2016 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac
Top Pick!
100 points Wine Enthusiast: "A voluptuous wine, this is rich and fruity yet properly balanced by a magnificent structure. Pure, crisp and packed with a black currant flavor, this will be a remarkable wine as it develops. Still young, it needs many years to develop. *Top 100 Cellar Selections 2019, Editors' Choice* (RV)" (05/2019) 99 points Vinous: "The 2016 Pontet-Canet is absolutely breathtaking. Powerful, ample and racy in the glass, the 2016 is one of the most exquisitely well-balanced young Pontet-Canets I can remember tasting. Savory, high-toned a...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The spectacular 2003 Pontet Canet is still incredibly young and vigorous. This full-bodied classic boasts a dense purple color as well as a superb nose of graphite, creme de cassis, forest floor, licorice and a hint of truffles, low acidity, and extravagant richness. Most of the tannins have been resolved in this superstar of the vintage. It should continue to drink well for 10-15+ years. (RP) 95+" (08/2014) 93 points James Suckling: "Pure ripe fruit on the nose with raspberries and blueberries. Full bodied, wi...

96 points James Suckling: "I love the nose of cedar and fruit, with hints of sweet tobacco and plums. Full and round, with pretty dense fruit and a long, silky finish. Complex and beautiful. You could drink it now, but I would still wait. This continues to evolve in the glass, showing notes of porcini. This could be the new 1982." (04/2012) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sitting next to my former colleague, Pierre Antoine Rovani, at one of the tastings, he commented that he didn’t like the striking green note in the aromatics of this wine, w...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The best since the 1990, the 2000 Pichon-Longueville Baron is just now starting to shed some baby fat and develop additional complexity and layers. This still ruby/plum-colored beauty boasts a phenomenal nose of blackcurrants, tobacco leaf, lead pencil shavings, and new saddle leather. It’s deep, full-bodied, and sexy, with incredible amounts of texture and opulence that keeps you coming back to the glass. It makes a mockery of so many Bordeaux today that are made in a so-called elegant style yet lack the fat, richness, and densit...

100 points James Suckling: "Exquisite purity of blackcurrants, raspberries and some citrus. The aromas flow from the glass. Full-bodied with seamless tannins that coat the palate and then fall into the center, to deliver a thoroughly refined and harmonious young red. Endless finish. 86% cabernet sauvignon. This is the new 1959, one of the legendary vintages of Mouton. Try after 2026." (01/2021) 100 points Decanter: "This has so much tannic power, with density, layers and structure along with layers of blackberry, liquorice, baked earth, cigar box and t...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Château Grand Puy Lacoste is an exceptional wine from Xavier Borie. It has a brilliant nose of blackberry, crushed stone, graphite and cedar. Putting it to one side for ten to 15 minutes reveals subtle mint-like aromas that whisk you straight to Pauillac. The palate is smooth and silky, cloaking the tannic frame of this GPL so that you barely notice it. But that will stand it in good stead for the long-term, the cornerstone of all great wines from this estate. Then there is that hint of spice on the afte...

2018 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (1.5L) 6-pack in OWC
Top Pick!
98 points Decanter: "Lovely grilled and graphite notes right off the bat; this is big and muscular, and extremely Pauillac. There is grace here too, with raspberry purée, cassis, fig and blackberry fruits set against charcoal and fine tannins that quickly build up to suggest how well this will age. 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 60% new oak used. 13% press wine. 3.75pH, 88IPT – higher even than the 80IPT in 2016. (JA)" (11/2020) 98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse De Lalande is a monster of a wine with an almost C...

96 points Decanter: "This is an extremely successful Clerc Milon in a run of great vintages at the property. Lovely purity, clear big tannins, and real poise and tension. Persistent, succulent, full of cassis, liquorice and crushed mint. Seriously impressive and will go the distance. Harvest from 17 September to 10 October. Blend completed by 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Carmenère. (JA)" (11/2020) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This opulent wine is as bold with its fruit as with its tannins. The initial velvet texture masks the dense structure that will allow i...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderfully ripe and decadent, with tobacco, meat and ripe berry aromas, with hints of currants. Full-bodied, and very velvety, with unctuous fruit flavors. Long and exotic aftertaste. Terrific wine. (JS)" (03/2003) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A brilliant second wine, the 2000 Carruades de Lafite (51.4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42.3% Merlot, 4.9% Cabernet Franc, and 1.4% Petit Verdot), aged in 10-15% new French oak, shows wonderfully sweet lead pencil shavings intermixed with an elegant black cherry and cassis nose. ...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (95RP, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind at the 1985 Bordeaux horizontal, the 1985 Château Lynch Bages was pitted against two other wines, both First Growths, and it more than held its own. In many ways it is a forerunner for the brilliant 1989 and 1990 that Jean-Michel crafted, though the 1985 has always been more elegant and comely in style. The nose is impressive after three decades with melted tar, a touch of peppermint and delineated black fruit that seem to gain intensity with each passing moment in the glass. Strangely those secondary notes of bay leaf and dried herbs make way for more primal fruit-derived scents with aeration! The palate does not disappoint. (NM)" (07/2015)
Starting Bid: $600.00

Bid on this magnum of 2003 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (1.5L) (100RP, 98JS, 97WE, 96VN, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Lafite Rothschild comes as close to perfection as any of the great Lafites made over the past three decades (1982, 1986, 1996, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010). This sensational effort came in at 12.7% natural alcohol, it is made in the style of one of this estate’s great classics, the 1959. Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim along with a luxurious bouquet of cedarwood, lead pencil shaving, white chocolate, cocoa and cassis. Fat, rich, opulent and full-bodied with low acidity and stunning seductiveness and complexity, this noble wine possesses a bountiful, generous, heady style. (RP)" (08/2014)
Starting Bid: $1,600.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (100JD, 100JS, 100RP, 100VN, 99DC, 98WE, 98WS). Vinous: "A towering, thrilling wine, the 2016 Mouton Rothschild is unbelievably beautiful today. Aromatics, fruit density and vertical structure all come together. In the glass, the 2016 is remarkably vivid and powerful, and yet a gentler, more feminine side emerges with time in the glass. The intense, mineral, savory profile recalls the 1986, but the 2016 has more grace, inner sweetness and sophistication than that wine. Even so, the 2016 is going to need at least a number of years in bottle before it starts drinking well, although it won't be the bruiser the 1986 remains to this day. This is breathtaking wine from Mouton, Tecnical Director Philippe Dhalluin and his team. (AG)" (01/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 1989 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (95JG, 95RP, 95VN, 95WS, 94ST). Vinous: "The 1989 Pichon-Baron repeats its performance from the vertical tasting in May 2018. It storms from the glass, bearing copious blackberry, cedar and perhaps a little more mint than I noticed on the previous bottle. There is so much youthful zeal to this harmonious, refined Pauillac that you would barely guess it is 30 years old. Long and tender with a graphite-infused finish, this bottle might be even better than the ex-château example. (NM)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (100RP, 98DC, 97JS, 97VN, 96ST, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted three times since bottling, the 1996 Lafite-Rothschild is unquestionably this renowned estate's greatest wine. As I indicated last year, only 38% of the crop was deemed grand enough to be put into the final blend, which is atypically high in Cabernet Sauvignon (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot). This massive wine may be the biggest, largest-scaled Lafite I have ever tasted. . . The wine exhibits a thick-looking, ruby/purple color, and a knock-out nose of lead pencil, minerals, flowers, and black currant scents. Extremely powerful and full-bodied, with remarkable complexity for such a young wine, this huge Lafite is oozing with extract and richness, yet has managed to preserve its quintessentially elegant personality. This wine is even richer than it was prior to bottling. (RP)" (04/1999)
Starting Bid: $825.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (100DC, 100RP, 100WE, 99JS, 97WS, 96JG, 96ST, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Lafite Rothschild is a little mute on the nose at this stage, opening to reveal warm blackcurrants, baked plums and boysenberry scents with hints of chocolate mint, violets, cedar chest and pencil lead. Full-bodied, rich and densely packed with perfumed black fruit layers, it has a rock-solid backbone of fantastically ripe, grainy tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing very long and minerally. Still very youthful! (LPB)" (03/2020)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (93W&S). Wine & Spirits: "(No tasting note given)" (04/2002)
Starting Bid: $286.00

Bid on this bottle of 1986 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (100DC, 100JD, 100JS, 100RP, 99VN, 99WS, 98ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1986 Mouton-Rothschild is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot that was picked from 2 October until 16 October. Winemaker Philippe Dhalluin, who was not working at the property back then, told me that the pH was fairly low at 3.54 when it is usually around 3.75, due to the natural tartaric acid in the vines. It has a powerful and intense bouquet as always: exemplary graphite and cedar scents, a touch of black pepper and incense. It seems to unfurl in the glass, like a motor revving its engine. The palate is beautifully balanced with its trademark firm tannic structure, a Mouton-Rothschild with backbone and masculinity. (NM)" (12/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Carruades de Lafite, Pauillac (95JS, 93RP, (91-93WE), 92WS). James Suckling: "Currants and blackberries on the nose. Spicy and intense undertones. Full body, with juicy fruit and a soft, very silky texture and a long, long finish. Polished and very pretty. Best Carraudes ever. " (03/2012)
Starting Bid: $775.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (97RP, 96WS, 95JD, 95JS, 95WE, 94VN, 92ST). 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. (RP)" (08/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 2018 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (100RP, 100WE, 99JS, 98DC, 98JD, 98VN, 97WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Lafite Rothschild is blended of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot and has 13.3% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, it needs a fair bit of swirling to unlock intoxicating scents of blackcurrant cordial, baked plums and black cherry compote with an undercurrent of dark chocolate, licorice, cast-iron pan, cedar chest and fertile loam, plus a waft of pencil lead. The delicately crafted, medium-bodied palate is dripping with class, featuring layers of mineral-laced black fruits and exquisitely ripe, singularly Lafite tannins, finishing with epic length and depth. This simply stunning, delicately crafted expression of 2018 with its singularly evocative imprint of Lafite will require a good 7-8 years in bottle, then should continue to inspire awe over the following 40+ years. (LPB)" (03/2021)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2010 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac (92JS). James Suckling: "A wine with berry, chocolate and spice character. Full body, with velvety tannins and a savory finish. It shows currant and berry. I love the texture to this. Third wine of first growth Latour." (02/2013)
Starting Bid: $410.00

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Latour, Pauillac (100JS, 100RP, 99DC, 99VN, 99WE, 99WS, (96-98JG)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Latour is unashamedly youthful with bold blackcurrants, black cherries and warm plums notes plus nuances of cedar chest, aniseed, beef drippings, truffles and tapenade with a waft of tilled black soil. Full, concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it has a rock-solid frame of super ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally. Just a baby—this needs time! (LPB)" (03/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1967 Latour, Pauillac (94JG). John Gilman: "There are a few wines from the 1967 vintage that simply transcend the growing season (Pétrus, Trotanoy and Latour immediately come to mind) and this is another vintage of Latour that used to fly below the radar and offer up outstanding drinking to those savvy enough to look for the wine. The bouquet on this most recent bottle was complex, classic and wide open, wafting from the glass in a fine, meaty blend of cassis, black cherries, cigar ash, gravel, black truffles, cigar smoke and a nice touch of coffee bean in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely suave on the attack, with excellent purity and soil signature, a fine core, melting tannins and fine length and grip on the complex and still nicely tangy finish." (09/2017)
Starting Bid: $650.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (99DC, 98JS, 98RP, 98VN, 98WS, 95ST, 95WE). Decanter: "Deep bright ruby, superconcentrated and extremely vertical, this Mouton is only starting to open up after which it will plateau for another 50 years or so of outstanding drinking. Cassis, cedar, graphite aromas and flavours of noteworthy complexity are lifted by harmonious acidity. An extremely refined and less exotic Mouton Rothschild. (ID)"

Bid on this bottle of 1998 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (96RP, 96VN, 95WS, 94DC). Vinous: "The 1998 Lafite-Rothschild is served from double magnum directly from the château reserves, in fact with the man who made it sitting opposite me – Charles Chevalier. I must admit to being quite amazed how well this shows at 20-years of age, trouncing all the other First Growths except Haut-Brion. Lucid in colour, it has a vivid bouquet of pure blackberry, blueberry, vanilla and graphite, perhaps just a little uncharacteristically showy in style, but beautifully defined and intense. The palate is perfectly balanced with layers of ripe black fruit, perfectly pitched acidity and a silky smooth texture that renders this utterly seductive. It is almost too good for me to recommend cellaring longer. Whatever...it is a sublime Lafite-Rothschild that on this showing, may well challenge the supremacy of the 1996. (NM)" (07/2018)
Starting Bid: $610.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Latour, Pauillac (94JD, 94RP, 93ST, 93WS, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Readers looking for a modern day version of Latour's magnificent 1962 or 1971 should check out the sensational 1999 Latour. It is a big, concentrated offering, exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color, and a classic nose of minerals, black currants, leather, and vanilla. The wine is long, ripe, and medium-bodied, with high levels of sweet tannin. This surprisingly full, concentrated 1999 should be drinkable in 5-6 years; it will last for three decades. (RP)" (04/2002)
Starting Bid: $1,000.00

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2003 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (1.5L) (96JS, 95WS, 94RP, 93JD, 93ST, 93WE, 92VN, 91DC). James Suckling: Sweet tobacco and plum with hints of leather and cassis on the nose. Full bodied, with big velvety tannins and lots of fruit. Very rich and powerful, even chewy. Give this some time to mellow out. Pull the cork after 2016. (03/2011)

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (1.5L) (95WE, 93JS, 90ST). Wine Enthusiast: "In recent years, Pichon Comtesse has developed an elegance all its own, with great style, smoothing out the real intensity of the wine. This 2005 continues in that tradition, a spicy, fruity wine, which has restraint as well as hidden power. (RV)" (06/2008)
Starting Bid: $525.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (93CG, 93WS, 92DC, 91ST, 90VN). Wine Spectator: "Dense aromas of licorice, tobacco, cedar and currants. Subtle yet complex. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a rich, long finish. Very pretty. One of the best from Pauillac this year, and clearly better than 2001. One of the surprises of the vintage. *Highly Recommended* (JS)" (03/2005)
Starting Bid: $255.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (97RP, 96JS, 95VN, 95WS, 94WE, 91DC, 91JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2010 was a very dry vintage of exceptional quality, producing incredibly structured and complex wines that are a little formidable when young but should age incredibly. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose of the 2010 Les Forts de Latour is broody with subtle notes of licorice, tar, crushed black berries and plums with hints of spice cake and hoisin. Full-bodied, firm and grainy with an impenetrable core of muscular fruit, it finishes with fantastic persistence. Give it 5-7 years at least, and then it may well outlive the 1970 Les Forts that I recently tasted with Latour's CEO, Frédéric Engerer! (LPB)" (02/2019)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2000 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (95RP, 92VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Château Grand Puy Lacoste is an exceptional wine from Xavier Borie. It has a brilliant nose of blackberry, crushed stone, graphite and cedar. Putting it to one side for ten to 15 minutes reveals subtle mint-like aromas that whisk you straight to Pauillac. The palate is smooth and silky, cloaking the tannic frame of this GPL so that you barely notice it. But that will stand it in good stead for the long-term, the cornerstone of all great wines from this estate. Then there is that hint of spice on the aftertaste—the show ain't over yet. Served alongside a magnum of Pichon Baron 2000, I would say that at the moment, it does not quite possess the same level of precision. However, it remains a magnificent Pauillac to cherish long-term. Tasted January 2016. (NM)" (07/2016)
Starting Bid: $440.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (100JS, 99DC, 99WE, 98W&S, 98WS, 97ST, 97VN, 96RP). James Suckling: "An incredible nose, so subtle with red fruits, mint, minerals, and all sorts of flowers give way to Cohiba cigar tobacco. The palate has such freshness and density, with perfectly polished tannins. Slightly leathery, like a wonderful Hermes bag. What a wine, please leave this for another ten years." (02/2011)

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2006 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (OWC - 95DC, 94JS, 93WE, 92RP, 92ST, 92WS, 90VN) in original wood. Decanter: "A rather solar expression suffuses the complex nose mingling notes of prunes, spices, and forest floor. This is not the most structured wine of this tasting but it remains a textbook Pichon Baron, as it has the telltale upright style, tension, and freshness, as well as an airborne finish. Superb wine whose complexity and depth sneak up on you. (YC)" (12/2021)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1998 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (91ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby-red. Ripe blackcurrant aromas and flavors are lifted by pungent graphite, cedar and mineral notes. Balanced, pure and smooth in the mouth, with excellent perfume and precision. Finishes long and pure, with lingering cassis and leather notes. This is another Lynch-Bages that has picked up volume and flesh from bottle aging. It's a very classic Pauillac and a wine that can still improve with additional cellaring. (ID) 91+" (01/2012)
Starting Bid: $375.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (99RP, 98DC, 98JS, 98WS, 97VN, 96WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Mouton-Rothschild is as concentrated as the 2010, but it presents itself in a more consumer-friendly, seductive style. Opulently textured and full-bodied with gorgeous levels of crème de cassis, melted licorice, espresso roast and chocolate, it possesses high but sweet, velvety tannins, massive body, and fabulous purity as well as length. (RP)" (12/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (96VN, 95RP). Vinous: "It is a few years since I last tasted this Pauillac but it remains a magnificent wine. Limpid and youthful, it displayed very little ageing compared to other 1982s, partly due to the larger format. The bouquet is very seductive with ebullient dark plum, iodine and blueberry, perhaps not far removed from another great Left Bank that year, the 1982 Pichon-Lalande. The palate is exquisitely balanced with supple, saturated tannins. This has clearly mellowed because it was extremely tannic two decades ago; pure and sensual towards the velvety smooth finish. This is only just reaching its peak, but there is no doubt that well-stored bottles could last another 30-40 years. (NM)" (09/2020)
