1996 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

Jancis Robinson: "Quite dark crimson. Savoury, evolved, rather toasty nose. Round and mild and easy to like. (JR)" (02/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very good example of this estate, the 1996's saturated dark ruby/plum color is accompanied by textbook aromas of black currants, smoky new oak, minerals, and tobacco. Well-made, with moderate tannin, excellent purity, and a medium-bodied, ripe, melted asphalt-flavored finish, this [is a] seductive Lynch-Moussas.

2016 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Decanter: "Always more muscular and powerful than Armailhac, there's no surprise that this has closed down more than its sibling. The complexity of the layers are still on display, showcasing fresh menthol, cranberry, white pepper, black olive, rose and blackberry, all wrapped up in a tight tannic hold. There are some wonderful toasted caramel notes, subdued but rich and tight, waiting to show their exuberance on the finish.

2005 d'Armailhac, Pauillac

Aromatically, it majors on cassis, liquorice, cedar and patisserie. This is a lovely wine, a classic Pauillac that is not overly intense and retains a sense of juiciness. Of the three Pauillac estates tasted here, this 2005 is the one to open today.

There is an austerity to the opening beats of the wine, and the tannins make their presence felt right the way through. Overall this is excellent.

2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (1.5L) 1-pack in OWC

96 points James Suckling: "This is very dense and tight right now with firm tannins. Currants with cassis, plums and peach. Full and dense, not giving that much. Powerful and intense and structured. It needs at least another five years." (05/2013) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous. There's something ethereal about its tannins, like a chocolate truffle melt ...Read More »

2016 Le Petit Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "This is a very powerful Petit Mouton with so much rich fruit and power. Full-bodied, tannic yet polished and long. Muscular for the second wine of Mouton." (04/2017) 94 points Decanter: "Petit Mouton always shows charm in a rich, seductive expression, even in muscular vintages like 2016. It has the most wonderful sweetness to it, a highly seductive mix of the austerity of 2016 with the natural joy and exuberance of Petit Mouton, showing lovely rich damson fruit and huge persistence. It need time in the glass to open up. Dr ...Read More »

2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

96 points James Suckling: "A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused. Lovely now to drink but better in 2017." (10/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous.

1990 Latour, Pauillac Back In Stock!
1990 Latour, Pauillac

100 points Wine Spectator: "This is one of my favorite wines ever. 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. It's hard not to drink it now. (JS)" (02/2005) 98-99 points James Suckling: "The quality of the tannins and density of fruit is truly beautiful. This is so focused, with purity and beauty. The 1990 Latour came into my head when I tasted this (twice). It starts off slowly and then builds and builds a ...Read More »

1986 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (1.5L)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is the finest Grand-Puy-Lacoste produced after 1982 and before 1995. The 1986 still possesses an impressive deep ruby/purple color, as well as a classic nose of cedar, blackcurrants, smoke, and vanillin. Full-bodied, powerful, authoritatively rich, and loaded with fruit, this wine's solid lashing of tannin is not likely to melt away for 3-4 more years. It can be drunk, although it is backward and unyielding. Certainly, it is one of the better northern Medocs of the vintage. (RP)" (01/1998) Wine Specta ...Read More »

2016 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from the genius winemaking talent of Nicolas Glumineau, the 2016 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande matches the 1982 and is a perfect, legendary wine in the making. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc brought up in 60% new oak, it's not the most powerful Left Bank but offers perfect balance and thrilling intensity as well as heavenly aromatics of crème de cassis, leafy herbs, jammy blackberries, tobacco leaf, and freshly sharpened lead pencils as well as more violets and mineral ...Read More »

2015 Haut-Batailley, Pauillac

92-95 points Vinous: "A wine of class, pedigree and nuance, the 2015 Haut-Batailley is superb. Beams of supporting tannin give the dark purplish flavors striking energy and cut. Graphite, smoke, violet, mint, dark cherry and plum notes continue to open up in the glass. Haut-Batailley is a Pauillac with distinct Saint-Julien leanings, and that is exactly what comes across here. It is also one of the overachievers of the year. The 2015 was impressive each and every time I saw it. Tasted five times. (AG)" (04/2016) 94 points James Suckling: "There’s immed ...Read More »

2015 Echo de Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

91 points James Suckling: "Attractive dark berries with sweet, spicy oak that leads to a slick palate that delivers smooth tannins and a fresh, approachable finish. Try around 2021." (02/2018) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Echo de Lynch Bages is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot, matured in one-year-old barrels. It has a fragrant, finely tuned bouquet of blackberry, pencil lead and a touch of citrus fruit - scents that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, the acidity well ...Read More »

2015 Les Tourelles de Longueville, Pauillac (1.5L)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Merlot-dominant wine comes from a vineyard not too far from the river. It has acidity, freshness and a soft rounded texture. The black fruit is generous, soft and opulent. There are just enough tannins to give it a great shape. (RV)" (04/2016) 91 points James Suckling: "A straight-shooting Pauillac with quite brash structural appeal and youthful tannins that carve out a linear shape. Plenty of dark-berry flavors here. Try from 2021." (02/2018) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Les Tourelles de Long ...Read More »
