  2. Chateau Fage Graves De Vayers

    Chateau Fage Graves De Vayers


    "Chateau Fage Graves red is a unique and exclusive wine! The village of Vayres is actually a small town a few minutes from St. Emilion and Pomerol, only 4 or 5 of the Chateaux produce a white. The Sauvignon from Chateau Fage has the same characteristics and can be compared to a top Graves blanc for half the price!" Learn More

  4. Chateau Tarin Bordeaux

    Chateau Tarin Bordeaux


    The blended red wines of Bordeaux have gone down in history as the finest wines every produced, with collectors and many of the general public still eagerly anticipating the wineries of this region's new releases to this day. The secret to Bordeaux's monumental success has been their careful blending of high quality grape varietals, controlled and protected by French law. In Bordeaux, wineries can only produce red wines using a blend of two or more of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec or Carménere grape varietals, with the latter two becoming less and less commonly seen on bottles. The vast majority of Bordeaux red wines use Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varietals, boosted by a little Petit Verdot. These three grapes compliment each other beautifully as they age in oak, rounded out their tannins and the high astringency of the Sauvignon, and resulting in wonderfully complex flavors and aromas.

    Goldschmidt Fidelity 2014


    Nick Goldschmidt is a rare bird indeed; a superstar winemaker on three different continents starting in New Zealand and ending up in California. And with his years as Chief Winemaker at Simi Vineyards in Sonoma, he knows Alexander Valley like few others. He rates the Crazy Creek Estate where the grapes for this wine are sourced, as one of the top five sites in the region. An amazing value this Meritage-style blend of 82% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petite Verdot, aged 16 months in 15% new French Oak is lush and distinctive with supple cherry, berry and dark chocolate flavors. And this 2014, a drought year vintage that brought intensely flavored, concentrated fruit, has the density and structure to reward short-term aging. A true gift to California wine lovers from Nick Goldschmidt. It's a wine that could easily cost two to three times its modest price. A one time Wine Express Wine of the Year! Learn More
  8. Nederburg Brew Master Red

    Nederburg Brew Master Red


    The Brew Master is a Bordeaux-style blend that commemorates brew master andtea specialist Johann Graue, who revolutionised winemaking in South Africa withhis clonal experiments to isolate top-performing vines for reproduction, as wellas his introduction of cold fermentation techniques. The co-owner of a leadingbrewery in Germany before he came to South Africa, he acquired Nederburg in1937 and is believed to have created the foundation for excellence followed by hissuccessors. Graue understood long before the rest, that you must begin with thebest raw materials and that excellent wine originates in the vineyards. Learn More
  9. S de Siran Margaux

    S de Siran Margaux


    S de Siran is the Second Wine of Château Siran, and is also from the Margaux appellation. It is sourced from the vineyard’s young plots and from a selection of the First Wine that varies according to the vintage. The average age of the vines is between 5 and 15 years and, depending on the vintage, the volume of S de Siran is 30 to 40% of the total volume of production of the estate’s Margaux appellation wine.

    The grape composition is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This wine, which we look on as the little brother of the First Wine, is made with the same care and attention that the First Wine receives. It displays both charm and complexity and generally should be enjoyed within 5 to 7 years of age.

    Ideal drunk young and popular with numerous restaurants, it pairs well with white and red meats as well as with pasta dishes, pies and soufflés.

  13. Chateau La Tour Chambert

    Chateau La Tour Chambert


    This is a big, rich wine, with swathes of black currant fruit and ripe spice. The tannins are there too, a wall of solid texture and dark structure. With this weight and density, it's obvious that this wine needs some serious aging, so don't drink before 2018. Learn More

  15. Larose Trintaudon 2010

    Larose Trintaudon 2010


    Beautiful dark ruby color with quite an intense bouquet bringing together aromas of red ripe berries (raspberry) as well as spicier vanilla notes. On the palate the wine is incredibly round with a dense tannic structure, yet not overly massive. Great freshness finished off by slight mineral undertones and a silky texture. Without a doubt the best Larose Trintaudon of these last 25 years! Critical Acclaim James Suckling - "Aromas of blueberries and raspberries with minerals follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a chocolate, vanilla aftertaste. Needs time to integrate." Learn More
  16. CHATEAU PEYRABON Haut-Medoc 10'
  17. Meerlust Rubicon 2010

    Meerlust Rubicon 2010

  18. Chateau Brillette Moulis Medoc 2010

    Chateau Brillette Moulis Medoc 2010


    Another superb over-achiever from the appellation of Moulis in the Medoc, this wine, a blend of 48% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, shows lots of licorice, barbecue smoke, charcuterie, plum and black currants. It hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied opulence. The tannins are sweet and the acidity adequate to provide definition and vibrancy. This is a beauty. An outstanding effort from proprietors, the Flageul family. Learn More

  20. Chateau Tour Des Termes 2010

    Chateau Tour Des Termes 2010


    Château Tour des Termes is one of those special wines which from the very first taste, you know you will remember and want to come back to again soon. A magnificent nose of spices and smoky black fruit opens into a very well-structured, balanced wine, full of class, elegance and body. Wine Spectator - "Ripe and focused, with a mouthwatering iron note driving the cassis, blackberry and raspberry fruit along. Floral and chalk hints hang in the background for now. Pure. Best from 2014 through 2022." International Wine Cellar - "Bright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of red cherry, redcurrant and magnolia, plus nuances of wild herbs and smoke. Juicy, sweet and suave in the mouth, showing pure, penetrating red and dark berry flavors complemented but not overwhelmed by smoky oak and milk chocolate. The tannins and acids harmonize nicely on the persistent, clean, floral finish. A lovely, balanced midweight that many Bordeaux insiders prize for its excellent value. Jean-Luc Thunevin of Valandraud helps out here.Range: 87-90" Learn More
  21. Chateau Brown Pessac-Leognan 2012

    Chateau Brown Pessac-Leognan 2012

  25. Justin Isosceles 2013

    Justin Isosceles 2013


    Bright, nearly opaque, ruby purple core with a narrow, moderate intensity rim and slow forming slightly stained tears. Intense and complex with aromas of ripe black fruit, baking spice, sweet tobacco, leather, cocoa, oak barrel elements with subtle smoky eucalyptus accents. Dry and full-bodied with rich black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, vanilla, cinnamon and licorice spice notes on the entry. Savory, herbal and mint notes appear, followed by darkchocolate and smoky oak elements on the mid palate. The finish is very long and crisp with a complex interplay between the savory mid-palate and returning fruit of red cherry candy and sweet spice with a floral hint of violet, all framed by soft, chewy tannins. The 2013 ISOSCELES is drinking exceptionally well at release but has the structure to further develop beautifully over time. Great with classic cab fare like rich braised short ribs or grilled leg of lamb with garlic and herbs, the 2013 ISOSCELES also drinks well on its own due to its exceptional balance of flavor and texture even when young. Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot. Learn More

  32. 2005 Chateau Pavie Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

    2005 Chateau Pavie Saint-Emilion Grand Cru


    The Wine Advocate: 98+ points Now that the 2005 Pavie is in the bottle, I would place it, qualitatively, a notch below the prodigious 2000, and a few notches above the blockbuster 2003. There are 7,000 cases of this 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Disregarding the blatant jealousy of his success as well as his “outsider” status, proprietor Gerard Perse has pushed the envelope of quality, fashioning first-growth quality wines from one of Bordeaux’s finest terroirs. In St.-Emilion, only Ausone can be considered to have greater potential in terms of micro-climate and terroir. Pavie’s 2005 exhibits a thick-looking purple color to the rim as well as an exquisite perfume of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, unsmoked cigar tobacco, crushed rocks, damp earth, and hints of truffles and incense. The vineyard’s limestone soils have provided massive concentration, a laser-like precision, fresh, zesty acidity, and massive tannin. Despite the wine’s enormous concentration and intensity, there is a lightness to its style. As Perse has made clear, he is trying to produce modern day versions of such great vintages as 1921, 1929, 1945, and 1947, wines that lasted 50 or more years. I do not understand why Perse receives so much criticism. In the blind tastings of each new vintage conducted by the Grand Jury European, Pavie usually wins against 100 or so other great Bordeaux. As they say, the truth is irrefutable - this is one of the world’s most outstanding wines, and the 2005 Pavie should take its place among the greatest achievements of Bordeaux in the last 50 years. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2060. Learn More
  33. Ducru Beaucaillou Saint-Julian 10'

    Ducru Beaucaillou Saint-Julian 10'


    Another exceptional success for St-Julien in 2016, following the longest growing season in the recorded history of the property. Reasonable alcohols, because of the slow maturation, emphasise the juiciness of the fruit. Hugely intense and concentrated black brambly fruits, with layer upon layer of stunning liquorice, dark chocolate, rich black cherry and graphite. This is an utterly beautiful wine and it approaches the essence of what owner Bruno Borie must want for this estate, I am sure. It is easy to imagine uncorking this with excitement in 10 or 15 years. The final blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot, with a high tannin index of 80IPT and a 3.71pH, aged in 100% new oak for 18 months. Learn More
  34. Cos E'stournel Saint Estephe 09'

    Cos E'stournel Saint Estephe 09'


    Deep ruby color, with a spicy, rich, briery, tightly knit bouquet, this wine is deeper and more promising than the 1983, but relatively light, compact, and lean. Learn More
  35. Haut Brion Pessac-Leognan 09'

    Haut Brion Pessac-Leognan 09'


    What a blockbuster effort! Atypically powerful, one day, the 2009 Haut-Brion may be considered to be the 21st century version of the 1959. It is an extraordinarily complex, concentrated effort made from a blend of 46% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc with the highest alcohol ever achieved at this estate, 14.3%. Even richer than the perfect 1989, with similar technical numbers although slightly higher extract and alcohol, it offers up a sensational perfume of subtle burning embers, unsmoked cigar tobacco, charcoal, black raspberries, wet gravel, plums, figs and blueberries. There is so much going on in the aromatics that one almost hesitates to stop smelling it. However, when it hits the palate, it is hardly a letdown. This unctuously textured, full-bodied 2009 possesses low acidity along with stunning extract and remarkable clarity for a wine with a pH close to 4.0. The good news is that there are 10,500 cases of the 2009, one of the most compelling examples of Haut-Brion ever made. Learn More
  36. Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 09'

    Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 09'


    Chateau Mouton Rothschild dates back to the 1730's. In 1853 Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild bought the vineyard of Mouton in the Medoc and it was re-named Mouton Rothschild. It was classified as a second growth wine until 1973 when it was promoted to first growth status. The wines stand out from other Bordeaux wines as for each vintage, a well-known artist is commissioned to design a new label, making the wine very collectable. The vineyards total 75 hectares producing around 25,000 cases with plantings of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Learn More
  37. Haut Brion Pessac-Leognan 85'

    Haut Brion Pessac-Leognan 85'


    This has always been one of the more seductive, savory, complex Haut-Brions of the eighties. My notes have always suggested that it is the quintessentially elegant, finesse-styled Haut-Brion. The color remains a deep rubypurple with slight lightening at the edge. The knock-out nose of intense jammy black fruits, smoke, cedar, herbs, and new oak is followed by a generously concentrated, rich, gorgeously proportioned and layered Haut-Brion with no hard edges. Everything - alcohol, acidity, tannin - is beautifully integrated into the seamless personality of the 1985. Learn More
  38. Chateau Petrus 13' Pomerol

    Chateau Petrus 13' Pomerol


    It exhibits a dense purple color along with deep mulberry, black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with a notion of licorice. Learn More
  39. Chateau Petrus 12' Pomerol

    Chateau Petrus 12' Pomerol


    This shows fabulous length with a chocolate, berry and mineral undertone. Licorice and currants too. Full body yet refined with seamless tannins. Goes on for minutes. It shows such amazing length and elegance. Depth. Phenomenal structure here, especially for the vintage. Reminds me of the 1998 or 1971, which were structured yet very fine. Learn More
