98-99 points James Suckling: "This is a big and muscular wine with great structure and depth of fruit. Blackberry and blueberry character. Hints of fresh leaves. Cool earth. Incredible depth, yet so polished. Concentrated." (04/2019) 97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The top wine of the estate as well as one of the wines of the vintage, the 2018 Château Montrose is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc brought up in 60% new French oak. Crème de cassis, smoky oak, graphite, and violet notes all emerge from this magical Montrose that has thrilli...

96 points James Suckling: "Wild nose. Impressive, deep hue and a wealth of fresh, violet-like aromas, as well as cassis, graphite and dark cherries. The palate has a very sleek, fine, powerful core of tannins that bring a lot of depth and deliver rich dark-fruit flavor. A classic Meyney. Best since 1961!" (02/2019) 95 points Vinous: "The 2016 Meyney has a very deep color. The bouquet is a stunner, delivering intense, mineral-rich black fruit pixelated to the nth degree. This is extremely focused and conveys the energy of a tightly coiled spring. The ex...
Price: $339.00

94 points Decanter: "This is clearly one of the most concentrated d’Armailhacs that has been produced in recent decades owing to the extremely small and concentrated berries, especially Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested at the end of the growing season. It’s also one of the best, with clear personality and power, and although still the least complex of the three Pauillacs in the Mouton stable, it should offer the best value giving a ton of rich fruit and cigar box frisson. 5% Petit Verdot makes up the blend. 3.7pH. Tasted several times – always with the same...

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is at once notably ripe yet agreeably fresh with its aromas of poached plum, spice and earth. There is excellent mid-palate density to the delicious and plush middle weight flavors that exhibit fine length and depth for a wine at this level plus it will age if desired. Recommended. *Outstanding*" (01/2021) Vinous: "The 2019 Bourgogne Rouge has quite a boisterous bouquet of upfront blackberry and iodine aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, modest depth, mulberry flavors and a light briny influence on ...
Price: $34.99

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This powerful wine combines juicy black fruits with concentrated tannins to good effect. This density and grip lends to excellent aging potential. (RV)" (04/2019) 92-95 points Vinous: "The 2018 Malartic Lagravière is powerful, rich and explosive, all while retaining a mid-weight sense of structure. Black cherry, plum, gravel, chocolate, leather, lavender spice and licorice all run through this driving, juicy Pessac Léognan. I very much admire the weight and substance here. (AG)" (04/2019) 95 points Decanter: "Deep and r...

99-100 points James Suckling: "This shows beautiful sensibility of generous fruit and soft and velvety tannins with an undertone of chocolate and cedar. Full-bodied, pure and supple with a direct delivery of vibrant fruit and real terroir expression. Savory at the end with hazelnut and crunchy-seed flavors. Reality check here. Incredible fruit quality." (04/2019) 97-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'This year we have slightly less Cabernet Franc in the blend because we are only using the oldest vines, planted by my grandfather, as a tribute,'...

2015 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino Riserva  (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Altesino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (with 10,000 bottles made) shows a tight and firm delivery with the abundant fruit and the generous richness that is associated with this warm and sunny vintage. The wine is fermented in steel vats and ages in Slavonian oak casks for three years. The tannins are nicely integrated, however the wine's solid structure will carry it forward over the years. (ML)" (11/2020) 94 points James Suckling: "A very pretty Brunello now with sweet berry, orange-peel and cedar ar...
Price: $99.99

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A strikingly fresh and expressive nose offers up a variety of pepper and earth-inflected red berry aromas. There is a lovely sense of energy to the delicious flavors that display both better than average complexity and persistence for what this is plus it should reward a few years of cellaring. *Burghound Outstanding!!*" (04/2020) John Gilman: "The 2018 Cuvée Exception is a lovely, red fruity example of the vintage. The complex bouquet offers up scents of cherries, cranberries, a lovely base of soil, bonfire, a nice touch of...

2019 Léoville Barton, St-Julien 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The vivid purple, almost blue-hued 2019 Château Léoville Barton is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine that includes 16% Merlot. It will spend 18 months in a mix of new and used barrels. Classic Barton notes of cassis, scorched earth, burning embers, new leather, and violets emerge from the glass, and this beauty is full-bodied, massively concentrated, and structured on the palate, yet it has a beautiful elegance as well as a plushness in its texture. It reminds me of the 1990 and is a great, great wine in the making. If you lo...

2018 Domaine Alain Voge Cornas Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the 2018 Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes, this beauty is cut from the same cloth as the Les Chailles yet is deeper and richer, with another level of concentration. Black and blue fruits, ground pepper, violets, smoked game, and loads of spring flower notes define the bouquet, and it has a vibrant, almost old school vibe that carries plenty of power yet still stays light and elegant on the palate. This beautiful, singular wine is open and enjoyable today, yet I wouldn't be surprised to see it close down with a year or two of b...

2018 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97-98 points James Suckling: "A structured and muscular Malescot with blackberry and blackcurrant aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Big wine for this producer. " (04/2019) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Malescot St. Exupery comes prancing out of the glass with flamboyant raspberry coulis, kirsch and redcurrant jelly scents over a fresh blackcurrant and boysenberry core with wafts of red roses, cinnamon stick and forest floor. Full-bodied, rich and opulent in the mout...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Conterno Fantino 2016 Barolo Castelletto Vigna Pressenda (with 6,500 bottles produced) draws its fruit from a 1.2-hectare site in Monforte d'Alba with silty soils mixed with sand and clay. It opens to bright cherry and dried raspberry that set the tone for the abundant primary fruit that defines the bouquet. Those red berry flavors cede to cola, spice, mint and rosemary essence. There is an almost exotic quality here spurred forward by pressed blue flower and church incense. However, the big takeaway here is ...

2017 Fontodi "Vigna del Sorbo" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is a dense, packed wine. It is also surprisingly, almost shockingly backward. That is probably a good thing for its long-term aging prospects. Readers hoping to get an early glimpse into the 2017 before it shuts down may have a hard time doing that, as today acids and tannin dominate. I expect the 2017 will be stellar in another 4-5 years and drink well to age 25-30 if not longer. Proprietor Giovanni Manetti gave the 2017 18 months in barrique followed by 6 months in cask. (AG) 9...
Price: $79.99

100 points James Suckling: "This is a wine with fabulous scale and depth, as well as perfectly polished and refined tannins and wonderful length. Full body, yet so balanced and refined. The combination of focused fruit, tight tannins and bright acidity gives this incredible length. What a wine? A new sensibility to the whole thing. Drink or hold." (06/2018) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a gorgeous wine. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is just as impressive now as when I first tasted it three years ago. The only edit I ...

2015 La Gaffelière, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points Vinous: "The 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine of total finesse. Much less obvious and overt than most Saint-Émilions in this vintage, La Gaffelière makes its case on harmony and grace above all else. Bright, lifted Cabernet Franc-infused aromatics give the 2015 striking freshness and aromatic presence. The flavors are bright and nuanced to the core, with plenty of red cherry, espresso and floral notes. But back to the basics. In 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine that stands out because of its impeccable balance and sense of proportion. I loved it. Taste...

2018 Fattoria Le Pupille "Saffredi" Maremma Toscana (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "A fantastic nose to this with currant, sage, rosemary and rose-petal character. Sweet tobacco and spicy chocolate, too. Very complex. The palate shows lovely depth of fruit with blackberries, blackcurrants and fine tannins. It’s racy and refined with a direct, focused palate. Just a baby." (07/2020) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Fattoria le Pupille 2018 Saffredi borrows quite a bit from all of the grapes that make up the blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot). These balanced results open to a roun...
Price: $89.99

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Deeply colored, the 2018 Château Barde-Haut gives up a powerful, yet elegant profile that carries beautiful black cherry, chocolate, liquid violets, and hints of minerality. It's medium to full-bodied, has beautiful mid-palate depth, integrated acidity, and thrilling tannin quality, which isn’t a given in the vintage. Opening up with time in the glass, it shows more and more minerality and freshness, and is flawlessly balanced. In short, it’s beautiful Saint-Émilion readers will love to have in their cellar. 94-96+" (05/2019) ...

2013 Massolino "Vigna Rionda" Barolo Riserva (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Hailing from one of the most celebrated vineyards in the entire denomination, this focused beauty boasts layers of complexity and depth, starting with its classic Nebbiolo aromas of forest floor, new leather, violet and wild berry. Balanced and firmly structured, the palate shows tension, power and elegance, delivering succulent Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, tobacco and licorice alongside firm, aristocratic tannins. It's still young but already beautifully balanced, with bright acidity. *Cellar Selection* (KO)" (10/2019) ...

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Rocking stuff, the 2018 Clos du Marquis checks in 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc that hit 14.5% alcohol with a healthy pH of 3.64 and an IPT of 79. It boasts a deep, saturated purple color as well as ripe, powerful, yet complex aromatics. Full-bodied and rich, with a stacked mid-palate, this beauty builds on the palate with ripe, polished tannin, ample oomph, and a great finish. It’s a powerful, concentrated wine from the team at Léoville Las Cases that will benefit from 5-7 years of bottle age and ke...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Even better (as well as a perfect wine), the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Collection Charles Giraud checks in as a nominal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre that was brought up in demi-muids. It reveals a deep purple color as well as heavenly notes of blackberry and currant fruits intermixed with loads of cured meats, spice box, Asian spices, and a distinct loamy soil and minerality. Always more structured and powerful than the Reserve Auguste Favier release (no doubt due to the Mourvèdre component), it hits the palate with ful...

2016 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "Stunning concentration of perfectly ripe blackcurrants here with a delicate whiff of vanilla oak and extremely fine tannins that are almost perfectly integrated on the seductive and delicate palate, right through the almost literally breathtaking, super-long and very polished finish." (01/2019) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Tasted on two separate occasions, the 2016 Château Pape Clément never failed to disappoint, offering a huge, powerful, full-bodied personality as well as beautiful notes of cassis, graphite, high-class cigar tob...

2018 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The grand vin of this terrific estate, the 2018 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is based on 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that will spend 18 months in new barrels. It’s as classy as they come, boasting a deep purple/blue color as well as awesome notes of pure crème de cassis, smoke tobacco, crushed rock-like minerality, and violets. Haute couture at its finest, with full-bodied richness, building structure and tannins, and remarkable purity, it’s certainly in the same ballpark as the magical 2016. It will be approachable in ...

97-98 points James Suckling: "A structured and muscular Malescot with blackberry and blackcurrant aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Big wine for this producer. " (04/2019) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Malescot St. Exupery comes prancing out of the glass with flamboyant raspberry coulis, kirsch and redcurrant jelly scents over a fresh blackcurrant and boysenberry core with wafts of red roses, cinnamon stick and forest floor. Full-bodied, rich and opulent in the mout...

90-91 points James Suckling: "Solid core of fruit to this medium-bodied red. Ripe tannins and chocolate and hazelnut undertones to the fruity finish." (04/2019)
Price: $16.99

98 points James Suckling: "This is a very linear red and layered at the same time, showing blackberry, blueberry, black-truffle, bark and stone character. Chalk and minerality, too. It’s full-bodied and well framed with gorgeous intensity and freshness. Muscular with wonderful structure and brightness. Salty and savory notes on the finish. " (01/2020) 97 points Decanter: "There's clear depth just in the colour alone, and impressive complexity on the nose. There's still a whole lot of Troplong strength and concentration here, you can't get away from tha...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot and matured in 60% new oak for 18 months, the 2016 Smith Haut Lafitte has a very deep garnet-purple color, opening with sensuous scents of warm black cherries, blackberry pie, star anise and fragrant lilacs with hints of chocolate box, cigar box and pencil lead plus wafts of truffles and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, rich and seductive, it completely fills the palate with perfumed black berry preserves and superbly plush...

96 points James Suckling: "A very savory and succulent Alion with so much complexity of flavor with berries, chocolate and dried meat. Some cedar, too. Full body. Vertical and very long. Purity of fruit and tannins to this wine." (09/2020) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The highly anticipated 2016 Alión spent 12 months in oak barrels, 80% of them new and built mainly with French oak but with some 5% American oak, and some 10% of the volume matured in 15,000-liter concrete vats. It hits the scale at 15% alcohol and has moderate acidity, showi...
Price: $89.99

97 points Vinous: "The 2017 Flaccianello della Pieve is fabulous. Dark, sensual and enveloping, the 2017 captures the essence of the house style in its textural richness and baritone inflections. Black cherry, plum, spice, new leather, licorice and chocolate infuse the 2017 with tremendous richness. The 2017 spent 18 months in barrique followed by 6 months in cask, the same aging regime as the Vigna del Sorbo, but with a bit more new oak. That approach worked very well, as the Flaccianello stands out for its exceptional textural elegance and finesse. It ...

96 points Decanter: "85% from the lieu-dit of Le Méal, the rest from the lieu-dit of Les Greffieux, all from 60 year old vines yielding 15 hl/ha. Half the crop was destemmed. The nose is dense and compact, quite closed at this time. It's full-bodied but not massive, with a creamy texture in the mouth. It's soft and yielding despite the generous tannic load, a spicy, peppery, herbal style that's really vivid, fresh and concentrated. Well balanced and buzzing with energy, this isn't far off his epic 2015. (MW)" (10/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine...
Price: $159.99

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Château La Conseillante checks in as a blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc brought up in 70% new French oak, with a small amount in amphora. Yields here were a light 32 hectoliters per hectare, and the 2018 is a respectable 13.5% natural alcohol. Winemaker Marielle Cazaux commented that the secret to the vintage was to be a lazy winemaker (i.e. hands off). Her 2018 boasts a saturated purple color as well as incredible purity in its blue and black fruits, spice, liquid flower, and violet-like characteristics. Fu...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Talenti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a balanced and symmetrical wine with bright red cherry on the one hand and pretty spice and balsam herb on the other. The wine pours from the bottle with dark color saturation and ruby highlights. It shows no signs of fading, and that bright color intensity is a common thread in this vintage. There is a good amount of Sangiovese acidity that reinforces the lifted and buoyant style achieved here. It ages in both tonneau and botte for 30 months. Production is 35,000 bottle...
Price: $27.99

96-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes is more classic, with a fresh, vibrant, full-bodied style that carries seriously dense black and blue fruits, graphite, scorched earth, and peppery garrigue like aromas and flavors. Rich, powerful, and with plenty of structure, it’s going to need bottle age but is certainly a tremendous wine in the making. The blend is 45% each of Grenache and Mourvèdre, with 10% Syrah, that was vinified in stainless steel and aged in 55% new barrels and the balance in concrete tanks." (10/20...

2017 Gaja Barbaresco (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "Glorious aromas of flowers, crushed berries, strawberries and dried herbs. Some tea. Full-bodied and layered with a wonderfully curated, polished tannin structure and backbone." (08/2020) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Gaja 2017 Barbaresco is nuanced and delicate with ever-expanding aromatic intensity that amply fills the balloon of your glass. The wine takes a little while to open fully, and it slowly releases forest berry, powdered licorice, toasted aniseed, spearmint, dried lavender and rosemary essence to b...

96 points Decanter: "The progression of this property continues to be evident in the glass with a beautiful classicism, full of life and layers comprising dark spice and touches of black pepper against blueberry and cool fruits, pumped up by black chocolate and liquorice. It’s confident and clearly has a fierce quality to the tannins giving a long life ahead of it. The harvest started on September 17, one week later than Mouton because of its cooler terroir, with the blend completed by 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Carmanère. This is the last vintage with Jea...

96-97 points James Suckling: "The black color indicates a solid and structured red with loads of blackberry and blueberry character. Full-bodied and very tight and tensioned. Savory tannins that are powerful and intense at the finish. Classically structured. Finely toned and formed young red." (04/2019) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a powerful wine with a great future that displays a rich, juicy blackberry flavor and ripe tannins. It is well-structured and generous in fruit, yet well balanced and shows promise for the future. (RV)" (04/2019) ...

93-94 points James Suckling: "Dense and layered red with dark berry, volcanic ash and white pepper. Full-bodied, layered and chewy. Muscular." (04/2018) 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I tasted the 2017 Château Tour Saint Christophe on two sperate occasions and it never failed to impress. A rough blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 14.3% natural alcohol, it has a rocking sense of minerality to go with big, broad, expansive aromas and flavors. Blueberries, black raspberries, flowers, and violets characteristics, medium to full-bodied richness...

95-98 points Vinous: "The 2018 Canon La Gaffelière is extraordinary. Fresh, vibrant and bursting at the seams with energy, the 2018 takes full advantage of all the work Stephan von Neipperg and his team have implemented at their properties. Expressive floral and savory notes add myriad shades of nuance to a dark, sumptuous Saint-Émilion that melds together aromatic intensity and fruit richness. Even with all of its intensity, the 2018 retains an element of translucence that is beguiling. The blend is 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvig...

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An attractively fresh and bright nose speaks of pretty red berry fruit, earth and a whiff of spice. There is both good volume and vibrancy to the delicious flavors that possess very good depth for a Bourgogne, all wrapped in a long if slightly rustic finish. One to consider. Burghound Outstanding Value!" (01/2020) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Bourgogne Côte d'Or Hemisphere Sud (Méo-Camuzet Frère & Soeurs) is a new bottling for Méo's négociant line, derived from three plots in the commune of Pommard.

2018 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Château Duhart-Milon checks in as a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot that hit 14% alcohol. Beautiful black currants, smoked earth, chocolate, and damp earth notes flow to a medium to full-bodied, incredibly elegant Duhart-Milon that has ultra-fine tannins, a weightless texture, terrific balance, and a great finish. Seemingly all about finesse and elegance, it builds nicely on the palate and has a great finish. It should match or exceed the brilliant 2009. 94-96+" (05/2019) 95-96 points James Suckling: "...

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries and stone with some dried-flower notes. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a medium finish. Linear and refined with a very fine line of tannins running through it." (01/2020) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Malescot St. Exupery is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot aged in French oak, 70% new. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it is redolent of warm red and black currants, kirsch and raspberry pie on the nose with floral wafts, tobacco and wild ...

92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Very solid from the start, with dark currant and blackberry compote notes, a graphite grip and a long tobacco- and iron-fueled finish. Very well-defined. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now.

Beautiful cassis, graphite and violet notes all emerge from this beauty, which has medium to...

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another great vintage for Jean-Luc Thunevin’s flagship wine, the 2018 Château Valandraud sports a glass-staining purple color as well as a mammoth-sized personality in its blue and black fruits, liquid violets, and graphite aromas and flavors. Possessing incredible depth and richness, full body, sweet tannins, and a finish that won’t quit, it’s one of the most hedonistic wines in the vintage, yet also possesses purity, balance, and elegance. It’s a thrilling, blockbuster to drink over the coming two decades or more." (05/2019) ...

Back In Stock!
98 points James Suckling: "I love the meatiness to this wine, but also the purity of fruit; think charcuterie, prosciutto, bay leaf, capsicum, blueberries, blackcurrants and crushed stones. You just can’t get over the way this manages to deliver a powerful, muscular package with stunning finesse and poise. The tapestry of intricate texture and detail is wrought in a flashy but sincere and heartwarming style. The balance takes your breath away. Best ever from here. Impossible to resist now, but better from 2025." (11/2019) 98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Su...

96 points Vinous: "It will be hard to keep our hands off of the 2015 Talenti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pian di Conte long enough to watch it fully mature. It opens up with a dark and alluring display of sweet herbs, tobacco and crushed black cherries, as hints of white smoke, sage and cedar add further depths. It’s velvety and pliant, cast over a core of motivating acidity and cooling minerals, creating a push and pull between ripeness and tension. Fine tannins lurk deep beneath it all, yet they never get in the way of the 2015’s long-lasting wild b...

Very intense and fruity." (04/2019) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Pavillon Rouge accounts for 30% of the crop this year. It is composed of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, with 14.5% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple in color, it sings of crushed black and red currants, warm black berries and plum pudd...

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another estate that I suspect has produced a best to date, the 2018 Château Sansonnet comes from a tiny 7-hectare vineyard which was purchased by Marie and Christophe Lefévère early in 2009. The vineyard itself is 35 years old and consists of a thin layer of clay sitting over the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion. The 2018 is a blend of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Cabernet Franc, representing 65% of the total production, that saw malolactic fermentation in barrel and is still resting in 80% new French oak. This i...

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Latour Martillac bursts from the glass with bold cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and plum preserves scents followed up by smoked meats, violets and aniseed hints plus a waft of Provence herbs. Full-bodied, firm and fine-grained in the mouth, the palate is laden with juicy fruit and savory layers, finishing long and fragrant.

94 points Vinous: "Rose petals, tar, licorice and bright red stone fruits lift from the glass in the 2010 Barolo Prapò. This is an especially floral Prapò. Here, too, the structure is implied rather than overly stated. Hints of licorice, tobacco, orange peel, star anise and smoke add complexity on the mid-weight, super-classic finish. This is an utterly exquisite, polished, totally beguiling Barolo from Sergio Germano. The Prapò was aged in 20 and 25 hectoliter casks.

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Landonne offers the classic meaty, mineral, and masculine style that’s the hallmark of this terroir. It’s powerful and full-bodied, with massive minerality as well as notes of bloody meat, ground pepper, and graphite. It’s another serious, concentrated, powerful 2018 that’s going to demand bottle age." (12/2019) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For the 2018 Cote Rotie la Landonne, Pierre Rostaing put together a blend from two barrels. Wow. Toast and mocha notes frame raspberries and blueberr...

98-100 points Decanter: "This is complex, precise and concentrated but tempered with stunning potential. There is so much flavour and juice here with crushed tobacco and liquorice root alongside richly textured raspberry and blueberry fruits - all extremely well balanced and yet reaching down into the depths promising great ageing. A VCC that is full of layers, with the beauty of this vintage making them all relatively discernible even at this early stage because the tannins are not balled together but allow the light in between. An excellent year for Ca...
