2009 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2009 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc

93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Floral and precise fruit, with blackberry-skin character and mineral undertones. Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Long and tight. Racy. Lovely texture. 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 percent Merlot and 15 percent Petit Verdot.

2014 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Here is a ripe and smoky wine, with a firm, tannic structure and a sense of the deep gravel terroir. The high proportion of Merlot in the blend has given richness to the wine, with a big, fat texture on the finish." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "This is very solid and muscular with dark berries and blueberries. More merlot than normal but shows a serious structure that underlines the excellence of the cabernet. Small production of cabernet here with 45% merlot in the blend."

2014 Rieussec, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This has a phenomenal finish. It’s dense yet agile with dried tropical fruits and spices. Honey, too. Yet so intense and powerful. It really lasts for minutes. Medium sweet yet so fruity and energetic. This shows how you can have ripeness with fruit and then lots of botrytis. Exciting wine."

2005 d'Angludet, Margaux

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This wine raises the question: Where does its Margaux character leave off and its 35% Merlot content take over? It is far too coy to say "somewhere in the middle", yet the seamless fit of fine pieces so integral to good Margaux wines and the sweet cherry fruit that lies at the heart of this attractive bottling have clearly produced a wine that is both rich and even slightly succulent."

(2/2015)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This great terroir, long owned by the Gratiot family, has come to life under the inspired winemaking of Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt. Some recent vintages have been legendary efforts, especially 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

One of the bigger, deeper wines of the vintage, the Suduiraut is firing on all cylinders today. This is a great showing." (4/2014) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample.

(7/2006)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good red-ruby color. Very ripe aromas of redcurrant and smoke. Dense and sweet but a tad rustic, with flavors of roasted dark fruits, chocolate and menthol. Offers a smooth texture, ripe acidity and sneaky length, but could use more precision of flavor and thrust." (6/2006)

The structure and tannins are almost buried among all of the velvety fruits, ripe berry flavors and layered wood notes. That said, it still has complexity and richness that promise aging, with the final acidity giving some brightness."

Lots of papaya, pears and pineapple. Racy." (3/2015) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Aile d'Argent shows a move to a slightly more reductive style that emphasizes a bit more freshness than has been the norm in the recent past for Mouton's Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend.

1989 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 d'Angludet is one of this property's best wines since their excellent 1983. It does not, however, appear to have the stuffing necessary to surpass that wine. It is fat, plump, intensely fruity with a good ruby color, supple texture, high alcohol, and soft tannins." (2/1993) Wine Spectator: "Ready to drink.

As usual, I have to conjecture how the final blend will manifest itself, a task becoming easier now that I have tasted through individual lots for several years. Clearly, the first tries contain zesty citrus fruit with crisp acidity and strong botrytis character, the second tries lending the structure and the Barsac/Climens character. I noticed a "marine" influence on the final tries picked on October 21 and 23, although here there is a slight attenuation ...Read More »

1994 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien (1.5L)

This, the second wine of Gruaud Larose, provides value and near-term drinkability for those looking for a classic though ripe St-Julien. Named after Baron Jean Auguste Sarget, one of the men who purchased the Gruaud-Larose property in 1812 and whose family managed the estate for the following fifty years. Over the next century, the estate would be divided, with a portion being controlled by the Sarget family. The estate has since been reunited and the château that Sarget built stands as the centerpiece of the property. The estate introduced the second wi... Read More »

1990 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "D'Angludet's 1990 rivals their 1989. More noticeably tannic than the 1989, without that vintage's sweet fruit and opulence, the 1990 is, nevertheless, a fine wine. It exhibits deep color, rich, herbaceous fruit, medium body, and plenty of substance in its finish. (RP)" (2/1993)

2004 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

91 points Wine Spectator: "Very pretty and perfumed, with plum, vanilla and chocolate aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2011." (3/2007)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another sleeper of the vintage from this somewhat under the radar step-child of Anthony Barton’s more famous Leoville Barton, the 2004 Langoa Barton exhibits deep, concentrated, chunky, black currant and cherry fruit intermixed with notions of forest floor and aged beef blood. This impressive, full-bodied, powerful, ageworthy St.-Julien is atypically backward and brooding. Anticipated maturity: 2013-202 ...Read More »

1996 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, d'Angludet's 1996 reveals an opaque purple color, as well as a powerful, rich, black currant-scented nose with cedar, weedy tobacco, licorice, and earth in the background. Dense, backward, and atypically powerful and unevolved for a wine from this well-run chateau, this boldly made, tannic, yet impressively endowed wine will have a long lifeline. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2015." (4/1999) Wine Spectator: "Not a big wine, but a delicious drinkable style that shows good finesse. Aromas of berries and spices follow through to the palate. Medium-bodie ...Read More »

1990 Meyney, St-Estèphe

89 points Wine Spectator: "A bit rustic, but impressive. Dark garnet color. Lots of currant, prune and cherry on the nose. Full-bodied, with tobacco, cherry and tar character and big velvety tannins.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now." (8/2000) Decanter: "Deep red; reserved nose; rich, rounded, ripe tannins, fruit rather muted now but good potential; quite good length." (6/1994) K&L Notes: One of the oldest estates in the Médoc, Château Meyney sits on a hilltop overlooking the Gironde estuary. The wine is deep red, earthy, and well-structured.

1999 Fugue de Nenin, Pomerol (1.5L)

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.

1995 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 is a silky, supple, charming, forthcoming wine that is well above its cru bourgeois classification. The color is a healthy saturated deep ruby/purple, and the wine offers up gobs of jammy black fruits intermixed with subtle herbs, spice, and toast. In the mouth, the wine displays excellent richness, a layered, medium-bodied personality, well-disguised tannin and acidity, and a hedonistic mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. A sleeper of the vintage." (2/1998) Wine Spectator: "Refined, pretty '95. Currants, blackberries and green tobacco aromas. Medium-bodied ...Read More »

2012 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. This very ripe, full-bodied wine is powered by sweet blackberries and solid tannins. It is a full, concentrated and complex wine that has a great future." (4/2013)92 points James Suckling: "On the nose and palate this red suggests red and black plums with cedar notes and hints of cloves. Full body, firm tannins, fresh acidity and an intense finish. Minerally, too. Polished tannins. Drink in 2020." (2/2015)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Owned by the Cuvelier family since 1920, this property over the last 20 years has made some great wines in the Médoc. The 2012, a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27 ...Read More »

2001 Labegorce, Margaux (1.5L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A straightforward, dark plum/garnet-colored effort, the 2001 Labegorce reveals smoky, earthy elements intertwined with cherries, plums, and cedar. Medium-bodied and elegant..." (6/2004) Wine Enthusiast: "Huge investment is paying off at Labegorce. And it has not resulted in a wine that is simply modern in style. For here the new wood is well integrated, the fruit is structured, and never too extracted, and the ripeness also has layers of Bordeaux dryness." (6/2005) Wine Spectator: "Soft and simple, with plum, coffee and light tobacco character. Medium body. Silky finish." (3/2004)
