Brane-Cantenac 2009, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot from Margaux, Bordeaux

"A spectacular effort from this estate rivaling their 2005, but more flashy/flamboyant, this dark ruby/purple wine has a strikingly intense nose of licorice, flowers, plums and dark berries. Medium to full-bodied, very approachable and silky, this suave, very sexy wine can be drunk early on as well as aged for 20+ years." 95 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Figeac 2009, 0.75L
Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Cabernet Sauvignon from St. Emilion, Bordeaux

"The aromas in this are amazing, with blueberries, blackberries and fresh mushrooms. Black olives. So aromatic. Full-bodied, with super velvety tannins and lovely depth of ripe fruit. Balanced. Wild flavors on the finish of, meat, berries and forest fruits. Hints of decadence. 33% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon. Best Figeac ever." 98 James Suckling

Les Pagodes de Cos 2009, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Petit Verdot / Merlot / Cabernet Franc from St. Estephe, Bordeaux

"The brilliant 2009 Les Pagodes de Cos actually has more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend than the grand vin (69% versus 65%) in addition to mostly Merlot and a small quantity of Petit Verdot. As powerful as the Cos in terms of alcoholic clout (14.5%), the full-bodied, round, generous Les Pagodes de Cos exhibits lots of creme de cassis and floral notes intermixed with hints of wood/barrique and spice. Juicy, succulent and remarkably fresh and well-delineated, it merits considerable attention from consumers. It should drink well for 15-20 years. Oddly enough, the second wine is superior to many vintages of Cos in the 1960s 1970s and 1980s!" 94 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Ygrec (Y de Chateau d`Yquem) 2009, 0.75L
Sauvignon Blanc / Sémillon from Bordeaux Supérieur, Bordeaux

"This is very pure, with lilting floral notes of honeysuckle and chamomile up front, followed by green fig, green almond, tangerine and Jonagold apple flavors that meld together seamlessly through the light toasty finish. There's lovely range and mouthfeel, with latent depth for cellaring." 93 Points Wine Spectator

Pierre Guillemot Corton Le Rognet et Corton 2009, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Ladoix Serrigny, Burgundy

"The Guillemot family has worked Savigny-lès-Beaune vines for eight generations (!) and produces wines with classic Burgundian finesse and balance, all while leaving us a reminder of Savigny’s rustic character. Guillemot is one of the quintessential KLWM producers, with wines that epitomize the local terroir and emphasize grace and elegance over power and structure. But do not be fooled into thinking that this means they lack aging potential; the Guillemots are very proud of their old wines and thankfully have the foresight to set aside a good supply and follow their wines’ development over the years. A recent tasting at the domaine included a 1989 and 1975 Savigny Blanc (that’s 35 years old, everyone!), as well as the ‘90, ‘88, ‘85, ‘82, ‘76, ’72, and ‘64 Rouge. There was not a single tired bottle in the bunch. We challenge anyone to find a better deal on Burgundies that are built to last like these . . . . Corton le Rognet et Corton Grand Cru: Vine Age, 50 Years / Soil Type, Ferruginous Oolite / Vineyard Area, 0.30ha . . . . Fermentation lasts for 15 to 16 days; Wine is fermented in wooden cuves; Regular punchdowns during the entire fermentation (2-3 times a day); Wine is aged in barrel (10% new for premier cru and grand cru) for 18 months; Wine is aged in bottle for 6 months before release."

Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon Brut 2009, 0.75L
Chardonnay / Pinot Noir / Pinot Meunier from Champagne, Champagne

"This is a DP that shows the ripeness of the 2009 vintage yet remains full of energy. Gorgeous aromas of cream, apple, mango, honeysuckle, and chalk follow through to a full body and super fine, tight texture. Dense and agile. Vinous. It’s like a top grand cru white Burgundy. Think Bâtard-Montrachet. More depth than the 2006." 97 Points James Suckling

Philipponnat Grand Blanc Extra Brut 2009, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Champagne, Champagne

"The 2009 Extra-Brut Grand Blanc shows the natural radiance of the year in a supple, racy personality. Hints of tropical fruit, pineapple, butter, pastry and vanillin notes all run through this super-expressive, inviting Blanc des Blancs from Philipponnat. The 2009 is a terrific choice for near and medium-term drinking. The Grand Blanc is a blend of fruit from Grauves, Trepaille, Avenay-Val-d’Or, Vertus and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Dosage is 4.25 grams per liter. Disgorged: June, 2019." 90 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Robert Craig Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity 2009, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California

"The winery's Affinity bottling has had mixed results over the years, but this is one of their best, right up there with the 2007. It's a beautiful wine, absolutely dry, tannic, smooth and complex in black currant flavor. A bright streak of acidity provides wonderful balance, and should help the wine to age. . ." 93 Points Wine Enthusiast
