2010 Lestruelle, Médoc (Previously $15) Top Pick!
2010 Lestruelle, Médoc (Previously $15)

Jancis Robinson: "Pleasant floral bouquet, mingled with red cherries, red currants, and sweet spices. Firm but ripe tannins giving illusion of sweetness. Beautifully balanced. Not short of finesse at all." (9/2012) Wine Enthusiast: "This is a mint- and licorice-flavored wine, with its wood aging prominent at this stage. Full bodied, rich and concentrated, it shows strong signs of extraction that give it a bitter finish. Age this tannic wine for 2-3 years or more." (3/2013) Wine Spectator: "Primal and direct, with blueberry and loganberry notes backed by a charcoal edge which lingers through the finish. Shows l ...Read More »

90 points James Suckling: "Aromas of plums and bitter chocolate follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a medium toasted oak aftertaste. Lots of wood now but shows excellent structure." (3/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red-ruby. Inviting nose offers black raspberry, mocha and a whiff of chocolatey oak. Sweet, supple and nicely concentrated, with harmonious acidity giving shape to the dark berry flavors. With its rather suave tannins and good length and lift, this elegantly styled wine already gives pleasure."

Better than 2009. Try in 2017." (2/2013)92 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers the profile of the vintage, with spice-infused raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit coursing along nicely, followed by delineated anise and spice notes, all carried by a racy graphite spine. Rock-solid and nicely balanced, this should age elegantly. Best from 2014 through 2024. (Web-2013)" Jancis Robinson: "Rather sweet and sumptuous on the nos ...Read More »

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. (Web-2013)" K&L Notes: The vineyards were purchased by the Allisons in 2002; the fruit was previously sold to Mouton-Rothschild. 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 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

92-93 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that shows lots of chocolate, tobacco and currants. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. All there." (4/2011)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Haut-Bergey 2010 has a very concentrated bouquet with dense blackberry, briary, crushed stone and tobacco on the nose that unfolds in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins on the entry. There is a lot of extraction here, but it is in tune with the acidity and the structured finish has plenty of vibrant red fruit and energy to see it through to ...Read More »

2010 Busquet, Lussac St-Emilion

Wine Spectator: "Offers direct bitter plum and black cherry fruit, with light chalk and toasted vanilla notes guiding the finish. A touch shy on depth for the vintage, but remains charming enough. (Web Only--2013)" K&L Notes: This property is situated north of commune of Lussac. We tasted this delightful wine with Dominque Robin and his daughter Pauline on our 2008 buying trip. : The 2010 is a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine which is very well balanced with no excess tannins.

Very well done for this estate. This shows nicely now but will be better in two or three years." (3/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A relatively soft, round, generously endowed wine with oodles of sweet kirsch fruit, a hint of black currants, herbs and loamy soil notes, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc was cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare.

Long and beautiful. This is the best Lynch in a long, long time. I love the precision here. Try in 2018." (11/2013)96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Lynch Bages is an absolutely brilliant wine, and somewhat reminiscent at this stage in its development of the profound 1989.

2010 Gloria, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Gloria is an ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate, which would probably be classified if the 1855 hierarchy of the wines of the Medoc were ever done again. Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. It is slightly more restrained than the flamboyant 2009, but equal in quality. This is a juicy, well-proportioned, sensationally concentrated, super-ripe Gloria to drink over the next decades. Of course, it is a sleeper of ...Read More »

So enjoyable already. Best ever from here? Better in 2015." (2/2013)92 points Wine Spectator: "This has a really nice graphite frame that drives the core of fig, plum and boysenberry fruit authoritatively, with dense ganache, espresso and tar on the finish. The grip is keeping things tight now, but this should meld in the cellar, as the underlying feel is energetic.

It’s powered by ripe, mature black fruits as well as acids that cut through the dry texture. This needs several years of aging." (2/2013)90 points Wine Spectator: "Focused, with a singed apple wood frame propelling the core of plum, cassis and black cherry fruit. The solid finish lets hints of charcoal and anise flitter in, displaying fine cut. Drink now through 2018." (3/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Dense bright red. Round and fresh.

2010 Haut Charmes, Sauternes (375 ml)

Haut Charmes is a very special Sauternes bottling, made from the younger vines of the region's most legendary château. While we aren't allowed to actually reveal the source, it's safe to say its location in the Ciron Valley exposes the Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon fruit to conditions perfect for the development of botrytis. Charming, elegant and an exceptional value for what's in the bottle. A rich wine with fine acidity, the 2010 has wonderful pineapple and coconut aromas that carry through onto the lush palate.

(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."

2010 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (97RP, 96JS, 95WS, 94WE, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bizarre as it may sound, the 2010 Les Forts de Latour is also the finest I have ever tasted from this selection, which comes from specific vineyards, not really so much a second wine as just another wine from estate holdings. A blend of 72.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27.5% Merlot that represents 40% of the production, this astonishing wine hit 14.3% natural alcohol. Extremely ripe and rich, it reminds me of the 1982 on steroids (and that wine is still drinking great 30 years after the vintage). Sensational notes of graphite, crushed rocks, black fruits, camphor and damp forest notes are present in this expansive, savory, full-throttle wine, which is better than many vintages of the great Latour itself from the past. (That may be a heretical statement, but it’s the truth as I see it.) This wine needs a good 5-6 years of cellaring and should age for three decades a

We loved this wine on our April 2012 Bordeaux trip. A 2010 with lots of sweetness and forward fruit. Blackberries abound here. Great value.

Full-bodied, extravagantly luscious, with a skyscraper-like mid-palate and phenomenal length of close to 50 seconds, the wine has plenty of tannin, but the voluptuous fruit, power and overall glycerin and intensity tend to conceal much of it. Elegant but compellingly rich and authoritative, the 2010 is a truly magnificent wine for this estate, which has one of the ...Read More »

2010 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "This is solid for this estate with currant and chocolate character, full body and a velvety textured finish. Best ever from here? 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot." (4/2011)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the chateaus owned by négociant Borie-Manoux, Lynch-Moussas has produced a fine, stylish 2010, which is firmly based on Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit is rich and ripe, dominated by a blackberry note and underpinned by tannins. This is a chateau to watch." (2/2013)89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 is a strong effort and one of their best wines in a generation or more. Some toasty oak seems relatively ...Read More »

2010 Beychevelle, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Beautiful aromas of blackberries, currants and flowers. Very aromatic. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and gorgeous fruit. It's polished and very refined. One of the best Beychevelles in years. Try in 2018." (2/2013)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing better from bottle than it did from barrel, where it was also impressive, but not quite at this level, the 2010 Beychevelle displays sweet black currant, black cherry, foresty notes, medium to full-bodied texture with impressive purity and moderately high tannins (although they’ve softened considerably during the wine’s upbringing i ...Read More »

2010 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "*A Top 100 Cellar Selection of 2013* Almost black in color, this stunning wine is gorgeous, rich and dense. It's grand and powerful, with a strong sense of its own importance. The beautiful tannins and the fragrant black currant fruits are palpable. It's a great wine, with huge potential." (3/2013)99 points James Suckling: "This is shy and not giving its all at the moment. Yet it is full and intense with a tightly intertwined tannic and fruit structure. Ethereal blackberry, currant, cedar, and nutty flavors. Dried flowers too. Cedar jewel box smell comes out with time. Great finis ...Read More »

2010 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (1.5L)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This rich, full wine shows the chateau to be at the top of its form. It’s finely balanced, pushing both its fruit and acidity, with the tannins taking the supporting role. With its power leashed, this shows the stylish side of Saint-Julien, although it will certainly age for many years." (2/2013)94 points James Suckling: "A layered young red with lots of black olives and berries on the nose. Full body, with velvety and chewy tannins. It all comes together at the end with a lovely sweet fruit. Try after 2017." (2/2013)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is more backward than I would have no ...Read More »

2010 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Administrator Christian Seeley thinks the 2010 is the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron he has ever made, equaling some of the estate’s colossal wines from vintages such as 1989 and 1990. It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January. Opaque purple, with loads of charcoal, licorice, incense and some exotic Asian spices along with abundant cassis liqueur, blackberry and hints of roasted coffee and spring flowers, it is full-bodied and opulent, with relatively high tannins, but they have sweetened up considerably and seem less aggr ...Read More »

Full body, with super velvety tannins. The purity of fruit is breathtaking. It goes on for minutes. This is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot. Try after 2020." (2/2013)98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Only 49% of the production made it into the 2010 Mouton Rothschild, which has a strikingly beautiful label by Jeffrey Koons. This is a truly great wine, with a very high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (94%) and the other 6% Merlot. At 13.9% natural al ...Read More »

92-93 points James Suckling: "I love the mid-palate to this young and attractive red, with silky tannins and alluring mineral, berry and stone character. Enchanting." (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." (5/2013)92 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, but supple along the edges, offering a packed core of cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruit.

2010 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "Beautiful clarity of fruit with raspberries and currants on the nose. Roses and other flowers too. It's almost hard to describe, but there's a real purity. Full body, with fabulous balance and depth. It has everything in the right place. Best ever? Try it in 2018." (2/2013)96 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the top Margaux wines, this is in top form, finely balanced and as elegant as it is powerful. It is darkly structured, dense yet balancing tannins with ripe black plums. It expresses the complexity of the vintage. A wine for serious, long-term aging."
