1982 Angélus, St-Emilion

Wine Spectator: "Medium-garnet in color, with a ruby center. Pretty floral, berry and dried cherry aromas. Medium-bodied, with tobacco and fruit flavors. (JS)" (11/1998) K&L Notes: A five star vintage, and "A great year for both Pomerol and St.Emilion," according to Decanter. Critics have noted that the 1982 Angélus, however, represents the château's earlier style, before changes in production were made in the mid-1980s.

1994 Angélus, St-Emilion

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Black-ruby. Sweet, expressive aromas of bitter cherry, cocoa powder and caramel. Very sweet and very concentrated, but fresh and nicely defined. Intriguing gamey nuance. Substantial even tannins coat the mouth, but are buried under explosive finishing fruit. This wine shows considerably more personality, not to mention depth of fruit flavor, than the '95. A superb '94, and one not to miss. (ST)" (05/1996) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In the new classification of St.-Emilion, justice ...

2009 L'Evangile, Pomerol

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An astonishing effort from the Rothschild family, the 2009 l’Evangile may be the reference point offering from this estate for decades to come. A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new oak, with 15% natural alcohol, it exhibits a sumptuous bouquet of caramels, black raspberry liqueur, blackberries, violets, graphite and truffles. Thick, viscous flavors are reminiscent of such super-ripe vintages as 1982, 1959, 1949 and 1947. The striking aromatics, massive, full-bodied mouthfeel and multilaye ...

2016 Trotanoy, Pomerol 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Decanter: "I was excited to retaste this wine after loving it so much at en primeur, and it has more than lived up to its promise. They seem to have poured layers of muscular black fruit into the glass in a display of Pauillac intensity and tannic prowess. It offers flavours of dark chocolate, cassis, liquorice root, black olive, coffee and cappuccino. The velvety texture is astonishing, and the layers of flavour are held together on a tightrope of power and freshness. At only 50% new oak, its intensity is coming from within. This needs to be ...

2016 Canon, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc and aged for 18 months in 70% new French barriques, the 2016 Canon is medium to deep garnet-purple in color, and--WOW--it opens with the most stunning perfume of violets, red roses and kirsch, giving way to a core of black cherry preserves, chocolate box, licorice, warm plums and Chinese five spice plus an earthy waft of underbrush.

1982 Certan de May, Pomerol (high shoulder fill)

97 points James Suckling: "Château Certan de May Pomerol 1982: This is a reminder of how great 1982 is for Pomerol.

It shows an amazing complexity and subtlety with wonderful aromas and flavors of flowers and berries. " (06/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The full bottle exhibited a dense plum/purple color along with notes of cedar, forest floor, sweet jammy plums, black currants, licorice, and toba ...

2018 Angélus, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

99-100 points James Suckling: "This shows beautiful sensibility of generous fruit and soft and velvety tannins with an undertone of chocolate and cedar. Full-bodied, pure and supple with a direct delivery of vibrant fruit and real terroir expression. Savory at the end with hazelnut and crunchy-seed flavors. Reality check here. Incredible fruit quality." (04/2019) 97-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'This year we have slightly less Cabernet Franc in the blend because we are only using the oldest vines, planted by my grandfather, as a tribute,' ...
