Chateau Pichon Lalande Pauillac 2009

96 James Suckling
95 Wine Advocate
(2/2012) "A beautiful effort, the 2009 Pichon Lalande, a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, possesses copious mocha, lead pencil, unsmoked, high class tobacco, black currant, forest floor and herbaceous characteristics. It is a deep purple-hued, charming, surprisingly open-knit Pauillac with wonderful freshness, a plump, fleshy mouthfeel, opulence and unctuosity, medium to full body and a well-delineated, luscious style. More elegant than its nearby neighbor, Pichon Longueville Baron, and not as massive in concentration and extract, it is one of the great Pichon Lalandes of the last twenty years."

Moet & Chandon "Grand Vintage" Rose Champagne 2009

94 Wine Spectator
(6/30/2018) "A firm, tightly meshed rose Champagne, with a powerful frame of smoky mineral and acidity swathed in a fine range of wild strawberry, whole-grain toast, kumquat and exotic spice notes that linger on the racy finish. Disgorged February 2017. Drink now through 2030."

(6/29/2016) "The lemon colored 2009 Blanc de Blancs is rounder than usual, due to the hot summer of 2009. Ripe and intense Chardonnay, with vanilla brioche flavors on the nose lead to an intense, but remarkably pure and fresh palate. It has load of minerality. Very intense and persistent in the finish, but still with great finesse."

94 Wine Advocate
95 Wine Spectator
(4/30/2012) "Redolent of blackberry and dark fruits, this also features a fascinating mix of mocha, graphite and tobacco flavors. Very juicy as well, which figures into the finish of fine-grained tannins and spice. An exuberant and refined Vintage Port. Best from 2020 through 2050."

Ettore Germano "Cerretta" Barolo 2009

94 Wine Advocate
92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
93 Wine Enthusiast
(9/1/2013) "Located in the village of Serralunga, this is an estate to watch. The firm's Cerretta Barolo has a classic fragrance of rose and violet, with earthy notes of truffle and mushroom. The palate delivers ripe, delicious black cherry, white pepper and licorice, and big but round tannins. Reflecting the forward nature of the vintage, it's enjoyable now but will improve over the next few years."

92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(3/2014) "Inky ruby. Deeply pitched dark fruit liqueur, olive and smoky Indian spice aromas are brightened by a zesty mineral quality. Palate-coating blackberry and blueberry flavors pick up an exotic floral nuance with air and are enlivened by juicy acidity. Finishes smooth, broad and long, with subtle vanilla and cola notes and strong mineral cut. There's lots going on here now but I'll bet that a few more years of patience will be rewarded." 92/100 - Wine Spectator. (2/2012) "A ripe, muscular, mouthfilling style, with loads of blackberry, fig and boysenberry pâte de fruit flavors backed by juicy briar, sweet spice and dark melted licorice snap notes. This has ample toast, but very solid fruit at the core. Best from 2013 through 2018. 500 cases made."

Bodegas Protos Gran Reserva Ribera del Duero 2009

Amazing closeout for half of the $95 reference price, it's easily the lowest price in the country!
93 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(12/2015) "(raised for two years in 80% French and 20% American oak, all new): Ruby-red. Pungent smoke- and spice-accented aromas of cherry, cassis and vanilla, with complicating notes of mocha and cured tobacco. Pliant, expansive dark berry liqueur and fruitcake flavors are accented by peppery spice and mineral qualities. Finishes sweet, seamless and very long, with excellent energy and focus and lingering smokiness. This is as impressive a wine as I have tasted from this bodega in a very long time, maybe ever. Drinking Window: 2020 - 2025."

La Torretta "Il Motto" Ghemme 2009

93 Our Score
(1/2019) The little-known region of Ghemme is capable of turning out some world-class Nebbiolo that can really give the wines of Barolo a run for their money. The 2009 "Il Motto" is La Torretta's current release - just imagine what a 10-year-old, cellar-aged wine of this quality would cost coming out of Napa! It is laden with secondary flavors that lay upon a subtle bed of fruit. After an hour in the decanter, beautiful aromas of dried cherry, macerated cranberry and dried fig begin to emerge, along with notes of wild mushroom, shaved truffle, tobacco, dried tea leaves, and dried red flower petals. Take a sip and this medium- to full-bodied red will flow across your palate with an exquisite balance of fresh acidity and chewy tannins. To say we were floored by this bottling would be a massive understatement. Powerful enough to stand up to a grilled rib-eye or rack of lamb, it also has the style and finesse to complement a plate of pasta with wild mushrooms or a truffle risotto. Tasted blind, it would be tough to believe this wine is not from Barolo.

Chateau Tour des Termes St. Estephe 2009

89 Wine Spectator
(3/2012) "A fresh, lively style, with a hint of anise on the edges of the sappy damson plum and cherry pit notes. A mix of currant and pomegranate are backed by briar on the finish. This should be a solid buy for mid-term cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2022. 8,500 cases made."

93 Wine Spectator
(10/31/2017) "Deftly combines a steely crispness with rich luxuriousness, offering notes of fresh ginger, cinnamon brioche, Meyer lemon and Asian pear that unfold on the long finish. Drink now through 2018."
