2014 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This has fascinating aromas already with blackcurrants and cassis. Hints of spices. It’s full-bodied with ultra-fine tannins and a long, focused finish. 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." (4/2015) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Offers lovely weight and feel, with a big core of plum, blackberry and black currant fruit that manages to show re ...Read More »

2014 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a highly aromatic wine, with a superbly dense structure and firm, brooding tanning. On top of the drying tannins are finely polished fruit, followed by a fresh, vibrant finish. Overall, it boasts a great combination of structure and fruit." (4/2015) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "This captures the pure, distilled essence of Cabernet Sauvignon, with a racy core of red and black currant fruit that almost struts alone, but there's ample roasted apple wood and iron deeply buried in the background, which should emerge with time. The finish has terrific delineation, wit ...Read More »

2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (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 »

2014 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Here is a ripe and smoky wine, with a firm, tannic structure and a sense of the deep gravel terroir. The high proportion of Merlot in the blend has given richness to the wine, with a big, fat texture on the finish." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "This is very solid and muscular with dark berries and blueberries. More merlot than normal but shows a serious structure that underlines the excellence of the cabernet. Small production of cabernet here with 45% merlot in the blend." (3/2015) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "This has yet to soak up its oak and remains a bit raw, but the juniper and alder ...Read More »

2014 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (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 »

2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) New!
2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Rock-solid, with a gutsy core of plum, black currant, steeped fig and melted licorice snap, all carried by a gorgeous, charcoal-edged spine. Long, and loaded with fruit and grip. As solid as they come." (4/2015) 92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "Vibrant and pulsating in the glass, the 2014 Grand Puy Lacoste impresses for its superb overall balance. The flavors are bright and beautifully expressive, with sweet floral notes woven throughout that give the wine much of its nuance, while the seamless, silky tannins speak to finesse. Even with all of its explosive energy, the 2014 is not an obvi ...Read More »

2010 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

98 points James Suckling: "A wine with great beauty and finesse. Such elegance and ethereal quality for this estate. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a juicy delicious finish. 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. Jean-Charles Cazes, who took over for his father a number of years ago, has produced a magnificent wine with the classic creme de cassis note intermixed with ...Read More »

2014 d'Armailhac, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "Very minerally, silky and refined with a full body, firm tannins and currants, stones and citrus. Racy and fine. 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. This is an especially extroverted, silky d'Armailhac long on class, finesse and resonance. All the elements are in the right place. Ripe, silky tannins add to an overa ...Read More »

2014 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a huge wine. Rich, powerful and dense, yet remarkably precise, the 2014 boasts extraordinary density and fabulous balance. Scents of black fruits, graphite, smoke, tobacco, grilled herbs and incense meld into a huge core of fruit. Hints of black cherry jam, wild flowers and mint add an attractive aromatic top register on the close. Explosive and virile in style, the 2014 appears to have the pedigree to age well for several decades. It is without question one of the wines of the year. The blend is 65% Cab ...Read More »

2014 Echo de Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

89-92 points Wine Spectator: "This packs solid dark currant, fig and blackberry fruit, with notes of charcoal and loam, but stays fleshy overall, revealing ample length and definition on the finish." (4/2015) 89-91 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Echo de Lynch-Bages is a juicy, forward wine that will deliver considerable pleasure pretty much upon release. Distinctly Cabernet-inflected notes take center stage, with savory/floral overtones that add nuance. The tannins are a bit rough around the edges today, even though the fruit is quite voluptuous. In 2014, the Echo is 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot, the hig ...Read More »

2009 Reserve de la Comtesse Lalande, Pauillac Top Pick!
2009 Reserve de la Comtesse Lalande, Pauillac

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, the second wine, the 2009 Reserve de la Comtesse, exhibits notes of forest floor, white chocolate, licorice, black currants and vanillin-infused black cherries. It possesses a sweet, round, generous style given its high glycerin. Both the Reserve de la Comtesse and Pichon Lalande have about 13% alcohol, slightly lower than most Pauillacs achieved in 2009. Drink it over the next 10 years." (2/2012)91 points Wine Spectator: "Bright and sappy, with kirsch and damson plum notes streaking along, followe ...Read More »

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (95JS, 95RP, 94WE, 93ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " Made from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, this spectacular 2003 hits all the sweet spots on the palate. A glorious bouquet of cedarwood, jammy black currants, cherries, licorice and truffle is followed by a dense, opulently textured, full-bodied wine with terrific purity and freshness as well as deep, velvety textured tannins.

2008 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

Jancis Robinson: "Deep crimson with a purple tinge. The only blend that might change very slightly - maybe add a little bit more press wine or something. Really rather seductive nose. You could almost drink this now! Very polished and rich and zesty. Pretty clever. Hint of malt that softens it. Then scrunched up on the finish. Clean and neat. Lots of Merlot." (5/2009) K&L Notes: This is Château Latour's third wine, created by the estate in 1973 from the finished wine that is still good, but that doesn't fit the Les Forts de Latour (Latour's second label) profile. It was only produced ... Read More »

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. With so much spicy fruit, intensely ripe blackberry flavors and solid tannins, all the elements of excellence are here, and powered by a firm structure. This wine has weight and a fine Cabernet concentration." (4/2013)93 points James Suckling: "This is very muscular with blackcurrant, blueberry and mineral character. Full and tight now but this shows a serious backbone of tannins and length. Try in 2018."

2014 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Continuing its progress to greater and greater quality, this estate has produced a concentrated wine with great structure. The old Merlot vines yield a darkly tannic background that lies over the brilliant black-currant fruits." (4/2015) 91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, new leather and licorice flesh out in the 2014 Clerc Milon. Deep and pliant to the core, the 2014 boasts notable resonance from start to finish.

2014 Le Petit Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

Gorgeous. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest is Merlot. Not really a second wine of Mouton. Excellent." (3/2015) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "This has a lightly dusty frame, but is plump overall, with delightful plum, raspberry and red currant fruit at the core. Singed alder and vanilla notes are subtle and nicely integrated, with a very elegant feel through the finish. Tasted non-blind."

2005 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft. Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, balanced by unrelenting purity of fruit that somehow manages to anesthetize the monstrous tannin, to soften the extremely dry, mineral-bound finish into a caress. The wine may be bombastic, but it's also succulent and as sweet as a ripe black raspberry. It's easy to imagine this wine 50 years from now, in impeccable condition."

Drink after 2016." (8/2012) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Packed with Cabernet blackcurrant flavors, very ripe and laden with blackcurrants. Great final freshness." (8/2010)92 points Wine Spectator: "An amped-up style, with showy aromatics of toasty spice and wood, but there's good solid density to the blackberry, black currant and fig fruit, and the toast melds into a more honest graphite edge through the finish. A solid expression of the modern style. Best f ...Read More »

Full body, very polished silky tannins and a chewy finish. Lots of richness for the vintage. Persistent palate. This was aged 35% in cement eggs for 12 months. Better in 2018." (2/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This impeccably run, biodynamically farmed estate of Alfred Tesseron goes from strength to strength.

Dusty tannins are integrated with juicy fruits seamlessly. The purest fruit flavors are allied to linear tannins in a precise yet generous way. The wine is evolving beautifully, but do not drink before 2020." (5/2014)95 points James Suckling: "A wine with lots of ripe berries, verging on dried fruits.

1996 Pontet-Canet Pauillac

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was shocked by how backward the 1996 Pontet-Canet was on the three occasions I tasted it in January. This wine possesses superb potential, but it appears a decade's worth of patience will be necessary. The color is a saturated dark purple. With coaxing, the wine offers aromas of black currant jam intertwined with minerals, sweet oak, and spice. A full-bodied wine, it possesses layered, concentrated sweet fruit, with an elevated level of ripe tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2035.

At this fabulous terroir just south of Mouton-Rothschild, Tesseron has made major investments, and instituted incredibly severe selections in both the vineyard and winery. The result is a succession of extraordinary wines.

This shows so much ripe fruit and berry character with just the right hint of lead pencil and spice. Full-bodied and very chewy. Big and powerful. Beautiful wine. Superb. Best after 2012." (3/2006)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A brilliant effort, this 2003 displays a vigorous, intact, deep blue/purple color as well as notes of ...Read More »

2012 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2012 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Comprised of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a densely ripe wine, full of black fruits, smoky wood and generous tannins. Given its structure, the wine will obviously age well, even if it is drinkable in the medium term." (4/2013)94 points James Suckling: "A pretty core of ripe-berry, currant and mineral character to this red with a full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish to add. Creamy texture. Better in 2017." (2/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the big sibling, the 2012 Pichon Baron (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) probably has the most saturated purple color of the Pauillacs ...Read More »

2013 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a powerful and dense wine, with ripe and rich berry fruit notes. It’s balanced, showing strong tannins in harmony with concentrated fruit. It is rich, generous in texture and sure to age well." (4/2014) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Shows solid flesh from the start, with plum paste notes that belie the vintage, bolstered by dark currant, crushed cherry and raspberry coulis flavors. Offers lots of anise and juniper hints through the finish, accented by an echo of licorice snap. Delivers impressive range and depth. Pure. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Fran ...Read More »

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 »

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 »

2002 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (Previously $700.00)

95 points Wine Spectator: "(Collectibles) Bubbling over with crushed berries, currants and spices, with tobacco notes. Beautiful. Full-bodied, with gorgeously velvety tannins and a long finish of pretty fruit. This is a racy yet elegant Lafite. Classy. Best after 2010." (3/2005)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage, this is classic Lafite that reminded me somewhat of the 1976, although the vintage conditions were completely different. This is a medium-weight, quintessentially elegant style of Lafite with notes of lead pencil shavings/graphite along with black ...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 »

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 »

1989 Haut-Bages-Averous, Pauillac

90 points Wine Spectator: "Shows excellent harmony, with powerful tar, blackberry and fruit aromas and a super-rich palate. The ample tannins are fully integrated, giving it excellent balance." (3/1992) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 is an excellent second wine, displaying rich cassis fruit, good, spicy, new oak, and a delicious, medium to full-bodied, corpulent texture." (2/1993) K&L Notes: This is the second label (renamed Echo de Lynch-Bages in 2008) of Lynch-Bages, a highly regarded fifth growth from Pauillac. The second wine displays the same exceptional winemaking as its "big brother," but is sourced from young... Read More »

2005 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, Pauillac

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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. (RP)" (4/2008)93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark in color, almost black, with beautiful aromas of spices, blackberry and milk chocol ...Read More »

2008 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A candidate for the wine of the vintage, Pontet Canet’s 2008 boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious aromas of sweet blueberries, blackberries and black currant fruit intertwined with lead pencil shavings, subtle barbecue smoke and a hint of forest floor. Full-bodied, with fabulous richness, texture and tremendous freshness, this first-growth-like effort is more developed than the uber-powerful 2010. Give it 5-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. Bravo!" (5/2011)95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smooth, with dense tannins hidden behind the ripe, pur ...Read More »
