Chateau L'Arrosee Saint Emilion 2005 750 mL French Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau L'Arrosee Saint Emilion 2005 750 mL French Red Bordeaux Wine

91 Wine Advocate eRobertParker.com #219 Jun 2015 Drink: 2015 - 2030

"A Bordeaux that seems to have a Burgundian personality, L’Arrosée’s 2005 displays elegance and finesse, with sweet black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, hints of minerality and earth, but soft tannin, a lush, medium-bodied style, and impressive concentration, purity and overall texture. By no means a blockbuster (in a vintage that produced almost endless numbers of them), this wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 15-20 years." -Robert M. Parker Jr.

Chateau La Conseillante Pomerol 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau La Conseillante Pomerol 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 96 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "La Conseillante made an excellent wine in 2001, another great one in 2005, and the estate hit home runs in both 2008 and, above all, in 2009. In fact, the latter vintage may well end up being the modern-day reference point for La Conseillante. Nevertheless, there's a lot to be said for this 2000. An elegant, gentle style that is never a blockbuster, the 2000 La Conseillante has a deep ruby/plum/purple color and an unbelievably expressive nose of sweet kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, incense, toast, and licorice. Full-bodied yet ethereal in the sense that it seems to combine power along with eloquence and delicacy, this is a beautifully pure wine that has just hit its plateau of full maturity, although ideally I think it would benefit strongly from another 4-5 years of bottle age and drink well for two to three decades." -Robert Parker

Chateau La Mondotte St. Emilion 1996 Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL
Chateau La Mondotte St. Emilion 1996 Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited, no discounts! 97 Points - Wine Advocate, April 1999 "An amazing wine, the 1996 La Mondotte (approximately 800 cases made from a 30-year old parcel of 100% Merlot planted on a hillside between Le Tertre-Roteboeuf and Canon La Gaffeliere) is a super-star. If readers cannot get excited by tasting the 1996, they should change beverages. It is amazing for both its appellation and the vintage, revealing a remarkable level of richness, profound concentration, and integrated tannin. The thick purple color suggests a wine of extraordinary extract and richness. This super-concentrated wine offers a spectacular nose of roasted coffee, licorice, blueberries, and black currants intermixed with smoky new oak. It possesses full body, a multidimensional, layered personality with extraordinary depth of fruit, a seamless texture, amazing viscosity, and a long, 45-second finish. The tannin is sweet and well-integrated. This blockbuster St.-Emilion should be at its best between 2006-2025. A dry, vintage port Fonseca! For its immense size, this wine is neither heavy nor over-done!" -Robert Parker

Chateau Lagrange St. Julien 2010 French Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau Lagrange St. Julien 2010 French Red Bordeaux Wine
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast, February, 2013
"With vineyards in the west of Saint-Julien, Lagrange produces wines that are polished and elegant. In 2010, that style has been suffused with tannins while also delivering a black currant flavor. The wine is rich and ripe, with just the right amount of tannic structure for the fruit." —Roger Voss

92 Points - Wine Spectator, March 2013
"Notes of singed alder, graphite and charcoal wrap around the core of intense blackberry paste, warm plum sauce and currant preserves. Turns sleek and racy on the well-knit finish despite the notable grip. Best from 2015 through 2030." –James Molesworth

Chateau Lascombes Margaux 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau Lascombes Margaux 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine

Limited, No discounts! 92 Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "In less than five years this property has emerged as one of the appellation's up and coming stars thanks to the infusion of money from the American conglomerate, Colony Capital, as well as the braintrust that now oversees the winemaking, Yves Vatelot (of Reignac fame) and the internationally renowned oenologist, Michel Rolland. The dark plum/ruby-hued, open-knit 2003 offers a big, sweet nose of barbecue smoke, plum liqueur, creme de cassis, flowers, new saddle leather, and damp earth. Loads of black fruits, a full-bodied palate impression, low acidity, and a savory, expansive mouthfeel suggest it can be drunk in 2-3 years, or cellared for 15+." -Robert Parker 91 Points - Wine Spectator, March 2006 "Aromas of blackberry and chocolate follow through to a full-bodied palate, with big velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2010. 17,500 cases made." -James Suckling

Chateau Moulin St. George St. Emilion 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine

Limited, No discounts. 91 Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "Another estate owned by perfectionist Alain Vauthier (the proprietor of Ausone), this is the poor person's value pick from this proprietor. One of the finest vintages ever made by Alain Vauthier is the 2003 Moulin St.-Georges, a sleeper of the vintage. Deep purple to the rim with an exquisite nose of blueberries, white flowers, crushed rocks, and mulberry, the wine is rich, textured, powerful, and much more structured and full-bodied than it usually is in other vintages. This wine will actually benefit from 3-4 years of bottle-age and drink well for 15-20 years." -Robert Parker

Chateau Pavie St. Emilion 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau Pavie St. Emilion 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 98+ Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "This 92-acre vineyard, which enjoys an impeccable southern orientation, is composed of limestone on the upper slopes, clay and limestone in the middle, and sand and clay at the base. Proprietor Gerard Perse, who has done a brilliant job since acquiring the estate in 1998, continues to push the envelope of quality to higher and higher heights. Planted with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes receive kid glove treatment with hand-harvesting into small plastic lugs, two triage tables, and aging for 28 months in 100% new oak that is purchased in advance, then air-dried and coopered according to Perse's specifications. In short, the man is a perfectionist, and the quality of all the estates he owns has soared dramatically." -Robert Parker 96 Points - Wine Spectator, July 2006 "Dark purple. Shows intense aromas of raisin, coffee and treacle tart. Very, very ripe. Full-bodied, superrich and velvety. This is so layered and powerful. Blockbuster. Best after 2008. 7,500 cases made." -James Suckling

Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1988 French Dessert Wine
Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1988 French Dessert Wine

Extremely Limited! No Discounts rated 93 points Wine Advocate April 1995

"Although the 1988 received the highest marks of the 1988, 1989 and 1990 vintages, it remains a very backward wine. Full-bodied and powerful, extremely rich and dense, it may be the least evolved 1988. The nose offers enticing coconut, orange, vanilla, and honeyed scents. The flavors are highly extracted. The wine's acidity and youthfulness suggest this wine needs another 5-10 years of cellaring. It should keep for 30 years.Drink 2000-2025" -Robert Parker rated 90 points Winespectator "A beautiful, fresh and elegant Sauternes, with apple pie, lemon and candied apple on the nose. Full-bodied, with bright and clean aniseed, apple and apricot flavors. Medium-sweet and a crisp finish. Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now." -James Suckling

Chateau Sanctus St Emilion 2005 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750mL
Chateau Sanctus St Emilion 2005 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750mL
Rated 93 points from The Wine Advocate; eRobertParker.com, #176 April, 2008:
 
"From a special 7.5 acre parcel culled from the Bienfaisance vineyard, this 1,000-case cuvee is dominated by its Merlot component (the blend also includes some Cabernet Franc). As are most of St.-Emilion’s garigiste wines, it is given a Burgundian-like treatment of pre-fermentation cold maceration, malolactic in barrel, aging on its lees, and little clarification, all designed to accentuate the terroir, and enhance the wine’s texture and perfume. The stunningly perfumed 2005 offers up notions of toast, black cherry jam, blackberries, espresso roast, white chocolate, and juicy meat. It is full-bodied as well as opulent for the vintage, with a gorgeous texture, and a long, 35+ second finish. Consume it over the next 15 or more years. Drink: 2008-2023"
