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

Fonseca Porto Vintage Port 1992 1.5 Liter Portuguese dessert wine

Wine Advocate # 97 (Feb 1995) Rating: 97 points Drink 1995 - 2035 "Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house's most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years." -Robert Parker

Taylor Fladgate vintage Port 1992 Portugese Red Dessert Wine 750 mL
Taylor Fladgate vintage Port 1992 Portugese Red Dessert Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited! No Discounts rated 100 points Wine Advocate February 1995 "Taylor's 1992 Vintage Port is unquestionably the greatest young port I have ever tasted. It represents the essence of what vintage port can achieve. The color is an opaque black/purple, and the nose offers up fabulously intense aromas of minerals, cassis, blackberries, licorice, and spices, as well as extraordinary purity and penetration. Yet this is still an unformed and infantile wine. If Chateau Latour made a late-harvest Cabernet Sauvignon, I suspect it might smell like this. In the mouth, the wine is out of this world, displaying layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits backed by well-integrated tannin and structure. This is a massive, magnificently rich, full-bodied port that will be far more flattering in its youth than were such Taylors as the 1983, 1977, or 1970. It possesses awesome fruit, marvelous intensity, and lavish opulence, all brilliantly well-delineated by the wine's formidable structure. This monumental 30-50 year port is a must purchase for port aficionados.! Also noteworthy is the fact that the 1992 Taylor commemorates the 300th anniversary of this firm, as evidenced by the special bottle Taylor used for this port." -Robert Parker

rated 96 points Winespectator May 31, 2005 "Fresh and lively, with raisin, spice and hints of blackberry. Full-bodied and very tight, with plenty of tannins. Very long. Needs to open. '91/'92 Port retrospective. Best after 2008. 6,200 cases made." –James Suckling

Taylor Fladgate Vintage Porto 1994 Portuguese Dessert Wine
Taylor Fladgate Vintage Porto 1994 Portuguese Dessert Wine

Extremely limited! No Discounts rated 100 points Winespectator, #1 of Winespectator's Top 100 wines of the year 1997 "In a word, superb. It's full-bodied, moderately sweet and incredibly tannic, but there's amazing finesse and refinement to the texture, not to mention fabulous, concentrated aromas of raspberries, violets and other flowers. Perhaps the greatest Taylor ever, it's better than either the '92 or the '70, though it's very like the '70 in structure. Best after 2010. 10,000 cases made." –James Suckling

rated 97 points Wine Advocate October 1996 "When tasting young vintage ports, Taylor is always the most backward. Yet potentially, it has the capability to be the most majestic. This classically made, opaque purple-colored wine is crammed with black fruits (blueberries and cassis). It reveals high tannin and a reserved style, but it is enormously constituted with massive body, a formidable mid-palate, and exceptional length. It is a young, rich, powerful Taylor that will require 10-15 years of aging. Compared to the more flashy, forward style of the 1992, the 1994 has more in common with such vintages as 1977 and 1970. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2045." -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 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 Duhart Milon Rothschild Pauilac 2005 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750mL
Chateau Duhart Milon Rothschild Pauilac 2005 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750mL
Rated 93 points from The Wine Advocate; eRobertParker.com, #219 June, 2015:
 
"This property, which has benefitted enormously from tremendous investments from the Rothschild family that owns Lafite, has turned out a dense purple-colored wine in 2005. Offering broad, expansive, supple and silky tannin as well as loads of Asian plum sauce, blackcurrants, and sweet cherries, this wine is seductive, medium to full-bodied, and luscious. This successful effort from the Rothschilds should continue to drink well for at least another two decades. Drink: 2015-2035."

Chateau Kirwan Margaux 2005 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750mL
Rated 90+ points from The Wine Advocate; eRobertParker.com, #219 June, 2015:
 
"A third-growth, this intense, powerful and concentrated wine should play to its strengths in a vintage such as 2005, with its enormous tannin and density. This is one of the more backward of the 2005s, quite masculine, tannic and bold, with a deep ruby/purple color, lots of spice, a touch of wood and new oak as well as a medium to full-bodied, rather backward, tannic mouthfeel. It’s all there, and the wine certainly has plenty of concentration, but it needs another 3-5 years of cellaring. It should drink well for at least a quarter of a century. Drink: 2018-2045."

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
