Château Doisy-Vedrines 2010
Barsac AOC 2ième Cru Classé

12 HALF bottles (375ml) $209.99
Item No. 05760EP SOLD OUT

Robert Parker

91-93 points

"The Doisy-Vedrines has a refined bouquet of lemon curd, dried honey and just a touch of quince, perhaps not quite as rich as recent vintages, but very well-defined. The palate is well-balanced, with a touch of lime cordial and passion fruit on the entry, and zesty acidity and impressive precision towards the taut, slightly spicy rich finish. Returning after an hour, this sample has enhanced clarity and volume, and subsequent encounters confirm a very promising Doisy-Vedrines."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

92-95 points

"Thick and spicy, with unctuous, still slightly raw-seeming layers of apricot, peach and fig. Ginger cream and green tea check in on the finish. Rather backward still, but there's lots balled up."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

18 points

"Big body, rich texture, built for long ageing, with a completely different style from Daëne: less immediate purity, more power. Two different visions of terroir but nobody would complain to try both. Drink 2020-2040."
— Decanter

Château Sénéjac 2010
Haut-Médoc AOC Cru Bourgeois

12 bottles (with wooden case) $219.99
Item No. 05753EP SOLD OUT

Robert Parker

87-90 points

"Pontet-Canet's brilliant proprietor, Alfred Tesseron, has begun to look after the wines of Sénéjac and the result is a tasty, elegant 2010 offering copious berry fruit notes intermixed with hints of cedarwood and spice. This cuvée should be drinkable upon release and evolve for a decade."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

89-92 points

"Still compact, with a very briary, juicy core of plum, dark currant and braised fig, followed by a roasted tobacco edge on the finish. Offers lively acidity. Should unwind nicely."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

16.5 points

"Deep, compact yet complex flavours, a very elegant southern Haut-Médoc with a good future. Drink 2014-22."
— Decanter

Château Lanessan 2010
Haut-Médoc AOC Cru Bourgeois

12 bottles (with wooden case) $229.99
Item No. 05754EP Call 1-800-267-0548

Robert Parker

87-89+ points

"Attractive notes of cedarwood, unsmoked cigar tobacco, red and black currants and loamy soil characterize this surprisingly soft, round, medium-bodied Lanessan. Although not the superstar value it can be in certain vintages, it is still a very good Médoc that should evolve nicely for 10-15 years given its tannic structure."
— Robert Parker

Decanter

16 points

"Quite firm, smoky cassis fruit, fine middle depth and elegant structure. Drink 2014-20."
Decanter

Château Chantalouette 2010
Pomerol AOC

12 bottles (with wooden case) $299.99
Item No. 05759EP Call 1-800-267-0548

"This is clearly an outstanding year for Pomerol" writes Decanter's James Lawther MW. And this is a remarkable value introduction to the style, from the legendary Christian Moueix (former owner of Château Pétrus, a Decanter 'Man of the Year' and the guy they refer to in Bordeaux as Mr. Merlot). Christian — the genius behind the "fabulous" Château La Fleur Pétrus 2010 (95-98+ Parker Points) — brings all his skill and quality-obsession to bear on Chantalouette . Full of the seductive black fruit and plummy generosity so prized by Pomerol fans. Sure to be popular.

Château Potensac 2010
Haut-Médoc AOC Cru Bourgeois

12 bottles (with wooden case) $329.99
Item No. 05752EP SOLD OUT

Robert Parker

87-89 points

"Traditionally made, yet exhibiting some modern touches such as ripe fruit, the 2010 Potensac is another sleeper of the vintage from this estate, owned by Jean-Hubert Delon, the proprietor of Léoville Las Cases. Classic Bordeaux notes of red and black currants, earth, and spice box are well-presented in this deep ruby/purple-colored, medium-bodied wine, which should drink nicely for a decade or more."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

90-93 points

"Very primal, with cassis and violet running from start to finish, backed by a lightly chalky, slightly tight finish. Shows the austere side of the vintage, but has admirable length."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Château Cantemerle 2010
Haut-Médoc AOC 5ième Cru Classé

12 bottles (with wooden case) $449.99
Item No. 05751EP SOLD OUT

Robert Parker

91-93 points

"A quintessentially elegant style of Bordeaux, the opaque ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Cantemerle possesses elegant floral notes intermixed with hints of blueberries, raspberries, sweet red cherries and currants. Medium-bodied with impressive purity, concentration and texture, it is not a heavyweight, but rather a well-proportioned, stylish red that should drink nicely for 15-20 years."
— Robert Parker

Decanter

17 points

"Finely expressed, deep but lifted and potentially complex fruit, refreshing acidity and firmness to add length to its habitual charm. Drink 2017-26."
— Decanter

James Suckling

93-94 points

"Layered and rich with lots of blueberry character and ripe velvety tannins. Lovely texture. Best wine from here in years."
— James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com (March 2011)

Château du Tertre 2010
Margaux AOC 5ième Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $269.99
Item No. 05742EP SOLD OUT

Wine Spectator

90-93 points

"This is textbook Margaux, with a supple, velvety feel and a stylish core of plum, red currant and black cherry fruit laced with perfumy spice and followed by lightly dusty tannins."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

17 points

"Beautifully balanced Cabernet fruit, florality, ripeness and good firm length all in perfect balance. Drink 2017-30."
— Decanter

Château de Fieuzal 2010
Pessac-Léognan AOC Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $269.99
Item No. 05750EP SOLD OUT

Robert Parker

90-92 points

"This is a rare instance where an estate's 2008 may be better than their 2010. The latter wine possesses plenty of super-ripe red and black fruits as well as hints of graphite, crushed rocks and white flowers. There is elegant minerality and a medium-bodied palate, but copious tannins kick in in the finish. Five to seven years of cellaring will be essential for this structured, masculine effort."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

90-93 points

"Sappy and intense, with kirsch and crushed raspberry fruit aromas and flavors and superfresh acidity driving underneath. Features lots of spice and violet notes on the finish."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

16.5 points

"Well-concentrated slightly smoky blackcurrant fruit, rich and broad flavours, a big fleshy wine with controlled power. Drink 2015-25."
— Decanter

Château Gloria 2010
Saint-Julien AOC

6 bottles (with wooden case) $289.99
Item No. 05745EP SOLD OUT

Robert Parker

91-93 points

"A sensational effort, the 2010 Gloria may turn out to be the finest wine they have made since 1982, although the 2009 is a serious contender for that honor as well. A bigger than life as well as more backward than normal offering, the 2010 exhibits an inky/purple color along with an opulent display of black currants, jammy cherries, licorice, cedar and roasted herbs. Some serious tannin gives the wine grip, but this is a full-bodied, big, thick, well-proportioned, super-endowed Gloria that will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and keep for two decades."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

92-95 points

"Mouthfilling, with a core of plum and black currant fruit that expands in the mouth, while tobacco, graphite and roasted fig notes filling in. Long, with a dark tarry edge on the finish."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

17.5 points

"Deep cassis fruit, already a fragrant and lifted nose, refreshing Cabernet flavours and good length, the quality of a Cru Classé. Drink 2017-28."
— Decanter

Château La Dominique 2010
Saint-Emilion AOC Grand Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $319.99
Item No. 5755EP SOLD OUT

Robert Parker

92-94 points

"Probably the finest La Dominique made since the wonderful duo of 1989 and 1990, the explosively fruity, dense purple-hued 2010 offers notes of licorice, roasted herbs, truffles, black raspberries and blueberry liqueur. Full-bodied and unctuously textured with sweet tannin as well as good freshness and precision, it should drink well for 15-20 years. P. S. The final blend was 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc that achieved 14.5% natural alcohol."
— Robert Parker

Decanter

17.5 points

"You have to go back to 1989 to find a vintage as fine as this. Elegant, lifted, crushed berry fruit aroma and flavour. Ripe, precise tannins. Long, fresh, persistent finish. Drink 2018-2035."
— Decanter

Château Talbot 2010
St. Julien AOC 4ième Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $429.99
Item No. 05748EP SOLD OUT

Robert Parker

91-93 points

"Abundant amounts of sweet, up-front fruit give this wine a precocious appeal compared to many of its brethren. It exhibits a dense plum/ruby/purple hue along with sweet boysenberry, black currant, cherry, smoke and licorice aromas and flavors. This deep, medium to full-bodied, classic Talbot should be approachable when released, and age effortlessly for 15 or more years."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

90-93 points

"Plump and rather open, with delicious plum, raspberry and black cherry fruit melded with spice and anise. This has a nice chocolaty finish, with a velvety feel."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

17 points

"Rich, very ripe cassis Cabernet fruit, smooth, even succulent flavours, quite an open style in this vintage. Drink 2016-26."
— Decanter

Château Gruaud Larose 2010
Saint-Julien AOC 2ième Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $479.99
Item No. 05746EP Call 1-800-267-0548

Robert Parker

92-94 points

"This gets my nod as the finest Gruaud Larose since the 2000 and 1990. The opaque purple-colored 2010 exhibits copious notes of Asian plum sauce, spice box, creme de cassis, loamy soil and a beefy/meaty character. It is full-bodied, dense and powerful, with stunning purity and no evidence of brett (a characteristic of the great Gruaud Larose wines made in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s). Given the 2010's tannin profile, it will require 5-8 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades thereafter."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

93-96 points

"Offers a serious core of kirsch, blackberry and plum sauce notes, with lovely, velvety tannins taking over the pure, violet-tinged finish, which has length and grace. Shows more elegance than most of its peers in this vintage. "
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

18 points

"Big, typically smoky-spicy Gruaud nose, lots of fleshy fruit, lifted and almost exotic flavours harmonious depth and length, back on top form for the medium-long term. Drink 2018-30."
— Decanter

Château d'Issan 2010
Margaux AOC 3ième Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $499.99
Item No. 05741EP SOLD OUT

Robert Parker

94-96 points

"Emmanuel Cruse has done a superb job at this moated castle on the southern approach to the appellation of Margaux. The dense blue/purple-tinged 2010 reveals notes of violets, blue and black fruits, a striking minerality, excellent purity, texture and length, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and noticeable but sweet, well-integrated tannins. It should drink well in 5-6 years and last 25-35."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

89-92 points

"A juicy, ripe, forward style, with lots of kirsch and blackberry notes filled in with apple, sweet spice and red licorice, followed by a juicy finish. Not quite as vivid as the top examples, but solid."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

18 points

"Fine fragrant nose, perfect extraction, already beautifully textured, great future, probably the best d'Issan yet. Drink 2016-35."
— Decanter

Château Brane-Cantenac 2010
Margaux AOC 2ième Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $579.99
Item No. 05740EP Call 1-800-267-0548

Robert Parker

93-96 points

"While the 2010 may not eclipse the 2009 or 2005, it is an exceptional wine from proprietor Henri Lurton. A dense purple color is accompanied by a floral-scented bouquet revealing notes of licorice, graphite and red as well as black currants. Layered, rich and concentrated, this impressively constructed, seamless Margaux has plenty of tannin, but it is buried under the extravagant fruit and glycerin. This rich, pure, authoritative 2010 should drink well young yet keep for 25-30+ years."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

90-93 points

"A fresh, floral style, with violet and rose aromas followed by a mix of vibrant red currant and blackberry fruit. The dusty finish has good underlying acidity, keeping it racy."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

18 points

"Beautifully expressed Cabernet fruit, pure Margaux elegance that combines intensity and finesse, long flavours, excellent balance that shows up Brane's specific style. Drink 2016-30."
— Decanter

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste 2010
Pauillac AOC 5ième Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $589.99
Item No. 05743EP Call 1-800-267-0548

Robert Parker

93-96 points

"The greatest Grand Puy Lacoste since the 2005, 2000 and 1990, the fabulous 2010 reveals all the hallmarks of this estate. It boasts a dense purple color along with classic notes of creme de cassis, blueberries, blackberries, crushed rocks and flowers, sweet tannin and an exceptionally full-bodied and multilayered mouthfeel as well as a boatload of tannin. Cellar it for a decade and drink it over the following three decades. Proprietor Xavier Borie's 2010 recalls the 2005."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

92-95 points

"Juicy and still a bit compact, but with red currant, blackberry and roasted vanilla flavors. Shows the racy style of the vintage, with a solid core of fruit for balance. The pure, lengthy finish has nice polish, and this is rock-solid, with a flash of coffee at the end."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

18 points

"Lots of lush, succulent cassis fruit, good meaty depth, fully flavoured, perhaps not the most complex. Drink 2017-27."
— Decanter

Château Fourtet 2010
Saint-Emilion AOC Premier Grand Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $729.99
Item No. 05756EP Call 1-800-267-0548

Robert Parker

95-97 points

"Although this superb 2010 is built differently, it is as impressive as the extravagant 2009 and the prodigious 2005. A blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc made from yields of 31 hectoliters per hectare, with 14.5% natural alcohol, Stéphane Derenoncourt is the consulting winemaker. One cannot say enough about what proprietor Philippe Cuvelier has accomplished at Clos Fourtet over the last decade turning a perennial underachiever into one of the great wines of Bordeaux. Production from this 50-acre vineyard is nearly 4,000 cases. The inky/purple-hued 2010 displays a beautiful bouquet of incense, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, licorice and camphor. Full-bodied and opulent with more tannin and glycerin than the massive 2009, the 2010, while less sumptuous than the 2009, is a huge effort that is undoubtedly capable of lasting 30+ years."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

92-95 points

"Beautifully polished, with rounded enticing blueberry, raspberry and black cherry fruit that all glides through the spice-tinged finish. Suave and very long, with the structure already embedded. "
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

18 points

"Outstanding effort. One of the best from this estate. Could be a great buy. Dense, round, perfumed fruit. Lovely texture and weight. Balancing freshness and long, persistent finish. Drink 2018-2040."
— Decanter

Château Pavie-Macquin 2010
Saint-Emilion AOC Premier Grand Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $799.99
Item No. 05757EP Call 1-800-267-0548

Robert Parker

95-97 points

"Although not as potent alcoholically as its 2009 counterpart (14.5% in 2010 versus 15% in 2009), the 2010 is still a very big wine. The final blend was 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon and production was slightly more than 3,400 cases. This black/purple-tinged wine exhibits lots of minerality (from this terroir's clay and limestone soils) as well as the entire spectrum of black fruits. Full-bodied and backward, it's like drinking crushed limestone/chalk when you taste this intense, tannic, powerful wine. It will require 8-10 years of cellaring and should evolve for 35-40+ years."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

95-98 points

"This is flashy, with overt blueberry, fig and boysenberry aromas and flavors, but plenty of polish and poise too, thanks to alluring incense and licorice notes. There's lots of range and grip. Really beautiful."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

18 points

"Rich, dense and powerful but extremely well balanced. Huge depth of fruit. Striking freshness. Bags of ripe tannin. Great ageing potential. Drink 2020-2040."

Château Lynch-Bages 2010
Pauillac AOC 5ième Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $999.99
Item No. 05744EP Call 1-800-267-0548

Robert Parker

95-97 points

"Over the last three vintages, Lynch Bages has returned with a vengeance after somewhat listless performances following their brilliant duo of 1989 and 1990. Much of the credit for this must go to Jean-Charles Cazes who has taken over for his father, Jean-Michel, one of the greatest ambassadors Bordeaux has ever had. The 2010 blew me away on each occasion I tasted it during my two week sojourn in Bordeaux. Tannic and concentrated, this huge Pauillac boasts an inky/purple color as well as impressive notes of creme de cassis, smoke, graphite and spring flowers. This dense, seriously endowed, monstrous Lynch Bages is reminiscent of some of the wines made at this estate in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. It will require 4-5 years of cellaring and should be drinkable for 3-4 decades."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

95-98 points

"Sleek and pure, with seamless cassis, blackberry and bitter cherry notes laced tightly with iron and sweet spice. Long and pure. Probably the best second wine yet from here."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

18 points

"Very good concentration of Cabernet fruits, rich and earthy, vibrant, vigorous flavours and packed with energy, a wine that once again justifies this château's reputation. Drink 2020-40."

Château Ducru Beaucaillou 2010
Saint-Julien AOC 2ième Cru Classé

6 bottles (with wooden case) $1,549.99
Item No. 05747EP Call 1-800-267-0548

Robert Parker

96-98+ points

"Representing 45% of their total production, the 2010 Ducru will certainly compete with the efforts produced in 2009, 2008, and 2005. It hit 14% natural alcohol, compared to 13.5% in 2009 and 2008. A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot, the wine has a surprisingly lower pH (3.62) than the 2009, or the 2005 for that matter. A truly remarkable wine, with a dense purple color and a beautiful nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers and crushed rock, this full-bodied, sensationally concentrated wine has massive richness, high but very sweet tannin, and stunning purity and depth. Proprietor Bruno Borie seems to have pulled out all the stops in turning out an absolutely compelling effort that is the essence of Ducru Beaucaillou. It should drink well for 30-40 years."
— Robert Parker

Decanter

19 points

"Superb colour, an explosion of fruit above great depth and much more polished, deeper and fresher than the 2009, hard to imagine a better Ducru. Drink 2020-50."
— Decanter

James Suckling

99-100 points

"I can't believe the precision and complexity in this wine. This is really amazing with minerals, berries, currants and blackberries. Full and extraordinary. It goes on and on and on. Tasted twice. Best ever from Ducru."
— James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com (April 2011)

Château Conseillante 2010
Pomerol AOC

6 bottles (with wooden case) $1,549.99
Item No. 5790EP Call 1-800-267-0548

Robert Parker

95-98 points

"A monumental La Conseillante, the 2010 completes a remarkable decade for this estate. Quintessentially floral, this dense purple-colored effort reveals sweet flowery black raspberry and blueberry liqueur notes, more power, muscle and concentration than most vintages and exquisite elegance, purity and personality. Serious tannin lurks beneath the surface, but the overall impression is of a medium to full-bodied, strikingly deep, beautifully pure, well-balanced wine. Give it 3-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30+."
— Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

94-97 points

"Shows impressive power and purity, with waves of blueberry, fig and spice notes backed by black tea and graphite. Velvety and very long, this has some power in reserve, but it's really silky. A beauty."
— James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Decanter

18.5 points

"Slightly more assertive than the '09 but very fine. Deep colour. Lovely density of fruit - blackcurrant note on the nose. Has volume on the palate but freshness as well. Good line and length. Violet, liquorish notes on the finish. Firm, grainy tannins. Drink 2020-2045."
— Decanter
