2018 Château Meyney Saint-Estèphe

2018 Château Meyney Saint-Estèphe

The 2018 Meyney is every bit as impressive as it was en primeur. Technical Director Anne Le Naour has done a terrific job in reining in some of the excess weight and power of previous vintages, but without sacrificing richness. Classy and layered, Meyney boasts fabulous depth and tons of character. Ripe red/purplish fruit, spice, blood orange, smoke and incense are some of the many aromas and flavors that mesh together. The 2018 offers striking immediacy, but also has enough structure to develop well in bottle for 15-20 years, maybe more. The 2018 Meyney is a wine of immense pleasure. Best of all, it is a tremendous value. Drink 2023-2043. Rated 93. - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com March, 2021

2016 Château Prieuré-Lichine Margaux

2016 Château Prieuré-Lichine Margaux

The 2016 Prieuré-Lichine is all class. Floral, silky and nuanced to the core, the 2016 is a wine of pure and total seduction. Freshly cut flowers, vibrant red fruit and creamy tannins all add to the wine's undeniable allure. In 2016, Prieuré-Lichine is all class, not to mention one of the sleepers of the vintage. Don't miss it! Tasted two times. Drink 2022-2041. Rated 96. - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com January, 2019

2016 Château Corbin Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé

2016 Château Corbin Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé

The 2016 Corbin is a gorgeous, supple Saint-Émilion that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Floral notes add brightness and energy to a core of red cherry and plum fruit. Hints of chocolate, leather and menthol shape the persistent, substantial finish. A racy wine with no hard edges and tons of pure harmony, the 2016 is simply impeccable today. Tasted two times. Drink 2018-2028. Rated 93. - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com January, 2019

2015 Château Corbin Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé

2015 Château Corbin Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé

A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged for 18 months in barrels, 40% new, the 2015 Corbin is medium garnet-purple colored with cigar box and spice box notions accenting the core of red and black plums, blackberry preserves and earthy layers plus a hint of lavender. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, elegant and well balanced with grainy tannins, finishing lively and long. Drink 2020-2037. Rated 92. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate February 21, 2018.

2016 Château Chapelle d'Aliénor Bordeaux Supérieur Rouge

2016 Château Chapelle d'Aliénor Bordeaux Supérieur Rouge

Produce of mostly Merlot with a good dollop of Cabernet Franc and just a skosh of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit grown in vineyards over the hills but not far away from Saint-Émilion. The property has been owned since 2001 by la famille Malet-Roquefort of Château La Gaffelière Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé. Chapelle d'Aliénor represents what is possible by way of merely bon vin de Bordeaux, hinting at the greatness of the category of the finest red Bordeaux, but not at all involving a call to one's banker when considering investing in a case. While the opulent and sun-drenched 2015 vintage was our introduction to this wine, the comparatively more fresh and vibrant 2016 is now on the scene and a delicious follow-on. Deep ruby in color with aromas of fleshy Merlot fruit holding sway, suggesting dark ripe bing cherry, spiced plum, shaved dark chocolate, toasted baguette and a hint of the dusty dry vineyard floor; supple and polished on entry, with gentle intensity of flavor that rings true to the promise of the aromas with emerging ripe round crisp tannins lending a freshness, mouthwateringness and gentle energy that so invite another pull.

$14.99 the bottle  $152.88 the case



2016 Château Croix de Mai Médoc

2016 Château Croix de Mai Médoc

Produce of 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec and Petit Verdot vines averaging 55 years in age and grown on gravel soils over a rare left bank outcropping of limestone near the town of Bégadan north of Lesparre on the Médoc peninsula. Deep ruby at the core to garnet at the edges in color; classic, if ripe, claret aromas of fleshy berry and graphite with a hint of toasted baguette after some aeration; velvety in texture, engaging on the palate with a certain potency and vigor, then gently structured with ripe polished tannins that hold it all together and long on the finish. Impressive effort from the far reaches of the northern Médoc.

2018 Château Le Rey Les Argileuses parcelles № 1 et 3 Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

2018 Château Le Rey Les Argileuses Parcelles № 1 et 3 Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

Château Le Rey Les Argileuses is produce of the fruit of 12 hectares of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc vines planted to particular parcels of vineyard with soils of green and blue clay over asteriated limestone, similar to nearby Saint-Émilion. The wine is aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks without the use of any oak in the winemaking process. Full deep ruby to just fuchsia at the edges in color; full, fermentive, wild, alluring aromas suggestive of a mélange of dark berries, ripe blue plum and fine baking spices (Château Le Rey themselves suggest nuance of réglisse, as well); supple on entry then offering a nice burst of berryish fruit and a mouthwatering almost crunchy acidity, staying fresh and causing salivation long on the mid-palate with those same berry flavors showing surprising length, then building in body, showing an ampleness, a fullness and stony intensity of flavor demonstrating the solid (but semi-porous) underpinnings of the Castillon limestone soils.

$17.50 the bottle  $178.56 the case



2018 Château German Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

2018 Château German Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

Produce of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc fruit from sustainably-farmed vines averaging 35 to 40 years in age and planted to sandy subsoils on a base of iron and clay near Saint Magne de Castillon within the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. Medium ruby in color with aromas suggestive of plum and spice, blueberry, blackberry and a good winegrowing earth; supple, almost slippery on entry, gentle on the tongue but not lacking in spine; well-rounded with a warm and generous palate feel and gentle well-rounded tannins stretching the flavors out long on the finish; this has what our winebuyer likes to call 'wineyness' (it sounds much better in French — vinosité) and, at its right reasonable price, this is right bank Bordeaux for the rest of us.

$11.99 the bottle  $122.28 the case



2019 Bordeaux Blanc Sec Blanc Sec de Suduiraut

2019 Bordeaux Blanc Sec Blanc Sec de Suduiraut

A blend of 52% Semillon and 48% Sauvignon Blanc from fine gravel and sandy soils of Château Suduiraut in Sauternes, some 40 km to the southeast of the city of Bordeaux. To be sure, this is a wine from Sauternes, but one fermented to complete dryness and to be enjoyed immediately for its freshness and vibrancy. Bright yellow gold with glints of green in color; aromas of citrus peel, sweet citrus flower, fresh cool melon and eventually green fig and cool mint; slippery smooth on the tongue, caressing in texture with delicate flavors that fully deliver on the promise of the aromatics.

$19.99 the bottle  $101.94 the case of 6



2017 Château Carbonnieux Graves Péssac-Léognan Blanc

2017 Château Carbonnieux Graves Pessac-Léognan Blanc

The 2017 Carbonnieux Blanc is absolutely lovely. Lemon confit, white flowers and green orchard fruit open up first, followed by a range of bright citrus and floral notes that add brilliance to a very pretty upper register. Drink 2020-2027. Rated 91. - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com March, 2020

The 2017 Carbonnieux Blanc has a very harmonious bouquet with scents of lime, white flowers, melon and grapefruit that gradually unfold with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a little more weight and persistence than the Deuxième Vin, though truth is that there is not an enormous qualitative difference between the two. But here I appreciate the salinity on the finish and I suspect it will age with style. Drink 2022-2038. Rated 92. - Neal Martin, vinous.com February, 2020

2020 Bordeaux En Primeur
2020 Bordeaux En Primeur

The vintage of 2020 is causing a stir in Bordeaux wine-loving circles, not least of the reasons why is that it is the second sequence of high-quality eight, nine and aught vintages running, even harkening back to the splendid trio of the 1988, 1989 and 1990 vintages, also known as «les trois glorieueses». As is most always the case here, we will offer the wines on a reservations basis, which is to say, we don't require you to pay up front — you make your reservation(s) now but hang onto your cash, making payment and then taking delivery just following the wines' expected arrival here in the spring of 2023 or thereabouts. Please just give us a call at (512) 499‑0512 or send us an e-Mail message with questions, comments, orders. Click here or on the images above to see the complete offering.
