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. (Web-2015)" 91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "A fabulous wine from this venerab ...Read More »

2003 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien Top Pick!
2003 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

This, the second wine of Gruaud Larose, provides value and drinkability for those looking for a classic though ripe St-Julien. Named after Baron Jean Auguste Sarget, one of the men who purchased the Gruaud-Larose property in 1812 and whose family managed the estate for the following fifty years. Over the next century, the estate would be divided, with a portion being controlled by the Sarget family. The estate has since been reunited and the château that Sarget built stands as the centerpiece of the property. The estate introduced the second wine in 1979... Read More »

2001 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien Top Pick!
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.

2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the richest, most explosive wines of the year. Scents of blackberry jam, crème de cassis, graphite, pencil shavings, exotic spices and lavender meld into a plush core of super-ripe fruit in a decidedly opulent, full-throttle Ducru that is strikingly beautiful today. The 2014 is likely to require many years to drop some of its baby fat, but it is unquestionably stunning. Veins of saline-inflected minerality add a measure of freshness to the unctuous yet brooding finish. Readers who can find the 2014 should not hesitate ...Read More »

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

92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Léoville Poyferré is impressive. A big, broad-shouldered St. Julien, the 2014 blossoms in the glass with superb depth and richness. Dark red cherry, plum, spice, menthol, crushed flowers, herbs and leather are some of the notes that burst onto the palate in an energetic, tightly wound Poyferré. The 2014 finishes with notable depth and huge, explosive intensity, all of which suggest it will require considerable cellaring. This is without question one of the stars of the vintage.

2014 Gloria, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine promises a great future ahead. It has all the elements in balance—rich tannins, intense black fruits and fragrant acidity—to suggest successful long-term aging." (4/2015) 91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Gloria is ample, rich and beautifully resonant, with more than enough fruit to fill out its broad-shouldered frame. Red currant, blood orange, smoke, white pepper and iron build to the deeply satisfying finish. The combination of extroverted fruit, tannin and saline-inflected minerality dazzles from the very first taste. What a gorgeous wine this is. (AG) ...Read More »

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. Best ever from here. Try in 2019." (2/2012)95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Very supple wine, with great richness ...Read More »

2010 Gloria, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Gloria is an ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate, which would probably be classified if the 1855 hierarchy of the wines of the Medoc were ever done again. Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. It is slightly more restrained than the flamboyant 2009, but equal in quality. This is a juicy, well-proportioned, sensationally concentrated, super-ripe Gloria to drink over the next decades. Of course, it is a sleeper of ...Read More »

Full-bodied, adding velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish." (5/1999) Decanter: "Sophisticated, showing polished use of well integrated oak and minty blackcurrant fruit. Harmonious, well rounded palate with medium acidity, solid but ripe, svelte tannins and clean, mineral fruit." (4/2001) Jancis Robinson: "Mid ruby with a pale rim - very similar to the 1988.

It has a concentrated color and serious tannins that are presented in a stylish package of smooth, polished fruitiness and ample acidity. It is certainly for long-term aging."

With its power leashed, this shows the stylish side of Saint-Julien, although it will certainly age for many years."

2014 Clos du Marquis, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. From a separate vineyard on the Léoville Las Cases estate, this is a solidly structured, concentrated wine of power and depth. It just avoids the bitterness of extraction because of the superrich berry and plum fruits. The tough background yields to vibrant acidity on the finish." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "The purity of fruit to this young wine is impressive with currants, raspberries and black cherries. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long, long finish.

(4/2015) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Sappy kirsch and blackberry coulis notes form the core, with ample tar, ganache and bramble flavors filling in the finish. Displays lots of chewy grip but has the flesh to match. Rock-solid." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "A beautiful young wine with raspberries and plums. Full, round and juicy.

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 »

(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 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."

Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine and a complete contrast to the extracted behemoth of Leoville Barton and the backward, classic Leoville Las Cases.

The exceptionally concentrated 1990 reveals more polished, sweeter tannins along with a big, sweet kiss of black currant, forest floor, cedar, and spice box notes.

A broodingly dense, thick, unctuously textured, inky/plum/garnet/purple color offers up scents of beef blood, steak tartare, cassis, herbs, tobacco, and underbrush.

A beauty, it is ideal for drinking now and over the next 15+ years." (4/2005)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby-red. Highly aromatic nose combines black raspberry, cedar, menthol and leather. Sweet and supple but also nicely delineated, with penetrating, moderately dense flavors of dark berries and exotic spices. Finishes with solid structure ...Read More »

2014 Talbot, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "Ample and broad on the palate, the 2014 Talbot captures the essence of the vintage with an enticing mélange of fresh blue and purplish-hued fruits. Graphite, lavender, mint and sweet spices waft from the glass as the 2014 gradually opens up. At times, Talbot is muscular and powerful, while at other moments it comes across as much more feminine. It is precisely those contrasts that make the 2014 so intriguing. Polished, silky tannins wrap around the super-inviting finish. The 2014 was vinified in cement and steel, with pump overs only. The blend is 62% Ca ...Read More »

2014 Lagrange, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. While the tannins are dry and concentrated, the fresh black currant and berry fruits brilliantly support them. Solid and dense, the wine will age well." (4/2015) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Lagrange is gorgeous. Scents of iron, smoke, cedar and licorice open up in a wine that shows the more powerful, virile side of the year. A wine of breath and amplitude, the 2014 Lagrange is wonderfully expressive today. Red plum, cherry jam, smoke and tobacco are some of the notes that build to the voluptuous finish." (4/2015) 91-92 points James Suckling: "A tight and very fine wine with a blueberry and b ...Read More »

1987 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Typical of most of the Cordier wines in 1987, this is a surprisingly muscular, robust, chunky wine, with plenty of concentrated, weedy, cassis fruit hiding under a veneer of hard tannins. Medium to full bodied, intense, and powerful, this is a wine to consider purchasing by parents who have children born in 1987." (1/1998)

2012 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Firmly tannic in character, this wine is dry and extracted. There's potential for this powerful, impressive wine to bear the wine's very dry character with the weight of its fruit." (4/2013)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics, Léoville-Barton’s 2012 is a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine. This full-bodied wine needs 5-8 years of cellaring and should evolve easily for 25-30 years. (RP)" (4/2015)91 points James Suckling: "Floral and fruity red with hints of vanilla. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a crisp fi ...Read More »

1995 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

94 points Wine Spectator: "A beautiful wine, with layers of ripe fruit, berry, cedar, vanilla and light spice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Very, very classy stuff. (Web, 2007)"91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Somewhat closed and reticent after bottling, but still impressive, this 1995 possesses a dark ruby/purple color, as well as an oaky nose with classic scents of cassis, vanillin, cedar, and spice. Dense and medium to full-bodied, with softer tannin and more accessibility than the 1996, but not quite the packed and stacked effect on the palate, the 1995 is an outstanding textbook St.-Juli ...Read More »

1999 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Leoville-Barton ’99 has a well-defined nose, more restrained and extrovert than the Langoa, with notes of blackberry, wild hedgerow/woodland, Chinese tea and a dash of white pepper. Very good definition. The palate is medium-bodied, sturdy tannins, a little pepper again on the entry with very good structure on the mid-palate. Quite foursquare and 'correct' with an edgy, off-dry, very 'Saint Julien' finish. Very fine – very...English! Drink now-2020. Tasted June 2009.

2001 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "A classic in development, a wine that will last for decades. It is certainly powerful, but already the shape is finalized, with its plums and berries settling down with perfumes, acidity, just enough tannins and a warm, welcoming richness. A great argument for the superiority of 2001 over 2000." (12/2007)94 points Wine Spectator: "This is very floral and perfumed with lots of violets, roses and berries. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a racy finish. Superfresh and long. Focused and clean. Best after 2010."

2001 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Farr’s Ducru-Beaucaillou dinner at the Ledbury. The 2001 Ducru is showing very well, better than I expected given its performances a few years ago. Here, it has a warm, rounded, almost sensual bouquet with black fruits, bay leaf and cedar – certainly more generous and expressive than the 2000 but without the same level of complexity or delineation. The palate is just entertaining the notion of secondary flavours with some intriguing gamey notes infusing the dark black fruit with the finish seasoned by the Cabernet Franc. This should drink well ...Read More »
