  2. 2014 L'if

    1. Licorice, truffle, smoke and tobacco with fully ripened red and black fruits, there is a real purity to the produce and a sensuality to the tannins that was very, very pleasing. This wine was produced with a blend of 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc and reached 14% alcohol. This is a wine to watch. 93-94 Pts

  3. 2009 Château Clarke

    1. Soft, open and with quite a bit of charm in its earthy, cassis and thyme filled personality, the generous finish has a nice supple quality.

  4. 2009 Château Larose-Trintaudon

    1. Better than you might think. From a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, this is already serving up its round, blackberry, cherry and earthy personality, with a soft, fresh, fruit driven finish.

  5. 2009 Château d'Agassac

    1. A nice wine, and good value for the money can be found in this round, soft, easy to like blend of 52% and 48% Merlot. The fruit filled finish is soft and clean.

  7. 2002 Château Cos d'Estournel

    1. This could be the wine of the vintage. There is ample depth, sweetness of fruit, silky tannins and a regal character with notes of dark chocolate, boysenberries and spice in the finish. Decanted 30 minutes, the wine got better and better as it built up steam. Yes, if you want to picky, there is a touch of grit in the finish, but there is such a beautiful wealth of quality to the fruit, I did not care. And due to the weakness of the vintage, the wine sells for a song, compared to the top vintages of COS. This is not a wine to invest in, but it's definitely a wine to drink.

  8. 1986 Château Gruaud Larose

    1. If the aromas of a cigar store, cedar closets and cassis, a mouthful of ripe, fresh blackberries, concentration of flavor and intensity, with regal, elegant, masculine textures and a long, smoky, spice filled, currant finish is a turn on, you came to the right place. Avoiding the extreme tannic character of the vintage, 2 hours of decanting was just right. The wine improved in the glass until we reached the last drop. This is so easy to drink, we finished the bottle long before we were ready.

  9. 2003 Château Angélus

    1. The truffle covered cherry nose draws you in and the soft, silky, smooth textures keep you there. Lacking the power and depth found in the top vintages, the wine is quite nice and can be enjoyed now, or aged for more complexities.

  10. 2003 Rene Rostaing Côte-Rôtie Côte Blonde

    1. This is one sexy, exotic bottle of juice. It is has silky, erotic texture to the fresh cherries that you can only get with Cotie Rotie. The finish is long, the nose is complex and it's ready to go. If you have a bottle and you're feeling hedonistic, pop a cork.

  11. 2014 Pétrus

    1. The color of red gems with the quintessence of black raspberry, tiny French lilies, cocoa bean, pink peppercorn and charcoal, this wine is all about the finesse and sublime purity found in the fruit. The silky, sweet cherries in the end note remained etched in the finish. Produced from 100% Merlot, the wine reached 14.5% with pH 3.6. 95-96 Pts

  12. 2014 Château Haut-Brion Blanc

    1. The mineral-driven grapefruit, lemongrass, flowers, citrus rind, honey and vanilla arouse your curiosity and senses while the layers of citrus peel, lemon custard and honey lure you in for a long, fresh, unforgettable, zippy, expansive, citrus drenched, bright finish. 97 Pts

  15. 2014 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc

    1. Created from a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon, this wine is bright with a pomelo, lemon wax and lime character. Rich, vibrant yet breezy and sweet, this concentrated, mineral driven wine feels lush on the palate and is packed with crisp, citrus notes in the finish. 94-96 Pts

  16. 2014 Enclos Tourmaline

    1. Previously known as Cornaline, this wine is soft, lush and even silky with sweet cherry fruit but beware a touch of dryness in the finish. From 100% Merlot and using 100% micro vinification techniques, the grapes were whole berry fermented and a portion of the stems were saved and included in 50% of the barrels. 87-89 Pts

  19. 2014 Château Le Pin

    1. This wine opens with citrus, floral, dark chocolate, plum and dark cherry notes in the nose, creating a complex set of aromatics. Plush, rich, clean and pure, what the wine lacks in opulence, it makes up for with its concentrated, fresh, long, pure, sweet, velvet-driven character. 94-96 Pts

  20. 2014 Château Branon

    1. A new, fresh style of wine for Branon, now produced by the brother of owner Helene Garcin. Truffle, tobacco and blackberry notes lead to a more finesse driven approach with a tangy, dark chocolate and blackberry finish. Gone is the opulent style to which we have become accustomed, at least in this vintage. This will undoubtedly please some people but it may alienate fans of the estate’s older, more lavish vintages. 90-92 Pts

  24. 2014 Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion

    1. Smoke, black cherry, thyme and the scent of rich soil create a complex perfume. A softly structured, dark red and blackberry-filled wine with the kind of concentration and depth of flavor that yields a delectable, silken black plum and cherry end note. It feels as good as it tastes. Made from blending 54% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine reached 14.22% alcohol with a pH of 3.6 and will be aged in 80% new, French oak barrels. 92-94 Pts

    1. A crowd pleaser. Sweet, lush and forward, this fresh, medium-bodied wine is produced from vines planted in Leognan, which were previously part of the Le Thil vineyard. The wine made its debut in 2011. 87-89 Pts
