No Shame in Chaman ($11.99) 91 points WA... "great Malbec and even better price" - 07/03/2015 - Argentina

2012 Chaman Malbec Gran Reserva La Consulta ($11.99)

Luis Reginato, a real student of winemaking as well as organic viticulture (he is a particular fan of Randall Graham's writings), produces this Malbec from fruit grown exclusively in the La Consulta area of the Uco Valley. Dark berry fruits are intense, penetrating the palate as one would expect from a solid Malbec made in this very good vintage. The key here is that there is also freshness to balance the intensity, a recurring theme over the past few years in Argentina's better Malbec-based wines. (Joe Manekin, K&L Argentinean & Chilean wine buyer)

'10 Belpoggio Brunello (92 JS, 91 WA) $44.99 - 07/03/2015 - Italy

2010 Belpoggio Brunello di Montalcino

2010 Belpoggio Brunello di Montalcino ($44.99)

92 points James Suckling: "Beautiful aromas of bark, berry and dark chocolate character follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a smoky, meaty and peppery aftertaste. Drink now or hold. " (01/2015)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a lush and layered expression that shows a dark and rich side of Sangiovese. Sweet fruit and Morello cherry lift first from the glass with impressive intensity. After a few brief moments, the wine begins to show delicate nuances of cinnamon, nutmeg, grilled herb, ash and smoke. Ultimately, the wine delivers more bang to the nose and follows with a tight, streamlined mouthfeel. I would suggest keeping this bottle in your cellar for three to five more years before popping the cork. Belpoggio's bottles always stand out in a crowd thanks to the elegantly embossed glass 'B' that replaces a traditional paper label. Enrico Martellozzo's estate is located in the promising Castelnuovo dell'Abate subzone of the appellation. (ML)" (02/2015)

Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas suggest tilled soil, leather, dark berry and a whiff of barnyard. On the palate, notes of grilled herb, clove, black pepper, licorice and a hint of game add interest to the dark berry core. Brooding tannins provide support. Drink 2017–2022. " (05/2015)

"Easily one of my favorite estates from the south of France" - Wine Advocate - 07/02/2015 - French Regional Wines

2013 Chateau Puech-Haut

2013 Chateau Puech-Haut "La Closerie du Pic" Coteaux du Languedoc ($24.99)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still not in bottle (it will be in bottle by the time you read this), the 2013 Coteaux du Languedoc la Closerie du Pic is an incredible looking barrel sample that's made from equal parts Syrah and Grenache, with the Syrah aged in barrel (some new) and the Grenache in concrete tank. It exhibits terrific amounts of cassis and black raspberry fruit to go with additional notes of pepper, smoked meats, violets and crushed rock. Full-bodied, beautifully pure, layered and elegant, yet rich and textured, it should drink nicely on release, yet also evolve gracefully. Owned by Gerard Bru, Chateau Puech-Haut lies just outside the village of Saint Drezery, located to the northeast of Montpellier. The estate covers over 100 hectare and they receive consulting advise from Philippe Cambie. While they opted to not produce their limited production cuvees in 2013, they will in 2014, which is a solid vintage for the estate, and this region of the Languedoc. The style here is ripe, yet the wines have beautiful purity and plenty of freshness. In addition, the tannin quality is superb, and the wines are always a joy to drink. This is easily one of my favorite estates from the south of France. (JD)" (04/2015)

K&L Notes: Chateau Puech Haut is the passion project of Gerard Bru who is known for taking no half measures. When he wanted a vineyard, he sought out incredible terroir in an undeveloped region and over time created one of the largest properties in the area. When he wanted a chateau for the property, he transplanted a classical villa from the city of Montpellier to the site stone by stone. Paying hommage to the region when they were excavating the site, an ornamental ram's head from an ancient church was discovered and became the emblem of the estate. As for wine, with Michel Rolland starting the project and now with Phillipe Cambie (one of the greats of Chateauneuf du Pape) acting as his consulting winemaker, the wines too are made by no half measure. The "La Closerie" is a blend of equal parts Syrah and Grenache from the commune of Pic Saint Loup. It has incredible intensity and focus. Delicious to drink now or cellar for 5 to 10 years. (Keith Mabry, French Regional Buyer)

Perfect Summertime Red ($12.99) "Rich yet lively Beaujolais" (91 points AG) - 07/02/2015 - Beaujolais

2013 Domaine Dupré Regnié

2013 Domaine Dupré Regnié "Haute Ronze" ($12.99)

91 points Antonio Galloni: "Vivid ruby. Deeply pitched dark berry, licorice and violet scents show very good clarity and complicating notes of smoky minerals and botanical herbs. Fleshy and broad in the mouth, with juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors gaining sweetness with air. Rich yet lively Beaujolais with excellent finishing clarity and cling and smooth tannins that come in late. (JR)" (02/2015)

K&L Notes: This comes from 75-year-old vines on the Haute Ronze hill at 320 meters of elevation in sandy and granitic soils, with favorable south and south-east exposures. Aged 9 months in concrete vats, this sees no wood.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 A. Clape Cornas (94WE, 93RP, 93WS, 92ST). Wine Enthusiast: "Rich, creamy and lush, this is like no other Clape Cornas before or since. Jammy raspberry fruit coats the palate, yet without seeming simple or heavy because there’s also a remarkable sense of minerality and balance. Long on the finish, buffered by soft tannins. As this ages, expect to see some of the jamminess recede and more of the minerality emerge. Drink 2010\-2025, possibly longer." (09/2007)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This 7,500-case blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc is one of the strongest wines of the vintage. A deep blue/purple hue is accompanied by classic aromas of smoky blueberries and blackberries as well as incense and floral notes in the background. A beautiful texture, opulence, flamboyance, and purity characterize this stunningly deep, full-bodied effort, another great success from proprietor Hubert de Bouard. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022." (01/2007)

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 7:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1989 Angélus, St-Emilion (96RP, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A great Angelus and one of the two or three best vintages made under the talented young Hubert de Bouard, this wine still has a youthful, saturated ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of melted licorice intermixed with creme de cassis, tapenade, cedar, spice box, and vanilla. Very full-bodied, opulent, and rich, it is one of the 1989s that justifies the lofty reputation of this vintage. Extremely full-bodied, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for at least another 10-15 years. (RP)" (01/2003)

2005 Auguste Clape Cornas

2005 Auguste Clape Cornas Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $160.00.

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 12:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Auguste Clape Cornas (96WS, 93ST, 92RP). Wine Spectator: "This is the Rock of Gibraltar vintage. A brick house of a wine, with a tremendous core of racy red currant and black cherry fruit that's locked behind a wall of dense but sleek tannins. Still very taut, but so pure and racy, with the minerality blazing through the finish. Wait, wait, wait. (Web-2010)"

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Bernard Dugat Py Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru (94BH, (92-94RP), 94ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Charmes-Chambertin is medium to dark ruby-colored and offers a knock-out nose of sweet cherries, smoked bacon, and mint. This is a huge, medium to full-bodied wine that is highly concentrated and expansive. Untold quantities of blackberries, cherries, spices, and hints of new toasty oak can be discerned in its layered character. This powerful yet feminine wine is loaded with ripe tannin. Projected maturity: 2005-2012+. (PR)" (08/2001)

2006 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (94BH, 94WS, 93RP, 17JR). Wine Spectator: "(Collectibles and Top 100 of 2009) A whiff of chalk dust, along with a vanilla note, introduces this intense white. Flavors of peach, grapefruit and oak spice persist through the finish, with a mineral streak. Powerful and balanced, with a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2011 through 2024." (06/2009)

2005 Bouchard Père et Fils Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru (1.5L)

2005 Bouchard Père et Fils Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru (1.5L) Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $700.00.

Auction Ending on July 04, 2015 5:30 PM PST

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2005 Bouchard Père et Fils Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru (1.5L) (97ST, 94BH). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Multidimensional aromas of lemon, lime, powdered stone and white flowers. Dense, silky and fat with fruit. There's incredible depth, volume and extract to the pineapple, stone and floral flavors but a complete absence of rough edges and no sense of excess weight. The compellingly sweet finishing flavors of lime and flowers are unflagging. A big boy but still an infant-and a great wine in the making." (09/2007)

1999 Bouchard Père et Fils Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru

1999 Bouchard Père et Fils Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $257.00.

2005 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (1.5L) Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $185.00.

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 3:00 PM PST

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (1.5L) (95RP, 95WE, 94ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As usual, the 2005 Branaire-Ducru is one of the more distinctive wines of St.-Julien. Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux has turned out another classic. While not as opulent or fleshy as the 2003, and it remains to be seen if it will eclipse the 2000, the 2005 is a big, structured, intensely rich effort with raspberry, blueberry, and spring flower garden characteristics, stunning purity, full-bodied power, and good underlying acidity as well as harmony. The hard tannins suggest 8-9 years of cellaring will be beneficial; it should last for three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030+." (04/2008)

2005 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

2005 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $120.00.

Auction Ending on July 06, 2015 2:30 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux (94RP, 94WE, 92WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is the finest Brane-Cantenac I have tasted in over thirty years. Unusually perfumed and already approachable (atypical for most 2005 Medocs), it reveals a deep plum/purple color as well as a stunningly flamboyant bouquet of smoked herbs, licorice, camphor, black cherries, currants, and notions of plums and blackberries. Elegant with silky tannin and medium body, it is clearly a classic statement on the Margaux appellation. While not a powerhouse, it is beautifully concentrated, stunningly balanced, and surprisingly forward. It could be drunk now after several hours of decanting, but it should age easily for 20+ years." (04/2008)

2009 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux

2009 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $250.00.

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 1:30 PM PST

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2009 Brane-Cantenac, Margaux (95RP, 94WE, 93JS, 92WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular effort from this estate rivaling their 2005, but more flashy/flamboyant, this dark ruby/purple wine has a strikingly intense nose of licorice, flowers, plums and dark berries. Medium to full-bodied, very approachable and silky, this suave, very sexy wine can be drunk early on as well as aged for 20+ years. (RP)" (02/2012)

2009 Branon, Pessac-Léognan

2009 Branon, Pessac-Léognan Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $350.00.

Auction Ending on July 06, 2015 6:30 PM PST

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Branon, Pessac-Léognan (98RP, 94ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This magnificent, dense plum/purple-colored Pessac-Leognan reveals notes of scorched earth, burning embers, blackberries and truffles. Composed of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a vineyard gorgeously situated between Malartic Lagraviere and Haut-Bailly, it possesses full-bodied power, a stunningly intense, voluptuous, layered mouthfeel and abundant levels of fruit, glycerin and tannin. The 2009 ranks alongside the magnificent 2000, which is aging at a glacial pace. Unfortunately, proprietress Helene Garcin only produces around 500 cases of this somewhat cult-ish Pessac-Leognan. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040. (RP)" (02/2012)

1999 Burgundy Tasting Lot

1999 Burgundy Tasting Lot Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $580.00.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (93WE, 93WS, 91RP, 90ST). Wine Spectator: "Lovely berry, spice and leather aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with firm and silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. A harmonious wine." (03/2003)

2009 Canon, St-Emilion

2009 Canon, St-Emilion Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $280.00.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Canon, St-Emilion (96JS, 95WE, 94RP, 93WS, 92ST). James Suckling: "Aromas of nuts, spices, chocolate powder, then changes to fruits and flowers. Fascinating. Full body, with silky tannins and a wonderful intensity and super polished tannins with a long, long finish. Super refined. Best Canon in years. Try in 2016." (02/2012)

2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (OWC)

2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (OWC) Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $537.00.

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 7:00 PM PST

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (OWC - 94JS, 94RP, 92WE, 91WS, 90ST) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry and blueberry notes, it exhibits a sort of cool-climate character. Broad, rich and intense on the palate, the wine has plenty of tannins, but they are sweet and well-integrated. Everything is delicately entwined into this beautiful, medium to full-bodied, dense purple wine, which shows stunning character and a prodigious potential for development. This is definitely a major sleeper of the vintage and even better than I thought from barrel. With its 2010, this classified growth located in the southern end of the Medoc may well have m

2010 Cantenac Brown, Margaux

2010 Cantenac Brown, Margaux Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $145.00.

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 1:30 PM PST

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2010 Cantenac Brown, Margaux (95WE, 94JS, 94RP, 92WS, 90ST). Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* One of the finest wines to come from Cantenac Brown for many years, this is powerful and dense, dominated by Cabernet Franc tannins and fruits. The structure has a smooth, polished character that locates it firmly in Margaux, giving elegance and discreet fruitiness. Age this fine wine for many years. " (02/2013)

1995 Carruades de Lafite, Pauillac

1995 Carruades de Lafite, Pauillac Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $321.00.

1998 Certan-Giraud, Pomerol

1998 Certan-Giraud, Pomerol Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $50.00.

Auction Ending on July 04, 2015 3:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1998 Certan-Giraud, Pomerol ((90-92RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A lovely nose of black fruits, mocha and a touch of caramel. The palate is full of vitality: lively sweet raspberry, well-integrated oak and excellent acidity. Touch of chocolate on the finish. Moderate length. Like the 1995 this is much better than I expected. Tasted April 2004. (NM)" (07/2007)

2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape

2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape "Hommage a Jacques Perrin" Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $1,500.00.

Auction Ending on July 06, 2015 5:30 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape "Hommage a Jacques Perrin" (99RP, 95ST, 94W&S, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin is a blend of 60% Mourvedre, 20% Grenache, 10% Counoise, and 10% Syrah. Full-bodied, excruciatingly backward, and nearly impenetrable, it boasts an inky/blue/purple color in addition to a promising nose of new saddle leather, melted asphalt, camphor, blackberries, smoky, roasted herbs, and Asian spices. A huge lashing of tannin as well as a formidable structure result in the antithesis of its more flattering, forward, and voluptuous sibling, the classic Beaucastel. Readers lucky enough to come across this cuvee should plan on waiting at least a decade before it begins to approach adolescence. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2040" (02/2004)

2003 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

2003 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $55.00.

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95WE, 94WS, 92ST, 91RP). Wine Enthusiast: " *Editors' Choice* One of the big names of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and this wine justifies the fame of the Perrin family’s property. It is a rich style, but, more importantly, it is beautifully made, structured, dense, with red jelly fruits, a touch of vanilla and a fat, full-bodied, but firm aftertaste. This is a wine for aging—give it at least five years before touching it. " (12/2005)

1998 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

1998 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $165.00.

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 12:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95WS, 92RP, 90ST). Wine Spectator: "Very youthful, with a juicy blast of red plum and fig fruit flavors on a racy frame, this also has plenty of spice, tar, plum cake and mineral in reserve, as the finish shows more structure and slowly darkens with time in the glass. Only just starting to hit its stride.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2027." (09/2007)

2000 Chauvin, St-Emilion

2000 Chauvin, St-Emilion Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $105.01.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000 Chauvin, St-Emilion (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A superb wine, this opaque purple-colored effort boasts a vividly pure nose of graphite, melted licorice, creme de cassis, espresso, and wet stones backed up by subtle, high quality, spicy, new oak. Multi-layered, full-bodied, dense, concentrated, and pure, with sweet tannin and superb length. (RP)" (04/2003)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine shows plum, fig, cherry, earthy, mineral notes and medium body, but the elevated tannins in the finish are distracting. Nevertheless, the wine has a youthfulness and vigor that make it far less evolved than its more seductive older siblings, the 1983 and 1985." (01/2003)

1993 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 2:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1993 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion (91ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full ruby-red. Knockout, complex nose offers vibrant aromas of raspberry, sour red cherry, strawberry, licorice and violet, complicated by white pepper and rose. Then moderately dense and fresh in the mouth, with delicately spicy notes of redcurrant, strawberry, licorice, coffee and minerals. This rather elegantly styled wine finishes bright and fresh, with firm, highly polished tannins. This midweight Cheval Blanc lacks the density and concentration of the better vintages, but it has an amazingly pure nose of Cabernet Franc (I'd score this 95 or more for its aromas) that is a joy to inhale. For those with deep pockets, it's also a fantastic food wine, and a simply amazing buy, since it will cost much less than many other more sought-after Cheval Blanc vintages." (10/2011)

2010 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (OWC)

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 4:30 PM PST

Bid on this magnum of 2010 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (OWC - 98RP, (93-95ST)) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another amazing offering is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Chimere, a blend of 93% Mourvedre, 5% Grenache and the rest white varietals. Packaged in a distinctive Italian glass bottle, this inky/purple-colored 2010 exhibits notes of blueberries, charcoal, roasted herbs and scorched earth. The complex aromas are followed by a full-bodied, super intense, young, unevolved wine that was bottled April 26, 2012, but still resembles a barrel sample. As the wine sits in the glass, aromas of blueberries, licorice and graphite emerge. While the tannins are sweet, they are abundant. This remarkable effort came from one 300-liter foudre. Forget it for 4-5 years and drink it over the following 3 decades. By the way, it is about 16% natural alcohol so it is actually less powerful than the 2011. Kudos to Manfred Krankl, Pascal and Vincent Maurel, and Phil

Bid on this magnum of 2012 Chimère (Sine Qua Non) Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) (OWC - 99RP) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "We finished the tasting with the inky-purple 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape. A cellar selection by Manfred Krankl (of Sine Qua Non) of mostly Mourvedre, yet with a splash of Grenache and even some white varieties, it was aged in two new 300-liter French oak barrels before being bottled (in magnum only) unfined and unfiltered. It’s a massive, masculine and structured Chateauneuf du Pape that needs to be tasted to be believed. Cassis, creamy licorice, jammy blackberry and crushed flowers are only a few of the nuances here, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, incredible mid-palate depth and a blockbuster finish that just won’t quit. The level of concentration here surpasses just about every other wine in the vintage, and yet it never seems heavy, cumbersome or over-the-top. Give it 4-5 years and drink this spectacular effort over the following

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Claude Dugat Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru ((91-94BH), 92RP). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the nose is very pinot with an ultra fresh and layered nose that possesses plenty of Gevrey character, especially pungent earth and a hint of animale, which continues onto the bigger and richer but not necessarily more precise or focused big-bodied flavors that are powerful and possess excellent volume, all wrapped in a hugely complex finish. Patience required." (01/2010)

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 6:00 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Claude Dugat Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru (95ST, 94BH, 93RP). Stephen Tanzer: "Full red-ruby. Superripe, highly complex aromas of dark cherry, coffee, mocha and minerals, all lifted by a floral topnote that I did not find in any of Dugat's other '05s. Dense, sweet and superripe but with lovely perfume and freshness to the dark fruit flavors. A whiff of menthol and a sappy quality give lift to this 300-pound ballerina. Rather open today in the mid-palate, but surely this will shut down in the bottle soon. Finishes broad, fruity and very long, with no sign of heat."

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 11:00 AM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Clos de Sarpe, St-Emilion (95RP, (89-92ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Clearly a wine made for future generations, Clos de Sarpe, with its tendency for tiny yields of under 25 hectoliters per hectare, has fashioned a 1,000 case blend of 85% Merlot and the rest old vine Cabernet Franc. Over recent vintages, this wine has been among the most concentrated and formidably tannic and backward made in Bordeaux. A claret for those with 19th century tastes, it offers good purity, ripe tannin, and an extraordinary display of concentration, extract, power, and tannic clout. The 2005 is a mammoth yet incredibly well-balanced St.-Emilion that represents an anomaly in modern day winemaking. It is a pleasure to see a proprietor push the envelope and create a wine that will be appreciated for 40-50 years. Classic sweet black cherry, licorice, roasted herb, and underbrush characteristics are present in this formidable, full-bodied, powerful wine. 95+ points. (RP)"

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (99RP, 98WS, 96ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape flirts with perfection. A classic blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and the rest Syrah, Vaccarese and Counoise, all aged in large foudres in Clos des Papes's air-conditioned and humidity-controlled wine cellar, the wine boasts a dense purple color along with lots of gorgeously pure black raspberry, black currant and kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with notions of spring flowers, tapenade, licorice and spice box. This dense, full-bodied, powerful Chateauneuf is also remarkably fresh and well-delineated. It even exceeded the 2007 in natural alcohol, coming in at 15.9%. With an extraordinary texture and considerable tannin in the finish, it will benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age, and is built for 25-30 years of cellaring. Don't miss it! This admirably run estate has essentially been practicing biodynamic farming for nearly 15 years, but they

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (99RP, 97WS, 95ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is unquestionably one of the great Chateauneufs of my lifetime...Wow, what potential complexity, mind-boggling richness, and compelling flavor profile are apparent. It is a sublime expression of the art of winemaking as evidenced by its dense purple color and big, sweet kiss of kirsch, framboise, blackberries, licorice, roasted herbs, and smoked meat. It hits the palate with a fascinating combination of substance, power, full-bodied authority yet extraordinary freshness, elegance, and precision. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring, and watch it unleash its glory over the next three decades.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2003 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (98RP, 97WS, 95ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A great bottle and showing the hallmark elegance of the estate, the 2003 Clos des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape offers up a kirsch liqueur, liquid flower, red licorice and spice-box driven bouquet along with a full-bodied, seamless, silky profile on the palate. Still beautifully put together and aging gracefully, with a core of sweet fruit, it is certainly drinking well now, yet should continue to hold and drink nicely through 2020. (RP)" (06/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Clos Saint-Jean "Deus Ex Machina" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100RP, 96ST, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deeper and richer, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Deus ex Machina has been nothing short of perfection on the 3-4 times I’ve been lucky enough to try it. Muscular and powerful, with a serious, full-bodied profile, it gives up incredible aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, licorice, graphite, beef blood and loamy earth. Like most 2010s at this stage, it’s backwards and dense, and needs to be forgotten for another couple of years. This beauty will have 2-3 decades of overall longevity. (JD)" (08/2014)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Croix de Labrie, St-Emilion (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always one of Bordeaux's most endearing and charming wines, Croix de Labrie's wines generally offer an unctuous texture as well as enormous quantities of fruit. Made from 100% Merlot, the 2009 (about 300 cases produced) exhibits smoky black currant and raspberry liqueur notes intermixed with notions of licorice, graphite and wood smoke. Intense and unctuously textured with low acidity as well as sweet tannin, it is a hedonistic St.-Emilion fruit bomb to enjoy in its first 12-15 years of life. Sadly, it is virtually impossible to find this head-turning claret. (RP)" (02/2012)

Dense plum/purple-colored with a soaring bouquet of blue and black fruits, unsmoked cigar tobacco, lead pencil shavings and spring flowers, it is a suave, savory, medium to full-bodied, remarkably silky, appealing wine to enjoy over the next 12-15 years.

Aged completely in small French oak barrels, it boasts a striking minerality, a wonderfully dense ruby/purple color and sweet notes of creme de cassis, black raspberries, licorice, crushed rocks and spring flowers. Full-bodied and dense, with some tannins still to shed, it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and is capable of lasting two decades." (12/2011)

Peat, chalk and bittersweet herbal and cherry pit notes help extend an energetically gripping finish. I would feel confident in planning to age this for 12-15 years. " (06/2010)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine Chandon de Briailles Corton Grand Cru "Clos du Roi" ((93-96ST), 94BH). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red. Floral, rather delicate nose. Then sappy and expressive on the palate, with a distinctly high-toned impression to the flavors of flowers, exotic spices and minerals. The soil is like that of Corton-Charlemagne just above it, notes Claude de Nicolay, which is what gives the wine its firm acidity and limestone character. Boasts terrific tension without any impression of weight. Finishes with splendid mineral density and outstanding subtle, mounting length. The crop level here was just 15 hectoliters per hectare and the wine was aged in two 350-liter, six-year-old barrels from Domaine Dujac. Leaves the salivary glands quivering. This wine and the Bressandes should go on for decades." (01/2012)

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 3:30 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Clusel-Roch "Les Grandes Places" Côte-Rôtie (94WS, 93ST). Wine Spectator: "Very racy and persistent, with lovely definition to the plum, cherry compote and cassis notes, which are still tightly wound together. There's a mouthwatering dusting of white pepper and dark olive on the finish, and this picks up more grip as it airs in the glass. " (07/2012)

2007 Domaine Comte de Vogüé Bonnes Mares Grand Cru

2007 Domaine Comte de Vogüé Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $225.00.

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 2:00 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Domaine Comte de Vogüé Bonnes Mares Grand Cru (94RP, 93BH, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "De Vogue’s 2007 Bonnes Mares calls to mind sweet-tart black raspberry candies and herbal lozenges, along with notes of brown spices and smoky black tea. Rich, sedate, and provocatively sweet and perfumed, this manages simultaneously to preserve a saline savor and suggestion of lobster shell reduction that precludes anyone calling it a 'fruit bomb.' The smoky and--for lack of a better covering term-- 'mineral' elements accompany this Bonnes Mares' soothing finish all the way to its distant end. No doubt there is at least a decade’s worth of seduction and intrigue on hand, but here too, I would not hesitate to relish them significantly sooner. (DS)" (06/2010)

2001 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 2:00 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 2001 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru (91BH, 90RP). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is slowing transforming itself into a really lovely wine of weight, depth and intensity with a richly detailed, expressive nose and impressively pure and harmonious flavors that offer superb clarity of expression. This is a classical Burgundy lover's dream with linearity, purity, harmony and simply knock out delineation plus a subtle complexity that is finesse personified. Consistent notes and this is one of those wine that has such balance that it can easily be enjoyed now or held for further development. Personally, I would advise holding it for a few more years but as I note, it can certainly be drunk now with pleasure." (07/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Courbis "Champelrose" Cornas (92WS, 91RP, 91ST). Wine Spectator: "Big and rich, but with a throwback feel to the gutsy bramble, tobacco and mulled plum flavors, all pushed by additional dark olive and roasted fig notes. Good cut on the finish offsets the richness nicely. Best from 2012 through 2019." (10/2011)

2009 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

James Suckling: "This is very dense and powerful, reminds me of the 2005 but it has more structure and acidity. It’s a blockbuster with a huge finish, Grand Cru Burgundy style. Fresh and massive. Barrel sample. " (12/2010)

2009 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault 1er Cru "Charmes" ((93-94ST), 93BH, 93WS, (90-92RP)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Highly nuanced, musky nose combines lemon, truffle and toasty, charred oak. Big, rich and vibrant; already wonderfully aromatic in the mouth. A large-scaled, layered wine that unfolds slowly and lingers long on the aftertaste. The old-vines component of this wine featured a full 13.8% alcohol with a low pH of 3.18. " (10/2001)

2010 Domaine Digioia-Royer Chambolle-Musigny

2010 Domaine Digioia-Royer Chambolle-Musigny Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $175.00.

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 11:00 AM PST

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine Digioia-Royer Chambolle-Musigny. All of the wines from this small family domaine come from the village of Chambolle-Musigny, and that dedication means outstanding wines with a real sense of place. Winemaker Michel Digioia is the third generation of his family to run the estate, having taken over from his mother-in-law in 1999. He began bottling all of the wine himself in 2003. His wines have consistently been in the finest league in Chambolle, and this wine particularly impressed me for its power and opulence at the Grands Jours tasting of most of the wines of Chambolle Musigny.

2009 Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Bonnes Mare Grand Cru

Auction Ending on July 04, 2015 5:30 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Bonnes Mare Grand Cru ((91-93BH)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "his is also quite restrained, indeed almost shy with a muted nose of dark berry fruit and earth that gives way to extremely fresh, supple and surprisingly forward flavors that almost instantly tighten up into a backwards and very firm and austere finish. This is a classically styled and proportioned Bonnes Mares that will require at least 15 years of cellar time." (01/2011)

2009 Domaine du Bouscat

2009 Domaine du Bouscat "Portes de I'Am," Bordeaux Supérieur Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $160.00.

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 2:30 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine du Bouscat "Portes de I'Am," Bordeaux Supérieur (94RP, 92ST, 91JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Slightly lower key (only 15.4% natural alcohol) is the 2009 Les Portes de l'Am, a blend from Bouscat’s best vineyard parcel consisting of 50% Merlot and the rest equal parts Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Densely opaque purple, with notes of incense, acacia flowers, blackberries and cassis, this is a sensational wine that could easily be a grand cru classe. All of it was made and aged in 320-liter demi-muids and bottled with very little SO2, although some was used. This is an amazing effort that needs to be tasted to be believed. Anticipated maturity: now-2020. These are all exclusives of the American broker/negociant Jeffrey M. Davies. There are three cuvees, with the Caduce replacing what was simply called their Cuvee Classique. This is a major over-achieving, 20-acre, south-facing hillside vineyard just in the shadow of Fronsac.

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Domaine Dugat-Py Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes ((94-95RP), (91-94ST), (91-93BH), 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Produced from 55 to 60-year-old vines, the dark-colored 1999 Mazis-Chambertin is profound. Its licorice, black cherry syrup, and chocolate chip cookie dough-scented nose leads to a hugely powerful, medium to full-bodied character. This road tar, blackberry, cassis liqueur, and spice-flavored wine has the density, structure, and balance for moderate to long-term aging. Projected maturity: 2006-2015+. (PR)" (08/2001)

2008 Domaine Dujac Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

2008 Domaine Dujac Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $1,061.00.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Domaine Dujac Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru ((90-93BH), (92-93RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Charred meats and dark berries mingle on the nose and firmly- yet finely tannic palate of Dujac’s 2008 Charmes-Chambertin (which I last tasted very shortly before it was bottled). Blackberry, dark cherry, black pepper, and strongly cyanic cherry pit notes add to the unusually low-toned, almost brooding and unshakably persistent carnal intensity of a Charmes that could at most be faulted only for not literally living up to its name, but one that promises a decade or more of fascination and ought probably to stay in the cellar for the next 4-6 years. " (06/2010)

1999 Domaine Dujac Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Domaine Dujac Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru ((90-91RP), 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Charmes-Chambertin displays sweet red and blackberries as well as violets in its aromas. It is lush, ripe, concentrated, and has excellent focus in its medium-bodied personality. This cherry-dominated wine also displays hints of tangy raspberries and hints of new oak. It is pure, elegant, seamless, and has a long, well-delineated finish. (PR)" (08/2001)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2000 Domaine Dujac Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru "Aux Combottes" . Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Cherry, chocolate, game and earth on the nose, along with a whiff of roasted herbs. Rich and syrupy-sweet in the mouth, with hints of roasted torrefaction. A rather suave wine, finishing with fine tannins and notes of chocolate and roasted oak. " (04/2003)

2006 Domaine Faiveley Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 3:30 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Domaine Faiveley Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru ((92-94BH), 91ST). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "**Don't Miss** A distinctly sauvage and somber dark berry fruit nose gives off notes of iron tinged warm earth, underbrush, crushed herbs and a hint of smoke followed by rich, full and moderately wooded full-bodied flavors that are notably powerful and supported by very firm tannins on the serious, long and backward finish. This too will require upward of two decades of cellar time so don't buy this if you're not prepared to be patient." (01/2008)

2005 Domaine Groffier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Groffier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Amoureuses" (93RP, (89-92BH), 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses offers gorgeous aromas of black raspberry, bergamot, orange zest, narcissus and white pepper. Lovely deep, dark fruit shadings with subtle chalkiness and fresh, raw meatiness along with persistent inner-mouth florality inform a firmly but finely tannic and expansive palate. This really sticks to the gums, with a superb smoky, sappy, pungent persistence." (04/2007)

2005 Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur Richebourg Grand Cru

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 5:30 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur Richebourg Grand Cru (95ST, 94BH). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "8 barrels made, vs. a normal 11 or 12) Full red-ruby, not quite as dark as the other grand crus at this address. Reticent but wild nose hints at black raspberry, minerals and game. At once powerful and suave, with terrific inner-palate tension and sneaky intensity of dark fruit and violet flavor. Finishes impressively long, with thoroughly buffered, fine-grained tannins. Gros prefers wines that combine power and roundness, and he ventured the opinion that only grand crus can give the sweetness with strength that he prizes." (03/2007)

Sexy aromas of truffle, vanilla, nut oil and charry oak. Superrich and sweet yet taut, with notes of stone fruits, nut oil and spices. This charming, rather fat wine shows an almost Meursault-like texture today. Boillot says this will be less exotic after a sulfur treatment. " (09/2007)

2007 Domaine Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Pucelles" (94BH, 94RP, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Boillot's estate 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles delivers the vibratory interplay of floral, mineral, and fruit elements that one hopes for from this great site in its vintage. Reminiscent of the Perrieres in aromas of peach and quince, here allied to iris and suggestions of high-toned herbal and floral distillates, this lights up the palate, with citrus and hints of nettle and white pepper serving for an almost electric invigoration. Yet, ample glycerin makes for a flattering texture and ameliorates any tendency toward sharpness. It should perform beautifully over the coming decade, doubtless gaining richness in the process. (DS)" (12/2009)

Of the 2007 Domaine Heresztyn Gevery-Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Corbeaux",Allen Meadows - Burghound writes: " *Outstanding* Here the aromatic profile is completely different as this is much more in the mode of a classic Gevrey with its intensely animale and ripe dark berry fruit nose cut with warm earth, jerky and underbrush aromas that merge into very fresh, rich, round and admirably pure medium full flavors that are seductively textured, powerful and lingering. This is less elegant but there's more Gevrey character as well as more depth." (01/2009)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Domaine Jean Grivot Echezeaux Grand Cru (95BH, 95RP, 93ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Echezeaux is pure silk. Black cherries, spices, licorice and tar are all woven together in a fabric of nearly indescribable elegance. All the elements fall into place as the Echezeaux captivates both the intellectual and hedonistic senses. This is a wine that impresses for its understated elegance. Readers won't find the drive of the Clos de Vougeot or the structure of the Richebourg. Instead, the Echezeaux possesses stunning textural finesse and phenomenal balance. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. Etienne Grivot's 2009s were some of the most exciting wines I tasted on my most recent trip to Burgundy. (AG)" (04/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Domaine Joseph Drouhin Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru ((92-94BH), 92RP, (90-92ST)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is very reduced though there is good freshness and verve to the notably rich and generous medium-bodied flavors that display enough minerality to add lift to the taut and muscular finish that packs plenty of punch but not rusticity. This is markedly austere and exceptionally serious and I would also describe this as very old school. I would advise buying this only with the intention of cellaring it for the long-term." (04/2013)

2007 Domaine Joseph Drouhin Musigny Grand Cru

2007 Domaine Joseph Drouhin Musigny Grand Cru Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $1,690.00.

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 6:00 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine Joseph Drouhin Musigny Grand Cru (93BH, 92ST). Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Don't Miss!* A superbly elegant and incredibly pure nose that is so fine that it's not even necessary to drink the wine to enjoy it as it's kaleidoscopically broad and deep with a brilliant range of spice elements adding subtlety and fascination to the red fruit and violet aromas that are the perfect complement to rich, full and generous medium-bodied flavors that are a study in class and grace, all wrapped in a finish of impressive persistence. This is delicious and obviously very young but the perfumed nose is almost worth the price of admission by itself." (04/2009)

2004 Domaine Joseph Roty Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2004 Domaine Joseph Roty Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru "Très Vieilles Vignes" (94ST, 92BH). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red. Captivating aromas of dark raspberry, licorice, underbrush and truffle. Supple, silky and sweet, with uncanny depth for a wine from this vintage. Highly concentrated flavors of cherry, spice and black licorice; really fat with sweet fruit, and distinctly fruitier today than the Griottes. Broad and full but with zero heaviness. Very long finishing flavors of spice and licorice. An incredible performance in the context of the year. And structured to last. " (03/2007)

Wine Enthusiast: "A fine, elegant wine, with balanced toast and acidity, great ripe apricot flavors along with spice from the toast, acidity, citrus and a hint of ginger. Still very young, this pure fruited wine could age over 6-10 years. " (05/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Domaine Leroy Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru ((93-96ST), (91-94BH), 94RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright ruby. Slightly inky aromas of black cherry, currant, roast coffee and pungent oak. Extremely primary, almost grapey, but already boasts great clarity and intensity of flavor. Powerful minerality contributes to the wine definition and grip. Offers the medium weight and compelling laciness of texture of this grand cru. Less expressive today than the Clos de la Roche but perhaps ultimately more noble. Finishes firmly tannic, with great subtle persistence. A superb early showing for this wine. (ST)" (04/2001)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2004 Domaine Louis Jadot Bonnes Mares Grand Cru (95WE, (90-93BH), 93ST, 91WS). Wine Enthusiast: "In keeping with its place on the boundary of Morey Saint-Denis and Chambolle-Musigny, this Bonnes-Mares marries the refinement of great Chambolle with the more tough, powered character of Morey. It’s smoky, powerful and solid with an explosion of fruits in the mouth, but leaving mouth-watering freshness to finish." (03/2007)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Domaine Louis Jadot Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru "Demoiselles" (95ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ineffable aromas of powdered stone, violet, lemon, lime and sea salt. Precise and penetrating wine, with outstanding clarity, energy and cut. Subtle but endlessly complex flavors of crushed stone, citrus peel, hazelnut, flowers and spices. Conveys an impression of chewy extract and yet seems utterly weightless. Wonderfully gripping wine but not austere or hard. This must be one of the longest wines of the vintage. Boasts great inner-mouth energy and lift." (09/2006)

Sexy nose combines lime, crushed stone, menthol and wild rose. Very dry and backward, with citrus and crushed stone flavors that saturate the palate. There's a compelling silkiness here, but it's the wine's cut and energy that impress today. The superb rising finish features notes of white flowers and almost metallic minerality. A beauty.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate’s 2009 Volnay Les Caillerets is one of the more focused, vibrant wines in this lineup. Dark red fruit, mint and spices are some of the nuances that emerge in the glass. The Caillerets impresses for its drive and sheer energy, both qualities that should allow it to age gracefully for a number of years. D’Angerville’s 0.5 hectare plot is at the top of the vineyard.

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A very attractive and notably complex nose of floral, spice and black pinot fruit and violet aromas complements intense, linear and balanced medium full flavors that offer good punch, moderate power and fine length. I like the style and harmony of expression but this phenolic maturity is barely sufficient." (01/2006)

2009 Domaine Olivier Guyot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru

2009 Domaine Olivier Guyot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Champeaux" Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $170.00.

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 4:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Olivier Guyot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Champeaux". This wine is from Olivier Guyot. He is considered somewhat eccentric by some of his neighbors, as he has sold his tractor and gone back to horse farming his vineyards. He feels it is better for the land, and that he gets better fruit from doing so. The grapes are hand-harvested, of course, and the wine is bottled without filtration. The domaine has passed from father to son since the 16th century, and the vines are 35 to 40 years old. Olivier punches the wine down 2 to 4 times per day for 14 days during fermentation to encourage maximum extraction and color. This is a big, focused Gevrey, which will not be mistaken for one of the light-colored modern wines! If you like lots of flavor and color, do not miss this exquisitely hand-crafted Burgundy at a great price for a Premier Cru.

2005 Domaine Olivier Hillaire

2005 Domaine Olivier Hillaire "Les Petits Pieds d'Armand" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $114.00.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Olivier Hillaire "Les Petits Pieds d'Armand" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95WS, 92RP, 92ST). Wine Spectator: "A lovely beam of crème de cassis runs through this silky, rich red, which also sports licorice, black tea and raspberry ganache notes. The long, fine-grained finish lets the fruit play out, almost leaving a heady impression, but the minerality sits in reserve and keeps this honest." (10/2007)

2007 Domaine Ramonet Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine Ramonet Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru (94ST, 94WS, 93BH). Wine Spectator: "This is lively and quite restrained, showing more energy than muscle. Lime, grapefruit, apple and spice flavors build nicely on the palate to a long finish. Still a little raw, so give it at least a year or two to integrate. Best from 2012 through 2026." (02/2010)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Domaine Ramonet Bienvenue-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru (93BH, 93RP, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " I have loved this wine the two or three times I have tasted it and this is easily the best bottle I have encountered. The nose here is much more immediate, with a stunning mineral nose, hints of brioche coming through like last time, but with even more precision and focus, flinty scents developing with time. The palate is clean, tense and refined with hazelnut and quince, a weightlessness and poise that is quite hypnotic. This is one of my favorite white Burgundy wines, and this 2006 is impressive. Excellent. Drink now-2022. (NM)" (06/2014)

2001 Domaine Ramonet Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru

2001 Domaine Ramonet Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $335.00.

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 4:00 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 2001 Domaine Ramonet Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru. 96 points from Allen Meadows: "Beautifully expressive and strikingly complex aromas of acacia, honeysuckle, white flower and intense minerality trimmed in a bit of wood toast lead to stunningly pure, delineated and focused flavors of unbelievable length. This is refined, graceful and superbly elegant all wrapped in perfect balance and there is an almost Zen-like harmony here of understatement yet great flavor authority. There is the very subtle extra dimension of sheer class that drives this to another level. I particularly like the energy here and unlike a number of 2001s that are displaying ample development, this is still backward. Tasted several times with consistent notes."

2006 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 12:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre" ((93-94RP), 93ST, 92BH, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From vines averaging 40 years of age, the Raveneau 2006 Chablis Montee de Tonerre features ripe pineapple, lychee, grapefruit, and brown spices; piquant, pithy, yet deeply sweet nuttiness; an almost tactile sense of chalk dust; formidable sheer density; and a brothy richness that can only be compared with a bone-rich meat stock reduction. It finishes with citric brightness, richness of fruit, and profundity of minerality, and should reward up to 10-12 years of cellaring. (DS)" (10/2008)

2003 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru

2003 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre" Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $130.00.

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre" ((90-92ST), 89WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very pale, green-tinged color. Pure, reticent nose hints at cold steel and lime. Dense, sweet and vibrant, with enticingflavors of white peach, minerals and spring flowers. Finishes bright and very long, with an almost tannic impression of power." (07/2005)

2007 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru

2007 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Montée Tonnerre" Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $410.00.

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 7:30 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Montée Tonnerre" ((93-94RP), (92-94ST), 93BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Toasted nuts and lemon oil in the nose of the Raveneau 2007 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre (whose quantities were drastically reduced by hail) put one in mind of the Cote d’Or. But from that point on, it turns in a direction not possible anywhere other than Chablis. Honey, citrus oil, and fresh ginger reinforce an impression of bitter-sweetness on the palate, along with suggestions of musk, crustacean reduction, and brine. This finishes with electric vivacity and implacable grip, the sharp concentration of ginger, iodine, lemon zest, and white pepper creating a memorable sense of vibrancy. One should be able to marvel at this for 10-12 years. (DS)" (12/2009)

2009 Domaine Robert Arnoux/Arnoux-Lachaux Nuits-St-Georges

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Robert Arnoux/Arnoux-Lachaux Nuits-St-Georges "Clos des Corvées Paget" ((90-92BH), (89-92ST)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep, bright red. Aromas of chocolatey oak, tobacco and mint. Big, round, solid and rich, but I wanted more energy and lift. Finishes with big but ripe tannins that will not get in the way of early enjoyment. Very 2009 in its creamy, easygoing texture but, as with many wines from this vintage, I don't sense a hidden dimension here. (ST)" (01/2011)

2008 Domaine Robert Groffier Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Domaine Robert Groffier Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru ((91-94BH), 93ST, 92RP). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A spicy, ripe, cool and layered nose of red and dark berry fruit displays an intensely animale side along with pungent Gevrey earth, both of which can also be found on the rich, serious and focused big-bodied flavors that, like the Bonnes Mares, are surprisingly supple but here there is a bit better overall depth and length. I particularly like the intensity and underlying sense of harmony." (01/2010)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1999 Domaine Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Sentiers" (91ST, (89-90RP)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Vibrant, intensely spicy aromas of blackberry, violet, white pepper and roast coffee. Supersweet flavors are like a coulis of berries. But brisk acidity and a strong mineral component give this wine great penetration and vivacity in the mouth. Very long, firmly minerally aftertaste." (04/2002)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Domaine Thierry-Allemand "Reynard" Cornas (95WS, (92-94ST)). Wine Spectator: "Offers bright, almost piercing lavender and iron notes backed by racy plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors. Lots of underlying acidity extends the racy finish, with echoes of minerality, while the dark, muscular fruit expands in the glass, showing a weight and dimension that sets this apart. Best from 2010 through 2022. " (10/2009)

Bid on this 10-bottle lot of 2004 Domaine William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos" (96RP, 95BH, 94ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The star of this extraordinary line-up is Domaine William Fevre’s show-stopping 2004 Chablis Les Clos (domaine). Its creamed stone aromatics are followed by a bold, muscular, powerful character. Medium to full-bodied and ample, it explodes on the palate, unleashing waves of iodine-laced minerals, white fruits, and liquefied rocks. This masculine counterpart to the Les Preuses is suave, seamless, and immensely concentrated. Projected maturity: 2008-2017. Though it is difficult to fathom, Fevre’s 2005 Chablis Les Clos, tasted at an unbelievably young age, was even bigger, denser, and more powerful! Bravo! (PR)" (06/2006)

Of the 2002 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Les Clos",Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar writes: "Very pale, green-tinged color. Reticent, somewhat reduced, soil-driven aromas of crushed stone, petrol and lime blossom. Extremely primary today, but already hinting at great incipient complexity, with notes of talc, citrus skin, white flowers and white pepper. Dense and fat with sheer extract; a real mouthful of liquid minerals. Superconcentrated, seamless and penetrating. " (07/2004)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2006 Drouhin-Laroze Chambertin-Clos de Beze Grand Cru ((91-94BH), 90WS). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "* Don't Miss! * As one would expect, this is considerably more refined if not necessarily more complex with a layered and wonderfully nuanced nose of clove, anise and crushed pepper adding interest to the mostly red berry fruits that display bass notes of earth, game and underbrush. The big-boned flavors are mouth coating and dusty but avoid any sense of underlying dryness on the classy, serious and hugely long finish. A beast but a well-mannered one." (01/2008)

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 6:00 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2007 Dugat-Py Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru ((91-94ST)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red color. Black fruits, game and licorice on the nose, with a whiff of violet. Fatter, suppler and sweeter than the foregoing premier crus, in a more gentle, charming style. This seems a bit more evolved than the Lavaux and perhaps suited for drinking before that wine. But this is still a sizable wine with plenty of ripe tannins. Dugat considers Charmes to be a relatively delicate cru and thus vinifies mostly destemmed fruit." (03/2009)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2006 Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Champeaux" (93BH, 93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Dugat-Py 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champeaux displays more finesse and refinement of texture as well as a similar, seemingly gravity-defying combination of density with lift and buoyancy to the corresponding Petite Chapelle, although there is less sheer flavor concentration and drama on display. Black tea and blackberry are decadently laced with peony floral notes in the nose, and the tea and berries are underlain by peat, wet stone, and iron filings. It lingers palate-saturatingly, stimulatingly, and a bit mysteriously. Expect more excitement over the next several years and an at least dozen year potential. (DS)" (12/2009)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (97RP, 95JS, (89-92ST), 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, it displays an inky/blue/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, forest floor, licorice, lead pencil, cedar and subtle barrique smells. Viscous and full-bodied, it is the most concentrated and broadest example of this cuvee I have tasted in over three decades. It will be ready to drink in 5-7 years and should last for three decades or more. Consumers looking to maximize value should be checking out Duhart Milon, as this may be the single smartest purchase in this great and historic vintage!" (02/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, Pauillac (94RP, 93JS, 92WS, (88-91ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Consumers should take note as this estate is clearly benefiting from increased attention from the Rothschilds. The 2003 may be the finest Duhart-Milon made ... ever! A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot, it boasts a deep ruby/purple hue in addition to a big, sweet perfume of black fruits interwoven with roasted herbs and meat juice offered in a muscular, full-bodied style. Full-bodied, dense, and well-structured, this stunning cuvee is best consumed between 2010-2030.A spectacular wine, and one that could have been bought for a song when it was released, this blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. Strutting all of its nobility, richness and majesty in 2014, it boasts abundant notes of cedarwood, creme de cassis, licorice and a hint of lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied, rich, dense and fully matur

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild, Pauillac (94RP, 93WS, 91ST, 90WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest Duhart-Milon ever made? This structured, tannic, dense ruby/purple-tinged Pauillac offers up hints of cassis, licorice, chocolate, and earth. Medium to full-bodied with good purity, strong tannins, and undeniable elegance, it reveals a character not dissimilar from its renowned sibling, Lafite-Rothschild... It is unquestionably outstanding, but to my taste, slightly less opulent than the estate’s ethereal 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. (RP)" (04/2008)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Dujac Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru "Les Malconsorts" (91BH, 90RP). Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Outstanding* An overtly spiced nose adds nuance to the red berry fruit aromas laced with earth notes that merge into moderately-scaled and intense flavors that possess good volume and concentration as well as impressive persistence. The inherent breed of the appellation is quite evident." (01/2010)

Bid on this bottle of 1997 d'Yquem, Sauternes (96RP, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational Yquem, 1997 may be this estate's finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1997's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with good underlying acidity as well as loads of sweetness and glycerin, it looks to be a great vintage for this renowned Sauternes estate. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2055." (04/2003)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 E. Guigal "Vignes de L'Hospice" St-Joseph (93RP, 93ST, 93WS). Wine Spectator: "Very round and fresh, with delicious crushed fig, plum sauce and graphite flavors laced with spice and sweet earth notes. The long, incense- and toast-filled finish has lovely texture. Mocha and fruitcake hints at the end should flesh out nicely with cellaring." (09/2009)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2006 Emmanuel Rouget Echezeaux Grand Cru ((93-94RP), (90-93ST), 92BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sweet, spicy profusion of cinnamon, ginger, cocoa powder, lily perfume, maraschino, and kirsch soars from the glass of Rouget 2006 Echezeaux, which comes to the palate with unexpected depth and richness of roasted meats, chalk, and saline savor, though to be sure, the bright red fruits and spices never flag. This is positively vibratory as well as riveting in its dynamic, oscillating finishing complexity. I'd give it 3-4 years head start and then plan to follow it for another decade. (DS)" (12/2009)

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Etienne Sauzet Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru (96BH, 94ST). Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Don't Miss!* A notably more elegant, cooler and more reserved nose of white flower, green apple and ample minerality complements to perfection the silky-textured, pure and stylish medium weight plus flavors that possess excellent volume but also wonderful detail and punch while culminating in an intensely mineral finish of superb intensity while remaining a study in purity and refinement. This is one of those 'wow' wines that amazes through transparency and delicacy rather than brute force. Still, don't be fooled by the finesse as the intensity is such that a deep breath is required after sampling this." (06/2010)

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* A pure, notably ripe and highly complex nose offers notes of lemon zest, acacia blossom, fennel and spice hints that complement to perfection the round, rich and opulent yet focused full-bodied flavors that possess a seductive mouth feel because of the abundant dry extract. In particular, I admire the flawless balance on the imposingly persistent finish." (06/2010)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2009 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion (94RP, 93JS, 93WS, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A good value among over-achieving St.-Emilion estates is La Fleur Cardinale’s 2009. Composed of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, some of the abrasive tannins noticeable early on in this big wine (14.5% alcohol) are now sweeter and better integrated. Made from tiny yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare, this is a concentrated, rich effort revealing lots of black cherry and black currant fruit as well as a fragrant, firm, full-bodied personality. It should be at its best between 2016 and 2030. (RP)" (02/2012)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Frédéric Esmonin Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Lavaux St-Jacques" ((89-92BH), 91WS, 90ST). Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Outstanding* A background touch of wood frames the very ripe though still elegant upper register red Pinot fruit aromas that give way to full, sweet and somewhat bigger and more robust medium plus weight flavors that offer good depth if less overall finesse. There is more muscle and punch here and this is very Gevrey in character and style. Very solid quality and also recommended." (01/2007)

2009 Gazin, Pomerol

2009 Gazin, Pomerol Starting bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $160.00.

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 3:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Gazin, Pomerol (96RP, 95JS, 93WS, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big, powerful, masculine Pomerol with a style not dissimilar from Le Gay, the dense purple-colored 2009 Gazin exhibits black currant, black cherry liqueur, coffee, roasted herb, an exotic Asian spice component, vanillin, creme caramel and toasty oak in its aromatics and flavors. From a vineyard near Petrus, Le Gay and La Fleur Petrus, it is full-bodied with licorice, earth, truffle and creme de cassis in the mouth. Give this powerful, backward 2009 an additional 6-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. " (02/2012)

2009 Giscours, Margaux

2009 Giscours, Margaux Starting bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $260.00.

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Giscours, Margaux (95JS, 95WE, 94RP, 93WS, 91ST). Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Dark and structured, this is a firm wine. It has a smoky wood character, powerful tannins over intensely ripe fruit. Acidity and sweetness balance to give a dense wine, powered with richness and destined to age for many years." (02/2012)

2008 Gloria, St-Julien

2008 Gloria, St-Julien Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $77.00.

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 3:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Gloria, St-Julien (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stunning sleeper of the vintage, this beautiful, already irresistible, plum/garnet-colored 2008 is a wine to purchase by the case. It possesses a dense plum/purple color, a glorious perfume of Christmas fruitcake, cedarwood, black currants, jammy cherries and licorice, medium to full body and a silky personality. It will provide both a hedonistic and intellectual turn-on over the next 10-15 years. (RP)" (04/2011)

2009 Gloria, St-Julien

2009 Gloria, St-Julien Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $300.00.

Auction Ending on July 06, 2015 7:30 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Gloria, St-Julien (94JS, 93RP, 92WS, 90WE). James Suckling: "Rich and decadent on the nose, with exotic fruits, spices and incense. Full body, with so much wonderful chocolate, fruit and velvety tannins. It's a joy to taste now, but will give even more pleasure in years to come. Best ever from here and one of the best values of the vintage. Try after 2018." (02/2012)

2009 Gracia, St-Emilion

2009 Gracia, St-Emilion Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $545.00.

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 7:30 PM PST

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Gracia, St-Emilion (98RP, 94JS, 94ST, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Gracia competes handsomely with the spectacular 2005 and 2000 vintages. A slightly more evolved and fleshy effort, the inky/purple-hued 2009 (75 % Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a massive, thick powerhouse with 14.5% natural alcohol. Proprietor Michel Gracia often makes a wine that is similar to that of his friend, the proprietor of Ausone. Blueberry, blackberry, licorice, forest floor, smoke and graphite aromas jump from the glass of this unctuously textured, layered, multidimensional St.-Emilion. Displaying an inner core of extract (yields were only 19 hectoliters per hectare) and not a hard edge to be found, this youthful 2009 tastes more like a barrel sample than a finished wine. It will benefit from 5-10 years of cellaring and should last for 3-4 decades." (02/2012)

2009 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

2009 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $290.00.

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 3:00 PM PST

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (95JS, 95RP, 93WE, 93WS, (88-91ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing better from bottle than it did from cask (and comparable to their wines 2005, 2000, 1990 and 1982), this is a great classic from Xavier Borie's estate situated on the back roads west of the town of Pauillac. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by hints of spring flowers, crushed rocks, black currants, cedar and earth/underbrush. Precise and elegant as well as backward and foreboding, it should put on weight in the bottle and evolve for two decades. Very concentrated as well as velvety-textured, it is a beauty of finesse, balance, purity and nobility. It will benefit from 5-7 more years of bottle age. (RP)" (02/2012)

2009 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

2009 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $310.00.

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 3:30 PM PST

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien (95JS, 95RP, 94ST, 93WE, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As I wrote in my barrel tasting note, the 2009 appears to be the finest Gruaud Larose since their 1990. Some of my concerns about too much brett in previous vintages are long gone as the purity of the 2009 jumps out. Copious notes of sagebrush, cedar, cigar box, licorice, incense, blackberries and lead pencil shavings suggest a big Pauillac rather than a St.-Julien. Broad, rich and full-bodied with good balance and abundant, but sweet, well-integrated tannin, this big, masculine Gruaud Larose reveals remarkable finesse, richness, extract, density and a cascade of fruit that nearly hides the lofty tannins. This beauty should be at its best between 2020-2045." (02/2012)

1986 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

1986 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien Starting bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $290.00.

Auction Ending on July 06, 2015 3:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1986 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien (96RP, 95ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " Still tasting as if it were only 7-8 years of age, the dense, garnet/purple-colored 1986 Gruaud-Larose is evolving at a glacier pace. The wine still has mammoth structure, tremendous reserves of fruit and concentration, and a finish that lasts close to a minute. The wine is massive, very impressively constituted, with still some mouth-searing tannin to shed. Decanting of one to two hours in advance seems to soften it a bit, but this is a wine that seems to be almost immortal in terms of its longevity. It is a great Medoc classic, and certainly one of the most magnificent Gruaud-Larose ever made. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2035. Last tasted, 10/02. (RP)" (01/2003)

2001 Guiraud, Sauternes

2001 Guiraud, Sauternes Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $105.00.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2001 Guiraud, Sauternes (96WS, 95JS, 93RP, 93ST). Wine Spectator: "*#23 on the Top 100 Wines of 2004* Golden yellow. Butterscotch and vanilla with hints of ripe apples; full-bodied, with lots of sweetness and a spicy apricot and honey aftertaste. Excellent concentration and balance. Loads of botrytis character on the finish. Intense. Hard to refrain from drinking it now, it's so luscious and rich. Best after 2008." (09/2004)

1985 Haut-Bailly, Graves

1985 Haut-Bailly, Graves Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $104.02.

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 4:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Haut-Bailly, Graves (91WS). Wine Spectator: "This estate produces classy, fine wines and the 1985 is no different. Cherry, tobacco and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and very firm, with wonderful tannins and a long, voluptuous finish." (10/1994)

2009 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

2009 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $640.00.

Auction Ending on July 04, 2015 6:30 PM PST

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (98RP, 97JS, 94ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A dense ruby/purple-tinged color offers up notes of forest floor, subtle wood smoke, mulberries, black cherries, cassis and a hint of lead pencil shavings. There is even a floral component lurking in the intricate aromatic profile. The wine is medium to full-bodied with wonderful intensity that builds incrementally and has a long, silky, luscious finish. There is plenty of tannin, but it is largely concealed by the wine’s beautiful fruit and ethereal complexity. Given its virtually perfect balance, this brilliant Haut-Bailly should age effortlessly for 3-4 decades.This is a tour de force in winemaking, particularly for readers seeking the quintessential example of a Bordeaux that combines compelling complexity and finesse with significant flavor authority and intensity. I suppose we could see this coming as American owner, Robert Wilmers, along with his winemaker/manag

2010 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

2010 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan Starting bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $660.00.

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 7:00 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2010 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan (98JS, 98RP, 95WE, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep plum/purple, Haut-Bailly's 2010 required some coaxing to appreciate its subtle notes of barbecue smoke, lead pencil shavings and creme de cassis as well as its touches of pomegranate and forest floor. The oak is pushed far into the background and the tannins are extremely silky, but the intensity of the wine is profound and the finish lingers for close to 55 seconds. This wine is ripe yet delicate, powerful yet stylish, and essentially resembles a remarkable fashion design from a house of haute couture. This wine needs a good 7-8 years of bottle age and should keep for 40-50+ years. (RP)" (02/2013)

2005 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac

2005 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac Starting bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $140.00.

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac (93WS). Wine Spectator: "Offers a beautiful nose of crushed blackberry and cherry, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with a lovely balance of silky, caressing tannins and ripe fruit. Very long and minerally, with mint and eucalyptus character. A wonderful wine from this estate. Best after 2014." (03/2008)

2005 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

2005 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $30.00.

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 3:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan (92RP, 91WS, 90CG, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest under-the-radar estates in Pessac-Leognan, Haut-Bergey’s 2005 (a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot) offers up aromas of scorched earth, wet stones, burning embers, charcoal, and copious black currant and cherry fruit. The sumptuous bouquet is accompanied by a full-bodied wine displaying dazzling purity, sweet tannin, and a long, opulent finish. This beauty will be drinkable at a relatively early age for a 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025." (04/2008)

2009 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

2009 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $180.00.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan (94RP, (90-93AG), 93JS, 92ST, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of just over 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot (last year I mistakenly wrote that the balance was Cabernet Franc), the opaque ruby/purple-colored 2009 reveals notes of scorched earth/burning embers/charcoal, black currants, ripe cherries and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied and pure with sweet tannin, this is an under-the-radar, high quality claret to drink over the next 20-25 years. (RP)" (02/2012)

2001 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2001 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (95W&S, 95WS, 94RP, 92ST). Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of violets, berries and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, with layers of supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Very classic in style. All in elegance and length. I like it better than the 2000. Best after 2009." (03/2004)

2000 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

2000 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $575.00.

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (99RP, 96ST, 96WE, 95JS, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Haut-Brion (a blend of 51% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc) showed incredibly at the tasting, and for me is one of the three or four most prodigious wines of the vintage. A compelling nose of roasted herbs, scorched earth, sweet blueberries, plums, black currants, and a hint of graphite is followed by a deep, layered, sumptuously textured, full-bodied Haut-Brion, but one with extraordinary complexity. This wine seems more evolved and approachable than I had expected it to be at age 10. My window of maturity seven years ago was 2012-2040, but I would change that to 2010-2050. (RP)" (06/2010)

1989 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

Bid on this bottle of 1989 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (100JS, 100RP, 100WS, 98AG, 97ST). Wine Spectator: "What a gorgeous, seductive and beautiful wine, as always. I can't get over the perfumed aromas of subtle milk chocolate, cedar and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, yet so refined and silky, lasting for minutes on the palate. Everything is in just the right proportion. This is a wine that will go on forever. I love it. One of my great loves in the wine world." (01/2010)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2007 Jacques Prieur Musigny Grand Cru (OWC - 94BH, 92ST, 90RP) in original wood. Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Don't Miss!* An ultra elegant nose of pure violet, earth, stone and red Pinot fruit that will probably quickly transform into a floral-dominated aromatic profile merges seamlessly into balanced, precise and minerally big-bodied flavors that possess a satin and silk mouth feel and a linear, intense and mouth coating finish that seemingly goes on for minutes. This is a strikingly pretty wine that should age for years." (04/2009)

2004 Joseph Drouhin Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru

2004 Joseph Drouhin Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $375.00.

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 12:30 PM PST

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Joseph Drouhin Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru (94WE, 93BH). Wine Enthusiast: "Power and spice epitomize this wine, a firm, solid structure that keeps complexity and elegance as part of the package, and that will reward long aging. It may be big, but it keeps a sense of proportion, with dark fruits balanced with fresh acidity." (03/2007)

2006 Joseph Drouhin Musigny Grand Cru

2006 Joseph Drouhin Musigny Grand Cru Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $1,550.00.

Auction Ending on July 06, 2015 5:00 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2006 Joseph Drouhin Musigny Grand Cru (95RP, 95WE, 91ST, 90BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Musky floral notes suggesting narcissus, magnolia, and perhaps some sort of exotic orchid mingle in the nose of Drouhin's 2006 Musigny with quinine, birch beer, and kirsch. The palate boasts remarkable richness and sheer viscosity for the vintage – though little superficial sweetness – along with textural refinement that goes beyond even the best of the rest of this year's Drouhin collection. Fruit pit bitterness; brown spices; roasting pan reduction of meat and fat; and an almost palpable sense of chalky and ore-like minerality add to the mystery and invigoration of a vibratory finish. This tastes awfully delicious today, though it should probably be given a few years in bottle. It ought to perform marvelously for at least a decade. (DS)" (12/2009)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 La Dauphine, Fronsac (90RP).

The outstanding, sexy, full-bodied 2005 is a 5,000-case blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. With beautiful purity, symmetry, and power as well as elegance, it is a fresh, full, soft Fronsac with sensational concentration and depth. It can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years."

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 La Fleur de Gay, Pomerol (95JS, 95RP, 93ST, (91-93WE), 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As always, there is an elegance to the La Fleur de Gay, but the tell-tale flowery, raspberry jam, and blueberry pie notes jump from the glass along with hints of graphite and truffle. Deep, rich, full-bodied and textured, with sweet tannin and a stunning elegance and purity, this beauty that can be approached now or cellared for 20-25 years." (02/2012)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 La Gaffelière, St-Emilion (95RP, 94WE, (89-92ST), 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolutely spectacular effort, the 2009 is one of the all-time great La Gaffelieres produced. One would have to go back to the 2005, 1947 or 1961 to find this level of quality from this ancient, historic vineyard planted adjacent to the walls of St.-Emilion, on the Cote Pavie. Dating back to the 1400s, this estate has been owned for over three centuries by the Malet-Roquefort family. Composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon (in the past it was two-thirds Merlot and the rest split between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc), the 2009 reveals compelling elegance, tremendous intensity and opulence and more viscosity than one normally sees. " (02/2012)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2000 La Gomerie, St-Emilion (96RP, 92ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Two recent tastings of the 2000 La Gomerie both reinforced my comments of seven years ago. An interesting thing about this 100% Merlot is how well it ages. Perhaps it deserves more attention. Its dense purple color is followed by a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, creme de cassis, jammy black cherries, licorice, graphite, and espresso roast. Full-bodied, deep, superbly concentrated, pure, long, and made in a modern style, it should drink well for another decade. (RP)" (06/2010)

Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Long and tight. Racy. Lovely texture. 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 percent Merlot and 15 percent Petit Verdot. This property is really on a roll now, delivering racy and structured reds; it gives much more freshness and character to the wine. (Web Only- 2010)"

1982 La Mission Haut-Brion, Graves

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 6:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1982 La Mission Haut-Brion, Graves (100RP, 97JS, 95ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the handful of perfect wines of the vintage, the La Mission still possesses a remarkably dense ruby/purple color with only a slight garnet and lightening at the edge. The fruit-dominated aromatics reveal lots of cassis, blueberry, scorched earth, black truffle, incense, graphite and high-class, unsmoked cigar tobacco-like notes. Still exhibiting remarkable concentration, enormous body, silky sweet tannin, and no perceptible acidity, the 1982 remains fresh, delineated and super-compelling...this modern day legend shows no signs of decline. In fact, it may not have yet reached its peak. Anticipated maturity: now-2060+." (08/2012)

1995 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan

1995 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan Starting bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $380.00.

Auction Ending on July 04, 2015 2:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1995 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan (95RP, 92WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This vintage is aging at a glacial pace and the tannins are currently more significant than their counterbalancing components of fruit and glycerin. While the word “potential” seems to be the most positive descriptor for this vintage, there are some nagging doubts about whether all the tannins will melt away and the fruit will hold. As in most 1995s, the color remains a healthy dark plum/purple. One of the bigger wines of the vintage, the ripe, powerful Merlot component has buttressed the Cabernet elements, giving the wine plenty of body, tannin and La Mission’s classic asphalt, cassis, blackberry, smoky barbecue, meaty notes intermixed with a hint of hot rocks. The 1995 is still a young wine and I am beginning to wonder if this vintage overall will resemble 1975 rather than something with more charm? Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035?. (95+) (RP)" (08/2012)

1990 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac

1990 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $575.00.

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 5:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (96RP, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Interestingly, a bottle of 1990 Lafite Rothschild I pulled from my cellar for a video blog on my web site was still buttoned down, tight, and even with extended decanting was not showing as much as I would have hoped. However, a bottle tasted, of all places, in Seoul, Korea in February, was only a few points short of perfection. That amazing performance motivated me to pull another bottle out of my cellar and follow it over the course of two days. Sure enough, by the second day the wine was roaring from the glass. The 1990 Lafite has turned out far better than my early assessment. While it still possesses some firmness, and performs like a late adolescent in terms of its evolution, it boasts gorgeous aromas of cedar, tobacco leaf, cassis, and lead pencil shavings. The explosive aromas are followed by a fleshy, full-bodied wine that should hit its peak in 5-8 years, and last for 25-30 mo

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 5:00 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (97RP, 96AG, 96JS, 95ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a denser version of the 1990 that stylistically reminds me of what the young 1959 probably tasted like. Still backward with a deep ruby/plum color revealing only a touch of lightening at the edge, the wine offers up an extraordinary nose of caramelized herbs, smoke, cedar, pen ink, black currants, and earth. The gorgeous aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, plump, rich, fleshy wine with low acidity. With 6-8 hours decanting in a closed decanter, it will offer beautiful drinking, but it needs another 5-8 years to reach full maturity. It is capable of lasting 50-60 years. (97+) (RP)" (06/2009)

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 5:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1966 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac. Clive Coates: "Very good vigorous full colour. Much more vigorous that the 1970. Much richer and more stylish too. Very elegant fruit on the nose. On the palate this also shows a little age, like the 1967 and 1970. But it is the richest, ripest and plumpest of the three. Good concentrated fruit. Fatter than the 1970. Much more elegance. Long but not that intense or concentrated. Very good indeed, but not a great 1966.

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (98RP, 97WE, 95JS, 93ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2008 should have been purchased before it began to soar in value because of the significance of the number 8 in the Chinese culture (denoting good luck). Representing 40% of the production, this blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc offers aromas of high quality unsmoked cigar tobacco, lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, earth, cedar and asphalt. Full, rich and stunningly concentrated... The 2008 should be relatively drinkable in 6-10 years as it is already showing remarkable complexity and breed, and will last for 30-35 years...at the minimum. (RP)" (05/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1986 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (100RP, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1986 possesses outstanding richness, a deep color, medium body, a graceful, harmonious texture, and superb length. The penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit is a hallmark of this wine. Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic, as well as medium to full-bodied, with awesome extraction of fruit, this Lafite has immense potential. (Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition)" (01/1998)

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2009 Laforge, St-Emilion (OWC - 96RP, 92ST, 90WS, 89WE, 16DC) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From proprietor Jonathan Maltus, this blend of three terroirs, two on sand and one on gravel, is a blend of 92% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. About 2,000 cases are produced, and the prodigious 2009 is the finest vintage to date. Inky blue/purple, with notes of licorice, camphor, black truffle, blackberry and blueberry, this full-bodied wine has massive concentration yet at the same time displays elegance and harmony. The equilibrium and 60+-second length make for a huge, massive, but incredibly well-balanced wine, like a shadow of the proprietor himself. Drink it over the next 15 or more years. " (02/2012)

Full-bodied, very tannic yet velvety in texture. Black licorice and berry character lasts for minutes. Long, chewy finish. A monster. Best after 2010." (08/2000)

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 7:00 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Lalou Bize-Leroy Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby-colored 1999 Mazis-Chambertin has an awesome nose that reveals violets, intense blackberries, and sweet cherries. This deep, profound wine has admirable focus, great purity, harmony, and a mind-bogglingly long finish. Loads of tangy griotte (morello) cherries can be found throughout this exceptional wine's character. It is powerful, elegant, and extroverted. (PR)" (06/2001)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion (93JS, 93RP, 91WE, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Larcis Ducasse...is composed of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc. Although closed at present and less prodigious than I predicted two years ago, it reveals an opaque purple color, plenty of sweet fruitcake, black currant, kirsch, forest floor and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannins and a long finish. It just does not appear to have the extra gear or two I tasted from barrel. Nevertheless, it is an outstanding wine and if it is priced fairly, it should be a definite purchase to enjoy over the next 20+ years. (RP)" (05/2011)

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 1:30 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Larcis-Ducasse, St-Emilion (98RP, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This great terroir on the Cote Pavie has long been recognized as one of the most privileged spots in St.-Emilion, but it was not until the wunderkind duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt took over in 2002 that the wine finally began to live up to its potential. Old timers who remember the 1945 Larcis Ducasse will attest to how great this cuvee can be. Sadly, fewer than 3,000 cases were produced of the 2005, a blend of 78% Merlot and the rest primarily Cabernet Franc with a small dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields were a modest 27 hectoliters per hectare. This stunning effort reveals one of the most extraordinary aromatic displays of the vintage, offering up notes of sweet roasted herbs, jus du viande, black olives, espresso roast, creme de cassis, and kirsch liqueur. Extremely full-bodied, opulent, and lavishly textured with plush tannin as well as an ethereal

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Latour à Pomerol, Pomerol (93JS, 93WE, 93WS, 92RP, 91ST). Wine Spectator: "A nice, old-school style, with roasted mesquite, tobacco leaf and espresso flavors up front, following through to bittersweet ganache and mulled dark currant notes on the still-slightly taut, but well-framed, finish. Should flesh out a bit more with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2030." (03/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Latour, Pauillac (100RP, 96WS, 95ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-black in color, the 1996 is classic Latour at its utmost. The nose offers a tantalizing array of complex notes including dried Chinese plums, toasted nuts, Indian spices and black olive tapenade over a core of dried cherries and aged meat. The palate is pure power that is stunningly balanced giving a generous level of fruit concentration perfectly offset by a high level of very finely grained tannins and seamless freshness. Possessing a finish that just goes on and on, this is as good as it gets." (11/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 1966 Latour, Pauillac (96RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine of the vintage, the 1966 Latour is a classic, old style Bordeaux that has required decades to become drinkable. A dark, opaque garnet color is followed by a fabulous nose of cedar, sweet leather, black fruits, prunes, and roasted walnuts, refreshing underlying acidity, sweet but noticeable tannin, and a spicy finish. This powerful, vigorous, immensely impressive, concentrated Latour has reached its plateau of maturity, where it will remain for another 10-20 years. (RP)" (06/2000)

Full-bodied, with layers of silky fruit and masses of currant, mineral and berry character. Amazing. It's a wine with perfect structure, perfect strength. It's 1961 Latour in modern clothes.

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (95JS, 92RP, 92WS). James Suckling: "This is very, very Haut-Brion. Perhaps this second wine is like the gran vin in 1995? Full body, with rich ripe tannins, with a silky texture. It is dense and powerful. Long and rich. Better in 2016. Best second wine of Haut-Brion ever? It has just about everything Haut-Brion has in an excellent year like this. Try in 2019." (02/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Le Dôme, St-Emilion (99RP, 95JS, 95ST, 95WE, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most distinctive wines made in Bordeaux, Le Dome has one of the highest percentages of Cabernet Franc of any claret I can think of. Composed of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, it exhibits a certain delicacy and elegance (due to the Cabernet Franc component) in addition to resounding power, concentration, depth and multidimensional personality. Black/purple to the rim, it offers strikingly intense notes of spring flowers, raspberries, mulberries and wood smoke, medium to full body, sweet tannin and a cunning intensity and texture that suggest finesse and delicacy. However, the wine’s richness, length and lingering depth build incrementally in this exceptional St.-Emilion. It will be drinkable in 4-5 years and should age for two decades or more. This is Jonathan Malthus’ finest wine to date. (RP)" (02/2012)

Bid on this magnum of 2009 Le Gay, Pomerol (1.5L) (96RP, 94JS, 94WS, 93WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tiny yields of 25 hectoliters per hectare and a final blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc have produced an enormously concentrated, black/purple-colored wine exhibiting notes of roasted meats, smoked game, blackberries, coffee, incense and forest floor. This distinctive, large-scaled, viscous, thick Pomerol may be as concentrated as some of this estate’s all-time classics (1947 and 1950). I am puzzled by why I could not see this a few years ago. In any event, this is one of the most profound Le Gay’s ever produced. Forget it for at least a decade and drink it over the following half century. Wow! Did I underestimate this wine from barrel! I remember when tasting it at that time, Michel Rolland, who consults at this property, told me he thought it was the best they have made to date. After having it three times from barrel, I could not see that. However, cask aging has cert

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Le Gay, Pomerol (OWC - 94RP, 92ST, 92WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top successes of the vintage, the 2008 Le Gay, a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc (13.5% alcohol) was produced from tiny yields of 25 hectoliters per hectare. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a sweet nose of spring flowers intermixed with blueberries, blackberries, dark raspberries, crushed rocks and white chocolate. Full-bodied, super intense and extremely promising (although it is unusually backward for a 2008), it will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring and may merit an even higher score in a decade or so. It should last for 30+ years, making it one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage. (RP)" (05/2011)

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 7:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (98RP, 96ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A profound Leoville Las Cases, it is one of the great modern day wines of Bordeaux. This wine's hallmark remains a sur-maturite (over-ripeness) of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Yet the wine has retained its intrinsic classicism, symmetry, and profound potential for complexity and elegance. The black/purple color is followed by a spectacular nose of cassis, cherry liqueur, pain grille, and minerals. It is powerful and rich on the attack, with beautifully integrated tannin, massive concentration, yet no hint of heaviness or disjointedness. As this wine sits in the glass it grows in stature and richness. It is a remarkable, seamless, palate-staining, and extraordinarily elegant wine - the quintessential St.-Julien. Despite the sweetness of the tannin, I would recommend cellaring this wine for 7-8 years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2035." (04/1999)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (97RP, 94WS, 93JS, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The plushest, most ostentatious and dramatic of all the Leovilles in 2000, this wine is already sumptuous, displaying some nuances in its huge nose of vanilla bean, black chocolate, jammy black cherries, cassis, and graphite in a flamboyant style. 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 Poyferre’s low acidity, sweet tannin and an already gorgeous mouthfeel make it a wine to drink now as well as over the next 25 or more years. (RP)" (06/2010)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the more flamboyant and sumptuous wines of the vintage, this inky/purple-colored St.-Julien reveals thrilling levels of opulence, richness and aromatic pleasures. A soaring bouquet of creme de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spring flowers is followed by a super-concentrated wine with silky tannins, stunning amounts of glycerin, a voluptuous, multilayered mouthfeel and nearly 14% natural alcohol. Displaying fabulous definition for such a big, plump, massive, concentrated effort, I suspect the tannin levels are high even though they are largely concealed by lavish amounts of fruit, glycerin and extract. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040." (02/2012)

1990 Leroy Pommard

1990 Leroy Pommard "Les Vignots" Starting bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $350.00.

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 11:00 AM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Leroy Pommard "Les Vignots" (97WS, 90RP). Wine Spectator: "Exotically seductive, with amazing violet, rose petal, raspberry and currant aromas. The essence of fruit blooms in this wine and the flavors linger on the remarkably classy finish. This defines great Burgundy. Drinkable now or in the next century." (12/1992)

2009 Les Pagodes de Cos, St-Estèphe

2009 Les Pagodes de Cos, St-Estèphe Starting bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $300.00.

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 6:30 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Les Pagodes de Cos, St-Estèphe (94RP, 93JS, 93WE, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 2009 Les Pagodes de Cos actually has more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend than the grand vin (69% versus 65%) in addition to mostly Merlot and a small quantity of Petit Verdot. As powerful as the Cos in terms of alcoholic clout (14.5%), the full-bodied, round, generous Les Pagodes de Cos exhibits lots of creme de cassis and floral notes intermixed with hints of wood/barrique and spice. Juicy, succulent and remarkably fresh and well-delineated, it merits considerable attention from consumers. It should drink well for 15-20 years. Oddly enough, the second wine is superior to many vintages of Cos in the 1960s 1970s and 1980s! (RP)" (02/2012)

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 4:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Louis Barruol "Les Pierrelles" Hermitage (94WS). Wine Spectator: "Warm ganache, blackberry pudding and roasted fig notes lead the way in this exotic-style Hermitage, with lush plum sauce, melted licorice and tar notes adding more density and grip to the long and powerful finish. " (11/2011)

2004 Louis Jadot Le Musigny Grand Cru

2004 Louis Jadot Le Musigny Grand Cru Starting bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $1,380.00.

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 6:30 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2004 Louis Jadot Le Musigny Grand Cru ((92-95BH), (91-94ST)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: " As good as the Bonnes Mares is, it's immediately clear that there's another dimension present as this is at once more elegant, more complex and classier as well. An explosive nose of black pinot fruit and penetrating spice notes lead to notably rich and ripe flavors that exude ample mid-palate extract and while the tannins are quite firm, they are also quite fine. This should prove to be one of the vintage's longer lived examples and it could surprise to the upside as the underlying material is outstanding. The texture is also noticeably different than most of the other wines of the range as Lardière indicated that there was some whole cluster vinification here." (04/2006)

2008 Lucien le Moine Corton-Renardes Grand Cru

2008 Lucien le Moine Corton-Renardes Grand Cru Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $360.00.

Auction Ending on July 04, 2015 2:00 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Lucien le Moine Corton-Renardes Grand Cru ((90-93BH), (92-93RP), (91-93ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The twin barrels of Le Moine 2008 Corton Renardes are even more tender in texture than their Bressandes sibling, as well as sweeter in their still-tart fruit (here strawberry, cherry, and rhubarb). Brown spices, browned butter, and hints of caramel make for an appealing cookie dough-like aspect on this wine’s subtly creamy and palpably dense yet buoyant palate. Nor are herbal or floral nuances entirely neglected in the complex performance. A smoky, Latakia-like note graces this wine’s long finish. I suspect 12-15 years will prove a sufficiently conservative estimate of its potential. (DS)" (06/2010)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Lucien le Moine Vosne Romanee Aux Malconsorts ((91-94BH), (91-94ST), (90-92RP)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Expressive nose and palate offer musky raspberry, Oriental spices and minerals. Sappy, intense and vibrant, with superb lift and palate-saturating texture. A strong impression of mineral dust gives this wine great energy, extends the finish and leaves the mouth vibrating." (03/2010)

2006 Lucien le Moine Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2006 Lucien le Moine Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Aux Malconsorts" ((94-95RP), (91-93BH), (91-93ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Also still in barrel when I last tasted it, the Le Moine 2006 Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts plays Cazetiers to the Les Suchot's Lavaux St.-Jacques, this being a Pinot of surprisingly white wine-like refreshment, brightness, lift, and even fruit character - the last thing I would in fact have expected from the site. Pear and musk melon as well as cherry and rhubarb are garnished with mint, narcissus, peat, and black tea. This is pure silk in the mouth - 'where are the tannins?' I find myself asking, agog. Imagine a Platonic - almost spiritual - Pinot, mingled with Riesling and Highland Malt Whisky. It would represent more an expression of wonder and a further attempt to capture this wine's nature than it would be a mean-spirited jibe to say that - for now, at least - it leaves its outstanding 2005 couterpart in the dust. And it's pro

Auction Ending on July 06, 2015 11:30 AM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1981 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (90ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby with a hint of garnet. Enticing aromas of dark plum, cassis, truffle, cedar and coffee. Rich, dense and suave, with ripe, rich flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes with a touch of alcoholic warmth and hints of underbrush, lead pencil and tobacco. The tannins are big and plush, but the wine nonetheless finishes with the classic, slightly austere mouthfeel typical of the 1981 vintage. I've always felt that this 1981 was a major success for Lynch-Bages and this bottle bears this out once again." (01/2012)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2000 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (97RP, 96WS, 95JS, 95WE, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beginning to open magnificently, the still dense purple-colored 2000 reveals a blossoming bouquet of blackberries, cassis, graphite and pen ink. Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully over the last eleven years, this wine is still an adolescent, but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance. One of the all-time great examples of Lynch Bages, the 2000 is just beginning to drink well yet promises to last for another 20-25+ years. (RP)" (08/2011)

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 5:00 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1989 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (99RP, 96WS, 95ST, 94JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 has taken forever to shed its formidable tannins, but what a great vintage of Lynch Bages! I would rank it at the top of the pyramid... Its dense purple color reveals a slight lightening at the edge and the stunning bouquet offers classic notes of creme de cassis, subtle smoke, oak and graphite. Powerful and rich with some tannins still to shed at age 22, it is still a young adolescent in terms of its evolutionand will benefit from another 4-5 years of cellaring. It should prove to be a 50 year wine. (RP)" (08/2011)

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2009 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (OWC - 98RP, 97JS, 96WE, 96WS, 93ST) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel, this appears to be the finest Lynch Bages since the 2000, 1990 and 1989. According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense of heaviness or fatigue. This exquisite Lynch Bages should drink well for 30+ years." (02/2012)

Combining substance with finesse, it should age effortlessly for 15+ years. (RP)" (05/2011)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2006 Maison Henri Boillot Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (95BH, (94-95RP), (91-94ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Henri Boillot's ambitious and burgeoning negociant arm is made up in large part of many small bottling lots, representing remarkably many of the Cote d-Or's most prestigious crus. -Precision and minerality- are words he offers to explain his intentions even in a vintage as ripe as 2006, and for the most part he walks the accompanying walk, with wines (largely assembled in tank) that showed more generously and expressively than did Boillot's estate wines on the same day.

Bid on this bottle of 1957 Maison Leroy Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Les Cazetiers" (92BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "(With thanks to Dr. Reed Day). Bricked through though a core of ruby remains. As one would expect the nose is dominated by sous bois and earth aromas that possess the classic Cazetiers animale component that carries over to the delicious and impressively complex flavors that evidence both the minerality and robust muscle that would reasonably be expected, all wrapped in a long, sappy and ever-so-mildly austere finish that is characteristic of the '57 vintage. Note that this was a recent Leroy release and therefore is probably in better shape than older releases." (12/2009)

It changes all the time from flowers to fruit and wet earth. Full-bodied, with super fine tannins and ripe fruit. It's long and juicy with lovely fruit. Super long and beautiful, with fine tannins that last for minutes. Tight now, but juicy and gorgeous. Best ever from here. Try in 2020." (02/2012)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2010 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (95JS, 95RP, (92-94WE), 94WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses. Black raspberries, creme de cassis and spring floral notes intermixed with forest floor and a hint of charcoal are followed by an opulent, sexy, full-bodied wine whose tannins have become much sweeter, while the wine is less restrained yet still exuberant and impressive. This is a phenomenal example once again for this estate, harmonious in every sense of style, extraordinarily long, rich and ageworthy. Three to four years of bottle age will do wonders to make it more accessible, but this wine is set for 25-30 years of longevity." (02/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 1953 Margaux, Margaux (98RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1953 Margaux has been delicious for most of its life. Bottles from the cold, damp Paris cellars of the French wine merchant, Nicolas, have exhibited an impressively dark ruby/purple color with only slight lightening at the edge. Its huge nose possesses rich scents of violets, sweet cassis fruit, and spices. Round and opulent, with a velvety texture and gobs of sweet, jammy fruit, this is Chateau Margaux at its most seductive. (RP)" (10/1994)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 Margaux, Margaux (100RP, 98ST, 98WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I had this wine both in Seoul, Korea in February, and from my cellar in December, 2008, and it was remarkable how identical the wines smelled and tasted. It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers, camphor, sweet red and black fruits, a hint of licorice, and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging. Round and generous with low acidity, but an opulent, full-bodied richness that is fresh with laser-like precision, this stunning wine is just beginning to reach its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another three decades. A sensational effort, it is one of the legendary wines made at Chateau Margaux." (06/2009)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1986 Margaux, Margaux (98AG, 98RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A magnificent example of Chateau Margaux and one of the most tannic, backward Margauxs of the last 50 years, the 1986 continues to evolve at a glacial pace. The color is still a dense ruby/purple with just a hint of lightening at the rim. With several hours of aeration, the aromatics become striking, with notes of smoke, toast, creme de cassis, mineral, and white flowers. Very full-bodied, with high but sweet tannin, great purity, and a very masculine, full-bodied style, this wine should prove nearly immortal in terms of its aging potential. It is beginning to budge from its infantile stage and approach adolescence. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2050. Last tasted, 12/02. (RP)" (01/2003)

Attractive currant, black cherry and rose petal character. Medium-bodied, exotic and ripe. Somewhat hard now, and you wish for a bit more concentration, but time should turn it into a lovely wine."

Wine Spectator: "Offers very alluring warm ganache and mesquite aromas, which meld into the core of mulled plum, fig and anise flavors. Long and silky through the finish, with incense and white pepper weaving in and out, along with lots of buried grip. There's a very distinctive personality to this wine." (07/2012)

Of the 1998 Monbousquet, St-Emilion,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Yields of 28-30 hectoliters per hectare are among the lowest in St.-Emilion, which no doubt accounts for the wine's explosive richness. The final blend, 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc, was bottled unfined and unfiltered after 18 months in 100% new oak, with aging on the lees. It boasts a saturated plum/purple color in addition to an exotic bouquet of Asian spices, plum liqueur, prunes, and blackberries. Extremely full-bodied, unctuously-textured, structured, and well-defined, this spectacular achievement will drink well young, y

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 12:00 PM PST

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2004 Mongeard Mugneret Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru "Les Petits Monts". According to the winery: "With a discreet acidity and fine tannins, this wine is characterised by perfumes suggestive of ripe fruits and essence of flowers. Scents of woodland undergrowth and humus mingle with those of cherries in brandy and peony, later tending towards perfumes of leather and animals. Sometimes smoky in the mouth it is ample, pure and velvety. Its finesse and elegance make it a very harmonious wine."

1998 Montrose, St-Estèphe

Auction Ending on July 05, 2015 2:00 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1998 Montrose, St-Estèphe (90RP, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A classic effort, the 1998 Montrose exhibits a dense purple color in addition to a sweet nose of jammy cassis, licorice, earth, and smoke. It is a powerful and full-bodied wine with well-integrated tannin. Given Montrose's tendency to shut down, it is performing better out of bottle than I expected. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030. (RP)" (04/2001)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Montrose, St-Estèphe (99RP, 97JS, 96ST, 95WE, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The blend in 2003 was 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot (a very high percentage), 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine, unlike most 2003s, has a freshness and liveliness provided by their extraordinary terroir. This wine can be drunk now. It has a dense bluish/purple color to the rim and an extraordinary nose of blueberries and mulberries, with blacker cassis and blackberry entering the picture. Scorched earth, spice and licorice are all present in this magnificent, full-bodied, opulent wine that is very Montrose, very classic and somewhat atypical of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040. (RP)" (08/2014)

Bid on this 10-bottle lot of 2005 Moulin Saint-Georges, St-Emilion (OWC - (91-93RP), 92WS, 91ST) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The second most well-known estate of perfectionist proprietor Alain Vauthier (the best-known is Ausone), the inky/purple-tinged 2005 Moulin-St.-Georges offers sumptuously sweet aromas of candied cassis, crushed rocks, flowers, and incense. Intense, full-bodied, and deep, with fabulous purity, texture, and freshness as well as a 40+ second finish, this may be the finest Moulin-St.-Georges Vauthier has yet produced. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025. (RP)" (04/2006)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1986 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (100RP, 99WS, 98ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-black colour. An incredible array of aromas on the nose: blackberry, black cherry, tobacco, espresso, leather, black olive and loam. The palate is absolutely seamless from first impression to finish, effortlessly building layers of complexity in the mouth and leading to a very long, earth and spice finish. I can’t see how this could possibly be improvement so have no alternative but concede perfection. Drink now to 2045+. Tasted March 2009. (LPB)" (05/2009)

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 4:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1961 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (98RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Huge, cedary, cassis, lead pencil, menthol-like aromas soared from the glass. The black/purple color revealed no signs of lightening or amber at the edge. Full-bodied, rich, and super-intense, this was a profound bottle of 1961 Mouton that would have stood up against the compelling 1959." (10/1994)

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 11:00 AM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1970 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (96WS, 94ST, 93RP). Wine Spectator: "Deep garnet; fragrant tar and black truffle nose; extremely concentrated; big and mouth-filling, with very dense cassis flavor; enormous, generous fruit; a voluptuous claret." (05/1993)

Auction Ending on July 07, 2015 4:30 PM PST

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1995 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (95RP, 95ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled in June, 1997, this profound Mouton is more accessible than the more muscular 1996. A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 19% Merlot, it reveals an opaque purple color, and reluctant aromas of cassis, truffles, coffee, licorice, and spice. In the mouth, the wine is "great stuff," with superb density, a full-bodied personality, rich mid-palate, and a layered, profound finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. There is outstanding purity and high tannin, but my instincts suggest this wine is lower in acidity and slightly fleshier than the brawnier, bigger 1996. Both are great efforts from Mouton-Rothschild." (02/1998)

1982 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac

1982 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $1,075.00.

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 5:00 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (100JS, 100RP, 98ST, 98WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine remains one of the legends of Bordeaux. It has thrown off the backward, youthful style that existed during its first 25 years of life, and over the last 4-5 years has developed such secondary nuances as cedar and spice box. The creme de cassis, underlying floral note, full-bodied power, extraordinary purity, multilayered texture, and finish of over a minute are a showcase for what this Chateau accomplished in 1982. The wine is still amazingly youthful, vibrant, and pure. It appears capable of remaining fruity and vibrant in 2082! Thank God it is beginning to budge, as I would like to drink most of my supply before I kick the bucket. This is a great, still youthful wine, and, on occasion, one does understand the hierarchy of Bordeaux chateaux when you see the complexity and brilliance of this first-growth." (06/2009)

1973 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (Picasso Label) Current bid (as of July 03, 2015 5:19 AM PST): $285.00.

Auction Ending on July 04, 2015 11:30 AM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1973 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac. Chris Kissack's TheWineDoctor.com: "Phillippe Rothschild called it '...the monstrous injustice' of Mouton's second growth status. For years the labels stated simply 'Premier ne puis, second ne daigne, Mouton suis,' or 'First I cannot be, second I do not deign to be, I am Mouton'. It was clear from the great vintages produced in the 1860s and 1870s that the 1855 classification was already outdated, and that change was long overdue. But no such review of this classification will ever take place, and it was only thanks to the tireless campaigning of Philippe that Jacques Chirac, then Minister of Agriculture, passed a decree conferring the status of first growth upon Mouton-Rothschild in 1973. At last the wrong had been righted, and from then on Mouton's labels bore a new inscription, 'Premier je suis, second je fus. Mouton ne change,' or 'First I am, second I was. Mouton does not change'."

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2004 Nicolas Potel Clos de la Roche Grand Cru ((91-93BH), (89-92ST)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A potent nose combining toast, reduction and beautifully complex red berry fruit aromas with undertones of game, iron and stone. The supple, sweet and notably broad shouldered flavors offer excellent concentration and focus culminating in a finish that offers superb depth. This is a classy effort that will age well over the next 15 years or so, perhaps longer." (01/2006)

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 3:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1983 Palmer, Margaux (98RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine goes from strength to strength, and is certainly a candidate for 'wine of the vintage.' It has surpassed even Chateau Margaux in recent tastings. The color is an opaque plum/purple. The wine has a fabulously complex nose of smoked duck, white flowers, cedar, Asian spice, creme de cassis, melted licorice, and espresso. Super-concentrated, very powerful, full-bodied, and huge, this is undeniably, one of the biggest, most concentrated, and powerful Palmers made in the last 40 years. The wines has thrown off the rugged tannins that were so prominent during its first 10-15 years of life and has become increasingly seamless and compelling. Potentially this wine remains the most extraordinary Palmer after the 1961. Anticipated maturity: Now-2020. " (01/2003)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (96RP, 94WE, 92ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine stands out as a sensational effort just a few years away from full maturity. A 50/50 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine displays loads of scorched earth and smoky barbecue scents along with blueberry, black raspberry and black currant. The wine is expansive, has a savory, broad palate and a full-bodied mouthfeel, yet possesses vivid purity and uplift. The tannins are still present, but they are sweet and well-integrated. This wine should hit full maturity in another year or two and last for at least 20 more years. (RP)" (06/2010)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Pape-Clément, Pessac-Léognan (95RP, 94ST, 91JS, (89-91WE), 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top successes of the vintage, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was harvested between October 8 and 24. The late harvest ensured perfect ripeness as evidenced by the sweet bouquet of black cherries, lead pencil shavings, cassis and subtle barbecue smoke. Well-balanced with good acidity, ripe tannins, medium to full body and a layered mouthfeel, this excellent 2008 can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years." (05/2011)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2010 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (96RP, 96ST, 94WS, 90WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It should be fascinating to compare the potentially legendary 2010 Hermitage La Chapelle with the prodigious 2009 La Chapelle over the next 30-40 years. About 20% new oak was used, and, as were previous vintages, the 2010 was aged 15 months prior to bottling. This black/purple-colored beauty is revealing more weight and richness than it did last year from barrel, along with great precision, stunning minerality and enormous quantities of blackberry, cassis, beef blood and smoked game intertwined with hints of graphite and acacia flowers. With good acidity and richness as well as abundant, but ripe, well-integrated tannin, this great wine equals the titan produced in 2009. Forget it for 7-10 years and drink it over the following 30-50 years. 96+ (RP)" (12/2012)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2010 Paul Pernot Puligny Montrachet Clos de la Garenne (91BH, (87-90ST)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is considerably tighter than the Meursault-Blagny as here too there is a touch of unintegrated sulfur that diminishes the expressiveness of the acacia blossom and lemon rind-infused nose. There is an intense minerality to the beautifully detailed middle weight flavors that exhibit fine complexity and excellent persistence on the balanced finish. Lovely." (06/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (98RP, 96WS, 95ST, 94WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It appears consumers can’t go wrong with any 2005 with the word "Pavie" in its name. This outstanding terroir, elevated to Premier Grand Cru Classe status in St.-Emilion’s reclassification, is run with impeccable attention to detail by Nicolas Thienpont, who is assisted by winemaking guru, Stephane Derenoncourt. The 2005 Pavie Macquin may turn out to be this duo’s finest wine to date. This is a moderately large vineyard (37 acres) for the area, and the blend tends to be 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. A black/purple color is accompanied by aromas of charcoal, burning embers, crushed rocks, sweet, pure, blueberries and blackberries, chocolaty creme de cassis, and licorice. It possesses massive concentration, phenomenal levels of tannin, and good acidity, but it is even more backward than either Pavie or Pavie Decesse. A modern day elixir that sh

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Pavie, St-Emilion (100RP, 96WS, 95ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine remains, for me, one of the compelling success stories for proprietor Gerard Perse. An extraordinary effort made from a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from the limestone soils that dominate this very distinctive terroir, the 2000 Pavie has moved out of the closed, dormant, broodingly backward stage into an adolescent period where one can see its extraordinary vibrancy, and great complexity as well as potential. It boasts an unctuous display of rich, cedar box-infused cassis fruit and liquid minerality. The tannins have sweetened, yet the wine has thirty years of longevity and potential evolution. A beautiful wine of great mass as well as elegance, it is good to see the extraordinary efforts that Gerard Perse and his team have made confirmed in this prodigious wine. A legend now ... a legend for the future." (06/2010)

Bid on this magnum of 2008 Pavie, St-Emilion (1.5L) (95JS, 95RP, 95ST, 94WE, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A remarkable success in this vintage, Pavie’s 92 acre vineyard situated on the limestone soils of the spectacular south-facing Cote Pavie (one of the greatest terroirs of Bordeaux) was cropped at 30 hectoliters per hectare. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, with an atypical (for a 2008) alcohol level of 14.5% that is higher than in its 2010 counterpart, the opaque purple-colored 2008 exhibits sweet, smoky barbecue notes intermixed with creme de cassis, black cherry, toast and crushed chalk. Deep, intense and full-bodied with surprisingly civilized tannins for such a young Pavie, it reveals wonderful breadth of flavor, a savory texture and a layered mouthfeel. It should drink beautifully in 2-4 years and keep for 25 or more." (05/2011)

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2009 Pavie, St-Emilion (OWC - 100RP, 98JS, 98WS, 96ST, 95WE) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled the week before I arrived, the 2009 Pavie appears to have barely budged since I tasted it two years ago. Many experts consider this phenomenal terroir to be nearly as great as that of Ausone. Made from a classic blend of 60-70% Merlot, 20-25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, this inky/blue/purple-colored blockbuster reveals wonderful notes of blackberries, crushed rocks, roasted meats, spring flowers, cedar, blueberries, graphite and a hint of vanillin. With extravagant fruit and high extract as well as a hint of minerality, this structured, massively intense effort is typical of all the luxurious, perfect or nearly perfect Pavies produced under the Perse regime (which began in 1998). While built for 40-50 years of cellaring, the softness of the vintage and its flamboyant style is slightly less apparent in the 2009 Pavie than

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A terrific effort, and one of the stars of the vintage, the 1998 boasts an opaque, thick looking, black/purple color in addition to gorgeous aromatics consisting of blackberries, blueberries, smoke, minerals, and vanillin. Extremely full-bodied and rich, yet harmonious, with a seamless personality as well as beautifully-integrated acidity and tannin, this blockbuster effort is one of the great surprises of the vintage.

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 5:00 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1975 Petrus, Pomerol (98RP, 95ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most rustic and powerful Petrus of the last 25 years, this wine still has a murky garnet/plum/purple color, a gorgeous nose of overripe black cherries, mocha, caramel, chocolate, and a hint of iron and blood. Full-bodied, super-concentrated, with massive tannin and extract, this behemoth Petrus can be enjoyed but still seems another 5-10 years away from maturity. It is certainly a 50-70 year wine, with exquisite concentration and intensity, but seemingly the rough edges will no doubt be less appealing to those looking for pure seamlessness. Perhaps that will emerge with bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2040. (Bordeaux Book 4th Edition)" (01/2003)

Bid on this bottle of 1993 Petrus, Pomerol (95WS, 92RP). 95 points and a 'Cellar Selection' designation from Wine Spectator: "A truly classic Pétrus and comparable to the '88, '86 and '82. Showy and impressive with excellent use of new oak. It delivers loads of toasty coconut and chocolate flavors balanced by plum and blackberry notes. Incredible concentration for the vintage. Supple, long finish." (01/96) 92 points Robert Parker: "A candidate for the most concentrated wine of the vintage, this 1993 exhibits a saturated purple/plum color, and a sweet nose of black fruits, Asian spices, and vanilla. Huge and formidably rich, this powerful, dense, super-pure wine is a tour de force in winemaking. For a vintage not known for wines of this immense richness and length, this brawny, splendidly endowed Petrus possesses low acidity and high tannin, suggesting that 8-10 years of cellaring are required. This should be a 30-year wine, as well as the vintage's longest-lived effort. Very impressiv

To wine connoisseurs, no other word evoke feelings of awe and wonderment: an iconic wine familiar to many, tasted by few. Despite vain efforts by arrivistes, the Californian cult Cabernets and some of the garagistes that naïvely equate scarcity with quality; it remains the vinous Holy Grail." (Producer Profile)

Auction Ending on July 01, 2015 6:00 PM PST

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2000 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (97RP, 94ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of the great wines of the vintage, and certainly a candidate for one of the finest wines made at this estate under the management of Christian Seeley and proprietor AXA. Showing incredibly well at two tastings of 2000s, the wine has a dense bluish/purple color and a beautiful nose of incense, melted asphalt, and creme de cassis as well as hints of new saddle leather and licorice. It is superbly concentrated and very pure, with excellent texture and opulence. The acidity seems low, the tannin high but well-integrated. This is a compelling 2000 that is just closing in on its window of maturity and should stay there for at least 20 or more years. Bravo! (RP)" (06/2010)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1989 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (95RP, 95WS, 94ST). Wine Spectator: "What a nose here, from crushed mulberry to tanned leather to tar. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins that are soft and caressing, like cashmere. This is so tight and powerful still; it seems to be holding back. Be patient, because it will open with another five or six years of bottle age. Hard to wait. So why do it? (2009)"

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Pichon Longueville Baron is one of the densest, most concentrated wines of Pauillac in 2008. An inky/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, blackberries, charcoal, coffee and licorice. Exceptionally full-bodied with velvety tannins and undeniable appeal, this gorgeous, well-proportioned, larger than life 2008 should age effortlessly for two decades or more. (RP)" (05/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1989 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (95WS, 93RP, 93ST). Wine Spectator: "This has entered its secondary phase, with alluring notes of black tea, steeped plum, mulled spice and warm pain d'épices emerging from the core of supple plum, cassis and black cherry fruit. The long, fine-grained finish lets a perfumy singed cedar accent linger. A beauty. (Web-2014"

Auction Ending on July 03, 2015 3:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (94RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " This is a great Pichon-Lalande wallowing in its maturity. Here it retains that enticing tobacco-infused nose with leather and a touch of thyme, the palate beautifully balanced with tarry black fruit, vibrant acidity, mellow and supple with a touch of game coming through. Supple with firm tannins marrying naturally on the finish that has the texture (though not alcohol!) of a tawny port. I suspect this has not intention of ameliorating further and alongside the 1983, these are the Pichon Lalande’s to start depleting in your cellar. Drink now-2018. Tasted January 2010.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Pierre Gaillard "Côte Rozier" Côte-Rôtie (94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The creme of the lineup is the 2003 Cote Rotie Cote Rozier. Made from 100% Syrah, it’s a masculine and structured Cote Rotie that has lively dark fruits, smoked herbs, bacon fat and searing minerality, as well as medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Youthful, and just at the early stages of maturity, it’s an impressive bottle of wine that has another decade or more of longevity. (JD)" (04/2014)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Pierre Usseglio "Cuvée de Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100RP, 94ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 1,800 cases of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Mon Aieul (100% tank-aged Grenache). It represents an awesome naked/virginal expression of Grenache from three vineyard parcels planted in sand, clay, and limestone soils. After tasting this wine on five separate occasions, I can state with certainty, it has the most saturated color of any Mon Aieul produced to date. Moreover, its perfume of blueberry liqueur, black raspberries, licorice, roasted meat juices, and lavender is incredible. Full-bodied power, a multilayered mouthfeel, tremendous purity, and awesome concentration put this wine in a class by itself. This sensational Chateauneuf du Pape is still very young, and 3-4 years of cellaring is required. It should be a modern day legend and last for nearly two decades. (RP)" (10/2009)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (100RP, 98JS, 96ST, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An amazing wine in every sense, this classic, full-bodied Pauillac is the quintessential Pontet Canet from proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who continues to reduce yields and farms his vineyards biodynamically a rarity in Bordeaux. Black as a moonless night, the 2009 Pontet Canet offers up notes of incense, graphite, smoke, licorice, creme de cassis and blackberries. A wine of irrefutable purity, laser-like precision, colossal weight and richness, and sensational freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking that is capable of lasting 50 or more years. The tannins are elevated, but they are sweet and beautifully integrated as are the acidity, wood and alcohol (which must be in excess of 14%). This vineyard, which is situated on the high plateau of Pauillac adjacent to Mouton Rothschild, appears to have done everything perfectly in 2009. This cuvee should shut down in the cellar an

Elegant, deep, and silky-textured, this medium to full-bodied beauty is immensely concentrated, pure, packed with apple flavors, and astoundingly long in the finish. Louis Roederer does not display a disgorgement date or consumer friendly lot number on its non-vintage Brut. This is regrettable as it has consistently been one of the finer bottlings in this category. (PR)" (12/2005)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The all-time greatest wine I have ever tasted from Saint-Pierre, this estate, the smallest of the grand cru classes of St.-Julien, has an opaque purple color and a spectacular nose of subtle charcoal, creme de cassis, blackberry, and incense. Full-bodied, with striking intensity and flamboyantly rich, exuberant flavors bursting with extract, the St. Pierre has no hard edges, but rather massive, incredibly well-endowed blockbuster style, which should prove to be monumental. Give it 6-8 years to take on more definition and calm down, but this is a 30- to 40-year wine. Bravo! (RP)" (02/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Simon Bize et Fils Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru "Les Fournaux" ((91-94BH), 91RP). Allen Meadows - Burghound: " *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* While the aromatic profile is similar, this doesn't offer quite the same level of aromatic refinement as the Guettes but it's even more complex. The rich, powerful and opulent big-bodied flavors possess a taut muscularity and seemingly endless reserves of dry extract that relegate the otherwise very firm tannic spine to the background. This is not an elegant Savigny but it will live for years." (05/2011)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest wine ever made by proprietors Daniel and Florence Cathiard, the 2009 Smith-Haut-Lafitte exhibits an opaque blue/purple color in addition to a glorious nose of acacia flowers, licorice, charcoal, blueberries, black raspberries, lead pencil shavings and incense. This massive, extraordinarily rich, unctuously textured wine may be the most concentrated effort produced to date, although the 2000, 2005 and 2010 are nearly as prodigious. A gorgeous expression of Pessac-Leognan with sweet tannin, emerging charm and delicacy, and considerable power, depth, richness and authority, it should age effortlessly for 30-40+ years. Bravo!"

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.

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 1:00 PM PST

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2010 Stéphane Othéguy St-Joseph. According to importer Wine Traditions: "Since 1994, Stéphane Otheguy has leased 1.5 hectares of vineyards from Vincent Gasse that are divided between the three northern Rhône appellations of Côte Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint Joseph ... Otheguy is a member of Nature et Progres, an organization that oversees and certifies organic farming. The vineyards that Stéphane cultivates are among the most difficult in France to farm organically. They are extremely steep and rocky, making the use of machinery impossible and requiring a great deal of intensive manual labor ... The Saint Joseph vineyard is also near the medieval town of Malleval. This is the very northern part of the appellation and the vineyard is particularly granitic. The firmness and structure of this wine show its potential for aging."

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1995 Taittinger "Comtes de Champagne" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (97ST, 96RP, 95WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale, green-tinged color. Incredible shiver-producing 99-point nose combines peach, lemon, iodine and steely, petrolly, slatey soil tones; I was reminded of Chevalier-Montrachet and great Mosel riesling. Full and creamy-smooth but extremely young. This brilliantly minerally wine seems to thicken and intensify after 10 or 15 seconds in the mouth, offering layer upon layer of soil tones. A superconcentrated Champagne that completely avoids the heaviness shown by some '95s." (12/2002)

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Vieux-Château-Certan, Pomerol (93RP, 92WS, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This bottle is not quite in the same league as ones tasted two or three years ago, but the ’95 remains one of Alexandre’s standout wines of that decade. Here, it has a haunting bouquet whereby the Cabernet Franc component is more conspicuous than before, essentially with more Pomerol character developing. There are touches of blackberry, mint and cassis with a meaty element developing in the glass. The palate has plenty of sweet red cherry and boysenberry on the entry, the oak now completely absorbed and with a slightly unruly, almost Rioja-like finish! Hedonistic VCC! Drink 2017-2035. Tasted October 2012. (Neal Martin's Wine Journal)" (09/2013)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2001 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana (94RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep, dark sensations of smoke, tar and scorched earth emerge from the powerful 2001 Solaia. This fresh, vibrant offering is packed with dense ripe fruit. This is an especially rich, heavy style of Solaia that lacks the subtlety and grace of the finest vintages. Still, in 2001 Solaia is a more complete wine than Tignanello. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021. (AG)" (01/2009)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2001 Arnaldo Caprai Sagrantino di Montefalco "25 Anni" (95RP, 93WE, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Montefalco Sagrantino 25 Anni, the selection but 50,000 bottles worth, is warmer, ampler, and decisively more powerful on the nose, richer and fuller in flavor than the regular bottling, but with a velvet in the texture that makes it already approachable. There are, nonetheless, easily 15 years of exceptional drinking ahead. (DT)" (04/2006)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2001 Cerbaiona Brunello di Montalcino (96RP, 96ST, 91WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What a joy it is to taste Molinari’s 2001 Brunello di Montalcino. A dark, translucent ruby, it opens with a profound, deeply expressive nose followed by notes of licorice, tar, black cherries and smoke that take on new dimensions of complexity as this great wine sits in the glass. Deceptively medium in body, it shows plenty of vibrant fruit, structure and fine, noble tannins which insure it will still be a magical wine in 15 years and likely beyond. This Brunello has been nothing short of stunning on the two occasions I’ve tasted it so far and it is undoubtedly one of the vintage’s unqualified successes. It is highly recommended. Recent bottles of the 1999 and 1990 have also been immensely enjoyable. (AG)" (12/2006)

Auction Ending on July 02, 2015 1:30 PM PST

Bid on this bottle of 1998 Gaja "Sperss" Nebbiolo Langhe (95RP, 95ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the things I have learned over the years is that you can count on Angelo Gaja to make a strong showing in just about any tasting. Yes, I know, Sperss is not Barolo (a small percentage of Barbera is added), but at its core the wine captures the essence of Serralunga and is as representative of these hillside vineyards as any Barolo. Dark tar, smoke, leather, spices, menthol and black cherries all make an appearance in this muscular, full-throttle wine. While the vast majority of 1998 Barolos can be enjoyed today, the 1998 Sperss could use another few years in the cellar. It isn't a crime to open a bottle today, but this is one of the few 1998s that still has upside potential. Simply put, the 1998 Sperss is a jewel. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2023. (AG)" (03/2009)

Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** Gaja’s classic Barbaresco is gorgeous in 2010, showing an intense perfume of violet, earth and ripe red fruits punctuated by balsamic notes. The palate delivers rich wild cherry notes layered with mint, cinnamon and eucalyptus. This is structured and elegant and will develop more complexity over time. Drink this after 2018." (09/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 1978 Giacomo Borgogno & Figli Barbaresco Riserva. Antonio Galloni: "A bottle of the 1978 Borgogno Barolo (library release) was a late substitute for a corked bottle from Brovia. To be honest, I am not especially fond of these re-releases from Borgogno as they typically deliver very little vintage quality, but this was a perfectly decent bottle that was among the finest examples I have had.

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello "Monprivato" Barolo (96AG, 96RP, 92ST, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mascarello’s 2004 Barolo Monprivato is an explosive wine with an almost Pinot-like expression of purity in its fruit. This round, sweet Barolo is extremely primary at this stage, with tons of dense fruit that almost cover the wine’s tannins completely. Subtle overtones of roses and tar develop in the glass, rounding out this majestic wine. Monprivato is one of the world’s very finest values in collectible, age-worthy wine, and the 2004 is another classic in the making. I was blown away by this wine’s sheer balance and harmony, both of which are remarkable considering the wine’s age. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2034." (10/2008)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Massolino "Parafada" Barolo (93RP, 92W&S, 91WE, 91WS, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Barolo Parafada is gorgeous in this vintage. The Parafada is the only Barolo here that sees French oak, and although the estate has lowered the percentage of new oak, the smaller barrels give this wine an explosive quality that is all its own. In 2005 the Parafada is all about textural richness rather than delineation, but it reveals an enveloping, sensual personality with attractive warmth that carries through all the way to the long, smooth finish. This beautifully balanced, sublime Barolo is another wonderful effort from the Massolino brothers. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025. " (04/2009)

Of the 1985 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco,Praise from Antonio Galloni writes: "Produttori del Barbaresco is one of the few estates in the world that continues to produce fine, age worthy wines at consumer-friendly prices. Although the Produttori's Barbarescos - the Riservas in particular - age extremely well, until recently the wines haven't been considered collectible. Because of their reasonable prices, most of the wines have long been drunk up by the estate's loyal supporters, making older vintages nearly impossible to source, even in the secondary market. This tasting provided an extraordinary opportunity to get a progress report on 21of the estate's single-vineyard Barbarescos. The wines spanned 5 importan

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (97ST, 97WE, 94JS, 94WS, 93RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Captivatingly intense yet refined aromas of ripe red cherry, mint, smoke and black truffle, complicated by lovely mineral and floral elements. Ripe, rich and velvety on entry, then concentrated in the middle, with flavors of red cherry, cassis, spices, bay leaf, dark chocolate and espresso. Amazingly well balanced and fresh wine, with sound, bright acids supplying wonderful lift and precision and smooth, noble tannins adding considerable power and grace. The finish goes on for minutes, highlighted by an enchanting floral-mineral quality; in my experience, the appearance of this strong floral component (in the absence of herbal or peppery aromas and flavors more typical of lesser vintages) at this early stage of development is typical of the greatest versions of Sassicaia. One of the top dozen Sassicaia bottlings ever." (01/2011

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For the first time I preferred the Cabernet/Merlot blend to the all- Merlot wine, and there can be few doubts that the 2001 Giusto di Notri is a stunning wine. A blackish ruby/purple with a fabulous nose of textbook Cabernet aromas, black currants and blackberries, graphite, river gravel, and sweet herbs, its potent, dense, and packed palate displays flavors of perfect poise, grace and power intertwined and intermingled, shape and grip at the highest level from the initial explosive notes to the resonant, sweet finish.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino (96JS, 96RP, 94WE, 93WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " In the first flight of five, #3 had by far the darkest color. Deep, rich, sweet, fruit-filled, and oaky nose is very sexy and dramatic. Lots of black cherry, pepper, minerals, leather, and chocolate. Equally dramatic in the mouth; clearly a youthful Brunello in the modern camp. We are particularly impressed with this wine’s mouth feel, which envelops the palate. Big and brawny with tannin to shed and very good acidity. Long, powerful, consistent finish. Already impressive, yet a great candidate for the cellar! Not to everyone’s taste, still, half the room fell in love with #3. (Executive Wine Seminar)" (03/2012)

This is the best Fonseca since 1977, and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing, with masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor. Smells like fermenting berries, boasting loads of crushed grape, violet and berry character. Big, full-bodied and very sweet, with tons of tannins and a sweet finish. Tannic and huge, it's a long-term, great Port. " (04/1997)

Of the 1997 Noon Shiraz Reserve,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 1997 Shiraz Reserve comes close to resembling a dry vintage port. One of the most concentrated wines I have ever tasted (reminiscent of the Clarendon Hills Astralis), yields were not low at 3.5 tons per acre, but the 35-year old vine age and sur-maturite of this wine have resulted in something special. It boasts an opaque black/purple color, followed by a sumptuous nose of licorice, Asian spices, tar, and concentrated blackberry fruit. Thick in the mouth, with remarkably full body and surprising balance, the alcohol (15.8%), tannin, and acidity are lost in the cascades of fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2025. A name to watch for is Drew Noon, who has taken over his father's winery, and apparently hit the bull's eye with everything I

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2001 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia (98RP, 94ST, 93WE, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It is always a treat to taste Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds’ Grange cuvee (the word Hermitage has been dropped because of legal issues). The 2001 Grange is one of the few vintages of this cuvee to be composed of 100% Shiraz (the others being 1951, 1952, 1963, 1999, and 2000). Aged 17 months in 100% American oak, and tipping the scales at 14.5% alcohol, the 2001 is undeniably one of the top examples of this wine. At this stage, it appears to eclipse the 1998 and 1996. Inky/blue/purple to the rim, with a stunning perfume of blueberries, blackberries, chocolate, graphite, and earth, it boasts good acidity, huge tannins, magnificent concentration, and a multilayered, textured mouthfeel. It is a big, but impeccably well-balanced Shiraz that should shed some of its structure and tannin over the next 4-5 years, and be at its best between 2010-2030+. (98+

It represents Spain's version of Comte de Vogue's Musigny...in a top vintage. Aromas of spice box, violets, raspberries, blackberries, plums, cherries, and an undeniable minerality are found in this structured, ripe, phenomenally intense red.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2001 Pintia, Toro (95RP, 92ST, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 80,000 bottles of this wine, a project of Vega Sicilia’s owners. The spectacular 2001 boasts an inky/purple color in addition to wonderful aromas of creme de cassis, melted licorice, truffles, and smoky, toasty oak. Intensely concentrated but not overdone, this voluptuously thick, rich red possesses fine acidity as well as well-integrated, sweet tannin. It will offer a sumptuous mouthful of wine over the next 7-8 years." (04/2004)
