2009 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

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. This property is really on a roll now, delivering racy and structured reds; it gives much more freshness and character to the wine. (Web Only- 2010)"95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is not unusual that the 2009 La Lagune is a spectacular effort given the fact that this estate has been making terrific wines over the last decade or ...Read More »

2000 Latour-Martillac, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

94 points Wine & Spirits: "(no note given)" (12/2003)92 points Wine Spectator: "* Smart Buys and Ranked #31 on Top 100 Wines of 2003 * Very, very impressive for this estate. Blackberry and cigar tobacco, with hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety tannins and a long finish. Best after 2010." (3/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sweet cedar, plum, currant, and fresh herbs cascade from this evolved, dense ruby/purple-colored 2000. The flavors mirror the aromas - big, sweet, flamboyant notes of cedar, mulberries, black currants, and smoke can be found. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, concentrated, and substantial, this impres ...Read More »

2014 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival) New!
2014 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Labégorce is round, supple and nicely layered. Smoke, plums, black cherries and French oak meld together in a ripe, racy Margaux built on textured fruit. Sweet floral notes add lift on the layered, sensual finish. This voluptuous Margaux should drink well pretty much upon release. There is a lot to like, that much is clear. The blend is 58% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. Michel Rolland is the Consultant for Labégorce, which is owned by the Perrodo family. Here, the winemaking style appears to be better suited to the intrinsi ...Read More »

1986 Mouton Baronne Philippe, Pauillac (1.5L)

93 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 1989* Classic Pauillac aromas of rich, thick currant and black cherry with distinct cedary flavors that are very concentrated and wrapped in firm tannins. Beautifully focused and built for the long haul." (5/1989) Jancis Robinson: "Still very dark ruby with lots of fine sediment and a nicely shaded rim. The intense and mature bouquet came soaring out of the bottle as soon as it was opened. (This was the year when its stablemate Mouton was very highly regarded.) Strong lead pencil aromas - much less obviously fruity younger vintages. But there is obviously ...Read More »

1998 Siran, Margaux (1.5L)

According to Robert Parker: "A powerful, structured, dark ruby/purple-colored effort, the muscular, dense, ageworthy 1998 is one of the finest Medoc cru bourgeois (black currants, earth, and oak dominate). Made in a closed, but classic style, it will be at its finest between 2005-2020." (04/01) According to the Wine Spectator: "Plenty of currant, blackberry and vanilla. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a fresh fruit finish. Siran makes good wine. Best after 2005." (01/01)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. The wine is serious, darkly structured and firm in character, packed with tannins that lend a very dry feel. Fragrant fruitiness and intense acidity shine through for a very fine wine, likely to age over several decades." (4/2015) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "Features a youthfully muscular edge, but remains elegant despite the heft, with a core of plum, red currant and raspberry fruit, guided by supple tannins and backed by subtle tobacco and spice hints. A light bay thread chimes in on the finish, while a juniper detail adds a pleasant underpinning. Displays admirable ...Read More »

2000 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis (1.5L)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under any new classification, this should certainly be a classed growth. Today it is among the leaders of the crus bourgeois. The 2000 is opulent, generous, stylish. The tannins are ripe and sweet, the fruit is finely balanced. It will develop well over the next 10-15 years."

Made from the estate's 82 hectares of vines grown on typical Garonne gravel, 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.

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. Medium-ruby color and enticing aromas of blackberries and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with milk chocolate and coffee flavors and soft texture." (5/1999)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 is opaque in color, with a huge, peppery, spicy, black cherry nose intermingled with aromas of Provencal herbs. In the mouth, there is excellent richness, a density and thickness to the texture, fine spice, tannin and glycerin in the long finish. (RP)" (2/1993) K&L Notes: Over the years Ch. Lanessan has gained quite a following here at K&L for offering exceptional Bordeaux values. While this is more expensive than many of our previous offerings, it is still quite the bargain from the outstanding 1990 vintage. K&L's co-owner and Bordeaux buyer, Clyde Beffa J... Read More »

(4/2011)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is an austere, structured wine. Its tannic framework currently dominates, giving the impression of a firm wine. It feels like classic Bordeaux, upright and dense. This makes for a wine that will need several years' aging."

2014 La Mission Haut-Brion Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2014 is a blend of 54% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, picked between 15 September and 8 October raised in 55% new oak. It has a very fresh and precise bouquet, not one that marches out the barrack in confidence fashion, but rather unfolds piece-by-piece in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a structured and neatly placed opening: a little masculine for La Mission Haut-Brion at this stage, linear and focused, maintaining precision rather than aiming from power and roundness.

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)

(10/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the better Clarkes ever made, this wine from the cool, backwater appellation of Listrac displays serious density, an opaque ruby/purple color, and lots of earth, black currants and raspberries.

It is a medium to full-bodied wine with beautiful concentration, decent acidity, and ripe tannin. Despite its humble appellation, this is a very serious wine that is qualitatively up there with some of the better classified growths of the Medoc. It should drink beautifully for 8-10 years.

It is still young, and the dry tannic aftertaste, which lasts for many minutes, shows this."

Medium to full-bodied, the hard, elevated tannins give this wine a certain austerity, but its outstanding weight, richness, and that very classic style argue for further discipline."

Super long and beautiful, with fine tannins that last for minutes. Tight now, but juicy and gorgeous. Best ever from here." (02/2012)

2005 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, Pauillac (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker: "The finest Duhart-Milon ever made? This structured, tannic, dense ruby/purple-tinged Pauillac offers up hints of cassis, licorice, chocolate, and earth. Medium to full-bodied with good purity, strong tannins, and undeniable elegance, it reveals a character not dissimilar from its renowned sibling, Lafite-Rothschild... It is unquestionably outstanding, but to my taste, slightly less opulent than the estate’s ethereal 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030." (04/08) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark in color, almost black, with beaut... Read More »

1999 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Slightly earthy, featuring tobacco, cigar box and dark fruits. Full-bodied, offering supervelvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Plenty of subtle things are going on here in the glass, with lots of wonderful fruit underneath. Can't wait on this. Showing beautifully now. Better than ever." (2010) 90 points Stephen Tanzer: "Dark ruby-red, a bit pale at the rim. Evolving aromas of currant, tobacco, cigar box, mocha and earth. Sweet, lush and rich; in a distinctly easygoing style, thanks to the very ripe merlot, which comprises ... Read More »

2001 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 2001 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (1.5L) (95WE, 93RP, 92ST, 92WS). Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* The high proportion of Merlot in Pichon Lalande is a good reason why this wine, among the great wines of Pauillac, is always so seductive. This is no exception; it charms as well as excites with vibrant fruits as well as serious, dense tannins and acidity that promise good aging. Give it 7-9 years for full maturity to begin."

2001 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (1.5L) (qty: 1)

2004 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (1.5L)

94 points James Suckling: "On the nose there's coffee and chocolate aromas with hints of vanilla. Super fruity, and its medium body is coupled with beautifully soft tannins. This is just coming around now and it's very New World in style. Overall, a much overlooked vintage from Mouton." (8/2013)94 points Wine & Spirits: "Supple and grand, Mouton has a heavenly richness in 2004. The flavors are saturated with blackberry and black-cherry fruit, bright on the aroma, quieter and softer in the end. The wine has a laconic beauty, closed off behind its oak and stony tannin. With several days of air, the succulence ...Read More »

1996 Lynch Bages, Pauillac (1.5L)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 exhibits a dark plum/ruby/purple color that is just beginning to lighten at the edge, surprisingly velvety tannins and a classic Pauillac bouquet of lead pencil shavings, cedarwood, black currants, sweet cherries and spice box. This medium to full-bodied, elegant, savory, broad wine is still five years away from full maturity. It should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years. (RP)" (8/2011)92 points Wine Spectator: "This is much more open than the 1995. Offers aromas and flavors of currant, mint and spices. Full-bodied, soft and velvety, with a fruit finish. Starti ...Read More »

2001 Canon La Gaffeliere, St-Emilion (1.5L)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Pretty berry and spice aromas, with hints of new wood. Turns to animal and meat character but blows off with lots of air. Decadent juice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Lovely stuff. Slightly reductive now, but this should come out lovely. Best after 2007." (03/04) 92 points Robert Parker: "...exhibits scents of espresso roast, cedar, chocolate, black currants, and cherries. With sweet but noticeable tannin, exceptional multilayered flavors, and excellent texture, elegance, as well as purity, it w... Read More »
