Lafleur

75 IB 7 0 2950 -
Tasting Notes for Lafleur, 2008:
The 2008 Lafleur, a blend of 54% Cabernet Franc and 46% Merlot, offers extraordinarily pure notes of raspberries, kirsch, flowers, and subtle forest floor nuances. A wine of exceptional purity and full-bodied intensity that remains light on its feet because of its fresh acids and lower pH, it represents a denser, more complete version of the 1988 and 1996. Built for the long haul, purchasers will need at least a decade of patience before pulling a cork. It should keep for 40-50 years thereafter. The tiny Lafleur vineyard, which was harvested between October 8-14, produced a wine with an atypically high percentage of Cabernet Franc. Proprietor Guinadeau stated that the Cabernet Franc was among the finest he had ever harvested. Robert Parker Wine Advocate April 2009

Haut Bages Liberal

75 DP 0 6 - 25
Tasting Notes for Haut Bages Liberal, 2006:
The 1995 possesses a bit more depth and intensity than the 1996, but it is also lean and austere. The attractive saturated ruby/purple color suggests plenty of intensity, which is evident on the attack, but, again, the mid-palate is deficient in fruit, glycerin, and concentration, and the finish is dry, with a high level of tannin. This wine may soften with more bottle age and become better than my rating suggests. Let's hope so. Wine Advocate # 115 Feb 1998

Le Petit Mouton

75 DP 1 0 2004 -
Tasting Notes for Le Petit Mouton, 2005:
An excellent second wine, the 2005 Le Petit Mouton exhibits soft, lush, subtle herb-infused black currant fruit along with notions of licorice, smoke, and burning embers. Enjoy this well-made effort over the next 7-8 years. Wine Advocate # 176 Apr 2008

2005

Palmer

75 IB 1 0 2400 -
Tasting Notes for Palmer, 2005:
Produced from a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot (only 50% of the total crop was used), the 2005 Palmer boasts an amazing 14% natural alcohol. New administrator Thomas Duroux (formerly of Ornellaia in Tuscany) has fashioned a true classic. Creme de cassis, camphor, earth, licorice, and spicy oak characteristics emerge from this sensationally rich, full-bodied Margaux. With terrific texture, awesome intensity, high but sweet tannin, and refreshing, well-integrated acidity, this wine will be at its finest between 2015-2050+. The Wine Advocate #170 Apr-07.

Batailley

75 DP 0 6 - 29
Tasting Notes for Batailley, 2004:
A sleeper of the vintage, BatailleyŇs complex 2004 is redolent with notes of cedar wood, spice box, plums, cassis, tar, and smoke. Medium to full-bodied, supple textured, layered, rich, and long, it marks the renaissance of this fifth-growth Pauillac that is displaying strong signs of moving into the big leagues.

Latour

75 DP 0 6 - 335
Tasting Notes for Latour, 2004:
A terrific effort from Administrator Frederic Engerer and owner Francois Pinault, the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Latour exhibits a strong cassis character intermixed with notes of crushed rocks, earth, cedar, and forest floor. Racy, elegant, but powerful with medium to full body, and sweet tannin, it will benefit from 5-7 years of cellaring, and should keep for three decades. It is a very impressive offering. Also tasted: 2004 Pauillac (87; $38.00) The Wine Advocate #171 Jun-07.

Latour

75 DP 1 0 4200 -
Tasting Notes for Latour, 1999:
Readers looking for a modern day version of Latour's magnificent 1962 or 1971 should check out the sensational 1999 Latour. It is a big, concentrated offering, exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color, and a classic nose of minerals, black currants, leather, and vanilla. The wine is long, ripe, and medium-bodied, with high levels of sweet tannin. This surprisingly full, concentrated 1999 should be drinkable in 5-6 years; it will last for three decades.

1989

Beychevelle

75 DP 0 6 - 78
Tasting Notes for Beychevelle, 1989:
Both the 1989 and 1990 wines scored slightly lower than in previous tastings. In contrast to the 1990, the 1989 Beychevelle, which usually performs better than it did in the recent tasting, is an elegant, medium-bodied wine with soft tannin, copious quantities of ripe, herb-tinged, blackcurrant fruit, some evidence of toasty oak, and a generous, velvety-textured finish. It appears to be evolving quickly, and can be drunk now as well as over the next 15 years. Robert Parker Wine Advocate

1970

Margaux

75 DP 0 4 - 175
Tasting Notes for Margaux, 1970:
The 1970 is better than the 1971 or 1975, but certainly exceeded in quality by most of the classified growths of the Medoc, not to mention a good number of Crus Bourgeois. This is certainly the type of wine to foster consumer ill-will toward expensive, presumably ``great'' first-growth Bordeaux. Compact, austere, lacking fruit and richness, this wine has adequate color and tannins, but not much flesh to cover the bones. Time may help, but then again, it may not. Anticipated maturity: Now-may be in decline. Last tasted, 9/83. Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1 Jan 1998

Clos St Denis - Dujac

75 IB 0 1 - 575
Tasting Notes for Clos St Denis - Dujac, 2005:
DujacŇs 2005 Bonnes Mares smells of black raspberry, wood smoke, sage and horehound. Intense, tart but ripe black raspberry fills the mouth with vivid juiciness, backed by persistently pungent herbal concentrates, bitter chocolate, and saline minerality. Abundant but refined tannins allied to energetic fruit of untamed intensity combine in a long finish and seem to assure that this is another Dujac cru with superb aging potential. The already rich array of crus at Domaine Dujac has recently been augmented on two fronts. The purchase (along with de Montille) of the Societe Civile du Clos de Thorey (Thomas-Moillard) has brought them a raft of choice parcels including three new grand cru holdings (for a staggering total of eight). Meanwhile, they have expanded their negociant arm (with control over harvest and green harvest a prerequisite) to supplement in particular their volumes of village-level wine. (Those wines Đ labeled ┘Dujac Fils & Pere╬ Đ are signified in the above listing with ┘FP╬. In fact, due to a legal technicality, the 2005 vintage wines from the properties newly acquired by the domaine Đ but not subsequent vintages Đ will also read ┘Fils & Pere╬ rather than ┘Domaine╬.) Even with California-trained oenologist Diana Seysses (nee Snowden) joining her husband Jeremy and in-laws Jacques and Alec, and with a new winery (though at the old address) I wonder at how they are able to keep up with the magnitude of their responsibilities. Yet despite so many parcels and vines new to them this year, the results are consistently outstanding and at times astounding. Much of the vinification Đ increasingly as one goes up the hierarchy of crus Đ was of whole clusters. Malos finished (finally) by November and the wines were bottle in December and January.
