2016 Trébiac, Graves
Top Pick!
90 points James Suckling: "An attractive Graves with plenty of ripe red berries and some nice, supple tannins that neatly fit the fairly sleek, medium body. Lively, food-friendly finish. A blend of 70 per cent merlot and 30 per cent cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold." (01/2019)
Price: $14.99

2016 Haut-Vigneau, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
92-93 points James Suckling: "Full and juicy with lots of currant and blackberry character. Hot-stone undertones. Chewy tannins. Has the stuffing to come around nicely." (04/2017) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and rounded in feel, with polished plum and cassis notes lined with subtle savory and iron steaks that extend through the pure, sleek finish. Not big, but fresh and balanced. Drink now through 2027. (JM)" (03/2019) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Haut-Vigneau is medium garnet-purple colored with a nose of warm plums, black cherries a...
Price: $19.99

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "This white delivers tangy fleur de sel, thyme, lemon and white asparagus notes, with good zing for the vintage. (JM, Web-2019)" 91 points Decanter: "This has grassy Sauvignon notes with juice running through it and clear sense of balance and grip. It's a good white wine, full of pleasure, not as soaring as the best vintages here, but still plenty to talk about. 25% new oak was used with integral fermentation. (JA)" (03/2019) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Clos Floridene 2018 Blanc gives tropical scents o...

2010 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "Great aromas of crushed blackberries with flowers and stones that follow through to a full body, with super silky tannins and a long, long finish. It fills your mouth with beautiful fruit and velvety tannins yet shows tension and form. This lasts for minutes on the palate. Structured and superb. Don't touch until 2020." (11/2013) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep plum/purple, Haut-Bailly's 2010 required some coaxing to appreciate its subtle notes of barbecue smoke, lead pencil shavings and creme de cassis as well...

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cooked apples, lemons and stones. Full body, tangy acidity and a grapefruit aftertaste. Lively and fresh." (02/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Carbonnieux Blanc has a detailed and vivacious bouquet offering attractive blackcurrant leaf and citrus aromas, hints of almond and white chocolate just tucked in nicely below the surface. The palate is well balanced with a slice of bitter lemon on the entry. This is a little more piercing in the mouth compared to its peers, as such, it would shine wh...

2009 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan
Back In Stock!
Top Pick!
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/...
Price: $299.99

93 points James Suckling: "Slightly flinty aromas of lemons and dried pears. Really pristine and vibrant. The palate has impressive mango and yellow-peach flavors set in a smooth, fleshy core and a long, deep finish. Drink or hold." (02/2018) 93 points Vinous: "A wine of cut, energy and tension, the 2015 Gazin Rocquencourt Blanc is gorgeous. The green orchard fruit, mint, lime and citrus notes all pulse with considerable vibrancy and tons of Sauvignon Blanc character. Yields were just 40 hectoliters per hectare. The wine was fermented and aged in barre...

96 points James Suckling: "Attractive, fresh-lemon and grassy nuances with wild herbs and slightly flinty elements, too. The palate has such intense and fresh acidity. Fine lemons and limes and a thrillingly dry, long finish. " (01/2020) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: " This wine is crisp, fruity and zesty, with a mineral texture. Its herbal character dominates, bringing in green fruits and a beautiful grassy character. (RV)" (01/2020) 91-94 points Wine Spectator: "Really bracing and pure right now, featuring lively lime zest, kiwifruit and tarragon note...

2010 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I certainly underrated the 2010 Pape Clement from barrel, rating it only 93-95+. (Thank God I put a 'plus' there!) Having tasted it four times in Bordeaux, and rating it perfect three times and 99 the fourth time, this final blend of 51% Merlot, 47.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1.5% Petit Verdot is perfection in a bottle. Tipping the scales at 14.5% natural alcohol, there are 8,000 cases of it. Its sublime elegance, the power, the medium to full-bodied texture, the silky tannins, the subtle notes of smoke, lead pen...

2014 Brown Rouge, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
91-93 points Vinous: "A dark, explosive wine, the 2014 Brown hits the palate with tons of intensity and breadth. 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 blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. (AG)" (04/201...

92-93 points James Suckling: "Lots of walnut and berry character. Medium-to full-bodied, round and silky with a lovely chocolate undertone. Very polished and juicy. So fine and racy." (04/2017) 93 points Decanter: "So elegant, right from the first nose. The fourth vintage under Haut-Bailly ownership (because they declassified the 2013), this has appealing rich caramel and coffee bean edges and is beautifully elegant. It has soft, elongated tannins, and concentrated violet and fern notes, that seem to float through the palate. This property is really st...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is an extraordinary performance once again from the Cathiard family, the proprietors of Smith-Haut-Lafitte. They think the 2010 is even better than the 2009. (I disagree, but only slightly.) This wine has laser-like definition in its an remarkable nose of a subtle charcoal fire interwoven with spring flowers, creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur and spicy wood. Full-bodied, stunningly concentrated, long, rich and moderately tannic, this wine is set for an exceptionally long life of 30-40 years but can be drunk...

James Suckling: "A fruity and refined wine with blackberry and cherry character. Medium body and silky tannins." (04/2017) K&L Notes: Aromas of plums and berries with hints of chocolate and stones. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a savory finish.
Price: $14.99

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the wines of the vintage, the 2000 has barely budged in its evolution since it was bottled and released in 2002. After ten years in bottle, it still reveals a dense opaque purple color along with a potentially sensational bouquet of blueberries, black currants, graphite, asphalt and background oak. Extremely powerful, full-bodied and superbly concentrated with good acidity and high but round tannins, this massive La Mission-Haut-Brion should take its place among this estate’s most hallowed vintages when i...

2016 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan
Top Pick!
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." (02/2019) 100 points Robert Park...

This was the 2nd vintage from Sean Allison-released to us again in 2019. I’m excited to introduce to you our latest DI – Direct import from Bordeaux; Ch. L’Avocat 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 this year. 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 lat...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red wine flight was a colossal showing for the 2009s, with perfect wines from Cos d'Estournel, La Mission Haut-Brion, Smith Haut Lafitte, Pape Clément and Haut-Brion. These amazing wines are not only showing their individual, singular terroir characteristics at age six, but the luxurious, extravagant richness and body of this vintage...One expects the Mission Haut-Brion, Haut-Brion and Pape Clément to hit the highest points in a vintage like this - and they did.

2016 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan
New!
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "I love the deep and complex nose, in which the cassis and mint of Cabernet Sauvignon are beautifully married to the more generous blackberry of ripe Merlot and the vanilla and toasty notes from the oak are marvelously integrated. On the palate it creeps up on you slowly; the first impression is ripe yet delicate, then the fine-grained tannins charge through and light up the sky. Very long finish. Drink or hold." (02/2019) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Bonnie family’s estate has produced a richly structured wine, full of the...

100 points James Suckling: "This is crazy. The nose is so unique with the iodine, stones and currant aromas with wet earth and mushroom. Aromas like this don't usually come out until 10 years or so in the bottle. Classic nose for this estate. Full-bodied, with an amazing palate of firm yet polished tannins and a solid palate. So dense and gorgeous. It is really stunning." (02/2013) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A strong candidate for a perfect score in about 15 years, the 2010 La Mission Haut-Brion could well turn out to be a modern-day ver...

Decanter: "Deep purple with violet edging, delivering freshness and attractive rich cherry fruits. Good value. (JA)" (04/2017) James Suckling: "Full blackberries with hints of chocolate and something leafy. Nice, juicy palate with moderate tannins and a lively finish. Drink or hold." (01/2019) Vinous: "The 2016 Crabitey is a plump, forward Graves with lovely dark fruit, spice, leather and tobacco character. Drink through 2024. (AG)" (01/2019)
Price: $15.99

93-94 points James Suckling: "This is a structured and layered young red with hot-stone, tar and berry character. Lots of fruit, yet reserved and toned with firm tannins and a lovely texture. " (04/2019) 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Château Lespault-Martillac is terrific, and despite having gravellier, draining soils, the Graves region turned out plenty of beautiful wines in the vintage. This deeply colored effort offers medium to full-bodied richness and notable elegance to go with classic aromas of crème de cassis, crushed rock, earthy forest ...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2012 Haut Bailly is brilliant and does nothing to damper my belief that this vintage is underrated in the market. Offering up a classic bouquet of tobacco leaf, cigar wrapper, blackcurrants, lead pencil, and graphite, this beauty is full-bodied, has terrific concentration, integrated acidity and plenty of fine tannins. While it starts out up front and seemingly ready to go, it tightens up with time in the glass and is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and drink nicely for two decades. It’s a sensational wine you wo...

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 ...

2017 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a generous, opulent wine with ripe blackberry and hints of spice notes sustained by rich tannins. Juicy and packed with tannins, this will be ready to drink young, but will also age over many years. (RV)" (04/2018) 97 points James Suckling: "A tight, solid red with crushed-berry, sandalwood, stone and cement flavors. It’s full-bodied, yet very tight and compact with excellent depth and intensity. Closed and austere, but there’s both energy and levity to it at the same time."

91 points Wine Spectator: "Very ripe fruit on the nose, with hints of tobacco and cedar. Full-bodied, with big, chewy tannins, yet soft and luscious. Best after 2007. (JS)" (03/2003) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple-colored 2000's rich, complex perfume displays aromas of cedar, black cherry liqueur, melted licorice, scorched earth, tobacco, and new oak. The wine is rich, firm, tannic, concentrated, and medium to full-bodied with admirable sweetness of fruit. It is a beautiful effort that should be drinkable between 2007-20...

97 points James Suckling: "Wonderful depth of fruit here with blackberries, wet earth, mushrooms, dark chocolate and violets. Full-bodied, tight and poised with polished and compressed tannins. Consistent finish. Linear and focused. " (01/2020) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Bold tannins and powerful fruits give this perfumed wine concentration and a dense texture. It is rich in pure black fruit-flavors, with bright acidity that will allow for aging. The power and the structure of this wine are impressive, while not losing the crisp fruitiness of the v...

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Spice and wood flavors are dominant in this wine at this stage although the fragrant fruit also shines through. It has fine juicy blackberry notes and softly integrated tannins. In the end, it is all about the great fruitiness. (RV)" (04/2018) 91 points Decanter: "Charming and elegant, the rich blueberry fruit has good density, even if its not particularly generous. The tannins close the fruit down but have life and definition in them, and this will soften and open within four to five years. There was 30% f...

2016 de Chantegrive Rouge, Graves
Top Pick!
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the leading estates in the Graves has produced an elegant, balanced wine. Wood aging has added to the fruit tannins to give plenty of structure to go with the black-currant fruits. This is a wine to age, drink from 2023. (RV)" (06/2019) 90 points James Suckling: "Some chocolate and leafy, cabernet character on the nose, but the fruit seems ripe enough on the generous palate. Slightly chewy finish. Just a year longer in the bottle ought to help. A blend of 50 per cent Merlot and 50 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon." (02/201...

(RV)" (04/2019) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "This has a big ball of warm plum and boysenberry compote notes at the core, framed with a liberal dose of singed cedar and apple wood. Hasn't integrated fully yet, but there's good length and energy here, with a positive vibe.

2017 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "The tannins are the secret of this bold wine granting longevity and great structure. At the same time, the ripe blackberry fruits are rich yet bright and fresh. The wine will take time to mature. (RV)" (04/2018) 98 points James Suckling: "This is extremely aromatic and perfumed with crushed-berry, flower, currant and orange-peel character. Full-bodied, very tight and focused with fabulous depth and density that brings you down through the wine. Deep and serious. Very classic wine that reminds me of top Haut-Brions of the ...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest wine ever made by proprietors Daniel and Florence Cathiard, the 2009 Smith-Haut-Lafitte exhibits an opaque blue/purple color in addition to a glorious nose of acacia flowers, licorice, charcoal, blueberries, black raspberries, lead pencil shavings and incense. This massive, extraordinarily rich, unctuously textured wine may be the most concentrated effort produced to date, although the 2000, 2005 and 2010 are nearly as prodigious. A gorgeous expression of Pessac-Leognan with sweet tannin, emerging cha...

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Checking in as 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot brought up in 60% new French oak, the 2018 Château Smith Haut Lafitte reveals a saturated purple color as well as rock star notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, graphite, crushed rocks, and spice. Deep, profoundly concentrated, beautifully seamless and textured on the palate, it reminds me of the 2009 with its opulent, powerful style. It's a brilliant wine from this terrific estate and up with the top wines in the vintage. Hats off to direc...

91 points Decanter: "The Leveque family has had a tough few years with low yields. Winemaker Aude Dupuy has produced a well balanced 2018. It's a little subdued right now, although there's clearly lots of dark brambly fruit and good structure. It feels poised and well made. I tasted this a few times and it always impressed. 50% new oak. HVE3 certified. Hubert de Bouard consults. (JA)" (03/2019) 9-91 points James Suckling: "A straightforward young red with dark-berry, chocolate and walnut character. Medium body, firm tannins and a savory finish. " (04/2...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "As so often, La Mission is rich, voluptuous, opulent and always a wine that seduces when it is young. But watch for those firm tannins, pure black plum and chocolate flavors, and wait for the dense texture to open up over the next 10 years and more. (RV)" (06/2007) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of fruit and spices, with black pepper and cumin and undertones of forest floor. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit, a silky texture and a medium-to-long finish. Best after 2011. (JS)" (03/2007) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's I...

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Tasted no less than four times, the 2017 Domaine de Chevalier is going to be up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. Based on 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot aging in 35% new French oak, its deep purple color is followed by an incredibly classic bouquet of crème de cassis, crushed rock, pipe tobacco, smoked earth, and leafy herbs. Similar in style to the 2008, yet with more generosity and charm, it’s medium to full-bodied, silky, and elegant, with ripe tannin. Give it a few years and enjoy over the...

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Larrivet Haut-Brion offers up notes of baked plums, stewed cherries and warm cassis with hints of wilted roses, bouquet garni and raisin cake. Medium-bodied with a good amount of spicy baked berries flavors, the palate has a clever structure of soft tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with an herbal lift.

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 2010 Haut-Brion, it does not have the power of Latour’s 2010 or the intense lead pencil shavings and chocolaty component of Lafite-Rothschild, but it is extraordinary, perfect wine. It has a slightly lower pH than the 2009 (3.7 versus the 2009's 3.8), and even higher alcohol than the 2009 (14.6%). The wine is ethereal. From its dense purple color to its incredibly subtle but striking aromatics that build incrementally, offering up a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas ranging from charcoal and camphor t...

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is dense and very structured with phenolic tension and depth. Full-bodied, lightly phenolic with sliced apples, cooked pears and lemons. Lively and intense. Solid as a rock. This is one to watch." (04/2019) 95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the whites of the vintage is the 2018 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, which is both powerful and fresh in the vintage. Crushed citrus, tart melon, lemon curd, and crushed rock-like minerality all give way to a pure, full-bodied dry white that has integrated acidity and a great, great f...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is already showing exceptionally well, even though it is not close to its plateau of maturity. The deep ruby/purple color is followed by scents of roasted herbs intermixed with sweet black currant fruit, truffles, vanillin, and minerals. Lush, with ripe cassis fruit on the attack, outstanding balance, medium body, and layers of intensity, this is an elegant, graceful, smoothly textured, beautifully made Bordeaux.
