2014 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Powerful tannins and ripe fruit notes set this wine up for a rich future. It has a dark, brooding quality, with smooth wood flavors and a creamy black-cherry aftertaste." (3/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "Beautiful concentration and depth to this red with blueberry, blackberry and licorice character. Full and structured with strength and finesse." (4/2015) 89-92 points Wine Spectator: "Focused, with a velvety beam of crushed plum and warm cherry notes flowing through the anise- and plum cake-accented finish. A little reliant on toast in the end, but the balance is there." (4/2015)

2014 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "Best since 2005? It has a unique style of botrytis intensity yet fresh, agile and bright. It’s full-bodied, delicate and refined. The palate is full of figs, spices, dried mushrooms and earth. It lasts for minutes. It makes you want to drink it now!" (3/2015) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine shows great concentration, with rich honey and botrytis tones, leading to ripe apricot and peach. It's opulent and powerful character completely takes hold of the palate, yet by the end, lively acidity kicks in."

2012 Cantenac Brown, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. A solid effort, this is a wine with great fruit and firm structure to support it. Ripe and full in the mouth, it’s a firm and complex wine with a delicious juicy aftertaste." (4/2013) 90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cantenac Brown, one of the most impressive Margaux I tasted, is the complete package -- from the initial attack to the layered, rich finish. Dense ruby/purple-hued with notes of licorice, mulberries, black currants, asphalt and spring flowers, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated, rich effort does not reveal an excess of rusticity or astringency.

2014 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a bold, spicy profile, with nectarine, ginger, hazelnut and pineapple notes. Shows lots of energy, brimming with spice and focused acidity through the finish. A great showing." (4/2015) 95-96 points James Suckling: "A solid wine with dried fruits, spices, dried mushrooms and medium sweetness. Full-bodied, sweet and intense." (4/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. While the texture is rich, the flavors are muted at this stage. It does have an opulent character that will develop to give ripe yellow fruit tones. Rich in nature, a vein of acidity runs under all this concentration. It will need time ...Read More »

1997 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational Yquem, 1997 may be this estate's finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1997's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with good underlying acidity as well as loads of sweetness and glycerin, it looks to be a great vintage for this renowned Sauternes estate. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2055. (RP)" (4/2003)96 points Wine Spectator: "A pure style, with intense acacia, white peach, apricot, nectarine and ...Read More »

2014 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This has a phenomenal finish. It’s dense yet agile with dried tropical fruits and spices. Honey, too. Yet so intense and powerful. It really lasts for minutes. Medium sweet yet so fruity and energetic. This shows how you can have ripeness with fruit and then lots of botrytis. Exciting wine." (3/2015) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Piled with richness and weight, this wine is ripe with honey flavors. The opulence is balanced by a line of acidity and brings the wine to a fine conclusion showing beautiful freshness and intensity."

1996 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "This leans toward the tropical side, with mango and guava notes out front, while maple, date, blood orange and citrus oil flavors fill in behind. The finish kicks into another gear, taking off with honeysuckle, orange blossom and frangipane accents. Has almost unbridled power today, while maintaining serious cut. A very impressive showing in a rather overlooked vintage.—Non-blind Yquem vertical (July 2014). Drink now through 2035." (2/2014)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Compared with the flamboyant aromatics of the 1997, Yquem's 1996 plays it closer to the vest, although there is a lot ...Read More »

2013 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a wonderfully rich and ripe wine. It has finely integrated tannins as well as blackberry fruit. The texture is velvet smooth, opulent, ripe and concentrated, packed with beautiful fruit flavors. It’s a wine that will age superbly." (4/2014) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Calon Segur is unquestionably one of the stars of the vintage. The harvest ran from early October for the Merlot grape and to the second full week of October for the Cabernet Sauvignon. I don’t recall (although I’d have to go through all my notes for the last 3-4 years) a Calon Segur with ...Read More »

Juicy and long. Sweet fruit in the center palate." (4/2013)93 points Wine Spectator: "This is distinctive, with a roasted alder streak running through an enticing core of crushed plum, blackberry and black currant confiture flavors. Long and velvety on the finish, with bay, tobacco and black tea accents checking in. This is suave, with fruit and terroirin spades, particularly for the vintage.

2014 Doisy-Daëne, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

A lively acidity brings a crisp counterbalance to this weight, offering a bright citrus verve." (3/2015) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Bright peach, nectarine and tangerine notes form the core, with a lacing of hazelnut.

Initially, it seems to be all sweetness, then that essential acidity creeps in with the wonderful freshness of squeezed lemon." (3/2015) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Features lots of inviting shortbread, lemon custard, creamed white peach and yellow apple notes bouncing along, with a lingering white ginger accent on the finish.—" (4/2015) 90-91 points James Suckling: "A rich and round wine with medium sweetness yet full-bodied, spicy and fruity.

2013 Suduiraut, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

One of the bigger, deeper wines of the vintage, the Suduiraut is firing on all cylinders today. This is a great showing." (4/2014) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Full and rich, this is a powerful wine. It’s packed with botrytis-driven flavors of wild honey and peach, balanced by tight acidity. For long-term aging."

2012 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

(2/2015)93 points Wine Spectator: "Well-built, with a charcoal frame that melds nicely with steeped currant, blackberry paste and dark plum fruit flavors. The long finish is riveted to a graphite underpinning. Remarkably dense, but without the austere twinge of the vintage. Best from 2018 through 2030."

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

Impressively built rich and medium to full-bodied without losing the quintessential elegance and finesse for which this famous estate is renowned, the 2012 Domaine de Chevalier is filled with purity, equilibrium and balance. The tannins are sweet enough that this wine should be accessible when released, and will last for 15-20 years. Is this a modern day clone of their brillia ...Read More »

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 »

The high proportion of Merlot in the blend has given richness to the wine, with a big, fat texture on the finish." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "This is very solid and muscular with dark berries and blueberries. More merlot than normal but shows a serious structure that underlines the excellence of the cabernet. Small production of cabernet here with 45% merlot in the blend."

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."

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.

(2/2015) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 exhibits notes of licorice, truffles, lead pencil shavings, barbecued meats, blackberries, black raspberries and a hint of espresso roast. Sweet new oak notes are apparent in the back of the wine, but its abundant fruit, full-bodied mouthfeel, and multidimensional texture as well as length, make for an impressive showing.

A deep golden color, it has a dense and almost Barsac-like bouquet with tangerine, apricot, acacia and melted candle wax. It displays good intensity, unfolding beautifully in the glass.

Full-bodied (especially for a 2012 as well as a Pomerol), rich, concentrated and strikingly pure, it combines great finesse/elegance with power and substance. It should drink well when released and age nicely for two decades or more." (4/2013)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm, closed and still tough, this wine has enormous potential.

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.

2013 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This has a palpable dry element, with the black currant flavor cut by dark chocolate. It has strong tannins and power. It will need to age." (4/2014) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Lynch-Bages is unusual but also quite pretty. In this vintage the flavors are quite dark, with distinct dark red/purplish overtones. Dried flowers, cloves and sage are some of the notes that develop with time in the glass. The 2013 finishes with lovely length and precision. The blend is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot." (4/2014) 91-92 points James Suckling: "A pretty and tang ...Read More »

2012 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "This is amazing for the second wine with incredible white truffle, stone and currant character. Purity of fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, silky and refined. Fantastic length. Better in 2018 but almost impossible to resist now. Incredible." (2/2015)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Initially densely tannic, this wine quickly reveals a more velvet character that is enhanced by the blackberry fruits. Over half the production at Palmer in 2012 was of this second wine, which is already finely integrated and developing well. Drink from 2020." (5/2015) 88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The second wine, which has gone from strength ...Read More »

2013 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine is very true to the vintage. It has an attractive fragrance and great fruit purity, along with touches of wood and black currant. It is a fine wine, while showing the lightness of the year." (4/2014) 92-93 points James Suckling: "An aromatic wine with a delicacy and suppleness that is exceptional for the vintage with blackberry, mineral, spice and flower character. Very fine tannins. Seamless structure. It’s a wine that makes you want to drink it with its pleasant savory, fruity character. Harmonious."

2013 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a powerful and dense wine, with ripe and rich berry fruit notes. It’s balanced, showing strong tannins in harmony with concentrated fruit. It is rich, generous in texture and sure to age well." (4/2014) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Shows solid flesh from the start, with plum paste notes that belie the vintage, bolstered by dark currant, crushed cherry and raspberry coulis flavors. Offers lots of anise and juniper hints through the finish, accented by an echo of licorice snap. Delivers impressive range and depth. Pure.

2013 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has firm tannins, lending it a dark, serious character. It is hugely concentrated, full of black fruit and sweet wood flavors. Along with the weight, it does have a more elegant side, showing potential balance, freshness and a long finish." (4/2014) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Lafite hits the palate with a burst of dark red and purple fruit. White flowers, mint and licorice all develop in the glass, adding layers of depth and complexity. Smoke, tar, cinnamon, graphite, dried violets and plums are all layered into the resonant finish.

2013 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. A powerful, structured wine, this is dominated by juicy Cabernet Sauvignon but with an aromatic edge from Cabernet Franc. The wine is rich for the vintage, yet with a fresh profile. Balanced, it is a stylish wine that shows a fine future." (4/2014) 91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Léoville-las-Cases is wonderfully deep and layered in the glass. Violets, cloves, menthol and licorice add dimensions of complexity to the dark fruit. Hints of cassis, white flowers and sweet herbs develop later as the wine continues to flesh out. So many 2013s offer up their charms quite ...Read More »

2013 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "Smoke, tobacco, incense and game meld into a core of black stone fruits as the 2013 Haut-Brion shows off its personality. Like most of the reds in this range, the 2013 really needs time in the glass to blossom. Violets, lavender and melted road tar develop over time in a striking, vivid wine endowed with class as well as considerable potential. Haut-Brion is one of the more overtly muscular, broad-shouldered wines of the year. It will be interesting to see what time in barrel brings, but there is a lot to look forward to. The 2013 is 50% Merlot, 45.5% Ca ...Read More »

2013 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Ducru-Beaucaillou is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Black cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and scorched earth blossom on the palate in a rich, resonant wine endowed with terrific depth and intensity for the year. The 2013 is delicate, sophisticated and polished to the core. A blast of red and blue tone fruits linger on the finish. The 2013 is aging in 100% new oak, all of which it has handled impeccably. At press time, Bruno Borie plans to stick to his regime of 18 months in barrel. Readers will find more obvious wines in 2013, but few that speak to t ...Read More »

2013 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. With delicious acidity, this is a fine wine. It has taken advantage of the fruitiness of the year without burdening the wine with too much tannic structure. The result is fine balance." (4/2014) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "The flesh sets this apart from the pack, with layers of black cherry, black currant and plum skin lined with well-integrated apple wood and briar notes. The long, muscular finish maintains the dark profile. Rock-solid." (4/2014) 91-92 points James Suckling: "This shows a solid core of fruit here with a wonderful asphalt, berry and mineral character. Full body, with excellent tannin ...Read More »

2013 l'Eglise Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "One of the most naturally structured wines from the vintage. It’s the most properly structured wine of the vintage. It’s full body with mineral character and an intensity. The old vine cabernet franc gave the backbone. This will need aging." (4/2014) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc blend from the Plateau of Pomerol near the church, the wine has an inky/purple color, a sweet kiss of mulberry and black cherry liqueurs, interwoven with licorice, truffle, a hint of melted road tar and background spice and oak. The wine is opulent, medium to full-bodied and ...Read More »

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a complex, structured, smoothly textured wine.

This is for long-term aging." (4/2014) 92-93 points James Suckling: "This is very solid for the vintage with blackberry, dark chocolate and black currants. Full body, with firm and chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Muscular wine for the vintage." (4/2014) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "This has a good mouthfilling feel, with dark plum and blackberry fruit layered with char ...Read More »
