Chateau Clos Fourtet St.-Emilion 2009

100 Wine Advocate
(2/2012) "After tasting it three times from bottle, I am convinced this prodigious wine is one of the greatest young Bordeaux I have ever tasted. Inky blue/purple with notes of camphor, forest floor, blackberry, cassis, sweet cherries, licorice, the wine has stunning aromatics, unctuous texture and an almost inky concentration, but without any hard edges. With considerable tannin and just enough acidity to provide definition, this wine transcends even its premier grand cru classe terroir. It is certainly the finest Clos Fourtet ever produced. Give it 5-7 years of cellaring to allow some of its baby fat to fall away. There is certainly enough structure underneath to keep for 30-50 years. Bravo!"

Chateau Bellevue Mondotte St. Emillion 2006

95+ Wine Advocate
(2/2009) "This tiny, 5-acre vineyard with nearly 50-year old vines produces only 4,000 bottles from a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The broodingly tannic, backward 2006 is remarkably concentrated, pure, and deep. It is an amazing tour de force in winemaking, but like nearly all the Perse 2006s, it is a massively built vin de garde with no compromises meant for serious connoisseurs and long-term cellaring. Forget it for 7-8 years, and drink it over the following 25-30."

Chateau Troplong Mondot St. Emillion 2012

(4/2015) "The 2012 is another truly great wine from Troplong Mondot. It's always sentimental to taste this wine, realizing that proprietress Christine Valette (the larger-than-life heart and soul behind this estate) has passed away. She was one of the bright, shining stars of Bordeaux. Nevertheless, her legacy is certainly well-established, and the quality of this wine is beyond reproach. Inky bluish purple, its great notes of cassis, blackberry, licorice are followed by a full-bodied, opulently textured wine with stunning concentration, purity and overall balance. It should drink well for 20-25 years and turn out to be one of the great superstars of 2012. Their 63-acre vineyard was cropped at 31 hectoliters per hectare, producing a final blend of 90% Merlot and 10 Cabernet Sauvignon that achieved 14.2% alcohol."

Chateau Louis St.-Emilion 2010

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $55.99!
92 Wine Advocate
(2/2013) "From the proprietors of the famous Paris bistro founded in 1924, L'Ami Louis, Chateau Louis is the renamed estate formerly called Rol de Fombrauge, purchased in 2006 by the late Thierry de La Brosse. It is a tiny estate of just over 10 acres, with vines averaging just over 45 years. The yields in 2010 were virtually nothing - a mere 12 hectoliters per hectare. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc this big, powerful, full-bodied, rich wine in many ways reflects the generous cuisine of this famous bistro. Full-bodied, with a dense opaque/purple color and notes of creosote, truffle, blackberry and black raspberry, the wine also has a floral note and hints of crushed rock, giving it a certain minerality. The precision of the 2010 is there because of good acidity. Forget this dense, back-strapping, intense wine for 4-5 years and drink it over the following two decades. It tips the scales at 14.7% natural alcohol."

Chateau Corbin St Emilion 2005

92 Wine Spectator
(3/31/2008) "Dark purple in color, showing very powerful aromas of crushed blackberry and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky, extracted tannins and lots of extraction overall, but there's still so much going on. This is big and juicy. Best after 2015. 4,415 cases made."

Chateau Rol Valentin St.-Emilion 2012

Just arrived, direct from our negociant in Bordeaux!
92 James Suckling
92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
"The 2012 Rol Valentin is powerful, rich and inviting, with its characteristic richness and seamless texture on full display. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco shape the voluptuous, creamy finish. The 2012 is quite expressive today, but it will be even better in another year or two, once the elements have had a bit more time to fuse together. The creamy, open-knit finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. This striking, modern Saint Emilion from Rol Valentin and consulting winemaker Julien Lavenu is one of the sleepers of the vintage. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Drinking window: 2017 - 2032."

Chateau La Dominique St Emilion 2012

94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(1/2016) "Above all else, the 2012 La Dominique speaks to precision. Beautifully expressive in the glass, the 2012 offers a compelling mélange of plum, lavender, mint, licorice and purplish fruits. Sweet floral and spiced notes add yet another dimension on the deep, pure finish. There is so much to like here. The 2012 is 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Michel Rolland and Jean-Philippe Fort consult."

Chateau Villemaurine St. Emilion 2012

(3/28/2015) "Twenty years ago, this used to be one of my candidates for the worst wine from a top terroir in St.-Emilion. Things have changed incredibly since the acquisition of this property by Justin Onclin. The terroir is fabulously situated just adjacent to the walls of this medieval village, and the wine has gone from strength-to-strength. The 2012 has a dense purple color, a rocky and chalky minerality, medium to full body, and is long, rich and intense, elegant yet noble. Consumers have to be pleased that this long-time underachiever has finally raised its game under the new ownership. This is a property to seek out in St.-Emilion. Drink this 2012 over the next 15-20 years."

Chateau Haut-Segottes Grand Cru Saint Emilion 2011

91 Our Score
(5/2016) This powerful St. Emilion has just the right amount of bottle age to start really showing its stuff, and we're thrilled to be able to offer this to you at the lowest price in the country! The fruits are rich and dense, while the tannins are soft but still offer excellent grip. Enjoy this with a perfectly prepared Filet Mignon with sauteed mushrooms. Delicious!

Chateau Barde Haut St. Emilion 2012

A voluptuous, triple 92-point Bordeaux for under $30? Yep!
92 Wine Spectator
92 James Suckling
92+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(1/2016) "The 2012 Barde-Haut is dark, fleshy and voluptuous, with notable depth and resonance from the Merlot. Mocha, bittersweet chocolate, plums and spices all add nuance, but above all else, the 2012 is a wine of spherical texture and intensity. Give it a few years to fully unwind. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, aged in 300-liter barrels, 80% of them new."
