2015 Maillet, Pomerol

96 points James Suckling: "A full and layered red with blackberry, blueberry and stone character. Some black tea, too. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. A big and muscular wine with classic Pomerol might. " (02/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Maillet has ripe black cherries and raspberry coulis on the nose, nicely defined, not complex but nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, tarry black fruit and quite saline toward the finish. This is an interesting and characterful Maillet that should ...

2009 Le Gay, Pomerol (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "In the same league as the otherworldly 2010, the 2009 Le Gay (90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc) is a totally thrilling Pomerol that’s up with the crème de la crème in this wonderful vintage. Simply loaded with notions of blackcurrants, blackberries, espresso, cedarwood, dried flowers, and incense aromas and flavors, this beauty hits the palate with an opulent, full-bodied, powerful profile yet stays seamless and silky. Possessing perfect balance, beautiful mid-palate depth, sweet, sweet tannins, and no hard edges, it’s just about ...

2016 Vieux-Château-Certan, Pomerol 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Just as good, yet in a different style, the 2016 Vieux Château Certan shows cooler notes of crème de cassis, tobacco leaf, underbrush, graphite, violets, and crushed rocks. Deep, incredibly full-bodied and powerful, yet like the 2015, weightless and sensationally textured, it glides over the palate with no sensation of weight or heaviness. Expansive, deep, beautifully concentrated, and flawlessly constructed, it builds incrementally on the palate and has a finish that lasts for over a minute. It’s another legendary wine from this ...

2010 Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous nose with lots of dark fruit like plum and blueberries. Crushed pepper and chalk with wild strawberries and vanilla. Dense and velvety on the palate with superbly polished tannins and great depth. It's absolutely gorgeous now but needs at least five to six years of bottle age to really shows its great quality.

2009 Clos l'Eglise, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 is one of the sexiest wines in Pomerol in this vintage, offering up notes of melted caramel, sweet mocha, blackberry and black cherry fruit, with hints of loamy soil and unsmoked cigar tobacco as well as a touch of white chocolate and some subtle toasty oak. Round, opulent and unctuously textured, with a full-bodied mouthfeel, fabulous purity, and no hard edges, this sumptuous, fleshy, lavishly rich Pomerol can be drunk now and over the next 25 years.

Chalky, seamless tannins. Super fresh. Try from 2022."

2018 La Conseillante, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Château La Conseillante checks in as a blend of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc brought up in 70% new French oak, with a small amount in amphora. Yields here were a light 32 hectoliters per hectare, and the 2018 is a respectable 13.5% natural alcohol. Winemaker Marielle Cazaux commented that the secret to the vintage was to be a lazy winemaker (i.e. hands off). Her 2018 boasts a saturated purple color as well as incredible purity in its blue and black fruits, spice, liquid flower, and violet-like characteristics. Fu ...

1989 Latour à Pomerol, Pomerol (Lightly Stained/ Stained labels)

92 points John Gilman: "The 1989 vintage of Latour à Pomerol is very good, but I left our vertical wondering if there might be even more precise bottles of this wine out there than the one we enjoyed at our tasting. The wine is notably more precise and pure on both the nose and palate than the 1990 paired up with it, but it could not quite match the mid-palate stuffing of the ’90. The bouquet is a fine and still fairly youthful blend of black cherries, black plums, dark soil tones, bitter chocolate, a bit of tariness, cigar ash and gentle Pomerol herb to ...

Close in quality to La Fleur Petrus and Trotanoy (also in the lineup from Christian Moueix), it has a magical bouquet of blue fruits, tobacco, scorched earth, graphite, and crushed stone that, despite coming from a deep, rich, primordial barrel sample, is still layered and complex.

A blend of 85% Merlot and tiny amounts of Cabernet Franc (12%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (3%), this big Pomerol boasts an opaque, moonless night inky/blue/purple color in addition to a gorgeous perfume of blueberry pie, incense, truffles, black raspberries, licorice and wood smoke.

1970 Trotanoy, Pomerol (1.5L) (nicked label, torn capsule)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1970 Trotanoy can be prone to TCA issues, and I suffered a run of tainted bottles until this pristine example served in Bordeaux. One immediately discerns a deep garnet core, while the first sniff is like hearing the thundering of horses in the distance, presaging a spellbinding bouquet of iodine, macerated dark cherries, a hint of eucalyptus and with time, Japanese green tea (the traditional, “stand your spoon it type”). The palate is full-bodied with a velvety smooth texture, powerful and, I think, with mor ...

In that sense, it might actually outlast the 1990, but what a pair these two wines make.
