1 M. CHAPOUTIER ERMITAGE LE PAVILLON 2005 Rhône 3 x scraped labels My favorite of the 2005s from Chapoutier, the 2005 Ermitage Le Pavillon is a heavenly wine that comes from one of the greatest sites for Syrah in the world, the steep, granite-dominated hillside of les Bessards. Getting a bevy of expletives in my notes, this insanely good Hermitage offers classic notes of smoked meats, charcoal, liquid rock, burning embers, chocolate and cassis, as well as a thick, unctuous and massively concentrated style on the palate. Changing in the glass, with exotic aromatics, incredible purity and building, polished tannin, Syrah doesn’t get any better. Given the youthful profile here, I’m sure this will see its 50th birthday in fine form, but it still delivers plenty of pleasure today given its texture, purity and balance. March 2016 Drink: 2020-2055. Only 534 cases made. WA 100 3 bts.

per lot $800 - $1,000

2 M. CHAPOUTIER ERMITAGE LE PAVILLON 2006 Rhône 3 x scraped labels Showing more minerality than the le Meal, yet more plushness and sexiness than the l’Ermite, the 2006 Ermitage le Pavillon is a tour de force that gives up sensational notes of crushed rocks, blackberries, currants, smoked meats and licorice. It shows a touch of iron and bloodiness with time in the glass, is full-bodied, seamless and incredibly layered on the palate. There’s no shortage of tannin either and this beauty needs 4-5 years of cellaring to hit full maturity, and will keep for another 2-3 decades. Only 955 cases made. February 2017 Drink: 2018-2048. Only 1177 cases made. WA 98 3 bts.

per lot $700 - $900


3 M. CHAPOUTIER ERMITAGE L’ERMITE 2005 Rhône 6 x scraped labels Lastly, from the very dome of the granite hill of Ermitage is the 2005 Ermitage l’Ermite. An extraordinarily powerful wine that probably needs 10-15 years in the bottle (last year I thought 20 was probably conservative), this is a 100-year wine and probably best appreciated by our descendants rather than anyone currently over the age of 30. Dense purple to the rim, with notes of crushed rock, charcoal, roasted meats, and enormous quantities of blue and black fruits, this wine is almost painfully rich and thick, with mouthsearing levels of tannin and zesty acidity. Monumental! Anticipated maturity: 2020-2080. Only 308 cases made. WS 98 WA 99+ 6 bts.

per lot $1,600 - $1,800

4 M. CHAPOUTIER ERMITAGE L’ERMITE 2006 Rhône 5 x scraped labels More taut, focused and chiseled than the le Pavillon, the blockbuster 2006 Ermitage L’Ermite offers full-bodied richness, a liquid rock-like minerality and sensational notes of black currants, bloody meat, licorice and spice. Reminding me of the 1995, with sensational depth, purity and length, this incredible wine won’t hit maturity for another decade, and will keep for 2-3 decades. February 2017. Drink: 2021-2050 Only 955 cases made. WS 97 WA 98 5 bts.

It has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of warm blackberries, cassis, black cherries and licorice with touches of roses and dark chocolate. The medium-bodied palate is firm and chewy with good concentration and a spicy finish. February 2018 Drink: 2020-2042 WS 93 WA 93 JS 95 6 bts.

9 CHÂTEAU CALON-SÉGUR 2016 Saint-Estèphe 2 x scuffed labels The 2016 Calon-Ségur is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aged in 100% new French oak for 20 months. Deep garnet-purple colored, it is a little closed to begin, slowly revealing warm red and black currants, kirsch and plum preserves with wafts of fragrant earth, violets, chocolate box and wood smoke. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly expressed and finely crafted, it has a wonderfully fine-grained texture and bold freshness supporting the densely packed black fruits, finishing long and minerallaced.

11 CHÂTEAU MONTROSE 2015 Saint-Estèphe 7 x scuffed labels The deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Montrose opens with broody black fruits, menthol and anise notes with a core of cassis, blueberries and mulberries plus a touch of cedar chest.

November 2018 Drink: 2022-2055 WA 98+ JS 97 CHÂTEAU CHEVAL BLANC 2003 (1) Saint-Émilion u. bn. stained & scuffed label “Menthol, tobacco and incense aromas give way to warm, plum, blackberry and black cherry compote flavors. Loam and cedar notes ride through the finish, with the supple fruit lingering. Admirably seductive for the vintage.” WS 95 5 bts.

per lot $1,200 - $1,400


13 CHÂTEAU LAFLEUR 1999 Pomerol u. 2 x bn. 2 x scuffed & marked labels This wine is a brilliant success, it is one of the stars of the vintage. Lafleur’s 1999 is atypically powerful and concentrated, with an inky, saturated purple color followed by a sensational nose of black cherry jam intermixed with liquid minerals, raspberries, and licorice. It is super concentrated, extraordinarily pure, with moderately high tannin. This dense, powerful, impressively endowed wine should turn out to be a classic for Lafleur. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025. Only 2,080 cases made. April 2002 WA 93 2 bts.

14 CHÂTEAU LA FLEUR-PÉTRUS 2016 (OWC) Pomerol Blended of 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, the medium garnet-purple colored 2016 la Fleur-Petrus reveals stunning Black Forest cake, redcurrant jelly and wilted roses scents with underlying suggestions of pencil shavings, yeast extract, dark chocolate and cloves. Medium to fullbodied, the mid-palate possesses superb intensity and depth with layers of perfumed black fruits and loads of red fruit sparks framed by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note. Only 3100 cases made. November 2018 Drink: 20212048 WA 97 JS 99 6 bts.

15 CHĂ‚TEAU TROTANOY 2016 (OWC) Pomerol Composed of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Trotanoy is characteristically a little closed at this youthful stage, slowly unfurling to reveal compelling notions of chocolate-covered cherries, black raspberries and mulberries with touches of pencil lead, crushed rocks, underbrush and chargrill plus a fragrant waft of star anise. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and invigorating freshness supporting the densely packed, muscular fruits, finishing very long and mineral laced. Only 1,450 cases made. November 2018 Drink: 2022-2055 WA 99 JS 98 6 bts.

16 VIEUX CHĂ‚TEAU CERTAN 2015 Pomerol 1 x scuffed label It is bridled with a heavenly bouquet with intense red and black fruit, black truffle and a touch of smoke, opening wonderfully in the glass; the Cabernet Franc is very expressive and imparting a licorice note after ten minutes. The palate is medium-bodied with intensity, with a killer line of acidity that imparts freshness from the very start. There is life-affirming tension interwoven throughout this extremely complex wine from Alexandre and Guillaume Thienpont. There are layers, more like a mille-feuille of blackberry, boysenberry, mineral, truffle and a touch of spice towards the finish, just a touch of warmth from the alcohol that merely complements an extraordinary and profound Pomerol. April 2016 Drink: 2025-2060 WA (98-100) JS 100 2 bts.

February 1998 WS 96 WA 95 CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 2000 (1) Pauillac Black Forest cake, dried mulberries, kirsch and blackcurrant pastilles notes plus wafts of iodine, incense, potpourri and cinnamon stick with a hint of cigar boxes.

19 CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1995 Pauillac u. 2 x scuffed & wrinkled labels. 1 x scraped label Bottled in June 1997, this profound Mouton is more accessible than the more muscular 1996. A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 19% Merlot, it reveals an opaque purple color, and reluctant aromas of cassis, truffles, coffee, licorice, and spice. In the mouth, the wine is “great stuff,” with superb density, a full-bodied personality, rich midpalate, and a layered, profound finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. There is outstanding purity and high tannin, but my instincts suggest this wine is lower in acidity and slightly fleshier than the brawnier, bigger 1996. Both are great efforts from MoutonRothschild.

22 LOUIS ROEDERER CRISTAL CHAMPAGNE BRUT ROSÉ 1989 (1, OWC) Champagne In original wooden case POL ROGER CUVÉE SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL CHAMPAGNE 2008 (1, OC) Champagne A complex bouquet of waxy citrus rind, dried white flowers, freshly baked bread, iodine and honeyed yellow apple. On the palate, the wine is fullbodied, powerful and vinous, with a deep and multidimensional core, broad structural shoulders and considerable concentration, girdled by tangy acids and displaying a youthfully frothy but incipiently fine mousse.

24 TENUTA SAN GUIDO BOLGHERI SASSICAIA SASSICAIA 2016 Tuscany This wine is chiseled and sharp with blackberry, ripe cherry, grilled herb and barbecue spice. The aromas flow from the glass in a continuous stream and are all marked by radiant intensity. The mouthfeel is long and powerful. The crisp linearity of the wine’s tannic backbone is perfectly measured to the volume and depth of the fruit flavors. To my mind, the 2016 Sassicaia stands tall next to the epic 1985 vintage that set the ultimate benchmark for vino italiano. January 2019 Drink 2021-2050 WA 100 6 bts.

Still inky/blue/ purple-tinged to the rim, it reveals an extraordinary bouquet of charcoal, incense, creme de cassis, blue and black fruits, and a hint of licorice as well as an impressively long finish.

It offers notable concentration and well-integrated tannins, all of which convey an impression of awesome harmony, finesse and balance. The tricky growing season seems to have been less of an issue for the Merlot, particularly in the old-vine Masseto Centrale vineyard. The 2005 Masseto has been superb every time I have tasted it thus far. As is often the case, the wine requires at least a few years of bottle age before it becomes approachable. June 2008 Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025. WA 94 1 bt.

62 CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2001 Margaux scraped label The 2001 Chateau Margaux continues to evolve in impressive fashion. The nose feels sensual, veering towards red rather than black fruit, with disarming purity and perhaps showing more floral/violet character than the 1999. Both display tremendous precision and delineation. The palate is medium-bodied, edgy and tensile with crisp acidity, so fresh and vital in the mouth. Tasted next to the 1996 Château Margaux, it is clear to see that the 2001 is several steps behind, yet the way it fans out with such confidence and brio on the finish assures that this has a prosperous future.

The wood is already totally concealed beneath the cascade of fruit in this medium to fullbodied, pure and majestic wine. This concentrated, dense, but nevertheless strikingly elegant, multi-layered wine has a finish of 45+ seconds. It builds incrementally to a crescendo and finale. This is a stunner that can be approached already, but promises to be better in another 5-10 years and last at least 25 or more years. WS 97 WA 98+ 1 bt.

Clinet has been on a hot streak lately and the 2009 appears to be the greatest wine ever made at the estate, surpassing even the late Jean-Michel Arcaute’s monumental 1989. A blend of 85% Merlot and tiny amounts of Cabernet Franc (12%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (3%), this big Pomerol boasts an opaque, moonless night inky/blue/purple color in addition to a gorgeous perfume of blueberry pie, incense, truffles, black raspberries, licorice and wood smoke. Viscous and multi-dimensional with silky, sweet tannin, massive fruit concentration and fullbodied power, there are nearly 4,000 cases of this thick, juicy, perfect Clinet.

This fabled terroir sandwiched between Petrus and Lafleur (hence the name) generally produces one of the more elegantly-styled Pomerols, but in 2009 it offers an extra dimension of flavor intensity as well as more texture and concentration. It reveals a super-seductive perfume of mocha, loamy soil, herbs, black cherries and black currants, truffles and licorice, full body and velvety tannins. The overall impression is one of intensity, power, glycerin and richness as well as undeniable elegance and laser-like focus. This 2009 can be drunk now or cellared for another 25-30+ years.

94 CHÂTEAU LAFLEUR 2004 (1) Pomerol u. bn. The nose demonstrates a sense of energy married with outstanding delineation: blackberry, blueberry and freshly shaved black truffle. The palate is extremely focused and tense, the acidity perfectly judged, and though the growing season perhaps curtails the sustain on the finish, there is coolness and a nonchalance here that is captivating. There remains some adolescent broodiness here, but give it another 3-4 years and you will have a great Pomerol and a great Lafleur on your hands. Tasted February 2015.

This bottle reaffirmed previous reviews, although the aromatics were perhaps a little more immediate with blackberry, roasted chestnut and truffles, just a touch of glycerin, all delivered with fabulous precision. The oak is more assimilated on the palate that still feels succulent. But, look a little further and there is real backbone cloaked by all that fruit, plus there is awe-inspiring persistence on the finish that just lacquers the mouth. Stupendous! Tasted November 2016.

Loads of crushed rock and chalkiness, along with licorice, black truffle, smoked game and black fruits dominate the aromatics and flavor. Backward, formidably endowed, fullbodied and almost atypically massive and huge, with gargantuan extraction, this is a wine for patient connoisseurs to forget about for close to a decade.

Spring flowers, crushed rocks, creme de cassis and some subtle oak are followed by a full-bodied, concentrated wine that transcends the vintage character in its power, richness, and aging potential. It also exhibits tremendous precision, purity, and depth of character. It is more forward than the 2010 is likely to be, but probably not as sumptuous as the 2009 will turn out to be.

A soaring bouquet of creme de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spring flowers is followed by a super-concentrated wine with silky tannins, stunning amounts of glycerin, a voluptuous, multilayered mouthfeel and nearly 14% natural alcohol. Displaying fabulous definition for such a big, plump, massive, concentrated effort, I suspect the tannin levels are high even though they are largely concealed by lavish amounts of fruit, glycerin and extract.

A wine of irrefutable purity, laser-like precision, colossal weight and richness, and sensational freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking that is capable of lasting 50 or more years. The tannins are elevated, but they are sweet and beautifully integrated as are the acidity, wood and alcohol (which must be in excess of 14%). This vineyard, which is situated on the high plateau of Pauillac adjacent to Mouton Rothschild, appears to have done everything perfectly in 2009. Maturity: 2025-2075 WA 100 3 bts.

Displaying a rare combination of power and elegance, this dense purple-colored offering exhibits notes of blackberries, truffles, flowers, incense, and camphor. Long, classic, and medium to full-bodied with stunning texture and richness, this superb effort is a candidate for the finest Margaux of the vintage.

111 CHÂTEAU COS D’ESTOURNEL 2009 Saint-Estèphe u. bn. It boasts an inky/black/purple color along with an extraordinary bouquet of white flowers interwoven with blackberry and blueberry liqueur, incense, charcoal and graphite. The wine hits the palate with extraordinary purity, balance and intensity as well as perfect equilibrium, and a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood and alcohol. An iconic wine as well as a remarkable achievement, it is the greatest Cos d’Estournel ever produced. It is approachable enough at present that one could appreciate it with several hours of decanting, but it will not hit its prime for a decade, and should age effortlessly for a half century.

The palate is medium-bodied rather than full bodied with sturdy tannins couched in layers of seamless blackberry and cassis fruit, offset by scents of tobacco and graphite. As usual it has immense length and depth, a Montrose that is really just a few chapters into what is sure to be a longer “book” than many other 2003s. It is not a perfect Montrose, but a couple of hairs’ breadth away. Tasted February 2017. WS 95 WA 98 2 bts.

Its healthy blue/purple color is followed by aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, licorice, truffles, underbrush and forest floor. The scorched earthy/smoky character of this estate’s terroir has not yet emerged. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated with good acidity, freshness and delineation, this is a big wine for the vintage, but also very classic in its balance of tannin, acidity and extract. It will benefit from another 5-7 years of cellaring and should keep for three decades. August 2012 WA 95 3 bts.

Still inky purple in color, it possesses beautiful freshness and focus, with killer notes of blackcurrants, liquid violets, licorice, crushed rock and cured meats all soaring from the glass. As with the ’09 and ’06, it has off-the-charts concentration, thrilling mid-palate depth and serious structure.

169 GRAHAM’S VINTAGE PORT 1991 (OWC) Douro, Portugal Graham’s 1991 Vintage Port gets my nod as the port of the vintage. While keeping in mind that Graham’s aims for a sweeter-styled port, there is no doubting the opaque purple/black color, or the explosive nose of black fruits, licorice, spring flowers, and tar. Thick and full-bodied, with a satiny texture and a blockbuster, alcoholic finish, this is a topnotch vintage port. February 1995 WA 94 12 bts.

170 GRAHAM’S VINTAGE PORT 1994 Douro, Portugal 1 x stained capsule In a port tasting, tasting Graham’s is almost like tasting a big, rich, succulent Merlot after a group of blockbuster, tannic Cabernets. Sweeter and more obvious than many ports, the opaque purplecolored 1994 is fruity, powerful, and rich, with an addictive hedonistic quality. It will be ready to drink in 8-10 years and keep for up to 30. As always, this is a showy, flamboyant port that has the advantage of being slightly sweeter than other 1994s. A great Graham’s. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2035. October 1996 WA 96 9 bts.

171 TAYLOR FLADGATE VINTAGE PORT 1992 (OWC) Douro, Portugal This is a massive, magnificently rich, fullbodied port that will be far more flattering in its youth than were such Taylors as the 1983, 1977, or 1970. It possesses awesome fruit, marvelous intensity, and lavish opulence, all brilliantly well-delineated by the wine’s formidable structure. This monumental 30-50 year port is a must purchase for port aficionados.! Also noteworthy is the fact that the 1992 Taylor commemorates the 300th anniversary of this firm, as evidenced by the special bottle Taylor used for this port.

It is a young, rich, powerful Taylor that will require 10-15 years of aging. Compared to the more flashy, forward style of the 1992, the 1994 has more in common with such vintages as 1977 and 1970.

173 FONSECA PORTO GUIMARAENS VINTAGE 1992 Port 12 x scraped labels Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house’s most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years.

It exhibits a beautiful honeyed citrus, nectarine, crushed rock, honeysuckle and tropical fruit blossomscented bouquet, terrific stuffing, good acidity and wonderful density as well as richness.

Medium to fullbodied, it fills the mouth with rich, plushly textured fruit and then POW—it hits the mid-palate with an explosion of Chinese five spice and floral perfume sparks, leading to an epically long finish.

251 CHÂTEAU LATOUR 2004 Pauillac u. 2 x bn. 1 x scraped label. The 2004 Latour is perhaps evolving slower than I expected, although it remains one of the finest Left Bank wines of the vintage. It has that quintessential graphite-scented bouquet intermixed with blackberry and cedar, although the liquorice note that I observed previously has receded. Again, there is wonderful definition. The palate is full-bodied but surprisingly more sultry than I expected, especially here where I was able to directly compare it with the other 2004 First Growths. It delivers the “authority” you expect from Latour, although I might be inclined just to give it another 2-3 years in bottle. Tasted September 2016. Drink: 2020-2045 WS 95 WA 95 2 bts.

In the mouth, there is some angularity and rustic tannins remaining, but they are not out of balance. With medium to full body as well as more depth than many of its peers, the wine appears to be close to full maturity. However, with this level of acidity and tannin, it is not likely to fall apart any time soon. Anticipated maturity: now2025. WS 92 2 bts.

264 BRUNO GIACOSA BAROLO FALLETTO 2011 Piedmont 3 x scuffed labels The 2011 Barolo Falletto is a beautifully balanced and determined wine. It spends 30 months in oak and this warm vintage is already showing a quick bottle evolution. This was an early vintage: Fruit was harvested on September 23, which is ten days before average. It shows soft, luscious lines and ripe fruit favors that are both generous and opulent. Yet, there is a healthy crunchiness and crackle in the mouth that makes for a long aging future ahead. Barolo Falletto closes with pretty aromas of dark fruit, spice and shaved truffle. June 2015 Drink: 2017-2035 WA 94 3 bts.

Initially linear on entry, it explodes on the palate with a compelling array of dark fruit, smoke, tar, licorice, new leather, plums and baking spices. Although Bric del Fiasc is typically a wine that relies on power, the 2004 is notably refined and elegant, with sweet silky tannins that support the fruit from start to finish.

However, the 1982 is still evolving at a glacial pace. The concentration remains remarkable, and the wine is a full-bodied, exuberant, rich, classic Pauillac in its aromatic and flavor profiles. It’s just juiced up (similar to an athlete on steroids) and is all the better for it. This remarkable effort will last as long as the 1982 Mouton, but it has always been more approachable and decadently fruity. Drink it now, in 20 years, and in 50 years!

It appears capable of remaining fruity and vibrant in 2082! Thank God it is beginning to budge, as I would like to drink most of my supply before I kick the bucket. This is a great, still youthful wine, and, on occasion, one does understand the hierarchy of Bordeaux chateaux when you see the complexity and brilliance of this firstgrowth.

273 CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1986 Pauillac u. 1 x bn. 1 x vts. 2 x wrinkled & scuffed labels The palate is beautifully balanced with its trademark firm tannic structure, a MoutonRothschild with backbone and masculinity. Layers of black fruit intermingling with mint and graphite, a hint of licorice emanating from the Merlot, gently fanning out and my God, it is incredibly long. It is not like the 1985 Mouton-Rothschild that is so fleshy and generous. This is serious, aristocratic Mouton, a true vin de garde and yes, I do think drinkers will have to wait until it reaches its true peak. Sometimes that’s just the way it is. Tasted September 2016.

276 SHAFER CABERNET SAUVIGNON HILLSIDE SELECT 2001 (OWC) Stags Leap District, Napa Valley 1 x scraped label The 2001 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is the first of these backto-back perfect wines from Shafer that, at age 13, is still a baby, but, wow, what an amazing wine. A fabulous growing season produced a wine with inky/purple black color, stunning crème de cassis notes, with additional hints of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, cedar wood and forest floor. It is full-bodied, sensationally concentrated, with a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol. This is a great, monumental Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that is still an infant, at age 13, going on 14. This has got at least three decades of life left in it, and probably won’t hit its peak for another 5-7 years. December 2014 Drink: 2019-2045 WA 100 6 bts.

I have Caymus Special Selection in my cellar back to some of the historic wines made by Chuck Wagner’s father in the early 1970s, and while the style’s gotten more precocious and consumer-friendly, these wines, even the more latter-day styles, have a tendency to age beautifully.

301 CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2004 Margaux u. 1 x scraped label The 2004 Chateau Margaux has always been a promising wine and here, served blind against the First Growths, it finally proved that patience is necessary when it comes to such wines. It has an exquisite bouquet with brilliant delineation, scents of redcurrant, raspberry coulis, cold stone (almost flint-like) with pencil-lead and cedar lending it a Pauillac-like sense of aristocratic flair. The palate is extremely well balanced with a supple opening, nigh perfect acidity with a surprisingly citric undercurrent that lends so much freshness and tension. While it does not have the weight and power of say, 2000, 2005 or 2009, it cruises along with utmost harmony and you become smitten by its charms - something that is perhaps in short supply among the First Growths in this vintage. This is excellent. Tasted September 2016 Drink: 2020-2050 WA 94 3 bts.

The wine is tannic and closed, but powerful and rich. It appears to possess length and intensity similar to the 1996. This is a great young Pauillac. February 1998 Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025.

339 FONSECA VINTAGE PORT 1992 (OWC) Douro, Portugal Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house’s most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years.

344 CHÂTEAU D’YQUEM 1990 Sauternes u. bn. scuffed label An extraordinary effort, Yquem’s 1990 is a rich and fabulously superb, sweet wine. This wine also possesses lots of elegance and finesse. The wine’s medium gold color is accompanied by an exceptionally sweet nose of honeyed tropical fruits, peaches, coconut, and apricots. High quality, subtle toasty oak is well-integrated. The wine is massive on the palate, with layers of intensely ripe botrytis-tinged, exceptionally sweet fruit. Surprisingly wellintegrated acidity, and a seamless, fullbodied power and richness have created a wine of remarkable harmony and purity. Certainly it is one of the richest Yquems I have ever tasted, with 50-100 years of potential longevity. An awesome Yquem! Anticipated maturity: 2003-2050+. April 1999 WA 99 1 bt.

It is a wine I never tire of tasting and is not to be missed. October 2007 WA 97 3 bts.

369 CHÂTEAU PÉTRUS 2012 Pomerol Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting, the 2012 Petrus demonstrated a forward, fruit-driven, ripe raspberry and wild strawberry bouquet underneath which lies graphite and forest floor aromas. It seems refined, understated, nonchalant even. The palate is mediumbodied with a slightly savory opening, as if there was a tiny drop of Cabernet Franc. The tannins are fine but firm, the red fruit infused with cooked meat, black pepper and sage notes, although I was anticipating a finish armed with more body. That may well develop in time, yet it remains a regal Pomerol that will probably merit a higher score with bottle age, hence the plus-sign against the score. Tasted January 2016. WS 96 WA 96+ 1 bt.

The palate displays exquisite balance, fresh and focused with a clean and precise finish that is only just beginning to show what it can do. Like so many millennial Bordeaux it has matured at its own pace, however, on this showing it seems determined to reward those with the greatest patience. Tasted November 2016.

Dense, medium to full-bodied, with high levels of tannin in a big, full-bodied style (much in the spirit of such classic Bordeaux vintages as 1966, 1986, and 1996), this wine possesses superb purity and serious length, but should be purchased only by those with considerable patience and a good, cold cellar, since it will need plenty of time.

The stunning 2004 Masseto (100% Merlot) presents layers of sweet jammy dark fruit and mineral notes that burst forth from the glass with notable length, purity and delineation. It is a decidedly elegant and super-refined Masseto that continues to integrate its 100% new oak well, showing extraordinary class and fine, silky-textured tannins that caress the palate on the long finish. The 2004 will be hard to resist in its youth as it is incredibly delicious even now, yet it promises to develop gracefully to at least age 20. It is a phenomenal effort that is not to be missed.

It comes in with 105 grams per liter of residual sugar. The youngest, fleshiest and fullest (perhaps because it is the youngest) of this vertical except for the unbottled 2017, this is also one of the most delicious. The fruit is so delectable that, at first, you don’t notice how much pure power it has. Then, it’s gorgeously textured, precise, focused and penetrating. July 2019 Drink: 2027-2075 WA 97+ 3 bts.

426 CHĂ‚TEAU PALMER 2005 Margaux u. 2 x bn. 3 x scuffed labels. 1 x scraped capsule Apparently the vines received 57% less rain than average, yet the 2005 shrugs off any water deficiency and has nurtured a wondrously pixelated bouquet, whereby mineralitĂŠ shines through the black cherry and blueberry fruit. Search deeper and you discover veins of graphite that impart a Pauillac-like allure. The palate is medium-bodied and intense, but it is not overwhelming, a Margaux that is galvanized with a firm backbone thereby ensuring this will age over the long term. The symmetry here is enthralling - a 2005 that is destined for greatness. The only question is whether it will surpass the 2009 or 2010 Palmer? It will be fun finding out. Tasted May 2015.

427 CHÂTEAU PALMER 2009 Margaux u. 3 x bn. 1 x scraped label One of the all-time great Palmers (along with the 1961, 1966, 1970, 1989, 2000 and 2005), the 2009 Palmer is a blend of 52% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and a whopping 7% Petit Verdot that came in at close to 14% natural alcohol. An opaque blue/black color suggests a wine with thrilling levels of concentration and intensity, and That’s exactly what a taster gets. Subtle smoke, incense and Asian spice (soy?) notes interwoven with graphite, blueberry, blackberry and cassis characteristics lead to a full-bodied, phenomenally concentrated, viscous, opulent wine with plenty of sweet tannin. This sensational Palmer reveals even more floral notes than vintages such as 2005 and 2000. It should drink well for 50 years. December 2011 Drink: 2012-2060 WA 97 3 bts.

The wine displays much of the same lead pencil, charcoal and black currant notes of its bigger sister, although it is forward, precocious and far less structured than the grand vin. Nevertheless, this wine, which can be drunk now, will cellar beautifully for at least 20-25 more years. February 2013 WA 94 3 bts.

430 CHÂTEAU LA FLEUR-PÉTRUS 2009 Pomerol u. 1 x bn. This fabled terroir sandwiched between Petrus and Lafleur (hence the name) generally produces one of the more elegantly-styled Pomerols, but in 2009 it offers an extra dimension of flavor intensity as well as more texture and concentration. It reveals a super-seductive perfume of mocha, loamy soil, herbs, black cherries and black currants, truffles and licorice, full body and velvety tannins. The overall impression is one of intensity, power, glycerin and richness as well as undeniable elegance and laser-like focus. This 2009 can be drunk now or cellared for another 25-30+ years.

431 CHÂTEAU PÉTRUS 2012 Pomerol u. bn Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting, the 2012 Petrus demonstrated a forward, fruit-driven, ripe raspberry and wild strawberry bouquet underneath which lies graphite and forest floor aromas. It seems refined, understated, nonchalant even. The palate is mediumbodied with a slightly savory opening, as if there was a tiny drop of Cabernet Franc. The tannins are fine but firm, the red fruit infused with cooked meat, black pepper and sage notes, although I was anticipating a finish armed with more body. That may well develop in time, yet it remains a regal Pomerol that will probably merit a higher score with bottle age, hence the plus-sign against the score. Tasted January 2016. WS 96 WA 96+ 1 bt.

It has more red than black fruit, more floral than the likes of the 2000 or 2001, beautifully defined with raspberry coulis, wild strawberry, clove and bay leaf, iris and violet unfurling with continued aeration. The palate has a pleasurable grainy texture and fine salinity.

SUPER TUSCANS IN OUR SEPTEMBER AUCTION UNDERSTANDING ITALIAN WINE CLASSIFICATIONS

Although it may sound like the title of an upcoming Pixar film about a charming Italian family fighting crime in the countryside, the term “Super Tuscan” is used to refer to wines from this region that are produced outside of the rules and traditions of Tuscany’s DOCs (“Denominazione di Origine Controllata”). Italian wine classifications cover every traditional Italian wine style and the laws governing its viticultural zone include permitted grape varietals and styles. Wines classified as DOCGs (“Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita”) hold Italy’s top wine classification.

DOC AND DOCG RULES Inspired by the French AOC (“Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée,” or “controlled designation of origin”), a strict classification system that covers products including wine, cheese, lavender, lentils and more, Italy introduced its own wine appellation system in the 1960s. Criticized as being at best too restrictive, and at worst, misguided, winemakers were frustrated by these restrictions. Some felt that Chianti wines had lost their oomph, and the introduction of Bordeaux-style grapes and French winemaking methods, such as the use of oak barrels, might help to revive the genre. By the end of the decade, producers outright rebelled against the DOC and DOCG rules, and began to experiment with different (and unsanctioned) varietals and techniques. Most notably, international grapes such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon were blended with indigenous varieties like Sangiovese, or even left to stand alone and unblended as what James Suckling refers to as “a remix of French grapes with Italian terroir.”


THE STORY BEGINS WITH MARCHESI MARIO INCISA DELLA ROCCHETTA Several winemakers claim to be the first to produce Super Tuscan wine, though consensus typically places Sassicaia, a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, as the forerunner. The story begins with Marchesi Mario Incisa della Rocchetta who relocated with his family from the outskirts of Rome to the village of Bolgheri in the early 1940’s. The local land was then dedicated to growing vegetables and legumes or was left uncultivated, thick with wild forests and scrub. Prior to his move to the Tuscan countryside, Incisa della Rocchetta had developed a palette for Bordeaux wines and found the local wines produced from the Trebbiano and Sangiovese varietals lacking. Taking cuttings from a friend’s vineyard he planted Cabernet Franc vines on an east-facing stony site with an elevation of 1,150 feet and set to work producing a locally-grown wine that he actually wanted to drink. While initial tastings proved less than thrilling, in time, Incisa della Rocchetta noticed that his wines aged beautifully, transforming what began as a grassy, green wine into something much greater. Encouraged, he planted more vines. He gave his wines to friends and family, without the intention to ever sell the product commercially. When his nephew, Piero Antinori, recognized the potential of Incisa della Rocchetta’s hobby his plans changed. Antinori enlisted enologist Giacomo Tachis to help refine the product with the most significant changes being the relocation of the vineyards and the introduction of Cabernet Sauvignon to temper the Cabernet Franc. This new location was named Sassicaia (from the Italian ‘sasso’, meaning stone) and the first vintage in 1968 was introduced to market in 1972. Within a few years Sassicaia was performing brilliantly on the world stage: competing and winning awards against the wines that so inspired their creator.

VINO DA TAVOLA (VDT) Because Super Tuscans did not conform to the government’s strict standards, these innovative wines were labelled as “Vino da Tavola” (VdT), table wine, Italy’s lowest tier of wine classification, despite their high calibre.

To entice consumers to drink such a “lowly” category of wine, Tuscan producers began using proprietary names, figuring that customers would remember the wine by brand rather than by appellation. The Italian suffix “-aia” refers to unused or vacant land, and was employed by Super Tuscan producers to reinforce this branding—think Ornellaia, Sassicaia and Solaia.

TOSCANA IGT (INDICAZIONE GEOGRAFICA TIPICA) Finally acknowledging the inadequacies of the DOC/ DOCG system, the Italian government introduced a new wine classification in 1992, Toscana IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica), to handle these outlying wines. IGT wines rank above VdT but below DOC and DOCG—although these tiers do not necessarily reflect the quality of the wine inside the bottle. Super Tuscans are typically modern, rich and full-bodied wines with notes of vanilla and spice. They remain highly collectible and age beautifully. Those new to the genre should look for the earliest pioneers of the region, which are still viewed as the most iconic: Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Tiganello.

For wines in bottles with defined shoulders, including Bordeaux, Port, and other wines, the level is measured and catalogued as follows:

For wines in bottles with sloping necks, including Burgundy, German and other wines, the level between the cork and wine is measured and catalogued in centimetres.

the easing of the cork and evaporation through cork and capsule. Usually no problem. Acceptable for any wine over 20 years old. Exceptional for pre-1950 wines. MID SHOULDER: Probably some weakening of the cork

and some risk. Not abnormal for wines 30 - 40 years of age. Estimates usually take this into account. LOW SHOULDER: Risky and usually only accepted

for sale if wine or label exceptionally rare or interesting. Always offered with low estimate. BOTTOM SHOULDER: Not acceptable for sale unless a

rare sort of bottle. Wine will usually be undrinkable.

The condition and drinkability of Burgundy is less affected by ullage than its equivalent from Bordeaux. A 5 - 7 cm ullage in a 50-year-old Burgundy can be considered normal, indeed good for age; 3.5-4 cm excellent for age; 7 cm rarely a risk. Example: (u. 3x5cm) means 3 bottles ullaged 5 cm.

Special notice: Though every effort is made to describe or measure the levels of older vintages, corks over 20 years old begin to lose their elasticity and levels can change between cataloguing and sale. Old corks have also been known to fail during or after shipment. We therefore repeat that there is always a risk of cork failure with old wines and due allowance must be made for this. Under no circumstances can an adjustment of price or credit be made after delivery except under the terms of the warranty stated in the Conditions of Sale.
