2014 Capbern St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Pure and direct, with a textbook beam of cassis and bitter cherry notes, laced with lilac and iron hints. The racy, unencumbered finish lets the mineral edge shine.

But the 2000 also shows exceptionally well. In need of another decade of cellaring, this dense purple wine has a classic nose of incense, charcoal, creme de cassis, and subtle new oak. Full-bodied, powerful, still very tannic, and shockingly backward, this is a big, rich wine that has put on weight and seems to need more time than I originally predicted. A ...Read More »

2012 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This is fabulous. It's a white that is so vertical with wonderful depth of fruit and structure. It goes on for minutes. Dense and complex. It's so structured and amazing. Peaches and mineral with a salty and savory character. It is captivating to taste now." (4/2013) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Under the capable hands of the Cathiard family, this property has been producing fabulous red and white wines. The 2012, another brilliant effort, exhibits notes of orange rind, figs, mangoes, pineapples and caramelized citrus presented in a full-bodied, heady, powerful style.

2012 d'Armailhac, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Features a solid core of anise and plum, with a briary frame and light tobacco shading that should emerge with time. Shows good substance and weight. Tasted non-blind." (4/2013) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This fruity wine is soft and open with flavors of ripe red-berry fruits and fresh acidity. It's expressive with immediately attractive tannins."

2012 Canon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A dense ruby/purple color is followed by notes of black raspberries, blueberries, crushed rocks and spring flowers. This medium to full-bodied, well-endowed, authoritative Canon reveals some serious tannin in the finish, so 4-5 years of cellaring will be needed after bottling. It should last 15-20 years." (4/2013) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. This dense, extracted wine has dark coffee and bitter chocolate flavors that are followed by wood and tannins. The fruit is still obscured, and may need many years for its dark character to emerge." (4/2013)93 points James Suckling: "A very silky and elegant ...Read More »

2009 Figeac, St-Emilion

98 points James Suckling: "The aromas in this are amazing, with blueberries, blackberries and fresh mushrooms. Black olives. So aromatic. Full-bodied, with super velvety tannins and lovely depth of ripe fruit. Balanced. Wild flavors on the finish of, meat, berries and forest fruits. Hints of decadence. 33% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon. Best Figeac ever. Try after 2020." (2/2012)96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A ripe year like 2009 is kind to the Cabernet Sauvignon of Château Figeac.

2014 Hosanna, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The wine has big tannins and big fruits to match them, which should result in a wine that will age very well. It is rich and exuberant in ripe black fruits and opulence." (4/2015) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, with solid grip, this remains very pure, featuring a polished beam of raspberry and plum fruit coursing along, inlaid with mouthwatering anise, incense and dried blood orange notes. Shows serious depth and length already, but could improve even more during the élevage." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "Focused and tight with chewy tannins and lots of blueberry, blackberry and a wet earth character. ...Read More »

2014 Beychevelle, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. With fresh acidity over the delicious black currant fruits, this is a fine wine. It has enough weight and structure in its strongly tannic background to give great promise for the future, though it is so balanced now." (4/2015) 93-94 points James Suckling: "A firm and austere young red now but there's serious fruit and mineral character underneath. Full body, chewy tannins and a long finish." (3/2015) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Well-packed, with plum cake, bramble, blueberry patch and anise notes, all allied to a graphite edge on the finish. Racy acidity underscores everything. Rock-solid." (4/2015) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "A ...Read More »

2014 l'Evangile, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival) New!
2014 l'Evangile, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Tightly coiled for now, offering raspberry, bitter plum and dark currant fruit that should unwind slowly. Features charcoal and smoldering tobacco notes, with a hint of loam underscoring the finish. Always among the more muscular Pomerols, with a substantial percentage of Cabernet Franc, and 2014 is no different. Tasted non-blind." (4/2015) 91-92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, oyster shell and black licorice. Full body and a firm and muscular backbone of tannins. Slightly austere." (3/2015)

2014 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Lime and ripe pear tones are made richer by the yellow fruits that power out of this wine. Showing nice weight and freshness, this wine will be powerful and hugely concentrated." (4/2015) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "A fresh, clean, direct style in the making, with bright pear, quince and green fig aromas and flavors. Exhibits a sleek feel through the finish. Should be very solid" (4/2015) 93-94 points James Suckling: "This is a refined and pretty wine with white peach, spice and honey character. Full-bodied, medium sweet yet refined and pretty. Harmonious. It takes off with the spice character at the ...Read More »
