2010 Lestruelle, Médoc (Previously $15) Top Pick!
2010 Lestruelle, Médoc (Previously $15)

Jancis Robinson: "Pleasant floral bouquet, mingled with red cherries, red currants, and sweet spices. Firm but ripe tannins giving illusion of sweetness. Beautifully balanced. Not short of finesse at all." (9/2012) Wine Enthusiast: "This is a mint- and licorice-flavored wine, with its wood aging prominent at this stage. Full bodied, rich and concentrated, it shows strong signs of extraction that give it a bitter finish. Age this tannic wine for 2-3 years or more." (3/2013) Wine Spectator: "Primal and direct, with blueberry and loganberry notes backed by a charcoal edge which lingers through the finish. Shows l ...Read More »

2011 Domaine du Bouscat "La Gargone" Bordeaux Supérieur (Previously $22)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Cuvee La Gargone (14% alcohol) exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, abundant notes of sweet blueberries and black raspberries and significant density and richness. A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for 3-5 years." (4/2014) James Suckling: "This shows lots of excellent fruit, with spices, chikies and chocolate. Full and dense. Fruity finish. Drink in 2016." (2/2014)

2005 Valandraud, St-Emilion (Previously $400)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of the most riveting examples of Valandraud Jean-Luc Thunevin has made over the last fifteen years. Thunevin and his partner, Murielle Andraud (who has much of the responsibility for their brilliant Margaux, Marojallia), exhibit impeccable attention to detail, resulting in an inky/blue/purple-colored 2005 Valandraud boasting a sweet nose of melted chocolate, licorice, graphite, espresso roast, and copious quantities of black cherries and blackberries. Pure, layered, and full-bodied, with gorgeous integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and w ...Read More »

2011 Hosanna, Pomerol (Previously $140)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Now one of my favorite Pomerols (a 2005 tasted in Beijing, China recently was out of this world), the 2011 Hosanna does not have the power of that vintage, or 2009 and 2010, but it exhibits complex forest floor, floral, black raspberry and black cherry notes. With a savory, broad opulence as well as a medium to full-bodied appeal, this silky smooth, seductive, complex wine can be drunk now or cellared for a decade or more. (RP)" (4/2014)92 points James Suckling: "A red with plum and milk-chocolate character, plus hints of hazelnut. Medium to full body with firm tannins and a fruity ...Read More »

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 »

2007 Rouget, Pomerol

Decanter: "Proper Pomerol richness and attack with black fruit. Fresh and forceful ripe fruit and perfume. Acidity adds balance; very fresh as well." (11/2010) Jancis Robinson: "Sweet and mellifluous and lively with some freshness. Well done! Good balance. Long." (4/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This property appears to be making better and better wines with each vintage. The soft, silky, tasty 2007 boasts copious black cherry and ripe strawberry fruit interwoven with notions of sandy soil. Enjoy this medium-bodied, plush Pomerol over the next 7-10 years."

2006 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (Previously $250)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant second wine, the 2006 Les Forts de Latour, a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, possesses a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful bouquet of asphalt, cassis, cedar, truffles, and earth, and a full-bodied, dense, beautiful style that is similar to a 1996 Pauillac. It will age effortlessly for 15 years. Latour's brilliant manager, Frederic Engerer, has purchased 15 hectares of old vine Grenache and Syrah in the Cotes du Rhone region, the Drome, at a cool-climate elevation. I can't wait to see the first vintage from this Cotes du ...Read More »

2011 Certan de May, Pomerol (Previously $85)

(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." (5/2012)90 points James Suckling: "The aromas in this 2011 are impressive, with flowers, plums and currants. Full body with velvety tannins and pretty, ripe, ...Read More »

2010 Malescasse, Haut-Médoc (3L) (Previously $120)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Located in the heart of the Haut-Médoc, close to Lamarque, Malescasse is capable of producing sweet-tasting, friendly wines, such as this 2010. It’s bright, fruity and layered with acidity, and the firm tannins show through slowly, offering power and density for the medium-term." (2/2013)90 points Wine Spectator: "Dense and chewy, with espresso and baker's chocolate notes shrouding the dark currant, fig and blackberry fruit at the core, followed by graphite and anise on the finish for now. Should unwind with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2020." (3/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Dark crimson. Rather gloss ...Read More »

2010 Rollan de By, Médoc (3L) (Previously $150)

Full and wonderfully velvety on the palate with ripe tannins and a sweet pure dark fruit. Already drinks very well, but a few years patience will be rewarded. Best ever?" (2/2013)91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A powerful selection, this is dominated by tannins. Under the firm structure, there is a fruity aspect that will develop. It has the potential to evolve into a full-bodied, intense wine that maintains a sense of elegance."

2011 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Previously $160)

95 points James Suckling: "A dense, refined wine, with blueberries, blackberries and spices. Full body with integrated tannins and a polished texture. Love the mouthfeel to this. Extremely well done for the vintage, considering the hail in St Estephe. Try in 2018." (2/2014)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Powerful, very rich and very concentrated, this epitomizes the opulent style of Cos d’Estournel. A sense of extraction is overwhelmed by the huge, ripe fruit. It shows velvet texture at first, but then the tannins come on strongly, leaving a wine that will age over many years. Drink from 2022."

1983 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (Previously $90)

This property is on the border of St-Julien and the Haut-Médoc, quite close to Beychevelle and Branaire-Ducru. This Pauillac-like property is a K&L favorite, known among Bordeaux enthusiasts as a great value producer that consistently "turns out wines that are often very close to classified-growth quality," to quote Robert Parker.

1989 Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol (Previously $120)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has reached full maturity very quickly. The wine shows some amber at the edge, with a sweet nose of roasted coffee intermixed with caramel, mocha, black cherry, and tobacco. The wine is medium-bodied, beautifully sweet and fleshy on the attack, but then narrows out ever so slightly in the mouth. There remains some tannin to be resolved. Anticipated maturity: Now-2014.Last tasted, 12/02." (1/2003) Wine Spectator: "Earthy and decadent. Dark ruby-garnet. Aromas of black olives, berries and meat.

2010 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Administrator Christian Seeley thinks the 2010 is the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron he has ever made, equaling some of the estate’s colossal wines from vintages such as 1989 and 1990. It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January. Opaque purple, with loads of charcoal, licorice, incense and some exotic Asian spices along with abundant cassis liqueur, blackberry and hints of roasted coffee and spring flowers, it is full-bodied and opulent, with relatively high tannins, but they have sweetened up considerably and seem less aggr ...Read More »

1991 Latour, Pauillac (Previously $700)

This is a seriously good bottle. Great value. Love it.--Latour vertical. Best after 2005." (8/2000) Jancis Robinson: "The 1991 frost-shrunk Bordeaux vintage was so small that it is quite rare to taste a 1991 nowadays. Still quite purple. Engerer reminded us that their best vineyards were not in fact badly affected but this wine still tasted extremely youthful and unformed. Very concentrated and dense - miner ...Read More »

1996 Suduiraut, Sauternes

89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Slight SO2 and a whiff of licorice on the nose. Fat, oaky and moderately thick; fairly sweet but doesn't offer the shape or depth of flavor of the '97. The finish, though, is ripe, honeyed and long." (8/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Bright gold. Pretty simple on the nose. Very big and barley sugar on the palate. You couldn’t fail to like this even if it not one of the subtlest. Chewy end. (17/20 points JR)" (6/2011) K&L Notes: Pineapple aromas and up-front fruit on the palate. Very honeyed and rich. A powerhouse.

1986 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1986 possesses outstanding richness, a deep color, medium body, a graceful, harmonious texture, and superb length. The penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit is a hallmark of this wine. Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic, as well as medium to full-bodied, with awesome extraction of fruit, this Lafite has immense potential. (Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition)" (1/1998)94 points Wine Spectator: "A firm, young wine. Dark ruby color. Intense aromas of blackberry and mint. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Still needs time. (06/01)" (6/2012)

1982 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

96 points James Suckling: "I have tasted this wine at least four or five times in the last two months and it is clearly classic. Some can be a little austere and thin though. This bottle was gorgeous with such pure and bright fruit. It showed aromas of dried cherries and mushrooms that turn to sliced ripe plums. It’s full with round and ripe tannins, and a long, long finish." (3/2012)96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Amber-tinged red; based on other bottles I have tried, the color of this particular bottle seems slightly more evolved than usual.

2004 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac

Very plush wine, richer than the 2006 and at least as long. Finishes with big but ripe tannins." (6/2007)91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Latour’s second wine is, as so often, on a level with many classed growths. In 2004, it is also a very faithful reflection of the vintage: fresh, lively and vital, with acidity and vibrant blackberry fruits very much up front. If not big, it is deliciously fresh and will develop well over five years." (6/2007)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "De ...Read More »

1991 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (Previously $220)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cos d'Estournel's 1991 (about 50% of the harvest was declassified) is one of the wines to buy given its relatively low price and fine quality. It displays a dark ruby color, and a big, rich nose of cassis fruit married intelligently with spicy new oak. Offering surprising fatness and fleshiness, fine length, and a sweet, creamy texture, it should drink well for at least a decade." (2/1994) Wine Spectator: "One of the best wines of the vintage.
