2012 Le Clarence de Haut Brion Pessac Leognan (Futures)
Reviewed by: Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - 88 to 90 pts
"Offers plum, mixed berry and singed vanilla notes against a backdrop of anise and tar. Displays a sinewy edge on the finish, but the stuffing is there for development."
2012 Clos Marsalette Pessac Leognan (Futures)
Reviewed by: Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - 90 to 92 pts
"A bright tobacco leaf and savory note up front is followed by sleek black cherry, plum and blackberry fruit that has melded nicely. Long, alder-tinged finish has lovely minerality. Distinctive."
2012 Chateau Haut Bergey Pessac Leognan (Futures)
-Reviewed by: Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - 90 to 93 pts
"Showy style, with lots of ganache and dark toast leading the way, backed by ample plum sauce, fig paste and currant confiture notes. Long, charcoal-framed finish has plenty of heft. Not shy in style, this has density and drive."
2012 Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion (Futures)
2005 Chateau Haut Bailly
2012 Chateau Reynon Pessac Leognan (Futures)
2009 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Pessac Leognan
"Clean. Blackberry and lightly toasted oak with coffee and cedar. Full-bodied and a very, very powerful structure. Blockbuster. Massive and dense, yet remains agile. A triumph for this estate." -Wine Spectator, 95-98 pts.
2006 Chateau Haut Bailly
2005 Chateau Malartic Lagraviere
"Perhaps the strongest wine I have ever tasted from Malartic Lagravière, the 2005 has a dense ruby/purple color and a wonderfully sweet nose of crème de cassis, graphite, and soil undertones. Medium-bodied., smoky, with classic scorched earth, Graves-like aromatics and flavors, this wine displays impeccable winemaking, with pure fruit, medium body, and gorgeously long, rich flavors and moderate levels of tannin."
