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 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 »

2009 de Chantegrive, Graves

92 points James Suckling: "A solid red with ripe plum, cherry and vanilla character. Full and savory with round and ripe tannins and a long, intense finish. Approachable, but better in 2015." (7/2012) 89-91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Solidly packed tannins, very firm and structured, a feeling of considerable extract as well as a high toast content." (8/2010)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is another 'best ever' performance.

2014 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (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 »

2014 La Mission Haut-Brion Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (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 »

2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This large estate of 131 acres has been run brilliantly by a Belgian family, the Bonnies since their acquisition a number of years ago. The quality of the white and red have soared to exceptional heights, and this is certainly still one of the more realistically priced wines of Pessac-Lèognan and classified crus. The 2012 is a beauty, with a dense ruby/purple color, a fabulously plush, opulent texture and medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, spicy earth and blueberry. Quite rich, yet light on its feet, this is an absolutely textbook Pessac-Lèognan, w ...Read More »

2012 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classic 2012 Haut-Bailly is staggeringly great wine, with a stunning bouquet of lead pencil shavings, blueberries, black raspberries and blackcurrants and perhaps a touch of spring flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with an almost seamless integration of wood, alcohol and tannin. It is rich, concentrated, stunningly supple, pure and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. This wine defines what is meant by intensity of flavor, but it is light on its feet, à la great cuisine. It should be drinkable reasonably young, but age effortl ...Read More »

2013 Haut-Bergey Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale straw-yellow. Grapefruit, guava and minerals on the pretty nose. In the mouth, bright gooseberry, citrus and melon flavors are complicated by notes of gin and tequila. Finishes with sneaky concentration and noteworthy savory complexity." (6/2014)91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is soft and rounded, while also suggesting potential richness. The fruits come through slowly, supported by a strong mineral character. It needs time." (4/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This weighty white exhibits notes of honeyed melon, a hint of Grand Marnier orange zest, and delicate oak in a medium-bodied, impressively ...Read More »

2012 Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An inky, bluish-black color, this wine has deep black raspberry and blueberry notes mixed with charcoal, graphite and subtle smoke. Rich, full-bodied and silky textured, this complex, stunning Pessac-Léognan from this tiny jewel of a vineyard near Haut Brion is hitting all the high notes in 2012. It should drink well for 15-20. This is another bottled wine that dramatically out-performed its barrel sample."

2012 l'Avocat Blanc, Graves

L'Avocat is in the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation. At 300 feet above the Garrone River, the vineyards have stunning views of the lovely Côtes de Bordeaux. The vineyard's soil is loaded with different color gravel that imparts textbook minerality to both their whites and reds. L'Avocat's white is fresh and citrusy from the Sauvignon Blanc, and the addition of barrel-fermented Semillon rounds out the palate. This is a great all-around white for cocktailing or with salads, fis... Read More »

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Haut Bailly is exceptionally polished, creamy and textured from the very first taste. Black cherries, plums, smoke, tobacco and incense meld together in an ample, voluptuous wine built on pure texture. The high percentage of Merlot gives the 2014 relatively soft contours to balance the pure intensity of the Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a remarkably balanced, polished, young Haut-Bailly. The blend is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot. (AG)" (4/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample.

2012 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pape Clement is one of the stars of the vintage, which is not surprising given this estate's performances over the last 10-15 years. A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, it exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color along with a beautifully sweet, graphite-scented nose with hints of black currants, Asian plum sauce, soy and forest floor. Impressively built with medium to full-bodied flavors, it has more layers than many wines from this vintage, an appealing density and a velvety texture. Yields were a m ...Read More »

(7/2012)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational wine from this Pessac-Leognan estate, the 2009 possesses notes of charcoal, graphite, roasted herbs, truffles, spice box, and luxurious quantities of black currant and black cherry fruit.

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Smith Haut Lafitte is quite supple and textured in the glass, with lovely understated richness and impeccable overall balance. The least expressive of the 2014s I tasted at the estate, the Grand Vin is all finesse. Silky tannins and distinctly red-hued fruit are two of the signatures in an exceptionally polished wine endowed with fabulous overall balance. Sweet floral and mint notes add striking aromatic lift. Quite simply, although the 2014 is magnificent, it is also far from obvious in style. This is about as refined a 2014 as I came across du ...Read More »

2014 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Pape Clément is dark, sensual and alluring, with wonderful contrasts from riper and more savory elements that take shape in the glass. Super-ripe dark cherries, smoke, graphite, incense, tobacco and crushed rocks are pushed forward in a decidedly ripe, voluptuous Pessac endowed with notable personality. A second sample, tasted a day later, was much more mineral-driven and focused, with the fruit pushed to the background. Either way, the 2014 Pape Clément is one of the most overly modern, lush wines being made today in Pessac-Léognan. As such, it ...Read More »

2010 Le Bonnat, Graves

Wine & Spirits: "Round and warm with a Creole-like spice, this is a red-fruited wine with a green peppercorn and mint snap. The wine’s dry tannins need braised lamb to bring them into line." (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."

92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier is stunningly beautiful. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, spice and leather are all supported by veins of underlying acidity and minerality. Sweet floral and spice notes continue to open up over time, but it is the wine's imposing structure that stands out most. Readers will need to be especially patient here, as the domaine's wines are typically very slow to mature.

Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020+. P.S. Yields were a mere 28 hectoliters per hectare, which no doubt explains the wine’s stunning concentration." (6/2004)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Roasted berries, game, tobacco, leather and nuts on the rich, full-blow ...Read More »

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 »

1989 Olivier, Pessac-Léognan (Previously $60.00)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Olivier's 1989 is one of the best efforts in some time from this perennial underachiever. The bouquet is dominated by gobs of spicy, new oak, and a sweet, almost Beaujolais-like, red fruit character. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied, light, and soft. It is a pleasant, picnic-styled claret that requires consumption over the next 3-4 years." (2/1993) Wine Spectator: "I overrated this when it was first released. It's sleek and delicious though. Good ruby color. Fresh aromas of flowers and raspberries. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a chocolate, blackberry aftertaste.-- ...Read More »

93-94 points James Suckling: "A wine with dark berry and currant character that is juicy and rich. Full-bodied, round, velvety and savory. Second wine of La Mission." (4/2015) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This richly structured, full wine is soft and rounded, with black currant and intense acidity as the background. The tannins feel deceptively firm because of the fruit." (4/2015) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "right red plum, pomegranate, spices, graphite and smoke emerge from the 2014 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion, a bold, intense wine loaded with class and pedigree.

Very exotic and wild. Rich finish. Best after 2009." (3/2006)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opulent, accessible 2003 offers a dense plum/ruby-tinged color and a big, sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, smoked herbs, lead pencil, and subtle wood. It is a deep, fleshy, medium to full-bodied offering with low acidity, a plump, opulent texture, and a heady finish. Enjoy this beauty over the next 15+ years."

Full body, with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Really delicious young wine. Hard not to drink now, but better in 2016."

Full and juicy, with a tobacco and berry character that turns almost tea-like on the finish. This has medium tannins, and is just starting to come around. Drink now or hold."

94-97 points Wine Spectator: "A talc note gives way quickly to straw, verbena and shortbread flavors at the core, along with macadamia nut, lemon curd and brioche. Richly layered, with impressive range, this flattering style has nicely embedded acidity to carry it all. A gorgeous white in the making." (4/2014) 95-96 points James Suckling: "Why drink Silex from Dagueneau? This is really something exceptional with incredible density and power. Full-bodied, dry and mineral and lemon zest with fabulous length and beauty. This is definitely one to buy in 2013."
