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 »

2011 Domaine du Bouscat "La Gargone" Bordeaux Supérieur (Previously $22)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Cuvee La Gargone (14% alcohol) exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, abundant notes of sweet blueberries and black raspberries and significant density and richness. A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for 3-5 years." (4/2014) James Suckling: "This shows lots of excellent fruit, with spices, chikies and chocolate. Full and dense. Fruity finish. Drink in 2016." (2/2014)

2012 Cartier, St-Emilion (Previously $20)

What a delicious wine. Soft and supple with tons of spicy fruit on the nose and palate. Semi-new wave, but fine structure and balance. Excellent value. Another find on our 2012 Bordeaux buy trip. Organically cultivated. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Co-Owner and Bordeaux Buyer)

1999 Fugue de Nenin, Pomerol Top Pick!
1999 Fugue de Nenin, Pomerol

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The palate is quite sweet with a note of fig and raisin. Firm, well-integrated tannins with a rich black, liquorice finish. Very good for a second wine....Tasted July 2004. (NM-Wine Journal)" 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. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux Buyer)

2011 Gigault "Cuvée 'Viva" Premières Côtes de Blaye (Previously $15)

91 points James Suckling: "A red with plum and berry character, plus lots of hazelnut. Chalky. Full body with chewy tannins and a fresh finish. This is always excellent. Drink in 2015." (2/2014) Wine Spectator: "Bouncy blueberry and cherry fruit flavors are backed by toasted spice. Open knit and fresh." (4/2012) K&L Notes: One of our favorites from the value regions on the right bank. Cotes de Blaye region now referred to as Cotes de Bordeaux. This wine is 90% Merlot and has a lot of blackberry fruit flavors. Decant one hour and serve with a pot roast.

1986 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

90 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant and well-defined Pauillac with layers of vanilla, cedar, plum and currant flavors wrapped in thick tannins that clamp down on the finish. Pretty aftertaste of black cherry and spice. Almost drinkable now." (8/1989) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still youthful yet evolving at a glacial pace, the plum/ruby-colored 1986 has excellent depth, plenty of richness, some spicy wood, as well as a classy bouquet of herbaceous black currants and cedar. The wine is still revealing tannin, but it is not intrusive. (RP)" (1/2003) K&L Notes: 1986 was an excellent Left Bank vintage with perfect October weat... Read More »

2011 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Previously $150)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a solid, concentrated wine from a reliable chateau. It has weight and power, with rich black fruits balanced with fresh acidity. Touches of bitter extraction and wood aging are likely to integrate as the wine ages. It should develop into an impressive and powerful wine. Drink from 2018." (5/2014)93 points James Suckling: "A 2011 with blackberry, dark-chocolate and smoked-meat character. Full body, silky tannins and a long, intense finish. All about balance and polish. Very fine. Needs three to four years to soften. Try in 2017." (2/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "Warm savory and tob ...Read More »

1991 Latour, Pauillac (Previously $700)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby color. Decadent aromas of meat, figs and ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with a very good, compacted, fruity structure and a long, long, ripe fruit and earth finish. This is a seriously good bottle. Great value. Love it.--Latour vertical. Best after 2005." (8/2000) Jancis Robinson: "The 1991 frost-shrunk Bordeaux vintage was so small that it is quite rare to taste a 1991 nowadays. Still quite purple. Engerer reminded us that their best vineyards were not in fact badly affected but this wine still tasted extremely youthful and unformed. Very concentrated and dense - miner ...Read More »

2006 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (Previously $250) Top Pick!
2006 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (Previously $250)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant second wine, the 2006 Les Forts de Latour, a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, possesses a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful bouquet of asphalt, cassis, cedar, truffles, and earth, and a full-bodied, dense, beautiful style that is similar to a 1996 Pauillac. It will age effortlessly for 15 years. Latour's brilliant manager, Frederic Engerer, has purchased 15 hectares of old vine Grenache and Syrah in the Cotes du Rhone region, the Drome, at a cool-climate elevation. I can't wait to see the first vintage from this Cotes du ...Read More »

1982 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion (Previously $210)

Jancis Robinson: "Very dark crimson. Bit fragile. Very, very dry and dusty." (7/2002) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full, dark red, with an amber rim. Rather syrupy aromas of coffee, mocha and alcohol. Dense and thick but somewhat weedy; fairly penetrating and concentrated, but beginning to lose its fruit...." (7/2002)

1989 Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol (Previously $120)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has reached full maturity very quickly. The wine shows some amber at the edge, with a sweet nose of roasted coffee intermixed with caramel, mocha, black cherry, and tobacco. The wine is medium-bodied, beautifully sweet and fleshy on the attack, but then narrows out ever so slightly in the mouth. There remains some tannin to be resolved. Anticipated maturity: Now-2014.Last tasted, 12/02." (1/2003) Wine Spectator: "Earthy and decadent. Dark ruby-garnet. Aromas of black olives, berries and meat. Full-bodied, chewy, with lots of tannins and a sweet fruit and earth af ...Read More »

1986 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Previously $200)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still backward (frustratingly so), this wine shows a very dark ruby color with a hint of pink at the rim. The aromatics are beginning to emerge from just pure fruit-driven notes to secondary characteristics. Sweet earth, truffle, black currant, underbrush, and licorice emerge with coaxing. In the mouth, the wine is powerful, dense, with high tannin., impressive concentration, and a formidable, sort of old-style personality. The best 1986 Medocs are terrific wines, but have never been wines that show a lot of charm. Like so many of its siblings from the M ...Read More »

1970 Rieussec, Sauternes (low neck) (Previously $160)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A little heavier to taste and a bit less elegant than the 1971, the 1970 is a corpulent, rich, sweet mouthful of viscous, chewy Sauternes. The moderately amber/gold color is a sign of approaching maturity, but this wine has the acidity and overall balance to drink nicely for at least another decade. (1998)" K&L Notes: *** From Michael Broadbent: "Surprisingly pale, sweet, spearmint nose, medium sweetness and body, nice rich flavour, good acidity." Neil Martin: "A medium-bodied palate, good acidity, a little ephemeral and very floral. Quite sharp but good delineation.... Read More »

1991 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Previously $220)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cos d'Estournel's 1991 (about 50% of the harvest was declassified) is one of the wines to buy given its relatively low price and fine quality. It displays a dark ruby color, and a big, rich nose of cassis fruit married intelligently with spicy new oak. Offering surprising fatness and fleshiness, fine length, and a sweet, creamy texture, it should drink well for at least a decade." (2/1994) Wine Spectator: "One of the best wines of the vintage. Well focused, with lots of chunky fruit. The vanilla, tobacco and chocolate flavors go on and on." (3/1994)

1983 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (Previously $90)

This property is on the border of St-Julien and the Haut-Médoc, quite close to Beychevelle and Branaire-Ducru. This Pauillac-like property is a K&L favorite, known among Bordeaux enthusiasts as a great value producer that consistently "turns out wines that are often very close to classified-growth quality," to quote Robert Parker.

2007 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (Previously $50)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is a lot of oak and perhaps too much extraction in a vintage that offered charm rather than power in this otherwise generous, structured, inky/ruby-colored wine with lots of depth. The 2007 gives a mixed message of whether it will pull itself together, or become ragged and disjointed. Time will tell. (RP) (88+ points)" (4/2010)
