2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "Deep and translucent to the core, the 2014 Pontet-Canet is one of the sexiest wines of the vintage. A host of violets, lavender, mint, spices, new leather and plums grace the palate in an utterly exquisite wine endowed with magnificent yet understated depth and crystalline purity. This is without question one of the highlights of the vintage. The 2014 isn't a big wine; rather it is a Pauillac built on a total sense of finesse. The 2014 was vinified in equal parts cement and oak, and is aging in a combination of 50% new oak, 35% amphora and 15% once used ...Read More »

2014 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This has fascinating aromas already with blackcurrants and cassis. Hints of spices. It’s full-bodied with ultra-fine tannins and a long, focused finish. Muscular but toned and beautiful." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Pure Cabernet flavors are right at the front of this wine. It has fragrant fruitiness, with layers of black currant and fresh, juicy acidity on the palate. It's a bright wine, with just a touch of smoky wood flavors at the end." (4/2015) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Offers lovely weight and feel, with a big core of plum, blackberry and black currant fruit that manages to show re ...Read More »

2014 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is a huge wine. Rich, powerful and dense, yet remarkably precise, the 2014 boasts extraordinary density and fabulous balance. Scents of black fruits, graphite, smoke, tobacco, grilled herbs and incense meld into a huge core of fruit. Hints of black cherry jam, wild flowers and mint add an attractive aromatic top register on the close. Explosive and virile in style, the 2014 appears to have the pedigree to age well for several decades. It is without question one of the wines of the year. The blend is 65% Cab ...Read More »

2014 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "A fabulous young wine with superb depth of fruit and density that shows blueberries, blackberries, oyster shells and stones. Full-bodied, chewy yet with a laser-guided backbone of tannins. Goes on for minutes. Concentrated yet so fine and beautiful. The tannin content analysis is the same as 2009 and 2010 apparently from the winemakers, but the tannin quality is better. Amazing. This could be a remake of the 2010 but fresher." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has the finest, dusty tannins that float through the structure. Don't be deceived, though—this ri ...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. (Web Only - 2015)" 92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "A big, ample wine, the 2014 Figeac is b ...Read More »

2004 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

Expect this impressive wine to age for 10-15 years." (6/2007)93 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2007* Shows beautiful aromas of crushed berries and currants, with hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with lovely currant, licorice and mint. Long and caressing. Very refined and balanced red. Another winner from Pontet-Canet. Best after 2011."

2009 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux Top Pick!
2009 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular effort from this estate rivaling their 2005, but more flashy/flamboyant, this dark ruby/purple wine has a strikingly intense nose of licorice, flowers, plums and dark berries. Medium to full-bodied, very approachable and silky, this suave, very sexy wine can be drunk early on as well as aged for 20+ years. (RP)" (2/2012)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Warm and rounded, this spicy wine has wood flavors just showing through the ripe fruit.

2009 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Haut couture becomes a wine! This dense purple wine has the tell-tale notes of flowers and pencil shavings, and its broad aromatics are intense and totally captivating. Powerful, rich, and full, but less tannic than the 2005 and more opulent, this is a dazzling Branaire to drink between 2017-2035." (2/2012)95 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous aromas of dark berries and wet earth, with hints of graphite. Full body, with juicy, chewy tannins and a long rich, fruity, and succulent finish.

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." (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. The finish is still coiled up, but there's range and length here to spare." (4/2015) 93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "A real head-turner, the 2014 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc is all about texture, silkiness and polish. All the elem ...Read More »

2011 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Previously $110.00)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "** Cellar Selection ** So smooth, this is a rich, grandiose wine. Although it is full of black currant fruits and spice flavors, the texture is most impressive. Dusty tannins are integrated with juicy fruits seamlessly. The purest fruit flavors are allied to linear tannins in a precise yet generous way. The wine is evolving beautifully, but do not drink before 2020." (5/2014)95 points James Suckling: "A wine with lots of ripe berries, verging on dried fruits. Full and chewy with ripe, round, chewy tannins. It needs lots of bottle age. A wine of steel. From biodynamically grown gra ...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 »

2000 Sociando Mallet, Haut-Médoc

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Rich, perfumed aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, minerals and cocoa powder. Big, dense, lush and deep, but with lovely sappy vinosity; this expands impressively to fill the mouth. Finishes very long, with suave, broad tannins and a note of black olive. A gloriously successful vintage for Sociando-Mallet, offering a full range of cabernet aromatics." (5/2003)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a beautiful wine and certainly one of the great sleepers of the vintage. I originally predicted that this wine would be at full maturity between 2007 and 2028, but I would ...Read More »

1982 Suduiraut, Sauternes

4 stars Michael Broadbent (Nov 1992): "Roasted grapes picked exceptionally early, 16 September. Alcohol 14%. First tasted in 1988: sweet, hefty; minty, spicy; good length and acidity. More recently: waxy yellow; rich bouquet; very sweet, full-bodied. Showing well." This wine is actually better than the heralded 1983 vintage because Suduiraut makes better wines when they pick early in the season.

2014 Certan de May, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Certan de May is one of the most powerful, tannic wines in the Moueix range. There is more than enough fruit and overall density to fill out the big, broad-shouldered frame. Layers of flavors and textures build as the wine opens up, but today, the Certan de May remains quite imposing. My sense is that it will require considerable aging." (4/2015) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Densely tannic and ripe, this is a powerful wine, with dark tannins that surround the black currant fruits. It has a tough edge that's powerful and needs time to soften and round out into a ...Read More »

2005 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

92 points Wine & Spirits: "This vintage emphasizes dark chocolate and French roast coffee scents. Its luscious cherry flavors give a soft, round impression in the middle, then it lightens up a little, needing time for the flavors to extend. The fineness of Langoa is there, and should be more apparent in ten years' time." (10/2008)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Big, ripe, almost exotic, this has developed impressively over the past 18 months. Its tannins are certainly huge, but so is the fruit, warm, rich and enticing. Very powered, it thrusts black currants and acidity right up front." (6/2008)92 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderful aromas of ...Read More »

1986 Batailley, Pauillac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1986's rating may turn out to be conservative as this wine tends to show better after 10-12 years in the bottle than it does when young. Made from 70 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 20 percent Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the 1986 is full bodied, deep ruby/purple in color, but extremely hard and tannic. However, it appears to have the depth and concentration of fruit necessary to outlast the tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015." (1/1998) Wine Spectator: "Elegant and tasty with cedar, plum and currant flavors of moderate depth an d intensity ...Read More »

2008 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac

Jancis Robinson: "Deep crimson with a purple tinge. The only blend that might change very slightly - maybe add a little bit more press wine or something. Really rather seductive nose. You could almost drink this now! Very polished and rich and zesty. Pretty clever. Hint of malt that softens it. Then scrunched up on the finish. Clean and neat. Lots of Merlot." (5/2009) K&L Notes: This is Château Latour's third wine, created by the estate in 1973 from the finished wine that is still good, but that doesn't fit the Les Forts de Latour (Latour's second label) profile.

Full-bodied, with layers of ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish. Fantastic. Just coming around. (Web 2007)"91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A massive wine, with a cigar box, chocolatey, thick, black currant and cherry-scented nose, this full-bodied wine is crammed with layers of fruit, extract, glycerin, and alcohol. Spicy yet rich, with high tannin, the 1995 Canon-La-Gaffeliere will need a minimum of 5-6 years of cellaring. The finish is long and rich, and the tan ...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 »

(3/2003) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 is an uncompromising, traditional claret, displaying a deep ruby color and a nose of cedar, damp earth, plums, and currants. Medium to full-bodied, solidly tannic, and attractive, it will age well for 10-15 years. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2017."

2005 Monbousquet, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a less than noble terroir in Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens, Gerard Perse has accomplished miraculous things at Monbousquet. Prior to his acquisition of this property in the mid-nineties, this wine tasted like watered-down Beaujolais, but Perse has turned it into one of the more stunning, modern-styled wines of Bordeaux. A blend of approximately two-thirds Merlot, one-third Cabernet Franc and 8-10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 exhibits plenty of toasty oak, roasted herb, meat juice, blackberry, cherry, and spice characteristics along with a touch of inc ...Read More »

It lasts for minutes." (3/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a deliciously fruity wine that has fine poise between richness and ripe peach and red apple flavors. The tangy texture gives the wine extra complexity. It should age well, although it will also be attractive soon."

2009 d'Issan, Margaux

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong effort from proprietor Emmanuel Cruse, d’Issan’s 2009 was fashioned from minuscule yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, and its 13.7% natural alcohol set a record at this estate. Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot, it exhibits a classic Margaux fragrance of acacia flowers/violets, blueberries, cassis, licorice and camphor. Opulent and full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a rich, dense style, it will be interesting to compare the 2009 with the brilliant 2000 and 2005 over the next two to three decades.

The wine hits the palate with the profound elegance and purity that have become so much a characteristic under Wilmers and Sanders.

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.

Jancis Robinson: "Subtle maturation on the nose. Very lively and dancing with good core of fruit. Good for now but supported by exceptionally fine tannins. Delicate, dancing. 18/20 points." (9/2006) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 has turned out beautifully from the bottle. It is an exceptionally elegant wine, with well-integrated oak, and tobacco-tinged, cherry and cassis fruit. It appears to be a return to the style of the seventies and early eighties. Lush, with excellent concentration, a beautiful texture, and a flattering, potentially complex aromatic profile, this medium-bodied wine should ...Read More »

1997 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac Back In Stock!
1997 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This hedonistic, luscious, sexy, opulently-textured Pichon-Lalande is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. Exhibiting a dark ruby color with purple nuances, it is open-knit, with plentiful quantities of roasted herbs, smoky oak, vanillin, and creamy black currant fruit. A lush texture, low acidity, and an accessible, velvety-textured style will have many admirers. (RP)" (4/2000) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Moderately saturated red-ruby. Plum and smoky oak on the nose. Soft, easygoing and harmonious, with modest complexity. Supple fin ...Read More »

2000 Saint-Pierre, St-Julien

90 points Wine Spectator: "Silky and decadent, with berry, tobacco, chocolate and meat character. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a caressing finish." (03/03) 89 points Parker: "Smoky and earthy, with copious jammy cassis fruit and sweet tannin, this is an excellent, full-bodied Saint-Pierre. The saturated deep purple color is followed by a persistent, concentrated wine with copious sweet tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020." (04/03) A rising star in Bordeaux in the decade of the 2000s. This wine has exceptional balance and tons of red fruit ... Read More »

1999 Pape-Clément, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The stunning1999 Pape Clement is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Merlot. The wine is performing better from bottle than it did from cask. There is a fabulous bouquet of smoke, blueberries, raspberry cassis, and liquid minerals. This is a medium to full-bodied, layered, concentrated wine with no hard edges. As it sat in the glass, additional aromas of cedar wood, graphite, and cigar smoke emerged. This is a classic, sexy, knock-out Pessac-Leognan with a surprisingly dense, rich style for a 1999. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2018." (4/2002)

2012 Calon Ségur, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Cellar Selection * Firm and structured, this beautifully concentrated wine has plenty of the dark tannins that come out of Cabernet Sauvignon in Saint-Estèphe while allowing room for juicy fruit. The wood aging is still showing, giving some spice to the wine. At the end, it’s the density of the wine that’s so impressive. Drink from 2024." (5/2015)93 points James Suckling: "Super fresh and floral with raspberry, currant and berry character. Full body, with fine tannins and a long, long finish. Bright and racy. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot." (4/2013)93 points Wine Spectator: "Dense ...Read More »

2011 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This property, which has been on a qualitative tear over the last generation, has produced one of the most successful wines of 2011. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, it is broad, rich, medium to full-bodied and dense. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as lots of concentration, silky tannins, and a bigger, richer mouthfeel than any of its St.-Julien peers. The result is one of the stars of the vintage. (RP)" (4/2014)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Cellar Selection * This is a really fruity wine that’s opulent and gorgeousl ...Read More »

2000 Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Seemingly fully mature, Michel and Dany Rolland’s seductive 2000 Bon Pasteur reveals a dark garnet/plum color along with a big, sweet kiss of soy, cedar, roasted herbs, blackberries, caramelized black cherries, and hints of smoke and kirsch. This fleshy, full-bodied Pomerol reveals low acidity, a savory, broad mid-palate, and a decade of life ahead of it. (RP)" (6/2010) 90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated deep ruby. Flamboyant nose combines dark berries, minerals, lead pencil, bitter chocolate, roasted herbs and espresso. Dense, concentrated and firmly structured, with mineral and ...Read More »

2010 Latour-Martillac, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

92-93 points James Suckling: "I love the mid-palate to this young and attractive red, with silky tannins and alluring mineral, berry and stone character. Enchanting." (4/2011)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is an austere, structured wine. Its tannic framework currently dominates, giving the impression of a firm wine. It feels like classic Bordeaux, upright and dense. This makes for a wine that will need several years' aging." (5/2013)92 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, but supple along the edges, offering a packed core of cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruit. The lovely licorice, dark tobacco and violet notes glide to the finish, which ...Read More »

1990 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc(1.5L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 is opaque in color, with a huge, peppery, spicy, black cherry nose intermingled with aromas of Provencal herbs. In the mouth, there is excellent richness, a density and thickness to the texture, fine spice, tannin and glycerin in the long finish. (RP)" (2/1993) K&L Notes: Over the years Ch. Lanessan has gained quite a following here at K&L for offering exceptional Bordeaux values. While this is more expensive than many of our previous offerings, it is still quite the bargain from the outstanding 1990 vintage. K&L's co-owner and Bordeaux buyer, Clyde Beffa J... Read More »

1993 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Spicy red and blackcurrant aromas compete with peppery, cedary notes. Sweet, rich, ripe fruit hits the palate in a medium-bodied, soft, pretty style. A tannic finish does not detract from the precocious, flattering personality of this elegant, herbaceous but delicious, medium-bodied, supple Ducru-Beaucaillou. A very good effort for the vintage..."

1989 Haut-Bages-Averous, Pauillac

90 points Wine Spectator: "Shows excellent harmony, with powerful tar, blackberry and fruit aromas and a super-rich palate. The ample tannins are fully integrated, giving it excellent balance." (3/1992) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 is an excellent second wine, displaying rich cassis fruit, good, spicy, new oak, and a delicious, medium to full-bodied, corpulent texture." (2/1993) K&L Notes: This is the second label (renamed Echo de Lynch-Bages in 2008) of Lynch-Bages, a highly regarded fifth growth from Pauillac. The second wine displays the same exceptional winemaking as its "big brother," but is sourced from young... Read More »
