  1. Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 1996 Magnum 1.5L
    VM95
    $599.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! The 1996 Le Pergole Torte, from a cold, late-ripening vintage, is powerful and explosive, with a compelling interplay of ripeness, sweetness and structure. Cherry jam, wild flowers, mint, sweet spices, menthol and licorice meld together in the glass, while lavender, rose petal, quinine and a host of aromatic notes come alive on the finish. Although striking today, the 1996 will drink well for another 10-15 years, perhaps longer. Today, it is truly special. In 1996, the harvest began on October 21, exceedingly late, even for Montevertine. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media 2016 Learn More
  2. Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2001 Magnum 1.5L (Cracked Wax Capsule)
    VM97
    $369.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! Dark red with ruby highlights; appeared to grow darker with air. Deep aromas of plum, mocha, iodine, loam, licorice, brown spices and graphite, accented by a hint of black pepper. Wonderfully juicy and light on its feet, conveying intriguing dark fruit, spice and saline mineral intensity and outstanding thrust. This wonderfully penetrating wine is still a baby. Finishes with firm but suave tannins and outstanding slowly building length. This wonderfully complete, classy wine boasts powerful structure and strong salinity and actually went into a shell in the glass. It should still be held for several years and it should go on for decades. (13.1% alcohol) - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media Learn More
  3. Cune Rioja Imperial Gran Reserva 2010 Magnum 1.5L
    VM94
    $159.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! Vivid ruby-red. Smoky oak-accented red berries, cherry pit, incense and mocha aromas show outstanding clarity and vivacity. Sweet, expansive, palate-staining raspberry, cherry pie, vanilla and floral pastille flavors fan out steadily on the back half. The smoky note reemerges on an impressively long, floral- and spice-driven finish that's given shape by supple, harmonious tannins. In the context of world-class Spanish wines, which this one is, there's truly outstanding value here. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More
  4. Leoville Las Cases Saint Julien 2009 1.5L Magnum
    WA98
    $799.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98+ Points!  The 2009 Leoville Las Cases may be the most open-knit and forward Las Cases I have tasted to date. Analytically, it is high in tannin and the alcohol is 13.8%, nearly a record at this estate. This blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc was showing brilliantly at the 2009 tasting I did in Hong Kong and at a later tasting. It boasts an inky/purple color, monumental concentration and lots of sweet, jammy black currant, black cherry and kirsch fruit intermixed with crushed rock and mineral notes. As always, proprietor Jean-Hubert Delon has built a massive wine with exceptional precision, unbelievable purity and aging potential of 40-50 years. I was surprised by the lusciousness of this cuvee on several occasions, and how much more forward it is given the fact that Las Cases can often be forebodingly backward and in need of 10-15 years of cellaring (at age 30, the 1982 is still a baby in terms of development!). The super-concentrated 2009 needs another 5-7 years before additional nuances emerge. This is a brilliant, full-throttle St.-Julien.  Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate #199, February 2012

  5. Montrose Saint Estephe 2009 1.5L
    JS100
    WA100
    $799.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points!  Harvested between September 17 and October 5, this wine seems always open for business, so to speak, much like the great 1982s. 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 abundance. With an astounding dense purple color, the wine has velvety, sweet tannins, and an extremely open-knit and opulent blueberry, blackberry and creme de cassis nose. There is scorched earth, vanilla and, again, telltale licorice and spice. It is unctuously textured – thicker and juicier than the 2010 and more forward. This wine should come into its own in another five years. And again, it has at least 50+ years of aging potential.  Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate #214, August 2014

  6. Jean Fery Savigny Les Beaune Rouge 1990 1.5L Magnum Pre-Arrival
    $74.98
    Yup, for reals.  A never-moved Savigny Les Beaune from the legendary 1990 vintage, sourced straight from Beaune for less than the going rate for the current vintage!

    JD95
    JS97
    NM97
    VM96
    $319.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points!  Very rich and exotic with blackberry, black-tea, graphite and lead-pencil aromas. Full-bodied, dense and structured with lots of ripe tannins and a long, flavorful finish of currants and forest floor, combined with fresh mushrooms and bark. Needs four to five years to show its true potential. Try after 2024. - James Suckling

  8. Ausone 2008 MAGNUM
    WS94
    WA98
    $1,599.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points- "Possibly the “wine of the vintage,” the 2008 boasts an inky/blue/purple color as well as a glorious perfume of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, camphor, truffles and crushed rocks. With great fruit on the attack and mid-palate, a medium to full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel and a skyscraper-like finish, this prodigious effort over-delivers, even for this phenomenal terroir. Give it 5-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 40-50 years." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

  9. Cheval Blanc 2005 Magnum
    WS97
    WA100
    $1,699.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 points! The 2005 from Cheval Blanc is a quintessentially elegant, beautiful, deep bluish/ruby-colored wine from St.-Emilion, with raspberry, blueberry, and floral notes, impressive density, great precision, freshness and purity. Full-bodied, but extremely light on its feet, I don’t mean to gush, but it is super-intense, rich and just so meticulously crafted! This is another fabulous wine and a perfect expression for this vintage. It is difficult to forget the gorgeous blueberry and raspberry fruit, full body, sweet tannin, a multi-layered texture, and purity and palate presence of this stunning wine. Drink it over the next 20 years. P.S. In 2005, this was 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot.-Wine Advocate June, 2015

  10. Falletto di Bruno Giacosa Barolo Serralunga d'Alba 1998 1.5L Magnum
    VM95
    $399.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95+ Points!  Very good medium-deep red. Knockout Barolo nose in all its rustic splendor, showing everything from exotic fruits to smoke, game, tobacco, camphor and white truffle. Urgent, penetrating and supersweet, with nearly candied red fruit flavors saturating the palate. A youthfully aggressive wine that really needs a few years to calm down. Finishes with strong but fine tannins and great ripeness.

  11. Haut Brisson Saint Emilion 2015 1.5L Magnum
    JD92
    JS95
    WA91
    VM92
    $59.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points! Made by Jérôme Aguirre, who previously worked at Christine Péré-Vergé's vineyards in Pomerol, utilizing Michel Rolland as a consultant, the 2015 Château Haut Brisson is a gem based on 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that was raised in 35% new French oak. This medium to full-bodied, concentrated, intellectual 2015 offers a lifted, perfumed style in its cassis and assorted black/blue fruits, dried violets, Asian spice, and earthy, gravely, mineral-nuances. With solid mid-palate depth, a light, graceful texture, fine tannin and impressive length, I’d give bottle 4-5 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following 10-15 years. It’s a beautiful wine. Tasted twice. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com

  12. Sociando Mallet Haut Medoc 1996 1.5L Magnum
    WS90
    WA90
    $169.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points!  A classic Sociando-Mallet, this wine boasts a saturated purple color, as well as an intense nose of cassis liqueur, chocolate, and minerals. Dense and medium-bodied, with outstanding purity, and high tannin, this beautifully made wine is better than many classified growths. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #122

  13. Montrose Saint Estephe 1996 1.5L Magnum
    WA96
    $389.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points!  Tasted at the vertical in London, I have instead used the tasting note from a bottle opened at the property when I visited just a couple of weeks later. The 1996 Montrose is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot picked between 23 September and 6 October. It was served alongside the 1986 Montrose, however, this is a far better wine and reconfirms Robert Parker's remarks at his own vertical at the property in 2014. For me, it is that loamy character that defines the nose—freshly tilled, damp soil that tinctures the black fruit —that takes you straight to this particular château. This is classic through and through and very well defined. The palate is wonderful with very fine delineation, pitch-perfect acidity, touches of graphite infusing the red and black fruit that dovetails into a very pretty, floral finish. This is clearly one of the great wines of the 1996 vintage and I would be stocking up as much as I could, because it will give 30-40 years of pleasure. Tasted July 2016. - Neal Martin, robertparker.com

  14. Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac 1995 1.5L Magnum
    WA92
    $299.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points!  Tasted at The Ledbury at the Grand Puy Lacoste dinner. Contrasting the 1995 against the 1996, the delicious 1995 is probably drinking sooner. The nose is delightful with fine delineation: crisp red berried fruit, raspberry and wild strawberry interlaced with cedar and mint. The palate is well defined with a great sense of tension and vigour. Very fine, crisp tannins married with lively red fruits that want to leap out of the glass. There are hints of tobacco and cedar towards the finish that shows fine persistency, if not the complexity of other vintages. Simply delicious to drink. Tasted September 2011. - Neal Martin, robertparker.com
