2009 de Chantegrive, Graves

92 points James Suckling: "A solid red with ripe plum, cherry and vanilla character. Full and savory with round and ripe tannins and a long, intense finish. Approachable, but better in 2015." (7/2012) 89-91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Solidly packed tannins, very firm and structured, a feeling of considerable extract as well as a high toast content." (8/2010)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A major sleeper of the vintage, this blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is another 'best ever' performance.

1998 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

Jancis Robinson: "Bright ruby. Minty, refreshing nose. Juicy and with just a hint of wet fur but basically good for a wine with this amount of bottle age. Dry finish. Good energy here.

2010 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

92-93 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that shows lots of chocolate, tobacco and currants. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. All there." (4/2011)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Haut-Bergey 2010 has a very concentrated bouquet with dense blackberry, briary, crushed stone and tobacco on the nose that unfolds in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannins on the entry.

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 »

2012 Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

Rich, full-bodied and silky textured, this complex, stunning Pessac-Léognan from this tiny jewel of a vineyard near Haut Brion is hitting all the high notes in 2012. It should drink well for 15-20. This is another bottled wine that dramatically out-performed its barrel sample."

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.

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. The wine is serious, darkly structured and firm in character, packed with tannins that lend a very dry feel. Fragrant fruitiness and intense acidity shine through for a very fine wine, likely to age over several decades." (4/2015) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "Features a youthfully muscular edge, but remains elegant despite the heft, with a core of plum, red currant and raspberry fruit, guided by supple tannins and backed by subtle tobacco and spice hints. A light bay thread chimes in on the finish, while a juniper detail adds a pleasant underpinning. Displays admirable ...Read More »

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 »

2012 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This large estate of 131 acres has been run brilliantly by a Belgian family, the Bonnies since their acquisition a number of years ago. The quality of the white and red have soared to exceptional heights, and this is certainly still one of the more realistically priced wines of Pessac-Lèognan and classified crus. The 2012 is a beauty, with a dense ruby/purple color, a fabulously plush, opulent texture and medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, spicy earth and blueberry. Quite rich, yet light on its feet, this is an absolutely textbook Pessac-Lèognan, w ...Read More »

(7/2012)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "So opulent and open, this is a seductively ripe wine, beautifully layering its sweet red-berry fruits, complex ripe tannins and rounded structure. It is still Bordeaux in its texture, but it is certainly very New World in its rich density."

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 »

In the mouth, bright gooseberry, citrus and melon flavors are complicated by notes of gin and tequila. Finishes with sneaky concentration and noteworthy savory complexity." (6/2014)91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is soft and rounded, while also suggesting potential richness. The fruits come through slowly, supported by a strong mineral character. It needs time."

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 »

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.

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." (4/2015) 94-97 points Wine Spectator: "This crackles with energy, while a mix of white peach, yellow apple, Chartreuse, chamomile and green plum notes all mix together.

Orange peel, mint and white flowers lead to more tropical-leaning fruits, along with a host of honey, melon and quince overtones. The Blanc retains gorgeous nuance for such a big, oily, viscous white. This is another superb showing from Bernard Magrez and his team led by Consulting Winemaker Michel Rolland.

1989 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous wine, so well crafted. Good dark-ruby color. Aromas of cherry, spice and cocoa. Full-bodied, firmly tannic and a long finish of fruit and tannins." (5/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Very rich and thick. Bit like 2009. Bit loose. Very sweet. Some dried grape flavours." (11/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Haut-Bailly is often such a restrained, gentle, subtle wine that it can get lost in a blind tasting, particularly when served side by side with more powerful Bordeaux. That was not the case in my recent tasting, as both the 1989 and 1990 vintages performed well. The 1989 is a ripe, sweet, supple wine ...Read More »

2014 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Domaine de Chevalier is stunningly beautiful. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, spice and leather are all supported by veins of underlying acidity and minerality. Sweet floral and spice notes continue to open up over time, but it is the wine's imposing structure that stands out most. Readers will need to be especially patient here, as the domaine's wines are typically very slow to mature. That is especially like to be the case with the 2014, as the tannins are quite imposing at this stage. The 2014 is going to need a considerable amount of time. The ...Read More »

2014 Clos Marsalette Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Chartreuse, fennel frond, yellow apple and chamomile notes make for a distinctive and alluring mix, with a shortbread accent giving the finish weight, while fresh acidity imparts zip. (Website only - 2015)" 90-91 points James Suckling: "This is a beautiful wine with dense body and sliced apple and pear character. Full body and racy. Very fine." (3/2015) Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Clos Marsalette Blanc is intensely bright and pointed at this stage, with brilliant acidity the dominant element today. Lemon peel, flowers and green apples open up nicely, but the style remains focused, tense and also a bit uny ...Read More »

2014 Carbonnieux Blanc, Graves (Pre-Arrival)

91-92 points James Suckling: "Lots of sliced apple and pear character with a full body, fresh fruits and a tangy finish. Shows such balance and beauty already." (4/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Carbonnieux Blanc 2014 has a pretty nose in the making: precise apple blossom and blackcurrant leaf aromas that gently waft from the glass. The palate is crisp on the entry, the acidity not as shrill as some of its peers, thus rendering it a more 'languid' Pessac-Léognan. There is already a very elegant, gravelly finish that lingers in the mouth–a very promising Carbonnieux Blanc that may merit a higher sco ...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 »

1991 La Mission Haut Brion, Pessac-Leognan

Jancis Robinson: "Brought by Sebastian Payne MW of The Wine Society. Subtle, fresh with a light suggestion of warm bricks on the nose. Relatively light bodied but beautifully balanced. A ballet dancer of a wine. A very successful and elegant 1991. (17.5/20 points)" (1/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "La Mission enjoyed considerable success in the 1991 vintage. This deep ruby-colored wine boasts a fragrant, smoky, mineral, and berry-scented nose. Suave, elegant, and rich, with noticeable fatness to its harmonious flavors, good balance, and a long, medium-bodied finish, the wine exhibits fine ripeness, ...Read More »

2013 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This white is so dense and powerful, with a finish that lasts for minutes. Pear, lemon, grapefruit and loads of minerals. Has more weight than all the red wines made in 2013. Full body. Profound depth. I look forward to tasting this from bottle in a few years." (4/2014) 94-97 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc is fabulous. White flowers, spices, mint, grapefruit and lemon peel all meld together in a distinctive wine bursting with personality. The flavors are bright and high-toned, while aging on the lees with a little bit of stirring adds texture. Intense, sali ...Read More »

2009 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan

98 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromas of plums and blueberries and flowers. Full-bodied with plums, stones, hazelnuts and milk chocolate, and a long, long finish. Marvelous. Best ever. Try in 2017." (7/2012) 93-96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-purple. Vibrant blackcurrant, blackberry and smoke aromas show noteworthy depth and purity. Big and ripe on the palate, but with lovely balance to its black fruit and smoke flavors. The very long, pure finish features a lingering mineral streak and very fine tannins. This exceptional vintage of Pape Clement packs an amazing amount of concentration on a seemingly weigh ...Read More »

1995 Pape-Clement, Pessac-Léognan

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby-red. Expressive nose combines raspberry, hot stones, tobacco, and smoky oak. Rich, sweet and mouthfilling, with a softer structure than the '96. Enticing fruit is accessible already. Complicating notes of smoke, leather and tar. Builds slowly on the sweet finish, which features fine, dusty tannins. But can't quite match the '96 for grip." (5/1998)90 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of blackberry, tobacco and black licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of ripe fruit and a chewy, slightly hot finish. Big, muscular wine. Needs time.--'95/'96 Bordeaux ...Read More »

2010 Rahoul, Graves

90 points Wine Spectator: "Polished and alluring, with black tea, dense plum and blackberry fruit, followed by a long, licorice- and tar-filled finish that glides along with surprisingly polished structure. An echo of smoky tobacco lingers as well, and this offers good range and depth. Best from 2014 through 2021. 8,500 cases made. –JM" (1/2013) Jancis Robinson: "Dark purple. Very intense nose and colour. Sweet, perfumed start with a little oak influence. Lots of flesh and less freshness than some. Marked structure." (5/2011) James Suckling: "Aromas of ripe fruit with prunes, spice and berries. Full body with velvety t ...Read More »

2014 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "A wine with dark berry and currant character that is juicy and rich. Full-bodied, round, velvety and savory. Second wine of La Mission." (4/2015) 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This richly structured, full wine is soft and rounded, with black currant and intense acidity as the background. The tannins feel deceptively firm because of the fruit." (4/2015) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "right red plum, pomegranate, spices, graphite and smoke emerge from the 2014 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion, a bold, intense wine loaded with class and pedigree. Rich, ample and broad on the palate, the 2014 delivers t ...Read More »
