshiness, fine length, and a sweet, creamy texture, it should drink well for at least a decade." (2/1994) Wine Spectator: "One of the best wines of the vintage. Well focused, with lots of chunky fruit. The vanilla, tobacco and chocolate flavors go on and on." (3/1994)

2010 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Administrator Christian Seeley thinks the 2010 is the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron he has ever made, equaling some of the estate’s colossal wines from vintages such as 1989 and 1990. It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January. Opaque purple, with loads of charcoal, licorice, incense and some exotic Asian spices along with abundant cassis liqueur, blackberry and hints of roasted coffee and spring flowers, it is full-bodied and opulent, with relatively high tannins, but they have sweetened up considerably and seem less aggr ...Read More »

1982 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

96 points James Suckling: "I have tasted this wine at least four or five times in the last two months and it is clearly classic. Some can be a little austere and thin though. This bottle was gorgeous with such pure and bright fruit. It showed aromas of dried cherries and mushrooms that turn to sliced ripe plums. It’s full with round and ripe tannins, and a long, long finish." (3/2012)96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Amber-tinged red; based on other bottles I have tried, the color of this particular bottle seems slightly more evolved than usual. Penetrating aromas of strawberry jam, raspberry, red cherry, orange p ...Read More »

2008 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Previously $170)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This big, smoky wine has great richness and a big, concentrated structure. The feel is dark, solid, based on spice, new wood and ripe black plums touched with red berries, the tannins sheltering beneath." (4/2011)93 points James Suckling: "A delicate and pretty Cos. Aromas of blackberries, cherries and spices follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a chocolate, berry and light coffee character. Long and caressing. Give it a a few years of bottle age before opening." (12/2010)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Closed but promising, this is a classic Cos revealing lots of tannin along with damp earth, blac ...Read More »

2010 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I certainly underrated the 2010 Pape Clement from barrel, rating it only 93-95+. (Thank God I put a 'plus' there!) Having tasted it four times in Bordeaux, and rating it perfect three times and 99 the fourth time, this final blend of 51% Merlot, 47.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1.5% Petit Verdot is perfection in a bottle. Tipping the scales at 14.5% natural alcohol, there are 8,000 cases of it. Its sublime elegance, the power, the medium to full-bodied texture, the silky tannins, the subtle notes of smoke, lead pencil shavings, black currants, charcoal, cam ...Read More »

2004 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Aromas of blueberry, plum, leather, tobacco and mocha. Sweet, plummy and pliant, with a creamy, fine-grained texture for the vintage. Very plush wine, richer than the 2006 and at least as long. Finishes with big but ripe tannins." (6/2007)91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Latour’s second wine is, as so often, on a level with many classed growths. In 2004, it is also a very faithful reflection of the vintage: fresh, lively and vital, with acidity and vibrant blackberry fruits very much up front. If not big, it is deliciously fresh and will develop well over five years." (6/2007)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "De ...Read More »

2010 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bizarre as it may sound, the 2010 Les Forts de Latour is also the finest I have ever tasted from this selection, which comes from specific vineyards, not really so much a second wine as just another wine from estate holdings. A blend of 72.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27.5% Merlot that represents 40% of the production, this astonishing wine hit 14.3% natural alcohol. Extremely ripe and rich, it reminds me of the 1982 on steroids (and that wine is still drinking great 30 years after the vintage). Sensational notes of graphite, crushed rocks, black fruits, ca ...Read More »

1981 Magdelaine, St-Emilion (Previously $120)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The color is very sound, the bouquet suggests vanillin, woodsy aromas, but on the palate, the wine is unyielding and ungenerous. Perhaps time will unleash the fruit." (1/1998) K&L Notes: Neil Martin's Wine Journal: "Deep garnet core with dark brick rim. A stupendous nose: briary, earth with a hint of mint chocolates. Very fresh and defined. The palate does not quite match the nose but is remarkably fresh with a certain 'cool' character deriving from the fresh, almost citrus acidity and great definition. Quite tannic, the texture is more akin to a Left Bank wine. Mode... Read More »

Rather syrupy aromas of coffee, mocha and alcohol. Dense and thick but somewhat weedy; fairly penetrating and concentrated, but beginning to lose its fruit...." (7/2002)

Extremely polished and beautiful, with a seamless texture. Best after 2014. 10,000 cases made." (3/2008)96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A wine with a beautiful mouthfeel and shape. This is rich, gleaming in the ripe black fruits, the touch of spice and mint, as well as the sweet blackberry flavors. The acidity is balanced, showing off the fruit. There is weight and density as well." (6/2008)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most beautiful Rauzan-Seglas made i ...Read More »
