2016 Sansonnet, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Back In Stock!
96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "An estate that has been firing on all cylinders recently, the Merlot-dominated 2016 Château Sansonnet sports a saturated ruby color as well as a beautiful bouquet of macerated black cherries, blackcurrants, smoked earth, spice, and tobacco. This ripe, sexy, full-bodied beauty has terrific overall balance, a layered texture, no hard edges, and a beautiful finish. It's a gem in the vintage and is well worth a case purchase. The blend is 90% Merlot and 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, all brought up in 80% new French...

94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Barde-Haut has turned out beautifully. Dark cherry, mocha, spice, leather and tobacco flesh out in the glass. Effortless, supple and nicely layered, the 2014 hits all the right notes. The midweight style of the year comes through very nicely in this classy, polished Saint-Émilion. Proprietor Hélène Garcin and consulting winemaker Alain Raynaud captured all of the vintage's potential. (AG)" (02/2017) 92-93 points James Suckling: "This is very dense and intense with lots of extracted fruit that gives a licorice and mineral cha...

2016 Tour St-Christophe, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "This has a rich and ripe dark-fruit nose with a wealth of stony attraction and a lighter, floral edge. The palate has a very rich core of deeply ripe, fleshy fruit, framed in cedary oak. Really impressive clarity and web-like tannins. Superb finish. Try from 2023." (02/2019) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Tour Saint-Christophe is made up of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It was aged in 40% new, 40% one-year-old and 20% two-year-old oak for 18 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of ro...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Based on an 80/20 split of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Barde-Haut is a tour de force and a spectacular wine any way you look at it. Crème de cassis, dried flowers, earth, and loads of limestone-like minerality all flow to a full-bodied, opulent wine that has sweet tannins and a great mid-palate. Drink this uber-sexy beauty any time over the coming 15+ years. " (10/2018) 95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, blueberries, wet earth and black tea. Full-bodied, dense and layered with medium, chewy tannins and a ...

2016 Truquet, St-Émilion
Top Pick!
Wine Enthusiast: "From vines on the plateau to the west of the village of Saint-Émilion, this is a light, fruity wine. Its acidity and tannic structure lend a crisp texture to its black currant fruit. (RV)" (12/2017)
Price: $14.99

James Suckling: "This is a little over extracted but could turn out to be outstanding in the end due to the beautiful ripe fruit and intensity. " (04/2016) Vinous: "The 2015 Petit Faurie de Soutard is laced with the essence of blackberry jam, dark chocolate, espresso, licorice and new oak. Dark, sumptuous and inviting, the 2015 offers fine balance in an intense, full-throttle style that will appeal most to readers who like rich, extravagant wines. (AG)" (04/2016)
Price: $19.99

2016 Puy-Blanquet, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
92 points James Suckling: "Focused fruit, such as raspberries and blackberries with chalk and flowers. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and a long and defined finish. Quite muscular. Try after 2021." (01/2019) 92 points Vinous: "The 2016 Puy-Blanquet is a gorgeous, classically built Saint-Émilion that emphasizes freshness and purity. Deceptively medium in body, the 2016 is supple, deep and incredibly inviting. Sweet tobacco, cedar, leather and licorice add lovely aromatic top notes. Pliant and inviting, this incredibly delicious yet understated Saint-...

96-97 points James Suckling: "Blueberry and blackberry character with hints of white pepper and chalk. Salty, too. Full-bodied, tight and polished with fantastic texture and length. Very closed and tight with gorgeous tannin quality." (04/2019) 93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "This tiny, picturesque vineyard on the east side of Saint-Émilion has turned out another brilliant wine with their 2018 Château Tour Saint Christophe. The vineyard covers 6.5 hectares of terraced slopes sitting just across from Château Barde-Haut and consists of old vine Merlot and Cab...

Wine Spectator: "Medium-garnet in color, with a ruby center. Pretty floral, berry and dried cherry aromas. Medium-bodied, with tobacco and fruit flavors. (JS)" (11/1998) K&L Notes: A five star vintage, and "A great year for both Pomerol and St.Emilion," according to Decanter. Critics have noted that the 1982 Angélus, however, represents the château's earlier style, before changes in production were made in the mid-1980s.
Price: $499.99

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Notes of blackcurrants, plums, chocolate, and lead pencil emerge from the ripe, sexy styled 2015 Château Grand Mayne. This full-bodied, opulent, beautifully concentrated 2015 hits the palate with loads of fruit and texture, yet stays balanced, has terrific purity of fruit, and ripe tannin. I was only able to taste this one time, but wow, what a wine. It should be at its best from 2020-2035." (11/2017) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "The 2015 Grand Mayne has a candied bouquet with high-toned red cherry, crè...

94 points John Gilman: "Eric d’Aramon commented on the 2000 Figeac that if he had it to do all over again, he might have waited just a few days longer before starting to pick at the estate. This vintage shows a bit of youthful bell pepper and fresh herb tones of old school claret, and to my palate, I see nothing amiss with the youthful aromatic and flavor profiles of this very deep, pure and soil-driven Figeac. The complex and utterly classic nose jumps from the glass in a superb mélange of cherries, raw cocoa, fresh herb tones, just a touch of youthful ...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 La Bienfaisance is a rich, concentrated wine with loads of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit along with some earthiness and subtle background oak. It is medium to full-bodied, ripe, and extremely well-made in a progressive, modern St.-Emilion style. Drink now through 2025. (RP)" (06/2015)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 97% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc representing just 41% of the total production, the 2018 Château Laroque is still resting in barrels and oak tanks. Its deep purple color is followed by a classy bouquet of ripe black cherries, cassis, graphite, licorice, and crushed rocks. Deep, medium to full-bodied, with beautiful mid-palate and ripe, silky tannins, it's a beautiful success for the estate, which appears to be firing on all cylinders today thanks to the talented team of David Suire and Nicolas Thienpont!" (04/2019) ...

97 points Wine Spectator: "This takes the fruit of 2009 but harnesses it even more quickly, with rivets of graphite and apple wood studding the core of plum sauce, blackberry reduction and raspberry pâte de fruit. Ample singed apple wood lines the finish, melded wonderfully with the fruit, while the minerality lingers on and on in the background, waiting in reserve. Around it all, a beguiling violet note dances. The combination of power and purity is a wonderful thing.—Non-blind Pavie Macquin vertical Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM, Web Only-2015)" 95...

98-99 points James Suckling: "This is a dense and focused Canon with beautiful blackberry, almond and hazelnut character. Vivid and lifted. It’s compact and complete with tannins that melt into the center palate and then build at the end. Full-bodied yet reserved and driven. A superb and focused wine. Classy all the way. New 1955?" (04/2019) 97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Canon is blended of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, with a pH of 3.69 and 14% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, it comes sashaying out of the glass with g...

2005 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (1.5L)
Back In Stock!
98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, from a cool limestone terroir on the plateau, the 2005 Château Pavie Macquin is extraordinary juice, and the finest vintage of this cuvee I’ve ever tasted. Sporting a saturated purple color as well as an off the hook bouquet of crème de cassis, blackberries, smoked earth, chocolate, and Asian spices, with a sensational sense of minerality developing with time in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, massively concentrated, and multi-dimensional, it’s just now at the ear...

2010 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky, bluish/black/purple, with notes of spring flowers, licorice, camphor, graphite, and a boatload of blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry fruit, this is a powerful, full-bodied Troplong Mondot. All the building components of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol are judiciously and impressively integrated. It is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc made by Christine Valette and her husband Xavier Pariente with the consultancy help of Michel Rolland. I-m not sure...

96 points Vinous: "Readers will find a rich, flamboyant wine in the 2016 Barde-Haut. There is not a ton of subtlety here, but I am not sure that matters all that much given how immensely pleasing the 2016 is. Crushed rocks, graphite, lavender, blackberry, plum, and violet infuse a Saint-Émilion that offers tremendous textural richness as well as vibrancy. Most importantly of all, the 2016 is flat-out delicious. This is a decidedly opulent, dark Saint-Émilion with all of the elements impeccably balanced. I loved it. (AG)" (01/2019) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck...

1983 Canon, St-Emilion
Back In Stock!
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine's dark garnet/ruby color reveals some rust/amber at the edge. The nose is forthcoming, with scents of leather, earth, spice, sweet plums and fruitcake. In the mouth, the wine possesses good richness, heady, alcoholic clout, low acidity, and rustic tannin in the finish. (RP)" (01/1998)
Price: $199.99

100 points Decanter: "From the very first sip you see why certain wines just have a hold on the imagination. This has the full intensity of St-Émilion with none of the need to shout about it or push its point home. It's just effortlessly intense and confident, with flavours of liquorice, pencil shavings, damson and cassis. It has wonderful freshness and balance, and full grip from firm tannins. Complex and persistent, this is an absolute joy to taste. 100% new oak. Drinking Window 2023 - 2042. (JA)" (12/2017) 100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A hold onto your ...

96-97 points James Suckling: "Blueberry and blackberry character with hints of white pepper and chalk. Salty, too. Full-bodied, tight and polished with fantastic texture and length. Very closed and tight with gorgeous tannin quality." (04/2019) 93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "This tiny, picturesque vineyard on the east side of Saint-Émilion has turned out another brilliant wine with their 2018 Château Tour Saint Christophe. The vineyard covers 6.5 hectares of terraced slopes sitting just across from Château Barde-Haut and consists of old vine Merlot and Cab...

99 points Decanter: "This is so opulent it almost stops you in your tracks. 2010 is a big vintage anyway, and when layered up with the seductive power of prime Angélus, it's a package that absolutely delivers. The natural sweetness of the damson fruit is tempered by cherry pits, tar, dark chocolate, charcoal, liquorice and spice, showing incredible persistency. The tannins are layered and hefty, yet cashmere-like and balanced by the acidity, helped again by that shot across the bows that Cabernet Franc gives. This is the kind of year where you understand...

100 points James Suckling: "Incredible nose of currants and blueberries. Flowers too. Licorice. Such purity on the nose of Cabernet Franc. Full body, incredible structure, with fabulous tannins and a long, long finish. Built out of stone. The perfect Ausone." (02/2012) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A masterpiece in the making, proprietor Alain Vauthier’s 2009 Ausone boasts a dense purple color along with notes of powdered chalk, crushed rocks and wild blue, red and black fruits. Extravagantly rich with great minerality, precision and freshn...

2005 Pavie, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Even more flamboyant and sexy than the 2000, the 2005 Pavie has everything you could ever want from a wine. Deep, inky purple-colored, an awesome perfume of cassis, blackberries, toasty oak, graphite, and incredible minerality, full body, sweet tannin, and a blockbuster finish all make for an extraordinary Saint-Emilion. It’s still a baby but offers incredible pleasure today. It’s going to last for another 3-4 decades." (08/2018) 100 points James Suckling: "This is monumental. Just a baby with a fresh and intense mouthfeel and ...

95-96 points James Suckling: "This is a very powerful and structured Haut-Brisson, showing incredible depth and richness. Full-bodied and layered with incredible depth and purity. Layers of fruit and tannin. Best ever." (04/2019) 92-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The deep, saturated purple/plum-colored 2018 Château Haut Brisson checks in as a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from a 22-hectare vineyard of fine gravelly and quartz-rich soils sitting on top of deep clay. Still aging in 35% new French oak, this rich, medium to full-bodied Saint-Émilion ...

2015 La Gaffelière, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
97 points Vinous: "The 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine of total finesse. Much less obvious and overt than most Saint-Émilions in this vintage, La Gaffelière makes its case on harmony and grace above all else. Bright, lifted Cabernet Franc-infused aromatics give the 2015 striking freshness and aromatic presence. The flavors are bright and nuanced to the core, with plenty of red cherry, espresso and floral notes. But back to the basics. In 2015 La Gaffelière is a wine that stands out because of its impeccable balance and sense of proportion. I loved it. (AG)"...

96 points Wine Spectator: "This has always been a gorgeous, sexy wine. Dark ruby-colored, with a slight garnet rim. Full-bodied, with loads of sweet fruit flavors and a lovely, long aftertaste of fresh fruit, floral, earth character. (JS)" (11/1998) 95 points John Gilman: "Back when I wrote the first piece on Château Magdelaine, I included a note on the very first bottle of the 1982 which I had crossed paths with from the estate. To put this in context, the 1982 vintage was the first great vintage of Bordeaux to come along in my career in the wine tr...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Pavie Decesse is medium to deep garnet-brick in color and explodes with fabulous plum pudding, prunes, blackberry preserves and blueberry pie notes with hints of smoked meats, garrigue, dusty soil, cast iron pan and star anise with dried roses and cinnamon stick wafts. Full-bodied, concentrated and packed with rich exotic spice and black fruit preserves layers, it has loads of mineral and meat sparks and a very, very long, layered finish. Incredible! For cellaring potential, I give it 20+ more years. (LP...

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 97% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc representing just 41% of the total production, the 2018 Château Laroque is still resting in barrels and oak tanks.

Deep, medium to full-bodied, with beautiful mid-palate and ripe, silky tannins, it's a beautiful success for the estate, which appears to be firing on all cylinders today thanks to the talented team of David Suire and Nicolas Thienpont!" (04/2019) ...

100 points James Suckling: "Seductive. The nose draws you in deep: It’s like staring into a well of pristine dark cherries, dark plums, blackberries and mulberries. All the oak is perfectly subsumed. The palate’s flawless with immense depth and power and it’s so balanced as to appear to float. Immaculate fresh dark-berry and plum flavors. Silky and deep, ribbon-like finish. Perfect. Best from 2022." (02/2018) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Canon was a benchmark wine that seemed to revitalize this historic estate. I was crossing my ...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "After tasting it three times from bottle, I am convinced this prodigious wine is one of the greatest young Bordeaux I have ever tasted. Inky blue/purple with notes of camphor, forest floor, blackberry, cassis, sweet cherries, licorice, the wine has stunning aromatics, unctuous texture and an almost inky concentration, but without any hard edges. With considerable tannin and just enough acidity to provide definition, this wine transcends even its premier grand cru classe terroir. It is certainly the finest Clos F...

2010 Canon, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
New!
96 points James Suckling: "Wonderful nose with strawberries, cherry blossom, and vanilla. The red opens up with blueberries, milk chocolate and sweet licorice. Full and juicy on palate with pure dark fruit and velvety tannins. So nicely layered texture and long in the finish with red fruit and crushed chalk. The texture is superb. Drink from 2018. " (02/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Canon 2010 has a reticent nose despite rigorous coaxing. Yet there is certainly good definition and plenty of sharp red brambly fruits within. The p...

98-99 points James Suckling: "This is a dense and focused Canon with beautiful blackberry, almond and hazelnut character. Vivid and lifted. It’s compact and complete with tannins that melt into the center palate and then build at the end. Full-bodied yet reserved and driven. A superb and focused wine. Classy all the way. New 1955?" (04/2019) 97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Canon is blended of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, with a pH of 3.69 and 14% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, it comes sashaying out of the glass with g...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is another offering from the exotic Le Pin-school of St.-Emilions that are made from extremely ripe fruit, aged in 100% new oak (the malolactic fermentation is also done in new oak), and bottled without filtration. The 1995 La Couspaude exhibits a ripe, jammy kirsch, black currant, and licorice-scented nose with plenty of smoky, pain grille notes. Full-bodied, with low acidity, and a flamboyant personality, this wine will unquestionably cause heads to turn. Traditionalists may argue that it is too obvious an...

99 points James Suckling: "Incredibly perfumed aromas of roses and violets, as well as blue fruit and lavender. Full-bodied and powerful, yet so full of finesse and vibrance. The height of elegance! Such depth of chalk and dark berries. It goes on for minutes. Drink after 2025." (02/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Belair Monange comes strutting out of the glass like a total rock star with gregarious red cherries, blackberries and warm plums scents...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "After tasting it three times from bottle, I am convinced this prodigious wine is one of the greatest young Bordeaux I have ever tasted.

2016 Fleur Cardinale, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
95 points Decanter: "Plump, well-ripened but mellow fruit from the first nose. Touches of violet florality also as the Cabernet Franc takes the lead, and again the minerality is emphasised with a slate texture on the finish which does a brilliant job of counterbalancing the generous ripeness of the fruit. Crushed mint, liquorice, bitter chocolate on the finish also, this is gourmet and easy to love. Still has an austerity at this point – it needs another few years to really soften. These are lovely wines full of confidence and pleasure with their own dis...

91-92 points James Suckling: "A juicy and pretty wine with blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors and firm and silky tannins. Linear and long. Solid effort this year." (04/2017)

96 points Vinous: "Readers will find a rich, flamboyant wine in the 2016 Barde-Haut. There is not a ton of subtlety here, but I am not sure that matters all that much given how immensely pleasing the 2016 is.

2017 Figeac, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
94-97 points Vinous: "The 2017 Figeac is magnificent. Beautifully layered and exquisite in the glass, the 2017 possesses remarkable balance and harmony from the very first taste. An utterly beguiling, captivating wine, the 2017 simply has it all. Bright, red-toned fruit, mint, spice, lavender and rose petal overtones flesh out in the glass, but above all else, Figeac is a wine of total harmony. The Grand Vin includes 10% second generation fruit. Even so, production is down around 50%. (AG)" (05/2018) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Juicy fruit and delic...

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: " Red-ruby with a hint of amber at the edge. Red cherry, redcurrant, minerals, chocolate and a medicinal hint of cough syrup on the nose. Minerally, fresh and juicy, with penetrating acids framing the rich fruit. Finishes very long, with dusty tannins spreading over the entire palate. Turned slightly dry as it opened in the glass. Drink 2006 to 2030. " (08/2002) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Chewy, monolithic wine. Aromas of dried herbs and berries. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a tar, tobacco ...

96 points Vinous: "The sophomore 2009 Belair-Monange has been variable from bottle to bottle so I was taken aback at the impressive performance here. It has a very opulent bouquet with plush red fruit, patisserie, candied orange peel, fig and dates. This is very open and expressive, very gourmand in style and though atypical, it is very seductive. The palate is almost viscous on the entry with plush red fruit, a touch of black pepper and oregano, slightly medicinal in style but very persistent. Blind, I thought it might be Tertre-Rôteboeuf but it turned ...


98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine boasts 14.6% natural alcohol and is a final blend of roughly three-fourths Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, cropped at a ridiculously low 19 hectoliters per hectare. Notes of licorice, garrigue, incense, smoked meats, espresso, creme de cassis and blackberry liqueur jump from the glass of this unbelievably intense wine. Remarkably full, with compelling freshness and precision, this is a fabulous effort in 2010. It will probably close down over the next several years, and not re-emerge for at least a d...

2005 Tertre Rôteboeuf, St-Emilion (1.5L)
New!
99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Le Tertre Roteboeuf is just about off the charts and shows how good this vintage is for Bordeaux. Still inky ruby/purple-colored with a huge nose of blackcurrants, chocolate, black cherries, and hints of scorched earth, it hits the palate with a huge, full-bodied, concentrated, yet impeccably balanced profile. This is an incredible wine that’s just now at the early stages of maturity and will keep for another two decades or more." (12/2017) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational effort, Tertre Roteboeuf...

Price: $179.99

90 points Wine Spectator: "Very perfumed, with crushed blackberry and vanilla character. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and tangy fruit. Balanced and refined, with a racy finish. Not quite as exciting as from barrel, but outstanding. Best after 2011." (03/2008)

1990 Pavie, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
92 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and fresh. Just what it should be. Deep ruby with red hue. Loads of chocolate, vanilla, tobacco and ripe fruit. Full bodied with lots of velvety tannins and a long finish. (JS)" (08/2000) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Perhaps the last great Pavie before Gerard Perse bought the estate in 1997. The 1990 Pavie sports a deep core with deep tawny rim and sports a very “classic” Pavie bouquet that is muted at first, but unfurls gracefully with intense cedar aromas deriving from the Cabernet Sauvignon. Underneath th...

90 points Wine Spectator: "All elegance and fine texture. Beautiful aromas of milk chocolate and ripe berries. Full- to medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a sweet fruit, chocolate aftertaste. (JS)" (05/1999) Jancis Robinson: "60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This was the wine that Neal Martin gave me blind when he interviewed me for his blog before it disappeared behind erobertparker.com’s paywall. Lustrous fox red. Lot of gamey development and sweetness. On the way down but lots of pleasure. Except for technocrats. Very hedon...
Price: $299.99

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 Canon is a little reticent to begin, opening out to notions of rare beef, cast iron pan, cigar boxes and cloves with a core of baked plums and mulberries plus a waft of dried lavender. Full, richly fruited and sill quite youthful, the palate has a firm yet velvety texture and seamless freshness supporting the generous fruit, finishing long and mineral laced.
