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 »

2014 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Calon Ségur is silky, polished and exceptionally beautiful. 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. Persistent and impeccably balanced throughout, the 2014 Calon Ségur is without question one of the wines of the vintage. The refined ...Read More »

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.

2012 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux

94 points James Suckling: "This is amazing for the second wine with incredible white truffle, stone and currant character. Purity of fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, silky and refined. Fantastic length. Better in 2018 but almost impossible to resist now. Incredible." (2/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another brilliant example from administrator Thomas Duroux and his team, the intense second wine, Palmer’s 2012 Alter Ego (51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot), offers up plenty of blackberry and crème de cassis notes along with some spring flowers, licorice and subtle background oak.

2014 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Rock-solid, with a gutsy core of plum, black currant, steeped fig and melted licorice snap, all carried by a gorgeous, charcoal-edged spine. Long, and loaded with fruit and grip. As solid as they come." (4/2015) 92-95 points Antonio Galloni: "Vibrant and pulsating in the glass, the 2014 Grand Puy Lacoste impresses for its superb overall balance.

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.

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 Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Smith Haut Lafitte is quite supple and textured in the glass, with lovely understated richness and impeccable overall balance. The least expressive of the 2014s I tasted at the estate, the Grand Vin is all finesse. Silky tannins and distinctly red-hued fruit are two of the signatures in an exceptionally polished wine endowed with fabulous overall balance. Sweet floral and mint notes add striking aromatic lift. Quite simply, although the 2014 is magnificent, it is also far from obvious in style. This is about as refined a 2014 as I came across du ...Read More »

Red cherry, red currant and mint open up in a translucent, beautifully delineated wine. Ferrous and savory notes follow as the wine blossoms in the glass, revealing its depth and resonance. All the elements fall into place in a gracious wine that is at once classically austere, yet also supple and highly expressive, with virtually no sensation of tannin and terrific overall balance.

(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.

2014 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Haut Bailly is exceptionally polished, creamy and textured from the very first taste. Black cherries, plums, smoke, tobacco and incense meld together in an ample, voluptuous wine built on pure texture. The high percentage of Merlot gives the 2014 relatively soft contours to balance the pure intensity of the Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a remarkably balanced, polished, young Haut-Bailly. The blend is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot. (AG)" (4/2015) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample.

Bright and fresh in the mouth, with the cassis and herb flavors nicely supported by lively acidity and smooth tannins. Finishes with a coffee note."

What’s impressive is the intensity of noble rot that makes the wine feel almost dry. This is the greatest wine ever made here. Made from organic grapes. Try in 2017, but already delicious to drink."

This is another sensational effort from the Cathiards that is perfectly balanced, complex, super-rich and pure. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. This is another great turn-around effort that dated from the acquisition of this once moribund estate in 1990, by Daniel and Florence Cathiard.

The structure and tannins are almost buried among all of the velvety fruits, ripe berry flavors and layered wood notes. That said, it still has complexity and richness that promise aging, with the final acidity giving some brightness." (9/2012)93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries, spices and bark follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long silky textured finish. Very fine indeed. Best ever from here.

Medium sweet yet so fruity and energetic. This shows how you can have ripeness with fruit and then lots of botrytis. Exciting wine."

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 »

Super-finessed and gracious to the core, the 2014 presents a super-intriguing array of lavender, mint, violet, herb and blue stone fruits. Veins of cool, saline-infused minerals give the wine its energy and length. At its essence, the 2014 is a deceptively mid-weight, refined St.-Emilion built on weightless energy, tension and class. Hints of lavender, cloves, white pepper and savory herbs reappear on the finish, adding lift and precision. In 2014, Clos Fourtet is a true stand out, as well as ...Read More »

An open, exotic bouquet melds into sweet red cherries, plums, spices and dried rose petals. The high percentage of Cabernet Franc gives the wine considerable aromatic lift and tons of personality.

The tannins are quite evident, as is the acidity, but there is a level of harmony here that is impossible to miss. Red currant, sweet red cherry, tobacco, smoke and white pepper add nuance on the pulsating finish.

Resonant and layered on the palate, the 2013 possesses gorgeous depth and tons of intensity, not to mention remarkable purity.

One of the riper, richer wines of the vintage, the 2013 clearly benefits from its southern exposure and the decision to open up the canopies to allow for maximum exposure to light and heat.

Super-ripe dark cherries, smoke, graphite, incense, tobacco and crushed rocks are pushed forward in a decidedly ripe, voluptuous Pessac endowed with notable personality. A second sample, tasted a day later, was much more mineral-driven and focused, with the fruit pushed to the background.

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classic 2012 Haut-Bailly is staggeringly great wine, with a stunning bouquet of lead pencil shavings, blueberries, black raspberries and blackcurrants and perhaps a touch of spring flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with an almost seamless integration of wood, alcohol and tannin. It is rich, concentrated, stunningly supple, pure and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. This wine defines what is meant by intensity of flavor, but it is light on its feet, à la great cuisine. It should be drinkable reasonably young, but age effortl ...Read More »

1989 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 d'Angludet is one of this property's best wines since their excellent 1983. It does not, however, appear to have the stuffing necessary to surpass that wine. It is fat, plump, intensely fruity with a good ruby color, supple texture, high alcohol, and soft tannins." (2/1993) Wine Spectator: "Ready to drink. Medium-ruby color and enticing aromas of blackberries and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with milk chocolate and coffee flavors and soft texture." (5/1999)

1995 Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol (Previously $120)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Beautiful aromas of flowers, plum and licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Turns a little austere.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now. (Web-2007)"

1990 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "D'Angludet's 1990 rivals their 1989. More noticeably tannic than the 1989, without that vintage's sweet fruit and opulence, the 1990 is, nevertheless, a fine wine. It exhibits deep color, rich, herbaceous fruit, medium body, and plenty of substance in its finish. (RP)" (2/1993)

2014 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is a knockout. Excellent concentration of fruit and firm tannins. Very, very long. Fruity and intense. Same quality or better than 2010. Impressive." (3/2015) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Cantemerle is complete, beautiful and highly expressive. 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. (AG)" (4/2015) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. ...Read More »

2003 du Tertre, Margaux
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 du Tertre, Margaux (92ST, 90RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red with a garnet rim. Very sexy, inviting aromas of ripe red cherry, rose petal, mint, cinnamon and white pepper; this has to be one of the freshest, least overripe noses of all 2003 Bordeaux. Then remarkably vibrant and pure on the palate, with cabernet franc-dominated flavors of strawberry, violet, and cocoa complicated by a delicate white pepper nuance. The tannins are smooth and the finish long and suave. An alluring, supple wine with impeccable balance--and an unbelievable result in the furnace-like conditions of 2003. (34% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot and 33% cabernet franc; 30.1 g/l dry extract; 13.2% alcohol)" (01/2012)

2014 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2014 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Here is a ripe and smoky wine, with a firm, tannic structure and a sense of the deep gravel terroir. The high proportion of Merlot in the blend has given richness to the wine, with a big, fat texture on the finish." (4/2015) 92-93 points James Suckling: "This is very solid and muscular with dark berries and blueberries. More merlot than normal but shows a serious structure that underlines the excellence of the cabernet. Small production of cabernet here with 45% merlot in the blend." (3/2015) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "This has yet to soak up its oak and remains a bit raw, but the juniper and alder ...Read More »

2001 Coutet, Sauternes

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A brilliant combination of power and finesse characterizes this light green/gold-colored Barsac. It possesses moderate sweetness, terrific aromatics, and a full-bodied, rich, beautifully delineated, ethereal palate revealing delicacy as well as acidity. Although young, it is already strutting its stuff. Consume it over the next 15-25 years." (6/2004)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Subdued but pure aromas of mirabelle, peach, pear and pineapple; hints at a roasted botrytis ripeness. Then fat and rich in the mouth, with a captivating flavor of roasted peach. Impressively broad and oily bu ...Read More »
