  1. Château Lafont-Fourcat Bordeaux

    2014 / 750 ml. | Item#33201

    JS8989 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, February 14, 2017
    A dark, savory nose with a soy-sauce note. Quite a sweet and generous front palate, then the fresh acidity and dry tannins kick in, making the finish just a bit chewy. Drink now.
    RP88+88–90 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2015
    The Château Lafont-Fourcat 2014, which is Merlot with a soupcon of Malbec, has an appreciable degree of succulence on the nose: dark plum and blueberries, nicely defined and focused with a touch of violet coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with quite sharp acidity that lends this freshness and tension. It gently builds a delivers a razor-sharp, citric-fresh finish. This is very promising.

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#48013

    JS91+91–92 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Saturday, April 30, 2016
    A red with lots of blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 21st Feb 2018
    The 2015 Virginie Thunevin is medium garnet-purple colored with an earthy/meaty nose of Bovril and forest floor over a core of black plums and black cherries plus a waft of truffles. The full-bodied palate is concentrated and packed with savory layers with nice, ripe, plush tannins and great length.
    VN87+87–89 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2016
    The 2015 Virginie Thunevin is a wine of pure pleasure. Raspberry jam, super-ripe blueberries, spices, mocha, mint and licorice are fused together in an unctuous, generous red that captures the essence of the vintage on the Right Bank.

    JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - March 15, 2018
    The deeper ruby-colored 2015 Château Damase is 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Carmenère. Aged 18 months in new and once-used barrels, it offers medium-bodied notes of red currants, wood smoke, tobacco, and earth. With a rounded, concentrated, balanced style and building tannin, drink it anytime over the coming 15 years.

  4. Château La Pirouette

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#48187

    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Sep 2016
    The 2015 Château la Pirouette is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. This has a soft and clean bouquet with crushed strawberry and red cherry fruit, and iis made with French oak (300-liter from Damy). The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, very fresh in the mouth with fine cohesion and weight. This Bordeaux has tension and focus, and it should drink beautifully for several years.

  5. Château Lilian Ladouys Saint-Estèphe

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#49746

    JS93+93–94 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, April 4, 2017
    Firm and silky with a lovely depth of fruit and polished tannins. Some cedar and berry. Full and dense. Excellent length. Energetic acidity at end. Yes. Better than the super 2014. Best ever.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2019
    This is the third time I have tasted the 2016 Lilian Ladouys in bottle. It retains a very intense blackberry and boysenberry bouquet laced with minerals, but displays a little more amplitude than it did in August. The tightly knit palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and still shows the graphite seam that I remarked upon previously. There is a little more persistence now, hence the slightly higher score. Good potential.
    RP91+91–93 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Apr 2017
    The 2016 Lilian Ladouys is a blend of 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 62% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot picked between 3–17 October and matured in 30% new oak. It has a tightly wound bouquet with blackberry, wild hedgerow and graphite, plenty of fruit here with excellent delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with ebullient red berry fruit laced with white pepper and bay leaf, a touch of brown spice towards the generous finish. Very fine...this is a step up from the 2015.
    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2019
    Very lively, featuring a fun mix of cassis, plum paste and cherry preserve flavors, framed with floral and mineral notes. The light-handed toast lets the fruit shine through the finish, with persistent chalky minerality. Best from 2021 through 2031. 25,000 cases made.

  6. Château Gazin Rocquencourt Red

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#52123

    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2018
    Sexy and alluring, the 2015 Gazin Rocquencourt has much to offer. Best of all, the 2015 is going to be ready to drink with only minimal cellaring. Succulent black cherry, chocolate, espresso, savory herbs, licorice and smoke are all amped up by the natural richness of the year. Plush, supple and nuanced, with silky tannins and exceptional finesse, the 2015 Gazin is a stunner. Don’t miss it. Tasted three times.
    JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, February 2, 2018
    Complex aromas of blackberries, blueberries and sandalwood following through to a full body. Firm, chewy tannins that are polished and intense. A long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four year to soften. Try in 2022.
    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 21st Feb 2018
    The 2015 Gazin Rocquencourt is medium ruby-purple in color with a nose of black fruits, licorice and tar with wafts of tapenade and game. The medium to full-bodied mouth is firm and taut with muscular fruit and a long chewy finish.
