Size750MLVintage2010SKU17854Once again in 2010, notes of mocha, espresso roast, chocolate, creme de cassis and scorched earth soar from this opaque purple-colored wine. It is aged in 100% new oak, but that is hardly noticeable given the wine
Size750MLVintage2008SKU18188Smooth, rich and creamy, with mocha-laced plum and black cherry fruit that's elegant, stylish, full-bodied and complex, ending with a long, firm, concentrated finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. 93 points Wine Spectator (2006)
Size750MLVintage2006SKU8355This is clearly the ripest wine with an exceptionally pretty nose of fresh red pinot fruit nuanced by notes of game, warm earth and underbrush that is also picked up on the supple, sweet and detailed flavors on the muscled and beautifully long finish. Recommended. Outstanding! Allen Meadows - Burghound
Size750MLVintage1998SKU4609This is the benchmark for all other vintage Roses. Gorgeous aromas of strawberry and citrus oil with an extra-fine mousse. The palate reveals a significant nod to the Pinot Noir in the blend with bright cherry and yeast as well as balancing acidity. While this is delicious now, the future is promising.
Size750MLVintage2000SKU8461The Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon is refined and elegant, with lovely depth and richness in its fragrant fruit. It is weightier than the NV Brut Rose yet everything is simply in the right place. 93pts Wine Advocate
Size750MLVintage1996SKU7030The nose is an enticing melange of floral and earth aromas with a dollop of savoury: jasmine, slate, white pepper, freshly baked bread and marmite. The palate is very dry, very tight and seems to be restraining an explosion of fruit and autolytic expression. Crisp acidity and very fine bubbles... 95pts Wine Advocate (1996)
Size750MLVintage2005SKU6278A deeply pitched and very ripe nose of earthy violet aromas trimmed in subtle wood spice notes introduces rich, full and powerful flavors that possess excellent mid-palate sap that helps to buffer the very firm and dense tannic spine on the youthfully austere finish. This is a very serious no-nonsense wine clearly built for long aging. Allen Meadows-Burghound
Size750MLVintage2005SKU7838Noticeable if not dominant wood spice frames an earthy mix of both red and black berry fruit aromas complements the rich, full and generous mouth coating flavors that offer excellent intensity, all wrapped in a finish that sports completely buried tannins and fine length. Good juice and excellent potential. Outstanding! Allen Meadows-Burghound
Size750MLVintage2005SKU7339This too is extremely fresh and vibrant with a highly expressive nose dominated by an intense minerality on the bright, elegant and airy red pinot fruit and hints of floral and violet notes that can also be found on the ripe, rich, full and stony flavors that are a model of harmony and transparency. This is textbook, indeed crystalline Estournelles and highly recommended.
Size500MLVintage1997SKU4707The stunning, virtually perfect, 1997 Vouvray Moelleux Cuvee Constance is so captivatingly pure, focused, and intricate as to be all but impossible to adequately describe. On the palate fresh peaches, citrus fruits, honey, acacia blossoms, quinine, chalk, and lemony mangoes can be found. Additionally, this medium-to-full-bodied, penetrating, yet perfectly balanced wine has a finish that seemingly lingers forever, revealing even more waves of minerals and fruit. 99pts Wine Advocate (1997)!
Size750MLVintage2005SKU7816Deep ruby. A strongly reduced nose gives up little but the well-muscled flavors are big, robust and very powerful and possess the class young Clos de Vougeot youthful austerity. This is very primary and awkward yet the quality of the raw material is clear and this should reward 10 to 15 years of cellar time.allen meadows-Burghound
Size750MLVintage2010SKU17924The 2010 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is a truly outstanding wine that leaves a lasting memory for those who are lucky enough to enjoy it. What stands out is the absolutely seamless-seamless-seamless (yes, it's worth repeating three times) integration of its many moving parts. The wine magically transitions from cherry, spice, chocolate and espresso in one melodic and continuous loop. It exudes balance and elegance over long, delicious minutes. It is profoundly impressive 97+ Points Wine Advocate
Size750MLVintage2005SKU5020Probably the greatest Pape-Clement ever made, the dense purple-colored 2005 exhibits sumptuous notes of smoky scorched earth, graphite, melted licorice, and blackberries. Once past the exquisite perfume, the wine reveals full body, extraordinary concentration, plenty of chocolate, smoke, cassis, and blackberry flavors. 98 points Robert Parker
Size750MLVintage2009SKU13110A beautiful effort, the 2009 Pichon Lalande, possesses copious mocha, black currant, forest floor and herbaceous characteristics. It is a charming, surprisingly open knit Pauillac with wonderful freshness, a plump, fleshy mouthfeel, opulence and unctuosity, and a well-delineated, luscious style. 95pts Wine Advocate (2009)
Size1.5LVintage1998SKU7046The freshness of the cuvee Nicolas Francois Billecart immediately apparent from its aromatic complexity - aromas of white flowers mixed with subtle notes of brioche. Wonderfully rich and elegant at the same time with lovely freshness on the palate. A classy blend of several Grand Cru vineyards.
Size750MLVintage2009SKU13103Distinctive, with atypical (for St.-Emilion) force and drive to the black currant, roasted cedar and maduro tobacco flavors, which are supported by a dense, loam-tinged structure. Terrific roasted espresso, ganache and fig paste notes wait in reserve. Very muscular, but with the cut for balance."" 96 Points Wine Spectator
Size750MLVintage2005SKU6890This too is very densely fruited with the same intense floral notes but here the fruit is darker with blue and black berry aromas that continue onto the palate saturating and hugely concentrated flavors that exude power and punch yet there is real depth as well, all wrapped in a very firmly but not aggressively structured finish that leaves no doubt that this will last for 50 years or longer. Don't Miss! Allen Meadows-Burghound
Size750MLVintage2005SKU5019This is an exceptionally powerful wine with a dense purple color, superb intensity, and a beautiful, sweet nose of spring flowers, raspberries, blueberries, graphite, and creme de cassis. Full-bodied with fabulous concentration, exceptionally high tannin, good acidity, and massive layers of richness that build incrementally on the palate. 97 pts Wine Advocate (2005)
Size750MLVintage1971SKU5262A shimmering jewel of a Vouvray from the personification of vouvray winemaking, Gaston Huet. There are remarkable floral, mineral, and honeyed bee's wax notes in this stunner. The length and complexity are a component of the famed Clos de Bourg vineyard.
Size750MLVintage1992SKU2030In the mouth, the wine is out of this world, displaying layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits backed by well-integrated tannin and structure. It possesses awesome fruit, marvelous intensity, and lavish opulence, all brilliantly well-delineated by the wine's formidable structure. 100pts Wine Advocate (1992)
Size750MLVintage2009SKU16741100 Points Robert Parker. ""The 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou will eclipse the brilliant wines produced in 2005, 2003 and 2000... A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot that achieved 13.5% natural alcohol, this inky purple, unctuous wine possesses classic aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, blueberries, violets, licorice and Christmas fruitcake. Full-bodied and intense with Ducru
