2009 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "After tasting it three times from bottle, I am convinced this prodigious wine is one of the greatest young Bordeaux I have ever tasted. Inky blue/purple with notes of camphor, forest floor, blackberry, cassis, sweet cherries, licorice, the wine has stunning aromatics, unctuous texture and an almost inky concentration, but without any hard edges. With considerable tannin and just enough acidity to provide definition, this wine transcends even its premier grand cru classe terroir. It is certainly the finest Clos F...

2009 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac
Top Pick!
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Talk about value, the 2009 Duhart-Milon is straight up sensational stuff. Made from 63% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot, it gives up classic notes of blackcurrants, pencil shavings, saddle leather and smoked herbs, it’s full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with fine tannin, impeccable balance and a great, great finish. It’s a heavenly bottle of wine that will compete with the best out there. Buy this wine!"

2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac
Top Pick!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An amazing wine in every sense, this classic, full-bodied Pauillac is the quintessential Pontet Canet from proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who continues to reduce yields and farms his vineyards biodynamically – a rarity in Bordeaux. Black as a moonless night, the 2009 Pontet Canet offers up notes of incense, graphite, smoke, licorice, creme de cassis and blackberries. A wine of irrefutable purity, laser-like precision, colossal weight and richness, and sensational freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking tha...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times since release, the 2009 Pontet Canet is one of those magical efforts that wine lovers encounter far too infrequently. From one of the greatest vintages for the region ever, this deep, saturated purple-colored effort offers an incredible bouquet of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, damp earth, and graphite. This gives way to a full-bodied, powerful Pauillac that carries a massive amount of sweet fruit yet stays light and beautifully balanced on the palate. Wi...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a big, tannic, midnight black Cabernet, rude in youth and barely drinkable. The tannins are powerful enough to lock down the palate. The grapes, grown in Calistoga, are very ripe in blackberries, currants and dark chocolate, but those tannins are stubbornly astringent. Almost old-fashioned in toughness despite very high alcohol, it’s a curiosity that seems likely to develop in the cellar, but with so little evidence of past vintages, all bets are off." (04/2012) Wine Spectator: "This offers a strong minty-anise edge ...

2009 Domaine Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Lavaux-St-Jacques"
New!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St. Jacques is a huge wine, but it is shutting down in bottle. The 2009 boasts incredible purity and depth in is fruit. Readers will need to be patient with the 2009. The extraordinary, deep finish is but one of the signs that points to the immense pedigree of Lavaux St. Jacques. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. (AG)" (04/2012) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Laced with plum, blackberry, toast and spice aromas and flavors, this is a polished and opulent red. It has a vibrant structu...

Full-bodied, rich and opulently fruited in the mouth, it has beautifully plush tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and very spicy.

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking at the 2009 Cumulus Vineyard #3, it is an interesting blend of 80% Syrah, 14% Grenache and 6% Roussanne that spent 30 months in 30% new French oak. Offering up lively black fruits, pepper and roasted meat-like aromas on the nose, it’s a total knockout on the palate and has layers of richness that stay perfectly focused. Seamless, layered and long, with sweet tannin, it will continue to thrill for 10-12 years. Drink now-2025. (JD)" (08/2013) 96 points Vinous: "The 2009 Next of Kyn - No. 3 comes across as...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate offers up tar, smoke, minerals, licorice and blackberry jam. Mocha, grilled herbs and spices emerge later, adding considerable complexity and nuance. All the aromas and flavors meld together nicely through to the focused finish. This overt, generous Cabernet should drink well for the next decade or so. The 2009 is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. (AG)" (12/2011) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This weaves a rich tapestry of mocha, dark ...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The greatest wines Chave has produced since 2003 are the two cuvees of 2009 Hermitage. The 2009 Hermitage exhibits a black/purple color along with a sumptuous nose of roasted meats, ground pepper, black currants, blackberry jam, and subtle smoke and licorice. The extraordinary bouquet is followed by a wine of extravagant intensity as well as tremendous focus and precision. While not as powerful as the blockbuster 2003, the amazing 2009 may turn out to be a modern day version of their magnificent 1990 (which is d...

The palate has a beautifully fresh, succulent and elegantly focused feel with a long sleeve of dried-cherry flavor and gently nutty notes to close. Dry, long and mouthwatering finish.

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A spicy, earthy and quite ripe nose features a variety of wild dark berry fruits that seem very much in keeping with the strikingly rich and full-bodied flavors that are supple yet serious with excellent volume, all wrapped in a powerful and balanced finish. This is terrific and should age well." (01/2011) 91-93 points Vinous: "(aging in 90% new oak) Good dark red. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, red cherry, dried flowers and tobacco.

2009 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

2009 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 d'Yquem bursts from the glass with gregarious crème caramel, allspice, dried apricots, mandarin peel and pineapple upside down cake scents plus a fragrant undercurrent of fungi, acacia honey, candied ginger, musk perfume and frangipani. Full-bodied and full-on hedonic in the mouth, the rich, tightly wound layers are still amazingly youthful with bags of citrus sparks and an incredibly long, perfumed finish. Possessing a residual sugar of 157 grams per liter and 13.6% alcohol...

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. Dark, brooding aromas of cassis, licorice, graphite and chocolate, lifted by a floral topnote. Lush, sweet and seamless, with excellent lift to its ripe black fruit and mineral flavors. Most impressive today on the very long, juicy back end, which features wonderful suave soft tannins for this site I underrated this wine from barrel last year. This superb wine is harmonious already but should really be cellared for at least a few years. (ST)" (05/2012) 91-93 points Robert Parker...

98 points Decanter: "This is opulent with fleshy tannins and spiced dark fruit, again showing a restrained core of tannins that was so obvious at the Bordeaux 10 Years On tasting in London a few weeks ago. It’s just a brilliant wine, one that will age effortlessly from here, and is still not quite ready to give up its secrets. It’s concentrated and confident and hard not to fall in love with. The vines for the grand vin come from the plateau opposite Latour and were the heart of the original Pichon estate. (JA)" (03/2019) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine...

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Musky, slightly high-toned aromas of lemon, lavender, hazelnut and white pepper, complicated by suggestions of earth and toast. Sappy and densely packed but youthfully imploded; less glyceral today than the Forest and Vaillons but boasts explosive minerality and outstanding inner-mouth lift. The chewy, extremely long finish perfumes the taste buds with citrus peel, flowers and spices. A superb and very ripe example of this grand cru. (ST)" (07/2011) 95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound...

2009 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
Top Pick!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel, this appears to be the finest Lynch Bages since the 2000, 1990 and 1989. According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a ...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Mouton-Rothschild is as concentrated as the 2010, but it presents itself in a more consumer-friendly, seductive style. Opulently textured and full-bodied with gorgeous levels of crème de cassis, melted licorice, espresso roast and chocolate, it possesses high but sweet, velvety tannins, massive body, and fabulous purity as well as length.

On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and absolute rock solid at the core, with a very racy chassis of acidity, laser-like focus and a brilliant, snappy and nearly endless finish.

Top Pick!
100 points Decanter: "As it opens in the glass, this is absolutely gorgeous. You can see why this was the period where people stopped and said, 'hang on, what's going on at Haut Bailly?' It's silky and a touch subdued, clearly a serious wine, with seductive, fleshy cassis, bilberry, hedgerow and bramble fruits alongside notes of leather, pencil lead and crushed stones, perfectly balanced by tantalisingly reticent tannins and acidity.

The summer of 2009 was very hot and dry, which got the harvest off to a reasonably early start. The blend was 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Jean Bernard Delmas’ goal was to find perfect equilibrium between freshness and concentration, given its incredible opulence and the voluptuous character this vintage offered. That’s what this wine has in...

This is a big, ripe, incredibly sexy wine that hits the palate with a huge texture, building, ripe tannin, no weight, and a finish that just won't quit. Utterly brilliant stuff, it's slightly more approachable than the 2005, but both of these vintages play in the same style. Drink bottles anytime over the coming two to three decades. Bravo!"

Dark fruit, spices, licorice and violets sit on a core of firm tannin as this powerful wine opens up in the glass. Today, The Thrill Of comes across as very, very young.
