2009 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Haut couture becomes a wine! This dense purple wine has the tell-tale notes of flowers and pencil shavings, and its broad aromatics are intense and totally captivating. Powerful, rich, and full, but less tannic than the 2005 and more opulent, this is a dazzling Branaire to drink between 2017-2035." (2/2012)95 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous aromas of dark berries and wet earth, with hints of graphite. Full body, with juicy, chewy tannins and a long rich, fruity, and succulent finish. Best ever from here. Try in 2019." (2/2012)95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Very supple wine, with great richness ...Read More »

2012 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. This is a structured, ripe wine that also has a great sense of freshness-vibrant blackberry flavor and lively acidity. The finish retains the same delicious freshness and brightness of this vintage." (4/2013) 94-95 points James Suckling: "A wine that makes you want to drink it already. It’s stylish with berries, currants, cedar and stone aromas and flavors. Full body, with very integrated tannins and a long, long finish. A small percentage of the wine is now aged in cement vats instead of oak barrels. This touches all the senses. A beauty. Made from biodynamic grapes. ...Read More »

2013 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This white is so dense and powerful, with a finish that lasts for minutes. Pear, lemon, grapefruit and loads of minerals. Has more weight than all the red wines made in 2013. Full body. Profound depth. I look forward to tasting this from bottle in a few years." (4/2014) 94-97 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is fabulous. White flowers, spices, mint, grapefruit and lemon peel all meld together in a distinctive wine bursting with personality. The flavors are bright and high-toned, while aging on the lees with a little bit of stirring adds texture. Intense, sali ...Read More »

2008 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

Jancis Robinson: "Deep crimson with a purple tinge. The only blend that might change very slightly - maybe add a little bit more press wine or something. Really rather seductive nose. You could almost drink this now! Very polished and rich and zesty. Pretty clever. Hint of malt that softens it. Then scrunched up on the finish. Clean and neat. Lots of Merlot." (5/2009) K&L Notes: This is Château Latour's third wine, created by the estate in 1973 from the finished wine that is still good, but that doesn't fit the Les Forts de Latour (Latour's second label) profile. It was only produced ... Read More »

2011 Clinet Pomerol

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Clinet has produced a blockbuster wine, even in the lighter, less consistent vintage of 2011. It reveals a dense purple color as well as an abundance of black cherry, black currant and blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice, incense and a touch of camphor. Full-bodied, opulent and fleshy with a substantial finish, this showy, dramatic 2011 should drink well for 15-20 years. Brilliant! (RP)" (4/2014) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Blackberry fruits dominate this ripe wine. It is already delicious, with a round and well-cushioned structure."

2009 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular effort from this estate rivaling their 2005, but more flashy/flamboyant, this dark ruby/purple wine has a strikingly intense nose of licorice, flowers, plums and dark berries. Medium to full-bodied, very approachable and silky, this suave, very sexy wine can be drunk early on as well as aged for 20+ years. (RP)" (2/2012)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Warm and rounded, this spicy wine has wood flavors just showing through the ripe fruit.

2012 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Comprised of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a densely ripe wine, full of black fruits, smoky wood and generous tannins. Given its structure, the wine will obviously age well, even if it is drinkable in the medium term." (4/2013) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Features a bright, lively, leafy edge, with cassis bush and tobacco framing the slightly tangy core of red currant and black cherry, showing a solid note of iron.

It’s full-bodied, with super-integrated tannins that last for minutes. This is muscular yet polished. Extremely well done for the vintage. Better in 2017."

2013 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "Dark red cherry, plum, spicecake and crushed flowers are some of the many notes that meld together in the 2013 Pichon Baron. Silky and resonant in the glass, the 2013 impresses for its texture and soft, enveloping personality. While there is plenty of early appeal, the 2013 has more than enough brightness and acidity to suggest it will age gracefully. The 2013 Pichon Baron brings together a classic sense of structure with a modern and very pure expression of fruit. The blend is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot. Tasted twice."

2013 Montrose, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine is complex, ripe and powerful. The power is complemented by the velvet texture that gives it roundness as well as richness. The acidity cuts right through this impressive wine." (4/2014) 91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "Graphite, camphor, incense, tobacco, smoke and game burst from the glass in the 2013 Montrose. A dark, brooding wine, the 2013 boasts notable depth and tannin considering its mid-weight structure. The 2013 will require at least a few years to come together.

1997 Calon-Ségur, St Estèphe

Wine Spectator: "Rather light for Calon but very aromatic, with cherry, spice aromas and a light, fruity finish." (1/2000) K&L Notes: The first chateau we visited one early April, on one of our previous tasting trips. The wine had a nice nose of vanilla and strawberry, with up-front bright fruit on the palate. A delicate, elegant, wine that was obviously crafted with finesse rather than power as the goal. Soft round tannins will help make this wine a early delicious drinker.

Enjoy this endearing, long, velvety-textured St.-Emilion over the next decade." (6/2010)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Roasted currant and black cherry scents complicated by sexy oak. At once chewy and silky in the mouth, with complex, fresh flavors of plum, redcurrant, vanilla, coffee, smoky oak and woodsy underbrush.

1987 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Typical of most of the Cordier wines in 1987, this is a surprisingly muscular, robust, chunky wine, with plenty of concentrated, weedy, cassis fruit hiding under a veneer of hard tannins. Medium to full bodied, intense, and powerful, this is a wine to consider purchasing by parents who have children born in 1987." (1/1998)

Very sweet and full in body, it packs in the spice, white pepper, cream, coffee, quince and dried apricot notes. –" (4/1995)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A mature, amber hue. A delicate nose of orange peel, honey, marmalade and almonds. The palate is well balanced with good acidity, notes of tangy marmalade, apple, orange zest and a sprinkling of coconut.

2013 La Conseillante, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "A generous, resonant wine, the 2013 La Conseillante is impressive. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and menthol notes flesh out in a rich, inviting wine for the year. A long, persistent finish rounds things out in style. This is about as polished and finessed as things get in 2013. The only thing missing is the structure of a more important vintage. By any measure, the 2013 Conseillante is a tremendous achievement. The blend is 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc.

Full-bodied, highly extracted, broodingly backward, dense, and deep, this impressively endowed offering is built for the long term. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028."

Very classic in Bordeaux terms: not hugely powerful, but delicious." (6/2007)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is an impressively endowed vin de garde that should age effortlessly for 20-30 years.

Full-bodied, opulent and already easy to drink, this large-scaled wine possesses high levels of tannin, but they are relatively well-concealed by the extravagant fruit, glycerin, texture and density of this compelling Troplong Mondot. This impressive wine may shut down after bottling and require 4-5 years of cellaring. It has the potential to last at least 15-20 years. Bravo!"

According to Robert Parker (1/93): "The 1989 is surprisingly full bodied for a de Sales, with a deep, intense, black cherry-scented bouquet intertwined with the scents of vanillin and toast. In the mouth, the wine displays fine ripeness, a heady alcohol content, and a long, tannic, rich finish. Anticipated maturity: Now-2003." (01/93)

1990 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc(1.5L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 is opaque in color, with a huge, peppery, spicy, black cherry nose intermingled with aromas of Provencal herbs. In the mouth, there is excellent richness, a density and thickness to the texture, fine spice, tannin and glycerin in the long finish. (RP)" (2/1993) K&L Notes: Over the years Ch. Lanessan has gained quite a following here at K&L for offering exceptional Bordeaux values. While this is more expensive than many of our previous offerings, it is still quite the bargain from the outstanding 1990 vintage. K&L's co-owner and Bordeaux buyer, Clyde Beffa J... Read More »

2004 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Foursquare, powerful wine that shows great ripeness, solid, firm red berry fruits, a touch of mint, and black, almost impenetrable tannins.

1999 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Branaire is from an under-rated estate. This is a beautifully perfumed effort revealing scents of graphite, lead pencil shavings, blueberries, raspberries, and black currants. The wine is rich, layered, medium-bodied, pure, and elegant. It is a complex St.-Julien with good flavor depth, soft tannin, and unobtrusive acidity. Drink it now and over the next 12-15+ years." (4/2002) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Aromas of smoky oak, chocolate, tobacco leaf, mint and earth. Flavors generally cooler than those of the 2001 and 2000, ranging from red fruit liqueur to less-rip ...Read More »

93 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2006* Loads of blackberry and licorice with hints of meat and smoked oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of very ripe and exotic fruit. Very exotic and wild. Rich finish. Best after 2009." (3/2006)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opulent, accessible 2003 offers a dense plum/ruby-tinged color and a big, sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, smoked herbs, lead pencil, and subtle wood. It is a deep, fleshy, medium to full-bodied offering with low acidity, a plump, opulent texture, and a heady finish. Enjoy this beauty over the next 15+ years."

2005 Monbousquet, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a less than noble terroir in Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens, Gerard Perse has accomplished miraculous things at Monbousquet. Prior to his acquisition of this property in the mid-nineties, this wine tasted like watered-down Beaujolais, but Perse has turned it into one of the more stunning, modern-styled wines of Bordeaux. A blend of approximately two-thirds Merlot, one-third Cabernet Franc and 8-10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 exhibits plenty of toasty oak, roasted herb, meat juice, blackberry, cherry, and spice characteristics along with a touch of inc ...Read More »

1989 Meyney, St-Estèphe

93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark-colored, sporting loads of minty, berry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with plenty of velvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Built for aging.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2005." (5/1999)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 Meyney is one of the finest Meyneys ever produced. The opaque, black/ruby color, a bouquet of minerals and damson plums, the alcoholic, massive flavors and the mouthcoating tannins all combine to create a sensory overload. The 1989 will prove uncommonly long-lived as well as profoundly flavored. Anticipated maturity: 1995-2020. (RP) ...Read More »

1996 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine exhibits a dense purple color, as well as a wonderfully sweet, classic Pauillac nose of black currants and cigar box notes. Powerful for Haut-Batailley (normally a light, elegant, supple Pauillac), the 1996 possesses intense fruit, medium to full body, ripe tannin, and a surprisingly long, layered finish. This appears to be a classic, and may merit an outstanding score. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2015." (2/1998)89 points Wine Spectator: "A well-toned wine, with ripe fruit. Subtle aromas of black currant, tobacco and cherry. Medium- to full-bodied, with polished tannins and ...Read More »

2001 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The La Tour Blanche 2001 has long been the “insiders’ Sauternes” for the vintage. Leave the Yquem ’01 for the millionaires: load up on one of the finest recent vintages from the estate. It has a potent honeyed, frangipane and white flower-scented bouquet with subtle nougat scents in the background lending it an exotic edge. The palate is extremely well balanced with fine acidity effortlessly slicing a swathe through that unctuous, honeyed fruit. There are also understated marmalade notes with a suggestion of crème brûlée furnishing the weighty finish tha ...Read More »

2003 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

94 points James Suckling: "Extremely perfumed, with currants, blackberries, and flowers on the nose. Full bodied, with a solid core of beautiful fruit and super chewy, yet polished tannins. This is a brick house. Pull the cork after 2016." (3/2011)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This fully mature, gorgeous 2003 Branaire Ducru possesses silky tannins, lots of cedary, spice box, floral, black cherry, forest floor and velvety leather-like notes, full body, and an opulent, complex yet elegant style. A beauty of complexity, richness and finesse, it should continue to drink well for another 5-6 years. (RP)" (8/2014)93 points Wine Spectator: "Opul ...Read More »
