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 »

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

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 »

Muscular but toned and beautiful." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Pure Cabernet flavors are right at the front of this wine. It has fragrant fruitiness, with layers of black currant and fresh, juicy acidity on the palate. It's a bright wine, with just a touch of smoky wood flavors at the end."

It is firmly structured, with a dry core and medium-plus concentration. It promises a long life ahead." (4/2015) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Mouthfilling from the start, with lovely plum sauce, steeped fig and blackberry coulis flavors, lined with warm ganache notes and carried by ample but polished tannins. Features a tarry edge at the end, but maintains a rather polished feel overall.

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." (6/2003)91 points Wine Spectator: "Very muscular with currants, mineral and nutmeg character. Full-bodied and chewy, with a long and lively finish. Best after 2008. 29,165 cases made."

2009 Clarke (Baron Edmond de Rothschild), Listrac (1.5L)

Jancis Robinson: "Slightly peppery fruit and fragrant mid palate. Firm tannins but still pretty well balanced and showed well after a run of right-bank richness. Drink 2014-2023." (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. Drink it over the next 10-12 years." (2/2012) Wine Spectator: "This delivers a direct beam of red and black currant fruit, liberally laced with tobacco and roasted cedar notes that hang through the lightly fi ...Read More »

1993 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien (1.5L)

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.

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)

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. This is a sophi ...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 »

1990 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc(1.5L)

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 »

The wine has a structured, concentrated background that shows a new, more subtle direction in contrast with the winery's previously showy style." (4/2015) 96-97 points James Suckling: "I love the style of this Cos with so much Indian spices constituting the aromas and flavors here. Full body, fine tannins and an ultra-long finish. Excellent structure and length yet this maintains finesse."

2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "Deep and translucent to the core, the 2014 Pontet-Canet is one of the sexiest wines of the vintage. A host of violets, lavender, mint, spices, new leather and plums grace the palate in an utterly exquisite wine endowed with magnificent yet understated depth and crystalline purity. This is without question one of the highlights of the vintage. The 2014 isn't a big wine; rather it is a Pauillac built on a total sense of finesse. The 2014 was vinified in equal parts cement and oak, and is aging in a combination of 50% new oak, 35% amphora and 15% once used ...Read More »

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.

Freshly cut flowers, mint, dark berries and sage are some of the notes that are pushed forward in a sweet, unctuous St. Estèphe endowed with tons of class and personality. Raspberry jam and crushed flowers add further shades of nuance. The 2014 captures a deeply intriguing blend of lifted aromatics, super-ripe, fruit, pulsating energy and polished tannins.

(3/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Tour Saint Christophe 2014 has a very pure bouquet. There is some new oak to be subsumed, but there is plenty of fruit to support it. The palate is ripe and sensual on the entry with supple tannin, plush black cherry and blackberry fruit with a generous, modern-style opening with commendable length.

This has a little more Merlot in the blend but is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon as always. One of the best Armailhacs in a long time." (3/2015) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 d'Armailhac is absolutely delicious. Dark red cherry, plum, pomegranate, spice and floral notes are bold and exuberant in the glass.

(3/2003)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most unyielding wines in my tastings of the 2000s, the wine still has a very healthy, deep, dark ruby color, and earthy hints of herbs, licorice, and black currants. 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."

With its power leashed, this shows the stylish side of Saint-Julien, although it will certainly age for many years."

The wine has a dark ruby/purple color just beginning to lighten at the edge. Notes of charcoal, acacia flowers, black raspberries, and blue fruits are followed by a medium to full-bodied wine that builds incrementally on the palate. With its outstanding purity, richness, elegance and length, this is a beauty that has reached its window of maturity, where it should stay for another 15 or more years."

Ample acidity supports the black currant fruitiness, with a firm, impressive structure that promises good aging potential." (3/2015) 94-97 points Wine Spectator: "A light savory cassis bush hint marks the Petit Verdot in this blend, but this is quickly consumed by the Cabernet Sauvignon, with a core of well-endowed cassis and plum fruit harnessed by very long, supple tannins.

Lots of improvement here recently. This may be the best value play in the vintage."

92 points James Suckling: "This red shows some cassis, blueberries and floral notes on the nose. Some tar, too. Medium to full body, juicy tannins and a fruity finish. Enticing wine. Drink now or hold." (2/2015) 87-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red ruby with purple tinges. Sexy, floral aromas of raspberry, pepper, licorice and spices are vibrant and precise. Juicy, intense and very smooth, with wonderful energy and precision to the flavors of blackberry, licorice and spices. Very nicely balanced, persistent wine with fine tannins and very good grip--and no green or harsh edges. This excellent wine gets m ...Read More »

2014 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is a knockout. Excellent concentration of fruit and firm tannins. Very, very long. Fruity and intense. Same quality or better than 2010. Impressive." (3/2015) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Cantemerle is complete, beautiful and highly expressive. Tobacco, new leather, menthol, cloves, earthiness are all laced together, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that stands out most. The 2014 finishes with notable energy and an invigorating sense of freshness. I won't be surprised if the 2014 comes towards the higher end of this range once bottled.

2014 l'Evangile, Pomerol (1.5L) (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) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château L’Evangile 2014 is a blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc, the latter from re-planted vines that have come into the grand vin. It has a very refined bouquet, the Cabernet Franc lending a slight savory ...Read More »

2014 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "A fabulous young wine with superb depth of fruit and density that shows blueberries, blackberries, oyster shells and stones. Full-bodied, chewy yet with a laser-guided backbone of tannins. Goes on for minutes. Concentrated yet so fine and beautiful. The tannin content analysis is the same as 2009 and 2010 apparently from the winemakers, but the tannin quality is better. Amazing. This could be a remake of the 2010 but fresher." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has the finest, dusty tannins that float through the structure. Don't be deceived, though—this ri ...Read More »
