Exclusive Bordeaux Bottles Available



2002 Chateau Haut Bailly90 Points Parker10 bottles available – List $79.99 / Sale Price $69.99
“An elegant, dark ruby/purple-tinged effort displaying notes of tobacco smoke intermixed with sweet currant, cherry, and some toast, this medium-bodied wine has the hallmark purity married graciously with nicely concentrated fruit. The tannins are sweet but present and give definition to this well-made Pessac-Leognan. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016”

2002 Chateau Gaffelliere89 Points Parker -9 bottles available – List $55.99 / Sale Price $50.99
“An elegant, light to medium-weight Bordeaux, the ruby/purple-colored 2002 offers sweet aromas of cherries, cranberries, and earth, medium body, very good concentration, nice sweetness and suppleness, but little depth or concentration. Drink it over the next decade.”

2003 Tourelles Longueville – 3 bottles available – List $48.99 / Sale Price $34.99
“The second wine of Pichon Baron, the Les Tourelles de Longueville, is the best second effort I have tasted from this estate. An equal part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is very seductive, with loads of black fruits, an almost caramelized note, low acidity and voluptuous texture. Endearing and pure, this full-bodied second wine is better than many vintages of the grand vin from the 1940s and 1950s. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.”

2005 Cos D’estournel98 Points Parker9 bottles available – List Price $399.99 / Sale Price $349.99
“While I am not convinced the 2005 Cos d’Estournel will eclipse the compelling 2003 Cos, it is unquestionably another superb classic from proprietor Michel Reybier and his brilliant winemaker, Jean-Guillaume Prats. Made from an unusually high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (78%) and the balance mostly Merlot with a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc, this superb effort requires plenty of time in the bottle. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as a glorious perfume of licorice, Asian spices, creme de cassis, blackberries, and toasty oak. This full-bodied St.-Estephe is exceptionally powerful, pure, and dense with a layered mid-palate that builds like a skyscraper. While there are massive tannins, they are remarkably velvety and well-integrated in this big, backstrapping effort that should enjoy an unusually long life. Forget it for 8-10 years, and drink it between 2017-2040.”

2006 Cos D’estournel- $399.99

2004 Lafon Rochet90 Points Parker – 12 bottles available – List Price $49.99 / Sale Price $42.99
“A dark ruby/purple color and a bouquet of plums, black raspberries, licorice, roasted herbs, and incense are followed by a medium to full-bodied, rich, structured, backward wine that requires 6-10 years of bottle age. It should drink well for two decades. For some reason, Lafon Rochet remains under-priced for the quality of wines it is producing.”

2005 Lafon Rochet – $89

2004 Baron Pichon Longeville93 Points Parker12 bottles– List Price $89.99 / Sale Price $74.99
“An undeniable star of the vintage, Pichon-Baron’s 2004 boasts an inky/ruby/purple color to the rim as well as a big, sweet nose of melted licorice, chocolate, black currant jam, truffles, and charcoal embers. Soft tannin, full body, and abundant opulence and flesh are atypical for the vintage character, but this wine is loaded. Pure, ripe, and evolved, it should be at its finest between 2009-2022.”

2006 Grand Puy Lacoste90 Points Parker – 8 bottles available – List Price $54.99 / Sale Price $41.99
“Ducasse has definitely turned up the level of quality over the last 7-8 years. Classic creme de cassis notes intermixed with licorice, spring flowers, a bit of toast and smoke are all present in this medium to full-bodied, elegant, yet savory, expansively flavored, deep, silky-textured wine that has outstanding depth, purity, and a good 20-second finish. This is approachable enough to drink in 2-3 years but certainly has the stuffing to last 15-18.

1999 Conseillante9 bottles available – List Price $99.99 / Sale Price $84.99
“The dark ruby-colored 1999 is a beautifully complex, evolved, seductive style of La Conseillante. The wine exhibits sweet black raspberry and cherry liqueur notes intermixed with cedar, toasty oak, licorice, new saddle leather, and dried herbs. It is medium-bodied with no hard edges, extremely pure, and almost sweet (from ripe fruit, not sugar). This is a lush, delicious La Conseillante that merits its reputation as “a Burgundy from Bordeaux.”

1998 Chateau Nennin92-94 Points Parker1 Bottle Available– List $114.99 / Sale Price – $89.99
“This is the first of what should be a series of prodigious Nenins. Forty percent of the crop was utilized in this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The wine has added considerable fat since tasted last spring. A dense purple color is followed by a gorgeous bouquet of black raspberry/kirsch, vanillin, and spice. Unctuously-textured, dense, and chewy, with low acidity, and a saturating mouth-feel, this is the finest Nenin made in 3-4 decades. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025.”

2001 l’Eglise Clinet 94 Points Parker – 5 bottles available – List Price 189.99 / Sale Price $159.99
“A brilliant effort (one of the vintage’s most substantial wines), proprietor Denis Durantou has turned in a tour de force in 2001. Sadly, there are only 1,500 cases of this 85% Merlot / 15% Cabernet Franc blend (from vines averaging 40 years of age). This beauty boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as a glorious nose of red and black fruits, flowers, sweet oak, and hints of licorice as well as truffles. Opulent, medium to full-bodied, concentrated, tannic, and persistent on the palate (the finish lasts 40 seconds), give it 2-4 years of cellaring, and drink it between 2007-2020.”

2001 La Mondotte94 Points Parker10 bottles available – List Price $329.99 / Sale Price $249.99
“Made in an elegant, surprisingly low key style for La Mondotte, the concentrated, delicious, opaque purple-colored 2001 builds incrementally on the palate. An impressive bouquet of black cherries, creme de cassis, toast, and minerals is followed by a medium to full-bodied effort with nicely integrated wood, acidity, and tannin as well as a long finish. This is a brilliant wine, and one of the finest efforts of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2017.”

1999 Chateau Belair13 bottles available – List Price $89.99 / Sale Price $68.99
“Pretty floral notes compliment the aromas of fresh earth, coffee and ripe black plum fruit. Concentrated plum and cassis berry fruit on the tongue with soft round tannins, a very drinkable wine with all the right pieces in place, notes of coffee and earth on the finish. Excellent!”
