97 points James Suckling: "This is more precise and focused with black truffle and berry. Full body, layered and refined. Beautiful freshness and form. Framed." (07/2017) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010's final blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc offers up impressive levels of red, blue and black fruits as well as some toasty oak and crushed rock, giving it minerality. Of course, the acidity in this vintage, with its lower pHs than 2009, provide a freshness and precision that is rare for wines so rich. This wine has plenty of ...

2018 Soutard, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship 2018 Château Soutard checks in as 61% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. It's hands down the finest wine I've tasted from this estate and offers a thrilling bouquet of cassis and black raspberry fruits as well as notes of camphor, tobacco, dried flowers, and dried rose petals. Full-bodied and flawlessly balanced, with silky tannins and that rare richness without weight character that's the hallmark of truly great wines, it's going to benefit from 3-4 years (it's brilliant even toda...

2019 Tempo d'Angélus, St-Émilion
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "A delicious, savory red with blackcurrant, chocolate and cedar aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied with fine, round tannins. Fresh and bright. It opens at the end and becomes chewy and intense. Give this two or three years to soften, but it’s already focused. " (02/2022) 91 points Decanter: "Rustic nose, a hint of perfume, but focuses on vanilla, clove and liquorice. Lovely texture in the mouth with chewy tannins around deep, soft and smooth red fruits, cooling menthol and spiced wood notes at the back. Precise winemaking ...

2015 Canon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
100 points James Suckling: "Seductive. The nose draws you in deep: It’s like staring into a well of pristine dark cherries, dark plums, blackberries and mulberries. All the oak is perfectly subsumed. The palate’s flawless with immense depth and power and it’s so balanced as to appear to float. Immaculate fresh dark-berry and plum flavors. Silky and deep, ribbon-like finish. Perfect. Best from 2022. *2018 Wine of the Year*" (02/2018) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Canon was a benchmark wine that seemed to revitalize this historic es...

100 points Decanter: "From the very first sip you see why certain wines just have a hold on the imagination. This has the full intensity of St-Émilion with none of the need to shout about it or push its point home. It's just effortlessly intense and confident, with flavours of liquorice, pencil shavings, damson and cassis. It has wonderful freshness and balance, and full grip from firm tannins. Complex and persistent, this is an absolute joy to taste. (JA) " (12/2017) 100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A hold onto your hat wine, the 2015 Château Figeac is pure ...

99 points Decanter: "Such a seductive soft perfume to the nose, delicate yet generous aromatics of cherry and rose. The palate is juicy and fresh, charming yet energetic with such crystalline purity and balance. Tannins are smooth but softly textured giving nuance to the flavours where refreshing high toned ripe red and black cherry fruit play alongside mint, dark chocolate and graphite. Clearly powerfully but carefully controlled from start to finish giving such a satisfying overall mouthful and lasting impression. Incredible. (GH)" (01/2022) 98 point...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Le Dome has a drop dead gorgeous perfume of violets, black forest cake, rose hip and red jelly with touches of lavender, spice cake and earth. The palate is medium to full-bodied and super intense with super ripe, super fine-grained tannins, wonderful freshness and a very long perfumed, mineral-laced finish.

95 points Decanter: "Plump, well-ripened but mellow fruit from the first nose. Touches of violet florality also as the Cabernet Franc takes the lead, and again the minerality is emphasised with a slate texture on the finish which does a brilliant job of counterbalancing the generous ripeness of the fruit. Crushed mint, liquorice, bitter chocolate on the finish also, this is gourmet and easy to love. Still has an austerity at this point – it needs another few years to really soften. These are lovely wines full of confidence and pleasure with their own dis...

2010 Le Carillon de L'Angélus, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
92 points Wine Spectator: "Rather primal, with dark toasty cocoa, black currant jam and warm plum sauce notes that are still wrestling with one another, while charcoal-laden grip strides through on the finish, closing it down quickly. Needs to unwind a bit in the cellar. (JM)" (03/2013) 90-91 points James Suckling: "The clarity of fruit in this second wine is impressive, with blackberries and dark chocolate, full body, and silky tannins." (04/2011) Jancis Robinson: "Sweet, floral and soft wine. Very different in structure from the drying St-Émilions ...

98 points James Suckling: "This is a very linear red and layered at the same time, showing blackberry, blueberry, black-truffle, bark and stone character. Chalk and minerality, too. It’s full-bodied and well framed with gorgeous intensity and freshness. Muscular with wonderful structure and brightness. Salty and savory notes on the finish." (03/2021) 97 points Decanter: "There's clear depth just in the colour alone, and impressive complexity on the nose. There's still a whole lot of Troplong strength and concentration here, you can't get away from that...

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "A warm wine rich in tannins and with succulent berry fruits, this is both powerful and elegant. Its density doesn’t detract from the fruitiness that shines out of the wine and balances with the structured aging potential. *Editors’ Choice* (RV)" (05/2019) 96 points Decanter: "This was delicious En Primeur and is even better now with three years under its belt. It's had time to bed down and is fully set for the long term. Wonderfully rich, intense dark fruits are joined by grip and supple tannins through the palate. It has hi...

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From a 13-hectare estate located north and slightly west of the village of Saint-Emilion, the 2015 Château Corbin is mostly Merlot blended with 17% Cabernet Franc, all of which comes from sandier, clay soils. It offers ample notes of ripe cherries, strawberries, dried herbs and bouquet garni, with a beautiful floral quality developing with time in the glass.

2009 Troplong Mondot, St-Émilion 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Pure perfection in a glass, the incredible 2009 Troplong Mondot offers off the chart notes of blackcurrants, licorice, truffles and saddle leather that just soar from the glass. This is a big, ripe, incredibly sexy wine that hits the palate with a huge texture, building, ripe tannin, no weight, and a finish that just won't quit. Utterly brilliant stuff, it's slightly more approachable than the 2005, but both of these vintages play in the same style. Drink bottles anytime over the coming two to three decades. Bravo!"

2017 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (1.5L)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "This estate made a stunning 2017, and I continue to love this wine. A typical blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Chateau Tour Saint Christophe has remarkable purity in its black raspberry and blueberry fruits as well as complex spice, candied violet, spring flower, and cedary herb aromas and flavors. Possessing medium to full-bodied richness, incredible tannins, and flawless balance, it’s already accessible, as are most 2017s, yet is going to shine for 20 years or more."

Its dense purple hue is followed by an incredible array of smoky black and blue fruits supported by notes of tobacco leaf, white chocolate, candied orange, and spice. This beauty has a deep, rich, powerful style yet holds onto a beautiful sense of purity and freshness, possessing ripe yet present tannins, plenty of textbook Saint-Emilion minerality, flawless balance, an...

2020 Pavie, St-Emilion 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
99-100 points James Suckling: "The aromas are already exceptional, showing crushed-stone, limestone and salt character to the dark fruit and bark. It’s full-bodied, yet agile.

(05/2020) 97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 50% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2020 Pavie weighs in with an alcohol of 14.82% and a pH of 3.61.

An estate with a tumultuous but storied history, Beau-Séjour Bécot occupies terroir that Neal Martin has described as "one of the best St-Emilion," tucked away just behind and next to Clos Fourtet. Gérard and Dominique Bécot ran the estate during this time period producing ably and transparently expressive wines that reflect this special piece of land.
Price: $239.99

98-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Ausone is composed of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot. The Merlot was harvested September 25 and 27, and the Cabernet Franc was harvested October 3, 8 and 9. Deep purple-black in color, it is an impenetrable wall to begin, unrelenting without persistent coaxing, at last uncoiling to offer glimpses at preserved plums, blueberry coulis, molten licorice and underbrush with emerging scents of lavender, iron ore, crushed stones, charcoal and Indian spices plus a waft of red roses. Full-bodied, rich, dec...

With medium to full body, ripe yet present tannins, and a great finish, it offers complexity, richness, and elegance, and is a beautiful wine in the making that will evolve for over two decades.

Jeb Dunnuck: "Plenty of mulberry, cherry, and blueberry fruits as well as leafy herbs and sandalwood notes emerge from the 2018 Château Armens. Medium-bodied, it has a juicy, fruity style, no hard edges, and a good finish. It's another impeccably made wine from the team at Comte de Malet Roquefort." (03/2021) K&L Notes: I had never heard of this property, but I just tasted their fine 2018. Definitely, in the style of La Gaffeliere—soft and elegant on the palate. Some mineral and oak tones on the nose. It really opens up after a half-hour airing. Enjoy...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2018 Château Angélus from barrel last year and it blew me away from bottle, epitomizing the new, fresher, more elegant style of the estate while still bringing classic Angélus richness and power. The 2018 is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc that was brought up in new oak, with a portion of the Cabernet Franc in foudre. A vivid purple color is followed by a vibrant bouquet of blackberries, crème de cassis, crushed violets, spring flowers, and cedar pencil. Beautifully concentrated, full-bodied, and flawless...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Troplong Mondot explodes with beautiful floral notes of red roses and candied violets over a core of plum preserves, kirsch and blueberry pie with a waft of bouquet garni. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited, it has bags of plush tannins and just enough freshness, finishing very long and sinfully hedonic.

97 points Vinous: "The 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine of total finesse. Much less obvious and overt than most Saint-Émilions in this vintage, La Gaffelière makes its case on harmony and grace above all else. Bright, lifted Cabernet Franc-infused aromatics give the 2015 striking freshness and aromatic presence. The flavors are bright and nuanced to the core, with plenty of red cherry, espresso and floral notes. But back to the basics. In 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine that stands out because of its impeccable balance and sense of proportion. I loved it. (AG)"...

100 points Decanter: "The 2016 Figeac reveals itself to a stunning wine from the very first whiff, such is its aromatic precision and vivacity, offering a cavalcade of scents including cedar, menthol, crunchy black fruits including blackcurrant along with a touch of truffles and pepper as well as other spices. On the palate, the wine asserts itself with a powerful, upright structure without any heaviness whatsoever, as the tannic framework is so finely drawn and elegantly proportioned. Its expression is certainly less exuberant than that of its 2018 coun...

Has that slow slate-textured finish that makes things inch along slowly, giving time to appreciate the rich berry fruits and floral edge to the aromatics. An interesting initiative in the packaging also, with a wooden cask that has instructions for being turned into a bird box afterwards, encouraging recycling. A yield of 45l/ha. 100% new oak.

Gorgeous expression on the palate, so finely framed with tannins that are smooth and supple, effortlessly coating the mouth and giving life to the bright cherry and raspberry fruit. This has grace - slender and smooth - the flavours just glide across the palate, filling out the mouth with lashings of limestone terroir markers - crystalline fruit purity, crushed stones, m...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In contrast to the more spartan 1996, the 1995 is a sexy, deep ruby-colored wine with gobs of herb-tinged, spicy, berry fruit in the nose and flavors. Medium-bodied, soft, friendly, and juicy, this is an appealing style of St.-Emilion … A sleeper. Last tasted, 3/01. (RP)" (12/2002)

Poesia is a big, explosive Saint-Émilion, but it also possesses tremendous energy. Dark fruit, gravel, incense, spice and saddle leather open with a bit of coaxing. There is an exotic quality to Poesia in 2019 that is especially alluring. Brilliant.

92 points John Gilman: "In half bottle, the 1983 Canon is beautifully vibrant and tertiary in personality, offering up a fine aromatic constellation of black cherries, menthol, sweet dark berries, a touch of chocolate, sealing wax, chalky soil tones and a topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and has lovely mid-palate depth, with melted tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, complex and absolutely à point finish.
