2013 Haut Rian Blanc, Bordeaux

Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc blend from enologist Michel Dietrich, southeast of Bordeaux. According to Matt Kramer: "This delightful dry white wine is meant to be drunk young, cool and fresh. It delivers striking scents of lime and lemon rind, whiffs of honeydew and even a hint of seashells. And no taste of oak to be found, just “pure play” dry white. This wine could easily become your house white- it’s that good."

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 »

2014 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a finely fruity wine—all tangy acidity, crisp lemon and stone fruit. The wood aging shows in the notes of toast and burnt spice. It should all integrate well as it develops into a seriously ageworthy wine."

Orange peel, mint and white flowers lead to more tropical-leaning fruits, along with a host of honey, melon and quince overtones.

89-92 points Wine Spectator: "No tasting note given." (4/2015) K&L Notes: In 2011, the esteemed Margaux winery Château Cantenac Brown introduced their first white wine. Called AltO de Cantenac Brown, the wine is comprised of Sauvignon Blanc (90%) and Semillon grown in a cool vineyard with clay and calcareous soil. This displays the racy aromatics of a Sancerre Blanc, with a touch of Bordeaux opulence thanks to 100% fermentation and aging in one-year-old barrels.

"With a lengthy history comes a list of accomplishments and triumphs. Such is the case for Chateau Suduiraut, which dates to the seventeenth century. Not only did Suduiraut achieve First Growth status in the classification of 1855, they also were one of the pioneers in grafting vines onto American rootstock to thwart the scourge of Phylloxera. For this, credit goes to Emile Petit de Forest, who owned and oversaw the Suduiraut at the end of the nineteenth century.

1997 Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes (1.5L)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Has botrytis character and intense aromas of honey, spice, almond and dried apricot. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a long, thick finish. Best after 2004. (JS)" (1/2000) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Restrained aromas of orange peel, lime, pineapple and spicy oak. Cooler flavors of spice, peach and dried fruits. Very good but not outstanding intensity and concentration. But very well balanced, and persistent on the finish. Honey and marzipan notes give the back end a lovely sweetness. (ST)" (7/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Oaky still with a kirsch overlay yet great tension too. This wine is absolutely massive ...Read More »

2013 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "A white with a fabulous minerality and citrus character as well as hints of papaya and other tropical fruits. Full body with a wonderful backbone and length. Focused and powerful." (4/2014) 93-96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, pale yellow-gold. Subtly complex aromas of white stone fruits, lime, nut oil, nutmeg, menthol and bitter grapefruit. A huge, deep wine with laser-like acidity lifting the highly concentrated tropical fruit, white peach, spice and herb flavors. As youthfully chewy, thick and palate-staining as this is, it's also wonderfully light on its feet, showing uncommon ...Read More »

2014 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "There are strong wood flavors in this wine, but there's also ripe fruit and ample acidity. It is an impressive wine that is balanced, rich and likely to age well." (3/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "Beautiful intensity of sliced limes, slates, stones and citrus. This is a serious white as always." (3/2015) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Malartic-Lagravière Blanc 2014 is a tentative blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon that represents around half of the total crop.

2014 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a gorgeous wine, so rich and generous. At the same time, it has a direct purity of fruitiness, with a tense structure and crisp apple and lemon notes that give a nervous edge to the wine. It will be a wine to age for a seriously long time." (4/2015) 94-97 points Wine Spectator: "Tangerine, makrut lime and quinine notes are tightly coiled, with a long lemon shortbread note coursing through the finish. Offers a lovely kiwifruit core, with green plum notes skittering through the background. Despite the heft, this really lingers thanks to well-embedded acidity. Taste ...Read More »
