Château Rieussec, 1er Grand Cru Classé, Sauternes 2010
"Impressive clarity on the nose, with fresh pineapple, grapefruit and a touch of lime flower, and tangible minerality. The palate has that "Tropicana" vibe with guava, almond and pineapple that slightly obfuscates the terroir towards the finish." – Robert Parker. 90 – 92 points.

Château Coutet, Barsac 2010
"Endowed with a delightful bouquet of freshly sliced mango, Tropicana and a touch of honey, with good definition and minerality. The palate is medium-bodied with very impressive balance and poise, and is slightly viscous in the mouth, with almond, lemon curd and a touch of orange peel. The finish is composed and long." – Robert Parker. 93 – 95 points.

Château Les Ormes de Pez 2010
Superb effort from one of the best Cru Bourgeois' in St-Estèphe.
"A wine with lots of flesh and chewy tannins. Full and round, with a lovely texture and finish. Long. These guys are on a roll here. Cazes family of Lynch-Bages. 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot." – James Suckling. 92 – 93 points.

Grand Corbin d'Espagne, St-Emilion Grand Cru Classé 2009
"A powerful, inky/purple color is followed by notes of graphite, crushed rocks, incense, blueberries, and blackberries. The flavors are concentrated, pure, dense, thick, and unctuous with plenty of tannin lurking under the surface. It should evolve for 15 or more years." – Robert Parker. 89 points.
Drink 2014 - 2030
La Goulée, Médoc 2010
"This offering from the owners of Cos d'Estournel is a high quality, impeccably well-made Bordeaux displaying a dark ruby/purple hue along with notes of chocolate, black currants, herbs and spice. Opulent, round and full-bodied" Robert Parker. 90 – 92 points.

Château Potensac, Médoc 2009
In our view, one of the best value wines of the vintage. "A sleeper of the vintage not to be missed" Robert Parker
"This is one of the fruitiest Potensacs that I remember, with loads of blueberry and currants. Full and velvety. Plenty going on underneath."James Suckling, 91 - 92 points
Drink 2014 - 2022
Château La Tour Carnet, 4ème Cru Classé, Haut Médoc 2009
"This concentrated, impressively endowed wine is silky-textured and already accessible. However, I suspect its best days are at least 5-7 years ahead of it. It should keep for a minimum of two decades." Robert Parker, 92 Points
Drink 2016 - 2037
Château Teyssier, St-Emilion Grand Cru 2010-
"An over-achieving estate for a number of years now, this dense purple wine exhibits oodles of creme de cassis and licorice, hints of subtle barbecue smoke and toast, terrific texture and a long, succulent, fleshy finish." – Robert Parker. 92 points.

Château Peyrabon, Haut-Médoc 2009

Drink 2014 - 2018
Château Haut Batailley, Pauillac 2009
"A delicate, finesse-styled wine exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color as well as plenty of sweet black cherry, mulberry and wild mountain berry fruit intermixed with notes of foresty underbrush. Medium-bodied with good purity, sweet tannin and a forward, almost St.-Julien-like personality." – Robert Parker. 89 points.
Drink 2014 - 2027
Château Marquis de Terme, Margaux 2009
"A ripe, woodsy wine with plenty of forest floor, black currant, cherry and dusty, loamy soil notes, this wine is showing quite well, with medium to full-bodied, silky tannins and a long finish. It should certainly last for 20+ years." – Robert Parker. 89 points.
