2004 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2004 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc

Jancis Robinson: "Attractive freshness on the nose. Not desperately complex but ready to drink. Solid if a bit dry." (7/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sweet cherry, dusty, loamy soil, and forest floor-like characteristics make an appearance in this medium-bodied, elegant, pretty, but somewhat superficial 2004. Enjoy its charm and suppleness over the next 5-6 years." (6/2007)

2014 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is a stunning barrel sample with oyster shells, blackberries, chalk, blueberries. Full body, great density of fruit and power. Best yet?" (3/2015) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Tour Saint Christophe 2014 has a very pure bouquet. There is some new oak to be subsumed, but there is plenty of fruit to support it. The palate is ripe and sensual on the entry with supple tannin, plush black cherry and blackberry fruit with a generous, modern-style opening with commendable length. This could turn out to be one of Saint Emilion's classier offerings in 2014. (NM)" (4/2015) 88-91 points Antonio Galloni: "The 201 ...Read More »

2011 Puy-Blanquet, St-Emilion (Previously $20)

Paper-fine tannins and finishes fresh. (JH)" (4/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Chateau Puy Blanquet has a ripe cassis and blueberry scented nose that is very primal and quite precocious for the vintage. Given time to unfurl in the glass it offers up attractive Margaux-like floral notes. The palate is medium bodied with quite a supple entry, light in the mouth but well balanced with soft landing on the finish. This will b ...Read More »

(RH)" (6/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This appears to be an attractive, elegant, strong effort from Tertre-Daugay.

2014 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Pavie Macquin is superb. 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.

2012 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This full-bodied beauty exhibits a dense opaque purple color in addition to copious notes of creme de cassis, kirsch, licorice and incense. It should drink well for 15-20 years. This will be a sleeper of the vintage. A superstar of the vintage (not surprising given how successful the proprietors, the Decoster family, have been over the last decade or more), this 58-acre vineyard located near the village of St.-Etienne de Lisse enjoyed yields of 34 hectoliters per hectare. The harvest took place extremely late — between October 22 and November 3. The fina ...Read More »

Wonderful dark round fruit on the palate with velvety caressing tannins. Full with a long finish with lots of dark fruit. Succulent wine." (2/2013)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lush, concentrated black currant and kirsch-like fruit, a hint of licorice and some floral notes and subtle background oak jump from the glass of this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

Dark spices, crème de cassis, new leather, mint and licorice meld together in a dark, sumptuous St.-Emilion built on pure depth and resonance. Suave, polished tannins convey an overall impression of creaminess. This clay-rich terroir delivers considerable breath.

Jancis Robinson: "Fine perfume, becoming more meaty. Really moreish, dry and quite firm. Perhaps a little more structure than fruit." (11/2009) Wine & Spirits: "The aroma is complex and layered with rich cherries and smoky oak tones. This is a smooth-textured, traditional St-Emilion. A bit of bottling sulfur will dissipate as the wine ages, and the tannins will soften up for a steak."

(2/2015)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This great terroir, long owned by the Gratiot family, has come to life under the inspired winemaking of Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt. Some recent vintages have been legendary efforts, especially 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

2010 Divon, St-Georges St-Emilion

We loved this wine on our April 2012 Bordeaux trip. A 2010 with lots of sweetness and forward fruit. Blackberries abound here. Great value. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Co-Owner and Bordeaux Buyer) It comes from the miniscule St-Georges St-Emilion Appellation, which is located within the boundaries of Montagne-St-Emilion. The vineyards of Château Divon have a specially privileged terroir. They face straight south. Always a plus in this uncertain maritime climate!

2014 Canon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "A wonderful Canon with fabulous finesse and class. Full-bodied yet refined and polished. It touches your senses. Shows Right Bank made excellent wines in 2014!" (3/2015) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Canon 2014 is a blend of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, the estate moving towards the latter in terms of its new plantings, which will possibly see 40% in 15 or 20 years time. It was picked from 22 September until 6 October for the Merlot and three days later for the Cabernet Franc, matured in around 80% new oak. It has a glorious bouquet with great purity and delineation: ...Read More »

2005 Soleil, Puissieguin St-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Soleil's 2005 displays a gaudy bouquet of black currant fruit and roasted Provencal herbs, a fat, fleshy texture, decent acidity, and sweet tannin. Consume it over the next 5-6 years. (RP)" (8/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, deep red. Wild aromas of black raspberry, mocha and truffle. Lush and sweet if a bit simple, with flavors of sweet raspberry, mocha and truffle. Finishes with plenty of tannic spine, but the tannins arrive late." (6/2008) Wine Spectator: "Offers gorgeous plum and blackberry character, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, caressing finish ...Read More »

2009 Trapaud, St-Emilion

This nicely affordable Saint-Emilion Grand Cru is composed of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, from a single vineyard in the first year of its conversion to organics. Winner of a Gold Medal at the Concours Agricole de Paris in 2011, it's a fan favorite in France, but a little off the radar hereabouts. On the wine list at the fabulous restaurant Jole in Calistoga.

2014 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Fleur Cardinale was superb all three times I tasted it. Readers should expect a bold, modern-styled St.-Emilion built on opulence and richness. Black cherries, smoke, tobacco and new leather are all nicely delineated throughout. The late, October harvest and 100% new oak also contribute to the wine's super-ripe, voluptuous personality. The blend is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that saw a 5 day cold soak followed by 30-35 days on the skins. (AG)" (4/2015) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "A light ganache edge leads the way, followed by flattering, lightl ...Read More »

1982 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion (Previously $850.00)

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. Penetrating aromas of strawberry jam, raspberry, red cherry, orange p ...Read More »

1999 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The complex, explosively fragrant 1999 Cheval Blanc is a blend of 59% Merlot and 41% Cabernet Franc. It is already showing well, which is a good sign for a wine that traditionally is reserved early in life, but puts on weight and richness in the bottle. Stylistically, this wine is probably cut from the same mold as vintages such as 1985, 1966, and 1962. The color is a dense ruby with purple nuances. Once past the blockbuster bouquet of menthol, leather, black fruits, licorice, and mocha, the wine reveals medium body, extraordinary elegance, purity, and s ...Read More »

1990 Grand Mayne, St-Emilion

91 points Wine Spectator: "A wine with plenty of compact fruit and backbone.Good ruby color. Plenty of chocolate and berrycharacter on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots ofsilky tannins and a long, fresh finish. Willcontinue to improve. Drink now or hold.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective." (8/2000)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 offers an impressively saturated color, exhibiting a touch of amber and a black cherry, mineral, smoky component, with a dash of roasted herbs. Spicy, rich, long, and massive in the mouth, it is full-bodied, sweet, jammy, and capable of lasting for another 8-10 years. Last tasted, 5/01 ...Read More »

2000 Bellevue, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This was the breakthrough vintage for this fabulous terroir that had been under-exploited for so many years. A collaboration between Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt, this medium to full-bodied, pure blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc reveals aromas reminiscent of a liqueur of crushed rocks, black currants, and raspberries. The tannins are still present, and the wine is firmer than I expected, but it is loaded. Made in a distinctive, singular, elegant style, it will be even better in 5-6 years, and should last for two decades thereafte ...Read More »

2014 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96-99 points Wine Spectator: "Reserved aromatically for now, but this has a lot at its clutch, with remarkably silky plum, currant and raspberry fruit inlaid seamlessly with alder, rooibos tea and bergamot notes. There's a fine minerality that stretches out the finish, with remarkable cut, delineation and finesse. This is gorgeous. Tasted non-blind.—" (4/2015) 96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has great tension, with an almost mineral character. The ripe black fruits are complemented by ample acidity, with a stylish structure and enormous aging potential."

Full-bodied, young and vigorous, the wine exhibits a dense blue/black color to the rim along with a stunning nose of asphalt, truffle, blackberry, cassis, lead pencil ...Read More »

2014 Ausone, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "With 60% of Cabernet Franc in the blend, this wine benefits from one of the best years for this varietal. It has intense perfumes as well as immense concentration and structure. The tannins are fine, never too dry and held up by ample acidity. It will age well and long." (4/2015) 95-96 points James Suckling: "A juicy red with beautiful blueberry, blackberry and mineral character. Oyster shell and iodine. Full and tight with 60% Cabernet Franc instead of 50%. This gives a fresher and more linear character of Ausone. Fine finish. Fascinating with such purity." (3/2015) 92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Ausone is a ...Read More »
