Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2015 Product #31344 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2015 Ch La Roche St. Jean Bordeaux Rouge 2015

We’ve been fans of this small (for Bordeaux) family estate for years but the 2015 steps up the quality to an entirely new level! It’s a blend of un-oaked Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) from the sand, clay and limestone soils of Bordeaux’s Entre Deux Mers region – part of the “Right Bank” that excelled in the outstanding 2015 vintage.

You'll find it deliciously fresh and fun from the first pour and sip, but the real fun comes over the next few hours (or days), as the aromas and flavors get deeper and darker, with black currant, cedar, and dark chocolate holding center stage and classic Bordeaux notes of cedar, tobacco and crushed herb emerging on top.  The texture stays wonderful throughout - mouthfilling and dense enough to demand attention but never heavy or thick or plodding.  And the finish just keeps getting better and better, smooth and long with lingering flavors of fruit, cedar, chocolate and spice.  Hard to resist right this second, but do yourself a favor and lay some down and then pull a bottle out for a special dinner up to 10 years from now.  No one will ever believe what you paid!

Ch Damase Bordeaux Superieur 2011 Product #31350 (In Stock)
Ch Damase Bordeaux Superieur 2011 Ch Damase Bordeaux Superieur 2011

Mostly Merlot, with 10% Carmenere and 5% Petit Verdot for color and structure.  Unusually - at least at this price point - the wine ages entirely in new and 1 year-old oak casks for a year.  A richly fruit-filled Bordeaux - cherry, cassis, plum - with sophisticated accents of smoke, cedar, and herb.  Almost California fruit levels with sweet spice, but plenty of Bordeaux class at the end.

Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2014 Product #31429 (In Stock)
Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2014 Ch Recougne Bordeaux Superior 2014

Once again, just lovely and superb value, too!

"The Château Recougne 2014 is a blend of 90% Merlot, 2% Carmenere and 8% Cabernet Franc. It has a lovely, well-defined and vibrant nose, classic in style just like the old school label. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh red berry fruit, a keen line of acidity, plenty of vibrant cherries coming towards the graphite tinged finish. If you want a well crafted old fashioned Bordeaux wine, look no further! This is a great success for the estate under the guiding hand of Dr. Alain Raynaud."Wine Advocate 89-91 points

Ch Desclau Bordeaux Superieur 2010 Product #30457 (In Stock)
Ch Desclau Bordeaux Superieur 2010 Ch Desclau Bordeaux Superieur 2010

Someday, all the little Bordeaux from the great 2010 harvest will be gone, but until then, the values remain superb.  Here's another, based on 40% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.  The Verdot really shows her in notes of candied violet and rich chocolate while the Cabernets add cedar, tobacco, currant, and dark cherry notes.  Finishes firm with spice, cedar and currant lingering.  Delicious right now and will improve for another 5 years or so.

Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe Cotes De Castillon 2014 Product #31624 (In Stock)
Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe Cotes De Castillon 2014 Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe Cotes De Castillon 2014

This is the second wine of Chateau d'Aiguilhe, perhaps the best estate in the Cotes de Castillon.  Owner Stephan Neipperg is also responsible for better known wines from Canon-la-Gaffeliere, Clor l'Oratoire and La Mondotte.  This Merlot-based blend comes from 65 year-old vines and is rich, round, and dark-fruited with generous amounts of chocolate and spice.  Notes of Bordeaux cedar and herb weave in and out of the generous fruit and linger on the supple, smooth, finish.  A winner!

Cheval Noir Saint Emilion 2014 Product #31764 (In Stock)

Alas, this doesn't have anything to do with Ch Cheval-Blanc, but it is a very tasty, drink me now, Bordeaux!  From purchased fruit, it's a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc aged in tank.  Classic Bordeaux aromas and flavors of red currant, cherry, cedar and crushed herb with medium-bodied weight and a touch of dusty tannin at the end. A great match for lighter foods and lean meats.

Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2013 (375ml) Product #31486 (In Stock)
Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2013 (375ml) Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2013 (375ml)

The second wine from Ch Guiraud, this plays on the contrast between botrytis-tinged sweetness and clean Sauvignon Blanc fruit and acids. Rock solid Sauternes aromas and flavors of apricot, toasted almond, white peach, and honey, a creamy texture, and refreshing ginger and lemon notes on the finish.  For lighter desserts or even with savory caper/lemon sauce!

Ch du Retout Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2014 Product #31795 (In Stock)
Ch du Retout Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2014 Ch du Retout Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2014

A vintage that's getting more and more acclaim and where this fine estate shines. It's a big, rich, wine you can enjoy now or cellar for 10 years.

"The 2014 Château du Retout has a potent blueberry and blackberry-scented bouquet with a strong floral element. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, good depth and well judged acidity to counterbalance the intensity here. It is a big, bold statement of a wine, one that the team manages to pull off because there is plenty of depth and freshness on the finish."Wine Advocate 89 points

"Very solid, with a delicious core of plum, cassis and raspberry fruit, lined with a stony thread that gives the finish spine and definition. Savory and iron hints show in the background. Has range and character."Wine Spectator 90-93 points

Ch La Cardonne Medoc 2009 Product #27116 (In Stock)
Ch La Cardonne Medoc 2009 Ch La Cardonne Medoc 2009

Nicely in the drinking window now with miles to go in cellar  yet.

"This is a major sleeper of the vintage and the best wine I have ever tasted from La Cardonne, which is in the northern end of the Medoc, near the town of Blaignan. A blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, this 2009 offers up notes of tobacco leaf, cassis, and loamy soil with underbrush nuances. With excellent texture, impressive purity, and medium to full body, this is a rich, over-achieving cru bourgeois to drink over the next decade."Wine Advocate 88 points

"Pretty blueberry and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Lots going on. Big wine for the appellation. Best in a long time from here."Wine Spectator 89-92 points

Ch d'Anice Graves Blanc 2015 Product #31669 (In Stock)
Ch d'Anice Graves Blanc 2015 Ch d'Anice Graves Blanc 2015

Want to remember why you used to love a good white Graves so much?  Or discover how much more there can be to white Bordeaux when snappy Sauvignon Blanc gets some extra depth from rich, round, earthy Semillon?  Try this 50/50 blend with a bit of neutral oak for extra complexity.  Plenty of stone and citrus fruit here with captivating notes of wet wool, smoke, and herb.  Round on the midpalate and then crisp and clean on the lemon, peach and herb finish.  A great match for herby casseroles or anything from the sea.

Ch Larose Perganson Haut Medoc 2009 Product #30194 (In Stock)
Ch Larose Perganson Haut Medoc 2009 Ch Larose Perganson Haut Medoc 2009

A rare 2009 Bordeaux that delighted both America’s Robert Parker and Britan’s Jancis Robinson on release and has just gotten better since.  It's from 35 year-old vines growing on classic Bordeaux gravel soils just outside Pauillac and St. Julien, aged in tank (15%) and oak (85%) including about 50% new French oak.  The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon (for structure and power), 45% Merlot (for body and fruit) and 5% Petit Verdot (color, perfume), all from sustainably farmed 35 year-old vines.  Both British critic Jancis Robinson (17/20 points) and American Robert Parker (90 points, Sleeper of the Vintage") loved it on release, but it's even better now - as you'll see from James Suckling's just released review. A rich, satisfying, Bordeaux to drink right now with beef and lamb or hold through 2024.

"This is the posh sister to Larose-Trintaudon from vineyards in Arcins. Healthy crimson. Very sophisticated, swish perfume. Tastes as though an enormous amount of attention has been lavished on this wine. Top-quality oak for a start and really concentrated fruit. Lively and ripe. Great balance."  Jancis Robinson 17/20 points

“Complex aromas of blueberries, licorice and walnuts follow through to a full body, round and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Very fine indeed. Drink or hold.”  James Suckling 92 points (October, 2015)

"A sleeper of the vintage and impressive is their cuvee called Larose Perganson, which in 2009 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. It has the silkiness of its sibling, but is fuller-bodied, with more layers of fruit and glycerin and a heady finish (14.3% alcohol). It is opulent and pure, with loads of cassis, black raspberry and licorice notes backed up with some subtle oak. Drink it over the next decade."Wine Advocate 90 points

Ch Larose Trintaudon Haut Medoc 2010 Ch Larose Trintaudon Haut Medoc 2010

Great vintages - like 2010 - deliver great wines up and down the price ladder.  And that's the story here with this iconic Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois.  Sustainably farmed Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%) delivers lively aromas of plum, black cherry, and smoky herb and flavors of ripe currant, cedar, and spice.  Fine acids and soft tannins keep this refreshing and make it equally delicious at table or just to sip.  Outstanding value.

Ch Paloumey Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2010 Ch Paloumey Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2010

Dense and powerful but opening nicely.

"Dark, grippy and very tarry, with lots of pebbly tannins driving underneath the layers of boysenberry, steeped fig and blackberry fruit. Ample baker's chocolate and dark tobacco fill in the remaining space. This will need a little cellaring to round into form, but remains a very solid, muscular version. Best from 2015 through 2022."Wine Spectator 91 points
