97 Pts, Robert Parker
Château Clinet’s gravelly soils have been producing some of the greatest Merlot-based Bordeaux since the 15th century. Sexy and lush when young then evolving to incredible levels of complexity and elegance with incredible possibility for long aging, Chateau Clinet epitomizes what makes Pomerol one of the sacred places in Bordeaux.

Calling all collectors! Considered by some to be the best vintage of Bordeaux of the past three decades. Ideal dry and long growing conditions in the Left Bank allowed for beautifully balanced wines, with the Lascombes a perfect example of a modern style. Parker called it, “pure, seamless, full-bodied and opulent” and suggested it had another decade plus of prime aging.

Direct from the Chateau Lascombes’s (2nd Growth) Cellar, we have a library vintage of legendary character and depth. Wine Spectator’s 99-pt 2010 in Left Bank saw some of the finest Margaux ever produced. This Second-Growth is an absolute classic, Rober Parker, Jr. called Lascombes’ 2010, “the greatest Lascombes made to date” and called it “One of the great Margaux wines of the vintage.”
Winegrower Pascal Sirat farms his family’s 11 hectare of Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines, rooted in gravelly soils laced with veins of iron-rich clay. He’s got fairly old vines whose roots run very deep in the poor soil, tapping the mineral groundwater far below the surface. The resulting wines are ripe but fresh, with an aromatic complexity and stony finish usually reserved for wine twice the price.
Château Sipian is an extremely well-regarded Left Bank estate with old vines, rooted in the classic gravelly soil of Bordeaux. This creates a perfect setting for making medium bodied, aromatic Cabernet based blends that drink well young, are fantastic at the table and age gracefully in a proper cellar.
Winemaker Emeric Petit is a farmer first, working organically, his vineyards are lush, like gardens. The nose is off the charts in 2016, be sure to drink this wine in a big glass. Violets and blackberries just blast from the glass and continue to evolve….if you can resist, try a bottle of over 3 days. Incredible.
Year in, year out the Chateau Turcaud is one of the best white wines for the price in the world. It’s no wonder it has appeared all over Michelin-starred wine lists in Paris for years. We’ve had it at the restaurant since Day 1 and if you’ve ever tried this stunning Sauvignon Blanc you know why.
