2009 Maison Blanche, Médoc (1.5L) Top Pick!
2009 Maison Blanche, Médoc (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant, with nicely packed raspberry, fig and blackberry fruit carried by mouthwatering acidity and well-embedded structure. Lots of anise, spice and tar frames the finish. Stéphane Derenoncourt consulting here. Best from 2012 through 2019." (3/2012) K&L Notes: The blend for the 2009 Château Maison Blanche is 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc is usually not included in this wine, but was in 2009 because it came in so perfectly. This is stunningly delicious...blackberries and toasty oak abound. Will cellar well for five-pl... Read More »

2009 Lestruelle, Médoc (1.5L)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Nicely toasty, with vanilla and espresso notes up front, but the core of raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit rushes in behind it, with a long, licorice-filled finish. Should settle in nicely. Stéphane Derenoncourt consulting here. Best from 2012 through 2017." (3/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Light crimson. Smells sweet and light. Very forward and rather soft but lots of fun. Fine tannins perceptible only on the very end of the palate."

Lovely texture. 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 percent Merlot and 15 percent Petit Verdot.

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 »

Freshly cut flowers, mint, dark berries and sage are some of the notes that are pushed forward in a sweet, unctuous St. Estèphe endowed with tons of class and personality. Raspberry jam and crushed flowers add further shades of nuance. The 2014 captures a deeply intriguing blend of lifted aromatics, super-ripe, fruit, pulsating energy and polished tannins.

2014 Labégorce, Margaux (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Labégorce is round, supple and nicely layered. Smoke, plums, black cherries and French oak meld together in a ripe, racy Margaux built on textured fruit. Sweet floral notes add lift on the layered, sensual finish. This voluptuous Margaux should drink well pretty much upon release. There is a lot to like, that much is clear. The blend is 58% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. Michel Rolland is the Consultant for Labégorce, which is owned by the Perrodo family.

2000 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis (1.5L)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under any new classification, this should certainly be a classed growth. Today it is among the leaders of the crus bourgeois. The 2000 is opulent, generous, stylish. The tannins are ripe and sweet, the fruit is finely balanced. It will develop well over the next 10-15 years."

It is firmly structured, with a dry core and medium-plus concentration. It promises a long life ahead."

(10/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the better Clarkes ever made, this wine from the cool, backwater appellation of Listrac displays serious density, an opaque ruby/purple color, and lots of earth, black currants and raspberries.

Slowly the juicy fruit shows through on the mid palate, yielding a wine that offers the potential of solid fruits and excellent acidity."

(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."

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 »

It is dark and brooding on the one hand and fresh in black currant fruit on the other. Woody tones support the superb fruits and complement the texture."

Tobacco, new leather, menthol, cloves, earthiness are all laced together, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that stands out most. The 2014 finishes with notable energy and an invigorating sense of freshness. I won't be surprised if the 2014 comes towards the higher end of this range once bottled.

Next to impossible to find a '95 of this quality for the price. Awesome! According to Robert Parker: "The 1995 is a silky, supple, charming, forthcoming wine that is well above its cru bourgeois classification. The color is a healthy saturated deep ruby/purple, and the wine offers up gobs of jammy black fruits intermixed with subtle herbs, spice, and toast. In the mouth, the wine displays excellent richness, a layered, medium-bodied personality, well-disguised tannin and acidity, and a hedonistic mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010.

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 »

Scents of black fruits, graphite, smoke, tobacco, grilled herbs and incense meld into a huge core of fruit.

Despite the increase, the very fine, elegant tannins seem suspended in the wine. Ample acidity supports the black currant fruitiness, with a firm, impressive structure that promises good aging potential."

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.

(4/2015) 92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "Vibrant and pulsating in the glass, the 2014 Grand Puy Lacoste impresses for its superb overall balance. The flavors are bright and beautifully expressive, with sweet floral notes woven throughout that give the wine much of its nuance, while the seamless, silky tannins speak to finesse. Even with all of its explosive energy, the 2014 is not an obvi ...Read More »

2005 La Confession, St-Emilion (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Opaque purple, with a sweet blue and blackberry perfume intertwined with licorice and graphite, the 2005 La Confession exhibits massive concentration and extraction, but this full-bodied wine pulls back from being over-the-top because of intrinsic freshness and admirable purity. It is a brilliant effort from the young Janouiex, but it needs some cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028" (4/2008)89 points Wine Spectator: "Very floral and fruity, with hints of blackberry and flowers. Medium- to full-bodied, with firm tannins and a good density of fruit. Long and racy. A little rese ...Read More »

1998 Latour, Pauillac (1.5L)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Deep aromas of cassis, licorice and lead pencil. Deeper than Les Forts but currently rather mute in the middle. Strongly minerally. Offers classic Latour structure and spine. Finishes with sneaky, subtle persistence. 91(+?) points" (6/2001)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Not a blockbuster, the 1998 possesses a dark garnet/purple color in addition to a complex bouquet of underbrush, cedar, walnuts, and licorice-tinged black currants. Although medium to full-bodied and moderately tannic, it lacks the expansiveness in the mid-palate necessary to be truly great. Moreover, the tann ...Read More »

2005 Lascombes, Margaux (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 2005 Lascombes, Margaux (1.5L) (95RP, 94W&S, 93WS, (89-92ST), 91WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " A gorgeous example of Lascombes, the 2005, a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, continues the remarkable turn-around in quality that began five years ago. A stunningly opulent wine with a dense purple color, the 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, full body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish. This is a brilliant, modern-styled Margaux that should age for 30-35 years" (04/2008)

2014 Potensac, Médoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. An unusually high proportion of Cabernet Franc in this wine has given it a wonderfully aromatic character. It is a structured, firm wine that is a great success." (4/2015) 91-92 points James Suckling: "It’s been a while since I had a Potensac like this. Aromatic, very structured and polished with currant character and wonderful length. Polished tannins. Exceptionally small production for this year." (3/2015) 88-91 points Wine Spectator: "Shows textbook Bordeaux austerity, with racy pomegranate and red currant notes, carried by a bright iron spine. Will unwind slowly but surely. (Web-2015)" 88-90 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Poten ...Read More »

2014 Clarke Rothschild, Listrac (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

The origins of the Château Clarke estate date back to the 12th century when the Cistercian monks of the Vertheuil Abbey planted the first vines. Much more recently, the knight Tobie Clarke purchased the land that would permanently bear his name in 1818. Then, after being repeatedly handed down and finally sold, the property was bought in 1973 by the Baron Edmond de Rothschild. It was at this time that the neglected vineyard was re-planned, and then completely recreated between 1974 and 1978, to attain a final wine-producing area of 54 hectares.Today, the... Read More »

1997 Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes (1.5L)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Has botrytis character and intense aromas of honey, spice, almond and dried apricot. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a long, thick finish. Best after 2004." (1/2000) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Restrained aromas of orange peel, lime, pineapple and spicy oak. Cooler flavors of spice, peach and dried fruits. Very good but not outstanding intensity and concentration. But very well balanced, and persistent on the finish. Honey and marzipan notes give the back end a lovely sweetness." (7/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Oaky still with a kirsch overlay yet great tension too. This wine is absolutely massive, the bigg ...Read More »

1978 Talbot, St-Julien (1.5L)

According to Robert Parker: "Developing very nicely in the bottle, the 1978 Talbot has a concentrated, ripe, round, rich, herbaceous-scented, black currant fruitiness, a bouquet suggestive of plums and cedary, toasty oak, a generous texture, and some tannins in the finish. It has just reached its plateau of maturity. Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted, 10/90." (Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition)
