Haut Brion Pessac Leognan 2006 1.5L
|   WE: 96   |    WA: 96   |    IWC: 95   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"A severe, austere wine that doesn’t show its richness easily. The tannins are tight and firm and they dominate. Underneath is ripe fruit, the balance with tannins giving a foursquare, solid character. The wine is complex, spice playing with the fruit, some medicinal flavors and a definite..

Chateau Lafite Rothschild Premier Grand Cru Pauillac 2006 750ml
|   WA: 97   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"2006 Lafite Rothschild is a great, great wine made from a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot. When I tasted it from barrel, it reminded me of their successful 1988, but it is dramatically superior to that vintage. Frankly, it may turn out to be as good as the 2005,..

La Mission Haut Brion Pessac Leognan 2006 1.5L
|   WA: 94   |    WS: 95   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"A somewhat under-the-radar La Mission, the 2006 was generally overlooked following the brilliance of the 2005. A young, dense purple-hued wine that is developing beautifully, it exhibits notes of Asian plum sauce, charcoal, barbecue smoke, roasted meats, graphite and background oak. Full-bodied..

Chateau Margaux Margaux 1995 1.5L
|   WA: 95   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"Bottled very late (November, 1997), the 1995 has continued to flesh out, developing into one of the great classics made under the Mentzelopoulos regime. The color is opaque ruby/purple. The nose offers aromas of licorice and sweet smoky new oak intermixed with jammy black fruits, licorice, and..

Haut Brion 2005 Pessac Leognan 1.5l Magnum
|   WA: 98   |    WS: 100   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"Another profound effort from Haut-Brion, the 2005 (a 9,000-case blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc) has bulked up to the point that it is fair to compare it to the great successes of 1989, 1990, 1995, 1996, 1998, and 2000. A dark ruby/purple color is followed..

Cos D'Estournel St. Estephe 2009 3L Double Magnum
|   WA: 100   |    JS: 100   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"One of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted, the monumental 2009 Cos d’Estournel has lived up to its pre-bottling potential. A remarkable effort from winemaking guru Jean-Guillaume Prats and owner Michel Reybier, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot (33%) and a touch..

Cheval Blanc St Emilion 2009 750ml
|   WA: 99   |    WS: 98   |    JS: 99   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"It will be fascinating to follow the evolution of the 2009 Cheval Blanc versus the 2010 as well as the awesome 2005, 2000, 1998 and 1990. This famous estate’s vineyard is situated at the juncture of Pomerol and the sandy, gravelly soils of St.-Emilion, facing the two noble estates of..

Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 1998 Premier Grand Cru 1.5L Magnum
|   WA: 98   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot, this wine represents only 34% of Lafite's total harvest. In a less than perfect Medoc vintage, it has been spectacular since birth, putting on more weight and flesh over the last year. This opaque purple-colored 1998 is close to perfection. The..

Pichon Baron Pauillac Salmanazar 2005 9L
|   WE: 96   |    WA: 94   |    IWC: 94   |    W&S: 96   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"*Cellar Selection* A great, classic Pauillac, with its dark, dense, almost black currant flavors stirred together with immense tannins. The layers of dryness, fresh fruits, acidity and ripeness are all coming together into a magnificent structure. Age for at least 20 years."

Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion Graves 1975 1.5L Magnum
|   WA: 97   |   


Cellar/Tasting Notes
"This is undisputably the wine of the vintage, a year that was clearly over-exposed and over-rated, largely because it was better than the four vintages that preceded it ... The 1975 La Mission-Haut-Brion, which consistently received perfect scores in its first thirty years of life, remains a..
