2016 La Tour Léognan, Pessac-Léognan

From the winery: "Originally, Château Tour Léognan was the estate located right next to Château Carbonnieux. In 1956 Marc Perrin bought both properties; he reorganized all the planting-layout and Tour Léognan became the second wine of Carbonnieux. From the early stages, Château Tour Léognan is made from the younger vineyards of Château Carbonnieux (vine younger than 12 years of age). It follows the same process and deserves the same care as its bigger brother. Being drier and fruitier, the Château Tour Léognan wines can be served younger but they still ...Read More »

2015 de Landiras Rouge, Graves Top Pick!
2015 de Landiras Rouge, Graves

This property is located at the southern end of the Graves region, very close to Barsac and Sauternes. It is one of the oldest in Bordeaux, dating from the fourteenth century. John Statton built the original chateau in 1360 on the site of a Roman villa, while the land was still in English possession. In the 1500s, the property was purchased and run by the powerful Angol-Gascon family of Montferrand. At the time there were 14,000 acres of vineyards and property. This family, for a short while, also owned Chateau Margaux. The Landiras vineyards eventually ...Read More »

2016 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "Stunning black fruit with plenty of forest berries in there, the whole picture cool and very delicate, also on the concentrated and highly structured palate. The tannins are very fine-grained, but decisively austere and, together with the vibrant acidity, they propel the finish out towards infinity and leave a breathtaking final impression. A blend of 56 per cent merlot, 37.5 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 6.5 per cent cabernet franc. Very long aging potential, but you could try it in 2023."

Racy and refined. Persistent. Drink in 2025." (02/2017) 97 points Vinous: "One of the stars of the vintage, the 2014 Haut-Brion is an exceptionally beautiful and vivid wine.

2015 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves Top Pick!
2015 L'Avocat Rouge, Graves

Ch. 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 fruit ...Read More »

2009 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Decanter: "As it opens in the glass, this is absolutely gorgeous. You can see why this was the period where people stopped and said, 'hang on, what's going on at Haut Bailly?' It's silky and a touch subdued, clearly a serious wine, with seductive, fleshy cassis, bilberry, hedgerow and bramble fruits alongside notes of leather, pencil lead and crushed stones, perfectly balanced by tantalisingly reticent tannins and acidity. It's got to be one of the greatest Haut-Baillys on record, with its wonderful expression and great persistency. (JA)" (02/ ...Read More »

The 2001 vintage of the Domaine de Chevalier white (tasted from half bottle) is well-evolved, packed with flavors of almonds, toast, spice, fresh grapefruits, white fruits and an impressive layer of acidity.

2014 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan

Black fruit, smoke, mint, leather and tobacco wrap around the huge, structured finish in a wine that brings together intense fruit with an equally imposing sense of structure. Consulting winemaker Frédéric Massie continues to do impressive work at Brown, a historic estate in Pessac-Léognan that seems to be on the rise. There is a lot to like and look forward to.

The palate is medium-bodied with impressive, tightly knit black fruit laced with cedar and white pepper. There is superb weight in this 2007 considering the vintage, doling out fine mineralité on the persistent finish. Very fine, but I would actually wait another couple of years before broaching.

It never steps on the accelerator too hard. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is still a veneer of new oak that will need to be assimilated over the coming years.

(RV)" (05/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Features a flattering edge of singed macadamia nut that melds wonderfully with the racier white peach, yellow apple and green almond flavors. The long salted butter finish has a touch of toast. Approachable now, but there's no rush. (JM)" (03/2015) 91 ...Read More »

2015 Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Pessac-Léognan

99 points James Suckling: "The currants and blackberries on the nose are very impressive with wet-earth and lavender undertones. Full body and super-integrated tannins that melt into the wine. The quality of the tannins is incredible with fantastic length and mouthfeel. So much concentration and balance at the same time. Such beauty. From biodynamic grapes. This is the greatest wine ever from here. " (12/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This vintage is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, ...Read More »

2015 La Parde de Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine has a fine, dense texture that is impressive with its smooth velvet character. The tannins are dark, solid and show a dry side to balance the beautiful juicy fruit. Although this is a second wine, it does have the structure of a wine more senior than that. (RV)" (04/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "Pure fruit here in a reserved and focused presentation with just a hint of dried roses. Full body, integrated tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Shows focus and brightness. Second wine of Château Haut-B ...Read More »

2001 Branon, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In principle, this is the luxury cuvee from the vineyards of Haut-Bergey. The spectacular 2000 Branon is one of the exceptional efforts of Pessac-Leognan, and the 2001 is outstanding. Aromas of melted licorice, smoke, crushed stones, truffles, and black currants are followed by an elegant, medium to full-bodied, pure, dense wine with no hard edges. (RP)" (06/2004) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, full medium ruby. Very ripe, showy nose melds raspberry, cassis, chocolate liqueur and ...Read More »

2006 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

97 points Decanter: "Colour still tight and inky at 10 years old. Smooth, silky, very expressive; this is so powerful it almost lulls you into a false sense of security with the tannin integration on the first attack. Deceptively concentrated, this has persistency and freshness, plus layers of crushed black fruits, tar, cigar smoke and saffron. Right up there with the best wines of the tasting. (JA)" (03/2018) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Wonderful sweet fruit, velvet in texture, with concentrated ripe fruits and red berries. This is a wine that rolls s ...Read More »

2008 Branon, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sleeper of the vintage, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2008 Branon displays chocolatey, earthy undertones intermixed with black currants and Asian plum sauce. Medium to full-bodied, rich, impressively endowed, supple and evolved, it can be drunk over the next 10-12 years. (RP)" (05/2011) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Serious, full red-red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, tobacco, mocha and chocolate. Dense, sweet, chewy and concentrated; broad but not heavy. Sweet berry flavo ...Read More »

2002 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, smoked meat and warm stones. Dry, classic and deep, but quite closed today, even a bit youthfully austere. Finishes very long, with substantial dusty tannins and brisk acids. Much more backward today than the Haut-Brion, despite possessing a lower indice de polyphenols totaux (65, compared to 70). But both of these wines really call for at least six or seven years of cellaring. 91(+?) points. (ST)" (05/2005) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Bright aromas o ...Read More »
