2010 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves Top Pick!
2010 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves

90 points Wine Spectator: "This has a dense, chewy feel, with licorice root, coffee and tar notes leading the way, backed by dense plum and black currant paste flavors. There's a nice saturated feel through the finish, with tarry grip hanging on for added length. Best from 2014 through 2022.

At 300 feet above the Garrone River, the vineyards have stunning views of the lovely Côtes de Bordeaux. The vineyard's elevation is a key factor in its great drainage, and the so... Read More »

2010 Le Bonnat, Graves

Wine & Spirits: "Round and warm with a Creole-like spice, this is a red-fruited wine with a green peppercorn and mint snap. The wine’s dry tannins need braised lamb to bring them into line." (10/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "Packed with dark tannins, this complex wine shows a powerful structure allied with very fresh acidity and red berry fruits. It is still feeling its way, heavy on the texture and still waiting for the fruit. Drink from 2014." (12/2013) Wine Spectator: "A tarry frame surrounds a core of red currant, plum skin and grilled savory notes. A pebbly feel on the finish adds some interest. Drink now thro ...Read More »

95 points Wine & Spirits: "No note given." (12/2004)95 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of violets, berries and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, with layers of supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Very classic in style. All in elegance and length. I like it better than the 2000. Best after 2009." (3/2004)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Haut-Brion's 2001, which was bottled late (the end of September, 2003), possesses an unmistakable nobility as well as a burgeoning complexity. Plum/purple to the rim, this blend of 52% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 12% Cabernet Franc is playing it close to the vest, having clo ...Read More »

1996 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

93 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous aromas of crushed berries, cigar box, black licorice and tanned leather. Full-bodied, with fine silky tannins and a medium to long finish. Seems a little tight right now. But refined and pretty. Nice for the vintage. (Web Only—2007)"92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It will be a potentially long-lived wine. The 1996 exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, and a surprisingly tight bouquet. With aeration, notes of fresh tobacco, dried herbs, smoke, asphalt, and black fruits emerge ... but reluctantly. It is tannic and medium-bodied, with outstanding purity and a layered, multidimensiona ...Read More »

2005 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Perhaps the strongest wine I have ever tasted from Malartic Lagravière, the 2005 has a dense ruby/purple color and a wonderfully sweet nose of crème de cassis, graphite, and soil undertones. Medium-bodied., smoky, with classic scorched earth, Graves-like aromatics and flavors, this wine displays impeccable winemaking, with pure fruit, medium body, and gorgeously long, rich flavors and moderate levels of tannin. The wine should be relatively drinkable in 3-5 years and last for at least two decades or more. This is possibly the finest Malartic Lagravière e ...Read More »

2012 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pape Clement is one of the stars of the vintage, which is not surprising given this estate's performances over the last 10-15 years. A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, it exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color along with a beautifully sweet, graphite-scented nose with hints of black currants, Asian plum sauce, soy and forest floor. Impressively built with medium to full-bodied flavors, it has more layers than many wines from this vintage, an appealing density and a velvety texture. Yields were a m ...Read More »

2012 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark in structure, with a sense of austerity and dark tannins, this is a wine that will need time to develop. There's a hint of tobacco and ripe plum on the palate, and the aftertaste promises juiciness." (4/2013)94 points James Suckling: "A beautiful red with plums and chocolate and hints of licorice. Full body, with super polished tannins. Ripe fruit with forest undergrowth, dark fruits and sweet tobacco. Goes on for minutes." (4/2013) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While the 2012 Haut-Bailly is not as powerful or rich as the 2009 and 2010, it is classically elegant, racy and noble. This medium-bodied effort is ...Read More »

1982 Carbonnieux Rouge, Graves (3L)

Robert Parker… 'I have only had this wine once in the last ten years. Tasted at the Chateau, it revealed surprisingly delicious, ripe cherry fruit, a textbook Graves nose (tobacco, minerals, herbs), fine sweetness, and a lush, medium-bodied, seductive style. Although the wine has been drinkable most of its life, it exhibits no signs of decline. The color is just beginning to lighten at the edge. The 1982 Carbonnieux should continue to drink well for another decade . Tasted once since bottling. (Dec-95)'

2012 Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

92-93 points James Suckling: "On the nose and palate this red suggests blackberries with cedar notes and hints of spices. Full body, silky tannins, fresh acidity and a long finish. The minerality and length is wonderful. This keeps getting better and better. Drink in 2020." (2/2015)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "New wood shows strongly in this wine that has structure and a dry core to match the ripe berry fruits and rich texture. The wine has potential with its juicy fruitiness and dark chocolate flavors. Wait until 2019 before drinking." (5/2015) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 44% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon.T ...Read More »

1997 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan New!
1997 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

Jancis Robinson: "Very firm crimson and, like the Canon, some real bottle development on the nose. This would have been made quite early on in the Cathiards’ tenure – pre Rolland by the taste of it (although see your turn). I really like that lift and minerally life. It’s a steal at the price. You’d have to be careful what you served with it – nothing too forceful – but this is a real (old-fashioned?) claret lover’s drink. Some neatness and length. Lovely transparency. This does taste like Graves. Hallelujah!" (11/2005) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Splendid aromatics of tobacco, ripe black currant frui ...Read More »

1998 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac Leognan

93 points Wine Spectator: "A wine bursting with berry and green tobacco character, plus lots of currant, raisin and spice aromas. Full-bodied, with full, velvety tannins and a long aftertaste of tobacco and earth. Mouthpuckering. Best DC in years. Best after 2006." (1/2001)

2005 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "An impressive nose of spices, dark fruits, and fresh forest flowers. Full-bodied, this has a solid core of fruit and super polished tannins. A fabulous wine, showing great structure and harmony, and a long, long finish. Beautiful stuff. Pull the cork in 2015." (3/2011)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One can’t say enough about the accomplishments the Cathiards have achieved at this property since 1990. Prior to their purchase of the property, appallingly diluted, vegetal, fruitless, charmless wines were produced, but they have turned Smith-Haut-Lafitte into a showcase Pessac-Leognan.
