2015 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on an 80/20 split of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Barde-Haut is a tour de force and a spectacular wine any way you look at it. Crème de cassis, dried flowers, earth, and loads of limestone-like minerality all flow to a full-bodied, opulent wine that has sweet tannins and a great mid-palate. Drink this uber-sexy beauty any time over the coming 15+ years. " (10/2018) 95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, blueberries, wet earth and black tea.

2015 Figeac, St-Émilion

100 points Decanter: "From the very first sip you see why certain wines just have a hold on the imagination. This has the full intensity of St-Émilion with none of the need to shout about it or push its point home. It's just effortlessly intense and confident, with flavours of liquorice, pencil shavings, damson and cassis. It has wonderful freshness and balance, and full grip from firm tannins. Complex and persistent, this is an absolute joy to taste. 100% new oak. Drinking Window 2023 - 2042. (JA) " (12/2017) 100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A hold onto your ...Read More »

2015 Laroze, St.-Emilion

94 points Decanter: "The Merlin family have pulled out the stops at Laroze in recent years, and it really shows in this 2015. This really does showcase the Cabernet, and you could almost be fooled into thinking this is from the Médoc if it wasn't for the soft creaminess of the tannins that comes in behind the grilled almond oak aromas, and liquorice and dark chocolate flavours. It's elegant and restrained, but it means business. Drinking Window 2023 - 2038. (JA)" (12/2017) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Checking in as 62% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Fran ...Read More »

James Suckling: "This is a little over extracted but could turn out to be outstanding in the end due to the beautiful ripe fruit and intensity. " (04/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Petit Faurie Soutard has a clean and pure bouquet with lifted black cherry and blueberry fruit that appear well-defined and in sync with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of sweet tannin, a lot of extract here leading to a slightly cloying finish that needs to muster more freshness, more backbone.

1990 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 Cheval Blanc is fast becoming my favorite modern-day vintage of this Saint Emilion estate and perhaps the 1990 is now exiting the slip-steam of the feted 1982. This is unequivocally a brilliant wine. The nose holds nothing back, a line of senses all doing the conga towards your olfactory senses: macerated dark cherries, exotic kirsch-like aromas, leather, mahogany bureau, touches of crème de cassis and herbs all vie for attention. The palate is full-bodied and cloaked in a silky, velvety texture that lea ...Read More »

Dark berries and hints of sea salt on the finish. Steely minerality and freshness. Wow. Drink in 2024 but so interesting to taste." (02/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A total blockbuster from new owner Peter Kwok, who purchased the estate in 2012, the 2015 Château Tour Saint Christophe is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc brought up in 40% new wood.

A blend of 75% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, this full-bodied, ripe, sexy beauty boasts terrific notes of cherries, crème de cassis, chocolate, and hints of charcoal. It has present tannin, yet they’re sweet and integrated, solid mid-palate depth and a great finish, all making for one seriously delicious 2015 to drink over the coming 10-15 years."

So much going on in the glass. Try after 2018." (02/2012) 96 points Wine Spectator: "This is well-cloaked for now in roasted vanilla and espresso notes, but there’s ample, fleshy fig sauce and mulled blackberry fruit in reserve.

2016 Truquet, St-Émilion

Wine Enthusiast: "From vines on the plateau to the west of the village of Saint-Émilion, this is a light, fruity wine. Its acidity and tannic structure lend a crisp texture to its black currant fruit. It will probably broaden as it matures, so drink from 2019. (RV)" (12/2017)

2010 Canon-La-Gaffelière, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "This takes the power of the vintage and puts it in its pocket for later, preferring instead to let mouthwatering briar, loganberry, mulberry and blackberry fruit strut its way forward, enlivened with roasted wood spice and supported by suavely but thoroughly embedded iron-tinged structure. Should cruise for two decades. Best from 2016 through 2035. *Top 100 Wines of 2013, No. 2* (JM)" (03/2013) 94-95 points James Suckling: "This is tight and powerful. Solid frame of fruit and tannins.

Love the texture and intensity. Chalky. Amazing. Goes on for minutes. Try in 2023." (02/2018) 97 points Vinous: "The 2015 Larcis Ducasse is just as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel. Rose petal, lavender, spice and mint give it an attractive upper register that melds seamlessly into a core of inky red and purplish fruit.

Give it two or three years to come together. Better in 2021. " (02/2018) 92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The Merlot dominated 2015 Château Belle Assise Coureau is a smoking value that I suspect can be found for even less than the listed retail price.

Nothing is out place; instead, in 2016 Larcis impresses with its poise, depth and centeredness. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, chocolate, spice and lavender infuse the creamy, resonant finish, and all the richness of this south-facing site comes through loud and clear. Quite simply, the 2016 is an exceptional Larcis. Don't miss it! (AG)" (04/2017) 94-97 points Win ...Read More »

It is rich, full-bodied, moderately tannic, but low in acidity and quite heady and powerful (15% natural alcohol).

" (04/2016) 93 points Decanter: "There has been a renewed interest in this property over the past few months because it has just been bought by Château Canon, and in 2015 you can clearly see the potential.

This full-bodied, expansive, super concentrated 2015 is a hedonistic dream and has exceptional purity, balance, and equilibrium.

There is good persistency, with touches of minerality and salinity. It's my favourite of the Janoueix range, and again a testament to 2015 in the smaller right bank appellations.

Wine Spectator: "Medium-garnet in color, with a ruby center. Pretty floral, berry and dried cherry aromas. Medium-bodied, with tobacco and fruit flavors.

Critics have noted that the 1982 Angélus, however, represents the château's earlier style, before changes in production were made in the mid-1980s.

Bright, red-toned fruit, mint, spice, lavender and rose petal overtones flesh out in the glass, but above all else, Figeac is a wine of total harmony. The Grand Vin includes 10% second generation fruit. Even so, production is down around 50%. (AG)" (05/2018) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Juicy fruit and delic ...Read More »

2017 Tertre Roteboeuf, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

The medium to full-bodied palate is very firm with ripe, grainy tannins and wonderful freshness and depth, finishing very long with some exotic spices coming through.

2016 La Gaffelière, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This is a firmly structured wine, its tannins dominating the potential of the ripe fruit.

2016 Puy-Blanquet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Puy-Blanquet is rich, supple and inviting. Moreover, the 2016 shows just how appealing the vintage is, even among lesser-known properties. Dark stone fruit and spice notes flesh out in a hugely delicious, creamy Saint-Émilion that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Although not especially complex, Puy-Blanquet is absolutely delicious. (AG)" (04/2017) 88-91 points Wine Spectator: "Pretty, with red currant and plum fruit bouncing along, backed by enticing floral and spice notes. Stays fresh on the finish, with a light ...Read More »

1989 Beau-Sejour Becot, St. Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted side by side with the 1990, it is interesting how much more tannic the 1989 seems to be. Colored a dark plum with some lightening at the edge, the nose shows notes of compost, melted licorice, oak, and black cherry fruit. The overt oakiness noticeable in its youth has become far more subtle and less aggressive. In the mouth the wine starts off large-scaled, fleshy, and fat, but then some relatively astringent tannins kick in in the finish. This has been a perplexing wine to follow, since it was seemingly softer and ...Read More »

2016 Larcis Ducasse, St-Emilion 12-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Vinous: "The 2016 Larcis Ducasse is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Silky, supple and gracious to the core, it possesses exceptional textural finesse and nuance from start to finish. Nothing is out place; instead, in 2016 Larcis impresses with its poise, depth and centeredness. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, chocolate, spice and lavender infuse the creamy, resonant finish, and all the richness of this south-facing site comes through loud and clear. Quite simply, the 2016 is an exceptional Larcis. Don't miss it! (AG)" (04/2017) 94-97 points Win ...Read More »

1990 Beau-Sejour Becot, St. Emilion

91 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive wine. Dark ruby color. Lovely aromas of raspberries, chocolate and flowers. Full-bodied and very chewy. Still holding back yet there's fruit under it all.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. (JS)" (08/2000) 90 points Vinous: "Red cherries, strawberry, rose petals and a touch of sous-bois, conveying more tension than the preceding vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy opening: quite meaty in style, nicely judged acidity and fine cohesion; not complex but well balanced with an appealing savory finish that is i ...Read More »

2016 Fonplégade, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Fonplegade opens with a very savory nose of smoked meats, tapenade, sautéed herbs and beef drippings over a core of plum preserves, chocolate-covered cherries and cedar chest plus wafts of violets and cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate possesses both intensity and elegance, with the black fruit layers superbly framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.
