2010 Gloria, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Gloria is an ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate, which would probably be classified if the 1855 hierarchy of the wines of the Medoc were ever done again. Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. It is slightly more restrained than the flamboyant 2009, but equal in quality. This is a juicy, well-proportioned, sensationally concentrated, super-ripe Gloria to drink over the next decades. Of course, it is a sleeper of ...Read More »

2009 Lalande Borie, St-Julien

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich and smooth, with tannins that are ripe, some spice and also intense acidity. The blackcurrant character is dominant." (8/2010)91 points James Suckling: "Round and silky, with a lovely richness of chocolate, currant and plum character. Full and flavorful. Delicious now, but much better in 2015." (2/2012) 87-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Enticing, vibrant, surprisingly forthcoming aromas of cranberry and red cherry syrup. Shows more red fruits on the palate, with strawberry-rhubarb and cranberry cocktail flavors nicely complicated by a hint of citrus. Made in a very open-knit and soft style, but fini ...Read More »

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 »

2009 Duluc de Branaire-Ducru

Jancis Robinson: "Finely textured and attractively savoury. Dry, quite delicate and restrained, especially for 2009. (16.5/20 points)" (4/2013) K&L Notes: The second wine of Branaire-Ducru, this red is ready to drink three to five years after the harvest. And, according to the producer, this wine will evolve even further for the next two decades. Made from vines under 15 years old. Gravity fed, maceration for approximately three weeks and stored in 60-65% new French oak for 16-20 months post-fermentation.

2011 Beychevelle, St-Julien

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This impressive wine follows a straight line of structure, acidity, firm tannins and dark black fruits. The combination is a wine with depth, ripeness and an edge of austerity that demands aging. Drink from 2018." (2/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "A textbook St.-Julien, offering tightly layered dark plum, currant and blackberry fruit, with a strong graphite spine and dark tar and mouthwatering pastis notes on the finish. A well-built, confident wine. Best from 2017 through 2027." (3/2014)90 points James Suckling: "An attractive 2011 with lots of blackberry, hazelnut and walnut character.

1986 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien Back In Stock!
1986 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still tasting as if it were only 7-8 years of age, the dense, garnet/purple-colored 1986 Gruaud-Larose is evolving at a glacier pace. The wine still has mammoth structure, tremendous reserves of fruit and concentration, and a finish that lasts close to a minute. The wine is massive, very impressively constituted, with still some mouth-searing tannin to shed. Decanting of one to two hours in advance seems to soften it a bit, but this is a wine that seems to be almost immortal in terms of its longevity. It is a great Medoc classic, and certainly one of the ...Read More »

Spicy, subtle fruit and a long and marvelous finish. Currant bush undertones. A whole and beautiful wine." (2/2013)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "No longer a second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou, but a wine from its own separate vineyard, Croix de Beaucaillou is impressive. Firm while also rich, it is firmly tannic, superripe and packed with great dark plum and berry fruits. Fruit and structure well balanced together."

Full-bodied, yet very, very refined, with a center core of fruit that tastes like crushed raspberries and goes on and on. Greatest wine from this estate since 1945. Best after 2010." (3/2003)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very strong effort for Gruaud Larose, possibly eclipsed by what they have done in 2009, this is a pure, full-bodied Gruaud Larose with plenty of new saddle leather, cedar wood, black currants, cherries, licorice, and Provencal herbs.

2000 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by scents of boysenberries, black currants, and spring flowers. This medium to full-bodied, pure St.-Julien hits the palate with authority, displaying silky tannins as well as wonderful richness, depth, and texture."

(4/2013) 88-91 points Wine Spectator: "Solid, delivering a beam of raspberry and black currant fruit lined with ganache and backed by chewy yet energetic grip." (4/2013) 87-89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another winner from this estate, which has been on a hot streak over recent vintages, the 2012 Gloria is unquestionably of classified growth quality.

Medium to full bodied, intense, and powerful, this is a wine to consider purchasing by parents who have children born in 1987." (1/1998)

Medium to full-bodied and beautifully pure with sweet tannins, this wine has aged more slowly than I initially expected. It is the finest Ducru Beaucaillou produced after the 1961 and before the 2003. (RP)" (6/2009)93 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that I had forgotten about.

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

Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine and a complete contrast to the extracted behemoth of Leoville Barton and the backward, classic Leoville Las Cases.

1975 Beychevelle, St-Julien (Previously $180)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Early in this wine's life, it tasted precocious and forward for the normally tannic, hard wines of the vintage. However, this wine has now firmed up, and it should turn out to be the longest-lived Beychevelle of the seventies. Dark ruby, with a ripe, spicy, leather-and-black currant-scented bouquet, this full-bodied, weighty, muscular Beychevelle is atypically powerful. Whether it will ever resolve all the tannins remains debatable.... Last tasted, 10/89." (1/1998) K&L Notes: Neal Martin: "A mature mahogany core with tawny rim.

(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.

Full body, with very good depth. Long finish. It keeps going on and on. Very well done. Better than 2011. 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot. Merlot made it happen here." (4/2013) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Solid, with good flesh around the core of plum and blackberry fruit. Shows ample dark toast and ganache notes, displaying c ...Read More »

1983 Talbot, St-Julien

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still one of the best wines from this vintage, particularly in the Medoc, this wine shows notes of licorice, compost, saddle leather, and black fruits. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and lush, with low acidity, ripe fruit, and an intriguing underlying smoky, herbaceous note...(RP)" (1/2003)90 points Wine Spectator: "Sexy, almost decadent, featuring rich tobacco, chocolate, and wet earth aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and very silky with a long rich finish." (10/1994)

1982 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I have had perfect bottles of this cuvee... This huge wine is, in many ways, just as massive as Leoville Barton, but it possesses a greater degree of elegance as well as unreal concentration. Classic lead pencil, cassis, kirsch, cedar, and spice characteristics are abundant in both the nose and full-bodied flavors. The tannins are still there, and, at least from my cellar, this 1982 does not appear to have changed much in the last 10-12 years. One wonders how much patience admirers of this brilliant St.-Julien will continue to exhibit. Anticipated maturi ...Read More »

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

91-92 points James Suckling: "I like the pure and clean fruit with medium to full body, integrated tannins and juicy finish. A sliced lemon and dark fruit undertone. Long subtle finish." (4/2014) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Concentrated and firm, the wine has the freshness of the vintage along with ripe black plum fruits and dark, smoky wood tannins." (4/2014) Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Langoa-Barton is laced with sweet red cherries, crushed flowers, spices and mint, all in a feminine, graceful style with modest depth and structure. Silky tannins support the mid-weight, floral finish. The 2013 should drink nicely righ ...Read More »

1999 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien (1.5L)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers lots of blackberry, mineral and mint on the nose. Full-bodied, with plenty of fruit and racy, polished tannins on the finish. This can go on for many years. But why wait? (Web-2010)" Decanter: "Very fine colour, masses of ripe Cabernet fruit, lovely extraction, impressive. 19.5/20 points" (5/2001) Jancis Robinson: "Rather luscious nose and thick and dense. Lots of fruit. Still quite dry finish. Muscular. Trying to punch at top vintage weight. Medium body - a real success and very good value." (9/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An exotic perfume of tapenade, new saddle leather, damp earth, black currants, ...Read More »

1986 Clos du Marquis, St. Julien

Second wine of Leoville-Las Cases. Writing in the Wine Advocate, Robert Parker has said, "The quality level of the second wine of Leoville-Las Cases is unquestionably better than some of Bordeaux's famed 1855 classification's second- and third-growths," while Neal Martin agrees: "Others may disagree, but I would rate the second wine Clos du Marquis as the best in Bordeaux. The wine has a long history, initiated in 1904 under the aegis of Théophile Skawinski with the 1902 vintage, portending the proliferation of second wines in the 1980's. The wine is sou...

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 »

1995 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

94 points Wine Spectator: "A beautiful wine, with layers of ripe fruit, berry, cedar, vanilla and light spice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Very, very classy stuff. (Web, 2007)"91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Somewhat closed and reticent after bottling, but still impressive, this 1995 possesses a dark ruby/purple color, as well as an oaky nose with classic scents of cassis, vanillin, cedar, and spice. Dense and medium to full-bodied, with softer tannin and more accessibility than the 1996, but not quite the packed and stacked effect on the palate, the 1995 is an outstanding textbook St.-Juli ...Read More »
