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.

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.

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 »

2002 La Tour de By, Médoc

Decanter: "Fine deep colour, rather earthy, vegetal fruit, definite Cabernet dominance, quite good length, just shows an edge of leanness, but quite good Médoc style. Drink 2006-12 (SS)" (4/2003) K&L Notes: From gravel-rich vineyards of the Médoc, this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend is soften by the addition of Merlot and Petit Verdot, and aged for 12 months in oak barrels. Solid and structured, young but ready to drink now, this wine is an excellent value as an "everyday Bordeaux." One of the few delicious 2002s in Clyde's view.

2003 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien

94 points James Suckling: "Extremely perfumed, with currants, blackberries, and flowers on the nose. Full bodied, with a solid core of beautiful fruit and super chewy, yet polished tannins. This is a brick house. Pull the cork after 2016." (3/2011)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This fully mature, gorgeous 2003 Branaire Ducru possesses silky tannins, lots of cedary, spice box, floral, black cherry, forest floor and velvety leather-like notes, full body, and an opulent, complex yet elegant style. A beauty of complexity, richness and finesse, it should continue to drink well for another 5-6 years. (RP)" (8/2014)93 points Wine Spectator: "Opul ...Read More »

2004 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A top-notch effort from proprietress Helene Garcin, Haut-Bergey’s 2004 exhibits an evolved, cedary, smoky, tobacco, and sweet cherry-scented bouquet offered in a medium-bodied, supple-textured style." (6/2007) Decanter: "Very ripe, modern style. Pronounced colour. Creamy, cassis cordiale and spice fragrance. Rich, chunky fruit with a firm tannic structure." (4/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Sexy, rather wild aromas of roasted raspberry and game. Supple but firm-edged, with good grip to the raspberry and mineral flavors. There's good fruit here but limited fat and a restrained sweetne ...Read More »

1993 Sarget de Gruaud Larose, St-Julien (1.5L)

Made from the estate's 82 hectares of vines grown on typical Garonne gravel, this, the second wine of Gruaud Larose, provides value and near-term 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 ... Read More »

2004 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

95 points Wine & Spirits: "Suduiraut has a rather delicate floral aroma for a wine that's luminous gold. Botrytis flavors kick in on the palate and the wine explodes. What's left is ethereal: scents of the forest, of beeswax, ginger and Mandarin orange marmalade, a range of honeyed flavors that never seems to stop. A reset for your taste receptors, this is mood-altering wine. Absolutely lovely." (10/2007)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Like so many vintages of Suduiraut, this wine shows richness, even in the relatively delicate 2004. Ripe, sweet fruit flavors —dates, figs, pineapples and tangerines—dominate. This ...Read More »

1999 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe

Jancis Robinson: "Sweet and resolved on the nose. Very round: not a tannin to be seen. Just a tad simple but pleasing and with good freshness on the finish. Just a bit chewy. All very flattering at first. Round and charming. At a completely different stage of evolution from the 2000 - much more evolved." (8/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Wild aromas of redcurrant, minerals, leather, gunflint and game; developing faster than either of the more recent vintages are likely to do. A wine of modest density and fat, and currently rather austere, but possesses very good vinosity and length. Tanni ...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 »

2005 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis en Médoc

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Great, spicy new wood flavors are balanced by the intense, solid fruits and deep, almost brooding tannins. This is a big wine, but it still preserves a good sense of proportion." (6/2006)90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**One Star** Despite the fact that this wine is 40% Merlot, it comes equipped with tannins more reminiscent of St. Estephe than anywhere else in Bordeaux. It inner pieces are quite lovely, however, and if one is willing to take the decade-long risk that the currant and wild flower character of its aromas and underlying flavors will emerge fully with time, then this wine o ...Read More »

1996 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, d'Angludet's 1996 reveals an opaque purple color, as well as a powerful, rich, black currant-scented nose with cedar, weedy tobacco, licorice, and earth in the background. Dense, backward, and atypically powerful and unevolved for a wine from this well-run chateau, this boldly made, tannic, yet impressively endowed wine will have a long lifeline. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2015." (4/1999) Wine Spectator: "Not a big wine, but a delicious drinkable style that shows good finesse. Aromas of berries and spices follow through to the palate. Medium-bodie ...Read More »
