1997 Potensac, Médoc

Jancis Robinson: "Dark glowing crimson. Grunty, very concentrated. Arguably the miracle here is to find a wine from Jean-Hubert Delon under £20. And one you could actually think of drinking too. This should certainly appeal to classicists—especially those knowledgeable enough to know it’s related to the most expensive super second of all, Léoville Las Cases." (9/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A soft, cedary, herbaceous, but pleasant, round, elegant style of wine, with berry and red currant fruit, and a smooth finish...

2003 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (375ml)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always one of the better values and ageworthy wines from the Haut-Medoc, Lanessan’s 2003 possesses lots of cedarwood, creme de cassis and forest floor notes, outstanding ripeness, low acidity, and a round, generous mouthfeel with no desiccation or flaws. (RP)" (8/2014) Spirit Journal: "Dense crimson. Delicate scent. Complete if not exactly subtle. A bit brutal with lots of acidity. And those dry tannins, and some rasping greenness on the end. (15/20 points)" (10/2010) Wine Spectator: "Aromas of plum, spices and cherry follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with stewed fruit and a light fi ...Read More »

2001 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lanessan's 2001 is a consistent overachiever in Haut-Medoc. This wine nearly rivals the outstanding 2000. It is a seriously-extracted, dark ruby/purple-colored offering with ripe cassis fruit, notes of leather and earth, and a hint of truffles. It is medium-bodied, pure, and savory, with copious tannin. It will age well for 10-15 years." (4/2002) K&L Notes: Over 10,000 bottles sold over the years. A perfect drinking wine right now. So delicious and mineral driven. Sweet core of fruit. Buy cases.

(11/2009) Wine & Spirits: "The aroma is complex and layered with rich cherries and smoky oak tones. This is a smooth-textured, traditional St-Emilion.

2001 Corbin Michotte, St-Emilion

Corbin Michotte owns 32 acres of vineyards in the Saint-Emilion region, bordering the Pomerol appellation. Two distinct soil types exist in the estate vineyards: sandy soils on iron-clay subsoil, and clay soils. This duality of the terroir contributes to the complex yet balanced wines for which Corbin Michotte is known. 2001 was a very good year for Bordeaux reds in this region; they are characterized by a refined style and ripe tannins. Super delicious wine.

The 1997's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood.

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." (6/2010)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. Deep, smoky aromas of cassis, raspberry, leather, chocolate and roasted oak. Sweet, supple and thick but not at all heavy. A very concentrated wine ...Read More »

2000 Latour-Martillac, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

94 points Wine & Spirits: "(no note given)" (12/2003)92 points Wine Spectator: "* Smart Buys and Ranked #31 on Top 100 Wines of 2003 * Very, very impressive for this estate. Blackberry and cigar tobacco, with hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety tannins and a long finish. Best after 2010." (3/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sweet cedar, plum, currant, and fresh herbs cascade from this evolved, dense ruby/purple-colored 2000. The flavors mirror the aromas - big, sweet, flamboyant notes of cedar, mulberries, black currants, and smoke can be found. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, concentrated, and substantial, this impres ...Read More »

1999 Canon-La Gaffelière, St-Emilion

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Canon La Gaffeliere's opaque purple-colored 1999 is a strong effort for this vintage. It displays a sweet nose of pain grille, smoke, meats, graphite, blackberry, and cassis liqueur. The wine is full-bodied, deep, powerful, and rich, with sweet tannin and low acidity. This is a blockbuster effort for a delicate vintage such as 1999. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016." (4/2002)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. Aromas of plum, currant, game and leather. Silky-sweet and aromatic in the mouth, with lovely vinosity to frame the expressive flavors of roasted plum, currant, black ...Read More »

2005 Latour-Martillac, Pessac-Léognan

Jancis Robinson: "Very thick and sweet and a bit furry. Lacks freshness though certainly opulent. (16/20 points)" (2/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A deep ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by aromas of lead pencil shavings, smoke, toasty oak, and sweet black cherries and currants in this medium-bodied Pessac-Leognan. It possesses good acidity, excellent concentration, and a firm, slightly austere, astringent finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025. (RP)" (4/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red-ruby. Full-blown aromas of plum, mocha, hot stones, camphor and nutty, spicy oak, along with a whiff of leather. Sweet, lush ...Read More »

1995 Lafon-Rochet, St-Estèphe

Jancis Robinson: "Very bright crimson. Quite gamey and evolved on the nose. Lots of minerals there too. Not heavy. Quite delicate really. In that it’s a light-bodied but very evolved wine. A little drying on the end." (2/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine may merit an outstanding score after several more years in the bottle. Although it has closed down since bottling, it is an impressively endowed, rich, sweet cassis smelling and tasting Lafon-Rochet. The wine's impressively saturated deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by vanillin, earth, and spicy scents, medium to full body, excellent to ...Read More »

2005 Senejac, Haut-Médoc

90 points Wine Spectator: "There's lots of grapey character, with blackberry and hints of smoky oak. Full-bodied, with lovely soft tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2011." (3/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An attractive, reasonably priced offering, the 2005 Senejac exhibits subtle aromas of roasted herbs interwoven with scents of cedar, fruitcake, black currants, and cherries. Medium-bodied and slightly tannic, it will provide savory drinking over the next 10-12 years." (4/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright full ruby. Aromas of crushed cherry and raspberry. Supple but quite classically dry, even a bit peppery. Disti ...Read More »

1995 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 1995 Chateau d’Yquem is moving into its secondary aroma phase. 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. The palate has a strident opening, with a slight bitter edge that lends this Yquem great tension. One can discern layers of marmalade infused with honey fruit, with a powerful, spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is drinking perfectly now, but will surely age ...Read More »

2000 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "With its distinctive antique bottle and gold etched label dominated by a sheep, this is definitely a move away from classic Bordeaux bottling. It is good that the wine can support the presentation. The fruit is so ripe, it almost tastes of raisins, but that sweetness is finely balanced by the dry tannins and concentrated texture. To finish, there are exotic spices, giving an almost oriental character to the long aftertaste." (6/2003)96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Perhaps the most beautiful packaging ever on a Bordeaux bottle, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild literally produced a work ...Read More »

2005 Quinault L'Enclos, St-Emilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This highly-focused wine exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue in addition to a beautiful bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, camphor, spring flowers, and spice box. With superb concentration, a hint of minerals, and a lovely textured mouthfeel, it should be approachable in 5-6 years, and age easily for two decades or more. (RP)" (4/2008)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby-red. Sexy aromas of cherry, minerals, iron and smoked meat. Juicy and sappy for the year, with lovely energy to the concentrated flavors of cherry, minerals, smoke, flowers and earth. Very sophisticated, shap ...Read More »
