2014 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has spice and fresh fruit aromas, which translate on the palate into intense blackberry and wood tastes. It is firmly structured, with a dry core and medium-plus concentration. It promises a long life ahead." (3/2015) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Mouthfilling from the start, with lovely plum sauce, steeped fig and blackberry coulis flavors, lined with warm ganache notes and carried by ample but polished tannins. Features a tarry edge at the end, but maintains a rather polished feel overall. A lovely wine, once again.

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 »

2014 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Calon Ségur is silky, polished and exceptionally beautiful. Freshly cut flowers, mint, dark berries and sage are some of the notes that are pushed forward in a sweet, unctuous St. Estèphe endowed with tons of class and personality. Raspberry jam and crushed flowers add further shades of nuance. The 2014 captures a deeply intriguing blend of lifted aromatics, super-ripe, fruit, pulsating energy and polished tannins. Persistent and impeccably balanced throughout, the 2014 Calon Ségur is without question one of the wines of the vintage. The refined ...Read More »

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

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

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. This is a very successful wine, with wood and fruit notes that combine seamlessly ...Read More »

2014 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "Vibrant and fruity with currant, blueberry and spice character. Full yet tight with tension and brightness. Very velvety tannins. Sexy already." (3/2015) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine boasts great structure, with a dark color and vibrant aromatics from the high proportion of Petit Verdot. It offers dusty tannins partnered with ample acidity, providing great freshness through the finish."

2014 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Rauzan-Ségla is shaping up to be a real jewel of a wine. Super-polished and silky throughout, the 2014 is all about nuance. Red cherry, red currant and mint open up in a translucent, beautifully delineated wine. Ferrous and savory notes follow as the wine blossoms in the glass, revealing its depth and resonance. All the elements fall into place in a gracious wine that is at once classically austere, yet also supple and highly expressive, with virtually no sensation of tannin and terrific overall balance.

2009 Malartic-Lagravière Pessac-Léognan

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Almost sweet in its richness, this is a deliciously fruity wine. The structure and tannins are almost buried among all of the velvety fruits, ripe berry flavors and layered wood notes. That said, it still has complexity and richness that promise aging, with the final acidity giving some brightness." (9/2012)93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries, spices and bark follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long silky textured finish. Very fine indeed. Best ever from here. Try it in 2017." (2/2012)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Probably the best wine that has come from this estate, along wit ...Read More »

2014 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is tight and compacted with beautiful fruit on the center palate. Full body, velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Very intense." (3/2015) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a powerful, dry wine showing solid tannins, powered by a background of perfumed black currant flavors. A beautiful balance of fruit and structure will develop down the line." (4/2015) 89-92 points Wine Spectator: "The cassis and black cherry fruit glides along here, with hints of warm fruitcake and licorice. Tarry accents emerge at the very end, giving this some depth and grip. This may fill out a bit more. ...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 »

2012 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque bluish-purple 2012 Smith Haut Lafite offers up notes of licorice, graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, stunningly ripe, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is another sensational effort from the Cathiards that is perfectly balanced, complex, super-rich and pure. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. This is another great turn-around effort that dated from the acquisition of this once moribund estate in 1990, by Daniel and Florence Cathiard. They continue to do an exemplary job with both white a ...Read More »

2012 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "This is amazing for the second wine with incredible white truffle, stone and currant character. Purity of fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, silky and refined. Fantastic length. Better in 2018 but almost impossible to resist now. Incredible." (2/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another brilliant example from administrator Thomas Duroux and his team, the intense second wine, Palmer’s 2012 Alter Ego (51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot), offers up plenty of blackberry and crème de cassis notes along with some spring flowers, licorice and subtle background oak.

2001 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien

92 points Wine Spectator: "Very perfumed with blackberries, currants and vanilla. Full bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. This is tight and racy. Very fine. Best after 2008." (3/2004) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Clos du Marquis tastes like a classified growth Bordeaux. Deep ruby/purple-colored, it is more open-knit and forward than its bigger sibling, exhibiting lovely cassis fruit intermixed with underbrush, earth, and subtle background oak. Enjoy this approachable 2001 over the next 10-14 years." (6/2004) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good ruby-red color. Currant, tobacco, minerals, graphite and sexy oak on the nose.

2010 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien

94 points James Suckling: "I love the aromas of minerals, flowers, blackberries and blueberries. Full body with a fabulous texture of polished and integrated tannins. It goes on for minutes. Spicy, subtle fruit and a long and marvelous finish. Currant bush undertones. A whole and beautiful wine." (2/2013)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "No longer a second wine of Ducru-Beaucaillou, but a wine from its own separate vineyard, Croix de Beaucaillou is impressive. Firm while also rich, it is firmly tannic, superripe and packed with great dark plum and berry fruits. Fruit and structure well balanced together."

2011 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion (Previously $80)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Clos Fourtet is a continuing success. This 2011 is both rich and seriously structured. Ripe, with a mineral character, it starts firm and then shows generous blackberry fruits. Still young, it should not be drunk before 2018." (5/2014)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is another brilliant offering from Philippe Cuvelier, who has totally revolutionized the quality of this famous estate. The 2011 Clos Fourtet exhibits a dense blue/purple color as well as beautiful notes of creme de cassis, blueberries and raspberries, a complete as well as layered mid-palate, sweet tannin, good acidity ...Read More »

2011 Beychevelle, St-Julien

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This impressive wine follows a straight line of structure, acidity, firm tannins and dark black fruits. The combination is a wine with depth, ripeness and an edge of austerity that demands aging. Drink from 2018." (2/2014)91 points Wine Spectator: "A textbook St.-Julien, offering tightly layered dark plum, currant and blackberry fruit, with a strong graphite spine and dark tar and mouthwatering pastis notes on the finish. A well-built, confident wine. Best from 2017 through 2027." (3/2014)90 points James Suckling: "An attractive 2011 with lots of blackberry, hazelnut and walnut character.

2014 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "Exuberant and explosive, the 2014 Canon La Gaffelière is quite forward in style, yet all the elements seem to come together. An open, exotic bouquet melds into sweet red cherries, plums, spices and dried rose petals. The high percentage of Cabernet Franc gives the wine considerable aromatic lift and tons of personality. Floral and savory Franc notes abound on the super, long finish. The 2014 is 55% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Finely crafted wine. Best after 2000." (1/2000) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is the first vintage the vinification was controlled by Gerard Perse and his two consultants, Dr. Alain Raynaud and Michel Rolland. Dense ruby/purple-colored, with copious quantities of black raspberry and cherry fruit intermixed with spicy oak, this deep, rich, medium to full-bodied 1997 possesses sweet tannin, low acidity, excellent length, a ...Read More »

2004 Suduiraut, Sauternes (Previously $70.00)

95 points Wine & Spirits: "Suduiraut has a rather delicate floral aroma for a wine that's luminous gold. Botrytis flavors kick in on the palate and the wine explodes. What's left is ethereal: scents of the forest, of beeswax, ginger and Mandarin orange marmalade, a range of honeyed flavors that never seems to stop. A reset for your taste receptors, this is mood-altering wine. Absolutely lovely." (10/2007)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Like so many vintages of Suduiraut, this wine shows richness, even in the relatively delicate 2004. Ripe, sweet fruit flavors —dates, figs, pineapples and tangerines—dominate. This ...Read More »

(4/2012) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Aromatic herbs, red fruits and a touch of game on the nose, nicely lifted by sweet spice and violet notes. Bright and fresh in the mouth, with the cassis and herb flavors nicely supported by lively acidity and smooth tannins. Finishes with a coffee note."

It has enough weight and structure in its strongly tannic background to give great promise for the future, though it is so balanced now." (4/2015) 93-94 points James Suckling: "A firm and austere young red now but there's serious fruit and mineral character underneath. Full body, chewy tannins and a long finish." (3/2015) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Well-packed, with plum cake, bramble, blueberry patch and anise notes, all allied to a graphite edge on the finish. Racy acidity underscores everything.

Black cherries, smoke, new leather, cloves and cedar blossom in the glass as this textured, voluptuous St.-Emilion shows its dark, enticing personality. The flavors are distinctly sepia-toned in a muscular, powerful Pavie Macquin that will drink well for several decades. Savory herbs, crushed flowers, mint and smoke blossom on the dense, explosive finish. The blend is 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon.

It is rich, concentrated, stunningly supple, pure and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on.

(4/2013)92 points James Suckling: "On the nose and palate this red suggests red and black plums with cedar notes and hints of cloves. Full body, firm tannins, fresh acidity and an intense finish. Minerally, too. Polished tannins. Drink in 2020."

It is far too coy to say "somewhere in the middle", yet the seamless fit of fine pieces so integral to good Margaux wines and the sweet cherry fruit that lies at the heart of this attractive bottling have clearly produced a wine that is both rich and even slightly succulent."

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."

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 »

2012 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the stars of the vintage, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of red and black currants, graphite, subtle flowers and well-integrated, toasty oak. Impressively built rich and medium to full-bodied without losing the quintessential elegance and finesse for which this famous estate is renowned, the 2012 Domaine de Chevalier is filled with purity, equilibrium and balance. The tannins are sweet enough that this wine should be accessible when released, and will last for 15-20 years. Is this a modern day clone of their brillia ...Read More »

1995 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 is a silky, supple, charming, forthcoming wine that is well above its cru bourgeois classification. The color is a healthy saturated deep ruby/purple, and the wine offers up gobs of jammy black fruits intermixed with subtle herbs, spice, and toast. In the mouth, the wine displays excellent richness, a layered, medium-bodied personality, well-disguised tannin and acidity, and a hedonistic mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. A sleeper of the vintage." (2/1998) Wine Spectator: "Refined, pretty '95. Currants, blackberries and green tobacco aromas. Medium-bodied ...Read More »

2009 Cambon La Pelouse, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

92 points James Suckling: "I like the depth of fruit and grip to this, with a lovely chocolate and berry character. Medium-to-full body with layers of fruit. Very long and pretty." (5/2013)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another of my favorite estates from the southern part of the Medoc, Macau, this Haut-Medoc cru bourgeois is a blend of 54% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. The alcohol was 14% and the wine bottled unfined and unfiltered by its consulting oenologist, the brilliant Claude Gros. Wonderfully dark ruby/purple in color, with loads of sweet berry fruit as well as hints of licorice and ...Read More »

2008 Rieussec, Sauternes

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. The Chateau Rieussec 2008 should become an excellent Sauternes for the vintage. It has a floral bouquet with peach, tinned apricot and a touch of marmalade, all with fine delineation, and touches of lemon curd developing with aeration. The palate is mellifluous on the entry, with great depth and a luscious, vanillary note with hints of orange peel, marmalade and quince towards the long finish. Excellent. (NM)" (2/2012)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich rather than sweet, this is stuffed full of botrytis. The wine is powered through with this dust ...Read More »

1989 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 d'Angludet is one of this property's best wines since their excellent 1983. It does not, however, appear to have the stuffing necessary to surpass that wine. It is fat, plump, intensely fruity with a good ruby color, supple texture, high alcohol, and soft tannins." (2/1993) Wine Spectator: "Ready to drink. Medium-ruby color and enticing aromas of blackberries and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with milk chocolate and coffee flavors and soft texture." (5/1999)

A fabulous year for merlot and the right bank Bordeaux. This wine is silky smooth with plenty of stuffing for the cellar. And it is priced fairly.

2003 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

97 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Dark gold in color already, with intense aromas of dried apricots, citrus, honey and maple syrup with lots of spice. Full-bodied, with lovely sweetness and a long, creamy peach tart, tobacco, honey aftertaste. This is pure botrytis. Best ever from here. Has an incredible finish. Best after 2010." (3/2006)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Enticing bright yellow-gold color. Subdued but very pure aromas of orange peel, apricot, honey and spices. Supersweet, fat and spicy; wonderfully round, chewy and unctuous. As thick and '03-like as this is, it remains fresh and lively ...Read More »
