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."

Wine Spectator: "Aromas of licorice, tar and some blackberry lead to a medium body, with light tannins and a fruity, delicate finish." K&L Notes: Château La Prade, just four and a half hectares, was purchased by the Thienpont family in 2000. Despite the tiny size, part of the vineyards are on the limestone plateau and the rest are on a south-facing slope rich in iron. This somewhat unique terroir results in a rich Merlot-dominated blend with great structure. We tasted this wine on our April 2014 Bordeaux trip and bought it on the spot.

It has a richer bouquet compared to the 2010 with exuberant, explosive scents of acacia honey, dried apricot and a hint of petrol that transposes the exoticism of the vintage. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous opening. There is plenty of vibrant spicy fruit, interwoven with orange rind and pineapple, leading to a beautifully focused an intense finish. Stack this high in your cellar. Drink 2016-2040+. Tasted March 2014." (6/2014) 92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale, full yellow. Racy aromas of pear, apple, peach and marzipa ...Read More »

2010 La Tour de Mons, Margaux Top Pick!
2010 La Tour de Mons, Margaux

90 points James Suckling: "Raspberry and flowers with hints of citrus rind. Full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Clean and well-crafted. Drink or hold." (3/2013)89 points Wine Spectator: "This has a plump, lively feel, with a briary push to the plum, currant and black cherry fruit. Flashes of anise and apple wood show on the finish. Accessible now but nicely balanced for modest cellaring. Drink now through 2020." (3/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Attractive floral notes intermixed with some blueberry, raspberry and loamy soil notes are followed by an elegant medium-bodied wine with sweet fruit, attractive texture and up ...Read More »

2011 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2011 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc

91 points James Suckling: "Aromas of currants and berries with hints of chocolate. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a flavorful finish. Very fine. Cantermerle delivers in 2011. Better in 2016." (2/2014)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An elegant, successful 2011, Cantemerle has produced a finesse-styled wine with a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of flowers, mulberries, raspberries and blueberries. With dramatic quality and purity, this medium-bodied effort possesses sweet tannins and a texture that builds incrementally. A lighter-styled, but beautifully crafted, well done 2011, it can be ...Read More »

2013 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
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 »

2009 Coufran, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2009 Coufran, Haut-Médoc

92 points James Suckling: "Soft and fruity with milk chocolate. Full and round textured. Goes on for a minute or two. Excellent for the vintage. Better than I remember. And better in 2014, but why wait?" (7/2012) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm tannins, but also ripe, sweet fruits, with a fine balance. While the wine is on the light, fresh side, it does have a good, final structure." (4/2010) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This Merlot-dominated wine displays a dense ruby/purple color, soft berry fruit intermixed with mocha, and hints of white chocolate, herbs, and spice. It should drink well for up to a decade or more. (RP)" (4/2010) Wine Spectator: "Solid, wi ...Read More »

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 »

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."

2011 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

94 points James Suckling: "A wine that has a beautiful depth of fruit, with currants, minerals and dried flowers on the nose and palate. 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." (2/2014)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The grand vin, the 2011 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is another great successes (and that’s saying something after the remarkable duo of 2009 and 2010 as well as the brilliant 2008). This wine exhibits a dense purple color along with a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, mulberries, licorice and ...Read More »

1995 Calon-Ségur, St Estèphe

95 points Wine Spectator: "Incredible nose of crushed berries, flowers, spices and nuts. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Powerful and solid. Builds on the palate. Give it time. (Web Only-2007)"92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine is opaque purple-colored. With coaxing, the tight aromatics reveal some weedy cassis intertwined with truffles, chocolate, and beef blood-like aromas. On the palate, there is an element of sur-maturite (1995 was an extremely late harvest at Calon-Ségur), fabulous density and purity, and a boatload of tannin. This deep, broodingly backward, classic Bordeaux ...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 »

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 »

2009 d'Issan, Margaux Top Pick!
2009 d'Issan, Margaux

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong effort from proprietor Emmanuel Cruse, d’Issan’s 2009 was fashioned from minuscule yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, and its 13.7% natural alcohol set a record at this estate. Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, it exhibits a classic Margaux fragrance of acacia flowers/violets, blueberries, cassis, licorice and camphor. Opulent and full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a rich, dense style, it will be interesting to compare the 2009 with the brilliant 2000 and 2005 over the next two to three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2 ...Read More »
