Aile d’Argent (Mouton) Pauillac Blanc 2010 - - S/O

Wine:  Pauillac Blanc

Producer:  Aile d’Argent (Mouton)

None

Branaire Ducru St Julien 1983 RP 84 18 R 850.00

Wine:  St Julien

Somewhat soft for Branaire, with a medium-weight texture and relatively lush fruit, the 1983 is a moderately tannic, compact wine that is similar to the 1981 Branaire only less elegant and charming. Anticipated maturity: Now.

Producer:  Branaire Ducru

None

Cantemerle Haut Medoc Magnum 2010 RP 94 3 R 1,250.00

Wine:  Haut Medoc Magnum

The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry and blueberry notes, it exhibits a sort of cool-climate character. Broad, rich and intense on the palate, the wine has plenty of tannins, but they are sweet and well-integrated. Everything is delicately entwined into this beautiful, medium to full-bodied, dense purple wine, which shows stunning character and a prodigious potential for development. This is definitely a major sleeper of the vintage and even better than I thought from barrel.

Producer:  Cantemerle

None

Carruades de Lafite Pauillac 2002 WS 87 10 R 3,000.00

Wine:  Pauillac

A wine with good plum and raspberry aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a short finish. Good but not special. Best after 2008.

Producer:  Carruades de Lafite

None

Cos d'Estournel St Estephe 1996 RP 93 2 R 2,950.00

Wine:  St Estephe

Made from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot, this is a huge, backward wine. The 1996 possesses an opaque purple color, as well as pure aromatics consisting of cassis, grilled herbs, coffee, and toasty new oak. Massive in the mouth, and one of the most structured and concentrated young Cos d'Estournels I have ever tasted, this thick, structured, tannic wine has closed down significantly since bottling. It requires 7-8 years of cellaring, and should last for 30-35 years. It is a fabulous Cos, but patience is required. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2030.

Producer:  Cos d'Estournel

None

Criox Figeac St Emilion Magnum 2010 WA 89 6 R 850.00

Wine:  St Emilion Magnum

The 2010 is a solid effort from this estate, which has a terroir with very promising potential. Opaque ruby/plum/purple, with notes of black cherries, crushed rocks and spring flowers, this medium to full-bodied wine exhibits excellence ripeness, texture and purity. Drink it over the next decade.

Producer:  Criox Figeac

None

Domaine de Chevalier Pessac Leognan Blanc 2008 RP 92 6 R 1,200.00

Wine:  Pessac Leognan Blanc

Composed of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon and exhibiting crisp crushed rock, fig, melon and honeysuckle notes, this beautiful but backward white is capable of lasting another 2-3 decades.

Producer:  Domaine de Chevalier

None

Eglise-Clinet Pomerol 2004 WA 95 6 R 2,250.00

Wine:  Pomerol

Tasted single blind at FINE magazine’s vertical in Dusseldorf. This has a very ripe bouquet with macerated dark cherries, blackcurrant jam, boysenberry and a touch of graphite. Much more masculine and perhaps slightly broody compared to the first, but it opens nicely in the glass. The palate is full-bodied with very intense dark cherry, cassis and blueberry fruit interlaced with citrus lemon. Very well balanced, very fine mineralite showing through on the finish but so backward at the moment. I love the tension here though. Tasted February 2011.

Producer:  Eglise-Clinet

None

Gazin Pomerol 2001 RP 94 2 R 1,500.00

Wine:  Pomerol

A sleeper of the vintage, and possibly the finest Gazin I have ever tasted, the 2001 reveals the best integration of oak at this property in many years. An opaque plum/purple color is accompanied by a glorious bouquet of burning embers, roasted meats, espresso, and sweet plum and blackberry fruit. Richer and deeper than it appeared from barrel, with a tremendous finish, this full-bodied, impressive effort represents a breakthrough for Gazin. There are 6,000 cases of this 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc blend. One of the more backward wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020+.

Producer:  Gazin

None

Gazin Pomerol 2004 RP 90 6 R 1,150.00

Wine:  Pomerol

A big time sleeper of the vintage, the 2004 Gazin exhibits aromas of cedar wood, plum pudding, sweet cherries, figs, and black currants. Medium to full-bodied, pure, and elegant with substantial depth as well as terrific aging potential, it should be at its peak between 2009-2022.

Producer:  Gazin

None

Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 2008 NM 92 7 R 795.00

Wine:  Pauillac

Tasted from a bottle opened at the chateau, since the one in Southwold was not showing so well, the 2008 has a lovely, lifted bouquet of blackberry, blood orange, crushed stone, cedar and tar. It is much more vigorous than the previous bottle. The palate is medium-bodied is very supple on the entry with crisp acidity. Smooth and harmonious, the oak needing time to subsume into the fabric of the wine. The finish is fresh, vibrant, nicely poised with good grip and a fine, supple raspberry and briary.

Producer:  Grand Puy Lacoste

None

Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 2010 RP 95 4 R 1,600.00

Wine:  Pauillac

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.

Producer:  Grand Puy Lacoste

None

Haut Brion Pessac Leognan 2006 RP 96 1 R 5,600.00

Wine:  Pessac Leognan

The 2006 Haut-Brion performed even better from bottle than it did from barrel. Sixty-four percent of the production went into this wine, and while it displays the vintage’s powerful tannins and structure, it possesses superb concentration, and the minerality/scorched earth notes of a great Haut-Brion. Medium to full-bodied, with perhaps not quite the fleshiness of the 2005 or 2000, it is built more along the lines of the 1998 and 1996. It is a brilliant effort displaying sensational purity, texture, and length that should be exceptionally long-lived. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035 .

Producer:  Haut Brion

None

Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 2000 RP 98+ 1 R 16,500.00

Wine:  Pauillac

Since I gave this wine a perfect score, I suppose some could see this as a downgrade. I found everything still there for a perfect rating, but I was just struck by how tight and backward the wine was. A blend of 93.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, the wine still has a dark ruby/purple color and an extraordinarily youthful nose of graphite, black currants, sweet, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and flowers. The wine is rich, medium to full-bodied, but has that ethereal elegance and purity that is always Lafite. I originally predicted that it would first reach maturity in 2011, but I would push that back by 5-7 years now, although it has 50-60 years of life in front of it. Owners of this beauty are probably best advised to forget it for 5 years. Tasted next to a 1996 several days after the 2000 tasting, the 1996, which is a perfect wine, was far closer to full maturity than the 2000.

Lafon Rochet St Estephe Magnum 2009 WA 90 4 R 1,600.00

Wine:  St Estephe Magnum

This wine seems to be one of the few that has not yet recovered from bottling. In a somewhat monolithic, latched-down style, it has plenty of stuffing, lots of structure and an impressive dark ruby/purple color, but it is very hard to coax from the glass. It is a rather classic St.-Estephe made by the Tesseron family, with its distinctive blood orange label, but this wine seems to beg for another 5-7 years of bottle age. The final blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc has some impressive fruit, but the wine just seems slightly more clipped and narrow than I remember it from barrel. Hopefully, time will mellow out this impression. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.

Latour Pauillac 1985 WS 93 1 R 8,750.00

Wine:  Pauillac

Rich and ripe wine. Dark red color with an amber edge. Loads of meat, berry and tobacco character on the nose. Very rich. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and a long, ultraripe fruit finish. Still very fresh and young.--Latour vertical. Best from 2000 through 2015. –JS

Producer:  Latour

None

Latour Pauillac 1998 RP 90 2 R 6,250.00

Wine:  Pauillac

Not a blockbuster, the 1998 possesses a dark garnet/purple color in addition to a complex bouquet of underbrush, cedar, walnuts, and licorice-tinged black currants. Although medium to full-bodied and moderately tannic, it lacks the expansiveness in the mid-palate necessary to be truly great. Moreover, the tannin is slightly aggressive, although that is hardly unusual in such a young Latour. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2030.

Producer:  Latour

None

La Tour a Pomerol Pomerol 2005 RP 90 12 R 1,650.00

Wine:  Pomerol

Made in the elegant style typical of the Moueix offerings, this dark plum/ruby-tinged effort displays an attractive bouquet of kirsch, sandalwood, mocha, and caramelized fruit. It is medium to full-bodied with upfront, soft, plush fruit, and ripe tannin. Give it 2-4 years of bottle age, and consume it over the following 15 or more. As I said last year, it reminds me of a more modern version of their 1970, albeit somewhat less concentrated.

Producer:  La Tour a Pomerol

None

La Tour Haut Brion Pessac Leognan 2000 RP 92 2 R 1,650.00

Wine:  Pessac Leognan

A blend of 52% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc, the sexy, complex, fragrant 2000 La Tour Haut-Brion is the finest wine made under the ownership of the Dillon family and their brilliant administrator, Jean-Bernard Delmas. The vintage yielded fabulous raw materials, the vineyard is older, and more young vine Merlot is making it into the blend, thus fattening up what was once a herbaceous, more Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine. The dense purple-colored 2000 boasts a gorgeously sweet perfume of plums, black currants, tobacco, and a hint of olives. Sweet, ripe, and medium to full-bodied, with terrific richness, purity, and copious tannin, this is the finest La Tour Haut-Brion since the 1982. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.

Producer:  La Tour Haut Brion

None

Le Crock St Estephe Magnum 2009 WA 90 11 R 900.00

Wine:  St Estephe Magnum

A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 7% petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the wine tips the scales at 14+% alcohol. Dense ruby/purple, with notes of blueberry pie interwoven with charcoal, licorice, some chalky crushed rocks and a distinctive floral note, the wine is succulent, unctuously textured, and fleshy, with low acidity and layers of fruit. A sensational effort from this cru bourgeois, it should drink well for 15-20 more years.

Producer:  Le Crock

None

Le Dôme St Emilion 2005 RP 96 1 R 2,850.00

Wine:  St Emilion

A Cheval Blanc look-alike, this cuvee (which includes a high percentage of Cabernet Franc) boasts an ethereal nose of raspberries, menthol, spring flowers, and hints of cedar as well as new oak. Full-bodied, exceptionally fresh, and noble, this is a complex, classic, distinctive wine that should drink well in 3-4 years, and last for two decades. It is the finest Le Dome yet made, but sadly, there are only 1,000 cases.

Producer:  Le Dôme

None

Le Dôme St Emilion 2010 RP 100 4 R 3,500.00

Wine:  St Emilion

A full-bodied wine, but ethereal in its elegance and finesse, the wine has a strikingly provocative bouquet of camphor, blueberry jam, violets, new saddle leather, white chocolate and spice. Extremely full-bodied, but again, not showing any weighty fatigue or any type of aggressiveness, this wine has extraordinary purity and richness as well as a blockbuster finish of close to a minute, yet is so flawless, seamless and compelling, it’s hard to believe the wine is this concentrated and rich. It will be interesting to see how it evolves, but it certainly can be drunk in 3-4 years and, I’m sure, cellared for as long as 25-35 years from now.

Producer:  Le Dôme

None

Leoville Barton St Julien 2010 RP 96 2 R 1,750.00

Wine:  St Julien

A splendid showing, much stronger from bottle than it was from barrel, the Leoville Barton is one of the spectacular wines of the vintage. Inky purple to the rim, its huge tannin gives this wine real potential for 30-50 years of longevity. It is a classic, powerful Bordeaux made with no compromise. A superstar of the vintage, the wine has notes of pen ink and creme de cassis, good acidity, sweet, subtle oak, and massive extraction and concentration. I thought it was one of the most backward wines of the vintage two years ago, and nothing has changed in the ensuing upbringing of the wine in cask except that the wine now seems even richer, denser and fuller than I previously thought. The beautiful purity, symmetry, and huge finish of nearly a minute make this one of the all-time great classics from Leoville Barton. Anticipated maturity: 2028-2065+.

Producer:  Leoville Barton

None

Leoville Las Cases St Julien 2006 RP 95 3 R 2,950.00

Wine:  St Julien

Not surprisingly, Leoville Las Cases has produced another classic, potentially long-lived wine in 2006. Among the St.-Juliens, it, Ducru Beaucaillou, and Leoville Barton possess the potential for the greatest longevity. Interestingly, when I visited this chateau in January, proprietor Jean-Hubert Delon offered me two samples, one where the cork had been pulled immediately prior to tasting, and another that had been decanted four hours earlier. Both were superb, but the wine that had had extended aeration was clearly the finer offering. The opaque purple-hued 2006- only 40% of the crop made it into the final blend- exhibits a personality that mimics the superb 1996. Classic aromas of sweet black raspberries, kirsch, cassis, and subtle toasty oak are followed by a full-bodied, concentrated wine displaying moderately high tannin. This cuvee can often resemble a Pauillac wrapped in the St.-Julien appellation, and the 2006 is no exception. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.5% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, it will require significant cellaring before consumption. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2035+.

Producer:  Leoville Las Cases

None

Leoville Poyferre St Julien 2004 RP 93 3 R 1,350.00

Wine:  St Julien

Along with Leoville Las Cases and a few others, this is among the stars of the appellation. Made in a more floral, supple, Margaux-like style, the deep ruby/purple-hued 2004 Leoville Poyferre exhibits sweet, broad flavors, and plenty of tannin lurking beneath the surface. However, the abundant cherry, black currant, licorice, and smoke notes obscure the tannic clout. This rich, powerful, broad beauty should be drinkable in 2-3 years, and last for two decades.

Producer:  Leoville Poyferre

Le Petit Haut Lafitte Pessac Leognan 2009 JS 93 - S/O

Wine:  Pessac Leognan

Second wine of the Smith Haut Lafitte that received 100/100 from Robert Parker. Younger vines, but made in the same style. Exceptional value. “Gorgeous nose of sous bois, spices, chocolate, and meat follows through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long caressing finish. Elegant with beautiful length. Try in 2017.” 93pts, James Suckling

L'Esprit de Chevalier Pessac Leognan Rouge 2009 WS 90 92 R 340.00

Margaux Margaux 2008 RP 94 1 R 5,400.00

Wine:  Margaux

This is a stunning Chateau Margaux, made in a sexy, up-front, elegant style, with deep creme de cassis fruit intermixed with spring flowers, a solid inner core of richness and depth, but again, very sweet tannins as well as striking minerality and elegance. One of the most seductive Chateau Margauxs given its recent bottling, this blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and the rest tiny quantities of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot should drink beautifully for the next 25-30 years. Remarkably, a mere 36% of the entire production was selected for the 2008 Chateau Margaux.

Pape Clement Pessac Leognan 1996 RP 94 5 R 1,200.00

Wine:  Pessac Leognan

A great wine that has put on considerable weight and continues to show more and more depth and complexity, the dark plum/ruby colored 1996 Pape Clement has a gorgeous nose of barbecue spices intermixed with black currant, plum, coffee, and a hint of white chocolate. The wine is exceptionally rich, fill-bodied, and a fabulous success, particularly in the Pessac-Leognan sector. The tannin is sweet and the wine full-bodied, with tremendous richness and length. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020. Last tasted, 4/02.

Producer:  Pape Clement

None

Petit Bocq St Estephe Magnum 2009 RP 89 6 R 745.00

Wine:  St Estephe Magnum

Another sleeper of the vintage in this magical year, this sexy, fat, luscious St.-Estephe is a blend of 50% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich and succulent, with loads of black fruit intermixed with licorice and incense, this wine is very low in acidity and has very ripe tannins. It should drink nicely for up to a decade.

Producer:  Petit Bocq

None

Pezat Bordeaux Superieur 2011 WA 87-88 360 R 195.00

Wine:  Bordeaux Superieur

From Jonathan Maltus, this is what Bordeaux is doing more and more of. It is wines such as this that will ultimately save the lesser properties from extinction. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc from a humble appellation with a great price tag, this inky/purple-colored 2011 reveals copious amounts of black fruits. Straightforward and powerful, this sleeper of the vintage will offer a serious mouthful of wine over the next 3-4 years.

Producer:  Pezat

None

Pontet Canet Pauillac 2003 RP 95 1 R 1,750.00

Wine:  Pauillac

One cannot say enough about the labors of proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who has personally overseen the dramatic increase in quality of the wines at Pontet-Canet which started in a significant manner with 1994. This is a classic Pauillac-styled wine (meaning oodles of cassis flavors), as one might expect from a vineyard on the plateau of Pauillac, across the street from Mouton-Rothschild.

Producer:  Pontet Canet

None

Pontet Canet Pauillac 2008 RP 96 1 R 1,550.00

Wine:  Pauillac

A candidate for the “wine of the vintage,” Pontet Canet’s 2008 boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious aromas of sweet blueberries, blackberries and black currant fruit intertwined with lead pencil shavings, subtle barbecue smoke and a hint of forest floor. Full-bodied, with fabulous richness, texture and tremendous freshness, this first-growth-like effort is more developed than the uber-powerful 2010. Give it 5-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. Bravo!

Producer:  Pontet Canet

None

Prieur-Lichine Margaux 2000 RP 90 1 R 950.00

Wine:  Margaux

Undeniably the finest Prieure-Lichine in 30-40 years, this textured, rich, medium to full-bodied 2000 boasts a dark ruby/purple color in addition to a knock-out nose of black cherries, cassis, tobacco leaf, cocoa, and toasty oak in the background. The wine is sweet on the attack, full-bodied, and well-textured, with oodles of fruit and glycerin. This is sexy stuff that can be drunk early, but will age gracefully for 15-16 years. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2026. Bravo!

Producer:  Prieur-Lichine

Ronan by Clinet Bordeaux 2010 JS 91 164 R 160.00

Attractive nose with milk chocolate, caramel and blackberries. Some floral notes and vanilla. Full and nicely focused on the palate with dark fruit and fine tannins. Elegant medium-long finish with a touch of licorice. Drink from 2016. - James Suckling Chateau Clinet's youngest sibling by estate's owner, Ronan Laborde. As the vineyards producing the Ronan are located just outside Pomerol, the wine is “only” AC Bordeaux, but undoubtedly delivers the quality we have come to associate with this great appellation, without the price tag. "Ronan By Clinet" is made in the same way, in the same style, at the same place, by the same people as the Grand Vin which scores (95-98) from Parker in this great vintage. 2010 really suited this younger brother, with the deep, rich fruit concentration and terrific freshness making one hell of a glugger!

Teyssier St Emilion 2010 RP 92 50 R 365.00

Wine:  St Emilion

An over-achieving estate for a number of years now, this dense purple wine exhibits oodles of creme de cassis and licorice, hints of subtle barbecue smoke and toast, terrific texture and a long, succulent, fleshy finish. It is not all that dissimilar from the 2009 in terms of its flamboyance and drinkability, although I suspect that analytically the pH is slightly lower and the tannins a bit higher than those of its older sibling. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Vieux Chateau Mazerat St Emilion 2010 RP 95+ 5 R 1,150.00

Wine:  St Emilion

This is one of the tightest, most backward wines in the Jonathan Malthus portfolio. The grapes come from an old-vine parcel near Angelus and Beausejour-Duffau, and the final product is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc. Again displaying plenty of minerality, which seems to be a prevailing theme throughout the 2010s from Malthus, the 2010 Vieux Chateau Mazerat is full-bodied, with an abundance of floral notes as well as black currant and blackberry fruit. Impressively endowed and built like a skyscraper, this full-bodied wine needs a good 7-8 years of cellaring and should keep for 25-30 years. Interestingly, the vines were planted in 1947.
