100 points Wine & Spirits: "If a wine could ever make you want to pull the top down on your '68 Ferrari convertible, rip off the rearview mirror and take off, this is it. It has a different kind of energy than the '02 Cristal Rosé, which is more ethereal, like strawberries at the right hand of some ancient Gallic god. This is more insolent, brash, earth bound. All the scents and flavors seem to emanate from limestone, as does the acidity, which hits at the front of the mouth and powers through the wine with the kind of solar energy that lifts mist off th...

2002 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "A very composed Champagne with plenty of still fresh lemon and white cherry fruits on offer. There's impressive clarity, power and richness here. The nose has candied peach, strawberry, white cherry and grilled nuts. Very flavorsome palate with pastry flavors adding savory notes to the stone fruits and citrus. Toasted almonds and chalky minerals define the long finish. Still so young and powerful!" (10/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Brut Cuvée Nicolas François was disgorged in January 2015 with four ...

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, graphite, mint and chocolate, plus a whiff of band-aid. Then surprisingly pliant and creamy for a Dunn cabernet, with accessible flavors of currant, licorice and milk chocolate. Finishes with rather suave tannins and some juicy acidity. Suppler than it appeared to be last spring when I tasted it from barrel, and considerably softer than the Howell Mountain bottling. (ST)" (01/2006)
Price: $84.99

According to Robert Parker: "Scents of plums, dried herbs, black cherries, currants, and a hint of coffee beans rise from the glass of this dark ruby-colored, pleasant, attractively supple, easy-going 2002." (04/05)

2002 Domaine de Baraillon 16 Year Old Folle Blanche Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
Top Pick!
We've been carrying the Baraillon Armagnacs for three years now and it's been a match made in heaven for K&L, the Claverie family, and our customers—we're their biggest account and their biggest fans. There's something special about walking into the tasting room at Baraillon, which is really just a little hut next to their home with plastic furniture and humble offerings (like fresh fois gros straight from the farm next door). Mr. Baraillon will come in from feeding the pigs wearing rubber boots, while his daughter Laurence stands by quietly, yet does mo...

92 points James Suckling: "This shows a beautiful balance, with sweet, ripe berries, minerals, violets and schist. Medium body, fine tannins and a long, fresh finish. This is a late-bottled vintage that is not filtered or refined." (03/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Late Bottled Vintage Port is unfiltered and bottled with a long cork. Elegant and aromatic, this is a beautiful achievement in a very difficult vintage in Douro. Showing terrific concentration for the vintage, it has mild tannins at this point and controlled flavor...

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full ruby-red. Serious, deep aromas of black raspberry, blackcurrant and smoke; more medicinal and less floral than the 2003. Then plump and lush in the mouth, with an early voluptuousness rare for a Forman Cabernet. Very rich, pliant wine that's not at all roasted. In fact, this wine's verve suggests it will be even better with several years in the bottle. Finishes with substantial but thoroughly ripe tannins Forman inoculates his Cabernet with a yeast generically called 'cepage Cabernet' (prod...

2002 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac
Back In Stock!
95 points Decanter: "Opulent yet restrained aromas which give the impression of ripeness. A sense of hedonism pervades here – and it’s very welcome too. Long and elegant with good depth of fruit, well woven tannins and a long, sensuous finish. " 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good saturated ruby-red. Tight nose hints at currant and smoky oak. Highly concentrated, densely packed and built to age. As young as it is, it also shows a lovely velvety texture rare for this vintage. Finishes with terrific breadth, subtle minerality and n...

Robert Parker has consistently praised Manfred and Elaine Kankl, and his feelings toward the 2002 vintage were no exception. In 2006, he said, "Longtime readers know that I consider these offerings to be about as remarkable as New World wines can be." And in 2011: "His meticulous craftsmanship and phenomenal attention to detail, both in the vineyard and in the winery, have been increasingly noticeable over the last decade. He seemed to hit full stride about eight or nine years ago, and what has unfolded since then is an absolutely brilliant succession of...

Wine Spectator: "Intense and deeply concentrated, with a rich, complex, firmly tannic core of leathery currant, espresso, mocha and herb notes. This massive youngster needs cellaring; with time, it may show more finesse and grace. (JL)" (05/2005) K&L Notes: From Wine Spectator: "Intense and deeply concentrated, with a rich, complex, firmly tannic core of leathery currant, espresso, mocha and herb notes. This massive youngster needs cellaring; with time, it may show more finesse and grace. Best from 2008 through 2013. 300 cases made." (May 2005)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-brick colored, the 2002 Integrity is a 100% Shiraz that displays evolved leather and tobacco notes intermingled with some meaty and gamey aromas and nuances of coffee, olives and underbrush. Full bodied, it has a coffee flavors in the mouth, medium levels of velvety tannins, and a medium-high acid backbone. It finishes long with notes of eucalyptus showing through.

95 points Wine Spectator: "Bubbling over with crushed berries, currants and spices, with tobacco notes. Beautiful. Full-bodied, with gorgeously velvety tannins and a long finish of pretty fruit. This is a racy yet elegant Lafite. Classy. *Collectibles* (JS)" (03/2005) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage, this is classic Lafite that reminded me somewhat of the 1976, although the vintage conditions were completely different. This is a medium-weight, quintessentially elegant style of Lafit...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest Grenache based wine I have tasted from California is Manfred Krankl’s 2000 Incognito, but his 2002 More Than A Number (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah) is nearly as good. The bulk of the grapes come from the Alban Vineyard along with significant quantities from Stolpman and Shadow Canyon vineyards. The wine spent 19 months in wood prior to being bottled with neither fining nor filtration. There are only a measly 110 cases of this nectar. Its dense purple color is accompanied by a spectacular bouquet of lico...

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, deep ruby-red. Subdued but ripe aromas of currant, flowers and sweet oak. Much less forthcoming than the basic Cabernet bottling, but with denser flavors of currant and chocolate. A serious, structured wine with good stuffing and power. Finishes with firm tannins that reach the incisors. (ST)" (05/2005)
Price: $199.00


94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium ruby. High-pitched aromas of black and red fruits complicated by hints of orange and pineapple as well as eucalyptus and peach pit. Very tight and sharply delineated in the middle palate, with a suggestion of blueberry pie. Then expands spectacularly on the back half, finishing with very fine but firm tannins and terrific definition of flavor. Yet more evidence of the high quality of this vineyard for syrah." (05/2004)

90 points and 1 Puff from Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "60% Cabernet Sauvignon; 12% Cabernet Franc; 24% Merlot; 4% Petit Verdot. Those with lots of time on their hands and lots of faith in the future are going to find their cup of tannin in this rich, creamy, fairly well-filled wine whose ripe cherry and currant center comes with more than a modest dose of latter-palate astringency. Ample fruit invites a half decade of cellaring and near-certain reward." (Volume 29 Issue 10: August 2005)

Distillation of eau de vie at Chateau Ravignan dates back officially to at least 1791 during the French Revolution, but by historical account back to 1731. That’s when the ancestor of Josselin de Ravignan purchased the estate and declared on an official record that some of wine made from the property’s grapes would be used for distillation. At that time, however, it wasn’t known as Armagnac. Distilled spirits were used for a number of medicinal purposes, poured into wine for fortification, and given to sailors to help disinfect their water supplies durin...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beautiful floral notes intermixed with creme de cassis, licorice and charcoal jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored 2002. Opulent, broad, full-bodied and more mature than I expected given how this wine showed in its youth, this deep, rich Cabernet Sauvignon is exceptional. However, in this vintage it has to take a back seat to a number of other cuvees. The final blend was 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The #7 Grande Cuvee Trockenbeerenauslese Nouvelle Vague –as usual from Chardonnay and Welschriesling – smells of apple jelly, pineapple, litchi, mango and banana with overtones of cherry and marzipan. Full and rich on the palate, this handles its enormous sweetness by preserving juicy essences of its diverse fruits and displaying only a subtle, lovely hint of caramelization (although more will surely emerge as the wine matures). Even the marzipan note seems to be imbedded with fresh almonds, and a subtle sense of...

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2002 Domaine des Chézeaux (Ponsot) Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru. Domaine des Chézeaux remains one of Burgundy's best kept secrets in collectible wines. This is the side-project made from leased vines by none other than the living legend Laurent Ponsot. This wine is the same wine as that sold under the Ponsot label, except for the paper sticker on the bottle. Oh, and the price? A fraction of that under Ponsot's own label. Such are the joys of share-cropping.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (96WE, 93WS, 92ST, 91RP). Wine Enthusiast: "Surprisingly lively and fresh, this is still a seriously impressive wine. The high proportion of Semillon is now coming to dominate the Sauvignon, to give a wine that is finely shaped, full of creamy flavors of wood and some white peach. In 10 years, this will still be fresh, in 15 just mature. (RV)" (06/2005)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Arrowood "Reserve Speciale" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from the estate’s finest fruit and aged 23 or more months in a combination of French and American oak, it comes from multiple sources in Sonoma, including the Monte Rosso Vineyard (now owned by Gallo). A wine of great stature and richness, it boasts an inky/ruby/purple color along with a stunning bouquet of loamy, dusty soil, lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, licorice and barrique smells. Full-bodied and opulent, with some tannin still to be shed, it is a classic, All-American style of northern California Cabernet Sauvignon that is approaching middle adolescence. It has another 20-25 years of life left. Bravo! (RP)" (06/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Behrens & Hitchcock "Dr. Crane Cuvee" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend ((94-96RP), 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The inky/purple 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Crane is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2002 Lagrange, St-Julien (92WS, 90RP, 90ST). Wine Spectator: "Pretty aromas of blackberries and currants, with hints of lead pencil. Full-bodied, yet very balanced, with a solid core of fruit and ultrafine tannins. Really well-crafted wine. Lagrange often excels in less than easy vintages, like 2002.

Bid on this magnum of 2002 Merus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (94RP, 94ST, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has tightened down considerably since I first had it, which surprised me. Its dense opaque bluish/purple color offers up notes of charred wood and barbecue smoke as well as oodles of blackberry jam, licorice, and camphor. Some graphite also makes an impression in this full-bodied, massive and muscular, yet impressively built and multi-dimensional Cabernet Sauvignon. This cross-valley blend has turned out exceptionally well, but it is still a good 4-5 years away from full maturity, where it should stay for 15-20 years. (RP)" (06/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Patz & Hall "Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Pinot Noir (93RP, 93WS, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The next vintage tasted was the 2002 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard, which was a fabulous vintage in Northern California. Aged in 70% new French oak and 100% from the three Dijon clones of Pinot Noir, this wine, relatively powerful at 14.6% alcohol, showed notes of damp earth, sweet plum, black raspberry and forest floor, in a ripe, dense, surprisingly juicy, round, full-bodied style. This wine is in great shape and will continue to evolve for another 5-10 years. (RP)" (04/2016)

A Champagne of vertical thrust and intensity, the 2002 is rich, opulent and hedonistic from the very first taste. Readers should expect a Rosé built on a huge core of fruit. Rose petal, passion fruit and exotic flowers add shades of dimension to the wine’s decidedly flamboyant personality. What a wine! (AG)" (07/2019)

Bid on this magnum of 2002 Rudd "Oakville Estate" Napa Valley Proprietary Red (1.5L) (OWC - 94RP, (92-94WS), 92ST) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still firm, backward and atypically youthful for a 2002, Rudd’s blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot displays enormous promise, but it needs to be forgotten for another 3-5 years. Its inky/blue/purple color is followed by notes of graphite, roasted coffee, subtle barbecue smoke, blackberries, blueberries and hints of acacia flowers, ink and camphor. Rich, full-bodied and layered, it should be at its peak between 2017-2037. " (06/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Egly-Ouriet Champagne Grand Cru Brut Millésimé (93ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(70% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay): Light yellow-gold. Fresh orchard and pit fruits on the deeply scented nose, with notes of musky rhubarb and smoky minerals emerging with air. Deeply pitched poached pear and nectarine flavors show impressive power and are lifted by notes of chalk and ginger. Packs a serious punch but manages to come off as elegant. Finishes very long, with a strong jolt of minerality and slow-building leesiness. (ST)" (12/2013)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2002 Quilceda Creek Washington Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 97WE, 93ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Almost as good as the 2003, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc that spent 22 months in 100% new French oak. Its youthful purple/ruby color is followed by gorgeously complex and intense aromas of wild herbs, exotic spices, caramelized beef, licorice and layers of sweet black fruits and creamy black cherry-like nuances. Full-bodied, rich and incredibly youthful, it opens up beautifully in the glass and is a total thrill ride of a Washington State Cabernet. I’d enjoy bottles over the coming decade, but it will hold longer. (JD)" (06/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96JD, 96RP, 93ST, 93WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This appears to be one of the great efforts from Chateau Montelena, something I think I was correct about when I gave it an 'in the bottle' rating in 2006 of 95+. It is still an amazingly young wine that came from old vines on the famous St. George rootstock that did not require replanting because of the phylloxera epidemic that swept through Napa in the late 1980's and 1990's. Despite its lofty 14.4% alcohol (high by Montelena standards) and the overall flamboyance of the 2002 vintage, it needs another 4-6 years of cellaring. This young, classic Cabernet Sauvignon represents the quintessential traditional school of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. It possesses an inky/blue/purple color in addition to a tight, but promising nose of black currants, crushed rocks, earth and spice. Rich, full-bodied, pure and brilliantly executed, with perfect harmon

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Cask 23" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92CG, 91ST, 91W&S, 90WE). Connoisseurs Guide: "The most complex of the Stag's Leap lot, this fascinating effort is simply brimming with ripe cherries and very rich oak and shows intriguing touches of leather, coffee, cocoa and caramel throughout its length. It is fairly full and broad on the palate with fine balance and a mannerly, well-polished feel, and, if a slight touch of last-minute tannin jumps up at its finish, there is no doubt that a few years in bottle with smooth things out completely. *Two Stars*" (04/2006)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Spottswoode "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 94DC, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In 2002 very small yields produced only about 3,000 cases at 14.7% natural alcohol and a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. This wine is going from strength to strength since I first tasted it prior to bottling. Now a perfect wine, the incredible perfume of blueberries, black raspberries and cassis, along with white flowers and camphor is extraordinarily fragrant and intense. That is easily matched by the magnificent full-bodied richness and compellingly layered mouthfeel of this wine that is rich, full-bodied and a still youthful vintage that remains capable of another 25-30 years of cellaring. This is a dramatic vintage for Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and it is always fascinating to taste a top winery’s 2001 and 2002 next to each other because they are both such great years. However, the 2002s tend to be the more flamboyant

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne (98VN, 97DC, 96RP, 96W&S, 95WS). Vinous: "The 2002 Dom Pérignon is unforgettable. Rich, sumptuous and flamboyant to the core, the 2002 captures all of the radiance of a year in which ripeness in the Chardonnays was pushed to the edge. The 2002 is oily and viscous on the palate, with tremendous textural resonance in all of its dimensions. Tropical fruit, pastry and exotic floral notes all build as the 2002 opens up with air. I can still remember the first time I tasted the 2002, here in the Hautvillers cloister, with former Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy. It was thrilling back then, and is every bit as memorable today.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 97VN, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Monte Bello is stunning, bursting from the glass with an expressive nose of ripe blackcurrants, crème de cassis, dried cherries, burning embers, pencil lead, loamy soil and a perfumed top note of lavender. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, lavish and expansive, cutting a broad swathe across the palate, with a deep, concentrated core of succulent fruit that's framed by ripe, plush tannins, concluding with a lingering finish. At age 16, the 2002 is truly singing, so anyone with bottles in their cellar is due for a treat. The blend is 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot, and it attained 13.3% alcohol. Unusually, fully 13% was matured in new French oak—with the balance, as usual, in new American oak. (WK)" (05/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the best wines of the vintage, this is a classic Pauillac that is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot. Dense ruby/purple in color with a glorious nose of melted licorice, lavender, barbecue smoke, black currants, and graphite, the wine is tannic, classically structured with an opaque ruby/purple color, beautiful definition, and a 1996-ish personality. This deep, full-bodied, elegant yet powerful 2002 should age handsomely for over two decades. Some patience will be required since this vintage exhibits more muscle and virility than normal.

Bid on this half-bottle lot of 2002 Sine Qua Non "E" California Rosé (375ml). Robert Parker has consistently praised Manfred and Elaine Kankl, and his feelings toward the 2002 vintage were no exception. In 2006, he said, "Longtime readers know that I consider these offerings to be about as remarkable as New World wines can be." And in 2011: "His meticulous craftsmanship and phenomenal attention to detail, both in the vineyard and in the winery, have been increasingly noticeable over the last decade. He seemed to hit full stride about eight or nine years ago, and what has unfolded since then is an absolutely brilliant succession of true works of genius, both in his expressive, sometimes slightly abstract artwork on the labels, to the meticulously crafted wood boxes in which the wines are housed. Of course, the most important thing of all, the actual wine itself, is both the beginning as well as the end for consumers, and where 100% of my focus and judgement are centered."

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2002 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien (1.5L). 90 points Wine Spectator: "Beautiful aromas of licorice, currants and berries follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a seductive finish. Well-crafted. Not overdone. Best after 2007." (03/05) 90 points Robert Parker: "The saturated ruby/plum-tinged 2002 reveals a tight but promising nose of underbrush, new saddle leather, damp earth, black currants and cherries. It is a strongly structured, potent effort with medium to full body, and impressive purity, but loads of tannin presented in a frightfully backward style. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. I seem to consistently underrate this wine when it is young." (04/05)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Giuseppe Quintarelli "Rosso del Bepi" Veneto (91VN, 90WE). Vinous: "The 2002 Rosso del Bepi shows all the Quintarelli signatures, but in miniature, as is the case when the estate declassifies its Amarone juice into this bottling. Juicy dark cherries, flowers and spices all blossom in the glass in a perfumed, mid-weight wine endowed with lovely balance. The 2002 boasts gorgeous inner perfume, but logically not the body or richness of the Quintarelli Amarones. Still, it is a very pretty wine, especially if taken on its own terms. (AG)" (03/2014)
