2009 Larteau, Bordeaux Supérieur (Previously $15) Top Pick!
2009 Larteau, Bordeaux Supérieur (Previously $15)

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." (4/2010) K&L Notes: Chateau Larteau is a carefully modernized 18th Century property with 12 hectares planted in the gravelly soils beside the Dordogne. Vinification of this 100% Merlot takes place in temperature-controlled concrete vats before the wine is aged for 18 months in 30% new Allier oak barrels. The wine is fruity and generous and enjoyable in its youth, but with an aging potential of 5-10 years in ... Read More »

2011 Malmaison, Moulis (Previously $20)

Wine Spectator: "A soft and charming style, with a perfumy edge around the lightly steeped plum and cherry fruit. Lingering sandalwood and tea notes line the finish, which shows good persistence. Drink now through 2015. (Web-2014)"

1999 Fugue de Nenin, Pomerol Top Pick!
1999 Fugue de Nenin, Pomerol

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The palate is quite sweet with a note of fig and raisin. Firm, well-integrated tannins with a rich black, liquorice finish. Very good for a second wine....Tasted July 2004. (NM-Wine Journal)" Wine Spectator: "A pleasant red, with tobacco cedar and plum character. Medium body, fine tannins and fresh finish... Second wine of Nenin. Best after 2002." (3/2002) K&L Notes: Alex and I tasted this beauty and bought it on the spot. Tons of blackberry fruit flavors and a spicy palate impression. Enjoy with rack of lamb. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux Buyer)

2012 Cartier, St-Emilion (Previously $20)

What a delicious wine. Soft and supple with tons of spicy fruit on the nose and palate. Semi-new wave, but fine structure and balance. Excellent value. Another find on our 2012 Bordeaux buy trip. Organically cultivated. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Co-Owner and Bordeaux Buyer)

2011 Gigault "Cuvée 'Viva" Premières Côtes de Blaye (Previously $15)

91 points James Suckling: "A red with plum and berry character, plus lots of hazelnut. Chalky. Full body with chewy tannins and a fresh finish. This is always excellent. Drink in 2015." (2/2014) Wine Spectator: "Bouncy blueberry and cherry fruit flavors are backed by toasted spice. Open knit and fresh." (4/2012) K&L Notes: One of our favorites from the value regions on the right bank. Cotes de Blaye region now referred to as Cotes de Bordeaux. This wine is 90% Merlot and has a lot of blackberry fruit flavors. Decant one hour and serve with a pot roast.

2011 Magdelaine, St-Emilion (Previously $65)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A dark, dry wine that shows its strong, firm tannins. The wine is well structured, with flavors of mint, new wood and a layer of blackberry fruit." (4/2012)92 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromatic nose of flowers, blackberry and currants. Full body with fine tannins and a subtle finish. The ripe fruit and fine tannins are subdued right now but show potential for the vintage. This is the last vintage of this wine, as the vineyards have been amalgamated into Bélair-Monange. Better in 2017." (2/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "Shows a light menthol note before giving way to a smoky, tobacco-infused core of p ...Read More »

2011 Domaine du Bouscat "La Gargone" Bordeaux Supérieur (Previously $22)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Cuvee La Gargone (14% alcohol) exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, abundant notes of sweet blueberries and black raspberries and significant density and richness. A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for 3-5 years." (4/2014) James Suckling: "This shows lots of excellent fruit, with spices, chikies and chocolate. Full and dense. Fruity finish. Drink in 2016." (2/2014)

2002 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (Previously $200)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A classic second wine that shows outstanding potential, the dark ruby/purple-colored 2002 has notes of cedar wood, black currants, earth, and truffles in a medium to full-bodied, supple-textured, beautifully concentrated style that can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years. (RP)" (4/2005)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red-ruby. Cool aromas of raspberry, currant, black olive and spicy oak. Sweet, sexy flavors of redcurrant, tobacco, nuts and dried herbs. A bit more compact today than the 2004, but finishes with suave tannins and very good grip. Showing a bit of an acid edge ...Read More »

1970 Rieussec, Sauternes (low neck) (Previously $160)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A little heavier to taste and a bit less elegant than the 1971, the 1970 is a corpulent, rich, sweet mouthful of viscous, chewy Sauternes. The moderately amber/gold color is a sign of approaching maturity, but this wine has the acidity and overall balance to drink nicely for at least another decade. (1998)" K&L Notes: *** From Michael Broadbent: "Surprisingly pale, sweet, spearmint nose, medium sweetness and body, nice rich flavour, good acidity." Neil Martin: "A medium-bodied palate, good acidity, a little ephemeral and very floral. Quite sharp but good delineation.... Read More »

2011 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Previously $150)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a solid, concentrated wine from a reliable chateau. It has weight and power, with rich black fruits balanced with fresh acidity. Touches of bitter extraction and wood aging are likely to integrate as the wine ages. It should develop into an impressive and powerful wine. Drink from 2018." (5/2014)93 points James Suckling: "A 2011 with blackberry, dark-chocolate and smoked-meat character. Full body, silky tannins and a long, intense finish. All about balance and polish. Very fine. Needs three to four years to soften. Try in 2017." (2/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "Warm savory and tob ...Read More »

1996 Troplong Mondot, St. Emilion (Previously $110) Back In Stock!
1996 Troplong Mondot, St. Emilion (Previously $110)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Its dense ruby/purple color with notes of licorice, toasty new oak, and black currant and berry fruit are certainly promising. In the mouth it is medium-bodied, but still the tannin levels are very high and the tannin a bit sharp/astringent. The wine has lost some of its austerity, but still needs to flesh out to merit a score close to 90. Patience is till a prerequisite here, but will it ever become totally harmonious? Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018." (1/2003) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red-ruby color. Redcurrant, raspberry, plum, tobacco, spice and mint on the nose.

1991 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Previously $220)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cos d'Estournel's 1991 (about 50% of the harvest was declassified) is one of the wines to buy given its relatively low price and fine quality. It displays a dark ruby color, and a big, rich nose of cassis fruit married intelligently with spicy new oak. Offering surprising fatness and fleshiness, fine length, and a sweet, creamy texture, it should drink well for at least a decade." (2/1994) Wine Spectator: "One of the best wines of the vintage. Well focused, with lots of chunky fruit. The vanilla, tobacco and chocolate flavors go on and on." (3/1994)

1986 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

90 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant and well-defined Pauillac with layers of vanilla, cedar, plum and currant flavors wrapped in thick tannins that clamp down on the finish. Pretty aftertaste of black cherry and spice. Almost drinkable now." (8/1989) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still youthful yet evolving at a glacial pace, the plum/ruby-colored 1986 has excellent depth, plenty of richness, some spicy wood, as well as a classy bouquet of herbaceous black currants and cedar. The wine is still revealing tannin, but it is not intrusive. (RP)" (1/2003) K&L Notes: 1986 was an excellent Left Bank vintage with perfect October weat... Read More »

2006 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (Previously $250) Top Pick!
2006 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (Previously $250)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant second wine, the 2006 Les Forts de Latour, a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, possesses a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful bouquet of asphalt, cassis, cedar, truffles, and earth, and a full-bodied, dense, beautiful style that is similar to a 1996 Pauillac. It will age effortlessly for 15 years. Latour's brilliant manager, Frederic Engerer, has purchased 15 hectares of old vine Grenache and Syrah in the Cotes du Rhone region, the Drome, at a cool-climate elevation. I can't wait to see the first vintage from this Cotes du ...Read More »

2005 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (3L) (Previously $849)

97 points Wine Spectator: "Very beautiful aromas of crushed berry, flowers, currant and Indian spices follow through to a full body, with ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish. Extremely polished and beautiful, with a seamless texture. Best after 2014. 10,000 cases made." (3/2008)96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A wine with a beautiful mouthfeel and shape. This is rich, gleaming in the ripe black fruits, the touch of spice and mint, as well as the sweet blackberry flavors. The acidity is balanced, showing off the fruit. There is weight and density as well." (6/2008)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most beautiful Rauzan-Seglas made i ...Read More »
