[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Barde Haut St Emilion Unreleased - 93-94 - - 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

Very tight and direct with lots of limestone and salt aromas and flavors. Full body and firm and silky tannins. Tightly wound. Impressive.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Lovely plum, cassis and boysenberry fruit flavors glide through here, with polished toast and a bright red licorice accent on the finish. Nice energy.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The deep, inky-colored 2017 Barde-Haut is a seriously good 2017 from Hélène Garcin-Lévêque that offers tons of kirsch, ripe black cherries, and spice aromas and flavors in a rounded, silky, sexy style. It has wonderful purity of fruit, no hard edges, and a great finish. I suspect it will be reasonably approachable on release yet capable of lasting for 10-15 years. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc which will spend 18 months in 80% new French oak.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Batailley Pauillac Unreleased - 92-93 - - 89-92 -
Hide the tasting notes

This is a classically structured young Pauillac with tannins that roll over the finish. Medium to full body and a bright aftertaste.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Focused, if slightly taut and austere in style, with cedar and tobacco notes leading off, pulling red currant and damson plum fruit along with them. A cedar edge hangs on the finish, where a savory streak checks in.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Pauillac is one of the highlights in the Médoc in 2017, and the 2017 Château Batailley has outstanding potential. Deep purple-colored with a smoky, graphite, back fruit-driven bouquet, it’s broad, chunky and chewy on the palate. It lacks some elegance at the moment, but it’s an undeniably pleasure-bent effort.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Beauregard Pomerol Unreleased - 92-93 - - 89-92 -
Hide the tasting notes

Shows some serious length here with berries, chocolate and orange peel. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. 40% cabernet franc makes this happen. Rest merlot

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

A bright, floral style, with red currant and cherry fruit flavors streaking through, along with savory and incense notes. Fresh acidity makes the finish lengthy and focused.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The 2017 Château Beauregard, which is made with the help of Smith Haut Lafitte’s winemaker Fabien Tietgen, checks in as a 60/40 split of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This rounded, supple, elegant Pomerol offers up a medium-bodied, sexy personality as well as classic notes of ripe cherries, raspberries, flowers, and chocolate. It has ripe tannin, a layered, balanced style, and will drink nicely for a decade or more.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Beausejour Duffau St Emilion Unreleased - 95-96 - - 93-96 -
Hide the tasting notes

This is very driven and intense with so much limestone and salt character on the palate. Dark fruits, too. Linear and chewy, especially on the long finish. Beautiful center palate of fruit.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Intense, with juicy layers of fig, boysenberry and blackberry compote coursing through. Bramble and spice notes fire up on the finish, which kicks in with an extra bolt of energy at the end. A showy wine that pulls it off.

Score: 93 - 96 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Of the three properties under the helm of Nicolas Thienpont, the 2017 Beausejour Duffau-Lagarrosse offers the most richness and depth. Blueberries, crème de cassis, graphite, violets, crushed rocks, and spring flowers notes all give way to a structured, vibrant, fresh, yet tannic red that's going to need 3-4 years of bottle age but might end up being one of the top wines of the vintage. Tasted twice. This beauty is made from 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc that was brought in between the 22nd of September and 2nd of October, with yields of 38 hectoliters per hectare (this is 64% of the production). There’s roughly 1,500 cases produced.
