2000 Chateau Angelus St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 22811 | Available
99 WA

Approaching perfection, this wine is inky, bluish/purple-colored to the rim, offering up notes of incense, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, licorice, graphite and spring flowers. A touch of roasted espresso bean is also present. The wine has great concen...


2003 Chateau Bellevue Mondotte St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 31060 | 12 Available
94+ WA

Even in a vintage such as 2003 there are wines that are youthful, unevolved and still in need of bottle age. The 2003 Bellevue Mondotte is one of those wines. From a tiny (5 acres) estate owned by Gerard Perse, this blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc ...


2000 Chateau Branaire Ducru - St. Julien

750ml | SKU 22625 | Available
94 WA

A beautiful wine from Branaire, the 2000 is close to full maturity, and should offer plenty of pleasure over the next 15-20 years. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by scents of boysenberries, black currants, and spring flowers. This medium to full-...


2000 Chateau Branon Pessac

750ml | SKU 22872 | Available
97 WA

Everyone at the tasting where this wine was presented was rocked (or should I say shocked) by the greatness of this wine. It needs no defense. I rated it 96 seven years ago, and it comes from a beautiful vineyard in Pessac-Leognan near Haut-Bergey. Made b...


2000 Chateau Calon Segur - St. Estephe

750ml | SKU 22623 | Available
94 WA

Performing as I expected, but still several years away from full maturity, this extraordinarily flamboyant, full-bodied, opulent, sexy St. Estephe stood out for its backward structure and youthful personality. A dark plum/garnet hue is followed by a super...


2000 Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 22853 | 11 Available
95 WA

This is a triumphant 2000, flamboyant, super-concentrated, yet classic in proportions. Lavish notes of roasted espresso, melted chocolate, creme de cassis, toasty new oak, and Asian spices jump from the glass of this sensationally perfumed, rather ostenta...


2000 Chateau Clinet Pomerol

750ml | SKU 22928 | Available
93 WA

Beautiful aromas of plums, soy, black currants, black raspberries, espresso, and spring flowers jump from the glass of this perfumed, dense plum/ruby/purple-tinged Pomerol. Medium to full-bodied and pure with sweet tannin and impressive extract, it will b...


2003 Chateau Clos Fourtet - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 30907 | Available
98 WA

This magnificent wine, which is just beginning to come into full maturity, boasts an inky/purple color as well as copious notes of blackberries, licorice, violets, and a striking chalky minerality. Full-bodied, voluptuously textured and stunningly pure, t...


2003 Chateau Cos d'Estournel - St. Estephe

750ml | SKU 31096 | Available
97 WA

Two terrific efforts from this vintage, the 2003 Cos d’Estournel (70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) remains one of the superstars of the vintage. It offers an opaque ruby/purple hue as well as notes of incens...


2000 Chateau Cos d'Estournel - St. Estephe

750ml | SKU 22851 | Available
97 WA

Blended of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2000 Cos d'Estournel is deep garnet in color with a touch of brick and sporting a lot of tertiary evolution on the nose. It leaps from the glass with opulent sandalwood, Chinese five...


2000 Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou - St. Julien

750ml | SKU 22796 | Available
95 WA

A stunning wine from Ducru Beaucaillou which showcases its great terroir, this elegant but substantial 2000 has a dense purple color that has hardly budged since it was first bottled. Displaying a floral note, with hints of boysenberries, black raspberrie...


2000 Chateau Figeac - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 21840 | 12 Available
93 JD

The 2000 Château Figeac is now fully mature and at point, yet has plenty of life ahead, showing almost no signs of bricking in color at the edge. It's an incredibly complex, nuanced example of Figeac that shines more for its complexity than power. Beautif...


1996 Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste - Pauillac

750ml | SKU 13266 | Available
93 WA

This is unquestionably a profound Grand-Puy-Lacoste, but it is excruciatingly backward. It reveals an essence of creme de cassis character which sets it apart from other Pauillacs. The wine is displaying plenty of tannin, huge body, and sweet black curran...


1998 Chateau Haut Brion - Pessac

750ml | SKU 16031 | Available
99 WA

Still incredibly youthful and sporting a lot of fruit, the deep garnet-brick colored 1998 Haut-Brion sashays out of the glass with flamboyant red and black fruits, followed by a train of cassis, blueberry pie and chocolate box notions plus accents of iron...


2000 Chateau La Clussiere St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 22932 | 10 Available
100 WA

Now extinct, as this tiny 2.6-acre micro-vineyard was absorbed into Chateau Pavie, the 2000 La Clusiere (100% Merlot) was bestowed a perfect score seven years ago, and I see no reason to change that as it remains a monumental effort. Aromas of creme de ca...


2000 Chateau La Conseillante - Pomerol

750ml | SKU 22742 | Available
96 WA

La Conseillante made an excellent wine in 2001, another great one in 2005, and the estate hit home runs in both 2008 and, above all, in 2009. In fact, the latter vintage may well end up being the modern-day reference point for La Conseillante. Nevertheles...


2000 Chateau La Couspaude St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 22446 | Available
92 WA

This is a lavishly fruity, toasty, seductive wine with no hard edges. It possesses terrific fat and a sweet, opulent, multi-layered style. Possessing a dense ruby/purple color along with copious quantities of black cherry liqueur, espresso, mineral, oak, ...


2000 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion - Pessac

750ml | SKU 22871 | Available
100 WA

One of the wines of the vintage, the 2000 has barely budged in its evolution since it was bottled and released in 2002. After ten years in bottle, it still reveals a dense opaque purple color along with a potentially sensational bouquet of blueberries, bl...
