Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1998 Figeac, St-Emilion (98DC, 95JG, 92ST). Decanter: "A classic right bank year, this just jumps out of the glass with its singing black bramble fruits, lip-staining in their pleasure. A hail storm in July meant around 40% less yield than usual, but what is left behind is utterly delicious. You can hold onto this bottle for another few decades, or gulp it down now. The structure is juicy and ripe, with blackberries over smoked slate and supportive, fully-integrated tannins. It really shows how Figeac can hold back its charms until much later, rewarding those with patience to wait. One to smile over. (JA)" (10/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1982 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (98DC, 98JS, 97JG, 96ST, 95RP, 95WS). James Suckling: "This is a phenomenal 1982 and it remains the most drinkable of the first growths. A strong iodine character here enveloped by delicious currants, shaved chocolate and spices. Full body with super-integrated tannins and a refined texture. Wonderful balance." (06/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2003 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (94JS, 94RP, 93WS, 92ST, 92VN, 91WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This fully mature, gorgeous 2003 Branaire Ducru possesses silky tannins, lots of cedary, spice box, floral, black cherry, forest floor and velvety leather-like notes, full body, and an opulent, complex yet elegant style. A beauty of complexity, richness and finesse. (RP)" (08/2014)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 La Bienfaisance, St-Emilion (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 La Bienfaisance is a rich, concentrated wine with loads of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit along with some earthiness and subtle background oak. It is medium to full-bodied, ripe, and extremely well-made in a progressive, modern St-Emilion style. (RP)" (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Latour, Pauillac (100JS, 99VN, 99WS, 98RP, 98WE, 97ST). James Suckling: "Latour has made truly great wines in the past two decades—and this is one of the best. It has fabulous aromas of black truffles, currants, raspberry and dried flowers. Mind-blowing on the palate, it’s an emotional and soulful red." (04/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (96RP, 94WS, 92ST, 91DC). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What sumptuous pleasures await those who purchase either the 1996 or 1995 Pichon-Lalande. It is hard to choose a favorite, although the 1995 is a smoother, more immediately sexy and accessible wine. It is an exquisite example of Pichon-Lalande with the Merlot component giving the wine a coffee/chocolatey/cherry component to go along with the Cabernet Sauvignon's and Cabernet Franc's complex blackberry/cassis fruit. The wine possesses an opaque black/ruby/purple color, and sexy, flamboyant aromatics of pain grille, black fruits, and cedar. Exquisite on the palate, this full-bodied, layered, multidimensional wine should prove to be one of the vintage's most extraordinary success stories. (RP)" (02/1998)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (97RP, 94VN, 94WE, 93DC, 93JS, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2000 Cos d'Estournel is deep garnet in color with a touch of brick and sporting a lot of tertiary evolution on the nose. It leaps from the glass with opulent sandalwood, Chinese five spice, cigar box and leather scents over a core of prunes, baked cherries, dried mulberries and eucalyptus plus a touch of potpourri. Medium-bodied, the palate is laden with fragrant fruitcake and exotic spice layers, framed by wonderfully plush tannins and a refreshing line, finishing with an exhilarating menthol lift. (LPB)" (11/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (99JS, 94JG, 93DC). James Suckling: "What an awe-inspiring nose of currants, shaved lead pencil, white truffles and earth. It's full-bodied and enveloped by silky tannins that lead to an earthy, long finish. Old, traditional Bordeaux with soul and remarkable complexity. Sensational. " (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $927.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1986 Margaux, Margaux (98VN, 97RP, 95WS). Vinous: "The 1986 Château Margaux was even more emotionally moving. Still incredibly youthful, it showed incredible focus and depth, all backed up by considerable structure. As hard as it may seem to believe, on this night the 1986 appeared to still be some years away from peaking. It was striking in every way. (AG) 98+" (02/2012)
Starting Bid: $1,478.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (98JS, 96RP, 94DC, 94WS). James Suckling: "A wine with intense spice and berry character, with hints of sweet tobacco. 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." (02/2012)
Starting Bid: $345.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Quinault L'Enclos, St-Emilion (93ST, 92WS, 90JD). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby-red. Sexy aromas of cherry, minerals, iron and smoked meat. Juicy and sappy for the year, with lovely energy to the concentrated flavors of cherry, minerals, smoke, flowers and earth. Very sophisticated, shapely wine with a long, ripely tannic finish throwing off notes of smoke, minerals and iron. (ST)" (06/2008)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this bottle of 1990 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (96RP, 94JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 La Mission Haut Brion is a wine that just gives so much pleasure that it seems almost immoral to criticize. For sure, it is not in the same league as the awe-inspiring 1989, yet it has such an engaging, quintessential La Mission bouquet full of warm gravel, chestnut, morels and bay leaf scents that you just fall instantly under its charms. It seems to just grow in the glass. The palate is beautifully balanced with great depth but is still a little grainy in texture, and I noticed how it evolved almost a Musigny-like personality with time in the glass. I suggested back in 2014 that it might improve with continued bottle age. Perhaps now I believe that it has reached the top of its plateau, yet the substance and the persistence—the energy—of this Pessac-Léognan suggests that it will give 20 years of drinking pleasure. (NM)" (06/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1979 Latour, Pauillac.
Starting Bid: $650.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1982 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (95JS, 94WS, 93RP, 92ST). James Suckling: "This shows intense aromas of mint, lead pencil and currants that follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a finish with tension and freshness. " (10/2012)
Starting Bid: $750.00

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Margaux, Margaux (96DC, 95WE, 94JS, 94WS, 93RP, 92VN). Decanter: "At first the tannins keep this pretty tight, but as it opens up there is an elegance and finesse, along with a subtle floral expression that is clearer in the Château Margaux than the Pavillon. Juicy on the finish, and as it opens further you get a gourmet, dense expression to the raspberry and cassis fruit. Aromatically it is finely knit and uplifting. The iris and peony aromatics of Château Margaux are really to the fore, it's a great vintage to show off this side of the estate. 2% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. 3.6pH. 38% of overall production in the first wine. One of the earliest harvest on record, all finished by end of September which is extremely rare at Margaux. (JA)" (02/2021)

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2005 Clos de l'Oratoire, St-Emilion (1.5L) (94RP, 93VN, 93WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: From the Comte von Neipperg, his wines from this over-achieving estate always deliver an aromatic fireworks display of cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake, roasted herbs, black olive, cassis and sweet kirsch. The 2005 has all that as well as ripe, well-integrated, velvety tannin, and full body in a sexy, luscious, heady style to drink now and over the next 10-15 years. (RP) (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1983 Latour, Pauillac (95JG, 94WS, 90JS, 90VN). John Gilman: "The 1983 Château Latour has never had a great reputation, and I probably had not tasted the wine since close to its release back in the mid-1980s. I was very surprised to see just how stunning the wine has turned out to be, given that Robert Parker only gave it 87 points back in the day. However, this particular magnum was absolutely stellar, offering up a deep, complex and classic nose of cassis, black cherries, dark gravelly soil tones, tobacco leaf, cedar and a topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with fine structure and grip, excellent gravelly undertow, still moderate tannins and a long, complex and perfectly balanced and classic Latour finish. This is a very, very underrated vintage of Latour." (09/2020)
Starting Bid: $630.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1978 Beychevelle, St-Julien (91JG). John Gilman: "The 1978 Beychevelle could still do with a few more years in the cellar to fully blossom, but with a bit of extended aeration, it begins to emerge from its adolescent stage. Given the combination of the 1978 vintage’s slightly green edge and Beychevelle’s propensity to show a bit of bell pepper as well when it is still on the young side, there is a touch of herbaceousness here that may be a bit off-putting to those with a low tolerance to pyrazines. But the nose is complex and lovely at the same time, as it offers up scents of cherries, a touch of bell pepper (already moving in the direction of chipotles), cigar ash, lovely soil tones, a bit of tobacco leaf and a faint whiff of cedar. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and complex, with fine elegance, moderate tannins, fine intensity of flavor and impressive length and grip on the tangy finish." (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $330.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2012 d'Issan, Margaux (95RP, 94DC, 93VN, (91-93WE), 92JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Château d’Issan, builds on the richness of the second wine and adds more body, structure and density. It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013. (RP)" (04/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (95JS, 95RP, 94JD, 94WE, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, this spectacular 2003 hits all the sweet spots on the palate. A glorious bouquet of cedarwood, jammy black currants, cherries, licorice and truffle is followed by a dense, opulently textured, full-bodied wine with terrific purity and freshness as well as deep, velvety textured tannins. (RP)" (08/2014)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Monbousquet, St-Emilion (94RP, 93ST, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful effort from Monbousquet, this 2005 comes across to me as one of their strongest efforts, with notes of toasty oak, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit as well as some licorice, incense and flowers. Full-bodied and opulent, this is an amazing wine from a terroir on the so-called 'wrong side' of St.-Emilion. It is an amazing performance. (RP)" (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $145.00

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (100JD, 100JS, 100RP, 98ST, 98VN, 97DC). 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. (RP)" (06/2009)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1979 La Mission Haut-Brion, Graves. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark plum/garnet-tinged with some amber at the edge, the 1979 offers up notes of garrigue, truffles, damp earth, hints of iodine and seaweed (which I associate more with wines made within 100 kilometers of the Mediterranean coastline, not the Atlantic Ocean), sweet currants, plums, cherries, cedar and roasted herbs. This medium-bodied, elegant, fully mature 1979 is a lighter version of La Mission than the 1978, but, for the vintage, it is a dramatic, authoritative effort. Decent acidity remains and the tannins have largely disappeared. (RP)" (08/2012)
Starting Bid: $380.00

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Margaux, Margaux (100DC, 100JD, 100JS, 99RP, 98ST, 98W&S, 98WS). James Suckling: "The 2000 Margaux kicked off a string of great wines. The aromas are spellbinding, with notes of raspberry and strawberry. The palate is incredibly silky yet structured. Impeccable balance." (04/2014)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (OWC - 100DC, 100JD, 100JS, 100RP, 98VN, 98WS, 97WE) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep purple-black colored, the 2016 Léoville Las Cases (composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc) is quite closed to begin, yet with patient coaxing it unfurls beautifully to reveal suggestions of ripe blackcurrants, black raspberries, warm redcurrants and wild blueberries, followed by touches of unsmoked cigars, tilled red soil, cast iron pan, fallen leaves and lavender plus wonderfully fragrant wafts of lilacs and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with tightly knit, very subtle layers of minerals, floral notions and black and red berries, all framed by exquisitely ripe, silt-like tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing with epic length and depth. (LPB)" (11/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1979 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (96WS). Wine Spectator: "No tasting note given." (10/1989)
Starting Bid: $900.00

Bid on this magnum of 1970 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (1.5L). Michael Broadbent in Vintage Wine: "Fragrant and fruity in cask. Evolving pleasantly through the 1980s. Most recently, a good mature colour, distinctly sweet, sound, drinking well. Last noted at an office tasting at Christie's, June 1998. 3 stars." Originally owned by same Marquis who owned Lafite and Latour, Calon-Ségur is widely thought to be the oldest château in St-Estephe.
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Clos des Jacobins, St-Emilion (94JS, 94WS, 91RP). James Suckling: "Classy, subtle aromas of blackberries, currants and spices follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Wonderfully subtle and refined." (07/2013)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1994 Pavie-Macquin, St-Emilion ((90-92ST), 91VN). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Black-ruby color. Superripe, highly perfumed aromas of crushed raspberries and pungent oak. Wonderful inner-mouth flavor, and quite fresh for the year, but there's not quite the fat of the '95. Here the substantial tannins are a bit more present. Not as seamless as the '95, but this is impressive juice. Very concentrated and very long. (ST)" (05/1996)
Starting Bid: $165.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1989 Mazeris, Canon-Fronsac. According to the importer: "Situated 40 kilometers northeast of the city of Bordeaux and just 5 km northwest of Libourne and the prestigious AOCs of Pomerol and Saint Emilion, Château Mazeris is a 350 year old winemaking estate producing right bank-styled Merlot of distinction and great drinkability. Built in 1769, the estate was bequeathed as part of the dowry of Jeanne-Modeste Couvrat to Jean-Baptiste de Cournuaud upon their marriage in 1805. Since then, Château Mazeris has produced wine in the hands of 9 successive generations of de Cournuauds. Today it is helmed by Patrick de Cournuaud and his sons, Jean and Matthieu. There are three labels: Château Mazeris, Château Lafond (2nd label) and La Part des Anges, which is only made in top vintages.The Château sits on 19 hectares at the top of the hill in Saint Michel de Fronsac, the very heart of AOC Canon-Fronsac. "

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (98RP, 97DC, 97WE, 95JS, 94VN, 93ST). 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, I doubt it is inferior to the 2010, just more classic as well as slightly more forward and a degree weaker in alcoholic potency (12.5% versus 13.5%). (RP)" (05/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 1955 Calon Segur, St-Estèphe. The third growth Château Calon-Ségur is the northernmost classified growth in the whole of the Médoc, and as such is typically very very tannic when young and very long lived. Once owned by Nicolas-Alexandre, Marquis de Ségur, who at the time was also owner of the first growths Chateau Latour and Lafite. According to the history books, the Marquis always contended that his "heart was with Calon, " and this is why Calon's label includes a drawing of a heart around the chateau's name.
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1989 Montrose, St-Estèphe (100RP, 99JS, 98VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For many years I have vehemently argued that the 1989 Montrose is a benchmark wine for the estate. Having tasted it several times over the last couple of months, I have never found a single occasion to alter that view. Tasted at the vertical in London, it continues to shine, having never lost any of its luster in recent years. It is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that was picked from 11 to 28 September. Lucid in color, the aromatics do not hold back with vibrant blackberry, blueberry and black truffle, hints of sous-bois, all with sensational precision that few can match in this vintage (indeed, its precision lends it a veneer of modernity since "precision" is now more commonplace across Bordeaux). The palate is brilliantly balanced with filigree tannin. (NM)" (03/2017)
Starting Bid: $1,200.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1979 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very smooth entry on the medium-bodied palate, good acidity with upfront notes of black olives, burnt toast, bitter cherry and chestnuts. Surprisingly good grip and persistency: this is certainly one of the better 1979 Bordeaux to come my way, though some might find the finish too herbaceous and raw. Commendable. (NM)" (12/2006)
Starting Bid: $975.00

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2000 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien (97JD, 97RP, 95WS, 93JS, 92VN) and 1-bottle of 2000 Montrose, St-Estèphe (97DC, 96JD, 96JS, 94RP, 94ST, 93WS, 92W&S). Of the 2000 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "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. (RP)" (06/2010)

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (97JD, 97JG, 97RP, 93JS, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'The harvest lasted 16 days from the 16th September, ' proprietor Bruno Borie mentioned about the 1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou. Medium brick colored, it comes galloping out of the glass with bold, expressive notes of Black Forest cake, preserved plums and mincemeat pie with hints of cigar box, star anise, eucalyptus and espresso plus wafts of roasted nuts and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, generous and opulent, the palate has beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins and tons of youthful fruit, finishing with epically long-lasting layers of preserved black fruits and exotic spices. (LPB)" (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $295.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1988 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (92WS, 91VN). Wine Spectator: "Beautiful aromas of fresh herbs, such as tarragon and mint, with berry and cherry undertones. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins that are polished and very pretty. Caressing finish. (JS, Web-2009)"
Starting Bid: $435.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 Léoville Las Cases, St-Julien (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Chateau Leoville Las-Cases 1990 continues to be a monumental wine, one of the finest of that era. Tasted blind at a private dinner, it retains that misleading, Pauillac bouquet with great intensity, the secondary aromas swarming…rolled tobacco, undergrowth, graphite and Provencal herbs. The palate is beautifully balanced with melted, autumnal, tertiary fruit and great weight towards the persistent finish. It has a dimension and a breeding that puts the 1989 in the shade. Wonderful. (NM)" (07/2012)
Starting Bid: $810.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 Latour, Pauillac (96W&S, 92VN, 91ST, 90WS). Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (04/2002)
Starting Bid: $700.00

Bid on this bottle of 1983 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien (93ST, 92RP, 90WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium red with an amber edge. Archetypal mature Gruaud-Larose aromas of truffle, smoked beef, earth, cedar, and tobacco complicate red cherry on the expressive. Fresh and juicy in the mouth, with a graceful quality to the red cherry, spicecake, orange rind and aromatic herb flavors. The finish is bright, long and clean, showing subtle underbrush notes at the back. I have always felt the 1983 Gruaud to be a success but bottles I've had in the past have been marked by gamey, animal aromas and dry, earthy flavors. Not this time: I've never had a better bottle of Gruaud-Larose from this vintage. (ID)" (04/2013)
Starting Bid: $105.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (100JD, 100RP, (98-100WE), 98JS, 96ST, 96WS, 95DC, 95VN). 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%). (RP) " (12/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1998 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (92VN, 91RP, 91ST). Vinous: "The 1998 Ducru Beaucaillou is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot that was picked between 24 September and 7 October. It has a lucid ruby hue with very little ageing on the rim. The bouquet is ripe, almost heady in style, glossy perhaps with kirsch, maraschino cherries, vanilla and crushed rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, dense black fruit laced with game, allspice, white pepper and leather. This is a more sinewy take on the vineyard compared to the more refined and finessed wines under Bruno Borie today, although there is plenty of freshness here and it will continue to age for several years. Tasted at the château. (NM)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $345.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (95RP, 95VN). Vinous: "The 1990 Cos d’Estournel is a vintage that I have not tasted for several years. I have always had a soft spot for the 1990. It does not disappoint with gorgeous scents of clove, bay leaf, and warm gravel that are almost Pomerol-like in style. The palate is fresh and lively. This 1990 is very well balanced and eschews the warmth of that summer and allows the terroir to shine. It grips the mouth and offers black truffle and sage towards the slightly grainy textured finish that lingers on the palate. What a sublime Cos d’Estournel. Well-kept bottles will be giving immense pleasure although, you can envisage this lasting another fifteen years, possibly twenty. (NM)" (02/2018)
Starting Bid: $585.00

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (98DC, 97RP, 97VN, 96JS, 95ST). Decanter: "As with the last time I drank this wine two years ago, it is still full of life and energy, with that classic Lafite quality of effortless drinkability. Utterly moreish, it has an amazing cinnamon-edged spice, rich and slightly exotic with brick-red colouring. To recap what we all know to have been a great season, 1982 saw a dry and mild spring, allowing an excellent flowering followed by a dry and hot summer with regular small showers and fresher nights in August. It was an easy harvest that saw an early and large crop, and in the vat rooms they say, it smelt of hot fruit jam. Baron Eric's memories say it all: 'The last day of harvest was a Friday and we knew right away how good the fruit in the tanks was. Everyone was in a great mood, the whole harvest felt like fun.' (JA)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $2,060.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot 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)

Bid on this magnum of 2003 Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (93VN, 92WS, 91ST). Vinous: "The 2003 Sociando-Mallet is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc picked between September 10 and 24. It was aged in new oak barrels for 11 months. Coming from the north Médoc, it would have enjoyed onshore breezes that mitigated the summer heat. The bouquet shows no signs of that warmth, offering notes of pressed flowers, pomegranate, smoke and tobacco that open up nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, a delicate touch of white pepper and sage, good depth and a very cohesive, tobacco and spice finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is a great wine for the vintage and continues to give a lot of pleasure. Tasted at the vertical tasting at Sociando-Mallet. (NM)" (03/2019)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2003 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (95WS, 94JS, (92-94ST), 94WE, 93RP). Wine Spectator: "Loads of crushed berries, with mineral, lightly toasted oak and licorice. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is the sleeper of the vintage. (JS)" (03/2006)

Bid on this magnum of 2003 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (1.5L) (95RP, 93JS, 93ST, 93WS, 91WE). 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. (RP) 95+" (08/2014)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1978 Margaux, Margaux (93JD, 93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1978 Chateau Margaux is a significant wine for two reasons: that is was the first under the Mentzelopoulos family after acquiring the property and also, it was their best wine in many years. Today it is still going strong. Clear in color, it has quite a deep garnet core. The nose is very seductive with black fruit, leather, scorched earth, a hint of lavender all beautifully defined and quintessentially Margaux. The medium-bodied palate has exquisite balance, the acidity nicely judged, still a little masculine and 'solid' compared to the subsequent vintages under Paul Pontallier, yet fresh and vital. Sure, there is a grittiness and a touch of rusticity towards the finish, but all in all, this represents a great 1978 Left Bank and a signpost that the First Growth was back on the right track after a dismal run of vintages during the 1970s. Tasted May 2016. (NM)" (10/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1970 Haut Bailly, Pessac-Leognan (92JS, 90RP) and 1-bottle of 1970 Montrose, St-Estèphe (95JG). Of the 1970 Montrose, St-Estèphe, John Gilman writes: "The ’70 vintage of Montrose has always been one of my favorites for this property, and this particular bottle showed outstandingly well. The bouquet is very, very deep and delivers a wonderfully complex mélange of cassis, black raspberry, cigar box, woodsmoke, a stellar expression of Montrose earthy soil, herbs and a judicious framing of cedary, spicy wood. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, young and urgent, with great acids, a rock solid core of black fruit, excellent expression of terroir, and profound length and grip on the mineral-infused finish.
