1996 Corbin Michotte, St-Emilion Top Pick!
1996 Corbin Michotte, St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine follows in the style of most Corbin-Michottes, even though the vintage had a tendency to produce tannic, hard wines. However, Corbin-Michotte seems to always aim for ripeness, and a seductive, forward fruity style with no hard edges. The dark ruby-colored 1996 is round and soft, with plenty of herb-tinged berry fruit intermixed with smoke and earth. (RP)" (4/1999)

Jancis Robinson: "60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc. Ripe, expressive, dry fruit. Tannins that sneak up on the finish. Lovely development of flavour, but the palate is a bit angular. Drink to 2018. (RH)" (6/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This appears to be an attractive, elegant, strong effort from Tertre-Daugay.

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 »

2014 Figeac, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Cabernet Sauvignon in this wine always gives it a distinctive, smoky profile. It also offers juicy acidity and black currant flavors that lie over a fine, dusty layer of tannins. The wine is so elegant and poised, with both structure and freshness." (4/2015) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and tight, with layers of well-focused boysenberry, cherry and cassis fruit, backed by a long, iron-edged finish. There's a whiff of tobacco in the background, too. Seriously grounded in terroir, this may take some time to unwind fully.

2005 Balestard La Tonnelle, St-Emilion

Jancis Robinson: "Fine perfume, becoming more meaty. Really moreish, dry and quite firm. Perhaps a little more structure than fruit." (11/2009) Wine & Spirits: "The aroma is complex and layered with rich cherries and smoky oak tones. This is a smooth-textured, traditional St-Emilion. A bit of bottling sulfur will dissipate as the wine ages, and the tannins will soften up for a steak."

A superstar of the vintage (not surprising given how successful the proprietors, the Decoster family, have been over the last decade or more), this 58-acre vineyard located near the village of St.-Etienne de Lisse enjoyed yields of 34 hectoliters per hectare.

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

Sweet black cherries, smoke, licorice and tar are some of the many notes that flesh out. The 2014 is quite dark and brooding in personality. I imagine the 2014 will drink beautifully for decades, although it is also going to need quite a bit of time to fully come together. There is so much to like here. Tiny yields in the Cabernet Franc resulted in a Beauséjour with more Merlot than is the norm. The 2014 is magnificen ...Read More »

2014 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Clos Fourtet is one of the highlights of the vintage. Super-finessed and gracious to the core, the 2014 presents a super-intriguing array of lavender, mint, violet, herb and blue stone fruits. Veins of cool, saline-infused minerals give the wine its energy and length. At its essence, the 2014 is a deceptively mid-weight, refined St.-Emilion built on weightless energy, tension and class. Hints of lavender, cloves, white pepper and savory herbs reappear on the finish, adding lift and precision. In 2014, Clos Fourtet is a true stand out, as well as ...Read More »

2014 Grand Mayne, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "A powerful, authoritative wine, the 2014 Grand Mayne possesses remarkable pedigree and class. Black cherries, smoke, licorice, tobacco and menthol all hit the palate in a vertical, structured St.-Emilion built for the cellar. Readers will have to be patient here. Tasted twice." (4/2015) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a structured wine, with solid, smoky tannins. It has a strong core of dryness, tough at the edges even if rich in the middle. Blackberries and dark plum skins dominate the fruit flavors. It is going to develop well, although slowly." (4/2015) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Châtea ...Read More »

2010 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion Top Pick!
2010 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion

96 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #2 on Top 100 Wines of 2013* This takes the power of the vintage and puts it in its pocket for later, preferring instead to let mouthwatering briar, loganberry, mulberry and blackberry fruit strut its way forward, enlivened with roasted wood spice and supported by suavely but thoroughly embedded iron-tinged structure. Should cruise for two decades. Best from 2016 through 2035." (3/2013) 94-95 points James Suckling: "This is tight and powerful. Solid frame of fruit and tannins. Curious about this. Like the 2009. This is 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. ...Read More »

2000 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing as I expected, but still several years away from full maturity, this extraordinarily flamboyant, full-bodied, opulent, sexy St. Emilion stood out for its backward structure and youthful personality. A dark plum/garnet hue is followed by a superb bouquet of roasted coffee, kirsch, blackberries, licorice, herbs, and forest floor. Full-bodied, dense, rich, and pure, it is a total hedonistic as well as intellectual turn-on. Enjoy it over the next decade. (RP)" (6/2010)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Moderately saturated ruby-red. Knockout superripe nose combines red- and blackcur ...Read More »

1998 Angélus, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A dazzling effort, the 1998 boasts an opaque purple color in addition to an exceptional bouquet of smoke, licorice, plums, black raspberries, and blackberries. As the wine sits in the glass, coffee and chocolate also emerge. Full-bodied, flamboyant, well-delineated, and beautifully balanced as well as layered, with well-integrated tannin in the powerful, rich finish, this 1998 will be at its best between 2003-2020." (4/2001)93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of coffee bean, chocolate and currant bush follow through to a full body, with soft and velvety tannins and a long and ...Read More »

2000 Angélus, St-Emilion

97 points Wine Spectator: "**Collectibles** Out of this world. Incredible aromas of crushed blackberries and cherries, with wet earth, mineral and mint. Full-bodied, with fantastically refined, silky tannins and a long, long finish. Terrific. Greatest Angelus I have ever tasted. Best after 2010." (3/2003)96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What can you say about Hubert de Bouard and Angelus? Each year they seem to turn out one great wine after another, and the 2000 showed its merit in two different tastings. A wine of great intensity, bluish/black, with a big, sweet kiss of graphite, crushed rocks, blueberry, spring ...Read More »

2012 Canon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A dense ruby/purple color is followed by notes of black raspberries, blueberries, crushed rocks and spring flowers. This medium to full-bodied, well-endowed, authoritative Canon reveals some serious tannin in the finish, so 4-5 years of cellaring will be needed after bottling. It should last 15-20 years." (4/2013) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. This dense, extracted wine has dark coffee and bitter chocolate flavors that are followed by wood and tannins. The fruit is still obscured, and may need many years for its dark character to emerge." (4/2013)93 points James Suckling: "A very silky and elegant ...Read More »

2005 Clos de Sarpe, St-Emilion
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Clos de Sarpe, St-Emilion (95RP, (89-92ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Clearly a wine made for future generations, Clos de Sarpe, with its tendency for tiny yields of under 25 hectoliters per hectare, has fashioned a 1,000 case blend of 85% Merlot and the rest old vine Cabernet Franc. Over recent vintages, this wine has been among the most concentrated and formidably tannic and backward made in Bordeaux. A claret for those with 19th century tastes, it offers good purity, ripe tannin, and an extraordinary display of concentration, extract, power, and tannic clout. The 2005 is a mammoth yet incredibly well-balanced St.-Emilion that represents an anomaly in modern day winemaking. It is a pleasure to see a proprietor push the envelope and create a wine that will be appreciated for 40-50 years. Classic sweet black cherry, licorice, roasted herb, and underbrush characteristics are present in this formidable, full-bodied, powerful wine. 95+ points. (RP)"
