2012 Château Marjosse Bordeaux Blanc 2010 Château Pibran Pauillac

Ripe and well-packed, but silky and racy too, with linzer torte, cassis and blackberry notes pumping along, flecked with singed anise and violet, showing a long graphite spine on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2030. Rated 92. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

A major sleeper of the vintage, this under-the-radar Pauillac from the owners of Pichon Longueville Baron comes from a 42-acre vineyard, and the blend is divided equally between two grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Classic smoky barbecue notes intermixed with cassis, forest floor and cedar jump from the glass of this dense purple, thick, unctuously textured, rich and heady wine, which can be drunk in 3-4 years. Moreover, it should last for up to two decades. This is normally not too expensive a wine, since consumers do not follow it closely, so readers should take note. Drink: 2016-2036. Rated 90. - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate Issue 205, February 2013

2012 Château Marjosse Bordeaux Blanc 2012 Château Marjosse Bordeaux Blanc

2009 Clos du Marquis Saint-Julien
Now positioned as a totally separate vineyard and a real clos (enclosed walled vineyard), this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot from Jean-Hubert Delon is a beauty. Creme de cassis notes intermixed with some vanillin, crushed rock and spring flowers jump from the glass. Full-bodied and powerful (nearly 14% natural alcohol), this is a generously endowed, rich wine that was first made in 1902. The 2009 should drink well for 20-25 years. Readers need to think of it as a true classified growth, although technically it is not. Rated 93. ‑ Robert M. Parker, Jr.'s The Wine Advocate Issue 199, February, 2012

2010 Château Sénéjac Haut-Médoc
Another sleeper of the vintage, Senejac’s 2010 (a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc with a touch of Petit Verdot) exhibits wonderful intensity, an opaque purple color, and opulent blackberry and blueberry fruit along with hints of charcoal, white chocolate and graphite. This lush, heady, rich wine is a considerable over-achiever from this property in the northern Medoc that can be drunk over the next 6-8 years. Rated 89. ‑ Robert M. Parker, Jr.'s The Wine Advocate Issue 205, February 2013

2011 Château Bellevue-Claribes Bordeaux
Produce of half each Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot fruit from vines an average of 40 years old planted to 8 hectares of clay limestone soils near Gensac in the Dordogne, southeast of Saint-Émilion; this is a gentle nod to a modern take on classic Claret with aromas suggestive of fleshy ripe berries and hints of cassis, leather and dusty loamy soil; ripe and well-rounded on the tongue, of medium weight with gentle broad tannins and a long crisp flavorful finish; and considering the very attractive price, this is surely a yeoman's job on a workingman's Claret.
