2010 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
92-93 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that shows lots of chocolate, tobacco and currants. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. All there." (04/2011) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From Helene Garcin, this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot displays classic tobacco leaf and smoky barbecue notes along with rich black currants and crushed rocks in a medium to full-bodied, seductive, attractively up-front style. Some Asian plum sauce is also noticeable in this complex, evolved and delicious wine, which can be dru...

96 points Decanter: "Inky purple in colour, with peony and iris aromatics, then a whoosh of freshness that makes your mouth water before you are even halfway through. This is extremely impressive, well balanced, with fine tannins and real discretion but hidden power and depths. Clear floral character, with an austerity that makes you celebrate minerality. There are gourmet touches but the focus is rather on slate, rosemary and crushed stones with hints of chocolate shavings alongside the damson and blackberry fruit. 3.56pH, 80% in casks, 11% 20hl wood an...

98 points 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 p...

2018 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Despite its weight, this is a well-crafted wine. It combines richness with sophisticated tannins, dense black fruits and considerable potential. Ripe berry flavors give depth. Drink this wine from 2026. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (03/2021) 95 points Vinous: "The 2018 Malartic Lagravière is every bit as compelling as it was en primeur. Inky dark fruit, dried herbs, licorice, lavender and chocolate are all kicked up in this sumptuous Pessac-Léognan. Soft curves and silky tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. The 2018 is...

95 points James Suckling: "Wow. Wonderfully aromatic nose of currants, blackberries and lilacs. Full body but refined and beautiful. The quality of the tannins is exception. So fine. Lovely austerity and tension on the finish. Better in 2016." (02/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The saturated ruby/purple-hued 2011 Haut-Bailly exhibits a glorious, subtle, noble set of aromatics consisting of red and black currants, sweet cherries, graphite, truffles and a faint hint of wood spice. The wine hits the palate with the profound elegance and p...

2010 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "Dark fruits such as raspberries and blueberries with subtle perfume on the nose. Full body, with super well-integrated tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Racy young wine. Shows classy structure and richness." (02/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of my all-time favorite wines from Domaine de Chevalier, a silky, rather classic Pessac-Leognan with notes of scorched earth, tobacco leaf and black and red currants, but no hard edges. Fragrant, complex aromatics are followed by a savory, expansively fla...

2018 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
99 points James Suckling: "Complex and expressive nose, offering red and dark fruit, spices and pepper with wood and mushroom undertones. Fresh mussel shell and a hint of ink, too. Full-bodied with a fine texture and great balance between the acidity and the controlled, tannic structure. Very long finish. Goes on and on. Tiny production, 21 hectoliters per hectare." (03/2021) 98 points Decanter: "First vintage under Chris Wilmers, succeeding his father Bob. A brilliant Haut-Bailly, living up to its En Primeur promise, packed with ripe rippling black an...

94 points 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)" (12/2011) 93 points James Suckling: "A wine with lovely dark berries and chocolates follows through to...

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a generous, opulent wine with ripe blackberry and hints of spice notes sustained by rich tannins. Juicy and packed with tannins, this will be ready to drink young, but will also age over many years. (RV)" (04/2018) 97 points James Suckling: "A tight, solid red with crushed-berry, sandalwood, stone and cement flavors. It’s full-bodied, yet very tight and compact with excellent depth and intensity. Closed and austere, but there’s both energy and levity to it at the same time." (01/2020) 96 points Robert Parker's W...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Haut-Brion is composed of 49.4% Merlot, 38.7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11.9% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, the wine needs a lot of swirling before it begins to release a whole complex melody of notes, one at a time to begin: tilled earth, followed by pronounced licorice, then crushed rocks, then the preserved plums. Eventually, it all comes together into a fascinating crescendo of intense crème de cassis, rose oil, wild blueberries and kirsch notes, giving way to quiet, persistent leitmotif...

2018 Le Pape, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "Wild strawberries, red plums and wood on the nose. Some iodine and shells, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine and polished tannins. Juicy and savory. A little tight now. A blend of 80% merlot and 20% cabernet sauvignon. Try after 2024." (03/2021) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Le Pape is blended of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Merlot was harvested on September 17, 18 and 24, and the Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested October 9. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with beautiful...

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Solid tannins mark this still very young wine. At the same time, the fruit is rich and well proportioned. Black currants dominate the fruity spectrum, giving the wine richness as well as great potential. (RV)" (04/2018) 94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Latour-Martillac is a powerful, muscular wine. Beams of tannin give the 2015 its potent, brooding personality. Savory herbs, new leather, wild cherry, smoke and kirsch get an extra kick of intensity from bright acids and pointed yet well-integrated tannins. Today, the 2015 is a bit...

2018 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "The intensity and perfumes on the nose are extremely impressive, offering pure blackberries and violets, as well as bark, wild-mushroom and raw-tile notes. It’s full-bodied with creamy tannins that envelop the wine and a gorgeous, subtly complex center palate with all the flavors found on the nose. Endless finish. Love the finesse and length to this. Greatest ever." (03/2021) 96-98 points Decanter: "Lovely rich depth to the nose. This is a successful wine with balance, power and elegance. Subtle with a ton of complexity: blac...

2018 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves
Top Pick!
Château L’Avocat is from the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation. I met Nicola Allison at a small conference of Women from Bordeaux and Napa Valley in Napa earlier. She followed my advice by sending her wines to our hotel in April to be tasted, and Clyde and I liked them. I followed up by visiting the estate almost eight weeks later and was shown the gravely, plateau vineyards by her husband Sean, who manages the vines. The vineyards were purchased by the Allisons in 2002; the fr...

92-93 points James Suckling: "Full and juicy with lots of currant and blackberry character. Hot-stone undertones. Chewy tannins. Has the stuffing to come around nicely." (04/2017) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and rounded in feel, with polished plum and cassis notes lined with subtle savory and iron steaks that extend through the pure, sleek finish. Not big, but fresh and balanced. Drink now through 2027. (JM)" (03/2019) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Haut-Vigneau is medium garnet-purple colored with a nose of warm plums, black cherries a...

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From an estate that’s been on fire over the past decade, the 2020 Domaine De Chevalier is another brilliant wine in the making and checks in as 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and 3% Cabernet Franc. Offering impressive cassis and darker berry fruits, it has complex notes of crushed flowers, violets, and damp earth-like nuances. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with ultra-fine tannins and a silky, layered, seamless texture, it shines for both its richness and its balance. It also shuts down quite quickly...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is young but has great potential. The tannins shine, balanced with powerful black fruits and a solid, dense texture. The wine will age well and will be at its best from 2023. (RV)" (04/2021) 88-91 points Vinous: "The 2018 Chantegrive offers lovely depth and textural resonance, with pretty floral and savory notes that lend a brilliant upper register. The 2018 finishes with lovely precision. Touches of mocha and gravel add the closing shades of nuance. Tasted two times. (AG)" (04/2019) 90 points James Suckling: "Ar...

2017 Haut-Vigneau, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Under the same ownership as Château Carbonnieux, also in Pessac-Léognan, this wine is richly structured and full of bright fruits. Its balance is just right, touches of wood aging mingling with the black-currant flavors and acidity. (RV)" (12/2019) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Dark and winey, featuring steeped blackberry and black currant fruit, infused with mesquite, black tea and iron notes. Shows solid concentration, displaying a juicy feel through the finish. (JM)" (03/2020) K&L Notes: A superb wine and great value from ...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Although it emerges from a similar terroir and the same winemaking team, the 2018 Château La Mission Haut-Brion is a dramatically different wine than the Haut-Brion and has a more concentrated, dense, powerful style that is all potential at this point. Dense purple-hued, with lots of crème de cassis, black cherries, smoked meats, lead pencil, graphite, and crushed stone aromatics, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a concentrated mid-palate, masses of ripe tannins, integrated acidity, and one hell of a finish.

(02/2018) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This has a sappy core of kirsch and plum preserve flavors, laced with bright, fresh bay leaf and savory notes. A well-buried iron spine holds the finish, letting the fruit play out. Fleshes out nicely in the glass. Very solid.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Everyone at the tasting where this wine was presented was rocked (or should I say shocked) by the greatness of this wine. It needs no defense. I rated it 96 seven years ago, and it comes from a beautiful vineyard in Pessac-Leognan near Haut-Bergey. Made by Helene Garcin and her winemaking team at the time, Michel Rolland and Jean-Luc Thunevin (now replaced by Dr. Alain Raynaud), 650 cases of this wine were produced. It has a deep, opaque bluish/purple color and a gorgeously sweet nose of incense, asphalt, blueber...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is already showing exceptionally well, even though it is not close to its plateau of maturity. The deep ruby/purple color is followed by scents of roasted herbs intermixed with sweet black currant fruit, truffles, vanillin, and minerals. Lush, with ripe cassis fruit on the attack, outstanding balance, medium body, and layers of intensity, this is an elegant, graceful, smoothly textured, beautifully made Bordeaux.

This is the 3rd label of the venerable Pessac-Léognan estate, Haut-Bailly. The 2019 is the second vintage with this new name and label, both of which are meant to represent a modernization of the château as the next generation of the Wilmers family takes over production.
