    One of the stars of the vintage, it will be interesting to see if Poyferre ultimately eclipses Las Cases as the finest of the three Leovilles.
    The 2009 is even better than the 2000, 2003, and 2005.
    Its inky/purple color precedes a wine filled with extraordinary opulence, voluptuous
    texture, and sweet
    tannin.
    It offers both intellectual and hedonistic pleasure with layer upon layer of ripe fruit.
    Yields were 43 hectoliters per hectare, the blend is more than two-thirds
    Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, and the natural alcohol is the
    highest ever measured at this estate, 13.95%.
    The high alcohol is not the least bit noticeable because of the extra
    ordinary concentration and freshness possessed by most 2009s
    a vintage characteristic that will serve these wines for decades to come.
    This is a wine to purchase by the caseload.
    It should drink well for 4-5 years

  2. Alter Ego de Palmer Bordeaux, Margaux 2012

    Alter Ego de Palmer Bordeaux, Margaux 2012

    $85.95

    RP- 93 POINTS

    It has an opulent, glossy bouquet with layers of small dark cherries and plenty of glycerin. The palate is more reserved than the bouquet suggests: saturated tannins, a little chewiness on the entry but suppler towards the finish. It feels very linear in keeping with the style of the vintage, the finish a little sweet than its peers with a dab of licorice on the aftertaste. Learn More
  3. Chateau Angludet Bordeaux, Margaux 2012

    Chateau Angludet Bordeaux, Margaux 2012

    $35.35

    RP- 90 POINTS

    Another truly exceptional wine from the Sichel family of Chateau Palmer, the 2012 d’Angludet has a deep ruby/purple color, a sweet floral, blueberry and blackcurrant-scented nose with a touch of licorice, light tannins, low acidity and a nice, fleshy mouthfeel. This is a sexy, mouth-filling and satisfying wine from both a hedonistic and intellectual vantage point. Drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next decade. Learn More

    Chateau Barde Haut Bordeaux, St. Emilion 2008

    $37.95

    RP- 89 POINTS
    Fruity, soft and fully mature, the 2008 Barde-Haut offers up notes of licorice, roasted herbs, cedar and spice. Medium-bodied with an evolved, endearing character. Learn More
  5. Chateau Barde Haut Bordeaux, St. Emilion 1999

    Chateau Barde Haut Bordeaux, St. Emilion 1999

    $41.95

    RP- 89 Points


    Located at the extreme east end of the village of Saint-Émilion, Château Barde-Haut was purchased by Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard in September 2000. Ms. Garcin-Cathiard promptly invested in the estate, and a renovation led by renowned architect Nadau Lavergne was completed in 2010, creating a facility that is aesthetically modern and as environmentally responsible as possible. Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard also owns Clos L’Église in Pomerol, and Châteaux Haut-Bergey and Branon in Pessac-Léognan. Learn More
  6. Chateau Cantenac Brown Bordeaux, Margaux 2012

    Chateau Cantenac Brown Bordeaux, Margaux 2012

    $54.35

    RP- 88 POINTS

    This offers beguiling aromas of bergamot, roasted sandalwood and black tea, before giving way to a well-endowed core of plum, blackberry and raspberry reduction notes. The structure is remarkably fine-grained, showing seamless integration through the long finish. A really great showing Learn More
  7. Chapelle d'Ausone Bordeaux, St. Emilion 2009

    Chapelle d'Ausone Bordeaux, St. Emilion 2009

    $297.95

    RP- 92 POINTS

    Representing nearly half of the production, this estate's second wine, the 2009 La Chapelle d'Ausone, is an extraordinary effort. Better than many of the grand vins made during the 1970s and 1980s, it is an equal part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc revealing an inky/blue/purple color along with notes of incense, blueberries, raspberries and crushed rocks (which give the wine a distinctive minerality). Medium to full-bodied as well as exceptionally pure, broad and opulent, it should drink well for two decades or more. Drink: 2012 - 2032

  8. La Chenade Bordeaux Lalande de Pomerol 2012

    La Chenade Bordeaux Lalande de Pomerol 2012

    $17.95

    Denis Durantou's 2012 La Chenade is dark, supple and inviting, with plenty of sweet black cherry, plum, licorice, leather and smoke flavors. Ample and layered throughout, the 2012 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. La Chenade is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc taken from parcels planted on gravel in Durantou's Lalande de Pomerol estate. Learn More
  9. Le Clarence de Haut Brion Bordeaux, Pessac Leognan 2010

    Le Clarence de Haut Brion Bordeaux, Pessac Leognan 2010

    $207.35

    RP- 93 POINTS

    Its production involves the same expert handling during the harvest, and above all, the same permanent attention to detail brought to bear for Château Haut-Brion. Learn More
  10. Chateau Clerc Milon Bordeaux, Pauillac 2010

    Chateau Clerc Milon Bordeaux, Pauillac 2010

    $135.95

    RP- 94 POINTS
    Rock-solid, with layers of baker's chocolate and espresso lining the steeped plum and blackberry fruit flavors while intense charcoal fills in on the hefty finish. Backward now, but showing excellent intensity and dark fruit, with a tug of singed iron on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2030 Learn More
  11. Chateau Clinet Bordeaux, Pomerol 2011

    Chateau Clinet Bordeaux, Pomerol 2011

    $90.95

    RP- 95 POINTS
    Chateau Clinet 2011 displays an ink-purple colour.

    Very exuberant and enchanting on the nose, it reveals aromas of wild raspberries and strawberries, together with blackberries and plums in syrup, mingling subtly with essence of vanilla and liquorice.

    Silky and intense on the palate, its soft texture coats the freshly picked wild fruits sprinkled with spices.

  12. Chateau Cos d'Estournel Bordeaux, St. Estephe 2010

    Chateau Cos d'Estournel Bordeaux, St. Estephe 2010

    $395.35

    RP- 97 POINTS

    The 2010 is a more structured, restrained, less flamboyant version of the 2009. A final blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that hit 14.5% natural alcohol, this wine (which represents only 55% of the estate's production) is full-bodied, classic and built along the lines of the 2000 (although that wine was made before Reybier acquired the estate and upgraded quality significantly). This wine exhibits beautifully pure notes of creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur, pen ink, graphite and hints of toast and vanillin. The wine is full and rich, and although aged in 80% new oak, the wood is a subtle background component. This beauty will take longer to round into shape than the dramatic and compelling 2009. Forget it for 5-8 years, and drink it over the following three-plus decades.

  13. Chateau La Dominique Bordeaux, St. Emilion 2010

    Chateau La Dominique Bordeaux, St. Emilion 2010

    $72.95

    RP- 93 POINTS

    The wine displays plenty of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, black currants, licorice, truffles and some espresso notes. Full-bodied, viscous and somewhat reminiscent of many 2009s, given its blast of fruit, glycerin and heady alcohol, this is a beautifully rich St.-Emilion for pleasure seekers. Don’t discount its ageability, as I am sure it has two decades ahead of it. Learn More
  14. Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou Bordeaux, St Julien 2012

    Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou Bordeaux, St Julien 2012

    $137.95

    RP- 90-92 POINTS

    The color is a healthy deep ruby/purple and the wine smells beautiful, exhibiting lots of floral, creme de cassis, licorice and graphite notes. Medium-bodied but slightly deficient in the mid-palate at present, it picks up speed and finishes with serious authority and power. This 2012 should be outstanding, but it is difficult to favorably compare the 2012 to the prodigious wines produced at Ducru in 2009 and 2010. The 2012 will require 4-6 years of cellaring and should drink well for 15-20 years.

  15. Chateau Duhart Milon Rothschild Bordeaux, Pauillac 2008

    Chateau Duhart Milon Rothschild Bordeaux, Pauillac 2008

    $131.95

    RP-POINTS

    A magnificent sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 Duhart Milon is the shrewd consumer's wine to purchase by the case as prices do not yet reflect its qualitative resurgence. Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that came in at 13.09% alcohol, it is a surprisingly intense effort displaying a marvelous texture, plenty of black currant, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning purity as well as density. Enjoy this top-notch 2008 over the next 20-25 years. Learn More
  16. Chateau L'Eglise- Clinet Bordeaux, Pomerol 2007

    Chateau L'Eglise- Clinet Bordeaux, Pomerol 2007

    $169.95

    RP- 94 POINTS
    unquestionably the Pomerol of the vintage, the dense purple-colored 2007 l’Eglise-Clinet offers an astonishing display of rich, licorice and caramel-infused kirsch, black raspberry, and cassis fruit. Rich, full-bodied, and pure, with low acidity and ripe tannin, it is already offering delicious drinking, and should continue to do so for 15-20 years. Having just had the 1997, which is not as strong a wine as this 2007, that wine, from a very mediocre vintage, is still young. Kudos to proprietor Denis Durantou. Learn More
  17. Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste, Pauillac, Bordeaux 2010

    Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste, Pauillac, Bordeaux 2010

    $117.95

    An absolutely magnificent wine from this very popular estate, which sits well off the Route du Vin, just to the southwest of the town of Pauillac, its classic creme de cassis and floral notes are well-displayed. The wine possesses supple tannin, a full body, voluptuous character and a layered, impressively textured mouthfeel. This is a brilliant effort from Grand Puy Lacoste that can be drunk in 4-5 years or cellared for three decades or more. Learn More
  18. Chateau d'Issan Margaux, Bordeaux 2010

    Chateau d'Issan Margaux, Bordeaux 2010

    $102.35

    RP - 95

    A wine of finesse and elegance, expressing the exquisite bouquet particular to the Margaux region, the wines are outstanding for their suppleness, charm and finesse. Every vintage is specific to the terroir. Learn More
  19. Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac, Bordeaux 2012

    Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac, Bordeaux 2012

    $657.95

    RP Points - 91

    Intense, deep crimson color. The nose is dense with aromas of red and black fruit, boxwood and spicy notes. This wine is also dense on the palate with fine intensity and has a very complex finish. Learn More
  20. Chateau Larose Perganson Haut- Medoc, Bordeaux 2010

    Chateau Larose Perganson Haut- Medoc, Bordeaux 2010

    $35.35

    RP - 88 Points

    Forward new oak on the nose with vanilla, powerful black fruits and violets. Rich, flamboyant, concentrated, complex and spicy, with bags of vigour, tight and structured, peppery and long. Shows the character of the Haut-Médoc in the best way. Very, very good.
